    Profit-Taking and De-Risking

    by johnsonjoel1 12 hours ago

    Are you trying to 'talk the stock down' because you already sold? What did you expect it to do today -- rocket up another 5% like yesterday? In 3 trading days the stock had an upward move of 8%, and a .06 decline today represents the stock looking " very weak again" according to you.
    If you knew anything about market dynamics you would know that the climactic sell off and reversal occurred 7/23 on massive volume. In other words, everybody who wanted out is out.
    Also, I love the disingenuous comment " I'm not suggesting anyone buy, sell, or hold, but only that people de-risk. This statement after saying that a flood of investors will sell after waiting for the stock to go ex-div creating a huge downhill slide. There is NO advantage to waiting for ex-div as the stock price adjusts downward to reflect the div payment amount at the open of trading on ex-div day.
    You might try to be me more forthright in your posting intent ... instead of posting classic oxymoron commentary.

    "In the event that, despite the coalition's efforts, Measure P were to pass, PCEC believes that it will undoubtedly be subject to numerous legal challenges. PCEC has informed the Trustee that several prominent law firms have already issued letters to the County stating that Measure P has serious legal deficiencies including state law preemption, and that counsel have asserted that if Measure P is adopted, it would be a taking of mineral rights and other property interests and as a result the County will be subject to claims for compensation under the United States and California Constitutions. In addition, Measure P has certain exemptions for existing projects which PCEC believes may have applicability to PCEC’s Santa Barbara production."

    The last sentence is all that matters here. The drafters of Measure P were clever enough to not 'grandfather' in existing projects as they know that LEGALLY, attempting to do that would be a non-starter.

    I'm NOT Buying It at $6.70 ~

    My indicators say an entry at the 6.70 level (on close) with a tight stop at 6.57 is appropriate.
    I do not wish to wait for some phantom after-the-fact indicator to be triggered as you say it will.
    As you know (or should know) catman, there is no "magic " number in trading -- only probabilistic
    entry points to maximize potential gains while minimizing potential losses.
    With the MACD bottoming and the RSI ascending an entry at 6.70 from a technical perspective is
    appropriate. Unlike you, at least I am willing to identify entry and exit points before-the-fact.
    If you are not willing to do this, or quantify your reasoning, you are really nothing more than a technician's
    version of a charlatan.

    Sentiment: Buy

    Closing target of 6.70 (or above) has been met.

    Buy level remains at 6.70 on close (or above)

    I only post when a specific buy or sell level remains operative. Market dynamics dictate buy/sell, entry/exit points as you well know.

  • Recent overbought levels continue to moderate. Traders should look for an entry at the 6.70 price only if the close occurs at that level or (slightly) above. Keep a tight stop at 6.57.
    At this level (6.70), both the RSI and MACD will bottom/turn upward signaling a probable eventual retest of the 52 week high earlier this month.
    Long term investors should ignore this or look to add shares for the intermediate term.
    G/L to all ... from a non-egoistic technical trader.

    Sentiment: Hold

    You did not read what I said. IF the stock closes AT OR ABOVE 6.70 the downtrend has been mitigated to the extent that an entry at that price is warranted -- with an appropriate stop at 6.57.
    The key is to know when to make a calculated entry as the stock is basing at technical support after a pullback.
    If you would take the time to stop patting yourself on the back, you might learn something.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • Look for a close at or above 6.70 on Monday, with your entry point at 6.70 or (slightly higher) on the close.
    Place your stop at 6.57 for this entry. If no close above 6.70 on Monday, wait ... until technical damage done by recent downtrend improves.
    This is what "cats" should be advising you to do ... instead of playing games and telling you later.
    Long term holders can ignore this short term trading strategy ... short term traders must look for scaled entry and exit levels as they present themselves. G/L to all.

    Sentiment: Hold
