Only way Cuba can pay for anything is with sugar, alcohol and tobacco. U.S. already has plenty of each! Want to give them trade credits? Ask the Russians how that worked out!
When I was a kid there were TV commercials where a guy dressed up like a medical doctor would recommend which brand of cigarette consumers should smoke.
Even a newbie can take a look at the one year chart and see where this is heading. We've seen nothing but lower highs and lower lows since the peak. Once this breaks below $60 the new support level will be $50.
Most REITs won't bother without a dollar-for-dollar tax credit. Don't forget that in most cases the renter pays the heat bill.
Immediate import ban on all wood and wood fiber construction materials manufactured in China. Cancel all open orders and ship back if possible. What goes around comes around.
The super bowl originated in wide-screen format yet my cable provider passed it through as the old 3x4 narrow picture. My cable provider? Comcast of course.
Point taken. At least they are out there trying to make an honest buck under their own steam. It's a shame they are working for a company that is spinning its wheels.
What a dog this turned out to be! What good is 4% when it goes down 1% each month? The last of my "Cramer" holdings. Never again. Too bad is already x-div.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Swiss end link to the Euro. Is this the "Black Swan Event" everyone has been waiting for? Bundesbanke can't be happy about this. Good time to take profits if you've got them, stand clear till next week.
Every company has it's own "cost of production". The company with the highest cost of production is the one to get hurt first when prices go down. Alcoa is a textbook example, they are the first get clobbered when aluminum prices slip.
Risk is deferred by contract purchasing but the contracts expire and rising or falling prices will work their way through the system at some point. Hope this helps
Because it's eighteen days later and HCP just lowered guidance by $1 per share. The divvy just ain't worth it and I think I'm gonna bail. I've lost enough here. I don't know why I ever trusted a bunch of real estate bozos in the first place and it will be a long time before I ever look at another REIT. 4.5% is a laugh compared to LOSING 20% over fifteen months.
I see Cramer saying "paid to wait" as well. Also had this dog back in the 90's in a DRIP. I finally gave up and yes like you my only gain was in dividends. 3.5% can be had in much better stocks than this.
(Cramer's also humping PAYX again - had that POS in a DRIP too and should have bailed much sooner.)
Last couple of days the Wall $treet Journal had an article about franchise restaurants in China. Now that the Chinese have had a good look at fast food franchises and how they are run they are starting their own restaurant chains. And you guessed it the Chinese have a much better idea of what folks want and how to market it to them. So much for the China play.
