argo, I do not have a chart/graph available. what I "do" is "remember" from 1/28/70 to 6/20/08. had I looked at a graph it would have looked the same way it looked 2 u and the same way it looked as it was being accumulated. I never played the stocks during my 38 yrs plus career because I didn't trust pcar. and I don't trust them today. the best thing they have done is to behead mark pigott from the c.e.o. chair. he was in the driver seat fron 97 or 98 till they cut his head off. the losses and damages suffered by the stock owners finally got his dumb self canned. he BLEW a market share lead that was built BEFORE he took over and drove it into what it is. thae stock will never reach where it was in your lifetime. it will be a monumental success if the marketshare will be retaken from freightliner. it took us 30 yrs to grab the lead from them. it took that lunatic 1/3 of that to settle into where it is now and it is losing more everyday. "I" am glad 2 b divorced since 6/20 08. it worked out terrific 4 me and several of the most senior people. u do and go where your head tells u 2 go. with a new c.e.o. at least u have a chance. were it me, the 1st thing I would do is hire back John Pigott who I KNOW to be a good , decent, honorable man. totally unlike mark. that's how it looks from the outside lookin in. my best 2 u.
I am cognizant of pigott's whereabouts and his history. that's WHY he was slung from power. maybe another could have done better. I can see no compunction to make me think another would have done any worse! if u like it, buy it. good luck.
good idea. look over the last 20 yrs. u will see the top rate was 112 a share. split the 20 yr in two and you have a 10 yr window to look at after the idiot took over and stock, market share, sales, etc. went straight to the shirtter. because of the now decapitated c.e.o. the 20 yr reflection would have never come from anyone who knows the past of this sweatshop. thanks for raising the point. u have done more good than anyone I know.
u obviously never worked for him any of your life. uh, is slobs all they hired? u seem 2 b well schooled..................not. just another dummy. I knew the kid when he was a student at Stanford, and watched him slither for his brief 10 yr window of failure. he DID NOT WORK FOR PCAR ALL HIS LIFE. u r either a liar or misinformed. make your pick. and clean your nose.
what a crock of shirt response this is. he was a snake. he is a snake. and will be a snake tomorrow. he has never broke a sweat from work in his sorry life.
he earned his dues. stock prices at 50% of the best ever, closing the most profitable factory in company history, losing ALL the market share lead back to freightliner and other competition, etc. just for beginners. a silver spoon in his mouth does not mean gold results with an obvious "wood" brain. WHY WOULD YOU WANT MORE OF LOSING? too bad there is nothing good to say about bad news or decisions. argo, you ain't gonna get flowers and wine from a multi million dollar loser. your last statement is an oxymoron. dinette is a simple moron. see if you can spot the difference.:)
I never felt more like singing the blues from red ink running from my head to my shoes. I kiss everythjing no matter how it smells cause if I don't i'll lose my scab job. woe is me. woe is me, dinette the whining dummy who last week lost a year of gains. why does a a kook like dinette have to do 2 jobs? he's just doin the best he can. hahahahaha.................................losin again today I see dinette. face it. u r a loser. period.
jealousy has always been ugly on you dinette. still is:) come see me at 3rd and commerce. we will find out what kind of sound a yella guy makes.(that will be you)......:)
the difference I see in you and me is "you are still trying to make a living and mine is made". if u r as happy with your position as I am u r a happy-happy guy. I sing in Nashville 2-3 times a week, when ever I "want to". it is my recreation that rewards as opposed to worrying about stock prices. "I never lose a dime on ANY day. "ever" that's a big difference in u and I. if I knew in 1970 what I know now I would never have set foot in that factory. but there ain't no "rewind". ima lookin at 65, hopin i'm healthy and couldn't care "any less" about making money. it either comes in the mail or tourists give me $5 a song to do what they request. I end up with way more than enough to buy my fuel to Nashville and to realign my wardrobe. (show business dresses than factory work) and is a lot more fun as well as rewarding. Iastly 4 u, I don't care if you make back all you lost last week plus $10 k more or if u lose the same amount. I don't play stocks. "i'm retired". maybe u don't understand what that REALLY means. if u are hustling stocks for the last 4 years u ARE NOT RETIRED.
you will like it if u ever get to retire.
my decisions allowed my retirement to continue to accrue. a wise man does stuff like that. since you have no pension, "you are obviously not a wise man". take note loon I have drawn 1/4 mill and been retired for 6 yrs. try to match it. you can't. period. how did you get so dumb so fast?
dinette, if u think goin from 68 to 61 a share is "good news" and you think "I" am ignorant, u and your followers are fools. ...............no new news here. oh, b.t.w. my pension check on 8/1 was not down any. hahahahaha u get what u deserve.
say again? is this a joke or another pcar cheerleader, or a "legitimate" pcar board of director speaking? it's breakin out alright. straight for the cellar. come and buy yerself a scab-bilt made by folks who are getting "all" the law provides........but nothing like the #1 share leader pays their employees thus producing a "superior product" to the scab bilt plastic special. they r now a joke.
u just "don't" understand the definition of "retired" do you dummy? u saw me in ms. like I saw u in ms. there. now we r both lieing thru our teeth.
the Chattanooga election "loss" may have been a springboard. the election was "polluted" to say the least. in tenn. it's a "right to work state" meaning anybody can join that wants to and nobody has to join that doesn't. ima studyin v.w. "knows" the benefits to a union shop as opposed to a non. and they are under pressure from the german unions................."I think". if the membership accelerates and the co moves ahead of the non union shops in the south in salary and benefits and "democracy" in the work place, the blueprint is for the non union shops to want what v.w. has. in Nashville after 79, the consensus was "we want the peterbilt contract" around town . that 79 contract was the negotiations I was in on. it was extremely rewarding and rich beyond comprehension "at the time" to most folks. your question remains unanswered and I understand the question. the answer is in the future. AND if those folks in Columbus ms. find out what they don't know, there may well be another pcar/uaw negotiations on the horizon. and, maybe not.
i'm still around and messin with the music and a lil writing. i'm a happy camper to b free. I am 2 busy havin fun 2 b bitter and likely don't have alotta time left at 64. if I were still havin to go to the Madison stalag, "I would be bitter". but I don't and I ain't. my best to you. come see me on sat's across from demo's at 3rd and commerce at the wild beaver. we're havin a good time and doin some shack shakin from 1-6.:)
oh slave, u r so astute! I was thinking the same thing myself! sometimes I wake up in the middle of the day and/or nite just frothing at the mouth trying to get booted in and get to the board only 2 find it has confused folks like u and your amigo's! I feel your pain old friend. I think sometimes they may do it just to pull your tail you old coot:)
YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT. AND IT IS HEADED SOUTH.
I understand the falling stock prices. I understand it is moot to me. i KNOW when u r above your pay grade. no doubt it is moot 2 me. that won't change.
