The Fed is concerned that a number of businesses now have the enough demand to raise prices.
Coke does not seem to be one of these businesses. Twenty years ago, the two liter bottle would would sometimes go on sale for 99 cents. Each quarter, it takes a lower price to interest the consumer, until recently it has been seen on sale for 59 cents.
Where is the pricing power?
Few can mix fact and opinion like the Duck these days and manage to go off the deep end so consistently. You would think by his persistence that these thoughts had never been uttered before by others. Moreover you would think no country or government had ever confronted such problems and survived.
Hope all had a Happy Easter.
REGARDING: The fed has already signaled it's intention to raise interest rates.
RESPONSE: How very naive. LOL
Can you extrapolate how much more rates will be raised?
Do you comprehend that rates may descend once the apogee has been made, depending upon eoconomic conditions?
REGARDING: Buffet is no dummy
RESPONSE: Hmmmmmmmm... What does that mean?
Of course, Buffett is no dummy.
Why didn't he direct the sale, years ago?
REGARDING: Neither is Spitzer
RESPONSE: In other words, you have nothing to offer.
While it is not my intent to inhibit anyone, you could have short-cutted by not saying anything lacking any incremental benefit of information.
REGARDING: So let's see ... IF the fraud of the 1990s is not exposed (it is being exposed as we speak),
RESPONSE: It is being exposed as we speak???
Please offer what you know. I am in the dark.
REGARDING: ...and if interest rates don't rise (the fed is on schedule to bump them by 25 BPs every five weeks), then you see a bottom at 38?
RESPONSE: I don't think I suggested that the bottom should be $38.00, if interest rates don't rise.
You are correct if you include the adverb, "substantially", which, substantially, changes the meaning.
A substantial increase from current levels would be about 150 basis points, perhaps a bit less (tight call would be anything in excess of 100 basis points).
REGARDING: What will the price be once Spitzer starts his investigation,
RESPONSE: I thought you said "it" was being exposed as we "speak". Please clarify your, apparent, confusion.
REGARDING: Buffet dumps his shares,
RESPONSE: Bershire will not dump its KO shares. It may 'place' the shares, but it will not dump them.
REGARDING: ...and the fed raises interest rates to double digits?
RESPONSE: Obviously, if rates rise to double-digits, they will have exceeded the parameter I have suggested.
RE:"What will the price be once Spitzer starts his investigation, Buffet dumps his shares, and the fed raises interest rates to double digits?
Sorry to interject but...What evidence do you have that any of those are going to happen?
So let's see ... IF the fraud of the 1990s is not exposed (it is being exposed as we speak), and if interest rates don't rise (the fed is on schedule to bump them by 25 BPs every five weeks), then you see a bottom at 38? What will the price be once Spitzer starts his investigation, Buffet dumps his shares, and the fed raises interest rates to double digits?
i was kinda kidding..teasing you...i appreciate you input...confirms my sanity...or possible sanity....some are way out on one limb..others out on another...digest all the insight...and conclude something...NO one is right ALL the time..100%...,.except perhaps for michael smoky who i think may be God
QWAK,Bear,FEAR NOT, as fear is mostly a lack of UNDERSTANDING,and as for ME,you should REALY fear the ones who wish to CONTROL YOU! I would just like you to SEE and concider the POSIBILITIES and decide for YOUR SELF as EACH should do, because THAT is what FREE WILL and CHOICE is realy about and I would NOT take THAT away from any body!
Our government wishes to control virtualy EVERY aspect of our lives, YET when they DO, even for the ones like CHILD MOLESTORS and others who have done GREAT WRONGS they (the government) consistently FAILS MISRABLY!
YOU make YOUR own choices my friend and I mearly try to SHINE a LIGHT on the pit falls and DANGERS I see and percieve.
RE: with the caveat being that interest rates don't rise, substantially, from current levels.
>> you're not that dumb...int rates up 1/4 every time...a 1/2 might be interesting......
>> one other point..i think...unlike japan...he could now rev course and go down from here...IF and or when he deems it necessary or he so desires
