Actually, I was more interested in its intraday performance. Today it stayed up.20 until the last couple of minutes, then dropped to up .01, on next to no shares.
This is one of the few Yahoo boards which actually concentrates on the company, not mindless political drivel and spam like yours. So go away.
F posts great results and it drops. It posts bad results and it drops. The pps is run by the shorts and their friends the market managers. One of a number of stocks which are manipulated, while the SEC sits on its thumb.
F is part of a group of stocks that go down whether they report good or bad news. BA is another. It's heavily manipulated. If you are as long as I am, you just grit your teeth. I remember when it dropped to 1.00.
It is the history of VGR that is the likely guide to its future. Great dive, 5% stock increase each Sept, and pretty good pps.
Over the years, people here have speculated that VGR will acquire the rest of Elliman, spin it off as a REIT, and let the tobacco business survive on its own. While I am long term VGR, and by that I mean kids will likely inherit it, I have always thought that I will never live to see that.
I am already sitting with a huge bundle of shares which, of course, means I've taken a huge hit over the last 15 months. I cringe at my cost basis. The div helps somewhat.
Don't know to what extent the enormous drop has been due to the weakness of the company or that of the sector. Will have to see what the div is for Q1, if there I one. I have gotten shellacked on this position.
GM proved that screwing the taxpayer in cahoots with the government, and killing them off with faulty ignitions, can be profitable.
The purpose of analysts is to serve their company. They downgrade when the company wants to buy, and upgrade when it wants to sell. It's disheartening that so many lemmings act on their nonsense.
Same old same old. Good news, it goes down. Bad news, it goes down. F is one of the most manipulated stocks in the market. They could raise the div to a dollar and it would still drop.
Cramer is an entertainer, with his sound effects and shouting. He is no more successful than anyone else. He habitually recommends stocks he owns over others in the same sector. His lemmings hang on his every word because they are too lazy to do their own due diligence.
Same old, same old. They want to buy MMM, so they get a #$%$ analyst to down grade. Same just happened to BA. And, all the brain dead lemmings immediately sell.
Of course, it works the other way. Some joker at GS upgraded TSLA with a price target of 750, based on a technology that doesn't even exist. And all the brain-dead lemming sent the pps up.
