Dollar killed $HAR. Who wants global businesses? But $HAR is growing and leading #ConnectedCar and #IoT. Backlog = 4.76x market cap.

$JWN Blake Nordstrom: off-price biz 12% total growth and comp of 2.4. "We're gaining market share."

$JWN Jamie Nordstrom: relative strength in "strong" merchandise categories. But across-the-board weakness. Not seasonal impact. Stinks.

Watch for a $KATE bottom here. Thursday's (11/5) earnings release a make or break.
Yeh, even my $JWN didn't work so well. But maybe the sentiment will turn around in the intermediate term.
Hoping so. I am only in $M

$LC reliance on institutional investors was overrated. It did went up to 36% (vs. 31% 3Q14) though.
10/30/15
Cabeza Howe
This is the right time to be bullish on $LC. Marketing leverage/brand awareness, improving margin, and much brighter 2016 prospects.

We $BAC shareholders are smiling today. I didn't forget to add to my $BAC position a month ago. I'm now hoping for a $ALLY rally too.

Long $ALLY at $20.16 avg. price. Would pick up more were it not for the coming earnings release (potential volatility). Past +/0 surprises.

With $VNM at 3.2% premium to NAV and touching 200EMA, I'm beginning to take profit. But I believe its downtrend is over.

$VNM W-Formation. Along with fundamentals it might have bottomed. Risk: Fed rate rise triggers fund outflow, mitigated by ECB/BOJ QEs.

VN-Index winning streak 4th day +1.68% but $VNM already at +2.43% premium to NAV. $VNM seems trying to be leading the rally. Let's see.
Love the V-shaped bottoms.

How long/deep Sell in May will last in VN-Index? With Vietnam April PMI showing highest spike in its 4-year history, buy $VNM on pullbacks.
I bought more VNM this AM @ 17.12. Seems like there might be some support in the 16.50ish to 17ish level.
Savvy move. Agree with you. Would buy any dips again. Irrationality won't last forever. Damn SBV for not engaging on QE of some sorts :<

VN-Index -3.08% in vetnam, driving $VNM down today. Vetnam has an illiquid market. VN-Index higher in May in its 4/15 years of trading.

Nice reversals today: $VNM $XIN $BAC. Long all three.
4/16/15
Cabeza Howe
$BAC price reversal looking good. Regulatory trouble behind, cost reduction to boost earnings, great play on interest rate hike. No brainer.
4/16/15
Unless interest rate hikes do not come until 2018-2020. What then? Hold for the dividend?
In that case I would be doing both swing trade and hold a core position on it.
