sfbusfbu.Thanks I'm going to get a ruling on this when I next meet with my CPA. Explain
UBTI . I did hear a rumble about a $1000 threshold. My CPA was an agent for the IRS.
and she's pretty savy. stuce
Les , We've talked before.Wife bought one bag and one gift certificate last month. Everything was discounted.
store was busy, Kor's was dead.I have my calendar marked Aug 5th for COH earnings.I'm going to wait till
the report,and may buy some more with a 4% dividend I can wait.Coach has been around a long time,lots
of experience.I have faith in them.In fighting if that was it,is over and they will now concentrate on business.
stuce in CT
HoHoterry, I reading I saw a note that if LP's dividend was over $1000 it could trigger an audit.I guess I'll keep bouncing the question off my CPA's knoggin. The article didn't go
into any details,the subject was "what triggers an IRS audit. stuce
Hohoterry, I've had a few MLP's in IRA's ,and just toss the K-1's in the woodstove. I was told at the time
I bought APU it was great for an IRA,but not to exceed say,15% of total. So maybe if the IRA was heavily
weighted with MLP's then the taxman would surface? Added KMP to the IRA recently.I think the Government
gave away the farm with the Roth IRA,we haven't touched ours,and hope we don't have to,just let'em grow.stuce
Leslie .I'm a stubburn swamp yankee.I went to a COH store twice lately.And both times the stores
were busy with people buying.Discounts were offered.A short walk in the mall to KORS.Didn't go in
but watched ,store was almost empty..Attendands were grab-assing from bordum. I still think that
COH had a rough corporate struggle for top dog to replace Lew F. This can be quite destrucktive
to business operations. Lets hope that's behind them and they perform as they did so well in the
past. Buying COH as it drops.Yield good.
I had a chance to see a KORS store last thursday ,twice,they were empty with sales personal ready
to pounce on new customers.They looked bored and were grabassing when they thought nobody was
looking.. Went into COH,a steady trickle of customers.Everybody was buying,some two and three items.
There was 50 discount on everything in the store,off the mfgr ticket price. My thoughts that COH is doing
well in the Orient,and not so good in North America.Earnings still up,but easy to bash.Same thing happened two years ago before COH shot up to $70. I suspect a major "infighting" at corporate looking for Frankforts
job, and loser had to walk.Maybe the decks are cleared now and management can focus on growing
I sent a reply to BlackcrkFarm,but Yahoo's message board is #$%$. I've been a holder of CRVP since 2002
with my buy of CRVP at $4.50 ish. Have dollar averaged down to $1.62.Got with in twenty cents last month.
Where's BlackCreek farm in VT. I bought some Blue Spruce seedlings from Red Rock Farm, in Chelsa,VT.
A day trip from CT,. Stuce
I too have held CRVP for quite some time. They bottled for several labels and ran 3 shifts,and a nephew worked for them.Said they were going balls to the wall.Started buying at $4.50 ish in 2002,averaged down to cost per share of $1.62. Where's BlackcreekFarm? I bought some blue spruce trees in Chelsa,Red rock farm.A day trip from CT
CRVP will not breakout till the stranglehold the Bakers have on the bottom line..This a cash cow for them.Salaries, business trips,annual meet in Florida,landlords for buildings owned and rented to CRVP. Money loan @12%
to CRVP by the Bakers.When attitude changes,then maybe a breakout,with possible sale of company..-stuce
I talk to them everyday,I think they both gave up on CRVP,Said it was "dead money"
I know they sold most of their positons-stuce
Haven't you noticed backyards full of plastic toys,and the kids play with cardboard box something
came in.They get plenty of toys as gifts anyway.So yes shares of TONKA,long since gone,bought
by Schwinn? I was pointing out that stocks should be somthing kids can identify with,like MCD.
Maybe a local bank they pass everyday. Maybe MSFT, Olive Garden ,Brinkers. My son sold his
TONKA and bought Central Maine Power paying 14% dividend.Kids today are spoiled.just a
suggestion. If you spend every thing you make,your going backwards.
Years ago we stopped giving toys to the grandchildren.We give stocks and can buy by direct purchase
from Utilities,Banks etc. The kids are in DRIPS ,so when a birthday rolls around we ask for their DRIP
stub for optional cash payment and add to their portfolios.Got both my son and daughter started young
too. Boy with Tonka, girl with Wendy's. Both are financially savy,and understand money is a tool. STUCE
TET 68 Navy .Saw your handle,I'm just starting to enter the bakken fray.Watching KOD
and CLR .Also WLL.Waiting for a pull-back on all stocks. STUCE
The cheeseburger Club was great too.I've slid over to chicken club,aseago sandwich.
Believe it or not,we've gone for Arby's roastbeef sandwich.Super thin sliced,with a dab
of horseradish sauce.very tasty.Sold 1/2 of WEN will buy back in dips.
Held this bank for take over potential.Bought at $5 and change,wish I had loaded up then.Still hear
take out rumbles in southern CT.Maybe buy in dips. STUCE
btdarb, Hermance walks with what, 20 million as golden parachute,and five more cronies
take another 12 milion each.Maybe the dividend slash was to fund the parachute locker.
As I said I'm gone and have peace of mind that HCBK is behind me.The world's upside
down, rewarding these crooks,on top of their salaries. As to Cramer,I watch him,and don't
process his fast talk,I've mastered tune-ing him out.If ya listen to him long enough,Cramer
contradictes himself.I listen only to be tweaked with maybe a fresh idea,but ignore his
I started buying at $13+,and dollar averaged down to 8.53, sold at 8.64,just covered commissions.
Lost faith in HCBK,huge debt. It was interesting what MTB said about FNFG 's accumulation
of 200 branches of HSBC getting out of New York.Deal was offered to MTB too.
I'd like to own MTB,and may buy in dip.
Didn't figure dividends in break-even tally. STUCE
HCBK,small in coparison to MTB,however HCBK's debt is twice MTB. I think maybe MTB's shareholders don't
like assuming this debt.Merger may not go thru,then HCBK will drop to $5. I'm out, I sold all I had,and broke even. May buy back in dips,but I feel merger looks sour.Hermance disappoointed me,I'm gone.
I sold a pant-load at $5.46.Still have 1/3 but will buy back on dips.I don't understand run-up to over $6 with
meager earnings.Can't see .18/share/yr at the rate WEN 's is going.Long time holder,stil think Wendy's
has quality as it's backbone.
Tom, I placed a good till cancel order on KGILF at @2.90 yesterday and
just found out the order went off at $2.866. Note 866 is Patties License
Plate,USS 866 , The Tin Can I was on was DD 866,you can Wickpedia
that. Anywhew,KGILF has added about fifty employees to step up production
and improve recovery rates.I may buy again depending on price,but I
feel this is a long shot.
