My stop just was executed at $14.80. Was hoping it would go higher, but was able to lock in a near 1.5% gain from yesterday. Not great, but not bad. I thought this would get near $15. Oh well, GLA.
I bought this morning got it at $14.59. This drop looked like a buying opportunity to me. This stock continues to perform very nicely, with a 2.7% dividend yield, and analyst target of $15, it suggests to me that it is a buy when below $15. Already up over a 1% this morning, great short term trade opportunity. If market recovers tomorrow, F is over $15, then I will sell. GLA
I bought this morning premarket at $4.04. Got pretty mad at myself when it opened and was around $3.80+/-. Then like a rocket it took off. Put a stop limit in and kept changing my stop as the price continued to move. Got my stop in and sold at $4.55. Then I realized that I kept too many shares for my liking. So as the price continued to drop I put in another stop at $4.25 and was out, except for 60 shares I decided to hold onto. I had 2800 shares. Had I just sold everything at $4.80, I would've been up over $2k. But still made over $1k, so I am very happy. GLA
I bought DANG yesterday at $5.35, seen the huge move up happening so I bought some. Then it crashed, and kept crashing to the point I was down almost 5% in one day. Moved up this morning, and I was so happy I recouped and got out at $5.38. Just checked in on the quote. HOLY COW!! This thing is up almost 4% from when I sold it this morning. Congrats to all longs who are involved in this run up, you are up around 17% in 5 days. Just a friendly suggestion, not be a bad time to take a bit of your profits. When this swings it swings big, would hate to see you wind up on the other side of the coin. Again, congrats to all who were involved in the run up. GLA
You can sell it tomorrow 5/15 and still receive the dividend. I just bought DUK looking at the chart, seems to be in a downtrend that appears to be bottoming, maybe just the dividend stopping the downtrend but we will see. The dividend is a great bonus. BTW this message board is a mess. I must have added 10 people to my ignore list and had to go through 5 pages of posts to find an actual post about DUK. GLA
Now yahoo shows WEN with an EPS of -.01, therefore no P/E ratio. I read the article stating 2013 earning outlook raised to .22 that would still put a P/E ratio above that of MCD. Maybe WEN could be a long term play here, but in the short term it appears the share price will deliver some more pain. I chose to enter a new position in MCD. Appears the trend is turning in MCD and could hopefully make a few % in the next week or two. GLA
I was attempting to have an intelligent conversation. Which obviously you are incapable of being a participant. Therefore good bye you are on ignore. BTW have fun squeezing that 1.5% LOL. GLA
Very good point! Thinking of the majority of the posts on the yahoo boards, you are right, is seems that for every stock there are people calling for a short squeeze or bankruptcy. Somewhat funny, and you are right, the majority of the time they are calling for this when there is absolutely no chance of either happening. GLA
LOL, you have a very weak understanding of what a short squeeze is and have no idea of the conditions required to make one successful. 14.2M shares is nothing on a stock with 2.2B shares and a per share price of $1.50. Be realistic, 14.2M shares is only $21.3M, you think you can squeeze $21M in a stock with a market cap of over $3B. It is impossible. GLA
Your post maybe an explanation of why there is no short interest in ALU right now. I am not at all saying shorting ALU is a good play. I am merely responding to the orig. post calling for a short squeeze, which cannot happen unless there are short positions to squeeze. Since there is only 1.5% short interest, there are not shorts to squeeze. Why do people on every stock board call for a squeeze, especially in this case, where one cannot happen?
I am looking at entering a short term trading position (less than 30 days). I was looking at MCD and I compared the chart to WEN and noticed the large drop in price on WEN. However, is yahoo correctly showing WEN with a P/E over 300? If so there is no way I am entering a position in WEN, and good luck to all longs. Please respond and let me know if that P/E ratio is correct. GLA
Every board has someone calling for a short squeeze. Do you know what that term means? It has nothing to due with "trying to squeeze the last few cents." LOL. Please look at the stock statistics, there is less than 2% short interest, meaning there are NO short positions to squeeze.
I don't know the reply frenkeje left you because I have him on ignore. But I would bet you his comments were worthless. Am I right? As for why up so sharply, good question nobody knows, there has been silence from the company and all the alleged money experts. How does this move so dramatically, yet nobody is saying a word. The only reasonable assumption, is that investors liked the CEO's recent comments. GLA
Where do you see that? Yesterday 20M shares (huge), today probably 12M shares. That is only 1.5% of the float, any accumulation doesn't explain this big run up. Between 3/19 and 3/25, over 101M shares where traded, approx. 4.5% of the float, the stock price during that period fell from $1.47 to $1.33, a drop of 10%. Obviously there was massive selling pressure pushing the price lower, but that was 4.5% of the float. Yesterday and today is maybe 1.5% of the float and the price is up 10%. You see, it took 4.5% of the float to push it down, no way that 1.5% of the float is pushing it up 10%. So why the run up with no accumulation. If this volume continues for the next 3 days, then yes I would agree there is some accumulation going on, but this is too soon to say that and the volume doesn't explain this price movement, there is more at work here. GLA
This run up has been great. Got back my losses and even made a few bucks. I am not long term so short term is all that I was interested in. No news, no reports, no comments, nothing concerning this huge run in the last two days and the CEO's comments about dilution didn't make me comfortable yet the stock rallied. GLA.
It is getting very interesting now. The $1.42 support is still holding and we keep banging against the $1.44 resistance. We may higher. GLA
