all aluminum Ford truck.
I believe it. As I said before, anyone living in the rust belts of america and thinking of a new truck would be a fool not to select the new F150
Many companies sit back and adapt a mentality that nothing can go wrong, because they have a product that has been well received and has little competition in the market place. So they sit back in their boardrooms lighting cigars and enjoying twenty year old scotch. A little like the Turtle and the Hare. But they soon find out there is an abundance of competition out there while sitting back and counting their money while the turtle is snapping at the hares hind quarters.
If you have been around long enough as an investor you can probably name at least 10 great companies that went south due to their sleeping at the wheel. No pun intended.
Ford and GM are investing for the future and I'm not worried about that. In fact they're doing exactly what I want in my investments in companies. Sure, as an investor in both companies I'm losing money (on paper) on both of these investments. No I don't lose sleep at night because I invest for the long term just like they are.
All us baby boomers want a large comfortable car with lots of trunk space. It needs to have every thing in it that is not complicated to use. Every safety feature available to keep us from crashes and or killing someone.
It needs to be elegant and show we have arrived before we die.
IS THAT ASKING TOO MUCH!!. Aluminum body would be nice with 8 speed or higher transmission. Don't need 0-50 in 6 seconds or great mileage. WE don't drive more than 8,000 miles a year anyway. Most of the mileage is going to the DR's or seeing the grand children.
Now don't get me wrong, the younger folks would like it also. My daddy and his daddy had Lincolns as well.
As for me I'm in an expensive large full size car made overseas. If Ford made the same quality large Lincoln sedan I'd buy it. But everyone including you have only produced SUV's, which are great, but put your sedans into these little tiny poop boxes. Excuse my language. GET IT ON FORD and do it fast.
He has no control at all for the oil prices or stock market. Let alone Ebola.
You are living in a dream world and have no idea about the world of politics, financials and commodities and who controls them.
The man has not one idea how it works and refuses to listen to anyone regarding these topics. Domestic and world situations are beyond his comprehension. He only has one thing on his agenda. Golf and raising money for god knows what.
You just need to review my previous messages regarding RAD.
Also, since I believe in other opinions, please review ACE's messages as well.
This way you can have differences of opinions, sort of like FOX news.
CNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC are all suck ups to you know who.
Sorry, although I don't normally get involved in politics, jobs is #1.
Also the dems have let this country down in that arena. Health care and taxes on the only ones who provide the highest job creations, small business's, have been crippled by government regulations and taxes.
Also our government leaders has divided whites and blacks against one another in just a few years time.
You need to go back 20 years to see this division of humans against each other.
Turn around stories, who have come up from the abyss, need time to get themselves rolling.
For those of you who predict high prices and those who predict doom need to take a step back and smell the roses.
RAD's progress will take time. SET IT AND FORGET IT !!
As for me I love the pullbacks as much as I love the higher prices. The last two days have continued to show high volumes and higher prices. That is a good sign.
Don't get too exited about tomorrow. There has been, over the years, a great deal of manipulation on RAD stock. No matter what the news is tomorrow the shorts can cripple the stock with all kinds of negative news for the talking heads along with web sites that have said RAD is a sell. You should know who they are.
So, what would I like to see or hear tomorrow?
#1 I want to see some improvement from last qtr.
#2 And more important to me, I want to hear about future guidance. Store closings, store upgrades, leases that have been terminated and no longer carried on the books, I want to hear about McKesson and how that is helping RAD with inventory, I want to hear about front end sales, I want to hear about drug sales and I want to hear that they don't jump on the band wagon about not selling tobacco.
This is everything.
Bottom line management has been very forthcoming with RAD. That is a big positive as far as I'm concerned.
I want the facts with no sugar coatings. Trust is more important with no legalize type #$%$.
Good luck to those who are believers. I've got my fingers crossed for all of you small fries like myself.
Canada, in just a few hours, knew what it was and declared it so, a terrorist attack.
Right on Canada, at least your country is not as stupid as ours. Political reasons for not profiling the real enemy has and will continue to cause our country great discomfort. OH don't forget to search all the white american children and elders at airports while you let dark skinned people through so you don't upset them.
Remember FT. Hood. What a piece of work our government has turned out to be.
Driving a truck for business or pleasure costs more than most other forms of vehicle transportation. Those who say F made a poor decision due to current lower fuel costs have no idea what they are saying and cant see the forest through the trees. The following is important to consider and think about.
#1 Gas savings is a priority and doesn't care what fuel costs are. You still save money.
#2 F has embarked on a great future with aluminum. Many future models will also have the aluminum body and will be embraced by other manufacturers. Many have switched already, but only include aluminum in certain parts of the cars.
#3 For anyone contemplating a truck purchase, in the future, and live in the rust belt would be a fool to not consider the new Ford 150.
#4 Yes, F has spent a great deal of money in this new technical change. Also has sacrificed a great deal of lost sales due to plants being shut down for the cross over. A big risk for sure, but will pay big dividends for those who believe in Ford as an investor.
It was one of the biggest mistakes of our country. If they were still around we wouldn't have isis at the level they are now. It must break their hearts to know that after all their lost and wounded troops in Iraq were in vain.
But, they have shown little response publicly about the isis situation and what they would have done differently if still in their capacity, before they were retired /fired. And also why they were retired/fired in the first place and by whom.
It's classic for RAD. The sellers drive it down and then drive it back up for pennies on the trades.
BUT there could be other action taking place. This was much faster than I would expect it to recover before forming a new base that normally takes weeks if not more after the last fall in price. This is no cat bounce.
Well, well, well. Maybe, just maybe, the ATM machine is now being moved from the governments hands.
Maybe the tide is turning to reverse the tide of threats and out of wak settlements forced by our government to the banks and financial institutions. There is no accounting where the settlements are going and to whom by the way.
I for one hopes he wins. Just for justice and the American way to end this stealing and threats to companies across this nation that for the life of me they have not fought off this egregious taking of company and stock holders money.
Well Herb is not sitting still. He's an old man who want's to fight what he feels is injustice and I wish him well.
What makes me sick is so many american people and companies are afraid to voice their opinions these days. The fear of the IRS or other government agencies has stifled our constitutional rights.
Who will stand up for those who want justice and change? No one!!!
I hope Herb lives long enough to see justice.
Will she be beholden to POTUS and all the Reverends who continue to look after only blacks, and disregard all other ethnic groups? Or will she be a great Atty. general for her race and gender, to bring real justice to her position and grapple the problems that this administration has ignored. Case in point, the IRS.
When I hear of an inventory build up in companies it raises a yellow flag for me. The opposite, for me, shows a company is selling it's products. That's a good thing. McKesson manages RAD's inventory. Did you forget?
Looking to the past performance of a stock doesn't predict the future.
I, like any good investor, look at the possibilities of what may come not was done in the past.
I look forward to your posts tomorrow if things don't turn out well for RAD.
I also look forward to your absence tomorrow if things are looking up for RAD.
OMG how could that be????????????????
Tell me it's not so JOE (NY Yankee) for those that are too young.
What I learned was to expect a drop within days of the higher opening prices on any company that is talked up too high in the media prior to it's opening and then skyrockets above those expectations.
Google did this. It's a mirror image with BABA. I hit the buy button about the same price as Google went down within a couple days In the 80's. That's when I got scared out of Google.
I'm now in BABA hoping for the best.
What did I do with GOOG? I had to buy back in at a much higher price and sticking with it.
Why in h2e2l2l was he hired in the first place with his background clearly available to the company if a background check was made. If I was a family member of those two women I would like to know.
Many thanks to the executive who took him down. Thank God he had a weapon.
So many business's are being robbed daily around our country. By whom?? You guessed it, the perpetrators are those who fill our prisons but are looked upon as being racially profiled.
Those innocent business owners who use a weapon to defend themselves are then taken to task if they shoot someone. Then to top things off their business is destroyed by inside and outside perpetrators.
It seems to be the same. Some teenager is shot and killed. Great news stories.
But they fail to say the teenager is over 6 feet tall and weighs up to or more than 200 pounds.
And is capable to take down the average law enforcement officer.
30 million shares today along with the impressive turnaround is nothing to ignore.
You got that ACE and Casey?? I hope you do.
I want to know how a west african family from an ebola country can come to this country to live. Who needs to support these people and pay if they have ebola?? The cost is estimated to be over $20,000 per day.
