New blog!! at the address in the thread title above. Paste in your url and press enter. Along the top of the page you will see three "about" themes. "The Rules", I keep updated, "DocReits", a little history and the "Glad/1.5% Model", the genesis of Glad.
Along the left side of the page you can select the "recent posts" and under that the "recent comments". This is , bar none, the most easy and intuitive blog site I have ever seen, or created. Hang out, comment, have some coffee. Post links to other pages without the Yahoo censors and enjoy, or just listen to me talk to myself with my soliloquies.
Best to all,
Hi Doc, so glad you've made a blog! Bookmarked it, plan to read it and comment when I have something useful to add. Trying to find time to get back into more active trading again and devote a little less time to restaurant marketing now.
Thanks for the link. I was finally able to read the Glad rules I have been reading about and will give them some thought.
I am normally a trend follower with fundamentals being my "don't buy" gate keeper realizing that many stocks on a new rapid up trend are often over priced because expectations of high EPS growth in the future is priced in.
However, I am not opposed to making money other ways if the methodology is sound. It seems the glad rules make no mention of how to buy, whether outright or with options. It's just a trigger point.
I do have a little bit of quandary today. Unfortunately I have made too much money on TSLA to the point that owning it is starting to looks unwise however I don't want to get out of this stock as I just got in it. It seems to be in the midst of a short squeeze and thus the short covering is causing upward pressure beyond what is justified. After close today they report earnings and if there is anything less than absolute optimism reported I fear the shorts will get their chance to cover at a lower price. I need to think of a way to weather this situation without losing my gains. Unfortunately the implied volatilities are through the roof thus hedging with puts would be expensive and a trailing stop won’t work if the price drops well below the sell price in after market. I guess a partial hedge with puts is the way but I hate to throw away good money if the earnings report causes more of a rise.
That "house" looks a lot like a little place outside of Paris called Versailles.
i don't think it is for sale. Nor would it be comfortable to live in.
But sure is a nice place to visit.
I really need your good advice as we are well into our eighties and maybe don't see all that you do. Would love to ask your opinion on some basic AGNC questions as we have been scared out of our wits
I have tried all of my browsers and they all work(Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome). Make sure you spell docreits correctly and then " dot " you know what(:c:o:m:), without the colons and voila. Let me know if that still does not do it...;-)
Once there, make a request via a comment and I will approve it and once done you are good to go.
