Whoa here 'icky' ... you're getting a little "racist" AGAIN here aren't YOU ??
How would you like it if I told you - "YOU better pack 'your' bags and think about moving back to Africa" !! .. and PAY your own way ya kool-aid drinkin fool, cause all the free tickets are gone :-)
Not sure about just prior to divy date ?
It could be some sort of regulation ? or might be a breach of fiduciary responsibility to play their own stocks on specific date. I wonder if this is a (SEC) sticky/gray area ? Lots of SEC rules here.
If I recall correctly, when T was doing their previous 2012 ? buyback, it was usually 3 or 4 times a week .. may have been many staggered weeks within those 3 mos - (per quarter) ???
But I do recall the millions & millions of shares that popped up A. H., maybe 3 to 4 time avg. ?
o - Hillary-Care was the concept of BILL Clinton in the mid 90's.. and was a complete unexpected surprise on Americans AND a 'complete' unamimous REJECTION by a bipartison Congress
Hillary & her goon squad were given the credit .. to detatch THE President from ownership - a strategic move !
o - The Mass. ACA was adopted by MITT because Mass. wanted it - and HE was Gov. of a Democratic controlled State, therefore giving the majority residence what THEY WANTED.
The PEOPLE WERE the Boss and MITT did NOT "stack the deck" to get his way OR the Republican's way.
This is NOT a 'one size fits all' society - what's good for Mass. isn't neccessarily good for ALL States, dasa fact
o - Unlike the "hook & kr0ok" demonstrated by Harry, Nancy et al. .. the Ruling Democratic CONTROLLED (Obama) Congress.
Then Harry's second TRICK again (2012?) when he changed Congressional Rules, by his own accord to make a "simple majority" VOTE for cloture - after he lost his get his nuclear 'advantage' here
Btw you're welcome .. but thanks for your "SPIN" anyway little toot-toot ....
Do you want something that's REALLY "most" SHOCKING to you ??
"Here it is again" ... Stick your tongue in an energized light socket ;-) .. then ask yourself "Who asked you for any "explanations"?? .. (you're welcome :-)
(aw man, well dang) - tig, you were being very nice to this jerk .. and clastic's response just magicly disappeared ? :-)
clastic said .. he didn't have to "jump" .. (with some smard alec 'no no's)
Holding T for 4 to 5 yrs, it was cheap it the time .. and it was AT&T .... there is a history between Tmus & AT&T
By curiousity I started some DD on Tmus insiders, the Trade history, then the CEO's antics etc.
AT&T has a Business Model & Business reputation .. Tmus has a vendetta model againts AT&T with very little clout or 'leverage' (jmho) - and I doubt enough funds to continue with this charade.
Deutsche Telekom has moved Tmus (Main) Hqtrs to Europe for anticipated sale/merger with Softbanks Sprint - another flop ??
Spectrum is is very important with any telecom ..
Read "smalls_62" posts, good info on any possible European future ?
Oh my (he's back) ... i guess little 'icky' has been REAL busy ??
Polishing those doe knobs & hood ornaments, getting ready for the Rev. Al (the $2mil. tax cheat & racist Corp shake-down artist) to take his rightful 'beneath the desks' (your spot) place beside/with el presidente'
I wonder where they're planning to deploy their "jack-booted" THUGS this time.- oh never mind, I see he withdrew the "Soc. Sec. branch" of his Domestic Army from back-billing another American .. from THEIR S.S "error" of overpayments to that (now adult) child's parents from YEARS Back
BTW, since you've been gone have YOU earned enough to "pay for your own stuff" or do you still play kissey-face & slurp-slurp for your Kool-Aid & other bennies ??
THREE CHEERS for the Militia, the Ranchers, and just damn good freedom loving Citizens tired of big Govt. under Obama !!
Those BLM "jack-booted" THUGS .. under Obama & Holder, have packed-up their 'sheet' and skidaddled back to Washington
YEP, that was gonna REAL nasty, and Obama & Holder will STILL be forced to take ownership of this Govt. 'over-reach' on it's citizens !!
Now we've got to STOP the IRS from billing 'children' of any parent that died, with the mistake of "overpayments" by the IRS - OR 'any' a tax bill not incurred by their children !!
Just another "jack-booted THUG" branch of Govt that has blossomed under the WANTS of the Obama & Holder Regime
I could go on and on with this topic, but November is just around the corner :- ]
Careful there 'tig' - don't argue with boston. He's the new Barny Fife deputy here, and apparently the only poster here allowed to make his predictions.
Boston just jumped on 'hrod' (this thread) warning him that this is not allowed - and that he (hrod) is no longer allowed to post on this board because he said he sold his T-stock :-)
Careful there hrod57, boston is watching you.
He's the (new) "Barny Fife" deputy here on the T-board. - (or Barny Frank ?)
Yes, I believe it was a " hotstockpicks, google them" message on the one that was deleted about 7 pm , leaving the rest of the copy/cut/paste (harassment) msgs?
I bought both a few years back, 'as competative momentum & divy stocks', so much for that strategy ?
The bright side is - although the momentum has flopped, I'm still ahead, but not as much as @ $39.
I'm looking for a better year this year ?
It looks like 'n-telos' and another smaller 'wireless telecom' have now jumped into the frey.
Perhaps more of a negative effect on Tmus & Sprint rather that AT&T and VZ ?
Smalls .. he was a new spammer from last evening with 1 willing accomplice.
He posted 1 spam message (deleted by the host) - but duplicated & posted 4 other mssgs by other T-board posters, which I can't seem to get deleted without help ?? It seems to be their new 'trick' and has been showing up frequently of late?
"ignoring" them is like sweeping the dirt under the rug"
I report them as quick as possible with a "thumbs down" & "report abuse" -. It helps keep the T-board clean ???
Correct robertfba .. example of the "unknown unknowns" in a 6 month time frame on one of my accts with no contributions other than drip .. between extremes
o - June 30 2008 = $237K
o - Jan 1 2009 = 182.5K
o - March 1 2009 = 160K
o - today = 447.5K
When I bought AT&T (and VZ), not depending on predictions, T was about $24 per shr in March 2009 - topped out to 39, then dropped to 32.
People depending on predictions should be prepared to ride the waves without crying.
As we know, these unknowns will appear without warning, that's the market .. and a tale of politics since the Clinton administration & Greenspan's Fed
WHAT ? YOU tell us what the share price WILL BE .. your thoughts, and WHY !!
(6 mos. from now) - Never mind, you'd just be GUESSING the market & AT&T !! (asking another stupid prediction)
Start with a drop in the amount of the 'divy' ... who knows after that ? It may rise ?
BTW, now a question for you .. do you think your question was a smart one or a dumb one, or should YOU guess .. now tell us what YOU think, and WHY ? (never mind, it REALLY doesn't require an answer)
Sure it always drops ! You won't necessarily see it on historical prices either.
You've got to spot it when the "prev. close & pre-mkt math" disagree, or drops $.46
You're absolutely correct 'smalls .. I'm about 30 miles out from Richmond in a (now populated area about 5 yrs or more).
From from the technology tools we have available (VZ engineers) and to any rural field repair tech (and others) .. from my field experience, we've always used GPS co-ordinates,
These VZ field techs also use them. I expect they may log them & attach them to the accounts as we did.
(i was never connected with telecoms)
There is a LARGE breakdown in communications between VZ, my P.O. zip location .. that does not accurately reflect my residential location, which is considerably more populated than my Post Office loc. (GPS co-ord)
To further confuse things, my residential 'area code & prefix' is far different than my P.O. 'area code' .. and I'm on a local Richmond exchange (area code & pre-fix).
The town my area code & echange is on (15 mi. away) in another county. Their 'Courthouse proper' has everything I'm not privy to, and in 3 direction with 100 % toward Richmond.
The cell tower (for me) is along I-64 in their county and about 20 mi. from my physical Post Office (zip) .. yet I'm only about 4 mi. from 1-64 and the VZ cell tower.
I get mixed answers from field techs working my area as to the DSL access point .. one said 2 miles away (straight line to my house) .. two said "they didn't know".
However the main point being .. with my cell tower being only about 4 miles away (straight line) and my "previous excellent cell reception" .. What's VZ's problem (?) .. are they using home 'zip code' instead of my "cell area code" & cell tower phone ping" ? (explained at nauseum)
Just info for VZ's lack of unneccesary POOR infrastructure enhancements (3G/4G) upgrades - they won't listen to their Cust. that are affected by their diminished quality.
P.S. and they have the technology to determine ones Dropped Calls - but no refunds to you bill (minutes) unless you notify them .. this is from actual personal experience - see what I mean ??
So my service from a VZ tower has been "diminished" in the name of advanced technology (?) and "SMART Phones" still WILL NOT WORK at my house (neighborhood) .. when it was PERFECT prior to late 2011 ??
What part of this do YOU NOT UNDERSTAND ??
WOW, that's SOME investment on "infrastructure !! .. ALL over America" from the 2 TOP U.S Telecoms
TRUST ME .. I'm not "rooting" for SPRINT, but if that's all that's available then that's what I'll take .. like I said before, VZ & AT&T need to look out for America FIRST - My landline is copper wire, which I prefer to keep .. and DSL is STILL "not" available in my neighborhood - FACT
All VZ needs to do is BUMP the power back to it's original 2011 level !! HAS AT&T followed this pattern also ??
