  • 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

    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?

    Cramer reads CAG ingredients and laughs

    Saw that segment too. I think he was trying to rationalize why all the packaged food companies are in such a rut. K,Mondelez,Kraft,etc. He has a professed attachment to the organic/natural food companies. As much as they have grown in recent years,those food companies cannot get over their biggest hurdle; price. Yes, I see the ingredients and cannot pronounce half the names of those but, they will feed more of the world. Besides, just because they are organic/natural the nutrition level is the same. And a lot of them do use "chemicals" in their processing. It might boil down to whether you want no growth and high dividend or high growth and no dividend.

    Sentiment: Buy

    Hate to tell you folks. It's not Rodkin...most of the packaged food cos. have gone stale. The food industry itself has started on a new path. Organic and natural...going away from packaged foods. And people are eating out more then ever before. Slow or no growth is also happening in sectots that contain PG,KMC,CL, and the ilk. Everybody is so enamored with cos. like amazon,tesla,chipolte...high growth companies with no dividends. CAG has a 3.5% divy..don't ever forget that. There is a shift going on in the food industry..let's see how the new ceo whoever that will be decides to handle things before you condemn CAG to its deathbed.

    Dog Tv

    Unfortunately, most overseas equities (at least the ones I follow and own) have dividend fluctuations. VOD,UL,UN,etc. Not to mention almost 85% of RRST is insider owned. Buy back would be interesting.

    ESLT Reinvestment.

    Glad you brought that up Too. Have a small cap Israeli company called RRST. Pays divys but, they don't reinvest. Paid in cash; maybe because of the cap size. Was 5 cents a share but next one in August will be 2 cents a share. Have ESLT on my watch list. Because of recent action in Gaza, they have held up with their products. Might take the plunge.

  • shapiro.sanford by shapiro.sanford Aug 6, 2014 9:30 AM Flag

    I think some of the sellers should calm down and watch one of RRSt newer products...DogTv. It might calm them down. But,it has created an oppurtunity which I will take advantage of now.

    Meeting was supposed to start at 11:30 and was delayed approx. 45 minutes. Reason wasn't stated but it appeared to be a board meeting. For all the board members came out all at once. For the officers of the company were already seated and waiting. They read through the proposals. If you hadn't voted by proxy yet they had you fill out the ballots. 2 people turned in their ballots (idiot me was one of them) and then they announced that the results would be released in 3 days. Meeting was over and done with once it started in 20 minutes. Good luck to whoever won. They got their work cut out. At least they didn't cut the dividend.

    Time of Meeting

    Going to it today. Still unsure of how I will vote.

    Sentiment: Hold

    Going to the meeting on Tuesday. Have never been to a stockholders meeting before and should be interesting. My opinion; at least so far is that in the short term Casablanca would be better for CLF ( and short term to me would be less then 2 years) and in the long term the current regime would be best. But the ultimate decision to me is the price of iron ore and the question is where that will ultimately end up. A higher price benefits the current regime and a lower price benefits Casablanca.

    Sentiment: Hold

    With their good cash flow, can repay on debt and keep the dividend going. Excellent buy around the 28 price.

    You made a good buy. I am going to wait till after the earnings announcement Thursday. It will inch up a little bit till then. And go back down after the announcement. Figured I can add some more at 27.99. The old retailer in me.

    why cant the CEO write simply --??

    Before everybody says rhe world is falling apart...wait for the actual earnings call on the 26th. The dividend is staying intact as stated today. Patience is needed for the long term. Bought it at 16.30 in 11/08 and have steadily added since then. The reinvested dividend has paid off. This could be an oppurtunity for all to add. The food aisle is changing and not just to CAG. I think too many investors in this or any equity have what I call the netflix disease. Everybody thinks their stock should shoot up everyday and increase in value 100% each year. CAG is high in debt and that is being paid down. That dividend will only increase % wise. Let's not go crazy. After took a huge fall couple of years ago, the organics have shown weakness in the food industry, and Whole Foods have slipped quite a bit lately. Tell you what...short CAG and see what happens. Let it hit 28. I for one will be buying. Good luck.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
