The French need to be pretty upset for harboring the mass murderers on their soil.
It's about time they take action against those Muslims who continue to talk about killing westerners within their own French cities and deport them all.
Oh wait. They are too busy discussing global warming.
Today's news mentions the RAD, MCK deal from last year. The news mentions that MCK stands to lose billions if this merger with WBA goes through.
I, as well as many long term holders of RAD are against the WBA merger.
Today's October report shows continued increase earnings for RAD vs last October.
The board has been quiet on this news While another 200 million share day is in the cards.
This buying and selling of shares are unusual even with the announced deal. Use SNDK as an example.
Yes the buyout, if it happens at all, is months away and may be contributing to the massive moves of trading.
By the way I did buy additional shares yesterday and today.
These people who want us dead, who live in the U.S. need to be deported at once.
Yes the majority of Muslims who are against this Jihad don't want to be hurt.
Unfortunately they continue to turn their backs and say nothing to condemn those who eventually will hurt all peace loving Muslims in their communities.
ACE, you have been knocking this stock as long as I've been buying it.
You know the routine, it will recover from this perceived short fall very soon. It was oversold today.
My best to you.
It stinks!! Why so? Because RAD has for the last few years been climbing a stiff rope to better and greater things.
I had a great deal of confidence in the new management until this deal was agreed to.
Now I have misgivings. The gross income numbers continue to climb from qtr to qtr.
They have made some great moves in the last two years and for what?
To agree to a $9 buyout! It makes no sense to the really long term holders. Yes we will vote against this merger.
Why? Because this company is worth a lot more.
NO we will not cry over the price from WBA if that is the final offer. After all many of us have been in for a lot less than the offer and will wait just like we have for the past few years.
No matter what the naysayers say and the promoters of RAD say, we are in for the long haul.
By the way, unlike ACE I never recommend a stock. But a few months ago I mentioned on the board to look at LXRX. Not to buy but just watch it. Like RAD I said it could be a diamond in the rough.
I also mentioned it is speculative and you could lose sleep over it if you play with funds that are earmarked for other things.
Did anyone on the board take a look at it or bought any shares back then?
P.S. Long, long time holder of RAD. A diamond in the rough.
Also if, and I say if, the earnings aren't great don't get scared out of the stock. Our day will come eventually for the long term holders. Not the day traders.
It sure seems so after seeing all their outside reporters chastising APPLE every time they get a chance.
Gross earnings were fine with me. Even better than I expected. The profits were lower than the market liked, but RAD has been spending dollars where it makes sense for it's future.
I've been in this stock for so long I can appreciate it's up and downs during these qtr'ly reports. Most of the time it is a great time to buy, if it goes down, about 5-7 days later.
Late comers to this stock have to realize the pressure this stock has from the shorts.
They consistently sell the stock to get the maximum price from the fall and then hop on again in a short time to drive it up. And low and behold they do it again and again.
For now, after today's purchase, I'll wait until mid week next week to buy or not.
For those thinking about buying more or purchasing the shares for the first time, I suggest doing what I'm doing.
Don't get too anxious just yet and just wait.
You have in the past let radicals infiltrate your imams.
it is time you take matters in your own hands and destroy those who would destroy you.
Your actions to stop these radicals are long over do.
You either do something or other nations will cause great harm to all you peace loving muslims who only want to live in harmony.
What kind of war is this?. Take out the trucks and save the enemy combatants?
This is disgusting and a slap in the face for all of our troops.
I'e been saying this for over 8 months. Now the brightest investors are saying to keep cash on hand. Like always they are late to the game.
As far as RAD is concerned, it's a great hold for the future.
Should you invest more? That's the big question. Only if you keep 25% cash on the sidelines.
So the bottom line is to take some money off the table if you want more RAD. If not, stay with your holdings in RAD or any other stocks you own with 25% cash.
RAD will do well. But it's a long term hold and not for the those who cannot afford to see a risk to there portfolio.
It's like LXRX I recommended months ago. It will make your head spin trying to understand their future.
Never ever invest money in these stocks you cannot afford to lose period.
Good night and god bless.
Just go there wherever your GJ lives judie.
Life can be short and I'm sure he or she would to to see you.
Oh I see buy this dog has sent a message. Too bad, buy this dog has been on ignore for many a month now.
In many cases it's just that, a rumor.
The old saying goes, invest on the rumor and sell on the news.
But it doesn't always work that way.
You either believe in the stock or you don't.
That's the bottom line.
Remember one thing, your the last to know if a stock has legs.
When the big boys decide to sell you will also be the last to know as well.
judie, thanks for the comment. Sorry you didn't see the LXRX comment I made. But it's still very speculative. At our age 25% cash is the minimum to hold. The whip lashes in this market and the talking heads saying to buy and others to sell on a daily basis can send us to an early grave.
I'm not too far from you at age. Had two more grandchildren in the past month.
It keeps me young.
God bless, stay young.
Ace, today was interesting in the fact that Rad recovered from it's lows.
Some biggy saw something in the numbers that were not that bad.
Although I must say my WBA holdings did do better and may have had an influence on Rad's price.
I don't know. I did buy 500 at 5.95 and another 500 at 6.00 yesterday I stayed away today.
As I mentioned in a response to your e-mail yesterday, I'm in AA.
Very disappointed in today's action to say the least in AA.
Too much negative news in the metals market but still strong in the stock.
Hope you did well today. As always,the market seems to surprize us all.
It may be a down day tomorrow. We'll need to wait and see.
Lesson #8. DD is critical at this juncture in the market.
Look at the short interest on any stock you own.
Take a look back ten years to see where the price was back then. it may surprize you.
Look for the positive and negative news on any stock you own. It could be valuable. Not on web sites though. They have lots of negative and positive news that is biased for the person writing it.
The market is totally on a roller coaster ride for the upcoming QTR.
Never have less than 25% cash in your portfolio.
Never be afraid to take profits. Don't try to be a pig and hope for more if you have good gains.
An opportunity may present itself if given time. The cash holdings is as good as gold.
We listened to you.
Now about that collapse!!
The DOW is one thing, RAD is another.
Earnings for third QTR. starts with AA tomorrow.
The financials come next week, I think.
The markets, as I hope, will show decent earnings above the the level the market expects, which is very low.
If these numbers along with forward guidance is decent on some stocks, not all, it will lead a rally to years end.
The million dollar question is which one.
