Speaking Personally, I'm Offloading My Stock Now Pre-q4

Recommended Posts

bit of logic that things aren't so good for the economy at all (ie obvious common sense) coupled with the tell-tale excited waffle, bears turning bullish, and the immature witterings in the media of those who support the VIs and the farily immature bouncy VIs themselves who might think it's all in the bag and recovereh here we come ... so am offloading my stock right now while the going's on a bit of an uptick (collectables and used goods mainly) just in case the sunny uplands turn to a mudslide later this year. if they dont and it all holds together a bit longer then i will be a bit peeved but on the other hand it is about risks and forecasting best i can and gotta do what i gotta do, and at the moment gut feeling is it (the recovereh) just doesnt feel right, it's all a bit too happy too soon. and if something seems too good to be true it often is. roads full of 2009 cars, estate agents high as a kite again so very quickly, it all looks like a set up for a nasty one. just my thoughts as an amateur of course,

okay mods, i know this is probably going off topic any moment but its kind of on topic in my book

edit i meant Q4 - i'm goin nutz

English students can't write for toffee. But they can drop philosophers' names like rappers drop brand names. It's historians who know how to write ;-).

I saw the Hang Seng Index is up 84 percent from this year's low in March.

Who is looking for a higher return than that?

I was chatting to some locals in Hong Kong last month who told me about Hang Seng bank's equity mortgage products where they lend up to 90% of the value of an IPO order. It's driven the market crazy. However, it's not as bad as China - I saw a teacher in China who lost $10,000 in one day when the markets fell 8% - her salary was about $500 a month !!

Personally, I'm doing the same as the OP now - volumes are really quite thin now

An interesting thing to watch today was AIG - it rallied by over 30% at one point (to March 2008 levels), and is up an incredible 145xs from it's low !!

I don't have any shares- but IF I did...

SYONARA.

Can you buy shares in Housing associations?

Can you obtain true value "in the pot" by making considerable regular payments into credit unions?

sold my shares monday,

wondering where to stash the cash, but agree i have a nasty feeling that the whole thing is going to go pear shaped soon.

So you are swapping assets trading at 1997 valuations i.e. well away from bubble territory (unlike the credit markets of 07) into cash which the authorities are detemined to dilute to nothing (Ben Bernanke is a determined clever man - you would be a fool to bet against him like Bob Prechter). Presumably, like many others, you think your market timing is good. Hope for your sake you are not gambling with your entire net worth.

i bought them last year at bottom of market, made profit, looking what to do next, perhaps emigrate. I have good contacts in canada but then i would have to sell my (paid for) house

sorry, i think some of you think i meant shares, i meant stock that i sell retail - real goods.

i do have shares but they are not my priority at the moment, although had i bought in march i probably would take profits now probably (or last week), experience taught me to always leave a little for the next man.

they say sell in may and go away, dont come back until whatever day can't remember, but sept often seems a turbulent month anyway. this year...?

but my main message was i am unloading my retail stock pronto for less than usual just in case Q4 brings the storm in and i get left with it for less than i could get now when things seem a little upbeat (for whatever mirage-like reason or not)

My main concern is inflation due to a continuation of the ridiculous QE policy this spendaholic government is addicted to. Selling shares and watching my savings wither away in a bank would make me angry. No idea what the best plan is frankly.

What exactly is this "stock" you speak of? Inquiring minds want to know...

Put my money into shares (global basket of funds) last November, currently showing 20% profit. Planning to keep them there.

Despite recent increases PE ratios are still low (In the case of the FTSE 11 vs an average of 17). I don´t think this is a dead cat bounce, rather a recovery. I think this run still has some way to go.

Besides you get sod all from a bank at present.

used goods that are a tad hard to come by or heavily discounted compared to new, and the odd collectable item - simples
