The strategy is meant for all stocks including RAD. I've been in this stock for many years, starting below one dollar.
My only point to the board is don't get over your head on any stock you own.
Keep some safe money and don't be a pig.
I'm a firm believer in RAD and never sold more than 20% of my holdings at any one time.
As I continue to see RAD being manipulated due to this down market I will buy more shares again when it stabilizes.
As far as 25 for RAD, I think there will be time for that but not in the next year or two.
There are too many large holders and ETF"s who play this stock for pennies making money selling and buying on a monthly or weekly basis.
Good luck and keep the faith.
For the past few years your average stock holder has been beholden to these ETF's. They are the big boys who have these marvelous computer systems that will trash and burn with no sympathy to the little guys. Like ourselves. As well as provide great PPS upsides.
So, what is the bottom line? You need to pick and choose what fit's your Long Term Horizon.
Why? Because any stock has the ability to easily lose 50% or more in a washout PPS.
You heard me right. It's happened many times before when investors were caught flat footed expecting more than what the market was willing to pay
So what's the bottom line, once again?? Never invest more than you can afford to lose. Unless you are young enough to wait years to recover your initial investment and can hold on without a financial disaster.
This is not a RAD message. It's for all stocks..
One last thing You never go broke taking profits off the table and having money available for a personal rainy day and also never looking back on what you left on the table.
It's smart investing.
Of course it's my own personal investing strategy. Good luck with yours.
Keep the faith!
F is far ahead of using aluminum in manufacturing auto's than others. They have given away earnings in 2014 to produce a powerful new auto product that no one could imagine. Aluminum auto's and trucks.
AA is also far ahead in contracting their process to aerospace and autos in using high grade aluminum.
So for the F stock holders, 2015 and 2016 should be a great year.
FORD is built tough and don't forget it.
Ford has proven that aluminum is a given in future auto manufacturing. They have perfected the process to be not only cost effective but to make money doing it through the recycle process of discarded metal.
So what happens next? Other auto manufacturers will copy what F has proven to be a winner at lower than expected costs and turn to aluminum.
F is well ahead of that game as well as AA.
Give yourself a cupie doll. Nice pick.
There are a few on this board that did the same.
Most do not respond but watch. Unless needing to respond to stupid remarks by the you know who group.
Never judge an investment by the past or present financial reports.
Look at the future. Does it have a future? Does the management have goals, objectives, and ideas to make the company more profitable in the future? Not next week, not next month or the next quarter but long term?
For me I have confidence in RAD's management and RAD's future.
That's why I own the stock.
It means that any company that needs energy to produce their products will benefit handsomely.
These cost savings will go to the bottom line over time.
GLW is one as well as many others.
Look for companies that are dependent on energy and what these companies can profit from with these lower costs.
Besides GLW and AA, I'm in the airlines and auto's. Just to name a few.
Give or tale a few points.
Rad will stay in green.
I continue to like what I see.
DITO. Very good looking strength. Last week was a strong indication of GLW's future.
What's really interesting is the low volume.
Any thoughts on that?
It's like someone is building shares and doesn't want it to get out of control to the upside.
As most of you who have been on this board a long time and know I'm a long term holder of Rad, seven years to be exact. i'm very familiar on where Rad has been and where I think it's going.
But to be honest I've been a buyer and seller when I felt the need to take profits and when I feel it's time to load up once again do with gusto.
Don't get me wrong, I'm never out of Rad entirely. I own a great deal of Rad.
Keep in mind that this board is made up of those who feel Rad is a loser and those that believe Rad has a great future. I'm the later.
As I've said before, I think of Rad as the turtle and the hare.
Bottom line is if you are a long term holder, you will be rewarded.
Of course this is my HO.
As an insider you must disclose your intentions ahead of time to sell. If they are holding a great deal of stock or options they have two choices. Let the options expire, which is out of the question on a stock like Rad or you make a decision, which is appropriate, to take money off the table for numerous reasons. the tax implications are very high so you must pull out 50% more to pay the IRS.
Life has many twists and turns as I have learned.
No matter how much you believe in your company you need to cash in some and not have all your eggs in one basket.
They will print material that is negative or positive to meet their agenda, long or short. This is the same for any stock. Some news is very old and out of date. Only to convince you to buy or sell.
What do you do? What do you do?
What you do is do your own D&D and stick with what you feel is a good investment or sell it.
And don't pay attention to the chaff of those who want to change your mind one way or another.
As for me, I'm a long term holder of Ford and GM.
Ford has been very up front the last 6 months on what 2015 looked like regarding earnings and sales. Billions would be spent on new models as well as lost revenue due to changing over plants to new models. It's no surprize to long term holders.
The surprize is to those who hate Ford and are short the stock.
This coming year will be a turning point for Ford. IMHO I think all the holders of the stock will have a very good year. Aluminum F150 through the roof along with the small retail vans.
No matter what the cost of fuel is, it's always nice to use less fuel.
Bottom line, less cost overall and more money in the pocket.
GLW has broken out to the upside as I hoped for. Now the question is, what is driving it higher this past few days?
Something must have been announced this week at LVS.
I'm aware of all the new glass and technological advances but have never seen this type of stock movement in years.
At one time, years ago, cable drove GLW through the roof, and It also nearly bankrupted the company when cable fell to nothing.
Now it's fiber, gorilla 4 and flexible glass.
Bottom line is, who knows what from LVS. I don't need scores.
By the way,when you look at the bullet spread on the police vehicle and how methodical the attack was you know these guys were top notch fighters.
As far as someone leaking info regarding the weeks issue to a terrorist group?
Then start with those who were not at work today, or who was bypassed and not shot at during the shooting.
