IMO the feds will not raise interest this year...I believe 25bp in mid 2016
"To support continued progress toward maximum employment and price stability, the Committee today reaffirmed its view that the current 0 to 1/4 percent target range for the federal funds rate remains appropriate. In determining how long to maintain this target range, the Committee will assess progress--both realized and expected--toward its objectives of maximum employment and 2 percent inflation. This assessment will take into account a wide range of information, including measures of labor market conditions, indicators of inflation pressures and inflation expectations, and readings on financial and international developments. The Committee anticipates that it will be appropriate to raise the target range for the federal funds rate when it has seen some further improvement in the labor market and is reasonably confident that inflation will move back to its 2 percent objective over the medium term."
There never was a real GE message board it was corrupted with political messages automatically generated by a bunch of computers. Eliminating the so-called GE board was the best decision YAHOO ever did! The board will come back "cleaned" just for GE chat only very soon.
The market manipulator is well aware of the motions you are experiencing during a run up and a collapse and will play your emotions like a piano.
THE DEADLY ART OF STOCK MANIPULATION:
In every profession, there are probably a dozen or two major rules. Knowing them is what separates the professional from the amateur. Not knowing them at all? Well, let’s put it this way: How safe would you feel if you suddenly found yourself piloting (solo) a Boeing 747 as it were landing on an airstrip? Unless you are a professional pilot, you would probably be frightened out of your wits and would soil your underwear. Hold that thought as you read this essay because I will explain to you how market manipulation works. What the professionals and the securities regulators know and understand, which the rest of us do not, is this.
RULE NUMBER ONE:
ALL SHARP PRICE MOVEMENTS -- WHETHER UP OR DOWN --ARE THE RESULT OF ONE OR MORE (USUALLY A GROUP OF) PROFESSIONALS MANIPULATING THE SHARE PRICE.
This should explain why a mining company finds something good and" nothing happens" or the stock goes down. At the same time, for NO apparent reason, a stock suddenly takes off for the sky! On little volume! Someone is manipulating that stock, often with an unfounded rumor. In order to make these market manipulations work, the professionals assume: (a) The Public is STUPID and (b) The Public will mainly buy at the HIGH and (c) The Public will sell at the LOW. Therefore, as long as the market manipulator can run crowd control, he can be successful. Let's face it: The reason you speculate in such markets is that you are greedy AND optimistic. You believe in a better tomorrow and NEED to make money quickly. It is this sentiment which is exploited by the market manipulator. He controls YOUR greed and fear about a particular stock. If he wants you to buy, the company's prospects look like the next Microsoft. If the manipulator wants you to desert the sinking ship, he suddenly becomes very guarded in his remarks about the company, isn't around to glowingly answer questions about the company and/or GETS issued very bad news about the company.
I’m amazed! With so many tax experts, so many knowledgeable tax professors out there on IRS rules and no one knows if YAHOO spin-off is taxable or not? I believe the experts already know that there’s no TAX LIABILITY on the YAHOO spin-off, the stock is kept low for accumulation and to favor short covering. YAHOO would be at $32 if it was taxable, the street wants to put doubts in your mind so you will sell.
shorts are S C R E W E D! better cover today...
FCAU As of 6/30/2015
Shares Short 69.48M
Short Ratio 10.7
Short % of Float 15.09%
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I wonder how can Wall Street put a valueation on a stock like FCAU of about $15.00 per share... with a yearly revenue of $110.8 billion with a pretty good decent net profit. Right now FCAU has a market cap of 19.17B. (0.17% of market cap) The share price should be at least double or triple or more as a takeover candidate based on consideration of yearly revenue.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
"Trailing Google in the overall unique visitor count are Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) with 214.4 million visitors and Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ: YHOO) with 209.5 million. These are the only three properties to surpass 200 million unique visitors in May.
Among the other top online video sites are second-place Facebook with 85.6 million unique visitors and Yahoo with 59.1 million.
And still the I D I O T S put a negative value for yahoo core. Go figure it!!
" indicates the stock has been oversold"
More likely over shorted from i d i o t s that don't know doodly squat about yahoo.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Opportunity only knocks few times, It's so obvious YHOO has been kept down for accumulation and also today's option expiration...This stock is changing constantly within the same hands in a reciprocal accord within B.houses and if you got guts to put a buy order just a bit below the asking it goes up right away. Buy at the asking as I have been doing.
Not long ago MM said she allocated two billion dollars to buy YAHOO shares back, the more it goes down ...the more cash is saved. In for the ride.
Never to read all the BS in the financial media, it will only give you acida. Although with all that printed BS...the media can control markets to go up or down for their own interest and their cronies. The SEC just sucks it up without a word.
A Yahoo executive Business Insider met with recently shared some interesting speculation.
This executive thinks that Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer wants to sell the company.
This source pointed out that such a sale would allow Mayer to exit the troubled company a victor — having tripled Yahoo's stock price since July 2012.
She would be able to say, proudly, that she was hired into Yahoo to save the company as a software engineer, but ultimately realized her real bosses were Yahoo shareholders — to whom she returned billions of dollars in capital and provided huge returns.
We were hesitant to share this speculation because it should be taken with a huge grain of salt!
It is just one source's musing, albeit one based on personal interaction with the CEO.
Mayer has given no public indication that she is running Yahoo with anything but long-term goals in mind.
Mayer would not be crazy to want out.
The company's core business, display advertising, has shrunk for the past four quarters. Yahoo is trying to recapture those revenues with a growing mobile and video advertising products, but that's not happening fast enough to prevent overall revenues from declining.
Yahoo's homepage traffic is cratering.
Over the weekend, Keach Hagey and Douglas MacMillan of The Wall Street Journal reported that traffic to Yahoo's homepage was down 31% in March 2015 versus March 2014.
Under Mayer — and prior CEOs — Yahoo has positioned itself not as a producer of content, but as a place that distributes content for other partners.
A quickly shrinking homepage erodes Yahoo ability to do that. It erodes Yahoo's ability to do much at all, really.
You can't blame the trend on Mayer. She's been unable to reverse it, but it started long before her arrival. Why wouldn't she take a chance to walk away from Yahoo a huge winner?
The last time Yahoo was on the block, in 2011, it had many private equity suitors — including TPG, Silver Lake, and a group led by former News Corp CO
I gathered if the stock price goes down to a certain price entry they will start to buy, in few words the lower it goes and the more cash will be saved on the buy back.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
News imminent...maybe by next month.

FOR THE NEW FCAU INVESTORS Details about Ferrari spin-off
Fiat Chrysler set to spin the Ferrari brand off into a separate, independent company.
Ferrari might be the car all people — even the strident non-gearheads — would love to be able to take out for a spin. Executives at the Italian automaker will be taking their company out for a spin this year, as Fiat Chrysler is spinning the brand off into an independent company.
Ferrari will also IPO, with a 10% stake in the company hitting the markets. The remaining 90% will be distributed among FCAU shareholders, according to Reuters. Ferrari will likely list in both New York and on a European exchange. The spinoff and IPO is part of Fiat Chrysler’s attempt to grow by 48-billion euro ($61 billion). “As we move forward to secure the 2014-2018 Business Plan and work toward maximizing the value of our businesses to our shareholders, it is proper that we pursue separate paths for FCA and Ferrari,” FCA Chief Executive Sergio Marchionne said in a statement.
Marchionne also told analysts on a conference call Wednesday he had no plans to increase the float in Ferrari beyond the planned 10%. He also said Fiat Chrysler has no intention to list stakes in Maserati, Alfa Romeo or any other of its brands.
Marchionne, who took over as the chairman of Ferrari earlier this month, added that he would keep his role at the luxury unit even after spinning it off from the group.
