Longs Showing Some Love

Good things are happening in Bon-Ton, Baxter, GM and Potash.  Bon-Ton Stores (BONT), Baxter (BAX), General Motors (GM) and Potash (POT) are all jiggy. A good thing.

Baxter Bumped Up

Shares rose by nearly $2. I had my head into a number of conference calls yesterday, and I didn't see the near $2-per-share rise in Baxter (BAX), a recent Best Ideas list inclusion. (Note: I recently added to the position.) The most important reason...

Adding to Baxter Long

I am buying more shares. I am addding to Baxter (BAX) long now.

What I'm Bidding On

Looking at a few while stuck in EWR. I am bidding for more Ocwen (OCN) at $39, Bon-Ton Stores (BONT) at $10.50 and Northwest Bancshares (NWBI) at $14.50, Baxter (BAX) is bid well and now well above my $73.40 limit. Some other of my holdings like P&G...

It Pays to Be Picky

Our selective long book is doing well. Selectivity is paying off. Our long book is doing well in a down tape, including Ocwen (OCN, our newest Kass Katch), Baxter (BAX), Bon-Ton (BONT), Potash (POT), Citigroup (C), Northwest Bancshares (NWBI) and Ge...

Portfolio Review

Life insurer shorts are working. Finally, MetLife (MET) and Lincoln National (LNC) are meeting my (short) expectations. My only two buys -- and they were small -- were Baxter (BAX) and Bon-Ton (BONT).

P&G Ups Its Divvy

A 7% hike. Procter & Gamble (PG) raised its dividend by 7% this morning. Procter & Gamble is one of my core investment longs and on my Best Ideas list. I dont mind a bunch of defensive stocks such as Procter & Gamble and and Baxter (BAX) in this sor...

Bought Baxter

And that's it -- so far. My only buy today was Baxter (BAX).

The Good and Bad

One of each. General Motors (GM) is trading better. Baxter (BAX) is not.

Portfolio Review

Here are my current positions (long and short). Longs: Apple (AAPL), Baxter (BAX), Bon-Ton Stores (BONT), Citigroup (C), Ford (F), General Motors (GM), Monitise (MONI.L/MONIF), Northwest Bancshares (NWBI), Potash (POT), Procter & Gamble (PG), ProSha...

Baxter, You Are My Little Gentleman!

Baxter (BAX) acts like a dog with fleas. I added today.

Bidding for 3 Stocks

Bidding for these three. I am bidding for more Bon-Ton Stores (BONT) at $10.80, Baxter International (BAX) at $73.25 and GM (GM) at $34.50.

Today's Buys

GM and Baxter. My only long purchases today were General Motors (GM) and Baxter (BAX). I just missed adding to Bon-Ton Stores (BONT).

Dead-Cat Bounce?

But I have been wrong before. Baxter (BAX) made a nice move off its lows, where I was lucky to buy some. General Motors (GM) is still an underperformer, however. My largest short is now PowerShares QQQ (QQQ), as it seems to me the high-octane stocks...

Make Mine a Double

My Baxter position, that is. I just doubled up on Baxter (BAX).

Cramer: JNJ Deal Will Lead to a Buyback and Much More Upside

Johnson & Johnson is selling its Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics business to The Carlyle Group for $4 billion.

Take the Good With the Bad

The good = Bon-Ton, Baxter and Potash; the bad = GM. Bon-Ton Stores (BONT), Baxter (BAX), Potash (POT) and bonds are making me smile. General Motors (GM) not so much.

Baxter Climbs Higher on No News

I couldn't find any reason for the share price advance. As I mentioned in the comments section after the close of trading on Friday, shares of Baxter (BAX), a new long, rose by $0.80 in the after hours. I couldn't find any reason for the share price...

Loading Up on Baxter Long

At $72.50. I am backing up the truck in Baxter (BAX) at $72.50 now.

Bought More Baxter

All the way down to $72.85. I added to Baxter (BAX) all the way down to $72.85. Not sure why the shares sold off.

Portfolio Moves

Here's a glimpse. I have only two stock shorts left, Starbucks (SBUX) and Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B). I also have a small position in Direxion Daily Small Cap Bear 3X Shares (TZA). Today I have added to my ProShares Short 20+ Year Treasury (TBF) lon...

Baxter a Best Idea

I bought shares at the open. I paid the opening $73.25 for Baxter (BAX). The shares go on my Best Ideas list.

Buying Baxter

I'm picking up shares today after the spin-off announcement. In an attempt to boost innovation, raise profitability and reward shareholders, Baxter (BAX) has announced that the company is separating into two parts -- one for developing and marketing...
