    Wow, smelling 16k, I wouldn't buy shit right now.

    Quoted from wolfemaaan:

    Yeah I’m still curious why JJP didn’t release it. I still would have bought one regardless. Seem like people are buying these regardless because might as well be home playing something fun

    Because there is only like 3 prototypes to bring to TPF.
    With corona, the move to Chicago, parts shortages to come. Be lucky to see JJP lines rolling by xmas.

    How come oil has tanked, yet gas prices in Ca or holding at 2.89 gallon and 2.99 a gallon?

    Got this from Disney yesterday.
    The new opening date has been set to...
    "Until Further Notice"

    #2848 8 months ago
    Quoted from kpg:

    This is a bummer. I'm glad they are extending our annual passes, really cool of them. I take the kids to Disney sometimes on Fri or Sat nights to grab dinner and ride a couple rides, and I am starting to miss doing those things. Cabin fever is setting in... Can't wait until this is all over already.

    The good ol' days. The biggest problem now is not keeping parks closed long enough. Setting a date, letting everyone back in say July 4th, then there's another wave of sickness, guests and employees get sick again, its just bad press and law suits galore.
    This is going to last longer than everyone thinks.

    #2898 8 months ago
    Quoted from kpg:

    Futures open in an hour. Tough to guess where as they are easily manipulated by relatively low volume, a large hedge fund can move them easily themselves it's pretty crazy.
    But if they are showing a large gap down, look for initial panic selling and a bounce, or a huge gap up will likely fade.

    Quoted from Zablon:

    As for how it relates to stocks, it is simply 'stimulus checks' which is directly to stimulate the economy and thus the markets.

    Yes, does not affect 2020 taxes as income, no 1099 coming. Spend away!
    I threw another 2k into my e-trade account with the stimulus. So yes, its to pump up the economy.

    #3699 7 months ago

    With oil tanking.....see what i did there?
    Ive been watching railroad stocks this past month. Lower fuel cost and demand for supply chain.....
    What's the consensus?
    Also keeping an eye on the mouse, DIS. Thinking in about a week to two, this could hit $90 a share again.

    Dont most first quarter earnings come out next week?

    #3837 7 months ago
    Quoted from loren3233:

    I just saw this is coming tomorrow, heads up to anyone
    'United States Oil Fund, LP (USO) has announced a 1-for-8 reverse split effective Wednesday, April 29, meaning shareholders will receive one share of (new) USO common stock for every eight shares they currently own. The stock price will increase to eight times its value at the April 28 close, so shareholder net positions at market open April 29 will be the same as before the split, plus or minus market movements. The deliverable on USO options contracts will be 12.5 shares instead of 100.'

    Made me go look it up. Several years ago this was a good one. Do you think it will ever have an upside again?

    #3868 7 months ago
    Quoted from Concretehardt:

    Makes me wonder how Ford will survive, didn’t they lose like 5 Billion last year?

    Everybody given away new cars. 82 mo 0% intrest! Wow, there begging for a sale. They don't care, just come get a car, we don't care, make a payment 6 months from now, 2 hundred bucks, we don't care, just come get a car.
    Tesla up.

    #3888 7 months ago
    Quoted from DBLM:

    Boeing just raised 25B in a bond offering and will not take federal money. This, combined with them reopening in SC make me think they will rocket up tomorrow.

    How do you buy those bonds?
    Boing isnt going away. They now have two phases of rebuilding to do in the next 5 to 7 years. Revamp and fix max 737. Sustain contracts into 2022, and they will be $300 a share again.

    All this false hope stock market is laughable.
    Vaccine, market is up on talks and promise of vaccine? Trials or not, nothing is set in a vaccine till the sample is proven a certain % effective. Still a year from that.
    So plenty of time for it to tank again on bad news. But hey, im up today!

    Quoted from BobSacamano:

    There are no sports to gamble on, so people are gambling on the markets.

    Speaking of grambling. The Caesars Entertainment Group unvailed some guidelines for there casino's trying to get approval from state.
    It just looks horribly no more fun anymore. The one that bothers me the most is the 21 tables. It will now be only 3 players and a dealer. That means the odds of winning just went down. Statistically 6 player games pay out more. With 3, vegas just made 30% more at the Black Jack Tables.
    Im out, ill go back to vegas in 5 years hopefully.

    #4168 6 months ago

    Humm, checking many future.
    Seems like Tuesday will be a down sell of day again.

    #4193 6 months ago
    Quoted from Concretehardt:

    It always fascinates me that when the market is down big there are huge swings up and down all day, but when is up big it’s pinned up for the entire day most of the time.

    Something is rotten in Denmark.
    Im still thinking unloading all me ETF's by Friday. Keeping many stocks long term.

    #4292 6 months ago

    I should have dumped everything at market open today. I'm up, just could have been a lot more. Just greedy I guess.

    #4327 5 months ago

    I suck at this. Should have sold it all Monday.
    Bought everything back today.

    Damn, cards are falling today.
    Disney plans on reopening and the stock is down $6 and change on this good news?
    I love these opposite trends.

    #4348 5 months ago
    Quoted from Concretehardt:

    I think BA is a buy under $150

    considering I missed BA @ $120, yes I think 150 is a good goal.

    #4352 5 months ago
    Quoted from Concretehardt:

    I bought BA at $118 and sold at $149 I almost jumped off a bridge when it went over $200

    I hear you buddy. Know that feeling. Lets not talk about what I did with HTZ , Hertz, the good news is HTZ is at an all time low at about $2 bucks a share. lol

    #4425 5 months ago

    Can someone explain this to me, who is buying this stock??

    What about war bonds?
    Rocky week ahead. Watching, waiting for bigger dips.

    #4515 5 months ago

    How low can BA go? I got some bottom feeding in April, loved the run up, i knew correction would come. I still believe its $20 over valued today.

    ....and here we gooooooo!!!!!
    Im buying something on the dip today.
    Studying my options, no pun intended.

    #4640 4 months ago
    Quoted from Mad_Dog_Coin_Op:

    Crappy GE is beginning to look like a buy. I think it can double in the next year from this price.

    I'd hold for that $6 personally. I've owned GE for years and not just a couple shares either.
    I cut my holdings to Half when it hit $7.51. Regretted it a little since it went up a little after, and Div paying soon. Still made the dividends and wishing I'd sold all of it.
    However, while back I mentioned companies to big to fail backed by government contracts. So, it will do great in future.
    But no way it doubles. Like Atari said above they have sold several aspects of company.
    So buy at $60 ish, then when your at 25% up, then sell.
    And speaking of dips on market past couple days....Ive been buying RTX Raytheon like crazy. Keeps going lower every day, so I buy more everyday. This stock long term will have tremendous upside and dividends are damn good. This one will double+, may take 6-12 months, but it will double.

    #4644 4 months ago
    Quoted from RA77:

    I have been considering RTX for a while now
    Bottomed out perhaps ?

    Yes, unless you were buying stocks the week of March 18th!! That day changed stock history. That's for another time.
    Disclosure-- I also worked with Raytheon radars for 10 years. Little biased, they make great stuff. Fast forward 30 years, Ive always kept an eye on this stock.
    There also a company not so directed towards the effects of 2020. There set up for decades to come. BA...Boeing is another really good stock. Its taken a beating directed towards world travel and 737. But long term, there not going anywhere. Here to stay companies, think 20 years. Thats why AMZ, Apple, Amazon are also long term solid buys. But, dont spend 3k a share on Amazon! Wait for Long to buy that one. IT will have a 30% dip, give it time.

    Got in last week at 18.70. Holding long till Jan or so. Quarter 2 numbers on Sept 2nd. Cant wait for that meeting.

    The problem with Abbott is that its already up 11% pre market. Needed to grab this yeaterday.
    Johnson and Johnson JNJ is also looking promising, been hovering at 150 for long time.

    #4755 3 months ago
    Quoted from Classic_Stern:

    I sat in JNJ for about 1 month and realized as the S&P and Nasdaq were taking off JNJ was not getting any traction and sold out. Effectively loss of opportunity. I haven't done the stats on ABT to see if it makes sense.

    Im still sitting on, holding long my JNJ.
    Ive tried to set my self up here not for today or next week, but next April when we start to get through this covid crap.

    #4760 3 months ago

    Thats what i pointed out few hours back. The word was out behind scenes last night. Thats why the overnight run up and pre market was so high over 10%. People knew this was going to happen today.

    #4808 3 months ago

    Respect, chest bump. 27 years girl, damn.
    My phone went off within minutes of her death.
    What's great about America is that I 100% disagree with you. The turmoil this could cause next week affects the market. We were on the brink of a stimulus package. That now could be held as a pawn to a nomination. I feel a deadlock in this till after election.
    Anyway, those were the phone calls I got.
    At least I got some Appl today.

    Can't you feel 'em schoolin' around
    You got PINS to the left, PINS to the right
    And you're the only girl in town"
    IF it sells back to $34 range again you know what to do.

    ICE, because you deserve it.
    You give really good advice.

    #5233 67 days ago
    Quoted from Shredso:

    Not to go off topic, but I'm curious what you guys think of my stock situation.
    First off- Total amateur stock buyer, I know very little.
    I bought a share of Tesla with Robinhood last summer, kind of as a goof. I've been buying little bits of stock here and there ever since. I told myself instead of Keno at the bar, or the occasional scratch ticket, I'd throw $50/100 at Robinhood every so often. I bought some marijuana stock that mostly tanked, a few odd stocks because of a news article or something I liked, a few pharmaceuticals because why not, and some because they were low at the beginning of this COVID thing (Microsoft, Apple, airlines). I bought way too early into the COVID situation, but still made some money. There is also a little Bitcoin in there. I've invested $2,700, I now have $5,100. It's been as high as I think $5,800. The great majority of my profits are from Tesla. I was thinking about cashing out and buying NIB pin. I lucked out not knowing what I was doing and might as well take it and enjoy it. I'd probably leave the pharmaceuticals at least until the COVID thing is over. Or I could just leave it, I don't need the money right now, or need a NIB pin. I have a handful of somewhat secure stocks and got lucky on a few. Hopefully in the long run they will continue to grow. There is also the fact that it's in the big picture a very small investment, and who cares.

    Good for you and your stock savings account! Seriously, your almost at 100% profit. Why not?, get the NIB PIN!
    If this was your retirement, an IRA or something else I would say no. No offence, We're not talking 100k here.
    There will be plenty of time to buy stocks. More dips coming, New Highs, Plenty of News and Life over next 12 months to get this train going.

    #5267 64 days ago
    Quoted from DBLM:

    Anybody else get in on Palantir? Got 1750 shares @ $10 on the open.

    I've made money several times buying an IPO on day 2. Let the dust settle, let many take there profit, buy on that low, then hold for a week or 2, then sell when it hits its opening peak again+.
    Worked pretty good with SNOW recently.
    Fyi, do not buy snow above 218.
    Palantir imo is a fun play at mid 8ish, but this is a stock that could pop to 20 with one fart in the wind. It is not a long hold imo for me. Crazy structure of management that could cause problems long.
    RTX , my boy Raytheon, hitting some lows of lows. Pays good div, if your willing to go long long on this 2-3 years it will double+ while you make nice div rewards.

    Quoted from Mad_Dog_Coin_Op:

    Baba (still my favorite Chinese stock) looks like it wants to run. It broke 300 for the first time. Let’s see if it can close above it.
    On a different note I bought a little Pins awhile ago to ride the wave. I know of the company but never dug into them much. I decided to sign up and see what is all about. After creating an account and poking around I have determined they don’t have much to offer. Am I missing something? I don’t see this website generating much cash the way it sits now. Please let me know your thoughts. I might just bail on this one and take the profit. Nothing wrong with that.

    No, you nailed it. (Pins)
    Its just an another medium riding the tech wave.
    It will fizzle eventually, trick is guessing when to get out.
    Baba, Chinese stocks scare me post election.

    This 100%
    However, I did find it useful during a home renovation project. Made a "board" and saved a bunch of pictures for master bathroom ideas. I actually used a few of the design ideas. So, great in that aspect, but I haven't used the app much since. Probably will for future projects though.

    Google pictures does this to. In fact, it will pull up some pintererst pictures. But with google I get 10x the results of an image.

    Quoted from sbmania:

    So as of mid-morning the day after it is looking like all is lost for Trump. The circumstances will likely result in a protracted court battle, and who knows what else. But, the senate may possibly stay in Republican hands. So what to do now? Stocks up or down? Get in or get out? Switch 401k and IRA over to Roth while we have the benefit of Trumps lower taxes or wait to see how it all plays out? Anybody got any useful insight for a dummy like me?

    Ride it out. Elections happen every 4 years and it rarely effects stock market long term.
    In fact, it just keeps going up.

    Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

    It took me longer than I care to admit to figure out where the Viatris stock came from when I checked my account this morning. I was ready to file a ticket with the broker to figure out if I somehow bought it while under the influence.

    Hopefully you guys didn't sell off your New Shiney VTRS.
    This is a great post covid stock.
