And I'll buy it when it gets there. sorry, charlie, but there's just something wrong when a company is paying an 11% dividend and the stock price is down 26% inthe last year. If they cut that dividend it's gonna be ugly. Going long is a bet that a dividend cut won't happen.
S & C is in a no win situation here.
there's a saying about old age and treachery winning every time. after suffering my share of hard knocks, I've come to understand that better as I've aged. I'm lined up with Icahn.
naah, it's ackman who represents the worst of the 1%. Icahn represents the best of the 1%. but that's sorta like asking which side of a turd stinks worse.
don't fall for it. too many of you fell for it before. This is your chance to bust it off in their rears
this post is probably the closest one to the truth so far.Bill and Carl could have staged the entire thing - they could both profit. It's the rest of the investing world who will wind up down a few billion bucks.
I'd have to say you're rather emotionally involved for someone who has no financial interest. But you probably aren't lying. You're probably short a lot of shares and are currently weishing you DID own some so you could cover your short. as for me, as I've already stated...I just got in after it tumbled with a token number of shares. I don't do my real investing in speculative stuff like this, but I like to play around with chump change on stuff like this and Vringo just for kicks. Mostly I like to watch arrogant jerks get their comeuppance at the hands of real pros. thanks for making my day!
Yeah falling fast...as of right now its fallen so much it's only going to open 18% ABOVE yesterdays close. Sorry, spinmeister, but you're gonna suck wind bigtime on this one and the longs will have their day. and anyone who has been long needs to stay that way just for the satisfaction of watching you twist in the wind.
hmm...you really sound like one more shorty desparate for some shares with which to cover. probably the same just who was insulting and lauging at longs on the way down. Good luck convincing anyone this time buddy. I think they are gonna break it off in your butt.
I just got into this whole wingding wiht a few humdred shares after the fall and the SEC stating they had no investigation. I'm not gonna get rich but it's really amusing. I'd light my shares on fire right now before I'd sell them to a short who needs to cover. But then I sorta like it when jerks get theirs.
well good luck with that. Generally when people dig themselves into a deep hole it's a good idea to first quit digging, but as Obama once said..."Please continue, governor." LOL
None of them seemed too worried about your finances on the way down. I say break it off in their A~~ and teach them a hard lesson about what eventually happens to liars and manipulators.
subject says it all....
the stock is down over 25% in two days and NOW you say to go short? If you'd said it last friday, you'd be a genius, but saying it now just makes you a dummy.
Sounds like you didn't quite have your ducks in a row to start with. Sorry you had a bad experience but sometimes people don't have realistic expectations. I'm a buyer of WU because as best as I can tell, 25% of the company didn't fall off the planet yesterday, but from what happened to the share price you would think it did. Often we are presented with a situation in which we can think up a million reasons why we shouldn't take advantage of something, or we can just say "thank you" to the great spirit and make our money and move on down the road. This is one of those. Take your pick.
