    • westcoastinvests: Funny that Chines doesn't write "EMC! LoL", apparently only other people losing money is funny to him.

    • bradyc: EMC is a good buy here, HPQ... meh, not so much LOL
      5/24/12
    • westcoastinvests: yeah not saying EMC not a good play, just the silliness of laughing about a stock that's down and is someone else's pain

    • neobliviscar: Isn't this the one Chines33 keeps pitching? Heck of a chart on it. If he is to be believed, he is long a healthy dose of this?
      5/24/12
    • westcoastinvests: if he is to be believed, ha nice to see someone else is paying attention too
      5/24/12
    • neobliviscar: I don't have my teeth out for him as you do, but he's thrown a few whoopers across the plate such as his buys of ESV in the 37s last Oct.

    • Brandon Gibbs: westcoast, just curious, why so much hatred of chines?
      5/24/12
    • detto: A monkey could have thrown a few whoopers across the plate on OCT. everything was buyable....
      5/24/12
    • neobliviscar: detto, that was just the easiest example. He could claim they were typos (hey, I keep a large portfolio... I screw up buys too), but he...

    • westcoastinvests: BG, because he misleads people by overstating his results and in my opinion promotes poor strategies.
      5/24/12
    • neobliviscar: ..stuck to his buys. He doesn't "follow" anyone, but does treat it like a job. I don't doubt he is a trader- just how much is real vs paper?
      5/24/12
    • detto: Those who don't want to feel the heat of the kitchen should stay away Chines is a teenager I just feel sorry for him.
      5/24/12
    • westcoastinvests: I will admit I am curious how old Chines is and where he lives?
      5/24/12
    • detto: What adult says "haters" as much as him? The only people i know that do that are teenage girls....

    • Brandon Gibbs: i think there are many people on SA that can be misleading, i just ask why not ignore and follow the folks who matter in that case?
      5/24/12
    • Brandon Gibbs: i follow both you and chines, you each have good and bad qualities. you bash chines, chines doesnt disclose all losses. no one is perfect
      5/24/12
    • westcoastinvests: BG, I agree with you and I should probably just ignore him, but I do view him as the most misleading poster on site, so hard to just ignore
      5/24/12
    • Brandon Gibbs: i hear ya, but focus on his good ideas, will make you much happier westcoast. let the gullible traders learn the hard way when trades blowup
      5/24/12
    • Brandon Gibbs: just my opinion, would rather see your good trade ideas than your dislike of traders
      5/24/12
    • westcoastinvests: BG, you've convinced me thanks. I'll admit Ive decided to ignore him before,only to get sucked back in by more dishonesty,new leaf today
      5/24/12
    • neobliviscar: BG ~ well said.
      5/24/12
    • Perkins Cove: ^ ditto
      5/24/12
    • Brandon Gibbs: westcoast, just trying to knock down walls so we can all work together. whats everybody looking for tomorrow? long, short, neutral?
      5/24/12
    • neobliviscar: BG, unless Europe manages a pratfall or U.Mich number gets the HFT bots to slam the mrkt lower, I expect further sideways to slight up move.
      5/24/12
    • Brandon Gibbs: same here, im pulling like +.4% everyday battling long/short back and forth. annoying
      5/24/12
    • neobliviscar: If I understand your +.4%, that is > than me. Mon was one of my best days in years after bad last week, but still only +.125% per diem avg.

    • Brandon Gibbs: LGF gave me a nice bump (largest holding, i know sounds crazy), along with timing of SDS
      5/24/12
    • neobliviscar: I skimped on our May SDS hedge, and it cost us 24k. I also mistimed SLV, so still bailing on that one. Knocked WMT, PEP, ADP for solid wins.
      5/24/12
    • Brandon Gibbs: ive had my eye on PEP and KO for some time, what made you choose PEP?
      5/24/12
    • neobliviscar: Nothing more than I thought it was undervalued in March. I seem to have a feel for it, but no sense of feel for KO. At $73-74, I'd be short.
