    is not a surprise;
    but for last couple of years in a trading range about 72-90;
    share price higher/lower based on weather, crop and farmers reaction (or act of God-lol).
    Waiting for some news to push LNN higher and stay higher over 90.
    VMI or some other company might find LNN a good fit.
    In the meantime, buy on the dips, hold and pray for good news.

    News link hasn't moved WB higher; need confirmation via Ma words of wisdom.
    If WB returns to 16-17 range, more sellers or better buying opportunity for a bounce to 19-20?
    WB good for the day trade (lol).

    ZTS better buy on pullbacks than to chase at higher prices toward dream target 50;
    Main reason ZTS going higher is Ackman's stake pushing to sell company at higher price (lost out on AGN).
    ZTS look to go no lower than 39-40 range to scare recent sellers.
    Besides, ZTS board now playing hardball and if they sell company, want highest price;
    Whose to buy ZTS in biggest question...

    XPO prone for pullbacks like in the past; this has been the longest pullback/profit-taking;
    take the slow approach and dollar-cost average on the way down;
    unless it is different this time, XPO should bounce back over 40 IMO.
    You can compare against CHRW and buy that one for momentum buyers.

    Never wrong...never met such a perfect trader!
    MOV good for a dead-cat bounce and 30 reachable but will take time, like a couple weeks.
    How about giving us an example of another trade you are never wrong and time frame to achieve the results.
    Love your modesty (lol).

    At what price...under 20?
    Your rumors won't get others to bite and buy.
    How much of a paper loss do you have?

    Hedge fund/VRX has a Plan B on the table if they lose on AGN.
    News imply ACT is white knight to the rescue.
    Ackman's hedge fund and VRX to walk away and target ZTS.
    In other words, no bidding war for AGN.
    ACT won't overpay, negotiating on price and I won't be surprised it is in the range 205-215 for VRX to be too high to pursue. ACT could walk away, too, but opportunity knocks for a 2nd time.
    I want to see board meeting come about in December 2014 and see if AGN blinks.
    Just my 2 cents.

    how low?

    The dude asked a question and you provide a smart#$%$ reply!
    How about telling us your position...what price you bought SLV and where it is headed - guru!
    Looks good to dollar-cost average SLV at lower price with a stop at 12 IMO.

  • any clues as for the going price? Sons running the company doesn't have the magic touch like pa.

    Granted they got lots of real estate on the books since the 1920s (?), however, whose out there?

    Supermarkets are a cash-flow company, WMK no debt, just a lagging stock price.

    I'll like to see 55-60, but that might be asking too much.

    Hold for the dividend (lol).

    That was the rumor when NTLS spunoff from LMOS at about 18.xx or less than 1/2 the going price.

    Now that NTLS sunk to single digits, don't be surprised a low-ball offer 12-13 instead of 23-25.

    Which company willing to buy NTLS with deteriorating financials (losses) - S?

    The big boys institutions have dumped NTLS at over 12.xx with the elimination of the dividend; cost savings to rebuild its network infrastructure?

    Only positive I see is NTLS have seen it lows (maybe); need to form a base. Give credit to the marketmakers stepping; if more negative news, NTLS could see under 5. This one is for the value stock owners with patience.

    Wall St. has pushed RYAM lower for the 2nd day, making new 52-week lows.
    The feeling is RYAM earnings will follow RYN...marked lower. RYAM could see its stock under 20.
    Will an auditor come out and say RYAM earnings valid without adjustments lower?
    The ambulance chasing law firms coming out; but only focus is on RYN.
    Honest mistake or fraud has to be determined.
    YIKES - RYAM won't see 30 anytime soon with creative accounting issues.

    The key is if the balance sheet is for real and not subject to adjustments lower.

    Accounting adjustments is a significant factor which moves stock price higher/lower. In RYN's case, you see the stock reaction due to Cost of Goods factor.

    Wall St. believes both companies in the same boat on accounting adjustments. Can Wall St. analysts be wrong or calling it right.

    What do you expect to happen tomorrow - RYAM go lower, or have a dead-cat bounce (because of RYN news affected RYAM).

    looks like the seller might be gone

    I'm long IMMR with average cost 9.34, buying on the way down.
    Like the other dude says, IMMR has a great product but management style has not produced increased shareholder value. Change whose in charge to make IMMR higher?
    Some like shorting and bash IMMR will go to 0; sorry, that's not me.
    Therefore, it is your interpretation of my writing style...cautious outlook on IMMR.
    GLTA long and shorts IMMR.
    IMMR has a chance to go back over 10 before 2014 is over.

    Not since September xx, 2014 has IMMR touched 9.xx

    Very good sign that all who wanted to dump IMMR did so, to form a tight trade range, before positive news push IMMR over 10?

    No guarantees, IMMR might have a relapse and head back down to 8.xx

  • WSJ has a story of potential buyers of AVG.
    Just wondering if buyers are interested in the cash flow business to take it private.
    At what price is a reasonable offer to all?
    AVG once traded $26, however, the offer probably max out at $25 for low bid; but still more than 40 percent higher than current depressed price.
    The WSJ story has meat if trading on Friday 11/7/14 AVG opens at over 20;
    If not, then just noise.
    Comments welcome!

    I cant believe this is down today

    Market correction pushed XPO down to 31.xx back in mid October.

    That was bargain buy for the bounce.

    I would dollar-cost average on the way down with a 35 stop.

    BJ wants to buy more companies like his past history to make XPO go higher to target 45-50.

    Debt servicing is no issue in a good economy; but when recession comes about.

    Notice the bottom fishers have come in to buy on the dips.

    40 target in a couple of weeks in a rising stock market...but no guarantees.

    I bought at various XPO price in teens, lower 20s, lower 30s; sold some on the way up 27; then had the spike to mid-30s. I don't expect a round-trip unless there are accounting issues.

    Quarterly report

    joetong419 joetong419 Nov 6, 2014 10:14 AM Flag

    unlike previous quarterly announcement, NP has moved lower this time.

    Earnings exceeded estimates.

    This is to be expected; could be profit-taking sell on the news on average volume.

    Now to see how much lower before moving higher. I say no lower than 55-58 range.

    $70 by end of 2014 not 11/30/14. Give it more time, unless some significant event happens to NP.

  • joetong419 joetong419 Nov 6, 2014 5:33 AM Flag

    Z will gap down and test 90 for support when market opens 11/6/14.

    Many say 70 is the floor.

    What goes up, must come down, especially high flyers momentum stocks like Z; will now go oversold.

    If you were short, the wait was very long, just like HLF.

    Barron's article a few months ago predicted Z shortfall.

  • Earnings for 9/30/14 and was higher than consensus.
    Appears INT was/is perceived as a stock that goes lower as oil price goes lower.
    This was not the case and INT has bounced off the lows 38-39 (or could be a dead-cat bounce?)
    Watch to see if INT can rise to 45-48 before the downward spiral of 6/30/14 earnings.
    Medium risk/reward IMO.
    Anyone else has an alternative opinion on INT where INT headed by 12/31/14?
