Made for a good buying opportunity in bank stocks. C up about 10% from 2 days ago. But now what? Especially for C with Friday data coming up. Take profit? Take risk?
The protesters in England are a bit too late. Sorry Govt. workers and unemployed people. You lost. And why do you really care anyway. No one else does anymore.
yes, they probably will continue to buy and destroy competition. That is their model. Seems to be working. Its one big cash flow machine. When debt and equity are cheap......buy, buy, borrow, and buy some more.
I like it. Thanks wildbeen and naglecolin. When anything positive comes out, and shorts start to cover, look out.......First out wins. Dog eat dog world. Then the phone will ring. And the other shorts will HAVE to cover (the phone call is from your broker telling you to put money in your account or buy back the shares you shorted). Scary stuff. Takes some big cajones to be shorting a volatile stock in a volatile market. Good luck to you beenyweeny.
Actually no, I have a team here with me on the couch. My wife and 3 cats. KC is the witty one who gives me these kind of comebacks. Thanks for asking. (KC stands for Kitty-Cat).
a better question would be why did the Dems not raise minimum wage, fix the VA, make college more affordable, get us completely out of the wars......when they had the chance? Remember 2008 - 2010? They had a Super-majority in house and Senate...and they had the White house. They could have passed anything. ?????????? did they change wall street, fix taxes? No...they gave the banks almost a trillion dollars. Yeah! Thanks Nancy Pelosi and the Dems. Job well done. And then there are the republicans. What a mess that was, and still is in Iraq. What a waste of money. And they also bailed out the banks...not as much as the Dems, but a lot. Nancy Pelosi is married to one of the biggest bankers in the country.
suffering? What is so funny about the whole stock market story...which is what this is all about so far...is those people who voted to leave have very little stock. Its the rich elite they were protesting against who own most of that wealth on paper. And the fact it dropped? All the better.
All those elite "haven't done an honest days work in their lives".
Approaching 4% after today. Orders out for decades. Profitable. I might just put my whole 401k rollover into Boeing and collect 4% in this environment. I hope management is smart enough to be buying back shares shortly.
not quite. Teachers do not get paid squat. However, the administrators of education....make up $6 out of $7 spent. That is on a state level for k-12. If you look at college....its about the same. Some Presidents make millions....per year. Thanks to govt. loans to kids who do not know any better. Trump can only win if all the rural folks get out to vote and city dwellers stay home. They have the numbers. In England, the workers out in the country still outnumbered the paper pushers in the city.
they don't have any dividends. Your OK on margin? Jesus. That's crazy. I am still on sidelines with my play 401k rollover money. Still not confident in these slimy creatures.
good point ggg.....was just asking...thinking out loud. And what kind of candy are we talking about? And for the record, I have been taking candy from strangers and giving it to strangers most of my life.......its called Halloween.
glad they did not pull the trigger like Microsoft did. Price has come way down since you posted this. No hurry now. Would be interesting buy. Plus Bezos would get that great Seattle property they just picked up on the water from Amgen for 656 million. What a friggin waste though of state of the art biotech lab facilities. Anyway, problem with a buyout would be insiders own 15% of the stock and have been doing pretty well cashing in through options......to the tune of $152 million just last year for the head honcho. Would you sell?
I might buy if she drops below $90.
because they bought linkin about a week too early. Could have gotten it cheaper today. Should they back out and pay deal breaking fee? Go ahead? Oops.
Just yesterday they published the stress test and Citi did best...at top of list. So....when to buy? With play money of course....would not put real wealth into this market.....benefiting the top 1% for the last half decade. Hey Bernie...you wanted to reduce the wealth gap between the haves and have-nots? You got it. None of this makes squat diff. to those who work for a living or run a small business, like a pub. But all those rich celebs and politicians and hedge funds and bankers.....well.....sorry folks. Just a bit fed up with all your BS. Revolution.
tempting eh? No risk no reward. Look at Citi bank....C. They did best in the govt. stress test, just published yesterday. Looks like a buy. I am not a fan of the banks, but the stock??? Any thoughts out there from other risk takers with some play money?
I am. Fischer-Tropsch has obviously been around since those two Germans invented it in the 1930s. Sasol, SSL has been using it for over 50 years down in South Africa where some of those same Germans migrated after the war. They are now building the biggest GTL plant ever in Louisiana, this time using cheap gas instead of cheap coal like in Africa. They are part of that huge GTL partnership over in Qatar. I think the synm value would be in production of renewable fuel and its higher RIN multiple...1.7. Hope to see some higher production number one day.
BTW, have you heard from wellptboy lately? I figure he would show up soon with all this negative in the market.
are you sure? A little something else for the news to talk about instead of Trump and Clinton. Thank god! Going to be lots of good buying opportunities......for those with cash.
Majority rules.....period. This may be a president to what is to happen in this country. Trump to win? We shall see. Going to be a long 4 months. Very long.
good point. I think I might just play the S&P mini futures. The S&P futures itself is $5,000 a point move. Need some big cajones for that. But in quick in morning.....get out by days end. Good luck.
