Behind WHAT ?
ONE system failed ONE test ONE time.
Do you hit the ball every time you swing the bat ?
Right up your alley then, Joel. BTW there is no likely marriage between Martin Marrieter or any other defense outfit as they are a MATERIALS company (and spelled Martin Marietta, in any case), and, if McDonald Douglas is equipping planes with cheeseburgers (after its divestiture from Boeing) it would be called McDONNELL Douglas.
Learn at least SOMETHING about what you're talking about before donning your "stupid poser" suit..
While all you nebbishes are wailing and pointing your fingers, I'll just be over here making some $$ with KMB. Don't mind me, just bicker among yourselves.
The word was supposed to be C$%R$%A$%P$%-shoot. Pity Yahoo is too busy playing word police to pay attention to getting their finance/portfolio page to work properly DURING NORMAL BUSINESS HOURS.
I'm out because there is nothing on which to base forward decisions. No "sort'a reliable" correlations or fundamentals. It's pretty much a #$%$-shoot. Going to more industrial metals and materials.
Good luck guys/gals.
Always get a chuckle looking at these drug names. Trying to pronounce "Darapladib" comes out sounding like something my 18 month old granddaughter say. Oh well, as long as it makes $$. LOL
Shares outstanding has nothing to do D/E or market capitalization as debt remains the same regardless....oh, never mind. Buy a book.
Also keep in mind that DD perforce requires that analysis should not be made "in a vacuum" but in comparison with companies engaged in the same sector/industry.
Ummm...why get wrapped around the axle re: divvy amt variability, pence or $ due to currency exchange rates ? Just go to your broker's site and look up activity on your account; it's right there.
I'm a 42y member of USAA and have been dropping USAA mutual funds steadily the last 10 years as consistently cheap but underperformers. Their brokerage services aren't much help but, at $5.95 a trade, cheap and haven't been screwed up. Their savings bank products have been good. Their insurance lines are good but I worry that they've opened up membership to anybody with even the vaguest, tenuous association with the military. The "by and for the military" image is becoming a laughable hard sell.
I wouldn't count on the typical Kramer watcher knowing WHAT DD is let alone how to do it. I will say one thing......Kamer at least sticks it out there and gives a definitive buy/sell and not equivocate like every other investing "guru" out there.
It damn well IS promo spam when it's the same subject and message lines on EVERY stock on Yahoo with a ticker change.
Am (was) down 65% in USAGX and bailed 12/27 for the tax loss in 2013. Fortunately it was only a few k$ as it was a "stick my toe in the water" exercise a couple of years ago. Problem with gold and the miners is it is unanalyzable. It doesn't correlate well with anything but itself thanks to countries' monetary policy and currency trading. Recently the price runup in the metal lead to a lot of ill-conceived and poorly executed or marginal projects by little miners that hurt performance that showed when gold tanked.
