Samsung has gone downhill. they used to make the best tv's, appliances, phones... now it's all #$%$ that breaks.
Very true. I still use my S3. it's old, slow, and the camera sucks... but it does everything i need it to and i got it used for $50. i find it absurd to pay $700 for a phone. Maybe i'll grab an s7 when it goes on sale for 199.
apple never did it for me... to each their own. decent device, but i agree... the upgrade rate is slowing down now mostly due to no more contracts.
true that. still down 80% after this rally. I only hold a few shares... wasn't worth the transaction fee to sell. lol
in-memory systems are gaining steam every day. They need to get onboard soon or will be left behind.
i hold no positions on any of these... came in after seeing the 28% drop.
Volitility is how money is made.
Ride this down, accumulate, drip, accumlate... and so long as it doesn't get called in, it will be profitable in the long term. 5 years, it's 100% paid for in dividends if re-invested. i see things being rocky for the next few years. But in time, it will shake out. by 2040s when this comes due, i think it will be a higher price, similar % payout, and i'll have a TON more shares in the mix at these cheaper prices.
This stock was already worthless. What's half of worthless? lol 99% of value since i bought gone. i haven't sold it because it's not even worth the trade fees at this point. let it rot.
lol, solar panels didn't add 90k value to your home. in fact, most realtor's will consider it a liability if you go to sell. "ugly, don't want to maintain it, contracts if leased" etc...
I've been a bag holder on this guy for too long. As much as this makes me happy, i'm really ready to get out too... i'll ride it for a little while but i'm not holding it for much longer. Cheap oil is a force to reckon with
Clearly this is in BSP's best interest. Not ours.
I'm torn. current management sucks. both offers, one of which isn't even being considered, isn't what I would prefer to see happen.
I'm hanging in for the ride, but I already dumped 3/4 of my position over the past 6 months. I took a loss on it, but I put it elsewhere where it's actually able to move up and recover some.
the whole market is brutal today, but still, RAD is leading on my pain factor today, that's for sure. Should've sold at 9. i debated it for a few days.... oh well, holding on for the next few years to recover i guess.
I'm not sure I'm a captain... I'm more like a stow-away who snuck into steerage :D I'm along for the ride... I put money in this high-risk vehicle knowing it was high-risk. I already wrote it off in my mind as a potential total loss. I'm only down a handful of percent after factoring in all the div's i've collected in the past few years. I don't think I want to pick up more right now, but that's only because i'm already exposed in the greater mREIT sector larger than most would consider sane (I'm in about 25% of my portfolio across multiple holdings).
I still think there's money to be made here in the long term. the market in it's entirety is going through some hurdles right now. I don't see interest rates moving to anything significant for a long time. Our global economy isn't working. I think the whole world is getting it finally. But it will get worse before it gets better.
If i was 55, i'd be worried about the next 10 years....
But I'm not, i'm 35. So i think I have time to continue to acquire good companies and ride it out so when the market does rally up again, i'll have a large pool in which to make a splash.
The whole market is a bloodbath today. down 5-6% on half my holdings. So, that said, i wouldn't sell a thing today. it's not how money is made... selling at lows is how you lose. i'm here for 15 years or, call in. whatever comes first.
It's typical that it happens the day before payout... get less shares. same thing happened last month. maybe it's just a coincidence.
