Thank you for saving us from them, Protector...! They are OBVIOUSLY intimidated by you....
We are eternally grateful to you for your efforts in protecting us from the evil-doers....!!!
Vulture: if you continue your shorting ways with this stock, you will end up as so much road-kill........as did your friends Sheep Protector, Penthouse, and others....
Yeah...and most of us are betting with the house.....
Agree. I was Pres of our college Repub club years ago - as a fiscal conservative/somewhat social progressive - but now that animal doesn't exist in the party....GW DOUBLED the Nat Debt ($5.5T to $11T) by fighting two wars off-budget, Medicare part "D" (without paying for it), and tax-cuts skewed towards the well-off.....but only AFTER he left office did the 'Tea Party' yokels suddenly get concerned about deficits....the party is a mess....
Yeah, I think beth is right & you are JOE are WAY off base on AAPL....that thing is WAY undervalued at - what? - a PE of 13...for a TECH STOCK...?!??? (but everyone loves Amazon with a PE of 1300...!)
AAPL could easily double, and has many "cash cows", unlike most tech cos...
Looks like the CLF message board is NOT the best place to get advice on tech stocks.
Stock - you are obviously a notorious evil-doer, the kind those of us on this board are grateful that Protector is shielding us from...
You cannot counter Protector's carefully crafted ad hominem attacks with your "reason" and "logic" and use of the actual numbers....Protector does not understand such things....
,,,and probably never will....
So get thee back to your - no doubt - Al Aqueda stronghold where you came from,while the Protector dons his leotards and attempts to defend his flock....!
earning were blow-out.
Figured I could buy back a half-point or so cheaper & make some bucks on the maneuver...
But then, earlier today I had an epiphany & said to myself:
ARE YOU CRAZY..?!?
and I cancelled that puppy as fast as I could....!!!
Not taking any chances with something that could hit $35 by Xmas.....if not more...
C'mon skittle. Silly statement. You should know that companies don't just suddenly drop or change dividends willy-nilly. Has to be in severe crisis/cost-cutting mode (as this one was last year) to do something like that...
If he was, then give him a kick in the butt.
No, i guess that would be mean....
Hey, Protector, appreciate your efforts, but the only "oppressed" are the ones who think that this stock -TWICE over $95 in the last 6 years (2008 & 2011) - is NOT going there again...!
The world economy is recovering from the recession, steel & coal demand is rising, and - you will admit - CLF is HIGHLY profitable right now, and likely to annihilate the $.61 3Q profit target set by S&P...NO..?!??
Besides, stockanalyst2013 makes a pretty devastating case against your track record on another thread, right..?
Care to respond...?!??
3% top-line growth can mean something like 15-18% bottom-line growth, when companies such as CLF have cut costs....plus demand for steel, coal, etc., is increasing as world economy recovers....this thing as been at $90+ TWICE in the last 6 years - 2008 & 2011 - and could happen again....
For you goobers who get maybe all your info from Fox News:
There 234 Repubs & 201 Dems in the House.
If Speaker Boehner brought the "clean" gov funding bill to the floor, it would be passed immediately, overwhelmingly... ..there would be 190+ Dem votes & 50-100 (maybe more) Repub votes in favor....
But Boehner can't do that.
He can't because he has to honor the unwritten "Hastert Rule" - named after former repub Speaker Denny Hastert - which states that NO BILL can be brought to the floor unless a MAJORITY OF REPUBLICANS will vote for it.
But the "Tea Party" guys - about 30 to 50 of them (according to former Repub House member Steve Latourette [google him]) have convinced enough Repubs to say "NO" to Boehner vote counters (unless defunding or delaying the ACA), that Boehner is not sure a majority of the party is in favor even if a STRONG majority of the House IS.........
So he is afraid to bring a bill to the House floor which he KNOWS will pass OVERWHWELMINGLY because he is afraid he will lose his job as Speaker. (read lLatourette on that)
The IRONIC thing, the thing that TRULY makes this "Alice-in-Wonderland" is that Dennis Hastert NOW DENIES that such an unwritten rule has ever existed,...!!! (google " Hastert News" or "Hastert Rule")
Insane. This is NOT a 'Washington thing" or even a "Congress thing", but an internal, idiotic "Republican Party thing", and even the Murdoch Street Journal (formerly "Wall Sreet Journal") editorializes that the Repubs are seriously shooting themselves - and the country - in the foot....
"He's trying to put us under communism where all are equal."
Ever heard of this, Tea Party Weirdo??? ------ "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights...that to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed...."
Communism or Fascism do not make "all equal"....only American Democracy does....
...and your people did their best to destroy it the past 16 days....!
Seriously...? You have 20,000 shares....! Isn't that about $460,000..?!?? ....All in one stock..!!!
Either you are not "diversified" very well, or you are a rich ole hippie.... :- )
whisper number was $.85...earnings only $.66....this board was expecting $1.20+....
