Congrats Brits...you've joined the likes of Greece. I hope you enjoy the crazy train.
I look for whatever gaps in the morning(dust, nugt, gdx, gc..etc..etc..)...to sell off as the day goes on. This is all a man-made sham. It's like being in the matrix where everything is already planned out by those running the show. You just don't know what those plans are yet because you are not in the loop.
A great hedge book and they feel the need to sell off non-core assets in a "buyers" market. Insiders disposing of shares at bankruptcy prices is also a little unnerving. Cracks starting to show. I wonder if management has been lying to us? Put the attorneys on alert.
I wouldn't get my hopes up to much on earnings.
I wouldn't be surprised to see them pull it down just to shake loose some cheap shares from short term traders.
I tend to agree. One would have to be somewhat naive to believe the Fed prior to their recent hawkish tone didn't already know that the job numbers were going to be weak. Typical knee jerk market reaction created to steal innocents money imho. Near record low unemployment and inflation trickling up very well could keep a rate hike on the table. If I were the Fed, I would hike in June just to remind the markets who is in charge of policy here. All this over one off the wall stat that has a history of being revised under the table at a later date is a bit much. I'm beginning to believe the Fed Bankers shooting off their rate hike prediction mouths are no better than analyst giving opinions on stocks they are long or short. When Greenspan talked...people listened. I'm not seeing that same respect here with Yellen.
Gee, do you think maybe it tanked from $260 to $24 on expectations of lowered guidance? I'm willing to bet the "lowered guidance" will still put fair value of VRX North of $60. VRX has over tanked imho.
Margin calls and more selling yet to come I would think. I hope others realize there are cheerleaders on this board who have been beating the "buy drum" for the last 2 years and CONN's has done nothing but go into the toilet.
No. I'm not a clown or a short. I'm referring to my landline phone and internet service. I've contacted the BBB with a complaint but only after I have put up with 2 years of lame excuses from the company on why my line is always down. The fact that they refuse to tell me where the local business office is so I can go in and talk to someone in person pretty much sums it up that they know they are ripping people off and don't want to own up to it. What kind of business with this mentality last for long. The only reason I'm still a customer is because they are the only provider in the service area in which I live. This company is a joke and as shareholders....you guys should be putting a fire under their #$%$.
I have had frequent phone and internet issues for the last two years and all I can get it is the run around and same old answer on trying to get it resolved. When talking to the support system rep I asked for the local office location so I could talk to someone in person and he refused to give me that information. What kind of company refuses to tell you where the local bosses work? You shareholders are being robbed.
Don't worry less. I own free and clear a 200 acre farm. Have a 401K. A hefty retirement pension from where I have worked for the last 30 years so far and of course social security on top of that. I have most of these things because of a book I read by William J O'neal about 25 years ago called "How to Make Money in Stocks". Inside the front cover of that book you will find the simplest and purest advice on how to become successful. Retirement for me is still a few years away.
run...I said I was "holding like Buffet"... not "buying like Buffet". CLMT owns the niche. They will do just fine imho once they absorb the recent boo boo's they have made.
Sorry for the late reply dlee but I look at my long term holdings once a week or so. I'm averaged in at $3.93 on CLMT. May I ask why you are concerned with how much I am losing on down days but not with how much I am making on up days? The answer is zero on both counts until you book it. I hope you realize that being negative towards others is the trademark of a bitter miserable loser.
