I'll drink to that. In moderation, of course.
From the wallisweaver Investing for Dummies book: Intel down but not as much as ARMH. No, wait a minute, I got that backwards.
wdblawgrow--I think I just saw the board's Pinhead in Chief poking his head out of his own woodshed. He doesn't get off work for another hour or so until after he dumps the waste baskets, but get ready for the spin on the Wall Street conspiracy and how Intel was down but ARMH was down more.
From the wallisweaver school of investment logic: Intel down today, but not as much as ARM . . .Oops, ARM is up today. Dang! Okay, Intel down today, but not as much as Altera. No, wait a minute. Bad example. Give me a minute here and I'll think of something. Here it is: I bought Intel today, but the price went down, which opens up another buying opportunity. Now I've got it!
angstromatic--You will notice that while wallisweaver is critical of your posts on this topic, his posts are "content free." He badly wants to play with the big boys, but can't do more than cut and paste. He's no more than an attention-seeker and his greatest reward is negative attention.
history--You say that neither the market nor this board care about the Royalty rule as it relates to BTU. Why, then, would the Company go out of its way to explain why BTU is not affected? Looks like somebody cared.
In a note to analysts today, BTU said that the royalty changes were no big deal for BTU. More specifically, the company said news articles have overstated the potential effects of the royalty changes for coal mined on federal lands, with most of the changes related to exports. In addition, the company said PRB coal production is sold to end use customers for domestic generation purposes and would not be affected by the rule. Finally, the company said there would have been little financial impact on BTU if the rule had been in effect in recent years because only a small amount of coal exported was from federal lands.
I was looking at the 100-day SMA on the 5-year chart. On the 1-year it looks like the next support level is about $28, and then $26.
Average low PE for the past five years is 10. Average high PE over the same period is 12. With estimated 2015 earnings of $2.15 and a current stock price of ~$30, the current PE is 14. Analysts have been ratcheting down their earnings estimates over the past several weeks, based I am sure on the company's reduced revenue forecast. With history as a guide, an average low PE of 10 suggests a drop in the share price to the low $20s is a real possibility. Now that would be a REAL buying opportunity.
billy--wallisweaver is way out of his league when it comes to discussing Intel. Trying to bait posters with irrelevant topics is all he has left.
intoodeep99--wallisweaver doesn't have anyone on ignore. He craves attention, but is incapable of entering into civil debate on the merits of Intel versus the competition, so he taunts on controversial subjects such as global warming and politics. Bottom line: wallisweaver is the classic underachiever. He has never had any social skills. He promotes himself as a consultant, but has no clients. So he gets a part-time job during tax season in some remote town where he doesn't have to interact with others. He watches TV and posts thousands of times on this board. That's all he has.
After checking various websites (including Apple and Intel) I am blown away by the innovation we can expect from the upcoming offerings:
1. They will tell you what time it is--very accurately.
2. They will tell you if you are alive, i.e. if you have a pulse.
3. They will tell you if you have a phone message or text by poking you on the wrist so you can pull out your Smart phone to reply. (According to Apple, the watch is not a stand alone product, but a "companion" to your Smart phone.)
4. Will contain apps yet to be announced. Angry Birds? The New York Times?
And all of this on a 1.5 x 1.5 inch screen starting at $350 (Apple). Wonder if we will see shirt manufacturers running ads promoting shirt cuffs that are designed for various makes, models and sizes?
EPA working on controlling backyard BBQ emissions and how long we should be allowed to stay in the shower. Expect an executive order soon.
