It's this type of early information shared to special groups that put the retail investor at a disadvantage.
It happens with almost all stocks. Someone gets wind of an announcement to be broadcast at a later time and that news causes an updraft or downdraft in the price of a stock.
How about this, there is great or bad news on a stock. Then within minutes there is a rush to contradict the earlier news by other organizations.
So how does the retail investor defend themselves from this game? You don't.
For long term investors, that believe in a company stock, it makes no difference.
For the short term investors, it can cause heartburn and loses of investment capital.
Always keep, in these trying times, 25% of your investment capital portfolio in cash.
Just for those rainy and trying times.
I agree. But they need to correct the stealing of other peoples paid accounts.
I hope their listening.
thank you for my first response.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not counting responses.
I just believe this is a turning point in health care, if or when it happens.
I just hope they can pull it off.
It's not because I own 100 shares of Apple.
It's because I may have the ability to see, before it happens, a sudden and unexpected heart attack and then leave my kids and grandchildren without their dad and papa.
PLease Apple, give us this opportunity to avoid sudden death.
I know that's morbid.
But on the funny side they will all be scrambling to grab my I phone, Ipad and Mack Book.
Ha Ha. Just kidding about that.
None of them would ever want me to go away.
As an investor in LXRX for too many years, and have no idea what you Dr. types are saying. What prompted this massive buying in the last few minutes.
I know there is a reverse split on Wed. but I'm confused why the massive buying. Is it the split or something else?
Can you explain in very simple terms on why this is happening for a simpleton like myself.
Thank you in advance.
Sorry to tell you trendsetter. But there are those out there that have 5, 6 or more piggy backing on a Netflix account.
They have finally realized that their system is being hacked by others.
The way to see this is the time it takes to upload shows and how you are knocked out and need to reboot a program. This can take a long time with many starts and stops.
By the way, it does not fail others that are piggybacking your account. It just comes to a crawl for everyone including the real paying customer.
Netflix needs to advise customers that if they are having problems, to show them how to change passwords and tell them not to share with others.
They in turn (Netflix) will add a few more million customers who have been spoiled using other peoples usage and be forced to get their own contract per month.
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.
I didn't know they sell ice cream by the scoop.
You need to go to that 79 flavor store, or whatever they call it and get really ripped off.
You should have told them for that price you want a bigger scoop. I would have and been given a bigger scoop as well. Negotiate next time.
I do know one thing. The more people taking advantage of your account causes a significant drop in your viewing pleasure.
I've heard that the waiting time and interuptions to your viewing is constantly being messed up.
The more people on your account causes undue stress while your paying for others to mess you up while watching content.
Netflix must find a way to find who has been giving content to family and friends who are piggy backing from some paying customers.
Those who give out passwords for their accounts to a friend or family member may find out their friends or family members may be giving your account to others as well.
Bottom line is you are waiting, and waiting while the show your watching is being constantly dropped.
That tells you one thing. your account is being stolen.
As a senior I feel there are two very important things that would make me, as well as millions of baby boomers want an Apple watch.
#1 blood pressure monitoring.
#2 heart beats. I know they already have that.
It's like having a first alert on your body to warn you of impending DEATH.
Oh. Did I forget the millions of young men and women who,on a yearly basis, die from high blood pressure and abnormal heart beats.
Or the runners, joggers, health nuts, triathalon people, doctors, lawyers, etc. etc. that die each year. NO.
It was always a terrible sudden happening that could have been prevented if a person knew they are heading toward a sudden Death situation.
I haven't been told yet if the #1 will be able to be incorporated in the watch.
But if it is all my family members will be wearing that watch.
Lets put it this way, hundreds of millions will be buying the watch. Young and old.
It will be the most important product to prevent early death in this century.
Yes I own Apple stock.
Rad is a stock that can move 10% down during the day and by the end of the trading, or a day or so, go right back up.
When the market see's a number of stop losses available they will hit your stop loss to get your shares.
If you feel you need a stop loss in a particular stock, then you shouldn't own it.
It shows your scared to lose money and you don't believe in it's future.
Just a word of wisdom from someone who has played this game years ago on stocks and learned a big lesson.
I've put stop losses on stocks to protect me for a 15% loss or more and was stopped out.
Before the day was up my stock was sold and increased in value the same day or within a day or two over and above the value before it fell.
As always, I like to say, keep cash funds in your total investment holdings at least 25%. It's a rainy day fund.
Oh yea, one more thing. When the news and life in general hands you a curve ball, what do you do?
You go to the movies or watch movies on tv.
I avoid news stories like the plague. So depressing. The political networks as well. Right and Left sided reporting is also so darn upsetting.
Then you have to watch the darn commercials. On the evening news it's all about selling drugs with warnings that the side affects are worse than your health problems. Those pills that give you an erection when you want it, I tried them. All they did for me was to give me an erection in my eyes.
Regarding having to stop all the time on a trip with your buddies to pee. Stay the hell at home or carry an empty dark bottle. Your with your buddies, who cares if you take it out in the convertable. When you empty it, make sure your down wind. An old navy trick.
Since then I turned my elderly parents on to Netflix.
They continue to thank me for the suggestion. They can now watch old movies and tv shows they loved when they were younger and I was a kid.
I now have 5 grandchildren and they love the children's content. Watching some of the cartoon shows I watched as a kid is a hoot.
We sit on the couch together, between reading coloring and fighting their Papa, we laugh together at the shows and enjoy the movies for their age groups.
My favorite is Courage The Cowardly Dog.
I have not, in many months, watched commercial TV. In the evening when the grandkids are gone I'll watch two or three of my favorite Netflix series.
Yes I have bought shares of Netflix once I bought the subscription and realized how great it was.
I feel once you're into the content and shows presented by Netflix, you'll never go without it.
Super cheap for what you get.
P.S. I just finished the United States of Tara, recommended by my daughter. Fantastic!
Unfortunately it was cancelled after 3 years.
Now I know what the term marathon watching is about.
Sorry from rambling. It's an age thingy, as my children and grandchildren call it.
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.
I thought it was only available soon in NY city.
Where is the location? In Los Angeles?
Last night, out to dinner with my wife, I mentioned this company and the double chin modification. She said, to my surprise, that she saw it mentioned on tv.
She want's it done and was asking when she can get it.
I told her it might be a few months.
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.
Then have a smoke, light some candles, drink some wine and then give.
No prayers needed for those who have no belief. Enjoy!
Some how, I don't know how, I may have people on my account who have slowed down my viewing pleasure.
Nflx should have a process to notify those who are paying customers that there are a number of people using your service. Like how many TV's are authorized on your plan. Three, four, five or more stealing and piggy backing on your account.
If NFLX is listening, which I hope they are, they are losing a bundle of money by those stealing NFLX from paying customers.
As a stock holder I want to know, and I'm sure NFLX as well, how much content is being unlawfully taken from paid users or those who have given their passcodes to others.
I know, as well as others, world wide, who are sharing their account to others, relatives etc. who should be a paying customer.
NFLX is losing a ton of money by not having a way to uncover these crooks.
Patience is a vertrue.
You need to believe. If not you need to leave.
A stock like this takes a lot of faith to hang on to.
It will go up and down and all around. And where it stops nobody knows.
So what should you do, what should you do?
Well, as I have posted many times in the past, never buy more than you can afford to lose.
Don't get me wrong, it won't go BK. But in a real bad market downturn Rad could lose 25-35% value or more in a heart beat.
And many of you will be stopped out or in a panic sell.
I only say this because with stocks this low it's like a lottery ticket to many investors, hoping their numbers will come in. Spending money that they cannot afford to lose.
Myself, I'm a strong long term investor in RAD. I can take a beating on RAD and keep on ticking.
As with most of my posts, I feel your investment portfolio should be at least 25% in cash.
Being all in is a disaster waiting to happen and a fools game.
I've been investing in stocks long before 95% of you were born.
Take my word for it, from an old timer that's been through the best and worst of times playing the casino game of stocks.
FYI, I'm 36% cash at this time. Just waiting for good or bad things to happen.
But I must say that if you live in these communities, do give to your local fund raising groups that you know and trust to help those in need.
