P.S. from an investor standpoint, you don't wan't rad to be bought out.
In a couple years if not less rad could hit double digits.
A buy out would be $6-7.
I'm not a technical guy. But, rad has been shuttering the unproductive stores for a while now. They are the stores that seem to lose inventory to anyone who can grab it.
All the other stores are being upgraded, finally, to bring more people into the stores. A total refresh.
For an investment standpoint I feel rad is turning a big corner to bring down their debt over a period of Qtr's.
It won't be easy. But they have a great management team now and dedicated employees who have a lot of skin in the game.
Their wellness program is the best outside of OBAMA care.
They are focused on their communities and the elderly.
For me all the above has proved to me that future earnings will continue to expand.
Yes I own rad.
The bad guys always have guns!
Innocent people have no guns!
All the Obama phone holders can upgrade from their old phones to the Obama phone 5s in gold.
I can't wait for my new free phone.
Let all the working tax payers come up with the cost for my new Obama phone as they have for the past years.
God, I love my liberal elected officials.
They give me anything I wan't with no questions asked.
Why not?? Because it is the Muslims thats why. And you can't tell the U.S. that thats a terrorist attack.
They will never accept that in S. Africa that they are killers or terrorists.
It is a black eye on the U.S. government and OB land.
It's unfortunate, but an eye for an eye.
Chicago is the second most killing fields in our country.
Promise everyone what they want for their votes and give them nothing in the long run.
I hate to say it, but it is the democratic and liberal way.
Don't get me wrong. I'm only expecting the worse from the wall street crowd on Monday.
The same ones who hate APPLE.
As far as the 5s sales go, they may be a little light.
As far as I'm concerned they will be wrong in the next 30 days.
I do hope they exceed their sales compared to other years.
I'm a firm believer that APPLE will exceed all expectations in the next 30-45 days.
I'm with you on this and would love to see APPLE exceed the previous numbers on their report on Monday.
If the stock drops I'll be loading up.
Why?? Because of the new stores and the closing of old ones.
Plus the employees have a lot to lose or gain if the new management screws up or hits a home run.
Myself, as a long term holder, believes that Rad has a great future
Hang in there!!
First of all APPLE never ships a product unless it is perfect. Second of all, APPLE has not been sitting on their butts for the past few years improving and manufacturing the 5s or the 5c.
Yes they may have missed their numbers over the weekend and wall street will call the new phones a failure.
But under the cloth of secrecy APPLE has not lost the ability to provide new outstanding products.
Maybe, maybe not, but APPLE may have something new in October.
As far as the finger print technology is concerned, maybe there is a problem. This could be a reason for having so few 5s's for sale.
Good for them! Don't send a product to your cult believers without a perfect phone.
Let the believers stew for a few weeks waiting for the best phone in the world." Build it and they will come".
There is an unbelievable demand for the aluminum gold colored 5s. I thought this was only for China.
Well low and behold, all countries including the U.S. want this color 5s.
Yes, I do think APPLE was caught by surprise by the demand for the gold 5s.
I have 14 family members that have all APPLE products. Including grand kids with I pods.
For myself I have the 5. When my contract is due for renewal I will buy the gold 5s and donate my old one to the military service members.
I disclose the following holding. All long term. I don't churn my accounts.
APPLE,GOOG,DAL,LCC,UAL,RAD,GLW,BA,F,GM,TM,GS,BP,CVX,JPM,MET,AA and GT.
I don't advise anyone to follow my investments. Do your own DD.
The majority of Chinese want the 5s in gold color.
China mobile will need to negotiate with Apple to have the phones on their network or lose millions of subscribers to another provider.
It's a "I need to have it" situation. We'll see in the long term what develops with China mobile.
It's a status thingy.
As for Ford, they have great vehicles to meet everyones needs.
Good mileage, dependability and costs that are less than keeping an old car. Average age in the U.S. is about 11 years.
Up here in upstate NY we are driving rusted cars and paying through the nose to keep them running.
On an annual basis we are paying more than the cost of a new car on repairs every year.
So. What does this tell you?? The pent up demand for those who are smart tells you to get out of your old cars and get a new one. You will save money in the long run
Why can't we afford new vehicles in upstate NY?
Because we have no jobs.
Your governor and his environmental hacks won't allow fracking.
If it was approved this would lead to tens of thousands of jobs in the upstate region.
You and your liberal environmental hacks are responsible.
You need to get your liberal elected officials out of office and vote anyone who want's see the state become like it was in the past. Forward thinking and looking out for the citizens best interests.
Upstate has taken the blunt of down state spending. Get with it!!!
They would rather face death and injury than point out the killers.
If the police can't control the killers then the other killers need to take revenge.
I feel so bad that I need to say this. But this is an inside problem amongst themselves.The gangs.
The Chicago police can't stop it.
The police will only be there to pick up the bodies and spent shells.
No one will speak out on who the killers are.
So the bottom line is, keep young children inside and let the killings continue.
Your mayor is busy raising funds for re election. Promising the city everything and giving nothing. Just like your loved one OB.
Suck it up and face facts.
All thumbs down show your ignorance what is happening.
Their own subscribers will demand it to be available to them. End of story.
My feelings for the young boy shot in the face is beyond description. The poor boy.
BUT!! why the hell does a parent keep a young soul out so late and in a dangerous area??
I'm so sick and tired feeling sorry for these parents that lose a child to violence.
I feel so sorry for these angels that have been put in a situation that endangers their lives.
These parents are low lifes.
The mayor of chicago should stop looking for money from OB's continuous money raising trips and straighten out the killing fields of chicago.
The city will eventually go BK. Why?? Because business's refuse to have a position in a city that refuses to take the fiscal responsibility to have the city make the unfortunate and hard decision to balance a budget.
And remove the gangs from their city.
Kick them all out. Send them to the East coast or West coast where they will be welcomed to the freebies that these states love to give. even though they can't afford it.
If you send them to southern states they will be immobilized. Then sent to a paupers grave.
Chicago police you need to do what's best for your city. Don't let this continue. Clean up this mess!!
So what do they do now? Blackberry is in a death spiral that may bring the company to it's knees.
Where do you go, where do you go for the most secure I phone on earth?
Times up! It's the Apple 5s. That's the most secure phone on earth.
The governments, world wide, and companies world wide will take a very, very strong appreciation for the 5s.
Give it a month or two.
Iphones, Ipads, and portable computers will all be the cats meow to everyone from APPLE.
They are the most desirable and dependable products around.
Just like the bunny, they keep on going and going.
A person who is never around to listen to reason is doomed to fail.
A person who lacks an education to speak with the adversaries without a prompter is a failure.
Higher taxes have brought down the middle class. Eventual higher medical costs will bring the middle class even lower.
Higher taxes and interference by our government is intolerable. The tax payers of our country is being raped.
Business's have no way of calculating their future costs. Layoffs are going to be higher than expected.
So who are the winners and cheering population that will disagree?
It's those who keep on getting their free phones and welfare checks that don't deserve them.
But who pays for this? The working population that pays taxes, thats who.
So, with a dwindling work force who has the money to pay for all of this?
The government. That's who.
Bottom line is we need a balanced budget. If not all the young people of this country will be subjected to the highest taxes this country has ever seen all their lives.
Our elected officials are responsible for this eventual outcome.
Voice your opinion for a tax reduction and a balanced budget.
Vote against anyone who doesn't agree with this.
These old farts in congress, the senate and the white house need to be put on notice.
Our future generation will not agree to subsidizing their financial stupidity.
