The US cannot afford to sustain a major US military deployment in a weak economy over in the Middle East. Bush did nothing to ensure the US would have a strong economy once he left office, additionally Bush did not have an exit plan for the Middle East either. How can a President support policies that will weaken the US economy while at the same time expect a strong military commitment that we cannot afford?
More like 2 years the price of Microsoft has been behind itself in respect to where time says Microsoft should have been. Price can be "influenced" for only so long and when the time pressure build to the point where "influence" can no longer control it, price movements are explosive and violent. Violent price movements always occur as the trend changes and one would be wise to ensure their trading skills are up to date and they can trade nimbly. Microsoft will be testing the 52 week high per what atmtoy indicated below, one would also do well to look for an exit point between $51/$52, maybe another $4 up from the current levels, that over the short term.
That's the problem with too many folks, they don't take profits when they should and when the price goes down, they aren't existing when they should.
enzoinbath - the hardest skill to actually learn and practice is the fine skill of patience and do not rely on anyone else to give you an opinion that you might be too willing to follow. I have an overall approach with my dollars, it has worked well for me. If you are looking for an approach, have run my approach against a few certifiied financial planners and they have all told me that it is a good one to follow.
Folks get caught up in a trend trading range to the point where they become too complacent. Too bad for those folks that beat their chest while they a lulled into a false sense of security. They are invariably caught off guard, they don't have the cash to step in and buy on a hard sell off and they are confused at what point to take profits and miss those opportunities as well.
Getting folks back into an office may make sense if the core group of people you work with is geographically located together, one would have interaction directly with their team. For companies that have offices all over the US and the team is spread geographically throughout the US, then going into an office, you may not have others from your team where you office is. The ability to have instant chats, conference numbers, and electronic meetings, one can interact quickly with whoever they need to. In the end, it doesn't matter where you are physically located, either the work gets done or it doesn't, that's the bottomline, did the revenue get generated, did the cost get reduced, or did operational efficiencies get introduced?
regardless of what you may say or think, you are totally clueless about Microsoft, oh my. And to think, even after the Wizard of Oz told you the one brain he had went to the better person that deserved it, you just cant seem to get it out of your craw that the Scarecrow deserved it over you. oooOOOOOOoooohhh my my my !!!!!
It is time to buy, averaged across the 33K shares that I hold, on paper I am up average of 52% in profits on PVHO, think the perspective of first mover for next generation of marketing, that being 3D is soon to hit, as to whether Wall Street will view it as such, that is a different matter.
I agree with you, a lot of these bozos are the same ones that if they were in a room where something was mentioned, they'd rush to put it on their resumes and claim they were highly competent in it.
