Close proximity - spit or urine, feces thrown, etc. It would only take one macaque to pick it up and spread to the others. Original poster is right, and something I've been saying for months. Ebola is not a threat to the west, it just isn't. But what it ends up doing in Africa is another matter.
Interesting dynamic this morning with the two, LAKE and APT. LAKE began way up on APT but has come down with APT now well ahead.
Yes, that's a rarity for a stock 'in the news' so to speak, usually it's just hype. Not just zero debt, but approx $18M in net cash (not bad for a $60M MC). And if you throw in inventory of $14M, which is a pretty good bet considering recent events, you have $32M in net cash and liquid assets. That's more than half the MC. Hot space, great balance sheet, profitable, who knew?
That won't fly in this environment. Besides, I'm not sure that's true. Why would he do that? Plastic bags, yes and it make sense too, stupid things, but protective suits are different, they are used generally in a controlled environment and disposed of properly, they don't end up in land fills and in the middle of the ocean as a permanent, ugly, floating island of human idiocy and selfishnes.
Relax, holy split, this market is so f'n ready to die, it'll use any excuse. Of course there's going to be confirmed cases of Ebola here and there in the developed world, but as horrible as it is, it really doesn't stand a chance in a modern health care system. Then again, we are talking about the US, so I'm not so sure. If you have the money, best care in the world, if not, you die of Ebola.
The only way I can see this moving markets down on its own is if the US and other nations announce a moratorium on travel to and from a large swath of Western Africa, maybe all of sub Saharan Africa to be safe. Would be a stupid thing to do, but it would make a great excuse to finally bleed this bloated market.
Along with TVIX, UVXY, etc of course. But they are tricky and dangerous. APT makes disposable protective apparel for infection control and they also have a building supply division. It's profitable as it is, and sitting on a nice chunk of cash.
Overwhelmingly is correct. They have to shape their country on their own, without any more interference from the US or anybody else. Iran should be celebrating 61 years of democracy right now, but US and British intelligence had thought it best to install the Shah instead and that turned out great.
Down again another 0.9%, and about to break the 23000 floor. I am going to guess it recovers overnight though, mostly anyway. If it doesn't recover or even accelerates, it's serious.
Idiots. They hasn't a clue, brainwashed and sent skipping along, thinking they're independent thinkers, men of reason. In the old days, the real old days, kings and priests told people fantastic tales about how things came go be the way they were, and the people believed them. Now we have Fox News to tell us. Iran is a threat to no one. Did it ever occur to you that you're just bloodthirsty? Do you really know the people, the culture? More math is called for, it always puts things in perspective. On defence, Iran spends approx 1% (one percent) of what the US spends each year. You really think you're playing the good guys?
Same thing happened to ECYT, they finished bright red on good news - they are also flush with cash.
This can happen when market is getting ready to crash, as it appears to be. Hope I'm wrong, but it looks wobbly. Asian market tonight will tell.
