  • To Invest Or Not? [View article]
    I bought 600 shares, not 1000 at $160, I previously had 400. Made a mistake in my comments!

    The point is this: your fundamental story could be perfect but you must trade in sync with the market both in the long or short side. If the market is not validating your story just wait until it does, if not you can enter extremely early to the position, understand my point ?
    Do you think that your fundamental analysis alone will make you over perform the market ? You should read all the fundamentals you want but at the end you are a slave of the "tape", as Paul Tudor Jones said. I recommend you to study his methodology .

    Just be careful of shorting this stock if the overall market keeps strong. I hope you do not end like my friend Whitney Tilson with NFLX :)

    You can say whatever you want but the one who bought 1000 shares at $160 2 weeks ago is me.
    In the end is all about the P&L!

    You make me laugh. You do not know who I am and my track record and think I am a novice. Keep thinking that your fundamental analysis alone will outperform the market. Wake up, do you think that fundamentals alone are enought to make outstanding returns ?. If you think that way you have no clue what YOU are doing. Please read the book Market Wizards, read how they operate and think. How many of them mixes fundamentals and technicals ? lot of them. I make single trades of 150k (see my blog where I prove it), which are less than 10% of my personal portfolio and have a 3 sharpe ratio which is outstanding. How much do you manage ?

    When you buy momentum you buy a stock at a specific price that you know in advance if the stock goes above that price with above than average volume a material trend could start. This could sound strange but you should learn some things related to technical analysis. You work with 2% stop losses, not more than that. 60% downside ? are you crazy ? I never loss more than 2% my initial position.
    I bought CRM at $160, stop loss at $156 but my reward profit is above 10%, so I am risking 2% to make 5,10 or more%. I am still holding CRM. The stock went up from 160 to 170 in days. The key is buying THE day the uptrend starts.
    Check my blog:
    They key is combining both fundamentals AND technicals. Not fibonacci, oscilators and all those %%$#$. I am talking about specific technical tools HF uses. Top performing hedge funds do this all the time, fundamentals+technicals.

    You can give all the logic and reasoning you want but the market does not care about what you or me thinks.
    I am long this stock, bought 600 shares at $160 (breakout price) and now I am making money in the long side.
    When the market turns bearish I will short.
    Trade in sync with the market. Nobody cares what you think.

    Do not invest in Arg equities at these leves, wait for a 30/40% avg decline which will be the support levels od 2002 and 2008.

    Arg equities have not bottomed yet, wait for them to trade at 2002/2008 price levels

  • Phillips 66: Strong Portfolio Of Assets And Increasing Growth [View article]
    Yes it is my blog but the alerts come from a software that scans volume, price, volatility among other things. After that I check its fundamentals. I always invest mixing both concepts. I discovered PSX as my software alerted me and then I checked its fundamentals.

  • Undervalued Companies To Buy In This Market [View article]
    Hi, I agree with you. ALL companies are affected by macro uncertainty but some Companies are more affected than others. For example, Coca Cola (KO) is less affected than Cisco.
    Inside the tech sector, Apple is less affected that Cisco too.

    KO, AAPL and CSCO are affected if macro gets very bad but not will be affected equal.

  • Analyzing Bruce Berkowitz's Top 5 Holdings [View article]
    One thing is how the business grows and other thing is the Company's financial risk.
    A business can be growing -100% for "x" number of years but if it has zero debt and huge assets to support operations the business and financial risk is strong.
    One thig is growth and other thing is balance sheet strenght.
