I think and Imagine that the right call was made on your sell decision (sell all at 29.50) and now missing the "BIG DIVIDEND" of .02 cents ...missed out on $200 ....on 10,000 shares....wish I did that also ....share that next time Queen! Let's see you missed 200 and made several thousand...
Stay in touch, you were/are the glue.
Thanks Krug. I will be on this board whether I own or just wished I owned TXT. Got squeezed out- seemed like the right decision at the time. At these dividend rates, it never crossed my mind that I will lose the dividend- goes on to show how many income investors Textron is losing by ignoring more reasonable dividend.
I will watch it and if it crosses the previous high of $29.75, will jump in a minute on breakout signal. May be it was always on upward trajectory and breifly touched the technical level of $27.71 due to the mood of the sequester moment. I ignored my own technical analysis discipline and acted like a day trader, lost out and now waiting and watching. All of you hard working Textron employees and smart investors, better hang on to your shares. dont be like me. Still believe, it is going to 60s next year- my mistake, just tried to pick the top.
Lesson- Never fight Uncle Ben. Stick with the fundamentals and techncial analysis in buying decisions and don't listen to politicians.
my problem has been NOT taking profits ... this was over $60 for most of 2008 and I failed to pull the trigger beforenthe crash even though warning were fairly clear and old Lew Campbell sold large at that time ...
