  • Bernie Sanders is introducing legislation in September to end private ownership of prisons. Any concern about this? Can this legislation pass? I would hope not.

  • CT. kills the death penalty. Now prisoners will require more incarceration as Connecticut mothballs it's Old Sparky electric chair. Now occupancy rates at CT prisons will be a smidgeon higher and that has positive kinetic energy for GEO dividends. Does that make sense?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Heard this is going to breakout big! Add it to your watchlist and be sure to thank me :)

  • Why is GEO down so sharply today?

    10 to 28 years in solitary confinement ?

    by wareham2620 Aug 4, 2015 12:20 PM

    Obama is for more lenient prisons sentences . But prison isn't being kept in a cage .Prison is more like a college campus . Confinement is a cage , and for years at a time . I couldn't do that to anyone .

    I'm also a shareholder and mainly concerned with capital appreciation and the dividend income. However, I also know many of the guards belong in prison full time , as inmates . Many inmates are there for drugs and some still sell drugs in prison . How do most of the drugs get in there ? That's right , the guards .

    Yes , many of the inmates belong in prison . But who belongs in confinement for 28 years . Also , they're placed in confinement for years without a real court of law . The Judge gives them years in prison , not confinement. Then the prison puts them in confinement for years . If those inmates were in general population , we would still get our dividends .

    I'm not saying we don't need prisons . I'm saying holding people in a cage , confinement , for 28 years is wrong .

    Google

    Lowell correctional institution, person put herself into protective custody from guards found dead.

    Or

    Lowell correctional institution, 'Daddy,' womanizing assistant warden, fired from troubled prison .

    Or

    Female Inmates in Prison Say Guards Forced Them Into Prostitution .

    Or

    Guards bet on fights they set up with the inmates .

    Both male and female prisoners are placed in confinement for false reasons . Officers often write false disciplinary reports . Why ? Because then can and they like the power . Also, if a guard bring in drugs to be sold by an inmate , then another inmate has drugs brought in by a visit . Well the guard locks up the competition . If the guards want sex or a fight to bet on . The inmate complies or end up in confinement with the lost of gain time .

    You've got the wrong forum to advocate for more lenient punishment in prisons. You might want to petition your legislators and politicians. We shareholders are mainly concerned with capital appreciation and dividend income. We want long term growth. We do care abou tbottom line. We've had some setbacks of late, but longer term the business of incarcerating people should be good. No, we don't want to "hang 'em high." If we "hang 'em high," they'll be dead and will not need a room at the prison. We want full occupancy in our prisons. Grub should be tasty and nutritious, but not so great that it will cut into our bottom line too much.

  • The USA accounts for 25% of all prisoners in the world... or at least those that are reported... Barry and his minions will be shot down... have already been by several courts... prison populations are going up and will continue to go up no matter what any libtard professors say... There are simply a lot of very disturbed people in this country and we closed a ton of loony bins... so where do we put the crazies? In prison where they belong. Soon to be joined by Barry & his faithful dog Eric...

    Hang em high...

  • Dr. Haney, a professor of psychology at the University of California, Santa Cruz, interviewed 56 prisoners who had spent 10 to 28 years in solitary confinement in Pelican Bay’s security housing unit ......

    Can we as stockholders end this type of cruel and usual punishment ?

    No human or animal should be held in a cage year after year .

  • Dividends are paid out of more debt, comparing to same quarter of 2014 - net income is down 15~18% (including Australia's project). I really don't see how GEO could sustain 0.62$ dividends going forward without borrowing more and more... At these earnings it was trading in 31-36 range in 2014, with rising operating costs, and Fed raising rates later in the Fall - fair GEO price should be in 28.47$ to 33$ range

    Sentiment: Sell

  • I think that fear factor may already be in the stock price here . Either way , I'm happy with the present dividend and I'm in now .

    In Florida if you buy $10 or $20 worth of cocaine or a rock you're only a user . But they can put you in prison for 5 to 15 years .Depending if they want to charge you with possession , a 3rd degree felony punishable up to 5 years . Or purchasing , a 2nd degree felony punishable up to 15 years .

    GEO also has drug programs .I think the Judges will sentence the users to programs instead of the longer prison sentences . Drug use is growing and the programs are a big business too .

    Also , Obama opened the Mexican boarder . That will lead to more sex offenders than ever in the US.

    MARRIAGE IN MEXICO

    Consent: People under the age of 18 may not get married in Mexico without parental consent. With parental consent, boys have to be at least 16 and girls need to be at least 14 years of age.

    However , Age of sexual consent in Mexico is 12!

    In recent months, there seems to have been an explosion of reported child sexual assaults committed by Mexican nationals, in this country illegally.
    Examiner
    The most troubling and telling reason behind the growing epidemic of child molestation at the hands of illegal aliens, may lie in the fact the age of sexual consent throughout the majority of Mexico is 12 years of age.

    Article 261 of Mexico's Federal Criminal Code states: ”Whoever, without the purpose of reaching copulation, performs a sexual act on a person under 12 or on a person that has no capacity of understanding the meaning of the act or that for any reason cannot resist, or demands that the act is performed, will be punished with a term of 2 to 5 years in prison.”

    In addition to Mexico City, the age of consent is 12 in the following Mexican state..........

    Anyway , the Mexicans sexual habits won't change over night . Then our prisons will full up with sexual offenders . They can't help the way the were raised and we can't help but to love our children . I really don't like to see anyone in prison . But it is what it is .

  • I am expecting a bill that will lower length of sentences which will end the
    20-30 year prison terms for drugs and other crimes that do not involve
    weapons. This will end the prison crowding that has helped the private prisons.

    When that bill is introduced and the Speaker of the House said today he
    supports such a bill, these share could shed 10% on the fear factor. I
    would sell shares at this level and wait for the dust to clear.

  • Well I'm into GEO , 136 shares @ $36.73 and also CXW , 145 shares @ $34.40 . I know people think Obama changing laws and letting some prisoners go free may hurt these stocks . But Obama also opened the boarder and

  • Well , the bottom is anyone's guess . So my guess is about $32 .00 . However, I'm in GEO when my check clears at TD Ameritrade . But I just placed it in the mail box tonight . Looks like it will be a nice return on my investment . Also , away to get some of my canteen money back .

    There are many dividend paying stocks out there . If you're looking for stocks that increased their dividends and paying out 5% or more . Here are a few to do some homework on . AROW , if you count the 2% stock split every year with their cash dividend , it pays over 5% with increased dividends . Also , SO , T , FUN , BP, all paying out over 5% with increased dividends . SPH pays well , but without the increased dividends . ARLP is a coal stock with increased dividends . They can't do away with coal over night . ARLP is at a low now and paying over 10% . Can't hurt to do some homework on it . Oh yes , KMI is paying just under 5% now .But KMI expects 10% annual growth in dividend 2015-2020 with significant excess coverage .

    As for myself , I've just added SO to my Portfolio . As always , I'm looking to add dividend paying stocks to my watch list , until I can get some more cash in my account . Anyone have any dividend stocks to add ?

    Well , best of luck to all .

  • Looks like going to break at $36.99 with a short term target of $44.05. The buy rating at 9trading set to 6.

    Hows come?

    You are so right! Good luck on your investing.

  • Now beginning to look as if GEO will test the 29-30 range. If it does in a big market sell-off, the 50% retracement from the five-year high will have been attained. Some of the technical analysts support the 50% concept. Even so, it sure looks like trolling for stripers or bottom fishing to me at these levels.

  • Everyone on these boards is an expert? Yet no one has that much money. I wish I knew as much as my ego says I know. A famous quote from a former secretary of defense: "....and then there are the unknown unknowns." For $200. and the win who said it?
