First it's the Green Rate which means all is well, then it can go to the Yellow Rate which means your still a lucky fellow, and the Red Rate is what we have to pay the Chinese on the trillions of dollars of Treasury Notes and Treasury Bonds they own.
I know it's a summary but it's pretty complicated. But go ahead and ask me anything.
"If you have shares that cost $2.00, maybe less, selling them at $4.90 is not a loss, but a gain."
Very crisp logic khemp. Quite an improvement over your usual stuff, even though it's obvious. Keep up the good work.
But let's try a test, if you were holding FTR at $16 a share and now it's $5 a share is that funny or not?
sage tells us:\
"There are several components that make up the trust.."
Nobody cares about your personal stuff. We are all anonymous here guy.
We know you made the trust stuff up. You did so to try and puff yourself up and divert attention from the fact that your FTR buy & DRIP has been an obvious mistake. Of course your changing the story -- when you make stuff up you forget what you said in the past.
Post about the stock.
"Poor Sage.... Probably at the bottom of an Old Crow bottle today."
Wait a minute, there's a silver lining. Ole FTR DRIP's in a couple days so he gets more shares.
Because sage has his own way of calculating his return -- he doesn't look at total market value -- if he gets more shares than last time that's what counts.....never mind.
"..........Thanks for the "senior discount"............ It's like at Albertsons' on the first Wed of the month...........LOL"
Yo hrdwkgdog -- better check FTR's expiration date -- it's 2006.
Nah, your wishful thinking. FTR is down close to 9% in two days -- a year's dividend.
T & VZ do not behave like FTR at all.
Open your eyes.
A continuation of day 1 after Brexit. VZ and T are holding up like good defensive stocks should.
"To you, little now2000p, it's Herr Doktor, something you'll never obtain in your lifetime. "
Heal thyself "Doktor". Looks like you need some brain work.
herr khemprof1a announces to the world:
"Both stocks (FTR/VZ) dropped at closing, so it wasn't due to a flight to quality, as that is subjective and opinions are like noses, just a general volatility throughout the market."
You are chock full of dog poop old man. While VZ went down .44% -- FTR went down 4.51% so compared to VZ little FTR went down by over 10 times more than Big Red.
You must be a fan of the late herr Goebbels. Although he was good at propaganda -- your stuff is silly.
"nice try shorty"
yep, Frontier had very few problems with the conversion. The survey that rated FTR last of all US telecoms in customer service was probably the work of shorts as well.
I think posters who liken FTR's junk credit rating to it's customer service rating go too far. The proper term for FTR's customer service isn't "junk" it is simply "last".
Hey -- in about 105 days FTR shareholders of record collect another $.105 cash.
If FTR is at or above $4.83 in 106 days you've banked another 2.17% return on your money - $.105/$4.83.
What could go wrong?
owens you're my hero.
You felt some FTR pain but at some point a few years ago I believe you saw the light.
I believe for a while way back you ran with the FTR pack with sage.
Then you denounced Maggie and overcame denial. I saw it with my own eyes.
kudos to you for having fought the good fight here helping others.
May you be at one with the lords of money...
Get em while they are low, before the run up to the fall dividend.
Avoid the run up at the end of the month when the shares sage owns DRIP -- it's 25% of volume.
Thanks for the info gfconroy.. Sorry to hear you've had problems. I hope you have a thick skin. Be forewarned you are subject to a certain element here who defend FTR like pit bulls. Be on the lookout for their leader "sage". They call sage ,"Maggie's Boy" and he's easy to spot at about 5'2", 280 lbs with a high pitched soprano lisp. His small band of merry men insist FTR's conversion problems are minor, just a bump in the road to long term critical mass. Ignore them.
