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 Some news is very old and out of date.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.
That ETF has had massive out flows in the last few days. Consequently they threw out the baby with the bath water. The airlines have lost ground but not for long.
This is what it's all about. The trend is your friend despite the naysayers.
Rad is moving uptown and will be an excellent buy, long term.
The monthly report for December discounted the closed stores as well as the new remodeled stores.
The newly remodeled stores, that were counted, did very well.
That remodeling has only been accomplished for 30% of the stores, with more to come in 2015.
All the stores that have a high rate of pilferage have been closed. Leases have been terminated in many stores and in many cases will drop off the debt side of Rad.
So for 2015 look for more remodeled stores.
If these stores bring in the income like the newly remodeled stores have done, then it's upside in PPS for the future.
Reply to Kored: As the old wolf told little red riding hood, "IF the stock falls all the more to buy more my little sweetie".
To Casey: What are doing on the CVX board? Go back to the RAD board where you belong.
Since I have you on ignore I have no idea what your response is. But I imagine it is to attack CVX.
You mean Al Gore and his rich cronies.
No one, and I mean no one controls, or has any affect on global changes than good ol mother nature.
Why?? Because they are so diversified in upstream and downstream production and products.
They will make money no matter what the cost of oil is.
Sure, not as much, but they won't crater as much as the other majors.
Long and strong!
P.S. This is the problem with our educational system. Be it financial, health care or how to balance a checkbook. They are paying more attention to their facebook or playing games on computers.
Not being short is a pretty smart move.
High sixes? I doubt that.
Lower maybe due to MM activity, but the sixes are gone.
Global cooling is here. Please don't say it's true VP Al Gore.
You need to make global warming come again. I'm freezing my but off.
Oh by the way: How much did you and your friends make in the last few years telling us that mother nature was not to blame but us citizens of the world.
