    Opened a half position in $CBI at $67.50. Immediately dropped to mid-$66 range. Good start!

    • John R. Conway: be prepared to average in some more, but this dip is a good buying opportunity

    • betnman: Wishing I bought a full position right about now. I suppose its not too late, but I'll wait a couple days and see where it goes.

        Sold $MO at $40.15 today (bought at $34.30 in Aug 2012) and bought $BX at $27.85. Busy week!

            Mad at myself for buying $UA at $48 yesterday. Should have waited for it to drift down to its 200 DMA. Guess I'll be averaging down!

                Why the sudden drop in $PM? Did I miss something??

                    $P seems to go up 3% a day and it makes 0% sense to me.

                            Considering scooping some $BX here at $21.75 (down over 3% today). Also right around it's 50 day moving average. Any thoughts?

                            • DAG1996: @NLT Obviously to each his own, but "staging in" for long-term investors is generally averaging down in 3-4 buys over weeks or even months.

                                Is a close under $400 today for $AAPL a no-brainer sign to sell?

                                    Picked up some $STAG @ $21.35, down ~12.5% from highs, 5.6% yield. Rapid growth REIT focused on single-tenant industrial properties.

                                        Got in $LULU at $68.50 (currently) the low of the day. Love buying good companies on big negative overreactions.

                                            $MJNA -- been watching this stock for a while. Too bad I didn't get in sooner!

                                                Watching $WFM here -- sitting at (or just below) it's 50 & 200 day moving averages. Small divi, but love the growth potential! Any thoughts?
