According to Warren Buffett, both parties have been that dumb...so far. The Prez could unilaterally raise the debt ceiling pursuant to the 14th amendment, but he said earlier that he wouldn't do that.
In the midst of all the rhetoric, you have to be hopelessly optimistic to see a debt ceiling extension in the near future.
Sounds good...bought a bunch of Jan. 15 calls myself. With these IPOs it takes a while for the dust to settle. Just look at FB IPO.
Harry Truman wasn't much of an intellectual, but he did say, "The Buck Stops Here." Prez, you could learn a lot from taking that quote seriously.
Before every speech, there should be a disclaimer. If this speech is factual and helpful, it was an accident.
Obama likes to lead by consensus...but we don't have time for that right now. The Prez needs to step up to the plate and hit a home run i.e. lead, if necessary by executive order to raise the debt ceiling.
Very nice....at the conference call, maybe we'll hear more about YHOO Hong Kong IPO also.
Obama likes to govern by consensus...but when Congress becomes like a children's playground...it's time to step in and take charge. That's what the Prez needs to do now.
It's Time to Resolve the Debt Crisis. I can see it now, in 6 months the White House will be crumbling mess and then Vladmir Putin will make a surprise visit. He'll feel so sorry for the Prez that he'll have his limo take the Prez and Michelle to some ritzy restaurant near embassy row in DC.
Nah...this is normal, people are coming to their senses and doing their calculations prior to earnings. Besides owning shares of stock in other companies, MM needs to keep working to keep YHOO core on the cutting edge.
But the thing is, if you sold calls against your AAPL position you would have still gotten the split and most of the subsequent upside. In addition to that, you would get the premium from the calls you sold. And on the off chance some of your AAPL shares were called away, you can always re-buy if you wish. Also, since you would lose your shares when there's a big upward run, chances are good that you could even buy at a lower price.
When you are a private corporation, you are not required to make earnings public. That being said, the larger private corporations do inform shareholders at shareholder meetings about the financial progress of the company.
