nuff said..... BABA is very high risk! Either huge gainer or huge loser.....not for average investor!
I believe that it has become obvious that the railroad property is worth a lot more now that the shale oil/gas bonanza is underway. I imagine there are a number of companies that would be interested in acquiring the rail property if the lease is reopened by the lawsuit.. In my opinion, NFS/WLE have fumbled this one badly. What started out as a dispute over a few thousand bucks to cover some legal fees has resulted in the exposure of a whole series of highly questionable transactions (many of which would appear to be clear violations of the lease agreement) that were withheld both historically from PW and more recently from the court during the case discovery. I would expect more than one bidder if there is a buyout.
Mike, 'one without legal experience' that would be you......... No one can predict the final outcome in this case yet, but, you obviously don't have an understanding of the normal legal process in a Civil Law case. One requirement in Civil Law is that both parties are required by law to be responsive and forthcoming in the discovery phase. (both by way of documents and deposition) You be the judge for a moment. How do you feel about the 23000 pages and then the next 56000 pages of relevant documents not disclosed by NS and/or WLE in the original Discovery phase? or, the lack of candor and preparation during the depositions? I will help you here, the judge 're-opened' the case Discovery which there is normally a real reluctance to grant. Another way to interpret NS and WLE behavior during Discovery is as a direct insult to the judge, the court and the law. Contempt is a legal term if you need one. The case Judge has been and remains very professional in this case. It is unlikely, however, that he has not noted the lack of openness and forthcoming. We shall see........but, in the meantime, I'll hold my shares and add if there is a pullback! Good luck with your investments.
My summary takeaway was, that there were several things in the works, the numbers that will be reported going forward would be well received by investors, and if management doesn't feel a fair valuation is given to NRF by Wall Street look for more spinoffs or other plays to get the appropriate shareholder returns. The statement was clearly made that 'NRF/NSAM' management has proven that it can deliver over the past 10 years, delivers what it commits to, and will continue to do so going forward. There was an underlying confident tone to conference although the delivery was not always polished. Good call.
Unfortunately, in my opinion, since Sinovel is a Chinese company (which AMSC stockholders became dependent on) , I doubt that AMSC will ever see any monetary result from a judgment in AMSC's favor. Sinovel will simply disappear into Chinese 'bankruptcy/insolvency', and there will be no way to collect. Mysteriously, other Chinese companies will end up with the remnants of the former Sinovel assets and Chinese business will go on. Like many AMSC stockholders, I lost money, and finally sold out a few years ago. If you are investing in AMSC, do so based on the ongoing parts of the business and discount the Sinovel issue. If, by some miracle, any monetary payment is actually collected by AMSC, it will be a bonus. Avoid investing your money in any Chinese based company. The Chinese are for the Chinese, not for increasing the wealth of Foreign investors. Just an opinion from a person who has worked in China, spent a lot of time with many Chinese business leaders, and 'experienced' the Chinese business culture first hand! Good luck with your investments!
Now, numerous outbreaks of deadly children's respiratory viruses across the US. American children at risk. I am sure their is no relationship......move along folks.... nothing to see here.....You can keep your own doctor.......
mumbleoften, If you have any young children or grandchildren in your family, you might want to use your common sense instead of your spin........ This stuff is in the real world! DC is full of amateurs, and the rest of the World sees the opening!
fox, Using your logic, we should also ban driving, running, basketball, soccer, walking, jumping, bicycle riding, horse back riding, volley ball, gymnastic, snow shoveling, skiing, ...and, and, and.
Network news and CDC are claiming 'their is no risk'! Why the quarantines? Nothing to see here folks....move along.....don't worry.....you can keep your doctor.......
Good to have your expert opinion on these things, beav! Glad you are on this board to educate the rest of us! :)
One can only conclude that the reason the head of WH security was fired was because she was a woman! There is no evidence of this administration having ever fired anyone for incompetence.
It would seem hat the risk of exposing the military personnel to the disease exceeds the benefit that they can deliver.
and....you can keep your doctor, and there is no inflation, and it is Bush's fault, and Ebola is not a threat to Americans, and ISIS is the junior varsity........
After the Nov election, watch the price of oil head back up. This cycle is repeated every election cycle.
