Last time this happened, WAG boosted their dividend after the market closed. Something is up, WAG only does this when there is a leak. Strong volume from the start of the day even before Janet Yellen said anything. I think we where at 1.8m shares traded before she said a word.
You are 100% correct. I'm surprised there isn't some sort of article or red flag or something that popped up. I'm a long term WAG holder, so the news is great, the pop was nice, but what the hell?? 16 mil shares exchanging hands? The whole day I was watching WAG go up on serious volume and could not figure out what was going on, then at 4pm they increase the dividend...suspect!
What do you mean by good old use government?? Oh let me guess you are an overseas spammer being payed by whatever entity to spam these boards. I think this is an excellent sign that Clorox is over bought. I posted a few months ago that the fact no spammers, and no one posts on the Clorox board means its a solid stock with great valuation. GAT OUT NOW!! haha. What does that even mean.
Or a new iAnything. I mean come one lets make something new here. Even the iPhone 5 looks the same as the 4. Tim Cook's silence on dividend and direction has made me give up as a shareholder.
It has run up too fast, I was expecting it to hit these levels after the next dividend increase this summer. The definition of over valued seems to be changing in the broad market. Everyone is hungry for yield and safety. Its tough to put more money in at these levels. I can't imagine clorox going up another $3 before a dividend increase. Same thing has been happening to KMB, although their run up was partially post div increase.
Not exactly a fad, but there is no way a tablet can replace a computer. 2012 was the year of the tablet, now all those folks are realizing they still need their laptops which are getting old and need to be replaced. 2013 will be the year of Intel. Tablets will have to incorporate an intel processor to run a real operating system, Whose gonna send their kid to college with a tablet and call it a day? This quarter was to be expected, Q2 and Q3 will have big beats in store for intel, and I expect a 15-20% increase in dividend. The CFO even hinted at an increase in dividend this year, saying he'd still be comfortable with a smaller cash position.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Dividend increase from .90 to 1.04, Earnings will pick up in subsequent quarters (2,3, and 4) when people realize their tablet is not cutting it and their old lap tops are outdated. Toward 4Q most tablets will begin to switch to Intel processors so they run full on OSs. Tablets will have to have the ability to run Windows or Mac desktop OS. This is the only place tablets have to go.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
how is that bullcrap? Where you buying at 12? No? Then who was? Just wait for the buyout. It's become obvious at this point that anyone who owns this stock is not selling until a definite answer is out on BO.
Pfizer has approached amrn to start discussion on buyout. Friend of mine is a lawyer at Pfizer. He's not part of the deal, but others in his department are. Take it or leave it just sharing what I was told.
You sure do love your food stocks den56k. Makes sense that you are part of the GOP. I bet you're glad you can get your lipitor with my money cause the GOP added prescriptions to medicaid.
I have no "Inside Dope" like I said I've been in this industry for 20 years, I know a LOT of people in this industry and we all talk, and it has been the most negative I've heard in the 20 years I've been around. This includes manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers. If you think Zales is somehow the one lucky company doing well this quarter then so be it. Again this bearish view is based only on sales revenue, if restructuring debt and those type of things send the stock higher that has nothing to do with what I'm saying. However their revenue will be lower YoY. We will find out in a week.
I know there are a lot of bashers on these Yahoo boards, but I have to state my opinion. People need to get out of ZLC ASAP. I've been in the jewelry business for 20+ years, and things have gotten really bad. They may have done well in Feb, but that's it. There are no signs of any positives in the short term. I would be very surprised if Zales was able to survive through what I consider one of the worst periods for jewelry. It was actually better in 09 then it is now. Don't be stubborn eat your loss soon, and if they have a decent quarter then get out before next earnings. I'll admit I have a short position, but my tiny $10k short position is not gonna benefit by me posting on a message board, that is not my intention. If you want exposure to jewelry you are 10x better off with SIG, or TIF. Zales is a lost cause, and quiet frankly this sector is gonna be in pain for the near term. Just tryin to save you a couple of bucks.
