yes it is if you view it as long term, or at any given huge rainstorm. Will the drought ever end. YES , will sbs cease to exist no, will it right itself yes. will water supplies hold yes. With a solid company like this , it is only a matter of time as in every boom AND bust, What ya think san Paulo and its 11.3 million people are going to just die off and the government would allow this? After all folks the govt has a stake in this company already. THINK PEOPLE
No way anyone gets any pre ipo shares, but I have been buying yahoo for the last 2 months. It should do 20% of the baba ipo rise which probably equates to $5 a share guaranteed for the day trader. I am not a fan of yahoo however, but I will take what I can get by playing them. Longer term ther4 may be some interesting developments, but I think I will be in it for the short $, while maybe kepping a few share for the home run later
I made a mistake changed before they do it automatically jan 31st. #$%$ it all messed up with no way to get back to your old site. All your data is gone forever. This will be worse than the new coke. Yahoo is done for this reason alone. Please don't make the mistake and take a look at the new site or you will be done like I am. Now I have to find a new homepage after 15 years. Mrs Myers is a twit!!!!!!!
Meg whitman ruined ebay, lost the ca election, and will ruin whats left of HP, all the b while people think she is great. She lost the ca gov race because so many ebay sellers hated her policies and yet she ran on that platform. Stupid is as stupid does,. They are 5 years behind on this race. There is no way they can win by developing. They would have to buy, and that time is passed. Being a printing company a visionary should have spotted that 10 years ago. Then HP would be sitting on top. Once Bill and Dave died, it was over.
Yes you are dumb. It has already lost all that it went up from the announcement. If you bought in 2008, it was a good hold until recently. As interest rates move up this will go down. In the last 2 weeks alone you lost more than the .95 div. Over the long run it averages about 4% a year in good times, but soon as rates start moving it will loose half of it value, and you will be at par with your 13.08 buy in. You just don't get it.
you got nothing. The stock dropped by .72 today erasing all he money you think yo made with a year end div. In never ceases to amaze me that older folks think they are getting a div check every month, all the while they loose money on the stock. Every single older folk I talk to says the same thing, \My broker got me into a stock fund that pays me every month, but they just don,t get that at the end of the year they made nothing. Except in a falling interst rate scenario, this or any other income fun just makes no sense,
It will stop, its just a matter of when. You take $ off the table now you don't loose, you just give leave $ on the table. The other thing that could be done is to sell jan 33 calls, both expiring before earning and divergent. That's where the true risk comes in, but there will be cattle calls before then.
You should have been buying at 28 when all the cattle were running off the cliff. This includes a lot of you. playing follow the leader or the talking heads. You have a nice run and if you do not want to be part of the heard, then its time to take profit on this move. Its just another cattle call with the blind leading the blind. You have read my posts( last one the perfect strorm) and commented on them, and each time they have been dead right. I buy when people sell and sell when people buy. I am that cow that says no, not me not today. You will get another chance to buy it between now and earnings, and certainly I would not bet my $ on divergent save it ends up another enders game. Just let the street dictate what you do and take the opposite approach. It works EVERY time. Yes you will leave some $ on the table, but you will never loose money.
Nope you got it dead wrong. You are the cattle I speak of. Cf did not have good news, the price was built into the stock at 37. The heard will be talking about Divergent and earnings, and it WILL go up. Reguardless of the outcome of the earnings and the movie. Between now and Feb this stock will move. The talking heads will start chatting it up soon enough, and then it will be time to sell. It is time to buy now as witnessed just today.
Earnings and the hype of divergent will make this stock go back to its all time highs. It has taken a beating and if you do not follow the crowd and buy now you will be rewarded in early Feb. Earnings and Divergent itself may not be what one hoped for, BUT the market pays for what if, not what. No matter what catching fire did or does, it would not be good enough. Betting on the come of afore mentioned will make this stock rise again. Its 99% fact that this will happen and the only thing that could possibly derail it is a bad market in general. The cattle as I call them will start buying after they start talking about these two coming events, so buy now and you will be way ahead of the cattle, when they are buying it will be time to sell just as it was with catching fire.
But this time be careful buying, because the early cattle who sold off at 30.60 today were right, and of course I did. My 75 naked calls for dec 37 are great because its $ in my pocket from fools, but I do have 20 dec 29 puts, so I underestimated that it could go through 29, so now I have to be careful because I am protected down to 28.60. I may have to repurchase these at a loss, or take the shares at 28.60 and hope CF hangs on for 2 months like HG did.
That's your answer. That same idiot shorted it at 26 and then it went to 37. That was that fool Jon jajarian. I called him out on it by asking his firm what kind of stupidity he use for that suggestion. The answer was that the book sales on hunger games dropped at scolastic so he shorted both of them, or so he says. Duh for sure the book sales dropped 6 months after the movie was released. In any case it then ran to 37 , I sold most but not all of mine, then waited too long and only got 33. Now the same idiot is saying to buy it. You figure it out I already have.
yep I guess that,s about it. you throw a pass on 4th and 15 instead of trying for a field goal, but the odds are stacked in your favor if you SELL any option to open. Option buyers are gamblers and loose money 95% of the time, and that option $ goes right into the sellers pocket.
yes it has happens, but always at a price higher than I paid. Better yet uncovered calls at a price so high that it has no chance to get there will always get you a few pennies. Think about betting on 10 football games and getting all 10 right. Doesn't happen often, & when the bookie does have to pay chump change
