GOOG is down = Market will be down?

The Internet search giant missed its quarter, and as I'm looking at after hours trades its down over $53.00, what confuses me is why is Yahoo! being dragged down as well, Why is Rediff.com being dragged down. I am still Bullish on Google, the whole reason they missed was because of the government, yes the government. Google is getting taxed to hell and can't defer as much as analysts wanted, thanks to the government double taxing of your S-Class corporations they had to pay well over 31% to taxes. Analysts made their calculations on a tax rate of 30%, some as low as 26%.

Google still may have some downside in it, still there will also be some value players that see this as an opportunity ( I didn't see it dropping to $400 as an opportunity). I am not touching this stock till friday at least because of the "Manic Panic People" who will dump GOOG using a market order like a moron.

simply put YHOO is still cheap, and GOOG almost is, in a perfect world I would pick it up below $330, I don't see it dropping much below $300, but I was wrong on Tumbleweed so I don't offer guarantees on this either.

Meanwhile UNH has popped today, Health care is the second biggest buzz word out there, and UNH is right there for the Health Care Cost Consolidation play.

Ok so here's my crazy thought, I am thinking the QQQQ might be the place to be, its going to be dragged down tomorrow during trading, will it go GASP, below $41? it may be a nice safe position for 5-10% of your securities for growth we'll see over the year.

In response to Salbert's Question

Even though I won't buy it, what was the stock? Also, did you go to the Mad Money main event?

They send it as an image so it doesnt get filtered out as easy, I just got another one today. The sad part is oeioke are buying into it. This huge PR campaign...this burst of volume is about 27,000 shares so far today, but whats their average volume? 4200 shares a day... I could account for this company fluctuation in market cap by 643,000 with a $200 trade. seriously don't touch this IFNX thing imho.

In the meantime while we're talking about penny stocks, I might as well throw my money at a ponzi scheme, which while I am a member of one http://alientrust.blogspot.com , I'm only playing with other people's money (I spend about $8 on my own and racked up $700 from referrall commissions and it took off from there) but I wouldn't reccomend doing one of those unless you want a break from the football bets and OTB. They claim to invest in FOREX, which I'm not going near because the people in forex can sometimes trade with 99% of their money on margin, I don't go near margin, although I may start selling short after this year when I build up some cash reserves.

If I were to invest in a Penny stock, it would probably be Mphase Technologies, they do some DSL components for lucent and apparently have a nanotechnology battery that they're workign with bell labs that if it ever takes off, it will be big. I might buy 500 shares of this for the fun of it, but I want see if the stock dips below a quarter if I were to.

I also think my money is alot safer in UNH which has been takign a beating even though it reported 18% growth, UNH is definietly getting into Mon' Back area now and if I had another 2 grand in free cash flow I'd buy up a lil bit more. my position in UNH is down about $70, which is no big deal

As for the main event, no I haven't gone yet, because I was bedridden for about 2 weeks I didn't make it to the event. I sent an e-mail to paige who will let me know about the schedule for a future main event and get me the VIP tickets she promised. I can't find the damn cord to hook up my camera so I don't have pictures of the classroom set. But I did see my arm on tv the other night! and I'll see it again February 1st when they're in Harvard, maybe even my whole body, but damn they got some nice cheerleaders for that promo which is a total rip of Good Will Hunting.

YHOO Takes a dive, GOOG losing the bandwagon

Ok, so here's the deal, Yahoo! did not meet its numbers, in fact it missed by about 14 million dollars. It's stock, which was priced for perfection. Its stock took a dive, it lost over 4 Billion in market capitalization in a couple minutes over 14 million miss. I think this drop is unjustified.

I still also think YHOO will drop even farther. possibly under $34.00, and you know what that means? MON BACK! Yahoo! I think will have some down days but will within the next 3 months climb above $37, possible $38, I wouldn't buy it at anything above $35.50, and that would be minimal, between $34 adn $35 I'd deepen my position and continue buying on weakness.

Google in the meantime got its first 2 downgrades. Goog is also priced for perfection but half the reason yahoo was weak was because google's taking all their business. Goog will still hit $500, and if it continues to drop I may buy a few shares myself. They may have problems with false clickthroughs, but I've known someone that's gotten their account deleted because of themselves clicking on their own account. and they are taking measures to reduce it.

So keep watching Yahoo!, It's becoming a value play.

I have been watchign UNH (United Health Group), a health care cost consolidation player. Theyrecently took a big drop and I'm betting that they'll be at $64 within the next 6 months.

I would buy UNH at anything under $60.50, I think its currently slightly oversold right now and belongs over $61. Many people I think are selling it off because of the complications caused by Medicare Part D, but infact UNH is set up to profit from it, they're going to be simplifying things for the individual elder and allow them to get more benefits, which in turn gets them the government money being filtered through Medicare Part D.

UNH may still see an additional pullback, Although I see resistance at 60, and if it for some reason drops down to $55 or below I will cut my losses.

Thanks to a Piper Jaffrey upgrade my shares of MDRX popped, and I have to admin I was in way over the 20% limit with this thing. But the more I did research the more I continued to buy under $14. I kept on buying and buying. and now its completely paid off.

I got back home and noticed huge volume in the AM, because I didnt yet know about the upgrade I only sold it when it was up about 1.50, but I had bough into it much lower.

My portfolio is now up about 10% for the year! not too shabby. this is my first trade of the year, and what a nice one it is. my portfolio was up 17% total last year I think (might be 16.89%) but i think with dividends and interest on my small cash position it got pushed up.

I am look at buying MO (Altria) I've missed the moves in alot of stocks I've been watching, like UTX, and I don't like AVN at its current levels, although if it dropped down to $2.70 I would buy a few hundred shares.

I will be returning to school this friday and my posts should return to being more frequent as I'll have access to high speed internet.

I also think I saw myself on Mad money last night, you know that scene where the kids hold up the letter and flip them, I'm the "A" in the background. It was worth the experience, I wonder if they show me at all elsewhere, but CNBC doesn't have a budget for extra's, but i did eat half a pizza on their dime :)

also I talked to paige the audience producer and should have tickets to a show sometime after May since I've been sick or working lately.
