Technically he may have given $25 B, but that money was already paid for, so was he that "nice and giving," no. Zuckerberg is doing the samething now, he learned from buffett. Buffett is a great businessperson, but he is not warm and fuzzy as I look at it. It is all about MONEY. You can never trust any billionaire to do the "right thing," unless it serves their purposes. That's a worry with Trump that I have. His narcassism will rule, which may hurt the USA.
I would agree, but the market has to get better and rally or it won't happen. The Presidential campaigns are making things a little cloudy, but either way, if it is Hillary or Donald, they wil be PRO business.
It always was like that anyway and the USA always had the 3/4's of the pie of the pie, because that is where the economic grow and innovation came from - it is nice to also have the largest military as a hedge.
He is making the "assumption" that it won't go under 5. I would make that assumption as well, but the market is a crazy beast - Nokia makes a wrong move, CEO says something stupid, business falls dramatically, economic catastrophe, etc...
You can't think that NOK will remain in this 6 to 7 range forever if NOK does well and more importantly, when the market finally gets out of this funk. The Funk will eventually stop and the market will do very well, then the cycle repeats itself. You can't always have bad times and you can't always have good times or what is the purpose of the market and life as well. Some great Twilight Zone episodes on that subject. The tug of the ying and the yang. Whew, Philosophy 404 class will be held in the Union Hall next to the bookstore.
It may play well in other countries, you can't go by US domestic sales. China may love it, who knows. The final story hasn't been written yet. I hate short term thinking and knee-jerk reactions. I do get that the market runs on fear and knee-jerk reactions, which is one of the many problems with the market.
All kidding aside, my Ouiji Board just informed me that after the election when Trump is President it will be 11. Don't blame me, I'm just the messenger.
People wants LGF to hit another homerun and it probably won't do that, maybe. But the Movie will make money on it worldwide, but not enough. So we need to wait for a game changer, whatever that might look like.
I don't see 8 anytime soon, at least it doesn't look that way. But never discount what the Market and individual stocks might be able to do. The Market doesn't look good now for any stock in my opinion, so just on that 8 doesn't look hopeful, BUT, the Market does change, sometimes very quickly and we then can be off to the races. I think we have to have patience, especially if you think you have a very good company, which i believe Nokia is for the longhaul. I'm waiting another 3 to 5 yrs, if one had money, this would be a good time to add.
Hindsight is an amazing place, that's where dreams are made. Reality is a more difficult place to be, but in reality you learn more.
I lost all those ALU shares to a bonfire, oh know. I will visit up on yond hill pass The Forest of Misbelief's and over the Crick of Evil to visit the french Crone, so I can get back my lost ALU shares.
Wish me luck Lads!
Not sure what you mean about "relentless." I hope relentless in moderation,if that makes sense.
Are your being sarcastic Bart? If you are, kudos to you, you got to keep people guessing.
