Your response has nothing what so ever to do with the substance of the poster's remark. It was particularly mean spirited as you know nothing of the poster as an individual. Suppose English was a second or third language. How many other langages can you correspond in? You'r probably like most of your countrymen and can barely get by in English.
I am convinced major investors and funds have disinformation departments who, among other activities influence such "analyst" activities in exchange for "favors". I have done very well buying on such dips.
Do you know the analogy of the drink and the lamp post? The most likely scenario would be for a stock to stay the same as now in 2 to 3 months. Given some knowledge of the market, you can beat the odds. Be the casino, not the mark. Sell puts and calls. Don't buy them'
Yes! But this is typical of the market. Despite the decline in revenues, I understand net profit was up. Ceo's statement re Japanese and European discounting troublesome but, given the weather and the stronger dollar, revenue decline should hae been expected.
Fewer units sold, lower expenses, higher profit margin. Motor cycles are a luxury item. If you want a Harley, you will not settle for a Suzuki even if it is cheaper. I can't believe the Harley is more expensive then a comparable BMW. With this said I think the electric cycle is a big mistake both from a marketing point and a safety point. I'm in, however for 200 shares.
What's funny really is you thinking readers and posters of this board influence PPS. Probably he cousin of a friend has insider information on earnings and has sold such to some hedge and mutual fund managers reslting in yesterdays 3% plus increase and today's pre-market run up.
You could probably get 0.50 for August 11's covered calls. If you lose the stock, you will make about 10%. This will also give you some maneuver room of 4 months to consider the picture and decide whether to buy the calls back or sell the stock. Think of this 10% as 30% annualized.
It has been about 3 months since the stock dropped from the $9 range to the $7 range. I think stock performance during this time speaks for it self about how the dividend policy change has affected stock holders.
Let me sell all readers of this my method for picking stocks by throwing a dart at the WSJ. If interested please respond with major credit card number, date of expiration, and security code.
If one were to sell whenever one had a profit and keep stocks where there was a loss, what would one's portfolio look like?
A stupid remark if I e ver saw one. Apple, Facebook, Netflix to name a few that come immediately to mind. It all depends on the stage of company development and the product line and market penetration. All serious investors should do their own DD with regard to such factors insteadf listening to some of the foolish dribble on these boards.
I find your view point interesting as we have very different investment objectives. I love PLOW for the dividend and the opportunity to sell covered calls at appropriate (I hope) times. You appear to be a trader with a time frame under 6 months. I bought and sold TTC with pennies in profit because I didn't like the prospects for income generation and I probably bought too soon. I think TTC will improve after Summer market doldrums and when lawn equipment sales appear in their quarterly statement.
