won't happen or if it does it'll be 2 months from now
why 3 thumbs down?? It'll go down again and then by end of year be double what it is now. I just want a chance to buy 5000 shares at 4.00 rather than 3500 at 6.00 - big difference in my overall return.
my target is 17 by the middle of 2017 if not sooner. If I buy 5K shares today that's good enough for me.
I wish I knew. Still like ETE down so low. But dreams of making a quick 50K in 2016 doesn't mean it'll happen
if that's what it comes to?
you should work for ete!! better to have you on their side than against. hope you're right
sucks I didn't buy 2000 at 4.00 like I wanted to. When the vote on the deal shakes out you think it'll send us down or up? i'm thinking up so I might have to be happy with my 1500 shares at 7
seems to me, if you really believe it's going up, 8 is a great price. That being said, I was asking the same thing you are when it was at 7 and I was hoping for it to go back to 5. At this point, I'd just buy some and not worry too much. Sounds like if it pulled back to 6.50 you'd buy a whole lot more but remember, buying too much of any one stock is always risky so maybe just buy a sweet spot amount at 8 and take the ride up. I have 3000 at this point. I'm happy with that. If I HAD more cash I could see myself buying 5000 or 7000 but then what? You just never know so I'm learning to be happy with my 3000 shares and feel like it's less of a worry. Good luck to all.
stops don't always mean much though if you wake up to bad news. Better than nothing, of course.
Question Not Totally. So let's say he sells it now and buys ETE in a regular account tomorrow. It goes up to 20.00 before the end of this year and he decides to sell then and take his profits... won't he still have to pay taxes on his gains under short term gain rules unless he has carryover losses to offset them? Seems to me, taxes are unavoidable when you're making a profit? If we think ETE is going where we think it is going which is up, it might be better to simply hold it for a few years. Less taxes all around? Me, I have carry over losses that protect me quite nicely (sadly) so I can sell whenever I want to and not have to worry too much unless the profits were insane, which they won't be.
I don't get it and I was Admin on a large estate with stocks of all kinds. I guess I forgot it all by now.. I know I had to do a massive spread sheet with cost basis for the stocks (what a hunt that was trying to find purchase dates on actual stock certificates stocks not an electronic account and then sale dates which had to be averaged cause the person died on a Saturday (Friday's close and Monday's close) but I don't remember MLP's causing a problem. it was years ago though so ... So in a regular account if I purchased my 3K shares around 7 and would sell at 20 (let's say) would I have recaptured losses or just st gains?
