  • Coca Cola Enterprises Is An Avoid For Value Investors [View article]
    Would 'why' change the valuation?

  • Value Oriented Investors Should Consider Amgen [View article]
    The assumption of price remaining the same has an undertone. It suggests that if valuation levels get better the stock price will increase.

    From your data I have a couple issues:

    1. Analysts have no idea what will happen 5 years from now.
    2. The current PE is not 14x.

    :-)

  • Aggressive Value Oriented Investors Should Consider Aruba [View article]
    The valuation analysis takes that into account. We don't need to talk about it. You clearly find value in the talk, but I find more value in the numbers. The valuation observations I have offered include not only HPQ related but also Earnings related impacts on valuation. Look closely.

    That's not correct. The HPQ news is not important to valuation observations. Another way of looking at this article might be to use the valuation observations presented here to consider whether or not HPQ sees value in the stock too. Takeover rumors do not play a role in valuation though...

  • Sell Apple And Put Up Your Defenses [View article]
    Actually it is a little more than that after the past week, we were long UWM, but still it is close yes. The strategy is not great because it is blowing the doors off of the market in the up years, it actually simply keeps pace pretty much, it is blowing the doors off of the market because it can also do what it does in the up years when the market falls as well, and because the market got crushed in 2008 the out performance is ridiculous.

    The question i posed to you was not 'can you find a strategy that has done better over the past year' but instead can you find one that has done better since December 2007? So far, on every count, the answers I have received have either been in the form of silence, or no.

    Interestingly though, in forums like this, very few actually care to investigate. Like you seem to, most want to poke holes, when they should actually take a close look at WHY it works so well.

    If the markets do come under severe pressure again that WHY is going to make a big difference, but the truth is people only really care AFTER they have lost money from market declines, not before the declines come.

  • Sell Apple And Put Up Your Defenses [View article]
    Yes that is reasonable.

    Note my references to defenses.

    However, I find the best defense is usually also played when you do not have a bias on either market direction or the direction of a particular stock, and if you maintain positions you often also maintain that underlying bias.

    The answer to your question is yes, hedging works as a good defense, but small gains also lead to long term success and as much as balancing risk can be good I also like shorting the market when short signals occur so I am not only mitigating risk but also making money.

    Thanks, your comment was the best so far on this thread...

    It is private Waldo. That's why you only get to see the returns :-)

  • Sell Apple And Put Up Your Defenses [View article]
    How have we been doing, well, we have the #1 performing strategy on the market since December 2007 :-)

    That is, no one I know has shown me anything that can beat it.

    Look, I did not see all that fake money coming, so what you are saying is correct, but that does not mean we were not making money. Just because we move from buy and hold to proactive does not mean that we missed anything, but instead we have actually done far better.

    Check this out and let me know if you know any strategy that can beat it (note the inception date is before the credit crisis, not after):

    I find it interesting that no one appreciates the accuracy of the trading call and that none of you likes the idea of securing gains. If you listen to what i said, clearly I said it with more detail to clients, you made a great return in 2 short days.

    Has everyone gotten married to this stock? Wow....

  • We Expect The Russell 2000 To Outperform [View article]
    We secured about 8% from the trade in 2 days.

    I have no interest in holding to January. That is not the business we are in...

    Don't over think trades. This is a trade, not an indicator of some forthcoming cycle.

  • Buy Signals Triggered Today In Apple [View article]
    Warning from the US Treasury:

    The most interesting thing about this article is its comparison to the other article I wrote for SA today. The number of clicks are 18:1 in favor of the AAPL article, and no one seems to care about the warning from the US Treasury.
