the only thing that could possibly make up for a bad qtr is him saying the execs are taking a huge paycut in addition to no stock options and bonuses
considering the amount you say you own and the apparent free time you have, why aren't you at the meeting?
I think at this time, the activists will take $6 as well as they bought in lower. Insiders have to know this is their last rodeo, one way or another.
Just can't see them staying independent no matter what. If they do well, then the sell price moves up. If not, then they sell for 2X sales
I am guessing they want $12. More likely they finally realize they will only get $6 or $85M, 2X sales. I am betting this happens this year
Private equity, FLTX, ORBC, MIXT, all likely buyers.
with all the water issues the country faces, you should look into one of my favorites, AWK. Largest US water co, member of DJ Util Index (only water co in the 15 member index). Decent dividend, steady growth. A little high here. Look for a pullback for entry. Boring stock, just goes up a little every year.
pay packages, BOD seats, anything else, will be voted down. Activists own over 1/3 of the company. Pretty much everyone else, besides insiders, are ticked off.
301,058 to be exact. all-time high record for 30 days. May hit 800K this quarter.
if this #$%$ you off, you should know the CEO's wife used to work for the company too.
The former CEO's Aunt was on the BOD. she died. His father was also a founder and brought in jr to be CEO.
problem is, by "we" do you mean just the US and not the rest of the world? Cause that is the net affect of closing a factory here and opening it up in some other country. That is what the "green" folks don't get.
Calls for introducing a Financial Transaction Tax have grown since the financial crisis and the Great Recession, and the concept has been just below the surface of many recent discussions of tax reform in the U.S. But before any debate over the idea heats up, a new study from the Tax Policy Center busts some of the myths surrounding the tax and comes up with a bottom line finding that, if properly implemented, it could raise $50 billion a year without seriously affecting the operation of the financial markets.
folks are spoiled, They don't know what it's like to actually go hungry or cold. There is no draft so they don't see awful places like the Middle East up close.
Why have an income limit on SS? I've paid, between me and company, $300K into SS over my lifetime. If I collect at 62, I won't see my money paid back to me until age 78, never mind reinvested capital. Worst investment ever. There are many ways around means testing SS. I could sock my money away in gold coins and go sell a few every month for cash and actually look poor. Or I could buy collectible cars and sell 1 for cash every yr, etc.
