  • Caterpillar Has A China Problem [View article]
    In a bull market, it's dangerous to let people know you're short something.

  • Navistar: Buy The Bonds, Not The Stock [View article]
    I used to do investments like this when I could find bonds being sold off on Prudential's website, but now you can't find this on Wells Fargo. Which website do you use now to look for bonds? TDAmeritrade never seems to have many bonds for sale at good prices. I'm wondering if websites just show us the ones they don't want for themselves.

    hindsight is 20/20. I don't know if anyone knows when to get out or back in.

    But you didn't account for paying tax on gains did you?

    Gold went down. So market went up. Bernanke said we had a better economy than the rest.

  • How Do I Know When To Sell A Stock? [View article]
    Stocks can become extremely over-valued for some time. If you are holding Amazon or other stocks that have little earnings, I think you need to be booking some profits. Look at the GLD and how high it went. You either set some sell stops and realize you will be selling on a dip lower, or you sell it when it gets a good bounce higher intentionally. I think the problem for most individuals is thinking that stocks that have great charts are just going to go up forever and are "good stocks" and stocks that are down are "bad stocks". Cramer and other pundits contribute to this thinking. If you are holding a company long-term, then you better have the conviction of Buffett. When you get dips on those stocks, you are prepared to buy more shares. In fact, every time I sold my stock picks at a loss since 2009, I should have bought more. And I sold out of Amazon several times at a much lower price, while now it is higher. This has been one bull market! But I do think people are going to be more selective going forward and look for bargains. Mark Hulbert on Marketwatch had an article where he said you make more money by buying stocks that sell off after earnings than if you buy stocks that have rallied up. Value trumps growth long term.

  • Top 5 Picks For 2014 [View article]
    The problem for them is they have private labels that aren't that popular and look cheaper than name brands. When I've been at malls in 2 southern states, I didn't see any people in those stores, even when Belk's, Macy's, and Dillard's were busy.
    Go check it out yourself.

    Interesting! Please do some more research on these stocks. I may be interested in buying some of these. I sold a few this past year. My largest single holdings right now, not including mutual funds or ETFs, are IBM and GM. But I have some smaller holdings in others.

  • Cramer's Mad Money - Safety Stocks Are Torture Trades (12/17/13) [View article]
    Might be an opportunity to buy it. Read these two links.

    How does the balance sheet and the income statement look? Are they issuing stock to pay employees with the share count going up or are they buying back the stock that they issue with the share count at least stable?
    That is what I would need to check out.

    I don't own that one either. What I've noticed is that if you are in a high volume stock it can be quite volatile. But if you are a trader and can take advantage of the moves, I bet you can make a lot of money. I just don't have the time to sit and watch it.

    You might should consider doing the opposite of what he says. Stocks that dip could present a buying opportunity. That's one way banks make their money, taking stocks that people throw away to sell them later at higher prices.
    That said, AMD is high risk and I have never owned it. I have enough of my own high risk picks that were up when I bought them and then went down for years. I sell them when I need capital losses against my gains.
