Where is Beefstu in all of this? Perhaps with Shana at the buffet?
Hopefully the buffet contains food products manufactured by BGS. That should help maintain the current share price.
And I see the Nature Boy Ric Flair no longer consuming alcoholic spirits. A phony champion in a scripted story that some call professional wrestling, others sports entertainment. Woooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If only Patriarch Partner's CEO, the DIVA of Distressed Companies, Lynn Tilton were to take control.
Lynn has no use for fat lazy men, who she refers to by a certain 4 letter designation. ( 5 letters if multiple members of that designation)
If only the SEC and those pesky investors in her Zohar I II & III funds, and her insurance underwriter MBIA would leave her alone.
And you call me intellectually challenged for my wrestling expressions?
Why don't you just short this stock, make some money, and YOU CAN TAKE SHAWNA to the buffet.
Come to think about it Stewie, your comments would blend in quite nicely with some of those messages posted by some of the intellectual powerhouses who blog on the WWE message board.. Why don't you check it out.?
Once again, have any of these ham and eggers EVER disclosed their respective Form 8949 to their current subscribers?
Does anyone who boasts how they "beat the house" at their favored gaming establishment on their last visit ever disclose what they 'left at the house " during prior visits?
Is the World Wrestling Entertainment COO John Paul Levesque (known on television otherwise as HHH) truly a man who has truly earned the number one ranking competing in athletic competition in the engagement in the sport of wrestling on 14 different occasions or is all just a role being played on some long running dramatic series?
Me thinks USA is just another such as professional wrestler ala "Hacksaw Jim Duggan" running around in tights with a 2 by 4 screaming "USA. USA" Just another actor (and in Duggan's case a rather marginal actor/wrestler/entertainer at best) reading from some canned script.
I think that you meant to say that the answer is "Blowing in the Wind"
Once again, another outfit that touts their "expertise" yet another that will not publicly disclose their individual performances.
Just another bunch like the professional wrestler the Nature Boy Ric Flair, who woos to be the man you have to beat the man.
Oh by the way, that comes from the script courtesy of World Champion Wrestling (now today known as World Wrestling Entertainment) that I was given to recite to all you ham and egger viewers (investors)
Regarding comparing my level of intelligence to yours, as the 16 time World Wrestling Heavyweight Champion the Nature Boy Rick Flair would say, "to be the man, you have to beat the man". I see no indication that you have been successful in that endeavor since you have failed to provide us a listing of stocks that have performed better than BGS in the time frame I have previously provided.
We seem to hear from you whenever this stock drops
Investors who bought this stock in early 2010 are enjoying a 300% plus return on their investment . In addition, with the latest dividend announced, investors are enjoying a 100%+ increase
Now list for me now sir, how many other publicly traded companies have performed as well or better than that in the past 6 years.
Since it appears you appear to follow professional wrestling by using World Wrestling Entertainment performer Ryback's tag line, let me close with one for you.
BGS has been an exceptional stock to buy and hold and that's the bottom line, CAUSE STONE COLD SAYS
Enjoy the distribution, whether it is classified as a qualified dividend or return on capital.
Remember, that those in the 10% and 15% tax brackets pay no taxes on qualified dividends. Ditto for long term capital gains tax if by this distribution by being classified as a return on capital should cause, your basis to fall below zero, triggering a capital gains event
I guess some folks are happy only when they have something to complain about.
Perhaps the company as a goodwill gesture should provide said party with a case of the finest in the product line, so said party has plenty to take care of "backside issues"
Puts and calls are not appropriate investments for small, risk adverse investors.
If you do wish to pursue, please discuss these tools with your financial adviser.
before investing in these instruments. And yes be prepared to be billed for his or her time as he or she will should be be paid for their knowledge on these financial instruments. They are somewhat complex in nature , not something novice investors should undertake without fully understanding the risks.
Mrs. Kelsey must be ONE VERY UNHAPPY INDIVIDUAL.
Can you imagine, those weekly trips to get a manicure and other services at the spa will now have to be discontinued.
She may need to go to Great Clips to get her hair colored, and have that done less frequently than before.
Maybe Ms. Kelsey will find herself clipping coupons that can be found in most Sunday fishwraps.
to help stretch that food budget.
The horror of it all.
Increasing funding for regulatory agencies yields approximately the same result as to when one continues to provide additional funding to our public schools with the expectation that that will improve student performance outcomes .
They never seem to "alert us" when their selections go down the tank.
Clowns to the left of me jokers to the right . When will they publicly disclose their personal performance?
In Cleveland, Art Modell's son David adamantly declared that the Browns would not
be moved from Cleveland in the 90's and lo and behold his father Sir Arthur did just that, explaining
"I had no choice" Yeah right, the cash flow from operating the Browns in Cleveland, simply did not provide the cash flow necessary to support your outrageous wants and needs.
But keep in mind this, these clowns may have golden parachutes in their contracts, It just may cost more to get rid of them by firing them. Perhaps if enough pressure is put on these bozos they would leave on their own accord and hopefully, the parachutes would not need to be opened..
Lance and Sheets, don't you dare open up your pieholes and cry to us about the dividend income you will be forgoing as a result of the dividend cut.
If anything you clowns you need to apologize for your blatant lie. This is what you need to do: CUT 100% OF YOUR COMPENSATION STOCK OPTIONS, BONUS EXPENSE REIMBURSEMENTS ETC ETC ETC, IF YOU GIVE A DAMN about the company and the shareholders you allegedly work for. .
That of course will take place when HELL FREEZES OVER!
I forgot to mention that the dividends that COP pay are considered qualified dividends.
What that means is for ham and egger investors such as myself who are in the 10% and 15% federal tax brackets, these dividends are TAX FREE FOR FEDERAL INCOME TAX PURPOSES.
So yet another component of that blunt tool to mitigate financial risk is investment in dividend paying stocks in which the dividends are considered qualified.
I'll ride the storm till the dividend is cut, and then maybe that ..8% yield on that bank CD will look attractive.
Look, if you have a stake in the company, I doubt that anyone is forcing you to retain it.
Investment in common stocks, and it matters not what sector of the economy a company occupies is a risky venture. One's principal is at risk.
One's job like it or not is to mitigate that risk a difficult task to be sure. Dividend paying stocks such as COP at least afford one a tool however blunt that tool is as a means to mitigate that risk.
Banks have become nothing more than a warehouse for ones money. When a bank SCREAMS WE ARE OFFERING A TERRIFIC YIELD OF .8% on a 7 month CD, where is one going to go to get a yield to supply more than drips and drops of cash flow for their every day needs?
Are Lance and Sheets lying? Who the hell knows? All I know I'm not going to close my position in COP and place that money in that bank screaming about THEIR TERRIFIC .8%
Maybe you should be Jim Cramer's eventual successor.
Every day that one awakens to find themselves still upright, and still have the capacity to multitask by walking talking and chewing gum at the same time, without outside assistance is "tomorrow's the big day, today".
