Re: SWKS Reports

Rob,
Your question goes to the very heart of what I find so valuable in adopting Saul's methods (disclaimer here, I have adopted my impression of Saul's methods - and that's what I'll relate. Read the KB and his and other contributor's posts if [more]

Re: Saul's Historical Results

I should probably not post this comment - I'm not sure I have anything to add that hasn't already been posted, but I'll give it a shot anyway.

First, this entire thread is deja vu, I feel as though I've been here before. And not too awfully [more]

Re: SWKS dropping with AAPL

I'm thinking that the sympathetic drop in SWKS as a reaction to AAPL guidance is an over-reaction (which I'm beginning to understand to be the norm).

First, $1.85 EPS met the consensus of the 39 analysts who follow AAPL. YoY revenue growth [more]

Re: Interactive Brokers IRA?

Yes, I had a Roth account with IB, but it was opened under unusual circumstances. I had two accounts at Options First (a Scottrade broker). They ceased trading operations and migrated their accounts to IB. I ended up with two accounts at IB. A [more]

Re: Temperament is important

I would add that it is my opinion that Saul does not suffer from the need to be right that afflicts so many investors and impairs decision making. The unfortunate truth is that we are all human and making mistakes and errors in judgment comes with [more]

Re: More on the Economy

Which brings me to the point, if you’re still with me: The global economy is sliding into a recession. If the healthier economies, like the US and the UK raise interest rates too soon, it will draw money away from those already slowing export [more]

Re: Question for Saul & Others

DJ,
Actually, I moved my account from IB about a month ago. Could be I was paying $5 a trade because my account was originally migrated from Options First. May have been that a couple of companies were reaping a commission from each transaction [more]

Re: Price graphs

B,
Don't quite know what to say. I too run Win7 and the little ap from Steve runs flawlessly. Might it have something to do with down under? I doubt it, just a snide remark. I've not clue, well maybe a tiny clue. Make sure the ap and the text [more]

Re: ABMD - A new try-out stock in my portfolio

Saul,
You're an old hand at this sort of thing. I'm a newbie. I tried wading through their reports and just got befuddled. It's not that I don't trust you, quite to the contrary, I was trying to follow your advice of doing my own due diligence. [more]

Re: Pssst!!!! Follow the money

If stock has very little movement, and you pretty much expect that to continue, you could actually get a better return from selling the put than owning the stock. In this case, you're using leverage to generate some "excitement" around [more]

Re: ABMD - A new try-out stock in my portfolio

Saul,
Thanks for your most informative post.

I noticed this stock on your June summary so I thought I'd take a look. I first looked at "adjusted Actual EPS" at Fidelity (which is where I've consolidated all my accounts). Things [more]

Re: Skechers suing Steve Madden

Neil - I didn't look at like that. I guess I agree with you. I too hope it's not indicative of a slow down in earnings. I'm also long SKX.

They've just filed an infringement suit. What do you expect them to say? Something like, "....and we believe this is sort of hurting our business we think."
