Start making YouTube Videos about FNMA and Twitter. Start voicing your opinion about the situation. This is no time to be crossing our fingers. Money is on the line! No matter what it is, "Something can be done about it" quote by LRH.
Times have been tough for a lot of us who lost value. It's not totally lost until you sell. It's time to start winning in other areas to get attention away from FNMA. We can all make money with something else by producing value. I got forced into holding FNMA long. Shoulda, coulda, woulda waited till it was where it's at now because it still makes the kind of moves that would have made me a killing with the kind of money I invested at $3.93 ($30k total!). Getting forced into long is no fun. WAITING drives you insane, especially with regards to money. So you have to start winning in other life areas or even by other small investments in order to keep your eye on the ball. GET OUT OF WAIT and into ACTION. Take attention off the loss of share value and put attention then action into something that can increase in value. Sometimes coming on this board can make shareholders feeling down on their luck really feel like #$%$. You have to step it up by increasing the knowledge and get ready for the next piece of news that will change things. Better yet, be a newsmaker by creating media that could affect the viewpoint about FNMA to the world. Out-create the media manipulators that are screwing with our money. Go and USE your YouTube account by becoming a Opinion Leader. If Psy can do it, so can you!!!
We are steps closer to socialism and communism because we voted Obama into office twice and much of his legislation is not prioritized towards Capitalism. It would be best to find ways to earn lots of money and make up for the losses in FNMA. Be a smart Capitalist.
Good summary of the MM's shorting "the hell out of it to scare people out then call MF, Slpha or CramerdaCloun Street Posse and get them to write a poignant article about how the Corker Bill isn't going to pass, it runs back up considerable and then they rinse and repeat."
It just takes a few Opinion Leaders to make it move up or down.
It would help to contact your senator too. Be an opinion leader. Write a catchy song about Fannie Mae or make a movie about the shareholders and put it up on YouTube. That would be a way to get noticed and make news too.
Are there any artist or YouTube Creators out there that happen to be shareholders? This could be a great kickstarter or crowdfunding project with the intention of helping FNMA common share investors.
That is true, except OnlineTradingAcademy will do real trades with students to show them in real-time. That's pretty exciting. I also like Sam Seiden's Supply Demand Theory. It's worth taking a quick look at in addition to all the other standard technical you find in most books and classes. That's why I recommended it. Also, Robert Kiyosaki's company has a great DVD and video series called KILLING THE SACRED COWS OF MONEY that totally helps in times like these, when anyone is down in the stock price due to inexperience.
It's never too late to get educated. You should always be striving to learn because life and education continue beyond college and high school. That's a fact. Trading can be like a game of art. It's like a technically skilled art game involving the value of companies and money. You've got to have not only your poker face on, you've got to be thinking like a poker face in order to slice some of those gains at the right time much of the time. You've got to be able to lose small amounts of money comfortably and you've got to be able to suck it up if you know something's never going back up. Like me, I just don't see FNMA not going back up again. Too many people became millionaires off this one the last month. Why wouldn't they come back for more? Good price. Fun play, especially when good news rises on the company's profits.
Yup, I'm holding. If I sold, it would only be an over $16k loss, I know. I can carry over the losses tax-wise into next year. But, I've got about $15k to raise in order to sell a family home and will use that money to raise capital for my company and for trading. I will also be using at least $5k-10k for trading education. It will be so worth it.
No, I'm not bashing or pumping, but I know we experienced a pump-and-dump game. It will happen again, it's only a matter of time. Although I do believe this company is performing quite well, it's just a shame that investors can get the dividends and that the government is taking them instead of giving Fannie Mae credit. It would also be awesome for all of us investors holding long if it went private instead of being broken up.
Hey, it's important to watch your stock. Put in your stops and put in your sell price on automatic so that not hearing the alarm or sleeping in doesn't mess you up!
Finally the voice of sanity. We need more folks like you on the boards. Fear is a retail trader's worse enemy because fear comes from novice traders who get manipulated by the financial media, which is sponsored by the big institutions.
To clarify what I meant about YOU PHRASES. Ever notice how people who use YOU PHRASES do so in order to control you, evaluate you or bring you down? Like you?
You always do that.
You're so stupid.
You can't think can you?
You are obtuse.
You are unstable.
You are crazy.
You are nuts.
You are off your rocker.
You can't do that.
You won't make it.
You will lose all your money.
You will NEVER see your $$$ again...
You see? You're just trying to make another person feel terrible because YOU ARE terrible. Go on, give me some dirt. Attack me. I am able to stare you down for hours, not flinching, in a chair two feet across from you, due to my unique communication training drill experiences. You need to learn how to give people value instead of stupid reactive feedback to bring down other people. If you can do that, you can finally be competent. Don't they teach you that in College anymore--competence?
You should stop using YOU PHRASES and promoting negativity. This is a game and there are winners as well as losers. He will see his money again, whether it's when the price comes back up to his buying point or when he earns it back through valuable products and services.
It's time to get educated. Try OnlineTradingAcademy, Stock Trading training offered by Robert Kiyosaki's Rich Dad company, Scientology Life Improvement Courses (to start winning way more in life and finances) and Dianetics Auditing (to get rid of the Reactive Mind and operate with an Analytical mindset). Most of all, get winning in some area of your life to get attention off this current loss. Just consider yourself a Long investor at this point with a very high potential of losing this money if the government liquidates and screws over the common stock investors. We have some more time, but according to recent article on MarketWatch, we should be going into CASH and holding that position until the stock market crashes, then start buying up the discounted stock of good companies who'll eventually go back up.
Read the article at MarketWatch by Paul D. Farrell called: Doomsday poll: 87% risk of stock crash by year-end
I've been as cranky as can be since the flash rise and crash of FannieMae last month. Really cranky. I already KNOW that unless institutional investors step in to play the game again, probably after the next quarterly report or after summer vacation in September or October, that those of us who overslept that morning or failed to get our sell orders through before the end crash of that morning, are pretty much screwed.
I say this because I bought nearly 30k of this stock at $3.90/share. The next morning, I didn't hear my alarm clock and over slept, having failed to put in a stop or a sell price. Super stupid, I know. I learned. So should you.
It should help to know that we all have available to us the power to create more money than we've lost if we produce a level of value in products, services, writings, or things that others are willing to pay for.
This stock will come back up when good news rises about it and when institutional buyers come back in. As you can see from the chart that's what happened and they made money off us retail buyers.
I hope so, if only for a minute, so that I can grab some more shares! If you don't want to play this game, GTF out! Go try NBG!

I agree! This is a game! Squeeze the shorties! I've got limit order in at $5.50 Good Till Canceled!

Consider it a learning lesson. Study Robert Kiyosaki's Rich Dad Poor Dad. Call up his company and order the Shooting the Sacred Cows of Money DVD. It will help you change your outlook on Money. Here is an exercise I learned in a course I once took: Get a bunch of dollar bills together with your friends and family, account for who contributes what and just throw them around like trash. Keep doing this until you get a new idea about money and what it really is. Some people cry, laugh, act giddy or silly. This one is great for kids too. It's lots of fun. I give my toddler about $100 in loose dollars to let him do whatever he wants with it. Some people act wild when they see a loose dollar on the floor because money is considered so rare. The best traders don't have a button on money any more. They know how to make more of it and don't sweat too much if they lose some.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Big time. That's why institutional investors are in and more will get in later.
