Baba makes all their money in China and other far east countries (largest populations in the world).and they're very very diversified in many other business's. And yes you may not see Baba, at least in the long term doing a great deal of business in the U.S. until they set up operations over here.
But in the long term think of them like GOOG.
One other thing, their leader wants to bring wealth to others by providing jobs and income to those who have neither.
If you feel that way you should put all your money in Amazon. Which by the way has not earned much money at all from it's beginning. Oh yes, they do sell goods from those slave labor, as you call them, countries. Which by the way has given employment to many where they had none before.
This week is a typical rotation from stock to stock. Out of Amazon into Baba. Just like they do between GOOG and AAPL.
I hope your right. But lets not get too far ahead of ourselves regarding future prices for RAD.
It needs to prove to the large investors that RAD is doing very well and continuous shorting of the stock is a fools game. Over the past couple years Rad has been a big money maker for the multi million dollar guys on both sides of their trades. Run it up then short it and do it all over again.
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.
They can bash all they want. I never take things personal and never respond to their foolishness.
I'm an investor and enjoy taking on stocks that are punished and have a great future.
Hang in there like me!!
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.
But I'm a contrarian investor. Today I was purchasing Ford along with GM. Why? Because when a stock is hammered left and right for the last few months and falls apart like they did in the last week, you need to take a hard look on what they do now and into the future. "Things are a changing", as my good friend would say in his song. Do your D&D and expect to hold for 6-12 months while enjoying your dividends. IMHO you will be rewarded.
What I do care about is the others from west africa coming to our country when they should be put in quaranteen in west africa and not in the U.S. for twenty one days.
Why the h88l should we watch after them here? Keep them there, not here.
Wake up America and demand it. It's not racial profiling it's our lives.
Why can they tell someone does not have Ebola in two hours, as has happened recently, and we need to wait until 24 hours that a Dr. in NY has or doesn't have it. What am I missing here. Who is trying to cover up these things?
Or as I asked, how can this happen?
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.
It seems we have increased our population of those who feel our country owes them everything for numerous reasons. I won't even mention those reasons. Anything at all can result in a mob who in turn rob and steal from innocent people and businesses. Sharpton and Jackson along with you know who has set back racial relations back in time. They have made Martin Luther King roll in his grave. I live in one of the largest cities in america and 90% of all crimes are committed by one group of people. Yes the jails are full of them and for good reason.
Yea I guess not. It was surprising to see the date,, two days before F reports. In the past they have always had it a day before F.
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.
They have said time and time again that the numbers would be low due to CAP spending in 2014.
They have also said 2015 should be very good.
So, as an investor, what should you do?
You invest for the future. Long term. Not weekly.
For me I feel both GM and F will do well in the next 6-12 months.
WHY??? Because the Dems will be busing everyone that can walk and with the ability to vote more than once
in different counties since many states don't require a valid picture ID. The ACORN people ( under a different name of course, (Who by the way counted the ballots in ILL.) will be out in force with our tax dollars to be sure to count additional votes never really given. Mostly people who have died (they don't need photo Id's) but will be there to vote. Oh don't forget the illegal's who don't belong in our country but were permitted in so they could vote. Since, once again, no voter picture ID is needed.
Democrats are calling this a poll tax. What a bunch of lying political representatives.
I will say this, we have no republican leaders, only a few, who have the b#$ls to answer to the lying democrats. Those congressmen and senators who refuse to stand up for our Constitutional rights need to leave office.
Republicans and dems.
They make tons of money running it up and down. BUT eventually they will give it up for other green pastures.
Then and only then will RAD have it's day. As I have said time and time again you need a strong stomach to hold this stock. Also, never put money in RAD you cannot afford to lose, and then be scared out of your investment. It's a long term hold only!
Do your DD.
My dear ACE has some great reasons not to hold RAD. Pay attention to his reasons. For me, I'm a firm believer in RAD. But I also have the ability to lose money on paper and still hold strong to my position, many of you may not.
RAD is speculative. WAG on the other hand is a FAIRLY good investment but could go lower. That's why I say FAIRLY good.
For those that don't know me, I've been in RAD for years even below a dollar. WHY?? Because I love turnaround stories and as long as ACE who hates RAD.
We have been debating RAD for years.
