    Market Makers are worried

    The RSI closed at 80.35 today, which is very high!
    I sold out today at $12.24.
    I was happy to get 6.5% gain on my money since I bought in way back at end of August last year!
    The RSI is too high, but the stock could go a little higher next week-$13 tops.
    Anyways, it will also go lower than where I sold for sure in the coming weeks.
    May even go right back down to $10 eventually.
    It's over bought.
    shorts sellers are trapped though.
    Moving averages have not crossed in the one year chart yet.
    I'll just watch on sidelines now.
    There's better opportunities out there than staying in SWHC.
    No sentiment really, GL

    Some see possible $20 oil!

    In fact, I believe the furthest it can slide is Exxon's profit per barrel price of $40-45/barrel. If Exxon cannot make money, no one can! Sorry, no $20 oil.

    Back in 2007 before oil went to $147 / barrel, Goldman Socks called for $300 / barrel oil. "They" these analysts playing the game will overshoot on their calls both ways. Oil doesn't go to $20, hardly stays where it is for very long, and will be back to $100 in 1-2 years. LOL Oil is a commodity and goes up over time not down. I think ECA is a buy here at $13.00.

    YES, CBI is down 58% in less than 3 quarters, within THIS YEAR! April 4th peak to Dec. 15 low = 58+%!! And EPS has grown in the same period! When the baby is thrown out with the bath water, you BUY& Hold PERIOD.
    The only other time in this stocks history falling that much... that fast is in 2008, -65.5% for exact same time period from peak in Jan. 4th, 2008. And that was a entire market meltdown! The DJIA is at all time high's right now?

    PGN is a buy here, not a sell. That plan will never work out for you If you cannot hold PGN at least one year. I have 3000 shares of PGN for dividends, not reinvesting currently. If you sell PGN, DON'T buy into energy again! Buy tech stocks, AAPL, TSLA, BABA, BIDU, & bio tech, AMGN, CELG, GILD, BIIB. Those are all best of breed companies, and where most % of your money should be parked!
    "If"you buy into energy.... Buy Utilities: EIX, WEC, SO. cheap oil, nat gas & coal spells lower costs for utilities and that is why they are doing well! I own EIX, BABA, BIIB, & TSLA out of those mentioned. GL

    Is it crazy to BUY HNSN......

    Things can change overnight. A hedge fund can move in because it's cheap, and the price can pop $7-10 in a day. I saw that happen with PETM, earlier this year. If a good company is too cheap, someone can and will buy a 5% stake or more in a heart beat. I am not worried about CBI at this price. If it can get to $80 in less than a year, I'll be stoked.

    Overreaction, panic selling, tax loss selling, short selling, all sorts of selling.....Over selling.....
    How about some buying?
    How often does a 7 PE stock come around that has future EPS growth?
    Just booked the largest backlog in 12 month period that any other 12 months in the company 150+ year history?
    Well, you decide from here. I'm no pro broker, fund manager, but I'll make some money here for sure!
    GL, and BUY here

    NICE POST! Your attitude; although wonderful exemplary expression of what "HAS" happened to the "stock" until NOW; can and will bite you in the #$%$ going forward. The stock is "not" the company, and the company is "not" the stock. It's all about earnings, and backlog, and all I see is growth. Sorry, but your take is in the past, and my take will prevail from here. GL.....stay short.....it's all good; and I will win long-term! CBI sees $83.50 or more by next October, 2015.

    TYPO, the low on Dec. 8th, which was the yesterday I was talking about on Dec. 9th, was
    $2.64. DID anyone buy there? That seems the bottom for me?

    Well, I have been trading around in CBI pretty aggressively since OCt. 2014 because it is in a pretty aggressive downtrend!
    My current cost average is $42.56 on 100 shares, and my last purchase was 50 shares at $37.90 just to let you all know. I am not going to say CBI is at a bottom, but I will say, there is NO gap in the chart so far from coming off of a $37.37 LOW. I sold TLT at $126.44 on Monday and also bought the 50 shares of CBI, FEELING, the market was turning, and turning is a understatement in hindsight now! ROCKET past two days!
    CBI is a GREAT 10 year play from here folks! Buy aggressively here! I am buying another 100 shares only if CBI trades 5 points lower than $37.90! GL
    If not....I have 100 shares to run from here. Thanks to that GS downgrade to sell, mainly! BOOYAH!

    Sentiment: Hold

  • at $3.64. Did anyone buy or add?

    All you guys don't really knowor have a clue what TSLA is going to do! TSLA bounces off of $204 really hard! No one called that, and I'm pretty sure no one called it ever going to almost $300/share in the first place. GL
    I'm doing with TSLA just like I'm doing with BABA. I bought & I will hold.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • The long money is telling you, it goes to $132.00 at least into the new year. Why fight it? Go long TLT?
    11 month uptrend, and I do not think it is over.

    Do you think Mr. Buffett would sell at this level or buy? If you a short seller trader, why not be in the oil drilling service sector? CBI can trade along with Industrials as well as the oil patch. What this is, is classic analyst downgrade to "SELL" trapping margin traders on the long side, forced selling is going to happen ending the week. Were on day 7 after that "out of the blue" downgrade to "SELL" LOL. Then I'd bet there will be a squeeze, and CBI can bounce/rally. Everyone WANTED TO GET THE STOCK AT $43.69 that day and they missed it. Well, filling the gap on OCT. 16th is not that bad, and they made it happen. Never set stops, and trade on margin, but people still do! Buy & Hold this one now is a great bet going forward, even if it does go to $40.

    THERE IS BLOOD, and EVERYONE is Negative!!
    The market cap of the entire company at $ 40.00 is $4.33 billion.
    Trailing 12 months sales are $ 12.6 billion, and sales are GROWING, not SHRINKING.
    The market cap at $47.00 is ALREADY ridiculous!!!!!
    Forward PE of 8.
    Whatever!
    I just bought 150 shares. GL
