Is PLUG's technology price competitive vs existing energy platforms?
Probably not Therefore if you are an individual whose job performance is predicated upon bottom line results, do you think that "green" options will be selected when that "green" option increases cost of doing business?
Your employer will no longer have need for your services for failure to minimize the "green"
that the business expended to operate.. You'll have all the time in the world to go styling and profiling with Nature Boy Ric Flair on his next excursion to Space Mountain.
If you see Tipper Gore on Space Mountain, can you let me know if she still has a double chin?
Health care REIT's appear to an attractive play in the years ahead
We are an aging society that will live longer Boomers will require assistance at various levels of need. The unfortunate reality is that some of us will have children who won't be in the position to provide that assistance . A small percentage won't want to be bothered
Some boomers who chose not to have children will have no family to turn to for that assistance.
While in the surface all of us old timers would prefer to live and stay in our own homes, many of us will not be physically able to Some of us who have not established an emotional bond to their residence will be seeking alternative living arrangements
Utilization of direct medical care services should only increase in the years ahead.
The marketplace will provide those options. It will need literately brick and mortar structures ie real estate to deliver those services. Rents will be generated from these brick and mortar assets,
Therefore, I believe that a health care REIT with the attractive yields that many provide, are and should be in each and every investor's investment portfolio. The key I believe is which REIT's are invested in those areas of the country that contain large groups of seniors who
would want or require the need of such services.
s are invo .
Who do you believe should head this "new qualified management team, YOU?
I have just begun to learn something about this REIT and one thing does concern me.
If any one amongst Sunrise, Genesis or Brookdale should decide to no longer partner with Welltower, how significantly would this impair Welltower's operations?
From your comments, it appears that you currently enjoy a net unrealized loss in your position with this investment
Given This REIT's dividend payment history, and their focus on the senior housing market, makes this an attractive investment long term,, even when interest rates eventually rise.
If your investment time horizon is short term (less professional expression to make a fast buck), I'm not sure that any REIT would be appropriate for you.;
If you deal with a financial planner (advisor) I recommend that you set up a meeting with him (her) and review (revisit) your financial objectives.
p- values, standard deviations, third moment about the mean, 50/200 day moving averages/resistance/ my proprietary computer model, the CNBC blonde's take on the market ,Lynn Tilton's patented CDO's financial packages, the throw the dart method, Cramer/T Boone Pickens/Warren Buffet yipping one thing I know for sure, I've got a headache
Our grandparents didn't need pivot tables, charts, regression analysis when they ran their businesses. They knew what their customers wanted and needed. They knew them as people, they knew their customers wants and needs and they delivered
On a less serious note, perhaps now is the time to call in that Diva of Distressed Companies Patriarch Partner CEO Lynn Tilton to the rescue.
If she sold all her fancy stones, and one of her mansions, she could easily raise the cash that MBLX needs to take their business to the next level.
Stay thirsty my friends, sayeth the World's most interesting man as he implores you to drink more Dos Equios beer.
That requires one to increase more consumption of salty foods, ie JNJ Snacks
So for all of you out there who wish to continue to see the World's Interesting Man in the company of two lovely damsels young enough to be his granddaughters under each arm, please consume more JNJ snacks and "wash it down" with that Dos Equios beer.
Given how far how fast this stock has gone south, that does not say much for those of us who have maintained a long position for a significant period of time.
Sounds to me like how Art Modell responded on why he moved the Cleveland Browns to Baltimore, "I had no choice" For you just substitute the word :"have" (present tense) for "had" (past tense)
As the "sharks" on Shark Tank say all too frequently to the aspiring entrepreneur trying to grow their business "I'm Out" I took my loss and moved on. Good luck to you and I do sincerely hope that PDL meets your investment objectives.
Right, and Patriarch Partners CEO Lynn TIlton's daughter, and former Hadassah CFO Sheryl Weinstein's son will be profiled as America's next power millennial couple.
That's about the probability that the stock of PFE will double.
What it probably means that investors who purchased PFE for the dividend, may very well have to consider the risk that the dividend will be cut or eliminated. A critical decision for those of us who rely in the dividend received from PFE to fund their respective household operations.
Also consider this. PFE's dividend is a qualified dividend. Those of us in the 10 or 15% tax bracket currently enjoy paying 0% tax on its distributions. Will the dividend (assuming one remains once all regulatory hurdles world wide relating to all aspects of said proposed merger are cleared) of this combined company enjoy "qualified" status as a foreign corporation? If not the dividend is taxed at ordinary income rates.
Which means less dollars in your pocket to fund your respective household operation.
A meeting with one's financial advisor and or tax accountant may be advisable for certain Pfizer investors.
Yes there is much for an investor in Pfizer common stock to consider these upcoming days.
Certainly not enough to attract the attention of former Hadassah CFO Sheryl Weinstein. She is searching for new friends with substantial financial means. This of course is a result of her prior "association" with Bernard Madoff, who no longer has the ability to serve in that capacity.
The Metabolix;s of the world, are high risk investments, that one enters into knowing or should knowing that either all or a substantial part of their investment could disappear.
The one "constant" in the US Tax Code has been that capital losses are first applied against capital gains and then any excess losses can only be deducted up to $3000.00 (well the holding period for long/short term status has varied) can be used to offset ordinary income. on any one year. So we cannot look to Uncle Sugar
to recoup our investment losses
No one likes to lose money, and perhaps my unrealized loss position pales in comparison with yours.
I will just say that I had some what I like to call "risk" capital that I was willing to lose in its entirety,in hopes of striking it "large" Metabolix was my choice.
It is still a going concern, and as long as it is I'm in the game
. I guess I will follow the simple advice as given by World Wrestling entertainer Bo Dallas, "all you got to do is BOLEEEVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Become a professional poker player on the WPT poker tour
Who wouldn't want to sit at the Royal Flush Bar and have an opportunity to discuss poker strategies with the Royal Flush Girls.?
Did the WPT reduce the number of Royal Flush girls that make TV appearances?
As we approach year end, Kinder Morgan may be a sell for those investors who have large capital gains that need to be offset.
If the dividend is in jeopardy, and I am an investor who counts on dividend income as a cash inflow for my ordinary and necessary expenses, I'd close my position in Kinder and invest in some other
dividend producing stock.
Finally, these MLP's never get their K-1's distributed before March 15. Then one scrambles to get all required documents to their tax preparers who by this time are buried in work. Sometimes, good luck getting your return filed before April 15
`As an MLP I can only offset my passive losses against passive gains from other MLP'S until such time I divest my entire interest in the activity. To say nothing about how much more my CPA charges
for preparing a tax return that requires reporting of the MPL activity and tracking all my my passive gains/losses.
Under all those scenarios, I'd get out of Dodge and invest my money elsewhere outside the MPL
Perhaps a former associate of Patriarch Partners CEO Lynn Tilton.
Those who know Ms. Tilton personally would understand.
Absolute bottom is zero of course. Actual bottom who knows?
Kinder Morgan may present itself as a sell to those who have realized capital gains to date that need to be offset by capital losses.
Furthermore those investors who bought Kinder Morgan for income may wish to consider taking the proceeds from their respective sale and invest in some other company that will provide them a
comparable cash flow stream,albeit with a lesser risk.
At current yields, one would think that investors would be flocking into acquiring shares, which would send the price of this stock northward. That apparently is not happening.
I'd have to say the risk of KMI reducing their dividend at least in the short term is high.
May as well become a professional poker player on the WPT tour.
At least you get to meet and discuss investment strategies with the lovely Royal Flush Girls, once you get eliminated from the tournament
The downside would be the possibility of spending time with the insufferable Vince Van Patten.
I still would like to know more about Van Patten's comment regarding Kardashian sisters and Saturday night.
Whatever became of Kimberly Lansing, and Vince's sister-in-law Shana Hiatt?
Instead of attending an Ivy League school, the youngsters may have to attend the State school nearest to their home and commute to campus on a daily basis from the parental home. The kids will remain living at home for at least 4 or perhaps more years !!!!????
Tell me college educated citizen, how much time did you expend during your college attending years living away from home for presumably the first time paying a very hefty premium vs the local university so that you could enjoy unrestricted access , to "educational opportunities" that did nothing to enhance your marketability for a prospective employer.
Those 'educational endeavors" are available as well at your friendly local University.
But you say that by remaining at home, there are rules and regulations that make it more difficult for one from participating in many of such "educational opportunities".
