Heard a report that there were people, not sure who they were, who were trying to steal gas and set up their own line. How stupid can you be? Still two people missing and the street is closed. Three of the four buildings involved collapsed and one is still closed by the FDNY. What a great bunch of guys, heroes. Also brave neighbors helped people out of their apts, down fire escapes. The Village is a mess with nearby businesses closed or nearly closed. Its going to take a long time to heal.
The Mayor and the Head of Con Ed are giving a news conference and according to them, Con Ed was called to the building at 2PM to inspect the site of an additional gas meter for a yet to be built new gas line but it did not pass inspection. But had there been a gas leak at that time, the inspectors should have smelled it and they did not. Presumably the contractors people were part of the 12 people injured in the blast. The police and fire department should get to the facts and release them as soon as possible.
And you own it the day you buy it, not the date it settles. And normally your broker requires that you have money in your account to cover any purchases before they allow you to consummate a sale unless you are qualified for margin in which event you are borrowing the money to cover the purchase. Very tempting to do at todays low rates but usually a fools errand. Don't bother.
NO, NO, NO, Listen, You MUST own a stock ONE DAY BEFORE its X Div date to qualify for the Dividend. If the XDate is March 12, then you must own it at close of business on March 11. XDiv means the stock trades without the Div. So you must qualify as an owner before that event. Got it?
Not really, you got it backwards. Just listened to an interview with Meg Whitman who said PC sales were great. It was printers that hurt them and Japanese competition. The dollar is way up vs the Yen so the price of Japanese printers is hurting them badly. Get your facts straight.
Same Social Justice language they are pushing everywhere else. They might be dangerous if they believed one Orwellian word of it.
That said, terrific qtr., kudos to DTE.
and get it fast. You might still be able to roll your traditional IRA into a Roth by paying the taxes due but this is an option that the WH is talking about doing away with.

No idea if this is for real but no thanks.
