Went to home depot last night
(usually avoid it and go to Sears Hardware)
to buy something, at the check out line
(the only one with a human) it won't
ring up, not in the system, oh! So I can't
buy it! These guys have done everything
to make it the most unpleasant place to
shop. Surprisingly little selection,
long lines with bad check out system and
no one to help. Why to be the next
Channel Lumber or Rickels!!!
"The only thing that has kept the stock over 40 is the buyback which reduced shares available."
"I've heard brokers selling the dividend - unethical / illegal. It's being PUMPERED! What rhymes with PUMPERED?"
"I never had not will be holding that stock"
"Not holding overnight? Pumping after selling?"
Where are the numbers improving?
1B increase in inventory in mrq cannot be sustained by current assets. And it's a matter of who's selling and when they bought - common practice no matter where it happens.
$1 Billion kills EBITDA dead!
That would be a valid assumption, though not applicable to HD. The numbers continue to improve.
As far as the inside sales, a whole 148k is immaterial. I'd be more concerned if it were in the millions. These kinds of sales are very common in big corporations.
Thank you. You are entitled to your opinion, as I am entitled to mine. My point is, that as long as the numbers continue to improve, eventually the shareholders are rewarded by a higher share price. We'll see where the stock is twelve months from today. Take care and I hope you make a bundle on your investments.
FINE....let's see how the stock does from here...at some point the failure of the stock to move up will crunch every avg. annual return (or if it does rise help)....that's all I'm saying. Nobody is in this stock for 1.5% div....and all the numbers in the world are meaningless if you cannot sell higher than you bought (unless you shorted....)
<<<You were replyimg to my post, that the only reason the stock was above $40 was the buyback and that Nardelli had done a poor job...>>>
What is it with people like you. I was replying ONLY to that statement about the buyback being the only thing keeping this stock above 40. Go back and re-read my original post. I included that portion only. Period. That's it, end of story.
Then my last post was not even directed at you. I'm talking numbers, not Nardelli. I honestly do not care what you think of him. I'm not interested in that. I'm interested in the numbers, the company performance and how well my investment is doing. You can rant and rave all you want about Nardelli to anyone who wants to listen, I for one will not engage you in that conversation because it has little interest to me. Please, stop bantering me about it.
