Heh... I'm only down 41% now.
Only down 10% for me...but the future looks bright
I'm down over 50% thanks to the dilution right after I bought....but my time frame on this one was always 5-10 years. I'm going to hold until Phase 3 is complete or belly up.
Wonder how much Carl Icahn lost on the AAPL earnings? Couldn't be 8% of his $3B investment but I'd assume it is close to $100M give of take.
APL.... I'm so fucked tomorrow. Fuck
This stock just can't win holy hell.
I'm off to a really bad start this year.
BAC down 5%, IAI down 4.5%, 401k down 3.5%.
And to top it off, fucking AAPL tomorrow is going to rape my net worth figure.
Should have sold my SWHC when it was above $15.
Going 100% equities is the risk. My bonds are up 1% this year so far which is currently sitting at roughly 17% of my portfolio. Interesting is the Roth account that houses extended market and REITs. It is actually break even so far which I thought was slightly odd but I haven't dug too deep into the holdings of each fund.
I remember following a guy on Twitter that would just play options on AAPL and post his positions. Dude was raking it in in 2012. Don't follow as closely now but he seems to still do pretty good when I see his transactions. He never holds into earnings though.
For sure. I have a big risk appetite. No bonds whatsoever for me.
Bonds carry plenty of risk. From a practical standpoint I truly dislike bonds, especially when purchased at a historically low interest rate. I will oversimplify for comparison sake; I bought both corp long term bonds and Altria (among many other investments) in 2011. The bonds paid out 5% and so did Altria. I paid $26/Sh for Altria, which has raised it's dividend twice or three times since then, it now pays 7% on the principle investment without considering shares reinvested, the bond fund reduced it's payout to 4.25% and I sold it in early 2013 for a modest profit,
My brother bought Altria in 2007, it spun off Philip Morris int. and Kraft which then spun off Mondelez int. The total payments he receives equate to a 9% payout on his principle.
I'm off to a bad start this year too...
DLTR down 12.22%, CTL down 10.33%, C (Citigroup) down 9.57%, AN down 4.54%, CELG down 4.48%, AMZN down 1.16%, SJNK down, CJS down, etc. etc.
It's still January, 11 months to go.
He just grabbed some more this morning! Owns about $4 billion worth of $AAPL now... dang!
I wonder how one goes about putting in a $500M order for shares that does not set off buzzers? "Do you see that guy with a 1M share order for AAPL?" "Must be Carl again!"
Buffett has a delayed reporting deal with the SEC...
