i have to laugh a bit here ... regardless of the board , whenever somebody posts
about exdiv/div/ etc ... there are a slew of opinions ... one of THE most insane
trading strategies is "catching that div" .. it's a suckers game ... there are far
more important metrics to look at for both trading and investing ...
that the shorts have been wrong ??? shorts are probably the most patient of any class of investor/traders ...
they work by percentages and their best days are ahead with NES ...
gw .. it was NOT old news .. there was mention in the last cc of new contracts coming , but
could not be announced ... so the announcement was new news ... or confirmation ..
the dilution will only occur .. if all things remain equal ... logical
thinking would say that increasing supply , while demand
remains the same that the price will drop , it doesn't have to
happen that way , but probably will , what doesn't make
sense is to predict how much the price will drop , given the
size of new issue ... caution should be the watchword ..
let the dust settle before commiting new/more money .. g
of course , but the CC was nebulous .. remember the EVF
customer that we heard so much about ... evaporation ...
the cc didn't move the needle , but the pr did ... and , unlike
the "old days" .. Eman is on a lot of radars and a lot of
I'm just wondering when the defense contractors move off
the dime and contract for some real volume .. do we
need to improve the displays some more ?
guess i'm just going through a bout of frustration ..
have to get out and see if there are any hungry browns
up in the res ...cabin fever seems to be setting in ...
and various other conditions could take it oversold to 140 ... no hurry ... good time to slowly
accumulate ... i believe more asset sales are coming ... IBM has to shrink before big profits
return ... could we also see some serious mining of that patent trove ??
i got befuddled about 25 years ago on the div issue .. called
my broker and he cleared everything up .. especially the
part about the broker adjusting price for the buyer on exdiv
days ... after that ,i knew it was folly to trade by div dates ..
or any thing else, other than funadamentals , though i have
paid my share of tuition for learning about options (!!!!!_)
good luck ... i sure would like to see it , but at least in NYS .. there is a very strong bloc that doesn't want
this .. they also have most of the politicians in their pockets and vote all over the place , regardless of where
their residences are .. most likely many many of them vote multiple times ... g
many women want to dance all night wit' the guy what brung'em , but then women are notorious
for choosing the wrong guy .. it's time for oil/gas to take a rest ... so many people get concerned
about the stock market not having a correction for years , but every investment arena has
corrections and energy is long long overdue ...
keep your equipment in your pants until a better time ... g
where is the swamp located ?? i'm starting to invest in swamps .. a million years from
now , those swamps are where oil is going to come from ...
Jimmye .. very interesting .. thanks ... i have often been surprised to find out who played with who ....
caught a couple little smallies this afternoon .. watching the loons was a lot more fun though .. seems like
whenever they around , the fishing stinks .. (same for the otters) ... lol .. .g
not worry Jimmye ... unless one is a customer , potential customer or a nabob , the tour would
be from the hallway , looking in ... they wouldn't let just anyone suit up and go inside ... one
thing i do miss about not working at IBM was that i used to get the chance to talk to a few
operators and get some info ...
thanks Rock .. yahoo keeps confusing me .. i minute they show the close at 219 , the next 233 ...looking at the
chart it seems to have closed with 2 different values (i'm gettin' a migraine .. )
make or break for the Jints Sunday .. how are the Bears looking this week ?
back on the gold standard , it was just that easy to devalue a currency ..
not so today .. you can try to beat it down , but other forces can work
against it ....
love those perch ... we don't get many over 12 in. around here .. but there are some
places with walleyes ... taste about the same , but get some size to them ... still
early for the browns to come to the shallows .. but we can take them til end of nov ..
which record you going for ? the perch ? interesting that the world record still stands
from 1866 .. Dr c c abbot from NJ .. .g
