Billion, "There is a difference." Could be. I'll accept your statement. Having said that I have to conclude your discipline is a 100% failure.
Just checked in and took a look at the forum. The only post I see since I posted this 2 days ago are feuding post between the two. Maybe a truce and a few days off would be good.
Another great cut and paste. The article I read did not say state-run run.
"because overnight state-run OAO Rosneft announced"
Just for the record.
Mung, I enjoy ready your post. You are on top of your analysis. I just enjoyed and had a good laugh from the one you posted a few minutes ago on the other board.
Keep up the good work.
Billion, what I have seen over the years is an ongoing feud between you two that both seem enjoy and look forward to on a daily basis. It seems to make the day for both of you. FWIW
inaz, based on what I have seen over the years stock buybacks usually affect the share price depending on what is going on in the market at the time of the buyback. For example,if the companies revenue is falling the EPS may not increase even if the number of shares outstanding decrease. There are numerous factors that come into play at the time of the buyback.
He is busy working the downers. My post is up to 33 and the last 3 post are at 11,10,and 11 as I type. That is 38 in 21 minutes.
LBNLOTW, good post, you are quick with your thinking, thanks for the laugh. Looks like my post will keep the fantasy man Gus busy for awhile, 27 downers in 2 hours. What a hoot.
inaz, I don't have all the facts on WB and share buybacks but I think he has been consistent is saying that it was good if they were purchased at less than fair value.
Here is a quote: "In his 1984 letter to shareholders, he wrote that "when companies purchase their own stock [at a discount to fair value], they often find it easy to get $2 of present value for $1"—something he said was rarely accomplished by corporate acquisition sprees."
Mr. Schnider, " I have chosen to not stay up on all the news in Iraq throughout the past few years" I have as well and most of the other region there. You post is one that I can agree with completely. Thanks for the comments.
The message "WFC told 4 tellers to wear SEXUALLY PROVOCATIVE clothing" has been on the board every day for awhile and Gus is working around the clock to rate it and other post with a lot of thumbs up.
Would the originator or Gus or whoever post the percent 4 is of all the WFC tellers. I would bet that there is a higher percentage of females in every office for any company or business doing that on a regular basis trying to advance in their job.
Gator, I read the story. You forgot to cut and paste all the data. Here is another tidbit.
What's going on? The Census report offers a clue. The median earnings for Americans working full-time year round haven't changed much since 2007. But more than five years into the recovery, there are fewer such workers than before the recession. In 2007, 108.6 million Americans were working full time, year-round; in 2013 only 105.9 million were doing so.
You can't just cut and paste what fits your agenda Gus Jr.
