    no money for ten days ?

    by alslock Jan 1, 2015 9:06 PM
    bottomsupinvestor bottomsupinvestor Jan 3, 2015 9:10 AM Flag

    That is a good question. That might screw up my estimated 2014 tax payments. If it lingers out to the ninth of January, the remaining portion of my shares will be a long term capital gain. I guess we have to wait and see how it is posted in our brokerage accounts. Please keep me up to date on what happens with your account. So far, I have not heard anything from Fidelity concerning this transaction.

    Just passing though. Yes it is real and maybe they have turned the corner. Lots of bad history but this is a new company since the old days.

  • bottomsupinvestor by bottomsupinvestor Dec 30, 2014 7:49 PM Flag

    Just wanted to say howdy and wish you a prosperous new year. I was just thinking of you and the HSR wiggy days and thought I would look you up. I am glad to see you are still posting away. Not sure if you are still dabbling in the market or laying back on your investment laurels. I still run a contest on the KTCC board on occasion.

    Good luck to you!!!

    Here are the individual stock. No takers during this contest for KTCC. Maybe that is a sign of capitulation and a bottom. I was tempted but decided to go with my more growth oriented picks.

    It is ironic that Alistair is complaining that AmTrust is trying to "silence critics" yet AmTrust is giving them an opportunity to explain themselves to a judge. I am glad AmTrust is suing some of these fear mongering shorts. Nice.

    My 2015 Prediction for HIMX

    I would think that is possible when things finally work out. It seems like the applications are piling up. At some point the dam has to break and these things will hit the street.

    OK, we are off to the races with another contest. The mood last week seemed somber like the start of the last contest. The main complaint then was that there wasn't much in which folks were interested. Despite that, the market gained 3% by the end of the contest. So far, this is a good week with which to start and kind of changed the outlook.

    Also, my sincere apologies to valueBAMBINO. I got your board name wrong for the whole contest last time. Sorry!!! That is just another reminder that I am overdue in updating my glasses prescription.

    Here is how the contestants rank:

    Well, that made my day. I am so glad you are doing well. Often folks suddenly disappear from the boards never to be heard from again. There are a variety of possible reasons both good and bad. I have enjoyed your professional comments and wish you well! Good luck with and enjoy your investments going forward and have a wonderful holiday season
