This has been discussed multiple times on this board. A shares are typically own in taxable accounts and B share in non-taxable. I don't think the shares are equal due to buybacks of B shares. It is better for the company to buyback B shares that A.
Might be a suckers rally but it is kind of like the writer at the end of the day has to try to explain the movements in the market. Not really possible.\ in most cases.
It hasta be shasta. I totally agree with you. Syria is the big news for the moment and looks like there may be a negotiated peace.
I retired with 33+ years.. There were ups and downs. Most of the downs were a result of untrained managers. Long ago the board was very negative until a light bulb came one that we could make money trading rather than holding. At one point you had to call in and you got the closing price. Once the internet came around you would notice that the network was very slow at about 15 minutes to 3 pm. I think the stock might get a better following by just changing it's stock symbol to not have the .,-,^ . I have suggested this many times but I have yet to get any interest at all. Maybe there is some truth in if your not Dutch your not much (j/k).
I was getting seasick from all the waves. I think that a near budget crisis may shake the market. in the short term. I think you could just flip a coin and it could go either way.
