  • Interesting Times For All Commodities And Investments!! PORTFOLIO #14.......  [View instapost]
    Sell my (MDSO) at Open; but buy nothing at Open please.

    As long as I post before Open, you can go back later and do trades that I asked for before Open correct? Likewise, if I post before Close, I can get trades done at close as well correct?

    I am seeing pre-war jitters in all world markets atm (02:20 EST).

  • Forum On The New Nokia - The Future [View instapost]
    Softbank has been trying to find ways to make huge investments in "the west". They seem to have a massive budget for investment, so much so that it makes me want to do some DD to see where the money is coming from and why. If they are Legit, NSN should ride their money unless Softbank puts too many restrictions, meaning interfering with NSN's historical profit making HQ.

    With many years in the healthcare field, I too have a great interest in these. In your DD you have to read their trials very carefully though. They are always hugely optimistic, but until a drug reaches Phase 3 trials, it is many years from generating revenue. Once they hit phase 3, they might get bought by a bigger company, or even eventually brought to market. Here is where I think the MMs can get fooled. They are not medicine topic trained, and I believe that they forget the "Publish or Perish" rule, and cannot sort out the BS articles from the ones with value. It is a tricky world when research in stocks mixes with research in medicine.

    Looks like ACT is Actavis PLC according to Schwabb.

    Actelion is ALIOF and ALIOY

    "Analysts are like flies" Oh wait, that's what we used to say about another group-equally arrogant.
    I picked this up on a "Paper Trade" in a small portfolio challenge and glad it was only paper. It ate me for lunch. "Analysts" were touting it then as well. I would only ever trust analyst props in paper trades, and I hope others don't fall for them either.
    If they were the only people able to make 3D printers, they might do well; but they a far from the only game in the field, and it will only get worse.

    That is the "What could be unfortunate comparisons in these pictures?" paragraph brings out. Certain stocks may plot out well, but have too few prior experiences at Similar Range Indexes" to be statistically significant.

    @Gary Myers
    I have been running a Blog on these Tools since Jan 4 or so. What I have been doing is separating out each available tool and trying to explain it in my own terms. I did a bit of rewording of Peter's stats which you might find simpler to follow. If you are interested, it's the only Blog I have up at this time. There are many tools from Blockdesk.com discussed there besides these. I invite comments, questions, or "Other"LOL.

    Going to break my disciplined approach and sell (DDD) and buy (MANH) with the proceeds.

  • Windows OS Phones Should Increase Market Share In 2014 And Begin To Rival iOS [View article]
    The same type of protection that I use for other Windows products. If you log on at any unsecured Wi-Fi Hotspot, you are open to anyone there. More malware is written for phones than desktops, so without even an internal firewall, I dare not store any passwords on my phone.

  • Windows OS Phones Should Increase Market Share In 2014 And Begin To Rival iOS [View article]
    It's too bad that as a Software company, MSFT has not supported their phones by writing Apps. I have yet to find a decent security program for my 928, not even Windows Defender.
    I had to settle for the 928 as Verizon didn't get the 1020, and Verizon is the only carrier that has coverage in most of the places I go. I cannot even get a signal from Sprint or AT&T inside the local VA Hospital.

    Read that link. I was amazed at the number of single digit and under 20 digit commenters with opinions far stronger than their apparent reading abilities.

  • The Next MoMo Stock, Part 1: Understanding The Momentum Mechanism [View article]
    Did you follow what happened to QCOR in December. I forgot who it was, but a major investor announced he was shorting shares in the millions. The stock dropped about 10% but eventually rebounded. From what I read, it certainly met your point about controversy and liquidity. Might I assume that the big money that announced Short got out as it went down after the announcement, leaving the retail investors that followed holding the Squeeze?
    Do that many retail investors really jump on such bandwagons? There must be some trade I am missing here. It certainly developed huge momentum bottoming ~50 up to >70.

  • How Do Experienced Investors Analyze Stocks? How About ETFs? [View article]
    That does sound interesting. I can see how grabbing the top ten holdings of an ETF then running those stocks through a screener like Blockdesk will soon have, could be another step in DD. Until BD opens, I may try running some of those through standard customized screeners.
    Let us know how it does through a quarter if you can.
