How did they make that determination if they couldn't possibly known how long the 'demonstration', 'reaction to the video', 'spontaneous action', 'terror attack' was going to last.....
I don't think there was a game clock on the event.......?
You mean the ones you selectively agree with, or all that are involved in the discussion?
I hope your computer is powered by solar? I would hate to think that you are using energy from a coal fired plant to rant your case. You surely don't drive a fossil fuel powered vehicle? or heat your home with a fossil fuel sourced energy? The clothes you are wearing, I hope they are made from 'natural materials' and not something which consumes fossil fuel to make or grow on a farm or process in a factory using electricity. No dyes please, those are chemical based requiring huge amounts of energy to produce. Mother nature will take care of global warming, with or without humans. She always has and always will. The earth has been in existence a heck of a lot longer without humans than with........
No, the story says that 'In April the company ended advanced discussions to buy $5B real estate financing company, Northstar' . I found it interesting, because it is confirmation, in my mind, that there was more than just a rumor several days back.
Sorry, I don't know how to link it. I found it in Schwab under NRF symbol 'news'. The title of the story is: ARC Healthcare new $3.7B Deal For Griffin-American Healthcare REIT. The comment about the discussions with NRF are in the body of the story. The authors are: Mike Stone and Soyoung Kim. It was release at 0900 this morning. Let me know if this doesn't get you there and I will dig deeper!
Think about this, every time you breath in your body starts converting oxygen to CO2. Every time you breath out, that CO2 is released to the atmosphere. every breath, every human. Your digestive tract produces CH4(methane) which is also released to the atmosphere, Start doing some math and you begin to capture the enormity of the situation. Why not put a monitor on all humans and count the number of times each breathes in and out and levy a tax based on that number? (politicians of course would be exempt). What a huge revenue stream for government. Would solve the deficit issue and get everyone involved in the solution......
I still believe there was more than a rumor behind the ARCP/NRF 'story'. It had to be shut down to get past the spin date. The carefully worded 'denials' by both company's were clearly co-ordinated. We shall see, but, if I were a betting man, I would bet there will be some kind of deal once NSAM and ARCP after the spin. I don't think one will buy the other, but ARCP could certainly use some 'management help' in their business! IMHO
Rain is a good thing Beave! How's that water thing going in California? I see they discovered oil in LA today. Good thing that was just a pipeline and not an oil freight train!
It was 2:00am for crying out loud! You wouldn't expect her to answer the phone at that hour....? What? Oh!............never mind......!
It's called inflation......but, not to worry.....our trusted government folks keep telling us that there is no inflation.
dar, I believe that although an option transaction settles the next day, in the case of an option exercise, the three day delay is still in tact for the stock record date. I checked on this with two separate brokerage houses and both confirmed that this was the case. I have option positions that I 'called' to capture the dividend. In order to do so, the 'x' date still applied. If this is not the case, then I need to challenge my brokers. They both were quite sure that this was the case.
dar, Your posts are very helpful , and much appreciated, by us old folks as well. I have been investing in the markets for over 50 years and still learning more every chance I get. Markets have changed drastically over the past 50 years, and any investor who doesn't keep learning along the way, had better find some place else to park their wealth! Keep your posts coming and best of luck in your investments!
Every time it was punched down it popped right back up. All is looking good as we head towards the spin. Longs have no reason to sell. See you all at $17+ by spin day! IMHO
If it is such a bad idea, just let it die a natural death!? On the other hand, could it be that the amount of fear among the many that are threatened by the potential success of an evolving new competitor, is driving the 'shills for hire' analysts? Having been investing for a very long time, I smell a rat (or two)! Good ideas prosper without too much hype....bad ideas fail all on their own! All the frantic negative press is a positive for PLUG.
