Thread: Time to buy JOE
Why would we take MORE stock tips from you? You were completely wrong on your JOE recommendation.

'completely wrong' ok dilbert. you don't like 40% gains in 12 weeks, just because the pick comes back to test the bottom. Setting aside the fact that I outlined a 50 yr hold period, if you make 40% on anything in a couple months, take profits.
As far as JOE goes now. Now, again, is the time to buy JOE for 50 yr hold again. This time, if you make 40% on your money in the short term, you might want to lock in some of those gains, by selling calls.

40% gain was artifical, fueled by rumors that Berkowitz was going to take the company private. It has dropped like a rock since that rumor burned off, and contiues to drop. Anyone that would recommend holding this stock for 50 years should spend some time driving their developments. Their best land is long gone, and anyone that suggests otherwise doesn't have a clue.

Fairholme Fund FAIRX, managed by Morningstar Domestic-Stock Manager of the Decade Bruce Berkowitz, continues to suffer outflows. The fund shed $1.2 billion in estimated outflows in May after experiencing outflows of an estimated $1 billion in April.
This marks the fund's third consecutive month of outflows and brings the three-month total to an estimated $2.5 billion. With the fund down nearly 8% for the year to date through May, total assets have dropped to about $16 billion as of May from about $20 billion in February.
After three months of net redemptions, Berkowitz said during an interview with Bloomberg Television at the 2011 Morningstar Investment Conference that the fund now holds roughly 5% of its assets in cash, which would imply about $800 million in cash holdings. This is a dramatic shift. As of Feb. 28, the fund had about 25% of its then $20 billion portfolio in cash.
Einhorn on the other hand is buying an interest in the Mets, go figure.

Not sure if it was a good or bad day for JOE.
Bad: Kitson purchased his debt on the Babcock Ranch for $49mm...that equates to $536 per acre for 91,000 acres just outside of Ft. Myers...terrible comp for JOE
Good: Rick Scott announced he's running for re-election in 2014. If re-elected, Scott will definitely make sure Florida begins producing electricity from its own natural gas reserves before leaving office. JOE could become an energy play when that happens given their vast amounts of land in NW Florida and coastal assets in Port St. Joe.
Last I looked, almost 80% of the stock's float is shorted!
Did you really just suggest that we should buy stock in JOE because if Scott gets reelected in several years they will start fracking?
Nothing like drilling rigs and carcinogens to improve the value of your high-end vacation land prices!

[QUOTE=scooterbug44;752260]Did you really just suggest that we should buy stock in JOE because if Scott gets reelected in several years they will start fracking?
No, I did not. There was no buy suggestion or fracking referrence in the post.
How were you thinking the natural gas was going to get out of the ground?

lol nice call on sprint . instead of a double it sunk 50% just like joe. for a cheapie stock if it can make it and not go under $3 phm could be a 5-8 bagger if itcan survive till an up cycle

OK, folks.... only 49 years left in my trade idea. So sorry the stock is at 15 and change for folks that didn't take the 70% profit that was available only a few weeks after my last recommendation. How many years does it take to make 70% in a CD now?
We're coming into that time of year again, where the stock can damn near double, from the point of my recommendation last year from 17 to 30 last February... In today's stock market volatility, this is the new reality.

You are truly clueless, and I doubt you even have the financial acumen to read and understand their regulatory filings. JOE is a dying company that has only been profitable one quarter in years (and that was as a result of a one-off timber sale), that has sold its best real estate, and has not properly marked to market all of its existing real estate developments (hence the SEC investigation and the class action lawsuit).

Last year I recommended all my friends buy Molycorp (MCP, they mine rare earth metals) when it was at 30. I told them to hold it for 50 years, but secretly I took profits at its absolute peak of 75 six months later, a profit of 150%! I then repurchased at 50, then sold again at 60. I did this same thing 2 more times. It's now back at 30, but I'm up over 200%! My friends are actually down based on my recommendation, but oh well, the fifty years aren't up yet. I know I'm posting this after the fact, but trust me, I was able to time my buys and sells perfectly at the peaks and troughs each time. I'm thinking of opening up a mutual fund!
Greek bonds are paying a high interest rate - let's put all our money in those!
Less risky than JOE.

"...I was able to time my buys and sells perfectly at the peaks and troughs each time..."
So did John Corzine.
For a while.
