....I'm new to SPXU and Red Queen's explanation was very helpful...so far I've made a few bucks but my finger is on the SELL button.
That's enough pain for me with a new company....I sold at @ $35.19....the ABT/ABBV separation hasn't done my portfolio any favors....since the first of the year, for every ONE dollar my ABT has gone up.....my ABBV has gone down TWO....can somebody please tell me how splitting ABT in two was good for the shareholders?
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Did ABT give us a pig in the poke?....were we given the most unprofitable parts of ABT's balance sheet with ABBV? ....I'm holding on for now but my finger is resting on the SELL button....I would have been better off dumping ABBV the day I inherited it....disgusted!
What's the down caret "v" mean before the closing price? Did the circuit breakers kick in today? And is that what the down caret "v" means? Are the circuit breakers specific to one stock or to the total DOW in general?
"Whether or good or bad, pay no mind to such trivials and keep your mind on the big picture which can't be measured quarter to quarter."
.....yep!....and here's the big picture: IMHO our economy is entering a slowdown that hasn't been seen since the 1930s...we'll be lucky if there's not food riots before it's all over...DG is going to be picking up a whole new class of shoppers that previously wouldn't be caught dead in a dollar store....there's an old saying about the dollar store business.
When times are good, they make money.
When times are bad, they REALLY make money!
Good luck to everyone!
facts don't matter to Islamic supremacists...they don't come to integrate....they come to dominate.
Ron Dellums; mayor of Oakland or Larry Langford; mayor of Birmingham or Shiela Dixon; mayor of Baltimore....any of the three would be a perfect fit....but does Obama really have to leave in 2016?....wouldn't it be better to change the Constitution so that he could stay on as long as he feels necessary?
...thank you MeFree49....I think I'll move past LLY and look into other opportunities....Lly appears to be a deeply troubled company at this time.
LLY is on the recommended list at my brokers...yet it looks like LLY actually LOST $1.89 in EPS....is this loss a one time thing or is it expected to go on and on and on?....comments welcomed....thanks, and good luck to all.
....I'm wondering what will happen when all that water hits Louisiana....could it flood the sugar cane fields there?....and what will that do to the price of sugar?
our neighbor went to buy a new baler last week....the JD dealer said "$27,000, if I can find one."...JD's ag line is still king...that's the big hoss that pulls the wagon...when housing comes back, construction and timber harvest equip will come back too....meanwhile the demand for food will continue to drive demand for farm equip....this is not going to change globally.
I live in NC...several big grain farmers in our area have told me they are going to plant more soy beans this year and less corn....corn takes more fertilizer and thus really drives up the cost of production.
....one thing the author overlooks is how much fallow land in this country can be brought back into cultivation....if the market demand is there, nobody can crank up production like the American farmer...Bunge will continue to be the winner in this and so will Deere...a golden age of farming is about to return in this country....much like what happened after the Civil War.
...I noticed that also....lack of similar pre market activity in BG though....often they move along side DE.
JD730 Diesels rule!
exactly...the best tractor we ever owned was a JD 730 built in 1957....fifty years later it was still chugging along with plenty of power....same with the stock!
"Oct 31 (Reuters) - Oilseed processor and fertilizer producer Bunge Ltd (BG.N: Quote, Profile, Research) said it plans to publicly offer cumulative mandatory convertible preference shares for gross proceeds of about $750 million."
What does this mean to those of us who are shareholders now?....opinions/comments welcome.
"In short, it's good news, especially when accompanied by good earnings."
.....I agree, plus I like to add to my stock positions in 100 share lots...on my budget it's harder to do that with a high dollar stock.
Maybe the Morgan Stanley sale will shake up other papers...I'm old enough to remember when newspapers used to be pro American....if they would return to that I would start reading them again.
