I just want to see if you'll admit to being a fibber, Blurts. So far you're dancing up a dust storm.
And the term is "obsessive compulsive", acronym "OCD"
OCD could also stand for "(O)h (C)rap, (D)id I lie on a message board and now someone is calling me out on it?"
Well Blurts, it's on track to getting to one of your two recently stated goals:
A couple weeks back you were calling for $3.60, where you said you'd buy back in after having sold all your shares the day before the earnings release.
Yesterday, you called the chart ugly and predicted it would go down to $4.00.
Either one of these two scenarios would fulfill your desire to "buy back at a cheaper price" after having sold all your BBD shares the day before earnings.
I don't understand why you're so disheartened, given that you don't own any stock and are waiting for a cheaper price to buy back in.
as Blurtsy's cystal ball predicted?
That way Blurts could "buy back in at a cheaper price" after having sold all his shares the day before the earnings release.
Did you fib, Blurts? C'mon, you can tell us. Santa doesn't bring presents to bad boys who lie.
Well, I filled my box at $3.56, Blurts.
How much did it cost to fill your box?
I was wondering where you were, I thought that the Bombardier G-Men had come in the black van and spirited you away to the Mirabel Gulag.
Damn, BittyBit, if fruitcakes are welcome at Starbucks, you'd be better off giving up that basement bachelor apartment and moving into your local branch.
Still an absolute DumDum...........
TD is up about 13% thus far this calendar year, not counting the dividends..........
TD started the year at around the $84 mark, it's reached as high as $98, now it's sitting around $94.
Investors don't have too much to squawk about.
profit rose 11%, yet the stock is down over the past couple days (just like the rest of the Big 5), with a further 1% drop in stock price on release of earnings showing an 11% rise in profit.
Haven't checked today, but I would wager that National Bank is down today as well.
Nah, the same thing happened to National Bank yesterday, good numbers, dividend hike......it's just that the market has been on a tear for quite some time....I think it's a little long in the tooth and was ripe for a pullback.
The concern is that the Fed will stop with its monetary pump, and we all know that all that Fed money isn't being lent out by the big banks to Joe Average, but is being socked away in equities.
Additionally, stock splits are generally when investors lighten their load. I think this is all a temporary set-back, where many investors sell their winners to offset their losers for year end tax purposes.
Let's keep in mind that less than 10 years ago, this was a Can$45 stock, so I'm not complaining. The DRIP has been nice, although they've recently rescinded the 1% discount-to-market for DRIP investors.
I'll stick with TD, interest rates have to rise at some point in time and the loan profit spread will only increase.
Hence the fear of Fed easing on monetary stimulus, which is really what's holding up the stock market. All that Fed money isn't being lent to Joe Average, it's going into equities.
TD, along with everything else, regardless of numbers is going to take a short-term beating. C'est la vie, mes amis.
Dan, ask Blurts if he really did sell all 100 of his BBD.b stock the day before the earnings announcememnt.
Ask him if he was a-fibbin".
Q over Q gain, Y over Y gain, but a miss nonetheless. I think that despite the dividend hike and the split news, this still takes taken for a stroll to the woodshed this a.m.
Looks like we got a modest divided hike in there as well, a penny a quarter.
Reading into the report, it seems that some charges resulted in a miss of about 9 cents, which could pave the way for a continued sell-off today. CIBC didn't fare as well, it seems. They're on skid row with BMO.
EPS came in at the low end of the scale. Looks like all the cylinders are firing. The question is: where does the stock go from here (as in today). It wouldn't be surprising to see TD go the way of NA yesterday, despite all the signals showing green, it still got beaten like a red-headed stepchild.
IMO, splits don't mean a whole helluvalot.
Looks like you two codgers are starting up a Bromance. All the best, maybe you guys should turn it up a notch and switch medications. BittyBit, buy Grimmy a pair of Starbucks mittens and take him back to your "maison" on your "autobus"
Speak French to BittyBit " il sont le grande DumDum".
Hey BittyBit, what the hell is a "bug supporter"? And...what's "supremacy" mean
Is a "bug supporter" like the truss old guys like you wear to keep the roach in check?
Still a DumDum.........
Announces 2-1 stock split, and the stock is down $1.40 on the news.
This isn't stock specific, but market specific based on fear that the Fed will stop pumping money into the system. Let's face it, the Fed money isn't being lent out to Joe Average, it's all being poured into equities. When the Fed pulls the plug, equities are in for a short, sharp ride.
Clean up in aisle seven, clean up in aisle seven!
You bring whole new meaning to the term "bagholder". Hint: put my eggs on top.
National Bank of Canada, the country's sixth-largest lender, announced a 2-for-1 stock split and raised its dividend after reporting a 4 percent fall in fourth-quarter profit.
