People have been paying for politically incorrect remarks for a long time now. Let's ask Biden about those 7-11 owners again. We need clarification here. Maybe Indians are not such a hot button issue, eh saheb?
Remember Jimmy the Greek? Nixon's Sect'y of Ag? ( maybe it was Sect'y of the Interior).
Oprah and Milk will just have to wait for him to die. The sooner the better as people like him are the problem, the factor holding this country back from racial and sexual equality. Tell us Oprah. Now's your chance. Toast: it's the republicans too isn't it? Marginalizing black folk in the GOP not to mention glbtq.
Don't forget renewable energy. You know, like windmills and solar panels. You know someone told me yesterday that the farmer-landowner in CA gets $8k per month for each windmill on his land. I said no way, you must have heard wrong. 8k a year maybe but 8k a month?..... each? Same person said solar panels on a friends house $100 per month (variable depending on sunny days) lease for 30 years. Yes, 30 years. Imagine the penalty for early stop.
Obama makes utility companies across the country buy this stuff as part of the "green energy" support program. The utilities pass the cost on to the consumer. Just think, maybe that farmer truly is making $8k a month on each windmill paid for by each and every one of us.
Years ago a friend of mine wanted to go hog hunting down in CA out of King City. So four of us went down there and drove up in the hills where these wild hogs (descendants of the Russian Boars) were living. We goofed around, did some target practice, and saw a lot of rooting. Al wanted to go down to the lake thinking it would be a good place to find a pig but the rest of us did not want to. We ended up leaving empty handed. Al went back by himself later on down to the lake and killed himself a boar. We had a nice roast on part of it.
From ModernGraham (see in BGS suimmary): On the valuation side, the company has achieved significant growth in EPSmg (normalized earnings), from $0.37 in 2008 to an estimated $1.00 for 2013. This growth would seem to support the current price and the company appears to be fairly valued.
Now nothing says that OLED is not fairly valued due to its good balance sheet, high margins, and positive outlook. Would like to see what MG has to say, probably similar to what I just stated
Someone mentioned the high debt at BGS and 0 debt wi' 200+ mil cash at OLED. Well, you can argue stuff like this without ever changing your opinion. BGS is using its debt in productive ways. OLED sits on its cash, cash that it obtained by frying investors for $46.50 per share and diluting yours so it could buy some patents that you never knew it needed..
BGS manufactures, sells and distributes processed foods. It has about the same # of outstanding shares at 53 mil. Rev's are 687 mil or $13 per outstanding share. It pays a dividend of $.32 a share quarterly and the stock price is $34. OLED has rev's of 129 mil (142 mil projected) with about 43mil shares out which is about $3 per share. It pays no dividends. The stock price is also $34.
Look at the revenue difference, rev per share and dividends paid. How do you figure OLED is worth the same? If OLED rev's were 687 mil what do you suppose the share price would be? Is it all excitement over what money might be earned no matter what is being earned today and tomorrow and next year and the year after that?
If shorts can scoop up low bids to drive the price down why can't long conspirators buy at high bids to jack the priced up? Create a phony high bid for a few hundred shares and drive it up? If you naturally have more low bids than high bids then nobody wants to buy it bad enough. How much is 142 mil in sales worth in stock price? How much is the "potential for more" worth? What do the analysts tell you?
I thought they all ready looked at naked shorting and shorting in general and concluded that there was nothing that needed to be done as a general policy change.
One reason UDC is a good stock to short is no dividends. However, just paying a dividend does not stop shorting if the shorts include that amount in the calculation and still think they can make money when the stock goes down to where they think it will. Dividends are paid to the lender of the stock but are paid by the broker involved who collects it from the short seller and it is so labeled so you can tell it is a shorted share.
"kinda makes you wonder" ? Jobs wouldn't have anything to do with it would it? Jobs and citizenship (dual). Access to USA welfare, fstamps, disability, education, clean water, good utilities? MONEY - MONEY - and more MONEY?
That has been going on for quite a while. Drugs too. Not just Mexico but Canada and other foreign countries. Some say that we pay more here because they can't afford it over there. If BMY wants to sell a drug in, say Mexico, it has to agree to do it at a reduced price. Same with Canada and the rest.
We need Obama to force the WORLD to be more FAIR to us here in the USA. Agree?
Right now the top financial people are waiting for and expecting the next bubble and the next ...... The government plays with interest rates, regulations, money supply, etc. and when a bubble comes along you get a boost in employment, property prices go way up and people spend like crazy. When the bubble bursts you have all these people who actually HAD a JOB; people who bought a house during the boom that is now WORTH LESS than they paid for it. Even something like closing the military bases across the country caused mini-recessions and lost property values that lingered for years.
This last one was real bad, but for the government to "create" new concepts for old programs while insisting upon using the same name is a sad joke. Unemployment insurance is no longer unemployment insurance, it is WELFARE but nobody can admit it. Nobody wants to accept reality and move on. People actually HAD a JOB, and I had a puppy when I was 5. People actually owned homes that went up in value (way more than they should have as we know) that are now worth a LOT LESS. I owned homes that during the course of ownership went up and down in VALUE, even below what I bought them for.
Time to move on, wipe the tears away. If you want to pay people welfare then pass a law and put it in the budget. If you want to keep people in houses no matter what their situation is then seize the property from the bank and give it to them. Have a ball with government power and watch it happen. Legalize all the drugs, grab all the guns. Just have a ball with it. Play with it. Just pass it to see what's in it.
Your pal Ed from the Ed Show just confirmed what I said about "permanent" UI payments. He said that UI payments should be permanent, at least until the unemployment rate goes below 6.5%. Well, isn't that nice for you and Ed and all those people who HAD jobs. Then what about the 6.5%? Don't you suppose there are a few in that number that also HAD a job? How is that FAIR?
Once all the illegal aliens get signed up with phony I.D. info nobody will dare to enforce the law. The excuse at the hospitals and insurance companies will be that it is not their job to be immigrant cops. Holder and Obama will adopt a policy to ignore these minor infractions for more serious ones.
I would not be surprised if there aren't millions of illegals who will be signing up for Obamacare. If they can produce phony I.D. to get jobs why not produce phony I.D. to get signed up on a faulty computer system where the government wants to get as many signed up as possible.
Stop talking about it. Save it for later. Wait till price gets back to about 35-37 then come out with it again. Should be good for another 10+% drop.
Point is that Obama had no budget in his first term. He got his stimulus and the ACA but no budget. Spending? Look at the ACA. He and his democrats put together an insurance policy stuffed with goodies that they put together just for you. Then they told you it would cost less, you could keep your old one if you wanted, everyone had to chip in and pay something (even a penalty tax). Michele hired one of her cronies to do the tech roll out and bingo, we have the dung heap called Obamacare. The name of which was thought up by evil, racist, rich, white men to remind you that Obama is still just a ni__ger. I know 'cause MHP told me so.
toast finds these smelly old partisan politics articles, rips off a piece or two, then slaps them on this board with some idiotic topic. Once in awhile he copies the article name and wants you to read it like you will become enlightened to the democratic way. Recently he came up with an article that supports permanent welfare payments to people under the name of "unemployment extension". Permanent payments until if ever the economy improves to the satisfaction of whatever democrat is in power.
