i welcome your opinion that's what makes a market. I've been wrong before and I surely will be wrong again. Your opinion is just that, my opinion has no bearing on anything. Trying to guess where stocks are going can be pretty futile especially in this environment. Of course, you need a point of value to understand why you bought something, otherwise, you never have an idea of where or when to sell. And right now the market just looks dead and lifeless, maybe its the mood of the nation, even when you consider consumer cofidence hitting triple digits after its latest reading. i guess if i was sitting in biotech stocks I would look pretty smart, yet, what investor would be able to figure out what the value of the company they own or what the earning stream might be since they might never see positive earnings in their lifetime.
your always looking in the rearview mirror. If you want to talk about value traps AP and EEI have surely been that - and the chart tells me all i want to know about that. EEI has been a dog for so long - I'm sure you didn't even know that EEI once own a shrimp farm. Small cap value is out favor right now, hell, the market looks extremely tired and very narrow, which usually isn't a good sign, most of the action is in a few sectors being bid up to the stratosphere.
Someday maybe you'll get to where i am, but if thats your two positions your better off watching paint dry - and so your a kid tired of the mutual funds with no action - so you step your foot into the big tank - good luck to you. And funny thing is why are you here if you hate value traps. And you realy should understand value is out of favor right now - has nothing to do with my analysis on anything.
And guess what if you're a patient investor you build a position based on when the company goes on sale - but your looking for the perfect entry point, good luck with that strategy
Another tibit for you since you like to pick on PLPC, the stock is capable of earning 5 or 6 dollars a share, which means the stock price at the current levels is as cheap as you will find any stock - but, you'll have to wait until value comes in favor and then you'll see it sitting at 60 in a blink of a eye -
finally, i'm not sure why i waste my time on you because you just don't get it. And guess what no one takes the message boards seriousily - so you and I are wasting our time debating where a stock is going becuase it means absolutely nothing and nobody cares that you tell the few people that actually look at the board here that the stock is going to 8 - the fact is, you have no idea where its going - so your ranting about nothing and even if the stock goes to 8 it wouldn'tbe bacause you stumbled on the holy grail of investing.
small cap value has been out of favor for awhile, pretty frustrating, but the market will come back to it at some point.
And since we are on the topic of value traps.
There nice to own when the markets down 350 ppoints becuase the stocks have value compared to the #$%$ thats up based on nothing. oh yea, dividends don't matter either, right. It obvious you weren't around in 2000 when value was garbage - well all that garbage double and tripled in the following years while the garbage crashed and burned. but those are all lessons you will learn and if you are old than i think you are, then, you basically haven't learned anything.
catmister is a dreamer, offering nothing to anybody but himself. Someone ask him what he's invested in and you'll hear crickets. all he does is dump on stocks for his pure enjoyment. But hey, everybody needs a hobby.
They have set themselves up for a buyout. There basically a pure semiconductor company now whether that was for better earnings or that maybe their ripe for a takeover. The stock has been acting very stable and seems to be in an uptrend based on either good earnings coming or an actual takeover.
I think I'll start using you as a buy and sell indicator - when you say something should go lower I buy it and when you say buy something, i sell it.
Its all about quality and corning glass seems to be the least of any companies problems when trying to get their products to market. The last thing a company wants is a quality issue with their glass phone or tv screen.
Yea, the problem with that thinking everybody has been waiting for a correction for four years, and pretty much nobody is happy in this market unless you have been playing some overvalued social media stocks, or a couple of IPO's, or the real over inflated sector that gives the market a bad name - called biotech, otherwsie most of the other sectors have done very little, like industrials, transporation, financials, utilities, oil and gas, etc.
i would think todays market would surely batter GIFI, but what we find is that its moving the other way.How could a #$%$ company like GIFI be going up? Surely "great one" you have the answer.
GIFI has been out performing Apple. Now how long can that continue.of course, Apple is such a market darling while GIFI is just some company that actually builds things - Greece sure could use a few companies like this
Hey silly sally
Zacks too funny. i hope thats not what you base your buy and sell decisions. I'm sure your just being silly
you are forgeting that steve jobs isn't around - apple is just trying to pick low hanging fruit eventually the music stops
