Thanks! There is the silver lining, for sure. My original basis was $3, so the bill was large, but I guess if I had to pick my problems, this wouldn't be a horrible one to choose.
I'm probably the only one who wasn't paying attention and only now am realizing the effect of the inversion. Did I "sell" my shares at the pps of the day we became Irish and buy them back a split second later? I have a big tax bill that I hadn't anticipated, but if my basis is now in the teens I guess I can live with it.
If any of you could confirm this for me I'd be in your debt.
Nice metaphor. Weren't the armed forces supposed to incorporate an aspect of hybrid into their rolling stock a long time ago? Once upon a time it seemed we were positioned to leverage a move like that but I don't think it ever happened and if it did it certainly didn't involve the Q. Most logical place to do work like this would be in USPS stock, as they're probably the largest single-agency fleet on the road and don't have to be concerned with PR over trading IC for something else in machines that carry soldiers to battle.
Not that GHG reduction needs to be exclusively vehicle-oriented, but as far as this arm is concerned that would be a logical place to start. Bottom line, though, is that the EO is an unfunded mandate and not worth the paper it's printed on so it's likely not going to happen any time soon if at all and even if it did the Q would be as likely to get a piece as a snowman in July walking down to the store to pick me up a six pack of Coors lite.
I bailed from my 0.20 before the last drop. Was waiting all year for a strong pop before it all went away, but it never happened. Maybe my getting out last week will turn out like it always does (the pps should go through the ceiling). Good luck!
Every time when I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It went by, like dusk to dawn
Isn't that the way
Everybody's got the dues in life to pay ...
Call me crazy, but I've been trying to just post about this particular company and leave my other social commentary to fits at the bar. Though I get taken to task sometimes for that too. The only posts I've had deleted are the ones that describe how I want to brush his hair and tell him stories and I'm not sure if they get taken off because they were flagged or if the forum has a problem with a man wanting to brush another fellow's hair and tell him stories.
