Pop Dividends from Pepsi

Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

After seeing this in my in-box from one of my news searches:

PepsiCo Boosts Annual Dividend by 7%, Authorizes Stock Buyback

I set a limit buy for Pepsico, Inc. (PEP) at $61, while askStockGuru had them today at 62.3 for the conservative buy.

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail says “buy $54 or less”. today says:

Retracement Trade: Consider buy when the price retraces around 48.98 if you are aggressive. Alternatively, a conservative buy would be around 47.57.

I like to split the difference and set a limit at 48.28 and an alert at 46.

Adding EMC to Watch List

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

At $15 as I write this, askStockGuru shows it in Bullish Phase with a conservative buy at 13.02.

Ticker AOB is down today following the release of a fee-required report. Unless it is devastating, they should rebound. I actually took a little longer on my research on this and may have missed my entry point at 5.08. Will see.  The Fool CAPs like it. I may have  jumped too early, though, if askStockGuru is right.

PCP Oldy But Goldy Back on the Watch List

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009

I love the content at the Motley Fool, and if I ever get rich I will subscribe to their newsletters (the newsletter is definitely lazy, and cheap is always relative). Meanwhile, I get their teaser ads and the ones that actually tease me I go look up on the Gumshoe site.

This particular tease really caught my eye, and the Gumshoe’s thinkolator came up with a stock I looked at a long time ago (Precision Castparts Corp. (PCP)) and should have bought then. Now, I will hold off for the drop that askStockGuru is looking for today, i.e., around $74.

Hesitation Cuts on SATC

Thursday, June 11th, 2009

Saw SATC in my bargain bin yesterday at 1.56. By the time I decided to do anything about i, it was up to 1.59. I put in a limit at 1.57, and it went up to 1.64 instead. So I put in a limit at 1.64 after closing. It opened at 1.69, but then dipped down momentarily, long enough for my limit buy to go through. It is hard to balance between instincts and caution. We will see where this goes now.

Today’s askStockGuru advice is:

Breakout Trade: We would look for this stock to either close above 2.08 to go long or close below 1.63 to go short.
Retracement Trade: Consider buying when the price retraces around 1.63. Consider selling/shorting when the price approaches 2.08.

I’m going to go with selling most of it at 2.07 and keeping the rest to track. But I will have an alert set for 2.02 to re-evalutate when it gets close.
