Recent Bloom be etc article - The payout was structured to prevent Vodafone from ending up with a large stake in Verizon, two people familiar with the terms said, who asked not to be named discussing confidential deliberations. That forces Vodafone investors who’d prefer cash, or aren’t authorized to hold Verizon stock, to sell the shares they receive, potentially weighing on the price and cutting their reward’s value.
“I’m not allowed to have American equities in my fund,” said Peter Braendle, a fund manager in charge of European equities, including Vodafone shares, for Swisscanto Asset Management in Zurich. “I’d have to sell them, and I would fear that quite a few people would have to do the same. It would cause some pressure on the price.”
About 60 percent of Vodafone’s investors are outside the U.S., according to data compiled by Bloomberg. More than half are in Europe. While no law prevents European investors from holding shares of U.S. companies, it is common for funds to be mandated to hold shares only from a certain country or region.
As I have stated a few tines and it seems when I do you seem to vanish, BUT...in the short term the s/p will Retreat down towards 45 due to the VOD shareholders having to sell their VZ shares. Not all will have to sell, but a large percentage of the shares issued(new) will be sold and the shear volume of shares flooding the exchange will drive the s/p down. If you have any doubts or questions then ask Lowell McAdams whose on record stating the VOD deal would have a short term pressure on the VZ price.
No...I'm giving my take based on some Finacial data and it's you whose shooting his mouth off and can't add anything of value to any conversation. Simple take away with you is if anyone discusses s/p decline even for valid reasons you simply insult the individual. You never have anything to say in defense of your baseless position and I find you to he quite useless and boring. I stand by my original post of a 8% s/p decline by beginning of 2014. I guess we can wait to see who's correct.
I'm sorry Don. Do I need to use crayons for you to be able to read? Or are you just the idiot everyone on here thinks you are? If you have something of substance to add please feel free, but otherwise keep your broken record of a mouth closed.
What will the s/p be on Jan 13th? I want to purchase a large block of shares,but would like to do it at .04 or lower. What sort of run up could we have before the SPA closes?
Don...as usual you don't have anything of value to add, but you add your slanted two cents anyway. If you are going to pump VZ and excuse every mis-step they take at least have something of value to add to the conversation. There are enough "political" postings on this board which have nothing to do with VZ and I suggest you post on one of them.
garce it's not anywhere outside VZ's competencies. This was handled by the Terramark wing of VZ and was one of the items they are known for! The trouble may be that Terramark wasn't the great investment VZ thought. I agree in the end it may be a good thing to have this project moved to HP, but this will be a black eye for the current leadership at VZ for a while. The ACA isn't going away and people will continually refer to VZ's ineptitude as the reason it initially failed rightly so or not. Lastly, when the ACA site gets better marks in a year then the conversation will be partly how HP had to bail VZ's "cloud" and engineers.
Looks like they added the $1,044,500 in cash for the SUN purchase during the Sept quarter. Wonder why it doesn't show in the quarter when the SPA actually closes? Why show the additional debt load for an additional quarter? Wouldn't these figures in an income statement tend tovscare off prospective investors?
I emailed their editor after continual screw ups in the SLTD background info provided. Looks like in the latest news issue they finally have it updated.
Mark...it's funny though because I have already seen two negative posters on two different message boards FLIP to pumpers. I guess they realized it wasn't going to do much good in a short position at the pace this has moved. Good news abounds!
I'm sure the computers and network that VZ and Terramark help support (which trade in increments less than seconds) would tend to disagree with you. My strategy should net me about 200 additional shares and a cool $100 added to my divi payout. Oh, and what would a Skins fan know?
How soon do you think we will hit $1 and at that point what market do you think SLTD will be listed on, the Dow, NASDAQ or S&P? I'm thinking NASDAQ.
Eddy...I'm talking about the usual run-up before ex-div when people try to get in asa VZ holder of record to receive the divi.
Any American manufacturers? The others are Chinese. I own shares in two, but I don't think it will help those shares too much besides payment received for manufacturing. The most likely scenario to me of the 3 is YGE. Trina is in better shape, but Yingli looks to grow quickly back into prominence and could really catapult themselves back to the top if they could liscense the technology from SLTD.
