  • Any business leveraged heavily and dependent on Chinese manufactured products is re-assured to be burned one day or another, at this stage however it may be getting out of control, and the LL price is fine.

    The issue will be the sick lawyers and their greed that may bankrupt the company.

    This issue is NOT just for LL, its for every single industry, from food, nutrition, to materials, chemicals, and medicine, to technology.

    THIS IS THE TIP OF THE ICEBURG and part of China's fall after 2 decades of outsourcing.

    China needs to re-invent itself and create a domestic economy, the days of outsourcing to China have peaked, similar to Japan in the last 1980's.

    Its a no brainer anyway that LL didn't re-assay wood locally, because the costs, and because the concerns were not huge until now. Eventually one would realize, there are no short cuts, and its best to start divesting from China and bringing some value back home to USA.

    Be patient, every day this week the shares will add, and eventually should trade in the high $50, or mid $60's. Lockup period is over and shares are supposed to crash, they didn't and now we already have a short covering, this will continue for days. Shares may be sold of in a few months not necessarily this week.
    Given all the news, GPRO should recover to about where it was before the quarterly earnings report.
    There is NO reason to sell now, until next quarters news, and even then.

    Industrial production has picked up substantially, and housing construction should continue at a modest pace over 2015, even with a slight slowdown. Equipment for military, automotive, and other infrastructure projects, in the back drop of a much lower energy price picture well into 2016, along with unions, and protectionist policy, makes US steel well poised here to steadily grow under talented leadership.
    The situation domestically is significantly better for steel in the last 2 quarters, and especially since the new year, and I would suspect that the lows are already made, unless there is a massive recession globally, and a war in Europe, but even then steel production during wars skyrockets. I would suspect that the next few weeks and months this mild growth story will translate into higher prices for US steel equities, probably in the order of mid $30's. I wouldn't be a seller here, not at all.

    That was before all the market news, moves, and similar companies, and before the executives sold most of their shares last week.
    Intel target for this quarter is $28.25 imho
    Absolutely no reason to buy right now, or at these stages.

  • This company sources and steals emails from companies, and employees somehow through their tracking of emails or generating of emails, then send scandalous emails, in an attempt to highly motivate the user to register, use and spend money on their services, by deceit. They send out emails without any regard to legislation in countries that require a do not spam list.
    Everything about the quality of leads, contacts, and method of operation are dangerous, and not in the best interest of companies operating outside of a communist, corrupt regime.
    Avoid this like the plague, or I guess otherwise if you have money to be made get behind the scandal, like many of the investment banks did, greed.
    This is an unbelievable raping of liberty in my opinion similar to what Mr. Mark Cuban suggested on CNBC.

  • Capital flows in stages, and with pivots. A Tsunami of capital investment, and risk taking will occur anytime, and it will be too late in the short term to buy in, unless you hold longer. I believe that this even is begging in earnest last week and this week for NBG. I believe that by January 2015 we will be trading NBG atleast in the $3 range, possible even testing by next quarter the highs of 2013, in the $6's.

    I could just keep going on and on, yes its kind of bumpy and not perfect, but if it was, then the NBG shares would already be trading in the $30's.

    Now is the time to go in, and take a calculated risk in my opinion. Not a time to sell.

    If it breaks this at about $2.56 it will indicate a major bottom is in and provide a solid base low foundation at this level, and should move upward to the 200 day moving average within a few days/weeks. The 200 day moving average is low to begin with -- lets break $5 by X-mas.

    Yes you are correct. It is still part of Europe's continent, and there are million of Nationals in USA/Canada/Australia and Asia that will retire part-time or own real estate, additionally it is dirt cheap, people are looking for a step up in stability before putting capital in further, which will occur in time. As i said earlier, it is a stupid time to sell NBG in my opinion, it can only creep upward from here based on the major positive changes due for EU this month.

  • howcomethisdoesnotwork howcomethisdoesnotwork Dec 2, 2014 10:30 AM Flag

    After QE is decided in Europe, hopefully within a week, if not, then next quarter, and the decision and meeting of the TRIOKA is completed, and budget past beyond Dec 31, 2014, this will lay the foundation for capital flow and stability for the rest of EU, including a much lower Euro. The stability is already started, its a matter of NBG executing and securing their debt obligations and generating revenue, which will occur once investment picks up. Don't forget there are a lot of wealthy people in Asia, and USA that wouldn't mind putting some further capital into Greece and the financial institutions. The worst is over, hence i see NBG in the teen by late next year, we may even see a quick move up in equity price to over $10 with the deals completed as early as this month.

    This is the WORST time to sell NBG shares, its only upside from here 95% in my opinion.

    Twitter needs to purchase YikYak App ASAP, and invest before they get screwed in a year unless they come up with a better version of this company using their servers.

    MS, and GS had positive news on NBG in the past quarter.
    Euro about to possibly do QE and what ever it takes.
    Greece structurally changes and is well ahead of the rest of EU, may in fact have positive GDP next quarter.
    This is the most hated and negative Bank in media, and in numbers and should have bottomed.
    Euro been low for past month or so, will be competitive for big EU companies, yielding possible recover.
    This is about the bottom for NBG, could be the start of what happened in Japan late last year, and in the US year before that, so expect Europe to return the best over the next 12 months.
    NBG, capital will flow and drive up the share price, good time to invest.
    Target $12 by 2015 at sometime.

    RE : " TWTR " is ready to fly

    People are real dummy now, given the technology brewing and starting at TWTR. We will have high quality robust analytic engines driven by IBM in collaboration, which would include other technologies such as Cognos, Oracle, and SAP in time, and other notable analytics services, which will spruce up revenues by 2016-17... not to mention not only e-commerce, but live-commerce, something others are not really working on, not to mention monetizing these variables to provide better value per user on ad revenue, driving up ad income per user, something FB and others don't really have, and not to mention Ad revenue, much of which will be based on events, Olympics, Soccer FIFA, common wealth games, sports, political elections, etc etc... these things will come together at latest by 2017, and probably will start gaining some traction in the coming quarters. TWTR will eventually hit a billion users as the global media source, like TV in the 20th century, but with more functionality, and new apps running off their services.

    You are mistaken if you don't start to accumulate at these lows this quarter or this month. TWTR target for January 2016 - $120

    This board has too much hype and spin by day traders. The reality is the share price probably will trade $3.00 to $3.60 in the next week in advance of earnings, and after earnings probably fall a further $1 in the coming weeks. Best to purchase in the winter, near the lows. I don't see any profit until 2017.

  • howcomethisdoesnotwork by howcomethisdoesnotwork Oct 29, 2014 9:30 AM Flag

    Its a casino, get out of the way of a massive rig before getting killed. The shares can easily pop up $5-10 just on this discussion alone this week.

  • howcomethisdoesnotwork howcomethisdoesnotwork Oct 28, 2014 6:06 PM Flag

    Its a scam, a #$%$ casino! Welcome to the sick nonsense of greed run by liars, cheats, and rigged systems. The DOW should be in the 14,000's if anything.

    What does FB do anyway? nothing. It moves advertisement revenue from old school newspapers, magazines, and TV to its web servers. There is only so much it can grow.

  • howcomethisdoesnotwork by howcomethisdoesnotwork Oct 28, 2014 2:45 PM Flag

    GS put a lid on growth, not a spark! What a joke. Before GS there was potential, now its just a meager play with a target between $4-7, its all hype. Has anyone checked out the massive debt, and the deal structure ? MNKD will barely make a profit in the next 2 years, and shares can easily retest the lows of around $4 by the summer. I wouldn't go near this one, even if it hits $8, it was higher than $8 on FDA approval. How soon we forget.

  • That is an understatement.
    The executive team needs help, or better PR.
    The company needs to be laser focused on product development and deployment ASAP
    User engagement, other metrics, and increasing MAU have to be invested into urgently to get the numbers growing above 15% a quarter, and they can.
    Brand development has to occur too and probably a hot purchase.
    They NEED much better communication to build confidence, otherwise after next quarter it may bomb. There is likely changes happening now, the founders should sort of get out of the way a bit. Its still possible to surprise to the upside, there is so much opportunity, these guys are not getting it right.

  • howcomethisdoesnotwork by howcomethisdoesnotwork Oct 28, 2014 10:00 AM Flag

    Most likely they still have lots of work ahead of them in performing further clinical trials and building evidence for the current drugs and alternative indications. There is probably also a lot of spending on marketing, IP purchases, and further spending on research. Company needs further maturity, and any price movements are speculation this quarter. It may or may not move up before earnings, but typically earnings have not been the catalysts for share price movements, it has been more related to studies, new partnerships, or regulatory changes. There is a reason also why there has been a gradual and consistent sell off in the past month.

    We may see shares at $2 by end of the year.

    They should begin the share buy back immediately before its too late. I bet it started yesterday as the shares skyrocketed half hour before the Ebola news in NYC, it will begin again, and share price should see $170 very quickly.
