Greggs: the awesome power of a vegan butty

Recommended Posts

It's moving up from and 'oversold' condition.  :D

Wonder if it has any further to fall.  The 200 day SMA is approaching.  Directional Movement?

It looks like it is heading back down again, by Jove!

I am such an idiot for going in and out of short trades on this stock.

I'm just an idiot in general :D

Greggs is still falling.  A free moneymaking machine ... make the most of it. 

I sound like one of those 'get your PPI claim in before it's too late' advertisements ...

I hide my open order in order to protect my modesty but I'm short to 1800.

:D

It's been 'oversold' for ages and finally there's been a buying spree!

Maybe time to think about going long, perhaps on a future contract.

UBS upped its rating on shares of bakery chain Greggs to 'buy' from 'neutral' on Wednesday, lifting the price target to 2,300p from 1,880p as it pointed to "significant" growth opportunity.

Greggs has bent me over and gone in dry today ... I despair of trading and investing.  I just don't see how anyone who isn't an insider can make money from it.

2% savings accounts beckon.

Gone long on a March 2020-dated future.  100 point stop, 300 point target.

Seriously CBA with the 'technical analysis' nonsense any more.

Let's see if we can get a couple hundred points off this long.  A pick-up in volume along with crossing above RSI >30 and price is above 10-day SMA.

Surely people will want their vegan sausage rolls even when all hell breaks loose in Euroland.

IG's punitive spread on Greggs makes it impossible to get a profitable trade on just now ... forget about it.

Are we going to resume our short, my bonnie wee bairns?  What was UBS' intervention all about?

A lower high or just sideways action, my bonnie bairns?  🤔  I had my stop set just above the most recent high, but I panicked at the prospect of it going even higher and covered my short at a big loss.  :(

It's make or break time, my bonnie bairns.  Been consolidating long time, converging to the mean - now it looks as if the uptrend will continue.

Zut alors!  Wonder if it will break 1952, if so then I might be tempted to short it.  :(

The UBS upgrade and the subsequent jump in share price made me lose my nerve.  B'tards!

This could have a lot further to go.  Maybe it will fill that gap :(

Do you think it has further to fall?

there was a lot of interest in this one between Mid Feb & Mid May, those holders must still be there, so they may take some shaking out. 1700 must hold for them. I think they'll hold on for a while, unless there's some sort of market shock

Greggs reported that total sales rose 12.4% for the six weeks to 9 November, and it now expects 2019 pre-tax profit to be above previous estimate

 

Maybe UBS was right, couple of months back?  Or could it turn out to be another good chance to go short on the vegan butty 🤣

    • Read an interesting article on Yahoo finance which showed the majority of gains in the Nasdaq is down to the big 6 tech firms and without them there would have been no gain in the Nasdaq since 2016 and the majority of movement is down to the price of 6 companies. It would appear, in the search for dividend and profit everyone has opted to buy Amazon, Facebook, Apple, Alphabet, Microsoft and Netflix, as a herd reaction. No one has stopped to question whether they are over-bought at all, or if they may have questioned that premise, the thought would have been quickly cast asunder in the wake of evidence to the contrary (prices of the big 6 only bulldozing up). This may have lead to a false narrative, where we may consider everything is rosy in the garden of equities and everything  will all be alright soon, as long as the big 6 keep on growing, even if much other evidence suggests the contrary. Which it is. From employment to housing arrears, from relationships with allies and perceived foes to actual communal transmission of Covid 19. From stratospheric  Fed and govt debt to trade imbalance, from irrational exuberance to actually facing reality now. Instead of relentless optimism, relentless realism.  It would appear we are in for another week of exuberance. The sun is shining, people are out enjoying themselves and one could be forgiven for thinking the crisis is over and we can all go back to doing exactly what we were doing before this inconvenience struck. Reassessment can be inconvenient too. No one likes to be wrong, (though we often are). Least of all the Potus, who's principle motivation may not be the well being and good health of his people, more the well being of the economy, more specifically the price of equity. He encourages more exuberance even when evidence may suggest otherwise.  It is earnings season for equities, the reports, many of  which would make grim reading in more sober times, will be ignored for even the merest hint that the future will be brighter or it wont get any worse, from a reaction to Remdesivir (which appears to improve more than it harms, improves 9 harms 3...a litigation lawyers dream) to any glimmer of positive data.  Then one looks at the price of Tesla and realise the equity markets really have gone potty. Look at Tesla's numbers and its price makes no sense at all. Herd irrational exuberance in a nutshell. VW and Toyota p/e  far less than 10, now look at Tesla and you know its share price is on steroids and anything else the doctor will prescribe.  I recently drove to the New Forest to visit a good friend. It is normally a patience sapping experience, but left on Friday 7 pm and arrived at 9;10 pm in record breaking totally unbelievable 2 hours 10 minutes. In July. Normally, it takes at least 3 hours. Roads are still quiet. Which leads me to question again the premise of a "V" shaped recovery  and consider whether those that suggested a "V" shaped recovery actually have very poor hand writing and their version of a V more closely resembles a flattish tick or even a very sloppy W. I digress, the point being there has to come a time when the US has to take off its rose tinted glasses and see the reality of Now for what it is, rather than wishing it all away for a brighter tomorrow. Might not happen this week as equities push higher but you can't escape it forever. Can you?
