I really feel guilty today.
I grieved with the rest of the world about those beautiful little ones who were cut down in Connecticut.
It was one of the most heart rendering things I ever encountered.
I then for the first time (I'm ashamed to admit) I thought about the pictures and films of little Foreign
children who I saw being incinerated by bombs and napalm during war.
At that time I really never thought about how they were real children with mothers and fathers who I'm sure grieved just as we grieve about our children today.
Life is nothing but a series of perceptions, and I hope from now on I hope I can perceive reality
for everyone in an equal manner.
When AAPl hit 505 intra day one month ago, there was very little talk of how it was the end of the
Now, one month later all of the news media is rife with news about the demise of AAPL.
THIS IS HOW BOTTOMS ARE MADE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LOOK FOR ONE FINAL PLUNGE ON THE MOST VOLUME OF THE YEAR, AND BUY AT THE CLOSE OF THAT DAY.
There was hardly the hoopla you heard today at the time,
What is different this time, is that it is being accompanied by news to make you think AAPL has seen its best days,
This is pure #$%$.
Down big most of the day tomorrow with mass panic, and then there will be a late afternoon turnaround that will make the sellers wish they never heard of the stock. IMO
Maybe if animals could buy computers and learn to use Face Book, 7 Billion participants may be doable.
Since there are 7 Billion people on earth as of 3/12/12, chickens alone could do it.
There are more chickens than people in the world. Don't believe me? Look it up.
There are literally hundreds of variables that create a stock price, the main one being psychology.
Do you forget the scores of stocks in the past that have never earned any money (or never had a chance in hell of doing so) go to the sky?
Face Book has a story that can bring about people who dream about making a killing by buying the stock.
This is why the stock will swing wildly in the future, with no fundamental reasons at all.
Sure, reality will some day reflect the stock price, but that is a long way off.
Didn't you notice how the vast majority of people predicted that the stock would get hit hard when the last lockup period expired? The opposite happened because apparently the large holders held, because they believe (wrongly or rightly) that the stock has a great future.
Even Mark Zuckerberg has publicly promised to not sell any of his shares for a year.
Don't you think he has dreams about becoming one of the wealthiest people in the world?
He is human like you and I, and I'm sure his stature in the financial world is very important to him.
I don't mean the amount of shares, I mean the price.
All I'm saying, is it possible that the price of the stock at this time, is already discounting the amount of shares coming to market?
It seems to me that all of the buying, that has met all of the selling, is telling me it is a distinct possibility.
ie. Trump bought his shares last week.
I doubt very much (with his army of accountants) he would have bought now, and not waited until November 14. If he is buying a huge amount of shares, it would have been a lot easier to buy on November 14, as the Volume will certainly hugely increase on that day.
They now have 2.17 Billion Shares outstanding.
On November 14, the Lockup release will contain 1.2 Billion Shares.
It seems that so far, the selling has recently been met by an equal amount of buying,and even though it seems impossible that FB could hold its price on November 14,could it be that the event is already being discounted?
I would appreciate any thoughts on this event.
Thanks in advance.
I can't take the lying, cheating, power grubbing, and obfuscation by both parties anymore!!!!
By nature, only people who have these "qualities" become politicians.
An honest, sincere, man/woman of integrity, would never stand a chance of winning because they wouldn't, or couldn't , sell their souls to the highest bidder.
For a full two weeks prior to the 1980 Presidential Election, Carter was substantially ahead of Regan in both the Popular and Electoral College votes. The margin was as high as 10% during that period
Then the Election came and Regan trounced Carter handily. No one could explain it..
If you want to save thousands of dollars, and or, make thousands of dollars, make the following two rules for yourself.
1.NEVER BUY A STOCK YOU WANT TO OWN ON THE OPEN ,IF PRECEDED BY GOOD NEWS, (ESPECIALLY IF IT ALREADY UP SHARPLY IN PRE-MARKET.)
2.AWAYS BUY A STOCK YOU WANT OWN ON THE OPEN, IF PRECEDED BY BAD NEWS, (ESPECIALLY IF IT DOWN SHARPLY IN PRE-MARKET.)
You have a 90% chance of being successful.
If you don't believe me, try a lot of "dummy" trades on paper and you'll see I'm right.
You are giving all the reasons that are known. They are now irrelevant.
Just remember the bottom of the 2008-9 market when everyone thought the world was ending
and there was every reason to sell and not buy. WHAT HAPPENED?
Look for large decreases in the stock price (like on Friday) accompanied by 3 times the average volume. (Friday did not have enough volume to signify a bottom but it will come.)
Also look for the large downside increase to be accompanied by the worst news of all, where all of the sellers finally can't take it anymore, and capitulate. THIS IS THE SAFEST TIME TO BUY..
Just like Obama says, "we have to spread the wealth."
Europe has been operating under that tenant for years. They have attempted to spread the wealth, but now there is no more wealth to be spread.
Notice that Greece has used this model the most, and Germany the least.
Now, all of Europe is looking for Germany to help them.
That is exactly what will happen to the U.S. if they take on the European model.
I pray to God that most of the U.S. citizens understand it.
Ron Paul is one of the people I had in mind when I said "no wonder the few honest politicians who run for any any office aren't event listened to."
How on earth can any citizen vote when every politician's information is based on a pack of lies?
How can any citizen vote based on the facts, when the facts are distorted by the media?
No wonder the few honest politicians who try to run for any office aren't even listened to, and eliminated
at the very beginning of each campaign season.
It doesn't matter what a stock has done in the past.
It is only the future that matters, and there is no way to predict the outcome.
You can only make guesses, and hope you have made the right choices.
