I see trouble in the Middle East (pick your own date, with a 99% probability of being right).
I see crude rising above 80 dollars a barrel some time within the life expectancy of a giant redwood.
I see RIG rising above 55 and you not shorting it this time.
I see obumma declaring the GOP obstructionist, the tea party racist and setting the presidential record for expensive vacationing and breaking his own record for presidential rounds of golf in a crisis within the life expectancy of a fern.
I see spots on a Dalmatian (a little alarming at first, but hey, those dogs do have spots, don't they?).
I see the fine print disclaimers on medicine bottles, book club memberships and product warrantees a lot less clearly than I used to.
No. I don't think it's important.
Or rather yeah, I still think so (umm, that it isn't important... particularly that is).
Not after two days trading anyway.
But hey, perfectly okay with me if you do, though.
Why, would you like it better if I did?
You are heap big broken record, chief.
Fact at this stage of living in that rut and with your lack of imagination, if you even tried to squeeze out an original thought you'd no doubt have to send your buckskin shorts to the dry cleaner.
If it's okay then you did a smart thing.
With no clear picture established and while the high probability the current rally in crude will fizzle still exists there's a distinct likelihood that a.) your shares won't be called away anyway, or b.) you'll get a chance to buy them back cheaper sometime down the road a piece if they are.
If that's what you wanna do.
I put in a limit order yesterday to sell the may 8 20 calls myself that wasn't filled based on that logic.
That order's still open, so we'll see.
Yeah. If the rally in crude continues perceptions will change, and that alone will drive the share price higher. For a while anyway. Till a higher range is established. Particularly as a consensus approaches that the worst is in fact over for crude, speculation upon which was the catalyst for this and the previously similar rally.
Me personally? I don't think there's anything at all magic about 19 either, merely because we bumped and retreated against it in one day's trading. If crude continues to rise and a higher range is established, 19 will fall away just as easily as 18 did yesterday.
And fill in the usual disclaimer.
That would be "soaring".
Only not really.
One can only imagine what superlatives you excitable types who seem to dominate this thread these days would use to describe Mickey Rooney's jump shot.
Hey, you need to calm down a little, son. I mean for any hope at all that that delicate nervous system of yours is gonna survive what's certainly in store here over the long haul.
However, between Chang, Chan, Wong, Wang and Lee, you've pretty much covered the waterfront Chinese surname wise.
Which probably explains why the number one crime in China is identity fraud.
Can you please be a little more precise?
I need to know if it'll be this weekend, cuz next weekend isn't good for me as I'm lookin to buy a quart of beer to drink this saturday night and the guy at the liquor store won't accept a down payment.
Or I could find out who peddles frenzied paranoia to the easily fraught left so that every otherwise benign issue can be so easily ginned up into a gay issue, or a feminist issue, or a race issue and buy stock in that.
More likely bummer will. Or one of his dissembling surrogates still in shape to do a proper tap dance without cringing with embarrassment after six years doing the same tired bojangles act that only the most hardcore (or brain adled) and easily gulled among the flock are still buyin' and willing to be seen in public without dark shades and false whiskers or a bag over their head.
On this issue, sis, yeah, the neocommies were most eager to welcome Walmart as an ally, just as any unprincipled warren of rats would when defending their particular dumpster, with the understanding that once this issue is resolved by imposing their will against the competition they'll go right back to the usual territorial back biting, tail twitching, and general displays of rodent-like aggression.
Which also answers the question as to why your peculiar party affiliation favors cheese as a redistributed largess offering to their constituents.
Of course so does bummer and the rest of that gang of assorted lefty authoritarian hypocrites... when it suits them, sis.
Case in point, Walmart recently sticking its oversized unbidden nose into the Indiana legislation.
Having transformed itself since the death of its founder into a bullying Chinese outlet store, its lack of values and principles fits right in with this current gang of neocommie miscreants.
I'm a conservative not a republican, you braying delusional lefty jack-ahrse.
A little, yeah.
But yours is probably the best tack to take.
There 'll be plenty of time as a clearer picture forms and to decide on a prudent strategy you can live with. I think.
Good luck as always.
Course you do, newman. As I you.
Soul C is here, so counting you now, that makes a verified three of us.
Only you can't go by me, as I don't check in often enough to keep proper tabs, since this board as it's currently constituted has devolved into something somewhat less than a total waste of time.
Course that's probably what the more serious types said about us when we were regular posters here.
Anyway, attracted by current circumstances, I figger somma the old crowd is bound to start straggling in.
Good to hear from you.
