I did get me some AP today, CREE announced a 100 watt LED replacement for under 20.00 at HD so it was up today.
I'll be looking to add to both AP and CREE given the chance.
I dont' trade then nearly like KLIC but I do trade them and write against CREE, AP is so tiny it doesn't have options. But gotta love that 4% dividend and with Mario Gabelli getting board seats after the old guy died I see that as good news for shareholders.
Have an order in between bid (17.76 and ask 17.85) for a while now.
I actually remembered to make it all or none this time!
Sold some KLIC my favorite trading stock) late session to buy more trading shares of AP and CREE but neither buy order filled.
I'll be watching though.
GREAT news for CREE and consumers at large.
I can hear screamer getting ready to panic...
Trying to sell some other stocks to raise some funds because I don't wanna go under 10% cash.
I'll likely buy from 18 every 30-40 cents as far as it goes doen.
Bought them back today a buck lower 19.35.
Wasn't a large trade and still came in 2 chunks.
Looking at a simple chart I'll set tight before adding more most likley.
One of the main reasons he gave for buying the railroad was Ethanol - make that CORN BASED ETHANOL (remember Iowa votes first!)
All the corn that gets carried in, the by products get carried out. And the Ethanol itself is too corrosive to ship by pipeline so it goes by rail or truck.
I caught part of Warren on CNBC today and I think he differed from the current president on Keystone.
I agree. Doesn't look like a time to be selling at all.
I still have 6 lots left. I traded lots (usually one at a time) for a gain of 7.41(plus dividends) on 5 easily found trades with AP since the beginning of 2013 in various accounts. These shares that just sold I booked 2.70 on in 6 months plus a divvy or two in this market.
"scale in, scale out, online commissions are cheap"
But yes, the future is looking much different for this company now.
I've been busy with other investments(not so much stocks) since the end of Jan really.
But I used to trade SMH's a while back. I assume they are ahead of themselves as well.
Sold some today at 20.35 that I had purchased on 8/27 for 17.65 and grabbed some dividend too.
I had actually forgotten about that sell order. But often I do this - palce immediate sells. I traded 6 lots of AP in 2013.
I still have 6 lots left now. With the new news about the BOD I'd have cancelled this sell order had I remembered about it.
But it is prudent to book a nice profit when you get the chance, and I do have shares left.
Good luck folks!
He'll likely be back with a different ID.
I've been preoccupied with offline investments. I even funded a new Fidelity account a month or so ago and haven't even logged into it.
I did receive some UTEK on the options expiry last week.
Just setting on my KLIC.
Watching my AP and IIVI move significantly. Mario Gabelli is adding folks to the very small AP. IIVI has been dead money for way too long, and I blame management who were terrific for years. They do have a buyback in place but I'd hope they wouldn't push the stock higher 3-4% in a day with a buyback so I'm not sure what's going on.
I see KLIC has a PR about an internal promotion today in wedge. I still view wedge as the weak link but haven't done DD on it lately.
Wow - something useful! Instead of some thing destructive. This way if one mistypes(as I've been known to do) I can delete it and clean it up.
It's almost amusing how they can't stop that constant SPAM for the one website but we can't post legitimate links even to Yahoo itself.
Yes it was. But I've seen some awful strange options bets payoff big with IIVI - usually more around ER rather than expiration though.
I can't believe they would potentially come in this hard with a buyback all in one day. I don't see any real news yet though.
You'd think the "crack" Yahoo team that stops posting of legitimate links could prohibit anything with that name in it from getting posted. Them they will change the name, and Yahoo can test for that name. You gotta believe it'd be easier to jsut track to IP addresses.
Makes me wish I had added more recently. The stock had been acting good the past few days...
