It shows very good strength in the coming weeks. December sales results will be a very, very important number.
Us retail investors need to be ready when they come out.
For me, as always, I'll be ready to pounce one way or the other.
Merry Xmas and happy holidays.
A wee bit of tax loss selling. I did the same thing with AA to reduce my taxes this year.
I'll be back prior to or after earnings.
A typical pattern of stock resting and catching it's breath.
Waiting for next week to see where it settles, either up or down before adding more shares.
Will someone please come up with the lives saved with the Takata air bag system since 2008 vs the few who have died.
Next qtr. and the following qtr. will be pretty good. Only 33% of stores have been remodeled with more to come every month.
The market makers and unbelievers are holding it down.
If your planning to buy, like I've said before, wait until a few days after the dust settles on this tug of war on pps.
It could drop 5% in the next few days or go up another 5%. But patience is the name of the game for RAD.
JPM and GS had positive remarks today on RAD. The UBS upgrade was very encouraging and I expect more in the next few weeks or the next qtr.
RAD is only for long term holders and believers. Disappointing moves to the down side has happened time and time again.
Like Tinker Bell, you need to believe and clap your hands for todays positive move.
Been in RAD for 7 years.
Like I said yesterday.
RAD numbers came in better than the big boys expected but not as high as some would want. So we have the tug of war. The shorts are relentless when it comes to RAD. As you can see they are holding it down below $7.
If and when this price point is reached and exceeded the 2.4% of short stocks will decrease by covering.
But so far the war goes on.
It's about time that RAD does a nice article, much better than previous stories about what's in store for the holidays.
From an investor standpoint I feel this is another feather in RAD's hat for the future of RAD in general.
As always, like the sun comes up and night follows, there are after hours sales that push RAD down.
But the drop of one cent and not more is positive in my opinion.
What do I expect tomorrow? I expect a tug of war between the shorts and the longs during the day as well as after hours.
If the numbers are well above what is expected, and most important, the outlook is positive watch it run.
If it is just so so watch out below. For me, as stated before, I'll wait a few days if the numbers or outlook is so so and buy more in a few days waiting for stabilization in pps.
Non the less, it will be an interesting day.
As someone mentioned yesterday about ACE/Casey boy being paid bashers for some big short group I think he may be 50% right. Good luck to the retail believers tomorrow.
As always, i'll listen and read the report on Thursday. I'll increase my holdings on Friday or Monday one way or the other. I'll watch to see if the shorts pile on before my entry. If they don't then I think we are off to the races.
I wouldn't jump in with both feet. Maybe one due to high volume and great pps movement today.
But if you have followed RAD for a long time, you know how quickly things can turn.
So be careful and hope for a great report on Thursday. Then you can put a couple more toes in. But beware of the consistent attack by the boogie man (shorters) they are relentless with RAD.
I give the following advise.
On the 18th we will see what RAD has accomplished. If it is positive, like I expect, we may be on a roll to higher prices. If not expect a drop of 10% or more.
For myself, I will pay close attention to the numbers.
I won't sell a share even if it falls unless there is some undermined numbers that are beyond my comfort zone.
But, and I say but, that there are those big guys who run the stock up and down on millions of shares on a regular basis to make mucho bucks, no matter what the earnings are.
This action takes the retail investors for a stomach churning ride like myself.
As I have said many, many times in the past you need to only invest what you can afford to lose.
It wont go BK but it will make you wish you didn't invest in RAD.
So, what do I believe in? If you are like me,I believe in RAD. So I stick with it for the long term. As of this time it has been 7 years.
So you may have an appreciation of my investment in RAD.
Bottom line, in my most humble opinion, RAD is a winner.
Barrons article on GOOG is pretty upbeat on future growth and cash flow. I expect some interesting trades next week.
Maybe the bottom is in. At least I hope so. Been buying too much coal for xmas for the last few weeks.
Right on ! These prices are only there to get you in the store. The retailer still pays the price Apple expects from it's retailers. What the retailers sell them for is their decision.
Just don't expect the stores to have enough Apple products to satisfy all the buyers.
A limited supply only.
