You mean the VETERAN, West Point Grad who once outside TRIED to comply with the order to drop the gun and when he reached to do so was shot and killed by some ignorant keystone wild west cops?
I mean the AMBUSH was set up OUTSIDE waiting for him. Try taking a view from a different angle of what happened. While true what happened INSIDE the store brought all the heat but what happend OUTSIDE was measured, deliberate and when one gets orders that conflict, how can he be right. This guy was SHOT in cold blood without posing a threat to anyone. Conveniently, the stores ecurtyi tapes caught nothing, nothing inside or outside, gee wonder how that happened?
Meantime, someone who as you say, could have probably used some help got shot and killed by some barney fife level intellects. Wittnesses are clear that more than one directive was issued.....and when he was APPARENTLY trying to obey, he was SHOT/KILLED at about POINT BLANK range.
But hey, apparently ALL the EXCESSIVE FORCE and WRONGFUL Death lawsuits against the Vegas area PDs are wrong and there is no such thing as excessive force or wrongful death from the end oif a cop's barrel. Look it up! Vegas PDs are the WILD, WILD West where there are no rules. They are NEVER WRONG! How does that happen? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
One more thing Wi.....if SDs news is really upward and the stock travels upward what kind of message would it send if these folks sold after that news? Then I think your masked passive aggressive fear aroma might have more meaning than now, BEFORE earnings!
Of course in fairness to you, if the surprise is bad, then you might have some skin on your theory but I'm going to bet you are not just wrong, but WAY WRONG! Just IMHO....again...slapping you in the ____ because you stuck it out for all to see!
I could be wrong................but I'm guessing I'm not. VOTE with your money Wi ! SHORT it right here!?? No ?
Use your imagination and answer you're own question! LMAO........a quick scan of insider acitvity since 1 JAN '14 seems to indicate the opposite trend you seem to imply. or did you want to deceive everyone?
This time of year, selling is not uncommon especially for a stock that has shown a nice price increase over the last year in light of the fact that it has had it's ups and downs. Getting back to 'this time of year" I have seen TAXES, COLLEGE Funding, buying that summer dream home, or paying off debts rule the day more than anyone heading for the hills!
In fact Wi, lets face it, this selling in no way even comes close to a fire sale.......so what would your real point be? We all know you HATE SD, you must have lost alot of money on this stock to be so "occupied" by it. I will guess you milk the teet with these movement up and down.....so why not be happy and count your ducats?
All IMHO since you decided to hang your butt out the window!
Hey Invesco, having worked for one of the fund groups you ultimately absorbed, don't worry, I won't admit it to anyone.....but I have to ask......who is the Marketing Milleniell Idiot that approved the commercial with four brokers verbally stepping on one another while apparently trying to advise an investor?
Somehow the message I have EXTRACTED from this commercial is INVESCO = ANNOYING.
Not to worry, I just turn off the TV, or the sound, or just flip channel.............of course I am probably the only one who does so........I mean otherwise, you wouldn't be accomplishing anything with this ad! Right? LMAO!
SERIOUSLY? This AD walked through the vetting process? Who is your marketing firm?
Here's a better idea.....if you STOPPED putting this crud on TV, you could probably lower your management fees and make your clients even more money!
Nahhhhhh......what purpose would that serve?
It is beyond ingorant unless this effort is PURELY POLITICAL in an effort to quiet your own constituents in which case it is again, POLITICAL.
You KNOW the numbers. You KNOW what it costs Medicare to treat these ailing HEP C patients for years and often decades.
So please grab a pencil and piece of paper (w/eraser since I KNOW you'll MAKE MISTAKES) and subtract the SOVALDI cost from the LONG, DRAWN OUT existing TREATMENT verses todays CURE, and I think the MATH should speak for itself.
Not to upstage GILD's response which I might add, has already been addressed WEEKS ago.....but I have to ask given todays ECONOMY and State of the UNION how it is that we have ANY SENATOR with time to complain about prices? You IDIOTS should be complaining about your OWN SPENDING debacle imposed on we TAX PAYERS who it seems, number fewer and fewer each day between retirement, US Departure, or conversion to yet ANOTHER ENTITLEMENT recipient.
Its a CURE...whcih is much better than a long, drawn out, expensive treatment. Any questions you legislative THUGs?
rlday2010....you're welcome and THANK YOU as well ! Have a good weekend!
It is amazing how we all seem able to ignore history......and thus suffer repeating it over, and over, and over again.
A few dynamics at work here....Saudi/ and Russia want high oil prices to line their pockets but, they also want lower prices to force production pressure on the fast growing US presence in the sector with it's NG slingshot at it's side!
Meanwhile, it is IMO, no coincidence that Israel is under rocket attack....and the Islamic World is reaching a fever pitch AGAINST the West. primarily the US and Israel...but you can bet our Allies in Europe are on full alert as well. All due to this CLOWN in N. Iraq who has somehow perfected the hijacking of a religion that justifies KILLING all and any who are not believers. Welcome to the 13th Century.
When Russia sends jet Fighters, the US sends security and advisor assets......(and WHO!??), Iran is in step with Russia and the US aimed at ridding the WORLD of this twisted scurge occupying N. Iraq......well, this should be a VERY LOUD and CLEAR MESSAGE to the WORLD that there is someting BEYOND ROUTINE going on here.
So while OIL prices may be subject to a softening floor.......you'd better raise the ceiling a few notches above the 120 range because the world is one WMD (or escalated Visual slaughter) away from TOTAL WAR and as this environment unfolds....and the West and its new found friends coordinate their efforts to contain this extreme form of Islam, oil prices will surge out of pure fear. In fact, just alittle more production interference in the Middle East is going to have the same effect.... . As a side note, someday, the West will realize there truly is just one solution to extremism and its not easy, its not pretty, but it is the time tested ONLY SOLUTION and I'll let everyone fill in the blank on this one!
The problem is simple, too many World Leaders want to "see it all change into their own view of the world in their lifetimes" and unfortunately, the rest of us have to sit here and watch or, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
Cowen must be SHORT or have some big fish whining about the merger talk. What Cowen TOTALLY misses w/LO is the E-Cig sector which is growing FASTER than the tobacco industry EVER DID! Why? E-Cigs are perceived as giving existing smokers that same ESCAPE/BOOST that tobacco gives with fewer health risks. Literally millions of smokers have/will migrate to E-Cigs......................AND...new smokers will likely START and STAY w/E-Cigs fully knowing the risks of using real tobacco are FOR SURE, REAL.
Oh Cowen, please come forth and explain your views to the "Court" of investors!
It seems those in NEED of volatility are doing everything they can to YELL ...FIRE in a crowded market theater! Yet despite the ealry sell off flavored by very low volume.....it seems as the sun rises so does the market once again!
I think GILD blows even high estimates out of the water and the forecast echoes much the same going forward. Oh and who cares about Portugal's bank issue or Italy's situation? Two true satelite economies that still have not really turned the corner YET we see for instance, AUTO sales clipping higher in the EU and this indicator alones says money is starting to flow through the economic veins of the EU.
Someone needs to grab the Traders and "B: slap some sense into their one channel means of existence.
Hey CNBC.....BA ZING! Told you this was a HOLLOW sell-off...............there is a dynamic that wall Street seems to be missing and that is as follows.....the BOOMER generation is retiring at a clip of roughly 10k PER DAY....meaning now that the PIPELINE is full and RELIABLE for as far out as the eye can see, that the BOOMER generation is going to DO FOR MARKETS, what it did for breakfast cereal, hotdogs, and hamburgers and that is.....................PROVIDE CONSTANT ACTIVITY GROWTH for the markets via ETFs, FUNDS, and a GROWING number of STOCK PICKERS espeically in light of such oppressively LOW INTERST RATES.
Check your volume and remember.....the hedgies and etf's have now taken volume OUT of the market and it is obvious when they are in or moving a position.....so continueing to IGNORE this NEW DYNAMIC to our markets is.....well, do so at your own risk.
While grossly UNDEREDUCATED on investing, the BOOMER generation still represents the overall BEST EDUCATED in our markets......and this will only increase as folks begin to take investing their hard earned money very seriously. All IMHO but again, a dynamic clearly ignored by Wall Street.
The next time your system is down, have the class to announce such and save your phone reps the rearend chewing as well as the worry YOU and your minions cast upon 10's of thousands of folks who USE YOUR SERVICE.
Not to mention those who may have wanted to buy/sell, or otherwise innitate a transaction of sorts.
We are not a THIRD WORLD NATION but with performance like this we sure are trying to become one.
Today AMTD was absolute trash at the opening. Do your job, we pay you to do it oh and don;t think for a minute that subscribers are not looking for alternatives. Did you all know that Vanguardoffers brokerage accounts and trades are 7 bucks!? Of course it is a less nimble system...IE no before market purchases and limited after market flexibility. For what it's worth.
Not to rain on OUR parade but this fracking nonsense is gaining speed, in Oklahoma no less. That's the bad news. the good news is that if indeed fracking is causing increased seismic events it seems only certain drill sites are being attributed to increased activity where others clearly are not.
Meaning, if there is a connection then there is already a solution....of course transporting said waste water to different sites will cost more but this also MAKES SD's oil services division even more valuable in light of a possible MLP !
It seems science is on this matter and of course, the world will know the split second any connection can be made so there's going to be alot of noise.......if it comes to this however, the industry is very good at self policing so i suspect there's alot of hustle going on behind the scenes for alternative solutions! For what it's worth and all merely IMHO.....
IMHO...I mean CELG was cheap at it's high! TODAY we hear from AA and gee, that new aluminum body F150 data should begin to appear in this earnings...if not, then certainly some very good forward expectations!
Some experts are calling for a return to DOUBLE DIGIT earnings in the 2nd qtr.........I think they will be proven right and I think we see even better forecasts through the end of the year.
Oh and CELG? Well.....I think people still need MEDs! Especially some of the life changing MEDs CELG has created...with more coming round the turn! Contrary to what W.Street traders want, stocks usually price based on forward expectations...CELG is cheap, very cheap in this respect but then too..............CELG would be a very nice addition to some big Pharma looking to expand its own depth/pipeline! All IMHO !
IMHO......I mean come on! we're into earnings...some are calling for a double digit earnings rampup by US Corporations in the 2nd qtr....AA starts us off today and gee, guess what.....? The NEW Ford F150 all aluminum body orders should put AiA into a new and higher orbit! LMAO! AA usually earmarks much of what is to come outside of certain sectors. BIO and TECH...as well as SOCIAL being 3 big sectors AA usually doesn't impact but hey, who knows!? I sure don't!
Oh and the oil/ng sell off over the last few days........mere profit taking in my view because this IRAQI WACKEY trying to take over thw world is going to (help) sell more oil than anyother wacko in recent decades! all IMHO.........but this overnight JERKOID like selling pace is HOLLOW at best! IMHO.........
Agree, however, it seems the same "activity" has been used about 2-3 weeks before expiration over the last few months so...it may prove to be nothing.
On the otherhand, it may well be a smoke signal of what someone BIG thinks or somehow KNOWs is happening. I wish the "7" strike was not the POLE around which all this activity was buzzing....8 would be better....I fear a 7 strike as a basis for whomever the whale is means only 8-9 bucks on a buyout range........and yes, I would take it BUT....I like 10 or better near term...and if well production continues upward...so does my desired buyout price...........................................which I might add.....may well be the impetus for whomever might be looking at SD to BUY NOW (while it's cheap)!
"If".... again, we are seeing the foundation of a buyout ....today. All IMHO of course............frankly however.....I think todays option activity is merely a repeat echo of previous options expirations windows...............I hope I'm wrong but think I'm right!
BlunderBAMA does not ask for nor listen to advice from anyone. He has no clue of the power of compromise. Instead he rides it his way or no way. He truly does hold big government bordering socialism if not at some point outright communism. Bill Ayers being a confidant of his is all anyone needs to know to validate this socialist idiots true intentions.
OBAMA is profoundly inadequate to be in charge of anything or anyone. He is EGO driven and DESPITE his shortcomings, it seems the economy might be crawling out of the hole he helped put it into thanks to no help from this CLOWN, BlunderBAMA.
He is in WAY OVER HIS HEAD skill wise. Inept, incompetent, biased if not outright racist, confrontational where he should be accommodating and compromising.....this CLOWN does not understand the DYNAMIC of a split House and the opportunity this brings. Instead, he is whining, threatening...taunting....he is not only the least capable President, he is clearly the most IMMATURE as well. WEAR IT OBAMA......you are the one who created it.
It has been fun to watch the LIB Mesiah crumble......though he has done far worse as the EMPIRE does now truly CRUMBLE...................
