    EXPLOSIVE BREAKOUT IMMINENT::::::::::::

    Breakout of 20-30 points imminent.

    This thing is about to explode.

    Not necessarily today or tomorrow, but imminently.

    The things to be watchful and careful about are:
    1) ***Bernanke's speech at a luncheon TODAY about noon-1pm EDT.
    2) **** EMPLOYMENT DATA Friday, May 5 at 8:30am EDT.
    3) ***FOMC meeting results on Wednesday, May 10.
    4) **** RETAIL SALES Indicators. Thursday, May 11 at 8:30am EDT.
    5) ***GOOG Shareholders meeting Thursday, May 11.
    6) ** INT'L TRADE balance numbers. Friday, May 12 at 8:30am.

    There are several others, but the above are most likely to affect markets and GOOG.

    • Once again, for the record, I am still expecting an imminent breakout of 20-30 points on GOOG as I first posted last Wednesday, May 3.

      Here's a paste-up:

      • 20-30 point jump on Wed on major announcements!!

      • There is a very good chance that we see the early stages of that breakout develop today based on the upcoming shareholder meeting this week.

        Honestly, shorts....you have had some nice gains off and on but you really have lost out overall heavily since the $85 IPO. Now, you flounder around with GOOG when it is TOTALLY on fire with a nearly 120 point gain just in the last 32 days or so alone!!

        You had better cover and go long on one of the down cycles on these volatility waves you're seeing and going to see for today and perhaps through Wednesday latest....because when they end, you will see another strong rally up to the 460-475+ areas by or WELL BEFORE next Monday, May 1. Suit yourself, but these represent a bit of a chance to still convert.

        There is nothing but good news for GOOG ahead. As I said 2 weeks ago, waves and waves of good news would come....well, it is happening. Even the 4th Qtr BS On Jan 31 was just that...BS. WAY overreactionary! We will QUICKLY close in on the pre Q1 highs of 475 as just ROUTINE BUSINESS!!

        We're going to at least the 541 area (as I said 2 weeks ago) DAMN soon.....within 10-20 days or so. Just to catch up where we SHOULD be. Then it's onward and upward to the 600s, 700s, and 800s well within this year year.

        And, yes, I do still see intraday highs as high as $1300 a share as early as April 2007.

        Contract settlements are going to help add to some volatility factors in the first 3 days this week but there will be a good upward bias with a strong upward climbing after Wednesday if not before.

        Expect at least 460-475 by no later than a week from today...by Monday, May 1.

        Probably sooner. Perhaps much sooner.

      • Here's a reminder that some posters here don't need, but I'll put it out there nonetheless: During most trading days, more money exchanges hands in the buying and selling of GOOG than occurs in the trading of any other equity in the U.S. stock market. That means every mutual fund manager, every hedge fund manager, and every individual trader with a lot of money at his or her disposal is watching GOOG all day long EVERY SINGLE DAY. But it sure doesn't seem like that's the case when GOOG's trading volume is in the 6-8 million share range, and when the price stays in a one percent trading range day after day after day.

        So when GOOG drops over 60 points after pretty darn good earnings, everyone on Wall St. who matters is very interested in such a development. Since funds (not retail) control the GOOG stock price due to the high cost per share, it's obvious that a large fund or funds has made a decision to reduce their position in GOOG. If you are a fund manager who might be interested in buying GOOG, why get in the way of a persistent seller(s)? Fund managers who have been patient can now buy GOOG 55 points cheaper than they could right after earnings, but--who knows--maybe GOOG will fall EVEN FURTHER. One never knows in advance when persistent sellers will be finished, but to savvy fund managers on Wall St., it will be clear in real time when these sellers are done. And at that point, GOOG will rebound VERY quickly, which will get the mo-mo funds involved and then shorts will start covering.

        Of course, negative news re: GOOG will trump all of the above, as will a general market meltdown. But my bet is that neither of the above will occur in the near future, and so I will continue to hold my shares, despite a fairly significant paper loss. Good luck to all you small traders/investors.

      • ITM, It would seem the obvious thing for GOOG to make a run after so many down days. I think too obvious. Today I think most buyers want to hear what EBAY and MSFT will say, and then there is the MSFT conference call tomorrow.

        Unfortunately I think Google is in a "show me" state. Buyers are REALLY spooked after the "slow crash" last week because it made no sense.

        Here is the important message here>>>

        Google is not the stock it was prior to 1/31. Everyone is worried about competition. Period.

        Google will have to hammer out earnings Q after Q to make any progress on the stock,

        OR,

        they will have to issue some big news, which I hope happens! They have not capitalized on their stock price yet and they need to get off their butts and do so.

        BUY SINA for instance!!

        Caution is the word for this week.

        Hey itm, since you seemed to free up some time, want to let your followers know when you sell the may calls you have been holding since last Thursday??

        For the record, and as previously posted, here are some updates on some of my current holdings insofar as GOOG is concerned, not including existing shares:

        200 contracts MAY 440 calls. Average = 9.40.
        200 contracts MAY 450 calls. Average = 7.30.
        100 contracts MAY 460 calls. Average = 6.50.


        Or will they expire worthless????

        For the record oh course....

      • I have a limit buy in for 1000 at 400. Took my shorts off the table this morning. GOOG seems to like this 395 level.

    • So, are you saying bet with him (long) or against him (short)???????

    • please_give_me_all_thefacts please_give_me_all_thefacts May 3, 2006 1:47 PM Flag

      You are kidding right?

      We already figured out that itm2000 is:

      40ish
      single
      male
      postal worker in back room
      fat
      bald


      errr, what else???

      Just kidding itm!

    • dood, get a new keyboard or turn off the stupid caps lock

      and learn to spell!

    • I would not be too quick to counter or bet against itm2000!! I speak from experience! This dude has been around since at least 1995 that i know of. He'd get into huge flamming wars against all the shortie boys on the techie boards like msft, csco, dell, intc, yhoo. Loves the techs! Had already made his bucks on the ride up on techs from the pre 1990 beginnings!! Rumors are that he has been a client of hedge funds like ltcm! Don't know if he still is!!! Anyone else here know??? I do not read alot of stuff here, but i see him mentioned whenever i am here!

      this whole thing he has with shorts is all made up!!! He loves it!! That is his entire game!!! To suck in the shorties!! It is how he does it that is interesting and clever!! Very manipulative!! Only thing he hates is the lack of shorties and short interest and bears everywhere!! I think he even creates bashers against him if there aren't any of them. I have focused on being short alot of the time and that's how he got my attention a long time ago!

      he is one clever fucker!! Just to give you guys the heads up!! He is watched by others!! You should too!

      he'll anchor himself to one or two boards on stocks that he likes alot, but rarely talks about himself at all!!

      he knows what he is doing!! And is a master of deception and disguise!! No matter how fucked up and upside down he might appear to get, this dude always ends up landing on his feet a-runnin! We used to call him "teflon man".

      you have been warned!! Mark my words!! Mark this post!!

    • It's spelled "eccentric," gin. I mean, frisky. Or whichever assclown names you feel like calling yourself these days.

    • let me see if I understand your logic here. you said "It depends on what the average entry level was on the May 440, 450, 460 calls. I clearly sdaid to buy at OR BELOW those prices. I gave the upper range of entry, but, the fact is, by the time I posted that post it WAS IMPOSSIBLE to buy at those levels because the prices HAD ALREADY DROPPED LOWER AND WERE CONTINUING TO DROP."

      so because the price dropped below the level you stated they were a buy, it would be impossible to buy at those lower prices?

      I think you should stop giving investment advise and take an investment management course (101)

    • please_give_me_all_thefacts please_give_me_all_thefacts May 3, 2006 12:48 PM Flag

      No problem itm,

      So I take it to mean YOU WON'T dump YOUR May call contracts (500 total contracts) but let them expire worthless? Thats a $399,000 hit.

      And yes I agree. The May options dropped AFTER you recommended that people buy them.

    • It depends on what the average entry level was on the May 440, 450, 460 calls. I clearly sdaid to buy at OR BELOW those prices. I gave the upper range of entry, but, the fact is, by the time I posted that post it WAS IMPOSSIBLE to buy at those levels because the prices HAD ALREADY DROPPED LOWER AND WERE CONTINUING TO DROP. NO ONE could have paid those prices AFTER my post...they have NEVER since been that high.

      BTW, since my first entries into those options were PRIOR to the E/R at and before the fact of when GOOG was between 400 and 407, ALL of my average entries are considerably lower and have been clearly posted. And I've shown, admittedly, that I'm in the red ON AVERAGE.

      That said, at the very least, I erred there in that I could have entered the trades LOWER. But, I have continued to post ways through all of this and the jury is still out on what the end results will be.

      I have LOTS of hedges in place including early entries into 380, 390, 400 puts in months from MAY-Dec that were mostly entered at GOOG peaks in the 440s+. I have also HEAVILY averaged down on ALL my calls from the 390s through the 450s ALL THE WAY THRU JAN2008 OEs!! So, I have A LOT OF COLLECTIVE TIME that I'm WELL vested in. I WILL COME OUT WAY, WAY, WAY AHEAD...I ASSURE YOU..IN THE OVERALL STRATEGY OF INVESTING HEAVILY IN GOOG CALLS BETWEEN THE 4390 and 450 STRIKES IN MONTHS WHICH ARE over 75% BEYOND MAY. AND THAT is my message, suggestion, and recommendation!!

      I wonder how many of you assholes will come forward if all of these prove to be hugely profitable!!! Yeah....right....you turds will VANISH into VAPORS.

      But, then.....What else is new!?
