Wow. Nice short-covering-fueled-rally in $TWTR. Wonder if the shorts will panic and close it up 10%+

Saw $AAPL store tonight - long line for the iPhone still. Guy in store said they have constantly been mobbed since release.
9/28/13
true. just an incidental obs that even after their initial announcement, sales of new iPhones have been very strong.
9/28/13
Observations like this work sparingly. What is the 5S to 5C sales ratio? Is your store representative of all stores? Nothing new here.

Great run on $MT in past month - up about 15% (11 to 12.7). Now over the 50 DMA. 200 DMA is about 14.4, so hopefully it will run up to that.
7/25/13
It's funny, the last time you posted about $MT going 15% up, it was the start of a 15% down. If now will be the same, you are a prophet :)
7/25/13
True! Fortunately, I'm patient. Added on the way down. Up 3% since that post last week. Did sell 20% of my position at $13.10 just in case

Don't look now, but $MT is up 15.9% in the last month! Playing catch up to the market. Expect out performance to continue.

I don't understand. $CLF is up or down 5% every day.

If it helps, two top rated analysts,Cowen Anthony Ruzzuto(80%success rate) &Sal Tharani $GS (60%success rate) rec Sell & Hold respectively

Took little profit today on some $AAPL bought day after earnings (near $400). Used June $450 options, so up 100%+. Will re-enter on pullback
awesome! can i ask you what's your broker?

Look at daily price action on $MT! Opened lower near 12.10 & steady line up, now near even at 12.45. There are buyers back in this name.
chug chug chug goes the MT train...

Based on $CLF earnings - I think this one is pretty oversold!! EPS 0.66/share. Seaborn ore price 148, 3% increase yoy
4/24/13
stock up 9% AH now. hopefully this has bottomed, and we can see $30 again by year end.
6/10/13
Yeah - but they were at $18.10 on April 24 when I posted this - they are at $17.80 now. So, basically unchanged. They did travel up to $23.5
6/10/13
I do still like them longer term, but there has not been the rotation into materials that i would have expected in a rising market

CFO re $AAPL buyback: "We will buy shares under this authorization beginning this month."
4/23/13
Vegas Ben - did you divide by days through the end of 2015?
4/23/13
don't companies alter their buyback plans all the time? just sayin

$AAPL WHOOPS! Tim Cook talked about the product cycle in "Fall 2013 and throughout 2014"! That's much more delayed then expected
4/23/13
Tim...." repeat in front of the mirror, at this time, there is no correlation between smaller cell phone screen size and brain cancer"

$AAPL eps $10.09. Revenue beat. China good #s. Low June guidance. But, extra 50 billion buyback and 15% divy increase.
4/23/13
I think it'll easily recover $425 on this news and should see $450 based on buyback and divy alone within the month.
4/23/13
I expect some more value and divy funds to get in now that AAPL has shown it will use its fiscal muscle to reward shareholders.
4/23/13
XRTrader
Added small # of $AAPL calls for June/July on hope that earnings release will cause trend change or at least bounce to $450 level again
4/17/13

Interesting price action today on $CLF on a bad tape - it reversed higher near the end of the day. Will watch - still only have 25% position
4/17/13
Want to make sure and add more if/when this bottoms.

What a move for $MSFT! it NEVER moves like this! Wow.
4/9/13
What's causing this pop today? The samsung phone news?
Pls place a link to the samsung news you think is moving the stock
4/9/13
XRTrader
Nice little move on $MT today! Maybe money is rotating back into materials? if so these have a lot of room left on the upside!
I think most of these material movers(today), have to do with that better than expected $AA report. Everything is popping.
4/9/13
Energy. Yeah - i agree but its strange, because AA is not popping nearly as much as the ones that are supposedly popping on the AA news!

Steel stocks $X and $MT near/at 2009 crisis lows - is this warranted??!?! $MT even has a forward divy near 2% and good cash flows!
4/2/13
The answer is no. I thought I was done buying MT in the 13s, but got more shares today. If it goes lower, I'll scramble for more cash.
3/28/13

If there's anything good to say about $MT technically: it dropped below $13 each of past 2 trading days, only to recover & close above $13
3/26/13

Anyone have any good option trades to play $BBRY for earnings? Options look a little pricey....maybe a call spread?
3/26/13
Time to play Options was when the stock price went under $13! Still, try and get something for 2014 or 2015 before it gets more expensive!

Posted new article on $MT today - looks like a good buy at these levels. Some risk to downside with current European turmoil.
As a long term position, I think it's a great entry point. Beaten down, but globally and vertically integrated.
3/26/13
Energy - yeah, I agree. Largest steel maker in Brazil. Huge asian supplier. Huge auto footprint. Lots of good businesses in this company.
3/22/13
XRTrader
Any buyers of $MT here? Down to levels it bottomed at June 2012 (double bottom?). Debt levels dropping. Outlook improving. Worst behind us?
Worth watching, took small position $PBR watching $VALE.

$AAPL good price action n down market, & 6 new "higher lows" in row. Is floating up! Resting to break 50 DMA. http://bit.ly/10qcSjB

$AAPL staying down today. Seems to have an almost perfect inverse correlation to the S&P recently.
3/20/13
This an issue w/ the company not managing expectations & not interacting w/ media. They couldve been more specific at last call and GS conf.
Well, the funny thing is that if they don't miss the stock may rally! So many analysts have warned for them, unlike preceding qtrs.
3/19/13

Great $ADBE earnings! Surprised that $AAPL has not made a 25 billion cash bid for this company (~$50/share). Nice addition for AAPL.
3/19/13
Just confirmed that AAPL hired Adobe's CTO
3/19/13
jmok - yeah, i thought that was a nice hire by AAPL.

Added $AAPL $460 weekly calls at $2 on this retrace to $450 - lotto ticket.
3/19/13
Well - that was quick. Closed $460 calls at 2.89 (bought at 2.09) for 38%.
3/19/13
Nice! I was about to follow you on that.

$AAPL: GS believes Apple will sell 175 mil iPhones 2013 & 251 million in 2014...works out 2 sales growth of 28% this yr & 43% for next yr
3/14/13
Overall event was incremental positive for AAPL - Samsung down about 1.5% currently post event.
3/15/13
Here's a Gizmodo review, compares S4 to HTC, overall bad rating. Will b interested to c how affects $AAPL. http://bit.ly/16w62vq

Decent $AAPL price action heading into last hour - shorts unable to push stock down after mid-day trouble. And, sellers look exhausted.
well, up $5+ in pre market. So no signs of tanking as a response to S4 then.
3/15/13
Yeah. Sitting just below the 20EMA now.

Strange day for $AAPL - open and drop nearly $5, low volume upswing of nearly $10 (to +$5), followed by drift lower to close flat on day.
3/13/13
Retail buying on lows. Traders pushing stock around at support levels. No volume buying. Seems like market is waiting for news.
3/13/13
It should break 420 support soon and marches its way for the real bottom in 350's.
3/11/13
XRTrader
$AAPL broke above couple important trend lines & support levels today (depending which / what time frame u watch). Possible gap up in AM.
3/12/13
We have tobe careful a lot of head fake. I stop selling call to average my price. i donĀ“t want to miss the junp after the capital allocation
3/12/13
I agree with that cervajo. The big move will be news driven, and could occur after hours. No reason to be stuck on the wrong side.
3/11/13

Amazing: You can sell the $AAPL Jan 2014 $400 puts for $36. Putting u in the stock for break-even of $366 next January. Nice risk/reward.

GS note pointing out "Like $AAPL niche at the top end of the market"

and "Tim Cook's investments in the production system will pay off in... both fattened margins and shortened development cycles"

Interesting Doug Kass comment on $AAPL, and misleading CNBC article. http://bit.ly/Z9zc09
3/6/13
Your right That article has absolutely nothing to do with Kass (the criminal's) comments. I hope CNBC gets whats coming to them. What a joke
Yip, outrageous misrepresentation there. Also, they say Kas worries appl has lost it's "first-mover advantage". Appl never depended on that
