If you are in individual stocks, one rule is never hold through earnings. Never!
I forgot about earnings yesterday with another co (SWIR) and got crushed today.
He's been to busy updating his resume, then will sit back and let perspective employers seek him out on LNKD. Good strategy no?
AMEN! And as for the HFT BS, place a minimum hold time and small SEC fee on each trade. So dam simple.
Same thing happened to me on another board too. Same type of losers bickering back and forth over ID's. What a waste of life LoL, stop making a mess out of this msg board loser!
Did not pay attention to ER date, would have dumped prior to. Costly mistake!
Down 31%, at this point I'll hold for the long haul. I still like this co, but more concerned about competition now.
Its heading up, eventually. This is not the place to be for the long term ride though. Buying quality oil stocks right here will reward those with patience.
Many examples of this: GPRO, DDD, TWTR and many more.
LNKD was extremely overvalued though, still is....
Best days are behind us.
Of course not, but there are a lot of dumb people clinging to these high flyers. They'll learn eventually... Maybe....
So true, learned this the hard way. I am down 30% and holding, not adding here. My original shares/CB is all I care to expose to this co. It is a good time to initiate a position here though.
