YEAH. Am loving it. sold 50% AAPL and 33% FLY and increased PLOW holding 2 weeks ago. Paid off ROYALLY. Blew out the naysayer analysts. Did see Jim Cramer from TheStreet upgrade PLOW about 4 hours prior to earnings release. Don't like him but am giving him his due on this one.
Expect next Q to be huge too. Am going to ride PLOW and reap the dividends and avoid short term capital gains taxes.
A good holding and I will make PLOW a core investment for me.
Well, check PLOW out today. I love beating analysts. Can't help but crow on this one. Broke my diversification rule when I loaded up on that position last week. Stocks are a risky business and often times an out an out gamble. Nonetheless, an educated gamble without having the odds stacked against you, equates to nice payouts. The old risk vs. reward equation.
Going to buy a nice bottle of wine tonite.
Oh, I still hold FLY but as of 2 weeks ago, a much smaller position. Not complaining. FLY is also up since I trimmed.
P/E is horrible. No doubt. Was a speculative move based on personal info (not insider). Looks like the play turned out well and PLOW shooting up. I have gotten, and given, good info and leads on these message boards. Sometimes, when someone makes a claim and states how he came about that claim, it can be good. As much as I should do some profit taking (altho I hate short term capital gains taxes), I am letting it ride as the next quarter will also beat prior year. Great yield. Am anticipating analysts will adjust.
I must say, 4 hours prior to news coming out, TheStreet upped their rating from Hold to Buy. Jim Cramer....
Stevey boy. You need to look for me. That is something you can count on. That's my name? lol. ok. Call me Danny boy then.
You are mine now.
Yikes. That's a beating. I may be in for one myself come Monday. Need PLOW CC and earnings to beat analysts big time. Got a lot on it and pre announcement selling not fortifying my confidence. Don't think I will take the beating dsc took tho. TNK will soften any blow I do take. Been good for me at 17% capital gains. Yield not shabby either.
I posted the PLOW message. I had trimmed 33% of FLY and 50% of AAPL. PLOW earnings report next monday the 10th. I am banking on them easily beating analyst expecations. Only marginally happy I didn't liquidate FLY as Earnings report left me luke warm and I am simply going to hold the balance. We will see what Monday CC brings for PLOW. I am obviously betting on PLOW to outperform FLY PPS. Trading ahead of Monday's CC not making me feel too confident but, I am holding.
I broke 2 of my investment rules on that PLOW purchase. Exceeded my 12% holding and bought into a postion with an incredibly high P/E. Going on what I literally know vs. what the metrics and analysts predict.
We shall see.
Handle yourself? I bet you do. lol. Stick with Stevey altho there are laws about old women and underage boys. I agree tho, you two seem to have much in common which means very little in life. Go snap him up you old grizzly.
oh, now I see what drdisc and blackjack were talking about. lol. Vikkihater has a suitor. Too funny.
Stevey boy, have you no self respect? You are the type that she recruits. You must be just as desperate...
It was ugly but, I had to do what had to be. I don't think he will post much any more. If ever. Sorry. I know he meant a lot to Vikkihater the spinster troll. Going forward, I believe all the wintoats will be gone. Now, if only Vikkihater would follow that lead. Would be nice to have a civilized BP board. I've 22 outright positions and none of those boards are like this BP board. There are intelligent and relevant issues being discussed which have impact on investment decisions.
oh well, at least wintoat bit the dust. (I think, I hope)
YOU call BP phoney? lol. You are not an investor, you are a fake. You use the Yahoo Finance board as a tool to fill your empty god forsaken life. BP will defend herself in a court of law as well as with her competition. They've learned to be as defensive and aggressive in the courts as they are in the gulf and in the fields.
Oh, I must say, I love your attempts at romance on the Yahoo Finance message boards. How desperate. Let me share your post today with your "readers"...

Very nice answers. FYI, the path to my heart goes through the BP corporate criminal trial and story. I suggest you review posts on that board, and do your own research on their ecocide. If you agree with me on that - and I know you will - your rewards will exceed your wildest dreams.
Now get busy little man. I want to see you chime in with your thoughts on that forum (that should agree with mine). Some thumbs up would be good too.
Just cuz I am not interested in an old, big mouth, sleazy, hardup spinster desperately seeking males on a finance board? Haha. Give me a break you nasty ho.
wow. the market closed up 1.41% DJI and SPH down 3.33%. that is a 4.74% one day swing. no way does that dividend make up for that. no way. a company with this kind of yield should at least hold their own and SPH acted like a pig. On my short list.
just an fyi... I like to think I outperform the DJI and track accordingly. If I don't beat the average, I may as well be into more mutual funds. The NYSE ran 17% gain in 2013. a yield of 7.5% is nothing compared to that. nothing.
This holding held back my portfolio on a great day in the markets hence the name... pig.
are you kidding? a REIT (OAKS) at 13.27%, SPH at 8.26%, a BDC (MAIN Capital) at 5.69%, PLOW at 5.11% to name a few. I have positions in all of them and other than SPH, have seen nice appreciation to capital. I am glad I trimmed FLY by 33%. Will continue to sell into strength ahead of earnings report.
my cost basis is 45.57. The dividend barely makes up for the loss to capital making it dead money in my book. PPS down 1.4% today while DJI is up 1.34%. Making good yield on a REIT (OAKS of 13.27%), a BDC (MAIN Capital of 5.69%), PLOW of 5.11%, NSH of 7.11%, and a host of others including growth stocks such as FB which currently is at 41.15% gain to capital. My portfolio yields an avg of 4.05% including growth stocks. Needless to say, I am unhappy with SPH and it defies my logic. Why is this stock a laggard?
This position is under consideration for me. Not interested in breaking even.
