You may be correct but there are a lot of shorts in this stock. These are not the shorts that permit a short squeeze. Thinking they will need to cover first. Last week there was a lot of shares exchanging hands. Maybe it was a lot of shorts covering to clients selling. If that was the case we maybe could see a little bounce. Waiting to see that begin to happen before I buy. It could just be a consolidation for another move lower. We will see.
Do not see the heavy buying. Gap and trap's are more reflective of stocks moving lower. Again that could just be for covering purposes.
Hope it works out. Wall street is the problem for airlines at present as they move the market.
They are short this sector so until they cover I do not see much of a move up. Oil is low and I do not think that they will raise interest rates despite the rhetoric. The free money is what is keeping the market up. Wall street could be covering this sector right now for all I know. If that happens and they go long then that will be great. I am going to wait until it closes above 43 with volume before I buy and then use a stop loss. This market will not go up for ever and for now I am only trading. I think that the airlines should be trading higher from a fundamental standpoint but wall street does what ever makes them the most and the easiest. GLTY
They must have got their shares covered and went long.
They must have got enough shares covered to go long. Will have to see if this keeps going. Got 2000 shares of LUV also. Now need to discover what created the spike.
This is just plain manipulation by wall street. So LUV lowers estimates and the rest of the airlines now do not have anything to fear so they all go up! Right! Of course it is nice to be on the correct side but this is baloney and Wall Street is serving steak. Well you can be sure that they are getting a much bigger piece of the steak. Wall street positioned themselves with a bunch of longs. Now I see that Credit Suisse has a buy and a 49 price target by the end of the year. Will be interesting to see if this is a sucker punch or not.
Profits down 40% and bad things didn't happen? Delinquencies down to 8.4%! Yes this should make it go up 5 points. Wall street doesn't need good news.
Sold those at 38 as it appeared they were not going to let it go. Sellers continued to refresh on offer. Bought 1000 this morning for a trade not an investment at 37. 30. Stop at 37.18. DAL had some negative news this morning. Do think LUV in good shape but it will go with market.
In the back office the FED just called and told my boss money on the way. Buy! Buy! Buy this market. He did and I guess a lot of other financial institutions did. Not going to go on forever.
Call it what ever but LUV hit 37.19 but not 37.18. I sold at 38.00. Factory orders fell for the eight time in nine months and the market takes off again on this bad news. This can not continue to happen. Sooner or later, as I have no idea when, this market is going to tank. As a result I will only trade. No investments as I am not on the inside aware of how high wall street will take a stock that is making no money only to have the ignorant retail investor holding when they short it.
The board makes decisions that guarantee they receive their allotted funds and pay while the share holders take it on the chin. So I invest at 34 last July. So now the company want's to sell shares for less to reduce debt and use the funds for company business. Company business being to allot more options to themselves and pay their salaries that they are not earning. Forrest did share that you never know what you will get in a box of chocolates. What's another 6% loss in one day for share holders as long as I am looked after. Keep smiling.
Where is the huge miss. From what I read they beat and they raised guidance for 2016.
They missed on revenues by 5 million and beat on earnings. I bought at 18.00 anyways. These are great earnings in this environment. They did much better than last year at this time when the stock was 25. I think it goes higher. Granted if wall street is short I will be wrong. Fundamentally it should move up.
Bee happy! CHK does not look very happy. It actually looks down. If others would buy and let it know that it was wanted, it would bee happy. When it is not wanted it really get's down!
Means good news for the market. Reiterating here that there will be not interest rate rise this year. The FED will need to keep feeding the financial institutions in order to keep the market up. The goal is to keep the rich making more money. MY! MY! The same as yesterday. As a result of the bad news the market goes up higher.
They know the economy is weaker. The rate hike has just been rhetoric. Would agree that there will be no hike. They need to keep feeding the market.
Wall street is short this sector as they are some others. They are having to short more and more sectors to make their 100 million a day trading now with the market at all time highs when the fundamentals are so poor. Really do not see interest rates going up this year as the FED knows that the economy is still poor. They have been talking about raising the interest rates since the end of 2014. At this time it is just rhetoric. I noticed today that Forbes said D was oversold. If that plays out in the manner it usually does when Forbes says something is oversold, D is going lower. This stock and sector has been in a downtrend from the end of 2014. It continues to make lower lows and lower highs. Today was a lower low again. That means it has broke the previous support. Now we have another technical negative along with the pattern that I have noticed with Forbes. We will see how it plays out. In this market I am in cash and trading, not investing so my analogy may not seem sensible to yourself. Hope it is somewhat helpful. The market does what wall street decides so they could take it much higher and even turn D around later today. May in the end it work out well for you.
It looks more like last Thursday. Continued slow, consistent movement lower. Could make a new 52 week low. Hey wall street has been know to trip you up and maybe as we are so close to the 52 week low it bounces.
Increase in natural gas supplies. Economy is really in the tank. Transportation stocks getting beaten up. Nearly all of them pointing to slower growth. Result! Market will probably move back up as they are not ging to raise interest rates and will keep giving the trading institutions money to keep the market up.
