Two different worlds. The analysts see eps of $5.10 in 2016, less than the $5.26 for this year. The company sees a double digit increase in 2016 and 20% per year growth for the next two years. Why the divergence?
If you want to recapture the withholding don't put them in an IRA or tax sheltered account. I know from experience when I tried to get a rebate. The Canadian tax authorities make you do a fill-in-the-form tap dance that make American bureaucracies look simple to navigate! After my third form submission back and forth with them about my one stock holding I was informed that one set of forms was not enough for the duration of my holding but that I would have to file for each dividend, each quarter.
Waiting for "THE correction" is like waiting for Godot or "THE call" by Joseph Granville.Haven't we been "overdue" for the last 2000 points on the dow? But, to mix metaphors and to duly acknowledge that nobody can see the future, even a broken watch is right twice a day.
Not awesome. Place it in context. This is a small percentage of their trillion dollar portfolio.
This sounds big but put it in context.Their total position is worth $288 million. While it is 11% of Avon, it is a very small percentage of their portfolio.
Shrimpy company in a growth mode. in light of impending growth the company just issued a secondary in which current management took up a third of the offering. New ships are coming to sweep up the seafood. Go with the #1 North American shellfish company and your portfolio will do swimmingly.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Amen. I need my cash also. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas. Just this morning I went into the diner and ordered a three-minute egg. The waitress asked for payment in advance. Keep it all in perspective.
Discount again widened on the Monday Greek sell-off. It hit a record 14.2%. FEAR! Tuesday brought a 2.5% pop in the stock price on large volume. Is this the bottom?
to 13.5% as of 6/26 close. This has almost doubled since March! The yield is now 9.6% versus 8.8% in March. Sellers of ISD are acting as if the Fed has already raised rates a few times. I may be way off base but this seems a little silly. To paraphrase the limbo dancers: "How wide can we go?"
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Why is HAS selling at 25x earnings? 2015 earnings are actually estimated to fall from 2014. The only reason I see is that 2016 earnings estimates are 25% above 2015. Any other reasons? As the bard said, " 'Tis many a slip twixt the cup and the lip."
After the initial wiggles CORR has traded @ $6.08 (bid)-6.09(ask) all day! I thought that the trading might have been halted but, no, orders are flowing in large numbers.I've never a seen anything like it. Not even a penny shift. Any ideas? Will they price the secondary after hours today?
What are the odds that EXXI will not be able to meet payments? Worst case scenario: If EXXI does go bankrupt what happens to the property? I imagine that CORR would have to find a new company to run the assets as they are not an operating company. How much lower rate would they have to offer? I don't think this will happen as management is very experienced but this is just a "what if" exercise.
What does this mean for HAS stock price?
to Neutral from accumulate with the target price lowered to $26 from $30 raises a number of questions: How are they seen by the investment community? How influential are they? Does anybody have access to any actual report spelling out the rationale behind their analysis? Will yesterday's obvious leak before the downgrade be investigated? Does any of this really matter in the long run?
