I went back and checked, and the only time i bought Google in the last year (besides yesterday before the close) was on 7/26/17. I quickly checked and i couldn't tell if that was pre-earnings release, but i think it was. Not sure if that was a positive pop or not, and it doesn't really matter, becuase i bought it for $945 and you now what it is now.
As Bob Dylan would say "I can't help it if I'm lucky" (from the song 'Idiot Wind').
But thank you for your interest. In regards to the buying i have been doing before the earnings announcement, i believe that was the other FANG stocks, and my belief is that goes for recent buys of Netflix, Facebook, and Apple. As i said, they all worked in my favor except the most recent buy of Netflix. And I am confident that it will be a good long term investment even if it is temporarily down.
And as for your rude comment about falsifying my buy disclosures, it is duly noted that it is your character that is diminished, not mine. I'm perfectly frank about my good trades and my bad.
