If you are going to cook the books you wouldn't show a loss IMHO. My guess is someone has a problem with the way they are accounting for sales since revs were up good and net was down. Hope this isn't an Enron and it is more like a Herbalife. Maybe we can get a nice ride up.
Guess you won't be getting any upgrades anytime soon. Fear of change by regulators. Who benefits by not having electric upgrades? I have an old ATT phone with a curled cord that the PSC voters would probably like to trade their cell phones in for.
Right on. Put my profits into MCD. They are 80% franchised. It is down today on bad comps. Good time to add a few shares. USF is like the bankrupt airlines operating at a loss and ruining the market for everyone else. Someone else will come in and step into USF's shoes.
USF was never a great company and they basically operated as a second rate SYY imho. I don't see how this deal can go through with the interventionist gov't we now have but good luck to all. I guess if you promise enough regulators some post gov't jobs this deal gets done. We will see.
At least you can see the real man ... a lazy and incompetent man who wasted his Law Review years writing about a father he never met. What a F-up. Then he was a community organizer. Oh yeah ... he was told to hire some business people to implement his Obamacrapcare and he didn't listen to his hired guns. What a moron. He went with his "highly educated" and idealistic idiots instead. Keep voting for idiots like this and we will end up like Venezuela which ran out of toilet paper two times in the last two years or Argentina where they go into your retirement account and take your money and replace it with worthless government IOUs. Nice work morons!!!
Or debt repayment and divs. Plus Savvis is gaining momentum and now with Tier 3 and the move to Seattle for CTL's headquarters the traction should really start to pick up.
Cool. Last year I lost bnsf and heinz to brkshire. My list keeps getting smaller.
Took the quick money. Happy Holidaze. Maybe WEB buying it out? 70 bucks on Mon morning probably.
We need a shareholder resolution to limit stock options for managements like this. They cannot be trusted on their own in my opinion. They need some guidelines to rein in greed. These were old stock options granted when the stock was much lower. This last year they weren't too bad but of course they know the stock is up.
The Official Back Patter Award. You got my back and I got yours. Opreah will be giving him an award next week.
Please stay out of the lives of the employees. Pay them to work and then end it there. Explain to them that is where it ends and stop trying to justify yourself. Explain that it is business and they are free to stay and enjoy their employment or quit if they like.
If you don't like your wages do what Ray Kroc did ... risk everything you have and start your own restaurant and then pay yourself whatever you think you should be paid. This entitlement #$%$ is so stupid that any elementary grade student that knows simple math can tell you why you are not getting paid more. I am an owner and I want to pay market rates. I don't want to pay you whatever you want to be paid or think you should be paid. I risked everything to make enough to invest. I worked 80 hours a week or more and didn't take any holidays. I didn't get to see my kid grow up because I was always working. Now you stroll in and think you should have what I have? Really? BTW I slung pizzas for my first job and was grateful to have anyone hire me.
Not for steel production and for the Chinese. Only stupid greenies want to kill off humanity to save an insect or plant.
More like Digital Equipment ... but gov't is worse because gov't is making you buy #$%$ with the use of force. The gov't can't run a website but you voted for gov't run healthcare? It is already 60% gov't run and that is why it is so expensive. Obama is driving a broken down train off a cliff and the foolishness of the ignorance of basic grade school math by both the electorate, the proletarians and yokels and the politicians is sure to put on a really really good show. The entertainment is non-stop. Worse President since Jimmy Carter. I think I will set up an irrevocable trust and get some welfare for myself. If you can't beat them join them.
