They do show up. You're not looking in the right place and doing the math.
Apparently you can't comprehend what you are reading or crunch the numbers.
One example? No problem. Cisco.
Sheezus. At least do the simplest of research and read a 10-Q or 10-K. You can see it in there. I'm not going to hold your hand and walk you through the filing while spoon-feeding you the information and doing the math for you.
And I don't need to repeat babble on any message board. Working in Finance for one of the largest and most powerful companies on the planet and having numerous contacts at many companies is where I get most of my info. And you?
It would only be a great opportunity for the shareholders if the shares were taken permanently off the market and burnt. I have yet to see a company that is doing this. Every company I've seen is buying back shares, sticking them in their treasury ledger and then later re-distributing them back out as compensation to the high-level employees as a form of compensation. The shareholder is just getting re-diluted. Not sure how this is a "great opportunity" as you have described.
Bottom line.....this is just an EPS shuffle game.
Fake trader troll? I've had the dude on ignore for days. He reminds of that one guy "spx_trader" that used to haunt these boards about 10 years ago. Always bragged about gains in trading but never posted a real time trade.
while just about everyone is managing to beat their lowered guidance, you guys couldn't even do that right. bwahahahahahah!
I'll tell you right now....here in Silicon Valley a lot of companies are struggling to meet their guidance if it hasn't been lowered. INTC had to perform some financial engineering to get their tax rate lower just so they could meet lowered guidance.
Gonzaga (in the bracket I had Iowa St winning this one)
Don't go off tangent and alter the subject on the argument you originally positioned. Your point of contention was in regards to the US gov't -- not a business. Unlike a real business, the US gov't doesn't have to have a self-sustaining budget (as it can issue debt and print it's own currency, as evidenced over the last thirty years). The GOP will attest to this as they currently do with their fiscal philosophy.
Don't bother responding back. You have demonstrated that you can't stick to your argument and you know next to nothing about finance.
You can have and follow a budget and it can be unbalanced. Being unbalanced doesn't mean you're not following a budget. It just means your budget (expenses) is not aligned with your revenue.
TLT? Bwahahahahahah! I can never figure that thing out. There are days when it seems like it should be up but it's down and vice-versa. And then the damned thing will turn when least expected. It does provide some good plays though. Xb has been holding that for close to two weeks and he's making some good coin with it.
Yep. Saw something that appears to be at least putting in a floor several minutes ago. Seeing that I went long the Q $107 calls (4/17) at $1.70. Let's see if it holds. With the past few down days I do see a short lived bounce here.
Good call, fletch. I used that last EOD drop down to unload those Q puts and TLT calls I bought last week for some nice gains. Completely flat now. We'll see what tomorrow brings. If it's a slow grind down and it looks like it might turn upward for a bounce, I might ride it. I still think the trend is down currently, but a bounce may be coming now which might give a good opportunity to re-deploy some short positions.
I don't think it's done consolidating. Wouldn't be surprised if we saw 106.50 before 110.
That was cool when heystan would set up the CBS page for us. And where is butters? Where the faq did butters go???
Final Four: Kentucky, Arizona, Oklahoma and Duke. Kentucky beats Duke for the title.
I also have Dayton beating Providence and SF Austin going to the Sweet 16.
Upsets: Valparaiso beats Maryland; Wofford beats Arkansas; Ole Miss beats Xavier; Wyoming beats UNI; Davidson beats Iowa; Wichita State beating Kansas (in the second round); Iowa St beating Gonzaga and L'ville over Villanova in the Sweet 16.
Where else is there to go when the dollar is gaining strength? Anyone going long equities now is absolutely insane. I still have my puts from late yesterday afternoon and picked up some TLT $132 calls this morning @ $1.71 a piece. That thing is very volatile today but I expect it to pay off early next week if not tomorrow.
I agree pandy. It's just further proof to me that the Fed is completely stuck and has no clue what to do about it.
