Not sure - probably profit taking after earnings announcement, But I like BB&T at these prices. Investors are buliish on long term financial buys - interest rates will rise and banks will benefit.
You buy on dips, BBT will do great in long run - time to load up at this drop. I am a buyer today.
Pay no attention to Norm, Romney will win - Obama's life is NOTHING BUT A LIE.
They tried to sell more stock a while back - no go, what bank would even be interested in buying Tidelands. Hope they can work out of this.
Looks like it is time to cut the pay of these overpaid and underperforming executuves at Dimon. GET REAL - you do not need that kind of income in Danville, VA.
When your company is losing money this fast - time to look at other options like getting someone to BUY YOU !
Capital One is laying off Americans and sending jobs to India. What a shamefull American Company.
Show them what you think of this by cutting up your Captial One Card and cancel your accounts with them.
Or you can keep it if you like having your private information open to all in India.
It is your choice - Choose America !
Oh Great so you would like to live under Sadam's rule - just get on a plane ASAP and go to IRAQ.
If you cannot see the writing on the wall that he wants to use this stuff then you are an empty head.
Thank God Clinton is out and Gore lost.
Firing missles at our planes is an ACT OF WAR and we should be going after them now and waiting for the Ted Kennedy's of the Senate to go on with their giberish.
First David G. run Getronics into the ground and now he is doing the same at EMC. This guy knows nothing about Marketing and Sales - he is a number cruncher and the only way he knows to get a profit is by cutting cost - BOY is He a BIG JOKE.
I Hope they get rid of HIM SOON !!!!!
You must kidding to value this stock this high. It deserves to be less than a dollar.
All these IT staffing companies are now hurting because of the ancient management, poor economy, poor attitudes of consultants who think they are worth 3X what they are, and finally the foreign invasion from India, etc.
Not a climate in which to buy any of these stocks.
Glad I am out of this sector !
If you go back thru History IBM has always been a good buy under $80.
Yes I understand that today is different - but I believe that with a P/E of 18.75 you need to have this in your long term portfolio.
Just look at how much better they could do if they merged with 1-2 other large companies in this space. The G&A and Corporate overhead in some of these companies is way too high, and this makes them prime for plucking.
Lets hope someone with $ see this and buys.
Thanks for your discertation on Ciber and tech
This industry group suffers from a reactive
versus proactive management philosphy, in short they
would not know an opportunity if it was running over
them in a bulldozer.
Like you I got out of Ciber
but at a loss to offset soem gains elsewhere.
wish I could forecast some goodness for this sector
but maybe 2001 numbers will look OK when compared to
I have no advice to offer however my dollars in the
bond market that everyone was laughing at in March
look pretty good now.
I still say the only hope
here in M&A.
