Anyone else feeling optimistic about this stock? Come on, let's have some discussion!!
I just started a position today but I have held SWHC for many years and know it well. The downside to this stock is the heavy "short" positions and the truth that people don't like GUN stocks. They would blow away earnings and the PPS would fall for the short term. I stoled the funds to buy SWHC from half my RiteAid (RAD), stock who has earnings the same day. Hope one of them hits.
The beauty of the message board is all I have to do is review supwerbowl6wins posts to see what his motives are.
My motives are I am long time retired from Xerox and stocks are my passion. I work on them day and night, it's all a game to me. I am always looking to learn and their are always smart,civil, investors that share their knowledge with others then there are always the jerks that all they want to do is pick a fight with someone that doesn't agree with them. It's always personal and has NOTHING to do with the stock. I NEVER use the ignore on anyone civil and I want to hear from those that DON'T agree with me to see if there is something I missed. Good Luck !
Why would you sell today?
Well they are selling that's why we are in the RED. Those that don't trade on EMOTION know their are just about has many negatives as postives for RAD. Looking back on my 45 years of investing I can't remember a stock in the red just before earnings that had a good report. I already dumped half of my stock this morning and if the stock is in the red after the FED minutes (1400hrs), I'll sell the rest at what I can get.
Looks like more than a quarter of the daily volume in the first hour of trades. Seems Buyers trades equal Sellers trades. For those that think every trade has a buyer and a seller, Buy trades are at the ASK price and Sell trades are at the BID price. Bottom line with high volume and no PPS movement. Just as many people are getting out as getting in and earnings release will be a #$%$ shoot.
your a short......i'm a long.....what else is there to say.....
Your Wrong AGAIN ! I am long and will be at the end of the day but with far fewer shares. So far this morning I can't get my limit SELL order @9.10 because a lot of other people are selling before earnings. I need the funds to increase my SWHC which is a far better company than RAD but I think the weak RAD will merge soon so I will keep some RAD.
It's always fun to try to call what will happen tomorrow after the earnings are released. Some posters think they will double the estimate earnings but last year in this quarter they did not beat the estimate at all. I think they will beat earnings and revenue but the guidance will be their down fall and after a PPS spike up it will fall. I have to deal with Smith and Wesson SWHC the same day so I will sell at least half my RAD and add to my SWHC which as huge profits but people don't like gun stocks. Hopefully if I miss any gains in RAD I will make them up in SWHC. Good Luck !
no bashing here......just the facts
Lets stick to the FACTS of the STOCK.
RULE ONE with me I NEVER insult other posters and you can check all my post till the cows come home, there is no need to be anything but civil. If you don't agreed tell me why and stick to the stock. Good Luck!
you been flappen your jaws since the sixes.......
Is that all you can do is attack other people because you don't how to do anything better ? That's sad. Not one word about RiteAid only insults to people you don't know. Grow up !
its that simple if you want to make money here
No it's not that SIMPLE.
If you want to be sure to make money here you sell and pocket your profits. That's the only thing simple. If you hold you may or may not make money and that's OK if that is what you want to do.
I may be different, but it just seems like an inconvenience to me if people have to walk into a big store like Target to get their prescription picked up.
Look at it this way, forget about the people that don't want to walk to a big box store let them go to their normal store they are use to but the NEW BUSINESS is from the people that were going to that big box store anyway. That's added TRAFFIC , NEW CUSTOMERS that use to go there anyway. That's a big plus.
I think the cvs/tgt deal is genius. bought cvs on that news and will wait to see rad's earnings later this week.
I agree, if RiteAid could team up with Walmart think of the TRAFFIC RiteAid would EXPOSED TO. I would load up on RAD in a minute !
I think the big trades will come in the final half hour,
Big Trades !!! There is little more than an hour and a half left in the trading day and RAD hasn't even reached HALF of the normal daily VOLUME ! Buyers are afraid to BUY and Sellers are afraid to SELL. The growth has been down this quarter and the PPS has been Flat, in the 8's for most of the quarter. If this stock can reach the 52wk high then it did very good for only 3 or 4 cents in earnings. After earnings it should correct. RAD will never see 12 this year, today or tomorrow is the HIGH for the year. Posted 6/16

If your so confident in what is going to happen after the RAD earnings announcement on Thursday morning, sell your shares on Wednesday evening.
I already posted that I will sell most of my shares before earnings. If the PPS goes down I Win, If the PPS goes up I got my profits and still have a few shares so I Win again.
The guidance will be RAD's down fall. Check you other stocks those "Target" numbers mean nothing. Some of my stocks never reach those targets and others are well over the target's, it's no more than a guess. Good Luck! Looks like a rough morning unless your in Oil but things should get better after 1400hrs.
1 penny decrease
You better get your eyes checked or you can't read !
Estimates were cut more than half from 8 cents to 3 cents that equals a 5 cents cut and some analysts say the current estimate is now 2 cents which would be a quarter of the 8 cents 90 days ago. That being said I do think RAD will beat the low bar that as been set but sales and growth have been slowing and that's a trend. The PPS will fall after the earnings release, my guess is in the 7's.
Knowledge Universe is an education company founded by brothers Lowell and Michael Milken, Larry Ellison, and Tom Kalinske. LeapFrog subsequently merged with Knowledge Universe's Knowledge Kids division. Kalinske, a former executive at Mattel, became LeapFrog chief executive officer as a result of the merger
Bottom Line nothing happens, no merge or buy-out, without Milkens OK .
Interesting Post. I wonder what the current contract with the pharmacy that they use offers and how the Walmart supplies the drugs. Also I was told that Walmart uses more than one pharmacy depending on the area of the country. I think you are right Walmart had RICHER FIELDS to plow.
Why do you care about what another poster says, that's all he is to me. I only care about the stock, that's the only thing that counts. That's the trouble with some, not all, of the posters here they think attacking others that don't say what they want to hear will change or control the PPS, it won't. Just worry about the stock not the message.
Where have you been I posted that before the open on Friday.
