    • Trader14: What does underweight but long mean, underweight relative to what?
      12/16/11
    • Eric Stalee: Relative to the weight of the entire portfolio obviously.
      12/16/11
    • Chines33: Lol was that a serious question?

    • Chines33: Top of my buy list next week are pipelines, heathcare, and consumer staples..may pick at a tech or oil on big selloff.
      12/16/11
    • Trader14: Really, now how does that make sense? How can you be equal weight only one position, what would determine the weight to equal?
      12/16/11
    • Chines33: What? In terms of my overall portfolio I am equal weight tech. With 1 position.
      12/16/11
    • Trader14: Yes it is a serious question, please explain how you can be equal weight one position? What does this percentage equal?
      12/16/11
    • Trader14: Equal to what? Equal to the percentage that tech stocks make up the entire market? Equal to 10% of your portfolio, what are u trying to say?
      12/16/11
    • campusglass: Im taking a geuss here trader but if normal weight is 10% underweight is under 10% overweight is over 10%....your welcome

    • Chines33: I am trying to say that of my entire portfolio I am equal weight in tech..how does that not make sense?????
      12/16/11
    • Trader14: campus, how did you pick 10% as a normal weight for a position? Are you saying a portfolio should have 10 positions?
      12/16/11
    • campusglass: I get waht hes saying Trader14. this is not rocket science.
      12/16/11

      12/16/11
    • User 714683: Think he means relative to the S&P, like how brokers (ex: Merrill) don't do buy, sell, hold anymore, they do under, equal, overweight?
      12/16/11
    • Trader14: Does he mean that? Why can't he just explain it?
      12/16/11
    • BadCop_NoDonuts: aww, did somebody lose money today???

    • Trader14: I made plenty, my questions for Chines are not out of bitterness simply an attempt to make SA a place for honest conversation.
      12/16/11
    • campusglass: Trader SA is a place for ideas. post one sometime. I posted a losing trade today a huge loser. ZNGA, what did you trade todya?

      12/16/11
    • campusglass: ideas do your own research and invest/trade. Dont bitch at him
      12/16/11
    • Trader14: Chines simply has become the most dishonest poster on website and as someone who has tried to help others I believe I should point this out
      12/16/11
    • Eric Stalee: I believe you have an inferiority complex and are determined to prove your opinion correct.
      12/16/11
    • campusglass: I just cant stand the post police mr 14 over there.
      12/16/11
    • Trader14: campus, I traded INTC and QQQ today. Two short INTC trades and one short CTL's trade, all three played out pretty well.
      12/16/11
    • rmw4.0: trader 14: how do you help? All I see you do is bash others. I dont see you post any of your trades
      12/16/11
    • campusglass: WAY SEV POST AFTER THE FACT. YOUR A LIAR. YOURE NOT HONEST> MOST HONEST POSTER> POST YOUR TRADES when you make em.
      12/16/11
    • Trader14: You guys who defend Chines are funny, you really have to bury your head in the sand to believe that he has a shred of credibility.
      12/16/11
    • campusglass: I cant believe you bitch about him and dont post ur trades til i scream at you to.
      12/16/11
    • Eric Stalee: We're not defending him. We're saying it doesn't matter. At all.
      12/16/11
    • Trader14: I believe I have helped quite a few traders over the years, I simply answered your question campus, I have never bragged about a trade here.
      12/16/11
    • campusglass: BINGO WE ARE SAYING YOU SUCK. I feel like golliath with these capitals

    • rmw4.0: trader 14=hypocrite
      12/16/11
    • Trader14: Why do you feel that people shouldn't post the truth here in stocktalks?
      12/16/11

    • Trader14: How is better for the forum if people are dishonest rather then honest?
      12/16/11
    • Eric Stalee: Because to be successful you should be an independent trader! What other people do is irrelevant. You can look at their ideas, but overall
      12/16/11
    • Eric Stalee: it's your job to review any trades you make yourself.
      12/16/11
    • Trader14: I am a full time trader, I am not copying anything Chines does, I am trying to help protect new investors.
      12/16/11
    • Trader14: How a trader manages losses is what determines his success, Chines promotes the idea that its all about winners. That's dangerous.
      12/16/11
    • rmw4.0: I just dont understand why you care so much.... If you dont like Chines then dont read his post.
      12/16/11
    • Trader14: I believe that there is so much dishonesty involved in the financial industry that I always try to help spread honesty, this is why I care

      12/16/11
    • Bildar: He also doesn't like to self aggrandize, and has losses at times just like everybody else.
      12/16/11
    • sstonerm3: Overwieght SBUX and WMT, means got more than I should brother, but I BELIEVE! Say it again, Haluluya brothers and sisters.
