    Divvy hype

    True but please keep this in mind.

    COP dividends are (at least for now) classified as qualified dividends. Dividends received from qualified dividends are taxed at 0% if the taxpayer is in the 10 % or 15% tax bracket for 2014.

    The Chasidic community in New York.

    A growing population, characterized by large families many with at least 5 children, with 10 not being uncommon.

    Suggest that a MALE SALES REP be the contact person entering this community. Avoid initiating contact on Saturday's and most Jewish holidays.

    Entitlement is a scenario when one receives something and offers NOTHING IN RETURN.

    These senior citizens have made an investment in the company. They have "skin" in the "game" They have taken a risk. THEY HAVE COMMITTED THEIR PERSONAL RESOURCES IN THIS COMPANY.Their distributions are NOT ENTITLEMENTS!!!

    And yes, management has a fiduciary responsibility to MANAGE AND PROTECT THEIR INVESTMENTS. Prior management by loading up on debt for ill fated ventures FAILED THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The small investor gets screwed and the prior management team disappears under their "golden parachutes.

    Aren't these severance packages ENTITLEMENTS AS WELL?????????

    As we approach year end, now is the time to be speaking with your accountant regarding year end tax planning.

    Your income in 2014 might be low enough that any capital gains you may earned or could earn would be taxed at 0%. If so, selling all or a portion of your position in Metabolix (presumably at a loss) would have no tax advantage. Save those unrealized losses (if applicable).

    We can all agree on one thing, Changes in tax law are as perennial as the wind. Will the 0% tax on capital gains at certain income levels be extended beyond 2014? I am not certain, but I believe at this time the answer may be no.

    If the 0% rate disappears, , then if capital gains in 2015 and beyond are taxed at say 15%, you might want to use the loss generated from the sale of Metabolix to reduce potential realized capital gains from sales of other securities in your portfolio.

    Conversely, if your realized or to be realized capital gains trigger say the investment tax/medicare tax thresholds, or places your capital gains in the 15% bracket, you might want to close that portion of Metabolix needed to avoid said tax positions.

    Please consult with your tax advisor before making any decisions regarding your final decision regarding your position in Metabolix. That couple of hundred bucks you will spend will be well worth it.

    This is one circumstance I believe that tax considerations play an important role as to whether you should hold or sell.

    Triple H take note.

    Invest your money in guys like the Rock, not clowns like Lesnar who do absolutely nothing to enhance and build your product.

    xELL even ancient talents like Hogan Foley and Flair can put more fannies in the seats than Lesnar.
    Sorry Triple H, you are burning considerable cash on this less than part time performer who requires someone else to do his talking for him. And I think we can all agee that a talent today must
    demonstrate superior public speaking skills in this business to day in order sufficent fan "heat" to elevate himself to main event status

    Guys from NXT like Rusev and Adam Rose are one trick ponies. Their gimmicks are good for a short term pop, maybe for a period of maybe one year. They and their gimmicks are NOT sustainable main event performers.

    I think we can all agree that their is a current shortage of main event performers on the roster. Can ZIggler Bray Wyatt Shemus and Cesaro assume those roles if given a chance. Yes they can. Does talent from NXT need to be brought to the main roster with the expectation that a couple them become potentially main eventers?. Yes. If Impact Wrestling folds its tent, do they have talent that can be used in the WWE as main event performers?. Samoa Joe, Austin Aries Bobby Roode YES! AJ Styles wherever he is today? ABSOLUTELY!

    Vince might consider taking this company private.

    Enjoy the dividend while you can.

    You sound like the Washington Mayorial candidate Connie Schwartz standing on two sewer covers telling the voters that to address the problem of an ever more stratified city, she would create a cabinet level Mayor's Office of Disparity Solutions, the purpose of which would be to work across government agencies to provide solutions on bridging divides.

    Perhaps you are her campaign advisor.
