    Wow finally! Made it by the skin of its teeth but volume was not that good. Now lets see if those teeth can sink in and hold onto this gain tomorrow.

    How many attempts will it take for NKE to close above 80 and finally break out past the 52week high? Today looks promising but the volume is just not there.

    ---- Also, the hedges that are in place for 2015 are at a lower price than 2014. So income in 2015 looks problematic.----

    Huh? The hedges I see listed in the Q2 report are mostly at higher prices than those for 2014, not lower. Here's the gas derivatives. Same goes for the oil hedges.

    Indeed you are correct. Thanks for the post. PS: I don't refuse to recognize anything... it is simply that this matter is not all that important to me so I don't care to read about it in detail.

    --- It's not the record date that determines who gets the dividend, it's the ex-date.---

    Sheer nonsense. You have it completely backwards. It is precisely the Record Date that determines eligibility. The company looks to its Shareholder Register on the Record Date to identify the shareholders who will receive the divie. The ex-date is related to how long it takes for exchanges to process stock transactions (clearing and settlement).

    If you are NOT REGISTERED in the company ledger on the Record Date, you are NOT eligible to receive the dividend, plain and simple. That 'due bill' you chose to emphasize the importance of is obviously a mechanism to ensure that the divie is addressed in the name of the shareholder on the Record Date, and not the holder of the ADR on the day of the AGM (the conditional date).

    SEC ---- When a company declares a dividend, it sets a record date when you must be on the company's books as a shareholder to receive the dividend. Companies also use this date to determine who is sent proxy statements, financial reports, and other information. Once the company sets the record date, the stock exchanges or the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. fix the ex-dividend date. The ex-dividend date is normally set for stocks two business days before the record date.

    Why? Because, the RECORD date is IDENTICAL for both the US-ADR and LSE-listed stocks. If you are not the ADR shareholder of record on Aug 15 you are not entitled to receive the dividend. So in effect both have the same ex-dividend date... it's simply that the ADR divie is 'conditional/' on approval at the AGM and payment is delayed until such time. Refer to the information below from Citi Depositary Receipt Services

    @@@@@
    Depositary Notice to Holders of American Depositary Shares
    evidenced by American Depositary Receipts of Diageo plc –
    Dividend Payment
    ADR Record Date August 15, 2014
    ADR Payment Date October 7, 2014
    Date: August 11, 2014

    Diageo plc has declared a dividend payable on October 7, 2014 to holders of record August 15, 2014.
    Please note that payment of this dividend is subject to shareholder approval at Diageo’s Annual General Meeting scheduled for September 18, 2014. The New York Stock Exchange has announced that Diageo American Depositary Shares will carry due bills from August 13, 2014 through September 19, 2014 pending approval of the dividend at the Company’s Annual Meeting. Please be advised that any issuances processed during this period will be settled via DWAC.

    I don't see this $10.8M you allude to listed as a line item anywhere in the table of the 8K filing that shows the Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Results of Operations and Cash Flows.

    ---The $10.8 million in damages that was awarded to AZPN has been accounted for as revenue in AZPN's 4th quarter that ended on 30 June 2014. Back out this revenue for the lawsuit settlement, AZPN NON GAP earnings crater by over 10 cents per share.----

    And as far as non-gaap and gaap reporting, you are nuts. Maybe you can point out some large hi-tech firms that don't report this way? MSFT, CSCO, ORCL, AMAT, SNDK, (and probably a zillion others) sure do.

    ----ME: All high tech companies (and many non high-tech ones) post non-gaap alongside gaap results YOU: You are dead wrong.-----
