Yes it is. It’s one of the top few on my watch list that I’ve been eyeing.ThankfulParticipantOctober 29, 2020 at 8:00 AMPost count: 270KEVIN MALECKIParticipantOctober 29, 2020 at 8:12 AMPost count: 18
Good job SSHETTY! I’ve continued to track IBM also, and felt it was a great, quality pick the last time. That’s too funny that you asked Sean probably about the same time he was editing his monthly newsletter!Scott PearcyParticipantOctober 29, 2020 at 9:02 AMPost count: 383
I am in with my order at $107.25……sshettyParticipantOctober 29, 2020 at 9:24 AMPost count: 111
thank you Sean ….I have been watching this stock and it was at a good price point thats why I wanted to ask Sean about it …yes Kevin I also thought it is funny how Sean had this pick for this month at the same time I asked about it…Sean HymanKeymasterOctober 29, 2020 at 9:37 AMPost count: 4535
Yeah, IBM was the top of 3 picks that were at the top of my watch list. I’d decided out of those, that IBM was more solid, cheaper and reaped a higher dividend yield…so it made the cut over all of the rest.
When it dipped hard last time, I’d had my eye on it too, but EWI won out (in my eyes) as potentially a better pick at the time, so we went with it then. EWI reaped us about 18% in around 2 months. So I was happy with that. IBM happened to reap a similar return over that same time. But the good news is that I got another shot at IBM. This time around, I’m not quite as quick to go back into EWI because of the lock-downs happening all over Europe that could continue to spread.Sean HymanKeymasterOctober 29, 2020 at 9:38 AMPost count: 4535
So, good job, sshetty! And you got your user name in the newsletter to boot! ha-ha.ThankfulParticipantOctober 29, 2020 at 9:41 AMPost count: 270
For my fellow British Baking heads, that’s an old school Paul Hollywood handshake right there 😛Sean HymanKeymasterOctober 29, 2020 at 1:28 PMPost count: 4535
And the hits just keep coming. This has got to be making the short-sellers squirm. While there are many reasons why a director may sell, there’s only one reason they’d buy…because they think its undervalued:

We’re in, officially, at $108. I know some of you are in at more favorable prices, but I always want our entries to be very realistic/obtainable and not some price that it hardly traded at for very long.ThankfulParticipantOctober 29, 2020 at 3:04 PMPost count: 270
I’m in at 107.25. Crazy how perfect the timing is. I know you don’t know these things in advance Sean and you’re just looking for value in a great company, but man this is prefect timing.Sean HymanKeymasterOctober 29, 2020 at 3:23 PMPost count: 4535
Thanks. Well, in all fairness, its perfect timing for one day. Ha-ha. So if I were an intraday trader, I’d have hit it nicely today. ha-ha. Plus, it happened to have two good news announcements that happened that I had no idea would happen, ahead of time.
But what did I know? It was cheap/hated, solid, huge enticing dividend and through the bottom of both daily and weekly lower Bollinger Bands.
(By the way, for call options, when the stock is cheap and at or below both bottom bands, it’s a good time for long-dated in or near the money calls, etc. I don’t mean specific to this stock, but just as a general principles with stock options in general.)
