yes. there are those of us who have to hold because it makes more since to hold then sell on a dip, and cost ourselves even more.
you nailed it. The largest upcoming competitor in airines is AAL......once they get their act fully together. DAL had a 5 year head start. They will enjoy the benefits of that. However, like with everything. what gos up must come down. same for down to up. AAL's prasm figures will clean themselves up once things smooth out.
how was it priced in with so much uncertainty surrounding it leading into the vote? am not being a smart-ass, am seriously asking. you think the higher ups knew? then why would there be a 10% drop in pps.
funny thing is i wanted to cut my position before earnings. figured there was no point due to ltcg acheivement for me on may 3rd (unless a HA situation happend, but that did not occur yet so didn't figure something like that for JBLU. i price in 10% moves either way beforehand just in case to see if i can stomach it when/if that happens. HA is beyond what i thought was possible for a move in airlines at current times in 1 day).
i do not follow them. i leave it on as backgrounf noise. i have noticed they do that game. never once bought a stock off their recommendations.
I see you like to bottom feed.i prefer to wait for something i like or swit on the sidelines. last year was all about he airlines, wiht a few tech's thrown in. Admittedly, with this current market conditions am trying to figure which way thsi year will go. not even trading stocks currently as i would normally do as the market has not made much sense to lately. my ranges have all been busted for the most part, so am waiting this market out. i like V and not much else right now. might go short on a few companies that are overpirced imo.
that's it carrs. you made me very happy. will track it also. hope you do very well.
btw. nobody is asking what to buy, people buy what they want anyway.
This is more like the cnbc thing, where they do trader of the year and keep track throughout the year. not even that serious among us. and those guys are all down so far lol. best one is only up 1.5 for 2015. the worst is down almost 10 already. but i don't keep track like that. i don't want to say we, because it was mostly me and bears asking. the rest of the board likely don't care. i remember you saying BAC before so that is my fault.
Also, will throw a pick your and everyone's way. use it or lose it, up to you. we have made a bunch of money on airlines and might want to look elsewhere. i have been lately, i even asked on here for any idea. a little diversification for whomever else wants it. Visa. yes, Visa. even after the pop today, am loving the 4-1 split upcoming and this stock will outperform. looking for upgrades soon on this news. low oil, more consumer spending and people love swiping their cards. currently at $259, would put it at $64.75, so we have an easier figure to compare post split. have others if people are interested, am not charging lol
to use a golf reference, we are all playing the long game. as long as oil cooperates, this stock will eek it's way up slowly but surely like it did last year. just will be longer than we originally thought. which is fine because that is how these stocks work. this isn't tesla or gopro with a new product. to boost shares with momentum. we have to get back into the streets good graces somehow. That will only be through good monthly reports and oil holding steady in a favorable area for us.
let me answer why we ask carrs. we ask because if you call the move before it happens and not after, it would give a person more credibility. It is all about perception. the same way you thought i did not hedge because i didn't post it. We would never have had that conversation earlier if i had posted it, well the same works for you.
Not saying you do it, but anyone can pull up a past chart and claim to own good performing stocks. If you list it in a post, which believe me nobody will follow anyway to buy shares of whatever stock you have. it is so when you speak in 6 months let's say, you can say i pointed this out back in January. People will listen then, because you said before on here and we have proof. You will have a following on here of admirers on here if you are right, of which i would be one. Maybe even get a new investor or 2.
smart people know that they need to learn from other smart people. so far the only holdings i can tell of yours is AAL and DAL, of which you get credit from me for being correct. Nobody is asking for the whole fund, just a pick or 2 so we know you are legit when we talk.
For example. i own HA. Why are people not killing me for recommending it before earnings? because i have been recommending it since 7 pps on here. at least that is what i would like to think :) so still am very much up but a 25% chop hurts no matter what. nobody is perfect. didn't see such a bad report coming. it is also maybe because i recommended AAPL into er.
however, i lost all cash. nothing on margin as you keep suggesting.
i knew what you meant. if market was having a good day AAL would be up. consider it a gift for next week when it goes back up a buck or 2 imo
i called this even before the cc. can't remember the guy's name, which makes this next part funnier. This guy is just trying to make a name for himself among his co-workers and make himself important.
mark does not play on margin. but when you short you are effectively borrowing the shares from the broker, which they charge for. my positions are all cash other than when i short.
only reason it is down is the market, might finish green on this news. if not, i see good things for next week. back to being patient.
which will get done as well. now is the time to going back to being patient and waiting for the market to catch up to us. worked for us last year.
that's better carrs. thats the right attitude. All the best to all the AAL holder's on here. that is the only way it should be. we debate each other out of love. a love of profits. that is the only thing we should be focused on.
All the best to everyone on here. lets make more money!
