To me, we should be $5 because the whole British exit deal would have zero impact on anything TIS does. That said, we'll probably drop $3 today for no real reason.
Read the 8k report and found the whole CEO departure incident pretty amusing. Now DeVito made $2.5 mllion as a CEO of a family owned business and was #$%$ off at the family. I'm suspecting the board got a little sick of the whining and decided to go with a former military WestPoint grad who also went to Harvard Business. Give me a break. The company decided to go with a much more qualified guy versus waiting for DeVito to make a grand exit at age 70.
The new CEO is a graduate of West Point and Harvard Business School. I don't know him from Adam but there aren't a lot of insurance company executives with that background.
Also, this Arshad Zaharias has been buying stock like crazy and he's no dummy.
My guess is that DeVito was a capable manager but probably not as skilled as he thought he was. He was overpaid at $2.3 million.
The company will survive without him.
This is not an X Rated board and any reference to Debbie Wassermen will result in loss of posting privileges. I think Bernie objected to her not as a socialist but as a normal human being.
$18 in 3 months?.....try 3 weeks.
Kinda wished I hadn't sold my Smuckers stock a couple of weeks ago. When they announced their price cuts in coffee, it didn't really bode well. In reality and in hindsight, they must have known they were having banner results and could afford a price reduction in order to maintain market share.
Thanks........nice to know there is a logical explanation versus a feeble attempt to manipulate the stock price.
I don't know what is dumber.....selling a single share pre-market in order to show a lower price or buying that share or maybe making a comment about it.
You have to wonder why someone would write a so-called scientific article and not use their own name. No one can check the credentials of an unknown party. I do know that there is a short squeeze going on and the market makers are actively on the hunt for shares to borrow. I really love how on the comment board a trained physicist who owns no shares of WATT is reading Seeking Alpha stories on obscure companies.
It seems to me that the ClubCorp courses are far better than the Trump courses and there are ten times more ClubCorp courses as well. Still, Trump values his courses as more than ClubCorp. While Trump probably overvalues his courses, the market is undervaluing ClubCorp courses.
Mercury General is really to be complimented for their Ride Hailing Coverage offering. Coverage is needed and they are offering it at a very reasonable cost. The local government boards who are controlled by the taxi companies will have to come up with a new reason to ban Uber
Apparently even the geniuses on Wall St have figured out that you still need toilet paper even if oil prices are down and even if the Fed raises rates by 1/4 point.
I have traded in and out of this stock for a couple of years in order to catch the dividend. At this point, it seems like a high risk investment and I'm avoiding.
Netflix still makes a good profit from their DVD rentals but how much longer that can last is anyone's guess. At some point, people will trade down to the streaming only option and there goes 30% of Netflix profits........not that they really have any profits.
Every stock I own has been killed this earnings season. Very nice to see a very solid report with no shortfall due to the strong dollar. I suppose that the geniuses on Wall St will pick apart the earnings as being good but because there was no currency issues, the earnings should have been even better.
Given that their content is really stale and most people stay with Netflix simply out of inertia, a simple cyber attack ala Home Depot or TJX would be devastating to Netflix. The only thing of value is their customer list and if 60 million credit card users are compromised, I just don't see them rebuilding their subscriber count.
I sold my MELA stock a few years ago at a big loss........still, the FDA stance on Melafind never made sense. The device was designed as a tool for general practitioners to use in the course of annual physicals. It wasn't infallible but thousands of patients would have been referred to dermatologists and it would have been a great preventative tool. So the FDA gives approval but puts so many restrictions on it to render it useless.
Obviously, Cal-Maine is benefiting from bird flu but shouldn't Kellogs go up as well..........I ain't paying $4 bucks for a dozen eggs and might switch back to cereal.
I've read studies that put clean up costs for off shore spills at $5000 per barrel. Even if the costs were a hundred times greater, it could be only $25 million in costs..........the biggest problem would be the government extracting money in fines and unnecessary new regulations.
