    $XLB - the materials ETF had a large run up on heavy volume, but it is now seeing some sellers step in on the retest of the $58 level. Linde PLC, $DD, $ECL, $APD, and $DOW are more than half of the weighting in the ETF.

  • 1winkie: Technical action by S&P 500 stocks to 10:00: Bullish. Intermediate breakouts: $TGT $MDT $APD $COO.
  • bsafriet: $APD #dumpster-dive At support. This is a channeling stock with a nominal range of 155 - 170 and a 1 month period. Long the Aug’18 155/165 bull call spread with a $4.17 entry made Jun 27 which turned out to be a fake-out. So I’m in a little early. The position is trading at $3.75/$4.30 today. Best wishes.

  • olveoyl: $APD is trying....$ITW nice move today
  • issues: Cramer featured a spin off $VSM from Airproducts ($APD - bouncing off 20 day) last Fri. He made a compelling case for it as a LTH. Also many in the Forum have mentioned $MZOR (coming down to the 20 day at $38.79 - which would be a good buy point). He also commented on that big move of MZOR. There is this new refrigerator that has no moving parts. It's an amazing new invention. The company is Photonics that is in partnership with $TMO. Bitcoin symbol is $GBTC. NP

  • SusanW: $APD My broker wants to buy this stock. To me it is at the top of the range and I should wait. Am I wrong?
  • Chops: @SusanW $APD I had a broker call me once, long ago, and wanted the same thing. I didn't sell and was glad I didn't. The stock went up dramatically. Just my experience.
  • infocus: @SusanW $APD Looks to me like it could be resting after a long consolidation. Possibly approaching a breakout. Just my opinion, but I'd be more inclined to put a stop below the previous day's low around 145.25 and sit tight.

The Saudis could say something and drop the market....and that would be new news. I'm a trader who trades on news but always with an eye on chart levels for risk management. LOL

  • moneyHoHo: $APD - You have price, the 50day, and the ascending support line all intersecting right now. Bollingers are narrowing with the price action. Kind of looking like a bearish wedge. If it goes back up to the upper trendline and is denied for a forth time, it could fall a bit. Comments?
  • Forexpro: Re: $APD, @MoneyHoHO

    Hey, @MoneyHoHo,

    Hope you're doing well. My chart setup differs a bit from @Dan's, but this looks buyable to me. Alternatively, you can wait to see if it takes out the 112 level before getting long. The recent low was 106.4 ...
  • moneyHoHo: $APD - Thanks for the perspective @Forexpro. I've gone back and forth on this one. Had a starter and then took it off. Can't help but think it should be bouncing here, but it's not. Will continue to watch. They are scheduled to speak at the 2013 Citi Basic Materials Conference DEC 3, so might be interesting to follow up. I also know that Bill Ackman was buying shares earlier over the summer and is pushing for a management shakeup.
  • Forexpro: Re: $APD, @MoneyHoHo You're Always Welcome, @MoneyHoHo, It's up roughly 27% year to date, so it hasn't been a laggard, exactly, it's just looking a bit sluggish now. It pays a 2.6% #dividend, I see, with an ex-date coming up at the end of the year. Perhaps the thing to do is to wait to see if it can gain enough momentum to break the recent range - to the upside, that is - and see how it trades from there. As you indicate, here doesn't seem to be any compelling reason to go all-in at the moment. Have a great Thanksgiving!
  • moneyHoHo: $APD - Bought this a couple days ago. It's in a pretty tight triangle. Another $.50 and it could get some wheels.

  • jdaniels: $APD - Been consolidating for the past 3 weeks and has shown considerable strength overall during the market pullback. BB are tightening and stock remains very close to its 52wk high. Sold out just prior to the last run on May 17 @93.22
  • jdaniels: $APD - Thinking it is time to sell. Any opinions?????? Put in a trailing stop loss order @.22
  • jdaniels: $APD @nb8702 - Thanks for the feed back. My trailing stop mentioned above has already been hit. Sold full position at 90.97. Will look to re-enter
  • jdaniels: $APD - Anyone know why the big pop today? Would have loved to trim position a little but I missed it.
  • jdaniels: $APD - Reported earnings on 4-23 and the street sold it, now trading above that range after rebounding yesterday on high volume. Good buying opportunity. Long common

  • jdaniels: $APD - Re-opened a small position today @ 85.31. Still trading blind as my computer problems continue. Sold out of my long term position last month and this looks like a decent re-entry
  • jdaniels: $APD - Stopped out 86.94. Reasonable profit 10.66%. Will look to rotate into housing stocks
  • jdaniels: $APD - Need help from a technician. Does this stock look ready to roll over, is it just tired. Its had a good run. Currently long
  • jdaniels: $APD @rah - I believe it hits a new 52 week high in the first half of the year, so I am in the low to mid 90's. However I need some cash. This one looks like the best possible candidate yet it is close to where I would want to add. I trimmed this position on 1-22 and it was just pure luck that it was the top. Like the company, like the CEO
  • rah: $APD @ jdaniels - trust your eyes, I do, you have good instincts. If the stock, from the time of purchase till now, is under performing, changed or you just prefer to do something potentially better, go for it. That loss should be made up with the better deal. I support the concept of this action. Good luck on the choice. rah
  • jdaniels: $APD @rah - Thanks for the response. If I sell it it is not a matter of a loss. Currently up over 11% after the past several down days. I did not sell it primarily because I keep a rather wide selection of holdings and stay very diversified. My instinct are not always correct and I hold some positions where it shows.
  • jdaniels: $APD - Trimming prior to earnings in the morning. Nice move over the past several weeks and a nice gain for my portfolio
  • jdaniels: $APD - Still holding the trend after a $PB yesterday. Long equity. Earnings out on 1-23 BTB. I may trim a little prior to the announcement.
  • jdaniels: $APD - A company I have mentioned prior but if you are not watching it for an entry I believe your missing out. Been in an uptrend beginning in Oct. It has not been at these levels since May. Heading back to its 52wk high IMO
  • jdaniels: $APD - Question, technically it is trading outside the upper BB for the second day, should this be my indication to sell. I like the company and the sector and has been a good steady company for me. Up again nicely today with ex-date on 12-28.

  • debeers: ARG-with the bid underneat set by $APD, makes you wonder if they are finally going to come upwith the $$ to get the deal done or if there's a new player.HUN seems ripe to me also and Najerian just confirmed upside call volume. Thoughts?
  • dr.orangejuicer: $ARG - I went long today. I'm itching to pile in because this has such a great technical setup artificially produced by the $APD situation, earnings are out of the way, and the fundamentals are very positive.
  • jojo1480: ARG-jemcbrid, thanks for bringing up with those upgrades, beginning to really like this holding. I might even send the $ARG and $APD a thank you note.
  • jojo1480: ARG- @dkoran, the tender offer is subjected to $APD whims. If you tender your stocks today @64, on Feb15, $APD could return those share @64 back to you if they decide to not go through with the deal. The catalyst that everyone is waiting is the judicial opinion inre to poison pill provision. If this provision is repealed, look out $MA will be more rampant. Long ARG.
  • jojo1480: ARG- if your holding this, the tender offer expires tomorrow Feb04. If $APD walks away, you get your shares back at whatever price $ARG was trading when it was tendered. That is the last word i have regarding this takeover.
  • Marty: $IPI - Intrepid Potash Inc - Competitors $FMC, $DD, $MOS and $APD all doing well today. Short interest is @ 15 1/2 % and one of highest amongst its peers. Am I understanding this correctly as it is clearly bouncing off of the 20 DMA. Is that one of the formulas for watching a buy point. Yes? No? Agriculture - Fertilizer - may be a growth arena (?) Earnings coming towards end of this month (Feb 23rd).
  • jojo1480: ARG- jmcgee66, i keep getting letters from Fidelity as a reminder, i don' t know what would happened if $APD walks away. I need to have a conversation with them, soon.
  • jojo1480: ARG- jkricha, underlying bid of $70 expiring feb04 from $APD, you have until then to tender your shares over (call broker). The question is that "final" offers are not binding in the US. What would happen if the shares are tendered and $APD walks away?
  • MoSo: $AMZN APD $JCI - look like they might be establishing support, $AMZN (reports 1/27) at just under 175, $APD (earnings were on 1/21) at around 86.20 and $JCI (reported 1/20) at about 38.20. Of course, the question is - establishing support before they go higher again or establishing a base for consolidation and then they go up or down. They're all on my watch list, anyway, with partial positions in all 3 (pared my positions down a couple of weeks ago so that I don't have a full position in anything right now).
  • jojo1480: ARG- just a reminder the tender offer is extended till Feb04. I own a few Jan62.50call (even on the trade), the Jan65calls (traded them on the pop and bought back) are underwater. These option expire this coming Fri. I am considering if $ARG ends ~63-64/share, I am going to exercise the Jan65calls and tender them. The only thing I am not sure is if $APD walks away after the tender offer period, what happens to the value of those shares that were tendered at $70/share. First time this has happened to me in all the years of trading. I know that "final" offers in the US are not binding (Europe they are binding). I am just doing this to turn a small loss into a small gain. Any thoughts?
  • jojo1480: ARG- $APD extended offer until Feb04 @70/share. I posted this on OMM, if your holding Jan65call, depending what you pd. that option is underwater. To salvage break even or make a few bucks. Call your broker, exercise the option and tender offer those shares. The drawback is that final offers are not binding in the US, tie up quite a bit of cash and payment is usually after the Feb04 deadline. I hold a few contracts of the Jan65, and I will exercise them a couple days before expire. Do a little math and see how it applies to your situation.
  • jojo1480: ARG-jmcgee66, Jan 14 is the take it or leave it date that was the ultimatum give by APD. Noticed how $POT behaved after $BHP went away (took a while), not saying this is going to happen to $ARG, only a few ag cos, a gazillion chem companies, so the analogy might not be fair. Long ARG. Jan62.50/65calls. The only way the 65calls are salvage-able is if $ARG and $APD can come to an agreement before expiry.
  • jojo1480: ARG- pu jan62.50calls, looking for quick pop, still long the common. Might sell the common need the tax loss to off set cap gains. What irritates me is the board is playing poker, and many large holders of this stock are po, this stock has never come close to sniffing 65 let alone 70/share. In the US final offers in a take over is not binding, $APD can up the ante, i am typing this with fingers crossed.
  • jojo1480: ARG- Eton Park a hedge fund (owns ~7%), in a 13D amended filing, urged ARGs board to consider the 70/share filing to be fair. This makes it the 2nd Hedge fund to publicly support $APD takeover. Penmark the 2nd largest owner of $ARG did so in an open letter to the Board. Now we have three $ARG board members (placed by $APD and other large owners of ARG) in dissent, how would the Judge rule in regards to $ARG poison pill provision. Consider that in the history of $ARG, the stock price never came close to the whiff of a 70 pt. Final offers in the $USA are not binding, $APD can offer higher than the 70/sh offer. Positon long common and Jan60calls.
  • polarbear: $ARG / $APD Buyout - anyone following this? What are the sentiments on this going through? Long 1 position.
  • jojo1480: ...
    NEW YORK, Dec 12 (Reuters) - Three Airgas Inc board members disagreed with the board that the company was worth a minimum of $78 a share, a court filing shows, adding a new twist to the industrial gas company's takeover battle with rival Air Product ...
  • jojo1480: ARG- the latest news from $ARG board is that they might consider a bid of 78. I am sure that is just a feeler, and I realize that $APD final take it or leave it offer is 70. Either $ARG is putting itself out there for other chem cos. to consider this proposal, or $ARG gets bought at midpoint 74, or nothing happens come 14jan2011.
  • jojo1480: ARG- halted pending news, holding overweight position, perhaps new offer from $APD, keeping fingers crossed.
  • jojo1480: ARG- $APD offered 70/share
  • OPTIONSWEALTH: $ARG - On a long ago segment of Mad Money, #Cramer was saying the $ARG is a much better run company than $APD and it really wasn't in ARG's best interest to be swallowed up by APD.
