to buy MCZ in many a moon. Take advantage of the short seller drive down. Need convincing? Look at the volume and price chart for the last couple months. Cheers.....and yes, 62 today and 65 noon Friday.
Well said. At some point a guy just has to bite the bullet and acknowledge it for what it is....just as you said. About a year or so ago I bought some HPT in an account that I focus on dividend/income stocks. I really do like HPT alot.....but sure is more fun trading TA if you get in sync with it. Cheers.
Based on what they did last time, my guess would be $7.50. I thank my lucky stars my timing has been good with TA. Been out for quite awhile but still watch close. Sad.
I know you have and I do enjoy and learn from your posts. I admit to knowing little about coal in particular. What I see in my universe is many oil/gas/drilling/shale "energy" companies that are utter disasters in terms of their financials and on the verge of going out of business. I see coal stockpiles and industry capacity at relative low (or at least healthy) levels. I see an industry (coal) that is now lean, mean, and productive. I see a political environment that can only get better with a better Senate and better pres. I have 100% faith in the big remaining coal companies. The only thing that keeps me from going all-in is the high percentage of short shares. If you can't tell, I think solar has a tiny place in the world, I think wind is a utter disaster for our country because it wrecks perfectly good farmland and views. Every time I see one, I want to get out the torch and cut it down. Several years from now, ACI and ANR will be 10 baggers from today's level.
Really. The chart strongly suggests about 1.95 within about 7 - 10 days. This is underpinned by the fundamentals (PS, PB, EV/EBITDA, etc.) that say it should be at about $2.75 today. The 7 to 10 days is just a guess, I'm in for the long term.....next 2 - 4 years, but I will trade the swings a little in some different accounts.
Congratulations! Your post is solid evidence that you need to eat a good meal, get some rest, and start thinking rationally. Cheers.
No problem nutjob....1) TTM EPS +25 cents......You screwed up the +/- sign, idiot.
Wow, that was tough. Thenext Twelve Months will be very profitable......and the stock should go up about 5 - 10 cents per week for the next few months. Hang on, the fun is just getting started.
oops...forgot to mention I also hold LOJN, COOL, and SSY. I lightened up a bit on LOJN at 4.6 and am about breakeven right now on COOL and up a little on SSY. LOJN is a pretty good size position for me, COOL and SSY are small.
I'd love to hear which stocks you current hold long or short.
I don't short stocks, seems too much risk for a best-case 100% gain. Way easier buying something like HTCH at 3 and selling it at 12 - 15 in a year or two. Or SPDC at 38 cents and selling at 3.80ish a couple years later....which I did...hehehe....all smiles. Now if I had only been smart enough not to sell my CNQR and DWCH shares way way to soon. Win some big, win some small, lose some too.
Hi mei, Thanks for asking. My harvest is plentiful. I sold the last of my BFDI earlier this week at .179 and took a small net loss on my position. But not to worry, I had many shares of UVE from 6 - 9 months ago, the last of which I sold at 12.46 this week. ACI has also been kind to me the last couple weeks, hold a core position at 3.96 and bought/sold a bunch of other shares 3X in the last few weeks for good gains. Unloaded all my BAC in the upper 15s a week or so ago and AA in the 9.6 range. Made 30% on LTRX in two months, sold it all between 1.85 and 2.02. Also sold all my MMM and PEP that I held and accumulated since 1995 in their DRP programs. Also made a spectacular day trade on SPDC a few days ago, still hold a core position. Sorry to ramble.
These are some of my current positions: HTCH, MCZ, ACI, MEA, VTSI, COCO, INVE, ANR, HPT, TANN, PNNT, QCCO, NTWK, MRK, PFE, SPDC, NUE, and a few others. My weightings are all over the map. Biggest positions are HTCH, MCZ, MEA, MRK. Even with HTCH I was pretty lucky having sold all but 5k shares before the drop from the 6s. Current position is in the low 3s. IT WILL BE A $15 STOCK WITHIN TWO TOO TO YEARS. Buy some and enjoy.
Yep, life's good.
Finally, an analyst capable of math! Refreshing. They certainly hit the main points. I keep thinking the most telling tell that HTCH is heading much higher is that insiders didn't sell when they had ample opportunity above 6 last Summer. The only reason the stock has dipped is because the Seagate ramps were pushed out by several months.
HTCH days at $3 are numbered, take advantage. Cheers.
Hi cindy, Shorting is legal and a great strategy at times. This is one of those times. You can short BFDI through just about any of the major brokerages...such as Fidelity. But you will need to call them in order to do it. You can't just do it with a click of the mouse but they will let you do it if you call and speak to a rep. They just want to make sure you know what you are doing. Very easy to do.
Good luck and short as much as you can. tyerep's suggestion on a 2nd mortgage is a good one. Also, you can get additional credit cards and max them out. You will likely make 100% within a month or two. Good luck.
Your shares need to aspire to greater accomplishments....like mine. COCO common told me they will be above $8 by December 1, 2014. Upticks in enrollment, cash, and EPS are coming. Relax, buy your shares some more friends soon. Cheers.
Not sure which story is scariest......falling into a creek......or waiting on the L. -5F temp right now, -22F windchill, almost cold. Ha Ha.
I live in the middle of Wisconsin....current temp is 3F and windchill of about -15F. No big deal for us, but it will be funny when it hits the east coast.....Wall Street will be buying coal stocks like crazy....as if they are surprised it gets cold.
No sure of exactly what sort of stocks/companies interest you, but I sort of think VTSI is getting close to heading significantly higher. Not the most liquid of stocks and it is a very very small company so you can't make a fortune, but I'm in it for a 5X move over the next year or two. I own about 1% of the company....which sounds more impressive than it is. Fun though. Others heading higher.....MEA, HTCH, and the coal stocks.
