Strong dollar makes US exports uncompetitive. US economy is 15% export driven. If US export segment rolls over, we have a recession. Its hard to compete when the rest of the world seems intent on debasing their currencies. (China, Japan and Europe all are in currency manipulation mode.)
Almost all of that debt is part of the financial services (GE Capital) unit. Its called leverage. When GE disposes of GE Capital, the debt goes with it.
Do you ever comment on anything without blaming Obama for it all ? You must have been a nasty little kid, blaming everyone else for your failings.
Because of the amount of Linn properties that have been either traded, bought or sold at the end of 2014, I don't think anyone really has an idea of what their 1st quarter is going to look like. Due to the strength of the hedge book and the size of their cap-ex/dividend cuts, I think Linn might surprise everyone to the up side when they announce their 1st quarter results. The threat of insolvency doesn't even enter into the equation until at least 2017 and oil prices should recover somewhat before then.
6% yield at current dividend. Its just a question of how long this trust has left to run. Do your due diligence and be careful.
The #$%$my, bottom feeding, lawyers are at it again. Every time a stock loses value, these #$%$ come out of the woodwork and file class action law suits. Have yet to see any of these lawsuits make money for anyone but the lawyer #$%$ that file the lawsuit.
"The Jewish people have an ancient culture founded on Liberty" . . . . . I think you need to go back to your history books on this one. Jewish people, back through antiquity, have a history of absolute rulers that conquered their neighbors to expand their territory. Lets not confuse the facts.
Aren't those terrorists the displaced Palestinians ? And do these Palestinians have anything in common with Iranians, other than religion ? And Iran shipping or not shipping oil will have zero impact on that situation ?
What you don't understand is the 1% isn't giving you anything. Its the price I pay to keep the masses quiet, otherwise they might wise up and overthrow the social order and I would lose my wealth. And we're not giving you one nickel more than necessary to keep you quiet. So just keep playing on your computer !
The 1% must love you. You've bought in "hook line and sinker" to their propaganda machine. They like to tell everyone that all the ills of the country are because of the "Progressive agenda" and if we could just turn the clock back 50 years everything would be OK. And just to answer your rant concerning the last 50 years, Republicans have been in the White House for 28 of those 50 years. And wealth concentration has never been higher in our nations history. The 1% keep getting richer, the middle class keeps getting poorer but your responses are consistently to continue this wealth transfer to the rich and "someday the wealth will trickle down", and you continue to make excuses for the failures of this process.
Does it occur to anybody that Iran has been selling their oil on the markets all along ? Because of the sanctions, Iran has had to discount their oil to sell it but they have been selling it. With this agreement, Iran no longer needs to discount their oil so there is a chance oil prices might actually firm up and there will be no additional supply on the market.
Marines, for over 200 years, swear allegiance to the Constitution, not an individual. To bring the Marines into your insane ravings is to do an injustice to the most honorable of our services.
The fact that Israel is not shy about exercising influence on Congress is not news. Our Congress has been bought and paid for by special interests for years now, decades even. Israel is just another special interest and they bought themselves some congressmen and Senators. The fact that you accuse Obama of every sin, since Adam and Eve is not news, its pathetic, but not news. The only new piece of information is that you seem to have learned to read Farsi as that's the only way you could be sure the press release in Farsi is different than the press release in English. Well done, Farsi is not an easy language to master.
Per CNN, on their website on Friday: "The world powers involved in the talks with Iran were the United States, Russia, China, France, the United Kingdom and Germany." Get your facts straight.
If you tell a story to someone and they repeat the story and so on for ten repetitions, at the end, the story is nowhere near accurate to what you originally said. Yet, it absolutely amazes me that you accept as fact fables and myths passed down by word of mouth for hundreds of years but deny scientific facts. What's the definition of insanity ?
