People still don't understand the concept of a TRADE. Has to be a buy and a sale the diff. in demand (Bias) toward either side is what raises or lowers the bid where the stock will then TRAE (buy ,sell) .
If you've been around long enough you know that your statement has to be taken as Rhetorical! If you watched ISRG drop in premkt yesterday before any news came out and then on CNBC Greenburg blurbed about it and it went back up,that should tell you something. Having said that I still don't see how the cheerleading for this dog continues (see my past posts). ONe person said it will either be up x or down x WOW , I wonder if that person also plays black and red at the roulette table so as not to lose or win! The writing was ont he wall after the seeking Alpha article period. I too am stuck in this dog but my cost basis over the years is down to just about here anyway as I sold puts as well as calls along the way "O My Gosh he sold puts " how can he be negative! It's all about making money. Suggestion is at this point if your long sell the 17.50 or even 15 calls against your long posisiton and sell the 17.50 puts(spread) depending on where and if it rebounds pick up some prem and hope you get washed out between 15 and 17.50 take your tax loss and move on!All this is of course it trades at these level could still go to 14,13,12 Ooooh sacralige he said lower YEP!
There are two mall where I llive both and each one has Fran in them. I rarely see people in there. I have not stood there fort hours and days on end so thisis truly less than anecdotal, howevfer you have to at least see people in there and walking out with shopping bags. This is not cheerleading and until if and when numbers come out counter to whatever analysts say then Perception is the moving factor. The perception based on ydas mkt is down. If after earnings on the 13 ths or whenever they will move it too again, then it may just head further south. Hope and pray the nos are good but then again hope and prayer are the most riduculous paramters for investing . Even the charts are a better way to go!
well then too Nomura can be wrong. It's investing not cheerlieading I give a sh less about that either you make money with a stock or not !
well there you go, organic growth and a good economy to support that is what you want to wish for. Rising tide will lift all boats some more than others. That being said the stock price will take care of itself as well as the trading of it!
Firstly splits do nothing for value and or trading. It is not easier go go from 110-150 if you have 10 times the shrs out there. Ask berskhire hathawy shr holders if they agree with you !
Anyone who doesn't necessarily get the news ,trade in the AH mkt , ot autotrading where limits haven't been hit yet! What you've never seen a stock trade still lower after AH is finished and the open comes How about PCLN and CMG last year for example continued much lower the next morning af the AH trade.
not always sometimes you get gaped and whether the put or call side you get slammed . Nothing is a slam dunk you trade you take the risks but you come back again !
Not Fair Not Fair
You guys got some of the best dope and your'e not sharing it with the rest of us! Lawsuits Seeking Apha article. possible scam give me a break , It must be like 99.9% THC. WooWee!
further :If you are or have been around long enough to remember when stock traded in fractions 1/8- 1/16 (steenths as we used to say) than this trade is as normal as another! It is the equivalent of going from 18-3/8 to 18-1/4. Better to concern yourself with the damn lawsuits and the scam that might be bgrewing re their supply chain ! Witness mkt raging and about to rage more and we are stuck with this DOG! You may thumbs down this msg but remember you invest to make money not to become a cheerleader for a stock or it's company You can make money on either side and that's the name of the game! Better you should write mgmt and ask them #$%$ is going on as I havent read anything pulbic from the firm have you!
Maybe take a look at all the lawsuits piling up and think, Maybe we keep shorting it and make even more money. I mean really think about it ,whether the suits have merrit or not you have to defend yourself thus it costs you even more money and if margins are alreay squeezed! If the suits have merrit the stock goes down even further Think about that!
