  • Penney's figures for last quarter appeared strong when measured against most retailer results.. Same store sales rose 6.2%, compared to over a year of same-store sales losses of over 20%. What's important is that JCP is showing its progress. Stock was punished and killed more than its worth during Ackman's time on board. What investors need to focus now is as long as JCP is making its progress not profit immediately. Less loss, good leadership and inventory support and control. I actually like the current CEO. He shows good leadership by cutting cost, shape up the stores' image, re establishing strong relationship and the support from the vendors and himself even spent a million dollars of his own to buy in JCP stock for nearly $9 dollars a share. The street can be pretty evil when there is a saying "Kick it when it is down" especially when there is greed and big money involved. Whoever have not covered JCP big short position yet are pretty upset to miss covering at the $7 dollars level and are trying to squeeze more blood out of it. I have learned over my years of experiences in investing, if the street wants the stock to go up, they can spin bad stories into victory and good stories into failure. AMZN has lost money for over the last 3 years, yet the stock advanced from $279 back in 2010 summer to all the way nearly $400. Its continuous missing the expectation, finally the reality kicked in this time. JCP needs to continue focusing on building its better business and pays no attention to the articles produce by the Shorts. Investors who believe in and invested in JCP right now are not expecting the company to fly, but do expect the company to show progress and its continuous strong leadership. The earning next week will show losses which is expected, but I do expect improved revenue and profit margin. Be patient and keep strong. There are jealousy and bitterness from the shorts right now because they missed covering at $7. Don't give them the chance.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Be long and strong. We will hit $8 again.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • I started covering JCP in late 2012 at low $18 for 30,000 shares. Sold nearly $23. I re entered at low $12 and low $11, $10, $9 and doubled down at low $7. I own officially 90,000 shares at the average cost of $10.35. I have many opportunities to sell JCP with profit last quarter and again this quarter, but I hold every single share of it because I firmly believe that JCP will be over $27 in 2015. Another fantastic successful story like UAL and Micron that were once big under dogs and were badly beat up by the street and the analysts. Today both companies have not only prevailed, but have shown and delivered a huge positive success to the street. Since then, the street changed its mind and have covered nothing, but good stories about them. I urge all the valued and smart investors to hold on tight to their shares and ride JCP into 2015. You will not be disappointed. Be strong. The current CEO has shown a brilliant leadership and management. He put words into his mouth that he bought a million dollars worth of JCP stock with his own money cost to $9 and CITI purchased all Ackman's shares at $10.15. JCP will shine in 2015 and this is only the great beginning of the JCP.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • With the upcoming earning, the stock shall reach $9!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • They let their head and emotion take control over the sell bottom instead of their heart. This is way oversold.

    I have zero position in EBAY, but only trying to share information with all the investors on this board. Before of this investment because I see it to go sour and down below $50 as the target price.

    Sentiment: Sell

  • He comes from a very wealthy family that his father is a VC. So what he has some expensive toys. He did not use a penny of investors money for his toys. In fact, his father owns a million shares of GoPro. Yes, he is from a rich family, but he works 16 hours a day and treat every staff like his family. He earns so much love, loyalty and respect from his employees. There will be two new products coming out between September and October and one more very high end camera that costs about $5000 dollars before Xmas. This CEO that shorts are attacking is actually a very ethical and hardworking with great visions for new technologies and business. They beat earning like it or not. Expect 6 cents and they have 8 cents. Don't fall into the traps of the shorts because they would very much like to steal your shares based on many lies they post on this board to influence your decision. GoPro is a growth stock. Be strong and stay invested, you will not be disappointed.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • ReneSola Ltd. (SOL) has been on the move lately as the stock has risen by 19.9% in the past four weeks, and it is currently trading well above its 20-Day SMA. This is a pretty solid move higher, but the question that has to be on investors’ minds right now is; can this trend continue?

    While there can be no telling for sure, it is certainly encouraging that earnings estimates have risen in the past few weeks on the company, suggesting that sentiment on SOL is moving in the right direction. In fact, the stock currently has a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), suggesting that the recent run could certainly continue for this in-focus company.

    It is very important for all the investors to keep up its knowledge of all the competitions. Pay Pal is the only thing now making EBAY profit, but Pay Pal is facing stiffer and increased competition in its industry rapidly. Get out of EBAY because it will be a dead money and even bring you big loss down in the road. Consider the jump as a blessing and get out.

    Sentiment: Sell

  • I will keep this growth stock all the way till Xmas.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Frank: rad. Dropped a lot after David Einhor old news about seling his RAD investment last quarter two days ago. rad. Dropped a lot after David Einhor old news about seling his RAD investment last quarter two days ago

    that news is so old like more than a month and half ago, but the stock dropped after the news hit the wire. Stupid investors to react such an old news
    shaking the tree

    John: below 7

    Frank: yes. No other news, but just David Einhorn news about he sold his holding last quarter
    RAD beat earning last quarter and stock went up to be near 8.50
    since then a lot of profit taking plus RAD lowers its next quarter's guidance
    then suddenly they announced they had a strong June, stock up to 7.70 and dropped again

    John: einhorn said he got out bec RAD had reached its predicted target...
    so everyone followed the smart money

    Frank: yes, he sold last quarter. not this month
    very old news
    I can understand if he announces that he is planning to sell
    then investors are entitled to react
    but he sold more than a month and half ago
    when the stock was over $8
    so why would people are reacting to the old news and to sell at $7 to bring down to $6.60
    that makes Einhorn a winner and investors stupid losers
    buy low and sell high is the way
    Einhorn sold over $8 and investors sold at 6.60 to 7

    John: so should I add another 500?

    Frank: totally

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Sentiment: Sell

  • Amazon is taking more and more business from Ebay while eventually Master Card, Visa and few others will get rid of the Pay Pal and using their own Master Pass. This investment market is all about forward looking and future. This stock is going down much more. EBAY will eventually face cutting cost by laying off more of their unproductive high pay executives which I assure you there are plenty.

    I have no position of this stock.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • New products on their way.

    This company requires a big shake up and let go of the executives who go to work thinking of how to steal, how to bully and how to escape of responsibilities and liability, the culture inside is like cancer spreading deep. No wonder my friend quit from the company even he is in the top management level two years ago. He saw the bad root is too deep to change and yank and no longer he will waste his time and his hard work in company like this.

    FYI: I have no position in this stock. I post based on what I have learned and seen based on facts.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Furthermore, I also see EBAY will lose to its competitions as more and more credit card companies come up with their own payment system such as Masterpass. I am very glad to hear Apple's announcement yesterday that they will have ApplePay to compete with PayPal as well. It takes honesty, ethics, great visions and good people in the leadership to success. I don't see that in EBAY. Good luck to those who are still trying and fighting to seek the low to average and to get in. They will need it.

  • To protect this pathetic stock from dropping below $50. This is way too obvious! Sell by the bounce. Take care.
