  • Advanced Micro Devices CEO Discusses Q4 2010 Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    I saw the upgrade to $15. I also believe the stock will move when they name a CEO and that person takes them in new directions. They are being very quiet with their search which is always good.

    I like your number better and hope that happens. Maybe they will have their ex-CEO come back but not sure he wants to being in his 70s. I only see a positive future for AMD and waiting for them to select their new CEO.

  • Advanced Micro Devices CEO Discusses Q4 2010 Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    I bought AMD on the way down and continue to believe it is a buy. I recommended a buy as it was on its' way down and it went even further down; I bought more. I see AMD going to $8.50 - $9.00 within 3 - 7 months. I traded AMD in 2010 and made profits each time. I believe they are in excellent position with their products and everyone is waiting for them to select their CEO. Selection of their CEO will raise their price and I am sure they will start taking a new direction into the mobile area. They are waiting for the new CEO to take them in that direction.

  • Cramer's Stop Trading! It Doesn't Matter What Intel Says (1/14/11) [View article]
    The market will take a dip shortly and when that happens is when I will buy. Consumer confidence will continue to remain low with energy prices and food prices running high. I do not see the housing market getting any better with unemployment remaining high. People cannot afford taking on higher debt. The market will continue to fluctuate and for those who are short term traders need to be aware of all of these conditions.
    I made money from MGM and Citi many times and recently sold off both.
    I will buy Citi again if it hits $4.98 - $5.00. I believe MGM is a hold at this time and will wait for that stock to come down. People are going to start looking at MGM tacking on a $20 a night resort fee and look to go elsewhere. I can wait.

    Always look at a variety of stocks and stay diversified. When one sector goes down, others go up. You can continue to be in the stock market if you are diversified.

  • Cramer's Mad Money: Ag Is Busting Out All Over (1/13/11) [View article]
    I disagree with Cramer on waiting on AMD. I just purchased it. Their price dropped on the announcement that Meyer left the company. What ever happened to the statement that "we are all replaceable". Look at the reason why he left and you will see the new direction AMD is moving to. They are looking to develop chips for Smart phones and other devices and not just PCs and servers. The Board is looking to expand their business. Once AMD announces who they selected and the direction it will go in, watch the stock move higher.

  • Cramer's Lightning Round - Viva Las Vegas (1/10/11) [View article]

    I have a 401K and a regular account.
    There is a tremendous difference when I changed my strategy. I believe it is the only way to go. Long term trading, maybe 5% gain, short term trading, over 30%.
    Good Luck and keep making money.

  • Cramer's Lightning Round - Viva Las Vegas (1/10/11) [View article]

    I have shorted Ford and Citi and continue to trade Citi short. I will wait for Ford to drop before I start with them.
    I am not sure how much stock you purchase at one time but lets say you bought 5,000 shares of Citi a few days ago when it dropped to I believe 4.90 and sold it at $5.00. That is a quick profit of $500. I am sure Citi will drop again to maybe $4.90 - 4.95. You now have money to purchase even more shares. You will make more money that way than if you wait the 18 months. Look at different stocks and play those stocks in the same way. I see AMD going up and down with the recent news. MOTR is a stock that I believe Cramer recommended months ago. I studied it and then started trading it. I have bought and sold that stock at times in the same day.
    I use two accounts for trading. One in my 401K and the other is a regular account.

  • Cramer's Lightning Round - Viva Las Vegas (1/10/11) [View article]
    I remember buying MGM in 2010 on the same day Cramer said to stay away from MGM. I did well and probably sold too soon at that time. If I can make a quick profit, I do it. I no longer hold stock for long term. I have bought and sold MGM multiple times in 2010 all profit selling. I rather pay the higher short term taxes rather than risking losing money for the long term. 2010 was a good year for me with approx a 30% profit in trading. I do no options; I strickly buy and sell stocks.
    Cramer has given some very good recommendations but you need to wait and not jump immediately. Quickly look at the charts, read some of the comments and do not necessarily agree with the rating companies. Make your own decision based on what you read and how you see the stocks perform over the last few months.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    I have profited quite often in 2010 with purchasing and selling AMD. If the AMD release is accurate and the parting was mutual then I consider AMD a buy in the $8.40s and $8.50s and will purchase shares today.

    I do short term trading of stock; I do no Option trading. I stay with individual stocks and my stock profits in 2010 is approx 30%.

  • Are Casino Stocks Tired? [View article]
    I recently sold my shares in MGM and I am in agreement with you. Also, as the cold weather is here, I believe that Las Vegas will also slow down even with business meetings as we come to the end of the year and many businesses want to ensure they do not go over their budget. At this time I do not own any gambling stock but will eventually buy when I see the stocks move lower.

  • Vonage: Phone at a Discount [View article]
    I made my profit and recently sold. I will buy if it goes back to $2.30. If I can make a 10% profit in a short time period, I take it.
    In today's market, your trades should be short term profits. I remember when stocks went up or down by penies in a day. Now the swings are in dollars. Take advantage if you see a profit.

  • Housing: Still Flooded [View article]
    Excellent article.
    For those like me who own their house for 30 years, we are very much ahead but for anyone that bought in the in the last 10 years, they are not. I am conerened that our children and their children are going to be worsr off than we are. I never thought I would say that.
    I am a day trader and listen to anaylst each day and wonder if some of them are living in a fantasy world. I do not see the housing market coming back for years; prices will continue to fall and foreclosure will rise as long as potential owners are allowed to put down less than 20%. Not everyone can afford a house and even less today can afford to purchase. There is nothing wrong with renting.
    Our unemployment is at approx 17% and not the 9.5% that we keep seeing. And those that may start finding jobs will get paid a much lower salary or get temp jobs without benefits.
    I look at our politicians and wonder how they could believe that people that put down less than 20% could afford that home. Prices always go up, taxes, insurance, utilities, food, etc. They are the ones that started this situation and then followed by the mortgage brokers offering 100% mortgages. Our polticians are the ones to blame; not Wall street or the banks. They are the ones to forced the banks to lend to those that cannot afford, do not forget Fannie and Freddie Mac.
    I can see banks maybe renegotiating the rates to help the owners but only if the banks believe that by lowering the rates those owners will be able to afford. What I am against is the gov't giving money to reduce the principal. That is unfair to the vast majority of people who have been and continue to pay their mortgages on time. By the gov't continuing to increase our debt will only cause our taxes and fees to increase causing many of those, that are paying on time, to possibly default on their mortgage.
    When the gov't looks to tax businesses to cover the gov'ts mistakes, the businesses will not hurt but we will as they pass their tax increases to us, the consumers.
    You may see those that can afford start going under if the gov't looks to bail everyone out. We just cannot afford it any longer. It appears the our politicians believe we are a bottomless pit.

  • The Verizon Dividend Trade [View article]
    I am also long but not sure if the pattern will occur for this round. Do you believe the selling of Verzion west and midwest to Frontier could affect your strategy?

  • Vonage Could Be a Possible Double [View article]
    I agree that Vonage is looking up but I do not see a takeover from any of the large US telecommunication companies. Any takeovers would come from the European companies who are looking to enter the US market.
    Vonage is a growing company and very affordable for customers. Their numbers should only be moving up except for losing existing customers which should be coming down.

  • Is Vonage a Takeover Play? [View article]
    A few months ago I also believed Vonage would be a takeover target by a company outside of the US. I still believe that will happen. Both Vonage and Sprint could go to a non-US telecom company; I cannot see either ATT or Verizon looking to purchase Vonage or Sprint.
    I own both Sprint and Vonage and not looking to add to what I already have. We wait and see.
