sounds like a disgruntled worker's post to me. When I've shopped the local Costco, I see the same happy, shining faces for what seems like years. They are helpful and diligent. I know they're adequately paid and remunerated so benefit from a living wage in a high cost area to reside. The disgruntled poster seems like the type of guy who would use the cheap TP in the bathroom, poke his fingers through the tissue while wiping, and then slyly look around for something brown in color (towel? wood trim? cabinets?) to wipe off the residue & evidence from his miscue. Then return to stocking fresh produce without benefit of washing.
I took what I presume will be a long position I this equity a few months back and am delighted with the performance thus far. Initially I just "bought the tasty dividend", but immediately caught an updraft in the price. Since I'm now a co-owner in WAG, we've been increasing our shopping and prescription fulfillment at Walgreens (sorry CVS, hopefully you'll still make payroll (-: ) Are any of the message board members aware of any proprietary pricing we may realize off the listed retail prices at the store? It seems to me it would make sense for WAG to support it's fellow shareholders through discounted pricing. I would expect this perquisite to be applicable to non-sale items only.
I think he misplaced the decimal point, he meant AMPE will be at least $1.20 by next Friday.
took a significant position (for me) right at the beginning of the new year and have been pleased with the capital appreciation and apparent ability to sustain the juicy dividend. I am also a card/autograph collector and am considering liquidating my collection that took over 40 years to accumulate. Wonder if, as an owner of CLCT, there are any discounts available. My cards are all raw and many haven't seen the light of day in decades.
feel like the positive energy of this community bank is being sucked down by the grim view taken by the majority of investors looking at the banking, insurance, and finance sectors. This firm has been around quite awhile now and, while initial over-expansion may have slowed their profitability, they have recently cut back on overpaid staff and superflous offices. They have been profitable. What timeline should an investor look at before a profitable bank starts paying a dividend? When will the share price get back to unity, and perhaps even exceed it's "coming out party" initial price of $10 per share?
not just a "gamle" to use your words, but a sure loss. you're better off putting the family jewels on red to come up on the roulette wheel....
How about all those UAW workers who took their "easily gotten gains" and bought second homes in Northern Michigan, often times leveraging their primary residence due to the fact they had this unending stream of income.
Bet you can pick up a few cabins in Northern Michigan for a dime on the dollar these days.
To a point I have to agree with your perspective. The bailout is a sort of social welfare helping overpaid and underskilled union workers keep their jobs.
then they have to figure out who wants to buy a vehicle, any vehicle for that matter. I live in coastal california and have talked to a few auto dealer friends who indicated they're just not selling any cars, period. That goes for Japanese, German, and American models.
Laura: "now Michelle, it is not proper or lady-like to take the White House China and sell it on ebay to fund your crack habit. Those dishes belong to the taxpayers of America and are here only for your use".
Michelle, setting down crack pipe: "Huh? Whatchoo say beeach?"
I'm not sure what your point is regarding this. O'Bama is not a slave, although he may be beholden to many. I agree with the above poster, racist remarks are not required, necessary, or appreciated.
but primarily rest with two major objections to putting a huge burden on our country's taxpayers:
1) giving money to the same group that squandered the resources of a company doesn't make a whole helluva lot of sense. What has changed that leads us to believe the money won't go down a rat hole?
2) bailout money to a company, in this case Ford, can't require that people actually buy cars and trucks!
I'm not certain that the recent, continued set backs on Wall Cheat are actually reflective of how the country view O'Bama's pending presidency.
