@ Roach. Regarding Kandi, where would you price target be? It's already risen by over 66% in the last month. Definitely an interesting buy.

Anyway, sold my position for IMG today @ $4.30, bought at $3.72 last Thursday.

Tesla has so much momentum today. Think it'll hit $170 tomorrow?

Looks like the drug isn't FDA approved yet, would you short it back to $40?
Lol, you would have made a killing if you shorted it. Unless you did?

I'm still kicking around
CCB-V (Graphite)
LXV-V (social media play)

Looking at PYR-V & LOY.V (they have English schools for internationals, and only recently started to acquire rental suites. Looks very promising)

I don't know what side of the fence to stand on with Tesla lately. I bought in back in Dec. 12' at $32 and sold at $170. Had a good ride and made some great profit. Now though I'm just not sure it will make another big run so quickly. Could be a great long play though. Supposed to see a new model this year and there is talks of a F-150 competitor down the line.

A little late to reply to this.

My exit point was $15 as I don't like to hold things too long. Although it hit that point late in the day today I am holding on for a bit of continuation tomorrow morning.

Assuming I cash out tomorrow I will try to re-enter on a dip and play for a run-up to earnings.

That's both disappointing and encouraging at the same time. Would have been nice to have had a definitive answer at this point, however, the continued delay makes me think that it's not going to be a definitive no when a decision is reached.

I wonder whether this issue was at all political and whether the prior CEO's resignation was necessary for the FDA to move forward.

With that being said, you're not far off your average now. One decent piece of news and you could stand to be back in the black.

Quick question for you guys:

Is there such thing as a USD TFSA direct trading account? (specifically with TD waterhouse)

backstory:

My understanding is that in order to trade a ticker under a US exchange, say GOOG, I would buy the shares with my current TFSA trading account which is in CDN. So i would therefore take an FX hit upon purchase as well as one upon selling.

Tax-Free Saving Account (TFSA)
The Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) is a registered savings account that enables you to earn investment income tax-free, subject to certain condition and limitations. For full details and eligible investments please visit Canada Revenue Agency website (Canada Revenue Agency Web site / Site Web de l'Agence du revenu du Canada). US TFSA is a new type of TFSA that comes with all the tax advantages of a regular TFSA, but is denominated in US currency. This feature allows trading in US denominated instruments without worrying about forced foreign currency conversions (FX Hits) that typically erode trading profits.

Call TD Waterhouse and they can set up this thing for you where every time you sell a stock in USD, rather than converting it back into CAD it will purchase US$ money market funds. When you decide to purchase more US stocks again you can then directly use the US$ money market funds. It's the best way to avoid converting currencies twice and still give you the flexibility.

Don't quote me on this but I believe this process is called "washing your trades"

^ yup, i can vouch for that--it's called currency wash. it's not openly advertised since the bank makes money from the exchange, but call in and they'll be happy to do it for you.

anyway, what are you guys' outlook? market seems very high and quite a lot of stocks are hitting multi-year highs. any one found nice gems?

i am deciding if i should pull the trigger on Ford, their recent drop makes it seem kinda attractive at current prices, comparing their p/e to other automakers like gm or toyota.

also, anyone investing in uranium stocks? im currently in CCJ/CCO, URZ, URE... thoughts?

I own DML and CCO. DML I finally am in the black after averaging down and holding it for god knows how long. CCO I'm up 20%.

I dont know whether to stay or sell some of my holdings. uranium prices are at lows but everyone is expecting uranium prices to go up which has lead to the run up.

I see a lot of up side for DML if uranium prices do go up. I cant see a world without nuclear energy. China has a lot of demand and if Japan starts up again I can only see uranium prices going up. Uranium spot prices are at LOWs, there's only one way it can go and that's up imho.

If you're willing to hold long uranium stocks should be alright, CCO would be the obvious choice IMO.

A little sketchy IMO to start long positions now though, even if Uranium starts to pop in say 1-2 years, the greater markets could be correcting by then (I say correcting because it's pretty clear the NA economy is still #&$@ed.. and it's been 5+ years since things last came apart at the seams, so the next part of the cycle could start soon).

I'm thinking that the spring sell off this year will be significant, if equities are down in spring, and precious metals etc. are up I will be thinking it's time to get the F out of markets for a while... meh, it's a matter of opinion I suppose.

GL to all!

If you think the markets will correct then you're selling amrn?

But I do agree with you, the saying, "sell in may, go away" is a self fulfilling quote from TIME to TIME.

And I agree, markets are heated. Then again...sometimes..being long is how you make money. Not too long..but long.

awesome. calling in today to set that up but the low dollar is causing my inner cheap-o to not buy USD until it ticks back up a bit...which probably won't be a while. saw on the news that economists are expecting it to drop to 83-83 wtf!

Insane, anyone catch the min.v play? Incredibly good PFS released, stock goes from .10 cents to .55close, 355% in a day. And likely a gap up on Monday.

I flipped for a couple of pizzas, but regret not holding over the weekend now. The heavy buying until EOD makes me think it's going to gap up on Monday.
