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.
I trade this stock and try to have a high position for ex-dividend date. So far, over the last 2 years, I have bought 2200 shares and sold 1000 shares (bought 200 today at 14.20). Not including dividends, I just figured out that my profit has been $13,500 based on todays closing price. I hope the market continues to be "off it's rocker".
Maybe you could explain to me why one would short these no profit biotechs. It seems to me that the ost you could make woud be 13 points given a complete disaster. The up side however, given a large company buyout or a major drug breakthrough could be anyones guess on the upside. Recent examples indicate a 4X profit being possible. "I feel it will go lower" seems to be pretty weak reasoning given upside vs. downside. Also, at what point will you "give up" and cover the short if needed? These things could happen very quickly or you could see soe advance signals like yesterday's 3.15% increase.
IMO this deal was problematic from the beginning. Abbvie apparently overpaid for Shire not to improve their core business but to buy a tax dodge. Now they are stuck with either concluding the deal or paying a one billion $ plus break up fee. A lose/lose situation. One seriously has to question the decision making abilities of the executives responsible. Then again, one has to consider management goals. Are they into developing a larger company, hence earning larger salaries, bigger pensions, and larger severence packages all at the expense of the "owners'? The stock market is ireally rigged in favor of management through their goals being different from the stock holders. It is though, virtually the only game in town.
Trust in the old advice, "you can't time the market ".Since I have owned PLOW I have watched it go up a small amount each week with a few exceptions. Looking at fundamentals (P/E 17,5, yield 4.7% etc.) this does not look like a trading stock but a keeper. It is currently 38% off the 52 week low and 27.5% off its high. Even over the past week which has been dismal for the market, it maintained its value. The big question is, not what negative world events may occur or will the market in general have a more severe sell off but do you believe in this company's future. As for the poster recommending a REIT, I believe this to be a good place for money but what will happen when interest rates go up?
