I increased my AAPL position by 14% today.
post #9407 of 11202
Probably the right move to be honest but I was buying at 95-100 so would rather take a little off the table at a 10-15% profit and will pick more up if it hits 100-105. Still holding quite a bit and have sell orders at 120 and 130/135.

It's not an Amazing pick but I do like Adobe long. I've been trying to pitch cloud and see that we didn't pick up rht on my last pitch id like to get it in on my last pitch of the year.

Edit: I've been too busy making my model and report that I forgot to look at my holdings since last week...everything is up 5-10 percent.

They're around 140k now. Bear in mind, it's day one of a very hyped product. I'd bet equally on TSLA because of the Powerwall as I would the 3.

Im not sure where the surprise comes from; this was pretty clear even 2 years ago. Seeing people line up to pre-order one made some sense (the fed tax credit likely will be nearly wiped out by the S and X early into the 3's production run), but jeez, it's just a car.

Impressive numbers. But how many of those are low risk profiteering like guys lining up in front of Nike Town or Apple Store?

I don't know why I didn't buy more TSLA yesterday before market close. I mean you can't predict the future but was almost guaranteed to go up the next day. Could have sold premarket and made 5-7% easily. Oh well, I just sold off half of my remaining stake at 146 and am considering selling the rest now too. Not sure if it's going to come down a bit and i'd buy back in or if it'll go up another 5-10% again in the coming days.

I don't think anyone could have really made an accurate prediction. Analysts were expecting 10x fewer pre-orders, but I guess that speaks more to the analysts' abilities, or lack thereof.

This is dangerous rear view thinking. It's entirely plausible that investors could have sold on the news a la apple product announcements.

Turning a new leaf GF?

Interesting to see Walmart had a drop in revenue, but after a brief dip, the stock is up higher than before the news.

GLF which went from the $3 range to over $7 within a week or so is coming back down and is now at around 5.3. I just bought back in with a little nibble. If it goes back up to 6-6.5 I'll sell this little portion and if it keeps going down I'll start increasing my buys in theory all the way back down to where it was if it ever gets there. I'm just riding these ups and downs.

I'm rather overextended into MU and TWTR and I've decided to just buy my way out instead of selling at a loss so have put in some pretty big buy orders if they drop just to lower my average 'cost' and hopefully can exit out of them soon enough.

Then there are others I'm just itching to put more money into but they're higher than I want to get in at. AAPL, TSLA, DIS, NLY (that yield!).

No div but HHC seems to move around quite a bit. I mean it was at 120-130 not too long ago and last month or two I was buying it hard at 90 or so. I'm playing around with buying/selling between 99/100-104/5. It's only a 5% spread but seems to move between those two every few days and I'm making a few bucks here and there beyond my main holding of it.

Analysts are morons. When a GT4 P car driving buddy and my Atlanta detailer (who already has an S) were talking about lining up to order one a few weeks ago, I knew it'd be pretty big.

It's pretty obvious Tesla will mop the floor in that segment. The competition is the Leaf, the Volt and Bolt, the i3, 500e, the plug-in Prius, etc. I think they'll also poach a bunch of people looking at ICE cars in that price range.

Mercedes has the B-class electric with a mighty range of 87 miles and a price tag north of $40K.  While I like the look of the hatchback B-class due to it being all over Europe, I think Tesla is at least saying, improve and lower the price or we will beat you at your own game at least in the electric car segment.
