I've been lurking for a while since I got out in the summer but.....
I got back in this morning at 1435. A might on the high side, but the chart action is starting to look better. A strong earnings report could propell a breakout from the recent trading range and give us a nice 150-200 point move (I hope).
There is supposed to be a return of cash to the U.S. that is currently held in other country. This is because of the Income Repatriation Act. Before the tax, the income would have been taxed twice, once in the foreign country and then again in the U.S.
Don't have a clue how much cash is involved, but from reading the 10Q-s, it sounds like it is significant. Of course this has already been posted as income in prior quarters, but it will have an effect on the Balance Sheet.
Welcome back, AA: I have been busy lobbing shots at the people from PETA, you folks might be interested in what they have come up with. What I have found is a strong Hindu influence, but without the peace. Also found some real attack dog websites that go after PETA.

They are actively working to destroy family relationships by passing out comic books in schools: asmallvictory.net/archives/005548.html
PETA's statement's about pork slaughtering are way overblown, but I have not been able to find much to refute it.
If anybody has any links to prove that the Humane Slaughter Act has improved conditions, I would appreciatte it. If you are reaaaaaly bored, read the MCD message board for the last week. If you post anything, do not mention with board. I mentioned the W e n d y's board one day and the attack dogs were on it in minutes.
