Man Kaiser, I don't know. This is a pretty big gain for me as well. I have moved a lot of cash to the sidelines.
I guess I'm just not that comfortable at these levels. I am a little disappointed in myself, but there sure seems like a lot of excessive hype runinng into earnings.
Hey - you're layin' down that hip, urban chatta. We all be gettin PHAT and ballin' in the twofiddy range...
:) LOL Just teasing Grey! Careful. Someone might think you're enamored with marijuana!
Hope all is well. Hold for the gold. Define your long-term goals and protect your profits!
20k shares long
Yes, Amel, yes. And thank you for the advice. Believe me - you are not the first person to tell me that I think too much!!!! A blessing and a curse, this mind of mine, I tell ya!
The thing is - maybe I do think too much. But you can never say that I have made a move that wasn't at least well-reasoned.
Yes, yes, even that day where I got Faruquied.
$9.37 on Dec. 7, 2004...whaaaaaatttt??? LOL. Sirius was the first stock I ever made "real money" on. And it happened in my first two years of trading.
Since then? Wow, it was a long time til FCEL came along...
L O N G . . . I c a n s p e ak s l o w ly if you n e e e e e d me to!
God knows you'd never understand my Italian. LOL. Spanish??? Maybe a little.
Outstanding. No I was not joking. I attended last year and will this hyear as well. I think it behooves us to sit and discuss our strategies face to face. I do not have plans yet but will keep you advised on this board, etc. I know dantothill will be there as well, and I think ALL OF US who have been successful in FCEL ought to share a glass of wine together!
Has anyone ever done this? EG - I own 100k long - so I short 100k in addition.
Why would anyone do this?
Well, my answer would be that in a situation like FCEL (monster run over two weeks) people would like to lock in some profits, but they may also be concerned about a TOTAL breakout. Maybe they simply want to buy themselves some time.
I am NOT doing this, nor am I suggesting this,and truthfully, I don't even know if a person could short FCEL.
Anyways, I'm just pondering strategies and wondering if anyone else has thoughts on this type of transaction.
Long - I will meet you face to face in Hartford on March 25 and we will attend the meeting with a two-day hangover.
OMG. ROTFLMAO...Hey man. I've met Chip. He's a good looking man, and obviously a genius and visionary. Ahhh... gonna be a nice spring in Connecticut!
Chu train - Love you, man!!! Effing love you!!!! (Wolf of wall street???)
Nice shot!!!! $2.11!!!!
Very proud of you, son!!! LOL.
But silliness aside, I truly have appreciated your comments, your honesty and your willingness to be contrarian on this board. I currently have more cash on the sidelines than I do in shares, and that's a rarity for me. But that's OK. I'm gonna digest and re-invest, and yes...I'm eyeballing the marijuana industry! I made about $40k on Hemp's run from 7 to 34 a couple of weeks ago. It's back down to 12. That's 12 CENTS not dollars. Something for your consideration.
Max - remember you from the SIRI days!!!! Thank you. I definitely am holding some shares long term (not sure I've figured out the percentage yet) but in the last six months - I've held anywhere from 20,000 to 290,000 shares. And my DCA - including two years worth of profits - is probably around 40-50 cents. I truly have no idea. If FCEL went bankrupt tomorrow, I would still be ahead.
100,000 shares long
still swing-trading nickels, dimes and quarters in blocks of 2,500 to 20,000.
