LAST DIV WAS PD 3/28/13. Div today is 2.5 according to Fidelity. Money continues to leave perceived safe harbors and some of that is finding a home in this name. GL
IDK? Getting paid for bad advice is a dream job, eh? No one is forced to listen to this guy and ,even less so, send him $ for the privilege. In fact. It could be argued that it is immoral Not to separate fools and their $? I suspect many here have done very, very well with their VTI holdings without an ounce of market timing since their purchase?
Why aren't you on the QIHU board singing its praises then? You're here because?
Markets throwing a little tantrum as Ben doesn't promise to be accommodative until the end of time. But economic data out of the region is supportive of more accommodation and not less. Nikkei has had a monster run-up and gave back a small piece but China and Japan have not been acting in concert. A large decline like you mention in BIDU would attract buyers.....myself included.

If you ask that kind of question? A good idea to sell a portion of your position into this quick move, imo
Don't be concerned. Many unhappy folks here as the whip-saw action in this name has bloodied noses on the bulls for months and then the bears with an astonishingly quick reversal and rapid ascent, as they were leveraged the other way......OUCH!!!! People who get punished this way want anyone who managed this profitably to join their pain party. So just grin and bear it.
Sounds like you have a strategy already, 816? Stay with what you know, is my nickle advice. The old days of posting you mention won't return here anytime soon, if ever? But reading some of this stuff can put bad ideas in your head. you're much better off without those. gl!
no matter what one's particular persuasion was/is as 2013 started I think close to all hands are a little shocked at what this tape says today on may 3rd? I'm talking in all asset classes. Leaves long-time market participants a little humbled o bear witness to these things.
