I often buy and hold the next 2 years tent-poles.

Posted by: Scorpion on Jul 06, 07:36 in response to elchan's post Please explain the strategy behind why someone would buy...

I have plenty of cash to do so & play any opener I want. They also tend to be underpriced, sometimes significantly

And, I don't always have time to play, so it's a good long term income investment so I have a consistant income stream.

Please explain the strategy behind why someone would buy and hold SPID5 for over a year?   elchan on Jul 06, 07:21

there are way more part time players than there are regulars. buy and hold is an easy strategy for someone who either doesnt know better or    islander on Jul 06, 07:24

When your port is huge, and you have cash laying around, why not buy as many stocks (short OR long) as you can..put the $ to work! {nm}   Flash on Jul 06, 07:39

But the dROI is so small to hold it for another year. Any actively managed fund would get at least 1% dROI.   elchan on Jul 06, 07:50

while 1% sure is desirable, you face a different problem when port grows too big.   Oleg Max on Jul 06, 07:56

I need to keep that in mind when I become a billionaire. ;-0 {nm}   elchan on Jul 06, 08:00

You don't need to be a billionaire. @ about half a billion you start running out of stuff to do with your excess cash.   Scorpion on Jul 06, 10:54

Yeah, I've made a billion so far this year. My average daily change is 0.06% {nm}   RogerMore on Jul 06, 08:27

my take:   Oleg Max on Jul 06, 07:40

But, mid 300s seems impossible at current pace, to me. I guess people are still holding on, until they see where SPID4 will actually land.   elchan on Jul 06, 07:45

it's a unique situation w/ SPID4, given that 3 days won't get a multiplier. SPID3 did 151mill that wknd in 2007....   Oleg Max on Jul 06, 07:48

Still even if SPID5 might go up to 350, we're still talking about a dROI about 0.2%! {nm}   elchan on Jul 06, 07:55

true, better than next to nothing in cash... {nm}   Oleg Max on Jul 06, 07:57

Sure I can see how it would be good to hold tent pole from IPO, but I'm saying for SPID5, now that we have an idea   elchan on Jul 06, 07:41

I guess my question should have been, "If I owned SPID5 now, would I hold it for another year?" ;-)   elchan on Jul 06, 07:59

One I'd like to add - playing the players is also a factor.   RogerMore on Jul 06, 08:40

I've never really understood the September crash, but let me try to reason it out and you can tell me whether I'm full of ****   stevie1der328 on Jul 06, 08:49

I think the lower opening weekends in September are a bigger factor in the crash.   RogerMore on Jul 06, 09:31

That's why I love HSXMetrics site. Great for spotting trends. Do a lot of people move their investments into TV, in the fall?   elchan on Jul 06, 09:38

The TV market isn't large enough to have a noticeable effect on the movie market, particularly with the 20,000 share limit. {nm}   stevie1der328 on Jul 06, 10:17

I'm with OlegMax and RogerMore, but time is a factor as well   JohnTEQP on Jul 08, 21:04

I'm a casual player...if I'm making at least a million a day and this game doesn't feel like a chore,then I'm happy :) {nm}   tealfan on Jul 06, 08:48

I'll say why I hold some things for a long time...   LanceStorm22 on Jul 08, 22:24
