as it completes its drop and consolidation here (level still not know) it will be a great time to BUY. Some call for me to inform on that final BUY signal that I am waiting for but it ain't gonna happen and really there is no need for me to expose it. I will say when it hits and then you can judge from there if it is works or not. The next wave of growth in the economy will fall into Cliffs lap and it will benefit unless for some reason it can not survive which I don't see as in the cards. Casablanca is hammering Cliffs for not doing well when it is clear it is more the industry than the managers right here -- prices have collapsed - what would Casablanca have them do???? As I noted previously - buy indicators are starting to pile up for this stock so we are closer to at least a short-term move up BUT we need infrastructure talk and world recovery to take better hold for it to really get its wings. OR - we may see TAKEOVER talk rise and then BOOM the stock runs up. I will bet other companies right here are looking at the valuation just like I am..........stay tuned. Boolean
We are seeing a lot of reversal indicators setting up now -- more than last week. We have seen the inverted hammer and bullish engulfing pattern (but also the bearish engulfing on one day)........stochastics a reversal pattern indicator is also showing up a lot and is so right now. Some key resistance areas are now just a "smidgeon" away. Casablanca is in hot pursuit and pushing for change...........commodities have been killed but we see rising commodities in some sectors (coffee/agri) rising and beating the market. Value stocks have beat the S&P -- and is why I had moved into Vanguard value sectors as they had been under performers. NOW metals are still being punished BUT that too will end. You read every day how Cliffs is dead and can not return or metals are dead..........that signals more a bottom than anything and I find that to be Bullish. But alas.......my one last indicator that I am waiting for is not showing its BUY signal so I am waiting.....and so far it has been right no. I do believe we need to see that last BUY signal to feel some confidence here. There is still pressure here and will be until psychology changes -- once psychology changes from demise to net net positive it will really be time to BUY. Be pay-tient my friends as PAY-tience PAYS.

I am here to educate you - apple is out of gas - it will once again move into is stage of nerd tech..........not for the main stream.
sue sue - u sound like oily the pumper --- RED FLAGS all over the place. This management team is still the biggest concern - not ready for prime time as it were and not to be trusted. Boolean
you may not see the fat lady - but I can hear her singing..........the gig is up for this over inflated stock and company. Who really wants to be the nerd owing an I.......whatever. Save it and by Davita instead.
not to worry - they have to cover that and management should be able to stem the run in 1-2 quarters.......Boolean
by Neil George of Lifetime Income Report of Agora Financial -- just a note - have no idea how good he is. I remain long and will invest more as indicated.
The stock is out of favor and will need to really consolidate longer in order to rise with any zeal -- the gross margins are in contraction and could be for some time...........BUT...........I suspect management is overstating a bit so they can beat those contraction numbers and look better for it. Whole foods PE has dropped nicely now. They have good management and the concept is super -- people (like myself and many others I speak of) love the store - love the experience and NOW WILL LOVE SOME OF THE LOWER PRICES even more. So.......I am hopeful that foot traffic into those stores WILL INCREASE and the lower GM will prove to be less than expected. People may even BUY MORE with the lower prices again mitigating significant GM and expect they will find ways to lower costs as well - solid management trumps competition and uncertainty. I am looking to be a BUYER of this stock at this discounted price. I do not trust Wal-Mart to have truly organic and most who shop Wal-Mart will never be customer of Whole Foods and I believe those like Sprouts are inferior in quality. This is not a sea change just a wave and a little storm on the way to a better place........management trumps rough waters............always.............Boolean
jim - you sound a bit frustrated and - p.o'd...............insiders have done the right thing in buying and really two more need to buy add another 2-3k shares to lock this insider support down. I am waiting for the next Q report - the comparisons are pretty easy and the same as we move through the year. I am expecting to see some rising top a and bottom line numbers and I WILL BE ADDING MORE SHARES. The demand side is there and the company really is in the best shape it has been in. I have had trouble with management's handling of the company as well but this last down move was mostly due to reasons that are explainable and not directly tied to them. If they do not produce in these next two quarters - EACH QUARTER then I have another plan to push them.......you probably know what it is. You sound like a disgruntled employee or ex-employee or perhaps this is one of only a few stocks you hold and its slow rise frustrates you..........but demise is not in the cards so you are over stating the problem. I will buy more and you will watch and we can see who was right. You are too emotional to do the right thing but we find out if I was RIGHT or not insightful enough to see that you were right. Good day.......we shall stay tuned. Boolean
fight the tape - as I noted in my last post the rise yesterday would not prove to be the turn and the buy signal is not out yet.........so not to chase it......and that was the right call. Right now commodities are in deep crappola so you just don't fight it right here. Some one may come in to start buy out rumors and that would stop the slide but for now.........I remain weary and you do not want to throw good money into this YET......not yet and who knows........maybe never. We shall see. I am here as a friend not a pump nut who posts nonsense all day just to hear themselves keyboard. Boolean
in management - I mean come on kids read the annual - this company is HOT and the stock is in the tank yet insiders won't buy.........sure they will sell OPTIONS - free shares the big brother give away but they won't pony up and BUY ON THE OPEN MARKET. The stock languishes and you kids side with management just as you did with the disaster Bush and Cheney. Will you even learn. Obama may not be anything near perfect (being a politician pretty much negates that) but at least they are taking care of our troops unlike the Bush Admin that just........used them. You know I am right if you step back from your politics. Be independent like be so you can see the light.
firm all out BUY signal has not hit yet so I am suspect of this rise --- the pattern is getting very extended so I would think another down move soon will lock in the buy point............I am still suspect.
can have fun dreaming up imaginary answers that you just can not know but deem necessary to keep attempting to arrive at. The BIG PICTURE says this deal is awesome for shareholders.......and that includes RAY. This stock for me is a solid play and I will not sell it here. You may spend your time now micro-analyzing while the macro is all you really can be sure of. Good luck kids. I have a lot of plays out there so my time will be best taken with those as this stock is GOLDEN and I must repeat - RAY IS ONE OF US...........BE THERE. Boolean
BUY point I have been speaking of and waiting for .........again today close but no cigar so......I WILL BE PAY-TIENT AS PAY-TIENCE PAYS. And it has been right on as the price keeps dipping while the BUY signal stays neutral. I have built my cash position and ready to go in blazing when the buy signal hits.......I will say when I buy the day I do it.......that is what I always do as I have full confidence in my calls. Look at Earthstone energy before its run and now.......and us energy when i said no way and it fell when all the hypers were screaming BUY BUY BUY........Be careful my friends. Boolean
