post #5056 of 5397

There are a couple levels of support but remember in February we were below 15,500 so I wouldn't be surprised is somehow we dropped to that support level.

I'm just doing a little nibbling too for now... just picked up four more that look good to me after the opening bell -- LyondellBasell, Exxon, Kohl's and Franklin Templeton Investments...



My biggest gamble of the group is T. Rowe Price which I picked up for $77 and change... we'll see how that goes.foo.gif

Don't jinx it!!

Ahhh, that's a refreshing investment strategy. The key to my portfolio's performance is not getting jinxed.

Being results oriented. I can say that GF's avoiding of being jinxed is working nicely today.

I love results. Sold SCTY pre-earnings and it was down 7% today. Still love the story and plan to buy back in at a lower level.

Don't scoff.

I just made some solid gains by loading up on a Triple Leveraged Inverse Jinx ETF on margin.

I don't know if a Jinx ETF is some inside joke, but triple leverage on margin in this investment climate is foolish at best.

Yes, referencing a couple of posts up.

Thank the lord, for his sake.

I'm serious, guise.

It's a new ETF offered by Vanguard and the expense ratio is 525 bps.

What's appealing about SCTY over FSLR? I own neither, but I am curious.

I don't know enough about FSLR to really compare and contrast. They are different segments of the same market. In fact, when you google finance it, SCTY doesn't even appear as a competitor.

FSLR manufactures and retails, but SCTY is more in the business of leasing and derivatives of that model. I like the story because they are signing long term leases with the tailwind of lower and lower costs of getting solar panels installed with ever increasing efficiency. It's the slower equivalent of if Intel in the early 90's leased 386 processors long term with Pentium processors right on the horizon, followed by the Pentium Pro, II, III, etc. You're locking customers into obsolescence, basically, and they are paying for it. If that can't generate income, what will?
