also receive an additional $660 in December, plus
a special dividend of
$1.50 per share.See the
Reitmans post. It is true that the company has not
declared the dividend however, the special must be paid
and has been promised.We should help to inform you,
not send you off.
I hope the light you are seeing is not, indeed, a
fast moving train. Your information is more optimistic
than mine, and I would be interested in where you are
gathering it from. If you are willing to share, please send
an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks in advance.
I have not read Prechter 1996 book. Dow under 100
obviously predicts the end of a lot.
FYI, back in
1992 some clown, I mean stockbroker( I was one I
know), faxed me a chart for Henry Dent's book back then.
In it was a the best chart prediction I've even
seen. We all laughed at it for it predicted the Dow
adjusted for inflation to go up 3-5 fold from then.
It was a chart of number of people between the age
46-49. Over it was laid the Dow, adjusted for inflation,
it match it surprizing well all the way back to the
Since we know how many 46-49 year old will roughly be
around in 50 years you could possibile guess where the
Dow will be. To save you the time, the graphed line
peaks within a few years and plummets to approx.
early-mid 1990's kind of levels, then rebounds back to the
levels reached NOW in 2030-2040.
I have found
this corresponds with another interesting long term
theory of A.(?) Shaw from Salomon Smith Barney. He says
if you over lay the Japanese Nikki 15+ year bull
market over the Dow, from it's start(?), it matches it
exactly, selloffs and everything. His work has our market
peaking in 2002.
Fun to think about anyway, not
sure if I would place money that way. Needless to say
we could be within a few years of probably wishing
we not heard the words "stock market".
Wish I could elaborate but at this point in time
I can't. My comments are based on deductive logic
based on certain information (fill in the puzzle piece
type stuff). So its part info and part hunch.
Admittedly this is a fluid situation and with PZN there is
no such thing as a "sure thing" but I feel confident
about the SI. Of course the terms of such a deal are
the key element in this process. As far as occupancy
I agree with you - steady improvement but nothing
I know he got the initial runup correct. It was after that that I am remembering. Dow below 100 sounds like the end of the world as we know it. Any time predictions on this occurence?
Thanks for the info. I would be interested to
know why you think the SI is going to get done and the
terms will be more favorable to pzn than most
Everything I hear is that after prospective SIs talk with
Doc they back out. Everyone wants pzn to go back to a
Also do you have any news on
occupancy. I hear slight improvement but nothing
Any more info would be appreciated.
