Moreover, he would not brag on this forum about cheating on his taxes. He had a little more class than that.
The value of current assets minus all liabilities is about 8.90 a share and that leaves nothing for fixed assets and any intangible value. I may have to buy this thing.
Your cost basis will be split between Ebay and Paypal with most of your basis going to PayPal. I don't think the percentages have been announced yet, but you won't be able to claim all your basis in original Ebay to a sale of Ebay.
" I know there's a bit in San Rafael. I heard some was hidden on a car in a small parking lot. What does that mean? I guess one never knows what one can learn on a chat board. Even like learning to leave people alone."
Alloneposter, am I bothering you? If so, how?
Charles, if you want to keep posting as my loofah, be my guest. However, your positioning makes you naught more than a passthrough entity for human waste and such. Is this all you aspire to?
"There are few better feelings than donating to a worthy cause."
Indeed. I do taxes for a living and you would be amazed how many capable people do nothing. And how many poorer ones help out.
Second place finisher has a choice. Maybe ofjames forgot about the contest. I thought it was a thriller and I am bummed I lost my lead in the last day. I will get over it.... with the right therapy.
Strange times. I am holding the Swiss franc and awaiting future developments. I believe in currency diversification but it kicked my #$%$ in 2014.
I would say he is a little obsessed with me too, wouldn't you?
That is too bad you are having trouble with Yahoo. My antivirus at work sometimes messes with it too so I know how inconsistent it can be. I think you are doing great with JCP. I just scored big today on FXF, the swiss currency ETF. I have quite a bit in there and it rose 17% today when the Swiss monetary authorities removed their tie to the euro. But 2014 was a miserable year for me. My mineral and currency holdings brought my performance to a rough standstill. Ick.
I haven't shorted anything all year and I haven't been following KLIC. From what little I have read it seems they are doing pretty well. I've owned BOBE since it was in the mid-30s in about 2011 so I have made a little and clipped a few coupons. But in the contest I speculate it is about to pop. Maybe not; I have never gotten higher than third in the contest. What do you like these days?
My stupid stock choice is a restaurant chain and hog farm operator called Bob Evans Farms or BOBE. They also make retail and wholesale food products. Since I have celiac disease and I am a Whole Foods-type, gluten-free snob I would probably never eat their hog slop and I don’t own it for the restaurant business which is a very tough one to operate in. But I like the real estate underneath their garbage. They own all of their sites and a large shareholder named Tom Sandell has been bugging them to make some reforms including a sale-leaseback of land and facilities. An increasingly independent board just forced out the CEO and some changes could be forthcoming rather quickly which is why I have selected this stupid stock of which I own plenty.
I doubt she felt ganged up on since just Charlie and Sully put her down. She had some heavy experiences and apparently lost interest in the board.
Oh, it is an options income issue. I have never done those, but I get how they work and know others who have used them. Good luck with it; hey, volatility is fine with me.
You are thinking of Lisa and she is alive and well and has the good sense to stay away from here. John is still here and Charlie will quite possibly wipe this post out before you can read it. (LOL)
I don't know about you, but I have been hosed on foreign bonds and foreign-denominated cash, so how has EXG held up under that? Do they hedge? OIA? Zzzzzz. 2014 has really sucked IMO and IMPortfolio. Small cap has stunk and my resources stocks have been obliterated.
Charles is keeping him alive so he can massacre his reputation. Charles (aka Nobody) finally wants to be somebody. Okay Charles, now post my name, address and phone number as if anyone cares. Then call me pretending to be some anonymous board reader and I will have you at last.
