I don't care about the past. I made money then and now too. I want to see you post your trade for the super collapse you've been predicting for several years now.
So can the SPY board count on you to post your trade vehicle and entry point when the time finally comes?
Remember that FE subsidiary JCP&L has a base rate case decision coming in the next few weeks/months. An FE rep told me this spring that the decision was expected sometime this summer. There is another such case ongoing for Monpower subsidiary.... not sure of the timeframe for that decision. And there is a PJM follow-on capacity auction due in Sept I believe. The rate case decisions could have a much greater impact on stock price than dividend.
No. The time to short them is when the the short-term rates start to move up faster than long-term rates resulting in a flat or inverted yield curve.
@@@@@ When the yield curve is inverted banks are often caught paying more on short-term deposits than they are making on long-term loans leading to a loss of profitability and reluctance to lend resulting in a credit crunch. When the yield curve is upward sloping banks can profitably take-in short term deposits and make long-term loans so they are eager to supply credit to borrowers resulting in a credit bubble.
Ever hear of oil by rail? Even TRP is building out railcar loading infrastructure to service this oil transport alternative to pipelines.
Looks like some IO supply reduction is going to take place.
@@@@@Labrador Iron halts operations on higher prices, costs Low global iron ore prices and financing difficulties have forced Labrador Iron Mines Holdings Ltd. to suspend all operations at its mines for the year. The company said on Wednesday it plans to focus in 2014 on developing its flagship Houston Mine, located near Schefferville in northern Quebec. But Labrador Iron, a high-cost producer, said developing Houston is subject to completion of financing and the negotiation of major contracts. Labrador Iron said it is exploring various financing options and is in talks with commodity traders, financial institutions and others. But it warned there “are no assurances that LIM will be successful in obtaining any required financing, or in obtaining financing on a timely basis or on reasonable or acceptable terms and, as part of this process, LIM is continually evaluating the current situation with respect to the current price of iron ore and the timing and risk associated with potential financing proposals.” The company will have to stop all operations and development activities if it fails to obtain adequate financing on a timely basis, it said.

But Labrador Iron, a high-cost producer, said developing Houston is subject to completion of financing and the negotiation of major contracts. The company also said it is seeking to cut costs by renegotiating agreements with contractors and suppliers. Desjardins Securities analyst Jackie Przybylowski said in a research note that the company could start work on the Houston Mine this summer but it would have to raise $20-million to do so. “We see a low probability that the company will raise the required funds in the next few years.” A failure to renegotiate the terms of an off-take agreement with RBRG Trading Ltd. “could be catastrophic for the company,” said the analyst.
But yes, all utes are down hard today. I noticed on the FE daily price chart that the 50 day SMA was set to cross up through the 200. Today's action will delay that marker.
I would hardly consider 2.62% from 2.57 yesterday a spike... and the rate is still far below the 3% level it was at back in early January.
An appearance by this guy is imminent. He never fails to show up when the stock takes a dive...
Apparently a lot higher number than you. You overlook the basic fact that LED bulbs are a new technology, and many of today's consumers are apt to research technology using the tools of the internet, just as they do a lot of electronics devices, until they have a firm grasp of what it is. Your mindset appears to be stuck in an antiquated brick and mortar sales model... Did you find the LED Light Bulbs page on the HD website yet? How about the 'facings' there huh...
You imply exactly that by your statement. Nothing precludes a company from being BOTH technology AND market/sales driven. I believe management pushes hard on tech/manufacturing groups and I am also convinced they do likewise for all their departments and that would certainly include sales.
CREE's move to partner with HD a year or so ago, after they managed to figure out an A19 bulb that matches their internal expectations on performance/price, attests to the push on both fronts. And this is only the beginning...
So no one here thinks AYI poor results have an implication on CREE's prospects? Is it possible that CREE is taking marketshare from AYI?
@ Highly fast paced culture, competitive, long hours, intense..THEY ARE NOT MARKETING/SALES DRIVEN@
Nothing new there... that culture is pervasive in the semiconductor chip industry. And sorry but if you think CREE only holds up that standard to their manufacturing folks and lets marketing/sales sit back with their shoes on their desks you are a fool.
HD website A-Line page shows 4 CREE products in first row of 4 as Top Sellers and 15 of 24 products on the first page. And you think CREE is lacking in product placement... righttt....
I stated before that you are ignoring completely the fact that HD uses virtual store shelves where consumers can see the best sellers and do their product research then either order online or go to their local store to pick up the product. From his perspective, store shelves are only relevant to the extent that the product is on the floor and simple to find.
I count 11 out of 24 Best Sellers are CREE products on the website LED Light Bulb page (you know, the one you couldn't find), and the CREE products have a far greater number of reviews.
How the heck do you 'catch up quick' by announcing a higher resolution 4K TV that is even harder to make when you can't even deliver the simpler regular HD version in any volume? I heard enough about prototypes and concepts...
I wonder if AUO is aiming at this specific market to kickstart sales. Lots of opportunity in automotive - instrument cluster, nav/music, video screens...
