Last day to hit numbers, last day to effect your income, this is it.
And with the month of JULY being a NEW HIGHS and the BIGGEST DIP month since FEBRUARY (look what happened back then)...record volume trading and selling galore last week...this will be a day of discovery and one to remember.
.....the "market makers" want to end the month GREEN!
was this DIP the real RED, ...or just another SCARLETT?
DIPfolio "current" favorites:
(*reports earnings in the AM)
watching NMX* earnings tomorrow too, we've traded successfully and own some leftovers now...go exchanges!
BOTD loves HK!
14.90 +0.81 (5.75%) Jul 30, 9:53AM ET

.....if/when HK goes under $14/share we will buy more today.
.....when you can't take the pain anymore, and all is lost, and the world is over....BUY!
BOTD "pick of the year" will continue to be bought every 5% dip until we run out of money.
THE DEMAND FOR OIL hasn't changed .... the HK story hasn't changed.
...the market has, but if we aren't saying BUY ON THE DIP , who will? ...BOTD!
19.73 +1.63 (+9.01%)
are you scared?

VLCM ....hhhmmmmmm.....just a rumor or opportunity knocking?
After Hours: 46.13 -0.27 (-0.59%)
Down 10% from its peak (get it "peak"...hehe, subtle surfing reference).... Buy On The Dip ...... VLCM ... ride the wave!
SELL for now....we still like, but we are holding CAT, we don't need both right now....we did like the MARINE side of MANITOWOC, but ohh well, hit the sell.

We all want the sexy stocks that go higher and higher, bring paradise, and make us RICH! ... what if there were no dips? .... soon we'd say, "ohhh its had its run" or "too high to get in now" ... THE MARKET WANTS YOUR MONEY and will let you back in!
In 2007 the "good stocks" were up 25%+ and the "great stocks" 50%+ YTD, .....for the "big money folks" that's too much! How can average joe investor make 50% returns in half a year just holding a few good names?...then the sky starts to fall and the world is over ... THIS MARKET WANTS YOUR MONEY!
you know what we say: BUY ON THE DIP
Pick up some more of the stock "you" love, ...or buy "the one that got away", .... start checking off your shopping list ... your money belongs in this BEAUTIFUL market and in your favorite stocks... BOTD!

MACY's (M: NYSE)
...check out the 3 month chart... BOTD buy RECO was MAY 16th, when it was a confusing Federated (FD) ...back then, with the switch to "just M" we couldn't resist the sexy dip... and heck, we shop at good ole M... if ya bought, held on or even traded this retail rollercoaster since our reco, today was your day... hands up ! weeee! take more profits! M trade above 45+ at the open, and ended just above $43....a reminder to take some profits and "sell the news" ....and go with the DIP LOGIC of 5% & 10% profit taking in the short term, and LONG the long term...go bulls! GO TEAM!
p.s. check out all the 5%+ bounces, wish we had bought every dip.
p.p.s. BUY something on todays DIP....look at the chart for a "good stock"... pick one, pick any... and think...hmmm...."what if I had bought every dip?"
taking the $80 to $100 cramer logic....Global Growth, ....Builders need CRANES!!
lets get those 5% and 10% gains on this one!

We even went to the extreme of posting brazilian boobs at a soccer game to get attention! ....did you listen? did you buy? do you own BRAZIL?
.....and our lil' kitty...purr
83.49 (+1.58) .....not exactly BRAZIL, but CAT is our global machinery play!

...not the movie with Danny DeVito...we're talking OPTIONS!
OPTION LEVERAGE turns small moves in the common stock into BIG PROFITS for the DIPfolio.
NYX option call > common stock up 10%
> BOTD option call up 50%
added to the DIPfolio at $8.90 ... that chart is just too sexy!!!
CLX option call > common stock up 2%
> BOTD option call up 15%+ *profits taken*
ACM option call > common stock up 15%
> BOTD option call up 290%+ *profits taken*
Our strategy is simple ... pick a stock you like, buy the option instead.
We look for options that are at-or-near-the-money, sometimes slightly in-the-money....for us it makes the math easier. Pick a stock you want on the DIP, check the options, look for one that has moved less (relative to the stock movement)...then BUY "the option" ON THE DIP!
BOTD also likes option "calls" where the current stock price is at, near, or close to the strike price....again keep the math simple...and keep the logic simple.
