Actually, we are doing very nicely overseas - if the euro wasn't near yearly lows, we could be into the mid 14's.
I find Rev. Sharpton frustrating. At times he is very logical and reasonable. Sometimes, he does seem to be getting ahead of himself based upon speculations that turn out differently.
But in this case, the quotes I heard were rather reasonable and soothing. He said that Michael Brown would not want to be remembered for rioting, but rather for peaceful actions (or words to that effect).
yes, and when we hit book value, hopefully book value will be a little higher than 16.31.
but we are in a little of the doldrums now. the economy in Europe is hurting (the euro is at new lows), and the Russian/Ukraine is hurting. Even though oil prices are down, this isn't helping much. But the European economy will pick up. the euro will too. and if ING passes the next stress test, I think you will see a nice rise.
If we are lucky, maybe we will see 15 by the end of the year. But next year we should see 20+
Well, if it was 88 in the aftermarket yesterday, its not today. It's down nearly 50 cents
Don't really know why - maybe the pulling of the Time Warner offer - it really shouldn't matter, but if TW was worth so much, maybe some thought (accurately) that Disney was worth more, and the pulling of the offer lowered the bar.
Maybe a little disappointment on ESPN (although I would say that Fox's pulling its offer means that it is still at a disadvantage in competing with espn). And really, how much more can espn make? - Disney is still firing on all engines, and it has much to move with the movies (Avengers 2 and Star Wars) in the 18 months, and it also has Shanghai Disney opening which will boost the parks segment.
this movie will easily take in $1.5 billion, and 2 billion is possible.
but the real news is Guardians of the Galaxy. After taking in over $94 million in is first weekend, a shade under what Captain America did in its first weekend, it did over $11.5 on Monday which is about $5 million more than Captain America did on its first Monday - this bodes well for Guardians - it could easily beat Captain America's present nearly $260 million, and maybe press $300 million - this is really, really quite a haul. Disney was hoping for $65 million in its first weekend, and maybe a total domestic $200 million.
It may be that the overseas haul won't be so wonderful, as it is behind Captain America on an overseas basis. But I hope (I am an optimist) that this may catch fire overseas too.
Disney's earnings could be closer to $5 for the year, rather than the predicted $4 - this supports a price over 90 in the next few months, and I still think you will see over 120 within 18 months.
It will hit new highs by the end of the week.
And, if not, certainly within your time frame.
This stock is making, now, $4.50 a share/year. No reason for it not to be over 90.
The next quarter (the one we are in) will be tough. They said demand is low in the Gulf because customers are holding off due to the hurricane season, and consolidation of companies is causing some delay. They will be lucking to be in the black, although I am hopeful.
why do you think that MH (I assume you mean Monster High) will be a drag. It has been steadily increasing. And, if it misses, that may mean the Barbie sale will more than rebound (MH has been cannibalizing Barbie sales, and this will take pressure off of Barbie).
Listened to the recent presentation last nite.
They certainly were unapologetic about the Angola cancellations. and I can't criticize them - taking the higher road is the better course, and dealing in question deals won't come back to hurt them.
But the short term seems a little "choppy" (to use their term). With the present supply, customers seem to be holding off until the hurricane season is over. And next year depends upon the supply. But the recent buys by insiders certainly gives me a little confidence that that the stubborn optimism expressed at the presentation may bear out.
Yes, they have a history of missing estimates, sometimes good, sometimes bad. The bad is certainly frustrating.
But on the next quarterly report, I have some hope - first, because the estimates have been taken down a little, second because they may well have worked through their inventory problem the last quarter (one reason for their miss last quarter), third because Easter is in this quarter instead of last year's prior quarter, and fourth, perhaps the most important, is "Frozen" - they have at least a couple of licenses, and this this very very hot (no pun intended).
Barbie and hot wheel sales may be still a drag, but they are trying to upgrade at least Barbie, and that may be good.
when an elephant flies, you can't complain when it comes down.
but this really has held up ok, keeping most of its gains without really much news. and hero is the stepchild in a sector that many have a dim view of - Ensco's monthly report indicated a nice new contract for a deep water rig, and all the "experts" say that this is too high and not indicative of what down side nature of the industry.
patience - all this means that we need to turn profits.
And if it does reflect the spin off as of now (which I think it does), that means that twx is really trading at about 74, not 71.50, which is really a nice amount over its high.
It seems to be at a "when issued" price of about 22 as of today.
But I have a better question - does the twx price refliect that the Time Inc. stock has been spun off already?
