I'm guessing with your use of an exclamation point that this thought is a new one for you?
HAIN has been mentioned as a possible target for years.
Who knows if/when it will happen.
I like the shares without any prospect of a takeover.
:...look at this stock it was at 47 cents at one time."
The problem is that the huge run up to 47 cents last year was solely due to a pump job. Go back and read some of the messages; there were a few hard core pumpers. Who knows who or how many people were actually involved, but there clearly was a game of musical chairs being played and sadly, quite a few players got caught standing when the music stopped. Look at the historic volume for that time period; from hardly any trades, if any, to "significant" volume, only to see the volume dry up and the share price crumble.
Fast for to now...look at the volume from a month or so ago to now. Notice how the volume has started to significantly drop off? Notice that the high for shares was on a huge volume day?
There are better places to speculate.
I also marked August 24 on my calendar (three months after the initial "breakout") to see if vpor is trading between .10 and .30.
Flat for a month and then a quick break out to .005 or a bit more than a 300% jump and then a "super rally" will take place...just three months later, vpor will be trading 20 - 60 times greater than .005 or....83 - 250 times its current share price. I can only write WOW!
IF number of shares outstanding remains constant (doubtful), vpor's market cap would increase from today's slightly more than 3 million dollars to almost 800 million dollars with vpor @ .30.
I've marked my calendar for May 26 (about a month) and to revisit your guesses.
"...but I don't know when to get back in..."
Here's when, IMO: Never.
Be happy you didn't put any money in a pumper's pocket.
Why even consider opening a new position?
Why not move on to another more promising speculation?
Cool. Being the owner of a few multi-nationals, I've been hearing/reading about the damage to the bottom line a la dollar strength. I didn't think deeper to consider the relationship between the dollar and oil and then oil's relationship with KMI.
The jury is still out on KMI's Euro bond issuance; I'm not going to lose any sleep on that.
I'm not even close to being a KMI expert, or an energy expert to boot. I do like having some direct exposure.
That said, I'm under the impression that CO2 relates to another "ex"; not exploration, but extraction. Am I even close?
"The dollar strength will likely depress earnings in the next quarter or two..."
I thought one of the "pluses" of KMI was that its revenues are mostly derived from US operations.
How much foreign exposure does KMI have?
"Better yet, they could split this year and open the doors for all of "you" to invest, because you missed the boat the first time."
A rather silly statement, since splits do not impact a company's fundamentals.
Remember: it's the VALUE of the company and one's investment that counts, not the number of shares.
Apologies if you were being facetious.
Hey! I see (form Yahoo Finance, I don't watch) your buddy is recommending KR; I couldn't tell from the text whether he was "excited" or not though.
Maybe I'm a tad "stupid", but generally speaking, I agree with the other poster's premise.
I've been in a WMT once, about 15 years ago, just to see what it was all about (I didn't buy anything).
I don't think I've ever been in a TGT store.
They offer groceries?
You seem to be an expert on grocery retail. Do WMT and TGT offer Bell & Evans chicken?
Hey, while I have your attention, are you still holding on to your 3/25 call re KMI?
"...you will be able to add to KMI at about $37 before long” ?
My point is it is folly to do any technical analysis on a "company" that has shares trading in fractions of a penny.
If you leave "for weeks" I guess you are not planning on taking a vacation; one away from both work and stocks???
My ultimate point, er, my opinion is that "investing" in this "company" is a loser's game.
Again, given you have "people", I'd think you'd be valued as an employee of a firm on the Street; why not apply and get paid?
