  • Position Sizing And Averaging Down [View instapost]
    Ah, yes, another reason why this Instablog is a keeper,(in its whole, including comments) well worth using as a reference point for the newer among us.

    Good work Oberman !

  • Position Sizing And Averaging Down [View instapost]
    Oberman,
    Just read through again, both article AND comments. A great tool to recommend to newbies and wannabies....so many of whom have no strategy of their own...and no idea how to build one. I will be referring many people here to this Instablog I'm sure.

    A couple of questions: #1. Could you please expound on the use, or not, of stops? I know your general position on this subject (and you probably can guess mine...grin) but I think it would benefit many newer folk to know your reasoning when it comes to using stops.

    #2. Going underwater. We know from your avatar you have no trouble breathing down there...but some people do. Is there a trick to it? Does your ease come from knowing your stocks cold, inside and out? Or is it just a faith in your thesis?

    Thank you once again for such a clear, concise explanation of your swing strategy, plus the answers to the comments.

    Very well done Sir,

    PC

    Now that I have had time to read this Instablog...I must commend you again. Very clear and concise. Excellent for both the newbie and struggling wannabe. I'm sure I'll be assimilating (and quoting) parts of it in the future.

    Once more...a hearty Thank You !

    Well done. Simple language and gambling analogies (do you ever play against Einhorn?) that everyone can understand.

    Now that we have more info (and less fear of the HFT boogie man...grin), let the game begin!

    Cheers...and yes...have a great season.

    PS, would like to know if you, Mark, actually wrote this for SA, or if it was "excerpted" by SA editors per your profile page. TIA

  • Valuable Insights: What, Where, And Why [View instapost]
    I wonder if #2 included an agreement on future posting on SA by VI? It appears VI has been "Einhorned". But, of course, we are not privilege to that info.

  • Marani Brands CEO Discusses Dividend, 14,000% Stock Growth, Domestic and International Distribution With Donald Baillargeon of MoneyTV [View article]
    Hey bd4uandu....nice tip. Got in it from .02

    Also agree with you that just because a stock has a very low price doesn't mean it should be ignored. We worker bees have to start somewhere.

    Cheers and thanks.

    hmm...you sound like a man of integrity. Wish more people had it. Best of luck to you...although you probably don't need "luck". Cheers.

  • PLUG - A Perfect Storm Of Price Manipulation [View instapost]
    Mr Dan....(channeling Forrest Gump here) ...I got the sense the author didn't care for "Pump and Dump" any more than "Short and Distort'. They both turn investing into trading. Good for traders, not so good for investors. But this is the world we live in. Now I need to go find a box of chocolates......grin

    Excellent article CE123. Also, good comment John Foley. I was not aware of the term "Short and Distort". Thank you both.

    Good article. Thank you. I am one that will stay away, after having made money on a previous short position. I agree with much of what you say, especially about The Muskman. Cheers.

  • Under Armour skates past Sochi controversy [View news story]
    How long had they practiced in the suits in question? Sounded like sourer grapes in the first place. Plank and Company are the good guys...glad they weren't punished.

  • How I Retired At 45 [View instapost]
    One must understand...SA is primarily about investing.
    http://bit.ly/14XkOO5

    That is the truth. In the words of Eli himself. Listen for the true words. It's about investing....way over trading....or any spirituality. That said, Eli is a hell of a great guy. He's real, in a true sense of the word.

    So, if your looking for spirituality here at SA....you have to sneak around. Its here. But not overtly. Thus Micheal's having to submit his article as an Instablog. No problem.

    Come to StockTalks for the real spirituality of SA. We are inclusive. If you have actually authored an article here on SA, we won't hold that against you.
