    panic sellers

    50/50?
    How did you arrive at those odds?
    And if you really think it's just a gamble, why are you investing here at all? Why not just go to Vegas?
    Do you keep up with the news, are you familiar with the lawsuits and the facts of the case?
    If so, you know the government is I violation of the law, even as it defines the law in its own documents and and doesn't have a leg to stand on.
    Fnma is under conservatorship right now, legally. If you understand what that means, legally, I think you would have a good reason for investing here, whereas right now you make it sound like you're just playing roulette.
    Don't get fooled by traders. Be an investor.
    All stocks have huge price fluctuations in the short term. So what? Investors don't care. Fnma fluctuations are bigger and faster than many stocks but high volatility doesn't make something a gamble.
    Also not sure how you got burned? Did you sell for a loss in the past instead of holding your shares? If you did that was your mistake. Jo one forced you to sell. No investor would sell. That's why you shouldn't trade if you want the big payoff that comes with longterm investment. Trading is gambling. Investing in FNMA is not.

    You can find the article on the website: housingwire

    Article is positive but user comment is misleading. Someone here should educate him

    35 per share, you mean? Nothing less would be reasonable as a rise in pog will confirm soon enough

    It's always darkest before the dawn.

    Aveo no longer met klarman's investing criteria. He always cuts investments that lose a certain percentage or fall a certain amount. He does this to preserve capital , regardless of future potential.

    Ironic though: he disposed of his stake right before a major positive transitional event: aveo got EMA submission eligibility! So it may turn out that the FDA rejection that wrecked this stock will be redeemed by EMA approval. Chances are much better with the EMA than the FDA. And will result in a big price reversal. But Klarman won't be around to enjoy it.

    Aveo is quietly making all the right moves.

    Think about the value this company represents. Try to come up with a reasonable valuation based on that.

    If it sold for 2 , it would be selling for .80 more than net cash.

    Does that seem like a fair valuation to you? The medical assets the company represents are worth .80, worth less than the cash it has?

    Bashing on this board has definitely reached beyond psychotic proportions.

    I decided to get serious with the ignore function and have found that after putting the bashers on ignore, about 99% of the messages are gone.

    Crazy the lengths some short funds will go to to defend a position and even crazier how low some people will sink just to make a few cents on each post. Yes I know some of these people post 100 times a day, but it's still a sad, unethical, and impractical way to make money.

    Nice to see some actual news posted here, and something relevant to AMD's business.

    Interesting there is no reply to this and no discussion in the thread.

    Meanwhile bashers have managed to create bloated threads full of "short and distort" fear tactics and take over the board.

    I am starting to get more strict with my use of the "ignore" function. Too much time wasted by sheer drivel.

    Why NVDA @ $20 and AMD @$ 2.7

    AMD is "virtually bankrupt."

    Better send the memo to Microsoft, Sony, Verizon, and Apple.

    You clearly have information large companies doing business with AMD lack. I'm sure the executives at Microsoft, Sony, Verizon, and Apple, would appreciate it if a chronic Yahoo msg board bahser were to share his wisdom with them.

    What are you waiting for? Stop wasting your time here and take your bankruptcy gospel to the offices of these corporations. Get on it, man!

    I Doubled Down In VALE Today...

    talk is cheap, cheetah.

    since you claim to know for certain the OP is making a big mistake, lay out the correct "course of action" he should take.

    Put your money where your mouth is, since you claim to know.

    What would you have the OP buy as opposed to VALE?

    Do you want him to go long SPY at these levels?

    Should he buy one of the overvalued megacaps that has been going up non-stop since 2009?

    What should he do?

    Since you are benevolent and knowledgeable and obviously here to help out less knowledgable people, tell the poster HOW he can correct his mistake.

    It's doubtful we'll need to wait 5-10 years to see what happens with VALE. A big shift in the equity and commodity markets could take place at any time.

    You tell the OP what to do, and we'll all meet back here in 2016 to compare, and see whose plan is working out best so far, yours or the OPs.

    here's another example of a smart investor: Seth Klarman, with his purchases of IDIX. Lots of short term traders were mocking him on the IDIX msg board when IDIX was trading in the 3's, because short term traders have very little understanding what smart investing means. most of those short term traders were short IDIX, just as you're short SNTA. Might want to take a look and see how that whole story turned out before you take on any more ill advised risk. I know serf-importantly mocking a billionaire on a yahoo message boards makes you feel good now, but I doubt you'll consider this small pleasure worth cost, when you end up losing your life savings.

    When is the dividend cut coming?

    by jb500013 Dec 9, 2014 3:05 PM
    jupiter_symphony33 jupiter_symphony33 Dec 10, 2014 1:42 AM Flag

    If you're dreaming of a trading price of $10 it meas you are VERY late to the trade and have foolishly shorted at the lows, which is certainly not investing, and doesn't even deserve to be called trading, it's pure gambling.

    Here's the fact you need to confront: if THRX cuts the dividend at all, they won't cut it before you close your short. So that means you get to pay it out of your own pocket. Obviously you don't like paying it, and that's why you're desperately hoping it gets cut.

    Shorting a stock where the big short money has already been made on a 50% + drop, is never a wise idea, unless you have some insider info to justify your position, though they wouldn't be wise either, since it would be illegal.

    Or maybe you think there's just no limit to the downside here because THRX is going bankrupt soon?

    Or maybe you've forgotten that THRX will be bought out by GSK, and no one knows when it will happen, but it could happen any time?

    I remember plenty of posts by characters like you on the IDIX board, not long before IDIX was bought out for 250% higher than the price it was trading at. I hope you're prepared for that eventuality. with THRX. At least I hope you're more prepared for it than the IDIX shorts were. They spent a lot of time screaming about how IDIX was headed for the pinks. And now? They've lost their trading accounts. That's how the market rewards those who think they know things nobody else does. Just like you think you know a dividend cut is coming, and prefer to ignore things which are much more widely known, because they jeopardize the short position you're defending here. A dangerous approach if you ask me. Good luck ; you're going to need it!
