The blatant idiot you are, friend of Barbier or not, have you ever heardof the boy that called wolf too many times?
As it is, that scoundrel, Putin, has shown better morel fiber than our own judges. When it comes to take other peoples property.
We have reached a sorry point, that fools or crooks like you, that prey on defenseless retirees, like your friend Barbier, are given the floor with impunity, should be telling.
Wpd you r right Obama's drive to crush Putin, is creating mayor dislocations in raw materials and thereby playing into the left in S. America. Funny enough that it is showing just like the adventure of Barbier maligning BP. It is a bad idea for the courts or bureaucrats to pick winners. The law of unintended consequences.
Welcome to American law. If you have the pockets we will find the way.
What people do not understand is that the question in front of us is: should the run away bureaucrats be empowered to run business.
If this run away judiciary can impound and actually take down BP or hand it over to their cronies, the losers is the community at large.
Just look at how well they run the regulatory world.
Out of thousands of wells BP blows one and is gross negligent in a field where there are no replications, no precedents, no clear guidelines.
I am sure that the doj or Barbier will be much safer drilling wells of that nature.
Short of being the force behind the shake down, the other oil majors should close ranks with BP and help fight the gross over reach lest they be next in line.
If you have no faith in the management of a co. simply do not invest in it.
As it is, for all the calls to buy back shares, it would have been wrong if the reality says that we are being manipulated. In that instance, then the right move was to sit in the sidelines with ready cash to inflict as much damage to the shorts as it is possible. It takes patience, but it pays well.
Unfortunately, the same regulators that look the other way, will likely enforce rules about buying your shares back in certain periods. I guess they call it the level playing field.
you hit the sore spot. These guys forget that leverage works both ways. When you hit the monkey it feels great, but when the monkey hits you, then it is no fun
Under present rules, It will take you 83 years to wash it off your income taxes.
When I was advised by a good friend to stay put in the mortgage crisis, that was my only consolation. The do nothing Gov was also going to take a loss, little as it was.
My biggest sore is in a retirement account so no loss recognition for me.
You hit it in the head.
It is all about margin. speculators should have no margin extended to them.
How can you sell it if you do not own it.
The answer to your questions is simple, the afforded impunity allows "big money" to do it so they do.
The maze is complicated but in place. Carried interest, volatility, and concerted action as they know when the orchestrated bottom is. So they harvest the stop loss orders, create a little panic, and watch an re do as applicable. The playing field is favorable as all the dogs are tied.
The only sitting ducks left are the fools that save and are in the stock market as it is the only place were we had some returns. To add insult to injury, all the regulators are interested in, is to fine the common stockholders after they look the other way while some unethical management got themselves some bonuses, for pilfering the company by multiple venues. I do not believe EMR is part of this last comment, but a convenient innocent by stander. It has however some gains that expose them to the orchestrated stop loss harvesting.
we all know.
The trouble is that the regulators have no interest in concerted attacks sheltered by the secrecy afforded to colluded institutional players acting as hedge funds.
It is so moronic that children could se the wrong yet it has become accepted practice.
Would you attend an auction where the other guys are, all acting together? If you could, would you tolerate that your assets be auctioned off when all the buyers are concerted.? Then add HFT.
.EMR has been a long term holding for me. In fact I bought several hundred more shares at 63 and change in one of my retirement accounts so there they sit as sitting ducks for these illegitimate counter parts to take advantage off. On my cash accounts, I have such a favorable position that is hard to see this pirates be able to threaten my cost.
However the feeling that you are being manipulated by sacred cows does not sit well at least with me.
Go no further than the mortgage crisis.
They are just mind less hired guns with no ethics or competence.
Funny enough that the same government that should have conducted supervisory activities and developed the regulatory frame work is itself immune for its own shortcomings and of the impact on the public from those that should have been regulated.
Not only that, but those that failed the regulatory purpose are not prosecuted. Only the victims of the same shortcomings. The passive shareholders.
So in plain english, a collateral victim that happens to have something left is the only guilty party in american jurisprudence. It is almost as if it was a crime to save and invest in American and International companies that happen to conduct business here.
I disagree a tad with you. The value of efficiency goes up as the margins contract.
Then I agree that we might see lower prices and have just like you have some dry powder for the occasion.
It is however disgusting when governments manipulate markets for political reasons and hate to have to aide their interest to protect mine.
Since you r so bent into the wild possibilities, what do you think would happen to BP stock price if all of the sudden your buddy Barbier was caught with his pants down like the other zealot, I think his name was spit or spitter something like that, he use to terrorize banks from his pulpit as AT at some town.
What would it be, 3 or 4 fold up?
Why spend any money that will go to the very mafia that is bent on hurting you?
By the way, I for one do think the public does look into Yahoo MB as it is the only untainted source of opinion.
I complained to Mazda for having put TomTom in my new cx5. They told me they have connect instead now on their navigation set up. Who are they?
Unless the ridiculous p/e is in error, it is a dead give away.
WS still treats NOK as if it was in BK mode.
It is an easy double to a normal p/e for tech co.
Got news for you.
The last time I liked a co. As I like NOK today, it was apple twenty years ago.
Being poor at the time I made the mistake of selling the stock and kept the computers.
Full circle apple has betrayed the perception as is just another bean counting outfit. NOK still has not changed my perception.
In fact when I see the new mercenaries attack, my commitment to NOK gets reinforced.
Dam the torpedoes.
Funny enough the last time I felt this way was just before the MSFT rip off.
Then again, it may very well be that NOK survived thanks to the ambush.
