PS - Just like BP. If the gov't takes too much money they it will get nothing. The gov't just bleeds off as much money as it thinks it can while letting the business survive. Then they lay off for a while and come back and hammer for more. How is the gov't going to win this when they have to say they are being cheap with people's healthcare? That won't go over very well? Settlement for what? Call Carlyl. I am sure they have their buddies in the gov't running the numbers with them and have a payoff amount ready to go. Or maybe not.
R u crazy?
MPW 58 properties. 1.861 PPE. .837 LT Inv. 2.201 LTD. 0 FCF. .141 Divs.
HCP 1196 properties. 10.886 PPE. 7.885 LT Inv. 8.921 LTD. .741 FCF. 1.017 Divs.
Looks like MPW is twice as risky as HCP to me. Plus HCP is much more diversified.
Why are you trying to con HCP shareholders to give up a good value for a lousy one?
A railroad is probably a safer investment than a tech. Buffett 101. We all make mistakes that do not become evident until after the fact.
If you buy BRK at todays price of about 214 K you should expect a long term return of about 5% minimum. That is all you need to know.
Give the banks some more time to blow themselves up again and brk might trade at 1.2 bv before you know it. Low rates borrow consumption from the future. The is no way getting around the laws of economics. Ko and axp look pretty blown out here. That leaves wfc bac and industrials that would take a pretty good hit on the next slowdown that will happen when the talking heads give the all clear for buying the market.
boring stock. i will take it. better than chasing all the new ipos. this is where web excels. from inflated markets on the way back down.
