Pain? If you mean pain as far as being under water on a few shares, that is not what I call pain. Let me give you a definition of pain. How about coming out of a marriage that went south and it wound up costing $750K, yes, I know all about what pain is. I'm sure there are some out here that probably suffered more pain than I. Stocks go up, stocks go down. Am I stuck on Microsoft for a bit, yes. Microsoft hasn't gone down to my exit point yet so I am holding what I bought right around $54, but If it makes you feel better to have a good chuckle at my expense, have at it. The profits I made off of Microsoft in November and December are still tucked away, haven't touched that,but just for you, I transferred another my last pile of cash outside of Fidelity, enough to buy a bit more than 2K shares at these prices. If Microsoft does head lower, which from all appearances it just might, will think about picking up more shares.
More like getting shares as cheap as possible prior to when Microsoft reports on January 28th. I find it odd that Microsoft hasn't released how it did coming out os the holiday season, nothing, nada, zilch.
The folks that got nominated and receive Oscars are the ones at the top of the game of make believe.
Delusion is thinking that everyone in America suffers under your definition of delusion. Delusion is believing that the style of how a message is delivered is more important than the substance of what is delivered. The only chronic illness that Americans have had to suffer is the lack of opportunity that were presented to them who they could select for their President. As far as names, names are branded to quality and higher standards of desirability. Given the choice where to stay, if I could afford to take off and stay for 2 weeks in a Trump Tower, don't think for a minute that I would settle for a Holiday Inn, Marriott, or a Hilton. Given the choice between wearing at Timex or a Rolex, dont think for a minute I would settle for a Timex. Given the choice of driving a Ferrari versus a Corvette, dont think for a minute that I would settle for a Corvette.
The news this evening also mentioned $1.5B that was paid to Iran under what was called "long standing financial disagreement between the US and Iran" at the same time the hostages were released. Gee, hostages AND money changed hands at the same time, oh yeah, that certainly sounds like superb negotiating expertise on the part of the President of the US.
I see that Walmart is having a sale on pup tents, sorry not in your area, WalMart is closing that store
Guess those positive affirmations that your psychologist told you to repeat in the mirror ain't working for you.
Then his 55M shares at the high of $134.54 would have been worth $7,399,700,000 and assuming he still has them today at the close would be worth $5,419,150,000, then his Apple shares would have dropped from the high $1,980,550,000. Do you think Icahn sold any?
Each day, on average there are approximately 30,000 children that die each day from preventable diseases. I don't see the Government rushing to save any of these children. The gun death statistics you are quoting are only 1% of 1% of the number of children that die each day that are not involved in gun violence. By end of today, there will be approximately 330,000 children that died that if they would have had the proper medical care would not have died. Save 330,000 children over this period of time or prevent 334 deaths, using your statistic.
The point flew over your head, average of $54/share on 6615 shares, then figure out what the current price is. For this one trade, it would appear to be significant . . on paper. But relative to everything I have, the loss of dollars across all my accounts is $1,029.95. Now an astute person, which you are not, would have asked what I was doing to leverage against any losses on paper for the Microsoft trade. I have an exit point that should the Microsoft trade go totally against me, that I bail, but I don't want to take the dollar loss, at this point, as part of my trading strategy is if I have to bail, its not about the loss on one position, but rather how do I mitigate losses across everything I trade. At this point, if I had to bail on MSFT, my loss across all of the dollars I have, my loss would amount to $1,029.95 for today, not a loss of $10,379, so roughly 10% of the amount of the loss from a dollar perspective is what I would be taking. . Even if I would have to take a loss on Microsoft like $50K, my loss from a dollar perspective is only $5K or 10%, Now go scratch your head and figure out how I am able to accomplish this.
There is nothing else to post, but I'll give you something to chuckle at my expense. I just checked my account balances across the 6 accounts I trade from @ 16:34 ET today (so says the time on my clock), my balances from all 6 accounts from the time of entering into MSFT on Wednesday (and yes I am a bit underwater on my Microsoft entry point this week and I hope you get a really good chuckle on that), since Wednesday, get this #$%$, on all stuff that I trade, my account balances across the 6 accounts in total, only down $1,029.95 since Wednesday across all 6 accounts. So have yourself a really good laugh.
I trade MSFT, but do watch how APPL is trading from time to time. Think the January 8, 2016 options expiring today has some effect.
I really dont give a rats ( * ) what you think or what you believe and frankly you are about as interesting as mildew.
Nice try, but you still dodge the question with your "fluff", now answer the question, did you make your 1 point this week Mr. Day Trader?
You aren't even in the same league as me, I've transferred over 2.2 points this week in profits, did you make your 1 point this week?

"I've posted many times I'm happy with making 1 point a week in MSFT. Don't laugh, there are 52 weeks in a year and just playing 1000 shares makes $52,000 a year. In fact I don't need to trade anything else. If a "DAYTRADER" can't pocket 1 point a week in MSFT he don't have any business trading stocks."
I am not in competition with you or anyone else, some folks have a short bias that works for them, some folks have a long bias that works for them. But just for, went back and looked at what I transferred for profits so far this week, Fidelity has posted a total of $2,256.56 transferred for profits that were completed this week with date stamps listed as 01/04 and 01/05, unless you are calendar challenged, that was for Monday and Tuesday of this week.
