  • This was a $60 stock back in '07 with a dividend of $2.16 or 3.6%. Today this LOSER is 91% off its high and a 99.9% divi cut or .02% current payment and this LOSER gets a DOWNGRADE today. What a pathetic company and is CONFIRMED by Deutsche Bank. But don't worry, bag holders and future ones, there will be a plethora of 'analysts' and commentators HYPING this LOSER today and going forward. It's the way the game is played! And the 'pros' with make money at the expense of the bag holder.

    Sysco get a big NO

    This is GREAT news for the small vendors. I know Sysco would have owned the small restaurants.
    This was a horrible deal for the small 'mom and pops' out there dependent on competitive pricing of their
    orders. I'm so HAPPY this deal FAILED. It was a RIP-OFF for the small vendors (and even the large ones). U.S. Foodservice will still be a 'stand alone' distributor. Thank you!

    Another great UP volume day!

    And the trend continues. UP volume great and daily volume exceeding 30 day average by 14 or more %.
    The $53.72+ per share for 20 days looks more doable every day. With the share repurchase program reinitiated look for Buffett's mandatory conversion to common stock to take place soon (probably leading up to earnings and after) and it will be 'bye bye' to Warren's terrific yield on his preferred stock. Enjoy while it lasts which will end pretty soon, Warren.

    Just added more shares at $11.74. Aluminum prices up for past 2 days and stock is yet down again for the past 2 days setting new 15 month low at $11.73 bid. Risk/reward seems good here based on the close attention I give this stock on ALL news released. Volume low so far today based on 30 day average. There's just no interest in the stock on the buy side.
    This is buying opportunity. I will continue to add if it continues to slide 25 cents or more from my last purchase.

    Aluminum is trending UP for the past 2 days and the stock is going down for the past 2 days.
    Strange. Volume is way below normal ave. for this time of day. So what to do? I JUST ADDED MORE SHARES ON THIS CRAZINESS at $11.74. Looking out 2+ years and buy ONLY on cash account.
    I don't margin or play calls. Will get my 1+% divi while I wait. One just has to act on these price discounts.
    I keep very close to all news on stock and the risk/reward seems very good here. Bernard Baruch "Buy low and Sell high". New 15 month low at $ 11.73 bid.

    UNBELIEVABLE downgrade today!

    I understand prior to this 'downgrade' he had a price target of $20 per share. Sterne Agee's account customers have 'lost their rear end'. But the commissions have been paid so they could CARE LESS.

  • This guy's rating since 2013 is deplorable. For the past year alone all positions any customer opened following this LOSER'S advice is DOWN an average of 3.2%. DOWN! This LOSER is rated 2,940 out of 3,662 analysts (#6,435 out of 8,175). If you want to find anything positive about this LOSER, there are 1,740 WORSE than he is.or 21%. This illustrates just how bad analysts are in the arena of stock advice. And this LOSER probably makes a 'mint' evaluating stocks. No wonder PEOPLE are fed up with the markets and never touch it.
    It's a FIXED game! Only investors doing their own 'due diligence' have any chance of success. I'm holding my shares and continuing to buy on dips and expect to hold my position for a minimum of 2 years. Good luck.

    Who in the world would give this ZEALOT any credibility? Thank you for citing his name.
    If anyone out there has any info regarding his background it should be noted. These over-paid
    'analysts' need to be recognized for their HORRENDOUS calls. Sterne Agee, what do you think
    this does for your company to have an analyst like this working for you? I, for one, would NEVER
    do any business with you. Why should I? I wouldn't have any assets left! You would WIPE ME OUT!
    And I'm sure you have a plethora of customers who are wondering why he/she did business with you.

  • I often talk about just how WORTHLESS these analysts are and today just verifies my position.
    Today STERNE AGEE puts a $12 price target on the stock. Their target was $17 and the price today
    is $11.93 pre-market. Now think about this if you are one who can 'think'......You are a customer of Sterne Agee and your 'broker' tells you your stock has been downgraded by our 'genius' analyst(s). Say you bought the thing
    at $17 and so you are down nearly 30% (perhaps, in just a few months). And the analyst puts $12 target on it so if you 'hold' (which is this NUTS advice) you can make up a .58% of your 30% loss. CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS? And these NUTTY and WORTHLESS analysts make a fortune with these forecasts. Of course, the stock is UP 2 cents pre-market. If the stock is UP today what a SLAP IN THE FACE of this company.
    THIS IS PITIFUL, JUST PITIFUL. No wonder people AVOID investing in the stock market. NO WONDER!!!!

  • From Fox Busi to CNBC to busi periodicals all recommending this LOSER. It is still $5.65 or so per share which is 90+% from its high set back in '07 while its competitors are hitting on all cylinders to new ALL TIME HIGHS.
    Oh yeah, and don't let me forget that its dividend is a huge 1.2 cents vs. its once 54 cents back in '07 (qtr.)
    while its competitors are paying ALL TIME HIGH dividends. This LOSERS dividend has been CUT only 97.8%.
    But EVERYONE pushes this LOSER and I mean EVERYONE. It still goes nowhere!

    Everyone seems to want to complain about the price of the stock. Yes, it is disappointing it has gone down.
    I certainly didn't anticipate this. But consider this: If you wanted to buy something and suddenly it was discounted 20+% would that make you happy? This stock is being drastically DISCOUNTED and if you are a savvy investor (or trader) BUY the daggone thing. I have discussed this with more people and few seem to understand it. Personally, I initiated a position back in '09. It rose to 17+ on a couple of occasions. I bought many more shares when it fell drastically. (Yes, I could have sold at 17 but who knows where a stock is going to go - I CERTAINLY DON'T AND NO ONE ELSE DOES EITHER). I have been buying shares since the fall from 16 and will continue to do so if it falls further. I LOVE DISCOUNTED 'MERCHANDISE'. I understand this investment and am VERY positive it will rise again and much further than $17 per share. I will PATIENTLY wait and enjoy the dividend while I do so. By the way, I only BUY dividend paying stocks that are cheap relative to the market and its peers. Good luck.

    Volume EXCEEDED 55% over normal 30 day. Strong performance off ex-divi.

  • Volume today exceeded 66% over normal 30 day average. A lot of heavy buying applying UPSIDE pressure on stock. Closer & closer to new highs and EXTENDING previous close highs which is very positive.

    You're exactly correct, degree. The next 2 to 3 earnings reports will dictate where this stock is 7 months from now. Many are building positions on this 'sale'. Meanwhile, you earn a 1% divi while you wait. Every stock is a calculated risk but the 'risk/reward', in my humble opinion, is extremely good here.

    Hmmm, up volume greatly exceeding down volume!

    It's probably safe to 'assume' that I have been doing this MUCH longer than you, much longer. First, I've locked in a plethora of profits. I have lived off my investments for myriad years. Second, some stocks are worth holding just like I have done with this WINNER. You know that I made my initial investment at $ 6.09 per share back in February or so '09. I have captured great dividends. And I have
    added additional shares on the momentous ride upwards. Third, liberals (Democrats) and some RINO's have destroyed this once great country. Our unfunded liabilities are near $200 trillion thanks to the initiation of Lyndon B Johnson's GREAT SOCIETY. Johnson was a HUGE loser for everyone now living and beyond. OBAMA and other WACKO liberals have contributed greatly to this MORON'S feckless actions. You may be a LIBERAL for all I know. Finally, GREECE has been a LOSER country for 2,000 years. Who cares about Greece. I hope it fails and these LIBERAL citizens get what they deserve. Anyone who lives off the government
    deserves to 'die' with it. You should practice caution when you 'assume' someone's
    investing savy. You may just be up against something you can't handle. Oh, and check the volume on this great stock. Technically, it means something. And fundamentally, this stock is setting up for a great breakout. I will take my 'calculated' chances with it. Good luck.

    Exceeding up volume every day!

    edblue1003 edblue1003 Jun 17, 2015 4:12 PM Flag

    Correction. UP volume up 78%. "I'm so sorry."

  • Today's volume was up 62% vs. 30 day average. Up volume every day. Liveris probably opening
    up the 'bank' buying shares since Olin 'quiet period' is terminated. EXPECT more upside going forward.
    Much upside pressure now on stock and WILL present new yearly highs and ALL TIME HIGHS coming up.
    Gosh, it must be TORTURE to be on the sidelines or shorting watching money just 'flow through one's greedy fingers'. Must be agonizing......

    "You ALWAYS come out when Dow is up right before it falls then u get quiet". Hmmmmmmmm!
    I'm CERTAINLY not quiet today. Up nearly a buck causing you more pain. Hmmmmmmm!!!!!!!

  • Yeah, another good day for the LONGS and more PAIN for those 'zealots' not participating and those shorting. With the 'waiting period' expiring today EXPECT more of the same much to the chagrin of the
    complainers. And how about the UPGRADE from Deutsche Bank???? Sounds good to me!

    And that's just part of it. You can include housing construction; smart phones, hub caps for trucks and autos. With the acquisitions of RTI (titanium for plane engines & airframes), Firth Rixon (nickel &
    titanium for jet engine parts), and Tital (titanium & structural castings for aircraft engines and
    airframes) this 'should' add drastically for both top & bottom line. And their additional capacity in their new or expanded plants should create additional upside pressure to price of stock. I admit this sell-off has caught me by surprise but I just keep ADDING shares. Added more this morning on this little sell-off from close yesterday. Next earnings report which, I believe, is July 7th should present a much clearer picture to what is going on today. Klaus is very articulate and should add a lot of 'color'.
