    World Population is about 7 Billion and Latin America is about 650 million. In California migrant farm workers, to Delaware poultry workers, an average American has no clue about the life of this working class.

    We only see one side of the picture, cheap labor and illegal immigrants. We all need value meal form McDonalds, one dollar for chicken sandwich. No one ever thinks about $8 an hour working in Perdue Chicken plant.

    They also have an American dream. This movie will depict working conditions which will make it a classic in foreign countries

    Besides movie revenue, this Disney movie will give hope to our nation’s new immigrants.

  • British Common Wealth Nations major supports game is Cricket. That can become a good source of revenue. Last week more than one billion people watched India defeat Pakistan.

    In Great Britain we often see people watching soccer in a pub, but now it is cricket fever.
    It will take time to evaluate this news contribution to Disney revenue.

    You can see the highlights on YouTube

    ESPN, the sports arm of The Walt Disney Co. (DIS), is presenting the ICC Cricket World
    ESPN is charging $99.99 for a package deal.

    According to U.S. Census Bureau population estimates as of July 1, 2013, there are roughly 54 million Hispanics living in the United States, representing approximately 17% of the U.S. total population, making people of Hispanic origin the nation's largest ethnic or race minority.

    This is another Feather in the Disney's Cap.

    Good luck!

  • It is normal correction from over bough conditions; market needs an excuse to sell off, after big move in one direction.

    This can last a few days or few weeks. So far the uptrend is intact.

    Smart investors should use these pause to accumulate, ICLR is a future market leader at bargain levels at these prices.

    Next year you will be surprise, why no one had a clue why stock was moving without news.

    Good luck!

    It says nothing, this normal for big players to protect their profits from unexpected news from Europe. This type of option and put activity is in all stocks, which are part DJ average and are part of index.

    Before the Disney earning and big move Disney had similar conditions.

    After a big run up it is normal even for Disney to correct part of the big move, today option expiration creates even more volatility.

    By next week this will be forgotten.

    Market leaders are still strong and Disney will move higher after Greece and banking are resolved

    Good luck!

  • It is up 7 days in row and I am getting dizzy watching it.

    Stock trading activity makes it a strong new leader for this next up move in the market.

    There is very little overhead supply at new high. Consolidation phase is over and this is a good opportunity to add to your portfolio.

    There are SEVEN PILLARS OF STOCK MARKET PRACTICE necessary for success.
    1. Determine whether the market is in a "bear" or "bull" trend.
    Then determine further whether it is a major, intermediate, or minor trend.
    TRADE WITH THE TREND!

    2. Determine which groups of stocks are the strongest.
    TRADE IN STRONG GROUPS FOR ADVANCE! TRADE IN WEAK GROUPS FOR DECLINE!

    3. Select the strongest stocks in these particular groups.
    TRADE IN STRONG STOCKS FOR ADVANCE! TRADE IN WEAK STOCKS FOR DECLINE!

    4. BUY ONLY ON REACTIONS-not on advances!
    SELL AND SHORT ONLY ON ADVANCES-not on declines!

    5. Place a mental or (if you do not watch the tape) actual stop-loss order of two or three points on your trades.
    BE AT ALL TIMES PROTECTED AGAINST POSSIBLE LOSSES!
    CLOSE OUT WHEN TRADE GOES AGAINST YOU.

    6. Protect your profits by stop-loss orders. Let your profits grow when you see your stocks advancing.
    HOLD OUT FOR LARGER PROFITS!

    7. Do not hesitate to take your profits; you may be able to re-buy the same stock at lower prices.
    SELL WHEN YOU THINK THE MARKET IS DUE FOR A REACTION!
    SELL AT THE TOP * * * NOT AT THE BOTTOM
    BUY AT THE BOTTOM NOT AT THE TOP

    ICLR Stock rallied on HIGH VOLUME and will most likely consolidate at low volume in a trading range above these prices.

    Is it guesswork, or you have some fundamental or technicals to come to this conclusion. Chinese are enjoying their holiday, we can expect foreign traders to return by Monday, Feb 23, 2015.

    We are experiencing very cold weather in the North East, and tomorrow forecast is the same.
    President should give more money to African Countries, maybe we can get some hot air.

    Good luck!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • We are getting closer to consolidation. There is very low volume, a sign of accumulation. There are not many big block activities. Most of the North East is still stuck with big snow. Flights are cancelled and not all airports are at full capacity.

    Greece news and oil is over played.

    Let us see if Disney volume picks up near close. It is only striking distance from New High of 104.45

    Today’s high is 104.08….I think Disney will move higher than, and make 104 call option writers to think twice.

    Good luck!

  • Switzerland: Swiss Market…. 8887.50….up….. 86.79

    Time 10:48am…market open

    This will impact ABB and should push higher.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • There is not much volume on the sell side so far, ICLR will make up 7 days up days, if ICLR closes up today. There is no news but the volume is low so far.

    By closing ICLR volume should be more than 400,000 to give price and volume momentum conformation.

    Good luck!

    What about these in next 30 years.

    These companies will sell if Disney moves 10% from here.

    Top Institutional Holders……………………………………………...December 31, 2014
    Holder Shares % Out Value* Reported
    Vanguard Group, Inc. (The)……………… 82,460,044………… 7,766,911,544
    State Street Corporation………………….. 71,038,073…………….6,691,076,095

    Good luck!

    Try to grow up, past can’t be used to predict future in the stock market.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Someone has a comment about Disney below $100.

    Try to give a reason why?

    Call Option activity of $100…..$101…$102…$103 expiring tomorrow February, 20, 2015, says you will be wrong.

    Try another guess.

    Good luck!

    Sincerely,

    Carolyn Novice

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Chart says it may need a small correction. Fundamental and Technicals still confirm the up trend intact.

    ICLR has a nice base building for more than three months, and will in the buying range even if we get 2 to 2.5% corrections. There are always early birds waiting to lock in profits after a nice run up.

    ICLR is a leading stock in the medical group and made news high yesterday and trends do not change in days or weeks.

    Institutional investors and insider own more than 95%, so we can expect high volatility for stock which has less about 60 million shares outstanding.

    Good luck!

    Sincerely,

    Carolyn Novice

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • It looks like computer related buy and sell orders. ICLR has daily volatility more than one point.

    Bid / Size…... 60.21 ….100…..low bids…..we need few above ….500
    Ask / Size….. 60.29 …. 200
    Day High……………………. 60.46
    Day Low…………………………… 59.765
    52 Week High 2/17/2015 ……………………………..60.49 watch this and volume

    Volume now is…117,126…12:21pm…very low.

    Low Volatility is normally, buy and sell order even, no big players.

    When this will end soon, buy or selling will come after upper or lower range is broken.

    Good luck!

  • This message board is dead as graveyard, time to stop fighting and have truce.

    One or two investors, with lot new ID created, with same message, when split, ESPN and movies.

    Let us have something new, not what is known.

    After a big run up the traders will come back once Disney starts sideways consolidation.

    We need $60.50…$60.75 for confirmation

    Volume at 9:53am 5,750…..very low

    So far today very low volume, trades of less than 50 shares, no big investors. They should come soon.

    Biotech Drug Trials Firm Icon Tests New Buy Point
    BY MATTHEW GALGANI, INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY
    01/23/2015 06:34 PM ET

    Medical stocks have done well recently and Icon (NASDAQ:ICLR) may ride that wave to a new breakout.
    The Ireland-based firm provides clinical research services to pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device companies, helping them bring their products to market faster and at lower cost.
    Earnings jumped last quarter from 49% to 76%. While sales growth has been slower, it has edged higher in each of the last two quarters, coming in at 14% in Q3. The company is expected to report fourth-quarter numbers in mid-February.
    Icon's 13% return on equity is below the 17% minimum you prefer, but overall it earns a respectable 94 Composite Rating. Its B+ Accumulation/Distribution Rating and 1.4 Up/Down Volume Ratio point to institutional demand for the stock.

    Chart Analysis
    Icon's share price has more than doubled since coming out of a 58-week-long cup-with-handle in July 2012. It was generally a steady ride for most of that run, with tight trading and good support along the 10-week line.

    Things got bumpier last March, but there was a silver lining. It undercut the low in the prior pattern, resetting the base count.

    Icon broke out of that new first-stage pattern in August and again moved higher in an orderly fashion until late October, when it began forming its current, second-stage consolidation.

    There have been signs of institutional accumulation in the right side of the base and the stock reclaimed its 10-week moving average earlier this month.
    The buy point is 59.91. See if Icon can punch through that price on volume at least 40%-50% higher than normal.

    Sincerely,

    Carolyn Novice
