Actually, they only thing they really mine are the suckers pay the officers whopping salaries-- CEO: I.7 million plus.
In my view, the only possible buyer is China. If they had wanted it, they would have done so long ago--but even they don't see mine value at any price.
Frost is still sulking from Mitt Romney's loss to Obama. He threw big fund raisers for Mitt at his FL mansion.
I suggest It's because of the NYTimes piece on serious issues involving India's drug industry, big competitors to Teva. FDA very unhappy with what they're seeing in India. If Teva keeps its nose clean, it stands only to benefit.

Great name Fausto--not many CFOs with that first name and not many leave so soon. Welcome to the team, Veramodo
Politics apart, working for Apple contractors in China is a choice and a way of improving one's situation; in Eritrea, it's forced by the Government-owned contractor as part of so-called military service of an undetermined term. That's part of the reason thousands of Eritrean boys and men are languishing in Italy, Israel, Sudan, Ethiopia and other countries to escape indentured servitude.
Canada expelling Eritrean diplomat for using consulate for fundraising
TORONTO — The Consulate General of Eritrea in Toronto, the African country’s only diplomatic outpost in Canada, has long been accused of running a collection racket set up to finance the regime and its armed forces.
As the National Post first reported in 2011, the consulate was acting as a fundraising front that solicited a 2% income tax and a $300 to $500 “national defence” fee from Eritrean expatriates in Canada.
On Wednesday, Ottawa moved to shut the scheme down, ordering the expulsion of consul Semere Ghebremariam O. Micael over his persistent efforts to use the consulate to violate a United Nations military embargo.
The expulsion order followed a government investigation that found that, months after Canada had ordered him to stop, the Eritrean consul was continuing to solicit money, some of it explicitly for military purposes.
The scheme was considered illegal because the UN Security Council imposed sanctions on the Eritrean military four years ago over its ties to armed groups in the Horn of Africa, notably Al-Shabab, a regional affiliate of al-Qaeda.
Eritrea is "stable" in the sense that possible change in the status quo would be one general replacing another. Thousands of able-bodied Eritreans have fled what amounts to lifetime conscription, many dying in drowning or thirst in trekking through deserts.
Those who have made it to the US--they number in the tens of thousands--are still held hostage by the generals since they are required to turn over funds monthly as protection that their familly left behind won't be harmed or harrassed by the regime. You have to know an Eritrean here well before he will acknowlege this blackmail. The regime has its "turncoats" here as well.
From Human Rights Watch 2013 report issued this week:
Conscripts allegedly provided forced labor to construct infrastructure at the Bisha gold mine, Eritrea’s only operating mine and a major source of revenue. Although the Eritrean government had agreed with the mine’s principal international owner that no national service conscripts would be allowed to work at Bisha, it required use of a ruling party-controlled contractor, Segen Construction. Segen makes widespread use of conscript labor and there is evidence that it did so at Bisha as well. Escapees told Human Rights Watch in 2012 that they worked 12-hour shifts and endured dangerously inadequate food and housing conditions. They did not complain because, as one escapee told Human Rights Watch, “we were afraid for our lives.”
Maybe the Generals have run out of fleeing slaves and now have their wives and mistresses working the mines. There aint no able-bodied boys left; escaping, they are drowning in leaky boats or dying of thirst in deserts.
Nevsun has no class. Ashby can pick a nice director's fee but the control is essentially in the hands of the Eritrean generals who run every aspect of that star-crossed country. Every abled Eritrean risks death trying to escape that hell hole rather than submit to forced military service with no end. See North Korea for similar.
Inevitably, when an American goes to an Iranian rug store, he pays too much.
As for Z, it's a crapshoot and I'll keep it on the table.
Trading will give you heartburn and peanuts for profit. Take the all-in approach; you're only young once. This from a guy who owned many of the old IPOs and took quick profits. ZNGA is worth a long-term shot.
"Nattering Nabobs of Nagativism" is a steal from Spiro Agnew, a former Gov of Md, in describing the press. The press has the last laugh when Agnew, then Vice President under Nixon, was convicted of extortion, bribery, tax evasion and a host of other seamy charges.
love your list--great chuckle. I'd probally quarrel with some (gay marriage, self-help (look at the non-fiction best seller lists) but on balance nicely found--or pasted. Only one point to make here; just wait a generation or so and they'll be back as something new. As for Zynga I'll ride with it for boom or bust.
Agree. Momentum itself is a trigger. It has its bumps but the direction seems clear. It will take guts to restrain selling for small profits now. I still think the dam will burst on prohibitions on one-line gambling as states see the advantage of legalizing wagering--much as playing the horses on the internet has been legal in many states for many years now.
surprise me if one or more of the internet racing sites such as Churchill Downs,
Betfair, TVG make a run for Zynga.
