I am using this as a rule of thumb, the dividend received should cover the taxes that Finland will take for the dividend and the special dividend, with what is left over is getting pretty much the full amount of the special dividend. Out of the 51 cents, should wind up with about 35 cents per share, look for the dividend to be paid on July 9th.
Stand in front of the mirror and pat yourself on your back, you will then be able to see the only person that is impressed with you.
You are correct, the definitive source is from the company itself, not a 3rd party. Microsoft has not released their numbers yet so there is no definitive way to say whether it lost market share or not. I rank the street in the same category as the Motley Fool, Seeking Alpha, and you.
Give you an example if 100m units sold last year, and company A sold 3.5m, then market share is 3.5%, If company A sold 7m, but 230m units sold, you would say company A was losing market share yet it had 100% growth in number of units sold. You can't say a company is losing market share yet at the same time it exceeded last years growth by 100%. Using % relative to market share without revealing the total number of units in market share is misleading. I can't believe you are so dense as to buy into "the glass is only half full but this year we are using a much bigger glass but we will let you think we are still using last years glass" portrayal. There was nothing in that article that elaborated on the size of the glass thus year.
Spitting out percentages relative to an increased growth in numbers of units without defining what the number of units are is bogus. IBD ought to know better than to mislead and misdirect with providing a more complete picture of factual information, and anyone so willing to take at face value something published with information missing just advertises the fact that you are okay with coming with anything without having all the information.
When it comes to making a profit, one should not be emotionally involved in speculative trading. Either a position makes you money or it don't. There are folks that like to brag like they are the worlds best traders, not sure why they feel the need to type here "Lookee at ME, I made money, you lose money". It would seem those just aren't the types one would care to associate with or know in person. There is nothing wrong in expressing a belief if there is some sort of factual basis to have one.
Verizon should sue the NSA for any contractual losses
Last time I heard, Google did no advertising for Samsung to use Google's Android Os. In addition, I didn't hear where Google invested a dime into Samsung, nor did I hear that Google offered to buy Samsung's mobile division. If Nokia had gone with Android, Google would have just stood by. It was probably pretty obvious to Nokia that Google wasn't ponying up any cash at all. Think Nokia made the right choice but rather late in the game when it did. There would have been absolutely zero dollars from Google, that is the bottom line.
That arcmouse that Microsoft put out is simply one of the best wireless mouses that I have ever purchased for personal use. My wife loves that mouse when she uses it on her Lumia 2520 tablet
GM, don't you think by now that you should stop the outsourcing of parts to other countries and move the manufacturing back into the US should have been the move you should have done long ago? When you outsource to another country, you are outsourcing your reputation, and it certainly looks like a fine job you did, just for short term profits. Isnt it about time that you face up to the fact that globalization has pretty much been a dismal failure?
Looks like T has to drop to get an even bigger yield on the dividend, how low can T go?
The only reason Hussein was taken out was that there was the real possibility once Hussein started to let Euros be the currency that Iraq was going to transact oil business, this would have been the first real attempt to put into place something else other than the dollar as the world's deserve currency.
Exactly what intelligence gathering organization has Germany decided in going to be a better fit to spy on their citizens?
Nokia's estimate is conservative, from what I read that the equivalent streaming media that will be streaming everyday will be approximately 15,000 years worth of High Definition every single day by the year 2020. That is a huge amount of data that will be on wired and wireless networks.
Think Microsoft is innovating under Nadella faster than what the analyst can grasp
WalMart must be trying to upscale brand to get people who have more money into Walmart, but the downside is that Apple is branding itself with Walmart where folks shoo that don't have a lot of money, this is a negative for Apple. What is the average wages of people who shop at Walmart? It's way below the average of people that shop at Costco. The average wage of people that shop at Costco, it's $100k per year, Apple and Walmart, the phone for the working poor. This is negative for Apple, positive for Walmart.
The only thing I whine about is having to pay Capital Gains, unfortunately when I do have to sell, I don't have any VZ positions at a loss so that I can claim a loss. Oh well paying long term Capital Gains tax is a whole lot better than paying short term Capital Gains tax.
Dude, here is a fact, I took ILMN on its trading birthdate of 07/28/2000 @ 09:30 with a birth trading price of $29.88 and forecast thru time where the price would be on 02/14/2014 @ 09:30 and hit $162.85 with confirmation of hours, minutes, and seconds to confirm the price in dollars as well as confirming 16285 cents thru hours, minutes, and seconds across time, then that is where time said the price would be across years. It was spot on and dollars confirmed cents thru Gann techniques. Time does not lie and with the price being spot on and confirmed, I don't how price can be manipulated. Price was where time said it was to be. Its taken me over 9 years and thousands upon thousands of hours to understand how price and time are linked together. This is the last time I comment in public about this.
Here is what do know for a fact is price is linked to time. What appears to be a gap up or a gap down has to with lack of understanding where price would be relative to the non hours of trading. If you take a chart and insert the hours where price was not trading and then put the open price where it occurs on the next open, technical analysis with trend lines running across the time where the stock wasn't trading will provide a clearer understanding of the real trend line that price is adhering to. That will take out some of the mystery of gap yp/down conditions or what folks call manipulation.
