Traffic-driving anchors like Sears and JCPenney are shutting down stores...Sears is often criticized for failing to invest in its stores...Sears (SHLD) also announced that it may sell three of its iconic brands -- Kenmore, Craftsman and DieHard. The company said it is looking at strategic options...Eddies still EXTRACTING VALUE from the already DEAD BODY of SEARS. THAT is what KILLED SEARS. Bloodletting, blood sucking Eddie.
some retire....find travel a unnecessary burden....bet shep don't much care if you buy sell...opposition to wrong thinking is necessary to prevent mass lemming syndrome.
US taxpayers should not be paying to locate and maintain military installations around the world to protect other nations but rather should be paid for doing so. Two, the US should not extend to non citizens the benefits of US citizenship on taxpayers tabs. Three, Global warming is flawed science being used to extract payments from US taxpayer to address inequality in wealth, no carbon tax. Four, Not all nations are ready for democracy. Where tribal or religious identity outweigh national commitments the people are not ready for democracy and it is wrong to force it on them. Five, trade, where nations place unreasonable tariffs on US exports (200$ a pound beef in Japan) or cause selling below costs of any product due to government supplements, these issues must be addressed.
Weather Donald wins or loses, these issues that Resonate with voters will be adopted by one or both national political parties soon. This has always been the mechanism of change in our democracy.
% % % very important to put information in perspective, using comparisons such as percent will help you. Details, Details, often qualify and can lead to realistic expectations of future events. Help yourself, it is free . Regarding future Walmart closings. There will be some. Walmart had not closed any stores for years. Did anyone, or does anyone think every decision of store location by Walmart is or will be successful? More will close than have closed in the past. All mature locations not making a sustainable profit will close. Expect the number of closures to average around 80 per year. Expect the number of new store opening to average around 400 per year. Why? Percentage is a very useful and important tool that can enable realistic expectations.
no way possible? The true costs and changes of Obambacare are yet to reach consumers. Yes obambacare can and will be overturned or changed so much it will not bare any resemblance to act as passed. Reason? Obambacare is designed to enable higher payments for medical care. Much lower outlays for medical costs are necessary to enable U.S. industry to be competitive. Historically six percent of GDP has been spent on medical care. The U.S. spent an average of $9,086 per person on health care in 2013, which translated to more than 17 percent of gross domestic product. The UK spent 2800$ in 2013 for 100% of every citizen. The U.S. spent 4100$. In every measurable way the U.S. is behind every industrialized nation in the quality of healthcare.
all over 40 should be overtime, no matter the employees compensations level. The reason the forty hour week was adopted is still the reason all over forty needs to be the rule for everyone, including mid and upper management.
this 2% cut is surprising and indicates change at Berkshire. I don't know what to make of it. Surely they didn't need to raise cash, also I am just as sure Warren knows Walmart will increase in value, so, Why sell? Even 2% of holdings is more in and out than Buffett usual. I suspect new players on his team have been green lighted to tweak returns day to day.
liberals seek to promote welfare as a longterm solution instead of dealing with the underlying problems that resulted in each person seeking welfare. These problems in order of numbers contributing are; Unwed mothers (often deliberate to game the system), Drug users, unemployables. Deal with these situations and Welfare cost burden disappears. So our effort to help people needs to be changed from a handout to a handup.
if you want money" capital" at work, than you MUST tax gains from money at work at a rate LOWER than regular income. Failure to do so WILL result in money "at rest " (meaning a economic engine without fuel) resulting in zero growth and increased unemployment. Fortunately many know this (including the Clintons who passed the 15% capital gains rate reduction) .
African Americans....knew one of those, in fact, he worked for me-great worker--found out he was working two other jobs at the same time, and surprise his wife was getting public assistance, and his baby wives, they were getting welfare also. Turned out, that African American was paying three jobs worth of child support. So, have mercy on those who can not help themselves. Think of that poor devil and the price such pay for a little pleasure and smile when you pay your taxes..
Nothing changes, same posts, by same posters, Insane? Or paid ?
day to day nonsense....makes no difference...as long as profits are in place, sustainable, and business growth through build out or sss continues Walmart stock will increase in value long term. That increase and dividends are the bread and butter that investors are holding WMT for. Milker, find a better cow. One with real underlying weakness.
How many have been here long enough to know this was predicted by posters on this board? Sears has lost over $8 billion due to a consistent sales decline over the past five years. As of January 30, the company had around $3 billion in net borrowings. The stock has crashed nearly 65% over the past 52 weeks and 26% so far this year. Over the past decade, Sears’ notorious CEO and Chairman Edward Lampert has mostly just dismantled the once-sprawling retail empire....Lampert and other Sears investors will be compensated in full in case the retailer liquidates before loan maturity
Liberals fear just about everything from guns, fracking, global warming, salt, fat, competition, individualism, the Bible, big sodas, a strong military, Wal-Mart, Wall Street, to Right to work laws. These nonsense fears lead liberals to seek control of just about everything through government intervention. That liberal stuff is about to meet reality.
resources ? Isn't the path to prosperity clear? Seems that China saw and took that path. Cuba sees the light and will soon join the feast. Not so, that fool who thought the mother of all wars would be good for him and his nation. If North Korea were to use the tools they are developing, we better have a no nonsense President.
hear ye Mr. Timlickss...all the stored energy on earth is less than one days sunshine.... Yes, man is much too small to cause climate change. Much.
some posters here like orange hair, one of a kind shopping, carbon taxes, same sex copulation, mix or match public bathrooms....for me ; I don't care what nutcase cause you hold dear, but not on my dime and not placing any restrictions on traditional values. You keep your junk to yourself and nobody will ever know you squeeze the charmin. If you don't it is likely to get ugly.
true enough, however no harm, except it is a reset. Meaning: there exists a relationship between pay level that will be maintained, all will receive more; however since production has not increased prices for goods produced will rise by the same amount wages went up; What you talkin about smiley face ?
So, what's the problem. Not everyone is upgraded in this reset. Second, goods produced in this county will be less competitive. If you have any doubt about that, consider raising all wages by a huge factor, say 10,000 times, what result is certain for the products sold to pay that wage? Now, understand the real cost of Obambacare. We must find ways to reduce, (reduce) the costs of healthcare (those backward Chinese with their nonsense healthcare based on herbs and 3000 year old cures are out living us). In like manner we must find ways to reduce (reduce) the cost of Education. Why not tape the lessons, and put at least 50% of the lessons on line, using classrooms for testing and troubleshooting those with difficulties ? Education must not (not) be general; Education must turn out a product ready to perform needed tasks.
Them dogs are all beef, and the soda, refill it till you bust. Those shopper pay a yearly 50 to 75$ membership fee which they get back when their purchase total passes 1000$. I find courteous people acting with decorum in SAMS. No riffraff there.
