  • PBY trading at 15.03 and 15.05 was high of the day.
    Seems stupid to buy at more than 15.00 cause that is all Bridgestone will be paying you to buy your shares in the mandatory conversion.

    But..... shareholders of PBY have not always been too well blessed with brains.
    Just sayin.

  • I don't want to get cancer over this screw up with LL buying defective flooring from China that doesn't care who they kill?
    I'm interested in a class action lawsuit.
    What law firms are willing to take up the cause?

    LL leadership should be burned at the stake. IMHO

  • Now that is a company.
    Up more than twice the shareprice of puny little Pepboys.
    Serious questions arise about just how good is Pepboys in the auto part business.

    If you hold PBY stock, you are a fool.
    A fool, fool , fool.

  • He's losing money in this climate?

    Gee - ORLY and AZO make money; read this as lots of money.
    PBY has been around since the depression when cheap repairs and do it yourself was the theme.

    Here it is 2013 or 2014 and PBY can't seem to figure out to ingnite a definite interest in drivers concern for the care of their car. Both DIY and letting PBY do it for them.

    Could it bee that PBY labor rates are over a $100 per hour?
    Could it bee that the labor mix leans strongly toward Mexican, which scares us white women tremendously?
    Could it be that the wrong people are in management - specifically those who have not been in the car repair buisiness ever in their life?

    Pitty the poor shareholder. Management screws them over royally.

    This is a POS stock and you will be burned......

    That fudge sundae fellow would say that the lack of real fudge on-board made her go crazy and take a flying leap over the railing.

  • It's disappointing the daily changes foisted upon the user community by Yahoo.
    Today cannot attach anything to a yahoo email under composition.
    Whole formatting toolbar appears un reachable [but you can see it]

    Yahoo product support says things like:
    We are sorry you don’t like the new position of the formatting toolbar, but we don’t have plans to move the formatting toolbar from its current position at the bottom of compose.

    #1 - you should not be in any position that doesn't let you sleep at night
    #2 - look at the charts yourself and do your own technical analysis
    #3 - before getting into any position you should have your exit strategy written down on paper [then follow it]

    I got sucking into choosing one of the pretty pictured THEMES.
    Boy was that a mistake.
    Just looking a the list of msgs in the inbox is a devel to read. It apparently changes the font and increases the bolding so its not easy at all to read just the headlings of the messages.
    So I changes back to the "solid pale blue" them and its not colorfull at all but very much more legible.
    Just to change themes took a pass thru the help file.
    Hover over the little square box on left side of the screen when viewing list of messages.
    Row of themes appears, then arrow over to right big arrow and scroll until see pale blue box with blue triangle in left corner. Click on it. Then when the message comes up to hit escape or put pointer over its message, do so. Not clear at all that you have "saved" that theme, but apparently you have.

    Yahoo designers need a good slap to the head for such non understandable human interface.
    Anyone else share that opinion?

    Not even 12 bucks anymore.
    PBY and JCP must be lovers, banging away day after day....... getting nowhere.
    And the idiots holding the stock are the biggest dufusses around.

    Well, it looks like if you had held on until Friday and just sold on the open market you would come out better than going thru the hoops of accepting their tender offer.

    Note that there is little to no news items on this stock on Yahoo.
    Overall, a good stock to get out of.

    Let the Dutch choke on their coffee.

    Mario usually doesn't know S**t from Shinola.
    Ask him how his Kerr Glass investment went? [he lost it all...]

  • Yep, its potential MALWARE to be loaded onto your PC if you visit it.
    Suggest others flag this turkey for Yahoo to boot him off and remove his message.

  • There is so much concern here that desserts be made properly on these cruises.
    Yet so much apparent disappointment.

    It is far better to trust a realiable source of proper American desserts and dine at Dennys.
    Their menus do not lie.
    They post very nice pictures of those sundaes, and the ones presented are exactly like the picture shows.

    All you silly cruisers are making such a mistake not just sticking to a proper food perveyor.

    See todays WSJ front page photo.
    The KMPG partner/employee taking an envelope of 100s for his inside tips about the innards of the firms KPMG provides accounting/auditing services for.
    Pepsico's inside financial data may well be for sale right now by the KPMG auditor in place currently.
    I'm sending a strong message to management on my annual meeting ballot today that I suredon't want this auditor. There are others around, find em and sign em up.
    No faith in KMPG after that photo in the Journal today.

  • This stock is in such terrible shape.
    Can it be that the company is in equally bad shape?

    Why can't they make a go of it after years and years and years?

    The market is at its peak today and this sad puppy is ebbing down down down.

    There is no value here.

  • Watching CNBC you find out the better truth.
    Caller from the ship says the elevators don't work, but the wall plugs near the elevators do, and the passengers are working in shifts with power strips to recharge their cell phones [and maybe digital cameras].
    Yes, inconvenient but not the end of the world.
    Showed picture of the red "bio" bags they were issued.
    Plenty of room to do your business in.
    Also he stated, the tow line did not break [as currently being reported on the media]; rather they just stopped towing to wait for the tide to come in so they can proceed up the Mobil channel without getting stuck.

    Moral to whole story: tune into CNBC for the real truth.

  • Pepboys business model is broken/questionable.

    There have been too many idiots in charge past and present.

    If every employee above a mechanic dropped dead today, nobody would bother topick up the pieces.

    And those mechanics would not get a paycheck.

    Even the mechanics may need to be roughed up some to get them to be more productive.

    This firm may have been in its hayday during the depression, but it is not longer and the depression is too far ago to be revelavant.

    If these Greeks are taking all their money out of their Greek banks, they should be converting those Euros into something stable, like the American dollar.

    The euro seems to be going down in value now too.

    If only these Greeks had kept their own house in better economic order, they wouldn't be facing the end of their own little special world.

    Well - here it is Monday another business day -- hope their banks are braced for another billion euro withdrawal.

    Would have run his boat directly up on the rocks, and then ask the rest of the cruise industry to pay for the damage to both rocks and boat.

    Our Italian captain just ran away and left the passengers to fend for themselves.

    ...soo much difference in cultures

  • And it must be true that this company is folding.
    Just look at that stock price.
    It just doesn't move even a dime.

    PBY stock isn't much better than a Greek bond.
