Affect is how you behave, effect is what happens when your behavior causes someone to deliver kinetic energy to your jaw. Though afterwards your affect might be different as well. I'm afraid you have them more than a trifle confused.
You know we see posts EXACTLY like that one or, oh, what, 4 years now? And its still the same #$%$ Samdung ripoff of Linux, an OS with not QUITE as many securities issues as Win XP Rev.2, but one that has demonstrably been bytched more than once by security companies and individuals.
Shorting this stock is SO stupid that I doubt we have less than a day to cover . . . That's not going to produce much of a squeeze, though for some of the more cautious shorts it might be enough to get them to crack and cover. There just aren't enough dumb shorts out there.
Give up, I've tried . . . no one thinks the difference between long term gains and income makes any difference anymore the way Obama has loaded down the long term gains rates with various surcharges. The one tax you can always get people to vote to pay is one that doesn't effect THEM, never mind that in real world terms it DOES effect them by raising overall prices in the economy.
pre-earnings weak hand shake outs . . . between 2 and 3 of them before each earnings except for when its dead obvious that the stock is grossly underpriced.
Yahoo doesn't need to hire trolls, at least for this board . . . its already active enough. Maybe a few other boards need some . . . . I wonder if we can rent her out to the BABA board? One troll to continually bash Management, that's the ticket . . . so she can thoughtlessly bash BABA . . . Naw, no need anymore, BABA bashed itself some time ago. This quarter will be worse.
Where the Petrobras rigs the same kind that Nobel split off to Paragon or were they of atypical make? It'd be easer to prove those contracts were poison if they were deeper water rigs. So, were the rigs working the Petrobras contracts primarily deep water rigs, or were they older jackups?
If they were atypical of the type that NE passed on to PGN then you MIGHT have a provable case, and I'd LOVE to read the meeting notes where they trashed out what rigs to include in that deal.
I just saw it, put it on ignore, and 13 topics vanished. Hasn't that woman teetered over the edge YET? I mean she's obviously lost any sense of objectivity on the Apple issue, what good is it to make a bunch of BS trades with a BS account, then get the account deleted within 72 hours, or put almost universally on ignore, because the poster is a known nut jobs.
You know we COULD save lives by getting her a mental health exam, who knows when she's going to finally go over the edge having been fired from Apple almost literally on the eve of their success. She may buy a trunk load of weapons and go to put some shield damage on Apple's new campus, better lock her up for a 72 hour hold!
Er, Didn't the spinoff remove almost all jackups from NE''s inventory? That would mean only Paragon's, and not NE, ships would be suitable for the task. Or was the problem with Brazil really caused by Brazil and NOTHING done by Paragon or any of their other contractors. You just have to learn to write a stern enough contract that the penalty clause makes continuing the lease to the end more economical than simply dropping it.
Now if Paragon's people didn't do that last bit when it was still Noble, THEN they screwed up, and you have to figure out if the screwup was intentional or the result of mistaken assumptions based on a rosy view of oil BEFORE the Saudi's pulled and sold their reserves. Not that it's going to matter since they're already pretty much succeeded in what they set out to do, now they just have to wait for world stocks to drop so they can reap the reward.
I seriously hope that doesn't happen. I don't want to be tried by the Hague for deliberating escalating the conflict back in early 2013. Not that anyone expected anything like ISIL at that time, at last not until Obama announced the unilateral pullout of Iraq, creating an enormous power vacuum.
Your argument for his guilty includes a great many presumptions . . . I assume you can PROVE that this was a "nefarious project to stick massive debt . . . " blah blah and that there were PLENTY of conspirators. In my experience the more people involved with a conspiracy, the more likely it is to fail. From the numbers involved in this one if you're right someone should be going to jail very very soon now.
Yep, just need some positive signs that the Saudis are going to STOP dumping their reserves on the market, or that said reserves are exhausted.
PARTICULARLY if the reserves have been exhausted.
If you have enough money in the market that loosing substantially all or most of their investments are idiots if they haven't first payed all the bills, AND diversified their holdings. One stock tanking should NOT destroy your portfolio. If it would then you're inadequately diversified or single industry centered to the point where disturbances in that industry would drop ALL your stocks, a very very bad thing, and one you should try to avoid.
Remember the whole oil and gas sectors are hammered almost flat right now, so if you're primarily a petro investor this has been a VERY bad year.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
It wouldn't have been hard to win if not for the Prospector deal, one they entered into with their eyes, after the split, set for green and so they didn't see the red they were putting over their heads. Still, even that SHOULD be survivable, and potentially a decent long term move.
So, whats the GDP of Rhode Island, and do you think that if Apple moved their HQ there the market cap would go down because it would probably exceed that of the entire state? I think you casually connect too many unconnected variables and forget to tune the proportional constant . . . Sales is not dependent on HQ geographic location unless both talent or labor are absent, and at this point in Apple's life they could move to the New Mexican desert and people would STILL move to work there, and they'd get one heck of a lot more for their houses than they do buying in Cupertino or Sunnyvale.
Heck it might have a bigger impact on NM's GDP than RI's.
I like their habit of maximizing product in one line before moving on to the next, despite some experimental (early AppleTV) gadgets that didn't sell so well, they created proof of concept of the delivery mechanism on a LAN first (First Gen AppleTV) with NTSC resolutions, then judged their protocols to find one that was optimal to the purpose, and then slowly refined the design over 5 years until it is, finally, very very nice.
Do I use mine much? No, not really, though I would if I could get it to forward my DVR's to it, but I do use it sometimes, and its still the first generation model. My 2nd generation unit is in a box somewhere. Looks like I'll have a sealed "fresh in the box" bit of Apple history in a few years.
Yep, that's why I'm not only keeping my current shares buy occasionally adding to them, when money remaining in budget allows and its not time for another cannon or big silver brick.
Sometimes I think the markets are competitive for retail traders only because so many other retail traders have no freaking CLUE what they're doing.
So your philosophy is that this market MUST come down and from that you conclude that the market will go down due to drops in its most successful listing?
DARN the conclusions you draw are interesting. Lets go visit all those companies with a P/E of "NA" because they don't make ANY net profit. Say, Netflix, or Amazon, or eBay, OR ANY of those software only companies who's cheap mainframes aren't even overloaded with processing the data the code is so simple.
The rest is product DELIVERY . . . at no point to they actually MAKE a salable product.
Look! He's starting to GET it, though while phrasing in terms like "Mathematical Impossibility" a ludicrous term since he provided no equations that would prove that a 1.3, or even a $2T market cap is unattainable, possibly because of inhibited or inadequately prepared math skills.
