So these unassigned shares have a value of $0 and should not be included when calculating the market value of the company? Who got the shares, the company? If they are not assigned to anyone why are they being used in the earnings report? This whole thing is confusing.
So Yahoo is grossly understating share count and thus also the current market value of the company. Good thing to know before making a decision to buy. Don't trust Yahoo's numbers.
I mean 341 million of course... Why is yahoo reporting only 164 million when the most recent earnings report says 341 million shares?
If the real number is 341, then the price increase since yesterday of $1.6, is equivalent of $545 million.
This is my experience as a Lumia user and Nokia believer...
Biggest problem with the phone is it crashes too much, period. Everything else I can live with. But the fact I cannot trust my phone for waking me up in the morning is a big, big negative... Nokia has rushed this phone out without the proper testing.
I like the camera, photos and build quality, but it does not make up for the crashing issues.
Look, I was a long Nokia for 2 months, made over 50% profit on my investment. I got in at $2.65...
I do have a few positives though... I have dropped the phone on the floor twice, nothing happened, but that will not make up for all the other stuff I hate... Mostly all the crashing... On several occasion, I enabled the phones alarm clock, and in the morning it did not work because the phone had crashed during the night... That has happened several times, so now I use my old Samsung clap phone as the alarm-clock... Search the net and you will see lots of people having crash issues with the Lumia 920.
I have the habit of surfing the web while laying in bed at night. I hold the phone up with one hand so the display is in front of my face... After a while my arm will start to hurt, and if you do not believe me, try doing it yourself...
Dude, I actually go to the gym and work out... Please, if you have this phone, when going to bed tonight spend 30 minutes surfing the net and tell me if your arm will start to hurt or not ok? My arm does... That few little grams more than other phones makes a difference when holding the phone for many minutes while laying down on the bed.
One more thing... If you search for "lumia 920 crashes" you'll see lots of posts from people with crash problems... The phone suck!
I regret buying this phone...
1. It crashes a lot and is not reliable to use it as a morning alarm-clock.
2. It is too heavy... When using it to surf from my bed, holding it up for more than a few minutes will cause my arm to hurt.
3. The wireless recharging is something I never use. I mostly just use the USB connection to my pc. So, the extra weight it puts on the phone is not worth it.
4. I was using the GPS and maps when travelling in Brazil, and the map was very inaccurate. The Nokia Drive sent me to the wrong roads on several occasions.
5. It is a pain not being able to disable the social messages displayed on the top of the screen.
So, I will not recommend anyone buying this phone. I sold all my Nokia shares a while back at $4.40, making a nice profit.
Profit margin is a lousy 0.84%... Crooks getting paid while you loose your money...
Well, if you are so bright, why dont you tell me why BGCP's expenses are so high, at 98% of revenues?
Don't need insider info to come to that conclusion... Just look at the previous earning reports.
BGCP have a pretty nice revenue, and it is increasing pretty well... Only problem is they are keeping all the profits for themselves... What else explains expenses almost as big as the revenue?
I think that BGCP is making to little profits out of its revenue. Their expenses are almost as big as the revenue... Not good enough.
I think many investor are looking at the Yahoo number of RAS that shows a very low PE of around 5 and pretty impressive earnings for next year... But I'm pretty sure RSO numbers are way more solid, problem is $0.84 for next years earnings is way below RAS's... RAS it is the NON GAAP, for RSO its the GAAP value.... Anyway, my point is that Yeahoo is on the surface displaying RAS as a company that is making more profits per share, thus RAS is moving higher and RSO is going nowhere.
The stock is currently trading in the price range predicted by most analysts... $6... If we are lucky some of those that are currenlty in RAS will take some profits and purchase RSO... I would...
Perhaps now RSO management should consider raising leverage... They have been lowerin g it the past few years to reduce risk, but with the economy improving, I think they should start increasing the leverage... This would improve margins immediately.
Samsung is killing it over here! I wish they were listed in the US so I could by their stock... I'm not kidding... Specially the females are using it over here. All my aunts and cousins have a samsung... I spoke to them and they are all hooked and will not be switching to another brand anytime soon...
