    I suspect it will settle a little today. Still up but not quite as much as when it opened. But I suppose earnings will be down a little and might be a better time to acquire. But, I will grab some today and if down, get some more after earnings. I feel that it's future is brighter then its present.

    Cramer just gave us a thumbs down

    He also gave a thumbs down to ESV also. For someone looking an energy service stock like this for the first time... I agree with him. Now is not the time to buy until the price of oil stabilizes. Me personally would buy some more SDRL (long in it now) simply to average down what I already own and the dividend is safe until at least 2016. And as for Cramer; he admits when he is wrong. He does educate the average small investor to the extent it makes it a tad easier for them to understand equities. He probably purposely does not talk about Mutuals, bonds, preferreds, and others like those because for those type of investors the time limit on his show does not give him enough time. Yes, he misses on a lot of stocks because he has to showcase different ones to avoid his show from getting to boring . And let us not forget he is an entertainer. Let's face it...most financial people being interviewed would be like watching a casket warp. To end all of us here, he is human and we all make mistakes.

    Due to changing taste of the American food public, I think GIS scored a home run by acquiring Annie's (BNNY). I hope CAG has a natural/organic food company on their radar. Not only due to changing taste of the public; but also acquring more space on the super market shelves.

    Yes!!! A dividend increase and it will be consistent,too. My financial advisor didn't want me to get this stock...and at the recent downturn..he kept saying sell.It's too small..but you have to keep the faith!
    I kept this one and sold the one he wanted me to keep...CLF. Yes!!

    First, some of it might be the Jewish holiday season....which we are in the middle of now (being that it is hq out of Israel). It has just settled to a more favorable valuation. It's a good buy now. It has mirroed the russell 2000 past months.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Have SDRL declared an ex date for the dividend..can't find if they have. Should of already been declared.

    Sentiment: Hold

    You hit it right on the nose. But with yesterday's news of Tor Troeim leaving the bod gives a slight pause to some. Volume yesterday was 4 times the avergae volume. It dropped almost 7%. I plan to add some more next week, but this time I might use an option call because it is sinking unusually fast. They have said the dividend is secured through 2016.And like you said cutting it 50% would still make it a top seed. Which if there is a cut....more people would leave.....the price would drop...and another chance to add more.If you are long term, it is a buy,but if you are short term it is not.

    Sentiment: Buy

    SDRL is dropping on Russia and downgrades from analysts. Their dividend is ok till at least 2016. And even if they cut the dividend by 50% it is still a hell of a dividend. And at this price.(30.24) a fantastic buy.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • shapiro.sanford shapiro.sanford Sep 15, 2014 9:03 PM Flag many of us can afford a $90,000 car? Not only do they have the application to help paralyzed walk...but they also have a combo sedgeway/whellchair that will assist those who cannot stand to be used around the house so they can stand up. They have a working model of this and should be to market with a 1 1/2 year. Items like the robotic to help walk but the combo item are tools that will eventually be paid in part by insurance and or medicad/medicare. Soon...Tesla will be off of gov't. subsidy and we will see what happens with them. And by the way...tesla took a huge loss today. First of many to come.

    Spinoff the private label at the right price. Makes sense; although I personally feel it needs more time. Spin off some selected brands ( which I favor...the chef,etc.). And add a natural/organic food comapny like BDBD or buy Chobani as an example.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • shapiro.sanford by shapiro.sanford Sep 9, 2014 5:00 PM Flag

    Sold my holdings. Enough was enough. I came in at 2.28 and left at .76. This company may rally yet, but I did not want to take a chance anymore. Enough is enough

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    Is GSFVF playing limbo rock? How low can it go. Down personally 61.49%. I am averaged at 2.28 a share. Am I seeing the demise of a company or the start of something big?

    Sentiment: Hold
