The only plausible conclusion is
that maybe Asia is hurting us more than we all want to
believe. Could it be that the manufacturing sector is the
bellweather of this and not the technology sector? If so, the
rest of the market is sure to follow. Hope not, but
then again, it'd be nice to buy low and ride up the
next bull market. The older babyboomers who have
cashed in on this cow and have seen their mutal funds
and 401ks rise exponentially must be shaking in their

Nice one fred, you almost appear to know what you
are talking about until one realizes you're just a
paid, board spamming idiot, selling the Blockhead
charts. If it was really true that the Blockhead traders
have an effect or actually knew what end was up in
this market, you would not have to sell your sight and
charts on these threads.
Just remember, the
"BETA" test in your financial endeavor, will be in the
correlation between the efficacy of your charts and the
willingness of someone to pay for such.
Nice try Ol
Fred, good luck with your dayjob.
I worked for a parker location and was very
disappointed in the management mentality. Our facility was
relocated due to consistently being in the red. However the
people with all of the product knowledge were not
relocated with the product. The closing of the one facility
will be complete in a couple of weeks and I do not
believe that any product has yet been manufactured at the
new facility. I would not want to be a customer at
this time. To the best of my knowledge no data mapping
has occurred. I think that they are going to fill a
truck with inventory and send it on it's
The BUM was too new to hand off a business unit to.
Rather than put him in a position to gain more
experience he has been promoted. Go figure, there is a
loyalty issue within Parker. As long as you are loyal to
the company and willing to relocate they will take
care of you. This will catch up to them soon, the
stock prices indicate to me that it already has started
to catch up with them.
Purchasing stocks requires differentiation
between two major risk factors: Market risk, ie.
performance of the market as a whole up or down; and Specific
risk, ie. what your selected stock does, up or down.
The two are only partially linked, beta really
doesn't tell you very much, especially about buy/sell
points. It may seem basic but purchasing stocks with
limited downside is the best way to save yourself the
angst of specific risk worries. The notion that a stock
can only go to Zero frankly, begs the question of
what the downside risk really is. www.blockdesk.com
reports upside and downside risk daily, in meaningful
terms, based on an analysis of what major investors see
as reasonable price points. And since volume
(liquidity) comes from the big boys, you ought to take their
thinking into account.
