Exactly. Try to time the market or a stock and you can get screwed. It can work in your favor too but I am not into trading day in and day out. I buy stocks that have a longer future and willing to wait and collect divys until that time. This is just one of several stocks, funds and etfs for me
I understand that it will go down. Not worried. To each his own - investor or trader. I don't go in and out of stocks and try to time things like I used to. Some trades were good, some weren't. I've been doing better, and less stressed buying only stocks that I believe are positive long term.
Of my stocks - most of these are purchases at lows this year, some are 2-5 years old: DIS, CHK, SDRL, OPK, XOM, BP, WFC, GE, AAPL, MSFT,CSCO, VEOY, LNG, LEG,....
I am holding long term. I already have a 32% gain. If it drops below $12 for some reason, I would just buy more. I believe it will go over $20 some day.
I got in at $76.-, I think getting in now and going Long would serve you well. Possible you'll see some drops so maybe buy half now and wait on the other half? Good luck
I thought that article came out a couple months ago. I am guessing we won't see the results of this until next year. Hope it moves higher. Long.
In at $22.50 so holding to see where this can go once the facilities are built. Already took profits in the upper $70s for a majority of my shares. The rest....Long.
Just glad I got in at $10.08. :) Also got in on BP, XOM and CHK at lows. All are looking good and will go way up at some point. I am patient and Long.
Off topic. This is "Microsoft Corporation Message Board". Go spew political #$%$ somewhere else.. Flag-Ignore
He was just taking some profit. Why not? I bought in the low $20s and took some off the table at $78. I still hold some for the eventual ride up.
You can easily ignore if you mouse to the right of the post time. When "Flag" appears, click and click on "Ignore user". You never see any posts by them again.
I have A LOT on ignore and their names show greyed-out with no post. :)
Meh. I am sitting back and still holding some of the shares I bought at $23 though I sold 80% of them at a very nice profit low $80s some time back. It will go up into the $80s again.
Maybe they were just trying to bring the stock way down, farther than it went, so they could #$%$ it up at a huge discount. All those analysts do it. We're just along for the ride.
Glad I got in and hope it can keep its gains today. Long.
