UPRO (S&P500 index); SPPI (stock of the future? - certainly not stock of the past)
Since close of July 31, 2014 market; performance for month of August 2014:
122.85 v 109.76 UP 11.9% SPPI 8.11 v 7.04 UP 15.2% - SPPI wins August
Today's close versus end of August 2013 (one year)
UPRO UP 86%, SPPI UP 6%
Today's close versus end of Aug 2012 (2 years performance)
UPRO UP 192% SPPI DOWN (31%)
Today's close versus end of Aug 2011
UPRO UP 326% SPPI DOWN (4%)
Today's thoughtful 2-part question:
(1) In general, should CEO's be judged by short-term and/or long-term stock performance?
(2) Should CEO's performance be compared with overall performance of the S&P500 Index?
I'll depart for awhile and let you continuing bashing those who challenge you.
I'll depart for awhile and let you continue your EtalsPumpDudes campaign
I'll depart for awhile and let you threaten the world over your 'short' allegations that have NOTHING to do with me.
I'll return every couple weeks to update the SPPI vs UPRO pricing competition through 12.31.2014
Since you appear to truly believe stocks.toshort controls SPPI's stocks price (LOL), my disappearance should cause an IMMEDIATE MASSIVE RALLY toward $20 over the next few weeks.
Good luck to you EtalPumpDudes!
If I'm ripping pump dudes, am I then deemed to be ripping the company itself?
Or am I simply ripping overzealous pump dudes?
Personally, as stated many times, I have no problem if this company proves successful.
I have remained here to provide balance to so many falsified lying pump posts, so that innocent victims aren't mislead into buying stock without doing their own due diligence. Those who may have listened to you poster(s) pumps in the $Teens likely got serioulsy burned. Pump dudes committed more of a crime then, than those griping right now over a $1 price drop that has mostly recovered. So yes, if that sort of makes me an #%^
I'm not the one who uses as EtalPumpDudeTeam to post here. I'm not the one constantly shouting "news after hours," "trading halted," "sellout coming," "completely undervalued," pump pump pump.
I'm NOT "handled," a "crook," a paid basher, short sppi, or part of your imagined conspiracy theories. You are so far off base with your lying accusations and nonsense, it is consistently laughable.
False accusation lawsuits filed can be counter-sued in a very serious way.
Are you accusing your beloved inside management team of being a LEAK ?
And if so, how would they personally profit on the 'short' side?
"ALL MANIPULATION OF A PUBLICLY TRADED SECURITY IS ILLEGAL! PERIOD. Including the Pumpers and Rippers on this board. But OUR efforts are NOT being confined to the board after Aug 20 and 21"
so Etals, you admit it - key word "OUR"
and you admit your manipulation is ILLEGAL! PERIOD
Which will have the higher percentage gain during the period 8/1/14-12/31/2014
tortoise UPRO or hare SPPI ? Currently the hare is in the lead 12.4% to 9.5%
My past call for S&P500 by 12/31/2014 = 2,030
If applying my LEGAL USA right of Freedom of Speech to annoy ElalPumpDudes is a matter of serious interest to the SEC, they are doing this country a disservice and should be disbanded. They couldn't even figure out Madoff for YEARS.
I have stated repeatedly, I am NOT short SPPI. Jail the Pump Dudes
This message board gets more idiotic by the day. I'm clearly not the only moron posting here.
When a stock price suddenly moves upward/downward on high volume, there is simply an inside leak. Management and employees of companies (publicly traded or not) simply don't keep their mouths shut and silent. That's human nature. And that is why I simply stated "loose lips sink ships."
BTW, SPPI had a very nice price recovery Friday - congrats to longs
Goes both directions -
If a "handled" poster can cause a selloff by their statements on this message board,
then the EtalPumpDude can cause a massive upward rally by their statements on this message board.
We have certainly witnessed first-hand how the EtalPumpDude THOUSANDS of pump posts don't move this stock upward. Thus vice versa, "so-called BASHERS" are equally worthless.
The recent VOLUME selling was not the result of anything coming from this message board.
Likewise, VOLUME buying is not the result of anything coming from this message board.
This message board is SO-After-the-facts
JoeRootEtals, is it your preference to have ONLY YOURSELF posting here all-day long?
Or is this a chat board for 'freedom of speech' open discussions and debate?
SPPI UP 12.4%
UPRO UP 9.5%
This morning a market BEAR predicted S&P500 at 2,300 by 12.31.2014
Recently, a prior market bull predicted DOW 6,000's within 2-3 years
Nice weekend to all
ALL of my stocks and indexes were UP today.
Pump dudes, please explain what is going wrong with your amazing investment?
So if they actually accomplish something in a bear market, maybe they can briefly buck the trend
They certainly have bucked an overall upward market trend for the past few years !!
the buying pattern never changes
Currently, due to the lowest interest rates imaginable, elderly people like myself got driven away from Certificates of Deposit, T-Bills, Bonds, and money markets. We found ourselves forced back into common stocks, including indexes. So far, that switch has worked out for many, but if rates start to rise (as the Fed appears soon to do), the stock market will decline. Money will then flow out of stocks, back into fixed securities, which could lead to a stock market plunge.
The historical rule of thumb -
When interest rates decline, buy stocks/indexes; when interest rates rise, sell stocks/indexes
Personally, I don't see a major increase in interest rates coming near-term. However, I'll be the first to admit that if rates start rising, I will finally reduce exposure to stocks/indexes.
Off topic, it remains odd to me how the markets don't plunge with WAR all around the world, and even in the backyards of many States including Illinois and now Missouri. Racial tensions were to be mended under Obama, not accelerated. Go figure.
