(BEE: N/A +0%) Strategic Hotels & Resorts

My near-term target is close to $4 but I already held to $3 once and then watched it tank. “Keep it together, keep it together”. The plan, for now, is to stick to the plan.

It’s up on a lot of positive news, namely certain hedge funds are buying in plus recent hotel sales that should help their cashflow. Fundamentally speaking, they have a lot of debt but also own high value properties like the Ritz hotels. Bill Gates reportedly purchased 5.6% of active stake at around $8/share.

Needs to close above $2.00 and then $2.29 is the next level to watch for, but it wasn’t tested much and in this market it can just go ahead and pierce above.

It’s at $2.10 at the time of writing (not reflected in the chart yet). I’m going to hold onto it as I like the intraday volume pattern so far.
