Since I am stuck anyway and have no chance of escape from this stock, I might as well change the sell order from $85 to $95. This is the first step of going down with the titanic. Call me capitan kool from now on.
I am not skilled at differentiating between temporary head faker parabolic spikes and real sustained long term rallies
If I could know, I would short after the b s spikes
You are not holding IOC bud, you are stuck with it like I am. Helpless and tossed around on the waves of luck, you and I share the bad luck of falling for the deal-related hype & hoopla
I must have had really bad karma in the past which I believe personally made me buy IOC, clouding my judgement and falling for the deal-related dog and pony show of the past, which has now seemingly turned into darkness and silence.
Thank you IOC. Would you like me to bend over some more?
Here's an idea:
I am just thinking out loud of wanting to start my own co. some day. Then maybe I will project an aura to the world that a great deal is coming which will rock the entire world and make the investors millionaires upon a possible buyout of my co very very soon.
Then stock will rise like crazy temporarily with that brilliant strategy of mine. Then I will keep silent for months and years. Even then all the investors will be my loyalists, no matter what I do to them, they will sing my praises, they will be my pumpers, my foot soldiers, no matter how low the stock goes from that high level, even if MY imaginary co. goes 6 ft under eventually, they will keep me on a high pedestal and tell everyone how promising my co. is. and how great I am.
Why did I not think of this idea before? Can I do it? Should I. Will you join my company's exclusive pumpers club
Maybe their tagline should now be: IOC, where everybody who bought 5 years ago is a winner, and everybody who buys now is a LOSER
Have to resort to shorting. This stock will tease you with a brief rally, and then once you fall for it, it will race south again. and it is a confirmed pattern as I see it. Have to short like you after any and every spike with a 2nd broker.
I took the bait and you know what happens to someone who takes a bite out of any sweet bait.
high risk and high reward, or high risk and high loss stock?
Maybe even higher. No wonder everyone and their momma are buying at these levels. Sell at $20s, buy anywhere here
Sentiment: Strong Buy
No wonder SA article makes all the sense now
Sentiment: Strong Sell
SA thank you for saving us.
You opened our eyes and made us realize the truth. Thank you Jesus, Thank you SA
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Did we not go through the same deal hype back in early summer. Now, we are falling for it all over again.
Am looking for escape routes first and foremost.
So the bait is being dangled once or twice a month is what you are sayin? What are they accomplishing by doing that? Whats their ulteriour motive behind such stunts?
Seeking Alpha does a lot of good though. and what do they mean, this stock could be a "FAD"?
what about Longwei or PUDA or sino forest and other chinese co.s?? the list goes on and on...its endless i think
Thank you mgmt for all that you do. Silence is golden and darkness is divine I guess. Why turn the lights on and let us know about anything when we can all slumber in the dark, at least when we are not stumbling around in it.
Yeah please don't tell us anything ever again and let us remain guessing as to what may be going on. We will eventually begin to love this darkness too.
Potential is there, it is excellent but will these guys ever deliver on their great potential?
Or will this turn out to be yet another hype & bait?
