Bought 2575 back at 15.9231 'cause that's all the cash I had in an IRA. Still have an open buy in the taxable account but I doubt the limit will be reached. Buying for dividend and earnings, not necessarily for a flip.
We're essentially back to where we were last Fri before the rumor round trip. I think under 16 is a decent buy as I believe we are in for a nice ride up this year. Should be an interesting CC.
Dar - where are we on earnings announcement? Thought I remembered them being this week, then something passed by yesterday? (I was away a lot from the screen) about them being postponed. Am thinking about getting back with the options I sold yesterday in the morning. Went from feeling foolish for having sell order in at ~16.30 on the May 15's ( a triple) when I came back and saw NRF a 1.30 above that to feeling really good this morning when it was down a 1.20 to realizing my portfolio was taking a many thousand dollar hit lol.
My crystal ball on calendar items broke. I expected May 2 for earnings and tomorrow for dividend announcement which is consistent with last year.
I think they had too many things going on demanding cfo attention....like negotiating with arcp and trying to close multiple properties in the healthcare deal to get the books closed. These things probably also kept the lawyers and accountants working like one-armed paper hangers. Not enough hands and heads to get it all done for this week.
I suppose we could get surprised, but now I expect next week, which is not a problem for me.
