Bush wasn't there to organize America, he was there to be a puppet for the folks that were pulling the strings, ever wonder why he has made himself scarce in the media? You see Clinton quite a bit, but Bush, a waste of human flesh.
If they can deliver Big Data that leverages and span across multiple Big Data repositories then they might have something
Obama is clueless, and as is turns out he was a total failure as a community organizer, if he had any real experience he should have been able to organize the community of America.
Fidelity got the full amounts of the dividends then remitted back to Finland, still a nice chunk of spare change left for me.
I don't plan to participate in BABA when its launched as it will be way too speculative, just make sure you are nimble and quick on the keyboard on that one. You could make out fabulously or be scratching your head like what happened to FB. With the money that BABA makes today, one has to wonder exactly why is an IPO even needed.
nysexxx probably stated it best. Have been looking at some stocks that have the run up going into exdividend, the drop afterwards. During the periods between the ex-dividend and the next ex-dividend date, the lows can hit somewhat significantly meaning that the potential to make a gain buying low during the period and dumping on ex-dividend date or the day before can result in something like 400% more profit than what you get from the dividend itself. No reason to wait for the dividend if the share appreciation is much larger than the dividend itself. Timing is ever thing, but on my Verizon position, why should I have waited on the .53/share dividend when I could have snagged close to $2.50/share in the price appreciation? I have never traded in this fashion but from the limited amount of time looking at Verizon, this appears to be a much more profitable way to trade.
and I think it will be prudent to keep it dry until I figure out where to park that. Even with Finland getting their chunk, thousands left over. Soon I graduate from just getting thousands to getting 10s of thousands when it comes in, my new plan is to become a rainmaker and make it rain money.
It took me 17 years to figure out that we weren't on the same page, we were on her page, it wasn't our marriage, it was her marriage, it wasn't our life, it was her life. When I finally came to a conclusion that if a doctor said she needed one of my kidneys to survive, I was at the point where I would have asked her, "Who do you want me to invite to your funeral?", when I came to that conclusion, I filed.
Don't feel sorry for me, everything I lost I have gained back over a period of 14 years, it was tough for a while but I made it through the 3 times where I almost had to declare bankruptcy. I never let anyone know how financially desperate it was for me, and a couple of years it was rob Peter to pay Paul. The most valuable lesson I learned was how to become financially nimble, not something I would wish on anyone. It was a tough road but I am a better person coming out of the other side.
I have just started my DD, so have not put any money into GNI at this point, was looking at another trust WHX, but found that it was being liquidated in 2015 as well, it was paying 99.49%, so would have run into the same situation. Doesn't make sense to park dollars into something that is being liquidated and and remaining payout reduce the share value. There are some high yielding gems out the that do carry some risk, so one does have to be careful. Me, I watched $750K evaporate because of an expensive divorce and I'll be damned if I am going to start over with the clothes on my back, $25 in my wallet, and the keys to a 10 year old pickup. I visited that country one time in my life and I ain't ever going back there again.
GNI - it appears that GNI may be stabilizing on quarterly dividend payments, averaging around $2.50/share quarterly. I am getting .53/share quarterly dividends on my Verizon position. Same amount of dollars in GNI would be about $6.64 equivalent. GNI is currently trading for about $18.37/share, Verizon is trading for $48.90/share. Would appear dollar for dollar a 421% increase over Verizon could be had. Once I accumulate GNI, dollar for dollar to Verizon, my quarterly dividends could average $29,739 per quarter or $118,959 for a year, assuming everything stays the same. Check out GNI if you are interested in what appears to be a healthy dividend play, do your own DD.
Dude, you need to spend some time researching dividends, helped my wife out, she is making over 19% a year in dividends and getting dividend payouts monthly. I'll hang onto my Nokia shares, it will be for the price appreciation to come, not for the dividends.
I did take some money off the table with Nokia to establish a position in Microsoft, up about $40K in profits on Microsoft.
I don't plan to sell any Nokia, but I am not planning to buy anymore Nokia.
