I don't believe he ordered anyone to do anything and that is the problem, I'm a democrat but OB. has dropped the ball pretty much wether it is from flustration in his inability to get things done from the GOP stagnation plans in affect or he is just that inept in knowing what his left hand is doing when he is working with the right, don't know but the country needs a leader to get America's middle income back on track or we are in for a complete collapse from social / economical stability IMHO.
You can only blame racist or R for so much but the IRS, and news media debacle, coupled with giving bags of cash away to the afgan Prez, Begazi etc. leave one a bit sceptical on the course America is on.
No real infrastructure, bigger split between rich and poor with the middle crashing, healthcare falling apart, SS, Medicare in serious trouble, lack of oversite on bringing jobs home to the states, "NO" Tax Reform, "NO" Campaign Reform, "NO" Lobbyist Reform, "NO" Immigration / Border solution passing, and Totally - O - across Party lines co-op leave a bleak picture for the next couple years. ( Wars and the threat of Wars - ad total chaos in the middle east and a major drought in the mid-west (Limited food growth) and doom and gloom is a major reality TV show coming to a city near you! HANG ON IT-A-COMING!
Agree on PR people, promotion is key to building a company and especially in America from China Co, PR is greatly needed.
I would also start to look at the areas of America that are the Forbe's fastest growing areas and buy up land in those areas and start to build a few sm. single family homes, coupled with one floor plan homes since there are many new boomers (10,000 a day eligible to retire) and many are retiring and want the one floor plan.
One area listed via Forbe's is NE Ohio, 5th major growth area , and with the shale, oil / gas boom is a key areafor housing expansion , land is very reasonable there now (not like NY / Cal premium cost).
Also check in the mid-west booming gas / oil areas to build short term housing for transite high paid construction workers for those type jobs, also Ohio is building 4 major casino type resorts at key places to contain the loss of revenues to other states in the gambling (service) industry, growth here means smaller lower priced housing but profits can be made via catering to the masses as China is use too IMO.
How about you putting a limit order in to buy at $8. a share then the PPS would jump up tp your price
You said you wanted some ideas didn't you?
There is a story on cnn money about china cracking down on military lic. plates and the reasoning behind it, here is a few paragraph on the subject matter; after I read it I was surprised so many chinese gov. officials and people had so much loose cash to buy all these high roller cars.
According to the new regulations, military plates are now prohibited on Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Lincoln, Cadillac, Volkswagen Phaeton, Bentley, Jaguar and Porsche models. SUVs including the Porsche Cayenne and Audi Q7 were also singled out.
Put more broadly, the plates cannot be used on cars with engines larger than three liters, or a value over $73,000. To accomplish the change, the army will issue new plates designed to stop counterfeiters, and collect all previously-issued plates.
Some plates were sold to private owners to get around parking issues and to skirt check points, toll fees etc.
They also discussed the wide spread corruption in China.
SOUNDS LIKE CHINA IS GETTING CAUGHT UP TO THE USA'S WALL STREETERS IF NOT PASSING THEM UP ON WAYS TO GET AHEAD. SOME FORM OF CAPITALISM IS ALIVE AND WELL IN THE PEOPLES REPUBLIC OF CHINA EXCEPT THEY FORGOT THE PEOPLE AND IMPLIMENTED INDIVIDUALISM - IMO.
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ SAME OL - SAME OLD!
Like the Dip- Imunity (Can't touch me) plates in the USA -
There has been radicals in all major immigration factions that came to america, the irish had them when exploited into the mines, the poles had them, the jews had a group that hated america, if all come here and all don't adjust and asimulate then you have potential for a spin off radical group. That said ;
Unfortunately america has started down a negative slope via the increasing seperation of classes, rich and poor the middle is dwindling to the point you will see more disgrunted and radicals in the increasing poor, many that can't provide anymore with just start to take, the very rich have not reinvested their spoils within the usa but rather taken it into shelters and overseas companies leaving more and more jobless or insufficient wages to maintain their life style. I predict in 10 years a major uprising or even splitting of states / groups of people and america entering the same problems plaguing the rest of the world with split unrest internal strife.
PS - Has anyone on TV / FBI / HLS / CIA ask where does 2 young partial students getthe money for funding all the equipment, vehicles, guns, bullets, B making material designer cloths yet claim to be just students struggling to get and education, follow the money trail and you will see where the leaders and sponsors are IMO. The FBI interview the older brother in 2011 from a report of radicalish link via a russia org. then went back to russia to stay in a village where his father lives and the leader of the radical russian islamic group is from, links there are planty of them if you take the time to do DD (analysis again IMO)
China: Housing prices rose in 68 of 70 Chinese cities in March when compared to the previous month, according to the National Bureau of Statistics. Compared to the previous year, prices were higher in all but two of the same 70 cities.
Prices in the capital, Beijing, registered one of the largest increases, rising 8.6% over the previous year. In the southern manufacturing hub of Shenzhen, prices jumped 8.9%.
This should play well for this Q's earnings, but possible next Q may be down because of Gov. action - either way I see this pull back as a great buying op for those that want to add to their position or get their feet wet and enter the XIN action.
GLTA that invest in XIN / even the shorties cause they are going to get caught soon IMO with their pants down and their D*** in their hand.....................
Look into XIN real estate, pay good stable div. so far, great eps, and P/E own both china, Las Vegas, and NY properties expanding ; been in them since 1.93, now 4.70 been up to 5.95 but I sold off a lot to gain profits. Something that is taboo to cdii for now. Got hoodwinked on cdii myself and would like to get out, sm. position but still a few grand wasted right now.
Make em pay for controle and get the PPS up !
I have family living there, they are having some bidding wars on properties and homes pushing the prices above the ask on the good properties and some foreclosures are getting pricy now!
Better check the facts, and this isn't saying xin is one of those properties but the real estate mkt. is starting to churn higher demand and prices in all sections of the country, Cal. Ohio, LV, NY etc.
Very little interest in cdii, company mang. is bilking the remainder of the cash (IMO) and just sitting around waiting for the sun to go down so they can turn out the lights and go home.
Anyone that still holds shares are left over from high priced ones in hopes some return or magical surge would of taken it up so they could get out and recoup some of the loses...........
Another one bites the dust, Chinese stocks are on a roll of going under of being exposed as one big scam to the American Mkt. but then this is just my opinion, facts I have none only guessing.........buyer beware?
It isn't the president that counts right now, focus needs to be on taking control of both houses and that is the way to stop all this grid-lock BS.
All I hear on the news is Gun Comtrol , Violance, and Gays issues, and the dwindling Middle Class (The engine driving financial force of America's economy) is left to wave in the wind.
Till the focus is placed on Infrastructure, Jobs, and America for Americans and stop this world police, domination attitude "The America of Yesteryear is in Serious trouble"
Get a letter from Farmers Bank and watch what happens to the PPS ; we have already lost value and the vote hasn't even happened?
By increasing your available share pile all you do is dilute your value and possible limit the amount of payout on dividend which has already been cut drastically with all these add on companies (Ins. and Broker) from a few years ago ; but the exe. get bigger salaries and bonuses down the road.
Should you keep this a Ma / Pa Local bank or enter the big market place and deal with the overhead, and problems associated with that and the greed that naturally follows big business - it is up to your vote?
Think before you vote and get informed answers of the potential outcomes - IMHO!
When you have someone that is that associated with the company investors should of held off selling so soon and make them pay for what the company is worth, " concider the real estate" alone and the property mkt. is coming back?
Think before you dump your shares?
BkRptcy, Is this suppose to somehow taint XIN ; ?
That said ; my reply to your announcement : Companies do it all the time ,take the money and run screwing the investors - that is our system of gov, good or bad? Cities are now learning that is is just as easy to screw the Taxpayers and companies the same way.
People need to be able to sue companies for losses and take the bonuses and win-fall money given out going back for 3 years to re-coup their losses ; or just write it off and move on, your pick ; My Opinion!
I disagree ; It will create a buying opportunity for those of us that can see into the crystal ball of the great increases we will receive when the market comes back up (markets always have corrections and #$%$ day down turns that is the nature of investing)! LT insight is a key factor to make money unless your a short / caller and play the day trader game. All make money and all lose money again the nature of things.
Big money waiting to be had here in XIN................Just my opinion.
Story is dated April 1 1254am, so it isn't old news, over at cnn money under drop down world markets, then international news. It is always good to cross check news about a place where you have your money invested, listening to a weegee board chatter and not investigating a legit news article can be costly, but the its your money not mine as I like to do a good job on DD. I hate losses because I was too lazy to check it out.
You better read this story if your in XIN or HGSH - IMO !
It is a new story over at cnn money about two cities have been strapped with new rules on loans financing etc in the housing mkt via the chinese government to cool the resent up tick in prices and speculation.
I would of posted it but the new Yahoo Board eliminated it yesterday when I cut and pasted some of the story and web address.
I'm long XIN and have been here for some time, orig. bought in at 1.94, now my shares left are averaged in at 2.07 - I have no recommendation to buy / sell or short / call I just like to info. so the investor can make up their own mind.
Me I'm staying long on XIN but HGSH , I would be worried about a major down turn, keep a close eye on it if your over there on that stock.
I'm now not so sure the family really wants to buy the company in my honest opinion, reason is just look at volume, if they were serious you would think they would be buying up the lower priced shares then the offer price but it doesn't appear to be happening.
With that said; what other reason would they have to make and offer, could they be playing the market and shoring up the PPS via a placed offer but in reality not really procedding with the terms?
It is alful strange no more is coming out about this supposedly bid of $17.+ and the share price is staying in the low $16. dollar range. (?) Very odd buyout proposal at the least.
I thought at the beginning the price was too low being offered and waited for it to rise to the offered or just above price but that isn't going on either, with totally no interest and the family not coming forward and no share activity I think this is just a dog and pony show for what ever reason (?) " you pick one cause I can't"?
Great HGSH is up so much, Do you think your on the wrong board and stock then?
It's OK to come here and post about your HGSH stock but when you trash XIN it leave a window of questions of your motive and possibility your just here to trash XIN cause of being a short or wacko for some apparent reason.
If you don't like xin don't invest in it or waste your time with it - in my opinion...............
That's OK, just file wipe out the shareholders invested money and change the logo to Whoopie Towel Co. Mfg. of the great Cheering Towel.
Wall St. does it all the time ,
Hey lets all start a Co. pay ourselves enormous saleries hiring each other on the board file and whipe out the investors , Oh No - if you planned the scam it would be illegal but the sec and courts ok hundreds not planned (?) Sad how the Gov. always protects the greedy SOB's at the top, look and the housing crisis, no one in jail yet or even prosecuted !
