not likely with AAPL going up a couple hundred.....buy who knows, someone may get stupid and buy TSLA here.
you are 1 of a couple....
You may be correct....but sometimes it is what it is.....this is a game changer. Apple is trying at a discount when it comes to FPE.....how does this help that FPE? Multiple Expansion is in the works........whether it starts tomorrow? I don't know but I would say this...if you were short, would you cover tomorrow???? or wait???? I would cover b/c I would rather duck and cover and live rather than look around at the light show and say "what's all that". Have fun longs, B PS- I have a limit sell in at 715/sh....lol...it will be bought
I think it rockets higher myself....this isn't a small deal. This is a couple hundred million units perhaps over the next couple years. It's not like this is a high flier, it's got a 10.5 FPE. Stock goes up 50/sh minimum at the open in my opinion. GL to all, B
doogle- I hear you....why have your money in a company that is going nowhere? But the fact, as you clearly agree, is that NG is going to be a big deal at some point. The prices will go up.....who knows how high down the road (sadly I will only make my ancestors wealthy if I am correct). The way I look at it, it's cheap now so if I do have dollars that I can't find a home for (and I do keep cash as a position so I'm never all in the market) I will usually go to the companies that I think will be in the middle of the action years down the road....for me that means anything Nat Gas.....CLNE, UPL, GLNG, and a couple others that are less tied. I seldom trade these names, just add. There have been exceptions (aka CLNE at 24/sh) but the money quickly went back into the name. GL all, B
I think it is what it is at this point in their cycle. They had to renegotiate contracts at more competitive rates (negative) but what you are hugely missing is that the demand for the services they provide are going through the roof (very positive) and what I consider the most important point is that they are a leader in internet security which is the future rev. draw. As for projecting growth.........don't put to much credence into what they report and don't report. They may have wanted to temper the expectations because the stock was way overheated.....but of course that is speculation on my side. In any case, I sold a quarter of my shares on the way up at 47.5 and would love to get those shares back up 40. Good luck, B
To start I will say that I don't know what happened BUT I will tell you a sad story of a mistake that I made once that cost me some coin and did make a minor blip on that day's chart.....the same may have happened today to WFT.
So, I put in a limit BUY order for "I think it was AKAM" a couple years ago. At the time the stock was trading around 33.10ish, well to make a long story short, my limit buy was surposed to be 33 but I put in 34 and my brokerage bought me the stock at 34 (which #$%$ me off b/c they should have just bought at the market price to protect their client you would think) and sure enough, I saw the chart spike for a moment and come right back down. It wasn't till later that I saw what happened......the same could have occerred today only on the sell side b/c I have almost done that as well....live and learn and double check. FYI, the example isn't to the exact timeline and I'm not even positive it was AKAM.
Chang- Saying a gap 3% below the current trade is going to close doesn't make you some guru....it makes you a person who likes stating the obvious. Furthermore, for you to say that you want to be on the side lines when the market is extremely bullish??? It's absurd. While I would agree that it isn't the best time to be buying stocks....you absolutely have to be in collecting the gains. As you get gains, sure you can fade your positions and raise cash to buy on some pullbacks, but to say it is wise to be on the side lines is nuts!!! The market has been extremely bullish the better part of the last 2 years......hope you haven't been on the sidelines the whole time.
While I agree that the price is going up b/c of the great report and aggresive growth strategy, the idea that couples can (and this isn't all couples, there are restrictions) have a second child won't touch growth for at least 7-8 years and that's saying that a 7 year old is surfing the net....but if you're REALLY LONG, you got some grow down the road.
Pardon me but you need to actually read or listen to the earnings because to say they 'missed' is lunacy. You sound like a former long who is bitter that you sold to early. As for your competition.....it's normal. Name a company out there that doesn't have competition and actually turns profits. As for QIHU, good luck to you....be careful!!! That stock is priced fairly for 2018, but for me....I'm looking to invest in the coming few years. If I'm gonna speculate it is going to be on a company whose PE hasn't blown up yet (like DDD when I bought it last spring....sadly I did sell too early but WOW, I'm not a fan of triple digit PEs).
Well, from my readings I think it is more a matter of plenty of room for both to grow. The big difference between the 2 that is BIDU is at the infancy of an entirely new revenue stream. They have dominance over search and when you combine that with their push to monetize mobile which is coming to fruition....PE expansion. The beauty is that they are still spending in efforts to have their hands in on the 'next big thing' after mobile revenue is realized. Also, the PE/stock price has consolidated over the last couple of years. Yes, the stock just ran from 90 to 160 but when you step back and look at the bigger picture (longer term charts), you see plainly that the stock/company has been consolidating the tremendous growth it realized over the previous couple years. It is an exciting time to be a long in BIDU....for the first time in a while.
