  • On Reuters wire.

  • Can't post the Reuters article, but you can find it easy enough.

  • After hitting $38.84 first day of trading Volozh was quoted: “We still have huge room to grow,” Volozh said in an interview with Bloomberg’s “In Business with Margaret Brennan.” “The Russian advertising market is projected to triple in the next several years, and we also have nearby markets.”

    If earning meet expectations you can bank on the stock price circling in on $38. Sound optomistic? Russia's online shopping is about to explode and Yandex has Russia locked up. JM2C

    It will be back over 30 today or tomorrow. If not, the offering price is too high???

  • Canada has begun phasing-out its penny, whose production costs have come to exceed its monetary value. The Royal Canadian Mint on Monday officially ended its distribution of one-cent coins to financial institutions. While people may still use pennies, the government has issued guidelines urging store owners to start rounding prices to the nearest nickel for cash transactions.

    Times are a changing.

    I thought PPLT had planned sales. I didn't expect a secondary. Still a strong buy, but now longer term imo.

    The price of Coffee is half the price it was last year. I know SBUX buys Coffee futures, but did they hedge through 2014? I would hope so. Can anyone point to long dated Coffee futures purchased by SBUX?

    Sentiment: Hold

    Check your prices again for Feb 2008, 5 years ago Coffee price was higher than today. More importantly, the price was halved year over year.

  • From Harvey Organ’s COMEX update:
    Today we had first day notice and what a surprise. We had a massive 1,391,000 million oz of gold stand or 43.26 tonnes of gold. I have been following the gold and silver comex data from the mid 1970′s and I have never seen anything like this before. You will recall that this past December we had only 10 tonnes of gold delivered upon. Generally December is the biggest delivery month of the year. The comex is not a physical market. If one needs physical they generally head over to London at the LBMA and purchase the metal over there. The high amounts standing may mean that our gentlemen from Eastern persuasion are having difficulty finding metal and thus they are heading over to our neck of the woods to obtain this very valuable commodity.

    EDS and VE have resolved their dispute on Dalkia. That's a positive.

    Should have taken off by now. What are the funds waiting for? The PEG is probably under 41 by now and earnings and guidance beat. We all know performance is will continue to exceed expectations.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • People know oil is high but they have no idea how low coffee is. Coffee is one of the highest traded commodities, yet the price per pound is hardly noticed. Imagine if the price of oil dropped 50%. It would be all over the news and people would react. Yet coffee drops to lows not seen for many years and nothing is said. If you go to starbuck or dunkin donuts you wouldn't know. You'd know if you went to Mobil. I don't think investors even heard of JO. I think when prices start to rise, and they will, people will invest in the most efficient stock or etf and that would be JO. JO tracks ICE Coffee, no post can influence the price of JO. That being said, I post here for entertainment as I am retired and have nothing better to do but review investments and read and post on them. GLTA

    I can't imagine the stock price not going up from here. I think 30 is our new base to built on.

    I guess its too early for sites to revise their numbers. Trying to find a site that updated the peg. Yahoo and others have it at 0.41. Is that correct? While searching I came upon STRH recent action. They maintained NXP as their best pick, and increased price from 33 to 35. I think when they say best pick, they mean in the semi industry.

    From the earnings call Q&A

    by i.alaric Jan 31, 2013 4:12 PM
    greenisout greenisout Jan 31, 2013 4:40 PM Flag

    ialaric is correct, Baa3 is Moody's Investment Grade
    Baa3, Ba1, Ba2, Ba3 then B1, which is NXP's current rating.

  • Upgrades: Issuer: NXP B.V.
    Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, Upgraded to B1 from B2
    Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, Upgraded
    Senior Secured Regular Bond/Debenture, Upgraded to B1 from B2
    Senior Secured Regular Bond/Debenture, Upgraded

    The B1 CFR also factors in NXP's progress in generating material amounts of positive free cash flow and in sustaining solid levels of operating performance over recent quarters. NXP has some cushion in the B1 rating category to withstand a degree of earnings volatility stemming from continued weakness in the semiconductor markets and macroeconomic uncertainty. In addition, the B1 rating positively reflects NXP's solid short-term liquidity profile. The rating assumes that management remains committed to further reduce the company's high gross debt burden of around $4.1 billion as adjusted by Moody's at 30 September 2012.

    Moreover, the B1 ratings also positively reflect (1) NXP's established leadership positions in different markets with different underlying growth drivers, supported by recent design wins and broadening range of innovative products; and (2) the company's improved operating flexibility and the $928 million in cost reductions achieved through its Redesign Restructuring programme, completed in 2011.

    The stable outlook on the ratings continues to reflect Moody's expectation that despite the more challenging market conditions and macroeconomic weakness in Europe, NXP will maintain a healthy liquidity profile and generate positive free cash flow through the cycle, which the company will apply to debt reduction. This should enable the company to maintain debt/EBITDA around 3.5x and EBIT/interest expense above 2.0x through the cycle.
