Bigbear I ended up with 20 cent gain on NCV. Counting a very small loss on final sale today. It seems all my monthly traders are acting shy on the day before ExDay. I started selling on inter cycle daily highs and the ones I bought back on when the price dips all behaved poorly. So for the near future I put a limit sale order on each stock for what I want and end it for the cycle. If that don't work I look for a early sale at a profit. Also if the price don't drop enough after ExDay I skip the next cycle, I skipped ETV and ETB for that reason. Also iam trading lighter out of fear holding mucho cash. Also I seem to have a loser regurally that wipes out many small gains. What I saying is if I had something better to do, I would do it. Phil
Frigator, I understand !i was getting dizzy and Vertigo using my IPhone . I bought a 10" IPad and that solved the problem but it stays in a carry on bag when traveling. Let's us know how it works. I would rather carry in pocket than use belt holster. Phil
I learned my lesson not to use a VWAP Limit order when I want to sell all on weak market days. But it will come in handy on buys with multiple buy days. Most of my trades have 3-4 scheduled buy days. A VWAP Limit order might come in handy to move some shares mid cycle out of the MM line of sight. But I can't do it at the beach on my IPad. Phil
I think you did well selling AAPL I just can't see men with suites with cargo pockets or purses to carry there phone but of course iam not "cool or with it":) But I do like AAPL products I own and iam willing to pay more for them but I wish to tote it in comfort. Phil
Gay_in_atlanta, You best turn your dollar trolling Peach Tree St and leave KMP to those that know what it is. Not afraid of a 990-t and I have plenty of negative UBTI in the "pipelines". It's getting near time to buy , you best spend your time putting fear in the hearts if the widows and orphaned and shake out some more shares .
I have one fund iam trying to sell NCV with a WVAP Limit Order just to see how it works of if it works. I have no scheduled buys today and my traders are not dropping enough to buy out of schedule . I might bath the pups and say too he'll with it.
I disagree the price of KMP or any stock is controlled by the human emotions of investors as they balance fear and greed. With a merger in the works and profit for the taking the price of oil is only a factor to some.
Just about every stock I have owned in my life is higher now than when I owner it. Hind site is always 20-20 so the saying goes. Look to the future and the next trade.
Mary we heard you the first time. It's dropped from $99 to $93.51 on profit taking and lost merger luster. If KM needs Capital they will have a SPO on the high which is now.
You and Bob are the only ones talking about Litl Kevin. No one else seems to care.
Prickly, What do you mean " since the benefits are being taken from KMP and given to KMI" ? For the record I was a DELL holder and would have like more for it also, but did not get it.
Hwrbrickman , I see PSEC having a earning problem and not being able to cover the Dividend over a long period of time. I use to like FSC and PSEC but don't trust either but both are a buy on pullback from problems. TSLX is shiny new and has not had time to develop problems. Phil
RE:TSLX,I sold half of my position for a loss on the run up and waited for the big drop to buy it back. And I waited and I waited .........:) With my luck it will keep going up :) Phil
I think the price is falling because wise investors are locking in gain and the merger luster is wearing off. I don't care for Cramer at all.
Do you think a Preferred fund would behave differently than a Bond fund in a rising interest rate environment ? I think I would rather own short duration individual securities of either. There are usually good buys around the Hollidays with Tax selling and fund window dressing.
