  • BH is like any other mutual fund .. a tipping point is reached , where the standard investments are no longer
    there and rather than to overload the port on a few stocks , the money needs to go someplace else ..
    in other times , they may have bought bonds ... weigh the difference .. put that money into a 10 year bond
    and hold to maturity for 2% or invest in IBM with a 10 year horizon and they will do much better , not to
    mention the income stream from the div ... Buffet has plenty of other investments that are maturing and will
    be sold down for profit ... it's a different game at that level .. IBM at least represents a return of capital and
    a chance for profit ...
    the big investors are not looking for 2 and 3 baggers ... 15-20% is fine .. g

    a 9 cent bump will cost about $390 million ... if they are paying more than 5% on some of their debt , it would
    be better spent there .. soooo .. we'll something , maybe 9 cents , but not 15 or 20 , which i hope someday
    they will be able to increase .. .g

    could go either way .. mgmt has already stated that there is no plan for buyout , they
    have had offers , but they were considered jokes ... mgmt will listen and if there is
    a wow offer on the table , will consider it ... it's still up to shareholders though .. g

    nice find .. i always believe everything that i read on SA .. nothing but the truth ...

    i don't think that ATT is doing all that well in the mobile area ... that deal could very well
    turn out to be a boondoggle ..

    when did i say they were the best ? i have maintained that VZ is a very
    well run company , good plans , good execution ... it fits me very well ..

    he did the same thing with KMI .. couldn't slobber all over it enough and pandered to Richard K .. then , all of
    a sudden .. nothing , but a report that his fund sold it
    fact is , he has no clue how to play energy .. probably cannot believe that oil / gas has fallen so far and is
    staying low ..
    How many times have we heard him pound the table .. "let the price come to you" .. well , that's what i've
    been doing with energy for the past 4 years ... going to continue to wait , i haven't seen what i want to
    see yet ..
    1) more M&A ,,, a few BIG deal '
    2) bond rating agencies to downgrade debt on most companies
    i doubt i will be buying before next year .. garce

    Global Deflationary Death Spiral?

    iamgarce iamgarce Jul 28, 2015 9:33 AM Flag

    i wouldn't say scary , YET .. however , since the CB's have not been able to ignite any level of inflation , tells
    me that they have been battling deflation and have not yet won ...
    economists have always been confident that inflation can be handled , tho' painful , they have no clue what
    to do about deflation ..
    the solution should be simple ... whenever there is economic malaise , the fixes all go to the top ,
    that's okay for events like the bank meltdown we saw in 08-09 , stabilize the system ..
    after that , the only way to fight deflation is to put money in at the bottom , like workers wages ....
    but not unemployment and social supports ,
    instead of calling for across the board raises , like fast food workers leaping to 15 / hr , it's time for
    FISCAL ACTION ... remove income tax for the first 30k earned ... that should also be the poverty
    threshold and wages should be forced to match that level of income ..
    we have found out that pumping trillions into the banking system is fine to keep banks solvent , but none
    of that money get to the real economy , so it isn't inflationary , but one thing that can be counted on .....
    is that the lower 3 quartiles will spend just about every dollar they can get their hands on , drive
    demand , drive prices higher .. garce

    excellent point .. so many of the companies that retail investors invest in , are really bets on what
    the insts will do ...

    that wouldn't be the board where you told to "just buy it" at 44.xx and now is 35 - ? ??

    use the money where it makes the most difference ... with so many shares still outstanding , a rise
    of 9 cents is quite a slug .. , but i'll take it in a heartbeat , even though buying back shares makes
    the most sense ...

  • iamgarce iamgarce Jul 27, 2015 6:23 PM Flag

    i don't think so ...
    sounds to me like you are about 15 years old , repeating some "sound bites" that you heard regarding
    other companies .. each to be taken on it's own merit ..
    if you are going to post such expert views on a public message board , how about some background ..
    let's hear your answers to these questions :
    1) how much debt was VZ carrying prior to buying out the wireless segment of VOD ?
    2) what was the level of debt after the deal closed ?
    3) how much cash did VZ have before and after the deal ?
    4) your claim of current debt = 114 B is close enough .. so now , how much has VZ paid down in the past
    12 months ?
    5) have they been shrinking or growing cash on hand ..
    6) what is the current cash flow rate ?
    now , BOZO .. figure this one out ...
    buying back a share of stock (assuming it's retired) saves $2.42 cents from div not paid . that's about 4.8% ..
    most of VZ's debt is far less than 4.8% ... as a share holder , i want the money to go where it gives me
    the biggest bank for the buck ... garce

    yeah ?? so what .. you continue to demonstrate a complete lack of knowledge concerning
    stocks in general and BMY specifically ... i care a lot more about what price BMY will
    be at in 2025 , than i do for the next year or so ...

    Jon Ho Interview

    iamgarce iamgarce Jul 27, 2015 12:29 PM Flag

    very nice interview indeed .. we've been waiting for some bigger picture scope ...
    i would posit , that by 2020 , we will have a consumer product for the masses ...
    as always , i point to industrial history to map product evolution , when we study this stuff in school, or
    books , we get no perspective of time , false starts , consumer acceptance , standards and the such ..
    remember .. TAE invented the incandescent bulb around 1876 ... over 1/2 of the US had no electricity to
    use them , 30 years later !!!

    i mentioned same on a couple of other boards and promptly told i was wrong ..
    there is not doubt , in my mind , that many of the energy companies have been playing balance sheet
    games , not in the manner of Enron , but not all that different either ..
    low prices fix a lot of problems , but there is commensurate pain ..
    i've been waiting for about 4 years to build an energy portfolio , this is one case , where i will hold on to
    advice from Jim Cramer ... "let the prices come to you" ..
    keep an eye on gold .. it tracked oil prices on the way up , almost in lock step, and now seems to be doing
    same on the down side ...
    forget about the analysts .. for the most part , they are under the age of 40 , and have not played any
    "back nines" .. garce

  • iamgarce iamgarce Jul 27, 2015 10:52 AM Flag

    doo .. haven't you noticed that these kind of poster are actually playing some sort of
    "rotisserie investment " game ?? their arguments are all based on headlines and sound bites
    from the talking heads ...
    many of them are looking at the recent swoon in oil/gas prices , predicting that one morning we
    wake up and prices are zooming through the roof and stocks are getting bid to the moon ...
    ain't gonna happen ..
    i'm looking for both oil and gold to follow similar patterns going forward .. nobody knows where
    the bottoms are , nor WHEN .. what i know is that bottoms will be put in eventually ..
    then there will be rallies off the bottoms and most likely a retest , if not 2 , of the bottoms , then
    eventually prices will rise steadily over time , but there is no hurry to put more money in ,
    patience will be rewarded ...
    it may be 3- 5 years before we see another bull market for either gold or oil and most likely
    other commodities will languish ... garce

    yup , but IF you mean this winter , then i would suggest looking a wider scope of data .. not the least of
    which is El NINO .. in past El Nino's , the NE of US has had 2 or 3 mild to very mild winters following , yes ,
    lots of heat in the summer and strong A/C demands , but the large funds that move prices look at
    everything and adjust their models ..
    A warm winter won't be friendly to NG and oil .. g
