Good article that brings to light a very blurred definition which is understandable. To me, tech is anything that has to do with computers - hardware and software and related electronic suppliers. This definition encompasses, MSFT, AAPL, INTC, CSCO, etc. I view cell phones and smart watches as computer that are also able to be used as a phone and to tell time with, respectively.
To complicated for me, it's time to let Sherlock lose on this one. He's really shown some fine expertise going after 1.09.
"I noticed it happens only if I try to post new message very similar to deleted."
Excellent point and correct you are, because when I do fix the minor typo I cannot post again, but can post an entirely different reply most of the time, but not all of the time.
The development of AHT offers investors the possibility of great gains, but you should also be aware of some of its inherent risks and dangers:
Less liquidity - There are far more buyers and sellers during regular hours. During AHT there may be less trading volume for your stock, and it may be harder to convert shares to cash.
Wide spreads – A lower volume in trading may result in a wide spread between bid and ask prices. Therefore, it may be hard for an individual to have his or her order executed at a favorable price.
Small fish – While individual investors now have the opportunity to trade in an after-hours market, the reality is that they must compete against large institutional investors that have access to more resources than the average individual investor.
Volatility – The AHT market is thinly traded in comparison to regular-hours trading. Therefore, you are more likely to experience severe price fluctuations in AHT than trading during regular hours.
What I have also found is that when I delete a post almost immediately after posting because of typos, it usually will not let me post for next couple of hours.
Yes, but let's say you wanted to delete this post I'm typing now, all you have to do is delete the sub thread post:
"I suspect that only poster that started a thread can delete it"
The thread would remain alive, but without this post and the sub thread post "I suspect that only poster that started a thread can delete it."
Sometimes when buying afterhours it's a blind buy or maybe the person put in a market order, I doubt it was a mistake on a limit order.
The sub thread with Think5x was deleted by Twit, because it was under that sub post that Think5x, Sewells and I were conversing, but not sure who is deleting posts now. Anyone can remove a thread by topic or remove post below the topic and all replies to that sub post are deleted with it.
It's a semi surprisingly good day for the market which is great to see. I noticed both INTC and KORS are up well, but not sure if you still own either. I'm thinking seriously about SKX as retail play during the holiday season.
"I think the guy is just wrong and Apple is going to 150."
I agree with the target provided that this correction doesn't last for the long term. For a couple of years now I thought cable companies would be in trouble, but change is taking longer that I thought it would have taken. In summary, AAPL should prove to be a good/great long term investment.
"Nitwits are on vacation. Maybe the US markets can get some momo & close the week stronger."
First they go on vacation and then the US goes on vacation, Labor Day. Summer will be officially over and what they classify as normal trading will resume Tuesday. Depending on what happens with Shanghai on Monday, could cause a chaotic Tuesday in the US, but hopefully not so.
Well said Msprings and glad to hear you made your buys at very profitable entry points. As far as I know they are launching the iPhone on September 9, along with other items and/or surprises. My concern with this round of the iPhone is lack of subsidies or discounts to buy it, since most carriers nixed the two year contract. With that said, I have seen some innovative financial incentives that some carriers are implementing to ensure sales of the phone.
Are you talking about people that purchased stocks on Margin by borrowing from their broker and now that the stock tanked the broker called the Margin in, meaning they'll have to pay up but cannot so they have to sell at a loss, similar how 1929 began? Not trying to cause panic, just trying to understand what you are saying.
I played FAS and FAZ big time after the market low in March '09, great ETFs, but one must exercise caution when trading, very short term plays, kind of like DUST and NUGT.
I'm now very curious about what occurred on the Canadian exchange with RMX, whether or not the short interest went up or down. They have not updated it yet.
Apple being one of the largest and best companies gets bad press as well as good press almost every day. I heard one analyst this morning on CNBC rave about it.
Interesting, RBY short interest is now up 11% from 3,021,000 to 3,359,300, perhaps that is reflection of the last news release or anticipating where the POG is going, or both. From the same source, shortsqueeze.
I would like to think that they treat them equally, but the only other thing I can think of is that there rating system system has slightly different rating labels and/or guideline. With that said, I do recall RMX with a greater percentage of short interest on the Canadian exchange than RBY on the US exchange.
