MAY 29 - Memorial Day
Major change in my portfolio. As it has grown, today am deleting all transactions prior to 2017.
Portfolio will now reflect trades and profits  made in the year 2017 only.


MAY 25
Bought more MSFT this morning. Ex-div date is June 8th.
Currently reading a book on Jeff Bezos of Amazon.com.

MAY 24
AMZN up in early action.
NFLX  bought 30 shares Netflix.
AMZN bought more shares
TSLA bought more todsay
AAPL  Added to position
12:30pm cst. AMZN Took nice  profit, selling 7 of my 27 shares.
1:50 pm cst   NVDA  Bought new position today.



MAY 23
Holding tight for the moment.
MAY 22
NVDA starts off strong.


MAY 20 -  One week for almost perfect predictions

(written Friday AM, May 19)
Market off to a good start. I did my stock buying the last two days, will hold off today. We'll see if market can hold up the entire day, not sure it  can.

(written just after the close on 5/18)
Market did exactly what I said it would during the last hour. I'll provide my forecast for tomorrow later tonight. Have a good day!

(written 5/18 about 1 hr before the close)
LAST HOUR
Be careful, market up all day, expect some daytrade profit taking.

(Written 5/18 )
Market up this morning as predicted.
So far, our commentary written yesterday regarding stock market movement is totally correct.
After buying AAPL yesterday during the hysteria, I purchased more AAPL, TSLA , AMZN shares  today and also more of QQQ. 




(below written Wednesday, May 17)
Wednesday's Market reaction was normal. With all the hysteria about the Trump presidency, investors were scared off from buying and induced to selling.  During these types of selloffs, I would typically sell a portion of my holdings. Typically a few sessions later those equities I sold would be higher than my selling price. This time I decided to hold,  sell nothing and actually be a buyer. I bought more Apple shares today. Nothing changed in my reason for why  I own the core stocks in my portfolio. I see my core holdings appreciating in price, a bright future, with ever increasing earnings, growth and profits. I also consider the reason for  today's selloff to subside. The odds are in my favor in regards to impeachment of the president NOT happening.  
The stock market will go up or down regardless of one's political affiliation. The economy is on an uptrend and the market will gear stock prices on company profits at the end of the day. As Warren Buffet said, 'Buy when everyone else is selling'.
Already, relief on the Russian meddling issue has occurred with the announcement of a special council, ex-FBI  chief Muller to oversee it .Very soon, possibly starting even Thursday,  reversal of today's panic selloff. Today the DOW dropped over 300 points. Sometime this year the DOW will go up 300 plus points in one session. You know it. I know it.




MAY 19
9:00am CST. Of  my 4 core stocks, only NVDA is above it's share price when the Market crashed 300 points on Wednesday. AMZN and TSLA are close but AAPL is still two points away.

10:00am CST.  AMZN back up to share price before Wednesday market selloff.

MAY 17- 18
So far, our commentary written yesterday regarding stock market movement is totally correct.
After buying AAPL yesterday during the hysteria, I purchased more AAPL shares  today and also more of QQQ. 

Sold part of TSLA.... for profit.. freeing up capital for a planned new trade.

Bought NVDA.

Market returns to upward movement.
Bought more AMZN and rebought more TSLA.

MAY 16

TSLA ,as predicted touched 320 intraday today. See May 15 comments when I predicted that TSLA will hit 320 as early as today when it was down to 312!
8:55am cst bought more AAPL
AAPL. While some hedge funds has sold or trimmed their holdings on AAPL...which I think is absurd and flat dumb, Warren Buffet has doubled up on AAPL. Best thing is to be aware of all the good things to come to AAPL within a year and be patient.
1. AAPL .major beneficiary of corporate tax reform, corporate tax rates will be cut to 15% possibly
2. AAPL.  has $239 billion cash stacked abroad.  a flat reduced rate will be applied to earnings repatriated from abroad.    when AAPL brings the cash back home, it could result in a substantial dividend payout and share buyback for investors
3. AAPL   New iphone8  is expected to supercharge a sales cycle. First phone to be priced over $1,000 with a built in loyal buying audience.
4. AAPL making headway in sales of its wearable devices , making moves to expand its operations to emerging markets
5. AAPL reported record earnings this past quarter, thanks to better-than-expected sales.
6. AAPL stock still cheap, P/E lower than average of S&P 500.
MAY 15- Monday
8:30am CST. Opening remark. TSLA downgraded by MS.   Down to 312. Great opportunity to buy as I expect the stock to be over 320 by end of session tomorrow!
Updating the portfolio has been time-consuming. As of today, I will no longer show the numerous 1 or 2 two trades I make with ETF's such as no-commission Schwab ETF's ..ie SCHA and SCHB. I also will not show the dividends on stock that I've earned. In removing these items, my portfolio gains which showed 17,500 now only show 16,700. I will continue to report Stock trades.
10:20am Bought more TSLA this morning. Doing exactly what I said it would.


11:45AM cst.  AMZN , one of my core three stocks, showing no mercy  today, AMZN continues to throttle  upwards  strangling the bears



 COMMENTARY
2017 - Here's what I say will happen

1. US Economy improves:  Overall Trump administration  lower taxes leads to   higher corporate profits. Repartiation of overseas taxes to occur. More Jobs stay and come back to USA.
2.  US Dollar grows stronger as economy improves: making imported items cheaper.. makes it more attractive to hold dollar-denominated assets, attracting money into the U.S.
3.  FED  reserve raises rates : makes Finance/Bank stock sector stronger
4. OIL prices likely to  drop after initial bump increase. Stronger dollar makes buying oil more expensive and oil cartel has history of cheating on limits. Bottom line, comes down to supply and demand. Supply will continue to outstrip demand
5 Gold prices likely to continue long term trend to fall as dollar strengthens
===================================================
MAY 12
Reflection.
My big five : AAPL, AMZN, TSLA, NFLX, NVDA
However, most of you know that. What you don't know is my secondary five. They are as follows: GOOGL, BABA, FB MSFT, WDAY.  On the wait list, such stocks as JPM,  HPQ, ORCL CMG, BIDU, CRM.
9:00am CST. Highly considering adding to positions
9:10am CST AAPL. Bought more shares of aapl.
9:35am CST NVDA Sold remaining stock.

MAY 11
10:00am CST.  Opened a position on NVDA... better late than never. Still much upside. AI hardware for autos is NVDA's  very promising product.

10:00am CST. With market down, expect rebound shortly, trying to decide on what to buy on this dip among AMZN, AAPL, NFLX, and TSLA....    AAPL holding it;s own on EX-DIV date.

11:20am CST.  AAPL. Added to position. AAPL, very strong,  showing good strength on  EX-DIV date.

11:20 NVDA Added to position after opening position earlier.

1pm CST. Sold 15 shares of NVDA for profit, still hold 20 shares



MAY 10
Our two predictions on TSLA has already turned true. One prediction is the dip on TSLA after reporting earnings will become a huge buying opportunity as the stock will recover  .... and it did .

The second prediction was that the stock price will climb up higher this week than the close last Friday.

 My third prediction, made when TSLA was at 291 was that it will hit 350. It is on the way as it has climbed from 290 to 325 in five trading days !

MAY 9


NOTE: What is noted below was written during the week of May1 and was  correct.

Fat Cats show you how to play the report earnings game
TSLA (telsa). TSLA reported earning the evening (wed) and the earnings report and guidance are good, yet as it normally happens, mice are selling on the earnings  reporting news and the stock is down about 15 points to 300 in after market trading and then lower to 291. Do I need to tell you if the fat cats bought at this level?  Check it out by end of day on Thursday. If TSLA is at 300 or lower when the market opens thursday, I will be even buying more TSLA stock. I see TSLA in a very short period of time at a modest 350 in share price!

The mice, the same dummies that sold off AAPL the other night in error also as the same dummies that sold off TSLA tonight and early on thursday. ...Mice just don't learn.


AMZN: Cat and Mouse game. AMZN reports earning after the bell last thursday, stock explodes up 30 point in after-market trading. Cats then sell off on profit sharing to the mice on Friday as AMZN drops 30 points. 'Fat cats then buy back in on Monday as AMZN gains 30 points. Mice buy in as fat cats sell off on Tuesday and Wednesday. Fat cats now  ready to buy in again on our  amazing Amazon.

AAPL : Apple reports earnings after the bell on Tuesday. Mice unload in after market trading as AAPL drops down from nearly 148 to 144. Half way through after-market trading, our fat cats buy in at 144 and watch AAPL climb back up to nearly 147.5 on Wednesday.  Fat cats watch mice buy in as they take profits and watch AAPL drop in wednesday after-trading to below 146. Fat cats then came back in to buy at this level. Watch thursday's action.
Oh by the way, mice, AAPL pays it quarterly dividend May 11.... another thing the fat cars know!

TSLA (telsa). TSLA reported earning this evening (wed) and the earnings report and guidance are good, yet as it normally happens, mice are selling on the reporting news and the stock is down about 15 points to 300 in after market trading and then lower to 291. Do I need to tell you if the fat cats bought at this level?  Check it out be end of day on Thursday. If TSLA is at 300 or lower when the market opens thursday, I will be even more TSLA stock. I see TSLA in a very short period of time at a modest 350 in share price!

The mice, the same dummies that sold off AAPL the other night in error also as the same dummies that sold off TSLA tonight and early on thursday. ...Mice just don't learn.


May 5 update: TSLA stock which was down to 291 in  trading May 4 is now at the start of trading on May 5 (friday) above    TSL300 !

Right on on AAPL and AMZN. TSLA down a tid on Monday but still predicting TSLA will be higher by the end of the week than what it closed on last Friday.

9:45am cst. TSLA, as predicted, moving higher.
Bought more AMZN, TSLA and AAPL shares today

TSLA must be high on steroids today... pushing to touch 320 !
AMZN hit our target of 955 as predicted, now pushing hard to get to 959 !

11:15am cst, TSLA, AMZN, AAPL... at some point I'll sell these but as this stocks continuing to climb, I'll go along for the ride. (elon MUSK,  jeff  BEZOS, COOK) hard to beat.

BA  Sold 20 shares
NFLX  Bought 20 shares

See stock portfolio and daily commentary

INTELLIGENT  ANTICIPATION
This stock strategy is based on  anticipating events that will propel or freefall stock share prices.
Buying a stock on  Anticipation strategy  pertains to expecting an future event that will cause big stock movement. Intelligent analysis regarding the anticipation determines the probability of the event occuring and hence the risk involved in trading the stock. An example is the Anticipation that the Trump administration will lessen the restrictions on Banking  per the Dodd Frank Act. Trump all along indicated a willingness to remove or lessen the banking restrictions in the Dodd Frank act. Buying banking and finance stocks such as BAC, JPM in 'anticipation' of this occuring is a result of Intelligent Anticipation. We will continue to use this concept in future trading. Stay tuned for easy winners!

RAMP UP: DIVIDEND CAPTURE STRATEGY
This strategy is buying a stock prior to the stock going ex-dividend and selling the stock just prior to ex-dividend date. The build up or ramp up stock gain to the ex-dividend date is captured. Instead of getting the dividend, the stock gain is captured. Additionaly, one can Sell a Call upon purchase of the stock and capture that gain. Typically, on ex-div date, the stock will drop reflecting the dividend lost.

THE CLOUD
Everyone investing should own at least one 'Cloud' stock. Cloud services is a money machine.  MSFT reported again and beat expectations on earnings and revenue. MSFT took off last qtr reporting with it's cloud business while it's browser and office products stagnated. The top five 'Cloud' stocks, in my opinion, are GOOGL, IBM, AMZN, MSFT, and ORACLE. Others high up on the list are CSCO, HP, ATT (T).  I currently own three, IBM,  AMZN and MSFT. IBM has been in uptrend  the last six months.. AMZN on uptrend. Hey, I bought MSFT  day before reporting earnings, knowing it would relate to 'Cloud' services profit. Considering buying the 5 Cloud stocks listed above always a day or two before reporting earnings. Take your pick. Easy money.
 
BANKING
 With expected 3-5 Fed Reserve  rate increases in the next two years, profits will rise in the banking industry and with it, so will banking stock share price. It is difficult for me to find any reason not to own these three stocks. Upcoming expectations on lower taxes, fiscal stimulus and lighter regulation would all help banks.I believe we are just in the beginning of a bull market for finance/banking stocks.
Why dwell on market stocks that are old and tired. Instead one can jump and take a quantum leap abroad tigers awakening from their deep slumber of 2008 fame - FINANCE (BAC, GS, JPM)
The Game is about being in the right place at the right time.
Beware the Witch of Wall Street that wants you to be in sucker stocks


MAY 8
So far, 100% correct  as predicted.
As I said I will do, bought more AMZN shares this morning.
10:00am cst. Sold NFLX for net profit.
10;15am cst. Bought BA 


MAY 6,7 WEEKEND
If you look at my portfolio, you will think and see, on a consistent basis, I show owing stocks such as Apple.Telsa, Netflix, Amazon, and JP Morgan. However, that is not what I have. I have 'stock' and faith in  Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Tim Cook,  Reed Hastings, and Jamie Damon If those individuals would leave their respective companies, I would also. Think about it, having faith in MUSK, BEZOS, COOK, HASTINGS, and DAMON and to hold 'stock' in them should lend you to also being successful in their endevors. Collectivity having 'stock' in those individuals five years from now should continue to show the success they have shown in the past. You can't lose!

  AAPL will begin trading ex-dividend on 05/11/17 with a $0.63 dividend payable to shareholders of record as of 05/15/17. Last week I pocketed a net profit of $103 on an AAPL  call option. This week I will get the dividend. Next week I will sell another call option. >>> just adding adding to profit!

Bezos sells one billion worth of AMZN and the stock only drops 1.5% on selling pressure. AMZN is our stock to watch this coming week. I see the fat cats buying in if they haven't already.
By the by, Bezos sells AMZN stock every year and puts it into his Blue Origin space company.


Tesla stock bears are living a huge nightmare. Every morning they wake up to see TSLA  stock crossing a new price milestone.  Expect TSLA to  announce more positive moves and end higher at the end of this week.

AMZN, despite a huge sell of stock by ceo Bezos to finance his space exploration, AMZN held it's own during this huge selling pressure. I would like to own even more AMZN and  see a change to a positive trend upwards this week.

AAPL, a no brainer, the stock will pay a dividend to shareholders as of May 11. Do you really think AAPL stock will drop this week?  Seriously.

MAY 5
9:00AM cst.  TSLA stock which was down to 291 in  trading May 4 is now at the start of trading on May 5 (friday) above   300 !
10:00AM cst.  TSLA stock now up to 302. Hopefully the 'mice' will not get back in.
10:30AM cst. As we predicted, TSLA continues to climb, now at 304. Those who sold on earnings reporting ... on way down to 291 must now be very sad.
In the meantime, I've up my target from 350 to 365.

10:35am cst. AAPL.  On monday I sold an AAPL call to open MAY5 149.00. At the moment AAPL has climbed back to 148. With the dividend coming up next week, to be safe, I closed the option at .06. Net gain on the option,  a nice $103.78. 


MAY 4
11:15am cst. As stated in our beginning brief on top of this posting, bought  more shares of TSLA at 296.09
The mice have sold and now the fat cats are coming back in.
1:45pm  In last three hours, with the fat cats coming back to buy TSLA, has seen TSLA climb from 290.50 today to around 297. That's what it's all about. Mice lose


MAY 2
Bought more shares of Apple.

An old stockmarket trader, who  does very well, told me to buy Jet Blue (JBLU). I asked him why?
He said, "I FEEL IT IN MY BONES'. For the hell of it, bought 100 shares of JBLU today!

MAY 1
'Snowflake wallstreeter'  panic at the immediate downturn of any stock. Don't be one.

Added to AAPL position giving 100 shares To open, sold AAPL option, 149.00 May5 gaining $120.
Added to NFLX position.

AAPL. Cash horde nears 250 billion !


APR 25
One day prior to Trump's tax change annoucements, the market is in high gear. I made a number of transactions today... got back into finance by buying BAC and JPM, Bought NFLX, unloaded NUGT.
Bought CAT. Added to AAPL position.



APR 24
Added to AAPL position/

Bought BAC and JPM

APR 22-23
Gold trending upward with world tensions, OIL trending down with US rigs up and oversupply.
Apple and TSLA up sharply in after-market trading.AAPL to announce dividend increase.


APR 21th
Am a  buyer of MSFT if it drops to 66.
APR 20th

Bought WDAY (Workday).
Maybe more TSLA. Thinking hard about NFLX.
APR 17th
APPLE.

APR 10th
Was up in the Cocoa Beach/Melbourne Florida area all last week. Enjoyed the beach as some hot weather days prevailed. Back to market action prior to Easter.

Sold all BAC... Finance / banking stocks currently not in vogue
Bought more TSLA and AMZN.. These hot stocks are not done!


MAR 17
Happy St. Patrick's day !
Bought more Phillip Morris (PM)
Bought SCHC, SCHD, SCHB SCHH ETF'S.
Sold GS Goldman Sachs for profit.
Limited orders in to buy Visa (V) and SCHV.

MAR 16
getting ready to purchase a number of SCHa SCHB SCHC SCHV SCHG schwab etf's....

MAR 13
Monday's...sometines one just sits back and lets the weekend hype and fear subside to a more pragmatic Tuesday.

MAR 10
end of session  today. Sold MO, ADP, and TRV. Combining all three, came up with net profit. Selling on the Friday frees up over $9,000 in cash for next week... My sell calls do not get exercise allowing me to write more next week against my holdings of BAC.
 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TRV. When to sell a loser? Have captured the dividend on TRV but showing a loss on the stock. Debating whether to sell... if sold will take a small loss.  Question is ..Can I do better selling the stock and using the cash to purchase another equity which will be of better use of the funds? If sold, would result in an overall net loss of around $30.00 but will free up $3,000 in cash.

ADP  This morning currently at 104.22 and raising. Likely to sell if it can reach 104.50 or better.

VZ, T.  Time to look at buying these  two telephone stocks, maybe next week

BAC.  The 25.50 and 26.00 options I have on these will, at current BAC share price, expired and my BAC stock will not be called in. This will allow me on Monday to open options to Sell Calls and rack in more money.
BAC  Collusion issue causing banking stocks down today. Sold 200 shares at 25.10,  betting that can buy back at lower price. Commission to buy back will only cost me $4.95.

MAR 9
JPM. I don't think the highly expected fed rate increase is baked into finance and banking stocks. Bought 28 more share of J P Morgan this morning to bring total share count to 100. This will allow me to write a sell covered call at some point.
JPM Am not opposed to writing a sell call 93.50 if JPM gets to 92.

BAC Limited order in to buy/sell combo stock and call option.
BAC Bought 100 shares at 25.50 and sold call mar24 26.50 at 16, netted 15.35 on the option as in a combo my commission on the option  was only  .65 cents. If I get called, I will gain $100 on the stock less commissions.

PM Bought more PM. Goes ex-div
PM  Declared $1.04 per shr dividend today, effective ex-div date is mar 13th.


V and BA. Still very interested in buying these two stocks for price appreciation




MAR 8

MAR 7
HD  Yet another Dividend Capture strategy winner! Captured dividend yesterday and sold stock for profit today.

KO  As indicated in our 'eyeballs focus on' , bought KO today, another Dividend Capture candidate as it goes ex-div Mar 13. In this case, might play any 'ramp up' to ex-div date and sell right before.

BAC.. Bought 100 shares and sell call mar10 25.50 to pick up $14.00.

AAPL  Limited order in to buy more AAPL.
AAPL  Bought more Apple.

V  Added visa to 'eyeballs' focus watch

MAR 6
No  trades today. No need to trade every single session day.
Decided to hold HD even though the stock price likely will be depressed tomorrow as it goes ex-div.
PRIOR TO SESSION OPEN : COMMENTS
Likely to sell HD for nice profit.
Looking hard on TRV for possible sell.
Likely to buy KO, T, VZ in very near future
Expecting BAC, JPM, GS to start strong today
AAPL. Considering purchasing even more


MAR 3
Did some trading in BAC

MAR 1
Broker's commission wars. My broker is at 4.95 per trade.
TRV  Considering  buying TRV.
TRV   09:15am cst. Bought 25 shares. A capture dividend play. Goes ex-div on march 8th.

BAC  Sold 100 of the 500 shares own. Profit is $283.00 on the 100 shares bac and also captured the dividend today.

PEP.  Very likely to sell today. Have captured dividend.
PEP   Sold. yet another Div Capture strategy winner. Got the Dividend and make profit on sell of stock.

ADP  Another dividend play. Bought 30 shares.


FEB 28
Sold WMT. Down today due to news that Buffet unloaded
Bought PM. PM on a tear...let's go for the ride

PEP.  Likely to sell today, one day prior to going ex-div. Sometimes one plays the Dividend Capture strategy by playing the run-up to the ex-div. PEP usually goes down on value on ex-div date.

BAC. Our moniker is 'rob the markets blind' and I would like to steal  $21.00 from Mr Market. How? By buying 100 shr  BAC and sell a mar3 call at .22. The stock is at 24.52. I buy the stock at 24.52 and sell the mar3 24.50 call at $22.00. I get the 22.00 and the mar 1 dividend of 7.50 for at total of 29.50 and pay a commission of 6.95 plus .75. I net over $21..80.
BAC.. Did above trade at 100shr bac at 24.5 and sell call mar3 24.50 at 21.00.

MCD. Captured the dividend yesterday. Likely to sell MCD if the stock can move up a tiny bit more today.
MCD  Yet another Dividend Capture win. Captured dividend and made profit on the stock. Sold.
HD  Doubled up share purchase today.



FEB 27
No action today. Expect some  trades tomorrow

DAL  Another dividend capture winner. Sold for profit and captured  the dividend.
TSLA Sold all
JNJ  Goes ex-div tomorrow but currently have approx $170 profit in JNJ. Likely I will sell today prior to ex-div and lock in profit. JNJ most likely will drop tomorrow and more than the div pays.
This is another angle in the Dividend Capture strategy which is to play the 'ramp up' to the dividend and sell just prior to it  going ex-div.
JNJ  Sold all, captured profit on stock.

It is speculated that removing restrictions from Dodd Frank will take up to 4 years. I seriously doubt it and as banking/finance stocks are down today, it makes an excellent opportunity to buy in. BANKING  stocks, if nothing else, will trend upwards as the Federal Reserve bank makes several rate increases in the next two years.
FEB 7
Boeing flying high!
Bought more BA stock today. Tomorrow the stock goes ex-div so that more than paid for the commission on stock. BA ready to ride on big uptrend.
NVDA. Have a limited order in to buy NVDA.


INTELLIGENT  ANTICIPATION
This stock strategy is based on  anticipating events that will propel or freefall stock share prices.
Buying a stock on  Anticipation strategy  pertains to expecting an future event that will cause big stock movement. Intelligent analysis regarding the anticipation determines the probability of the event occuring and hence the risk involved in trading the stock. An example is the Anticipation that the Trump administration will lessen the restrictions per the Dodd Frank Act. Trump all along indicated a willingness to remove or lessen the banking restrictions in the Dodd Frank act. Buying banking and finance stocks such as BAC, JPM in 'anticipation' of this occuring is a result of Intelligent Anticipation. We will continue to use this concept in future trading. Stay tuned for easy winners!

JAN 31
Last day of a very interesting month. Market enduring a fear stage which makes it a wonderful opportunity to pick up some stocks at a lower price. Eyeballs focused on BAC, JNJ at the moment. With the Fed Reserve bank very likely to raise interest rates 3-5 times in the next two years, I see BAC at least hitting 30 but the main factor will be to sell weekly coverred calls and pick up profit that way.

JAN 30
JAN 28
Bought IBM stock.

10:00 Bought 20 shrs of SCHB. My broker provides this trade  at no commission.

10:07  Likely to sell CSCO. Captured $26.00 on the dividend and would like to sell CSCO stock at even or small profit. This will free up more cash to go after another Dividend  Capture stock,

10:17 Bought 20 more shares SCHB today.

11:08  Dividend capture play. Bought 100 shr PFE at 33.42  and Sold a Call option to open, PFE JAN27 34.00 at $22.00. Dividend pays 32.00 and goes ex-div on 2/1.

2:29pm Just sold all T for profit, bypassing tomorrow's ex-div.
2:00pm Limited order in to buy NFLX

12:15pm
After review, it appears I am very likely to sell some or all of VZ and T today. Although ex-div date is tomorrow to lock in the dividend, it appears that the stock, from a historical aspect, will drop more than the dividend amount to be received tomorrow. I currently have a nice profit in both VZ and T and can lock the profit in by selling the stock. I currently have 450 combined shares. It will also free up funds for other trades this month.

To offset that, sold totall of  325 shares of BAC today even through I am sure it will pop back next week. Sold all of XLF and sold 10 shares of GS. Made profits on all those trades.

THE FINANCE BULLDOGS
* GOLDMAN SACHS
*  J. P. MORGAN
*  BANK OF AMERICA
EYEBALLS FOCUS ON the final week of 2016


"In the current cycle the trend for the following :


Strong Dollar : Highest since 2003 (UUP). 
Remember a stronger dollar has a negative affect on oil prices

Bonds: Bond prices have dropped , corporate tax rates expected to drop via congress next year will have a big positive impact on company profits and will likely push bond holders to move money to stocks.  Interest rates went up and  expected to continue in 2017 causes Bonds prices TO DROP

GOLD Prices: Gold's trend has been downward all year. With a stronger dollar as an example, gold prices will continue downward. Stock market strength and continued increases in fed rates will have negative impact on gold in 2017 as it tests a drop to the 1,000 price mark. (DUST)

OIL PRICES:  OPEC's announced cut expected to start Jan 1 but Crude Oil is back to where it was before the OPEC announcement. Expect OIL to fall hard. (SCO, DUG, DNO)
Stock prices: Continue expectation of FINANCE/BANK stocks to continue to trend upward
Why dwell on market stocks that are old and tired. Instead one can jump and take a quantum leap abroad tigers awakening from their deep slumber of 2008 fame - FINANCE (BAC, GS, JPM)
The Game is about being in the right place at the right time.
Beware the Witch of Wall Street that wants you to be in sucker stocks


DEC 26
Market opens up Tuesday for the last week of the year... which means getting set up for  the first two weeks of January when the new money pours in...
DEC 23
Flat market ends week before Christmas.

DEC 22
Sold AIG and TRV for profit and to free up cash.
Closed Put option on BAC.

DEC 21
Interestingly, both MO and PM tobacco stocks up today, one day after going ex-div. I locked into the PM dividend. I see both stocks as a buy.

After capturing the dividends, am considering selling AIG and TRV, both winners, to free up cash and lock in profits. Not sure when or if the move will be made.

BAC has been trading in the range of 22.25 to 23.25 for the last two weeks, at the moment, holding the stock.

Limited order in to purchase 25 shrs DAL which will bring me up to 200 shares. Oil, my friend, will go down, not up.

DAL trading in narrow range of 50.25 to 51.25 last two weeks.

EYEBALLS FOCUS ON BANK OF AMERICA
BAC started it's heated move after the Nov election. It's expected that the Trump reign will reduce regulated banking rules and the Fed will increase interest rates, both of which are positives for finance/banking stocks. BAC has already bloated up 30% in one month  since the election  and the 'Crowd' is worry that the movement will end. However, BAC, now sitting at $23.09 on Friday's close,  is nowhere near it's ten year high in the $55 share range.

 Although profit sharing, such as on Monday, Dec 12+13,  and expected scare pump pundit writings will occur, overall BAC should sometime in 2017 test it's 10 year highs.

An anology of sorts that I have related in the past pertains to the Dow of 2008 going into 2009. In March of 2009, the DOW broke out of it's bear run pertaining to the financial crisis of 2008 and went up 1,000 points. After gaining 1,000 points I wrote about getting back into the market. The peanut gallery at that time laughed at me and said I was a sucker for going in 'too late'. However, as we all now, the market and the Dow continues a great movement upward the rest of the year. The one month gain of BAC is only the beginning. I fully expect ongoing consistent gains in the finance/banking sector as we go forward into 2017. This is one of the rare moments to get into a sector at it's bull beginnings. 

DEC 15 AFTER HOURS
Rough week turns on great Thursday session.

DEC 15

Bought for insurance purposes.  BAC 12/23 23.00 put option.
Sold to lock in good profit, 100 shares BAC.


Portfolio keeping profit over $11k although  the week so far has been rough compared to last week.
Still expect Finance/Banking to continue up-trend although profit taking this week has slowed it down. Airlines doing well and hanging in there thru  OPEC's phony announcement to cut production.
Who will be first to cheat? Probably Iraq.

9:05am est Bought 2 more shares AMZN getting back to 8 total.  Sold 100 shrs SCHB
Bought 40 shr DUST today.
Lost  16 lbs since Sept 1st. Need to buy some new belts.
12:45pm cst... Portfolio still hanging with $7,100 profit in third down day in four this week


After going to estate sales for a few years now, I'm come to the conclusion that most in my area do a three day sale with no negotiation. The first day most items are sold at 'ebay' retail or higher. The second day the remaining items are discounted 25%, the third day the discount is 50%. Items that don't sell are typically taken to a local  weekly consignment auction and sometimes many of the items go for next to nothing.
After going to many estates sales and talking to many of the patrons, my conclusion is that most of the buyers in the first hours  are resellers...either those who sell online or resell from antique mall booths or  thrift shops. Some of the higher price items resell at antique shops. Some of the early buyers are those who ship and  sell to resellers in large market areas like New York. Prices in smaller market typically go for less than those in large markets. Large markets have more buyers and hence higher competition which lead to higher prices. Although I think most of the early buyers are savvy, they also fall to the frenzy at the opening and overpay for items that can be purchased online at same or lower prices. Many of the early buys are items such as jewelry, furniture, and art.
There are  items, due to the sheer volume, where the estate doesn't price some  items at retail. These are such items as clothes, books, and vinyl records. There are those who consistently go to those sections and use their smart phones to look up prices and look for steals.
In the future I will give my take on other items selling at estate sale. such as:. non brand glassware, brand name glassware and crystal, figurines, watches, pots and pans,  mugs, past their prime collectibles, vintage signs, photos, military,  tools, upcoming in-demand collectibles, collectible memorabilia (ephermera) such as posters, magazines,vintage documents, toys, etc. ...more to come.
.......   Guns, coins.? ..sorry, don't see these at estate sales normally.


OCT 5
Market opens with purchases of AMZN and NFLX.. ye ole favorites
My DUST daytrade went well yesterday... will do from time to time
9:35am cst  Bought 100 shares of BAC Bank of America
9:35am cst  Sold AAPL Apple
10:15am   AMZN and NFLX already intra-day winners even with commission fee. We know what we're doing !
11:00am NFLX and AMZN continue to hold adult strength. BAC staying even. V, JPM, PCLN doing fine.  AAPL doing nothing on an up market day.  BABA starting to show some movement.


OCT 4
10:10am cst Sold all of AMZN with plan to repurchase at lower levels
10:20am cst  Bought a stock not one of our normal buys,, bought 50 shr DUST !
11:00am cst DUST in the wind continues strong climb..looking at daytrade close later today
12:25pm cst Gold keeps dropping as DUST keeps rising. I like this DUST !
1:45pm  cst Bought 50 more shares of DUST
 Forecast-beating U.S. manufacturing data stoked expectations that the Federal Reserve will lift interest rates which in turn has caused gold to drop and stocks in general.
2:10pm No need to be greedy...sold all DUST with nearly $150.00 one day profit.

A look at 15 stocks

WFC ...Buffet better sell as this dog will continue to drop drop drop. My recommendation is to sell short or buy Put Options
AMZN.. In accumulation mode... smart money buying it up as it continues to  target 1,000 per shr
TSLA.. I am neutral on Tesla... As sales pushes it upwards, I see whiplash on the horizon
NFLX  ....... Very volatile but overall  trend is upwards after poor report
TWTR ........  .... I see somebody buying twitter... high risk high reward
 BABA ..... good time to buy as is in holding pattern..overall trend.. Up
FB .... news of Marketplace hurts Ebay but still see FB as neutral
QQQ ... see a winner for the eighth straight year.. bought each yr in summer and sold late 4th qtr
AAPL ... getting interest from smart money.. one needs a lot of patience with this stock
GOOGL... weak of late but did hit all time high in September. Still has a long ways to go up more.
V ....  Slow but good mover... might accelerate soon. keep eyeballs on it
AZO.. Looked at autozone for awhile but don't see any reason to buy
PCLN..  very likely to buy... just doesn't quit
BIDU ... Always liked the stock but just too erratic, requires near perfect timing...
UA.. Underarmour.. another stock I've liked in the past but hasn't done anything since last May

OCT 3
Beginning of a new month. Portfolio up three straight months, going for four straight
My portfolio sitting on $7,000 profit going into Oct. Let's see what'll it be at the end of October

Are  you a fan of FAN.
F = Facebook  FB
A = Autozone AZO
N = Netflix NFLX
                                                       
SEPT 30
Hell yes, it's Friday ...


A new feature is a list I will be creating of stocks I follow where  news comments could have a lasting bearing on the stock price. Today the following is listed

CHANGING LANDSCAPE 
Sept 29,2016..AMZN:  Amazon could soon compete with UPS and FedExpress. Stock price 828

SEPT 29
1:30pm cst bought back AMZN shares.

Closed NFLX and sold some of AMZN. Ready to buy them again on further dip.
Even though the market has been tough the last two months, one day up, one day down, yet my portfolio keeps growing upwards in profit. WE KNOW WHAT WE'RE DOING !

SEPT 28
AAPL showing strength..
Sold some of AMZN,  taking profit at all-time high price.
*****************************************************************************
AAAA  - THE BIG 4 A'S

Alphabet (GOOGL). At 19 times earning, growing better than that..considered cheap, talk about buying twitter and turning it into a money maker

Alibaba (BABA). Currently at 107...valued at 135. Growing Sales at a 40% clip!

Amazon (AMZN). Fab web cloud services.. Target shares  at 1,000. Awaiting huge volume this Christmas season

Apple (AAPL). Unbelievable cheap, owns smart phone market, will get tax relief on overseas cash horde.
*******************************************************************************
10:15am cst.. I have a limited order to steal and buy BABA at 106.50. Hope it drops a point to that today.
BOUGHT BABA


SEPT 27
Bought more shares of AMZN today.
Bought more SCHB.

Some profit taking today... Looking at NFLX making a move.
SEPT 22
Watching portfolio grow...
Sold all of BIDU and bought 2 more shrs of GOOGL.




1:15 cst  As FED leaves rates unchanged, sold JPM and bought the BULLDOG BIDU.
10:10 Cst.. Bought 50 shrs JPM at 66.79.

Limit order in on JPM...continuing to look at BIDU and MSFT. Should I get even more AMZN?


SEPT 20
Bought 100 shrs SCHB (No commission).



SEPT 14
Bought AAPL, sold NFLX for profit.


SEPT 13
My eyeballs are now focus on GOOGL. GOOGL among other things started a 2-day delivery service to compete with Amazon's prime. GOOGL is now expanding that service to other cities for 95.00 a year and considering overnight deliveries from such concerns as Costco. One thing needed by GOOGL to really compete is 'something else' in the $95.00 annual fee. That could be a media serivice like NFLX. 

SEPT 12
Remain lean and mean. We know what we're doing !

SEPT 9
Sold all of FB.
We know what we're doing. Portfolio now lean but mean. In this stage of negativity and
volatility it was decided to keep only a few stocks active. Looking now for great buying opportunities.


SEPT 8
Market up and down. Sold NFLX but bought back 40 shares
SEPT 7
Bought 30 shrs FB   this morning

Eyeballs focus on AAPL ... if it hits 99 or lower, I'm a buyer

Will rebuy them at lower price.


AUG 16 - WORDS TO THE WISE

Soros sells FB AMZN, NFLX...seriously doing that  before these stocks turn it up in the 4th quarter. Soros, as dumb as it comes, turns senile...selling these stocks when it's actually the time to buy!
..... the the weak and meek sell these stocks on aug 15 causing a down day for them. Watch these stocks perk up.

In the meantime, Warren Buffet doubles up on AAPL. He knows what he's doing!

AMZN will own the Christmas gift buying season and hit the big 1,000 mark !

AAPL will bring out the iphone7 and next year get a massive tax break on the cash horde held in Ireland.

I am keeping my eyeballs open on AMZN and QQQ.

Submitted limited buy orders to purchase UA at 42.00 and QQQ at  117.25 
Bought 50 shr QQQ at 117.25
Bought 20 more shrs NFLX at 95.58
Buy recommendation:  MSFT. I already own 100 shrs but today it is ex-div which allows one to pick up stock at discount.

NFLX hanging around 95. I think between now and the christmas holidays it'll easily get to 105 which means a 1,000 gain for one, like me,  holding 100 shrs.





Aug  15
AAPL:  Ongoing dialogue and rumors surrounding the iphone 7 will drive AAPL stock between now and Sept 16.

MSFT: Goes ex-dividend aug 16



Aug 12
PORTFOLIO OVER 6K IN PROFITS

Tough day in the market. Looking at IBM.        



Aug 11
Comments from JOEFA
Has been silent about his QQQ put lost


bought 30 more shares of NFLX.

Day looks bright for our portfolio stocks....

Comment from the peanut gallery.....
Stocks to avoid.. Disney DIS... the disney disease
                              Telsa  TSLA tease
                               BIDU  the bulldog bear

Aug 10
I hope Netflix drops lower. I have a limit order to buy at 91.94
AMZN web services arm continues to print money.
AMZN has over 1 millions customers using it's cloud services.

Comments from the peanut gallery

" "Cloud Computing", by definition, refers to the on-demand delivery of IT resources and applications via the Internet with pay-as-you-go pricing"      from AMZN webservices website

Aug 9 after-hours
JCP. M(Macy's),  KSS, and JWN all worthy of put option action or shorting. Hedge it by going long AMZN.




Aug 8
Comments from the peanut gallery....from Eric Jhonsa Aug 6, 2016
.... In the fast-growing and rapidly changing world of cloud infrastructure services (IaaS) such as cloud computing and cloud storage, Amazon (AMZN) , Microsoft (MSFT) and Alphabet's (GOOGL) Google are quickly distancing themselves from the pack.

My eyeballs see red regarding TSLA. Beware. Also maybe good to short on buy puts on the storefront retail companies reporting this week.




Aug 5
Market finally up today.

Poor JoeJustJoe, sold calls on QQQ and bought QQQ puts. At least he has until aug 12 to recover.

Bought 100 shr UA.. Under Armour taking over Golf business from Nike. Has 3d printed shoes, looking good in Rio. Growing with more jobs in Baltimore.


Aug 4 after hours.

Went to estate sale  and got some inkwells. Had some fountain pens but will go there in the morning to see if still available at 25% off second day. One of the secrets of buying at auctions and estate and garage sales is buying fountain pens. Some of those go for hundreds of dollars on ebay!

Aug 4
Joker JoejustJoe (see comments)  , two in a row winning streak with QQQ. Let' s see if he can make it 3 in a row.

Porfolio continues to climb upwards even in a dismal Dow market

Is TRUMP dead in the water?

FB looking good today.

Aug 3
Is the Trump train...at the end of the line ????
Trump self destructs ..basically over.. The man loses due to EGO.
Clinton in.. 4 more years of crap.. How sad.
In the meantime, the stock market roars. Bears go by the wayside.

Aug 3
2:05PM CST. BOUGHT 100 SHARES OF MSFT...
..Why I bought MSFT....   MSFT is a different company now with it's cloud revenues. It hit 10 billion and is expected to easily hit 20 billion by 2018. Even other cloud companies, ie GOOGL, IBM, AMZN, salesforce... haven't hit 10 billion yet.

Looks like another down day for the market. AAPL ready to bounce back.
Eyeballs looking at MSFT...

Aug 2
Good morning.
The Joe Joker got lucky with his put qqq  trade, however, smarted it up by now buying qqq calls.
Good move.

Aug 1 after-hours
Poor JoeJustJoe, an old adversary, recklessly buying puts on the mighty Nasdaq as  the
Nasdaq stocks start a new dawn of pricing climbing upwards! ok, maybe good for a one day strategy but long term it's murder.
Icahn in tears as the buffoon, Warren Buffet, laughing his a** off with his boatload of AAPL stock..
CLOUD stocks in huge bull market.... AMZN, MSFT, GOOGL
Stocks my eyeballs are looking at : MSFT   UA   V



Aug 1
August is a hot month...so will be the market. Bears Beware!
July 29
GOOGL showing adult strength.



July 28 afterhours
AMZN ROCKS !

July 28
AMZN  sold 5 shrs, holding  the rest
FB sold part of holdings (80 shrs) today taking advantage of spike
AMZN on a move today prior to earnings reporting. Might sell part  today, still thinking
GOOGL pushing upward
                                                             AMAZING AMAZON


July 27 after hours
FB blows past expectations...rocking in after-hours trading

Comment:  One comment I received here is that instead of buying an order of OREX this person is buying an  odor of OREX... Smells sometimes  take one I guess !

July 19 afterhours....
BUYING during panic modes are highly profitable... for example.. the greek crisis, the british exit, and now NFLX price increase... people are not going to stop watching media.. they didn't during the 1920's depression and they are not now.

July 19
NFLX in panic sell today,,, time to buy.. Bought 50 shrs. Could drop lower but will come back way over 85 per share.  Fools think it's the end of the world for Netflix... how dumb.

July 14
" Today's Bears are the Dumb Money, The pessimists are continually proven wrong"
John Persinos

 

Whatever happen about the Britexit  problem... wasn't that suppose to be the end of the economic world? LOL



July 10 - evening

TSLA ceo Musk speaks out about announcing a secret plan this week for Tesla.
UA about to denote partners to raise shareholder equity.


July 8 after hours

Now up over $2,200..... and away we go!

AAPL today at 96.64...between now and Christmas holiday, AAPL easily will go over 100...  Dividend will pay for commission.
Market up today regardless of terrible violence and Clinton reopening of investigation by State Dept.



July 1
Prediction was Dow advancing over 500 points one day this week. Instead advanced over 500 in a three day period. In other words, about the same.
New prediction.
 Amazing AMZN hits the 730 mark by end of next week
