    Still no warning 2 days before earnings ?

    by redposition Apr 22, 2014 6:11 AM

    Vacuums help create fear.
    Fear begets selling.
    Selling leads to more selling and lack of buying with a falling SP.

    If in doubt, listen to the recent "board chatter, as of late".
    It is filled with more speculation and "what ifs' than usual.

    Are There Two Class Action Lawsuits?

    by finance123412 Apr 17, 2014 6:29 AM

    GNW's recent retrace is almost an exact corresponding SP percentage to other insurance stocks I own and follow ---that also retraced at this same time. Though it seemed like a news driven event because of the lawsuit, I believe it was in parameters to the overall sector and market decline. Coincidence.

    These lawsuits are unavoidable IMO and "the cost of doing business' in today's marketplace but still a negative, as for their legal defense cost and this loss of cash that could be distributed to shareholders. However, this too shall pass.

    Cheers for good quarter divisional earnings and to our present management team that is doing a terrific job navigating GNW forward. Stay the course, good things to follow, IMO.

    I agree with you Mike, these things take the necessary time. It is, what it is.
    Most longs here IMO , including myself are dissatisfied (understatement) with SP valuations and progress. Hence the normal and justified dissatisfaction with management and decisions, or lack of.
    Welcome to the market. One can be patient and just wait, trade---buy or sell your shares shorter term, hedge with options or just move on to another investment ----or a combination of all the preceding.

    When and if it does change for the positive, I expect the SP movement to be fast. There will be no time to enter a trade very cheap.

    11 Days to Cover

    I agree management should address the short position---especially if it becomes a percentage where normal trading is inhibited. It signifies from a news point of view that something is wrong and many will stay away until it is resolved to avoid stagnation and falling SP. Whether the shorts have truth or value in their position and outlook is another entity, it still affects the trade and ultimately the company perception. Bottom line---they need to do more.

    This short percentages is not new either, we have been in the stratosphere for a very long time, albeit with blips where they reduce for a while only to re short again at a slightly higher level---say post earnings, even when we beat expectations. As of the present, management does not address the shorts. Cheers for a change of the MO, it would help, IMO. Perhaps Cas's input will serve as a catalyst for that change.

    Only positive, IMO---it lets us little guys buy cheap shares.

    Relax, just how it is at the moment. With the exception of a few new comers and some bashing shorts (put on ignore), most present shareholders in RIG are under water---including Icahn, most funds, retail and of course myself. Some good news or decisions and RIG can fly upwards. Meanwhile the dividend is substantial and there is certainly room for future improvement in the sector and company.

    Good honest post, thanks.
    Cheers!

    Why should anyone buy this stock.

    rpschom rpschom Apr 15, 2014 12:57 PM Flag

    The future: earnings improvement, good news will lead to a tremendous short cover rally and soaring of SP, positive decisions from management/Cas for increasing shareholder value, world growth and need for iron ore, good turn around play from previous management's poor decisions, discount to BV, respectable dividend (possible increase), heck even a partial or total buyout at these valuations, etc etc.

    But those are the reasons for what WS pays a percentage of their lobby money to our politicians.

    How they both get very very wealthy.

    Why would they want to change such a very successful and profitable "working" relationship.

    We are not alone.

    HIG GNW PRU LNC MET CNO and others all down substantially these past few days on well above average volume, especially today. No news, IMO. Sector/ market related and driven.

    Usually a sign of institutional selling and shorting to clear out stops, free shares up for institutions to add or initiate at cheaper levels and others to take profits. They have all had a terrific run this past year. In CNO, they might be testing our previous break out level in February at about 16.20. Also near the 200 sma. Just some thoughts,.

    That is exactly what they want us to feel---hopelessness, fear, panic and confusion. Sell sell sell, run run run----all will be lost, oh no------------- the sky is falling!!!

    Of course, they are buying while the others are selling. They are also covering their short and going long in the trade.

    Hold your nose on days like these and average into a position. It usually is not possible to get the exact bottom but when the tide turns to the upward-----when the big players have already loaded their boat----the ship will leave port and run up quick. if it does go lower save ammo.

    On my screen and analysis of the insurance stocks I own and follow they are all down % proportionately and the charts correspond for the most part. I do not know the exact moment---but when the big players switch to the long trade algos---it will be fast and furious.

  • Near 16 this morning. I was hoping they tested that level.
    Sure we might go lower but a great long term hold and add, IMO. Still a terrific valuation turn around stock---improving divisional earnings, great management team, cheap to BV, improved ratings post IPO, eventual return of dividend, even higher interest rates, etc etc will lead to increased shareholder value.

    Staying long and strong---buy the fear, panic and irrationality on days such as today!.

    Cheers to all fellow longs!

    These are great times to add or initiate a position, IMO. Take advantage.

    This sell off is market and sector based---not CNO driven. We swim in the same water as all the other stocks (hence the decline) but the fundamentals in CNO are strong----- as in the the history of our quarterly earning results with a excellent management team.
    CNO will bounce back quickly, as in the past. Even the Forbes article is positive reinforcement for a alternative opinion.

    True, this is always disconcerting to watch SP on days such as today but buying this fear, irrationality and panic on quality stocks will prove in the longer term to be very successful.

    Cheers to Success, Joe and all fellow longs!
