John 1:1 says nothing about people seeing Jesus alive...the most common translation is:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Buffet won't pay a dividend because he paternalistically believe he knows how to handle the money better than his shareholders. Notice he never complains that companies he's invested in pays divs.
At my store, which has four locations in the area, B & G enjoys no real visibility; its products sit on the shelves with its competitors.
Over 2013 I more than doubled my position in BGS, so I am optimistic about the future. But as I have said, I am very long. I am also up nicely over my cost basis. As for even 42, BGS WILL have to show significant gain for that to happen. Wenner going on Cramer's show and talking won't be enough.
Of course it's a promo and spam. You've posted this on just about every board on Yahoo. How much were you paid?
Put quite simply, F is one of the most unloved stocks I've ever seen. Despite the fact it has paid off debt, had great sales, got its logo back, is producing great cars, and has a modest div., it drops like a rock and goes up like a snail. Meanwhile, the scam of TSLA, with next to no sales, no earnings, a terrible P/E, and a candidate for bankruptcy in the next couple of years, has a 3-digit pps.
But I'm 3-5 years long, so day to day results don't concern me that much. Traders can do what they want, investors can sit tight and watch an inexrable rise in the share price over time.
I hate to agree, since it's my largest position, but it continually goes up a few cents on good news, and drops like a rock on bad news. I was a lot more optimistic a while back, but now see maybe $20 by 12/3/2014.
No one would like to see 45 more than I, but let's be real, a buyout price would be 22-23.
I'm showing F closing 12/31/2012 at 12.96. So it's up about 2.40 for the year, or about 18.5%. Not huge, but not bad. For an absolutely unloved stock, it's still going forward. Next year could be much better.
