    ERF isn't discontinuing their dividends they discontinued dividend pay in the form of stock, they said it is creating to many extra shares and yes about all these stocks I flip LOL Now KOG is a great stock I like buying that one but still waiting for it to drop more, another one like KOG is EOG and I am waiting for that to drop more, hopefully I can get both by end of oct or nov.

  • I understand XOM pulling out as they were told to but now Blackrock and other investments firms that buy Russian companies are pulling out due to the corruption. The rich Russian are going to love Putin LOL and I own this stock and cant even sell it, looks like we are stuck with a stock that could drop to pennies since Putin wont stop.

    My stock picks for Monday morning

    Hello Brenda, Alcoa was a great buy if you bought in earily. Now the spread between upper and lower Bollinger Band is only 1.35. The reason behind Alcoa`s high jump this year is trucks have to meet the new government requirements, Ford truck beds are now made of aluminum and other companies here in U.S will have to follow. Truck buying season is over, they really start buying when tax returns come in. Call any Ford dealership and they will tell you their truck beds are now made of aluminum. Alcoa looks like a nice stock but has a lot of debt and was just diluted by 1.25 billion and with the end of the season of production it to risky for me. Its at the bottom of the Bollinger Band so it probably will pop tomorrow but I don't see you making much. Adding to CLF at 13.69 would be a better deal in my o[pinion. I also put a bid in for ERF at 18.11, dividends are paid monthly, these bids I put out doesn't mean all will hit. Here is the latest news on Alcoa,,,, Alcoa Inc. is feeling the impact of a credit downgrade into junk territory. The aluminum producer sold $1.25 billion of bonds on Wednesday, which paid interest of 5.125%. That’s 1.6 points higher than the average rates paid by companies only one notch higher, according to Barclays. The difference represents roughly $20 million more in annual interest payments on the debt.

    Hello Red, yes I keep long term stocks in my IRA and all of those pay dividends, I don't worry about the ups and downs in my IRA, most all of them are safe stocks. The 5% rule I haven't heard of but I do close to 5% I do my first stock buy in with 2% then double up once more if I have to. Next I invest up to 30% in oil and Natural Gas when the time is right. I buys stock based on peoples every day needs. A Portfolio changes based on the time of the year. Retail stocks are a buy now as investors know stores like Macy, Target, Kohls Best Buy begin their season for Christmas and those stock jump but I am ot much of a follower on retail stocks. Natural Gas gets another small pump then drops its biggest in November before the big take off, oil will be low and a buy as its use a lot for Christmas shoppers, Thanksgiving and Christmas then drops until May when you buy it agian before the summer driving season. I will invest up to 8 percent if I think I am getting a great deal. I mostly buy higher price stock. In the U.S the biggest buyers of stocks are your pension fund managers not institutions or hedge funds. Most all pension managers are not allowed to own a stock under 4 dollars and usually sell the stock if it breaks under 4 dollars, so I don't buy many stocks under 4 dollars. Higher end stocks that have dropped but still above 10 a share that pays dividend usually are highly watched stocks and the returns are better.

    DB 200 DMA is 47.90 and they usual go with that if the stock was beaten down, not 100% sure though, also DB and BPOP are trading high based on technical and could retrace before going higher, you might want to check the technical out especially on BPOP

    I agree with you, but Doral is in the banking business not waste water treatment business, I would think that's an issue for Puerto Rico government to fix and not a bank, but Puerto Rico operates differently LOL

  • fp718591 fp718591 22 hours ago Flag

    From my understanding in your post the court is telling Doral to fix the plant and operate the plant. Doral is in the banking business not waste treatment, did they expect Doral to have people to know how to run a waste treatment plant? Doral only needs to shut the plant down if their is no buyer.

    it was 99 a share on Friday dropping to 89, do you think the sellers were retail or institutions? also they bought back at 89 and drove it to 93, come Monday buyers will buy and the same institutions will sell again buying them at 85 then pumping it to 90, rinse and repeat

    Hello Maria I thought you already bought It Friday. Maria we are going to have to have an understanding and I don't mean this to be rude. I never tell a person to buy a stock, I only give my opinions. Anything can happen to a stock and buying a stock has to be based on your own decision. If we have that understanding I will give you my opinion based on research. First AT broke off the merger. A company that breaks off a merger that is in trouble must have a back up plan that they believe is going to work. First they dropped the dividend from 37 cents to 12 cents saving the company 31.5 million a year, next they plan on selling their renewable energy assets. Those renewable energy assets are windmills that are worth 1 billion. There are 3 major players that buy renewable energy like windmills which AT can sell, now it depends on how much they are planning on selling 25%,50%,or all the windmills. If they sell all of them the stock doubles but don't expect them to sell all of them. Now lets look at technical readings, Fast Stoch at 8, MFI at 23 and RSI at 14, with readings like that the maxium it could bottom is 2.15 with all readings at zero except the MFI, I hope this has helped and this is my opinion on the company as why I feel its a buy, good luck and have a great evening.

    he might be thinking employee stock holders are under lockup which would be few compared to the shares out, but I don't know if the employee`s are under the 6 month lockup period

    To get more thumbs down let me remind everyone of the greatest 2012 IPO it was FB, opened at 38 a share and 2 months later was at 18.06 and here is the best part FB didn't have to go through a 10 to 15 percent market correction were BABA will more then likely be going through a market correction that should happen within months

  • Since they own most of the shares they can short sell soon, look at all the IPO`s that came out the last 2 years, it gets pumped the first week then they started selling. The hype on this stock is no different then all the other IPO`s that came on. Even buyers on this board knows BABA is going up but they will sell at the first slow down in stock movement. I just look at this from history of IPO`s just as those who got in at 90 to 92 pumping this stock hard as they know they plan on dumping for a fast buck, then short sellers hit it, I plan on buying at a much lower price and I am sticking to my plan LOL
