Dar'n! And I was wishing that it would be below $37 so I could get back in after converting everything into cash. It was due to a possible transfer to Suretrade, but since they were sitting on their hands, I went to Waterhouse. They had bought Kennedy Cabot, where I held my shares, and when I finally talked to them I was online in about 10 minutes. Thanks to everyone who offered thir advise when I asked, but sometimes it comes down to convenience. In the mean time I got rid of 1000 shares of Orbital at 36.75. Now you know why I don't make predictions on this board. I have noticed so many predictions, on this and other boards, and when the stock goes in the other direction, there is a blessed silence, at least for a while.
a few posts back I "predicted" a resistance ceiling of 38-40, so I closed out my apr 30 calls at 38 1/2, indicating I would sit on the sidelines until the stock pulled back. This gives rise to two questions--
1. Does that make me a "guru"? 2. To whom do I send an invoice for a mostly "correct" prediction?
Sorry about that Greyz1, sounds as if you were getting bad advice all around. Don't want to be critical, but hope your new broker does better!!
I've been that route several times, and I just effected a transfer of stock from broker to broker, thereby not losing ownership. There was however a small transfer fee. Perhaps your situation was different - or worse case your old broker saw the chance for a last comission!!
At any rate posting for the good of others who might be considering the same move.
I read a lot of boards. This is one of the better. Lots of positive feedback from lots of knowledgeable posters. I've learned a lot. I'm long and will buy more. Great Company, Great Future. Happy Thanksgiving to all, and good investing!
In the spring, 1999, 170 buses working out of 126street in Manhattan will participate in this pilot program.. essentially, avlc creates a smart bus. When a GPS receiver and various sensors feed data into a small computer installed on board the bus.the vehicle will be able to determine its location decide whether it is early or late and on or off route, using its radio system, a smart bus can communicate its position to a command center.
