creating an image takes time. wait until Oct 7 when the VW can come up a resolution, or else big fine. even if there is some proposed resolution on the table, it will take time for the stock to climb back, since VW will have to spend money, and not make money to resolve this catastrophe.
last month, Saudi special force had uncovered and disrupted a plan by ISIS to blow up two of Saudi's oil storage facilities, reported by MShariq news. Due to the sensitive information, the name of the 2 oil storage facilities were not mentioned in the report.
All I can say from this report is that, if the incident did occurred, what do you think the price of oil will be like? and all the stocks that are related to the oil industry?
OBL tried to blow up the twin towers several times, actually carried out the plan twice, and finally did it on the 2nd try, and that was thousand of miles away, what chance do the terrorists have in a land right next to them?
So should I own oil stock, sure, why not, it's so cheap now, own a little bit won't make a dent in my portfolio even if it drops another 75%, and I hope not.
what that means is the mini ice age has already started, by this winter, the weather will get a bit colder, and the cold will last much longer, by the 10th year, you will see a very short summer, much shorter than the current Alaska's short summer, and when the ice age is in its full effect, only natural gas is the stock to own.
the problem is that you have a lot of traders buying and selling based on emotion and not logic. ever heard of rumor of a buy out, yeah, price goes sky high. so if there is some kind of a conflict in Saudi Arabia, let's say ISIS blew up an oil reserve, you will see this stock and other oil relate stocks go up.
My company owned HP printing from the most expensive to the cheapest, they were all junk, I bet that HP 3D printing will be the same, which is kind of like the story of 3D printer's quarterly report. same old sh1t.
take SodaStream for example, it came out with lousy preliminary report for every quarter since fall 2013, and I've not seen it raised guidance since then, the way I see it is that company with bad pre-report will never, ever raise guidance. I bought in this DDD stock at high high, I'm just gonna have to stick with it 'til death.
DDD is a ran by DD (dumb and dumber), too bad I didn't know, I own quite a few shares at a big loss. I guess I'm stuck with them for a long freaking time.
easier said than done, the bottom line is you've got to know when to get in and when to get out, which in most case, nobody.
thanks, that's the kind of info I need, in addition, just a few weeks ago, Cramer was betting on that oil will go up, so in my portfolio, oil stock is a must have, and SN is at a buying price right now.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
in a few more weeks $60 dollar price tag on SPWR is considered cheap, I said the same thing for MNST and GMCR when they were around $40, unfortunately, it took a year plus, not a few more weeks, bottom line is, it was true.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Between now and 2016, there might be a crash, and regardless of how well the stock is doing or not, the stock price will drop dramatically, I've traded this stock when it was $18-45, then again at $30-70, If you're not a daily trader, go long on this one for the dividend, but the right price is in the 20 to low 30 and not more, or you will wait a long time to see any profit.
but that's part of the business, I hold the stock since Oct 2013 already at a loss, but not so big, I finally dumped it today, all 2610 shares, I lost $112,405, stupid me for holding it that long.
the only chance is that Opec or the U,S cuts back oil production, driving up the price higher, or back to 90-100 dollars a barrel, then I think you'll see the 29-30 stock price again
The idea of Soda Stream is quite clever, make your own soda, anytime any where, and I think it's a very good idea, but so far it only penetrates 1% of the U.S. Market, and I think this is its major, major problem: Soda Stream is so lack of marketing its products.
Take for example, when ever I see an add from Bed & Bath, Wal-Mart, or Target, I would see some advertisements for Keurig, Kitchen Aid, Magic Bullet...etc, but I've not seen an ad for Soda making machine, even now when it's coming close to the big holidays, and then the commercial, Soda Stream can not just have a 1 or 2 commercials during the super bowl, regardless how many people were watching, I'm not so sure if anyone remembers to go out and purchase one. Soda stream's marketing department sucks badly on this one.
So how can this problem be solved, SODA needs PEPSI, Pepsi cola has always been very strong advertising its products, and if anyone can get the word out, it's Pepsi, If Pepsi decides to buy some or all of Soda Stream, I think it can help boost the sale, and increase the market share of 1% to %5 easily. having say that, I will have to wait to see how the sale of Pepsi flavor goes, If Pepsi decides to further involve with Soda Stream, I think the stock will go up much higher. I bought some Soda at $21, and as most of us trader here, long or short, there's a 50% of us making $$, and 50% losing $$, and that depends on more involvement of Pepsi or NOT.
