We're blown away by the day-to-day inconsistencies of this market.
Yesterday we were eyeing
Deere & Co.
for another trade (China pact, etc.). I even proposed it at one of our meetings. The stock jumped a deuce.
Today the stock's down three. It is getting killed. You bought it yesterday you look like you just went through the roto-tiller. You've just been hayed and baled.
These kinds of moves make you want to scream. They are debilitating and senseless and crushing. They are what makes me want to sell every breakout and buy every breakdown!
If I had any hair, Deere would have taken it away.
