Why would Target break ranks. Google will pay on their behalf, but not if they break ranks. Target's amount was a small amount to them. Vringo strong
George should have waited tiill the 1st quarter numbers came out. Ulman should clean up the balance sheet and write off Ron John's failed strategy's, try to get a clean start
Yes Albany, I am aware of that. thats why I stayed away better opportunities else where. Blue hair ladies dont care as long as they get the 5% dividend. Real estate is starting to come back so it should help Rob in Florida. Dividend is nice though.
that happens all the time, focus on the business, Ulman
777, are you from the Albany area? I didnt say it was bad investment, ljust there are other alternatives. So they doubled in size, thats strange, the stock price didnt double. You dont know these guys. Its a safe investment (no investment is safe these days) but price appreciation is going to lag the market. You in for the dividend only or dividend and price appreciation (it should be the latter)
Yes, this company was trying to manage the Florida debacle so they pulled back and maintained the status quo. In other words protect our jobs and salary. I expect more of the same when the numbers come out today. Expect the loss reserves to be reduced and a slight increase in th EPS. Management has no interest in upsetting the apple cart again plus operating in economic challenged areas, and very little challenging competition will result in little movement in the share price. Really none of the big boys want to be up in that area. If you are a stockholder its for the dividend and they know it. What suprises me is they are paying a 5% dividend and management has litte skin in the game. This is a good stock for blue hair old ladies, and price apprerciation is not going to happen. My bell weather stock in this category is JPM, WF and PNC if they do well the MO carries over to Trust. Overall its a safe investment regardless of what Albany guy says. My pick is buy KMP nice dividend and price appreciation. Lots going on there with acquisitions and Rick Kinder is a genius and knows his business. I know a few posters have this stock and so do i. I see nothing but upside for the next 10 years. GL
Dont worry, If Ron goes, he will flip real quick, seen his type before.
There's another reason why the customer left. They just canned 43k employees because of a failed strategy
and management is still flying around in Gulfstreams. Why should Middle america shop there?
Im sure the board has told Ronny his revised strategy better work or changes will be made. If the board doesnt take a more active role they will be sued.
Whats the story about one guy demanding his employees wear one piece of camoflague each day? who cares if he wears neon sneakers. Dude, concentrate on the customer. The people he brought with him from apple may be out soon, if the next quarter is lously. If Ronny goes the new guy will clean house.
Vornado invested in JCP for the real estate. He sold a good piece of thier holdings what does that tell you.
If they spun off the real estate they would want it.
Yes I had to deal with these types over the years. First thing they tell you is you do it all wrong and we will do it my way, he has the vision. They do it their way and it flops. One guy in particular, after the changes were implemented and it was a disaster, the guy didnt know what to do so he kept straightening the pictures on his office wall a couple times a day. Love those MBA types. When business is good they look like heros, when business is bad they dont know what to do. I like hiring SPH's (Smart, Poor, and Hungry). Hope you guys recover and get the customer back.
