June 30, 2008 the stock price was 15.44. Now it is $8+. I wonder where all the dividend money came from. Can you spell PONZI? Sorry, if you can't understand that they're paying investors with their own money and calling if a high dividend rate then you might not understand "PONZI". Please google it and try to understand what is happening.
On July 8, 2013 closed at 61.24, on July 9, 2013 closed at 58.00. within a few weeks it came right back. DGX is a fantastic buy; real cheap. I just bought a ton of it. Solid group of customers (human beings in a market where you can choose a company, but you can't choose not to buy the product or service. It will be right back. Sometimes I think negative guidance is a ploy to buy stock at a cheap price. Watch for the big bounce.
EQY will act just BRE. It's been dumped and pretty soon it'll be bought back and rise sharply. I don't know who does this, but then again I don't care. Look for it much higher than 22.
BRE rises and falls in a fairly tight range. The company keeps setting new highs dips and then sets a new high. Good keeper, also good stock for trading in a range.
All of the statements in this thread would give one reason to complain and even try to get the employees fired. However, for this board the question remains, does any of this have an impact on their business or profit. The answer seems obviously no because people that buy the stock, for the most part, do not live there and will probably never consider living there. Please do not attempt to make the argument that people will avoid living there because there are other criteria for deciding to move there that minimizes comments such as the ones you've made.
Sept 28, 2010 - price was 25.01. Nov 14, 2013 - price 15.33. They've been paying investors with their own funds. Another fund riding the tide to oblivion. The quicker it is gone, the better.
You might want to follow the price trends over a longer period of time than you are apparently using to form your opinion. If you'e been following the ETFs for a year, you would reach the conclusion that you've reached, but there have been reasons (interest rate anticipation) why this has occurred. You might want to learn a little bit more about statistics than you seem to currently know.
I spent 1/2 hour on the phone trying to talk with someone about when they would be declaring a dividend this month for GHI. This company just does not care. No one to speak with, no one to complain to. The just stonewall you. It was a fairly cheap lesson for me. I will never do business with UBS again. I'll unload GHI as soon as it is economically feasible to do so.
The ex-dividend date is October 4. The record date is for all purposes irrelevant. And like day follows night, KCAP should reach a high somewhere between 9.22 and 9.42 in the next 4 days (by Friday 4PM).
I think I understand your way of thinking. Any statement that disagrees with your opinion is immediately twisted and incorrect. At what price do you issue an apology or is the word apology not in the domain of your vocabulary? Sorry, I should not have used the word domain; I'll try to keep the words I use to 4th grade level.
The price drop has occurred for many funds since the public, gullible as they are, believes that interest rates will rise. Eventually, after small rises, realization will set in and these ETFs will rise again to the levels they were before. Large drops will mean large rises.
Look at the volume at the open. It appears that as long as the SEC does not enforce their own sell short rules, a few can dominate the market. I'm sure that you will see a similar volume spike at open for a multitude of ETFs.
Sorry I brought up arithmetic; probably over your head. Sure 10 cents here and 10 cents there never adds up to anything. It's a good thing you have an open mind. Wouldn't want to talk about repeated profits versus occasional losses and the concept of expected value built on probabilities. No sense having a discussion here. Talking to a fool is a complete waste of time. I'm going to take a loss on this one because I expect to hit my downside limit. Happens sometimes. However, a fool would try to generalize based on a specific case, so I think I know what you will write next. Don't bother, I've dealt with closed minds before; your problem is deeper than our differences.
Same post as last time. Did you do a cut and paste? The science is sound although the company does overspend. I'm in it short term hoping for the breakthrough. People like yourself should not be allowed to use stem cell discoveries if they should become terminally ill. Too bad ,though, that this cannot happen. Reminds me of senators that voted against funding under Bush and then changed their voting shortly after. Seems that their wife or grandchild needed treatment. Just curious; Are you a staunch extreme right conservative Republican?
Wow you sound like a real expert. Do you think everyone invests to make money by watching a stock double and triple? Does the sequence 1.80, 1.90, 1.80,1.90, 1.80, 1.90, ... mean anything to you? Maybe you can relate to 1.62, 1.72, 1.62, 1.72, 1.62, 1.72, ... Not yet, hmm, maybe you will learn, maybe not. I'm guessing not.
You forgot to thank me for furnishing you with a soapbox. I understand your concerns, but why not post them yourself instead of posting them as a reply to my point and request for additional information. With your viewpoint, why are you even on this board? When I post a comment posing a question looking for information, I would really appreciate not seeing comments like yours. If I sound annoyed it's because I am. Since I have T-mobile service (the worst that there is), I could not access your comment on my phone and had to go upstairs to read information that was a reply to my question. I read your comment, which has nothing to do with my question and would appreciate if you would stay off of threads that I create unless you have information pertaining to the subject at hand.
The June 2013 press release mentioned "Allyson Gage, Ph.D., has joined as Senior Director of Clinical Development. " I found this interesting. I don't know Dr. Gage personally and I'm not overly familiar with her work, however, her recent papers are studies of drug interaction with a patient's mental stability as related to schizophrenia and alcohol ingestion. I was not aware that STEM was researching stem cells and their interaction with alcohol and depression, but if they are any positive announcement will make the stock price soar. Does anyone have additional information on these areas? I'm just wondering if Dr. Gage was hired specifically to lead research into alcohol dependence, depression and schizophrenia.
