I am jumping ship.. and headed for a Deserted Island to escape the upcoming market storm.
Nothing better than leaving on a day the Market is rallying nice and strong on the fumes of AAPL earnings.
Monster up Day is what today will be called.
What the heck is going on is anyone's guess. [more]
today about Luxury Mattress seller , saying it will add Tempur Pedic products to all 65 of its stores including its company website. Shares started rebounding as soon as news broke. [more]
AAPL is down over -12% since the 2012 high. I see the risk vs. reward now favoring longs.
TPX shares are down well over -25% in the last 5 days, from $87.26 to current $64.10. [more]
Shorts getting the funny feeling they better cover ahead of AAPL earnings.
Like I said earlier today when the Market was down -169 points that I had a GUT feeling the market will recover most of today's losses before the close.
ahead of AAPL earnings. I have seen this kind of action many times and rebound can be just as furious as the dip.
I have never seen so many bet against AAPL since last Fall 2011.
I would not bet against AAPL even with gambling money.
Seems like a big earnings miss is priced in..
Value Investors love to invest when all others are taking profits like they are doing on TPX today. They company beat earnings but then forecast that going forward it will not meet previous forecast by a few pennies. [more]
Which should start either after lunch on Friday or early next week. [more]
I just ran across a story on the Wall Street Journal that says ethane has fallen -39% in QTR 1 of 2012 [more]
Every Qtr it seems that investors jump in heavy on DOW Chemical ahead of earnings but in Feb. Dow Chemical shocked all those early investors as the company stock fell after missing estimates. So investors are gun shy of doing the same this qtr, just like they were gunshy of AAPL last qtr. [more]
Gold selling intensified in March and 1st week of April as Indian gold buyers went on strike against the bullion tax increase in India. The strike just came to end this week and the spot price of Gold quickly started to rebound like clockwork. [more]
All those +200k jobs in Dec. Jan. Feb. will somehow show up in the economy as extra production output.
Stocks in general will beat expectations this earnings season. Now that the market has had a mini 5 day pullback, its back to the business of running with the bulls in the streets of Spain.
Stocks sold off 1st week in March , just like they have sold off in the 1st week of April. [more]
Usually its the opposite 2 stars or less. Any All-Star who rated this to Outperform care to tell us your inside story on the company?
in the last 3 days straight. [more]
to current market share price from the government. If my memory serves me correct, the government AIG cost is $27/shr. [more]
If we don't get short covering today, we will certainly get it Thursday, here is why shorts won't wanna stay short this weekend:
The official government jobs numbers come out on Friday, but because of the holiday weekend, the market won't be able to digest the new info until Monday.
Why is it ? Gap down days are easy money by bears, but bulls can also profit by finding growth stocks at a bargain. [more]
What do they know that we don't?
