Garce, if I were CEO I would have never let you retire. I wasn't there of course but I just have a gut feeling that you were a "company man" and gave a 110 %.
At least you were smart enough to get out, hopefully not today, and then jump back in after the free-fall. On the other hand, I still have my shares and looks like I may have to weather the storm before I re-coop the paper loses suffered in the last few weeks, which may be next year.
Be realistic. Wishful thinking, $200 next week. I think we all know that's not happening. When our President and Congress get their act together on "final" debt ceiling, then $200 plus.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Be patient. Don't know how long you have held so many shares, but if you have been long with IBM, then my guess is you have been handsomely rewarded.
Sure, there's always a bear lurking in the woods, but for now the bull is running the show, so enjoy and be happy. We still have a ways to go and my crystal ball tells me buy, buy, buy in 2013, especially Proven Companies like IBM.
Do you really think you actually sway someone into selling or buying for that matter, by posting? Such as, Is Buffet Selling, Traders Sell Now, IBM is overvalued here. Can't believe I waste precious time checking out the Board to find the same old #$%$. Have a nice day.
