    There is nothing unusual about the announcement just a few days from the report date.
    Normal procedure for the company.

    Well, this 'theory' just blew up after hours today. Time to leave this loser at the station.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • 600,000 to 350,000 to 100,000 share blocks going on now. Interesting! Volume nearly 30 mil
    and has exceeded normal 30 day volume already. And there is another 1.40 hours left of trading.
    This could exceed 40 mill today.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Believe me I'm in the game. My purchase today was my 96th purchase in the past few years with NO sales.
    My largest position in what 'could' be a huge winner. But one never knows about any stock in this crazy stock market. So have to diversify but accentuate your holdings in potentially strong stocks.

    I think you may be wrong here. Even a broken clock is correct 2 times daily....

  • Stock hitting new sessions highs as I write. Volume over 22 million shares. I added even more shares.
    Anyone selling now is a FOOL. This is the beginning of something big. It has been in the works.
    This stock could be a HUGE winner in the next couple or 3 years. BUY BUY BUY BUIY BUIY BUY

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Checked it out. Great article. Like the closing when SA stated that they saw no reason why this stock should not hit its highs prior to 2008. The price then hit in the $ 40's per share.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • edblue1003 edblue1003 Apr 13, 2015 5:17 PM Flag

    Many LOSERS have been 'hanging in there' for close to 25 years with NO dividend.
    So, how much more 'patience' should these LOSERS demonstrate? Good grief!

    Everybody hates these stocks. That's why I added shares today.

  • edblue1003 edblue1003 Mar 31, 2015 12:50 PM Flag

    During this mercurial correction this is a fantastic stock to either start or add to a position. Just got a nice dividend from LVS and bought some more shares at this cheap price in my IRA. The risk to reward is just too good to ignore at this price. Short term could still be a little nebulous but long term looks really good.

  • Liveris coming on CNBC to discuss merger with Olin. For what it's worth, Cramer is talking about huge expectations about this association. Thinks stock will advance much further once Liveris explains details of this merger.
    Stock up over 4% currently pre-market.

    Annual Report

    by celesteshop Mar 26, 2015 7:15 AM
    edblue1003 edblue1003 Mar 26, 2015 4:55 PM Flag

    First, I have on IGNORE both newemaillouis and sub4guy. Never have to read their inane blogs again. No input from them going forward. Second, I will be looking for my annual report.
    I like what this company is doing. And thanks for the good input that is MEANINGFUL, not a lot of blatherskite. Short term the
    correction has been tough but the markets always are. Always invest in a company in which you understand and have conviction to withstand temporary corrections. If not, the shorts and market manipulation will get ya. I like confirmation and Klaus
    is 'spot on'. A dynamic CEO with a understandable message.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    So let me make this example simple for everyone. In the current situation you were receiving $1,000 yearly dividends ($ 1 x 1,000 shares). With this new scenario you now will receive a TOTAL dividends of $ 579.60 ($2.40 x 200 CSAC + .60 x 166 WIN). In short,
    you receive a REDUCTION of yearly dividends vs. today of $ 420.40 or 42.04%.
    Disc: No position in WIN.

    You guys quibble over about 30 cents a share on a stock that may really run now. How petty!
    I added more shares today on this my largest holding. And I bought at a higher price than this morning. I wanted to see resistance off its lows. Great sign today on both price and volume action for upside potential. And I'm not looking for a weeks run but 2-3 YEAR run.

    Everything you cited is correct. I began buying this stock in 2009 in the $5 range. Very small position then.
    Living in Germany for 5 years (in the food business) I always admired the German work ethic. Siemens is an excellent example of German ingenuity and intelligence. Kleinsfeld came from Siemens to turnaround this company after it collapsed. I began buying more shares when I learned more of his background. I believe he is the right guy in the right place. Therefore, I began adding, adding, and adding more shares many of which were in the $ 7 and $ 8 range. I have bought recently as high as $16 and as low as last Friday in the $12+ area.
    Just in my regular account alone I have purchased shares 92 additional times since my original purchase with no sales. Like you, I have a 2-3 year horizon and (anticipate) a $25 price and, perhaps, beyond. This stock is now my largest holding.
    Anything can happen in a stock but I believe the downside is limited. Heck, when the commodity was higher and the company 'lived off' only the upstream business the stock hit in the $ 40's just 7 years ago. And the
    dividend was CONSIDERABLY higher. Now with Kleinsfeld accentuating the mid and downstream side of the business (and successfully thus far) it can only add to the bottom line which has been demonstrated in the last several quarterly reports (beating analysts expectations both on the top and bottom line). If the spot price on the commodity side should improve (like it did recently) and hold it will only add to the bottom line and
    pressure the price of the stock to the upside. Lately has been positive for the shorts but things can change rapidly. But I just continue to add on the dips and will continue to do so. I, too, am retired but have been investing since I was 13 years old. It's fascinating and sometimes tough to take but one must have a plan and if something happens adjust accordingly. Good luck to ya!

    It's the 6th of April. I just added more shares off the low today. I guess if I liked it at $14.50 I should 'love' it at $12.80....

    Can the Management really do their job in transition?

    And I've seen the street WRONG a plethora of times. This company has a great CEO who came from SIEMENS which is one of the best companies in the world. He's doing the right things. I've been adding a lot to casino stocks on their huge retreat. Check them out today. I believe in the casinos like this one. Sell-offs are a great buying opportunity but you need a 'strong stomach' to take the short term pain. Trust me, EVERYONE has trouble with 'pain' in the stock market. Investing is one of the hardest (if not the hardest) endeavor on which anyone can take. It's a true challenge.

  • edblue1003 edblue1003 Mar 19, 2015 12:08 PM Flag

    Earnings come about, I believe, on the 6th of April. I suspect there will be a rally prior to earnings announcement. Watch out for that. This will be a good sign as to whether earnings will be positive. If this is the case I suspect that there will be some selling for those capturing a quick gain. (There is so much manipulation within a stock for the pros to take advantage of naive 'investors'). If earnings is above 'analysts' (a term used very loosely here) expectations and once the quick selling subsides there is a very good chance that stock will proceed upward and it could be very pleasing for the longs. Good luck.

    How far AA can go down

    It's sure hard to understand. But no one understands the markets. Lot of emotion and misunderstanding.
    Helps to have an awareness what the company is doing; therefore, you can add shares or (at least) hold your existing ones. Lot of panic selling doing on now and the shorts and those getting margin calls exacerbates the
    situation. Good luck.
