AH" NSH & NS got spanked last 2 days. Maybe the new CEO is not getting the confidence from investors.
You still holding? I got one load left over.
Galaxie there is a saying that even a blind squirrel gets a nut time to time. This time I got one. Now the real challenge is not to give it back. Gd lk Pole
B4 I sold most of my shares short of 27 and dumped the remaining for 28 yesterday. I have to agree with D" . I had held from below 20.50 for most of my shares as I bought big when NSH dropped to the 19 level. I would not count out a higher price from here but I am betting I may be able to pick those same sold shares up again cheaper. I took over 50k profit on my sells, I suppose the stock has to pay for profit takers, NSH came up to fast as D" said. I traded all shares in my IRA so I won't have that tax head ache. Gd lk Pole
I decided to take half of VLO off the table for now. If they take it down again It will bode well for me then. I think we will see more volatility for the rest of the month. imo Pole
On VLO I have to think that keystone pipeline approval is just around the corner. The three method used to move oil across the U.S. rail , train and pipeline. Pipeline wins hands down as the safest and most cost effective. I think we will see something positive on this sooner then later. I am buying pullbacks on VLO. HFC may be heading to the wood shed for now. If I got it right VLO will explode to the up-side. Then $ 50's will be reality. Back to quiet mode. Pole
P_F there is so much hype for and against bull/bear direction. The wildcard in all of this is local and non-local political theater. I think near term (3 months) the market will do only as well as the political management dictates. Washington scandals are all to frequent and the hate and fear between party partisan will not clear anytime soon. 2014 elections are going to see a ramping up of that discourse. The best investment plan is stay invested over time however that just is not the case today. We have to take our profits when we can. Always keep enough in the market so we benefit from price movement but not get slaughter by volatility. Cash is still king and dry powerder is a must to take advantage of fear mongering swoons when you have opportunity to spot them. I see the fear index moving high.
I think VLO will trade sideways on Monday. Then on Tuesday depending on the numbers and forward guidance we may shoot up a few bucks or slide back down to fill all the most recent gaps. I bought a truck load of NSH below 20.25 per share average and unloaded half of my trade on Friday to secure some profit. I do think that NSH shall go higher but a bird in the hand is better then two in the bush for now and as it goes don't be a pig. Gd lk Pole
I think we stay plus or minus small change near 39. So its 39 as I see it.. This area seems to have some support. Pole
That's a 10 four. I have a bag I acquired for today's day trade on that assumption. If I am not around I have a sell in just in case it floats up a half buck. Pole
Ah" If you did not sell at the high I say hold. I am in a holding pattern and I am playing the swing as we go up, VLO going to 40. You can reconsider then @ 40. imo Pole
Ah, I am holding core bags and continue to average down. I took yesterday's buy to the market today and waiting for another entry. We will get there, back into the forties sooner then later. Pole
Chevy I communicate by email with some of the older vapers. I don't like the new BB and I really loathe those who sew nothing but negative chaos. I am not posting as I have no tolerance of the child play. I expect sooner or later they will burn themselves out. I am still long VLO w/gray beard bag and continue to harvest acorns along the way. Good luck to all the Vapers. Pole
