Kel, I live near the Lowes home office and have worked with both selling them transportation services. HD is more of a discount operation catering to builders and contractors. I see HD having a advantage in a down economy with poor selection and low prices. Lowes is more upscale with a nicer selection and higher prices. I liked to work with Lowes and do my shopping there. Lowes has a big advantage in a recovering economy. Phil
Kel, I pulled out in April and now remuddeling my house with my 2014 gains. I put all in low interest CD,s except for house money and and $25k to buy some Calls if I want. Presently enjoying being out. The CD mature in late July will look at it again then. There nothing i want to bet on at this time, including short positions. Good luck and be careful.Phil
PSEC hit $9.17 this morning and will probably hit lower. Should be a good buy at tax sell off time in December. Might buy some soon in the 8ths and I might not.
vogue1254, Please tell us why you are what someone does or does not do . There are numerous winning strategies, none require posting BS on a MB .
I come from the school that checks the historical prices to discover the cycle low. For selling Puts and buying shares about 30-33 trading days to probable Ex. To buy Calls around 18 trading days to Ex. Kinder Morgan is a great company with great management, but the stock us beaten down.
Mr. Truth please check historical prices for the RO period each year before declaring a "strong buy". Please note how long it takes for PPS to turn positive . Check it out and make up your own mind .
My preferred strategy with LINE and most others is to take advantage of big movements . On pullbacks sell Puts and buy Calls. On highs but Puts as a shorting action. Now sitting out of the market.
I real investor that thought your scienario would happen would sit back and take advantage quietly. A loud mouth short posts BS constantly wishing.
Simple Liberals regardless of state of Matrimony worship Stewart and Colbert .
Kel, The Windows 7 Desk Top I ordered from the HP shop works like a charm with my old monitor and printer plus you can upgrade components . Good luck to all and trade carefully. Phil
Kinder Morgan is doing well, they don't control PPS. The PPS is down because that where the market put it. I also seem to be having a good year :)
A short term trading position would work well is a tax deferred retirement account. A long term hold would be better in a taxable account in order to defer income tax on Distribution and have the ability to take tax loss on sales.
Those that sell early and those that hold will do well. Those that wait for it to bottom before selling will lose. I personally skipped this round.
