Can't wait to see the investments BX makes in the oil patch. I will guess that we will have to wait a few years before BX can cash out, but the strategy is sound and I can be patient.
Has anyone heard of any potential targets?
In other words, you are incapable of rational discussion about this (or any other) stock and, having nothing better to do with your time, you troll internet message boards with rude messages hoping to get the attention your father wouldn't give you.
That being the case, I'll put you (and your other aliases) on ignore, just as your father did.
Notice #1 to msong753 (aka liuj89) - there's a new invention; it's called a "paragraph". Try using them sometime.
#2 - it's "predict", not "predicate".
#3 - it's "others", not "other".
#4 - "sediment" is what's on the bottom of a body of water. You mean "sentiment".
Was/is the garbage picker your supervisor? Your thoughts are so very feeble, and command of the language so poor, that I can't imagine you doing anything more mentally challenging.
If the sentiment(!) on this board bothers you, then I suggest that you simply don't read it.
If you have something interesting/valuable to say about this company, like about the business model, or how it should be priced, then do share it. Just saying "be careful" has no interest/value to anyone here.
In fairness to the Fed, Sandy, their every word is parsed and analysed so closely that they can't be blamed for leaving themselves ample wiggle room.
Sure you shorted in 2007, sonny; everybody did. Heck, I shorted a million shares at the close last night (after being long a million shares until lunch time yesterday) and covered at lunch time today.
Everybody on yahoo always made great trades in the past. It's the unusual soul who tells us IN REAL TIME when they go short so we can see how they do without the rose colored glasses.
When you are ready to say you are going short, then your post will be interesting. Until then, you're just another pube sitting in his mom's basement.
He obviously also didn't notice the rest of the market crashing at the same time.
His inability to put facts into context amply demonstrate why his opinions should be ignored.
In case you haven't noticed, Cramer isn't very reliable. A while back a newspaper dubbed him "The 47% kid" because that's how often he was right.
A double could take some time, but the point of this thread is that the ETFC loan portfolio used to be a negative, and it could now become a positive. That would increase earnings in the long run. In the short run the P/E ratio will increase in anticipation.
I think the best thing ETRM can do is to get an (obese) celebrity spokesperson to use the product and then #$%$ the talk show circuit showing how s/he has lost weight. (Assuming the celebrity is likable) the medical clinics will be besieged by people asking for it.
Rivals fear edge for Blackstone via analytics firm investment
Blackstone’s investment in real-estate analytics firm VTS isn’t going down well with some in the business.
VTS, formerly View The Space, is a platform for providing commercial office owners and their brokers with real-time access to the latest offers on available space.
Earlier this month, Blackstone spent $3.3 million to buy a stake in the 3-year-old company, which is on track to hold data on some 2 billion square feet by year’s end.
Blackstone is the world’s biggest real-estate investor, and some fear the company’s involvement in the fast-growth data-tracking business will mean such services will become tailored to its specific interests rather than the industry’s.
VTS rivals include Hightower and CoStar, both also in the business of cloud-based deal flow.
“I would be nervous about Blackstone seeing my information, and also steering VTS towards their own needs as it develops,” one person in the business with experience using these platforms told The Post.
The rest of the story is in the NY Post (not always the most reliable source for hard news, but an interesting story nonetheless.)
You said "watch and learn" - we watched and learned that you have no idea what you are talking about, and that you are a little twerp coward who can't admit it.
Stick to cleaning toilets, sonny. And say hi to your mom for us Seattle Seahawks when she brings the hot chocolate to your room in the basement.
Hey stuporventure, what happened to your idiotic prediction that ETFC would go down on Friday after their earnings report?
You're right about the a special dividend; I don't see any reason to expect a special dividend. BX may pay a year end dividend that larger than the quarterly dividends, but I wouldn't call that a "special" dividend. In particular, although the stock price would undoubtedly adjust to some extent after on the ex date, I very strongly doubt the option strikes would be adjusted.
Well, did ya short it? Answer: (everybody knows the answer to this one): NO
