I bought a decent number of shares at 15.59 last week and the same amount today at 15.36. It is lower now. I based my decision of the "intrinsic value" I think that I am getting in my calculations for the stock. I admit that I do hold for some time. I asked for opinions and thoughts earlier on this message board and really did not get comments. I know that I would appreciate them, though.
Now I feel as though I paid too much?? Seriously, I am glad that I had the chance to buy some today at 15.36. I tend to keep longer term, and I know that I will get a decent return on the mid-$15 range prices I paid.
FWIW I have been a holder of EZPW since the FDIC crisis in 2005 and prior to today had an avg cost pre-split around $12.50 (now $4+ post-split). Given the runup and other holdings in this sector, I had taken partial profits to manage the position size but bought a small 100-share lot today at $15.03.
Very risky what you are doing. But who knows???? I am holding my shares and I am hurting really bad today. But I refuse to sell my shares on panic. I cannot tell you like quo that this is a sure bet. It has turned very risky lately. But volatility is part of ez.
