Not so sure... CNR.TO broke the 200 day SMA at 79.82 today. Dow Transport Index has been rangebound since November, and well off its high of 9217 from last Dec 2014.
DVA new target is $95.
@@@@DaVita HealthCare Partners (NYSE:DVA) was upgraded by Robert W. Baird from a “neutral” rating to an “outperform” rating in a research note issued on Monday. The firm currently has a $95.00 price objective on the stock, up from their previous price objective of $75.00. Robert W. Baird’s target price would indicate a potential upside of 13.22% from the company’s current price.
If this is what he was referring to it's old news
@@@@By ERIC MAURICE BRUSSELS, 25. MAR, 18:40 The EU Wednesday officially announced it would impose anti-dumping duties on Chinese and Taiwanese steel imports in Europe. The EU published in its official journal a list of import duties on stainless steel cold rolled flat products (SSCR) of 24-25 percent for Chinese companies and 10-12 percent for Taiwanese companies. This kind of steel is mainly used in buildings, household appliances, medical equipment and the car industry. Some 3.7 million tonnes were produced last year, of which 72 percent was by European makers.
FYI: iwatch uses an oled display. Oled technology is penetrating display markets such as phones, and is set to do the same in tv's, automotive, and quite likely lighting. For those who are not aware, Universal Display Corp (ticker OLED) is an IP firm that holds basic patents for this technology. I've held the stock many years, and after many false starts, it may be on the cusp of significant growth.
Nuclear fission scares the hella out me too. I understand the need for it though (well at least the energy generation side of it), and so accept it as a necessary risk that benefits the human race. However, I don't understand the need for what geneticists are doing here with human dna, and it worries me, even if I won't live to see the results of this direction in research. The world protests against global warming, while genetic engineering remains largely invisible. I suspect one day that will change too, hopefully not too late.
I dunno.... it's bad enough the food we eat is gmo'ed and meat and dairy are pumped up with antibiotics and hormones, but to screw around like this with human dna could end very badly for the 'human' race.
Scary stuff, unless you're a biogeneticist, then I suppose it's just another day at the lab.
@@@@A new study out of China that marks the first time DNA in a human embryo has been altered in a way that would carry to future generations has “crossed a line,” bioethicists warn. Researchers edited a non-viable embryo’s genome to remove a gene that causes thalassemia, a serious blood disorder that can cause anaemia and even death. The study, published in Protein and Cell, employs a relatively new method to remove trouble-making genes from the genome called CRISPR/Cas9. It’s previously been successful in animal tests, and it has been tested on human DNA before, but those studies did not alter what’s called the human “germ line” — what any theoretical baby would pass onto future generation through its eggs or sperm.The results weren’t what researchers were hoping for, and they conclude CRISPR can “cleave” a gene “efficiently” in human embryos, but it also caused unexpected mutations, known as “mosaics.”But it’s precisely those mutations and the fact it didn’t work that have bioethicists so concerned. There were rumours for months this landmark study was pending. Altering the human germ line, even in a non-viable embryo, “sounds enormously risky. The off-target mutations were significant,” said Kerry Bowman, a bioethicist at the University of Toronto in an interview Friday. “A line has definitely been crossed.” “This is the first time really in human history where we are directly altering the genetic story, essentially, of what it means to be human,” he said.
The most powerful spectrum goggles on earth won't provide you the necessary vision to see where I actually stand. You can only speculate... and you know what they say about assuming things. So take a hike jack, and take all your imaginary pals with you.
And how exactly are you positioned to profit from said 'collapse'? Sure, there will be a correction, and maybe a collapse, but honest shorts here have been burned beyond recognition. As I see it, there's no magic bullet that guarantees that you will profit from the crash when it occurs. Positioning for it has proven very difficult. Personally, I continue to stay long and apply a few select hedges.
Maybe I am wrong, but with the Nasdaq stocks I hold at least, I am not overly concerned if there is a pullback.
Transports are indeed problematic. in the case or railroaders, west coast port shutdowns and coal shipments are a sore point in particular. AMZN is AMZN... it has defied common sense for many years now. What do you make of their AWS division results?
funny, no response to your question by permabears. i'd venture we see a long-overdue breakout barring any disruptions like a major war.
I don't follow CHK closely. Didn't they both face antitrust lawsuits? How many lawsuits does CHK have against them in Michigan?
If RAI is such a poorly run company, why did BTI opt to support the RAI-LO merger and maintain a 42% stake in the newly combined business?
ECA settled a year ago for $5M
@@@@Cheboygan, Michigan, May 5 (Reuters) - Natural gas giant Encana Corp has agreed to pay Michigan $5 million in a settlement that could clear the company of criminal antitrust charges stemming from its role in a 2010 land leasing spree. Chesapeake Energy Corp vowed at a Monday hearing to fight its own criminal antitrust charges. Michigan's attorney general alleges that Chesapeake conspired with Encana to keep land lease prices artificially low in the state.
