Deek (my friend EZDeek, who goes by a legion of names) will be back if/when HTCH nosedives again. What a guy!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Deek, I miss you at FOUR. Don't let that LTF guy get you down, man. Buck up. You have fans.
I can empathize with Deek, despite the bombastic persona, the deep need he has to reinforce his own self worth and cover up his insecurity by venting his spleen on everyone. Underneath he's a player in the market like the rest of us--all dealers in uncertainty. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, often the win is less than we expected but more than we could have lost. He apparently will be getting less than he thought he might, but a gain nevertheless. At the very least he entertained us....and perhaps will continue to do that as long as you don't let what he says get you down.
So the risk here is that the Chinese buyer won't be considered serious enough to come up with the wherewithal? Why not? Who is it? What is this meeting supposed to be about? Any references to articles/news about this anyplace?
Then again, at this point back when, we missed the reports about tumbling PC sales. I've always believed looking at the underlying societal economics of any stock was the place to start. For instance, gold as a commodity is not a bad thing to be in as a general rule.
If I can get you attention LTF, what else are you getting into these days? Coal and paper I'm afraid don't have a lot going for them based on aforementioned societal economics. I'm still one among many who value your input on the 'buy' end.
Former Reddit CEO Ellen Pao:
"Balancing free expression with privacy and the protection of participants has always been a challenge for open-content platforms on the Internet. But that balancing act is getting harder. The trolls are winning."
Sad but true.
With stories like this one out there you begin to understand why ANR is dead. Just Google:
When the End of Human Civilization Is Your Day Job
And then there's "Laudato si."
There's probably a dead cat bounce left in this one for anyone brave enough to jump in.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Same happens to me. Gone right after I post. Yahoo must love the Deek....they give him lots of handles---he has more than a hardware store. Gotta love his shenanigans.
Purpose and focus don't come from some kind of mysterious character strength, but from facts in the real world. Like fact 1: RSO's dividend has been cut 20% this year. Fact 2: RSO has lost 38% of it's value over the last two years. Fact3: The beta here is .92. Whatever it's doing is happening very slowly and painfully. These are not good signs.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
