  • The new yahoo finance charts do not work. The technical analysis is NOT RESPONDING. The basic charts with technical analysis, which worked quite well are no longer accessible.

    WHO ARE THESE INCOMPETENTS that make modifications final without first testing them? SUCH IDIOTS should be sent to the EU (perhaps they are from the EU).

    Perhaps it's time to leave Yahoo Finance (and the stock of course). Certainly, when it comes to technical analysis, the failure of Yahoo finance is complete.

    hang on.

  • And we have not seen much yet. For FutureFuel should be expected to follow the recent SHARP RISES in REGI and SZYM, ite biofuels peers.

    Meanwhile, while we wait for the expected M&A activity in this industry to rise, we can collect the nice DIVIDENDS paid by FutureFuel.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    The exclusive contract with Arysta provides very little for the bottom line since FutureFuel is only reimburesed for its cost. In fact, "Arysta LifeScience North America Corporation supplies most of the key raw materials for production of the proprietary herbicide. There is no pricing mechanism or specific protection against cost changes for raw materials that FutureFuel Chemical Company is responsible for purchasing,"

    Arysta must be very happy with this contract, and it is unlikely that Arysta will be able to obtain a better deal anywhere else.

    MADRID May 15 (Reuters) - Santander has been authorised to buy 20 percent of Bank of Beijing Consumer Finance Company for 306 million yuan ($49.81 million) via a capital increase, becoming the unit's second biggest shareholder, the Spanish bank said on Wednesday."

    It's a nice "foot in the door' that should facilitate a furtherr entry into the China banking market. It is certainly good to see that SAN continues to expand globally.

    And meanwhile, we, the FF shareholders are fortunate to receive the NICE DIVIDEND RATE of 3.2%.

    It's inevitable

  • REGI and SZYM have risen 60% and 30% respectively in the last 3 months whereas FutureFuel barely reached the break-even point.

    In other words, FutureFuel's stock price is well UNDERVALUED in spite of the outstanding performance and its impressive CASH balance. That cannot last long. So look for FutureFuel to catch up with the rise.in the stock of its peers.

    "a FAVORABLE decision by the DE Supreme Court is very likely"

    Currently, the price of SIGA reflects the most negative court decision possible. So if the court decides for SIGA, the combination of the ongoing shipments of Arrestvyr (ST-246) and a favorable decision should open the floodgates of BUYING ORDERS.

    Again, the reasons for the HIGH LIKELIHOOD of a favorable DE Supreme Court decision are
    :
    1. No detrimental relance by PIP was possible because the negotiations' outcome could not be known in advance (negotiations ended in an impasse).. So no resonable person could rely on the unknown outcome.
    2. Tthe doctrine of promissory estoppel requires detrimental reliance on the promise by the injured party .
    3. PIP should have waited, as a reasonable and prudent person would have done, for the few weeks duration of the negotiations. There was no implied or express reason for PIP to act urgently (except perhaps to fool the courts into using the promissory estoppel).
    4. A grave adverse effect on future negotiations ( a public policy issue) since IF the DE Supreme Court affirms the lower court's decision, it would mean that an agreement to negotiate determines the outcome of the negotiations (which would be outright ludicrous).

    "IF the DE Supreme Court affirms the lower court's decision, it would mean that an agreement to negotiate determines the outcome of the negotiations (which would be outright ludicrous). "

    Such a BINDING DECISION by the DE Supreme Court will affect all DE corporations, which are spread throughout the 50 states. In other words, it will affect INTERSTATE COMMERCE. Consequently, SIGA will likely appeal, if such a strange decision actually takes place, to the US Supreme Court. And given the ramifications of such a decision, the USSC will likely agree to take the case.

    Naturally, the hypothetical event of a ridiculous decision by the DE Supreme Court will probably never happen. The fact that the DE Supreme Court will decide this case EN BANC (all judges of the court present) ensures that the DECISION WILL BE REASONABLE. This bodes very well for SIGA.

    27% Unemployment in Spain!??

    by stanleysharpe326 May 1, 2013 9:22 AM
    ice_hawk_7 ice_hawk_7 May 3, 2013 6:09 PM Flag

    From the viewpoint of the current shareholders of SAN, the 27% unemployment in Spain IS HIGHLY LIKELY TO IMPROVE and decline to about 20% by the yearend. For it is much easier to reduce a 27% unemployment rate than a 8% rate.

    Since most of the unemployed are young people, who are usually more mobile than older people with families, there is a good probability that some will begin to move to other countries in the EU (E.G., Germany, Sweden, etc.) where the economies are expected to recover but need new workers to do so robustly.

    In fact, conspiracy theories in the EU claim that the high unemployment in Spain is intended to create population movement towards industrial centers in northern Europe to avoid importations of Turkish, Arab, or African laborers. Naturally, such theories may be far fetched but they are probably based on some real underlying conditions in northern Europe's labor markets.

    As for SAN shareholders, we can wait for improvements in Spain's unemployment while collecting the SUBSTATIAL DIVIDENDS that SAN pays.

  • The occurence of such negotiations have been rumored, hinted, and proposed. Si if they are real, the likely reason is ACQUISITION TALKS.

  • ice_hawk_7 ice_hawk_7 May 1, 2013 8:42 AM Flag

    Very few acquisitions have been that predictable.

    As for the reason, here is a plausible one. AAPL will leverage YHOO's patent wealth against GOOG's Motorola's patents in order to obtain cross licensing.

    Also, AAPL may be planning a YHOO-based internet-access device (mini-tablet?) and acquiring YHOO would prevent future competition.

    $50B is clearly better than $40B but the current market cap is only $27B.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • ice_hawk_7 ice_hawk_7 May 1, 2013 8:30 AM Flag

    AAPL is not going to say that the money from the bond issue will be used for ACQUISITIONS.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Although AAPL has $145 Billion in CASH, it is still going ahead with its $17 Billion bond issue (STRANGE!).

    The only reasonable explanation is that AAPL intends to ACQUIRE a company like YHOO but it does not want to bring any of its overseas CASH to the states for TAX reasons.

    In order to acquire YHOO, AAPL will have to pay a premium of about 50%, or about $36/share, which will make the ACQUISITION price approximately $40 Billion.

    Posters on this board have used several sources to report that AAPL and YHOO ARE TALKING.

    The deal is not CAST IN STONE yet but the PROBABILITY of AAPL ACQUIRING YHOO is VERY HIGH.

    " look for the DE Supreme Court to decide in favor of SIGA."

    The lower court acknowledged that SIGA only promised to negotiate in good faith for a license agreement with PIP and that the license agreement was never reached because the negotiations ended in an impasse. Still, the lower court treated SIGA's promise to negotiate as if it was a promise to give PIP the license agreement.

    But that was just a lower court decision and it is not binding for any future case. However, a decision by the DE Supreme Court sets a precedent and it is binding for ALL future cases with similar circumstances. Now, imagine the effect that aa DESC decision that is similar to the lower court's would have on corporations in America. NO ONE WILL BE WILLING TO AGREE TO NEGOTIATE IF THAT COULD BE TREATED BY THE COURTS AS A PROMISE FOR A SPECIFIC OUTCOME.

    The result of such a decision would undoubtedly be an outright mess. That's why Supreme Courts must consider the PUBLIC POLICIES that might stem from their decisions because they are often legal precedents.

    " look for the DE Supreme Court to decide in favor of SIGA."

    For if the supreme court rules in favor of PIP, it would be a strong deviation from the current applications of the doctrine of promissory estoppel. However, since there is absolutely no reason to modify the doctrine of promissory estoppel, which has worked well for many decades, the DE Supreme Court will likely decide for SIGA.

    In addition, a decision affirming the lower court's ruling would in all likelihood hamper future negotiations since a promise to negotiate would then have to be viewed as if the outcome is promised because the DE Supreme Court decisions set presedents and are binding.

    "There is just no way by which the DE Supreme Court could affirm such ONE-SIDED and UNJUST ENRICHMENT, which would be in violation of what the courts have ruled over several centuries."

    The DE Supreme Court will likely reverse the decision of the lower court because that decision contradicts several precedents.

    That's why the DE Supreme Court will judge the SIGA case EN BANC (i.e., with all of the DE Supreme Court Justices present) instead of the usual panel of three justices.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
