This just leaves us guessing ?
ryda2I Go ahead, just try and post ANYTHING on that particular message board........and see how fast your post gets buried. That message board is totally worthless to anyone but the robo-poster.
It uses so many aliases there that it is nearly impossible to tell who is posting, until you see the same posts being repeated 24 hours a day, by a dozen different names, then after a short time comes with another dozen different names.
So you think that I could post that I am selling , and why I'm selling will be seen by...........ANYBODY, for more than five minutes there.
Follow your own advice and go post something, anything at all..........then you will understand (maybe) what I'm talking about.
And personally, I consider it totally ridiculous these posters that tell you every day, I bought this many shares, and will be selling those shares this afternoon.
Who the hell cares ?
Not I !
I don't tell anybody to Strong Buy, Strong Sell, or Hold, I am not a financial adviser.
If I told you what you should do as far as this stock here...........do you know me?
Are you going to take my advice..............from a total stranger on a message board.....ME ? !
Good Luck !
One thing I learned a very long time ago, never take financial advice from anybody that tells me I'm......"loosing" my money.
Is that the same as .....loosening my money ?
Does that make me a real .....looser ?
Day/swing traders always sell the news, when they are gone the stock will resume the positive trend. It shouldn't take all that long.
Like you mentioned FB, a lot of people wanted that one, so they killed the enthusiasm on that one, and made it scary for the little guy.....then moved right in.
Shortly before the positive data release the stock was pushed down, then with the data release the stock exploded to the upside on gigantic volume.
It's all a game.
Thanks, after looking at my message I see I goofed a little a couple of times, I said....."Look past the next five minutes..............and remember......stocks fluctuate every single day..........and in the process take your stop loss orders."
I meant to cancel your stop loss orders.
And I said...."Don't be wring your hands "
Duh.....I meant to say don't be wringing your hands. :)
Like they're waiting for an acquirer to come along. They start hiring certain management types to appear as they don't need, or want a buyout, they will go it alone.
It's a tactic, commonly used.
They have to appear independent, not a little lost fawn in the woods awaiting a hero to come along and rescue them.
Just common sense.
Simply be patient.
Hey factsnogossip, do you have a comprehension problem ? Read what I said, and a little slower this time, and if you have to, move your lips while you are reading, maybe that will help in understanding what I said.
I did NOT say YOU were the one telling everybody to put in a 25% stop loss order........did I ?
You just added that he was giving good advice.
Go look again, but take your time, as much as needed.
It's okay, we can't all get it right the first time.
Here ya go folks.
Here is .....factsnogossip........admitting he wants back IN at $8.20..........MINUTES after he is backing the poster that is telling everybody to put in a 25% stop loss order,
Please give us some more financial advice factsnogossip...........we just came down from the mountains yesterday.
Maybe we should put in a 50% stop loss order for you ?
Who do you think you are kidding ? You would LOVE to buy the stock 25% lower..........so let's talk everybody to putting in a stop loss order.
Nice try !
It's true, some of us were born at night.............but.......... NOT LAST NIGHT !
I never use stop loss orders. Guess who can see them? You are giving them the gift they are patiently waiting for.
This stock is going to pay off big, if you don't realize this, you should not be in the stock market at all, if you can't take the consolidation phase after a huge rise in a stock price you never should get near any stocks. It happens to all stocks......period !
Look at ALL stocks that are up in the stratosphere.....and stop and think for ONE second, did they get there STRAIGHT UP ?
Hell no, there is buyers and profit-takers...............all the way up.
If you are not mature enough to understand this............leave stocks alone, it is not your game.
There will always be nickel and dimers in the market.........they do NOT look at the bigger picture, and could not care less about the positives, they are the video game generation...........BANG.....I just made $300 , time to go find another one !
If you want the big rewards it requires one very simple characteristic...............PATIENCE !
Don't be wring your hands and trying to analyze every single blip in the stock price.
Look past the next five minutes..............and remember......stocks fluctuate every single day..........and in the process take your stop loss orders.
I NEVER use them !
I personally have seen instances where an acquiring company will install/plant one of theirs in the target company, and after a period of time make the acquisition, but after the fact it is no longer obvious that, that took place, not publicized or made a big deal about.
If you are a local and more aware of a company's goings on, then you are more aware of this type of strategy with that particular company, but if you are not a local where the company is headquartered more than likely you will not be aware after the fact, because I doubt the acquiring company is going to take out a full page ad in the WSJ letting the world know their tactics.
Where I live I know of two companies that have made many acquisitions after a period of time with one of their ex-employees installed in their target company.
MDT and STJ.
Anyhow I apologize if I offended you, that really was not my intention.
Good Luck to us.
Today's action does NOT mean a buyout will not come soon, today's action is because SGYP was NOT bought out............TODAY!
As all the fickle idiots speculated was going to be announced at the HealthCare Conference.......
You couldn't figure this out ?
I posted in advance this was going to happen, now the fickle ones are sadly leaving the stock, and to those of us who are remaining............good riddance to them.
If we use every day plain old common sense we would ask ourselves.......would a company with major news in their pocket..........pick the time to announce it at...........a HealthCare Conference, in a hotel, loaded with 50 plus, other companies that are also there to pump their goods ?
All the new, and newer longs are speculating the company will announce a buyout offer, and are asking such silly questions as, will I get cash for my stock, or will I get stock from the buying company etc...?
Those kinds of questions scream neophyte loud and clear. How can anybody answer ridiculous questions like that since there is NO offer yet !
When a stock is loaded with fickle types like this, it makes me a little nervous.
This is not bashing the stock, or company in any way, just too many of the Yahoo's in the stock which at a sneeze will cause havoc.
I personally will be glad when they are flushed out.
And they will be.
Actually a lot of what I'm complaining about is on the other form of messaging on the "Market Pulse" which is right below the "Message Boards" selection. There are some on there that it is obvious that they have been in the stock for a long time and are well versed on the company, but they are minimal compared to the braindeads' on that blog, or whatever they call it.
Let's see, zrschiebout, you grabbed "some cheap shares" today.
Do you even begin to realize what you are saying ?
Today is "cheap shares" for you ?
In other words you bought way higher than today, like maybe .........yesterday ?
Now you are all of a sudden a very knowledgeable go to person on this company ?
Read your own words and see how others interpret it....."I'm all in now; grabbed some more at $8.95. It's nice to have some cheap shares on a down day"
