  • Is Weatherford Still A Buy? [View article]
    WFT is due for a turn-a-around! November,13 & 14/2014, saw two-good days of above average volume...Its mostly due to Halliburton merger/take over bid for Baker Hughes! It might test the 25 MA, or consolidate their. The next resistance levels it has to push through is 50 & 200 day MA, it could very well do that if it continues to get new momentum! I like this stock, I owned for a while until it flashed a big sale signal... I might enter again on new support of 25, or 50 MA with a scout keeping a close QQ on the dollar's move (UUP)!

  • Silicon Image Will Add A Quarter To Your Money [View article]
    @ nguaque--Hmm, like I really care! I don't do fundamentals, I was paying the author a compliment on how well I thought the article was written and you must've read something into what I was conveying! I'm a swing trader...I trade the break outs (either direction) up or down, fundamentals are useless to me, I could care less frankly!

    Dollar up, commodities down, dollar down, commodities up! I think its quite possible that PQ will visit its pass lows made back in 2008, of $2.51-$3.26!, with that being said this stock has been in a sideways and range bound every since 2008! If the dollar was to collapse and gold explode, PQ might change direction, or they where bought-out, correct if I'm wrong , but with the low prices in oil and PQ's geographical location isn't it costing them more money to pull oil out of the ground and putting them in a pinch?

  • Conversant Will Rise With The Digital Advertising Tide [View article]
    I'm just looking for a break out on price, but it could be a negative one given the investigation, and like you stated the fact that the board took the first-deal thrown their way, rather shopping the company, or looking for suitors is paramount and the next shoe too drop will be earning and it will be interesting hear what management has to say--Thanks Mr. Schulte!

  • PetroQuest: Click 'Buy More Shares' Now [View article] the Riddler would say, "Riddle me this?" What goes up must surely come down, but when and who's to know with all this-financial engineering of the market's going-on! I was and I'm sure of this V-shape rally were experiencing, but where are we headed after the November 2014 Elections? Uncharted territory, with the (DJX-thanks largely to Visa's weighting) making a one-year new high on Friday (10/31/14) of 173.96, and other ETF's and indices coming close to taking-out their previous highs (SPY, XLF, IWM, IYT) made before the market correction, is this a "Trick or Treat? If new money comes in some say this rally could continue into the end of the year especially if we see new money coming into the market with good volume and the above named ETF's making new highs, and maybe a hint of more (QE) or something of the same brought to you by non-other than The Fed!

    @ Seeking betta- Buy and hold to me is like, dead money if the security isn't performing or beating its bench marks, unless of course you're a value investor or manager thats using some form of quantitative approach to tactical asset allocation or timing...Let's it face man, this isn't the same market of old going back to the '40 & 50's when manufacturing was booming and we were selling our products to the world and unions were respected and a good thing to be apart of, but if you're young and have longevity on your side you want the market to crater and invest through the ups and downs for 25-30 years and hopefully come out on top... trade in the short time and look for good investments for the long term, when the market rolls-over!

    @ seeking betta-(SNAPS) My bad, I meant XLF, XLF is The ETF for banks!

    XLB is The ETF for Basic materials I see the following companies inside this

    Part Of Fund summary--The index includes companies from the following industries: chemicals; metals & mining; paper & forest products; containers & packaging; and construction materials.

    Chemicals are a good bet, metals & mining, are usually good in a bad stock market environment! I'd be careful with because their a commodity and when the U.S. Dollar, or (UUP) is strong or up, commodities are down unless we're in a really good strong economy and everything is performing well! You can profit off them, but make sure you place your stops to protect your profit if you're not looking to go long, or a buy & hold type! Paper & forest products are commodities, but they tend to do well and are consistent producers as they're land-managed and renewable, i.e timber companies! Container & packaging and construction material...go figure? I don't know enough about them, but I'd say they're cyclicals--look at the economy construction's a drag!

    Ahh The Spy Hedge is Killing you is it? That's because the SPY's snapping back with a V-shape pattern, and the shorts and institutions are buying The either have to set your stop and risk getting stopped-out, or swim with the current=by The SPY, but this is all volatility! Tomorrow (2/29/14) the market could be down The Fed (Fomc) will be wrapping up their two-day meeting and they might end "QE" but I think they've shown their hand, because from what I understand "Debt is still on their books" The fed's been string us along-for avery long time and low interest raise is what's kept this market going!

    The market might react negatively if they hint at raising interest which case risk is still on, but Obama & Dems, aren't going to let the market crater before the November 2014 Elections, The way I understand it is The Fed has to Keep The Ten year Note ( CBOE Interest Rate 10 Year T No (^TNX)) below 3% to keep "making bonds look butt-ugly and keep money flowing into the stocks-(institutional and foreign money)!

    You'd probably have better luck shorting/hedging The "SPY" after The 2014 Election when all hell breaks loose and it rolls over, interest rates and gold shoot up--you'll know before I tell you! Here's a hint: wait for the stocks to break below all key support 25/50 moving averages...most importantly The 200 Moving Average with heavy volume, and don't try to short anything on lite volume because the stock can be whip-saw all over the place! When the time is right I'm going to hedge The QQQ's and buy (PSQ) and The Bio-techs (BIS) but you have to wait for Them to break below The 200 MA, unless you're seasoned, as for PQ, I'm not buying it until it get's above its 200 MA, or I see new money and momentum push it up with continued heavy volume, which usually means a break-out!

    @ mapoda- glad I could be of some help! I know very little about Europe, except when their economy is "rocked" The American and other global economies feel the ripple in the pond effect! I'll learn, I'm just trying to increase my knowledge in economics and technical analysis, or using (technical indicators leading & lagging).
    Its my opinion that Seeking Alpha a "great community" because you have people from all walks of life and experience-levels! That diversity is important because you have literally thousands and thousands of minds and eyes looking at different areas of the market and using different strategies! That being said; be careful in (GLOP, GLOG, GMLP, GLNG, DLNG, TGP) because these stocks could make a lower-low, or snap back, and they might just make that double-bottom, or w-shape! I'm still learning and I don't know what will happen after the elections in November all I can say is hedge your positions and follow the "BEST"! I like Mercenary Trader and some, or most of the people I follow! Happy Trails-happy trading!

    @ mapodga-

    Thursday was no miracle--either you know or you don't, The Feds been stringing us along for quite sometimes now! 5-10% correction trigger computer buying for banks and institutions whom are front-runners! The short got squeezed as a result of all of the above! you can make money in a market that's being propped-up by QE to a degree, because the ten-year note is forced down and bonds look but-ugly compared to stocks, and that's the sole purpose of The Fed forcing every one into the stock market but to do so on a continual basis would be futile at some point! QE prevents markets from going through their normal correcting phase. Europe is our house of pain and you can't control them or The Fed's language! So you have to participate in the market's out sized gains, or eat dog food! The Fed's punishing savers! I'm a swing trader and I follow market trends, I'm in & out within 2-days, a week or a couple of months and if the trends my friend I'll definitely turn a trade into a long term investment! All I trying to do here is share some of my knowledge of what I might see developing, because the market is going to do what the market wants to do regardless of how one feels. That being said; if the fed steps up QE this market could rally another 300 points, but I think it might be pausing a bit. The tell will be if The Fed's language calls for more QE, after all Obama, nor The DEMs want to lose The White House to The Republicans, and Obama likes to point to a lofty stock market as one of his achievements that the economy is doing well and we both know the Economy and the stock market aren't connected!

    10/17/14--looks like the shorts are being squeezed, because we're looking at a v-shape rally! if you were lucky enough to get in at the low for (GLOP, GLOG, GMLP, GLNG, DLNG, TGP) take some profits, or set some stops, and don't chase the stocks up because these stocks might experience some profit taking on monday morning, or the shorts may try to push the stocks back down, wait for the "near" double bottom to form a W-shape formation where the right side of the w-shape is half way through 10/17/14 price movement and is turning back up with heavy volume which means new money has come into the market causing the shorts to cover their positions and they become buyer of the stocks driving the share price higher, or to really simplify things buy the higher-highs with 2-3 days of good volume and place trailing stops! Some, all or non of what I just described may or may not materialize, because of new-news coming out of Europe, China-The Brics or some unfolding events! Don't worry be happy?
