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.
Answer: It's called faith for the future in a stock and investors are piling in. Not just retail investors. It's the big boys.
When the tide goes out, it's the boats that are still floating that gives rise to improvement.Like RAD
The pharmacies are beginning to see big profits in health care at their locations.
For the young and healthy who may see a DR. 0-3 times a year for minimal problems, the drug stores will take care of them at minimal cost
To sign up for obama care the cost could be too much each year for the unemployed college student or unemployed.
If they have to sign up for one of the precious metal plans it may just be the copper plan.
BUY COPPER FUTURES!! HA HA
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.
I doubt you missed out. Apple will go above $700 in 2014 once the naysayers get back on board. Icahn jumped the gun and will be in Apple for a long time. He timed it just right.
Cook is one smart CEO. He tells it like it is and is one smart financial guy.
He was brought to Apple by the most innovated man in history,Steve Jobs.
Steve also had Ivey. The brain behind Apple.
Both of these men have Steve's heart and soul in their bodies.
More great things to come but not until they are perfected and ready for a population that never thought they needed it but now do.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I wouldn't. All armed forces need a reliable source of information at their hands. To be reliable they will need an Apple product readably available.
I've been in and out of Rad for years. And yes well below a dollar.
But along the way I learned from my old pappy to take profits and not be a pig.
Which I have. I still own a few shares, a lot. It's a great turn around story but nothing goes straight up without some pull backs here and there to get the weak hands out.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
P.S. I, like Ace, have been watching Rad for years. We politely have exchanged our assessment on Rad over the past few years. He would never listen to me why RAD was a great turnaround story.
Don't get me wrong, he had some very good reasons until the last few years.
Then RAD brought on new management. They sold off the non performing stores and continue to update the old ones.
If you haven't been to a new Rad and remember the old sickly ones, you will be amazed at the transformation.
The old moth has turned into a colorful butterfly.
I don't think there will be a sell off. A ton of shorters who had to cover over the last few months, maybe they will attack in the last week. But I don't think so either. Rad is on a run higher in the new year. They would rather show on their books that they own Rad. Apple is in the same situation. They need to show they're in it as well as Google.
If Rad continues to increase revenue as they have the last few qtrs. they will probably double or more in 2014.
Your first three sentences are right on.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
P.S. He could give a darn about all the worlds birds being chopped up by the ugly fans.
I do think that birds that fly into these fans have no brains. They must have a feather missing for brains.
GLOBAL WARMING. Mother nature is not in charge. I'am. Keep shutting down factories for the sake of the green team. The sky will fall. The hell with jobs being lost. Overpopulation is not the problem. It's all about the ozone.
