It sucks that McDonald's rounds their employees up off the street at gun point and forces them to work. If only we had a fair system. Something like employees knowing exactly what the job required, and know exactly what they would be getting paid, and they could make the decision that they wanted to work for McDonald's on their own.
Maybe one day we will have that utopia.
That happens every month. The stock price doesn't shoot up every month, so that doesn't explain why it would go up this month.
So you short something, you said you was going to buy 1,000 shares if your stock broker had them available. It goes up over $2 a share and you don't see a problem?
On a stock that pays a 14% dividend? By my numbers you've already had to pay 1 dividend to hold this stock, that's $140. I don't know what other fees there are. As long as this stock is over $19, I think you've got a huge problem.
I bought this stock at $98 over 3 years ago. In that 3 years I believe the lowest it has ever dropped was to $92. I find it hard to believe it's just going to crash and be down to your $66 claim.
Well, I hope you got out at $18.71, because it's up over $20 today. Plus, since your original post, I've been paid 3 dividends, a total of .54 per share.
