Market-makers, still opening their presents and didn't trade much today. Santa Rally expected to continue on Monday at the open.
The SEC and our government should simply make it a law that corporate officers cannot buy or sell stock in their own company. There are other perks that can be given to people. It would be so simple for a member of the BOD to tell the CEO that we'll give you a raise if you buy shares of the co. near it's high each day and we'll give you a substantial raise.
Maybe, I've just got a devious mind, but I'm pretty sure some companies out there might have thought of doing this.
Thanks for the information. I suppose a cynic would say, if you do trade based on inside information, please disguise it well so the SEC won't actually have to do something about it.
at the bell is the official start of YHOO's Santa Clause rally....so load up and have a Merry Christmas.
But it wouldn't make sense if YHOO bought directly from MM, if that were to happen, what stops YHOO and MM from colluding and manipulating the market. I thought buybacks were open market transactions.
Is YHOO required to inform shareholder of the number of shares they buy back each quarter? If so, does anybody know which SEC filing I should be looking at?
People give MM a bad time because they think that she doesn't have a plan for YHOO. Sure she does, she's just not dumb enough to reveal her plan to the competition.
Look you are way to optimistic, face it if this scenario were to occur, YHOO would already be getting bids from FB and Microsoft. Basically, we're looking one or two years in the future. FB and Microsoft have people that are analyzing the market 10 years into the future. Right now, YHOO core is worth almost nothing according to some analysts, so FB and Microsoft should be making bids now. Don't tell me they don't know what a Reverse Morris Trust is. If we know, they know also.
Yeah there's still some problems with options. Only the large cap stocks have sufficient liquidity. Even YHOO has problems with liquidity at times, so you end up exiting a losing position, with not only a loss but also a heavy transaction cost to add to the pain.
Sounds quite a bit like options, but not as highly regulated. I tend towards the conservative side, so it will probably be quite a while before I try a CFD trade.
Look at the bright side, YHOO mb is the ultimate contrarian indicator. The more bashers, the more likely we're going up.
The problem is when you are planning your trade, you are missing an important part of your plan. From the time you enter the trade, you need to be clear of both how long you will hold the stock and what an acceptable price for exiting would be. Otherwise, if you are conservative like me, you will prematurely exit and end up kicking yourself when YHOO pops the next day.
Although, I like to buy dips, I prefer YHOO stock going straight up...lol.
....a Given Day. I'm not sure about the long-run, but in the short-run it works.
I just love these names, I only wished MOMO was MAMA instead and I would be in hog heaven.
