I'll bite. The absolute best response I've seen came from Mr. Rubio when he said, "Knowing what we "NOW" know, even President Bush would not have gone into Iraq" Or words to that effect. Please don't go all wonky on me about a bad quote.
I walked that ground. Invasion force here. Uncle Saddam needed to go and I really didn't care the whole politics of it...I just wanted something to shoot! I do feel we almost "Lost the Peace" in the next year or so but while viciously resisted by democrat pols, the "Iraq Surge" truly did stabilize the entire "Country". Why the quotes? Quit thinking valid state and start thinking "Gang Territory"...makes more sense that way. A strong case can be made that we pulled out way too soon after we stabilized the country, but I'm more of a proponent that the Iraqi Government/people did not "Buy In". We could have stayed there 100 years but without buy-in, fruitless. They remained two separate and distinct populations that did not mix well at all. Instead, they did the old payback thing and settled scores. The #$%$ dominated government began choking the majority sunni population as payback for when the sunni dominated. Animals. No big surprise that the sunni struck back. Next step..#$%$ push back with Iran as the major backer. BTW, there is a reason the Kurds to the North just said "To hell with ya'll, we got this area here".
The Iraqi people, if there actually is such a thing, are reaping exactly what they sowed right now. Obama assisted and accelerated the entire meltdown by disappearing. ISIS, and the entire JV team, is on him.
Go to Church. Lot's of old married couples in the pews. 32 years of Honest and Faithful service here! And we are faaaaar from the oldest marriage in the house.
Seriously, yeah, I get it. Tough thing to watch families come apart at the seams. Try your utmost best to not chose sides...unless someone really screwed the pooch, that is. And no, I don't mean "doing the dog". Too many military years, that #$%$ just comes out from time to time.
I bought a while ago and am sitting on a 50% run up. but yeah, I'm perplexed as I was seeing $30+ as well. Curious and I do not have insight to the daily dealings...to me, the future looks about as "sure thing" as you can make it.
Clearly, I am not fully informed. My plan? Do nothing right now.
Personally, I'm standing by my earlier prediction of a share price north of $52.
Reasons? Steady fuel price, while slowly rising is still historically low. Management concentration on margins. Continued revamping of cruise ships. A general perception that things aren't all that bad in America. Asia potential. Cuba potential.
Perfect? Of course not, but it seems to me that CCL has a decent plan going forward and it would require some manner of epic size to disrupt it. That said, there are a host of things that could go wrong, I just don't see it coming together in a bad way for the next 6 months plus.
Of course, another boiler fire or Norovirus outbreak on a few CCL ships...at that point, the low $30's are very doable. But that might be a new buy-in point.
Directly from WebMD...
For people without diabetes, the normal range for the hemoglobin A1c test is between 4% and 5.6%. Hemoglobin A1c levels between 5.7% and 6.4% indicate increased risk of diabetes, and levels of 6.5% or higher indicate diabetes. Because studies have repeatedly shown that out-of-control diabetes results in complications from the disease, the goal for people with diabetes is a hemoglobin A1c less than 7%. The higher the hemoglobin A1c, the higher the risks of developing complications related to diabetes.
Been burned twice now by this stock. Stings. I no longer own any shares.
Sorry, lost all faith in anything they say. Best hope now is a buyout. Hey, maybe HBIO wants them back!
got in @$3.70 but only with about a tenth of what you claim. I'm feeling quite the financial genius right now.
Usually, that's me! But I oddly managed to get in @$3.70 about a week ago. Thought I made a mistake for a few days but all is forgiven right now.
I also typically miss the proper sell point too!
Well...I have officially bailed. I no longer retain my HART gift from the spin-off.
My opinion? Amazing idea backed by fraudulent science. Might take up to two years to clear the shame? Yes, maybe change medicine as we know it...eventually...but not in time to improve my retirement play money account. I should have looked closer and actually heard the whispers of potential bad news. And yes, the whispers were out there if you wanted to hear them.
I'll come back from time to time just to see if the ship has righted itself.
