Not west TX ... very rural south central Michigan. Sandhill cranes, 6' wingspan, awesome voices. Like me. <g>
Re MIK (and CHS, my other retail sector holding)... getting nervous about short term after such quick runups, so am setting mental stops. Will probably rationalize my way past them, though. Wish I were more disciplines. Cheers.
Are you an IBD disciple? I too own CHS and MIK. I have "mental stops" also. I believe the "guys in the know", know where the stops are set, can somehow lower the price on a stock to scoop up the stops and then let the stock resume it's upward trend. I have mental stops that I firmly stick to. The % below the current price where the M.S. is set depends on the volatility of the stock. Some stocks need a little more lee-way. I have a 10% M.S. set on MIK.
