I think that Mark Twain was suggesting you say nothing.
If your doctor recommends treatment and its not paid by insurance... you can still get the treatment... in the end you have a say...
quadrupling the dividend. Learn from what caused the initial move up in the stock price... having this stock pay a 3.7% dividend would only cost a $108 million, yet they add 1 Billion to the 388 million still available for buybacks. Enough for a decade of dividends. I think a 3.7% yield would attract a significant number of new holders and move the stock far more than the buyback...
"you act like health plans don't have physcians on staff or medical boards"
Actually Health Plans DON'T have physicians on staff or medical boards... That would be the insurance company. The point being the health plan is a contract with specific terms.
The majority of the insurance that is sold by the large companies is self insured. This means that there is NO financial stake to the insurer. The payments are administered by the ins co and the self insured company pays the claims out of a reserve fund that is maintained on a daily basis. The company decides what gets paid via the health plan contract, the insurance company pays for the items covered and not for ones that are not.
The funding pool and total costs are effected by the coverage chosen...
In a trading session stocks will go up or sown or stay the same.
So now I have posted a comment that is far more accurate than stein76, and
I also delivered as much value...
Brought to you after reading his post that after being delivered in the money puts one would just short the shares...
Had a funny typo, was tempted to leave it in... I had misspelled stein as swein... e was just in the wrong position.
Gee options expire next week, also last week the week before and the week after...
MCP trades weekly options
Only if its covered in your plan... a concept missing in the original message in this chain.
Phil, you keep bringing me up so do it in the right context... I was active as a buyer when PTN traded at $4 (before the 10 to 1 reverse split - which you stated would not happen even after the news was published - your inside connections).
When neutrospec was puled I felt that the company was no longer the investment it once was. Same poor management back then. I had influenced a few friends to buy and upon seeing the news I called then and they sold at a loss pre-split 3.16 to 3.20
I did not follow my own advice and road it into the low 2's... when the stock jumped up and hit $3.00 I dumped every share I had and my ears rang with the same tune as you constantly squeal... The players that were so critical are largely gone... DrBob if this is the same individual and Yani, there was a bigjohn? too are the only ones that survived as posters.
1 having sold a decade ago it would be hard to take a loss
2 my shares were in an IRA - can't take the loss
3 After a year the deduction is only against long term holdings
So please shut your (whatever you talk out of - I suspect its not your mouth)
Would have been nice to see the stock price at each of those dates so:
12-17-09 closed 2.89
12-14-10 closed 1.05
12-13-11 closed .50
12-27-12 closed .73
Happy New Year
Tax loss selling has moved into the mid November timeframe... allowing those that know they want to take a loss the ability to buy in the end of December timeframe... They beat the crowd and take advantage of the late sellers and don't compete with the January buyers.... Look at the action on many of the stocks that are good candidates for tax loss selling... they are moving up for the last week in many cases...
wow waited for the year of the year to put in your submission for most clueless post of the year... I think you have a winner here!
