    OT/SDRL? seriously?

    by jkprice Apr 17, 2014 12:05 PM jkprice 17 hours ago Flag

    O.K., My RAX hasn't done well either. At least from the standpoint of making a move up. In under 33. But, I'm willing to guess RAX hits 40 before SDRL.

    I've kept quiet about this till now. Some here have been pounding the table since 45 that this is a winner. Drop to 40--still a winner? Maybe. Drop to 35, still a winner? Maybe not. Drop to 30? Not a winner.

    Looking to reload on this. Will probably buy at 41 . Depends of course on how fast it gets there. This whole 'punish the rich guy' thing is not condusive to the economy. Rents for a 600 sq ft one bedroom apartment in San Jose Ca. are over 1600 a month. And that's a 25 year old building. Overall rents are up 10% yr over yr here. New housing is about half of normal nationally. Equal pay? I'd be more worried about just 'pay'. Immigration? A record 1.83 million deported under Obama? Just means we have just that many more trying to get in illegally, doesn't it? Racisim? Why is it then the Tea Party types have no concern for black Supreme Court justices but a black President? Doesn't jive. This stock market isn't going to drive up until REAL changes are made to ( not change, ) but even restore our country to what it was. This message was approved by me JKPrice. No part of this message can be reproduced or replayed without the expressed approval of JKPrice. LOL

    Kee, my worry would be about when the present administration is gone. Then the war on coal will end. Railroads are making a ton of money on Bakken oil and Canadian shale. And while that is carrying the bottom line for them for now, coal appears to me to be a sleeping giant of income awaiting revival. And the money the rails are making on oil today WILL be used to bring coal back online with rail lobbyists.

    Friday timing of articles/rumors

    by bdrn99 Apr 13, 2014 2:42 PM jkprice Apr 15, 2014 11:18 AM Flag

    O.K., try and look at this in a perspective. We're all familier with Sears, right? Sears will go out and sell carpet or some other service via a person who sells it exclusively. Sears doesn't do anything but hawk the product or service. While you can go to Sears because you feel 'safe' dealing with a big name store for a service, it really is a waste of your money. Sears is selling their name. That's it. And, you're really only paying extra for the Sears name. And if by some miricle you find it cheaper to go through Sears, it's only because Sears is pulling a 'Groupon' on the company or person who actually provides the product or service. So, now we're seeing AMZN and GOOG selling cloud space. Do you really feel better going through AMZN for a service they really only sell as a side job? We all have seen where Sears ended up. And doesn't the likes of AMZN and GOOG remind you just a little of them in a way? Companies like AMZN and GOOG are raping the landscape. While we should be racing to new better paying jobs, these two companies are racing us to new lousier paying jobs. Ya, I know, on the surface it appears as though they are providing you with better prices. And, in many cases they are. But, with those better prices comes lower wages. Or fewer overall jobs.

    VXX went over my 44 mark and I sold it . Now if the dynamics are still in place, this coming week should see a rise in most stocks. Not that it'll last (never does), but this coming week should make for some profit making. Picked up some PDH and am looking for a 12.70 or so price to sell. I like SFL these days once it goes to 16.50. And I think EBIX could turn a real nice profit in the coming couple weeks.

    The first couple days of a downturn are usually the worst. At least on a day to day look. I'd expect Monday to sell off at first and then recover with an up day. If not..............might be some real trouble ahead.

    Kee, Putting people on iggy simply because they don't agree with your established thought is hardly helpful to yourself. Sorry that you feel that way. Just say'n.

    Mark, never played it. But the beef price story has been out there for at least 6 months. I remember hearing about the beef prices going up before X-mas. At that time I believe it had to do with grain prices. Plus, look at all the countries that don't want the beef due to GMO grain.

    Been a long time that I've come across such a happy bunch of people holding a stock. Paid pumpers?

  • by jkprice Apr 11, 2014 12:57 PM Flag

    After reading today's messages I thought I'd recommend PDH at the low 12's. It is coming up on a div and has been jumping within a 70ct spread lately with the low 12's being the bottom. Also, OZM does look inviting when seen from past perspective. But I believe the shine is off the penny for now and will be dead money for at least a couple more weeks.

    Ya gotta ask yourself if RAD was such a great deal why haven't one of the big guys like CVS gone and bought them? My answer to this question is that for a long time RAD looked like a loser that would NEVER make it back from where it was at 10 years ago. And there was no reason to buy a failing competitor to capture their market share. Just let them fail and get their customers. But in stepped Obamacare. We all know the pharmacy is the winning element within RAD. And Obamacare guarantees revenue. I see RAD stores becoming more like a 7-11 with a pharmacy. Will that dynamic work? Maybe. But if Obamacare ends with Obama--------watch out here.

    As far as I've determined when the VXX reaches 44 it is the time to start buying. Not to go all in. But start getting back in. If it hits 48 in a rush I'd be real worried about where we're going.
