  • champ: @Wolf $CTL $LVLT - On $CTL @ $24.50.....did you see where they had 2 new buys by insiders in the last few day #1 was a director that bought 51k @ $23.40 6 days ago and #2 the chief Tech officer bought 14,800 @ $24....on that news that the chief made ...
  • Wolf: @champ $CTL $LVLT #1 #2 Good news. I did my once a year and sold at the top. I bought back 1/2 @24.89 and sold equal 11/18 25 calls and 12/16 25 puts. Looks like I may make a profit on both. Just added and closed my covered for 77% profit. Thanks for the head up.

I have not check these out...NP on either but watching.....for new entry on $CTL.
  • Forexpro: @champ $CTL $LVLT Hi, Champ, This is all that I've seen this morning: 10:53 ET - CenturyLink's (CTL) roughly $25B cash-and-stock purchase of rival Level 3 (LVLT) promises to cut expenses in the short term, but bears still doubt the telephone carrier's long-term future. Jefferies says "the deal represents a near-term solution to avoiding a dividend cut, but fails to address longer-term structural issues" dogging CTL, which include stiff competition and a very price-sensitive customer base. LVLT's past losses might ease the combined company's tax burden, yet the bank still calculates a dividend payout near 80%, a level it considers "unsustainable" in the long run. Jefferies keeps a sell rating on CTL and drops its price target to $20 from $24. CTL slips 4.8% at $25.32, adding to Monday's 13% drop. (WSJ) All the best!
  • puttz: @Forexpro $CTL $LVLT Thank you for the response. Luckily it's not a huge position but still stings a little.
  • champ: @Forexpro $CTL $LVLT - Thanks, good to know. I didn't see that news about a price target of $20....Take Care!
  • Wolf: @champ $CTL $LVLT Restarted my position @24.30. Tight stop @ 23.88. Looking for a bounce.
  • Wolf: @champ $CTL $LVLT Thinking about restarting my position, but I keep remembering the falling knife warning.
  • champ: @Wolf $CTL $LVLT - Hard to say....before earnings....I have NP at this point.....I'm just going to watch for now.
  • Chucky: @DAN $GE $BHI $LLL $CTL Hi Dan, Just to correct just in case SMM members might want to become arbitragers. symbol. $CTL is buying $LVLT for 26.5 cash and 1.4286 stock. Side note; You mention cash is a position over the weekend.. Better to be luck than smart sometimes. With this buyout( which I just sold my $LVLT shares taking my profit and moving on) my portfolio is at its 30 year high (60%) cash as I haven't replaced them with stock yet. Been on a nice long respite from market activity researching and learning. Thanks for keeping us out of trouble.
  • ROSEY: @Dan, @Chucky $GE $BHI $LLL $CTL $LVLT I second that comment "Thanks for keeping us out of trouble @Dan".
  • DAN: @Chucky $GE $BHI $LLL $CTL $LVLT Really nice to hear that, Chucky. Great job! Being largely in cash is a good position to be in.

  • champ: @Wolf $CTL - I'm still holding 1/2 ....$LVLT is moving again today...this is the one that they will be merging with (M&A) ...if it happens....$CTL has a larger $$ market Cap but it is lagging.
  • champ: $CTL @ $30.73 up 8.7% - Bouncing on M&A news with $LVLT @$50.60 up 7.8% ....I'm swing long in $CTL and it should climb even more. X-Date is on 11/20 but unconfirmed and they pay $0.54 7.65%....Earnings is on 11/2/AH
  • champ: @TunaHelper $CTL - This was report by the WSJ .....also on Schwab and they said that they are in Advanced merger talks....so I don't think that this is a Rumor ...this is the real deal.....but as always the talks could fall thru. Lately all these talks about M&A have been going thru ...with the deal...we will have to wait and see how it plays out. Volume with $CTL is already 7 x avg and on $LVLT it's about 8 x's avg.....this is Institutional volume.

  • Bridget: $LVLT doing what I expected it to do today
  • Bridget: $LVLT is looking to be entering phase 3 of its breakout.
  • issues: @Bridget $LVLT Thanks but the chart sure doesn't look like a textbook phase 3 but if you have a good imagination, well ok then!~
  • Bridget: @issues $LVLT The break out was on 12/1, then it pulled back the center of the bollinger bands and is now back above the upper bollinger band. I'm not sure when else you want to see.
  • Bridget: $LVLT volatility squeeze breakout, same with $TXN
  • msb: $LVLT - another short idea. This time I attached the weekly chart. Potentially it is at the top of a right shoulder for a head and shoulders top. Notice the deterioration of the MACD over the last year. Currently short.
  • Chucky: $LVLT nice 8% move today on earnings. First Target 55-57.
  • issues: @Chucky $LVLT Sure looks like a top. This one I would put in a stop at, say $48.88
  • Chucky: @issues $LVLT Hi Issues. Thanks fro your thoughts. Short term, just broke above 200EMA at 48.83, as long as it holds the 8SMA at 48.51 on daily on pullback it still looks good. I have a long term position from way back. I held through downdraft and will keep in portfolio as I believe in their business.
  • Chucky: $LVLT -Continues to be Long term holding. Looks like 47 was capitulation low yesterday. On weekly chart it recaptured 50SMA.
  • Drsatx: @Aragorn $LVLT Not sure how this would fit your trading model (which I intend to study). In a fairly steady uptrend for the last couple of years (weekly chart). Thanks for all your contributions; I'm usually not around during the trading day.
  • SierraJW: @Drsatx $LVLT - Good Trading range and consolidation. During May, if you bought at 55.30 and sold at 56.40, on limit trades, in an IRA, you would have had a 4.8% gain month to date- Note, IRA trading has some limitations, but there are no tax consequences, so the only expense is the cost of the trade (If it works, of course :-D)... I may try that, as I have a smart phone, and can get schwab alerts on it as well as trade executions in real time, from their mobile app, or my IRA account, not sure which, or I can set up programed limit order trades... Just an idea to pursue...FWIW Jim
  • Chucky: $LVLT nice pop on Barron's article. Revenues and Earnings are rising. Above 57 then it could get to 61.

  • Chucky: $LVLT as we are experience rain here in Coronado. time to go thru my portfolio today. This has been a very patient and long term turn around holding from the reverse split days. Yeah, I was exclusively a penalty box guy which is why I joined SMM. SMM is AA therapy for my psyche. Looks like this is consolidating nicely for another pop on daily chart. Might take a stab in my trading account. Waiting for 50 dma to catch up a bit more.

  • captron: $LVLT - A boring stock that is showing some interest today. Starting a position. IBD shows it is being bought by institutions. Earnings are 7/29.
  • moneyHoHo: @captron $LVLT - I was just looking at this earlier today. Long term it could move a lot. I like it.
  • Forexpro: @captron, $LVLT Hi, Captron, Here's hoping that you're doing well. I haven't looked at this before, so far as I can recall, but it doesn't look that boring to me; volume appears to be picking up as it goes higher; Chaikin Money Flow is turning up, and so is implied volatility. This looks like a possible candidate for a short put strategy, for a covered combo, or for a bull put spread: [IMG]http://i1293.photobucket.com/albums/b583/Forexpro1/LVLTDaily160714.png[/IMG] Earnings are before the bell on Jul 29, according to ToS. Short interest has, not surprisingly, diminished; the NASDAQ site reports 7 days to cover as of Jun 13, 3.5 days to cover as of Jun 30. I'm guessing that it has continued to go lower. :) Thanks for the heads-up, and best of luck with it.

  • Chucky: $LVLT - Breakout today on heavier than avg. volume. It looks like 31.15 will now become support. Looking for some more follow through even if it's a little above the 50DMA then I would like. Currently own a 50% position and would look to buy a @Dan phase 2 pullback retest.

  • SeaKingA: $LVLT - 59 minute? Plummeting on earnings. EDIT: Bounced off Fib 50% line. No position.
  • hooked1: $LVLT - Happy New Year everyone! Anyone else enjoying the ride in LVLT? It broke out of a long term triangle just before the holidays, pulled back a bit on declining vol, and is really following through. I managed to pick it up just after Thanksgiving, and it's turning into a longer term trade than I expected. However, I can't find anything positive about the stock! Apparently, they are saddled with debt and they are presenting at the 2013 Citi Global Internet, Media and Telecommunications Conference in Las Vegas on Tuesday, Jan 8. Anyone else know anything about LVLT?

  • snmtraders: $LVLT - Here's a nice short candidate. Lots of debt, and in the business of selling a commodity. 50dma support turned to resistance in May, and now looks like the 20dma might be the new resistance. The thing preventing me from #shorting is that this would be a big revenge trade for me. I bot back in 2007 on #Cramer's hype, and lost boatloads of money on this before I learned the SMM methods of managing risk. Revenge trading doesn't usually work for me -- too emotionally attached, but just might take a crack on this one with appropriate stop loss buy orders.

  • dr.orangejuicer: $LVLT - Been a choppy ride but this is finally breaking out. Breaking a 6-month downtrend line, crossing the 50-day EMA for the first time since October, and moving out of a volatility #squeeze. Long from lower levels.
  • tmangan60: $LVLT - Looks to be moving to the upside out of a #squeeze. Anyone track this stock?
  • BLR-BlackBird: $LVLT Hello all. My first post to this forum. @Dan has referred to the short ratio in the past and it triggered my thought on LVLT. I'm wondering if anyone would care to comment. From Yahoo Finance, Level 3 Communications (Key Statistics) shows a Short Ratio of 74%. Float is 205M with 169M short. Shorts as a pct of float = 385%. Note that institutions hold 71% and insiders 15% of the stock. $LVLT has been in an uptrend since 2009 (see the weekly chart). It gapped up on open but as of this post has gone slightly negative for the day. Nevertheless, it looks like it may be putting in a bottom within the consolidation range formed since early October. Does it make sense to jump in on the long side anticipating a short #squeeze?
  • lizwaite: $LVLT Hi @Blackbird I have traded $LVLT in the past with your same thought process in my mind. I was also thinking that it could be a takeover target .........sadly, I lost a significant amount of money waiting around for something to happen. It's on my never trade again list along with poor RIMM and FSLR. Just my .02, as always.......... :)Liz

  • snmtraders: $LVLT - I just got stopped out of a very old long position initiated on the #Cramer hype and before I put in stops and let my losers turn into perpetual call #options. Just decided to clean up my portfolio of these perpetual calls by putting in stops and ended up selling $LVLT at 20.96 moments ago. So, it looks like the all clear for you, because I'm not going to touch this one with a ten foot pole. Best of luck to you, BLR-@blackbird.

  • cmac: $LVLT nice bounce off the 50 day today with a nice hammer formation. I was stopped out on Friday, but may re-enter over the next several days.
  • Mortenzen: $PKT - Hi Aiko. Thanks for your reply... I've been eying that one as well as $LVLT for a bit... I think there's money to be made there but missed LVLT's last buy opportunity (was waiting for it to tag some $MA but it popped before that happened.)

  • mingvivien99: LVLT--take a look at $LVLT, better yet look at GLBC, which $LVLT is acquiring for 16x its price. GLBC rose more than $4 in the last 3 days. I am kicking myself trying to low ball the limit price on GLBC option the day before yesterday.
  • ronald73072: LLNW/AKAM - You are correct $AKAM margins were down and guided down, but did beat expectations. The inference is that they are getting more competitive with $LVLT & $LLNW trying to take business they have been losing.
  • cmac: $LVLT watch this break above the channel. More than a flag pattern, guess its a consolidation, but volume strong this morning after earnings. Purely a spec stock at under $2.
  • cmac: $LVLT interesting how strong this stock is today. Very high volume. Careful, as earnings are tomorrow.
