look at the gold - every investor/trader hates it - now gaining +45% YTD
oil is at the point that every investor/trader hates it - will kapow in deep green for 2016 & 2017
nothing goes up forever - nothing goes down forever = it's just the laws of physics baby
buy back its own stocks on a downward spiral channel is a dumb thing a company could do ... read advice below ...
=== If you think your stocks are doing poorly, check out the performance of some of the most sophisticated investors, the ones with more knowledge about what's going on inside businesses than anyone else: Companies that buy their own shares.
The companies losing money on these bets are down a collective $126 billion over the past three years, a decline of 15 percent.
Many corporations would have been better off investing that cash in an index fund instead of their own stock. The overall market rose 39 percent over the same period.
=== Tesla (TSLA) shares are rebounding after falling more than 9% yesterday, recording its worst daily loss in more than a year. Today’s gains come on the heels of Barclays auto analyst Brian Johnson saying he wouldn't rule out a near-term rebound in the stock price. Barclays is forecasting first-quarter Tesla vehicle production of 14,200 units, down from 17,400 in the previous quarter.
it never hurt to buy a stock at a rock bottom
akam at 39+ today is the lowest price in 3 years
the last time akam at this point was on january 8, 2013
okay that makes sense - the AH glitches
i still expect stock go down to retest the low $60 for days or weeks to come
this stock is called "recession-proof" because during recession unemployed people flock into the site to look for jobs, but when the economy is better everybody has a job, who else wants to go to the site to find job? Thus, no traffic, no advertising revenue, no profit = stock got whacked with -60% haircut
the best bet to play is to wait for stock to rebound then hop in for a quick ride +$10 or $20/share to pocket quick profit and runnnn = bad stock will keep going down and down for a long period of time
your hope for it to retest the $270 high maybe waiting forever and never come reality
take a loss and move on to other = use your big loss to claim a tax loss on your IRS form to offset capital gain
i think facebook will gobble up all the social media stocks at a discount down the road: lnkd, twtr, etc. They are profitable and plan to move into many new technology areas such as virtual reality, drones, etc. If you like what so called "social media" world, dump all other stocks and stash your cash into the behemoth facebook.
For me, i think the best way to play the market or to invest is via playing the indexes to move and prosper with the market as a whole. Individual stock can kill you with -50% or -60% hair cut in a blink of an eye, either from bad ER or FDA not approve certain drugs (for biotech stocks).
Lately ER from companies is not good, even good ER report, stocks still going down ...
the low of today is 100.12 but after hours for some reason stock popped up to 104-105 twice then dropped back down to 101 now? Any news AH?
go look at gpro, ddd, yelp, wday, etc. all of those would teach you a lesson not to chase stocks at the top
they will never recover to their highs ever again = good money is gone kaput
look like ya dont like this "garbage" on sale
i am watching it for cheap price days to come
hope all is well over the cme board?
