No Leadership

I made another 1.5% today, on the backs of the fucktarded bank stocks going lower. I’m sure you are upset to see “The Fly” making so much money, in such a short time frame—while you book egregious short term losses. However, I’ll have you know, I’m not done yet. By the end of the year, “The Fly” will be so rich, he will buy all of the houses on his block, bulldoze them, then proceed to build low-end housing developments, much to the chagrin of my neighbor’s.

By the way, I hate the assholes over at [[RIMM]] and [[AAPL]].

There is no leadership.

Just today, we has significant breakdowns in [[BIDU]], [[DECK]], [[SOHU]], [[DWSN]], [[CME]], [[RIMM]], [[AAPL]], [[BID]], [[NOV]], [[AMZN]], [[PCLN]], [[ICE]], [[IHP]], [[CMG]], [[HAR]], [[SIGM]], [[CRM]] and [[GS]].

Where are the leaders, jackass?

[[RL]]? [[MFLX]]? [[IIG]]? or [[NFLX]]?

Good luck with that.

At the end of the day, I’m all about banking coin, while throwing old men into oncoming traffic. At this point, nothing can get in “The Fly’s” way of greatness, not even Mother Market.

UPDATE: [[CSCO]] is fucking doomed.

Flashback UPDATE: “The Fly” predicted CSCO’s fuckedness, when coked out bald guys said to “buy, buy, buy.”

    Juice, you’ve been spot on in the past.

    Are you losing your mojo? Why not just set reasonable position sizes with your shorts, set stops above for any kind of shenanigans, and then take a week or two off?

    Fly ? if you buy out the houses on your block and bulldoze them, you will not have any neighbors, so you will not see them chagrining. Anyways, nice call on DECK, everybody gets lucky sometimes, shit, you can throw a dart at the WSJ and find stocks to short and make money in this market.

    I’m always right.

    Booking big dicked gains, since 1994.

    What have you been doing since then?

    Shooting heroin, while polishing your crack pipe?

    Do not reply. You are not good enough to talk to Fly.

    I thought today would be an inside day up to 1/3 of yesterdays loss. We made it up to there & the bear took over & did his thing.

    Turned out to be a continuation day.

    I still think tomorrow will be an attempted bear shake-out.

    But we see soon enough.

    I was just starting a job on the PE side when I heard the news that ex-MSFT founder Paul Allen had sold his 25% stake in AOL for something like $250 mm.

    I think that stake was worth something north of $15 bn at the top.

    On the subject of banking coin:

    One of my clients who transferred in has owned STJ since 1977….

    Split adjusted price: $0.04

    Bought it for about $10,000…worth just under $2 million today.

    He also owns MDT and ABT since the ’70s.

    Needless to say, he will not sell any of them.

    Sort of makes the case for buy and hold on certain stocks.

    Survivor bias, alpha.

    But, I’d agree that buy and hold makes more sense for some stocks than others.

    An electric utility is more likely to be around in 30 years (barring death by Enron emulation) than is a tech company or a fashion retail company.

    But I don’t think there is such a thing as a buy-it-and-forget-it stock.

    I counted on FUN to be a buy and hold when I bought it, but management decided they wanted to take on a lot of debt and grow fast. Now they have a lot of debt and low growth. And the idiots just decided that they would increase the quarterly payout even though they are using borrowed money to pay it – just so they could report the 21st consecutive year of rising payouts.

    I bought DNA back in the late ’80’s when it still traded on the Naz under “GENE”. Ended up selling it way too early…the wife wanted to buy stupid things like a new home.

    We could have bought ten homes for what it’s worth now. I’ve left a nice little trust fund on the table by sellng stocks too early—the good names, anyway. We won’t go into my bullshit stock purchases.

    100% cash. I’ve lost my mind in the market, making crazy decisions and taking on too much risk. I’ve been moving huge dollars for minuscule profit.

    I am out for a while, maybe for all of Lent.

    Today is the first day of Lent btw. Timing seems good.

    Down 66k since Jan 1, but off my lows of -200k. Feeling stoopid right now.

    I think there are some healthcare/biotech stocks that are “buy and hold” stocks for the long term…

    Ex:
    GILD…split adjusted price is $0.41 from mid-1993.

    More growth down the road as research and new drugs are developed for new strains of viruses and infectious diseases and cancers.

    About the only way the average “non-trader/active investor” can stand the volatility is to buy it and look at it every three years or so. That’s what my M.D. client did with STJ, MDT and ABT since the 1970’s. He paid less than $35,000 for those stocks and they’re worth over $5.5 mil now.

    GOOG could be one of those buy and hold stocks

    GOOG stock price could increase 7 fold over the next 10 years giving investors an annualized return of roughly 20%.

    GOOG current stock price = $500 approx
    In 2018 GOOG = $3500 ( 7 x 500)
    GOOG market cap – $1 Trillion.

    Lets say GOOG grows annual earnings per share at 30% from here till 2010 , 25% growth from 2010 till 2014 and 20% growth after. By 2018 GOOG could be trading at a forward PE of 22 and be valued at $3500 a share.

    2008 – $20/share
    2009 – $26/share
    2010 – $33/share
    2011 – $42
    2012 – $51
    2013 – $64
    2014 – $79
    2015 – $95
    2016 – $114
    2017 – $136
    2018 – $163

    ( I calculated these numbers in my head so I am slightly off. I have a real calculator brain unlike that Fly character)

    Juice,
    You may not have gotten all the calls right but getting out of that criminal predicament you found yourself in a few years back was masterful. You could never fit your big paws in those little bloody gloves. Kudos to your attorney.

    jeff I don’t know about tomorrow but the carry trade will eventually unwind.

    I think Fly made in excess of 10 folds on AMER.
    My first stock was a warrant

    Speaking of Google, remember folks, someday Google is going to cross reference every post, email, text msg, phone conversation, survey, purchase, video and thought you ever had and sell it to the highest bidder without your knowledge or permission and make a boatload doing it. You heard it here 1st or maybe not.

    Speaking of buy and hold; my parent’s pretty much live on forgotten employee stock options in SUN and OXY from the 60’s & 70’s.

    My sister “retired” before her 40th b-day from founding shares and vested options in some long imploded dot-coms that panned out. Paid .70 and sold for like $25 in under two years and shit like that.
