Wow, you're still here. And still inventing accounts so that you can have a "conversation".
To misuse a quote...all that US Pipe stuff is "Settled Law". You lost. Mueller is not US Pipe. Mueller is not obligate to commit suicide for you because of old obligations that were properly discharged.
If you had a case...a shyster lawyer would be all over it...but you don't...and they are not.
There does come a point where you must move on with your life. Step into the Medicare world with everybody else. If you are not really "that" old, the Obamacare line forms over there.
My 100 shares of CCL that I purchased for the On Board Credit (OBC) have given me a very steady dividend and a rather respectable Capital Gain.
To steal a subject line from another poster "Party on the Lido Deck".
Picking a Target Price for 31 December...I'm expecting a $58-60 per share. Roughly an 18% gain plus the quarterly thirty cents a share divvies.
What's not to like?
And that is pretty much my only complaint about Carnival...Smoking. It kept me out of their casino and away from their nighttime disco club. I disliked the fact that they permitted smoking on one side...stank the high heaven.
A Cigar Night would drive me away from that area...then again, I'm not the big money they are trying to attract.
sometimes, all you really can afford is a look and a few reminisces...
At least he had good manners to bring sufficient beer.
Got a phone call from my Toyota dealer concerning this very issue. While we were talking, I scheduled my 125K checkup for my 2010 RAV4. Very happy with the car, the dealership, and the company as a whole.
My next car will probably be another Toyota once my Bride's '05 Sienna (185K miles) passes from the scene.
Nothing major on either of them beyond the routine maintenance one expects. Did go through two water pumps on the van and experienced a catastrophic serpentine fail that required a tow...but I chalk that one up to my not heeding advice to get it done earlier.
wow...thank you for using the correct "you're"! Kind of rare in this day and age...
As a major investment? Probably good to go...Under $50 is a steal. The divvie is decent, prospects are good...yeah, hold on.
And as a bonus, 100 shares gets you an "On Board Credit" of $100 !!!
That stuff adds up if you cruise a couple of times....
I agree, go take a cruise!
One cautionary statement...if the world is truly coming to an end, do you want to be caught on a cruise line at sea when the Zombie Apocalypse explodes? Read the book "World War Z" ...a ship at sea might not be where you want to be.
How's that $33 call working out for you???
I'm seeing $36+ today! Seeing $40's in the new year...maybe high 40's buy year's end. No crystal ball, just a guess based on volume of online sales that PYPL gets a cut of.
I don't see much derogatory in the comments section but a pretty consistent 9-10 thumbs-down.
I've been looking at OLLI but do not have the free cash to leave alone long enough to see the growth that is possible across the next few years. Maybe options for the Fall? Not sure. Anyone want to make a reasoned argument for a specific price and timeline?
Yeppers.....and always when you least expected it.
that's actually kind of funny...I'll give you a thumbs up for that!
Interesting history lesson. Tracks awfully close to GM and Delphi. Once Delphi got spun off, they were 100% on their own, even though the pensions were underfunded. The GM bankruptcy killed all manner of lower tier support companies but only GM direct employees were protected. Everyone else got to go plead their case to the Pension Guarantee Board. Everybody lost and were reduce anywhere from 25-60%. Legal? Sadly, yes. Ethical? Stickier wicket there. Delphi was rather foolish to step off without fully funded pensions. GM retains zero obligation to the Delphi employees...that's standard Business Law.
It's a loooong way to the water and it will hurt when you get there. Recalling many an "Abandon Ship" drills from back in the day. Long way to fall...and then add in the speed of the ship. Just too many variables trying to kill you.
