    is Santa going to bring us a 50 handle ?

  • iamgarce iamgarce 2 hours 16 minutes ago Flag

    if you want really good picks , check out my rectrum ... call ahead and i'll let'em dry out a bit .. .g

  • what do you base that on ? a feeling ? for that to happen ,you'd have to see about a 30% gain in
    earnings and at least 10% on the top line , in a manner that does not appear to be engineered ...

  • i do not agree with all of your thesis , but you are spot on with your
    last line ... the damned street is acting like the recent price declines are
    just a blip and will "vee" back up .... this price malaise is going to
    continue for at least 2 more quarters and even then is not going to
    bounce right up ...
    many companies can "do nothing" for a short period of time , but the longer
    the low prices remain , the more problems they have ...
    for the time being , i'm gathering dry powder and sometime next year
    plan to buy a couple of energy companies .. most likely KMI and
    maybe a producer ..
    it's time to just watch and learn ... thanks .. garce

    she sure did ,except for the oil/gas guys ... i'm certain that a lot of those shorts have covered
    only to see a lot more downside , now they are probably as nervous as anyone .. there
    could be a lot more downside to oil/gas , but those might also be at bottoms ..
    it's great for retail investors when the big guys are confused .. the playing field is level .. g

    can't compare current IBM with MSFT , flat periods not the same

  • me suspects that as AR and VR move towards mainstream that the "facts" will be fast , furious and confusing.
    I just read an article about MSFT and their efforts to lessen the energy consumption of OLED screens .. this
    leads me to believe that there are some signifigant differences between oled on silicon and anything else ..
    OLED is supposed to use much less energy than LED / LCD or whatever ...
    Despite that OLED screen has been increasingly adopted in smartphones to save power; screen is still one of the most energy-consuming modules in smartphones. Techniques such as local dimming are proposed to further reduce the power consumption of OLED screen, but it is hard to decide which part of the screen could be dimmed, and it often results in compromised user experience. Intuitively, when a user interacts with a smartphone via the touch screen, the screen areas are covered by the user’s fingers and even some of the neighboring areas could be safely dimmed.
    Would a silicon based OLED screen with a fiber bundle solve this energy problem ?

    i prefer VZ ... but still , both T and VZ are in control , there will be blips along the way , but these 2 will
    endure and both do quite well ... anyone who thinks that either TMUS or S , can put a big hurt
    on these 2 with the pricing crap , really needs to do more in depth analysis ..
    For one thing , but T and VZ operate with the scrutiny of the treas. dept and need to do some things ,
    from time to time , to keep antitrust stuff at bay , so they help maintain the illusion that there is
    true competition by going along with the current "price war" ..
    Both companies have long held strategies to deal with such things and where the bottoms are
    for them to maintain margins and such ... most accounts that are migrating to Tmus and S are
    not the high rev subscribers .. more than likely , many of those migrating to them are in the
    form of parents , maintaining their T or VZ and putting the kids on the cheap services .. and other
    such scenarios ... g

    a big rollout at the E3 in June !!!

    a strange thing has been happening over the past 20 - 30 years ... very large numbers of people have
    come into the US , legitimately , from Viet Nam ,Korea , Japan and the Mideast ... none of them give a
    hang about the black's concerns .. they are here to work hard and have a much better life than back home ..
    they are now becoming a significant part of the electorate ... so those politicians pandering to the race card are
    losing their base ...
    the blacks keep blaming whites , which are quickly diminishing in their numbers .. who are they going
    to complain to next ?

    Jim Chanos: What I'm shorting

    are you old enough to remember IBM around 1989-1991 ? they were paying
    a fantastic dividend , that would up going as high as 10%(when the price
    fell to 45 !!!) and the company continued to borrow billions to pay their rent ..
    then VOILA .. there was talk that a consortium of Japanese insurance companies
    could actually pool capital and buy the company, lock , stock and barrel ..
    prior to that it was inconceivable that IBM could have ever been bought ..
    Parties are fun and we all like them , but stay at one too long and you may
    never go to another one .. garce

    absolutely not .. analysis is 1 thing .. negotiating is another ..
    it would be very unusual to find both attributes in a single
    person ...
    as for both of them ??? CHARLETAINS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    When i was in school , a big question was .."will the US ever
    elect another poor boy president ,a la A. Lincoln ...
    Well , we've had a couple of them lately ... Clinton and Obama ..
    i wouldn't give a fig for either one of them ...

    we are in a new pharma age .. with the new bio genetics , they are discovering that the drugs are much
    more personalized .. will work for some and not others and also have varying side effects ... this is becoming
    very evident with the new cancer drugs ... since the bio drugs work to allow one's own body to tackle
    the disease , there is tweaking needed to apply to different people ..
    also , Eliquis , as with all drugs , have their warnings and many have some death rate ...

    sometimes there are very good lessons to learn by observation .. i got out over a year ago , but
    continue to watch and see how things play out .. if NES can turn a corner , i might get back in ,
    although i do expect a large company to scoop them up on the cheap .. after all , they do have
    trucks and such ..

    why do you say that 5% is a joke ... companies pay out some % of cash flow ...
    for a couple of years , VZ is shoveling cash at their debt
    what companies pay over 5% ?
    1) the ones who's pps gains about 1% / yr
    2) the ones that are circling the drain ..
    NOTICE .. this is planet Earth .. i ya don't like it , then try the moon .. .

    kindly take a few moments and read some posts to homedepotsucks .. and see how many people
    are fed up with their "customer service" .. the stock is on fire , going through the roof , along with
    their obscene profits ..
    so much for the 3-5% customers who hate a company ... those folks don't spend enough to make
    a fig ... same is true for just about any large company ... .Tmus and S will enjoy taking on the
    customers who leave T and VZ , but don't spend much money either ...
    no company can please everyone all the time , and they don't lose sleep over it .. .
