New study shows lap band cost is 28K and does not reduce future medical costs after 6 years. Insurance Cos. will require use of diet drugs before surgery going forward.This is the life raft for B, as so few people will benefit from B, but why not try if Q fails?

=I don't see investors selling while Court is in session
twisty... the number one rule of investing is KNOWN NEWS DOES NOT MAKE FOR SUSTAINABLE GAINS WHEN IT IS ANNOUNCED OFFICIALLY! Is this the first stock you have ever owned? Don't you even look at any others?
A settlement and small payout is priced in. It can only go down as more time goes by with no word. I would have given it an 80% to 90% chance the judge approves the settlement. With the length of time that has gone by and the genuine concern the judge has expressed over the blatant self-dealing, I'm not so sure now. She seems like she may actually reject it as throwing the true class under the bus to enrich the attorneys and named Plaintiffs. The price is going to drift back down as the settlement looks less likely and the judge may order the Discovery process to continue to ascertain the damages and reach something more fair to the affected class.
Try this one, twisty... say the suit is settled tomorrow and then play out the what-ifs. Nothing has changed fundamentally. You are still left with a dark company that has a long history of self-dealing and misleading shareholders. They will never be worth anything in the US markets. I say they have no incentive to buy out what they already have taken. You think they will throw hundreds of millions of dollars out to US shareholders. Time will tell which one of us is right.
I assume that CJ is adding in the 2.1B Euros, or about $2.75B, and $6.38 (just checked yahoo) in current net cash which equals a total net-cash position of about $9.13B, a little less than CJ's claim of $9.2 cash. I just took CJ word (now there was a mistake, lol) that the figure of $9.2B in cash was correct, and then subtracted it from what I think is very close to $6B in debt....and got a net of $3.2B. However, having just checked yahoo, it turns out that ALU has $6.23 in debt, not $6B....
SO ALU'S ACTUAL NET CASH POSTION IS RIGHT AT $2.9B, NOT $3.2B AS CLAIMED BY CJ.....
....which makes my argument for that ALU will need more money even STRONGER...
....thanks for asking the question....
Well, it did run up to around 19 in March of 2011. There has been a great deal of selling by affiliated companies lately. What was your entry point? I came in way too high in the 14 - 18 range.
Asked Monday whether there was a price tag to see the president, White House press secretary Jay Carney said emphatically that there was not. But he wouldn't directly address reports that donors who give or raise $500,000 will be invited to quarterly meetings with Obama.

ADSK is junk. It is the most manipulated stock in the history of the world. This shows how stupid people have trusted their hard savings and 401k’s to crooks and thieves of Wall Street.

Supply of New Gold is Decreasing
The supply of gold has been decreasing for decades. It’s getting more and more difficult to get gold out of the dirt, quite frankly.
Because there’s less and less gold, mining for gold is becoming more expensive. The concept of “peak gold” is the most important concept a gold investor can understand: less and less gold is being produced every year. Here’s evidence, and here’s some more evidence. It’s unavoidable.
New sources of gold will become increasingly rare until there’s finally not any more left. What does this mean? It means the price of gold will be increasing much more than it is now — especially once investors realize we’re running out of gold.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
COIMBATORE, FEB 25:
Eastman Kodak Company seems to be making good progress towards emergence from Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
The company, according to its Managing Director for India and South East Asia, Oscar Planas, will emerge from Chapter 11 before the close of the current calendar year. “We are in the final stage of negotiating the sale of Kodak’s personalised imaging business. We will announce the buyer in the next couple of months,” he said describing the progress the company had made towards reorganisation goals in the last 12 months.
Planas was in the city to inaugurate Print Hub’s (Coimbatore-based print centre) new colour digital printing facility
“The management’s decision to sell its personalised imaging (PI) and document imaging (DI) businesses is more or less through. The PI business consists of retail systems solutions, paper and output systems and event imaging solutions. The DI business provides scanners, capture software and services to enterprise customers. We will now focus on commercial imaging, which will include digital printing, functional printing and packaging,” he said, adding that “packaging will be a big focus area for us. We will continue to focus on offset printing as well”.
To a query on performance, Planas said, “We are seeing double-digit growth,” but declined to quantify the growth.
