    The voices in my head......

    Doubling down at $3.60 wasn't s a mistake . As you're making money so far . I don't do my own taxes . But selling your original investment at a loss for taxes reasons , I've heard of that before.

    According to yahoo the TTM earnings was -$3.14 , this years estimated at - $1.64 , and next years is estimated at -0.30 . So to me , it looks to be coming back in time .Maybe by 2018 we will be back in the green . CLMT looks like it may be high risk . But at this price it's under book . I just hope the new CEO can turn things around again .

    Well best of luck to you .

    PS : I have made money trading AAL in the passed .That's the only stock I've every bought to sell . You may want to look that one over if you're a trader . Now I only have a few shares left . So I'll just keep them . Years ago , I saw the airline stocks below $5. per share . They didn't have a dividend . so I didn't buy them . Then later I kicked myself in the #$%$ when I saw how much they gained . Then the next time I've seen them down below $5. I was a buyer and made some money trading a few times .

    Well best of luck to you .

    I've also had CLMT for years now . My higher price was @ $27.90 . I'm not a trader , just an investor . I only buy stocks for their dividends and or distributions . However , I added another 90 shares at $4.50 per share , I'm hoping that they return the dividend by 2018 , Also , hoping to see the stock price going back up while I'm waiting . I've recently bought GSK , CSX and PFE . Therefore , I didn't have as much cash as I thought . Or I would have bought more here .

    Yahoo shows book just over $6.

    Well best of luck to you .

    Well according to yahoo CLMT shows TTM earnings at -$3.14 , this years estimated at - $1.64 , and next years is estimated at -0.30 . So to me , it looks to be coming back in time . Then on the other hand , I bought IEP @ $102.70 a share because I was looking at yahoo's estimated earnings . Those estimated earnings where changed shortly after I bought IEP . Now IEP is about $57. per share , but still paying a $6.00 dividend . I was going to use Google rather than Yahoo . But I didn't want them to have my phone number .

    I recently bought GSK , CSX and PFE . Therefore , I didn't have as much money as I thought . However, I was able to add another 90 shares of CLMT anyway .

    Well thanks and best of luck to you .

  • I'm about 85% in the hole on my investment with CLMT . They have stopped the distribution . But

    I'm thinking about buying more here . I do my own investing so I'm not taking to a broker . My shrink is out of town . That means I'm on my own here . However, to my way of thinking this stock should have been doing great while the oil was low . But , that didn't happen . Now, I'm thinking when / or if they return our distributions this stock will jump . The question is will they return our distributions ? Also , when ? Then on the other hand , is CLMT just history at this point ? The voices in my head say , at this price it's not much of a risk anyway .

    PE way too High for FIZZ

    As you stated , "you have seen this story before ." So have I . I just copied and pasted to point out a few things .

    What differentiates this commodity?.....A great taste that the people like.

    A well designed bottle? .... That's just part of good salesmanship .

    It matters not how they got the people to try this drink . But the fact that the people tried it and liked it enough to continue drinking it . Hopefully , they will offer their guest one and the growth continues .

    The fact FIZZ found a good drink and could get the consumers to try it ......... I'm in FIZZ @ $13.92 a share and not willing to sell it all now . I think it's a hold and see if the growth continues . I'm betting it will , as this Company is making money.

    Well best of luck to you .

    I've sold some of my FIZZ because I wanted more timely dividends . However, it was all profit that I took off the table. I hope it turns out I did the right thing . Then on the other hand , I now have both the timely dividends and FIZZ too .But someday I may just wish I've kept all of my FIZZ .

    Generally a high P/E ratio means that investors are anticipating higher growth in the future. The average market P/E ratio is 20-25 times earnings. The P/E ratio can use estimated earnings to get the forward looking P/E ratio. Companies that are losing money do not have a P/E ratio.

    FIZZ The beverage manufacturer and marketer is attracting significant investor interest due to a growth rate that's far in excess of the global non-alcoholic beverage industry. The industry is currently projected to expand at a rate of just 4% in 2016. In the first nine months of National Beverage's current fiscal year, the company increased revenue at a pace of 9.2%. During its most recently reported quarter, revenue rose by 13.1%, a sign that growth is accelerating....

    ...Behind National Beverage's powerful stock rise may be a sense among investors that it's plumbed the right market at the right time. The market for flavored water is expanding at a pace you usually only see in a subsector of the technology industry. According to Chicago-based research firm Mintel, the sparkling/mineral/seltzer water segment is expected to grow cumulatively by 75% between now and 2020...

    Well best of luck to you .

  • Is this the bottom for ALDW ?

    No , I didn't buy anymore . But I haven't sold any either . Just looks like this may be the bottom to me . I sure hope so anyway .

  • I thought GSK would have jumped on this news .But going down now

    11:43 am GlaxoSmithKline: European Commission approves GSK's Strimvelis (GSK) :

    •Co announces that the European Commission has approved Strimvelis, the first ex-vivo stem cell gene therapy to treat patients with a very rare disease called ADA-SCID.
    •Strimvelis is the first corrective gene therapy for children to be awarded regulatory approval anywhere in the world.
    •It is indicated for the treatment of patients with ADA-SCID for whom no suitable human leukocyte antigen matched related stem cell donor is available.



    Adenosine deaminase (ADA) deficiency is an inherited disorder that damages the immune system and causes severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID). People with SCID lack virtually all immune protection from bacteria, viruses, and fungi. They are prone to repeated and persistent infections that can be very serious or life-threatening. These infections are often caused by "opportunistic" organisms that ordinarily do not cause illness in people with a normal immune system.

    The main symptoms of ADA deficiency are pneumonia, chronic diarrhea, and widespread skin rashes. Affected children also grow much more slowly than healthy children and some have developmental delay.

    Most individuals with ADA deficiency are diagnosed with SCID in the first 6 months of life. Without treatment, these babies usually do not survive past age 2. In about 10 percent to 15 percent of cases, onset of immune deficiency is delayed to between 6 and 24 months of age (delayed onset) or even until adulthood (late onset). Immune deficiency in these later-onset cases tends to be less severe, causing primarily recurrent upper respiratory and ear infections. Over time, affected individuals may develop chronic lung damage, malnutrition, and other health problems.

  • •GSK lung drug succeeds in big UK study, after earlier miss
    NASDAQMon, May 23, 2016

    LONDON, May 24 (Reuters) - GlaxoSmithKline's new inhaled medicine Breo proved significantly better than standard care in a large British study that tested it in everyday use, providing a fillip for the product after the failure of another big trial in 2015.

    GSK said on Tuesday that the study, which tested Breo in day-to-day practice across the town of Salford, showed it was superior in reducing attacks of serious breathing difficulties in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

    There was a statistically significant reduction of 8.4 percent in the rate of moderate or severe exacerbations compared with those receiving usual care, the study found.

    The success comes after another more traditional clinical trial in September found Breo failed to prolong life in COPD patients.

    Britain's largest drugmaker is relying on Breo, which was approved in 2013, to help defend its respiratory drug business as its older blockbuster Advair faces generic competition. U.S. drugmaker Innoviva is GSK's partner for Breo.

    Thinking about buying GEO or CXW?

    I remember thinking the same thing not to long ago . As for myself , I just bought some of each . However, I bought at a higher price . But hell , I'm still happy . With so many family and friends living in these places .Then getting out only to return again and again . Well , why should I bet against them . This way crime pays them or it pays me . Either way, crime has been putting money in my families pocket for sometime now .

    Now on the other hand , GEO has a better return . So if I was to pick just one it would be GEO .

    Also, check out FUN and it's dividend history . T , VZ ,GM and F looks OK , but with a lower returns for your investment .

    Well best of luck to you .

    Sentiment: Buy
