What is happening, could crapstock be correct? I bet you sold out at 40. You and the owners.
Ok, I don't short, but let's say someone has 10k shares short. Now he puts in another trade on a down day for 10K more short, this trade itself will help the stock go lower, and he may be hoping to influence more sellers join the crowd, and then late in the day he buys back for a profit. Now, if this is not possible, I understand, but it does sound feasible that he could help his existing short if he has enough trading power to move the stock, then buy back when he feels he has helped create a profitable trade. I don't trade short term, but I assume they have strategies, but you know everything so keep on telling us all your invaluable knowledge.
That's what stock " investing" is, "simple" you make it sound so hard and complicated. I invest for medium to long term, but have fun watching the traders. if you are a trader, post when we should buy, and then when we should sell in real time and your reason why it will go up or down and then if you are winning "trader" we'll believe you, so let's get started. I might try it if someone actually can show me consistent trades in real time. Otherwise I will take the Fundamental Analysis approach, hold as long as the story stays in place, like I said UA, QCOM and SBUX are good 5-10 and 20 examples, I am hoping OLED is one for the future, all indicators signal good potential with a nice low current valuation.
And by the way, I did answer your question on the topic stream where you asked the question, but explaining investing 101 to you is a waste of my time. Your gibberish only has a few tidbits worth reading. No wonder nobody wants to have an exchange with you anymore. Oh well, you can go on and on with your ranting and raving. Have fun.
You don't need past performance as an indicator. An IPO can hit or miss according to business expectations, they have no stock chart, only a really company performance history of business. Charting and TA is one segment of the investment community, but it's not needed, and it is only in your opinion to be the best indicator of future performance. Future performance of a stock can be more likely predicted by the improvement fundamentals, but again Fundamental Analasis is a different strategy to investing. I choose FA, and have held SBUX, UA, QCOM and a few others for 5-10 and 20 +years. Huge gains, SBUX is over 100 time it's easy nineties value, and if I sold any of them along the way, I would have issued out big time. Short term sellers, shorts , etc. didn't change my mind about long term performance.
Every seller is "short" If you are long and you sell, you have essentially taken a short position, since you now will no longer participate in any upside performance. So short options, short sellers, and skeptic long positions that are selling all put downward pressure on the stock, but this is a waste of my time, why did you ask me this question? This sounds like investing 101.
Only undervalued and oversold if future prospects are better, if the future is poor or expectations turn out to be incorrect, then all this gibberish you posted is meaningless, and we drop like a rock. I do believe oled undervalued, but it has nothing to do with past performance, only the future prospects of the business.
It seems high still, but they sure seemed to try to take it down last week, now we are pushing toward 31 again, and if we get another good earnings report, we should really rally as they cover. I wish I would have added again at 29. I wonder if we'll touch 29 again before earnings? I' sure the shorts will try hard to push it down there on a weak day.
Yes, very well today. Got to love it on a down day! Keeps my portfolio beating the markets! Do you have any other stocks you like as much as OLED. I like UA, but now I have held it for 5 years, it's way over priced, but still has potential. I want to buy more stocks before the break out like OLED seems to be positioned now.
Back up now, I'm not selling. I think we have a great long term play here. I'll hold for years to come.
After hours trading is so hard to figure out. I checked the nasdaq site and it had two trades at the same time 10.27 and 8.50. Yahoo shows 8.5 These numbers are skewed often so you can't put much merit on them, but it would be nice to know why they are so random, unless some idiot sold for 8.5 and then the buyer turned around and sold it for 10.27.
Nice, 28 after hours, maybe more tomorrow? I'm sure you closed your short long ago, but just wondering if your are still bearish.
Are you still short going in to earnings? I just bought calls this morning, I think we get a rally after hours, but you never know.
Maybe one or two more down days, maybe we can buy again under 30 before the earnings release. I think we get a nice rally after the release like last q. last quarter we were able to buy at 23-24 before earnings and then it rallied to 28-29. Here we go again? Buy at 29 -30 and rally to 35?
YOu don't hold any for the long term? What if it pops another point at the open? Don't you think you should have a long term core holding or are you only a short term trader.
Nothing to talk about. 9% dividend and continued growth. Easy high yield investment here. This is really a good stock to hold for the long haul, great overall returns, and real estate should be pretty steady in the long term. the crash is well behind us now.
