Good luck with the new home, Phil. A man's home is his castle. My wife used to go hog wild purchasing new furniture whenever we moved.
Regarding GILD, I still have not purchased any yet. The short term indicators for GILD aren't very pretty right now. None are saying "buy", 2 are saying "hold" and 3 are saying "sell". I'm gonna wait some more before buying. I see that Spirit Airlines is up to $42.20 this afternoon. I still have 2,000 shares of FTR. Big disappointment thus far. FTR dividend payment date is tomorrow.
It's at $80.35 right now, down $1.02. If it falls below $80 this afternoon, I'll hold out longer and see if I can get some around $78 or $79 and dollar cost average from there. Don't think many stocks will advance early this week with the Donald and Hillary show on tonight.
Spirit (SAVE) is up about 2.6% on heavy volume. The other carriers are down today. Barron's still can move a stock, even in a crummy down session like today.
Jack Willoughby, Barron's Senior Editor, wrote an article in the 9/26/16 edition which proposes that the SAVE share price could be on the verge of taking off. Supposedly 2017 could be a big year for SAVE with cost saving measures and increased efficiencies favorably impacting. Per the AMTD website, the stock is rated favorably by Standard & Poor's, TheStreet (honest Jim Cramer's outfit) and Credit Suisse. Like all of the airlines, Spirit has a roller coaster. Probably too risky for an old guy like me.
Yes sir. No long term holding with them. Just some fairly quick in and out trades. That approach worked well for me a couple of years ago.
thewisejman, look at a one year chart of DIS. It hasn't been good as a "long term" hold. Also, support broke down and it failed to break through $100 last July. What do you think?
Hi Phil. I've got a couple of cousins who live In Fredericksburg, Virginia. One of them called me tonight and mentioned that she has to go to a wedding being held in Charlotte, NC this coming Saturday. It was semi-humorous as she really doesn't want to go, due to the unrest the city is experiencing at this time. However, it's her husband's brother who is getting married and she must go. Question: How widespread is the "demonstration" in Charlotte? Hopefully they are able to contain the demonstrators.
Still have not bought anymore FTR. I'm going to add when it gets into the 3.90's.
Good advice Phl. I blew it by holding out for more pull back and never even picked any up. Missed today's nice advance. Darn!
Janet knows that she is not Trump's favorite economist. Therefore, for purposes of job security, it behooves her to try and prop up the markets in hopes of helping honest Hillary Obama.
Stock analysts can be real bozos!
9/16/16 Nasty Citi Research says to sell with a $3 target.
9/12/16 Deutsche Bank says to buy with a $6 target.
Since I own some F-T-R, I'm rooting for Deutsche Bank in this case.
(For some goofy reason YAHMOO killed two posts when I type the company symbol in a normal way. That is why I typed F-T-R.)
