    Long Term Hold vs. Trading In&Out

    by bballgm Jan 16, 2015 6:49 PM

    Hello bballgm. Let me introduce myself by saying, Lighten up, Francis!

    "Trading shares" can be fun, as long as the risk is limited. If I take 1-2% of my shares in a particular stock and try to time the highs and lows, it gets you more engaged in the market. Why not? I think of it as shadow boxing.

    BTW, do you know the movie reference from the first line?

    Thank you, OBHFriend, but I think I relate better to the enlisted than I do to the brass.

    We did all right here in the end, didn't we?

    I wanted to make an official goodbye here on a Saturday morning. It seemed appropriate.

    Thinking of songs for this occasion has led me to places I would not take you. Let’s just say I watched The Sound of Music recently. There, now THAT’S stuck in your head!

    Today, it’s time to move on. Let’s have some charge-up music from the great Nilsson.

    /watch?v=4wgrzp1DCs4

    So, I’ve been thinking about other investments. There’s a lively discussion on the Group e-mail, with many very worthwhile ideas. I’ve been looking at charts and thinking about how to reconfigure my investments.

    I must be getting old. I’m thinking about dividend yields, and how I need to diversify. Does the oil downturn mean that transports will be a bargain? How about an oil services company? Not NOW, but maybe later. How do I feel about GE?

    Not nearly as excited as I was about Avanir. But there are other, fun opportunities out there. I just began nibbling at NVAX yesterday (after the news of coverage initiation, of course). But I like what I’m seeing there.

    But I digress. My purpose here is to thank EVERYONE here for the companionship you have provided over the years. I literally cannot list all the posters I’ll miss, for your humor, your insights, and often, your blunt honesty. This investment has been made infinitely more fun by this silly message board. And I thank you all.

    I hope your investment in Avanir makes your retirement that much more comfortable, oldavnr! We have done well with this investment, when all is said and done, but I say with a clear conscience that we EARNED it!

    It's been a true pleasure to share this ride with you and the others you mention. Nirv. I hope he is well. And I hope he held on to his shares!

    Hey, Hankster! I got my packet today. I've kind of gone through a couple stages in the aftermath of the announcement myself. At this point I'm ready to move on to new opportunities.

    We have a ton of family coming over Thursday, so we're in the throes of preparation. All great stuff, though. Looking forward to the holiday.

    I had my tv on CNBC after hours yesterday. There was the screaming man on mad money.

    He made a call. Said the biotech bull run might be about over.

    The guy has a lot of influence. If he is right, or if his minions turn his call into reality, we might have a great irony here. Here AVNR sits at $17, not to go down more than a few pennies. While the rest of the sector tanks? So that makes the guy...someone who ultimately ended up helping AVNR shareholders?

    How ironic.

    "A percent a day, that's all we ask".

    That was a fine motto, my friend. And in the end, I think we did about that well or more. Who'da thunk?

    All the best to you and yours, CarMan. Hope to shake your hand some day.

    I had never seen that! Thank you!!

    Sounded like the person that arranged the chorus was the same person who did The Wizard of Oz 9 years later.

    I'll get my daubers back up soon. Thanks for your concern.

    Season's Greetings from across the pond, Sir F!

    Thanks for the Party E thread. Most interesting. It really explains why certain stuff happened in hindsight. I just hope a "party F" and a "party G" show up in the next week. But it seems less likely.

    You are absolutely correct that we have made more than money here! Dealing with nemesis after nemesis, we have bonded through mutual PTSD. So many characters over the years, and so much sharing of insights and information. And, since we could only communicate through our writing, our own characters emerged. Like Razor Man said last week, I feel like I know some of the people here better than I know many of my neighbors.

    While I appreciate your thanks, we both know you have given as much or more than you have received. Your generosity of spirit has been inspiring through this campaign. I'm personally grateful you stumbled onto our American board. You have been a great gift to all of us here.

    Good day to you, Orange Man! First, great link. Liberace is always fair game!

    Second, that's quite a list of stocks. Are you saying you are in all of these? If so, will you be retiring soon? All seem to have made recent leaps on the chart.

    The music...I guess I'm a little melancholy (another Moody Blues tune) at the loss of this forum. And the loss of the familiar challenge of AVNR. Next week, one way or the other, I'll keep the achievement this investment has been in mind when I pick the music.

    "Hello I Must Be Going" is one of my favorite album titles of all time. But I don't know any specifics other than that title off the top of my head.

    SP

    Sentiment: Hold

  • Hello, I must be going.

    This will be short, as frankly there’s not much to discuss. To capture the mood, I thought of Watching and Waiting by the Moody Blues. I came across this surprisingly touching video:

    /watch?v=uFOWG48ICjQ

    So we watch and we wait. And think about other investment opportunities. There’s little else to do in the limbo of the bunker right now. Will there be a competing offer? If not, where shall we invest our money next?

    Yesterday I added to my SPPI right before the close. Otherwise, I’m looking mainly in biotechs. I think Frank mentioned INSM. I’ve been watching it, but it seems volatile. I’m looking at CNCE for the obvious AVNR connection. Pretty low volume there. Finally, IDRA has caught my eye, though it seems a long time from making money. Not sure if I’m ready to take that trudge again just yet.

    Outside of biotech, I’m thinking about the way oil prices have gone down in the last couple months (by the way--Yay!). One land rig company I have researched before is Helmerich and Payne (HP). It’s setting new 52 week lows daily, and looks like a falling knife. But I might want to watch it for when it starts to gain traction. Any other thoughts?

    I’ll close with a Christmas song, as it is the season, like it or not. I may have shared this before because it’s a favorite. I didn’t come across it until I was an adult, and maybe that’s why I like it so much.

    /watch?v=So33yWSG2kU

    Have a good weekend, everyone. Here’s hoping we get some whopping news next week.
