the $15 min wage is a media hype non-story - nobody is championing it except some venture capitalist, who is getting incredible coverage because it drives people like you to distraction. Turn off fox, chill out and enjoy the holidays without aggravating everyone around the tree with your endless prattle about the progressives ruining the world
the tax issue is related to the expiration of accelerated depreciation options at end of 2013. The company has indicated lower interest expense, rationalization opportunities and reduced capex will offset the tax increase in 2014. Last year congress extended the accelerated depreciation and may do so again but most likely only for an addtional year (as this allows them to extort - whoops sorry request donations - from biz effected by this type of annually expiring deduction)
Huh? what growth. Story for WIN is can they reduce capex enough to overcome continual declining revenues and if the investments in broadband, fiber to tower and call centers can minimize the declining landline revenues. To date they have not been able to offset the landline declines but they have been able to shore up the dividend payout ratio by reducing capex - now will that reduced capex eventually lead to more dramatically declining revenues is the question
Ok two, you have to tell us your secret, you were right. It was up, down and even at some point today
upon original announce the market valued the combined company at about $12B (235.2 line shares out + 68.1 new shares to be issued to BRY x $40/share). So now the target should be $37 a share $12B / (235.2 Line shares + 91.6 million new shares for BRY) or 12.0B/326.8M. while oil is down a bit since Feb the global picture is a quite a bit more promising now so I think that is all a wash
Wow this must really be serious, oh wait, no he's just another #$%$ ambulance chaser that provides no benefit to society trying to extort a few dollars out of one of our leading companies. Or maybe its a straight payment to get a salacious headline like that written to give the shorts a little cover to escape this bad trade. Go figure he's from Louisiana. Now maybe the SEC should discontinue its 5 month investigation into whether LINE properly reconciled their non-GAAP disclosures to GAAP and figure out if there is any market manipulation going on around this stock by the shorts
I swear I was ready to proclaim you a genious stock picker - so you going to post you know nothing?
ok you said guaranteed, so that usually means you do something if you're wrong. How about posting tomorrow, I anhtexas don't know squat about stock if your wrong. Is that open red or close red?
1) I love this new yahoo format where you can't tell who is replying to what 2) Jack, like i said this has nothing to do with the stock price, CLEARLY they will get participants - it was just a thought I had 3)bfs - there are no tigers in africa
brilliant reply Jack, quite original, I've never seen that mom stuff before, did it take you 11 hrs to come up with that? marginally better, primarily better because you are more likely to take all the required shots right jack?
1) there is a very effective alternative, it just takes one more shot (I had them before my last trip to africa)
2) the safety has been questioned by the EU and the FDA - conspiracy theory this all you want, the FDA has determined there is not enough evidence to prove the stuff is safe yet
I really thought this was a fairly innocuous comment. basically I think only a moron would let someone inject an unproven, non-essential substance into your arm. But apparently, there are plenty of morons in this world (thanks for the affirmation)
I kind of doubt the FDA can explain to me why someone would subject themselves to an unproven vax test. this is not a bearish post, I'm not trying to say they won't find participants, I'm saying who is it that puts themselves on the line for an unproven vax, when a reasonable alternative exists - again these folks aren't trying to be cured. would any of you stick your arm out to be a test subject? I wouldn't
go look at the financials yourself, the payout ratio has dropped to 65% for 2013, they have pleny of coverage for the divy this year and it would appear for 2014 as well
when you sprout a 3rd eye I'm thinking all that seems pretty trivial. Again there is a vaccine that works pretty good - this is not a bash, clearly new vax are tested all the time but I would need a pretty decent check to do this kind of test
so we are hoping for a takeover bid? What will happen that could change this stock before the end of 2014 to mid 2015 (I assume that the results will come out around that time)
