    Don't the shorts always say, "Got to fill the Gap"

    yeah , longs say the same thing when a stock craters ... my experience has shown that gaps get filled
    about 40% of the time ...

    maybe sooner than we think , though i won't be surprised , nor disappointed , if the move doesn't come for
    a couple more quarters, i gotta get some quid to buy some more ... lol ... just keep plowing that div back in ,
    and sleep well ... F has recovered and rebuilt itself to forge ahead ... g

    today's action may very well have been the start of the shorts covering ... the volume , though welcome , doesn't make sense today , UNLESS ... GM is suffering a drain and those folks want to stay with an American
    car company ... Ford certainly looks to be in a sweet spot and should have a nice run for a few years ...
    my guess is that F stays in range for another quarter or 2 ...
    Looks like the Airplane guy is worth is salt , despite so much negativity when he took over ... since i saw
    first hand what Cookie Man did with IBM , that just verified what i had felt for years .. that the top folks at
    a large company just need to have business acumen and don't have to be intimate with company ,such
    as going up through the ranks ... g

    Political Posting Nutcases

    dzeeman , himself , is no matter to me , what really gets me in the short hairs , is the fact that there are
    so many of him ,,, just about every board has been hijacked by these people .. ruins it for the rest of us ..
    if it's not political crap , it's bashing the company ... there are soooooo many other forums for all of that
    crap .. why not post at one of them .. when i have a political axe to grind , i don't do it on a stock message
    board , that's for sure ...

    Why It Took Years & Years...

    if Mary was smart , she would blame it on the MEN running the company , then do her best for another 1 or
    so , quit and run for President .. she will have 52% of the vote in her pocket !!!!
    actually , this is nothing new ... it happens frequently with our vaunted mega cap companies ... whenever a
    new CEO takesover , the #$%$ from the previous person comes rolling out ... in this case it's more than
    just the last CEO ...
    she needs to stay out in front ,expose the whole thing , then put the correct controls in place and she
    will do fine ...

    i bought VZ because of the dividend , which was over 6 at the time ,
    now it's about 4.5% .. talk about getting screwed , eh ????????????
    I'm gonna sell Red tomorrow and buy me some o' them thar CD's that
    the pretty girl at the bank said that i should own .. maybe even a few
    savings bonds , then i'll clean up .... that'll show'em ... g

    New York City was the last stop , once VZ received go ahead , they took a break stringing
    FIOS ... check out the population figures .. there are plenty of poor people in NYC .. lots of'em ,
    of all stripes ... so let's get off the whining ....

  • iamgarce iamgarce Mar 31, 2014 5:50 PM Flag

    VZ sold copper lines to Frontier .. same thing though , it's too expensive to wire up the rural
    areas .. the same thing existed 80 years ago .. with electricity .. during the depression , the
    govt pass the Rural Electricification Act , stating that every house and farm must have electricity passing
    them . even cable companies don't go everywhere , so those folks need satellites ..
    NOW ,, the govt could pass an act , stipulating, that all homes in the US have access to
    cable or fibre ... the staggering cost could then be born by the you and the rest of the taxpayers
    and you would complain about that ....

  • iamgarce iamgarce Mar 31, 2014 5:47 PM Flag

    you must be new to VZ , otherwise you wouldn't have to ask that question .... the original plan was to pass
    18 million homes , then stop . that would give time to assess whether or not to continue the build out .
    I believe that they have resumed ...

    not new to NES ... impact of improved credit facility ??? that could be either good or bad ,
    but with a company swimming in debt and also having had to rs , it's just another
    caution flag ..
    the story is great , the company started with a good premise , but it seems though it's
    a tough business ..
    water and it's transport , has long been a brass ring , that many have tried to grab ,
    only got air ... it's just tough to make money ..
    even delivery of potable water .. it takes a lot of money and time to build a good
    pipeline , by that time , the water picture changes and the companies can't make
    enough money ..
    NES is a very speculative stock ,,, i was in last year for a while, then bailed with a loss ,
    i do continue to follow it , as there is knowledge to be gained that will serve me well
    going forward .. i doubt that i will buy back , though .. g

    it's funny how things come around ... back in the 50's T. Watson Sr. said that the world will not
    need any more computers .. there were about 50 installed computers around the world at that time ..
    the next 50 years saw a hardware explosion on every level .. now , IBM is reverting back to the
    50's model ... they will only need few Watson's to run everything that everybody wants ... utilitizing
    cloud technology ... the money will continue to be brought in in trucks (maybe a few trains to
    please Mr. Buffet ) ... garce

    is on par with Oculus ... interview on BBR ... " nobody has even seen a device , there have been about
    40K kits send to developers to come up with a product . Supposed to be next gen due soon which is supposed
    to be a knockout ." " these companies are now spending an average of 9 years with VC until going
    public "
    I post this to remind all .. that all things OLED , including Emagin Corp. , are in developement .. as i have
    stated before , it was quite by accident and Jones' bloated ego that this company came public
    before it was even an embryo ... a very rare opportunity for retail folks to get in on ground floor ..
    some folks have already made oodles here , but things haven't really started yet .
    Though I greatly respect Andrew , and he has stated that they are not interested in selling the company ,
    i have to believe that that has always been on the potential burner, depending on how things work out ..
    it could well turn out to be a company that can grow on it's own ... enjoy the weekend , we sail
    Monday morn 09:45 ..

    when a stock makes a large move , absent any news or data , it usually emits an odor ...
    er is too far out for a run expecting upside surprises , so it's just a game of badminton ....
    aside from conjecture , there really isn't much to legitimately move this issue ..
