Milking of shareholders continues.............lackluster, no explanation, disappointment............betrayal of Shareholder Loyalty............monetary Shareholder version of "Custer's Last Stand" and shareholders AIN'T the INDIAN's!
...AND...in fairness to FORD, maybe it has design to be classified as an income vehicle. Afterall, a annual .60 cent DIV combined with the special DIV in 2016 months ago, of .25 cents...that places the total 2016 return to investors above 6% AND...in a NOTHINGNESS Market where folks LOVE a mere 2-3%...FORD has SMOKED the competition.
So FORD even at today lackluster stock price, is a worthy asset to mutual funds and anyone wanting income compared to other choices in the market.
HOWEVER, for we FORD loyalists looking for GROWTH, FORD has failed us.
for everyone EXCEPT WE SHAREHOLDERS.
Hence, therefore, and so forth, I hereby label FORD an INCOME stock and remove the notion of GROWTH.
With a backdrop of NEW MODELS, record sales..repeatedly.....and constant news of FORD transitioning as well or usually, better than any of the other American Auto makers.....we see stagnation in the stock price, Better put, PURE OXIDATION.......................maybe the STOCK needs to adopt an aluminum body as well, in order to fight OXIDATION...and lighten up so IT CAN MOVE FASTER and FARTHER..............but hey............this stock has been a disappointment now for the last 4 years or so. It has entered the plateau of NOTHINGNESS ref. PERFORMANCE.
Oh I understand the numbers, dilution......etc.//// .....are you implying Mr Moynihan DID NOT UNDERSTAND the points you are making.........when he made those DIV increase promises that never came to be?
You have to understand that ALOT of PEOPLE, SHAREHOLDERS GOT HURT way back then......and frankly, the treatment of new shareholders has not been much better. Even a STALK of corn yields more than BAC stock!
BAC is a train wreck that keeps TAKING every opportunity it gets, to DISAPPOINT. It trades at HALF BV...............Leadership gets rewarded via pay raises and stock options.........I appreciate your defense of BAC, BAC needs all the help it can get, IMAGE WISE and PERFORMANCE WISE. At some point here REAL SOON, the QUESTION is going to be asked, is Moynihan the right guy? You already have my answer.
With this years spec DIV early on, combined with the .60 cents per year, F yield for 2016 exceeds 6% and even without the spec DIV, it yields 4.5% for today's newcomers. Trading in the low 13 range today, I think one can make the argument that F has a built in 15%- 20% possible stock price increase on top of the current DIV and if the past is any indicator at all of the future...then we can expect a DIV increase next year or perhaps another Spec Div in lieu of such.
For the first time in a few years, the prospect for F return to shareholders seems to be heading upward IMHO and we can thank the FED for forecasting it's own rate hold for the foreseeable future. All IMHO but even analysts are starting to pay attention to the auto industry which they have ignored for a few years now despite the BULL performance at the likes of F on what seems has been an almost quarterly, year over year improvement AND.................lower rates will bode well for both the Auto and Housing industry as Millennials get a second chance at locking in historically low rates. AGAIN...all IMHO..............
Um, take 'em and CRAM 'EM. First, even if I did want to learn what the "sponsored" as message was all about, I have to listen to some DOCTOR that loves hearing himself tak, for upwards of 10 minutes.....I really don;t know...I've never made it all the way through one of these voluntary exercises in HARRASSMENT ..!
Maybe YHOO should consider a subscription format. Don;t get me wrong, FREE is the way to go but I've had enough of the ADS CHOKING my NEW COMPUTER while trying to OPEN or POPULATE my page/screen.
CHARGE me and offer me ZERO AD HARRASSMENT................or, like AOL FINANCE whom I fired some 3-4 years ago I will walk! I hate it that much! There are other sources that are still avaliable and much less weighed down by UNWANTED ADS. TIRED of the YHOO " BS" FACTOR ........RULING EVERY SCROLL/SEARCH/or article speck I do on your eroding site.
Chicago should change it's name to "Libtard Killing Fields" where the good fellas still run the place and thugs do as they wish for tax free income while receiving their monthly entitlement check, food stamps, free cell phones, reduced or free housing, education, medical care etc.
over thin ice with absolute uncertainty. Lack of communications, lack of STOCK performance with a backdrop of RECORD company performance, and shareholders are still confined inside the FORD BUILT GULAG.
Now that FORD and the auto industry seem to be souring on the vine, one can only wonder just how bad it can get? FORD stock performance has been a MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT.....I mean a gross 6% dividend for 2016 does not neutralize the stock price drop............in fact Detroit in general has forced Auto Co Shareholders to wonder what happens with a slow down? Or a falling out with China..................or a WAR with China.
Today, "Fred Flinstone" would pass right buy a Ford dealership opting rather, for a foot driven cylinder wheeled ,canopied , hootch wagon , and Wilma wouldn't mind!
Agree, from JNJ to ZTS......VRX...and now being kept on by Ackman to advise his Family investments, few could tout a better list of Ref's...or industry experience. In fact the CEO of ZTS gave a plug to NVCR ref a "...friend who lived a longer life due to the NVCR device..".
Simply put, he brings a wealth of investment industry experience related to the BIO/MED sector....which seems VERY LACKING at NVCR to date ref. public releases on progress...and relations within the sector/industry.
However, the validation of NVCR has been highlighted by the Insurance Industry acceptance and subsequent coverage for customers which, again, says it all IMHO.
Doyle has been working w/for NVCR already anyways, and now, his load has been lightened up outside of NVCR, this is a good thing IMHO !
Brad Slingerlend..I believe of Janus comments on how FB growth is pretty much done! LMAO...FB is still deciding how it wants to shape and mold the ENTIRE LANDSCAPE.....much like Google and Apple! Including bumping foreheads with both!
Me thinks Mr Slingerlend hath tunnel vision regarding what FB has shown BEYOND social and if one were too do a forensic break down of FB's growth, one could easily argue that social was merely THE START but most likely, no where near the end.
Mr Slingerlend...there are SEVERAL MAJOR SECTOR evolutions occuring involving TECH......that comfortably fit into the game plane of ANYONE and everyone who wants to play the game...though the FB's/Googles, and AAPLs have a head start and that is mobility/content/entertainment/communications/VR/the Internet of everything........I mean we are LITERALLY at a cross roads being charted by the needs/wants/and demands/as well as expectations of BOTH BOOMER,s and MILLENNIAL's.
Premature PAT is the name YOU don't want to emulate, Mr Slingerlend!
Simply put...looking back, I can not recall a more uncertain and thus. more exciting time regarding TECH applications we can not even imagine right now. But, one thing is certain, there will be winners and there will be losers, right now, I thin CABLE is on the hot seat for change or entry into the Smithsonian as a memory.
VR will reformulate the landscape as we know it.......it will become an entertainment/communications/educational game changer. Growth? Hmmmmm...I'd say that FBs growth is limited only by itself and right now, I see no signs of becoming fat/dumb. and lazy at Google/Apple/ or FB! ALL IMHO and nothing more!
Guess we'll see if SHORTs are right or not!
Seems to me with a widening availability and Insurance Industry acceptance...we should perhaps expect to see progress in earnings and a brighter outlook.......or at least that would seem a reasonable expectation! IMHO.........
Time for some management team to fund a buyout of BAC......hold it for a few years...........breakout the pieces....like M.Lynch..............and sell the pieces which are worth FAR MORE than the whole today and multiples of such over the next few years.
Oh and send Moynihan packing with a bronze parachute rather than gold.
Shareholders can't even stand up straight anymore due to the BENDING OVER and GRABBING their ANKLES since the econ debacle approaching a DECADE ago .....NOW.................time wise.
BAC has earned the UNBELIEVABLE level of disappointment from Shareholders.................it seems BAC is working to earn a new stock symbol through it's deeds and lack of performance.perhaps "BOHICA" or, "BEND OVER, HERE IT COMES AGAIN".
Your posts are starting to sound like the same guy who was posting a few weeks back stating TTFs thus, NVCR , is a hoax. Same type language markers/mistakes in grammar/spelling. No one on this board can validate that you are legit. If you are, then apologies on all counts. There is no treatment that has the exact same outcome for everyone and I will take the scrutiny and vetting done by the Insurance Industry regarding NVCR before I trust your word. Sorry to cast a shadow of doubt but I don't believe you.
YHOO's finance user base has virtually no interest in the so called "SPONSORED" advertising pieces that literally COAT the daily list of news breaking articles ref finance/investment/stock/fed news etc.
So much a nuisance that I anticipate many who use the site will gladly opt for a competitor the moment an adequate one emerges.
Simply put, this user base on YHOO finance would likely VERY GLADLY pay an annual fee to become AD FREE so the information they seek or find and want to review isn't hijacked by ADS, more ADS, and even more ADS. Those who don;t want to pay the fee can still use YHOO Finance as it exists today, an AD SNIPING distraction that seemingly is getting even more layers of bogus, irrelevant advertising harassing folks who are using this site in many cases for over a decade, as a source for info. ref., the investment market place.
So I guess it is time for YHOO to decide if it wants to continue it's harassment of it's own user base or, allow oxygen to flow once again instead of advertisement overload.
Brain tumors/pancreatic cancer. Here's my take.....my CUTS-N-CURES take!
CUT...NVCR management as well as analysts should have been prepared..more imortantly, should have prepared shareholders for the COMMON drag time between treatments and payments from our wonderfully mismanaged MEDICARE. This itne alone explains the gap between expectations and receipts IMHO.
CURES.......1) geeez, there are not too many companys that show the very nice growth qtr over qtr NOR...the growth in number of patients.....% wise.
2) This TTF technology is a long ways away from any semblance of reaching what I would call critical mass regarding NUMBER of patients///more specifically, % of patients from a stat known population.
3) So far...phase 2 efforts appear to be getting good results thus, potentially expanding the number of med apps this process can be used tom replace or more likely, augment. At least from what I perceive the strengths of TTF's are for now.
4) This technology appears to be turning doubters into believers and the fact that so many INSURANCE CO's have accepted the treatment and have added it to their coverage is really all that needs to be said here! INS co's are widely known to resist any and all questionable or new meds/etc.
5) On a personal note, if you know anyone who has passed as a result of said brain tumors this treatment is aimed at, or how about pancreatic cancer ? I mean this is a life extender and I suspect over time, with fine tuning and improved methods, this could change the situation of alot of ailing folks by extending or perhaps even curing whatever illness ails them by allowing more time for more and various co-treatments..... .
IMHO, this is exciting. As some on TV say, "do your own homework" .....and all of the above is purely NO MORE than my opinion.
6) Hats off too you NVCR...DRIVE ON SOLDIERDOGs (!)....I wish you had been around a couple decades back.
Does anyone know if the FDIC or any other US GOV entity guarantee accounts at a UBS bank in Singapore?
I assume they don't so I have to ask since we see the IRS pursuing it's foreign earned income witch hunt against individuals if this means by default the the FDIC and other US GIV entities have agreed to guarantee those accounts?
One more question, why do Corporations get to shelter BILLIONS in overseas banks with no IRS witch hunt...and individuals can't ?
I understand going after the bad guys but when the IRS lumps in all and anyone with an overseas account, it's SHOTGUN approach to enforcement has destroyed moire than a few americans in the process. Any and all US Servicemen/women who are stationed overseas, and NOW, APPARENTLY, have the misfortune of meeting, falling in love with, and marrying a foreign born become criminals the day that foreign born's Parent's pass away and LEAVE ANYTHING! It's outrageous.
This is a foreign relations nightmare.....it totally ignores the sovereignty of our Friends around the world AND...it complicates matters for the UNKNOWING I mentioned above who have NO CLUE the IRS has CHANGED THE LAW and is conducting a WITCH HUNT of epic proportion............Oh and the IRS is in the process of GIVING BACK assets/$ TAKEN from AMERICANS who were accused of structuring bank cash deposits for doing so in amounts lower than 10k as though it was on purpose not to arouse IRS attention and the INNOCENT BIZ folks who deal largely in cash can't help it and many have even stated that their BANKER TOLD THEM TO KEEP THE DEPOSITS LOWER THAN 10K or they, the bank has to file a report. This SMOOTHERING of the INNOCENT is intolerable. I have to ask, is it worth HURTING the INNOCENT in the HUNT for druglords etc. ? The MAJORITY of ACCOUNTS TAKEN by the IRS were less than about 35k. Those INNOCENT were forced to take it to coiurt or be willing to settle for a partial return under the agreement that it goes no further. Wow, talk about strongarm
...................crickets................can't find one................crickets
The recovery STARTED 8 YEARS AGO immediately after the bust........................................and BAC has been a CONSTANT disappointment.............is it a LEADERSHIP issue? I think so..................E FF ing SHAREHOLDERS begets loyalty erosion.and that is where Mr Moynihan has PARKED BAC train.
Note, HUGE difference between getting a so called "cut" and merely being invested. If memory serves, the other Duke research going on right now involves the use of the Polio virus to treat solid brain tumors as well and I read where the staff at Duke involved in the research is also invested in the research.
Also of note, more for arays....suggest not bad talking NVCRs application for it has already shown it's efficacy and thus it's approved us. Clearly it does not serve all patients HOWEVER , it has helped many and we wouldn't want to wrongly send people away for no treatment at all , of any kind. Further, the polio virus treatment has proven about a 50/50 effectiveness which while really good in my view, also proves it does not help everyone, for any number of reasons. Tumor/disease progress being IMHO, probably the single strongest factor involved but hey, what do I know, I am no Doctor!
Finally, back to "getting a cut" is illegal, as in kickback. However being INVESTED in the procedure is quite different, I would LIKE ALL DOCTORS to have an interest in the OUTCOME of my treatments! Talk about MOTIVATION / reward! As I see it, other than reputation and steering clear of lawsuits....I sometimes find a Doctor almost burned out with dis-interest and would prefer a MOTIVATED...Dr and if having a financial interest in the OUTCOME of a new medical treatment exists, then I say RIGHT ON! You might say IN A PERFECT WORLD that the Doctor's have a vested interest in seeing such new treatment succeed, exceed, and proceed further via the FDA....! All IMHO !
increased functionality, the AAPL watch will likewise, gain!
It has already out produced other AAPL products at 1 years time..........and anyone discounting AAPL pay, tv...and auto applications is merely a TRADER, not an INVESTOR! IMHO !
