I bought on Tues for $8.80 lol. Sold them this morning for $9.80...still have 1k left but I wrote covered calls against them so those will have to sit for another month. I'll buy the shares back lower.
There, that wasn't so hard, was it? I just wish I had your trading success with DNDN in the past nine months. I was holding 4K at 38.57 when the August collapse occurred. Granted, those were house shares in the sense that I once had 18K shares at 4.10 and sold 6K on the way up to cover my initial investment plus pocket $50K. I sold 10K of the remaining 12K shares at the peak in the 50s (average sell at 54.28), then traded in and out for 15 months to arrive at 4K at 38.57. Eventually sold at 13.56 and re-entered lower.
In an attempt to restore my 100 large, I have 4K at average 9.14. Need pps $34 and change to do that. (At least I lowered my restoration point by $4.40. Better yet, Mitch Gold is gone) It's too big a hill to climb by risking trades for $2,000 pops, so I grimly hold. But there is no weeping here as I am trying to "restore" 100 after putting away hundreds of thousands, and many others here (except Carol) have done. Such is the world of DNDN.
I also made a mistake on the number of shares that I had. I said I had sold 2k but still had 1k that I wrote covered calls on. I actually had 4k shares. I've got so many things going at certain times that I sometimes have a hard time keeping up with everything. If you only knew some of the dumb mistakes I've made that has cost me thousands in profits. I'm not talking about any kind of trading skill, I'm talking about dumb crap like buying or selling the wrong stock because I'm doing too many things at once and not paying attention.
So, yes I've made many mistakes but my comments about my trades are made with a 100% of truthful intention. If I make a claim, I'm always willing to post a snapshot of my trades.
What matters is telling the truth, if you want any credibility. You seem to be fundamentally incapable of admitting a mistake (I won't call it a lie; I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and call it a mistake.) Your buys on TUESDAY were not for 8.80, and I caught you on it.
Admit you made a mistake (we've all made them) and move on. None of this "apology accepted" crap. Tell us that some shares you accumulated in the 8.80s were turned loose this morning, and we'll all give you an attaboy. But don't tell us you turned a TUESDAY trade into a $2,000 gain on Thursday morning.
Look, I am sure you have made substantial trading profits with DNDN, and I have defended you when Carol the Peoria Pig throws her familiar POS in your direction. But you have to be man enough to admit a mistake.
Who gives a crap at what price I bought the stock on any given day. My point was my gain on my shares and that's the ONLY thing that matters. I'm buying and selling many stocks and sometimes I don't always get the price right. In the end I proved my buys as you told me I wasn't holding any shares based on the tone of my posts. I proved that I bought 4k shares. I sold 2k of them this morning and made some very nice quick money.
Here ya go...NEVER doubt me lol. I was off by around .18 on my gain as I was guestimating at the time. Still made about .80 per share pretty quickly....
What a crock! You have posted 100 times (literally) since Tuesday morning, and nowhere is there any indication that you would be buying -- just one declaration after another of a pps drop. Now, suddenly, you declare you made an 8.80 buy and sold it two days later at 9.80 for a buck's profit.
Anybody reading your message history would reach the same conclusion. Now, it's time to hear a refrain of your constant bragging about your brokerage statement. How about announcing your buys in real time, genius, and not two days after incessant bashing?
Wanna make a bet? I'll post my very recent buys but it will cost you. In the meantime, read the post below very carefully especially the part about the tone.
