But I take what the market gives me. I bought at 10.40 4 times and unloaded at 10.70. 12 % for four trades in the last 2 months. Look at the RIM chart. RIM was in a rut from July to mid October ,then the run started. Hedge funds want to make mince meat out of a stock and will suppress for a very long time. They do what Im doing now, trading it in a tight range. if I do this 3 or 4 more times I will be at 20 to 25 % return for a "stagnant " stock. Dont whine about it . This is how the game is played. We know oil has come up ten dollars off the bottom. That will reflect in current earnings. It will also boost the value of reserves. Dont panic, sit back and wait, or trade it if you feel comfy. I never panic. As I posted on the RIM board a stock goes parabolic when you least expect it. Did any one expect APPL to tank 30 % in the last month or to be at a 52 week low when it was riding high in September. Yeah mgmt is terrible but the inventory is worth gold. We know threee outcomes will happen before the summer. Nunns kicked out if stock does not rise, Nunns kicked out before , or take over because at 96 WTI any big American would love to have the dominant light oil player in this country.All take overs and all "runs " come from the bottom. Thats how big players maximize their returns. I am doing same trade with AA . I buy at 8.90 and dump at 9.20. Take the 3 points as many times as the range gives it to u.
