they sure could do the same thing .. like trading carbon credits , however you won't want to see the financials ...
VZ , like any other company is not a socialist entity .. it's a paragon of capitalism ... allowing people to use
minutes as a tradable currency would mean less revenue and less profit .. don't look for that to happen .
I think that the closest any telecom will come to that would be for a group, or family to buy minutes in bulk and
allow all members of the group to draw from the those minutes ... garce
WHOA , there cowboy ... remember last year ? NES was supposed to make bazillions in the Bakken area ,
a la acquiring PF ... then they blamed cold weather for freezing water and scuttling drilling ops ...
As is post this , most of the south is gripped by freezing weather .. NES will freeze up there too ...
Hekmann's place were terrific , but the premise was NG would rise back to $10 , instead it went the other
way and so did manic drilling ... Haliburton will most likely buy the NS scraps for a dime on a dollar ,
they have no obligation to keep NES afloat and can let them approach or actually go BK , then pick up
the pieces and run their own show ....
good reply .. other factors will most likely affect share prices for
a while , but VZ is continuing to execute the plans put in place
by IVAN ... they are not looking at 2014 to rebound , or 2015 or
2020 .. instead they have a good business plan in place and
they don't waver from it , they don't chase "trends or fads" ...
VZ , like IBM , takes the long term view to build a great business ,
share prices will take care of themselves ....
Until the biogenetic guys can jigger our brains for telepathy ,
there will be an addictive demand from communication and
data transfer that will continue to grow geometrically for
generations .... g
Richard Prector was also revered by many for his wave theory calls ... he was fortunate enough
to have made a few prescient calls , but after that , he's just been another talking head .
Theories are just that .. theories ,,, not to be ignore , but not to be blindly followed either .. garce
i would say that's he's spot on with his theory ... the fly in the ointment is that ANYONE who tries to time
markets is a fool , the fact that he adds 2014 to his thesis , means his words are junk to me ......
Do you remember back in '06 ?? when Motley Fool would have articles about being prepared for the next
big crash ? they NEVER said when , matter of fact they said that it might be 20 or 30 years off, but iterated
without impunity , that it will come ... guess what ? it did come .. Fama's recession will come also , and moreover
tremendous inflation .. when ??? might not be until 2030 .... the real message should be that no matter what
the climate is , it is very prudent for all investors to be prepared as though a collapse is a the threshhold .
be a good Boy Scout ... BE PREPARED ... G
believe it or not k generators are one of the least returned items .. but are still spot on
as to Phil ... in many areas that HD is in , people cannot afford a quality private contractor ..
HD is like a dollar store for them and most are satisfied with the work ..
So what if it's below par ... the facts are that money flows to HD , they know their
customer bases and manage accordingly ...
You can go to a MacDonalds in the impoverished Catskill Mountains and lose your appetite ,
but go to a Mac Donalds in say Miami Beach ... "viva la difference" ... I'd bet my bottom
dollar that there are some HD locations that blow away what the private contractors
can offer , but they are also in locations where per capita income is more than 15k ... g
• Life isn’t fair
Lets make that 4 words .. "life is not fair" ..
NOW , take a can of paint and a 4 inch brush .. write those words very large on a wall and read it over and over
NOW .. start with that premise and it's possible to succeed ... to bad that liberals feel accomplished , once
a thought has become concrete , but not yet executed and their premise is that there are no bumps or
potholes in the road ........................ of course they keep repeating the mantra of 'GIMME" ... LOL .. G
well , so far , the Dems , especially Obama have had miserable success in standing up against
large corporations (including banks) ... that's why corporations are holding record amounts of
cash , both at home and abroad ... savings is a pariah for a capitalist system , choking out real
growth .. all of the cash held by corporations is doing no good for the general economy ... but
it keeps them firmly in control ..
most likely the reason is that Obama and his cohorts will not bend or comprimise , so industry
does not move ... somebody has to give them something to open up their coffers .. of course
when they do , there is so much capital backed up , the the likely scenario is tremendous inflation ,
which the next republican admin will have to deal with , probably fail and lose the WH in 2020 ...
some cycles are very predictable , though not timeable .... g
democrats generally get the best part of a ride set up by Republican initiatives , when the Republican regain
the show , there is a mess to clean up and by the time new initiatives are in place , the Dems come back in
and take credit ... Democrats have had good rides during war times , but then wars are better than the
FED at stimulating terrific economic growth , but such growth cannot sustain ...
that did not sound like a bash to me .. please understand that many of us knew from the
start this was a spec play at best ... BUT .. we have had to listen to so much Polyanna
tripe about moonshots and can't miss ... that was okay , but the river of tears (which
won't freeze at 32 deg) is a bit much ... face the facts .. this thing is going to get bounced
around like a superball . there will be rallies that suck in new money , then another round of
shorting and so on , until all that's left is dust ... i know , i've paid my does and overdid
some of these things .. i watched NES for almost year , then bought in and was ready
to buy more , until that big downdraft ... bailed immediately , lost 50% , but that's better
than where i'd be now if it didn't sell ... this is a good one to watch and learn ,
if , a year from now , it's still a going concern i could climb back in . right now . just
ride out the storm .. g
Drains ... great to see that you are still around ... btw have you even looked at any facts ????
check out VZ fcf and see that they could still double the debt and serve it .. the cash flow from the VOD
portion of VZW can handle the current debt ...
Most of the their 4g lte buildout has been done , very little plans for more FIOS .. this means capex will
be diminishing and cash flow will be increasing and that debt will be a nothing event ..
You are such an expert , could you share with us the actual cost of servicing VZ debt ? What's the avg % of
interest is there on total debt .
Since you and your family live in a sewer and basically have no contact with the rest of the world , i will
offer a clue .. Interest Rates are as they have been in over a century ... thats like FREE MONEY and
moreover , VZ has locked in those rates for a long long time ... g
THe fact that you and your family continue to post #$%$ and not be embarrassed is proof of mental problems ..
get some help .. Obama can help ..
agree .. IF i was going to play the storm thing , GNRC is the way to go .. yes , HD will sell a lot of generators ,
but how much will that add to the bottom line , especially since some other outfit gets a big slice for the
installation ... HD makes a bale more money redoing a roof , now if you think that a lot of roofs will get
blown off , that could the needle for HD .. later .. garce
the fact remains that the "manna" that has been touted about the US becoming a major exporter of
LNG/NG/oil will not come to fruition ... prices will be coming down in Europe ... commodities go to
the highest bidder .. it's a lot cheaper for Russia to send gas/oil to Europe through pipes than to
ship it from the US ... we are already in a worldwide glut and the "peak oil theory " seems to
have evaporated , as nobody had any idea just how much of the stuff is still in the ground .. by
the time that's gone , alternate energies will have grown to supply what we need , especially as
energy using devices and productions are getting more and more efficient ...
and yes .. long term isn't as germain to NES fortunes as the immediate conditions .. which include
the freezing of the Bakken area .. things are not looking very promising at this point .. g
i don't think that yahoo will allow the link , but here goes
if it doesn't show up , the gist is that Russia is prepared to ship record amounts of LNG during 2014 ...
add to that the exploration by many other countries , including drilling in the Mediterranean Ocean ..
and those great markets that the US is supposed to export gas / oil to will not be there due to access
to their own cheap gas / oil
to sum up .. the world is racing to effect a tremendous collapse of energy markets .. that would make
sense , as this dynamic has happened many time to all commodities ... scarcity and prices spur
exploration and development , then oversupply creates gluts that can last for years ... BUT ... without the
export factor , there will be less drilling within the US and less business for services .. NES absolutely
needs to have full bore drilling and get contracts ... as drilling pace is reduced in the US , so are the
fortunes of companies like NES ... g
broke through support today ... look for single digits , maybe very soon ... i'm still looking for 7 , but if the
shorts think they can drive to a buck , then that's where it goes ... and massive shorting could occur ..
remember shorting a stock that's at 10 cents yields a 50% gain when it goes to a nickel . i 've seen shorts
play badmitton with stocks under a buck , they love it .. cover a bit , stock rises , new blood comes in , then
reshort ... rinse and repeat until the company no longer exists ..
not saying that will happen to NES, but conditions are ripe for a short holiday ... g
don't think that nails will work , but you might trying soaking the ground with copper sulphate ...
girdling is the best method
and when did you ask me to come over here ? i already had a decent position
before i ever saw a post from you , unless you are using multiple id's
kindly explain how this works ? i don't see it ..
higher gas prices means fewer units need to be sold to maintain increasing revenues .. that means less to
no drilling .. NES gets business when drilling is taking place , not when it's abating ....
NES needs for drillers to drill baby drill in order to make any money ....
