Great job Jana! Ever since your blue team started the Agrium civil war, AGU's stock has fallen. I thought Jana was supposed to unleash Agrium's true potential. The only thing unleashed has been stockholder's lack of trust. So today I sold 1/2 of my shares. True, I am only a small shareholder, but I think all of AGU shareholders - both small and large are getting quite worried about when the stock will hit bottom. Abbaman7 is a very savvy investor in this space and even he is concerned. The Agrium shareholder's meeting had better hire lots of security. Things might get ugly.
BRLI posts RECORD earnings and revenue and their stock plunges over 9%. What's wrong with this picture? Either the shareholders are dead wrong, or, as I suspect - Mr. Shortie is back. Not long ago when Apple shares dropped from $625 to about $590, I took that opportunity to increase my holdings by 25%. Now their shares are trading north of $650+. Yesterday, when BRLI shares dropped 9+% on RECORD earnings and revenue, I increased my holdings 17%. Today an analyst has increased his target. I would strongly suggest that shareholders start buying back their shares before Mr. Shortie has to cut bait and buy back. BRLI is a leader in their field and is very-well run by the CEO.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
The entire market is oversold. Commodities lead the herd in being the most oversold. I can almost guarantee SLV And gold will climb tomorrow. why? because I sold 25% of my SLV shares. If Greece were to leave the rest of the Euro and go on their own, I think the world economy would give a sigh of relief!
Cramer is a showman. He likes to mention stocks he holds in his "charitable trust" , as though that lends some credibility. jpm is the new pru. Jamie diamond beware. They will be calling for your head soon. Lets see if jpm drops 15%. People who invest in stocks must assume risk. If that were not so, everyone could be rich. Perhaps you might be advised to get 1+% guanteed at any bank CD. I, am a senior also and am not happy with the market today. Keep the faith and wait for better days.
The earnings shortfall was about 9%. To date, the stock value has fallen about 15%. I think that is too much and should soon start to correct itself. That is unless enough shareholders insist on having the CEO's head on a plate. Perhaps some of them are shorting this stock? Furthermore, the analysts' target price is still $66/share with a fair value price of $59.60. PRU is oversold by almost 17%!
EBIX is currently selling off before their earnings report. A similar pattern had developed last week with the stock BRLI. That stock beat expected earnings by 23%. Rather than following what institutional buyers are doing, check what insiders are doing; namely, buying. Good luck to all.
Medco loses an important contract and their share price rises. CVS wins that contract and their shares drop. What's wrong??? I just bought more.
Su beat their estimates by a very good margin and said they want to increase their dividends. Then the stock goes down more than 5% ???
What's wrong with that!? Sounds like a buy to me.
Thanks! Your handle,"thoughtful", was well-chosen. I strongly agree with most of your comments. Ben Bernanke, strong USA, importance of jobs, etc. Your experience as a businessman with Wall St background lends support to your optimism. I hope you are right. BTW, I gave your reply a 5* rating. I hope I did it right.
... it has been replaced with a plethora of other maladies; including (but not limited to) the dreaded Financial Fever, severe Gastritis, Tech Thrombus, etc.
I have never seen such a difference in opinions re what an investor should do for say a period of 5-years forward. I bought more shares on Teva's 2-week old downturm, because I have great faith in their products, leadership and acquisitions (I am a former Barr Labs shareholder). While I hold shares in all the aforementioned sectors, I am less confident in their near-term recovery.
"Deepthought", if you read this message, I would appreciate any comments you might offer. Meanwhile, sit back and enjoy the weekend while sipping a cup of coffee - on me.
... is anybody home?
From the dearth of messages on this board one would think IFF has expired - yet, supposedly they are doing quite well. In fact I recently bought some shares just to receive the annual report. At least that might shed some light on an otherwise black hole.
...the "Generic Flu" that is-at least for now. Just got back from vacation and it would appear that Teva's stock has recovered somewhat. That is not to say Mr. Market or Teva is off to the races. Perhaps the next sectors to be hit: a FINANCIAL FEVER, or maybe a touch of GASTRITOUS. Who knows?
Here's a question for Deepthought.
I read one of your posts that stated your UBS advisor gave you some pause for concern re Teva. Could you be more explicit? I only ask because you seem to post mostly helpful statements.
Interesting theory, but if it were true, most people would have sold Teva short just to see Cramer pull the trigger.
Now- here's what really happened! THE GENERIC FLU. A viscious and highly contagious virus that has been contracted by several of the more popular generics of late. WPI, MYL, and TEVA have all had the runs lately. Now it would seem that TEVA and WPI have started to recover and MYL is also showing signs of recovery as well. Who knows how they contracted this thing. Many fled-some bought, and most held. Only time will tell. The best remedy I might suggest would be to stop watching the patients every day. Give them some privacy. How would you like it if everyone was watching you recover from a case of the trots??
