Don't know why everyone stayed in this stock. MaxDaddy brought it up as a "the drug is great, The company administering the drug is sloppy, all the deaths are because of the administration." Then that theory died when it was released that multiple administrating centres were at fault. This is when I realized Max was full of #$%$. I got out and recommended you guys do the same. You guys stayed in - I never got it. And where is Max these days??? After QCOR got bought I expected him to come gloat to the shorts at least a little (I mean, right?) but he's gone.
The money I put in I cut for losses at purchase. The news had no affect on me in regards to money lost. It is the "what could have been" that plays a dull financial cord. Eh, it'll be the first loss I booked in a long time. If Affy dumps to a dime in the first few minutes of trading, I'm going to hold for some back door, rabbit hole chance. I know, I know, money saved is money earned. Well, at a dime only represents 6% of my outlay. For that amount I'll hold or wipe me #$%$ with it.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
yep, seems like a gambled wrong with AFFY! And i actually put a lot of money into it too but at least the long wait is over.
I'm curious how much money i can still salvage on monday.
Good thing is i'm up big time with QCOR so i can take the hit but i'm not happy..... i was happy not so long ago when we kicked spain's butt with soccer lol
Ow well... live and learn!
You were in my thoughts about this. I had hoped you had had sold off some - yes, live and learn. Binary events are to be avoided, IMO, much better off with long term holds unless one is a proficient trader. The problem with binary is one thing unexpected can go wrong - think QCOR last October - but if you have something great and are willing to wait - thing QCOR if you bought 2 years ago.
So, after a number of experiences, I keep shrinking down what I am willing to risk on binary events.
All that matters, though, is that you have enough funds for what you need for now - the future exists only in our imaginations. While we need to plan for it, it is in the eternal present that we live.
Glad your soccer team won - they deserved it. Still a long ways to go, eh?
I guess it's not trade-able in the AH, is it?!. So Monday morning will be a blood bath, I assume. Well, I only have a small position anyway, worth a night or two of fun at a casino. Was worth a shot!
Since you brought up AFFY, where are the investigation results? They only gave one sentence saying they didn't find any manufacturing defects? That's all investors got for their year and a half supposed "investigation"? How can they not give a detailed report? (if not T then AFFY)? Something really stinks.
Good call, Mikey. I have had doubts ever since you brought yours up, because I know the level and ability of your research. I have gone back and forth and almost sold off earlier today just to create a tax loss, thinking I might or might not but back in late July. Sigh. So it becomes the tax loss but a bigger one. I would have sold it a long time ago if I hadn't believed that QCOR would at some point give me a great tax gain - had planned all along to make AFFY a short term loss if necessary - but now - by time they wrap it up, will be a long term loss - hadn't stopped to realize I could end up in that situation.
