Instead of preaching to people to pray for forgiveness and salvation from impending Armageddon, why not convince people to unite and work together to prevent Armageddon from occurring in the first place? Your faith demands Armageddon, and hence you and your entourage are really no different from McCain and his warmongering pals. ... you all belong in the Loony bin. Over and out.
It's the new math...yeah that's the ticket
@@@@LOS ANGELES (MarketWatch) -- Valeant Pharmaceuticals Inc. VRX, +1.96% said late Wednesday it remains "firmly committed" to its $158-a-share offer for Salix Pharmaceuticals Ltd. SLXP, -0.36% despite a higher, $175-a-share bid from Endo International ENDP, -0.87% for Salix. In a press release delivered after the market close, Valeant said its offer "delivers immediate and certain value to Salix shareholders." Valeant's offer expires March 31, and the company said it expects to close the deal the next day.
New Rome's commander-in-chief is evidently of the shiaa faith. It's only over his dead body that Boehner and his thugs can succeed in triggering the Armageddon you are so restless and anxious to see.
DVA broke through the high of 78.52 reached back on Oct.31 with significantly higher than average volume traded and a flat market. It's hard to believe this tanked to below 72 after earnings release less than a month ago. Any chance Buffet and his boys are getting ready to buy out the company?
wow you really are something... do you always argue with people who agree with you dipchit? you remind me of sheldon cooper... can't recognize sarcasm if it hits him over the head
Nah the guy is being brutally honest and I see. nothing wrong with that. He is in a very tough position given the outlook on IO and there's no magic bullet except perseverance to do whatever he can... period.
Huh? The guy's in Australia. It makes perfect sense he would focus on their operations there. You guys crack me up... maybe you should push to get surf elected as CEO... sheesh
Well, I bought a few shares of BTI today at ~109. Looks like there was some pending news in the UK that may have been pushing it down, although probably more EU FX-related than anything else. BTI revenue is split up roughly into 25% in each of West Europe, East Europe/Africa/ME, Asia, and Americas.
@@@@@British politicians are expected to approve laws on Wednesday to enforce plain, standardized packaging for cigarettes, amid strong opposition by major tobacco companies. But one analyst told CNBC that despite complaints from the likes of British American Tobacco (BAT), there was little prospect of a big decline in sales.
It's never over til it's over. Looks like the show by the fat lady might be cancelled.
@@@@@(Bloomberg) -- OAO Mechel, Russia’s largest coking coal producer, jumped the most since Jan. 29 as lender VTB Group said the coal producer may still avoid bankruptcy. “The door is open and if there’s a possibility to resolve it, we will,” VTB Group Chief Executive Officer Andrey Kostin said Wednesday in an interview in London. Kostin said he plans to meet Mechel Chairman Igor Zyuzin next week.
In the Q press release, NAT did not state when in 2015 the 6 tankers were scheduled to go into drydock. I can only assume it will be spread out evenly over the year to minimize any impacts on revenue.
@@@One vessel was drydocked in 4Q2014. In 2015 we expect 6 vessels to be drydocked.
The Queen is clearly not amused with the tobacco companies, but I decided to start a small long position today anyway
@@@@@British parliament set to vote to ban branding on cigarette packs LONDON, March 11 (Reuters) - Lawmakers in the lower house of Britain's parliament are expected to vote to ban branding on cigarette packs by a large margin later on Wednesday, a move that would force manufacturers to adopt plain packets in England by 2016.
Nice win in a hot area
@@@@@Hewlett-Packard showed some muscle in the fledgling Network Functions Virtualization market by beating Cisco Systems, VMware and others in signing telecom carrier Telefonica to a multiyear pact. Hewlett-Packard (NYSE:HPQ) is one of several tech giants scrambling to offer NFV, a virtualization computing system that relies more on software than hardware to help service providers speed an increasing amount of data through their networks at a reduced cost. Besides Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO) and VMware (NYSE:VMW), other NFV providers include Juniper Networks (NYSE:JNPR). HP will fuel Telefonica's Unica project. Telefonica is moving all of its services, including Internet and mobile, to a new platform driven by NFV and software-defined networking, another technology system where software presides over hardware. The project will take several years. Spain-based Telefonica (NYSE:TEF) is a large telecom operating in 21 countries, mostly in Europe and Latin America.
