  • Want Alpha? Buy Quicksilver Resources, Sell Starbucks [View article]
    I posted my comments as a follow up to the other comments I posted with regard to this article. If you look at my earlier comments you will probably understand.

    I was never interested in KWK as either a short or a long. I was discussing the price action of SBUX with the author.

    And there you have it: SBUX hits an all-time high of 88.70. I told you not to short it!

    Great stock which continues to rocket higher. Buy on the dips.

  • Cramer's Lightning Round - Let It All Come In (1/15/15) [View article]
    "Let them come in," means let the prices get lower.

    So if XYZ is now $50 a share, letting it come in means letting it go to $49 or $48 or less before buying it.

    LEN and CCS are two different industries as far as I can see. I don't see any correlation.

    I have the same question as Mr. Kostadinov.

    Thank you.

  • I'm Not Buying Starbucks At These Prices [View article]
    I agree with you. We should wait and look to accumulate shares of SBUX on dips. Every time the price rallies to a new 52-week high (there haven't been many times recently), the issue pulls back and does not follow through on the breakout. So there is no need to chase. Just wait for a good pull back.

    Yes, we were up as high as 55.11, but now we are up only 60 cents at 53.77. As Flash says, we have been seeing weakness in late-day trading and into the close.

    55 was a support level recently. It would be important for the bullish case if that level was again surmounted (and held).

    No you didn't say it was wildly oversold. I did.

    Thank you for expanding on your thesis.

    So you're saying that not only is this sector wildly oversold, but after a consolidation period, it will continue to sell off.

    Until what level is reached? What is your target price? It sounds like you're short.

    You state that oil does not appear to have bottomed. Then you state that it is trading in the 54-59 range. If it has not bottomed, it logically follows that the price will fall below 54 until it has bottomed.

    I call what I see. The price of crude is moving in a sideways consolidation pattern at 55.37 at the moment, and is finding support at the 55 level.

  • What A Difference A Week Can Make In The Energy Sector [View article]
    I haven't read the whole article I must confess. The parts of the article I did read lead me to believe that it is a good article. The closing paragraph sounds good. I guess a rhetorical question is in order to sum up what I'm trying to say. How do you know if a bottom is in or not? You say hindsight. OK. That's one way. From what I know about price action I can say that after a long leg down, we are seeing a sideways move. This signals consolidation. So after this sideways consolidation move, are we going to see another leg down or an upturn? You say that you don't think a bottom is in at the beginning of the article. Well, I don't think anyone can tell the future move. If anyone calls it they will tell you they can. I call what I see. A long leg down and a sideways move. Is a bottom in or not? Merry Christmas!

    @GL Investments: I'm sure there would be a significant issue such as you have outlined if the price fell to 35 and then stayed there for any amount of time.

    I'm going by what I'm currently observing in the market: certain indicators are signaling oversold conditions, and the price is consolidating at the ~54-56 level at the moment. Some are calling this a bounce, short covering, and/or a bottom.
