Apple at $705 per share is equal to $100.7143 per share, it sank like a rock and a lot of folks were screaming for the CEO's testicles, definitely a lot of gnashing of teeth when that occurred.
What you should be paying attention to is whether VZ increases the dividend post VOD deal, if that happens it should be occurring next month. Verizon has been, Verizon is, and Verizon will be a cash cow.
What is the point about endless drivel about Obama when it has zero about which direction the price of MSFT goes?
That Microsoft hit a homerun on the phones. Anyone that has used a Windows phone for a while knows this.
My Nokia Lumia 928 running on Verizon's network, runs as fast as the day I got it and has none of the bugginess that I experienced on the last Android phone I had. The best phone that I have ever had. Microsoft, please keep up the good work, I for one have no complaints.
Grief I don't need, my intuition keeps telling me to stay in some cash for BABA. When FB came along my intuition said stay clear, when FB dropped under $20, it said go buy some but I didn't pay attention to my intuition, now FB is hovering around $80/share. My intuition is telling me to have powder dry for BABA
Took $250K off the table and thinking maybe taking a position in BABA when it gets here. There is a lockout period of 6 months for those that get it before the retail can trade. From what I have read on BABA, kinda curious as to why they even need to be public but thinking that perhaps folks are going to make a bundle before the 6 month lockout period ends. Any of the serious traders here looking at BABA?
Having the ability speaks volume for the flexibility of the device. Personally I would prefer to have the capability built into the device to allow me to activate and use it when it makes sense to me. The ability to attend a webinar, communicate via instant messaging, grabbing emails pertinent to meetings as they occur, and to reference either Word or Excel documents as pertinent, and talk on the same device, I do this on a regular basis several times a day, device is well suited for someone that works at my level, only a lightweight that is not "involved" with large enterprise efforts or major cost reductions that span thousands of servers, you wouldn't have a clue how to leverage what Microsoft has brought to the market, I however do. You probably have time to play games, I don't.
It never fails until it fails, that's why they call a "short squeeze" a "short squeeze"
Do you even have a clue about how Microsoft software can generate the GUIs that can run on iOS, Android, and Windows? Means the mobility app can be written once and generate the client GUI for all three platforms. Perhaps you should quit sniffing your fingers every 5 minutes after checking whether you messed yourself in your Depends.
This would set a dangerous precedence and perhaps the IRS may try to decide it to can tax the profits of a US based company at US tax rates for dollars overseas. Would Microsoft then decide to relocate into a foreign country to avoid the US taxes altogether other than what is sold via retail in the US?
Isn't that the same place where I heard the Federal Prison they built up there has exactly 300 foot of Lake Michigan for docks to unload the prisoners they ship in from Chicago?. Which floor did they put you in, sounds like the 5th floor, the only one I've heard that the "guests" can actually see the water. How much of the Lake can you see from your 3 foot by 4 inch window?
The job report - smoke and mirrors. They claim 200,000 jobs created? How about the roughly 200,000 jobs each month that are vacated by the baby boomers retiring on the average of 10K baby boomers retiring per day? Shouldn't the numbers reflect 200,000 existing positions opened up to replace retired workers PLUS 200,000 new jobs created. The government should be claiming 400,000 people went to work. You best look at the number of folks retiring in this country each month versus what the government reports, you just might find that there are not new jobs being created, just replacement into existing jobs that folks are leaving because they retire. A job filled by replacing a worker that retired is not creating a new job, it is merely filling an exist job. There are no new jobs being created.
The risk of the Ebola virus making its way out of Africa into Europe, Asia or the Americas is extremely low, according to infectious disease specialists, partly due to the severity of the disease and its deadly nature.
Patients are at the most dangerous when Ebola haemorrhagic fever is in its terminal stages, inducing both internal and external bleeding, and profuse vomiting and diarrhoea - all of which contain high concentrations of infectious virus.
(CNN) -- A U.S.-contracted medical charter flight left Cartersville, Georgia, Thursday to evacuate two American charity workers in Liberia infected with Ebola hemorrhagic fever, a source told CNN.
A CNN crew saw the airplane, a long-range business jet, depart shortly after 5 p.m. ET. The plane matched the description provided by the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
