    Tax selling is yet to follow. Why fight the trend?

    There will be better opportunities in the market and stocks making new high.

    Why sit there with laggards and advise others to pile up losses?

    Eventually you will also sell and find green pastures, I hope sooner, but some folks like to pay a heavy price for learning.

    Good luck!

    Please Watchout and donot let your profits disappear. Kindly do your research and if long term stockholder then stick with your plans.

    As trader I can't help but take profits at new life time new high. I will surely get back soon.

    Let us wait and hear the bid debate next week.

    Yellen story will be played till this weekend, then we get back to realities.

    If buy 2:30pm, EW doesn't bounce then last hour day traders may decide one way or the other.

    Big problem at New High is it very seldom makes new high 3 days in row. This time you be the judge.

    Good luck!

    I just sold V & EW after a nice run up at new high. Now time to help Uncle Sam with Budget deficit.

    As trader time to go out and relax after nice profits. Yesterday before Yellen it could have been nice losses based on market reaction.

    When a stock makes a New Life Time New High, like V and EW today, someone has to take profits.

    You can see the message boards, buy and out.

    Please do not tell me if these stocks close higher, and I was wrong. I now have no position and waiting for better entry, at lower price if possible.

    Near the close these stocks can go down or higher, but that I leave it for others who are wiser investors than me.

    Have a nice weekend.

    Good luck!

    Sincerely,

  • I am a trader and it is good profits for me.

    Please stay if you are long term, it is a very good stock.

    I hope I can come back and buy cheaper soon.

    I think after a nice run up, there is need by traders to take home some profits.

    Good luck!

    Lot of buying due to short covering and index buying. We do not need dividend as company can use funds to buy their own shares. Stock had a split less than a year ago.

    Insiders have options and may exercise and take profits.

    EW will soon become over bought, and then go into trading range.

    Good luck!

    I am a trader and never stay in a stock more than few hours or few days.

    I am now in Visa (V) & Edwards life science (EW).

    Both stocks made new high today. These are market leaders and in the index buying.

    Please read the messages on those boards and you will learn.

    GILD is an old favorite, not for me to be long or short any more.

    Please contribute something others can use for buying or selling.

    I am small investor and there is no need to waste your time fighting my old messages.

    Good luck!

    Very busy trading.

  • On Balance Volume is giving BUY SIGNAL. Short covering after new high starts.
    There is no overhead supply and end of month window dressing.
    We can expect a small trading range to flush out late sellers.

    There are new products in the pipe line, and stock should gradually move higher. It is growth company and not technology, so lot of patience is requiring for long term investors. A 5% advance a year can be expected in next few weeks.

    There are SEVEN PILLARS OF STOCK MARKET PRACTICE necessary for success.
    1. Determine whether the market is in a "bear" or "bull" trend.
    Then determine further whether it is a major, intermediate, or minor trend.
    TRADE WITH THE TREND!

    2. Determine which groups of stocks are the strongest.
    TRADE IN STRONG GROUPS FOR ADVANCE! TRADE IN WEAK GROUPS FOR DECLINE!

    3. Select the strongest stocks in these particular groups.
    TRADE IN STRONG STOCKS FOR ADVANCE! TRADE IN WEAK STOCKS FOR DECLINE!

    4. BUY ONLY ON REACTIONS-not on advances!
    SELL AND SHORT ONLY ON ADVANCES-not on declines!

    5. Place a mental or (if you do not watch the tape) actual stop-loss order of two or three points on your trades.
    BE AT ALL TIMES PROTECTED AGAINST POSSIBLE LOSSES!
    CLOSE OUT WHEN TRADE GOES AGAINST YOU.

    6. Protect your profits by stop-loss orders. Let your profits grow when you see your stocks advancing.
    HOLD OUT FOR LARGER PROFITS!

    7. Do not hesitate to take your profits; you may be able to re-buy the same stock at lower prices.
    SELL WHEN YOU THINK THE MARKET IS DUE FOR A REACTION!
    SELL AT THE TOP * * * NOT AT THE BOTTOM
    BUY AT THE BOTTOM NOT AT THE TOP

    EW Stock rallied on VERY NICE VOLUME and will most likely consolidate at low volume in a trading range.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Very light Volume millions is due to Traders, buying and selling trying to finds bottom and profit taking after nice run up.

    Lot of institutional activity and we can watch and learn from high volatility. V has been trading sideways, and made a nice consolidation, now the Breakout.

    Chart says buy after V make a new high V @ 83.55

    Kindly Google Search, “20 GOLDEN RULES FOR TRADERS

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • We need consolidation soon, profit takers will jump in at the first sigh of weakness. Most trades are 100 - 500 trades, that looks like trades. The volume in the 15 mimutes 110,000 which respectable.

    IBD ETF, FFTY is moving which is very bullish sign.

    With all 30 Dow Jones stocks are up, which creates index buying.

    Before Yellen conference, lot of safe harbor funds were on the sideline.

    There is no panic buying as of now, but more will be know as folks in California get up.

    EW should trade in small 2.50% trading range forbthevstocjnto be more bullish forbthevchartists.
    This momentum May last till this weekend.

    Good luck!

    Sincerely,
    Carolyn Novice

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Early trading short covering, with only 250,000 volume in the first 10 minutes, but there is institutional participation with trades above 500 shares.

    If this momentum continues, it can carry the price between $84 - $85 area for consolidation and accumulation.
    Now that Yellon uncertainty is over, but the debate Clinton & Trum next week over hangs.

    Backing and filling around new high creates bullish chart and removes over hang and profit taking.

    Good luck!

    Sincerely,
    Carolyn Novice

    Sentiment: Buy

  • I am still listening to Yellen press conference.

    Let us see if the volume comes in the last 30 minutes, it is still low but gradual up.

    Good luck!
    Sincerely,
    Carolyn Novice

    Sentiment: Buy

  • Climbing to the peak is a tough job, so is for EW to move above $118.25 - $118.75, this needs new buyers and block trading. So far most trades are 100 to 500 shares. At 10:30am volume 125,000, which respectable.

    We need institutional participation, to climb to the peak. Every time at these levels, sellers lock in profits and stock moves down.

    We may have to wait after Fed minutes at 2:00pm, to get one way or other.

    Long term it is very good buy based on fundamental and technical bases.

    Good luck!
    Sincerely,
    Carolyn Novice

    Sentiment: Buy

  • 1. The company will report its next earnings on Oct 31 – Nov 4 (Est.).

    2. Many analysts are providing their Estimated Earnings 67 cents to 73 cents

    3. Revenue Estimates about 4.22 billion

    4. Growth Estimates 14.5%

    5. 5 years’ future growth 17.7%

    6. Average Price target $91 for 2017.

    Market opened strong today and early strength generally ends up with profit taking. But with all the news, Visa today's action is excellent. Volume around 10:20am is more than million, which is good, price and volume make Momentum, and that is technically a very bullish sign. Also backing and filling above $82.50 - $83.25 is considered as consolidation.

    Good luck!
