    My friend Edblue was adding up to $240

    Good grief, the loser FKU-HOLLY strikes again. Let's explore his feckless investing.
    He's been a HUGE loser in HLF. Yeah, he's long this and in the $80 range; he's invested in LOSERS like CVEO and SSYS. Both have been clobbered and CVEOS' dividend has been eliminated. This NUT has lost a fortune and he blogs about me????? And, as usual, he doesn't even get his facts straight. It's really LAUGHABLE. This MORON is so easy it's must be embarrassing for him. I'm laughing so hard it hurts!

    Here is my 9-9-9 Plan for AA..

    Dumb is right. This is ludicrous. Klaus just needs to keep focused. He has easy comps going forward. If execution is there the pe will come down; cash flow will increase; and, with positive cash flow will be able to buy back shares and increase divi. This is what will propel stock to the $30+ range
    in a 2-3 years. Like Dow Chemical, Klaus has transformed the company away from its commodity
    business and into value added ones. Bottom tier will prevail over top tier.

    AA Dividend

    Like Pops said Klaus Kleinfeld is transforming the company. This company was strictly a commodity one back in 2008; Klaus (from Seimens) became CEO in 2008 and is making the company independent of commodities and making it a 'value' one. With easy 'comps' going forward the company should impress on both the bottom and top line. Write downs should be nonexistent (the company has exited some of the commodity side) and once strong cash flow is realized expect both share buyback and dividend raise program. Then one could see possibly see strong capital gains. This could easily be a $25+ dollar stock in a couple years (or less)....I first bought in 2009 and have been aggressively adding on all pullbacks. Good luck.

    AA Dividend

    Oh, and the last dividend paid prior to its 'cut' was $ .17 quarterly paid on 2/25/09 which
    represented a cut of 82% during the financial crisis. No reason why it can't get back there one day!

  • Cramer pushed this right at its high just to see the thing crash after hours today. Looks like about 20%
    down from its close today. Cramer strikes again! Fortunately, I wasn't 'snagged'....

    Yeah, 'threw in the towel' and still has a price target of $23. Anyone who listens to these zealots is a dumb as they are. This market is so manipulated only seasoned investors can survive it.

    Sorry to spoil your 'enthusiasm' but this is NOT the real test. It comes Wednesday, March 11th when the Feds decide what each bank can do when they (the banks) include dividends, share buybacks, etc. All the banks passed this preliminary test. It seems 'investors' have no idea about what these stress tests are. This is one of the reasons people lose money, particularly those who invest in this LOSER. Disc: No position in CitiHYPE!

    Klaus has now bought 3 companies in the last year or so, all nickel and titanium which are and will be in high demand. All will be accretive to earnings. Today hurt as they are buying with company stock and Wall Street hates dilution. This is a short term phenomenon and stock will recover. Long term (say2-3 years) this will be a $30 pps and beyond.

  • edblue1003 edblue1003 Mar 9, 2015 5:17 PM Flag

    I believe this is near or at the low. Today was another event which is positive long term. So many
    foolish statements which applies for today or the very short term. Selling just causes more selling and, many time, with no valid reasoning. I ADDED more shares this morning. I've been adding on any
    'selling' event. This is a LONG TERM investment (2-3 YEARS) not hours or days. Klaus is doing a fantastic job by lessening upstream business and accentuating mid and downstream ones.

    A lot of buying today which was accentuated starting at 3:23 edt. Up volume was about 4/1 vs. down.
    Selling was predominant in the morning hours starting the downtrend trend until pm. About 3x normal 30 day

    Yeah, the company will issue about 83 million shares and recouping about $350 million cash from the acquisition. You mention the word 'dilution' and the street goes bonkers. Great buying opportunity LONG TERM and added even more shares just before the close today. They are just so much more powerful in mid and downstream businesses.

    When a stock falls these NUTS seem omnipresent, ubiquitous.
    Always negative. Why? To divert their attention from their own failure as an 'investor' (a term used very loosely here). These zealots are LOSERS.
    I for one appreciate good input (negative or positive) as long as it has
    some credence and support of the statement. There are myriad fools out there; and their input is meaningless. I,too, have added shares down here. Wynn and Adelson are great CEO'S. My money is on them. I have learned to NEVER underestimate these kinds of leaders and ALWAYS bet with them, not against. One of my main criteria is the CEO before I decide even to commence a position. I want a proven and successful leader and we have it with Steve. Good luck to the longs. As for these negative imbeciles on this board 'may you find your gravesite soon, very soon'!

    Capitulation on both WYNN and LVS?

    by edblue1003 Dec 17, 2014 4:06 PM
    edblue1003 edblue1003 Mar 10, 2015 5:05 PM Flag

    Pretty accurate statement. Even an 'imbecile' like you can learn something orrrr 'maybe not'. Thanks for the reminder. For those looking at any investment ALWAYS play with cash (never margin) and have money you can either afford to lose OR can wait for a recovery assuming the investment is worth holding. Make sure the reasons you bought the stock are still valid. And don't be 'influenced' by imbeciles on the board UNLESS he/she offers solid reasoning which should be considered. Fools are fools and, ultimately, fail while the wise listen and benefit from logical input. Good luck.

    Hard to believe but stock exploded up today on tremendous volume (up a few pennies). Would you believe TOTAL buy activity was a whopping $ 10,481. Yeah, just under $11,000 TOTAL activity. Just think --- if pmdkia decides to sell his shares there is NO one to buy them. And according to him
    he has a plethora of shares. 5,750 TOTAL shares bought today. 5,750 shares!!!!!!!!!!
    What a pathetic company. No credibility and no one buying except those naive, uninformed 'investors' (a term used very loosely here) buying something with literally NO value thinking
    something is 'cheap' with explosive upside. This LOSER is cheap because it is worth nothing.

    (1) China government forcing 'high rollers' to go else where to gamble such as Korea. Gamblers will find a way around the system to get what THEY want. So, I guess the Chinese can put the 'high rollers' in prison to get what they want and put small casino there. Then they can really exhibit total control. The smoking ban is crazy. Why doesn't the Government do something about their overall air quality. It's horrible there. But these NUTTY government heads will concentrate on SMOKING????? In short, Macau losses and outside areas GAIN. Makes no sense. Some employes will be terminated and those in Korea will see employment increase. This is so DUMB! Second, company will go ex-dividend next week (Thursday). Third, I want to see what the earnings will be for the current quarter and what Adelson has to say. There has been SO MUCH negativity, particularly the past few days. Comments about dividends, etc.,made by zealot analysts. These guys are never right. I'm taking a small beating here but will STAND firm and see what happens in earnings period. A couple analysts have made positive comments but go unnoticed. Only the negative ones are highlighted. Typical manipulation! So, shorts, enjoy your time. It could really be short lived.

    Couple of points.......

    It seems that the rules are always changing. If Japan decides on gambling the operators must
    get a firm 'understanding' what is and what isn't allowed. And no changes going forward after the casinos are constructed. And they "aren't gambling like they were". If so, these stocks would not have plummeted. Even the 'honest' high roller is avoiding the area. What gambler wants the government breathing down their neck to see what he/she is doing. No ones invites hassling or intimidation. I'm just sick of government meddling into affairs. Have some controls but don't try to destroy a holiday destination (Macau) that is prevalent over all others in the free world or elsewhere. Macau is a wonderful area that is now being tainted by the hapless government officials. Must be getting advice from Obama.

    The operators have been extremely successful there. The rules have changed. So leave it to politicians to try to derail something that has been successful. Yeah, there is no logic. I would expect that there is a lot of 'dialogue' between casino operators and the government on what is taking place. It seems free choice really is nonexistence in these controlled government countries. They (Chinamen) want something different that only the free world can provide and then HAMMER the businesses offering these great amenities. After witnessing what China has done would prevent me from ever entertaining the idea of investing or building anything in this crazy country.
    And the argument about having more options vs. gaming is ridiculous. Steve Wynn has and always will build a leisure paradise full of all the amenities. He strives for the 'full' experience and not just gaming. He even discussed this during his last conference call. One could conclude that it is extremely risky to deal with these crazy countries, particularly communist ones. Just compare what
    Adelson and Wynn have done there compared to casinos already existent before their arrival.
    It's like comparing DAY VS. NIGHT. I think you live there. You know exactly what I mean.

  • edblue1003 edblue1003 Mar 11, 2015 5:39 PM Flag

    Both Adelson and Steve are very shareholder friendly and BOTH owns large chunks of company stock. I mean major percentage of share count. If dividends are cut by these guys then no divi is safe with any company. NONE!

    These 'baboons' as you so fecklessly described have made me rich. And who the heck are you to call these guys 'baboons' who have made BILLIONS $'s running these great companies which they put together themselves. If you want to see a BABOON look in the mirror, you NUT! You MUST be an OBAMANITE! All of you are WORTHLESS!
