If they voted for the GOP without the interference of the white house to date, unemployment would be 4.5% instead of a false reading off 7%. (14% more like it).
4.5% is zero unemployment. Why because 4.5% of the population won't look for a job, ever, as long as uncle smooch continues to pay them more than $11 an hour to stay home,and get them to vote for the party that gives the most freebies. Think free phones.
Think Detroit for just one minute. Think about the airlines.
Trying to get more blood from the company puts everyone in Peril.
Last but not least, if you have contributed to your retirement funds you are a stock holder as well as millions of others including myself. We are all owners of this company.
The future of the company is what we all wan't.
We will not stand to have the company, years from now, looking for government handouts to stay afloat due to stupid decisions to appease a few thousand employees who hold a gun to the head of BA.
SE here we come!!!
Lack of jobs? Sure. Why would a company in their right minds hire people knowing they may have to provide unemployment insurance for more than a couple years if they are laid off?
Just like some European countries that demand years of support after a layoff, they have the highest unemployment in the world.
Your own government is contributing to our unemployment rate by tying the hands of employers to regulations, taxes and health care.
THINK ABOUT IT!!
Stop crying and take BA's offer or sit on the sidelines while BA goes to greener pastures without you.
Your union leaders are selling you out.
By 2016 a new assembly line for the 777X will be in the East.
This new plane will end up cutting jobs in the NW since the 777 will be gone. A new horizon has begun and the Union members will be at a loss for new jobs and UNION MEMBERSHIP.
It's because the stock is too cheep!!
At this point they need to say goodby to Mulally.
He is either in or he is out.
If he has still not made up his mind who he want's to stay with, then the board needs to let him go.
Yes, the stock may go down for a few days, weeks or months, but in the long run FORD is very much a winner with great management in the wings.
Mulally has done a great job. I don't think at the time of his hire that there was anyone who could have pulled this company together like he did.
Why? Because it's Union leadership thought it could get more blood from the company.
Companies refused to put themselves in a position of losing money. So what happened? They closed their doors, went bankrupt or moved. Thousands of union jobs were lost. And for what? Greedy union leaders bringing their flock down a path of destruction.
BA will not experience what other companies have experienced due to the fact they have a product that is in demand for many years.
So who are the losers and winners??
Bottom line is the North West will lose and the South East will Win.
Rad has been turning the corner for some time.now. It is gaining a great deal of respect not seen for years from institutional investors.
WAG and CVS have done very well over the years while RAD has been molting.
Now it has new skin. They have closed many stores in areas that have cost them big time through pilferage.
If you haven't stepped into the new RAD stores, you need to.
Rad continues to upgrade all the stores that have been profitable or at least break even in the past few years.
New marketing for front end sales looks promising.
SSS look promising as well.
Last but not least the stock continues to climb even on down days in the market. The after market today as well as total shares purchased shows continued strength.
Calls and puts are a fools game. Only a trader with lots of money and crucial data at hand should do this.
Apple is a great company but like all companies it can turn on you quickly with good and bad news.
But they have billions of shares. Their upside is limited. Apple has less shares and the upside is much stronger going forward.
The Seattle employees are the best. I don't believe in outsourcing Boeing technology or employee labor.
BUT, If the demands are too much, Boeing will do what's right for the owners of this fine company. Both you and I are owners by the way.
Boeing is the most productive and innovator of new and advanced tech. in the world of aviation. Second to none.
So if union demands try to put a gun to the owners of Boeing in the Northwest, so be it. You will lose big time as stock holders and employees.
Jobs will be lost.
Many states are frothing at the mouth to get Boeing to move to their respective states with special tax deals that will cause Boeing to move far East from your location.
Thousands of respective long term jobs will be lost in the Northwest to others.
Think real hard why Boeing has decided to stop all union negotiations in the N.W.
They have better deals some where else.
Good luck trying to get Boeing back to the negotiating table.
I really hope you all come to your senses and keep jobs where they belong.
Rad held it's ground. Why? You figure it out.
religious and political fanatics, on the Ford board.
I HAD A LOT of faith in Fords CEO , but I don't anymore for letting this stock go nowhere.
He is playing cat and mouse between F and Msft. If he was faithful to F he should state that fact or just tell the stock holders of F that he has not made up his mind and be done with it.
The F family will just say "don't let the door hit you when you leave", they're not stupid.
If he goes to Msft I think it will be a mistake.
Nothing can return that company to it's old self since Bill is gone.
It will tarnish his reputation as a smart CEO. Myself, I hope he stays.
65% of the time the US markets follow the same closing trend as Europe.
At the start of trading Europe follows us 75% of the time.
Once they realize they were wrong and need to jump on it will be to late. Their end of year holdings of Apple will be paramount to showing they are holding the best of breed when it comes to future income for their investors.
If they don't hold tons of Apple their investors may decide they are too dumb to keep their investments in their funds.
They are totally ignored. If they want advertising money they need to open up access without wanting to pay for their news stories. I would never pay for news when I can access it elsewhere.
Wall Street news can and should suck it up and stop trying to make money when they can't by trying to sell their product. We all know how to get it else where.
