Thermo next yr PE is at 20 and will be making 3 bil+ EBITA.
I am not sure about your financial status, but 3% interest is like you spending $3 more a year on interest payment.
Buy all you can on Thermo shares if you have extra money - this thing will trade at 200+ next year.
Looks like shyronnieTHEidiot has trauma. He had exact same situation on early days and he couldn't get over it. Poor guy. But usually this kind of case, the guy start enjoying himself by exposing his failure to other in different way so that he think he get some sort of relief by others sorrow expression towards him. Let it be. Anyhow, shyronnie123idiot is still i d i o t. as they said you can't fix s t u p i d.
That's (Stop loss) not what you call Hedge! You are an I d i o t!!!
To hedge your long position, you should've purchased "100 Feb 12 $25 Put contract" You could've got it at $2.00 per contract come out to be around $20,000.00. Tomorrow, if it opens at $15, you may sell it for total $110,000 or profit of $90,000.00. Now, you lost over $100,000 on your SCTY total equity, so your total loss would be at $10,000, not $100,000. My advice, don't trade. You are an i d i o t.
$120 is gift! TMO just purchased Affimetrix AFFX - once high flying and great genetic technology company at $1.3 or $13 share. AFFX alone market cap was over$15 billion one time.
