Thinking of adding to my DIS holdings in my portfolio.  Star Wars movies just about to start up again next year...Disney Shanghai opening in 2016...I can't see this thing not finishing over $200 by the end of 2016.

Asian Stocks Drop as Japan Enters Recession; Bonds Rally


Japanese shares tumbled with U.S. index futures and sovereign bonds rallied after the world’s third-largest economy unexpectedly entered recession. Chinese shares fluctuated and the yuan gained as a link between Hong Kong and Shanghai began, while New Zealand’s dollar advanced.

Japan’s Topix index dropped 2.1 percent by 11:31 a.m. in Tokyo as gross domestic product shrank 1.6 percent last quarter from a year before, missing projections for a 2.2 percent gain. Standard & Poor’s 500 Index (SPX) futures slid 0.6 percent and the MSCI Asia Pacific Index lost 0.8 percent. The Hang Seng Index declined 0.8 percent and the yuan strengthened. The yield on 10-year Japanese bonds fell two basis points and Treasuries rose. The so-called kiwi added 0.8 percent.

Japan’s yen briefly fell to the lowest level since 2007 amid speculation the GDP miss will prompt Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s to postpone a planned sales-tax increase. As investors gain mutual access to China’s biggest stock-trading venues for the first time, the country’s banks reported the biggest jump in bad loans last quarter since 2005. Weaker outlooks in the world’s second- and third-largest economies underscore the challenge for Group of 20 leaders who agreed at the weekend to boost member output by a collective $2 trillion by 2018.

“It’s official, Japan is now in recession,” Jesper Koll, the head of Japan equity research in Tokyo at JPMorgan Chase & Co., said in a Bloomberg TV interview. “The prime minister in all likelihood is going to say, look, we’re going to reduce the likelihood of Japan falling into recession again next year by taking away the VAT hike. Vote for me, endorse me, to stick through with this policy.”

I've been thinking the same thing about adding more to it. I'm sure my daughter would appreciate it as well.

I'm just keeping an eye out for Hasbro right now. With the talks between them purchasing DreamWorks all but dead, I expect HAS to climb and be solid. With the partnership between them and Disney, should be a solid quarter for them; that Frozen is a killer for both.

FSLR and SUNE are the two that interest me most for the long term.

Check out these 3 graphs. They intrigued me.

Solar sector has been pretty iffy as of late. Declining 200 SMA on TAN, pretty much undid all of its gains for this year to net 0 YTD. 2013 might have been too good of a year.

Those graphs really were interesting JRS. Gonna look into getting back into FSLR.

I think the merger between the Hong Kong & Shanghai foreign markets contributed to this as well, since foreign investors are pulling out of Japan & heading into China.

GPRO priced it's secondary 10 million shares at $75...always need to be weary of high flying IPOs and secondaries and lockup expirations. This one could have some nice sales heading into the holidays, but who knows. Will continue being volatile.
post #76 of 2550
GPRO is down to $65 after the lockup ends. Gon drop heavy premarket and then rise back to $70 afterwards. This stock been playing with me too much laugh.gif

Guys,

I just left my job and have a Roth 401 I need to rollover to my personal Roth IRA account.

I currently have accounts with Edward Jones because my parents use them, and there is no way in hell I'm giving them any commission on the rollover. Essentially I'll be moving all of my accounts from EJ to a personal platform before the end of the year, as I don't think they are adding any value with their services at this point in my life/risk tolerance.

Is TD Ameritrade my best bet? Looks to be the most reputable site with best reviews/scores etc.

For retirement accounts, Vanguard is top notch. For trading, Vanguard is hot basura.

Not big on penny stocks b.c it's hard to find out the whole story.  So many of them are pump and dumps.

 

I would look at it from the sidelines, even though retail is big right now with Xmas season and all, you dont know who has the majority of the shares and how they would manipulate those shares.

 

For more on penny stocks I would go to Timsykes.com

every penny stock is ********. doesn't mean you can't play them, but you can't trust them. you need to be familiar with level 2 if you're playing penny stocks. and you need liquidity. nothing worse than buying something you can't sell.

Good advice, I'll check it out

I've been funding a brokerage account on Etrade for a while now but haven't really invested in anything yet. So far, I've been watching AKS, AMD and KKD.

Alright guys, I need a favor and would appreciate not getting flamed for it. I'm aware this information may be found with a diligent search but I'm being upfront and honest when I say I don't have the time at the moment.

My brother-in-law is a young businessman/entrepreneur who is just now beginning to dabble in the stock market and is showing a lot of enthusiasm for it. I'm his "secret santa" for the family pool and would like to get him a good book for beginners. I have seen time and again lurking this thread that many of you would attribute your knowledge and principles to certain books. I'd like to get some of your recommendations. I'm aware theres a list on the OP but it is expansive and I'm looking for "the ONE", so to speak. (Although I'm aware it doesn't exist).

I've added the list in the OP for reference:

Brian Shannon's Technical Analysis Using Multiple Timeframes
William O'Neil's How to Make Money in Stocks
Jesse Livermore's How To Trade Stocks
David Linton's Cloud Charts
The Metaphysics of Wall Street by Justin Stone
1. The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham
2. One Up on Wall Street by Peter Lynch
3. The Five Rules for Successful Stock Investing by Pat Dorsey

if you need to pick just one, O'Neill's might be the most balanced. I never read Graham's book but a lot of people speak highly on it. Shannon's book is great for learning technical analysis, but O'Neill's has some fundies insight in there as well.

Did a put fly in GLD 98-101-104 Jan expiration. Only got filled on a 5 lot at .08. Looking to add more tomorrow.

Interesting little read/graphs on profits and taxes for a select few companies

I find this graphic really interesting for GS



silver under 15 bucks an ounce. been adding physical past 2 weeks. 10 oz bars from providentmetals.com gives you your best bang for your buck at the moment. been a little early to the party but i plan on holding this stuff for a long time. totally fine with holding onto it and passing it onto future generations if i ever have kids.

added more to my GLD put fly on wednesday. also did a GLD put spread Feb expiration 105-101. just a 5 lot for .40 per 1 lot. let's see if these metals keep crashing.
