bs- i never really bashed him- mainly just question why he couldn't admit when he was wrong! his so called army treated him like a god & even god would admit that the cold one was wrong several times! HOW MANY FRIENDS DO YOU HANG OUT WITH THAT ALWAYS INDICATES THEY ARE RIGHT & NEVER WRONG? what do you think of being married to a person that wouldn't admit they were wrong once in a while! TRY IT -MIGHT BE FUN FOR YOU!
i'm going to help you out & lead you -so you don't ge confused! under yahoo finance (at the bottom) look for "BALANCE SHEET" under the balance sheet- notice " total stockholders equity" now look for "NET TANGIBLE ASSETS" THIS IS THE MAIN ITEM!!!!!!!!!! do you see the "GOOD WILL" IN THIS ITEM? NO YOU DON'T------------- even thou the co. shows this item -like MANY other cos.!
you seem to spend all you time here trying to improve your short position! you are FLOODING the board repeating the same ( in an insane way) statements! you try to sound like an expert but really know " NOTHING" about the situation! you might not even know what "NOTHING" means! IF THIS COMPANY (OR ANY COMPANY) removed totally GOOD WILL- it wouldn't bother me 1 bit! you must sleep years at a time since in 2008-9 "good will" meant NOTHING FOR 95% OF THE BANKS & almost all other industries! to me it's just an artificial way to show a higher book value! now- most rating cos. (after 2008-9) remove it entirely. it was a joke before! numerous cos. with $50 (or over ) book values couldn't sell for $10! most had 'huge" good will values that meant Nothing Nothing Nothing now you should know what "nothing" means!
thriftman- as your name indicates-you are just throwing sand in the wind for your short purpose! you have NO KNOWLEDGE WHATSOEVER! if you weren't short ( & believed yourself) you wouldn't even be on this board! all of a sudden you are the expert -or are you the one FIRED! $45 million reserve is a lot of dough & i'm sure their attorneys indicated to them what the max. exposure could be! save yourself time & use it for your short positions elsewhere!
where did you go to school? making over 250 million per year & worth 0! people talking about "GOOD WILL" must of sleep thru 2008-09! banks that NO DOUBT board members here have stock in (at this time) showed substantial USELESS good will! i don't buy ANY stock because of good will since once the economy slows this item could develop a drastic reduction for the company& most cos. don't even adjust it- when it should be! when yahoo indicates the companies balance sheet they -AUTOMATICALLY REMOVE GOOD WILL! not a portion BUT ALL OF IT! LOOK FOR YOURSELF!!!!!!! numerous companies over $50.00 per share show huge amounts for GOOD WILL & LOSING MONEY- NOT MAKING 250 MILLION!
agree- good will meant nothing in 2008-9 so it' really a joke in many cases also their profit will offset the 45 million loss! might be a good buying time for 1-2 points & while you wait you get a great dividend! furthermore they were at this price before & it came back to several points higher!
did anyone on this board ever think about talking about the COMPANY instead of john boy? this board acts like it's investing in JOHNBOY instead of the company! evidently john boy is winning -since he probably likes all the attention that this board has creating for him!
bay- i hate to tell you but you are around 6 MONTHS behind time! mm learned MANY MONTHS AGO THAT SHE DEFINITELY HAS TO SPEND SHAREHOLDERS MONEY MORE WISELY & you should of realized it sooner! your statement is basically worthless! didn't you notice she QUIT mentioning COST when she acquired any company? that was the first sign that she was getting VERY worried about ANY ACQUISITION-no matter how small! better find something else of concern!
letter- i think people read her statement wrong! these were people that worked for her -maids servants-door man poop pick uppers-cooks-etc etc!
someone will have to explain what a PROFIT is to mm! i think she thinks "IT IS BUYING COS. WITH THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY BUT HAVING NO PROFIT!" no profit-no earnings! no earnings-less money- more money being used! no profits-less money- means nice technology but no earnings from nice technology over YEARS of nice technology! to her profit means "buying cos. with no profits but make sure when negotiating your salary- you MAKE HUGE-huge PROFITS"
pep- now you know how i feel! none congratulated me & i bought a TON at 36.21 & try to prove otherwise! if you want prove -i'll send a picture of BIG FOOT holding a ton of my certificates! see how EASY it is to prove buying at a low price!
to get your dividend-you will have to get into mm bank account! the bod gave mm everyones dividend for the next 3 years!
go back 7 yrs. & they were talking about increased interest rates! problem-THEY HAVE NEVER INCREASED BUT GONE FURTHER DOWN with every talk! have you seen them in the last week? UP-NO-NO-NO! DOWN-YES-YES-YES!
i disagree! they have a 3% dividend-why would you want them to use their money up unnecessarily? they should keep it for buy backs & acquisitions! if you really want to buy or keep this stock -the addn't 4 cents quarterly won't be a big deal! 3% div. is already A BIG DEAL- unless you haven't checked present rates!
no number by me! EVERYTIME A BOARD MEMBER MENTIONS A VERY POSITIVE # (OR SOME YHOO POSITIVE RECOMMENDATION IS REC'D) ( both stabbing in the dark) THE stock goes down! THAT GOES TO SHOW YOU HOW MUCH OF A CONNECTION THEY REALLY HAVE! also goes to show you they are really close to the janitor at yahoo & not MM! maybe not even close to the janitor but probably the sanitation worker picking up the trash 2 miles from the main office!
amazing! both sold right to the penny! check it out- maybe one sold at $43.11.9! i guess it could happen if both are on the same account!
