"College Football Championship Futures. The Alabama Crimson Tide are sitting as the 7/2 favorites on the odds to win the College Football Championshp Game at Bovada, followed by Oregon at 4/1, Florida State and TCU at 7/1, and Mississippi State and Ohio State at 15/2."
Last week Ohio State was ranked number 3 behind Bama and Oregon. They need some help.
But it does trade at 40 times next year's earnings and in my opinion earning's growth will continue to decline thus the stock is priced for perfection.
GMCR has confirmed that earnings will be announced Wednesday. The consensus earnings are $0.77, with a high and low of $0.86 and $0.73, respectively. The mean has not changed significantly as the end of the quarter nears.
Expected Timing: After close
I'll say they meet expectations but warn about the future and the stock drops 8% to 141/share. Current price 153.
IBM recently went XD and rather than take the cash she's elected to reinvest the dividend.
IBM is currently her 8th largest position with a cost basis of 190/share.
He sure didn't answer her question-why is he charging a 2% fee to manage a fund that earns less than an Index Fund? And Cramer didn't address that either because his charitable trust also underperforms the averages by a wide margin.
List of Large Caps in this Slideshow:
Large Cap Company Ticker Market Cap
Apple Inc AAPL 639.33
Exxon Mobil Corp. XOM 411.93
Microsoft Corporation MSFT 401.26
Google Inc GOOG 367.00
Berkshire Hathaway Inc. BRK.A 344.00
Johnson & Johnson JNJ 302.86
Wells Fargo & Co. WFC 281.07
We're currently in 5th place but three of the top five pay dividends and buy back shares which in my opinion makes it a two way race between GOOG and BRK as to whom will eventually be the largest.
We'll have record earnings in the 4th quarter due to a lack of cat losses-my estimate is 4000/share and the balance will come though a late surge in our stock holding which translates to BV.
It's a tax free dividend for Grandma so yes "Whooopeeeee!"
By 2020 the dividend should be around $10/share so she'll continue to hold her shares. A girl's got to pay her rent.
We're the police department for the world and it's funded by U.S. tax payers and the printing of money. Unless this changes the $$$ will continue to lose value in the near future.
So to answer your question-don't worry about it. And yes I own KO but I'm short call options against it.
I'd buy more too but I'm short the Jan- 165 put options, so I may be buying more at that price unless it rallies.
And I'd put money on Buffett buying more or selling puts against it as I'm doing.
AIG reported another great quarter and it's book value is now over 77/share.

We'll be there in 7.77 weeks.
