I think AAPL is going to take a breather now. The next run up should take it past ATH's.

Congrats on people who bought TWTR JUNE CALLS between 30-34 strike.


I snooze on July and missed out. (Still holding shares)

I snooze, I lose.

Wondering if I should buy into TWTR again for next week or wait it out in case it decides to take a breather.

One of my former co-worker emailed me about AMZN, because they want to add more AMZN into their funds.
I told em, "I don't care if AMZN makes Terminator T-1,000,000 manufactured tomorrow, I ain't paying for 400-500 earnings multiples."


Still doing HW on WTSL.
Still holding TWTR. If I see a TWTR dip, I am going to jump on July CALL.
Still looking at AMD. Their new TTM P/E might be far attractive than P/E now, because they were making some $$ starting last year 2q. So, suckers will probably jump in looking at new new TTM PE. These guys need to hit a HR on their sea micro, or it will be a longer road to the recovery.

I will most likely sell some DDS at 119-125 ish. I will sell majority of it on 1/1/2015 (depends on how much they can hold this price).

OXY is beautiful. It's been a strong buy for me ever since it broke above and held $100. There is an inverse head and shoulder pattern on a daily chart which should take it to $115. I'm personally targeting $108 before a dip. It rallied all week and ended at $103.23 today.

I always yield the highest % gains on the smallest positions. Can't complain though.

AMD TWTR looking good.

I am usually right on the spot, but I just cannot predict what AMD would do after July Earnings report.

I'm a college kid with little to no experience in stock trading with a few 1000 to invest in. I suggested that my parents invested in intel, Johnson Johsnon, and Mattel and made a nice profit from it! Do any of the more experienced guys have any tips they can share with a noobie? Thanks fellas

$1000 is enough to start. Make this a learning experience first.
I started with 3000 when not too many people even knew what Datek was. I learned more from investing/trading than 1/2 of my educations combined.

I. Finding a good discount brokerage firm.
1. Look for lowest deposit requirement firm. Some may require fees under x amount. Avoid the fees.
2. Good reliable trading platform/brokerage. Some even have a CNBC on the platform. When I get bored, I just go to Starbucks and watch the CNBC.
3. Cheap commission.

II. Do your Homework.
1. HW on Fundamental/Technical/Economic Indicator may reduce systematic risk. However, sheepies even know how to do all that. Look at the future, not the TTMs. Recalculate the fundamentals based on what they WILL have.
2. There are some speculations involved, but some are really no brainer. M&A speculations are easy, but timing it is not.

III. Self control
1 Learn how Options trading works. Options trading is important factors.
2. Margin? I prefer not, but some do like having a margin.
3. Don't be greedy. "umm, when it reaches 100. Ummm when it reaches 101."

They break real easy haha and if you look they bring new products and drop support for past models almost forcing people to upgrade granted thats a risky business practice but when you're the most well known maker beyond someone using a digital camera, or cell phone you kind of have the market to play with.

Do you have any suggestions for e-brokers, like etrade, interactive brokers, trade monster etc etc?

I've been watching for a few years and I'm ready. I was set to get going with my brother but he recently passed, so I got a little set back but now I really am determined to dive in.

TDAmeritrade, Scottrade, Fidelity are okay. I haven't tried etrade yet, but I almost opened one , when they had a good introductory offer.

I don't really know alot of the words you said to me so I will have to keep educating myself... I signed up for scottrade as it is and I'm gonna deposit some money for the time being. Should I go right into stocks of options like you said? I never understood the concept of options even after reading about them online

DO NOT buy options. This was terrible advice for a beginning trader. Options are complex and volatile and typically only traded by advanced traders.

Just start slowly buying stock in companies you like. You will make a ton of mistakes in the beginning but its all about learning how the market works.

As gatorfast said. Study and Master the options, before you trade them.
It took me about 18moth to realize how to trade and work on option strategies.

This nominal % gain in stock market look awesome, but we are basically hedging against the excessive Money Supply. Typically, people hedge against the dollar with precious metal, but they are little played out (or overbought imho). Bond mkt is basically screwed. Housing rose a little due to cash buyers.
Even McDonald/Wendy's Dollar menu went up more than S&P500 gain.

Only place investors had was stock market.
I don't think this rally will go further than 2Q2015. I haven't seen good bull market action year before the election in 15y period.
