Tell me about it! Even my lousy SALE and KORS stocks after an initial pluge on reports, got back right up in a few days... the one time I decided to sell a portion of them like I should have last earnings but stupidly didn't.
When I saw TASR missed, I was calmly expecting a 10% drop at most and was cool with that. I never saw 15%.
Most times around earnings I kick myself for forgetting to buy puts for various stocks. But this time round I can honestly say that even if I remembered to consider puts, TASR was one stock I would simply never have chosen to do so for. So in a perverted way I don't feel bad. I could not have anticipated this ridiculous 14-16% drop.
What irks me is DGLY in comparison keeps flying high when fundamentally it's nowhere in sight compared to TASR.
Oh that is such terrible news! I'm really worried now because AAPL's main customers were always intended to be government!
If I'm that lucky enough to see a big stupid reaction dip, to this or other news (maybe MMs will finally do me a favour this time) I have cash just waiting to be fired.
I'm very confident we'll see AAPL at prices between $75-81 again.
After a split.
Lol I must say that long as I am, I found this funny.
"Everything affects KORS stock price, except positive news."
As in like it's funny cause it hurts.
Stupid thing is the one time I decide to do on earnings day what I should have done many earning days before, like sell 20% with the drop, it bounces back to even at end of day and then goes up from there. Hopefully we'll see some continued increase. At this point in time I'm looking to just sell at a minimum loss.
For the last few earnings I've seen KORS get trashed whichever way. It was stupid of me not to get out and I'm not going to keep on compounding my mistake. KORS the company may be a good business but KORS the stock has been a POS stock. I am outta here.
It's ridiculous. DGLY is an obvious short. The problem now is with it benefiting with all the TASR positive news even more than TASR itself, I'm finding it hard to decide where to open my position in DGLY.
I'm long this stock, but farqtards like you are a real embarrassment. I cannot believe half the comments I read on Yahoo MBs aren't made by children.
Dafuq.... DGLY up another 10% and TASR is down on positive news? Really stinks.
Anyway, couple questions:
1. To those of you who may be thinking of shorting DGLY, what is your opinion on when might be the time to do it? I've been thinking of it for a while, but each time just when I think it might be right, it makes a big move.
2. When might you add to your position in TASR? What might you look out for? There were a couple times I have wanted to do it, but this divergence in prices compared to DGLY makes me concerned something is up with DGLY and someone in the know is making moves.
I agree... I'm sick and tired of many of my stocks going up only because of earnings. I wish more companies would strategize the dissemination of good news. Keep the price rise slow but steady.
True, I think it would be stupid to sell all. If you've got a lot maybe a defensive move would be to sell some. But the sad fact is these moves in management #$%$ investors, especailly for a stock like TASR that has gone up so fast. People buying and selling on emotion and not fundamentals cause the biggest moves in my experience.
What does irritate me is how a company like DGLY can make such disproportionately large moves on good news compared to TASR. In my estimation, TASR is the more solid bet.
No I cannot agree. Any time there is a shakeup in structure like this, price moves. That's been shown in all the shares I've owned. People may recover their minds after a while but the initial reaction is always dramatic. This makes more sense than some two bit analyst downgrade.
I have made quite alot of money on TASR since the riots broke out, and regardless of whether the news boosts my position or not, I am #$%$ and I am hoping someone can try to explain it to me. Maybe it's a cultural/local thing and I can't understand it because I'm not from the US.
I can understand that Ferguson could be one word against another, hearsay, etc BS.
But how in the BLUE FAQ can ANYONE of SOUND mind watching the video of Eric Garner's murder come to ANY OTHER conclusion that indictment is justified? How the blue hell could anyone look at the video and not come to any conclusion other than a gross miscarriage of justice has occurred here? What kind of reasoning could go behind that decision knowing that in the wake of Ferguson, any injustice can only be asking for more of the same?
I have read through as many reports of the conclusion of the trial, and I still cannot understand it.
Please give me some intelligent answers why the decision might even remotely be justified, because this result has honestly affected me more badly than losing money on stupid trades this year.
I had to laugh at that. I was like, come ON guys, everyone knows your tricks by now! What losers! They've long since lost any credibility from people in the know. Still no harm selling some to take some profits if you have a lot of shares, but don't be dumping and letting these #$%$ clients start swallowing them up. What a transparent ploy! Waiting to buy on a pullback.
