Have been watching ADBE stock-equity;

yesterday it dipped in a way that caused me to jump on it;

http://www.nasdaq.com/symbol/adbe/stock-chart

looking for a several percent rise & then selling;

using profit to fund (possibly) many years of CC at ?$10? per month...?

(is there further discount for annual subscription?)

am not encouraging others to do this, as there is a gamble involved,

especially now, NKorea events could cause all stocks to drop, but...

Until it all crashes.

Or worse, a slow slow decline over many years. :o :o :o 

The former can bounce back more quickly...

Everything dipped yesterday because of the talk of war with North Korea.  Maybe you should buy a fallout shelter and radiation suit.

At least if there's a nuclear war, we'll have some new editorial stock subjects to shoot.

Jeff,

 

Adobe will make you pay through their microstock site taking sales from you.

I'd buy stock in Alamy if they went public with ambitious plans to take on the stock photo market with exciting new initiatives.

 

Really, I would. :)

They should be sellin' like hotcakes here in Vancouver soon.

 

I make a joke, but it's no joke at all...

Seems utterly surreal to me to be buying and selling shares on the ups and downs of a possible nuclear war.

Some believe market over-reacts to almost ALL events.

Then eventually readjusts...

Until the next over-reaction...

Negative over-reactions, positive over-reactions, buy-sell-buy-sell etc etc

Not blaming you for a second Jeff.

 

I did the same thing the day after the Brexit vote when the shares plummeted.

Bam!

Sold all my ADBE now 20 days later.

Years of CC covered after taxes at current pricing.

Not buying CC right off, but more relaxed about it...

Actually using Adobe CC might make you some money too.

Clarification: not upgrading from my current CS6 to CC immediately, but when,

considering my skill limitations, CC is an undeniable advantage vs. CS6...

Nice job, Jeff. It's always rewarding to make the correct call in a stock trade. I just looked at the ADBE 3 month trend and it has been steadily increasing, with a few dips and upward corrections along the way.

 

Believe me, I am no financial investing expert, however I think it is more and more evident that 'trading' overall is a tough way to go. That's because you might hit a few wins in a row when you buy on dips and resell on the rebounds, except that  every once in a while, that dip may actually compound into a long, downward trend, perhaps the beginning of a major market correction, or financial problems of the particular company.

 

Then you are stuck. If you sell for a loss to prevent further loss, maybe that rebound was just around the corner. If you hold on waiting for that rebound, the stock price might continue to decline, and it might be years before it returns, if ever. The flip side is that if you buy and sell the stock of a growing company, you are limited to just a small gain,

from the dip to rebound price. If the stock price then leaps much higher, then what do you do on a dip? Do you wait for a bigger dip at a lower price, or try trading at much higher prices?  If you just held on thru dips and rebounds, you would see a lot more profit in a rising stock. 

 

The 'trick' with stocks is to be an investor, not a trader. Those who make the big bucks in stocks buy and hold a diversified portfolio for the long term, or like Warren Buffet says, forever. The dividends pay handsome incomes alone, while stock appreciation is tax free until sold.

Agree.

Am never trader, but am sometimes short-term investor.

Always prepared to hold long-term, always willing to sell short-term if gains are quick & reasonable.

ADBE dipping again &, if a bit more, maybe another chance for Adobe to pay even more of my future CC!!

(not advising anyone else to do same...)

BAM!  My second round ADBE purchase Sep 25 sold this AM

as price surged beyond all expectations -- free CC for life...

(but staying with CS6E until powerful reasons make CC learning curve acceptable)
