Folks I am a regular trader. Use to trade on actual fundamentals of a company. I have about given up. My portfolio is solid and good to go on retirement but enjoy playing the market (long term has been good to me). My point is all these folks with 100 or 1000 shares of a company that YOU are convinced is a winner....just relax and spend quality time with the family because you will be right in the long run. If you believe in this stock...relax....if not (at all even a little) sell your position and find something you can spend more family time with. Just my opinion.
Wait until 11AM at least...you will get a better price. Anyway I am a stock trader...gettem right and gettem wrong....but this puppy will hit 115 tomorrow
Sorry but don't think so unless you unload in the first 1/2 hour. Just my opinion.
Bought in today at $208.....almost sold at $213 at 3:55 but decided to hold. So back to $206 in after hours ...I actually think this puppy will open green in the AM since the AH volume isn't enough to base an opinion on. The message I took is that the business model is pretty much on course. So...call me crazy...but my wife says the same everyday.....I can take it!
I am projecting $215 sometime tomorrow..
I have trained myself to buy on market emotion regardless of the business model. My best take ever was when Constellation Brands (STZ) dropped 35% in a day 2 years ago because their deal with Inbev was in jeopardy. Constellation = Corona. Bought the farm on that one as Corona sales ain't slowing down. Retired on that call!!! Had nothing to do with fundamentals or long term vision.
Tough call on that one. I own the stock and actually sold Feb 13 15 99 calls today when the stock was in the low 98's. My basis is 90 and change and I am successful each week selling (weekly) out of the money calls to pick up a decent return. Pick up a buck a week and reduce my basis. Don't know where its going...but unless we have a major drop/increase .... I will continue. Yes I am long on the stock!! Whole market scares the sh&* out of me!!! I use to invest on actual valuations/business model a long time ago.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Worst case earnings release is now reflected in the stock price. If earnings are below expectations...1-1/2% drop by 10 AM on Wed but by EOD will be back to these levels. If the earnings are at or above expectations at a minimum will retrace and recoup all of todays activity. Just my opinion. I am also long AAPL, GILD and PSX.
I can't see into the future and I can feel confident that 99.9% of the posters on this board can't as well. I won't tell you AAPL is going to 65 or 155 ...how the hell would I know that. But I can tell you and all investors....follow intuition on the buy and rarely look back. If you have the conviction on the buy....you are correct. You will be bucks ahead in the long run. I
Agreed. But as I sit here bored to tears my capital grows without all that #$%$. I 100% agree with you but just sitting idle in the long term (yet painful at times) has paid very well to me. I am not stupid to the point of no stop losses but doing nothing has been the best plan in comparison to my friends who seem to know the market better than I do. All I know is I am teeing it up at 7:54 tomorrow.
Question: I am 60 years old and have been a long term valuation based investor. Life has been very good to me and although I have had my ups and downs (and way downs) I am way to the plus side. I read all these Chicken Little posts about the sky is falling.....does anyone actually invest anymore or is this Vegas on steroids. Just a question.
Nope. Will open negative and Wall Street wants to hit that 1972 level in the S&P where everyone gives up and throws away their positions......but by end of day back above 2000 and moving higher. Just my opinion.
Got 500 shares at a cost basis of $98 and will buy more if it goes below that. Also own GILD and just added positions today in GOOG and JPM. I am sure prices will drop from where I bought but I am heading to the 1st tee box for a 7:54 tee time in the morning. You guys figure it out from here....but next year I will be teeing it up at 7:54 with a couple more bucks in my pocket.
This puppy my hit high $57 range at worst. Too much Macro Economics to let oil to continue its free fall from these levels. Worst case $40 - $42. Sit tight with COP and by end of 2015 you will be able to throw a nice Holiday party with your gains. Just relax people!!!
In todays volatile market ..AAPL will remain with conservative guidance and no need to increase dividend. Long term investors want stock appreciation and not looking for a 10 to 20% increase in dividend. Would prefer a 5 to 10% increase is stock price. Just relax and let the market settle down. All will be OK in 90 days.
1972 in the S&P may retrace to 1900 but market is going higher in 90-120 days. Wall St loves volatility and they have got what they asked for. Sit tight AAPL at 115 by June and that's a good return in todays market.
People with Smartphones at every intersection in the country. What flakes they are....
Ok.....Rough times but the goal for me is AAPL at 125 by December 2015. Personally think that ain't a problem or I would have sold out by now. Market doesn't go straight up. There are ups and downs but its about the long run. If I could have predicted the ups and downs I would be as rich as all the other posters on this board. I hope everyone has a meal tonight and a safe place to sleep. AAPL down a buck or even ten will not wreck my world.
