To paraphrase Warren Buffett "there are a lot of banks but relatively few bankers". I hope Koelomel does better in the sports field than banking. He and his ego and ambition ruined this company. Maybe it's a buy now if you have the patients to wait 5 years.
I am concerned about AGNC. Recently analyst opinions indicate a drop in NAV. As ex-dividend approaches, I would expect more price appreciation as we will see a drop of over 0.50 due to dividend. I decided to hold for the dividend but I question the longish term viability of this as a profita ble investment. Meanwhile, I am up over 10% with PLOW in less than 1 year.
If you own it, it is a great stock to sell 40'sl covered calls. I thought for
sure I would lose it this past Friday.
Yeah stock trader. You may have noticed these no profit biotechs really follow the market. Why don't you do some charting?
Zacks doesn't seem to like LL earnings potential either. We should see LL earnings tomorrow morning. This may give us some idea as to Zacks reliability.
Success in the market requires investing in issues which will increase in value. Success in fund management requires investing in issues which have done well. Sometimes these are one and the same. I, for one, prefer to put my money in issues that will likely increase in value not ones whose value already has been recognized. Best of luck with GILD. I will stick with HALO for a $15 pps.
Great!! If I were still in business, I would offer you a position. It is amazing how many people don't understand this concept. I am now wondering how the upcoming EPB dividend will be handled.
What about the money which flowed into the hands of Dilda regime politicians through the Petrobas scandal?
It will never happen. These days executives run their companies with collusion from their cronies on the boards for their own best interests. With enough pressure, they will be gone with golden parachutes that will make my life time earnings look like a bad tip.
The Petrobas scandal will probably affect the election runoff on the 26th. Almost 7% of EWZ is invested in Petrobas ( a company in which many have lost confidence). EWZ will go down based on the scandal but the election outcome will probably be more business friendly. I am tempted to increase my position under 40 if it gets there. Any coments?
I am an ABBV stockholder and if the inversion tax dodge goes through, I will sell my shares and join any class action suite which may be forthcoming. I believe SHPG is worth about 120 given the market pullback. This stock should sell for a P/E of about 20 to be considered of value.
I think it might be possible. Without the ABBV deal and a current P?E of 30 and essentially no dividend, I wouldn't pay 120 for it even if they get the 1.5million breakup fee.
Gee!! You have my sympathy. You are down 1.00 already. At what point are you going to cover or are you waiting for ex-dividend date and the price drop?
Are you new to investing if you could call shorting investing as opposed to speculating? What you say is true only if the speculator covers the short on ex-dividend date. All else being equal, a high dividend stock tends to increase in price after the ex-dividend drop. Those who short a stock like AGNC either don't believe in the way the compny is run or don't believe in the short term future of REIT's or the stock market in general. Or, they ridiculously "feel" that the stock will go down. For these feeling type speculators, I would recomend roulette.
