  • Layoffs is a quick way to get numbers to look better. Citi did the same thing and no w look at them. These guys have no idea how to generate real profit so instead just manipulate the numbers like Citi did and claim growth through layoffs.

  • Too many times have I been fooled by this market it will turn around next week and suck all the money back out. I have to get out now and limit my loses. Even at this price I lose money on this train wreck but I had given up on it and this is a surprise. Any suggestions? Anyone believe this stock will not give back gains?

    ARR missed but it was a Set up

    I assume it is safe until they tell us it is not... no news is good news for now. But, a common share dividend is never really safe... that is why I own the Preferred Share A which is currently at 25.37. It pays .17 cents per month and is callable in 2017 which I believe they would be crazy not to do. But, be warned do not buy thjis stock for a price above 25 because it is callable at 25.

    ARR missed on every number but it was a set up, the Average of the Analysts is taken and one Analyst predicted .23 which drove the Estimate up. They missed on Rev. too. I still think they did better than most people expected and the div is safe with no cuts. But, we will need to hear the conference call to really know where it stands.

  • S&P 500's Rise at Five Times GDP Growth Shows Recovery Is Priced Into Stocks
    By Lu Wang 45 minutes ago

    For almost six years, one of the most powerful bull markets on record has coexisted with the weakest economic recovery since World War II. This month's selloff in stocks shows how much investors want that to change.

    This is not new, I got into TVIX because of this, but I did not know it was this bad. In my opinion if you are an investor out to make a profit you have to take a position against the market in some way or another. This is a dream come true for investors... it is like rain it has to fall. When it does it does not mater what positin you hold the TVIX or the SQQQ or whatever your are going to make serious money. Please go to Yahoo and read this article... it just makes no sense to be short right now on this stock. You should have been shorting Twitter instead.

  • In case you did not know earnings are coming out after the bell. I encourage everyone to check them out for themselves. The price of this stock is $4 today. You get .05 cents every month so it will take 80 months to make your money back in dividends. How many of those payments have you already received? Many people got in even lower... so you are looking at 6.7 years even shorter if you average down. Now, this is no bond but it looks like at this level the downward risk is a lot less than missing a pop. Everyone please check out the earnings and then lets all meet back here after the call and share some real discussion about this stock.

    Remember they issued a Preferred stock over a year ago ... I own it and I love it it pays .17 per month and climbed to over 26 at one point. It is callable in 2017 and I paid 18 for it. So when they call it 3 years from now I will receive...2.04 per year per share for at least another 3 years and get additional 7 when they call the damn thing. I am not currently reinvesting my dividends because it makes no sense for me to buy it at near 25. So, I take my dividends and use them to buy other stocks and with Scottrade they have a program that will let you reinvest dividends into most stocks for free. I have been buying ARR, CIM and TVIX so dividends buying stocks that pay dividends.

  • The plan for this play was never 5 or 6 dollars but way above. This instrument should have never fell to $3, I bot it then and I bot it when it was higher. We hit the bully square in the mouth this week and he may comeback strong or he could hit the floor. But, this week justifies why we bot this instrument it is for this reason a wild swing upward. But to compare this to earlier in the year is not a fair comparision. The Bully has never let us get this close to him before, everytime we tried to get up he would push us down. But, now with the Ebola outbreak and the poor handling of it by the Bully and friends... people are concern and with good reason. Walmart has failed. Google has failed. Netflicks has failed. There is plenty of reasons for things to go our way and there plenty of reasons for things to continue to go our way. I believe we have already suffered through the worst and yes they have diluted our gains even this week but the wave that is coming is too powerful for a staggering bully. I will share this with everyone and this only my opinion: If you cut the Dow,
    Nasdaq and S & P in half in my opinion they all would still be overpriced. Good luck my friends and stay thirsty.

    VIX peaking at 50. Any chances?

    You are correct I was using a chart when I decided to buy this stock. I detailed a chart with the Dow, Nasdaq, 500 and others along with TVIX. The trends showed gold in them Hills if the overall market fell. But, over the last year or so this stock has left the plantation. It has not moved with the Index and has fell at a much higher rate than it as climbed with similar movements. I am hoping it can run to around $17 within the next year or so and hope we can get to 10 by Christmas.

    You are out of your mind... you could cut the Indexs in half and they would still be over priced. It is coming and this is the first real signs of a correction. People are throwing parties over this but when the real correction hit it is going to end the pumping of stocks.

  • We are going up the overal market is coming down. Sure, we have been manipulated and sure the stock price shuld bet at 15 not 5 but sooner or later the ice will break becaues this political media market are taking real loses now... oh you did not know... are you not prepared?

  • legionfullmetal7 legionfullmetal7 Oct 16, 2014 6:45 PM Flag

    I do not think I know stock prices are too high. Way too high across the board, not only will they have to come down but by large margins. Listen friend didn't you know the market would have to come down anyway... are you not prepared?

  • These people can come on here and say whatever but this was a huge miss by both companies. The misses will impact the futures of the companies, these were lowered numbers and they still flat out missed. See people it is not about just Netflix or Google but this entire prop of an Economy we have. Please people for once ignore the sizzle and look at the steak.

    Thank you...

  • You do have to believe a little in yourself... and I have to tell myself this... I bot into this stock at around $6 and I thought I was getting a great deal and that was a year ago. I said there is no way this market can keep climbing but ... to my surprise it did. This is the first sign of any correction I have seen in this market in over 2 years. I was nervous this stock just kept going down, but I always knew as long as there was not a reverse split I would be ok. I averaged down and average cost around $5... if I have a shot any shot at all at 7, 8 or better... no let be just be frank... I really do believe this stock can leave 10 in the dust.

    It took a major hit this week and I own a lot of it... but I bought in at 19 and have been receiving .17 per share for the last year so I am not in panic mode yet. But, a lot of preferreds got his this week and I love it at the lower price. I hope to sell some TVIX and pick up more shares this new one pays .20 each month.

    You are so very right, but I believe we still have to see this as a long term play... pennies on the dollar. The overall market just looks way to weak.

  • I did not suffer a year with this #$%$ averaging down as it fell to get out witha 20% profit... I have suffered too long for that. The powers that be are doing their best to hold this thing down but they cannot. This market is setting up for a real collapse... something in that should have happened a long time ago. Just look at earnings tons of misses and this is on lower expectation. So for once in your life do not just judge the sizzle take a real look at the steak. In my opinion this is the most overrated market in our life time if it even gets close to real value we all will be sitting pretty. I am not saying there won't be valleys... I am saying this is not Macro it is Micro and the people on this board should believe in themselves. I have averaged down for over a year not and I want my reward. This was not tough Economics or Finance anyone could see the Markets were and are still out of line with reality. Now, we have had a good run and you should reward yourself and buy yourself something nice. But this is not the end or a hiccup this is the beginning.
