You have brought up everything I've been saying.
Bottom line, like many stock posters, there are those who wan't you to buy or to sell a certain stock.
Many are paid to post. On weekends you will see many posters gone. They are the ones assigned to make people sell or buy a stock.
Now, regarding RAD. This company is a great turn around story. Just think about the financials, autos and the airlines. All left for dead. Now where are they? On a percentage basis they have increased in price many times more than RAD.
IMHO RAD will reach the recent numbers talked about in the press. It could be higher than the $8 number that has been thrown about.
Once they get their up front numbers ahead of expectations you can expect RAD to fly. Just like a Phoenix RAD will move uptown.
Just like Buffett has said,"when there is blood in the street make your moves on companies that were good investments before and should be over the long term".
The only one to fire is Gore .
For one reason. He is so gung ho on global warming that he has tunnel vision VS mother nature.
Apple is nothing but an after thought to him.
We need people on the board who are 110% dedicated to APPLE and nothing else.
As far as Tim is concerned, he needs to be more upfront when others continue to bash his company.
It's like the repugs, they take #$%$ every day and never respond to their critics.
As a stock holder I expect responses to the critics against my stock.
Every single day we hear those who feel APPLE is a dead stock or has lost their way.
Not one response from APPLE!!
GET WITH IT TIM and draw a line in the sand on these critics. Give them some information to calm the market on APPLE.
We know IVY and you can bring great products to APPLE. Now prove it. Don't wait for earnings to tell us so.
Our stock will continue to fall unless we have some confirmation that things are coming to fruition.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
No one listens to you any more.
I've told you years ago at $1 that RAD has a future and you never listened.
You need to move on to other stocks and leave RAD to the believers.
In all due respect I appreciate your comments, but I feel you have lost your way.
Non of this yea but stuff.
They captured the essence of RAD's turn around and future prospects.
What caught my attention was not only the continued upgrades of old stores but the possibility of their influence in the Texas and Florida markets.
Finally the Fools are saying what I've been saying for two years. You need to be in the Texas and Florida markets where people would appreciate your presence.
And the bottom line is, they are moving in.
They have finally closed most of all the stores where their inventory has been lost due to five finger depreciation.
They are on a roll and nothing is stopping them.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
If this watch, at any cost, can let a person know the status of their health on a daily or hourly basis, then this could be a gold mine for APPLE.
Just think of the baby boomers who on a daily basis would like to know what their current risks are.
For myself, I want to know. And would gladly pay whatever to let me know in advance that I'm in danger of some sudden onset emergency.
I gave up on you three years ago after your assessment of many stocks.
You seem to protect yourself at all times when making predictions of a good stock to buy or not to buy.
"It's a good stock but" "We don't like it but"
I've been a long time holder of RAD through thick and thin, unlike ACE.
Even todays article on RAD, after hours, you say RAD has become a stock I didn't like before but now I do.
But,But I will wait to invest. What the heck are you saying? Are you in or out!
Make a commitment or stop sending these FOOLish articles.
For your information RAD has made some smart buys and commitments in the last year.
All in the name of health care. The ACA and the aging population is in their favor.
New updated stores, community contributions and dedication to the wealthfare of it's customers, in my opinion will eventually bring RAD on par with it's competitors.
So in conclusion you need to be in it or out. NO wavering on your assessments for RAD or other stocks.
All this IMHO.
I believe he is spot on regarding RAD. And yes I agree that in some situations it has been the kiss of death. Non the less, if it goes down on Monday I will look to purchase more shares.
I'm a believer in RAD's turnaround.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Far from it. It's the senior in him. Ha Ha.
I guess if he didn't get out of Herbalife you could say he may be a little feeble.
Knowing him I'm sure he started selling as soon as he heard about the investigation last week or at least covered his holdings.
He may sound dumb to you but he is not stupid.
P.S. I do think that RAD will hit and exceed the 52 week high this week after the long report on RAD by Cramer after hours on Friday.
I don't follow his reports unless he talks about shares I own.
I doubt it will hit $20 this year. But I would love it if it did.
To go over$10 I think we need to see a couple more months of store income. Especially front end sales.
If this coming qtr. looks as good as last weeks report you may be right on with your projection of $20.
Been in RAD for years.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
One other thing for you tin can types. Ever try to kick and dent an airplane or hit the side of a military truck.
IT's all in the process of producing high strength aluminum which AA is a leader.
The new aluminum truck rims is new and will, I'm sure, make it's way to cars and light trucks.
All auto makers are looking at this metal to lower weight and increase mileage.
Also the F150 is not the first to use the metal. Many others already use it. And more plan on it.
Why GM has to wait until 2017 to introduce aluminum is beyond me.
I guess it must be Detroit politics.
I agree, the MF group has been down on RAD as an investment many, many times before.
Now they speak of a takeover.
I would be so upset if this was the case. I can just see it, offer $10 a share in a takeover while the future for RAD could lead to $30 a share in a few short years.
Cramer is right when he spent 20 or more minutes discussing RAD. "It is not turning a quarter, it has turned the corner".
The homeless is my prediction. Good luck.
No matter what the numbers are, RAD will increase in price.
This is a turnaround story. The market looks at the future not at the past.
RAD is a great investment. .
