WHY WHY WHY limit it to WB? Those dead birds at the solar plant may know more ab out IBM 5 years out than HC....
"Projects" and experiments never fail--although they frequently correct the hubris of their managers.
"YOu could say the same thing about technologies developed for" undoing willful stupidity; then use HC as the gauge....
"ibd, another waste of $$$$$$$$ ?" Yes. It has been since around 1998. The only things that are bigger wastes are Barron's and Forbes--if you're limiting it to print.
At which point it would be attractive to investors..who are NOT traders, even if they have 5 year holds.
Here's a fun question for you (and jad) Counting cash flow to come from signed contracts, but not allowing any "good will" or other horse hockey that can;t stand on an auction block, what's 1x BOOK?
It's exactly as I said here back around 2010...Have the stones to fill in the quote:
"The logic is simple: If you are going to be a net buyer of stocks in the future, either directly with your own money or indirectly (through your ownership of a company that is repurchasing shares), you are hurt when stocks
Getting that reality out there will of course, damage tonnes of retail commish brokers and RIAs. Good. F*em.
F*em with some Burlington rolling stock.
They don;t have to move much to put pressure on Russia. As usual, Wall St is trading Main St. blood for continued chances to create beta to trade on.
The Saudis have a "balanced budget" @ $85 oil. A failing recall suggests Russia needs ~ $97, and Putin is in enough of a hole to be trading oil to China for much less in order to sustain the illusion of a "growth economy."
To me, it's a good time to cut USA production so that Venezuela can pump itself into total collapse; and and inflation adjust Federal fuel tax to what built the interstates--1/8 the price of a pack of Camels.
I recall WB talking about why he owned Gillette, back before it made the Duracell purchase, as being an essentially WB kind of play: high value add to the raw materials, no alternatives for customers, and a retail price point that guaranteed continual sales---same principal that made MCD and DQ. attractive. Given that there are reports about the USA facing a critical wall-plug shortage, the mkt for "high end" batteries of any kind is secure for a generation or more.
OT--I see that the idiots who gutted the Sahara are now tripping over their own c****. $52 for a buffet and they expect the locals to show up? Rotfl...
Amen. ....and amen. Anything over what the sheriff would get for it at auction is wishful thinking.
Take a look at Business Week showing 6,000 real estate parcels @ the same clear as 1 original SuperMan comic: "surprise bid for a blighted slice of Detroit" (p.40 in print).
Same principal as created the hilarious results from the most recent stress tests of Euro banks.
Reducing the population raises the utility of buybacks. After enough people are dead, the exchanges can just keep track of the buybacks.
Tobacco companies help maintain the stability of SocialSecurity and Medicare actuarial tables, and so must be good for "the economy."
Short answer? It's counterfeiting to ***up the supply/demand. Longer answer? Cramer, Maria-baby's boy toy Jono Steinberg, and what SAC did on their insider trading over the Alzheimer's drug.
I was a truly beyond royal pain at every possible place and level on that topic for a decade, starting about when you retired out.
Some of the changes to short reporting and accounting are due in part to me--leading to the anecdote on my old website's "about us" page.
On another hand, if the short interest was reported in real time, trade by trade, I'd be all caveat emptor about it, like I was about stuff like Greek bonds in 2008-9.
Mauldin is about 3 steps down from Cramer. Those scummy enough to short can usually make excellent returns by hitting anything he picks.
As has been noted before, WB's basis in BYD is around 1 15/16. Did many gameboy wannabe get their tails handed to them, as is their proper place as retail road kill? Sure. Did those who know to "trade into accumulation" get comfortable with BYD? Yup.
A more amusing question is why S&P changed the rules to let inverts and welfare queens stay in the SPY.
When you are right..you are right. Thumbs up.
Now if you could only up the batting average...... :-)
While it is laughable to see you pretend to be able to say what I need, it is a fact that over the past 3-4 years I have spent a few hundred hours working with people attempting to undermine the ologarch-style parasitism of "stadiums" etc. As a seat holder for the software that is used to estimate the "economic benefits" of such efforts to enslave urban residents, I am likely far more familiar with what frauds such things are than you ever want to be.
"The military contractors price gouge the governments for hundreds of billions. " Better not tell B TX that--Navy funded research kept it as a listed stock.
" that you said were worth only 15 cents." SHOW ME THE POST where I ever said that. Evidently you like to show your own hypocrisy and powerlessness by inventing ad homs rather than presenting hypotheticals demonstrating why this dog or any other listed enterprise will be able to do x, y, or z...
"You need to shut up." Seems like you need to kiss my feet and are frustrated that you can't find them.
Or maybe you want to come up with 200 fact based words on how this dog gets to have gross minus COG be higher than payroll and bennies for the insiders.
That is, a welfare check to BTX's landlords... as is the case with much CIRM spending.
Long time no see. Trust you have been well and prosperous.
"He represents most of the Ceo's in biotech-keep pumping, diluting, enriching themselves- without ever producing any revenues/earnings."
And when their boards won;t tolerate it anymore, Mikey hires them.
"What's with all the subsidiaries? " Thery cost $35 to create, and take Judith about 1/2 an hour. And create a great way to shuffle money around, so that the 10s have a way around the CBRL.
Take a look at where Mikey et al have their future options price -- @ 1/2.
The professionals here are then seeing your failure to make it through high school level accounting.
