Value investors aren't what they used to be.
Trye long term buy and hold doesn't seem to exist in the world of managed money. Buffet is the one exception.
Klarman and his team obviously did a lot if work on thus one, and his position was very small in the context of his overall portfolio, so why sell out!?
Fact is he can only have been following trading rules, and lost his compass as an investor. He had held thst position a long time, lost a ton of money, so he bailed. He forgot his original thesis.
I guess the good thing girl klarman is he has always got a team generating good ideas so he Can put the money to work on another idea. doubt any of those ideas will pay off as well as a "buy and hold forever" on aveo though.
Just big funds adding to or decreasing their positions though, nothing special.
I'd rather see an investor taking a position that shows conviction.
Anyway, I guess it doesn't matter much. All anv needs to do is survive the gold bear market. if it can survive, long term investors who rode out the downturn will thrive in a big way.
I can't believe the kind of remarks you read on stocktwits. Stuff like: don't worry it will go back to 1.50. Obviously they're all day traders for whom holding a stock more than a week is inconceivable.
Doesn't matter if you bought anv at 90 cents or 8 dollars. If it survives you will make out like a bandit when gokd rebounds.
I think this answers your question:
SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/23/15 -- Theravance, Inc. (NASDAQ: THRX) ("Theravance") today announced that the company's Board of Directors has declared a $0.25 per share cash dividend to be paid on March 31, 2015 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on March 12, 2015.
At this point ice built the absolute mother of all short volatility positions. Adding little by little day after day.
I love coming to these msg boards and finding nothing but a ghost town. All the momentum players have been scared out.
A river full of gold. And no one left to pan it but me!
Plenty of people quietly own it, believe me, received it during the spinoff.
For the serious longterm investor stocks with dead message boards are the best ones to own.
You can see pretty easily which stocks are moved around by pure hype, and you'd have to be nuts to buy them unless you are gambling on short term power moves.
Here is a name you can buy and forget. Look at the price in five years and you'll have a huge smile on your face.
More likely earnings blowout leaked.
400% top line growth is absolutely phenomenonal.
Caused panic short covering and panic cost averaging by longs who had been waiting for an entrypoint and suddenly saw a stock that had been stagnant for so long getting away from them Very fast.
Wow. If.29% down deserves tht metaphor I can just imagine what you're going to say when the day (or year) comes when spy is actually 2%, if that day (or year) ever comes
As you can see all the big buys are coming in NOW, as the stock shoots up like a rocket.
At 11 no on wanted to touch it.
So goes the market.
No one bought at that price and no one thought it was safe. Most were afraid it would go down more.
Perfect example of "safe in hindsight" yahoo message board forecasting the past from the future.
Not sure what you're talking about. GSK bought in nov, no one else.
they paid 15.36 for that lot, but they buy thrx regularly on an investment program, regardless of price.
It will get to 35 on its own soon enough, just on its own steam.
Buyout will be for at least 50.
50 would be a joke for shareholders though. Given time this is a $100 stock
Lol. totally out of left field. Surrealism at its best.
I agree though about not trading xiv. Trying to time the market is a fools game.
Just buy and hold. Take what you save on commissions and buy a new house.
50+ by Eoy.
Sounds like all the day traders who use these msg boards have done a number on your head.
500 shares is just fine for a beginning investment. But for trading its a waste.
Like omeone else said imagine making 40,000. And then losing 40,000. But only posting your winning trades. And never telling anyone you went bankrupt soon after. Just disappear from the boards.
That's the life of a trader, son. Don't be fooled.
Buy back Monday and hold for 10 years.
Vanguard 9% stake
Franklin resources 7.7% stake
Anonymous yahoo message board poster (THe smart money) - short
When a yahoo message board short wants to know who he is betting against he looks at posts on yahoo message boards.
To reiterate: that's why Yahoo messageboard shorts love yahoo.
A winning strategy for sure
In any stock with a large short position, NEVER trust articles which attribute all of their "facts" to anonymous unnamed sources. Nothing that cannot be verified is legitimate news, especially in a stock where reckless shorts have so much to gain if a company goes bust and so much to lose if it recovers,
There is an article, however it is a very dubious and suspicious piece of reporting.nhave to question the ethics and interests of bloomberg in publishing it.
all the so-called news contained in the article is attributed to "unnamed anonymous" sources.
None of the purported facts were verified by anyone at ANV. Yet it was published anyway.
Definitely needs to be taken with a very large grain of salt.
Keep shorting. Don't cover until it hits 20. Don't worry after you're bankrupt all the longs on this board you failed to manipulate into selling will chip in to give you $5000 so you can open a new trading account.
