    Europe's largest economy Germany is preparing a big stimulus that is "concrete and soon" according to German Finance Minister Today .

    Wolfgang Schaeuble Finance Minister revealed his push for plans for Germqny to invest "quickly and in a concrete way". Admitted publically in the press that Germany did not yet do enough, and "Germany must invest more" to accelerate growth. The worm has turned.

    See the BBC news site Business pg 19 for the interview with Germany's Finance Minister who revealed this push for a larger German concrete stimulus spending soon.

    The repentant Germany leader shows urgency and concreteness in this move toward Germany and Europe Acceleration.

    August 26 ZHNE at $3.56
    Oct 17 ZHNE at $2.15
    Shareholder Value Change - 58%

    During the conference call Zhone CEO said "I don't watch the stock price too much....it has been in the $3's".
    Question: Is this CEO engaged? Does he care about shareholders? The stock price fell in half since he was named! He is hired to INCREASE shareholder value. Not ignore it as it halves in two months.

    The glitter and excitement this CEO had faded. He hasn't done anything wrong; just hasn't apparently done ANYTHING. Shareholders have seen no plan or action that inspires. Consequently the stock slide to low $2s as investors were bored and weak hands wandered away.

    Zhone CEO needs to get in tune with his company's stock price which shareholders care about, and take action to show steps are being taken to grow this company and elevate it. One analyst covers it.

    Investors and potential interested investors seek evidence of anything to the upside:
    * growth plan,
    * increased funding,
    * customer leads, opportunities, orders, shipments,
    * new partners, or
    * begin to work at a potential sellout deal or hint this is being considered for the right situation

    Investment houses are attracted greatly to stocks OVER $5 / share which is their cutoff level.
    Allowing it to slide to low $2 shows a CEO who SAYS he invested in in it and joined leadership to grow the company to a higher level, but at least so far.....hasn't DONE anything to grow the stock price higher.

    Quite the opposite. So far. Come on Mr. CEO Turnaround show us your stuff.

    Draghi comments from "the Telegraph" news site:

    Mr Draghi, who has all but ruled out further cuts in interest rates, suggested that FULL-BLOWN quantitative easing was an option if expectations drifted down further.

    "The governing council is committed to move forward with other measures depending on the new outlook on medium term inflation expectations," he said on Saturday.

    "Monetary policy remains accommodative and becomes more and more accommodative as we assess our medium term outlook."

  • pro_stock_picker by pro_stock_picker Oct 17, 2014 5:59 PM Flag

    Increasingly likely say two Fed Presidents... indefinite extension based on being data-driven....may become INCREASED to combat deflation (that europe was too putzy to deal with yet)

    Draghi finally doing a Man-Up said more QE is coming within days... including maybe their "big gun"! Markets were positively shocked by it which awoke things this morning. Actual release of it will very much help lift markets.

    American Express Earnings Beat Estimates.

    eBay EPS Beat. Profits are the mother's milk of stocks.

    Big money's Fear-Churn-Capitulation on the market the past two weeks caused caution by rich shoppers the past 2 days..... "We've gotten indications from some luxury retailers over the last couple of days that times have been more challenging," said Scott Kessler, equity analyst at S&P Capital IQ.

    So eBay slightly trimmed 4Q to ensure they meet or beat. Europe-Putin Trade Talks begin now which will likely reaccelerate Europe Trade and economic activity well in time for XMAS.

    WalMart forecasted Revenue growth 3% this year in March was said to be "3% to 5% will be on low end of the range". Now is 3%...much ado about nothing.

    WaMart Same Store Revenue has been flat 6 quarters as company-specific old issue.

    New York Times article this evening describes it. Pasted here:

    But Walmart has found financing that model increasingly unsustainable. Growth in sales in the United States, excluding new stores, has stalled for six consecutive quarters, hurt by slowing customer traffic and intense competition from both online retailers and smaller discounters like dollar stores.

    And while Walmart’s superstores changed the way Americans shop, executives repeatedly acknowledged on Wednesday that shoppers continue to evolve, sending Walmart scrambling to adapt.

    The company is shifting its focus toward smaller Neighborhood Market grocery stores, and it said it would open 180 to 200 of them next year. It is also accelerating its online offerings, and it expects global e-commerce sales to grow around 25 percent next year.

    “Customers move very quickly, and we have to keep up with that customer,” said David Cheesewright, who leads Walmart’s international division.

    Craig R. Johnson, president of the retail consultancy Customer Growth Partners, called Walmart’s refocusing on smaller stores “a step in the right direction.” But he said the retailer needed to step up that shift if it hoped to remain relevant.
