    It is all just talk to get elected. Nothing will change…I have been around a long time, and heard it all…People get silly during election years. Every politician has a price and will be bought…
    I prefer to focus on the fundamentals and growth prospects of firms I buy. I like BMY

    The market over reacts both ways. Currently, the market has way over reacted to the possibility that a certain regime may attack big pharma (according to rhetoric) and selling everything in sight. This is providing a buy opportunity. Buying BMY under $60 was a steal...

    I guess Wall Street does not like the idea of VZ buying Yahoo?

    52 week Low

    RPM seems really oversold at these levels, and should get a bounce from short covering soon? It can always become more oversold though...

    Does anyone post about BMY the stock? Or, are you all too busy spreading political opinions?
    BMY forward growth expectations, and pipeline are impressive. They continue to spend in R&D and develop new drugs. Some see their PE as risky. I see it as an opportunity….

    Yeah, I own BMY too. I am increasing exposure to water stocks and utilities as well. In regards to RPM...As the price comes down, the yield rises, and the PE shrinks. Bring it on down...

    RPM is trading at $38 today, and I consider that a good buy. However, it looks like it will become even cheaper in the subsequent sessions as the market is just selling everything these days.

    Flint, Michigan is just the "tip of the iceberg" according to activist Erin Brockovich…

    Erin Brockovich appeared on Real Time With Bill Maher Friday to discuss the water crisis in Flint and how what's happening in the Michigan will soon be affecting cities nationwide. "I can't keep up with where the Flints are happening," Brockovich warned. "They're from Indiana, Ohio, Texas, Florida, Pennsylvania – 16 cities reporting – California, Alaska, Virginia, New York, Navajo nation… it's all over."

    She went on to explain how ammonia in the water is causing miscarriages and "brain-eating amoeba." She sounded well-versed on the topic. Needless to say, I am increasing my exposure to water stocks.

    What Happened?

    It looks like a Flint, Michigan water crisis pump and dump. The stock is leveling off.
    It was strange to see a utility soaring to new daily highs like AWR was. I am more comfortable with it trading between $40-$44

  • qofaslave69 by qofaslave69 Feb 4, 2016 2:34 PM Flag

    Perhaps afraid of regime change, and loss of pricing power?
    There will be an opportunity at some point. I am not sure we are there yet.
    It seems like under $60 is a decent price for BMY...

    Michael Burry was played by Christian Bale, and he made a killing shorting the housing market through crecit default swaps.
    Mr. Burry only owns water stocks now.
    See what is happening in Flint, Michigan and water stocks are a good bet...

    I went away for a few days only to check the stock market on the last day of January to find AWR trading at $45.40! What happened? The move came in huge volume too.
    There is likely to be some profit-taking soon?
    The investment in AWR is reaping gains far greater than I expected. Will it continue?

    If you are a trader, the price of RPM under $40 is a steal. You will not need to hold it very long to make money on the trade. Today is the 25th so I bought my monthly allotment. Any price under $40 is a bargain...

    Very Disappointing

    I buy RPM stock on a monthly basis as I use the shareowner online service. If you are a trader, then this selloff is brutal for longs. As a long term investor, I embrace lower prices, as I get more shares each time I make a purchase.

    As a previous poster mentioned, RPM was over valued at $50, and has come back to reasonable valuation around $40. However, the markets have been artificially inflated with QE and low rates. as the fed lets the air out of the balloon slowly we can expect the pendulum to swing way too much to the negative side, and this will provide opportunities going forward.

    I will continue to buy for the next 10 years...

    2016 looks like it may be a weak one for the stock market? Regardless, I will continue to buy stocks, and AWR is one that I am looking to add. This stock is showing strength, and has room for growth. I am patient and will wait until it drops down to $36-$38 area. I would be happy if it traded between $36 and $45 in 2016.

    I saw the film, "The Big Short" this weekend. The master investor, Michael Burry, made a killing it being short the housing market prior to 2008. The only stocks he currently own are water stocks. He is a wise investor, and sees things others do not.

    As an investor who buys shares twice per month, and will not cash out for many years, I do not care about current stock price.
    I am more interested in how management navigates treacherous times. RPM showed 8% growth in a difficult economic environment. That is a display of good leadership.
    I hope the stock goes lower so that I can add more share.
    The entire market looks like it wants to correct. I embrace it, and would like to buy RPM under $30!
    My kids will eventually get this stock anyway...
