I'm all for opinions..I'm not interested in pilong on for the sake of insulting someone like a thin-skinned baby.
YOu've taken more of my time than you deserve...adios, yutz.
Fun fact: 40% of millionaires drive used cars. Look it up.
Also, you're the kind of #$%$ who doesn't know his RRRS from his weiner..
Jeez Louise...they are called arbs, and they provide the equvalent of "payday loans" to TLM longs in these situations.
Please read a book...at least do something to make yourself look like you might one day even just rent a suit.
Wow....it's great that CSX wants to increase its intermodal market presence in Canada....and for only $100 million! Seems like these CSX guys are frickin' geniuses!
Perhaps Hunter, in his naiive state of thinking he was dealing with professional peers with integrity, explained enough basic things to them that they've now become dangerous...at least temporarily.
1) Hal Kvisle and TLM board: Grand slam home run. Talisman's financial position was eroding into the toilet, even though none of you would ever know that. A miraculous save.
2) TLM creditors. They avoid the messy task of declaring default, pulling TLM's operating lines, and restructuring debt
3) Carl Icahn: bailed out of a ridiculous, idiotically bad gamble (the word 'misunderstood' gives him far too much credit). So he can now go on to his next one.
Commando man: FYI, in the interest of any remaining mental health you might have, you were launched. I won't read anything you'll ever post again.
Maybe, maybe not.
But in the absence of any track record or proof that the people involved have the first clue about building and running company, and are not just a couple of technology goofballs who caught lightning in a bottle, I wouldn't touch this.
LIke everyone else who does this, Carl makes big bets, and he wins 25-30% of the time. Unlike the more professional people in this sector, who take their lumps like responsible adults, he more often pouts like a child. The Eric Cartman of hedge funds.
There's going to be some POed long-term institutional holders of this who lost a lot of money.....so this action was as predictable as the sun coming up.
Some more lawyers make some more money...nothing else will come of it.
This is "IT" for anything retail...Christmas is when everything gets sold.
Especially consumer technology iPods, TVs, computers, etc etc. etc.
The American economy is definitely strengthening, land there's lots of optimism out there.
The insanely low price of gasoline is leaving a LOT of disposable cash in people's pockets.
And yet this stock looks very weak and sick.
So......you are calling for others here to support and agree with your point of view..to band together (a "herd" per your own lingo) and take on a consensus or group opinion.....and all line up on the other side of this to ridicule and shout down all dissenters, whether they make sense and have merit or not.
And this makes you better, or 'right', how exactly?
I see there's a ghost following me everywhere I post.
I guess it's flattering. One day, when you're older, you might develop original thoughts of your own. You never know, right?
TLM managed to get Repsol off the fence and put the pressure on them by beating the bushes and finding an alleged 11th hour competitor in the CPPIB. I don't believe for one minute that they were seriously considering a bid to become the owners of a complex, international energy company. But Repsol did, and that's all that matters.
TLM snookered the vultures from Spain into making a very good offer.
So bon voyage, Hal.....well done, all things considered.
And thanks to KAIROS and all the other self-righteous, ignorant church groups who brought about the ultimate downfall of this company. Your BS stunt sure saved Sudan, didn't it?
