I saw a headline that someone successfully signed up their dog to the ACA.
Ha Ha, very funny.
If it had been my child, they would have been punished by me somehow,
as should any persons attempting to create an official false document should be..
Instead, it makes headlines.
I guess the President needs to apologize yet again?
Instead fine the SOB, with possible jail time.
It won't be so funny then, would it? :)
My real guess is that there are even more nefarious entities with their hand in an ongoing plot to do whatever they feel is necessary to foil any chance of Obamacare's success.
In that case, the threat of real jail time would absolutely thwart the efforts of those who's efforts are positively an obstruction of justice.
Being a Yahoo MB user for sometime now,
I see the countless trolls that are out there with nothing better to do but to "disrupt things"
EVERY moment of EVERY day on EVERY board.
Are there really that many trolls with nothing better to do?
If every Yahoo MB littered with such cretins,
how hard is it to imagine that the same thing is going on at the ACA sign-up site as well.
Bots, signing in en masse, partially completing the form, then exiting,
OVER and OVER and OVER again.
It's definitely not because the website cannot handle legitimate sign-ups.
It's not very hard to figure out that one.
I just hope that the truth will soon come to light and those responsible are brought to justice.
Evidently the market thinks that the French/English translation of "Jacques Perron" is "Todd Hoffmann".
The board must have been more than a tad displeased with Kevin's performance regarding MM specifically
and the operations of TC as a whole to replace him at that juncture.
It also seems as though Mr. Hyphen, with his little informed SA post has done great damage to TC's share price.
What exactly are his credentials, to have enough weight to sway a stock price with a silly and damningly misleading article.
Hey Ultra, have you ever tried to submit an article in SA?
With your grasp on all things TC,
it might very well be published thereby doing us all, including yourself, a great service.
If some uninformed snot-nose can blog about what he "thinks" about TC,
an article from someone a little closer to the field about what he knows would surely be helpful.
Until the scales are re-balanced with a positive view, unfortunately all that is out there to view is Mr. Hyphen and the likes of him.
Even the PR of TC's first MM shipment has not turned the tide thus far.
Tomorrow's another day.
Buying opportunity you say?
I'd have to agree,
but exactly what shareholder is enjoying seeing this most recent price movement.
Good luck, go TC,
SCCO reports on the 28th of Oct.
FCX's good report might be a good omen for them as well.
I have a few divs. being paid this week to my ira acct.,
I think I'm going to get more SCCO with those funds,
enough to increase my SCCO holdings a little over 10%.
I'm standing pat with TC until another 3mths,
until the next round of divvys.
If I have to pay a little more, than so be it.
Imo, SCCO is as relatively low as TC,
but I think will rise more quickly into the spring,
making waiting to buy TC until then a more viable option(for me).
Ideally, I'd like to lighten up on SCCO around 40 in the spring.
If you check their charts you will find SCCO tend to rise now(in the fall),
and drop again towards the end of the Southern Hemisphere's summer(around Mar.).
Also,SCCO paid a special div. at the end of 2012,
but has lowered its dividend recently by around 2/3 to 3/4.
I anticipate a higher dividend this quarter to be announced by their management NEXT quarter.
They go ex on the shortly, 11/05/13, for .12ps.
I "DRIP" SCCO dividends.
Good luck, Go TC,
"It did" is an observation.
It seems as though you did not include an opinion.
Still, it is nice to get a response on this MB without any veiled (or not) political jabs from one side or the other.
I'm looking forward to continual discussion with you and other GE minded MBers on how far GE's pps rises.
I maintain that GE may very well see 30 by year's end,
especially if/when the seemingly now yearly dividend increase is announced,
sometime around the 2nd wk. of Dec.
Imo, anything greater than a .02 increase could really add fuel to an already stoked fire,
propelling GE to heights not seen since its fall from investor grace during the latter half of 2008.
The last day GE closed above 27,
it also closed above 28, 09/11/08(@28.15pps).
It was one week to the day of its ex-date that quarter.
There were two more dividends after that until GE slashed their divvy to .10.
Hopefully we are witnessing a retracement to those prices/dividends.
There's definitely a demand for shares.
It's broken the 52wk a few times since last week,
here's to a few more this week.
Do you think GE continues this torrid pace or are we looking at a pullback, near-term?
Since 09/03 GE has risen 13.79% AND has paid a .19 dividend,
totaling 14.16% in gains to GE shareholders' accounts during that time.
The recent drop has been quite disappointing.
I thought TC would have flown past 4 and be nearer to 5 than to 3 by now.
I'm starting to lose my confidence in my TC holding. :(
I'll bet that the big boys know that many who've thought the same as me are in the margin with TC and they are doing their best to make a money grab from those unfortunate souls.
Imo, the closer we get to year's end without a rise in pps,
the better the chance we'll see some tax-loss selling,
further hindering TC's pps recovery,
and delaying that recovery at least into the start of the upcoming year.
Today GE should close above 26.
Two milestones in 2wks is very nice.
Does anyone see 27 this week or next?
The big run-up in such a short time has got me a little squirrelly.
GE is not due to announce its next dividend until the 2nd wk. of Dec.,
so imo, its a little early for the run-up to be caused by a perceived dividend raise.
GE has broken through every indicator that I see;
50Day, 120Day, 200Day, and is way above the Bollinger Bands.
I'm more of an investor than a trader,
but I've held GE through a few climbs and falls in the past 5yrs,
and I'd sure hate to be holding it all if GE fell below 20.
What're you guys thinking?
Thanks for any input!
Good luck fellow GE stockholders,
That's a tough one.
GE is up around a buck since your Thurs. morn post.
Maybe GE drops back down,
but if the dividend is increased,
Yeah, I first bought a dropping GE when they were paying .31 per.
It decreased to .10 the very next quarter.
GE has increased their dividend at least once a year since,
the last few in increments of .02.
The yield is no longer keeping up with the rising pps,
imo .02 no longer says much(my .02!)
While I also think there will be a div. of .21 next quarter,
I too would accept .25ps into my account.
Too play it safely, management may raise .02 twice this coming year instead of a .04 increase in one quarter.
I think .02 would be right as well.
Although 2yrs. or so ago, GE increased from .14 to .15 and on to .17,
2 dividend increases totaling .03 raises in 2Qtrs.
Geez, how about an even .04 increase,
bringing GE to a more respectable .25 per quarter dividend payment.
At 30ps GE would be yielding 3.33%.
I hope we all think GE gets above that by next year at this time,
and 3.33% ain't all that great.
Incentive to buy more shares via a decent yield brings in the small and medium sized investors who hold long time.
So, imo, if management wants the pps of GE to break 30ps in the next year,
a mere .02 raise might stagnate the share price somewhat,
but hopefully not.
