Haaa, wild thing! I just bought some TWTR in the low 40's. Gulp I missed the bottom and caught the bounce at 43.
and +1 for leaking the news, ON Twitter!
Also opened a position on SVU with room to play in case it goes down
haaa, yeah I took note and waited for it to drop to a point I was willing to buy in. I've still got some room in my allowance if it drops closer to 26.5 and I'd double down there.
CMG's been hammered... I bought too high but for anyone else, might be worth looking into
it was a blind buy based on the notes and general positive discussions.... so firstly the version I have is a roll-on, so it has somewhat limited projection. Really good longevity, but it's not that present after a few hours. As for the smell, well it's a lot of rich smells of oud, leather, scotch, etc, all very strong smells, but to be honest I've worn this now 2-3 times and I'm more or less indifferent to it. I find say Amouage has somewhat repetitive themes, etc but at...
Heard about it through a Cramer article.
I bought some at market open at 403 (gulp) and saw it drop. Added some more at 390 so average cost at 396 and I'm ok with that. Expensive stock but I think there's a lot of room to go up.
EPZM however, goddam, was doing so nicely and then bang right back down again.
TSM - had an alert set for it to drop a little more before buying... guess I missed that boat
TSLA - Trimmed a little, also bought some more
AAPL - accidentally bought double what I meant to (forgot to cancel my premarket order). Here's hoping it goes up...
Today Overall for Me:
Added a tiny bit - AXP, NDLS, COS.TO
Added a some - TSLA, YELP
Added a lot - AAPL
Rebought - SCTY
Opened new position - BIIB (and then it dropped more, sigh)
The Noodles - Taper the jeans from the knee down. If you're going to wear such a snug t-shirt you need more definition. Not meant as an insult, just saying a little gym action would probably go a long way there
I guess my main point is this. 90-95% of the money is the capital and the rest is gains. I'd rather put in the money when it's gone through a sharp drop to a low point, and gain 5% becuase of a 'recovery', plus there's an option to gain another 5% if it keeps growing, than to buy in at 'even' and risk 5 up or down and not know which one it's going to be. I could miss out on 5% up true, but there are a lot of companies out there to invest in and I'd rather buy losers than...
So basically here's my thinking on the process. If I look at a stock it's wherever it's at, if I buy it and wait for an earnings report, it could go up 5-7-10% or down the same amount.I've tried to speculate and pick ones I thought were going to jump, like FB for example, but if they're good solid companies then either the growth is priced in already so it's fairly stable, or there's some movement going to happen because of the crowd rush, but it could go either way. So I...
