Decided to sell some none core positions today - 1/2 ALA, MFC.

Buying - 1/2 NWH.UN, and will soon start a new position in an ex NA Div ETF (I.e ZDI or RID)
Why sell ALA today? NWH.UN is at 52 weeks high, why buy it today? Any fundamental changed?

I think I was overconfident with ALA and it was too big of a position, so I am reducing it. I'm looking for a bit of international diversification, hence thinking about NWH.UN. The secular tailwind doesn't hurt either. I know it's a bit expensive, hence I won't buy a full position.

Wait for it to drop more. Lots of good assets, but lots of pain to be shed.

They went through this in 2008-2009.
Are you sure you wish to carry out this operation? You betcha.

so AMZN is not going to sell drugs online after all. They want to enter medical devices market - and McKessons are not impressed.
Buy CVS?
After spending many years in Wall Street and after making and losing millions of dollars I want to tell you this: it never was my thinking that made the big money for me. It was always my sitting. Got that? My sitting tight!

Started a position in EXE @ 8.96. Demographic play and a nice monthly divy.

Anyone got any insight into GE? As a long term thing?
Falling knife right now but basically the majority of the people holding this as a dividend stock are going to be liquidating. Could be much more room to fall.

we don't know where the floor is. I am buying in small chunks, luckily IB has 1c commission on stocks
GE looks ugly, but the long term channel support is right here, 18 bucks. The bottom will be when the stock reverses intraday on big volume... not there yet.
I am getting overweight GE (around 8% now). Buying low brings my cost basis closer to market price, so when the stock jumps to 22-24, I will trim position to 5%

hedge fund managers found to be very optimistic and bullish, carry lowest level of cash - as found by BofA survey
I think they mentioned levels not seen since 1999-2000 and 2007-2008

this time it's different

p.s. btw, stocks making new lows exceed those making new highs. Something that hasn't happened in awhile too.

I guess that's 1 stock on new high... AMZN, and pushing about 50 stocks to new lows due to fear of AMZN.

"Buy on rumours, sell on news" (c)
AMZN will sell drugs online -> AMZN up, CVS down

AMZN will NOT sell drugs online -> AMZN up, CVS down lol

maybe that why I'm not a trader - too illogical for me Face With Tears Of Joy
