Shocking my theory worked again like magic.



November 06, 2009 – Comments (13)

Theory :

If you want to buy a stock for a cheaper price, just post about it being a buy on Caps and soon the stock will drop well below the price prior to your post. Worked again today on Both PRX, GSI among others as well.

Do replies to posts work too? 

JNJ is soooo cheap.  I mean how much cheaper can it get??  Oh, I wish I had more cash to throw at it.

Let's see.  I'll be watching.

That tells me one thing, alot of shorts on caps want to take advantage of longs. But you can take advantage of shorts by waiting for them to drive down the price and then buy in.

You can then thank them for the cheaper shares that you were able to buy because of their shorting.

What's your theory as to the cause of this observed phenomenon?

I laid it out for you, shorts or hedge funds have people watching the caps message boards and short a stock they think is being bought to aggressively. By posting a buy reccomendation for a stock your basically inviting the shorts or hedge funds to enter.

This could be good and bad, the good is they will give you a better entrance price if you wanted to get in. The bad is if you wait too long to get in they will start covering and the price will quickly rebound.


That happened with CAAS 2 days ago $12.10 to $11.58, and to REV yesterday $11.15 to $10.75 and to $9.90 premarket today.

Today samething happened to PRX & GSI

PRX was $23+ now $22

GSI was $4.50+ now $4.29

I've heard of crazier ideas for hedgefunds...  But methinks you're letting your CAPS score get to your head just a wee bit too much.


Unless and until you can prove a time correlation from a post to a stock move then I'm inclined to write it up to some other factor...  Bearish market trends with Hangover Bullish sentiment?  dumb luck?

brickcity , I have time tested this theory with over 50 stocks, its proven correct over 95% of the time it even worked with BRK-b shares yesterday.

Put out a buy on BRK-B in early morning and the stock tanks while the market was skyrocketing as shorts entered BRK-B. Then as the shorts started to cover it steadily rose the rest of the day. Today BRK-B went well above  the point it was at yesterday when I said to buy.

There is no doubt about it, the shorts and hedge funds are reading Caps message boards and trying to scalp and aggressive long buyers for a quick buck.

Ok... so... lets see here...


This discussion then might end this correlation right?  Because afterall once the jig is up its time to find a new angle right?


Assuming thats not the case ...  Then the next logical question is does this work for all CAPS players or just ones deemed to be "influential" enough to cause enough people to take the other side of the trade.


Afterall, if I started posting diatribes about what a great buy GS, BAC, etc were I don't think it would move anybody... 


So do you think there is a cutoff of some kind?  And if there is are you taking (private) orders to do some shameless promotion?

Or perhaps, the stock market is in a sell-off stage, where most stocks decline in price no matter what you say about them.

Or perhaps, the stocks you like currently are out-of-fashion on Wall Street and being sold by trend following traders and mutual funds.

Or perhaps, it happened purely by chance circumstances.

Or perhaps, the stock market gods listen to your every post on CAPS and are anxious to please you!

There are at least 4 distinct probabilities to create this outcome by magic or other means.

Just in case you are on to something, I'll give it a try:  TIGERPACK LOVES GOLD AND SILVER STOCKS! (I would prefer a large price haircut of 40%-50% to cover my CAPS shorts in the green!)

Of course there are any number of other great theories....


Perhaps wherever it is you get the information you use to make calls is "bugged"....  Or perhaps your broker is handing over information about you to the "men in black"....


Perhaps you should try wrapping tinfoil on yoru fingers so they can't following your typing...  


Nevertheless please let us know how you plan to expose and combat this manipulation.
