Just bought AAPL today again actually @ $96.34. Gonna sell right after iPhone 6/iWatch announcement though. I expect institutional investors to increase their positions in AAPL again pretty shortly while this stock is still "cheap".

IF on iPhone6/iWatch announcement they introduce or even hint at a iTV or completely new innovation they will soon launch, I will hold until next quarter since I expect analysts to upgrade after these announcements.

BAD got hammered; haven't seen any news so far. Looking into starting a position, depending on what the news (when they are released) will bring.

Edit: ah, found the earnings on SEDAR.

Most of my purchases made lately are not profitable, even though charts setup bullishly and overall market still within few percentage points of its high. What does it mean? No risk takers out there. Luckily, my buys pretty small and few setups that worked are much bigger gainers.
Would I buy now? Definitely no. Don't see anything of value. Of those stocks I consider bullish, MU/SNDK bounced a little, but I expect them to dip below 30/90 by the end of Aug. LULU is a buy (could be takeover target, smart accumulation behind the scenes). GDX still works and ABX/GG setting up very bullishly, as if some sort of black swan expected. FSLR pushing against 70 and I like it. Even TWTR is a better buy that FB/LNKD. TSLA/CMG/NFLX are in the process of blowing their brains out... sold /ES futures today.

We bought 35 shares (in my husband's RRSP account; he called it "scary as hell", but agreed to buy some) back in May for $60. It went up ~15% soon after, then came down. I thought, "Shoot, should've sold at $70 and repurchased now!" Now thinking, "Shoot, should've purchased some more when it was $63-ish!" Oh well, Cramer from Mad Money really likes it and says it'll be a $200 stock in two years, so maybe I'll have a chance to think, "Shoot, should've purchased more at $70!" lol

Well, "non-scary" AT&T went down right after we bought some - and stays down, so I definitely have better luck with "risky stuff" - looking at 3D Printing Companies now... :)

The best advice you can get from Cramer from Mad Money is to do the exact opposite the recommends.

After Q4 earnings from Deere & Companyare released (will most likely report lower profits again due to low commodity prices) I'll initiate a position.

A co-worker (who made some good money in stock market) recommended to listen to Mad Money as "whatever that guy says will go up - always goes up!" :) I'm learning a lot from his newsletter (as I knew next to nothing before lol), here's for example how it described what's gonna happen after First Solar reports 2nd quarter results (and I didn't even know about "squeezing out the shorts" before :) ):

If you're in the bull camp on FSLR, then I would wait until after its report and look for long-biased trades if this stock manages to break out above its 50-day moving average of $65.16 a share to more near-term overhead resistance at $66.68 a share with high volume. Look for volume on that move that registers near or above its three-month average action of 2.83 million shares. If that breakout kicks off post-earnings, then FSLR will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $72.68 to its 52-week high at $74.84 a share. Any high-volume move above those levels will then give FSLR a chance to tag $80 a share.

I would avoid FSLR or look for short-biased trades if after earnings it fails to trigger that breakout, and then drops back below some key near-term support levels at $60.58 to $57.80 a share with high volume. If we get that move, then FSLR will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major support levels at $52.42 to $49.52 a share.

GXE.to had a solid earnings report and rightly jumped 6% early on but gave up the gains throughout the day. Still looks really good.

My target for FSLR is 85, but it all depends on general conditions. If market pull back from 20dma, FSLR will follow, thus 70-72 will not be breached. So far, 67.8 is my stop.

Discussed it with my husband, he said that he can afford to lose 2K, so he'll hold rain or shine (unless the outlook for the company or the whole sector changes :) )

Before gwplant reminds the subject of this thread, we bought some Apple and Boeing recently - and are thinking about Disney :)

Not trying to discourage anyone's investments because that's not the point of this thread, but if the US/Canadian governments had to force an exorbant import/export tax to Chinese solar companies manufacturers just so that US/Canadian solar manufacturers can compete in this market, how sustainable can the solar industry really be?

And I agree with AAPL and DIS right now ;)
