I'd unravel any riddle
For any individ'le
In trouble or in pain
With the thoughts you'd be thinkin'
You could be another Lincoln
If you only had a brain
At least Ford's long standing shareholders didn't see their stock certificates become worthless like the GM shareholders did during the great recession.
Thanks NY; I'm sticking with my black nuggets for awhile and agree they may start to take on a certain 'luster' in time. I think that after 4 decades of trading stocks I've finally learned the lesson that I need to be patient with my instincts. As my cousin's husband (hedge fund manager) says: "you can be right about your analysis, but be off on the timing".
Does anyone know if existing shareholders will get any percentage in shares of the newly established MLP VLP when it gets spun off? Alon did this with ALDW and the shareholders got nada, and I haven't been able to see anywhere in the VLO press releases where they indicate that shareholders will be included in this deal; in fact it seems to imply that VLO shareholders will only benefit indirectly since VLO will control the majority of shares of the MLP. And I do know that the one advantage would be to raise money and hopefully see the VLO share price go up as a result, but it is a bit uncomfortable to see an asset/s being taken away from the company holdings. Thanks in advance.
You put the shama lama, baby

For you, a roller coaster. That's cool. I'm a bit more mellow as in this nice ditty:
Sittin' in the morning sun
I'll be sittin' when the evening comes
Watching the ships roll in
Then I watch them roll away again, yeah
First you get the money,
Then you get the power,
Then you renew an old alliance and get back in the game......
(okay, so they get the 'chicks' too). :)
Actually my friend I high-lited the 'tend to' to be polite and make sure I wasn't being misconstrued. Take a chill, have a drink and realize I was just trying to add some information on the topic. Not trying to diss you or anyone else on Nokia, okay?
Will Yahoo censor me a 3rd time? Here goes nothing:
There is a study from the Journal of Business from 1997 out of Tulane titled:
Long‐Run Common Stock Returns following Stock Splits and Reverse Splits*
They found that companies that undergo R/S of the stock 'tend to' under-perform. (Also stocks that split tended to under-perform too) Okay, so let's vote for a share buy-back or special dividend. Heck, why not both?
High sixes only if a market correction or significant pull-back. Thanksgiving over, but Alabama's coach Nick Saban gets the 'turkey' of the weekend award. Congratulations Columbus; your Christmas gift came early this year! :)
I learned my GS lesson with Hersheys. Bought it at 36 and then I stupidly sold at 37 because they put it on the conviction sell list..... and now it's just under triple digits. Trade on their recommendations at your own peril (or financial loss). They only care about making money and will say or do anything they can to maximize their profits.... at your expense.
