Well, that order never filled. Individual stocks are tough to live with around earnings time, of course I should have just "put it on a shelf". Maybe I should stick to ETF's.
At least I did not sell the shares in my Wife's acct. She dislikes excessive trading and has been beating me by a mile. Happy wife happy life right?
Congrats to longs that the ballls to hold, nice way to end the week.
Sold at 15.39, hope I can get back in close to that. Doubt it will happen tonight. Of course the one time I decide to sidestep earnings I get blown out.. If I held it would have gone down 20%
Burned too many times holding stocks like this through earnings. Todays report is solid and I am happy to get back in.
Exactly, down side far more compelling then upside this Summer IMO. Not looking for any big crashes, just a slow grind lower into late Summer. Market has been great and I am happy about that, but this is a good hedge if careful.
Most I ever paid for FSLR was right before this past earnings, and dumped entire position AH at 60.50. It was a big bet on earnings and I lost, but could have been much worse.
I still have a small position in another acct at 57.10 I rode up to mid 70's and now underwater, lowered CB slightly with most recent purchase. I'll add on weakness and stay the course, it will see mid 70's again.
I can totally relate to what you are saying though, buy and hold dangerous with individual stocks, especially through earnings with big moves like this the norm.
Yea, but it is real. A nice buying OP IMO, if I had settled funds I might make a move right here.
I still have a few shares here that are underwater, plenty of time though and not worried at all. I'll be adding next week I hope.
Well, it is what it is. I still like this co and still have a few (now underwater) shares in another acct that I do not trade.
I went pretty big on this earnings gamble and lost, fortunately got out 60.5x. Longer term I'm sure I will regret selling, this company has a lot going for it and an unjustified low valuation.
No I do not want the world to end, No I do not have a gloomy outlook on world economy.
Just a small hedge position , and I took some SPY off the table for the Summer.
See you in 4-8 weeks!
And Phisher, your juvenile BS waste of life dialogue will not be viewed as you are the first on ignore!
LoL, how about now? is it "practicable" yet. How do they get away with this? has anyone else done their part and filed an SEC complaint? It only takes like 10 minutes! Anyone who invested here did so based on nothing but lie's (which go far beyond the div scam).
Will they ever be held accountable? Maybe not!
