Gee thanks for only designing the flaw into the CS engine you #$%$. Stop blabbering and fix the thing already...
@@@@@"This particular fix we think is just related to the CSeries engine itself," United Tech CFO Greg Hayes said on a conference call with analysts. "Each of the architecture is little bit different and we have not seen a similar issue on any of the other models that are out there." The company expects it will be a "couple of weeks" before the plane is flying again, Hayes said. "This is not a big, big deal in terms of the architecture," the CFO said
Blackwater associates can all go jump off a bridge for all I care. I suppose you did not notice the recent news that Dell now accepts BTC... I had no idea Dell has a drug-traffic division. I could ask why a moth is drawn to light but I won't. We now resume regular broadcasting on the LoonyToons network. Good luck with that Armageddon thingie.
He has a target of 40 on it
@@@@@Goldman Sachs: Here Are 25 Small-Cap Stocks to Buy While Goldman Sachs is cautious on small-cap stocks due to valuation concerns, the firm still finds some pockets of opportunity among individual names within the group. Goldman strategist David Kostin identified 25 small-cap stocks (companies with market capitalizations of less than $4 billion) that could offer at least a 25% upside to the Goldman price target over the next 12 months.
What about now?
@@@@@Elliott Management Corp. has amassed a more than $1 billion active stake in EMC Corp. (EMC) and is pushing the world’s biggest maker of storage computers to spin off its VMware Inc. (VMW) unit, a person familiar with the matter said. EMC should separate from its publicly-traded software unit VMWare Inc. and pursue a strategic buyer for the remainder, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the activist campaign isn’t yet public. Elliott has held talks with potential strategic buyers of EMC without VMWare for several months, and recently spoke to EMC management on the phone, the person said.
Yeah sorry i meant debt vacation, but that vacation was only for a year if i recall correctly, and coking coal futures on Dalian exchange continue to move down without any sign of a turnaround. Asset sales appear to be stalled, and the vacation will end in a few months. Sure, the banks may decide to do another holiday, but at what terms? If anything, they will put an even harder squeeze on MTL... not a pretty picture at all.
SHPG was rumored to be looking to acquire NPSP, so I'd think it's likely the new ABBV would pursue that target after the buyout closes.
Huh? A year to recover? I just looked at the MO chart back in March 2003 when that ruling was announced. The stock did indeed fall hard - from 9.10 to 6.42 - that month but it moved back up above the 9 level a short two months later.
And yes, it is only one verdict out of thousands of cases, but those cases will take decades to fully process through the courts. I think this whole Engle thing is way overblown.
That is just a plain silly ruling that will without doubt be adjusted down by a factor of 1000x in the end.
@@@@@"The jury wanted to send a statement that tobacco cannot continue to lie to the American people and the American government about the addictiveness of and the deadly chemicals in their cigarettes," said one of the woman's attorneys, Christopher Chestnut. Reynolds' vice president and assistant general counsel, J. Jeffery Raborn, called the damages in Robinson's case "grossly excessive and impermissible under state and constitutional law." "This verdict goes far beyond the realm of reasonableness and fairness, and is completely inconsistent with the evidence presented," Raborn said in a statement. "We plan to file post-trial motions with the trial court promptly, and are confident that the court will follow the law and not allow this runaway verdict to stand." The lawsuit's goal was to stop tobacco companies from targeting children and young people with their advertising, said Willie Gary, another attorney representing Robinson. "If we don't get a dime, that's OK, if we can make a difference and save some lives," Gary said.
Flexibility to use global cash for future transactions... indeed
@@@@Credit Suisse analyst Vamil Divan reiterated a Buy rating on the stock Friday, writing that "this is a very attractive deal for AbbVie and its shareholders and should drive significant long-term share price accretion. It provides some needed diversification from Humira while also delivering immediate financial benefits and most importantly, greater long-term flexibility to use global cash flows for future transactions and to return cash to shareholders."
Sweet...SHPG negotiated a breakup fee that applies even if the deal falls through because of any inversion law stopping it
@@@@@A $1.6 billion breakup fee would be paid to Shire if the acquisition isn't completed -- even if regulators block it.
True MTL is paying their bills but that is only because they got an interest vacation on a lot of that debt. If not for that, a CH11 BK filing would probably have been triggered by now.
Thanks ABBV from a SHPG shareholder. You paid us a 60% premium but you got a lot in return, including very nice growth prospects,
@@@@Separately, Shire raised its earnings guidance for the year on Friday, to low-to-mid 30 percent growth, from mid-to-high 20 percent growth
@@@@@However, he added, tax cutting was not the main objective of the Shire deal. "It's not the primary rationale for this," he told analysts on a conference call, explaining that the combined group would have leadership positions in immunology, rare diseases, neuroscience, and metabolic and liver diseases, as well as a best-in-class product development platform, a stronger pipeline and better R&D capabilities. The merged group will also have more firepower for acquisitions, he said, particularly to bolster the rare disease business, the foundations of which were built on acquisitions by Shire.
They just got it up and running and now they wanna sell it? Jeez... at least wait another cold winter and grab some more nice profits off of high gas prices... with storage levels sitting well below the 5 year average you just know they're coming.
@@@@@July 18 (Reuters) - Encana Corp , Canada's largest natural gas producer, may sell its Deep Panuke natural gas project, off the coast of Nova Scotia, by year-end, Bloomberg News reported on its website, citing unidentified sources. The company is working with financial advisers and could begin a formal sales process within months, with a deal raising as much as $2 billion completed by year-end, Bloomberg reported. Deep Panuke, 250 kilometers (155 miles) southwest of Halifax, produced 253 million cubic feet of gas per day in the first quarter, its first full quarter of operation after years of construction delays.
Looks like no. Is anyone here going long... good possibility here will be a deal at $110+ soon.
@@@@@German auto supplier ZF Friedrichshafen AG, moving to acquire TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. (TRW), has been told by lenders that financing is available for a higher all-cash bid that could value the company at as much as $13 billion, people with knowledge of the matter said. TRW rose. ZF, working with Citigroup Inc. (C), is exploring a proposal that values TRW at between $110 to $112.50 a share, said two of the people, who asked not to be identified because the matter is private. Morgan Stanley and several European banks are also advising the company and financing the deal, the people said. Talks between the two sides have accelerated, though no deal has been reached and the companies are still negotiating on the price, one person said. ZF confirmed last week that it’s in talks with TRW about an acquisition, which would create the world’s second-largest auto-parts supplier by sales -- combining a maker of steering systems and transmissions with a leading producer of car-safety technology. The closely held company had initially valued TRW at about $11 billion to $12 billion, a person familiar with the talks said last week. Now that talks are public, TRW and ZF could reach an agreement in three to four weeks to prevent management disruption and allay concerns among automakers that dislike uncertainty with larger suppliers, the people said. ZF’s Chief Executive Officer Stefan Sommer is planning to brief employees about the logic of the bid on Friday, another person said.
