don't you love conventional wisdom ?? i worked at IBM for 32 years ... most of the time i was 100% in
Big Blue , then they cut me lose and i maintained ... 4 months ago i finally got out all together , but
it was a very ride for a long time ..
I would , however , recommend thinking about reducing your BMY to about 75% .. not at once ,
but sell a few chunks on rallies like this and park the quid in a higher div company that is
growing it's div ... a lot depends on your age , current income tho' .. garce
on topic will still be very few today ... even though the stock is up about 15% in the past 2 weeks and is
trading very strong out of the gate this morning ..
quite a statement on how idiotic our culture is becoming ... eh ?? garce
yes , 376 .. it was a dump 20 yrs ago , but a damned comfortable place for a few guys
to enjoy a few beers ... fortunately , i found a similar place over here on UC7 ... they
even let the dogs in ... just good times , lotsa beer and bar dice ...
bill , you may have missed the turn for Limn Kiln Rd and wound up in Hopewell Junction ... there's a nice
road house out there at the intersection of 176 .. have a few and shoot some darts ...
scammy , you are not watching ... 2 pr's in the last month and each has moved the stock price nicely ..
now they have the formula ... how are the salamanders doing under that rock that you live under ?
the value here , lies in the fact that the PR got you to post ..
we've missed you since 1.86 ..
without your posts , we have to antagonist and would not qualify for a Greek tragedy ... now we have
our balance back ...
mercy ... the NY Giants did extremely well on their bye week ... PHilly and Dallas both clocked , things
sounds like we are still a ways off from any actual production products ? did i mention that we are still
an R&D company and what a long haul the development game is ...
in spite of all of the missteps that you mentioned , IBM has made how many hundreds of billions of dollars ?
not only that , your list is very short ...
Way back when , IBM actually made a few prototype solid state watches .. then decided that it would be
a consumer product with little upside .. hah !!!
IBM never got into hand held calculators .. another big market missed ...
the list is very long ... but , something worked ...
currently , IBM is faced with it;'s biggest challenge and i believe that at least part of a solution for them
to get traction again is to split up , at least spin out a few wholly owned subsidiaries that will be allowed
to function independantly ... g
in the long run , not much .. we'll all be dead .. g
just enjoy some cheap gas and heat your home without borrowing this winter .. g
there is no doubt about the oceans rising , but that could be more from what mankind has
dumped into them, that was originally on land .. it's called displacement .. whatever mass you put
into a container of water , the water level will rise by a proportionate amount ...
yeah ,, digital thermometers .. the world was just fine for centuries with a nice
mercury filled thermometer and numbers on a stick ... same for barameters .. .
Before you know it , Facebook will own temperature , then waddayagonnado ?
nice price action with volume to back it up !! if you are planning on an exit , why not sell some covered calls
at first , then let'em get called away ...
then what happens if pennystockadvisor is correct ? LOL .. for glory's sake , i see that same #$%$
posted all over the place ..how can a $100 stock be a penny stock?
again , i reiterate ... even though i believe that man's contribution to global warming or cooling
pales by comparison to what nature does , we can no longer claim ignorance , burning
coal is not good and also emissions from hydrocarbon burning are not good and we will
lose nothing by finding better methods and alternatives ..
as for vehicles ,... to bad that steam lost out to the internal combustion engine over 100 years
ago .. external burning of anything is far more complete than internal combustion and
internal combustion also creates of host of other chemical structures that are not good .
Coal , for a small cost can used as a source of relatively clean burning liquids , instead
of just burning it by itself ..
there are solutions for us to do much better than we have been doing .. garce
they had a great show on about a month ago, explaining how the Earth itself makes changes to affect
out of balance situations with regard to temps and gas %'s in the atmosphere and what we are currently
seeing is yet another cycle ...g
Still , it behooves the world to control pollution and look for better solutions ..
Two things bother me far more than the "greenhouse gases" .....
1) improper disposal of unused medications and also many that are used , but wind up in waste systems ...
various parts of the world have noted grotesque mutations with many kinds of aquatic life.
2) Use of fertilizers , which find their way into most of the potable water sources that we have ... farmers and
golf courses ... garce
