I never read where anyone said NOK was buying back the mobile part of MSFT. But, NOK is making a large acquisition, and I believe the comments are that that acquisition includes mobile phones and/or capabilities.
"hold" tight is what I meant to post..."old tight" sounds like either a cheapo, a person with an alcohol problem or whatever...maybe a beer brand
Okay, thanks. I am not fond of how the stock has been trading, but I expect this could be the retail turnaround play of the decade, so I am going to old tight through the year to see what happens.
Please post more about the insider selling you mentioned. Where do you see this information in the past recent weeks or lately?
Not many posters on this stock except for the spammers. That's a disappointment. It would be interesting to hear/read other perspectives on the actual topic. Thanks for your posts.
(Also, I do have trouble sometimes, like now, in posting on the site. Sometimes also I have trouble clicking on a thumbs up or down. Anyone else experience the same? Thanks.)
Spammers. Whatever service you promote looks very undesirable when you intrude on a bulletin board in this way. It makes me far less likely to ever examine it.
Not a great sign.
Why do they want to sell?
I would expect that this size restaurant group would not sell easily. Too large for many private parties and too small for any large restaurant operator.
The company still does not seem to be doing great, has a lot of debt and doesn't own anything meaningful. Unless I am missing something.
Why would the "new team" buy into the company only to look to exit just a few years later with no great improvements?
I agree, wholeheartedly, that this is the right direction for the company. The only way to succeed is to differentiate and security is one of the best ways to do so. It will command a higher margin. Loss or breaches of data are a huge expense, as Target and other companies have learned. So, even if competitors offer cheaper purchase prices on their phones, many will be willing to pay a higher purchase price to buy greater peace of mind with security issues, and reduce the security risk factor. Way to go, BlackBerry!
Because it is human nature to be more risk averse than growth oriented. It's panic time. In the next few weeks, I expect it to rebound.
ALU holders got a fair deal. They end up with a third of the resultant company, so they have earning power of the whole thing and the cash adds to security and growth potential.
Restrictive rules and delays by the French government resulted in a lower valuation for ALU. Every buyer has to look at the flexibilities they will have when the acquisition is complete. Restrictions cost time and money, which reduces the value of the companies operating there. Work rules come at a cost.
Spanish young people are rioting for more and better jobs. Fifty percent are out of work. Yet the young people are not creating jobs for themselves. Why? Too risky and too costly with Spain's rules and regulations. No they see the cost of those rules and regs, if they have their eyes open.
Good luck, longs.
Did anyone else get assessed ADR Fees on their SOL holdings? Mine are two cents per share per year, which seems high, given the value per share. I am curious as to what the rest of you have paid. Thanks.
While I agree that 1,200 shares traded after hours does not a market make, it is odd that someone would buy that much over the trades for the day. I would think a paper carrier would be a bit more judicious with her/his capital.
It is an interesting trade. Does it have meaning? We will see in the next week or so.
But I did learn one thing from your post -- I had the wrong paper routes.
The Baird downgrade, today, seems to be totally ignored by the marketplace, with GCO up over two percent. Granted, the market is also strongly up, today, but a thinly traded stock like this is generally quickly and negatively impacted by a downgrade. So, this would tend to be a good sign for the issue.
Good luck, longs.
