Not sure yet but I imagine the discovery will lead to more understanding. Here is an article if It interests you - http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/lost-franklin-expedition-ship-found-in-the-arctic-1.2760311
What's your latest take on coffee/wheat or heck even SKUL seeing as we're on their board?!
Well maybe I misread it, kind of came across like you were claiming to have predicted the upgrade/move.
I certainly didn't mean to paint all participants with the same brush, just you and anyone else who choose to post empty, baseless comments. Unfortunately, nit wits here outnumber the decent participants by a long shot. If you haven't noticed/won't admit that then you belong in the former category, sorry. It doesn't matter what your name is, I dislike comments with no substance, analysis, logic or reasoning, your start to this thread being a great example. I welcome anyone who can contribute something worthwhile. I've been posting here for a while and I try to contribute. Carry on with your simple posts if you think they're worthwhile. It is, as you note, a free world.
What's his name
"There's the upgrade, nice move" Wow, some back patting there wasn't it lol? No offense taken buddy. I find the depiction of board participants as "nit wits' just as informative and telling as any other forethought and analysis you've offered in just this singular topic thread alone/as well.
Not sure why someone jumps to assumptions or conclusions the way you most erroneously have, but free world and all.... so job...done...I guess. Enjoy the ladies, use good judgement and make smart choices at the Mansion. Hay would you look at that, fingerprints on my back; maybe you were right. What's his name again? Keep up the...work lol!
No offence intended Seth. I find the one liners as useless coming from you as any other nit wit here. I despair at the lack of detail in anyone's posts and you are no different. I just thought I'd comment as it's a quiet day here at the Playboy Mansion and you patting yourself on the back this morning seemed a little over the top. If you thought there was an analyst upgrade coming, why didn't you post that? If you had then perhaps some credit would have been due.
Nice of you to criticise my sentence construction though. Keep up the good work.
Only one spamming is the one claiming and proliferating my association and highlighting or emphasizing my relevance. Much like anybody here, all I did was post a "simple post". Why am I any different than anybody else here, other than peaking your interest and evoking dedicated time to my subscription website and post here on Yahoo? See that, I didn't even have to mention CLAG, you did a good job of that for me. Thank you though for the recognition.
Just a word of warning for anyone who might not think this interesting development suddenly makes SKUL a worthwhile investment (in the future complete the sentence structure). If you really want to invest, then do so under the subjective understanding that you understand the nature of any investment. Or, you could wait and miss the move in either direction, like the example present in today's price action. Inaction is the sign of scorn and resentment, typical of many investors that have been once bitten and are twice shy lol. You could go short or go long, the choice is yours most obviously!
Follow analyst recommendations as you find them qualitative and quantitive and read their actual reports, not just the headlines. Unfortuanately, I would suppose that many don't purchase the analysts' reports. Not terribly expensive and I'm sure part of a well funded and dedicated due diligence approach. Or not! You could just listen to...what's this guy's name?
Maybe try to be a bit more vague next time Seth. Someone out there might be impressed at your clairvoyance, but to me, posting a one liner (8 words) like that just makes you look like a spammer. But then I see your employer/subscription website has just initiated coverage on SKUL. Wait a minute, that makes you look like a spammer too....
SKUL has had several upgrades (interesting developments?) this year, and so far it's SP is more or less where it started the year. Quickly looking, the last upgrade was on August 20th, which similarly caused a 5% rise (approx. $7.95 to $8.30). Look how long that lasted! 6 weeks later it was down c. 8/9%, before todays 'interesting development', to approx. $7.60. I expect the same will happen again after todays upgrade.
Just a word of warning for anyone who might think this 'interesting development' suddenly makes SKUL a worthwhile investment. If you really want to invest then wait until SKUL prove the turnaround is working, which will only be demonstrated by a big increase in the Chirstmas quarter/Q4 profit. Unless they actually prove they can increase profit growth significantly then I wouldn't risk my money here again.
Follow analyst recommendations at your peril. And be wary of one liners.
Can anyone explain? I'm questioning Yahoo data and looking at other stocks too. Has it updated to 6/30/14 quarter yet?
So you heard about Franklin's boat being discovered last week I take it? Only 11 metres under a chilly chilly sea I read.
Looks like WEAT is continuing to slide. With these being entirely new lows, is there any method to forecast where the slide might stop? Or will you wait for it to bounce, then retest that low before calling a bottom?
Glad to see JO bouncing today, I got back in at a shade above $34.
Oh for just one time I would take the Northwest Passage
To find the hand of Franklin reaching for the Beaufort Sea
Tracing one warm line through a land so wide and savage
And make a northwest passage to the sea
I agree. WEAT fell thru the ice alright. However, the December CBOT future doesn't look as bad. WEAT buys and sells contracts on the Chicago and Kansas City Board of Trades and the Minneapolis Grain Exchange as well as foreign markets.
Nevertheless, the grains have been in a downtrend, and even though it went into a trading range since July 11th, demand still needs to prove itself before it can be considered bullish.
WEAT has only been around since 2011 so these are new lows. Looking at the continuous for the CBOT though, it is parked right at a diagonal support line going back to early 2005. A linear regression line beginning in 2003 is sloping up and is now at about 800, or about 49.5% higher than the current price of 535.5. But I'm in no hurry, Waiting to see how it reacts this week off this support line.
Agreed long term any food is bullish, with climate change and over dependence on industrial agriculture which ain't sustainable at current levels, even with GM. I think coffee in particular given it's already difficult to grow at the best of times/places.
What do you make of today's drop in WEAT? Plunging through (what looked to me to be) short term resistance at12.5 on above average volume makes me think bearish. Looks to be continuing the now 4 month slide n'est pas? You think it's going to bounce tomorrow? Where would you be comfortable going long (if you're not already)?
RSG came up on my screener and has massive insider buying. SCCO looks good too. Natus is another I've been watching; ticker BABY.
Republic Services Inc. (NYSE: RSG) once again is a stand-out on the insider buying sheets. With five separate purchases this week, Cascade Investments, the private investment arm of billionaire Microsoft founder Bill Gates, continues to add to its massive stake in the waste collection company. Cascade bought a staggering total of 1,202,116 shares of stock this week, at prices that ranged from $39.29 to $39.50. The total cost for the trades was a jaw-dropping $47.4 million. Shares ended the week’s trading at $39.33.
Southern Copper Corp. (NYSE: SCCO) also had insider buying that could make Wall Street analysts sit up and take note. The mining leader has rallied this year, reversing some of the losses posted last year as spot prices declined. In what has to be viewed as a very bullish statement, the chairman of the board made three separate purchases this week that totaled 570,000 shares at prices that ranged from $31.36 to $32.87. The total purchase price for the three buys was a gigantic $18.5 million. This is extremely bullish for shareholders. The stock closed Friday at $32.81.
I guess in the very long term, food is very bullish. At current population growth rates there will be 9 billion people on the planet by 2050. We don't currently produce near enough food for that many people. We will need to produce as much food in the next 40 years as we have in all of the last 500 years. There are negligible additional lands available that can support agriculture. Soil and the availability of water are limiting factors.
Further use of GMO's is inevitable but soil health will become stressed; stressed to the point where the soil will actually produce less instead of more. The need for more and more food will make food availability and prices much more sensitive to weather variables.
Currently in the USA it takes 9 calories of petroleum to produce 1 calorie of food. Thus the definition of modern agriculture: The use of land to convert fossil fuels into food. The growing of corn and oil seeds to produce ethanol and biodiesel is a loser. It is questionable whether or not there is even the slightest gain in energy by this subsidized policy and eventually it won't be an option; every acre will need to be devoted to food production. There is no doubt in my mind that we have reached or are right at world-peak-oil simply because we're now going after the hard to get sources, like NG trapped in shale formations, dangerously-deep ocean reserves, and even tar sands. Sure, at the peak we still have 1/2 the fossil fuel remaining but we're now not able to exponentially increase fossil fuel production; we're on the downhill side of the bell curve and no matter how much technology we pour into its extraction, the production rate will relentlessly continue to fall....energy prices will rise......food prices will rise. And food prices will become more and more sensitive to the slightest of energy production disruptions.
The bottom line: starving people don't care about how music through headphones may increase their personal best on a stair stepper.
I don't care if they are a good company or not. They ARE however a good trade. I subscribe (free) to Kognosi Alerts. This is becoming a great short term trade. I have no connection to Kognosi Alerts but wanted to share another view of how to be profitable and in SKUL
Sentiment: Strong Buy
