  • Portfolio Asset Allocation Strategy..... A New Perspective.

    Lets start with the basics. Portfolio Asset Allocation Strategy is a trading manner the twists up diversification, personal goals, and everything that makes trading do fun and independent.

    If I am going to be a successful trader, I must have money spread out, so to say. This is one way to help a portfolio succeed. Remember, there are no guarantees.

    I have to be able to think for myself. I have to listen to what my brain and instinct are telling me based on simple questions.

    1. Why am I choosing to pick this company to purchase stock in?
    2. Do the chart patterns show you, or do you even care? ( Don't feel bad, its a process.)
    3. What's the company really up to?
    4. Do you have a passion for trading in the first place???????????
    5. Institutional ownership, beta, patterns pattern patterns!!!!!

    This means I have to make extremely wise, educated, and almost telepathic decisions on how to make my strategy work. This is a personal process, completely. No body can guide you in this, which filters out the people who are losing al their money to the successful traders.

    I recently purchased two Orchids. I thought they were pretty and I named them S & P. The problem is, I did no research and as I type P is fading away. I bought both S & P at the same time, did not make the right investment when it came to purchasing my plant friends. Although one, S, seems to be flourishing, my poor little, more expensive, P, soon will be in flower heaven.

    You see, if I had done a little more research and not just bought the eye candy, I woud have invested in a cactus. But, no one really puts the cactuses on top shelf.

    I have learned this to be true with picks for the portfolio I am building.

    2.How much money I got " homie"

    If I have $1000.00 Go for S & P!!!! ( Not my Orchids!!)

    3.Do the chart patterns show you, or do you even care? ( Don't feel bad, its a process.)

    Yes, charts are entertaining! I love just training my brain TO SEE THEM RIGHT!!!! Its a topic I really can not try and explain, not now.....

    4.Whats the company really up to?

    Yup!!!! Go ahead and for the weirdest searches ever!!!! I once checked to see if Netflix was spying on me!! I learned really cool stuff!!!! (By the way, love NFLX:NASDQ)

    Its amazing what I find out just putting love and time into the research for my pics. You know one rime I picked Einstien Bagels (BAGL:NYSE) because my initials are EMCC!!!!! But hell Love me Einstien.

    Lionsgate (LGF: NYSE) came straight from quantum something. Don't even know the word for it.!!!!!! Somehow NFLX and LGF are best buds now!!

    Companys working together get more done!!!!!!!!! For sure!!!!! And that is what's up!

    • Do you have a passion for trading in the first place???????????

    THIS MUST BE A YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Instituional ownershit, beta, patterns pattern patterns!!!!!

  • Practicing Inorganic Growth.

    So, the question arises. What is the difference between organic and inorganic company growth? The answer is quite simple. Organic growth is when a company decides their strategy for company success and forward progression, is by remaining a single unit. Inorganic growth is the opposite. This is when a company is able to sit back and really be honest.

    I believe that each company, like each person, has its flaws. I find it rather harmonious to see companies working with one another for an overall better outcome.

    Lionsgate (NYSE:LGF), CBS television (NYSE: CBS), and my old favorite Netflx (NASDAQ:NFLX) are a perfect example of this inorganic business model. I couldn't be more proud of my favorite picks playing so well together.

    I believe this is a good sign for the growth of all three stocks. Keep it up guys! Happy trading!

  • Why LIONSGATE (LFG) ENTERTAINMENT Will Succeed In The Long Term.

    Why Lionsgate Entertainment (NYSE: LGF) Will Succeed In The Long Term.

    Perhaps you choose to use Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) as you primary entertainment provider; Possibly your family chooses Red box (CSTR) to bring a night of popcorn and a flick; or may be basic network television, including networks such as CBS (NYSE:CBS) better suits your needs.

    Lions Gate has created hit television series such as Weeds and Mad Men, and movies such as Twilight, the Hunger Games. Movie studios like Lions Gate have a very delicate balancing act to play when it comes to striking contracts with content providers. On the one hand, they can gain a lot of revenue from Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) by striking a contract. On the other hand, they are potentially giving up revenue from other sources as the subscriber base at Netflix increases.

    Lions Gate, operates in two segments, Media Networks and Filmed Entertainment. Media Networks covers any network that plays media. Filmed Entertainment is the production of the films. I recommend (NASDAQ: LGF) for several reasons. Their ability to "play well with others" impresses me. Tonight when I decided to post, once again on this stock, it hit me how much companies work together. Especially in the Entertainment sector.

    It is not to say LGF does not have competitors. Viacom (NYSE:VIAB) is more diversified beyond motion pictures and is engaged in producing more television content: MTV, BET, Nickelodeon, Spike, VH1, Comedy Central, etc. The difference is, Viacom is trading at twice the price of LGF, making it difficult for new combers to the market to get in on Viacom stock.

    I am new to the market and my base investment will be around $1000. Stocks priced as high as Viacom are out of my reach. LGF is still with in reach and I expect the company to progress. From a working woman's perspective, this is a stock that will improve a portfolio, covering for mistakes made by new investors in the market.

    I am a paper trader currently, saving money to really invest. If I had the money now, I would go for it with this investment.LGF on New York Consolidated
