Just keep in mind that the stock is overbought based on the RSI and may consolidate for a bit.....when you expect it, it doesn't hurt, it makes sense. With that said, if it goes parabolic it may make for a good chance to sell a bit and buy back at lower levels. I will admit that I am not the best when it comes to selling rips and buying back....I miss more opportunities than I grab. GL, B
So I am going to give you quick ideas based on your question to do with what you'd like...the weather eating into profits short term, bummer but what can you do....the markets have waved the white flag to this winter, aka, who cares. Ukraine has zero to do with WFM so I personally am not worried about it with regard to WFM....if anything, perhaps there would be some crazy sell-off based on something over there that would create a buying opportunity. I don't see that situation putting to much of a dent into the progress of the global economies improvement. As for WFMs rev growth....they can easily open double the markets that they currently have and still not be close to saturating the market. The story here is that WFM does it better than everyone else, PERIOD! I have shopped at all of these stores b/c my children have food allergies and there is just no comparison......none. That is why I bought the stock a few years back. Also, people are figuring out that if you spend more on 'real' food you are healthier which actually saves you money in the long run, and short run. This is a no brainer, just pick your buys carefully because the market has been known to give nice opportunities on WFM for those who are patient. Full disclosure, I added about a month ago at 51.85. I was not disciplined enough to sell in the mid-60s despite literally telling my wife how crazy ahead of itself the stock was......call it my DDD hangover.....yep, I sold DDD about 40 points early lol. Hope this helps to some degree, B
I gotta admit, I'm a long and I was hoping for a down day today. I really wanted a chance to add on a test of the 52 week lows. With that said, an 8% pop says something about the investment already made.....and it's a complement fortunately. Congrats longs and hopefully there will be many more of these days to come. B
Perhaps just for a bounce or perhaps just because I can't believe all those insiders were buying in November and things are suddenly really this bad........I'm a glutten for punishment!!! GL all, B
I know some were disappointed when they woke up and saw the gains from last night evaporated (I was to a small degree). But the honest truth is.....there's no meaningful gaps to be filled. There is no reason for the stock not to go to higher levels on a technical basis. I like that because I don't see how folks could be jumping on the 'short side' hand over fist either. Will people short it....sure, it's a market. But I just can't see how 'smart money' would back up the truck on the short side here. GL all, B
Well thanks for not ripping me up. I guess I must have multiple IDs as well, not, I just don't care enough nor am I ignorant enough to think that anything written on these boards effects the trading price what-so-ever. I personally think that it's sad that the individual investor can't go to a board and ask questions/share ideas without being flooded by the same people who seemingly find fulfillment in posting every 5 minutes it seems. As for you Bruno? How many IDs do you have?
Geez, Zacks gives the stock an upgrade and the stock promptly sheds 10% over a trading span of about 10 hours.....awesome! In the end though, who cares!!! UPL goes higher long term and if this sell-off continues, provided it continues to be based on nothing new.....I'll add. GL all, B
Selling for a chance at a 5-7% better entry seems like too much of a risk for me when I see that a takeout of the highs would likely yeild an additional 10-15% extention of them....but I am not the most active trader. I would be fine seeming the stock go down to 150/sh provided the story is still the same knowing that I could have sold and rebought but didn't. I could live with that.....what I would get POed about would be missing the upside (like I think we are going to see). If I'm wrong about the news we get, well, it wouldn't be the first time or the last. LOL.....GL with your decision, B
Hairybozo....I agree with you that if the earning are not to the pleasing of investors that 150/sh is the likely support level that will get tested again. But I gotta say, I think it is more likely that the highs are going to be extended by 10-15% after the ER.
No....I just watched it go down and test some key resistance levels and it, as did the markets, tested with flying colors. I think the move it to the upside on earnings and if it does go down, well, we know the downside risk because it just got tested. The story here is solid over the next few years....I can't see any scenario where I am able to buy shares in the 120s or 130s.....I would love to but it just isn't happening (I don't think). But what could easily happen is, the high getting taken out and then extended higher by 10-15%. That would equate to 200+/sh. So to answer the question.....I'm hanging onto my shares with the strong likelihood that I will kicking myself again for not buying more. GL, B
Here's the thing with NG prices....the futures for each and every month for the next year are GREEN. I hold positions in NG as a hedge for this position and b/c like any commodity, when it is 'stupid' cheap....BUY for the long haul. Blaming the cold winter is for sure a good reason but what if next winter is nasty as well....then what? I'm just saying the bigger the gap b/w NG and Diesel the more likely a turnover will happen while we all actually own shares.....and this NG thing could hold up progress for 'well at least the next year'. I know some of you are calling for a double in the next year but I think that is very, very unlikely....though it would be fantastic. The only thing that would give me hope that it could happen is the fact that the last time CLNE went this low it rebounded to 24.75, which was fun. The rebound also began about this time of year if memory serves me correctly. GL all, B
As a long, I have to admit I am concerned.
But with all that said.....after a few years of holding PNRA, I am out. That means that the stock should move up nicely for the next couple weeks...lol. GL longs, B
Here's the thing with the dividend, whether people here want to admit it or not, they 'tend' to attract a particular type of investor. That is the reason I bought ERF at this time last year, well that and the fact that the company was undervalued and the pps would correct itself provided the company stayed the course. A year later the pps has increased and the company has stayed the course. The question I have, and have had for quite some time is this....Is the company going to try to get the quick pps growth that is volatile or the slower pps growth with added dividends which is less volatile??? Folks have bashed me for posing this question b/c the pps growth has been so great over the last year.....so I have quieted myself, but now that the most of the 'easy' money has been made (I think we go to 23/sh without much resistance over the next few months), I pose the question again.
I hope we start to see small incremental divy boosts that reflect the added eps and pps.
I've been long in PNRA for years (you can look through the achieves if you wish) and the story in PNRA is the same today as it was 3-4 years ago...the mindset regarding health is changing in the US and around the world. Look at MCD, 95B CAP and the business is facing headwinds as the model needs to change but they are having a tough time doing so because it isn't CHEAP to change to the healthy. I agree, it is much cheaper to buy at MCD or make my own lunch....but more and more the choice is between a $5 lunch that I feel guilty about eating (albeit very tasty) at MCD or one that is a bit more pricy at PNRA or CMG or something similar. Personally, I don't see CMG or PNRA ever reaching a CAP remotely to that of MCD but I do see the two of them taking MCD CAP down by another 20 B or so. I think CMG grows its CAP some more and PNRA does the same...to what extend??? PNRA to about 9-10 B and CMG....who knows.
For what it's worth, I tend to agree with some of you that Cramer's individual stock picks are so-so. When you give that many opinions that is about the best it could be. Heck, I study my investments A LOT and I pick losers, even after studying up. The one thing that I do have to credit Cramer with, and you all can say what you want, the guy has a fantastic pulse on the overall market direction, both good and bad. He has made great call after great call about the overall market. I watch the first segment on his show about once every week or two to see how he is feeling in general about the markets. Especially if I am feeling mixed myself. GL, B
