The market is about expectation, whether or not the movie did better than the next highest grossing movie for the whole year. Now yesterday the stock came back because "the market," whomever that is over reacted. The market is suppose to look forward, sometimes it doesn't and I believe in the end, MJ1 will do very well and "meet" expectations. If it doesn't "meet" expectations, eventhough it made alot of money, the stock will suffer. The oversea market to me is the big determination of the movie and when it is shown in China, we could get a surprise. The USA movie market should not be seen as the most important market and should be seen in it totality, but the market has certain expectations, whether it makes sense or not to us regular retail investors. The sense is, there is not sense and at the whim of the powerful investors.
Depends on your point of view. I did dollar cost averaging and it isn't so bad. Remember, this is an investment, but i know many of you don't see it that way nor do you want anyone to preach to that seldom used technique. You can play in and out, whatever your style is, but the long term (5yrs) to me is the way to play it and that where I will keep my core investment. Honestly, I would take some profit when it gets to 30, but will still keep my core holding.
Do you really need this to know the stock will go up higher, whether it is 123 or 143, it is going to get there in the next year, unless a major market problem?
Huh? I don't get your post, do you know anything about the market? Once you do, please do a better job posting and stop wasting our time bro.
And all this without China. It is good, but you know how the market is. The stock has come back nicely, someone today made alot of money.
Debt is no issue, if any issue is they have too much cash, eventhough they are buying there own shares back. They are so successful that they can't rid of the money. I think a special dividend would be nice - Thank you Apple shareholders type of thing, but what do I know. Apple stock is cheap - because it is 118 doesn't make it expensive. Too bad I only have a small position in it, I'm tied up in other stocks for now.
Can we put this issue away until Hillary declares that she will run for President? You know this issue will come up again until people tune it out, like I think they have already. Of course, the people who hate Hillary will care, but that won't change the outcome of the election to sway the people in the middle who vote.
Way too excited with Apple's stock price in January. I guess you can place your bets for that price in January, but I wouldn't - pure gambling then.
Why is it a scam? They actually have products that people want and see these products everyday, so do you, so how is it a scam? How is your post changing anyone's opinion?
I guess it is a better buy when the stock went down 5% on Friday and another 5% today (so far). Yeah, that's a better buy. As a Long I don't like it and being down for one year for me is not pleasant. I finally got in positive territory last week, but that's the way the cookie crumbles.
I understand about expectation of the market and what it wants. If it doesn't hit an expectation then the stock goes down, whatever the reason or no reason. So the stock will go down, that's the way it is.
It did better over seas, so that doesn't matter? So $275M is not good enough for a weekend worldwide? I know the Market perception is difficult to determine. It has not even shown in China yet ahat is a big new market, especially with the help of Alibaba.
Look at it this way, if MJ1 opens in China the beginning of next year, then those earnings go towards the 1st Q results. So we won't really know how well MJ1 will do in totality until next year.
Would you open a plant in India after the aggravation they had with the Indian Gov't? How about Vietnam or Alabama?
I'm more interested in how this movie will do, not the last movies, they are all ready in the books. Looking for 4th Q results not jast year's results.
