Curious as to the reason. Can't say I follow this one too closely as it's just an extra in my account due to the spin-off. I've pretty much decided to let it ride till Spring and see where we are. Hopefully with a business plan that makes sense!
haha...funny. No bar is losing business to No Smoking Laws. Everybody is under the same law, hence zero difference. Sorry, nice try. We had a few bars in my little section of Ohio that tried to claim the No Smoking law killed them. Personally, I would have blamed the #$%$ food and lack of choices from their bar tap but what do I know?
Smoking on ship is another story. One of my pet peeves when cruising is the dense, and I mean dense, clouds of smoke eminating from the Casino and Dance areas. Not that I'm a big spender but the Carnival Victory did miss out on the paltry few dollars my Bride and I would have dropped there. And forcing me to walk through the Casino to get to what passes as a Comedy Club...not cool. Honestly, the smoking issue might be enough to redirect me and my money elsewhere next time. All things being equal, we would pick the nonsmoking cruise.
No hostility here, we all make choices.
Gotta be Troll Bait...common knowledge that there is no sapphire in the newest apple offerings.
That said, good potential here once some of the technicals and pricing issues are solved. Technicals like size and brittleness across an open space. It would be COOL to have a this stuff get produced in marketable and economic sheets that might have an applicability in my house. You know, like a window that could withstand a baseball? And not cost a fortune...
Gorilla Glass is doing exactly that with their push to be included in cars. Imagine a windshield with no cracks and chips! Well, at least a reduced incidence. As one who has replace the windshield a few times, that would be nice.
Rather dramatic swoon ongoing...any comment? Aside from I should have sold at the top...
27 August with a time on deck of 1245. HART sitting at $8.76 as I type, up 18 cents thus far today. Only 24 more cents to go and two trading days to get there.
I'm pulling for you!
3 month old emu chick $ 145.00
Yeah, I'm a dork and actually looked that up. Sugar Maple Emu out of Wisconsin. I'm assuming there is a lot more required than just turning an Emu out to pasture...
I still have this as a spin-off baby. Never got around to discarding and will probably hold for quite some time.
touch subject here...sorry for the inappropriate imagery. You did make an interesting comment "Harassment claims are common"... Yes, yes they are. Many are found to be nothing more than hurt feeling BUT two in the same office is usually a very bad sign. Then again, I'm speaking from waaaay over here and have zero facts beyond what you have provided.
BTW, a claim of harassment is not proof. Dismissing a manager based on a claim is truly shaky grounds for dismissal. Once the Manager admits, bets are kind of off. But I would be curious as to the nature of the harassment. We had a gal file over here based on a breakup and hurt feelings. Yeah, the both admit to the fling but she claimed he wouldn't let it end. Is that enough to dismiss? Investigation showed nothing, not even email contact from the acknowledged breakup date. But his life was a living hell for a month or so..
One of the odder sights I saw when I boarded a few months ago was the number of folks bringing cases of water with them. Quoting from the Carnival FAQ's
Guests are prohibited from bringing alcoholic beverages on board. However, at the beginning of the cruise during embarkation day, guests (21 years of age and older) may bring on board one 750 ml bottle of wine or champagne, per person, only in their carry-on luggage. A $15 corkage fee per 750 ml bottle will be charged should you wish to consume this wine in the main dining room or steakhouse. (A corkage fee is a charge exacted at a restaurant for every bottle of liquor served that was not bought on the premises)
On embarkation day, each guest may bring a small quantity of non-alcoholic beverages on board and only in their carry-on luggage. A small quantity is considered a maximum of 12 bottles and/or cans, 20 ounces each or less.
Pretty straight forward...almost a "Thou shalt not"
yeah, I was going to comment as well but I didn't want to feed the wolf, so to speak.
But since you did it first...congrats on lucking into one!
Any Clue as to why this thing has jumped more than 10%? Aside from the obvious irrational exuberance that is? I'll even spot you some words like "Potential" and "Ground-Breaking". Seriously, I can find nothing in the spots I go check and the volume isn't enough to drive it THAT much...well, at least I don't think so.
So please clue me in all you smart people out there. BTW, I only own this because it fell in my lap via the HBIO spin-off.
Oh, that was Old GM...The brand new GM would never do such a thing...
Personally, I'm holding for at least another 6-9 months. I want to allow this company a chance to stand and show that it is, in fact, a competent medical supplier of niche products. I'm expecting to see an actual profit across the Summer months. Will that translate into share prices? Who truly knows. There are some folks who seem to think that this is a buyout candidate now that HART has departed. I'm not so convinced of that. I'm seeing the little engine that could...
My guess (or technical evaluation...whatever) is that we could see HBIO sitting around 6 by year's end. Basically, a 30+% run across the 7 months remaining. Nice, but don't bet the farm on that. Seriously, think about how much you are paying for this "advice"...
Not a shock to most folks that follow this though it's pretty clear that more than one or two folks were quite surprised!. My gift shares will stay put for some time.
