These unions are composed of lazy-as* morons who really are just welfare cases in disguise (want freebies, entitlements, and cushy jobs where they can be lazy all day). Look at Greece, look at Sweden... socialism just doesn't work. Unions are socialist enterprises... want ridiculous hourly wages, cadillac healthcare plans and cushy pensions... and the ability to goof off all day. Ever see these city or state construction employees.... 10 guys watching one guy work.
I used to consult some unions in their marketing materials, to my eternal regret. The guys running these outfits are by and large, just criminals in disguise representing welfare cases indisguise. Truly disgusting. Give me a Wall Street banker any day instead of these really dumb, useless unions.
Did he throw like a girl? Okay for a girl to throw like a girl, but I notice that liberal, socialist weenies all throw like girls, too.
If you need a great example of what unions can do... just look at Greece. The place is completely bankrupt thanks to the fact that 1/3 of the populace works for the government in one way or another, and their government union salaries, perks, benefits, have completely bankrupted the entire country which now needs a bailout.
Then there's France... strikes every five minutes... another weenie "we're all helpless and need to be supported" type country.
Abolish the unions, and make everyone stand on their own two feet instead of holding hands with their lazy-butt "brothers and sisters"... jeez. I mean, have you every seen a smart government worker? All unionized.
These blood-sucking lazy-as* union workers who think they are entitled to high wages, premier health benefits, lots of room to slack off during the day, and require 5 guys to do the job of one competent worker, ought to be sent to the gulags.
Unions were perhaps necessary in the 1930's, but they are so last century it's pathetic. Whatever happened to self-reliant Americans? Unions bankrupted GM, and now we all have to bail out GM and Chrysler, all because empty-suit, liberal socialist, effete, weenie Obama craves the union vote. Remember all this in the next elections - both congressional and presidential. Get rid of all these union-oriented dems with their "they're all helpless, hopeless dweebs who need to be supported by taxpayers" mentality.
Amercia. It's time to get some stones again. Jeez. Pretty soon we all be living in one big glorified San Franciso nanny state.
but this airhead liberal community organizer who thinks he's Hugo Chavez is really getting tiring and boring. I mean how many lies does he think he can pedal and have any credibility left? Can't wait for November elections, and then only two L-O-N-G years after that until we get somebody in the oval office who can actually do something besides using a teleprompter.
All these turkeys (Obama, Pelosi, Reed, etc,) follow Karl Marx's communist doctrine which goes to the effect of, "To each according to their needs, from each according to their ability to pay". In other words, I work my butt off to do well in life, but then the socialists want to take my hard-earned money and give it to the low-lifes. These guys should all move to France or Bongo Bongo. They are not true Americans.
Omigod... he's actually on TV right now. AGAIN. This is one desperate man... he knows the writing is on the wall and the dems will lose seats and he will only be a one-term pres. THANK GAWD! The founding fathers are turning in their graves.
Has this man got any sense of how over exposure turns people off? Jeez, even the most spacy, airhead actor knows that over exposure can kill your popularity. Now when I see Obamarama on TV I just yawn and turn the channel. B-O-R-I-N-G. Jeez, three more years of this twit.
I like HBAN over the long and intermediate term, but you don't buck the overall market's trend unless you're an idiot. This is a train to jump on when the market picks up, which could be next week or next month... or? They seem to be making some good moves lately.
You sure as hell don't make more than me. I've been trading for years, and make my living from it, plus have built up significant reserves... so try to get your little peabrain to exercise more control over your mouth... :)
Nah, he's too arrogant and ignorant to know when he's not wanted. Three more L-O-N-G years. At least we'll get rid of a lot wimpie dems this year, so all is not bleak.
Yeah, sure. And if it goes under $2 I buy more. Obviously, you don't know your history. Chysler was down to $2 a few decades ago after the government bailout at that time... As it eventually climbed up, it made millionaires out of quite a few people. C is another chance to make your bundle, but you are obviously to stupid to realize it. Jeez... the dumbing down of America really is progressing.
That's more than 3X what they invested in coke, dude! Wake up. They don't buy a stock all in one whack. They phase in over time. Are you new to trading?
Sorry about the added posts, but just can't help it, because this AZO "story" is so bizarre. Over at Seeking Alpha some nut has written an article in response to Herb Green's article about AZO's folly. The writer states that the EPS is all that counts for investors. So AZO's buybacks are what cause the EPS to supposedly hang in, and the writer of the article thinks thats cool and is working as a model. Have we all gone nuts? I mean that's supposed to be a business model??? Buy back your stock to prop up EPS, have debt approaching $3 BLN, liabilities greater than assets, negative free cash flow, and a book value of MINUS $9. Jeez! They will discussing this turkey company in business schools in the future and howling with glee over the "business model" it had. What a freakin' joke. It truly is a mad, mad, mad, mad world.
Now I'm really confused... Here's what VectorVest, which as of end-of-day today, Feb 9, says about AZO: "AZO has a current Value of $290.23 per share. Therefore, it is undervalued compared to its Price of $159.12 per share."
VectorVest goes on to rate it a Buy. I just don't get it. See my original post in this thread where I'm wondering if I'm seeing things because according to Yahoo Finance, the book value is something like MINUS $9.00. Compare that to where the stock is currently priced! C'mon! Can anyone show or tell me where I'm off regarding this stock?
P.S. If you know how to read charts, you can see quiet, continuous accumulation by the big boys occuring in this stock. If you can't figure that out, what the h*ll are you doing trading in the first place?
