  • US Steel (X) broke out on the upside these past
    three days.

    TKR typically lags about a week
    behind, strong steel upswings.

    So, TKR should be
    poised for a big up move soon, may I predict the week of
    December 6?

    I suppose if I post positive enough,
    it'll eventually happen.

    But seriously folks,
    the charts and the fundamentals point to some new
    investment interest in this equity, after an 18 month
    lull.

    Now is the time to buy TKR and just hold it, for some
    good appreciation. The 30's should be in your site
    glass.

    May I have your comment? I would like to read your
    postings, and opinion.

    timing and value

    by Box7 Nov 8, 1999 10:29 AM
    Box7 Box7 Nov 16, 1999 7:29 AM Flag

    I don't really look for percentage gains... in
    other words, I like to buy out of favor, and catch just
    before momentum takes them out of depressed
    condition.

    My timing has been a bit early on
    TKR, but I
    believe it is just getting ready to propel upwards.


    Today, TKR closed on its 200 day MA, it has not done
    that for a long time. So I believe that TKR may be
    ready to go on the up and up, into the 20's
    soon.

    Let's see if this happens.

    Anyway, I patiently
    wait, and let my money work for me. Meantime, I'll take
    the dividend.

  • I note that this board is very quiet. I believe
    this is another sign that the party left a long time
    ago. So values are good, the suckers have moved on to
    dot coms.

    I remain a patient investor, and
    plan to wait until this stock is valued somewhere in
    the mid to upper thirtys... then will reflect what to
    do.

    Dividend allows me to be patient.

    If it stays in
    the teens or low 20's and I have more cash, I'll buy
    more.

    Now have 4000 shares.

    Also have recently
    purchased own X (US Steel), and OS (Oregon Steel). Like
    amounts invested in X and OS (undervalued and out of
    favor). X pays a nice dividend and OS pays almost 6
    percent.

    Good luck to all.

    It's pretty obvious to my eyes, that this is a
    good value.

    It's not like we are talking about
    some hype type "never heard of 'em" computer device
    company.

    This is a world class industrial franchise, that got
    hit hard by the Asian depression, and the oilfield
    recession.

    And the oilfield is coming back.

    And Asia
    seems to have seen the worse.

    So, I believe that
    this is one of those great buying opportunities. Now
    is a good time to buy TKR.

    If not, then TKR
    would be destined for new lows. And I don't believe
    that is going to happen. I believe that TKR would then
    be a nice acquisition, for a holding company like
    Dover, or the like, to come in and put new management in
    place.

    So ... I've been buying a lot in this 18 range, and
    will continue at these price levels. I still believe
    that we will not see the teens again, perhaps this
    week or two, will be the last opportunity to buy TKR
    in the teens this millineum!

    By the way, I'll
    be buying more this week, on the way
    up.

    Let's watch,

    regards

    I don't believe it is the demand from asia,...
    it's lessening of
    the need for the Asian mills to
    dump steel product on the U.S. This gives the opportun
    ity for prices to rise again.

    Mostly
    pyschology, and Wall Street is normally way ahead of hte
    curve with cyclicals, like steel.

    TKR is one
    heck of a franchise - industrial bearings, automarket
    and the aftersales market.

    Look, TKR equity
    is selling at a bargain price, the current market
    situation and cash flow impairment is already discounted in
    the stock price.

    Any surprise or reversal of
    pyschology will send this TKR stock way up up up.


    Plan to see 28-30 sometime within the next 9
    months.

    Most important, it is highly probable that TKR is
    RIGHT NOW getting ready to jump up in price to the low
    20's. If this is the case, you'll not see the teens
    again, in htis century.

    Let's
    see.

    we are close to bottom now.

    take my
    advice, if you plan on buying TKR as an investment and
    are not just a nervous nelly wiggle watcher...buy it
    now.

    You will be rewarded sometime in the next 9 months or
    so, when TKR sees 28-30.

    And take the imminent
    dividend as a nice little bonus for being a shareholder.

    Call me lucky if you must.

    But my first
    trade on EBAY was a winner. I shorted at 187 5/8 in May
    ( and made my first post on this board at that
    time), and covered below 149 ( about the 200 day moving
    average).

    I use common sense, and convergence technical
    analysis ( my brand that works for me - nice discipline).
    I've been watching this EBAY since it went public.
    What a stock! But I plan on staying on the sidelines,
    until I see some more breakdown. Better plays
    elsewhere, with less risk. Like what, you might say? May I
    offer a suggestion?

    Yes, I saw it coming. So I
    made 40+ points. Not bad for about a months worth of
    shorting.

    But I plan on staying on the sidelines, until I see
    some more breakdown. Better plays elsewhere, with less
    risk. Like what, you might say? May I offer a
    suggestion?


    Now I am long oil service stocks. Bought 10,000
    shares of TBI, and also some SLB. TBI will see a pop
    soon. It is now 14 3/8, it'll go up and up these next
    3-6 months.

    good luck to
    all.

    +++++for my German friends:

    Rufen Sie mich
    gl�cklich an, wenn Sie m�ssen.
    Aber mein erster Handel
    auf EBAY war ein Sieger. Ich schlo� bei 187 5/8 im
    Mai (und bildete meinen ersten Pfosten auf diesem
    Brett zu dieser Zeit) kurz, und bedeckt unter 149 (�ber
    den 200 Tageslangfristigen Durchschnittswert einer
    Aktie).

    Ich verwende gesunden Menschenverstand
    und technische Analyse der Konvergenz (meine Marke,
    die f�r mich bearbeitet - nette Disziplin). Ich habe
    dieses EBAY �berwacht, seit es bekannt wurde. Ein was
    f�r Vorrat! Aber ich plane auf dem Bleiben auf den
    Sidelines, bis ich mehr Zusammenbruch sehe. Bessere Spiele
    anderwohin, mit weniger Gefahr. Wie was konnten Sie sagen?
    Mag ich einen Vorschlag anbieten?

    Ja sah ich
    ihn zu kommen. So bildete ich Punkte 40+. Nicht
    falsch f�r einen ungef�hr Monate Wert des Kurzschlusses.


    Aber ich plane auf dem Bleiben auf den Sidelines, bis
    ich mehr Zusammenbruch sehe. Bessere Spiele

    Jetzt bin
    ich lange �lservice-Vorr�te. Gekauft 10.000 Anteile
    von TBI und auch irgendein SLB. TBI sieht einen Knall
    bald. Er ist jetzt 14 3/8, geht er oben und up diese
    folgenden 3-6 Monate.

    gutes Gl�ck zu allen.

  • The entire internet industry is getting ready to
    take a big tumble.

    Yahoo already has started
    it's fall... but it is not obvious to most investors,
    yet.

    Ebay has stayed rather strong to date, but will soon
    crash.
    Low 100's by September. Should be seeing some strong
    down days soon, lots of volatility, not straight down,
    but for long stock holders, my advice is to take your
    profit, and get out of EBAY for a
    while.

    +++++

    What would be so difficult for an IBM or like, to
    emulate EBAY with a similar startup, if the margins look
    good?

    The obvious answer is nothing would stop them, and
    the startup costs would not be that significant. But
    the reason why it has not happened, is because the
    prospects for good margins are just not there
    yet.

    Argue with me if you want... but my money is now on the
    short side.

    And to date, I've never been wrong
    with my shorts.... 20 years + experience.

    good
    luck to all.

    just how short are you

    by howudo Jul 8, 1998 10:47 AM
    Box7 Box7 Nov 21, 1998 8:14 PM Flag

    there is so little interest in this stock, that
    it gives us plenty of time to buy in at these
    wonderful price levels.

    Most money managers would
    not even consider AAON mainly because of its low
    market capitalization. Also, there is not much trading
    done with this equity.

    I think and believe that
    there are only one or two money managers keenly
    watching this equity. They are net buyers, and you will
    see them enter the market from time to
    time.

    Mostly what I see are retail trades, about 1-3 thousand
    shares, and some 200 share type trades.

    Is it true
    that AAON supplies most of the Wal Mart HVAC units?

  • Right, 9 7/8 is not the type of high most people
    report. For example, it is not the high for the year. And
    it is not the all time high ( some years back)
    .

    However, it is an interim closing high. AAON falls into a
    classic
    buy pattern, that is my "discipline". And it is a new
    high on the way for a breakout up. Watch and see.


    AAON sometime very soon will leg up and see maybe 11,
    12 even 13.

    I think ( yes, think) that AAON
    will have a run up for a time period of about 9
    months.

    Let's watch. By the way, I won't post my
    discipline, but it is a good one, and makes me money. So,
    here's one test. And, by the way, if I it doesn't
    happen, I'll get out early enough that it won't
    hurt.

    And I'll post.

    best regards.

    Good buy opportunity

    Box7 Box7 Nov 13, 1998 7:27 AM Flag

    yesterday's close at 9 7/8 (up 7/8)is a new
    closing (interim) high.

    This stock is going up,
    the next week or two will be real good for
    shareholders. I think the next 9 months will be up, up, and
    away.

    good luck to all.

  • timing looks right.... AAON should be rising high
    soon.


    bought today at 9 1/4


    would not be surprised
    to hear that somebody is acquiring these shares...
    this is a good acquisition candidate,... also just a
    good investment.

    what else do you want as an
    investor?.... small cap (less than 7 million shares), nice
    revenue growth, nice profit growth, recent completion of
    facilities to allow for future growth, right product,

    etc etc

    little institutional interest so
    far... what a charm!


    what a buy! i plan on
    buying more.

    best of luck to all

    I sold all my TKR at 41 1/2.

    Today it
    closed at 17 and change.

    I am looking to buy at
    these levels. It should see the 26-28 range within the
    next 9 months, so this looks to be some easy money. In
    the meantime, you get a nice dividend.

    Happy

    Today's close at at about 34 1/2, is a
    shocker.

    Look, I sold at 41 1/2. Am I glad, and
    lucky.

    Soemthing is wrong in the steel sector, and also the oil
    service sector. The market is very pessimistic right now,
    in both areas.

    The close is below the 200 day
    ma. So it is worth paying great attention
    to.

    I am concerned. But no longer a shareholder, just
    looking to buy. But maybe I should put off my
    investments. Not sure, yet.
