  • POSTINGS FOR THE 3RD "IT MOCK PORTFOLIO" CHALLENGE.....CHAPTER 1 !! [View instapost]
    USER

    Actually i just checked my portfolio and i hold

    NOBL 1k shares
    MAIN 2k shares
    USLV 4k shares
    JETS 1k shares

    So not sure if MAIN was bought prior to the ex dividend date. Plus the little notebook i have does not have the phone number. It is a Canadian number though...

    My negative portfolio is actually filled with a mix. An index fund long on the market, USLV with is dragging the portfolio down.

    Planning on adding a third portfolio that will be made up of only stocks !

    Now your dividends should be added to your cash by tomorrow. If not send them an email.. Unless someone has a phone number. I did have one but apparently they removed it.

    I think OAG maybe had it, or JBT. Looked to see if i had it written somewhere. If i find it i will post it..

    JBT

    I am not knocking anything you guys have done. I am not singing any tune either.

    Not sure why you think that ? I am merely pointing out that your method has worked..

    I stand firm on my beliefs that time left before you need the funds is important.. Why do you think anything i say is negative?? I just complemented you two and i think you don't see it that way..

    Well see how the strategy works over the next 2 years. I always believed in buy and hold, but those professionals say times are different.

    The Bowman's just proved for one year it works !!

    Coming down to the end of that and great job by all.. But Kudos to the Bowman's as a family they had a the best portfolio it seems.


    Might have cashed out at a great time as well. Luck sometimes is on your side. Rolling that over to start a new business is perfect!

    Anything over a 20% annual return is great. Now the PC3 might be a little different. I am planning on having a third portfolio of stocks that i will be picking on my own to see how i do.

    The metals will not be included. No need as i would not trade them in real life so no need to include them.

    They are getting pounded recently and i went back and read some of my old links . It was clearly stated by Mike Maloney a few years ago to expect them to drop if DEFLATION hit us first after the QE'S were started.

    Now some banks are saying $800 ? We shall see but mark this down. If gold drops to $800 we will be in a decent market correction as well !!

    YOU HEARD IT FROM THE "IT FIB" !!

    Meanwhile i heard that THE DONALD might run as an Independent. If that happens you can hand the keys over to the Democrats. Seems his poll numbers haven't been hurt by his comments.

    Political spokes people now feel it's his message. McCain didn't help his own cause calling those who follow Trump CRAZIES. Some Vets are now annoyed at McCain asking what has he done for vets ??

    Mistake, as some Vets do like Trump... Change might be coming folks !!

    OW....HERE IS ONE YOU GAVE US A WHILE AGO. STATED IT WAS TIME TO SELL IT. UP 10% TODAY !! WOULD YOU BUY IT NOW ??

    Cybersecurity stocks rally on Fortinet's results/guidance !!!

    As was the case 3 months ago, security tech plays are up strongly (HACK +3.6%) after Fortinet (FTNT +12%) beat estimates, reported strong billings, and delivered above-consensus top-line guidance. The Nasdaq is up 0.3%.

    In addition to FireEye, Palo Alto Networks, and CyberArk (previously covered), gainers include Barracuda Networks (CUDA +6.4%), KEYW Holding (KEYW +4.5%), Symantec (SYMC +1.9%), Imperva (IMPV +7.6%), Proofpoint (PFPT +3.6%), Vasco (VDSI +4.5%), AVG (AVG +3.1%), and Qualys (QLYS +5.7%). AVG is benefiting a bullish JPMorgan coverage launch; Proofpoint reports after the close.

    JPMorgan's Sterling Auty has upgraded Fortinet to Overweight, and a slew of firms have hiked their targets. Auty argues Fortinet's numbers suggest its efforts to grow its high-end presence (aided by major sales investments in recent years), and forecasts free cash flow will rise 43% this year.

    On Fortinet's earnings call (transcript), CFO Drew Del Matto mentioned $100K+ deals rose 53% Y/Y and $1M+ deal 133% (compares with 40% total billings growth). He also mentioned the company's high-end FortiGate UTM/next-gen firewall appliances made up 45% of billings (a new high), and that U.S. enterprise sales (benefiting from strong cybersecurity spend) rose 90%. Major deals were struck with "two of the most recognizable technology brands in the world," as well as two large i-banks.

    GOOD NEWS THURSDAY ,,,I OWN THIS IN MY RFL !! WISH I HAD MORE OF IT ! BELIEVE WITHIN OUR CYBER ISSUES GOING FORWARD THIS IS A DECENT STOCK TO OWN..

    NOW FOR THE M REIT PLAYERS !!


    Mortgage REITs lit up bright red as earnings bellwethers disappoint !!!!

    CYS Investments last night reported a big drop in book value as the effect of sharply higher rates more than offset the company's hedges. Core income failed to cover the dividend as prepayments also rose.

    The stock today is down 2.6% and trading at more than a 20% discount to book value.

    Earlier this week, Hatteras also reported a decline in income and fall in book value.

    Sector giants Annaly Capital (NLY -0.5%) and American Capital Agency (AGNC -0.7%) are performing the best today. Armour Residential (ARR -1.8%), Chimera Investment (CIM -0.8%), Invesco Mortgage (IVR -1.1%), New York Mortgage (NYMT -1.2%), Western Asset Mortgage (WMC -1%), Anworth Mortgage (ANH -1.2%), Arlington Asset (AI -2.3%), Ellington Residential (EARN -2.1%), Dynex Capital (DX -0.8%)

    ETFs: MORL, REM, MORT, LMBS

    APPRECIATE SOME THOUGHTS ON THIS..WAS PLANNING ON ADDING THESE TO MY NEW PORTFOLIO.. NOW NOT SO SURE...

    I JUST TRADED ALL MY SHORTS AND BOUGHT 2K SHARES OF SPXL..

    Apparently, if the trade goes through, you can buy more then 25% in any symbol !! I think the trade was close to $185k !!

    "IT FIB" said to go long on a bounce happening !!

    Not sure i believe it, but took the advice.

    Just walked in from a decent day at the track, i guess the sell off has started?

    The unemployment number is great and the markets sell off? Maybe that interest rate hike fear is kicking in ?
