Strain on the budget my ass!!! Social Security has been the golden goose for this country and still is today while it generates hugh surpluses only to be robbed by the politicians to spend in the general fund. Now we are to be made to feel guilty by you SOBs when we cash our SS checks after paying into it for 50 years. I say eliminate all those fat pension plans that federal workers have along with the f------- politicians fat retirement plans that dwarf those that SS recipients get and put them all into the SS system where they belong and the SS problems will be solved in a hurry.
Is anyone else experiencing slow responses with yahoo's website? I'm getting long delays when I move into my portfolios and when I'm moving within them as well. I would appreciate some replies either way. Thanks!
About 2 months ago I asked for opinions if ACG was a buy at the $7.60 level. The responses were quite negative at the time. Let me ask again. Is ACG a buy now as it approaches the $8 level? It still trades at about a 2% discount to NAV; It is earning its 7.5% dividend; and the Fed is probably done raising interest rates. Would appreciate some pros and cons!
What are they doing?
They are living the good life and they aren't doing anything for CMGI. They come in to work when they feel like it. They go out for expensive lunches. They head for the golf course or their favorite hangout. They will keep that schedule as long as there money in the bank to cover their big paychecks and expenses. They have it made. Its the shareholders that have nothing!!!!!!!!!
Thanks to those who responded. In summary, the responses were quite unfavorable to entering ACG at this level and for very possibly valid reasons. It seems that most have little trust left in this fund after getting hurt time after time over several years, even though in the past there have been those who suggested buying ACG when it was in a weaker position than now.(ex presently earning its dividend and discount to NAV) It is a fact that ACG performed very poorly while interest rates were falling which should have been the good times. Enough rambling! Thanks again!
Does anyone else think ACG is worth a shot at the $7.60 level. Here are possible reasons why it could be. 1) Paying 7.9% dividend. 2) Earnings cover the dividend. 3) Trading at a 4% discount to NAV. 4) Fed should be near at least to a pause in Fed Rate. Opinions appreciated!!!
If it is OK for corporate officials to backdate options; It it is OK for the politicians to buy stocks about which they have insider information; Why shouldn't investors be able to pick a stock price at the low of the day AFTER THE MARKET CLOSES???? I know I could do a lot better. How about YOU?
400 million in fines and stock holders equity down the drain to keep these crooked bastards out of jail; And the analysts keep wondering why investors are reluctant to invest in U S stocks!
When an official in a position like Bernanke holds makes an exclusive comment to a member of the media like he did, it shows that he is either not very smart and therefore a poor choice for fed chairman or he is just another dishonest SOB. He gave a major policy speech and then comes away admitting that he was so unclear that everyone misunderstood him. WOW! Watch our for this guy!
retirement package plus other benies. This is beyond rediculous and is the kind of combination of greed and poor judgment that will create unrest among the masses in the USA. Eventually this kind of behavior in our capitalistic system will contribute to its destruction. These are the opinions of one born and bred in the USA!!!
ass, that's what they are going to do. They will lower their chip prices enough to take back market share that they have lost and then some. With that and new product introduction, we will see where AMD ends up.
is trading almost $3 below the target is beyond belief. They are downgrading to cast a negative implication toward INTC realizing that the media will blow it out of proportion and that the investing pubic isn't smart enough to see how crazy the downgrade is. INTC should go up to $23 under their reasoning. Our market system has become very corrupted and the SEC, media, and politicians are all behind it. And the media keep asking why small investors are keeping their money on the sidelines!
to take over the whole chip manufacturing world. AMD seems to be the only chip manufacturer that is totally in favor with everyone. Old Hector has them all by the balls and he ain't lettin' go. Still beats the
