"will never see anything close to that"
AA hit $8.70 on September 19, just three weeks ago.
If the overall market goes up, AA will rise also.
I agree that the valuation is questionable, but AA is doing well and management seems to be moving into more profitable fabrication business activities.
FDA has 6 months to review the NDA.
Although we can expect approval, the government shutdown will delay the FDA response to this NDA.
Like I said -- $8.70 or higher by Thanksgiving.
Your posts tend toward pessimism. This is not 2009.
Vote Democratic if you want a strong US Economy.
TEX 2Q13 earnings was weak. Subsequently, the company cut projections for 3Q13.
Now, CAT is singing the blues, and the stock is red.
TEX is weaker than CAT.
TEX is overpriced even with good earnings ($2 per year).
Back to sub $30 after 3Q13 earnings today--IMHO.
When you look at the 6 month results, revenue and earnings are both down a bit from 2012.
Not very bullish. I guess some investors were expecting worse results, so we are up after-hours.
I was expecting worse, since 2Q13 was weak and CAT and ASTE were weak.
No growth, earnings of $2 makes this a $30 stock at best.
The rebound from the 2008 Financial Crisis has peaked--IMHO.
Despite all the negativity about NCR as a place to work, the 3Q13 earnings and revenue look good. Projected growth looks better.
NCR to $50 by Christmas--IMHO.
Seems the details were less than compelling.
NCR cooking the books?
10% decline seems out of scope with the rather upbeat earnings report.
Trends not favorable to WU stockholders--IMHO.
Not much to like in this 3Q13 earnings report.
Red flags for the future, despite management hype.
WU going down, seems to me.
WU down from here--IMHO.
Declining revenue, Declining profit, Increasing competition--not favorable trends.
3Q13 earnings report--weak. Future--weak.
Me not a paid basher.
Me looking at WU financials.
The market likes revenue growth, which WU is lacking.
The market likes profit growth, which WU is lacking.
WU business is flat, and getting weaker due to competition.
Sell now--going lower over time--IMHO.
The best way to decrease medical costs is to have a National Healthy Lifestyle Program.
Obesity is the biggest health risk. Americans are fatter than ever. Childhood obesity is an epidemic. Save money: Eat less food, eat better food. Eat a balanced diet and thereby have a healthier body. Healthier body = lower medical costs.
Get physical exercise every day. This helps keep the body healthy, including weight-control.
Manage stress. Stress is the biggest killer. Mental stress is the person's reaction to events. Physical Exercise, even for only a few minutes per day, is a very effective means to reduce a person's stress level.
One of the biggest increases in medical costs in the USA is kids on drugs for behavior and personality issues. This is obscene: Why drug a kid who is "hyperactive". Healthy kids are hyperactive as normal human beings. Stop putting normal, healthy kids on drugs. Let them be kids.
In addition: Get comfortable with dying: Everybody dies. Medical expenses tend to be highest for old people. When the body is worn out, check out. Going to heaven (if you believe) should not be so scary. Save the cost of medical treatments when your body is no longer an effective vessel for your soul to express on Planet Earth.
Bought 20 Nov 16 $37 puts for 70 cents each.
The jump today in TEX seems a bit odd.
Buyout? or BS?
Low volume suggests a BS move, and a lower stock price tomorrow.
Time will tell...
CSCO is the market leader in network equipment.
Sales were a bit weak, thanks to Federal Government shutdown most likely.
Long term, CSCO continues to grow revenue and profits.
CSCO is well managed. John Chamber has done a good job to date, and has CSCO positioned well for the future.
CSCO PE is low. Business is strong. Future is bright.
Tomorrow, buy CSCO for a 25% return by April 2014.
After Hours sell-off is overblown--IMHO.
Revenue growth 5-10% for the recent four years.
Profit growth of over 10% for the recent four years.
Quarter-to-quarter perhaps a bit choppy, but the annual trend is clear.
The industry growth will continue as the world builds out more IT infrastructure.
CSCO will maintain or grow market share in a growing industry.
Sure, this is not the late 1990s with the IT explosion that preceded the bust in 1999, but the industry is here to stay and growing organically consistently (Financial Crisis notwithstanding).
TSN posted good earnings and outlook.
Short Ratio is about 8, so I expect some short covering near term, and that will give TSN a boost.
I expect a move to the low 30s during the next few weeks, provided that the overall market remains steady or goes up.
If the market takes a dip, then so might TSN.
We can expect some end of the year tax related selling in some companies, such as CSCO and AMAT, that provided weak outlook. Maybe TSLA will dip below $100.
TSN should maintain the current level or continue to new highs during the next several weeks.
