Your basis as expressed is baseless. If you followed something more than short-term charts, you would have seen that what VGR is doing now it has always done. You're one of 1000s who appear on these boards and make blanket statement, which lead one to believe you are all shorts.
Hard to say what they will do. I always thought management was very shareholder friendly. This would imply the possibility of a boost. On the other hand, their position now still appears tenuous. A modest raise is feasible in the short term. But, in the same way I don't see a return to the 20s happening, .50 also seems out of reach. At any rate, I continue to hold.
Well, it seems I have two possible paths to take: Fall back on my experience of having owned this stock for years, and observing its performance, or following a baseless assertion by someone who seemingly has nothing more than a troll's intelligence. Gee, which one should I choose?
VGR's narrow trading range allows just about anyone a chance to get in anytime. The pps is not subject to big variations. I think many of us here are in it for the for the cash div and the yearly stock split.
I believe you'll find that police do not see their role as "defending public places." The very nature of their participation means they will almost always arrive after the fact, unless an off-duty cop happens to be present. By the time they get there, the damage has already been done.
I'm beyond that, living on statins, blood thinners, beta blockers, and BP lowerers. And AWILCO's drop today does nothing to improve that.
Let's face it, tobacco and real estate are pretty disparate holdings. I wonder what the long range plan is. In analogous situations, Manitowok (food, heavy machinery) and Brown-Foreman (booze, kitchen, cabinets) spun off into two companies. Not saying VGR will follow suit.
Anyone around here have a clue as to what VGR's real estate strategy is? What are they looking to invest in? Perhaps they haven't found anything that fits their criteria at this time.
As I've said before, this stock is so thinly traded, 200 shares can make it move double digits. I don't think anything is to be inferred from the move Friday.
The job of those who write for MF, SA, The Street, etc, is to churn out articles; that is what they get paid for. The legitimacy of those articles is always questionable. My own view is that giving them credence is really no different than following some anonymous poster on a board saying "Sell all your GE today!"
Who said sell? Not in my plans, as I've said before. I'm holding in the hopes of some form of recovery. A jump in the div would be nice, but how?
A free market means intelligent and responsible people can be successful. This is anathema to the Dems, who want everyone to be dependent serfs of the government.
