I would be HAPPY to see another chance @ less than 100... I started my position a few weeks back at ~95. Only purchased 1/3 however. I always 'intend' to keep stocks for a year and a day, so my time frame is much different from the 'option' mentality crowd. Because of some buyouts, I am sitting on a pile of cash that I would LIKE to redeploy. In the past, I always jumped too soon. This time I would like to get it right. In any case, I am off to Canada to wage battle with walleye and northern.
I shall return... maybe...
there is a fine line between being a contrarian, and just flat out WRONG. Luckily, the market KNOWS, and rewards or reprimands accordingly!
Skippy, are practicing using one of the virtual Interactive Brokerage accounts?
A poster who repeatedly uses 'xxx-turd' as their tag-line, gives the intellectual impression of a sixth grader. Since I am pretty sure you could not make a living off your market competencies, how would you feel about a potential employer reviewing your posted pieces of wisdom (see, now THAT is funny)??
Sorry, 'Clown' is the only thing that come to mind... and I am being kind.
EVERY single one of your posts (under THIS ID anyway), is a 'New Topic' !?!
I am not sure what it means, but I doubt it is not of (misguided?) design...
while I FULLY AGREE that the uptick rule NEVER SHOULD have been removed, shorting actually provides an important function to the markets... it is just frequently abused... but no worse than 'insider trading' ... whatever you consider that to be...
see, now I didn't even THINK about that... it kinda puts the whole "Gropenator" moniker in proper perspective, don't you think?... as long as we are dealing with the 'facts' and all.
(this is NOT an endorsement of Fox News or the GOP, just a observation that people seldom remember/learn from history - ;0)
actually it began under Kennedy, with the blooming expansion of social giveaways... He was also the one who lowered the top income tax rates...
I'm not going to lose any sleep over this....
ZTS operating Just FINE, with or without, Billy Boy...
I am willing to restart accumulating a bit higher than that, but I fully understand your position.
go start your weekend early...
when stuff like this happens on a Friday, it is a better than even chance that it will continue into the following week, unless a significant event occurs.
I think less than 100$ is an okay price, just not quite irresistible.
I began building my position a few weeks ago, but wasn't done.
Maybe I will still get my chance yet! ... just not today.
I lose NO SLEEP over this.
