For me, that happened in May. Fortunately, the beast didn't run in front of my car. It crashed into the right front fender and right side of the car. It was weird to hear and feel a crash and not see an object in front of me. By the time I glanced to the right, the buck was gone. I didn't see it, but the police officer who stopped when I was trying to regain my composure after pulling over to the side of the road called it a buck and a buck had made it to the other side of the road before the other buck crashed into my vehicle.
BTW, insurance, at least USAA, considers such a crash not chargeable. I guess it's because there can't be a "he said, she said" situation. I didn't have to pay the deductible either. I was lucky because people have been severely injured or even killed in such accidents. Now, I go slowly through certain areas and with anything less than perfect light, put my high beams/brights on (and off only when approaching an oncoming vehicle.
I agree that eggs from local (in some cases just within the state) chickens that are allowed to graze with room to move, etc. taste better. Also, we care about animals and don't want to contribute to any suffering or confinement.
Though I closed out my October MON puts around 9:45 (EDT) this morning, I think there could be bumps that hurt MON. How much they sell throughout the world next year or in future years is something I can't answer. However, lurking lawsuits could hurt MON during the remainder of 2013 and into 2014. MON may be seen as something of a bully. I
As a former insurance agent and as the spouse of a physician I find your comment offensive. It's also inaccurate about when people with pre-existing conditions will have access to insurance. That's January 1. Since I have excellent health insurance I'm noIt shopping for health insurance and didn't access exchanges, but I know that conditions as common as Cesarean section deliveries can make a person ineligible for health insurance. I also know that I couldn't sell health insurance to some clients (willing and able to pay for it) such as a cancer survivor who had been symptom free for 5 years. I haven't been correct on recent twists and turns of CRM, but I have the quality of compassion.
So what? Many people who thought that partially hydrogenated margin have now switched to olive oil, grapeseed oil, and butter. Even the cardiologists who used to say to limit eggs to 3 or so a week or eat egg whites only are now acknowledging the health aspects of egg yolks (preferably free range).
Tahoe_kj, it may have been because today was the first day of the month/quarter. That means 401(k) money going into funds that price at 4 p.m. were putting 401 (k) money it at high prices. After the close, futures were up a lot more than now. A few minutes ago Bloomberg showed DJIA futures up 4 points and S & P futures up less than a point (.4 I think).
BTW, a little while ago I saw Rep. Peter King on t.v. and very upset with the Tea Party. I wonder how Peter King would have acted as Speaker.
The first time I bought CELG was 2009 when the stock was under 50. I'm no longer long the stock and have been in and out of CELG options during the past couple of months, instead of staying long.
The numbers above were the numbers from GILD, not CELG. I sold my GILD shares at the end of last week. IMHO, CELG is also at the top of a range, IMHO.
I was long CELG for the big move up months and years ago. I sold around 58 and bought on the dip under 50. I exited that long last week. Perhaps it was a day or so early, but after today's end to window dressing and the late endorsement by IBM, IMHO CELG won't stay up here.
I won't post here again today, but my CELG put from Friday is my only option that didn't work this morning. Disclosure, I closed out that put at the open, which was nothing compared to puts I closed out that had worked.
I like to remain polite and offer my opinion. Beware pumpers who post adamant statements and slink away when they are wrong. Beware posters who attack and bully instead of politely sharing opinions and technical information.
The last major dip was to just under 49. Anything under 50 has been an excellent buy point in the past. In the 62-64 area I have traded puts a couple of times. Instead of holding and hedging now at the end of the quarter and with uncertainty ahead, I'm not holding the stock long. I could be sorry at the beginning of next week, but I just didn't want to be long over the weekend.
Might consumers want to avoid GMO's based on the possibility of harm even before there are lawsuits and accusations in the media? More people are buying local or regional eggs and organic milk without antibiotics. It seems that the same people plus those who aren't concerned about antibiotics in chicken feed won't risk the health of themselves and their families. As I write this, I just ate some non-GMO corn chips.
Thanks for the "heads up" and the summary. I'll try to access the article at a medical library. A regional grocery chain now has shelf tags indicating non-GMO products. Of course, Whole Foods and Trader Joes are also good places to avoid GMO's.
CELG's move up from around 46 was based on product development, pipeline, expectation there would be more patients using CELG's products, etc. hasn't figured in the price pressures from hematologists, insurance companies, etc.. Some patients complain about massive co-pays and insurance companies now hold back on premium increases. At some point the stock price gets beyond future earnings and even lifesaving products are more than priced in. When fewer patients can afford products and the company needs to sell its products, price increases and even current prices that are already in the stock price will CELG have fewer customers or lower the expected prices of products in development and products on the market?
Today's price action appears to be window dressing to me. Yesterday there was massive window dressing. Today, window dressing continued on CELG especially after a Cramer post praising many overbought stocks. Even he has said that window dressing on the last day of the quarter isn't transparent enough for institutional holders to continue window dressing. The question is whether he's wrong about that and there is more window dressing on Monday or whether window dressing is over.
It could be up so much so far today because about an hour ago there was another piece posted from Cramer. At that time I closed out one of my 2 measly puts. The little risk I'm holding now is nothing compared to the gain I've missed on my longs, but sometimes it's better to be a little early than a little late. It could be that the time to add to measly put is Tuesday of next week.
Earnings will be a week after the debt ceiling deadline. A lot can happen before they report earnings. The move up today is likely because of end of quarter window dressing and an extra pump from Cramer. This is wonderful exit territory, not hold and hope territory, IMHO. I've exited and now just bought 2 puts. If I lose, the loss is limited. It's too risky to remain long here, IMHO.
You don't care why? Did you buy AAPL at 700 just because it was AAPL?
I made money today, though not on CRM shares. Besides on other stocks, I made some money when I was in and out on a small day trade option play on CRM. But what I did or you did today ignores the bigger picture.
Did it "explode" to a price below the high of the day? Besides, are you referring to the bid and ask spread?
The bid and ask are up after hours. CRM may have held up this afternoon because the RHT CEO was to be on Cramer's show and some may have thought Cramer would favor CRM over RHT. I caught that piece of Cramer's show and there was no boost to CRM. In fact the ask came down from a loftier place.
