Can you worry mongers, band wagon fans just stop worrying
Selling at this price to only get it cheaper is the reason people LOSE money in the market. You have to tell yourself beforehand what your price to sell will be and the price you will buy it at and stick to it. You never have a loss until you sell, dummy. Buy more and stop complaining and whimpering like a puppy who is afraid to walk. Man, that is why the dd's have stopped writing on this board. Buy and enjoy the ride. Earnings good (check) dividend good (check). So play around between those days, buy long puts to feel safe. Damn. Penny Panties Fool Card Morons. For instance I hope Hts sucks at least until tomorrow for me to add cheap calls, which will triple in value in late June. Selling at a loss is idiotic unless you have stocks like washington mutual. This stock ain't no mutual yet, not even close!
your thesis that you never have a loss until you sell is just plain wrong. A stock is only worth what the market is willing to pay for it. People hang on to losers for years, because they delude themselves into thinking like you do. That has nothing to do with this stock in particular, but a loss is a loss, whether you have established it for tax purposes or not.
Are you referring to me with the dd? Regardless, I do agree with you, I am hurting on the options, really got screwed with the Apr 28s, but I'm still hanging on to my Jun and Jan12. I don't get whats going on here, but I'm still not going to sell, I think we will be right back to where we were once the earnings is released.
The dirty dozen, dd's- Ben, cat, doc, rim, 2 Jim's and others. If you have a chance add to the jan's not the june's, in my opinion. The June will be good for the earnings, but not more. Or, wait for the April to end and then they will build a July or august and get those. They might be pricier because they are new, but the dividend will be good. Sorry about the April's. Always sell when there is a first wave of profit, don't wait for the second one. I know it's tough, was burned a couple of times before hoping for huge percentage shots and got greedy. Now I do not do that anymore. GLTU
