Once again that darn landscape unfolded differently. In order for your "predictive" powers to work right, you have to have many comments posted suggesting both positive moves AND negative moves... then you bump the ones that turn out to be right. That's the ONLY way your predictive powers turn out to be right. At least, right more than the odds of chance.
You included no technical analysis in your post. Using the term "cup and handle" hardly qualifies. One could say "spikey up and spikey down". If you haven't heard of that term then maybe you should study some more. Just my opinion.
If Mr. Son is taking this kind of position I suppose that USA attorneys will climb all over Softbank for misleading statements. Funny thing about making statements that mislead investors... attorneys have a lot of fun with them at company (share holder) expense!
Yes but you need to wait for the landscape to unfold before making predictions as to stock price direction. Wait, I see that you didn't make any stock price direction prediction. Wise person. Just use innuendo and make comments in both directions so you can bump the ones that happen to correlate with the actual stock price direction.
...and yet here you are on a Sunday evening calling names. That's just unprofessional dude.
I don't think any of those three companies would be interested in Groupon. If any company would want Groupon, it would seem to me it would have to be a company like Priceline. The Groupon business would fit with their other product lines better than with any of the three originally mentioned. Just IMO.
It is too late for help for Arnold. Maybe heavy medication and years of visits to shrinks. You never know what modern medicine might be able to accomplish.
Why not drop them from the sky and see what they hit? Come on man... you have to be more creative than saying they can be thrown like Frisbees.
... Now T-Mobile deal is off the table and Sprint is down from $8.60 four weeks ago to around $5.60 now. That's a 35% drop in four weeks even after announcing the first quarterly profit in six years. The 35% drop is nearly $10B lost. Why doesn't Softbank simply put it's money into buying the rest of Sprint? The price just got a lot cheaper. There must be some reason why SB stopped at 80%. But the markets are saying that something is ripe to happen to that other 20%.
There is a similar saying that goes "If you do not enter the tiger's cave, you won't be fed to the cub."
That's roughly $600 million drop in market cap on $7.3 million in trades. Softbank owns 80% so it had a loss of $480 million so far today. Why doesn't it just buy the rest of Sprint and get away from the whims of stock traders/manipulators?
Kind of adds up to someone already knowing that the news will be a beat. The only question is by how much?
