Split Decision (...hmmmmm?! ) coming 18 JUNE and from there we coast into earnings 30+ days later. Funny how we have so many barking buttheads on this board but only 1.69% SHORT.......makes the naysayers pronouncing SCAM etc. sound even less potent and in fact....like they are the SCAM themselves......but hey, y'all can decide for yourselves! All merely IMHO............oh and naysayers.....find another pot to "P" in! LMAO!
F up as DIV approaches and then drops predictably, after the DIV has been paid...........who knows if this pattern continues but it seems relatively reliable of late. Meaning....a DRIP program may not be the best approach to buying more F shares......hence, ......for he or she who owns alot of F.......it's worth reviewing!
In fact one could argue since WE KNOW when the DRIP program is going to be buying more shrares for investors...that this pattern might make it cheaper to wait until the price finds its way back to the duldrums!
All IMHO and while it doesn't apply to the average shareholder.....its more my message to F leadership than to investors..............I don't like reinvesting at HIGHER PRICES and the more predictable this becomes.....the fewer big shareholders are going to want to play the game. Frankly, over the long run, this phenom is not worth losing any sleep over...and reinvesting DIVs is a GREAT WAY to get ahead.........but if you own alot! Crunch the numbers because this can also make a difference if one has a large enough position. AGAIN...out of frustration watching this nonsense.....all IMHO..............
Some DOLT has the HOTS for a strike price of 7 (see open interest figure) going all the way into Jan 2015.
This tells me there is something in the works and someone is interested in locking in every penny OVER 7 or, someone has lost ALOT of money on this stock from its very high, HIGHs year ago and is trying to squeeze their way back to even......OR we have some demented big fish trying to inflict pain on SD and SD shareholders.
If a deal is underway, then anyone w/knowledge of such is required, by law, to not disclose such to anyone, period. If there is something going on, this would explain the stubborn stock performance.
Further, sometimes when an Officer/employee/Director leaves a firm, he is required to sell all his stock depending upon the nature of the stock as well as agreements signed by employees/officers specifically addressing departure and required status of stock holdings at departure.
One other MAJOR item this well (and others) discovered USING the 3D graphing (or whatever term applies!) reveals is this....it validates the 3D data and literally provides a picture of SD's assets in the ground !
Helping to boost SD's potential value to any buyers assessment during due diligence..........IMHO....
Then for the first time...the MONEY PRINTING machine is going to turn on for SD / Shareholders!
Especially as NatGas gains MORE POLITICAL momentum which should lead to a fast-track status for export and SD will never look back.......!!
Such a move by McClendon would be called one of irony or spite!? LOL! Maybe both !
SD is CHEAP....it operates in an area Aubrey is VERY familiar with,,,it has ASSETS...disposal/ rig / and truck fleet that would greatly compliment Aubrey;s operations in the region.
Hmmmmmmmm I think it makes more sense than not ! Guess we'll see! Oh and for those wondering about Aubrey's cash.......remember, this guy built CHK from liertally 50k he and Ward put up to start the business.........................he has ALOT of fans with ALOT of MONEY.
Dear PR person.........I know it's hard to survive the endless surprises your corporation inflicts upon itself but on behalf of all the Widow Davis's of America who saw their holdings in BAC drop to a fraction from it's highs a few years back....as well as an insult of a dividend forcing all the Widow Davis's to sell assets....probably even BAC at a loss.............but this is for those who have hung in there.
You haven't issued even a word...........no dates....no amounts.no nothing so now those Widow Davis's who hung in there for so long...and their new friends who jumped on board a couple years back only to now FEEL the PAIN...that BAC seems endlessly to inflict on its own shareholders.
The question is, who is running the show at BAC....when will some semblence of normalcy take place.....and when in the _______ will shareholders be told how much and when?
On second thought, just surprise us because frankly, everytime you guys n gals give us a time frame...or amount...it changes.........EVERYTIME! This unfortunately, seems to be the ONLY THING that BAC is consistent with, missing dates/objectives given to shareholders!
You need to take the THIRD WORLD level of performance out of your operational means.....and cross back over to reaching for perfection EVERYTIME, not just when it's convenient coincidence.
One can argue about some of the purchases Zuckerberg has made but if he has proven anything, it is that he is NOT ONE to BET AGAINST. Worth reiterating....it seems Zuckerberg is AT LEAST one play ahead of the competition, analysts, and peripheral evolving sub-sectors as he adds to the FB CAMP and Arsenal !
IMHO...FB and Zuckerberg have seriously added to the depth chart with this Paypal Prez addition not to mention jumping into another new market for FB and there is no doubt FB will capture yet again, a foothold in a new monetizing sector! All IMHO.......and seriously, I would not want to be SHORT.....thought about writing calls, very happy I didn't !
I hear what you're saying....but so far, Zuckerberg has proven he is not one to bet against....it seems he is playing the game AT LEAST one play ahead of everyone else be it an ANALyst, the competition, or delving into new sub-sectors that he FITs into the FB CAMP / arsenal............
is a State of DENIAL!
ANALYSTS frozen like a deer in the headlights.....under estimating FB and the Zuckerberg Team!
It's almost like a Thank You analysts and please collect your SCALP on the way out ! LMAO !!!!
I might add......by the time MRKs HEP C app is approved or denied...there will be at least 3 players and perhaps more and at that point, PRICE enters the frey as well as time to cure.
I think the real message here is that we have conquered HEP C and there are likely more game changers on the way......hopefully GILD continues to PAVE to road while others follow. All IMHO
Agree ! The operative word for MRKs deal ref. Hep C is "COULD" shorten treatment if it works at all....and GILD's status...."IS" working....and earning while CURING.......! IMHO !
Seems the tide is changing and (the inverse of) the perfect storm that has haunted SD's stockprice for the last 5 years or so is finally giving way to a meaningful upward trend!
Seems SHORTs better get ready to be monetarily scalped with PURPOSE! I love the smell of PANIC in the morning! It smells like............well, it smells like VICTORY.....................which seems to be headed our way, finally!
Thank you Sir for a job well done and creating a once in a lifetime investment opportunity within the AUTO industry sector!
Thanks too, to F employees! Nice ride!
I own two Ford's!
The SHORTING of MoMo's unfortunately included some big names, GILD being obe of them. Currently there is a 6% hedge on GILD.....seems someone is drowing in their SHORT position and its likely to get worse.
GILD did 2.5 BILLION in Sovaldi in its first quarter......the second quarter is likely to PANTs SHORT hedgies with an even stronger showing as more begin to adopt/pay for Sovaldi treatment afterall, it is a CURE, not a treatment in the final analysis.
I think GILD begins leading the market again as it did so effectively when it was wrongly painted as a HOLLOW MoMo stock............this is a company that prints money and its earning are expected to more than DOUBLE over the next 24+ months.
............and someone SHORTED for a TRADE and is now caught waiting for the markets walls to tumble to bail them out? Sorry boys, the ECB just rendered a NEGATIVE DEPOSIT INTEREST RATE which means GULP! Open the barn doors willey! We're gonna start loaning businesses and individuals....can you say, SPIKED GROWTH like spiked punch?
Have a drink SHORTs...you might as well enjoy it while you can still afford it!
All IMHO........it hurts getting stuck in the mud but its not like the door was'nt open in the low 70's...........
