  • champ: @dkoran $WFC #Bounce-Trade-Opportunity --- Also remember, all #Stock trades start-out, as a Day-Trade and all Day-Trades start-out minute by minute and could also turn into a swing trade, short-term, for a day or maybe 2 or even turn into long-term. ...
  • Auto: $RAD 35.7% short headed North
  • bogiedog1: @Auto $RAD Been watching this one. Seems like it would be a good candidate to be bought or taken over.
  • Auto: @bogiedog1 $RAD Yes 8>)
  • iamchaoticcoder: @Auto $RAD Yes - Punching up against VWAP R2 (Thanks Dan ;D )
  • champ: $RAD, HOD, on all green volume and this volume is just about at the daily 5-day average.
  • schartline: $SQ $NUGT $IIPR $RAD $HTZ $NBEV Hey all, Thanks so much for doing what you do. I don't get to comment as much as I would like, but I do try to see what you are saying because you have such good advice and recommendations. This was my best week as a trader and most if not all of the good ideas were from here. Thanks again for letting the little guy tag along. #gettingbettertogether
  • Greendayguy: @schartline $SQ $NUGT $IIPR $RAD $HTZ $NBEV #gettingbettertogether Nice looking portfolio!
  • champ: $RAD, one reason is, the flu season.
  • Sher: $SQ - Day trade: Took profits, early AM, on Feb. 28th. $86 calls - Exit price, $4.05/share. $RAD - Shot myself in the foot on this one - Have been in and out of long calls, a couple of times, prior - Put several Mar. $16s on, yesterday, which I took profits on, way too early, this morning - Waited for a PB and then re-entered position with Feb. 28 $16.50s, which are currently sporting a fair amount of red... $GILD - Initiated new position with a few Mar. $70 calls - Heavy vol. and OI at this strike, 12,660 in vol. against OI of 14,420 - Today saw a big reversal of recent 2-week decline (FM hyped at noon), where it pulled back to the 20-day MA - Looking for a return, at least, to the pre-earnings high of $71.19 ($69.23, currently).
  • woodman: @champ $RAD - yet $CVS and $WBA are down.
  • champ: @woodman $RAD $CVS $WBA --- $RAD, this Bounce-Trade, has hi short interest, is mostly not in the others market areas, they have targeted locations in small communities...almost in rural areas. They are small cap vs the other 2 are large cap. Doesn't take a lot to move $RAD.
  • woodman: @champ $RAD $CVS $WBA - I have some $RAD. I like the bowl formation. Definitely looks different than the others.

  • Auto: @cgendro1 $RAD Great job! $$$$ = 8>) 8>) 8>) I'm still long
  • cgendro1: @Auto $RAD me too! I like the convergence of the 50/200dma on the squeeze, rising vol on up days, positive MACD cross. I plan to watch and ride the wave.. This has had quite the fall from grace compared to 2017! Been an ugly chart and now at least above the 50dma

  • Herb: $RAD has completely lost its mojo.
  • champ: $RAD, @ $12.26, down another 7% or so today...#Watch-for-Entry ---- New CEO really moved earnings and the stock-up to $23.88 but investors and traders took those gains off. The stock is still looking for the new low, just maybe it found that new low today, watch for entry. Set a watch alert, that works....the daily 10-day average volume, is now at a real high level, in the short term, that won't happen again for awhile.
  • champ: @Herb $RAD --- Yes, isn't that nice...
  • Herb: $RAD can't catch a bid, even at the 61.8% fib retracement (around 14.18). np.
  • Auto: $DT $KBH $AMZN $KSS $GE added $WING added next stop $100 $RAD short working
  • Auto: $RAD $PTON shorting added
  • Tango: @Henry $GLD $NUGT also... $RAD UP OVER 13% PREMARKET
  • Tango: @Tango $GLD $NUGT $RAD The higher the market climb, the greater the fear... I suppose. Plus, tariff agreement allows gold to biggest consumer, China.
  • Henry: @Tango $RAD I wasn't paying attention to RAD last week, a triple! A cure for ugly?
  • Auto: $PTON $RAD added shorting working $VIPS $PYPL $GE $CIEN $JD $SQ continues north 8>)
  • Herb: $RAD ugly action today. Gave away a profit in a buy write put on Tuesday.
  • Auto: @Herb $RAD sorry to hear a loss been shorting it next stop $11
  • Herb: @Auto $RAD Got greedy. Should have sold into the big gap up open. . . . .
  • Herb: $RAD bought a little at 15.53. Sold the jan 3 16.50 calls for 0.90.
  • champ: $RAD, HOD, still working, bounce-trade, dancing.
  • champ: $RAD, took this off, on that turn....for now.
  • champ: $RAD, still climbing, off of that same positive #News. Always need News for profits. If investor's miss the News, then they miss the profits.
  • Auto: $CHNG $SHAK $CPRT $JD $LEVI $AMZN added $PTON continues south short working watching $RAD for a short 8>)
  • Kid2old: @champ $RAD #News Stop raised to 19.97 on 20% of position.
  • Auto: $ABT added $RAD shorting tight leash
  • Herb: $RAD doesn't seem to know that the dumb money buys on day 3. . . . .
  • champ: @Herb $RAD --- Day-5...this is extremely strong, these daily moves are strong, in $2.00 increments. No such thing as dumb money buys on day-3, that is only a rule of thumb. .....Smart money, off of really strong news, are the buyers, this is Day-5, off of that strong-#News.
  • Wykeman: @Herb $RAD 27% shorts major squeeze going on here. Would be booking profits if i owned. Which I don't :(
  • DrScience: $RAD working again this morning.
  • PhilHarmonic: $RAD Continuing yesterdays move.
  • 86944T: @DrScience $RAD Thanks for posting. Moved my stop up for a decent profit if it reverses.
  • DrScience: $RAD STC JAN 12 Calls @ 2.72 (avg. cost basis 1.35 from yesterday at the close)… TTMAR! Left a few contracts still tracking position. And, still working, but getting tired RHRN. Stop below 8 EMA/PSAR on the 5-min chart.
  • Sher: $RAD - Big Q3 beat - Up 31%, pre-market!
  • Auto: $RAD 26% short just hit HOD heading north added
  • DrScience: $RAD Earnings being received nicely. Stock opened up 30%, above the post 1:20 split price that had been resistance., but needs to hold 11.50ish and clear $12 to keep the chips & dips coming into the New Year.
  • phgruver: @Auto $RAD $RAD reported earnings of $0.54/share vs expectations of $0.09. That's a monster beat. They also beat of sales and raised guidance. All good. So far, though, this has been a 40% move to the upside, well outside the BB's. Don't overstay your welcome.... (no position at this time, but I do own $CVS, which will probably move up a bit in sympathy.)
  • efrain007: $RAD bounce at support.
  • spmeyers: $RAD low volume phase 2 pullback; watching for phase 3
  • djmurph: @jthomas575 $RAD Wish I did. Up 11% today.
  • PhilHarmonic: $RAD Coming off a H&S bottom and breaking through 200dma. Purchased today @ 10.86
  • jthomas575: Any one have eyes on $RAD?
  • scottrades: @jthomas575 $RAD It's had a 90% move off the August Lows and is right at the 200 Day MA. Watch for profit taking here. I'd want a stop just below 9.00
  • DAN: ...
    $RAD -- Support at $8.00. Look for $10 top. This is a little cheat entry.
    $RCII -- I have a position, but Thursday’s big reversal is a problem. Good stock shouldn’t do that.
    $EBAY -- slam play. Alert $36
    $MNRO -- look for 3 candle re ...

  • Sher: $RAD - Trucking along - The recent tie-up with Amazon is definitely a boost for them: "Rite Aid will be Amazon's first Counter partner in the U.S. The service launched, last week, at more than a hundred Rite Aid stores and is set to reach over 1,500 by year's end. The service is available at no extra cost for all Amazon shipping options, including same-day and next-day delivery." Posted Jul 1, 2019 A takeover in the making... hope so. Long Oct. $9.00 calls
  • debeers: @Sher $RAD -@sher-i never would have seen this. Thanks so much for bringing this to our attention
  • Sher: $RAD - This thing's been on a tear, lately - Up another 10.5%, today - New CEO, mid-Aug. - Multiple failed turn-around attempts, in the past so, hopefully, he'll break that long-standing trend - Picked up a few Oct. $9.00 calls, to which I'll be adding... $SNAP - Nice snap-back from day's $14.57 low, despite pretty muted vol. - Rooting for completion of a "hammer" candlestick print before day's end - Long Oct. calls. $FLR - BTO several Sept. $20 calls, at yesterday's close, which are currently up 51% - Recently upgraded to a "Buy" with a $25 PT (currently @ $21.71) - Nice increase in money flow and stock has recaptured VWAP. $CLDR - Took nice gains in Oct. $7.50 calls, this morning - Have been in and out of this one several times - Just got back in, on intraday PB, with Jan. $10 calls.
  • champ: @Sher $RAD $SNAP $FLR $CLDR --- Great post....$RAD, just about all Bounce-Candidates are working, new CEO. Just about a double in 9-trading days.
  • CraigReynolds: $RAD Way down after big earnings miss, then come $AMZN. $RAD has almost recovered price at yesterday close.
  • Bob E: @CraigReynolds $RAD $AMZN Do you know of any reason for the snap back after the big earnings miss? To see a stock come back in pre-market is unusual!
  • CraigReynolds: @Bob E $RAD $AMZN Amazon will use for delivery/shopping. Do not know details.
  • Wolf: $RAD $PIR Kicking myself for taking profits too quickly.
  • indigo1948: @mradams0621 $CLDX - been there with $RAD -finally dumped it. Sometimes it is easier when you cannot see the ticker anymore.
  • mvdenapoles: $AVX looking like it can set up for long term success. Just took some profit on $TDOC up 93%. $RAD had high volume of Jan, '19 calls purchased - could be a move coming by years end.
  • stevef214: @Cheryl_in_FL $BBBY $DIA $DJX $EWW $FAS $FFIV $KSU $LUV $MA $MMM $OEX $RAD $SPX $SSYS $TXN $UAL $V $XEO $XSP $Z $ZG Hi what is TTM? Is that the criteria that John Carter uses to determine a VS?
  • mvdenapoles: anyone have a long term view on $RAD ?
  • Squid: @mvdenapoles $RAD unfortunately yes.
