  • Bulls Vs. Bears: A Review Of Sentiment And Value Of Staples [View article]
    Prav, I was fairly impressed with the move, too. Hindsight is 20/20...but I could've stuck around in SPLS a couple more days for a few extra bucks, but I am satisfied with being a pig versus a hog this time!

    Cheers, Moses

  • Staples' Bull Case Gets Stronger With Starboard Stake [View article]
    Treetis, I appreciate your work. You framed it (SPLS) up nicely. Personally, I would not be short as I try to limit my trading throughout the year. When the equities I hold actually run up and punch through my sell price, I happily take my profits and go searching for another sand box to play in. In retrospect, I may have waited a few more days to let the SPLS merger/activist/happiness rally exhaust itself, thereby sucking up a couple more percentage points in profit, but I am sticking with 'pig' versus 'hog' in this case.

    My energy holdings are really stinky right about now...but probably worth doubling down on...it was nice to harvest a win in SPLS as the rest of my book looks gnarly.

    Regards, Moses

  • A Growing Black Cloud Over The Market [View article]
    jelrod3, I had the same thought as the oil slide continued and my names got chewed to bits. This is about Putin, putting him on his heels, after the bravado shown in the skies and Ukraine. This is a different form of 'sanctioning Russia'. The problem is that MY hard earned money is in those names that are in the wake of this action.

    Appreciate the sentiment, but I got in at $11 change and planned to exit above $16, which I did this past week; about 43% to the good.

  • IBM sells off to new 52-week lows [View news story]
    Be diligent with your equities homework, stick to your buy price (mine was 170 or below on 220 intrinsic), have an exit plan, and then go enjoy your life. Long IBM.

    Cheers, Moses

  • Navigating The Turbulent Oil Market With National Oilwell Varco [View article]
    MD,

    You know this is a fools errand, but I'll play:

    - 2 months: flat to down 10%
    - 12 months: $75ish

    Exogenous shock will turn these oil frowns upside down...regards, Moses

    I love this name. I wouldn't wait to begin building your position Mike, as you may not have many chances to buy NOV at the current price, even with the tomfoolery in the 'oil slide'. If NOV does materially drop in the next couple quarters, you can pick up some more.

    I am long NOV and at this moment it remains atop my list of adds. Go long baby.

    Cheers, Moses

  • How To Profit From A Rebound In Oil Prices [View article]
    Long NOV, long ESV, and although it hurts right now, these two gems shoudl be just fine after the 'crude crash'. Long BTU, two junior uranium miners, and some others, and they hurt just as bad or worse.

    Buffett said there'd be days (months) like this...

    Thanks for the article. Cheers, Moses

  • Cramer's Mad Money - I Didn't Have Enough Confidence In Bed Bath & Beyond (11/19/14) [View article]
    drew111, Cramer is the epitome of a double-edged investment sword. Your comment is solid. He is more 'edutainment' than pure investing, but like every other analyst, he gets some right some of the time.

    I know this is probably Miriam (the author) talking and not Cramer, but this statement is gold: "The bottom line: never sell a stock just because it is going lower. Cramer would stay long on conviction based on homework."

    Regards, Moses

    Long NOV and a bunch of other names some people would think I am crazy to be staying long in...
