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.
a few weeks ago, SEMA auto show displayed a complete 3D printed car, the application has already gone beyond whatever demo you have seen a 10 years ago. wake up douche-bag.
it was the stupid announcement from the CEO 3 weeks before earning that drove the stock this low, the price was at around $44 the day before the announcement, If the SOB would have kept his mouth shut, I think we might see a $47-48 up to the earning date, and probably trade at around $44 today. well, I lost money on this stock, I guess I have to make it up some where else, and file a loss on my tax. life sucks badly.
I can't find any bad news on SPWR, but then investors just seem to take it to the toilet, I don't get it, however, trading experience tells me to buy when something like this comes along. I'll try to get some around 29.30 to 29.50 today.
