    • I got in at 32 and out at 34 because I did not
      see any market follow through. The small profit was
      nothing to brag on so I didn't mention it. When I don't
      argue with the market I keep more profit. Lately I look
      for companies with an excellent balance sheet, low
      debt load, not like HXL. ITWO looks good and is up
      from my entry point, not bad after the roller coster
      we've seen lately. I'll be watching this HXL board.
      Good trading.

    • What do you expect a BOTTOM to smell like?

    • What about ADI? BTW I still have no position in HXL since my last sell at 9 1/16. Why bother to post other than to boast?

    • it may be a rotten smell. I took my loss in HXL,
      went on a trading spree, for a couple of days in PQT,
      PER, LANV, cashed out quickly with a tidy profit and
      went to HD and ITWO for some needed rest. That action
      helped me recoup my losses in HXL. Meanwhile my HD and
      ITWO are up, it is nice to be able to breathe again.
      I'll be watching HXL but will let you keep smelling
      for the bottom, I'd rather go up where the air smells
      fresher.

    • I merely acknowledge an impatient nature.

      Hmph.

    • EGAD this is worst than Alice in Wonderland.
      First Angst's confession as impatient invester and now
      winmore seduced by techs. Opportunistic trader that I am,
      I smell a bottom.

    • may be good advice but I could not stand it
      anymore. I sold today, and moved to greener pastures. Of
      course, you know why the grass is greener on the other
      side of the fence? Because, that's where the manure
      is!!!! Anyway, I choose to go with the high flying techs
      PER and ADI, I may have been sucked in by the updraft
      but I just couldn't hep it.

    • Unsure: You may be right about IO dipping a bit
      further. I think, however, most who were inclined to pull
      out during its Autumn slump have already done so.
      From all info. I can gather, it's a solid company,
      it's just in hibernation.

      HXL's sluggishness
      remains an irritation. Truth be known, I am not a patient
      investor -- These two picks are teaching me that virtue.

    • great! I just took a look at IO after reading
      your posts. Agree that it's quite tempting for the
      long-term. I think it's going to plunk down into the low 5s
      though before it truly bottoms; that's where my limit
      order is going to be... THANKS for the tip.

      Go
      HXL!!!!

    • Couldn't resist but although both cyclical
      "value" plays IO has big time insider buying and better
      financials. IO may be a take over ala WAI or a turnaround
      play on the energy sector. One screaming buy for the
      patient investor at these levels. First made aware of it
      by well respected technical analyst @ 16 "best buy";
      glad I didn't. At these levels, I couldn't resist
      initial partial position. FA & TA stink but insiders,
      valuations, and financials make the case. HXL's looking
      better; worst may be behind unless economic strength
      causes Fed change.
      Hang tough and resist selling as
      soon as you get even!

      regards
