    • no one here (or on the ust board) has mentioned that ust was up pretty good today and the volume more than DOUBLED.

      i'm beginning to think that a bid from rjr may be coming after all.

      i think i'm going to take the market price in the morning.

      if rjr does make a bid, does anyone believe that rjr as the acquirer has a chance of moving up?

      • couple of reasons for USTs move

        nasdaq going down today...although not the case in last 2 days and Mr. let me change the buyout target price again Feldman raising to $35.00...damn he's only $3.00 bucks away from issuing another press release....hehe

        I wouldnt place to much faith in the buyout...just people seeing a good value in a company combines with the uncertainty of the Daq...

        the courts ruling for cig. companies doesnt hurt either...

        and if rjr did do anything like that...again as I stated in a prior post...watch rjr tumble like the daq...

    • bullshit artist. He has zero
      credibility. Best to just ignore him like most of the real
      posters do. Engaging him in dialogue is a bigtime,
      long-run losing proposition.

      I guess every board
      has one.

    • It's nice that RJR is up from the $18 and $19
      level. At least that keeps me in the black for a while.
      However, there are a couple of things that will continue
      to push the price higher, including 1) a more
      favorable administration after the November elections. and
      2) (which is actually more important in the long
      run) that more and more people are getting tired of
      this "victim" mentality and they are supporting
      "individual" responsibility.

    • now promoting mo.

      he's using the excuse
      that he has to make money for his
      clients.


      a few months back he was putting on his "morality
      act".

      back then he said mo would go bankrupt. now he
      says
      the fla legislature (which he once covered as
      a
      reporter) is coming to the rescue. he's also
      saying that
      the ag's must protect their
      "winnings".

      all of these facts were known back when he said
      he
      wouldn't buy mo or tobacco stocks.

      he was
      simply unable to "analyze" correctly. that's
      what it
      boils down to. (either that or he was playing the

      p.c. game; take your pick)

        who was a strong advocate of name faking--until it
        was done to HIM, and then turned around and made
        dramatic and empassioned pleas against the evil practice,
        refers to someone else as being a bad

        Idiot, his motivation has always been to make money for
        his clients.

        <<a few months back he was

        Saying MO would go bankrupt is not a morality statement.
        Caramer is currently bullish, was previously bearish, and
        prior to that was bullish. In all THREE pahases he has
        considered MO to be immoral.

        No they were

        The Stupid Old Man takes an innocent
        situation--Cramer changed his mind after the legislture helped MO
        out--and makes it seem as if Cramer has done something
        disreputable.

        So typical of The Stupid Old Man.

        This is the RJR board, why talk about MO over here?
        Why not talk about MO on the MO board? Oh yeah, I
        forgot, you're too big of a coward to post on the MO
        board anymore.

        Yes, Cramer does have a big
        mouth, but guess what, SO DO YOU!

    • The line should instead read "on his or her head"

    • RJR may be beset by it current legal problems but
      it is still doing well enough to be paying its
      rather hefty dividend.

      If anyone wants the hair
      on their heads to turn snowy white prematurely then
      one should examine Borden Chemicals & Plastics, a
      master limited partnership. This is a company that
      should be doing well but isn't. For one thing one of the
      key raw materials it uses--natural gas-- has doubled
      since early 1999. Also, low interest rates have
      prevented this firm from raising prices of its primary
      products such as PVC resins, methanol and nitrogen-based
      fertilizers. Third, this company's various competitors have
      been--for various reasons--showing profits. BCU managed to
      barely eke out a penny worth of profits during past
      quarter after generating losses for two whole
      years.

      As for those investors who really enjoy taking risks
      BCU looks like a great thing to own. As for myself
      RJR, by comparison, is a more secure form of
      investment in spite of all the hoopla.

      • I think the main reason was the news of the
        Canadian proposed tobacco tax hike. You may want to check
        out the news on it, but as I recall Canada is
        considering a massive tobacco tax hike, seems like the
        equivalent of about ten U.S. bucks a carton. This is
        supposedly to deter smoking, etc., but as we all know it is
        yet another attempt to bleed their smoking citizens
        for cash, just like here in the U.S. The market, as
        usual, overreacted to this news. The overreaction is
        foolish, consider the small population of Canada, just how
        much loss of business would this truly mean??? I mean,
        first - the proposed hike may not happen at all (they
        did this before and got burned by black market
        sales), second - the tax goes through and most smokers
        will still buy the products even with added taxes,
        third - the tax goes through and smokers buy smokes
        through black market channels from the U.S. In all of
        these situations, the net result is zero impact on
        sales, since the same quantity and profit margin will
        remain. The only thing that would hurt would be for
        demand to decline. However, even with decline in demand,
        consider just how small the Canadian market really is,
        when compared to areas of the U.S.

        RJR's Stock Price
        by: hermcz2 5/9/00 11:30
        am
        Msg: 5056 of 5122
        Were down quite a bit today, but
        this would represent a compelling buying opportunity.
        The down-draft is being caused by opportunists taking
        advantage of the low trading volume-- caused by
        institutions staying on the sidelines--pending next week's
        FOMC Greenspan meeting.

        Low trading volume
        means that any small-timer like you or i can swing the
        stock price in any direction we
        desire--significantly.

        Furthermore the same folks messing with the stock price,
        could be the same ones sending out "Red Herrings" like
        RJR planning to buy NGH.

        Don't fall for any
        of this stuff. These are last minute, last ditch
        efforts to scare investors into selling their RJR stock,
        so they can get at that $3.10 dividend--on the
        cheap.

        The ex-div date is rapidly approaching (June 7).
        Watch them use any tool at their disposal to get people
        to sell. Don't fall for any of it.

    • The government, if they are going to tax the hell
      out of tobacco, should require large/fat/BBW (Big
      Beached Whale) women to have a warning label stamped
      on
      their ass and a tax on fat women implemented.
      Consider being on an airplane, seated between two fat
      women, and the plane rocks... ...you could be killed
      (or
      worse)... They require more national resources
      (food, water, clothing material, air), create road
      hazards due to weight damage to the asphalt, and God
      forbid
      going to bed with one (that is suicide). All this
      said, the govt. should require these cows to pay a
      special tax (to strictly discourage their use by minors).

    • Ah... We're back to 24. Now if only we can get to 25 to trigger those 30 options... God Bless America.
