My company was first in the market on Thursday or Friday, even on top of Bank of America. BOA tanked and we took the lead. My opinion, BOA is going to file bankruptcy in the near future.

The gov probably won't let them file for bankruptcy. They'll either straight up bail them out or come up with another fancy "planned bankruptcy" kind of thing. I do believe they are still in big trouble for sure. That earnings report was not very impressive at all once you dug a little deeper. I can't really picture BAC going up a whole lot. I think $8.50 is the bullish upside for BAC in the next couple months but I think a drop back into the $5.50 to $6.00 range is more likely.

What do you mean first in the market? Best performer among banks or among all stocks? Or just among the DOW bluechips?

If you're playing games with leveraged ETFs take a gander at FAS and FAZ. FAS is a bullish financial ETF while FAZ is the direct opposite. If you have time you can trade them back and forth a couple of times during a day and make money in every direction the market is moving. Worth realizing that the risk of playing with 2 and 3 times leveraged ETFs is very, very high. If you guess wrong and the market goes up 2%, you end up losing 4%... Happily it works the other way as well!

I'm still long on my BAC, but willing to dump on a moments notice.

In a double short on (SDS) this time I was coached by one of my paid pros. It's going the wrong way again, hope I don't stop out before it turns around.

Been losing $ pretty steady.....back into the green due to a gold play this week (GLD).

And that's today's stock report.... rolleyes.gif

Yesterday before close I put most of my money in a few choice stocks thinking we'd be up at the open. However, as a hedge I made a fairly significant trade against the euro in the forex market. I didn't think there'd be a big move either way. There is. Looks like we'll be down about 2% at the open. The Euro is down huge against the dollar so I made a killing on that trade. Unfortunately probably going to get killed on my stock picks (though not too bad according to early hours trading). If the market turns around and I time it right this could be a really good day wink.gif

If you held on to that SDS you'll be very happy this morning. It's up 5% in early hours trading. Might consider dumping it not long after the open today. Might want to stick it out for a little bit to see if we continue the downward trend in the market or if it turns around and moves a little towards the up side. The news causing the market to drop at the open isn't really anything that wasn't on the table yesterday afternoon while we made a big run-up near the close, so it's kinda hard to believe the whole day will be full of negatives.

BAC at 6.29 for the open it looks like. If you want a little upside maybe buy it early but banks are going to be hit hard for a while today at least. Depending on which experts you listen to there are some signs that banks might make a bit of a run towards the end of the year. I'm still about as bearish as you could possibly be about BAC. But, if it turns out to be a solid company it's very, very cheap currently...

If you follow where Warren Buffet puts his Billions in play, you will rarely go far wrong.


I sure hope mmi is right. Mr. Buffet invested a few billion in BAC recently.

Making money on GLD in last week at 171, out this week at 174, back in yesterday at 169.58

Taking it on the chin on SDS, in at 20.37, stop set at 19.30

I only have 100 shares of BAC, but think day trading it would be better than going long as I have been..

It's worth realizing two things about Mr. Buffet...

1 - He doesn't buy the same shares you buy. He gets preferred stock and at exceptional prices. Companies WANT him to invest with them so they give him VERY good deals.

2 - He invests with 5+ year horizons. If Buffet buys a stock today it doesn't give much light to whether he thinks it will go up or down in the near future. Typically it's an endorsement that he believes the company is good and that it will give strong returns over a 5-10 year period. Often times that period is outside the range of many investors. Good for 401ks, not so good for people trying to make some money betting on a particular stock rising in the nearish term.

Put my real money in CHK today. I'm liking an upside of $35 by the end of December. Looking for a nice 40% gain. Time will tell...
