In every cycle there is some industry whose stocks do not just rise; they go up up up One hot month, just the beginning, folks

3J 'put' out to pasture  (guy in comments section) wiped out , destroyed on BAC puts

 Combining the eyeball strategy with the JOKER stock buys for all you JOKERS out there!

"In every cycle there is some industry whose stocks do not just rise; they go up up up 500, 700 percent".
At the end of the day, a pair of human eyes has to read the numbers, and the brain behind them will need to make a decision, either smart or not.
Fellow JOKERS , do not be FOOLish, think Finance
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
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

Ah, the easy life, making money hands-over-fist in retirement

Veterans day
Correction on SCHA price. Had typo. instead of 52.36, bought 11/10 at 57.36. Also correction on DAL for 11/10. Evidently had a hangover from the trump election won.

With the election over and Trump winning in an upset victory, turnover in favorable and out of favor stocks materialize. Big tech stocks out of favor, Big Bank and Finance red hot. Our portfolio has changed accordingly and without hesitation.

Most people who work have a retirement plan in a 401k, 403k
The only way to make a profit in these plans is in a bull market as all your money are long stocks or bonds. Self traded investments do not need to be in a bull market to make money as you control everything.

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.

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.

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 !

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

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
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

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

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 !

AAPL showing strength..
Sold some of AMZN,  taking profit at all-time high price.

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 more shares of AMZN today.
Bought more SCHB.

Some profit taking today... Looking at NFLX making a move.
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?

Bought 100 shrs SCHB (No commission).

Bought AAPL, sold NFLX for profit.

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. 

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

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.

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

Been sitting on sidelines.We know what we're doing.

AUG 31

Ah, the end of August as the most excitingand  beginning part of the season for bulls commence.

AUG 30
Sold all of SBUX and MSFT   for net profit.
Eyeballs focus on AAPL ... if it hits 99 or lower, I'm a buyer


AUG 26
My eyeballs are now fixated on banking stocks.
Added to AMZN position today.
Sold SCHB for $477.00 net profit.

AUG 25
Sold all of UA today, took profit.
Sold part of NFLX taking over $600.00 profit. Likely to buy more later however.
Eyeballs now fixated on MOMO.

AUG 24
SBUX up today. Bought yesterday, we know what we're doing ! 

AUG 23
Bought 55 shrs SBUX
Sold all of GOOGL.. took profits

bought UA 100 shr 
EYEBALLS NOW SHIFT and look at goldman sachs GS....

AUG 17
Took profit in two positions today: Sold all of AMZN and 50 shrs of AAPL
Will rebuy them at lower price.


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

Tough day in the market. Looking at IBM.        

Aug 11
Comments from JOEFA

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 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
..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..

July 20 -
mid morning report... NFLX on the move, AAPL hits 100  again .... AMZN pushing hard this week to make 750... MSFT trending upwards

MSFT now making money on it's traditional products ....but more importantly ,,,,,kicking it up on it's Cloud services!  Bought 100 shares  today.

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

Always ahead of Bears and Joker Joe's of the world.
AMZN weaklings who sold last Tuesday are STILL in tears....
Looking at a few new stocks to buy... stay tuned
Bought some more 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
