As long as Vince is chair, I believe the dividend will remain at its current level, That makes WWE an attractive
income stock. at the stock's current price. While there certainly a significant risk that its price can drop further, that risk I feel is mitigated by the fact that your friendly neighborhood bank is nothing more than a warehouse for your money with what you can earn (zip and pip an expression created by that WPT analyst Vince Van Patten) while on deposit with them while one can potentially earn tax free dividends since the dividends paid by WWE are currently considered by Uncle Sugar as qualified . A nice benefit for middle class Americans.
As professional (fake) wrestling star Kurt Angle would say, ITS REAL ITS DAMN REAL !!!! And of course his fellow superstar Ric Flair would chime in by saying WOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thus if you have money to invest, I think WWE is worth parking some cash into at the present time.
Once Vince is gone, and if Triple H, Stephanie or for that matter Vince's wife Linda becomes his successor, I'd IMMEDIATELY CLOSE YOUR POSITION , And that's the bottom line because STONE COLD SAYS SO!!!!!
IF YOU CAN SMELLLLLLLLLLLLL WHAT THE ROCK IS COOKIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Closing remark by Mick Foley
(afa Cactus Jack, Mankind to the wrestling fan) Have a nice day!
Forget the legal vultures. My advice to you (especially for the small individual investor) is to SELL NOW, pay Uncle Sugar his take, as well as your state governor (where applicable) his/her piece of the action, and walk away and enjoy the rest of the profit.
Maybe MCP will distribute to their shareholders on record at the close of business today a "piece of the rock" of one of those rare earth minerals.
Just something to remember the company by.
It means even more admin costs that adds no value whatsoever to the operation.
From the investors point of view, should this stock becomes entirely worthless, perhaps it is feasible that one can deduct as a total loss in the year the stock is deemed worthless ones basis in MCP in it's entirety, irrespective of offsetting against ones potential capital gains against ones capital loss in MCP.
Check with your tax advisor.
Do you run a retreat that the investment genius Aviantruth visits along side his buddy the worlds's most interesting man the Dos Equinos alongside their entourage bevy of lovely damsels?
Now if MCP goes bankrupt, what will be left for Aviantruth to short? And where will be generate the cash required in order to retrofit his luxury barge , visit your retreat, and keep the damsels happy?
Kevin what attributes do you believe are necessary for a woman to be considered attractive in your eyes?
Perhaps the attributes of Honey Boo-Boo's mama, who's English is so bad, that they have to provide closed captioning on their programming so one can understand what she is trying to say?
Maybe she should be running WWE? As the Nature Boy would say WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Speaking of the Natch perhaps he should consider joining the talk circuit ala Mick Foley. In all seriousness the stories that Flair could share with audiences should be able earn him a few bucks to help him alleviate some of his cash flow problems. I would attend and yes I'd be willing to pay upwards of $35.00
to hear some of Flair's styling and profiling antics during his wrestling career. WOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!
If nothing else, an attractive dividend yield.
Asuming that the McMahon family still holds the vast majority of the shares, I believe the dividend will not be cut due to the fact that WWE is a qualified dividend, which is taxed at a rate no greater than 23.9% for the McMahon family members. (at least for now) Less of a tax burden than to pay the McMahon's salary
I think it is a misnomer to consider the WWE a monopoly. In the entertainment sector WWE has competition from UFC, professional sports in general, and to a much lesser extent, other professional wrestling ventures. Certainly miles ahead of everyone else in the wrestling segment of entertainment.
SInce paper certificates were eliminated years ago, you can no longer wipe your backside with an MCP stock certificate. At least you still can with toilet tissue.
A disciple of Aviantruth, no doubt this jj719903.
Living G-d, perhaps to his lovely lady friends who accompany him and Aviantruth on their luxury barges on their good ships named The Minnow and Lollipop, setting sail on a multi-hour tour (to nowhere)
Keep the cards shuffled, (hire Mike Sexton and Vince Van Patten as dealers(poker instructors) the music playing the spirits flowing (and not that Dos Equinos swill, not acceptable to the ladies) and don't forget to include as special guests the Royal Flush damsels (what's four more guests) . Perhaps you too jj719903 can find yourself one day sitting at a final table at a WPT event.
This is Aviantruth we are talking about the only investment guru you will ever need.
I guess he's back from his trip on his luxury barge with those lovely ladies, who probably helped him spend most if not all of his gains from his rare earth shorting activities.
Wonder how he's doing with his Farcebook (nee Faceboook) trading activities? Nothing left to short in the rare earth sector, at least not enough to keep his lady friends entertained in the manner they have been grown used to enjoying.
Alternative energy is not an attractive alternative to traditional fossil fuels at this time due to cost considerations.. Companies can proclaim themselves as promoters of "green" methods. but the bottom line is this.
The shareholders and Wall Street still have a short term mindset. Therefore, companies are going to spend their dollars in such a matter that maximizes profits here and now.
The Street punishes companies who fail to meet their quarterly revenue and profit projections.
Now that is not to say that PLUG is a company to avoid investing in. Alternative energy sources need to demonstrate that they can produce energy at a cost approximately equal to fossil fuels. Can they?
Perhaps they can? How long a time line before that happens? Can PLUG continue to be a going concern, how long will investors "stay the course" and provide the capital to keep PLUG a going concern ?
Don't bet the farm on PLUG. If action, and not patience is your mind set take the money , enter a WPT poker event, and you too can perhaps be on television sitting at the final table, with the chance to meet the world renown Vince Van Patten and get to here his "exclusive opinions" about the Kardashian Sisters, that get edited from the TV broadcasts. Let us not forget, what under 30 year old male would not jump at the chance to share drinks with the Royal Flush damsels?
Still don't know why VInce's comment, when co-host Mike Sexton asked about his opinion of who he favored to win at the final table on one of the broadcast, and he commented "Mike this field is more wide open than a Kardashian sister on a Saturday night"did not get edited.
I enjoy reading these posts. It does provide one with some comic relief.
In any event, I believe that most of us can agree that this is a speculative stock. I don't pretend to begin understanding the product(s) or technologies of MBLX and quite frankly I do really do not need to because I have only a miniscule long position with this company, with risk capital that I am willing to lose in its entirety. If I lose it, so be it. If MBLX does become a commercially viable company, then this stock should l one day exceed my 1.71 basis.
Therefore this is my position,. The technology being touted APPEARS (And I can't emphasize the word APPEARS ENOUGH) to be exciting and a game changer. At least at the point if one has cash to expend and not worry about losing it in its entirely, at this current share price, I'd be a buyer. Unfortunately, I do not have any more risk capital to invest.
Now perhaps, if one desires potential immediate return and satisfaction, take your $10,000 or so, enter a WPT event instead and maybe you will get the opportunity and get to meet the world renown Mike Sexton Vince Van Patten and the lovely Kimberly Lansing.. Your chances of coming out ahead in one of their tournaments are certainly no better than investing in MBLX at its current price . Now if potentially sitting at the bar with the Royal Flush damsels is important to you, than forget about MBLX
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Is any investment decision a result of undue influence? Anyone approach you to say, it is in your best interest to invest in MCP? No, it is made by men and women who have done their due dillingace albeit in various ways,.
I bought this stock several years ago, with risk capital I could comfortably lose if this stock tanked. Which it did (still does (lost most of it and closed out my remaining position and moved on.
Getting rid of Lesnar can only help the bottom line. Paying this clown the money he is getting for his limited appearances that he makes, has had to make morale especially poor amongst the full time talents who have been carrying their lunchpails every week and busting their backsides.
Triple H, please continue utilizing NXT as the source for new talents entering the main roster.
Promote from withhin.
If you do feel the need to bring in talents who are performing outside WWE, be VERY SELECTIVE, ON WHO THOSE TALENTS ARE. AJ Styles, absolutely Can't think of anyone else as of this posting who have left Impact Wrestling that would be memorable in the wrestling world.
Well, if the end is indeed imminent, in the words of that famous Cleveland car dealership operator the late great , C Miller and I quote:
" I started in this business with nothing, I left this business with nothing, but I had a good time in-between.
My total risk capital, may well become "too low for zero" , but it has been a nice ride .
Welcome back Aviantruth.
Time to once again continue your shorting activities. Them thar ladies do have high cash flow requirements
On a more serious note, I understand that at the TLC pay per view, at the Q, floor seats 4th row from the stage carried a face value of $ 350.00 each.
Why ANYONE would pay this much money to attend a sports entertainment event is beyond my limited comprehension. If there is anyone out there, that thinks this is sustainable, please explain to us the logic of this.
Sir, are you suggesting that Ms. McMahon and the Nature Boy have had discussions about the wrestling business at Space Mountain?
