Good to hear from you rogere. Yes...the Reagan years were really kind of silly. Reagan went into Grenada to "liberate" the American students at a university there. In other words, Reagan ignored sovereign borders and sent the military in, and the right wingers loved it. They just don't understand hypocrisy. Khrushchev actually donated Crimea to Ukraine, or it would be Russian anyway. Certainly, the government in charge in Kiev isn't in charge by a mandate and vote of the citizens of Ukraine. It was a violent uprising funded to a certain extent by American government and American private industry. I think a former ebay founder sent a million bucks to fund the dissidents. The sad thing is the nearly the first thing the new govt. did was to ban the Russian language as the official language. Of course you upset people like that. Russia likes to control Ukraine, because the natural gas pipelines to Europe run through Ukraine. It is a weird world we live in, but I hope Putin and Obama can keep cool heads. This isn't like Russia is invading Poland, Czechoslovakia, Romania, Hungary, Yugoslavia, etc. Putin likes to consolidate personal power, but like all humans, his days are limited, and his offspring aren't the next automatic leader as the Kim family is in North Korea.
Meanwhile, weather is good here in Hawaii.
This is dropping just like ANGYF. They are both under heavy shorting, and it looks like lots of downgrades during silent period when companies can say nothing. No real reason to be down this low, and expect those buying at these prices will be very very happy in a year's time.
What credibility are you talking about goldy? The Russians went into their former territory where ethnic Russians are a majority, and who were doing fine until two weeks ago when jihadist chechens and nationalist who live in the capitol in Kiev and immediately threatened the eithnic Russians in Crimea and demanding Russian language not be spoken. Did you support Ronald Reagan going into Grenada...a foreign country over a hand full of students? Russia has already received over 140K applications for political asylum from ethnic Russians living in Crimea. Remember, Crimea was given to Ukraine back in 1954 by Khruschev, but is heavily Russian. In fact, about half of the population of Ukraine are pro Russian. Many are not, and the #$%$ portion of nationalists and the Chechen's just want all Russians dead. It would be nice if the UN had gone in immediately and curbed the rioters in Kiev from putting in a few thugs and then ordering the Russian language banned. It doesn't look pretty, but you can take anything McCain says as nonsense, as he is still miffed that he lost Viet Nam. It is much like the junk about Russia going into and attacking Georgia, when it was the Georgians who attacked first. I can't blame Russia for wanting a buffer zone of RUssians in Crimea, as the further west you go, the more militant Muslim Chechen's and #$%$ nationals you encounter.
I was around for the Carter and Reagan years. Actually, I was around long before them, as I registered to vote in 1966 when 21 was required age. Carter INHERITED huge inflation. If you remember, Nixon and Ford wore WIN buttons. That stood for Whip Inflation Now. Individuals, regardless of party got all worked up into real estate investments and property was going up at a rampant pace. Nixon put price controls in. Paul Volker took over the Fed, and did what had to be done. Carter was the victim. He raised rates so high nobody could borrow and speculate anymore, and the economy slowed drastically. Prior to his raising rates (unlike Greenspan and Bernanke), inflation was rampant, and I was able to get a six month T bill paying 15% interest. The unfortunate thing was that the highest inflation rate was on the necessities..ie housing, automobiles, etc. Eventually, inflation stopped, and so did investment and the economy. Carter had no control. As with all economies, after several years, and a big drop in interest rates, the economy started improving and Reagan was the beneficiary of it. People forget, "conservative" Reagan raised the budget as gov. of Calif 250% in just 4 years. Just as conservatives are upset that Putin put troops in Crimea (60% of the population is ethnic Russian and the new illegal gov., in Kiev outlawed Russian as national language shortly after overthrowing the president), conservatives forget that Grenada was invaded by the US Army, because of a couple of hundred US citizens. Don't forget 140K applications for political asylum have been received by Russia by Crimean citizens terrified of what the radicals in Kiev will do to them for being Russian. That is their crime. I hope things get straightened out, as now the govt. in Kiev is trying to get jihadist Chechyns to help them rid Ukraine of Russians.
I think you may just be caught up in rogere's comment regarding a large percentage of teaparty folks being racist. A large percentage doesn't always half to be a high number if the item in question is unusual. In other words if I told you that a large percentage of people believed they saw aliens everyday and that actual % number turned out to be 15-20%, that is a large percentage of people considering reality and science, because probably only a handful of actual people do believe that. Now, from those I know that are staunch Tea Party people, from personal conversations, I would say that probably one out of five has made negative comments to me regarding races in the country. Some aren't as bold, but some are, and I would say that just 20% is a large percentage in my mind. I have met very few vocal Tea Party folks who although vocal about wanting to cut govt. spending, want to cut food stamps in the ghettos, but hardly ever mention white poor areas. They don't vocally come out to advocate cutting the food stamps to white West Virginia, but rather hardly ever mention those places as Compton, Watts, and Harlem are easier to bring up for them? Why is that?
Please...they all spend badly. Reagan closed all the public health hospitals and state mental institutions and sent incapable people out to sleep in business doorways. He spent loads of money on Lebanon, only to see the Marine barracks bombed by terrorists, whereby he quickly pulled out the Marines...Had Obama done such a thing, the right would have labelled him a traitor and coward. He loaded the coffers of Gen. Dynamics, Lockheed, and all the arms merchants. He traded arms for hostages to Iran. He conducted an illegal war in Nicaragua, and sleazeball Ollie North took the fall, only avoiding prison by a technicality. Face it...Ronald Reagan was an actor that made people feel good. No more, no less. He never caused the collapse of the Soviet Union, as the CIA had predicted the fall at the start of Carter's term. The former USSR got bankrupted by Afghanistan, trying to prop up Cuba, trying to subsidize their satellites in the former USSR and it all came down. Nobody would honor the ruble outside of the bloc. How good do you think the US would be if nobody would honor our currency? Ronald Reagan believed in subsidizing the private corporate sector with tax dollars paid by the middle class. Get over it. He did invade Grenada though if anyone can find that major threat country on a globe.
Although PDE would disagree most likely, I don't find the "partnership" with Saudi Arabian company news really too exciting. When you think about it, more than likely NNLX put this news out, as it is a big news item for them. Let's look at it overall though, $900K estimated sales for a full year is really what in the overall picture? There are about 119 million shares outstanding to make the market cap of 14.1 million dollars. Of course sales aren't profit but rather just revenues for sales of product. If it turned out to be a valid estimate, this $900K in sales would generate the eqivalent of about 3/4 of a penny per share in gross revenue for the full year? That is before any expenses. If you owned a $14 million dollar apartment complex, would you be happy to have rented it out for $900K for the year? That is only 6.4% GROSS return on your investment before making utility payments, property tax payments, mortgage payments, management fees, repairs, etc. etc. etc.
I would say NNLX is lucky if their cost to make product is 50% of what they receive when they sell it. I hope the CEO can begin to show some real numbers. They have been so few and far between, and even this estimate from sales generated by the Saudi company certainly don't look like they will put much of anything to revenue per share or especially profit per share. Am I missing something?
Wow....Petro...please tell us if this statement in the PR is "factual" as you claim?
"Simply alerted others to new factual information about the company released from YSU."
Yes...you alerted others to the information, and that is why I adressed you regarding the "alert" to which you posted and then claimed as factual. Are you just saying that because YSU made a statement it is factual, or are you just saying it is a "fact" that YSU made a statement?
There is a big difference, you know. What is a fact, however, and what you have failed to answer on many occasions, is why doesn't the CEO give out financial figures regularly like most shareholders would like. I have no problem with his desire to keep customers' identities confidential, but I don't need to know their identities, but I would like to know how much they are buying and what these figures amount total. After all, would you like to have part ownership in an apartment complex where the head of the complex refused to give out vacancy and rental income? It doesn't tend to build confidence.
Some quote from a previously near obscure company making a "projected" sales figure of $900K, is just what it says. "Projected." Is there a written contract with deposit money, or is this another "projected" hope from a company? Is the money in the bank? If not, I would value that PR as nothing....strictly an opinion from a third party with perhaps an interest in giving that information. Bret has failed to give sales figures for ages. He says he can't divulge who the customers are, and that is fine. It is about the money. Shareholders don't care who is buying, but they want to know how much is bought and the bottom line figures. Bret is fortunate to be CEO where he is and in a position whereby it is near if not impossible to fire him. Any other public company with this kind of reporting and failed deliveries would have axed their CEO long ago.
