A buy as you described would have taken this stock to $9 intraday looking at the technicals. The day's not over, but if this hangs around here and start dropping last hour, then it was a headfake.
I am always amazed by how naive people equate action on the options markets as some "guaranteed correlation" of price movement of the common stock.
No connection, pal. All those bets could go bust.
AKS does this every Friday...consider yourself lucky that you are watching the ticker.
I'd sell into it and buy back next week when we pullback to mid-$6.
maxactionjunkie, believe me when I say that I NEVER rate anyone, but you deserved a thumbs from me and got one. I did it because you are real. 99.9% of the people who post here are not real. Their thoughts defy logic, they talk to other idiots and try to give them credibility. Just take a deep breath and relax...and focus on your own goals. In here, you will get exclusive pumpers and exclusive bashers, and what makes them fake is their unwillingness to change direction. Just KNOW that. They pump when their intention is to sell higher. They spread fear when their intention is to buy lower. If you put your blinders on to their noise and strictly follow the discipline of buying low, selling high then you will never go wrong. Truth is, these idiots trade. They don't hold forever, they don't short forever, and they certainly don't care about you. They change directions as often as they can as long as the mantra of buy low, sell high is fulfilled. Stay true to that...ignore everything else.
jimmy, I've been in this game so long I can do this blindfolded. Those #$%$ have been trying to shake people like me out for a long time and every time they try, I stick it up their #$%$. They simply can't beat someone who is smarter than they are. Anyway, that's goldie for ya...just a bunch of privileged people who would be the first to die in a no-holds-barred fight. #$%$' pansies the lot of them. $15 is just the beginning. Hold this baby and be wealthy, man.
I've been close to 100% correct moving in and out of this stock, and that experience alone gives me confidence and authority to make my claim. As you know, the message boards are flooded with people saying one thing and doing the opposite, trying to screw other people. I am one who would like the little guy to go along for the ride. If AK Steel makes millionaires of just a few like you, then so be it. Can't force people to take easy money.
Ultralume STILL not in the news! From what I can see, a LOT of retail investors made great profits as they lock them in selling in and around $8. We took it up to $8.45 and saw a lot of selling. We took it down to mid-$7, and the selling continued. Curiously, very LITTLE buying on this pullback by retail investors. Surprising, little guy is happy.
And it's just like me to pour water on a fire. You see, the arsonists are the insiders...the hedge funds...the market makers. There is NO fire, but they got the little guy celebrating his profits here. Surely, they are all too eager now to take this up when they are out. But not that the great GEORGEJABBS has revealed this secret to the general public, is it wise for you retailers to buy back those shares that you sold?
That's on your coin. But do remember the word "great" when describing the guy called "GEORGEJABBS" when that happens. I not only own AK Steel...if you are reading this, just know that I own you. For several years now, it is I who has been moving this stock at will, and only the veterans have the unique opportunity to acknowledge that I am money. Publicly they ignore me, but privately they all suck my ____. Call me arrogant all you want. My ego IS huge, and that is because my bank account is too. Either get back on board (and quick) or get left behind in the dust. You have been notified.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
These message boards amount to a hill of beans really, but I post my thoughts anyway for a variety of reasons. But what I find very interesting is that here we have a stock that has more than doubled in just the last few months, and yet the activity on this board is quite minimal. Compared to other stock message boards where the stocks haven't moved but it seems the whole world is posting there, I hear nothing but crickets on the AKS board! LOL!! I am not complaining, I don't care if others join the party actually! It's enough that they few regulars here collect and enjoy the spoils! Nothing wrong with that! But it does make me wonder how many people in this world are missing out on making money if they failed to see this one, and its recent performance should have naturally attracted new message board participants. No, not the aliases, but real and new people. I don't know if anyone reading this can relate, but I'm sure that if you are reading this, you are one of the few that has struck a goldmine as I have...well in this case...a STEEL mine! It's a feeling of elitism to be one of the few longs and am happy to have been in the right place at the right time, if you know what I mean. Merry Christmas to all of you! Hope your 2014 is prosperous!
Hey vinodkhanna595, thought you didn't like me! Anyway, thanks for listing me as #1 on your bull list! I'm really honored, even if it is only one person who acknowledges what I posted here when this stock was trading at all-time lows. It's good to be owning AKS right now, huh? Good luck going forward!
I'm here now with my loved one! I am laughing my rear off as I take some free time here to post on yahoo message board! RLMAO! Anyway, I know goldie's peons are reading this, and I just felt a strong inclination to rub it in. Yeah, you're sitting at your desk trying to get retail investors to part with their money, and I'm doing what you dream about doing!! But hey, it's the holidays so I can spread cheer. It's beautiful here, great warm clean sands, sexy hardbodies, fun activities!
Anyway, AKS still at $6?? It's been there for nearing a month now. Those of you who are waiting for higher need to realize that you are sitting on a double. Why risk the chance that this will drop back to $5...maybe $4? Do as I did. Sell some. Use the money and explore the world. That's what money is for. Life is short, and you only have so much time to experience places. Let the Goldie peons work. You deserve a break!
