    TD ameritrade : Acadia margin

    by tblant2000 6 hours ago
    funfundvierzig funfundvierzig 6 hours ago Flag

    That is odd because this morning we added to our position in ACAD in two margin TD Ameritrade accounts @ 32.29 and 32.31. The trajectory of this stock is upward, in our opinion, which should be validated tomorrow morning in active trading. As for as biotechs go, this one is golden with a verified wonder drug in hand, all set to go.

  • Has the 82- Year Ex-Über Boss of DuPont Been Asleep for Two Decades and Missed the Dramatic Decay?

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,

    Folks, we're still chuckling over the blather to the media from Edgar Woolard:

    "I didn't like the merger with Dow at all, " whines Woolard. "I think DuPont has always been a far superior company..." WHAT?? "Superior" to whom?

    Certainly not superior to Monsanto! Or to Syngenta. Nor to 3M Corp or to four times as large, BASF the largest chemicals and materials enterprise on the globe. And surely not superior to the far stronger, and much larger, better-run Dow Chemical.

    Why has the woolly Woolard seemingly missed the deterioration in the 21st century?

    * Senescence?

    * Isolation in the dwarf state of Delaware?

    * Brainwashed by the PR propaganda of DuPont's dissimulating Management and PR con artists?

    With hilarious irony, the Boss of BENLATE is frequently seen hanging his hat at the Center for Corporate Governance at the Univ. of Delaware, bankrolled by the DuPont Company.

    Finally business history will show it was Woolard who set the vectors for the downward trajectory and final disappearance of DuPont. Two of those egregious vectors were the bumbling Chad O. Holliday, Jr. and his pet pupil and protege, the stumbling Ellen J. Kullman.

  • Octogenarian Ex-Chief of DuPont, Ed Woolard On PR Damage Control Duty

    THE WEAK IN REVIEW

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,

    Readers, late last night we dialed into the internet version of the local NEWS JOURNAL, April 29, 2016, and gotta a big chuckle over Ed Woolard holding forth on the state of today's decayed DuPont.

    "I've been just stunned, shocked and overwhelmed by what is going on," blurts former DuPont CEO Edgar Woolard. "I still can't believe it."

    Why not? Actually Mr. Woolard commenced the downward trajectory of this once great Company, presiding over the colossal DuPont BENLATE scandal, for which he was sued along with DuPont by DD shareholders for fraud. The class action was settled for $77 million for shareholders, who ended up shelling out over $2 billion in costs for this harmful, plant-killing DuPont fungicide, BENLATE.

    "I didn't like the merger with Dow at all, " complains Woolard. "I think DuPont has always been a far superior company..." WHAT?? "Superior" to whom?

    Never mind it was Woolard who advanced the career of his bumbling successor, the lightly educated #$%$ from Nashville, Chad OMG Holliday, Jr, who in turn mentored the business-senseless, Diversity-choice, ex-Chieftess Elllen J. Kullman. DuPont has been in a irreversible death spiral ever since with the best and brightest talent fleeing.

    For the past two decades, the mismanaged and malmanaged DuPont has slumped into a pool of abject INFERIORITY. How can the beady-eyed Woolard be so totally blind in the isolation of the dwarf state of Delaware? Now DuPont is being constructively acquired by twice as large, far stronger Dow Chemical. Reality check.

    ad_amenn_mon,

    Concur that the superior tax people of twice as large, far stronger Dow along with superior Dow attorneys appear to be dominating the process. That said, we believe there is not an insignificant possibility this hastily slammed together super combo will fall apart, knocked down by Washington D. C.

    "Dow can only help DuPont."

    Again concur, because, net, Dow will upgrade the decayed and disarrayed DuPont, even at the cost of degradation of Dow Chemical from the dwarf state of Delaware.

  • And Big Risks are Knocking LOUDLY!

    THE SUNDAY SIZE-UP

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,

    For this gawky conglomeration, here are some looming risks as we see it:

    * Veto By Justice.

    Given the increasingly aggressive stance of the Obama Administration in the antitrust arena, e.g. the recent shoot-down of Halliburton-Baker Hughes, this combination of America's first and second largest chemicals and materials and seeds maker may not pass monopoly muster.

    * Veto By IRS

    This complex reorganisation, two going to one going to three, depends on a tax-free or tax-favoured green light under arcane reorganisation tax laws and regulations. A costly adverse ruling from the IRS may damage or even deal a death blow to the deal.

    * Clash of Corporate Cultures

    Abrasive differences in corporate cultures will sandbag transition and operation efficiency.

    * Turmoil and Tumult

    Dow executives and Managers will be fighting for primacy with DuPont executives and Managers. The internecine warfare over fiefdoms in the combined entity and later the three spin-offs will stultify progress and profitability.

    * DuPont Management's Appalling Experience in Spin-Offs

    Take a look at the last spin-off done by DuPont's bumbling bosses, only 10 months ago: The cash-stripped, debt-choked, Teflon Toxin Litigation-laden Shamours, virtually stillborn at inception. The shares quickly lost 85% of their value falling from 22.25 on June 19, 2015 to 3.06 on Jan. 27, 2016, before recovering to 9.12 on April 29, 2016.

    DuPont execs promised "a world-class, strong independent company" and a healthy dividend. Shamours is anything but!

    Wow, readers, you can readily see from the vicious personal attacks on investors on this board, the homophobic rubbish and sleaze, what sort of inferior, resentfully uneducated rabble infests the ranks of DuPont and Shamours! What are they frantic to hide?

    These ignorant woodchucks defending their beloved DuPont bosses could not write a single intelligent commentary if their miserable lower mental class lives depended upon it!

    What sick operations, indeed.

  • Three DuPont Stooges, Chief Breen, CFO Nicholas FeignandFakeUs, and Jimmie Crack Corn from AG Put On Lively Show of Slap-Dash Exaggeration

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag, Buenos Dias,

    Readers,

    The hyperbole and hype of DuPont's PR-dissimulating executives is off the charts.

    Take these examples:

    * "…[the super combo with Dow] will create a world-leading production Ag business"

    Even after the merger if does take place, DoDu, Inc will languish behind the global leader in seeds, Monsanto, and behind Syngenta and Bayer in ag chemicals/crop protection.

    * "About 50% of our line-up in North America is from genetics that we’ve put in the market in the last two years."

    Yes, but WHOSE "genetics" are they? Licensed from superior-managed Monsanto? Bayer? BASF? What is the proportion of "genetics" which were actually developed by DuPont researchers?

    * "Solid execution" "Strong execution" To what end? Shrinkage.

    Sales by dollar and volume were down significantly year over year. The sales in five of the six DuPont business segments were weak, down.

    And talk about shrinkage, the declared DuPont dividend payable in Q2 is $0.38. That's down substantially from the $0.47 paid last year, 2015 in Q2.

    Finally but for the artificial inflation of a gain of $369 million on the sale of DuPont Shenzhen Mtg Ltd reported vaguely and buried in a footnote, earnings would have been considerably softer in Q1 2016.

    Regular DuPonters and DD Shareholders may have had a sickly first quarter, but for DuPont Chief Breen it was a great quarter.

    For hastily slapping this clumsy conglomeration with Dow Chemical together back in mid-December 2016, Breen larded himself a colossal going-away gift of $28 million. His even greedier counterpart at Dow, Chief Andrew Liveris, out did Breen, larding himself with a massive $53 million going-away gift.

    What did shortchanged DD and DOW shareholders get?

  • Dumping Its Clean & Disinfect Business for $230 Million

    Good Evening, Bonsoir, Guten Abend,

    Readers and Investors, today, April 25, 2016, the increasing desperate Management of debt-choked Shamours announced they were ditching their Clean & Disinfect business, selling to Lanxess, a German Chemical Group. Sales price is 210 million euros, or $230 million.

    Trouble is $230 million won't go very far to cover the 3,535 tort lawsuits arising from the cancer-causing, insidiously toxic Teflon chemical C8 or PFOA. Ultimate tab could tower to $3 billion to $5 billion, in our opinion.

    Looks like Shamours disarrayed Management is raising cash to pay those bills coming due from thousands of DuPont Toxic Teflon Chemical lawsuits in federal court! Multi-$billion exposure from decades of secretly and knowingly poisoning drinking water supplies in West Virginia and Ohio for 100,000 unsuspecting women, men, and children.

    A mere $230 million won't Disinfect & Clean-up the massive potential legal bill for this massive Teflon Toxin litigation. And it will never disinfect the putrescent reputation of the depraved DuPont and its stillborn offspring, Shamours.

    In this unholy marriage with DuPont to be consummated later this year, Dow Chemical will get a wedding gift of $billions in DuPont Teflon Toxin Litigation.

    Folks, we're not affected by the laughter of the lower mental class shilling for Shamours Management whatsoever.

    Come to think of it, all those self-disclosed DuPont Teflon workers who harassed us and threatened us over the years at various internet news and investor sites will not be laughing if they or their friends or loved ones are diagnosed with a Toxic Teflon Chemical-caused cancer or disease. Hey, they believed every word their intractably dishonest DuPont bosses told them... C8 or PFOA is perfectly SAFE, "humanly harmless" and as innocent as Snow White!

    Who is laughing?

    Folks, we were more than mildly curious as to why Q1 earnings for DuPont were unsuspectingly released before midnight yesterday, Monday, April 25, 2016, when they had long been scheduled for announcement, 6:00 AM today, Tuesday, April 26, 2016.

    Turns out that bumbling DuPont executives and their equally bumbling PR drones "accidentally" released earnings to select reporters, Monday evening, necessitating a quick early release to all. Hardly builds confidence in DuPont Management.

    Investors, predictably and sleazily, one avowed DuPont employee planted on the net has instantly tried to divert your attention from the systemic weakness in DuPont by disparaging superior-managed Monsanto, the world's undisputed leader in the production and innovation of seeds.

    These dirty DuPont types never can operate on a level plain. You don't see Monsanto shills systematically attacking DuPont over the internet, do you?
