    Fourth-Quarter Highlights

    Sales were $933 million, up $31 million, or 3 percent, from the same period last year.
    Net income was $3 million, compared to $41 million in the same period last year. Net income from continuing operations was $29 million, compared to $40 million in the prior year.

    Total volume 71,000,0000 and it was traders buying and seeling 50 cents move. Tomorrow stock will open higher but then give up some of the gains, from over head supply.high volume is buying, but technical picture high volume dcline is bearish.

    Buying on dips sometimes can end up with more losses and investor' s should wait bere committing more losses.

    Tomorrow newspapers will give more coverage, CNBC and Fox busiess will try to give some coverage.

    Your buying and others listening to you will have negative impact on BABA stock.
    it is block traders who need bids, and this may take a while to determine if the trend has changed. Over confidence kills. Be careful for a few days, with your money. BABA reflects all the good news.

    Good luck!

    Good Long Term Hold Stock

    BABA is up from 99 to 119, and is up for six days in row. Most stocks do not go up 20% without profit taking.

    Nearly everyone is bullish on BABA and is in for long run.

    Well we will see soon if the trend can continue, or there is some excuse to drop to lower levels.

    Look at the option buying, sky is the limit.

    When everyone is bullish and making tons of money, market does what it has to make investors humble.

    This is the first time, in my life I am watching everyone glued to the outcome of sales. Once the sales final is known then what ……..?

    Good luck!

    Please see at the price at 5:00 am Chinese from China and Hong Kong will be active buy or sell BABA, based on news.

    The real trading at 9:30am and CNBC news will keep everyone guessing what next. Also check the Call option and puts with strike price 115-120.

    Please check price after hours last trade is 117.60…..volume 1,754,053

    Traders sell and buy after hours, by closing at 8:00pm they will cover their shorts.
    In China it is 8:00am, some folks in China know more than us about November 11, 2014.

    It is just a precaution for traders. If you are a investor and long-term then please ignore the message.

    BABA is a very good stock, but it has moved very fast up, and could have a reaction of 5%.

    Good luck!

    I sold all early today. and the stock is trading the same price. BABA is a very good stock, but on the graph it looks like a blow up top.

    Since it is still IPO related, first big up move to new high, we cannot be sure if it may still bounce back.. Shorts were nicely burned.

  • 1. Lot folks had Disney options of lower strike price and ended up buying.
    2. Now they have stop loss orders
    3. After earning lot of stocks go down 5% to 10%, the news is out.
    4. I owned ICON PLC ( ICLR) it had good earning and guidance.
    5. ICLR is down more than 5% and now after consolidation is trying to move higher
    6. Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS) traders make more than 250,000 bonuses why?
    7. Playing against the trend. When everyone expects up they dump millions shares.
    8. This results from buying to selling.
    9. Stop loss orders are hit and shorts are covered.
    10. Only place where higher the price higher the demand

    Disney will be a buy after it make a new high. I own some but will add at new high. I don’t think Disney is a turnaround at these levels. Stock should open lower from previous day trend and then slowly move up on high volume, especially block trading. That is not the case. Please wait for consolidation before stepping to buy.

    At present lot of mutual funds are window dressing to give shareholders long and short term gains. Also BABA is sucking money most of the investment funds.

    Good luck!

    Long time without split, Disney is a component of Dow Jones Industrial Average.

    Based on Disney stock performance, we could get a split or a major stock purchase in next six months.

    Long-term strong buy, short term stock could slide further based on ETF Indexes, or Dow Jones Average.

    Disney will Take few weeks of consolidation at lower price. We are tax selling and some investors my take profits in DIS to equalize losses in other stocks.

    November 10, 2014 pre-market will give us more clues the direction of Disney. I do not expect $91 on a movie alone. Disney has 1.72 Billion shares and movie alone has no impact.

    It will take 3 to 5 days before sellers position is absorbed. I took profits in BABA to pick DIS. I have both now but DIS is for till the end of this year. Selling is heavy and lot of folks with options and puts get their position squared. It is easy to buy calls and sell for profits. But sometimes with a drop put holders create a different situation. We will know near the close if DIS can hold here and move little higher.

    Good luck!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Option expires today and hedge funds are creating a slide, when everyone was bullish. DIS made a new high yesterday, and then some excuse was used to get the weak holders out.

    Today, drop of three points is hardly visible on long term graph.

    Near the close volume and price movement will give better clue if DIS was one day event.

    Good Luck!

    Traders donot make a bundle, but avoid big losses. After the earning, BABA went down and it took lot of will power to hold for another day. The stock moved straight line up with little consolidation, somit was time to lock my profits. I am watching PCLN and GOOGLE drop, so there is fear it could happened to BABA.

    I bought today and got out after hours. Tomorrow is another day, and as trader there are lot of stocks I sold and saw them move higher and higher. I have a lower price in mind before I take position. BABA is acting as if there is no way to stop the up move.

    Most of you are smarter and the market is moving higer, for BABA sky is the limit. That is the reason I got out after hours.

    Good luck and I wish you make bundle.
