I was rebutting your statement that no one was going to shut down a steel plant. The report I posted indicates otherwise. I'll keep doing my own research and share what I want,to, not what you request.
Yup very nice results and solid outlook. But I don;t know about shorts getting crushed as Wy has dropped well of the high of recent months...covering probably yes.
@3:16 am Weyerhaeuser beats by $0.06, reports revs in-line (WY) : Reports Q2 (Jun) earnings of $0.26 per share, $0.06 better than the Capital IQ Consensus Estimate of $0.20; revenues fell 8.0% year/year to $1.81 bln vs the $1.81 bln consensus. Q3 Segment outlooK expects slightly lower earnings from the Timberlands segment in the third quarter. In the West, the company expects lower fee harvest volumes, partially offset by higher log sales realizations, as a result of a prolonged fire season. expects higher earnings from the Wood Products segment in the third quarter. The company anticipates seasonally higher sales volumes across most product lines and improved average sales realizations for lumber and oriented strand board. expects significantly higher earnings from the Cellulose Fibers segment in the third quarter primarily due to minimal scheduled maintenance outage days. Additionally, the company anticipates lower average pulp sales realizations, partially offset by increased sales volumes.
what's your problem anyway... you post 5 year old news and then expect people to figure out what your point is? sheesh
Pierre clearly was a bad CEO there is now no doubt. Vision was great but execution was terrible. But you were a bad manager of your investments if you did not properly diversify them.
PM is quite late to the game. MO stock price has moved up a lot over the last couple of years so any such move now will be relatively costly, but not out of the question.
BTI had a 42% stake in RAI for many years, and upped it significantly by injecting funds to maintain the same stake in the larger RAI-LO company. BTI also has a Canadian subsidiary called Imperial Tobacco Canada... how's THAT for confusing!
PS: I am long HXL and PCP. Maybe you should consider diversifying your aerospace holdings like me.
What is so difficult for you to comprehend. I support the company only because the CS project is finally set to launch after a long and tortuous struggle. It's chumps like you that hold for a 20 year ride down and then dump at the very bottom. Go ahead fool, time to sell your shares.
to Buy is enough to move this pig any more. Pretty sad state of affairs for ORCL lately.
@Oracle (NYSE:ORCL) has struggled in transitioning to cloud computing, but investment bank Jefferies says the company is doing better and gave the enterprise software giant a rare upgrade. Analysts John DiFucci and Brad Zelnick, in a research report Thursday, raised their rating on Oracle stock to buy from hold and hiked their price target to 50 from 41. Oracle stock was flat in afternoon trading in the stock market today, near 40. "While changes to the go-to-market strategy have been painful over the past few years, we have recently heard about better execution in the field by the (Oracle) sales force," the analysts wrote. "This is a relative statement, but is something that we haven't heard in some time." DiFucci and Zelnick added that the company's 12c and Exadata products could bring as much as $13 billion in new opportunities for Oracle. "Even a fraction of this aggregate $13 billion opportunity would be meaningful to (Oracle's) $38 billion in annual revenue," the analysts said.
Congratulations beachball... you've wasted another 3 months posting ad nauseam about how great your favorite (and only?) holding DWCH is, to zero effect.
No one huh... you should try reading more.instead of posting bs.
@Emissions controls in Tangshan, China, could cut into city’s 90 million tons of annual production. RTGE Staff JULY 20, 2015 Environmental regulators in China are reportedly targeting steel mills in the city of Tangshan, China, with stricter emissions limits that could cut into production in the steel-intensive region. According to a Reuters report, new standards to be enforced in the summer and early fall of 2015 could force furnace and mill closures and thus cut into China’s steelmaking capacity glut. More than 25 steelmakers operate in the city, located less than 100 miles east of Beijing, operating more than 100 blast furnaces, according to Reuters. The city’s estimated annual production of 90 million metric tons of steel surpasses that of the entire United States. The measures, which in part target the use of lower-grade coal, have been designed to ease air pollution in Tangshan and Hebei Province in which it is located and also to bring China’s steel production closer in line to what it is estimated to consume annually by 2017. China’s current annual steel production rate of more than 820 million metric tons has resulted in an overcapacity situation that has lowered steel prices globally as exported Chinese billet and finished steel has been shipped into other nations. The low steel prices have likewise suppressed the value of ferrous scrap. The Reuters report says steel traders in China are already anticipating the emissions enforcement effort will have an impact, with billet prices in northern China rising by as much as 60 Chinese yuan ($9.50) per ton in mid-July.
Chart shows support in the low 40's and FLR could get there after this lousy earnings report..I don;t hold the stock, but have been following it... not going to buy until the world economy starts to show good growth and/or oil prices show a sustained recovery back above 60.
#$%$ youu YHOO. Re-post under a new topic.
Cut and polish the gem to turn it into a jewel. The new CEO who ran BA.TO is now working his magic on MBT.TO.
@Allstream's restructuring efforts, which are mostly complete for 2015, have resulted in $16.5 million in restructuring costs (as of June 30, 2015 ). By streamlining operations and improving capital investment decision-making, Allstream generated $8.7 million in free cash flow in the second quarter compared to $5.8 million in Q2 2014. For the full year, Allstream is expected to be cash flow positive net of restructuring costs. "We enter the second half of the year with a solid, stable operating platform that is beginning to deliver the financial results we all believed Allstream was capable of generating," said Jay Forbes , MTS Allstream, Chief Executive Officer. Allstream sale process With restructuring largely complete and Allstream positioned to be free cash flow positive for 2015 and beyond, Management has shifted focus to manage a fully-planned exit of this business, one that will maximize value while promoting deal certainty. The Company has retained advisors, has a clear understanding of the approval process and requirements, and is constructing its information repositories for prospective purchasers, who Management plans to engage with in the second half of this year.
Yup... BTI is kicking it. And with RAI set to reap the benefits of its recent merger with LO, BTI is nicely positioned to profit too. The management at PM must be looking hard at this situation. I'm sure they would have liked to own a chunk of MO these last couple of years.
