Never been more excited for this stock since pre Windows 95. With the failure that was Windows 8, MS has nowhere to go but up, so happy to see Ballmer leave.
(LT holder since 8/1995)
Ok **LONG** term holder here since 1995, but with the horrible stagnation experienced under Ballmer, it begs the question WHEN WILL HE GET THE BOOT!??? I am reminded by another horrible stagnation with Walt Disney & Co under Eisner -- as soon as Iger took over its been the gravy train.
I'm feeling very good selling out at $17.08 or so. I already needed to re-balance/re-allocate the IRA and with the market looking toppy and ERF looking chitty I bit the bullet and haven't looked back.
Not sure if I want to double down or just kick this pos to the curb.
Buy in mid-late '07 and crash crash crash, pick up a bit more int he mid 20s thinking that's a steal and crash crash crash. Even with the dividends I'm down a good 30+%...
I was thinking the same thing -- how is this puppy down, the day after PVX gets bought out? PWE was up over 4% today, ERF down 2.5% out of the gate? Someone knew, this is total BS!!!
I saw the same article and did the same face palm. Anyone who gets their financial news from Forbes deserves the portfolio trashing they will inevitiably receive.
simple reply --
tho the truth will be told in the performance numbers going forward...
i have been long since '02 and so far this has been the most concerning thing in all my years
I got my distribution today and noticed that tax had still been withheld even though my shares are in an IRA. I had heard with the conversion from a trust to a corporation that foreign taxes would no longer be withheld from distributions -- is this starting with the NEXT distribution or do I need to contact my broker?
Van Eck's webpage notes that REMX still trades at a premium of $0.16 or 0.64% as of 1/4/11 -- note that this could be off due to the numerous foreign holdings, I am just relaying what the company is reporting.
Almost missed the boat -- I heard OAKBX just softclosed meaning if you don't already have a position you will have to invest directly through Oakmark
I finally get the prototype firmware for my Sony LCD TV (KDL-52V5100) to fix the red flashing issue (google search it) and now my PS3 is having problems like everyone else. =) Good ole Sony.
