There's a saying in Florida that goes like this: Unless you're a corporate crook or a favorite insider--You have to work twice as hard to make a buck when the Republicans are in control of Government; BUT when the Democrats are in control, you have to work three times harder to keep it..
It's best to keep them off-balance by voting for a proper mixture.
You've got to be kidding!! What stimulus bills. That's not the problem NOW. The REPubisCoNS have been sitting on their collective asses for years...knowing full well that Wall Street's scheme-nanagans were going full blast. The Demoscumbagers didn't care either cause they were in it for the money--screw the public...
We need an INVESTMENT STIMULUS BILL that calls for 100 hours per year of ethics re-certification courses for ANAL-iSTS and BROKER-MANAGERS; mandantory jail sentences for brokerage-investment crimes; the removal of required Arbitration Clauses in broker-investor contracts; Total seperation of Analysts from brokerage houses--make them like Appraisers--liable for their opinions.....
Yes, and Republican tend to ENFORCE the laws already on the books, something that was not done during the last admin.
Leavitt was one of the largest contributors to the Clinton campaigns, and HE had to sign off on Arthur Andersen merging consulting with bookcooking.
This is an Irish company, and politics will draw an argument from everyone. If you want to discuss Irish politics it would make more sense.
like most of you, I'm looking for a chance to get some incredible upside.
Earlier this year I bot at $14 and sold at $10, and haven't looked to buy just yet.
I'm willing to wait until July 9th to hear their side of the story.
My question to longs who bought today, why exactly are you so sure this thing won't go bust ala WCOM?
Have I missed something?
The Republicans did not hold both bodies for eight years.
The government is not here to protect us from our own foolishness. The rich man taking advantage of the poor guy is ridiculous on its face and a very tired and old Democratic argument; WalMart didn't get to be the number one retailer by ripping off poor people.
Do your own investment diligence, and don't take tips from brokerage houses, and by all means, don't believe the stuff you've been posting.
Unlike WCOM, there is something to sell. There are Customers for ELAN product. They have several discent programs. There is even hope with the AD program. And now that everything and anything that can be rung out is rung, it's now time to add ELN to any agressive portfolio
"Have I missed something?"
Yes, you are missing everything. This is not WCOM. This scenario was driven only through fear. Check the 2001 Annual report they just issued on their website at www.elan.com and then check "Investor Relations" for the report on PDF format.
