Haven't seen anybody talking about UP's recent big buy back of shares that has been implemented.
I know Smoke doesn't care for buy backs, but this is a very big one that says the shares are cheap at this level. I will buy more shares when we go ex-dividend tomorrow.
Bush in 8 years added $4.9 trillion to the national debt in order to replenish the military that Clinton depleted, in order to wage war against the greatest attack on America. Also most dems forget the recession that Clinton left Bush to start out his term. That is where the Bush tax cuts were created to get the economy back working and it worked.
Now we have Obama adding $7 trillion to the debt in just 5 years with nothing to show for it. The economy is still just trickling along, even though the Fed has added over $3 trillion itself with record low interest rates.
The Liar n Chief can no longer fool the American people.
You prove my point about the left being ignorant. Under Obama, the employment participation rate is tied for an all time low that was set in the Carter administration. More than half the people in this country are getting some kind of government assistance. The gap between the rich and the poor has never been greater then under Obama. Obama has made health insurance Unaffordable to millions now, as he has lied over and over again about Obamacare. This man is undeniably a socialist who does not care what happens to this country, as long as he can ram socialism down this country's throat, which will ultimately destroy it. Now that we see some democrats abandoning the President, maybe there is some hope for our country.
Shanebailey, you use facts and common sense in your post. Unfortunately, the left will never use these and that is why they will attack you for being truthful.
The lefts own scientists in England have come out this month and had to admit that over the last 15 years the global warming has "paused" [in other words cooled]. They do not understand why this has happened and have come up with crazy excuses in order save the hundreds of billions of dollars being spent on the global warming agenda. Polar ice is increasing, but this fact must be buried.
One of the reasons UP's earnings took a hit from projections was from the loss of coal revenues. The administration and the left are stopping it not only in this country but also stopping the export of coal to Asia where they will burn it from where ever they get it. Why can't USA companies and workers get the money and the jobs that we so desperately need in this country?
I remember last year when oteu159 was saying how the US did not have enough oil to sustain itself and we were gobbling up the vast majority of oil in the world. This is the same BS that has come out of this administration and the rest of the hysteric left. That is why this administration has lost billions of tax payer dollars on risky ventures like Solyndra. Their EPA has done everything to stop the use of our natural resources that we have so much of.
Thankfully, private enterprise has kept going despite this adversarial regime.
This is an alert to all the fear mongering left!
The USA is now the number one producer of oil and gas in the world!!
China is now the biggest importer of oil in the world!
Oh, how will the left try to spin these facts that can not be denied!
Stock is down another $3 in AH, after releasing news they will miss estimates by about 11c for the qtr.
They blame "Mild summer weather combined with disruptions from flooding in Colorado impacted coal volumes, and, to a lesser extent, other commodity shipments. In addition, an uncertain economic environment continues to impact intermodal volumes."
If UP is missing estimates, then I believe we shall hear other companies saying the same thing.
Obama just said that he has bent over backwards for republicans since he has been President, in answering a question about his tone towards republicans instead of negotiating with them.
This is from the most divisive, partisan President in history!
He seems so comfortable lying over and over again to the American people..
