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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!
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!!!
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.
Why complain when you can put him on ignore. If he changes his handle, or whatever you call it, put that on ignore as well. I have many times as well as the guy who does hundreds of ggggggggg's over and over.
For me, a split makes no sense at all. Goog is holding so many interesting companies along with it's money making deals today. If a few pan out in the future as I expect, then Goog can be another BRK.A type stock. I'd rather own a stock with very few tradeable shares than some stock with hundreds of millions or billions of shares outstanding. Goog is Kleenex and Jello of our generations. ( if you want info then just GOOG it)
It's name recognition!!!!
He, like a lot of old rich f@rts in govt.need to go out to pasture.
If you are a working tax payer you should be ashamed if you don't vote these people out in the next Fed. elections. We need new blood who understand how to balance a check book and also go after the people who don't deserve generous entitlements from UNCLE SMOOCH.
You took the words right out of my mouth. Tracy is too vuong to understand how year end movements in stock work and their implications for the upcoming year.
Some of Berkshire holdings were at one time incubating type companies. He had the presence of mind to recognize their potential. He has never split the stock as you know. I agree that he has been shy of investing in what we call concept stocks. But holders of BRK.A and B have been short changed.
What I see as well as you,I think, is with GOOG is they are looking to the future, not the past. Lots and lots of things in the incubator.
I look forward to another great year with GOOG. IMHO I think the stock has a long way to go in the future.
You are playing a dangerous game as a retail investor by doing this unless you have tons of money.
Tim being called to WASHington and not being in China in time for a rollout and announcement.between CM and APPLE?
During the last LITTLE ICE age if it wasn't for coal half the world would have perished.
By the way, Mother nature is in charge of our climate changes. MAN is not the culprit.
All the people who blame man kind and wan't to create all this green energy is the big cash cow winners.
The only threat to man kind on this earth is overpopulation. Mother nature will take care of this in Her own sweet time.
P.S. I'm a pro lifer but strongly believe in birth control.
Why?? You'll need to read the reason.
CM has seen it's stock pop for the first time in weeks. All because of the AAPL deal. The Govt. of China owns CM and loves AAPL. So what could possibly happen?? They will push AAPL products to the masses. Upgrades as well as new phones.
What is important is the price. What is CM willing to do as a subsidy to those willing to buy AAPL's product? No one knows yet. But multiple year commitment for service has paid off for the major carriers in the U.S. and CM knows this very well. Sell them a phone for less than what it cost's and make much more money in the long run.
CM, if you didn't know, has the most users who are willing to pay a higher price for the right product.
An AAPL product tells everyone that I have arrived and I wan't the very best and will pay for it.
AAPL and CM are in for the long haul making AAPL the standard in China for those who won't settle for second best.
