we hear you. was nice getting 87.5 cents per share per Q but that's over with now. I've got a long time to wait in the 50's. I do think this oil mess is just WS manipulation. remember it at 30 a barrel??? then it went to like 114 or so (something like that). I think we see 80-100 oil this year as the countries selling at 40-50 are in trouble with their GDP numbers. They will drop production to push it higher. Time will tell. Until then, 12.5 cents per share is what we get. Still haven't understood why no consolidation in the market with buyouts/mergers short of HAL/BHI.
fine. what I was worried about was another SDRL event. DO did go to the 30.X range and has come back nicely. once oil hits 80-100 in the summer/end of year, we'll be over 50. Just have to hold. so we don't get 75 cents per share. at least they kept the other so funds won't sell that have to get divs.
sorry, not both. meant cynical and sarcastic. I have a lot of money in sdrl (30's), RIG 40's and 50's, DO 40's and 50's. NE in the 30's. I am down so much, I'm fuming. I'm a trader and stuck beyond stuck. just makes me mad. at least we went green for a while. What makes me mad is 1% of oil surplus and DO is down 40% from 50 bucks.
I'm both. mad beyond mad. They saw what SDRL did on the dropped div. so they kept the 12.5 cents. I'm fuming over this. Just wish they'd get over 50. I have shares at 55 so I"m #$%$. and the BK was sarcasm.
okay shortie. they beat expectations. down due to the idiots cancelling the special dividend. what blows my mind is we lost 0.75 per share but it's down over 2 bucks. mgt screwed up. sell out for 50 and be done with it.
stupid mgt. I own so much of this but I hope it goes BK so mgt loses everything. this is going to plummet. They didn't learn from SDRL's woes. idiot management. Sell the company for $50 and be done with it. fire the whole crew.
not really. it did rise today before all the other things started the heavy buying. could also be the 401K buying too (if you ever thought of that possibility).
yeah, at the time you posted, it was low. I saw that too. Only after I put in a sell for some shares at 6.62 did the volume and price go up a lot. I saw AZN was down today. usually the buyer is down and the buyee (sp) is up when things leak. Could be just coincidence I guess. Look at GILD. was 97's and then crossed or got near 100 late in the day. I think buying was going on everywhere today and ARIA caught a bid. Would like to wake up to the ticker tomorrow on cnbc and ARIA over 20 but doubt it. Think it was just buying across the board today.
11/3/14 was ex-div day. today was 2/3/15 - 3 months from last one. guess they forgot to let the public their intentions. The stock was below 31 yesterday while RIG and SDRL was a lot higher because the market was afraid DO would cut the divvy. They need to post the 12.5 cents and 75 cents per share as oil will be over 100 in a year and the stock over 60. If they cut, it will drop to 20 and only be over 40 in a year if lucky. they have a lot to lose if they don't give the whole divy now. Wake up mgt.
I bought on the earnings news at 46. sold at 43.5 and rebought at 42.5. sold at 41.5. now rebought at 40.8 (all 1000 share trades). I'm doing great.
look at ICPT. 202 bucks a share. 21MM outstanding. 4.2B MC. They have 2MM in sales for this or next year. Geez, can we say overvalued or ARIA is way under valued. I give up. AZN or shire, please pony up $22.5 bucks a share and put the news out. After you give burger bun the offer, please post this news on the net so we all can sell our shares to you and burger bun can take the poison pill and shove it where the sun doesn't shine. I can only hope. I know burger bun will sit on the offer till 2050 so you need to tell reuters the news and let the market decide what to do. Let burger bun go work at MCD's after you buy the company if he wants to work any longer. thanks for your help in this matter.
SDRL cut the divy completely and got crushed. RIG said theirs is safe. DO said they will monitor the situation. I say news on Monday concerning the dividend. If they keep both, then the stock rises due to the feeling things aren't so bad with them. And yes, once it's given out in march, the stock will drop 87.5 cents to reflect the donation to shareholders.
I can only hope. I know people at AZN and they do press releases in the am (8am or so). Maybe one day soon we'll see the news. I just hope it's north of 20 by a little bit. Doubt it will be for more than that but maybe 25 is a stretch??? time will tell.
last one was 11/3/14 so 2/3/15 should be near it. I'm sure the street is waiting on their word as last time they said "they'd monitor the dividend and market/business conditions and do accordingly". So we wait. If they do the same (75 cents/12.5 cents), we rock a few bucks higher on the relief the dividend is good another Q. time will tell.
fed speaks tomorrow. last time they did, I had nugt at 19.5 and it dropped to 17 on the way to 9. Expect dust to rock past 13 tomorrow. good luck.
