9 is high too, geez, it may meander around 8 for all we know. I wouldn't be upset if it did either, the stock and company in general have come along way.
It has been several times, but you can't expect this to shoot up to 10 by the end of the year, like some aliases think. It is all a process. The low of the year was 3, now it is 8, pretty damn good for a dead company, huh? Now to expect the same results next is rather optimistic.
You are actually "sickened?" So foreign sales is not important? Wow, you are correct Retired, he is ignorant.
To a white man with a beard that lives in the sky. The idea is praying for someone who is preceived as "lost" or "misguided" and making them aware of that fact. But that doesn't help if the person who is praying is not "lost" or misguided" as well, and praying for you based on there own fears or selfishness, because they perceive themselves as righteous or knowledgeable and above the fray. It is like your Mother praying for you to get a "good" job based on what she believes is a "good" job, discounted what you believe or your ideas, because she know better. You Mother is praying for you based on her own fears, real or imagined, and not trusting you to run your own life the way you want too.
Honestly, it is rather boring, even 8 or over. Stocks are a progression of ups and downs and we hope in the long run we are up when we sell.
"Perfectly natural" is a hard thing to quanitify. Anything is possible, the market could go sour, with tapering, US congressional dysfunction and a general market correction. I know it is easy for people to jump to "manipulation" idea.
From your mouth to gods ears. If it doesn't hit that number or at least real close to that number, can you buy everyone on this board a coffee and a kruller? If it hits the number, I will buy, ok?
Wait a minute Yahoo Police. You shouldn't do that to the name - Isn't that a legitimate name?
There are no "bad words," only bad intentions. That is also a common name - I think you need to chill out a bit dude.
I heard that alot recently and a red flag popped up in my head that would not be the case.
You know whomever it might be will cut the fat big time. Elop would do it for sure, with his track record of Nokia. If I were a Microsoft employee, I would worry. They will probably spinoff parts of the company and cut the fat. Ballmer has gotten away with it so long, because the company has made money, not so much for the shareholders, and he was living off his repetition from the good ole days of MSFT, that he didn't need to really cut jobs and hurt old friends. But this is a new world and his way wasn't working and they soon will lose money. So now he can take his billions and do whatever he wants, which is a good thing for MSFT.
