I think racebill has a crush on allsteel. Seriously, look at how he follows him around making essentially the same comment over and over.
I gotta ask - why do you think Fake Racebill is Allsteel? Fake Racebill's style is completely different from Allsteel. Even if one assumes that who whoever Fake Racebill is deliberately masks his/her regular chat style (a fair assumption), the gulf between FR and AS is simply too large for me to believe they are the same person.
I didn't buy either. See what happens Monday. I just can't see JCP going straight to zero without another run into the $7s at least.
Anyone here thinking of buying in to play a speculative bounce? Tight stop of course, but it's been beaten down so far there should be a rebound (even if short-lived). Will see how it trades tomorrow.
Google ads are prompted by people specifically searching related topics. Not really a good analogy. Google is where people go to look for information. Facebook is where people go to stalk their highschool girlfriend/boyfriend.
Quite simply, marketing departments are run by airheads. They think FB is "hip" (even though it hasn't been since 2009ish) and don't put much effort into ROI analysis before allocating advertising spend.
Zuckerberg laughs all the way to the bank (shareholders too).
Very good call. I didn't buy back in, glad I decided not to. This one just has too much downward pressure.
That's true - but Canada's economy is more self-sustaining at the moment than the US, and with the income gap not nearly as great in Canada, the middle class can still contribute to economic activity. What the US is finding now is that a nation in which 90% of wealth is controlled by 1% is not sustainable, unless you dissolve democracy and reinstate medieval serfdom (which may very well happen).
My fellow 'Muricans.
We're broke. Not a dime to our name. It's over.
I'm turning the White House and other government buildings into a bingo hall and event space with proceeds wired to China.
Now if you'll excuse me, Lloyd Blankfein has reserved this spot for his daughter's wedding in an hour. Senators, Congressmen and women, please follow me single file.
Kenneth Lay has been hired as a consultant. And those kids who started TheGlobe dt cm in the 90s are working the mailroom.
The reversal on the daily chart looks very determined. I'm skeptical of this stock but it wouldn't take much to rally back to $5.50 or even $6.
Nobody cares. It's a software-service company now and its market share in the corporate MDM sector is what matters.
That's what's so terrible about high expectations and a hysterically fawning CNBC press that cream their pants every time they bite into a Red Delicious. Will they shed a few tears tomorrow?
BBRY meanwhile still enjoys the benefits of expectations so low that if next earnings show even the slightest hint of an improvement or beat, look out above.
Excellent article in Market Oracle. Search "The Retail Economic Death Rattle".

The era of frivolous spending on trinkets and gadgets is over. Much hay is made of young people spending a lot of money on smartphones, but they don't spend much on anything else. Margins will continue to get squeezed until retail chains can no longer sustain themselves and disappear.
