Taking stock, 11/11

Hey everyone. Hello again and welcome to our (semi) weekly stock report, which is a light-hearted look at what's happening with Auburn's football program. The Furman game was at least somewhat entertaining, for reasons we'll discuss below, and that means we have some market movement.

I hope you sold PPL before it was de-listed.

UB Eric Smith: That's U.B. for utility back. He has been a subtle-yet-substantive element of the Tigers' attack this season. Smith, aka Piston Hurricane (from "Punch-Out" fame), has been a beast on third down as a receiver. He also showed surprising quickness as a tailback last week, though maybe Furman had something to do with that.


KR Philip Pierre-Louis: Surely that's a wrap, right? He initially was scared of the ball against Furman, then decided to field a punt while running backward. He fumbled. The Paladins recovered. PPL also had a negative return. Think Worldcom with this stock: Here today, gone tomorrow.


WR D'Angelo Benton: His stock was dropping last week after all but disappearing from the Tigers' enterprise, but he caught six balls against Furman. And he looked good doing it. Was it all a mirage? Benton surely didn't think so, proclaiming afterward that he will become an offensive fixture before long. I'm not sure about that, but I'm certain Benton has some skills.


LB Adam Herring: The guy must be cursed. He's useless last season, endures painful surgery during the offseason, falls into a plum role earlier this season and now he's again injured. Gene Chizik said it's the same problem, too. Auburn desperately needs Herring as (at the very least) a fall-back option in case of injury. That apparently won't happen. Chizik said freshman Jonathan Evans is the No. 4 guy right now.


S Demond Washington: He has closing speed and can become fearless when needed. Say that for him. With Zac Etheridge out for the season, Washington, a cornerback by trade, has made the move to strong safety and looked good against Furman. Yeah, it was Furman. I was impressed with Washington's acceleration and direct approach toward tackling. Georgia will find ways to test him this weekend, but he may be up for the big challenges. He has a lot of guile -- and some skill.


WR Travante Stallworth: He was knocked from the Furman game with what looked like a knee injury and, honestly, things don't look good. Chizik, as always, was evasive when asked about the freshman's status. Anecdotal information suggests Stallworth is headed for surgery, which robs Auburn of another up-and-coming playmaker. I think he has star potential, though some people I trust think he'll settle in as an average wideout. We shall see.

More power to you, Eddie. I've never been able to hate UGA, probably due to the AU connection with Shug, Vince, Erk, et al. Every calorie, joule, erg, etc. of my hate energy is directed squarely at UA-T. I don't think FSJ can even fathom the joy it would bring me if UA-T would set a NCAA losing streak record.... ok, back to the real world :-(

THT I second that emotion.

Though I'll say that having lived in Georgia now for almost five years, I still can't muster up the same level of hatred towards them. My UGA fan friends are all actual graduates of the school and for the most part level-headed and reasonable folks. Since I don't listen to local sports talk, I don't hear the bunch of clowns I'm sure are out there calling in about the dawgs.

So, my hate remains squarely focused on UAT.

Hmmm, as you know, I don't hate. In terms of teams I dislike, UGA isn't close to Alabama. Actually, UGA isn't bad. LSU and UT bother me more. Both seem to have a similar sense of entitlement. Florida would also probably be higher on the dislike meter. I have always considered Auburn and Georgia closely tied together.

Chris Todd's stock is up, but it's not skyrocketing just yet.

Whittling Furman's secondary isn't a career achievement. Plus, and maybe it's just me, but Todd seems to be throwing with a different motion now.

I see more shoulder being used. Like he's turning that shoulder over when he throws. Maybe it's just beat-hack myopia.

As a reminder, though, PPL is a redshirt freshman coming off a knee injury. Let's not close the book on him yet. I would buy his stock since it is low at this time with the anticipation that he will be a contributor somewhere by the time he is a senior.

I've been living in Jawga for 6 years now. I still get way more grief from the few but loud bammers around here than the UGA crowd. Most of the UGA fans I know are also grads. One friend(and I can't use that word w/bammers) actually played there.

Having said that, I can tell you that while Auburn folk think of UGA as a cousins, UGA thinks of Auburn folk as poor relations. They still can't understand why we have the lead in the series record. It confounds them. To UGA, Auburn is just somebody else on their schedule they don't want to lose to, but not necessarily somebody they have to beat.

PPL ...buy this penny stock. there's nothing to lose.

Sorry to have missed all the stock talk today. But forget all the fundamental analysis we've seen so far; its the technical analysis that suddenly looks great for us and all but guarantees a 9-3 season.

Here's my latest TA on Auburn: Remember, TA focuses on nothing but the numbers. So we start out with 37 points, established a good, solid base after the IPO. Then score 49 the next week to confirm a wonderful uptrend. Drop back to 41 against WV; that wasn't bad at all; just a normal correction. Showed tremendous support that it didn't go back to 37. Then the 51 against Ball State further confirmed that this was a stock on which to back up the truck.

The week before the TN game, I said we needed to score around 42. That would confirm the support in the low 40s, and point toward a stock price in the 80s by the end of the season. Unfortunately, we only scored 26. I was happy to win, but was devastated that we broke all support, crashed thru 37, and were now confirmed as a down trending stock. I said that I hoped that applying TA to football teams didn't work.

Unfortunately, it does. The charts don't lie, and we put up a measly 23 on ARK, confirming that we were headed lower. 14 against KY proved us to be a dog stock; 10 against LSU said we were likely finished and headed toward 0.

But then an amazing thing happened! The buyers stepped up and ran us all the way back to 33 against MS! This just shows the pent-up energy that was there all along, just waiting for a discernible bottom, and the LSU game was it. The uptrend needed to be confirmed - it was to the tune of 63 points!

Our stock has now officially gone parabolic, and we are about to see a moonshot! I think that we score high 60s against GA and at least low 70s against the evil empire. The 80s are not out of the question.

Just remember this - the charts never lie.

Sorry for the long post, but I wanted everyone to understand where we are headed so you can prepare. We are going to the moon! ALL ABOARD!

Blogger Peter "Big Snacks" Frankenschmidt said...

I only say that because you didn't factor in volume in your charts. Looking at the landscape at the ends of the 10 and 63, and I saw very low volume. That tells me that a couple of people were driving the price down low midmonth, only to buy a few shares really high at month close so that their statements show a very overvalued stock. Hedge funds have been known to do this with pink-slip shells in order to show a large profit, collect management fees, and pray they don't fail before the end of the next period. Red flag in my book.

Wakerider, you shoulda stuck with it. But still not too late to get rich off this one stock. This is the best opportunity since Healthsouth traded at .08. I'll admit I didn't buy until it rose to .12, but I sold all my shares over $5, so it worked out ok.

Peter, no sec rules problems here at all. Everything is public knowledge; you can read the scores on espn. A valid point on volume; attendance was really only around 70,000 at the MS game, but I've heard it was up for homecoming.

The thing I'm most concerned about now is that we are gonna put so many points up on uat that it will knock them out of a BCS bowl when they lose to Fl. The means that uat will go to the Capital One Bowl and we'll have to take the Outback. If we only put up 40 or so on them, then they could still go to the Sugar Bowl and we'd get the Capital One. Oh well.

Just remember this - the charts do not lie.

A good evening to all.

Don't worry about that 'market manipulation' charge, Coosa.

Since PF said it was an SEC violation, that means the refs probably missed it.

And I don't think insider trading is a reviewable penalty anyways.

Mornin' all

This is a quote from JGT Early in the thread yesterday (that I missed)...

"Chris Todd's stock is up, but it's not skyrocketing just yet.

Whittling Furman's secondary isn't a career achievement. Plus, and maybe it's just me, but Todd seems to be throwing with a different motion now.


I watched the AU review and thought Todd's arm motion was different too - more Over The Top (ie Farve) and seemed to have a nice bit of ZIP on it. Really turning his hips/shoulder into the throws.

Ya'll may have discussed this further deeper in the thread - I was just too lazy to find it this morning.

Finally- I see where Hawthorne is now going to be splitting time with Trott this week at the slot WR position. I think this is a good thing for us. I could be wrong, but I really like a WR in that spot more than a TE.

BREAKING NEWS: Nu'Keese Richardson and Janzen Jackson arrested for armed robbery

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Two UT football players are now facing charges of armed robbery.

A member of the UT Sports Information Department confirmed to us that Nu'Keese Richardson and Janzen Jackson were arrested about 2:00 o'clock Thursday morning.

The incident happened at the Pilot convenience store on Cumberland Avenue.

Police say the men were armed with a small semi automatic handgun and robbed a person in the parking lot.

Police arrested them a few minutes later.

Again, UT football players Nu'Keese Richardson and Janzen Jackson are under arrest in connection with an early morning armed robbery.

WERK,

Thoughts and prayers for your Dad. I went through a similar ordeal with my dad many, many years ago. He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and I was with him through his chemo. He survived to live another almost 2 decades and died of another problem rather than the cancer. I put it all in God's hand at the time and he did the rest. I can think of no better place to put your challenges and problems in life. Keep the faith and War Eagle.

Any of yall hearing some crap where Auburn fans (student section im guessing) are going to all have yellow flags for the Alabama game and throw them when the refs make a bad call? theres a bunch of facebook groups about it and such
I say this is sorta classless..I donno what to think yet
I tend to think it will make us look like crybabies when Bama is more than likely winning

Good morning to all. I'm having trouble finding the stock symbol for Auburn football. I thought it would be AU, but that's a gold stock. I'm ready to put my life's savings into it, but gotta find the symbol first.

claseless? maybe.

A funny way to make a statement about an obvious front office consipiracy? You betca...just as long as they don't throw them on the field. That'll get you ejected and a 15 yard penalty.

Putting your life savings into AU isn't a bad thing right now. Probably a modest short-term return at this point. I think gold in nearing a sell point, though.

I was stupid and sold my gold at $550/ounce. I had two one ounce coins that I had inherited when it was a little of $400/ounce. I felt pretty happy about it, since I had seen some pretty hefty loses on it through the late 90s/early 2000s. Unfortunately, it spiked up to 700 a month or two later and now trades at over 1100/ounce.

-semiautomatic handgun.

What's the law there on committing crimes with guns? In Florida, that's 10 years minimum on top of the robbery charge if convicted. He should still have eligibility through 2022.

Michael Oher had every excuse to turn out bad.

Nukeese Richardson had every reason to not turn out bad.

Michael O was an humble kid that, with his adopted parent's guidance, remained humble.

Nukeese was a 5 star ego waiting for disaster.

Trying to recruit 5 star athletes? Make sure they don't have 5 star egos.
