for one day, but look at the long term record for cramer. he touted NAT at 35 and 25 and had the ceo on twice.... it's now $8. he hasnt brought it up again on his show, but if i hear he shorted it, i'll buy. get it? one day influence, take advantage of it.
They completely ruined itunes by changing the way radio is presented. I used to be able to choose a station by genre, and bitrate, and play it. Now they suggest a bunch of garbage i dont want and i have to search for everything else... which they don't label. horrible. I will never listen to itunes radio again. Pandora and Songza it is.
Also, my ipod broke, my wife thinks my droid phone is much better than her iphone. This company died with Jobs.
disclaimer: no position in apple, but if forced I would short it.
mc, i think tbear's question is a good one and the reasons are not limited only to the two you mention. it is probably good to accumulate any information prior to investing, especially when it affects potential dilution, ie value per share. I find it funny you think tbear is trying to manipulate the stock price on yahoo message boards.
This is the only news I could find, from June 6.
"CT Corp and Indonesian communications provider Telekomunikasi Indonesia (Telkom) have partnered on pay TV services. Upon closing of the planned transaction, CT and Telkom will have joint ownership in TelkomVision, a unit of Telkom. Under the partnership, Telkom will provide the infrastructure and CT the content to the pay TV venture."
So $250M net income for the quarter. But $70M cashed in by top execs in options during the quarter. why is there no shareholder revolt here? you're being diluted while the execs take home 8 or 9 figure incomes. Three times more was paid to execs in this quarter than in total dividends over the last year to all shareholders. Does a 1.3% profit margin call for this type of compensation? Is it the 1% growth rate? All the new innovative products and increased marketshare? nope. The board should be investigated.
this is probably one of my worst investments. I'm down 30% and waiting for a huge down draft in the market to get out. problem is that it seems that everyone has that approach and HDGE doesn't seem to appreciate much when the market is down. even with some wins like GMCR we're down. I can only assume the team is making some really bad decisions to be down so much.
my advice: stay away unless you think the market is going to tank soon.
this contradicts much of what you say and your opinions.
I voted against it too. I'm really #$%$ about this. At least management got a good deal despite throwing out their fiduciary responsibilities for the shareholders.
I was wondering the same thing. The only reason I can think of is that people were speculating that this would happen and are selling on the news. After all, the ceo is a large shareholder, and has done this before, so it was a good bet.
I know it's small in percentage terms, but this is up today to the highest level since the announcement. any ideas? perhaps the heritage takeover demonstrates the demand for these companies? i'd love another bidder to show up.
there are some lawsuits out there on behalf of shareholders that allege the board is not acting in the best interest of shareholders. I do think it sucks... my votes will be to reject this, i urge others to do the same.
Someone on CNBC speculated that the stocks affected by the Knight error(s) had trades that should have been spread out over a long period of time, just dumped at once.
So, assuming this is true (it's all speculation at this point), the good news is that there isn't any horrible news on NAT. The bad news WOULD BE that there was a whole lot of selling to take place in the near term.
the HDGE manager says they are not covering a share. I mean, it's down 50% in one day. I wish they would take their profits. With a PEG of .56 and a forward PE of 7 (expect these to be higher soon though) I think they're getting greedy, and we all know where that ends. And when your fund is down 27% I feel like they are trying to hit a home run with every swing to make up for all the mistakes.
I own a little GMCR and some HDGE. But i'll sell my HDGE first if they don't cash in on this present soon. (fyi, i bought gmcr at 5.50 and sold most of it in the last two years).
Here is the article from 2008.
At least this manager seems to know what he is doing! I'm glad i've taken part in this fund but agree with the manager that rates are only going up from here.
How are we supposed to feel when the fund manager says he's souring on bonds and we're all sitting here holding a bond fund? Quite frankly, i'll probably sell.
I bought in 2008 and am up 78% with reinvested dividends. I was hoping they would have more BBB holdings but when i check today I am disappointed with that too. The theory was that as the financial crisis subsided that junk would be upgraded and we'd see some capital gains on holdings (while getting a great yield in the meantime). At least that's what the barron's article in Oct'08 stated.
So yeah, I don't need AAA in my portfolio.
yeah, i just got an email in my spam folder pumping this. 100K in revenue and more than 6 times that in debt? I know they are small numbers but unless there is a nice contract being lined up they will probably need more capital at this burn rate.
why is it that optionsxpress needs up to 75 days (until march 15) to file forms for their account holders?! this is ridiculous. I received my forms from fidelity weeks ago and now i'm being held up from filing because of operational issues? They get 2.5 months to send out some forms (which should all be automated, no?) and I have 30 days after that until the deadline?
I'm seriously considering closing my account. Are schwab customers experiencing the same thing?
