  • Will Gold's Spectacular Rally Continue? [View article]
    Here for anyone who wants it is free advice for making a whole lotta money when rates begin the ascent whenever it starts, SHORT either 25-30yr Gov't. bonds (requires 10% margin) Corps. can as well but Guvvies are the best/safest/cheapest/most liquid of the two. Example, today a 30 yr Gov't. bond has a coupon of 5% and trading at 100, in 5 years if the newly issued Gov't. 30 yr bond is issued with a coupon of 7.5% than the current bond to yield an equivalent 7.5% would need to trade at ~75 thus a $250 profit per bond, and this is a MUST!! not a maybe (if my math calculation is wrong plz advise). Just be patient and have specific years in mind in advance

  • NPD: Toy sales up 4% in 2014 [View news story]
    Anyone know when the FROZEN ice show was expected to begin, I know it will now be Jan/Feb 2016 is that as expected or later? I ask because I am pretty long JAKK and was expecting the Frozen ice show to create/continue interest in the retail items, it still will but not for awhile. Thanks much

  • Smith & Wesson: A Large Jump Following A Modest Guidance Hike [View article]
    Here's a post I made on SA on 12 Dec, 12:25 AM

    On a side note, as a recent investor in SWHC (I held in 2005-06 at ~$6 and was called away at $20 in late 2007) I strongly believe the stock will be in the $18-$20 range in 24-36 months if it isn't bought by a larger sporting goods mfg. before than at ~$16. If they were to pre-announce better than the street expects for revenue and EPS that should generate a $1-$2 pop and begin to bring negative perception to more accurate positive perception and thus a higher stock price on the way to $16+. If i'm wrong my due diligence has a flaw, even though it's been pretty accurate for a very long time.

    if you believe the gov't numbers you're very naive as they haven't been reported accurately for 2+ years i.e. unemployment (10-12%) inflation (5-6%) etc.

  • Why I Hang Onto My Gold Portfolio [View article]
    You sound exactly like me when explaining to 3 others whom I told to buy gold/silver 3 years ago, everything is so much worse than the gov't. "figures" indicate, interest rates are being kept artificially low, unemployment is actually closer to 10-12%, and the economy is much weaker than reported. I know if I sold my metals the true info would shine thru and I'd watch the metals skyrocket. So I sit and wait and am being patient

  • AdTech Year In Review: A Story Of Consolidation And A Consolidation Of Stories [View article]
    I have been a holder of ADTM for 2-3 years, have been frustrated like most BUT! being they are still trading, are seemingly doing things correctly and have some intelligent people both as employees and investors I'm in for the duration. I look at it like this, $12-$15 OR .01 and with a risk reward like that and the stock much closer to the .01 than $12 it's worth the risk. Why, if I paid $8-$9 with the same risk/reward it's not worthwhile, with a c/b closer to $.50 it is, get in now and the r/r is still good. Once it does begin to move it will move quickly, again, either direction.

    Seldom doesn't mean never, and I think Apple may be an aberration, so having 2 examples of the literally 100's of occurrences is hardly a repudiation of my comment, give me closer to 20-25 and I will feel proven wrong, seldom is still the correct statement

  • CORRECTING and REPLACING PHOTO AeroVironment’s New TurboDock Workplace and Commercial EV Charging Station Puts Control in the Palm of Drivers’ Hands with Smartphone App [View article]
    This stock shows why patience is so vital when investing, I have owned a core posn. in this stock for over 10 years (when it came public) and have watched it bounce all over, however I am sure with their technology in the 3 fields they're in that they will become a smaller part of a bigger company at some point, and at a price in the low-mid $40's, so I hold my core posn. and trade around a secondary posn.

  • Energous: Post-CES Observations [View article]
    You obviously have no idea how stocks or the stock market work, a stock that went from $8 to $12 and back down to $9 is hardly in the gutter, go get a calculator and calculate a 50% retracement, from 8 to 12 is a 50% gain, from 12 to 9 is 25% drop, this is not only common it's GOOD. See where it goes from here

  • Energous: Post-CES Observations [View article]
    My post PRE CES:

    Being new to WATT (since Monday) and reading all the comments I see some that are pretty pie in the sky and some that seem to have substantial due diligence and value, however NOT being new to investing (began when I was 13, I am now 54) I absolutely expect to see the stock sell-off tomorrow(1/7) and possible for 1-2 more days, the stock has run up in anticipation of CES so when the presentation is done and the floorshow is over I expect many folks that got in 7-10 days ago to sell and take some nice profits, then beginning Friday/Monday to see the stock begin to move up again albeit a bit slower. Having said that I am going to begin doing my own DD and will post whatever I find, good or bad, before I have much skin in this game. My EARLY a.m. trade for tomorrow would have been to BUY the Jan $10 or $11 PUT, however with no $11 I would consider the $10 @ .40 but hate the fact there $1.50 out of the $$$. Good luck longs

    always expect stocks that run up in anticipation of an event to drop on the actual event, in fact I posted that and an expected price for AFTER CES and have been very close.

  • Ocwen: Cooperating with California; up 6% after hours [View news story]
    I had 1 stock blow-up late 2014, my 1st in ~8-9 years, woke up this a.m. and saw this potential disaster and closed out the posn. with a small loss but did NOT want to see another $2-$3 handle as I was also naked 50 PUTS, too many other stocks without the potential problem
