everybody tends to forget the most important part of silver and so-so gold. both of these commodities are needed on a regular basis. now that china and the eu are printing money, they will need to buy silver and gold for their "new" currency positions. I don't follow china closely, however, I do follow the eu. the eu uses more coins then America does. I agree, silvers fair maket value is b/t 19 - 20.00. as soon as the currencies settle down, paas move up again.
depending on the share and debt split price, ebay would be worth 15 - 20.00 a share, paypal would be a 25 - 30.00. the shares are overpriced right now. paypal fee's are to high, as a stand-alone company.
gold and silver will always be part of our world. with all the currency printing about to start, you would think, maybe somebody needs these commodities. PAAS is a cash cow. it's not albout the USA. It looks like America will have to start paying up for the services and commodities they need.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
actually you are correct. the last 1/2 hour of trading today. the buy volume outnumbered the large selling volume.
AT & T has a subpar wireless system, they are cutting their throat, on reducing their capital spending to save their dividend !!! I am glad MTZ does not have these problems.
It looks like the PA / NJ gas line is moving forward. If the shorts push MTZ down again today, remember to buy, not sell.
Once the company sets the record date, the ex-dividend date is set based on stock exchange rules. The ex-dividend date is usually set for stocks two business days before the record date. If you purchase a stock on its ex-dividend date or after, you will not receive the next dividend payment.
the date of record and x-dividend date are different dates. America usually uses x-divi date. foreign countries use date of record for dividend distribution. be careful
PAAS is a great play. Buy the stock, get the dividend, sell your shares and short it down to 9.97. Look for a bounce back up to 10.50 by Friday.
Remember gold is still a safe haven currency. All the world currency's have corrected 10 - 20% over the last 3 months, gold just corrected a little more, from an American inflated high.
selling Canadian companies is extremely hard, unless you are a Canadian buyer. Canada does not let go of their commodity companies so easy. if anything, PAAS will buy out some smaller firms to grow their pps. most of these companies are debt free. now is the time to act, as the price of gold and silver are at yoy lows.
BECN is a well diversified company, selling to both the large builders and tradesman. It takes time (more then 45 days) to merge 2 new companies into their core business. Just like any other sales of companies, customers leave and new customers come. Be patient.
Don't throw away your shares. it will be a long cold and windy winter in the USA.
Remember, gold has been a world currency of choice, since the romans. PAAS has extremely low debt and high leverage with their mine operations. Once the markets figure out (again) that gold is an inflation hedge, these gold stocks, will be one of the leaders for 2015.
Time to buy more shares, short term, double bottom. I would love to see that 24.11 price again.
PXD already has extremely high carrying debt. given the current trading patterns for oil and gas, PXD's revenue will get squeezed for the next 2 quarters. 150.00 is the new "top" trading range. the bottom should be between 110.00 - 120.00. PXD lives on borrowed $$$$$
their are only a few shares (float) trading, as PPC mgmt. holds over 200 million shares. if the company, as you say is for sale, then those 200 million shares are dead money at this price. it looks like a game of cat and mouse are being played right now. I would think PPC mgmt. will release 100 million shares to trade. 40.00 is the right price, however wallstreet wants 35.00 as the price. PPC hands are tied.
be careful with this one.
The shorts are in control. 19 million shares, 16%+ shares are short. The shorts are having a fun day. Todays action is a little overdone.
this cycle major support level is 39.76. this will be broken today.
the next major level of support is 37.37. that would be a good entry point.
todays problems are, HFC already blended most of their winter blend fuels at higher prices, they can not turn that around right now.
dc don't sell into this downdrift. GOLD is ready to breakout !!! the usd/cad has hit a resistance point @ 114.66. gold's break-away level is 1215.00. tomorrow gold will be up 25.00, silver .75 cent.
buy all you can today. 9.40 was a low reversal point.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Yesterday the Canadian market was down over 300 pts., PAAS ended the day basically
flat with very high volume. That is a positive sign. Look for PAAS to be up .75 - 1.00 today.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
expenses are growing, backlogs are down, house prices est. to be flat in 2015. huge carrying debt moving into the new year. TOL should have bought down their debt, instead of buying back shares.
I guess its all about bonuses.
buy or sell ??
