Once again, SHAREHOLDERS are getting KICKED in the , well, you know where and BAC gets yet another very early 2016 Christmas gift via market volatility. Yes, the P-P-Performance of the stock price is SAVED byu the market volatility giving BAC leadership the cover they need to huddle behind the smoke and drag this thing out HOPING for a positive change.....in yet another year, or two, or ten.
Meanwhile while watching the Share Price OXIDIZE.....once again, the DIV is embarrassingly low at a nickle per quarter.
BREAK THIS PIG up, spin off M.L., sell existing under performing mortgages..........trash Wash,-Mutual assets.and break the BANK up for regional competitors to add to their own banking portfolios.
PETER, Peter, peter.............you are a WONDERFUL example of how Career Politicians have RUINED our nation at any and all cost. ANY and ALL private, for profit entities SHOULD LEAVE CA. if they are not making money. YOU SIR, are supposed to be helping BUILD a BRIDGE between Public and Private and YOU HAVE and like always, ARE FAILING.
COme over to RENO, DOLT! We'll take you out on a desert safari, introduce you to JAKE NO SHOULDERS, the SNAKE , you can play with him until he is tired and when he bights you, we'll call in a med-evac and get you to some distant hospital and you'll be able to see for yourself how well JOKEBAMA CARE works!
Of course this would be far more effective a first hand experience for you if we did it in Death Valley! Problem is, EVERYONE WHO CAN AFFORD TOO...is moving out of California because of the FALSE PROFIT like promises that YOU so KNOQINGLY and therefore, WRONGFULLY, defend!
I brought JAKE the SNAKE up to emphasize for all the. the uselessness of the SNAKE OIL spewed by YOU and your Fearless Leader, OBAMAJOKE !
Funny how YOU, with ZERO experience owning a business FOR PROFIT....dealing with the avalanche of regulations, complex and ever changing tax codes HAVE NO CLUE about CREATING necessary INTERFACE with Public/Private interests have been given so much responsibility. It's as thought the PATIENTS NOW RUN the leftist created asylum which was once called the UNITED STATES.
E #$%$ to the Nth you unedumacated LOSER!
Standard operating procedures.... . The Kietzke store in Reno NV is a class "B" store size wise, it carries between 3k and 5k fewer lines than the new/bigger stores. This store just went through an interior re-organization of aisles etc.
Well it is a Wednesday, 10:00 AM and there are 3 cashiers at work. The line wait is 15 to 20 minutes, the manager, the Gal (who wears that head cover) is on the phone the entire time, inside the customer service counter. Needless to say, anyone who bought ice cream or something similar now has a reason for concern. True, it is likely the product is perfectly okay and besides, maybe this is a risk worth taking on the part of WMT.
Well, we could all drive south to the big new WMT but why bother, there is a WINCO between the two stores. Could drive north and/or West...or even East and hit another newer, bigger WMT store but there is also a WINCO and two COSTCO's. Not that everyone can get there but, most can.
Perhaps the smaller, older WMT stores are allowed to serve their customers with a lower/slower sense of urgency, I don't know. Or hey, maybe this was the so called, "perfect storm" of retail !
Either way, WMT, you have earned 3rd place now, I will only visit ANY of your stores when I have NO OTHER CHOICE or if I am in a hurry. While I don;t speak for Costco or WInco............I'm sure they must love the customers you steer there way. I am in a bit of a different situation than most in that we live in a bit of an extended Family circumstance...hence I do ALOT of shopping WEEKLY.
Not that it matters...I mean what's one customer right? Problem is, NO ONE was very happy with the wait......and that puts about 30 of us at the 3 registers......yes there is a self checkout.....which is great for small items, or a few SMALL Items............
or "if I'm in a hurry" ! NOT ! Though the drive is close, the line and wait justifies driving alittle further to a store WHERE even MANAGEMENT opens a resgister when the lines are too long! Buh BYE, WMT !
dwt...LOL! How original! Here's a better idea, don't read my posts if you are not happy with them. Oh and also, MANY, MANY BAC shareholders share my view on BAC performance so, you should live in your world of happiness and IGNORE we who criticize what deserves being criticized.
It must be hard to be the GATE KEEPER of the Yahoo Invest. board policing up BAC comments you disagree with !
No, it's a value PRISON! Break it up, give shareholders the REAL VALUE of this combined comedy of errors and place the logo and memory in the Smithsonian.............afterall, the ONLY interested party associated with BAC that has NOT BEEN rewarded is the shareholder. The FED , the Treasury, Mr "M", the former twisted CEO of Wash Mutual, many Exec types at Merrill (though Merrill faces growing attrition rates as I understand it) , have all gotten theirs.................while shareholders are required to continue to ASSUME the POSITION and expect what ever comes while symbolicaly holding their ankles.
Okay, is it the FED? Why don't we HEAR any verbal frustration from BAC? Or talk of the over regulation by FED? Where is the impetus for the FED to open the door for BAC to increase buy backs and the DIV?
I mean to refresh everyones memory. we were actually PROMISED years ago....a DIV increase which took, if memory serves, no less than 3 years after the promise was made and the increase though large in percentage gain, was still an unheard of fraction of total EPS.
I don't HEAR a blank-blank WORD from the banking industry on being over regulated nor, concerning the incompetence of those doing the regulating.
GOV agencies are about as effective as hiring a person to be a BUSINESS TEACHER, that has NEVER BEEN A BUSINESS OWNER! Or better yet, hiring a MATH TEACHER that has done NOTHING but get a teaching degree in MATH but no real life experience in conveying.thus motivating students to LEARN and take advantage of excelling in MATH!
Oops.....that's right...we actually do that in edumacation. Mr "M"..........where are YOU?
Sorry Uncle Sam............you have created an environment, through your own actiuons where NO ONE CAN TRUST YOU.
Having worn the uniform once myself, it pains me to say this BUT.....GOV has shown us all, and the world, that it can not be trusted. Now add in the over the top Regulatory environment, a lunatic tax code, FED regaultors in charge of industries they themselves NEVER SPENT A DAY working in, as well as the RACIST witch hunt by race hustling activists, enabled by THIS ADMINISTRATION...........and we see the modern day version of the collapse of the Roman Empire.......we, the US, are imploding because of the NANNY STATE posture DC has assumed in EVERY ASPECT of life, death, work, consumption..................the IDIOTPLEX in DC needs to step back, re-assess...and say to itself over and over again......just because we can is not a good enough rason to do so AND.............stop solving so called FOREST FIRES by suggesting a solution along the lines of clear cutting the forests to do so. ENOUGH guys-n-gals.....................re-assess................start over.............stop suffocating the society you are paid to perpetuate.
Yes, and there was a time where the "partnership" between Corporate America and DC was a smooth/agreeable/workable and non-abusive relationship ........but this was a time when the GOV truly was going after ONLY the bad guys.
Today we learn of US FED types flying drones or using satelite photo tech to view nude sunbathers at HOME...not on some nude beach.......or the twiddle dee, twiddle dumb cop who sees a BABE he wants to get to know , looks up her license plates....gets all her info. then pursues.
The outrage is that the punishment for ABUSE of exploiting such private environments is often a write-up or at worst, the loss of ones job.................BUT.nothing more serious for VIOLATING the PUBLIC TRUST.
Enter the TECH age and we see the DOORs shut as the bridge between GOV and CORPORATE was burned a long time ago, BY THE GOV.
I want to catch/pursue those who helped this limp terrorist but FEAR opening the gate for the GOV to access AT WILL....via compromising in this case, PRIVACY because WE KNOW DC WILL ABUSE IT.
The GOV has shown time and again, that it is incapable OF NOT ABUSING it's authority. The Foreign tax issue is yet another issue where once criminals were punished, now thw INADVERTANT'S, often ex-military TYPES WHO served THIS NATION OVERSEAS...MET AND MARRIED a FOREIGN BORN who happens to one day INHERIT ANYTHING from his/her dying parents......these folks are now criminals IAW the BOGUS...self regulated IRS THUGS.................don't get me started on the EPA, SEC, or one of MANY OTHERS ! LMAO!
Ours has become a GOV from "Keystone Cops" land. If asked how we can STOP Forest FIres, the GOV response today would likely be , " LET's CLEAR CUT ALL OUR FORESTS" to prevent Forest Fires.
and TRUST? Gone long ago.............our GOV has become it's own greatest enemy with endless regulation, over the top control.............WASTE, ABUSE.the list is endless. Oh and DEBT of course!
I hope not....on the otherhand, I think it would send a VERY LOUD wakeup call to our OVERPAID CLOWNS in DC...............where INSIDER TRADING is tolerated amongst themselves..............
Hmmm, I can't think of a single security program involving US citizens as a whole where the GOV kept it's promise. I also find it interesting that the PUBLIC is NEVER brought up to speed when violations or abuse occurs and no one learns what was done to the GOV perp who violated private citizens privacy.
However the real issue is that once this magic process is in the hands of Uncle Sam, it is only a matter of time before our nations enemies have access to it as well. This is just how good our guys-n-gals who get paid to keep secrets, build tech walls etc. , and protect our info. etc.// are or rather, are not.
The BRIDGE between GOV and CORPORATE America was BURNED by DC....the TRUST the Average American had for our elected officials was also destroyed by GOV. It appears Big Brother truly has been born in practice.....though the GOV wants to deny it.................simply put, when more and more people have to worry about our growing LEGAL FAT where law after law aimed at the few but directed at the whole literally suffocates the american way of life.
The level of DISTRUST and outright HATRED of GOV from both sides of the spectrum is higher than it has ever been in our nations history. It all started with HOOVER...and grew from there.
AAPL should do an INVERSION and move to Ireland. Maybe this well send the deafening SCREAM to DC regarding over regulation to the point of SUFFOCATING SOCIETY to the Nth!
Yes, I heard BAC wants to do a DIV inversion which would require all shareholders to PAY a DIV to BAC! BAC suspects the DIV inversion would raise 40 cents per share per year from Shareholders..........and short of an actual inversion, BAC plans on just taking that amount or more by watching the BAC share price erode another 40 cents or more!
Maybe revision? or rip-off, or mismanagement fallout should replace the word INVERSION here......you decide ! I mean over the last 12 months, BAC has paid out 20 cents and shareholders have PAID a few bucks per share! Yippppeeeeee! It is a shareholder INVERSION verses an actual geographic inversion!
in the South China Sea waters. If relations were to continue eroding, with China asserting it's naval presence thus threatening allies such as Japan, Taiwan, and northward, South Korea....oh and hey, even V. Nam has it's own little spats with China, what happens to US/JAPANESE.....well, ALL FOREIGNCORPORATE (and otherwise), INTERESTS on Chinese Soil?
Don't want to live on the WHAT IF pill but refuse to ignore what seems to be a growing concern. Any input SBUX Corporate?
First, we all realize SBUX, as great as it is, does not set foreign relations though I must admit, it can add to such!
However, watching the ELBOWING of one another in Coastal areas between the US (0thers) and CHINA, over China's claims to have sovereign control over such, WHAT IS THE FALLOUT Corporate America faces if relations between China and the US sour?
KMA! Move to Ireland, do the INVERSION, free up your ability to offer SECURITY as well as the OVER @)) BILLION in foreign banks.
Maybe doing this will finally SOLVE the CONSTIPATION forced on both Corporate and Individual American's by BIG BROTHER.................sorry DC, you've earned the TITLE.
