    Agree on (LUV). While not quite a channel the behavior suggests some predictability is there. I made the right choice to sell when did but I am seeking a decent re-entry point. There was obviously some big player doing a shuck and jive on Monday- Couldn't follow a pattern but sure was a load of bucks moving that stock. Maybe a big-time pump and dump. I watched like a hawk and bailed at the right time.

    It COULD make an up move but it just might be a head fake as the EMA200 still trends downward. Right now they're all (airlines) jittery with WTI prices causing knee-jerk activity.

    If there is any upward move tomorrow I just might bite and write.

    Sold my position in (LUV) near the top of a weird spike that started at the open at $42.35, almost a straight line to $43.75 and right back down to $42.75. Pretty good spike in volume as it was finishing the day. Decided to take a small profit at $43.50 and wait for a further drop to re-enter.

    My (LUV) CALLs that I was short became dust on Friday as did the (AAPL) $128s that I was short. Almost had to scramble as the price was just below $128. They did print above $128 today for a while.

    Been following (REED). My wife says their ginger ale is the best! Tried to find other stuff that was in the article but the manager at RiteAid just looked at me when I asked about the deal we read about. Reed dropped $.13 in regular trades and another $.08 AH so far. I believe there is opportunity here- Timing is everything.

    GE just announced a huge buyback of stock and a major reorganization of the company-

    The link that follows is to an article written for the American Association of Individual Investors (AAII). The article is the best I have ever seen discussing the pros and cons of buybacks. A lengthy piece that explores everything good and bad.

    I highly recommend it for any individual investor concerned about the value of their stock when buybacks occur.

    Re: (CPST)

    "Should have been done earlier IMO."

    Should have just cleaned house period- None of the top dogs even had more than a token share of stock anyway-

    Shows what kind of confidence they have in the company- Throwing them all out would be a good start.

    Did some TA and operational review on (REED)-

    50 day EMA is at $5.80 with the stock right now at $5.35. Volume is anything but exuberant with only three days over the last several months where it got over 100K. The biggest pop was 29 and 30 March where it plunged from $7.00 down to the mid $5s- Good for one 300K day (30 March) after reporting an $.08 loss for the fourth quarter when analysts expected a one cent loss. Don't know what happened there- Maybe coincidental with the potential water issues?

    Operating efficiency and their balance sheet look good. Both gross and net margins have dropped off recently though, with inventory down and receivables up- maybe as a result of filling Rite Aid stores? Just a guess.

    Looks to me like they are a pretty well run company operating right at break-even with some real opportunity ahead. Might be worth a toe in the water based upon the Rite Aid deal and the fact that Maya's calls are generally right on-

    (;-)

    Is that ambivalence or dedication?

    Many thanks for the supplemental info and TA thoughts on (REED). Your feelings are usually right on point!

    As you know I will dig out what I can and give you my feelings and whether I am considering starting a position.

    Recent soda stats show that soda consumption has dropped for ten consecutive years- Diet soda dropping more than the sugared variety.

    Seems so called "energy drinks" and hydrators like Gatorade are trending now.

    Re: (W)

    Yeah I saw the analyst improvement but pretty much figured it would be taken in stride,

    virtually anytime a lock-up ends stocks go crazy for a few days. This is indeed an anomaly that there wasn't even a ripple. I do find it curious. No sour grapes just scratching my head.
