Hi Mike! Hi Tye!

Hi Sarah. If your heart is telling you to bail, we don't need no stinkin' T/A. Put a once cent trailing stop on it and go to the movies.
Miss your dailies,
MikeBawl.


Not allowed to use trailing stops - not when I'm posting about it anyway. If I just stayed silent (for 10 days) I could sell via a trailing stop just like I can outright sell.

As to my heart? Ack! That's what got me into this mess!

I'm probably going to wait through earnings. I didn't buy at the top, but man alive it's been quite the seller.

There are hints of how this selling is happening that reminds me a little of AKAM a year ago. Strong story, earnings, etc., but the market sold it anyway. Difference was, a year ago I just kept staring at those AKAM holders wondering why they kept buying an obviously falling knife.

Difference with SIGM though is they've got a much lower p/e. And high growth. We'll see.

I asked now, cause I have no intention of selling until at least after earnings. So good to get a reading now. I'll decide later. Currently the fundies look amazing.

From Tye:

Look on the bright side. If the fundies are good and the performance (revenue growth) is happening, then you may be getting into bargain territory.


Yeah, I know! That's what everyone keeps saying!

Of course, this assumes you do not have somewhere faster and easier to return a nice profit.

Nothing's easy in this market right now. Not shorting, not going long. At least imo.

I'm learning a lot about that patience you mentioned. lol

My hottest stock - I'm just waiting for breaking news, don't know what day it will come. :) I may have to wait all the way til next earnings (3months). But I will, the upside is amazing.

Sarah
