Good one Dave
It is probably 5% now but at least he has a lot of company in the Losers column in Aug
unaware & stubborn. Fat & lazy?
So is Einhorn, but that's same old, same old
Thanks. I hadn't looked at short interest. 23% (per yahoo) is a lot relative to PHM, DHI, etc.
Really, that just changed the question to
"Why are funds shorting KBH so much more aggressively than other builders?"
I have a list of 15 builders. Relative to the 50 DMA, KBH is the 12th weakest stock of the 15.
Anyone have a good idea why?
THere last Q wasn't that bad.
Are there new openings in weaker areas?
glwt beararn, the people on this board do nothing but parrot what they hear
"Kaaw Kaaw. All is well. The future is golden. Kaaw. Ackman is god. Management said so. Kaaw"
(note: a bunch of them seem to think this is a REIT!)
my GTC order hit much sooner than I expected so I bought 500 more sh @ $132.10
Are you spooked by the headlines on new home sales?
Meanwhile all the loud-mouth know-nothings around here have run away with their feet in their mouths as they lost money in a bull mkt.
Same as it ever was. They're always loudest at the top, invisible at the bottom, and then bragging about magically having bought at the bottom. We have a word for that & it wears a big red nose & long floppy shoes ...
oncoclown, thanks for showing what an ignorant clown you are. You're comparing the gains to somehting bought at the bottom of a bear mkt to those of a SHORT during a bull mkt. CLOWN nonsense in multiple ways.
Let's start with the fact that you didn't byuy GGP in 3/09.
Now move on to the fact that I undoubtedly bought more stocks in 3/09, 4/09 & 5/09 than you did. How do I know that? Because you're the type of clown who goes around talking about never selling stocks. You're the type of clown who doesn't sell stocks at the top so you never have any dry powder to buy at the bottom. I sold half of my stocks in 11/08 & put on a bunch of shorts the same time. So, I had a lot of dry powder in 3/09 thru 5/09 & bought a lot more stocks than you did. You're the type of clown who lost half your money in 12 months.
Now move on to the fact that while I was making 4% on HHC you were losing 4% in HHC.
Now move on to the fact that while I continued to make $$$ in a BULL mkt, you continued to lose $$ in HHC.
Now move on to the fact that you really don't know much about the company and are just envious of people who make real $$$ in this & other stocks.
ps: I just bought 200 sh of HHC @ $137. I'll buy more between here & $132 if it keeps going lower. You, you just continue to lose $$$$.
How in the world can you be so ignorant? Of course coal is the major place that mkt share moves back & forth, so, of course, coal was the core of my question. Well, DUH! Coal accounts for almost 2/3 of the question. Trucks count to, but I hesitate to bring that up b/c I know the parrots like you will just scoff that anyone would decide to ship by truck instead of rail. If you don't know anything, just #$%$, instead of proactively proving how ignorant you are.
I'm sure you go thru life being sloppy & wrong, but you should learn to not do so when investing. You greatly overstate the "monopoly" power of railroads in the US. You're just parroting something you heard a CEO say. Did his lips move? There are 2 major competitors east of the MS RIver / IL&IN border & another 2 west of those. For a significant # of city-pairs both east of that boundary, there are 2 choices for rail freight. Even if they're not on the same tracks, they'll both get it there for roughly the same price at roughly the same time. The same is true for a significant # of city-pairs both west of that boundary. There are even 3 options for a couple of pairs in the mid-west.
So, get a clue. They're usually not MONOPOLIES. They're usually DUOPOLIES.
What an ignorant question. Carloads will depend on when/where UNP decides it is better to compete than to lose mkt share, to both BNI & to trucks.
UNP is losing mkt sh in common geography. It is hard to believe BNI's customers are just doing so much better than UNP's are. Obviously, BNI has stolen some customers from UNP. Can anyone cite any reports as to
I sold multi-month calls on UNP 2x when it was near $120, but still, $120 is starting to seem like long ago & far away & not likely to return anytime soon given these anemic volumes.
