Market can't really be that dumb. He's just yanking your chain (and losing money).
"The problem is that nobody could find any evidence that J.C. Penney had ever actually sold the item for the original price"
Hey dummy - that's a problem for Penney, not the people suing Penney. That's the basis for the class action suit.
"Why can't Koch brothers just be content with having more material wealth than generations could ever ever need?"
Maybe they just want to be more like George Soros (who started as a rabid right winger)
"should maximize every government subsidy it can"
The limousine liberal creed in seven words.
" Maybe another one of those Elon tweets"
Could be - you think they'll add 33% to the total miles driven in a month. Elon is equally slippery with his numbers. Gotta love those non-GAAP adjustments.
" waiting for JCP to advance"
and waiting, waiting, waiting....
If you're going to hang your hopes on the JCP class action being decertified you're really living in an alternate universe. Give it up. The suit will cost Penney a few tens of millions and some bad publicity - it's not going to be the one thing that drives them into bankruptcy. (that will be all the other things, the ones that cause them to lose money year after year after year)
"what were you trying to say"
He went to public school in California where everyone's method of expression is considered equally valid. I hope you weren't trying to damage his self esteem - that's a class A misdemeanor in the golden state.
I'm guessing that it will come with a federal government subsidy of $45,000 / car and an "I Saved the Earth" button you can proudly pin to your lapel.
"Elon Musk will continue to change the Solar System"
Only one solar system? You'll never get to be a bishop of Muskianity at that rate.
"little or no compensatory damages"
Oh, it's much, much worse than that. Years ago we bought Apple and over the next two years it nearly ten-folded in price. But while that was happening at one point it had a 15 point drop. Sure enough Apple was sued for not revealing some ginned up "material" fact that caused people to lose money (if they happened to have bought it just before the drop and sold it just after). The class was certified and Apple caved. We got a small check (because we'd had the shares during the period in question) even though we'd had an enormous gain in the stock. There is rarely any justice involved in a class action - it's using the law to enrich yourself if you're a lawyer.
