You're partly right....by accident. Most of the 200,000 jobs - - assuming the books weren't cooked again - - were part-time and seasonal. Such as being a Santa Claus for three weeks, four hours a day.
No sane businessman is going to hire full-time employees right now. Because of the hot mess that is Obozocare.....
And how many of these new Medicaid enrollees submitted fraudulent financial information? We'll never know because nobody's checking. It's just like food stamps. Or the earned income tax credit. Just submit your claim; the IRS will send you the boodle, no questions asked. Open season, come and get it. While the dwindling number of taxpayers has to pull harder just to stay even. Say hello to Greece Redux.
In 2012 FE was at $50.00 and in May of this year it was still at $45.00.
Why didn't you sell then? I guess you were happy with management at the time?
It's not really a public utility. It produces power and sells it to public utilities.
Good luck on fishing the bottom.
Perhaps because you don't provide anything but your own speculation?
You've been talking up WMK for months and it comes in with comparable store sales DOWN 2.3% year-over-year?
Again, just give me an explanation why Ingles would want that? If you back it up with facts and sound reasoning, I might believe it. Give it a shot.
Earnings were announced three days after you posted. They were not exactly stellar.
Please tell us why Ingles would want to acquire a supermarket chain that just reported DECLINING sales?
The whole east coast? Really? So Kroger, Safeway, Wegmann, Piggly-Wiggly, Ukrop, Giant, Publix, Whole Foods and all the others would just go away?
Whispering has been saying for months that the acquirer would be Ingles Markets, based in Ashville, NC. This would be totally out of character for Ingles, which has shown no inclination to expand beyond its current market area in the Carolinas and Georgia. It's also about equal in size to WMK and would have to go into huge debt to do the deal. Makes no sense.
Yet, Ingles is way down today while WMK is up. Who knows?
fallenIQ, you have solved the world's problems. All governments should just print more money at an ever-increasing rate. Prosperity for everyone! We could also raise the minimum wage to $100 an hour.
You're a cinch to win the Nobel Peanut Prize!
