Too big to fail, but most likely will eventually fall like a brick, back up the truck, load up and wait to double again. It’s nice being a shareholder, employee, not so much.
More than doubled my 401k since 2016, not gonna be too greedy this time around. Why take the chance to lose half to gain a fourth. Will sit on sidelines till it falls by a half in then doubles again, if I live long enough.
Ride it out short term if you are young and could afford a serious downturn, stock will probably go up more in the short term the way they are propping up the price, but as we all can see they are devastating the business long term, be careful.
short term, follow closely, due diligence, and it will eventually crash, I got scared and sold mine, 3 bagger, bought at $67, i may miss some more gains, but I am to old to chance riding another downturn.
Wow it is truly amazing that it keeps going up with less business every day.while most business that expand stock gos up UPj just keeps getting smaller and yet the stock gos up WOW
Buffet knew enough about investing to stay away from UP.
Buffet and Gates know nothing about investments. It’s all going to come crashing down on them. UP stock will come crashing down at the next split. It’ll be split #4 for me. So you wise guys crying about your next layoff will wish you had invested more wisely.
I wouldn’t take investment advice from anyone on here much less someone pushing UP stock lmao.
Then you all better sell now, the inflation is pushing this stock. If you think this is gonna last...LMAO for all you wanna be investors. The stock is over priced this is gonna drop like a wrecking ball, just sit back and watch. Free advice from a Wall Street bum!
So, what’s the point of the post? You put your money in UP and roll on. Everyone else that wants a ROI in the future go with the S&P 500 index.
Well my $36k investment in ‘98 is now worth over $1.5M. And not once did I care about the S&P index. Just saying.
“Who cares about the S&P 500 index? “. You mean, the standard? Spoken like a Madison University graduate.
No they aren’t, the increase is being driven by the company buying its own stock back and they are taking on more debt to buy that stock back. Long term that debt could cripple the company especially if they can’t keep customers to pay it back. I’ve seen a few articles saying to dump the stock and any other railroad stock (now is it wise probably not if you have a bunch of it and you want to take the risk to gain a big reward). Not many people are able to buy into the stock at 185 dollars because they don’t have that much cash laying around. Railroad stock in previous years was known as a slow growing stock that was pretty much guaranteed to give you a return even if it was a small gain.
Who cares about the S&P? UNP is keeping up with the other roads and it’s real dollars. They’re doing great. October 2016 they were at $92/share. They’ve doubled the value in less than 3 1/2 years. $720k times 2= who cares about the S&P.
A lot of stocks are up. UP is not an outlier
Past six months it’s been below the average of the S&P 500 index. Employees jumping ship. Rated worst company in America. Customers leaving. Freight shipments decreasing. ROLL ON!!!!!!
