You are correct. Mom and Pop do not own enough shares to really make a difference., With what looks like collusion between the B of D's and upper mgt most of the earnings will go to pay them rather than increases in stock dividend. Think about it. The clouds are very thick so you ca n not see what goes on between them. AJMHOOC........
What I read on the internet, SB, insiders and funds own about 85% of Sprint leaving only about 100 million shares on the open market. If this is true and what you say is true then the pps can easily hit $100/share. Think about it.
Of this 100 million shares that are available I will bet at least half are held by individuals that do not sell or trade their shares very often. This surely cuts into the short selling.
I've tried to convince the candidates that you do not bad mouth your fellow candidates. Condemn them for what they believe and stand for but "bad mouthing" is a no-no. So far almost all of the candidates are guilty. As someone said, "Yes, it is a shame, shame and a shames."
Individuals that adhere to sharia law do not believe in 'freedom of religion and freedom of speech'. None of these billions could be president of the U. S. today, but as more and more enter the country with this belief they can be. Remember we vote here.
Dish and FCC on opposite sides. Dish followed 20 years of precedents at auction. Now FCC says it was not their intent for a company to do as Dish did. Word of law vs intent. Gov't can't have it both ways and survive.
We are stupid negotiators. Iran has given us the shaft. We have promised them about 150 billion dollars if they sign this deal. Iran ain't stupid. Like --Show me the line where to sign. Iran will have an A-bomb with in weeks if they want one, but first they want the 150 big ones.
As a veteran I listened to Trumps description of 'hero'. McCain was a pilot that was shot down and captured. The War had many pilots/crew members that flew many war missions. None of these 'heroes' received the acclaim McCain has received because he was captured. The thing that made McCain a bigger hero was when he gave up a chance to be released but let another prisoner in very poor health be released.... I look upon every vet that served honorably as a hero. Each vet has put his life on the line. Some-lucky; Some-unlucky.
The gov't is trying to raise the standard of living of lower income people by mandating higher wages. Gov't is a failure. What they do with their action is to raise the cost of all goods and services. Give people more money to spend, but the are able to buy less. They fail to consider the elderly on fixed income. Many seniors are trying to exist on less that $1,100/month. Actually it appears the gov't is trying to get rid of expensive seniors by starvation. JMO.
The clouds in my crystal ball are all worked up. Looks like a severe storm. Translated this means something big is getting ready to take place. Could be TMUS or it could mean the entire stock market, but something is coming. Let us hope it is good news.
Dish owns over 50 billion dollars worth of spectrum. Dish must do something with it. The most logical thing is to merge or acquire an existing company. Or, they can lease it out-may not be the best deal.
Again gov't-FCC is defining the rules they have written by 'intent', not the word of the law. I understand that Dish ultimately would acquire much spectrum at a 3 billion dollar discount under an FCC rule, but the FCC is now saying that was not the intent of the rule. I do not believe the gov't should define a law by intent, it should be 'word of the law'. AJMHO
Thanks for the thought. If you are a geologist and you have studied rocks, then you know they are a lot smarter than humans that believe in stupid concepts. Smart rocks have never caused economic problems, stupid humans have.
Both of these are disasters. Those people that believe in 'global warming' also believe that raising the 'minimum wage' is good for the economy. and vice-versa are at least near idiots. Our favorite democrat candidate, Hillary, at this time believes in both. Glory be. If she is elected U. S. back peddles many years. ISIS will be giving the orders. AJMHO..
As a democrat I believe Hillary will be the worst choice for president the people of the U. S. can make. I will not vote for her. If the country wants a woman for president there are a lot of women that would make a great president. Hillary will not be good for the country.
About 16.5 trillion dollars. Most of this national debt belongs to Obama. my opine.
