OK, let's *play* BUY-HOLD-SELL
« on: April 12, 2012, 07:37:49 PM »
Pick a player and tell us whether you're buying stock in him, selling stock you had previously purchased, or just holding the stock you purchased and will wait-and-see.

I'll start with Isner

Big John's hot right now and I think his stock is oversold. I had acquired a nice chunk of it a while back, but now I'm going contrarian and will sell. If you're interested in why my change of heart, you can read my comments here.

Now you go.

DOH!!!

selling Fish!!! Good one, Dallas

ash, buying Tipsy. That's interesting. I'm going to start selling some Tipsy stock and buying more Almagro because I think they will swap spots in the rankings.

I made a small fortune buying Angelique Kerber stock early. Now I'm going to buy some stock in her countrywoman Mona Barthel. I'm buying stock in Spaniard Garbi Blanco, too.

I picked Kaia Kanepi to win 2012 AO but she lost in 1R. I'm still holding all of my stock in Kaia. However, I bought a lot of stock in Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova picking her to win Wimby two years ago. I've dumped it all.


Back to the men, they are really tough since all the overbought players (Dmitrov, Tomic, Cilic, Dolgolopov, Raonic, Nishikori) suck or have shortcomings. I bought up a lot of stock in Raonic after 2011 AO, but I've been gradually selling it off with each injury. Never bought stock in the other 4. I'll buy Albert Ramos. I like this lefty's style of play. Another unconventional Spaniard.

I don't think he consistent enough, it's great that he's made it to top 10 but I have this feeling he'll be out of the top 10 soon. just a feeling.

Yeah. That's the Fishy-feeling I get about him, too (bad pun intended).  ;-()

Very similar story lines between the two.

main reasons for buying cilic :

1. judging by his 2011 clay season performance, he only lost to Fed(monte-carlo), delpotro( madrid), nadal( rome) & some guy in R1( roland garros)..if he doesn't run into any freaks, he could make the semis. at least.
2. i like this guy..he's got my attention ever since his wonderful run at aus open 2010 !!

now as far as Ivanovic is concerned, I'd buy anything  ... she is so pretty  :rofl_2:

 :rofl_2: :rofl_2: true dat !! :rofl_2:

I have to say, Cilic was oversold early, and I imagine people started dumping his stock some time ago or are just holding. I really didn't expect to see someone buy stock in Cilic now.

What makes you want to do that right now? What are you seeing that others are not?

Sell Georges, already! lol

Yeah I bought Cilic stock and it paid of big time in AO 2010 but he's been sliding since. I've been holding but actually I would buy right now. He's got the work ethic, he's got the height and the game, he's got the feet, it's only a matter of time.

I'd definitely sell Isner. I'm buying some more of Raonic, I expect a big move from him in the clay season and then the grass.

Is this buying and selling stock a season thing or a tourney related thing?  Considering current rankings, I would buy stock in both Serena and Venus.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Singles - Final

(2) Angelique Kerber (GER) d. (1) Caroline Wozniacki (DEN) 64 64 ! ANGELIQUE!





:yay:

IM RICH BIATCH




I first bought stock in Angelique on February 21, 2010 when she was ranked #85.

http://www.tennis4you.com/forum/index.php?topic=11132.320

To put that into perspective, that's like picking one of these unheralded youngsters

85   Tatishvili, Anna
88   Dulgheru, Alexandra

It's not that I'm Chris, picking a can't miss Boliterri giant. It's Babblelot picking a player based on her Babblegams  :drool:

You do?  To me, his game is definitely NOT suited for clay.  (I don't know about grass)...but clay?  I would sell him for 'clay'.

I'd also sell Soderling because I don't think he's going to come back any time soon.
