A moth ago I mentioned that when the rumors of a buy out no longer exist, be patient.
I mentioned that if it happened, no more rumor, that we could go down to about $7.33 or there abouts.
That would be a good price to add to your holdings.
I did just that.
But I still have my total portfolio in 25% cash, as I have recommended time and time again.
Just for emergencies and special occasions.
P.s. Please keep the people in tornado areas in your prayers.
If you contribute to these disasters, as I hope you do, give to the salvation army and red cross only.
Do make sure you stipulate where these funds are to go.
Part of my 25% cash is going to these communities. It's an emergency to help out our fellow americans.
I forget what the bible says but I think it is, you will be rewarded 10 times over helping others in need.
Me and my family have been rewarded 100 times over for helping the poor, helpless and those in need.
Keep everyone in your prayers. No matter what your beliefs are.
Another day of high volume.
It appears that some group of investors are keeping Rad on their radar.
Better appealing stores, better locations, better earnings, great new associations and company purchases, reduction in debt, recent upgrades etc.
Oh yea covering by long time shorts.
Also the manipulating groups who have for years run the stock up and then run it down are finding it less lucrative to play this game anymore. Lets hope thats the case.
Ace must be looking for a new job. His years of bashing Rad, I hope, is over.
I really think he was a paid basher by one of these manipulating companies.
You should never invest in a stock hoping for a buyout.
As a long time investor, I want Rad to stand alone on their own two feet.
There have been a ton of messages recently regarding RAD. Why? Because there are a few of those that post nonsense and have no idea where RAD has been and where it is going. Excluding ACE of course and his numerous names that call for the great losses expected in RAD.
RAD will continue to do well in the LONG term. Not necessarily next qtr.or the next year but long term.
Many on this message board are either long or short hoping to change the minds of others.
I have no idea that there could be a buyout, and I don't care. Some on this board are hoping there will be one.
Most of all the long term holders, like myself, would rather have RAD prove that it can stand on it's own.
Why? Because we feel RAD on it's own will be worth more than any take over offer, and we have been in RAD many dollars ago.
Now,as usual, I implore all investors to keep at least 25% of their total portfolio in cash.
Good night and good luck!!
You will loose your shares in the very near future at $9.03
At that point you will kick yourself and need to buy at a higher price.
Only us long term holders believe in RAD's future.
You short term traders need to get out or get in for more shares.
We are totally aware that RAD can slip and slide in price on a regular basis.
We use the fall off in price to buy more when it happens.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not here to knock your order to sell hmls, only to say the majority on this board are in for the long term and wouldn't sell even at $10.
For me, I'm looking out at 12-18 months for RAD to prove itself as a great turn around stock.
I would hope others will agree with me that are here for the long haul.
A few million shares traded in the last 5 minutes. It tells you something.
What does it tell us? Hang in there and say goodby to the 7's.
It seems to be people trying to out do one another regarding Apple and not seeing the trees through the forest.
Bla, Bla, Bla.
I don't see Apple seeing $240 a share anytime soon like Carl is expecting. But I believe in a number, of things.
Like me, as well as 20% of other Apple I phone owners, we have not upgraded just yet to the 6's.
But we will.
My 5 will be a new 6s soon. Why? Because my sight is less than it use to be.
I'm not afraid of bending it. I'm more afraid of my grandchildren throwing it against the floor.
No matter I'll get the best non destructive cover just in case and get the insurance since they always grab my phone. Especially the three year olds.
You need to see my post regarding the watch. To me this will be the highest selling object from Apple in the future for health awareness. Only if they can come up with blood pressure along with the heart rate.
This product alone can save hundreds of thousands of lives each year if it can incorporate the blood pressure.
If it does, I cant think of a single person who would not want it on their wrist.
We'll see. I'll keep my faith in Apple to come up with the application.
One other thing. To have the information passed on to my Dr. in a timely manner will keep you and me alive, rather than have a sudden Death situation.
At this time, RAD has the lowest percentage of shorts in my total portfolio holdings of 30+ stocks.
RAD has become a stock to hold. Long term. I emphasise long term only because it has had a history of violent ups and downs. When it drops considerably I've been buying.
As I've said before, RAD is an Eagle growing and spreading it's wings from it's near death.
RAD is moving uptown.
If you want to short this stock you are now in a very small group who have lost a ton of money trying to drive RAD down to collect a few pennies on hundreds of thousands of shares by shorting.
Their game is up !
RAD is now a focus stock that is growing beyond what previous investors thought possible.
For me, I continue to hold RAD, as I have for years waiting for the great turn of events that will propel RAD to a PPS more than anyone imagined.
Of course, as always, I suggest your total investment portfolio should be holding 25% cash.
When the market goes down big time and you need cash you can hold on to investments you believe in rather than take a loss trying to raise cash.
This 25% cash holding is for emergencies. Cash is king and don't ever forget it.
For myself I think BP did an admirable job on paying those who has lost value due to the break as well as the blood suckers who lost nothing but got money anyway. I hope BP goes after these crooks.
Unfortunately for BP our clean water act will bleed them and send the money to you know who.
It's only work place violence, nothing more
Yea, our leaders need more money. The banks, oil companies, insurance companies etc don't have much to give anymore so let the airlines contribute their share.
As the tide has gone out the last few days, at least RAD is still floating and not sitting on the sand.
the norm, price retraction.
Yes the market naysayers always expect the worse. So a downtrend in pps is expected.
So what should you do? If your scared then bail out. If your a believer in Rad's long term investment possibilities then you hang tough. If I see a drop of 5% or more I'll be buying more.
But I will wait for 4-7 days before pulling the trigger.
I may miss the low if that happens but at the same time im willing to let the dust settle before jumping in, but i will at some point.
As I've said many times in the past few years, there is a major group of investors that play Rad for pennies on the dollar trading millions of shares.
Their objective is to have those investors to sell their shares when they force the pps to fall. Then they will turn around and force the pps up and let buyers back in who hope this is the big move up and then doing it all over again to push the pps down.
Message after message will appear. Why you should sell and why you should buy.
The bottom line is your own DD. It will be up to you to determine if this is an investment that will reward you or make you lose a great deal of money. Not just Rad but your other investments as well.
As always, I suggest you keep at least 25% of your investment portfolio in cash.
Cash is king, you never know when you may need it.
In 1987 when the market crashed it took 8 years to recover to even for the average investor. Those that sold were
deer in headlights. Some bailed, never to return.
It took me 4 years to recover to even because I saw great companies that were one half to seventy percent below value and I put my money to work. That 25%.
I may be preaching to the choir for the old timers. But I don't want to see young people risking money that they can ill afford to lose.
"Good luck and good night" Thats a quote that many of you have no idea where it came from.
Between the believers and nonbelievers.
The rope is being pulled by the shorts and sellers on one side and the buyers and longs on the other.
Thursday is the big day to see what group falls into the mud pit.
I hope the shorts can swim.
What you did and why is not my business.
But you did what you felt was right and I applaud you for it.
You'll never go broke taking a profit, as my old pappy used to say. And I never look back if the share price explodes upwards.
You have cash on the sidelines and that's what it's all about.
If RAD goes down along with a market upset or poor earnings you will be very happy with what you did. Cash is always king in any portfolio.
Going all in is a fools game just like trying to catch a falling knife.
So, as a man who is not able to take a terrific downfall, you did the right thing.
Good night and good luck.
Many,who have been in RAD for years, are enjoying the ride. But at the same time are not crazy since we all know what can happen in a down turn when we will buy more stock.
I don't put too much faith in a cvs or walgreen takeover.
One more thing. The short ratio has dropped 1.6%.
Bottom line is that the non retail investors are stuffing their stockings with RAD. And the shorts negative feelings about RAD's turnaround.is turning more of them into believers.
Yes. Many times. But it was said long ago that Apple could incorporate this ability.
How? Apple only knows.
My point was, if it was capable that this could be incorporated in the watch, it would be a major, major jump in the watch purchases.
