The biggest DEEKS I ever met in my life were UNION THUGS working the PORTS. A bunch of weak backboned babies masquerading as adults getting paid premium wages.
I mean one union isn't talking to the other so the two idiot groups hold up the entire process. These guys are making between 35 and 95 bucks an hour and there ain;t hardly a one of em worth it. The PORTS Unions are inbred idiots who BUY there job from dear old Dad and if your of any ehtnic or race that differs, they won;t even think about hiring you. THE MOST RACIALLY DISCRIMINATORY GROUPS in the US are in the UNIONS. PERIOD.
So between the DISCRIMINATION and the INCOMPETENCE, I have a hard time wanting anything for unions but pain.
By the way, safety warning on viagra, DO NOT FLUSH down the toilet..............cause the toilet seat won't stay down anymore!
WRONG! I never said Union workers didn't work. I have family in unions. Oh and while SOME CEO pay is outrageous, that is coming down. Noteworthy is that a CEO can be fired tomorrow, a lazy , incompetent union workers can't.
CORRUPTION, the GREED of UNION LEADERSHIP, the INCOMPETENCE of UNION LEADERSHIP is evident time after time throughout union Labors history. Union involvement with organized crime is acknowledged time after time throughout UNION LABOR history.
ALL LABOR works hard in my view. Been there, done that. So for you pathological union loyalists who think UNION LABOR is the ONLY hard working group in the US, I say you're full of self stroking______ (fill in the blank, statrs w/letter S and ends w/letter T, and there is an H and an I in there somewhere!).
UNION LEADERSHIP should be targeted by the IRS, law enforcement, and frankly, Union Members who are being respresented by a group of self serving idiots.
How many high level Union bosses got fired during the Auto bankruptcy? I only ask because they are the ones who had no clue how a business is run, what a balance sheet is, the effects of commodity prices, competeition...etc.
UNION WORKERS should require their representatives to at least BE EDUCATED.
Beside being a total waste of oxygen, OBAMA proves that a FOOL can indeed rise well beyond his own level of INCOMPETENCE.
Interesting take, I LIKED Siri until Liberty got it! Many made ALOT of money of SIRI from the .05 to 4 as you say.....I missed it but did manage to get in and out numerous times from the .30 cent range on up!
SIRI is to radio what a match is to two rubbing sticks when it comes to starting a fire. 3D technology on the other hand has one limitation, the HUMAN BRAIN. In otherwords, we can 3D PRINT, whatever we want!
Its merely a matter of figuring out, the way to do it and I have every confidence that over time, we will ! Its in our DNA !
3D printing is a VERY FAST MOVING TARGET with new applications/abilities being discovered/announced almost daily as is evidenced by the big players consolidating thru purchase, the new comers! This disruption is the first revolutionary spill over from the tech revolution brought on by the internet /pc/communications/and security movement of the last 3 decades! AND WHY NOT! It makes sense! If we can make it better, cheaper, and quicker, WHY NOT! AND that's where we're headed! IMHO !!!!
F has been the red haired step sister for the last year as GM converted itself from being Government Motors to becoming General Motors once again. So what GM! Tax payers lost BILLIONs on the deal and now your union thugs want into VW? R U kidding me!? The epitomy of corruption, incompetence, and greed is what unions represent.
Back to F........way ahead of the other US auto makers regarding pension funding! While F has a ways to go, it is out from under the woodshed sometime over the next 12-24 months! At that point, there is nothing to hold back F !
A handful (actually more) of new models in 2014 along side the continued conversion to MULTI-FUEL vehicles that will use gasoline OR NATGAS....and perhaps (don't hold your breath) an EV that makes sense from an overall economical point of view which would appeal to the masses thru both cost, range, performance, and battery life/replacement .....well, the future looks bright!
I think a DOUBLE as implied by the Seeking Alpha article is far more likely for say F, than for GM. All IMHO of course!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Hmmm, I appreciate and understand your view. I like to think I always keep some powder dry and I have alittle more available after scaling back some over the last 2 months. However, consensus earnings from 2014 to 2015 are about a 47% increase.....and the price based on the forward PE reflects as much.
However, with the backdrop of a growing sector which represents a disruptive technology that is so new with constantly improving application and capability.....coupled with names like GE and GOOG (and a growing number of others) who are gravitating to the new means of manufacturing, well, one might say that for the first time since the migration of manufacturing OUT of the US, it sppears we are on the cusp of a game changer for the economy and, the way we make things. While this will take years to hit critical mass, the path is clear and there is enough room for more than one winner, to be sure. However, the big players today will continue to buyout new innovations just as DDD has been doing.
I think the ANTICIPATION premium the 3D sector has gained is no different than the BIO sector and frankly, any sector historically speaking that offered up so much hope and infinite possibilities!
TESLA, GOOG, AMZN,NFLX and many more, are no where near as innovative in application as 3D has the potential to become and. is indeed showing us with each new app that 3D tackles!
Bubble? Not based on forward expectations using consensus growth rate!
Everyone should ALWAYS keep some powder dry for sales! All IMHO....and......thanks for sharing your view! Boar
I don't blame you! Afterall, its your money!
Since Faber is your mentor, I was wondering if you happen to know what he said about PCLN? NFLX? GOOG? Or, any host of others priced for growth, not earnings? You know, like AMZN?
I'm sure happy DDD would have BEAT on this last earnings EXCEPT they poured money back into GROWTH!
But hey, I use only my money! It is however, interesting that you assume Faber to be correct when he compares the 3D sector to the dotcom era! I remember a whole host of dotcom'ers that never made a penny and had no real business model other than launching over the internet. It seems to me that DDD is actually making money!
Why isn't HPQ about to enter the 3D arena? Yes, they are! Hmmmmm and I enjoyed the "My Mom" GE commercial on the Olympics, where GE is depcited doing many things, one of which was manufavturing an aircraft engine using a 3D platform! Hmmm......maybe Faber is right!
All IMHO ......but Sir, or Mam, I disagree with both YOU and Faber! But again, its only IMHO....................
Buying my second dishwasher sinse 2010 has me wondering how auto's, smartphones etc. can last so long compared to a simple dishwasher!?
Bought this second KENMORE.....and was reminded it comes without the necessary plumbing (water lines) or electrical power cord! Both are sold as separate kits.
Thats like buying a new car at the local dealer and then being told, the purchase doesn't include tires!
So please don't allow KENMORE to start making autos! Cars last ALOT LONGER than dishwashers! I don;t know why, but they do! It didn't use to be that way. Hmmmmmmmmmmm is this some kind of created revenue center!? My highend Kenmore last less than 4 years so i bought a cheapoid this time, guess we'll see if it last half that time or better.
KENMORE, please stop HOSING your own customers with the penny-ante nonsense. Kenmore use to stand for quality. What is it that you, KENMORE think it stands for now? I have some ideas but...I'll let you all think of those things I could say but won't and you'll immediately know where I'm coming from!
Hmmmmm.......if that image doesn't wake up the critics/naysayers, than it looks like they are going to miss the train departure again!
3D and namely DDD, is a definite disruption technology and as time marches on, the capabilities will march forward as well! All IMHO.........
been a VERY CHEAP foreray back into the fastfood sector.....you could have continued to seel stores to franchisees as WEN management currently is doing...then KO could have helped LAUNCH WEN overseas!
WEN is the most innovation burger rest. today...flexibility on menu moving in stride with the consumers ever changing taste..........as well as use WEN to launch ALL KO beverages in a fastfood environment!
Gee, that 1.2 billion could have bought a bigger piece of WEN than it did of GMCR !!! All IMHO....
AGREE! COKE, the soft drink, is DIRT CHEAP today on an inflation adjusted basis compared to a 6 pack back in the 1970's! YET, fewer people are drinking carbonated sugar packed softdrinks than EVER!
The BOOMERS are gravitating away from softdrinks for health reasons and their kids and grandkids are drinking bottled water/juices/energy drinks. Of course KO knows this already! It is the only other revenue platform KO has.....other beverages!
So maybe KO BUYS OUT GMCR....well GMCRs business model was on the edge of implosion!
This might prove to be a fad but after the cost of the machine/the syrup/ and the CO2 bottles.......KO on the shelf at Walmart is going to start looking REAL CHEAP!
So in the home....another small appliance wasting aleady limited counter space....to be used maybe for a month...then stored in the garage or basement until this summers cookouts/b-Day partys............but seriously, little more than a coming and then going, FAD.
Hardcore soda drinkers will like it until they see the price difference between the store shelf purchased softdrinks and the in home made softdrinks.
Sorry...but SODA is a DYING drink.....this is WHY KO is seeking innovations in the first place.......I think this is going to turn out to be a HUGE waste of time and money.....KO is looking into the ABYSS....and it sees nothing.......and now...it is closer than ever before, to that ABYSS.
I remember as a kid, going to my more senior BOOMER AUNTs house in the late 60's early 70's when it was COOL to buy soft drink syrup and bottled soda water and make your own soft drink at home. I did it once.
SOFT DRINK sales are DYING on the vine......I'm not sure how broadly this idea will appeal to the masses other than to be yet another GIZMO bought and paid for only to be stored in the garage/attic/ or basement! Maybe at an inhome BAR as a discussion piece of "remember when"?
In the end, after paying for a TINY CO2 bottle that lasts MAYBE A MONTH...for ONE PERSONs use 3-4 times per day...thats roughly 240.00 per year just for CO2....(which is ALOT of coke off the shelf at Walmart)......I see this as nothing more or less, than a FAD!
If my forecast is WRONG...then it really won't take much for SBUX to mimmick the success through its already loyal legions! ALL IMHO of course!
Simply put, SODA sales are literally dying on the vine. KO itself has moved into the water/juice sector iof the bev market! Whle true that the HARDCORE soda drinkers might want to make soda at home.....the truly hardcore ALREADY ARE!
So what does this move bring? Traditional soda syrup and THATS IT !
I think this is a BIG MISTAKE for KO/GMCR/DNKN because I see it as a mere FAD appeal and little more. These soda machines will be stored 90% of the year so as NOT TO TAKE up anymore counter space and might land on an in home BAR or in a cupboard to be used at B-Days/ PARTYS/PICNICs, COOKOUTS...and THATS IT IMO !
Burning cash at GMCR and KO bodes well for SBUX who already makes HIGHEN D SOFT DRINKS in store!
If I'm wrong, then it won't take SBUX much to mimmick the success!
SBUX already serves high-end soft drinks! In fact between SBUX purchase of the fench pastry operation and its foray into the TEA MARKET.......I would say what KO/GMCR/ and DNKN are doing is merely keeping up with the Jones's OOPS...I mean SBUX!
If the softdrink market takes off......SBUX's LEGIONS of faithful will probably opt fo the highend soft drink verses KO at GMVR locations. Further...SBUX can mimmick this move by selling home soda softdrink machines..............but frankly.......home made soda's are NOTHING NEW! Back in the 60's/70's it was a coming of age boomer thing to buy whatever syrup they wanted and then buy soda water! LMAO!
Soda at home? Seriously? Set-up a pour station...then merely ask the local CO2 delievery guy to bring a tank of CO2 by...make sure you're up to code..whatever that is in your local.....and you now have a CHEAP CO2 consuming machine that will last MONTHS and MONTHS!
the price SODA and this new venture will charge for CO2 is THEFT! I mean a tiny CO2 bottle at Bed/bath/beyond costs 20 bucks (incl. deposit) ! It might last a month! ROBBERY! LOL!
Anyways...on a serious note....anyone who ever wanted to make their own sodas at home has been able to do so. Hence, whatever machine KO and GMCR come up with...it will get used at least once....maybe even for a month...then at picnics and cookouts...then back to the cupboard to be forgotten about until the next event!
LMAO! Thats my view and I'm sitck'in to it ! All IMHO............
Copperman all the way! LMAO!
Naysayers...i hope you are mere traders.....if on the otherhand you are longtime SHORTs....or, amateuer SHORTs......then reap the wind cause I believe its coming!
All IMHO ! But hey....we been at this same dance for years now and frankly.....SD has turned into a "SHOW ME" stock and well.......with new LDRSHIP....SD is starting to SHOW ME/US! Again, all IMHO !
Boar 31 this is Boar 292, SHOT OVER.......SHOT OVER!..................... Splash OVER! .......Splash OVER!
Boar 292, this is Boar 31, ........target destroyed!
OOPS! Sorry, KEYING out loud! LMAO!
totally agree! CHK is holding the hot hand to the futre, NG ! I don;t care if prices come down form here....in fact, I would plan on seeing NG prices come down.......and then slowly continue to graduate upwards as PROLIFERATION of NG usage combined with EXPORT of NG...........I can taste it right now! LMAO!
Sell off is way over done! Book value at 20+......worldwide energy demand climbing....NG replacing coal.....being adopted in the auto//and soon the rail.....as well as some construction equipment....with THE WORLD as the back drop? R U Kidding me!?
I LOVE NG.....and CHK is in my quiver! All IMHO of course but the MACRO..........combined w/CHK LDRSHPs desire for cost controls....while INCREASING CASHFLOW...PRODUCTION RATES.....I mean its hard to find such a scenario involving the megatrend of switching energy reliance to favor NG ! Again...all IMHO....
Sentiment: Strong Buy
is a real company with real earnings. It represents a WAVE of disruptive technology that will revolutionize the manufacturing process across many industry. Precision, perfection, designs that exceed current engineeed products that can;t be built using existing manuf. processes!
Naysayers, its not worth arguing! Go ask GOOG, GE, and a host of other corporations who have aligned themselves with 3D technology, namely, DDD.
When I hear earnings results were effected by PUTTING MONEY BACK INTO the business......well,........sign me up!
