Ah. c'mon Stevie...have the guts to leave your posts up. Don't wuss out.
And don't try hoping to think of something more clever...that ain't happenin'.
Let it out, pal......I'm here for you. For now.
Thanks for the explanation Steve.
You do it just because you can. And obviously rank this as your life's higher purpose.
So...it's up today because KSU revised that warning?
Nothing makes any sense anymore...arrrggghhh.....
1) That drivel has precisely nothing to do with my post, so post it as a reply?
2) If you had any rationalization to go along with your premise, you could lend some credibility to your prediction.
3) Good luck, pal...this casino loves guys like you.
Stability?! That's virtually the entire risk in the stock, Einstein.
The Canuckistan government could go to work Monday morning, declare railways to be a public hazard, and completely re-regulate Canadian freight railways in a heartbeat. And I wouldn't be surprised in the least. They have a long history of economic intervention made in complete ignorance of the consequences....as long as it makes the average voting socialist putz on the streethappy. "Down with greedy corporations!"
Just ask the shareholders of Potash Corp how that's all working out for their invested money the last 2 years....
It's down because the thing it sells is now worth a lot less than it was.
Being "excellent" didn't help Betamax.
Sure. You should write a book: "Secrets to Ruling the Markets: #1 Skip Lunch"
You poor, pathetic putz.
I have heard there's a raging debate whether to actually close the exchanges for an hour every day, so that everyone can get a healthy sandwich, pick up dry cleaning, and maybe have a nap.
But first, they have to put the entire internet on one time zone.
Putzes grasping at straws are hilarious.
Legal case squashed, but the disinfecting power of sunlight has done its job, and the market will now take the "internal affairs" approach to this POS.
No 'gap back up" to $80. Or even $40. Hunh.
Really? This was put you all into a state of complete euphoria?
Ackman has hardly been secretive, or even discreet, about his actions, his intent , and his ultimate goal.
Insider trading?! Someone please explain what the risk/reward rationale of that would be....vs., say, the accusers' wild desperation in tossing it over the wall.
If you half of a clue, you'd research which companies have the highest debt ratios and highest operating cost of production. THOSE would be the best candidates to short.
But you're not. You're just another idiotic putz with a computer who doesn't know #$%$ from chinola..
CP just enacted an "advance notice" requirement for nominations to the board. At first blush, it sounds fairly innocuous, being described as simply a requirement that all CP shareholders get a sufficient "heads-up" that something other than a rubber-stamp process will determine the board for the coming year.
But in truth, the primary beneficiary of this rule is the incumbent board itself, who will now never get 'blindsided' by the naming of new nominee(s), and can use this extra warning time AND THE COMPANY'S RESOURCES, to lobby large shareholders against supporting the idea of change and/or even individual nominees.
There is a widespread problem that infects almost all boards. They get very comfy. They get seflish. They can even become corrupt, in that they no longer act for the benefit of shareholders. THat's what happened with the last board, and it took a long time, a courageous instigator, and boatload of money to displace them.
Now I'm not sure if this is definitely a sign that this is the first step down that path ..... but it sure raises a red flag in my eyes. In my experience, self-preservation is not a priority that has produced much good, in investing or politics.
The mayor of Vancouver just flip flopped on his stand with CP on its Arbutus lands, clearly appearing to have abandoned his (failing) legal challenges, and wanting to settle on a price
Vancouver, for those who don't know, is one of the most expensive locales on the planet to own a piece of residential land (no joke...Google it). Ignoring how that could possibly be the case in a palce where there are very few good (let alone great) jobs whatsoever, suffice it to say that real estate development, and every ancillary service associated with it (carpenters, surveyors, lawyers, appraisers, bankers, landscapers, furnishing salesmen, , etc etc etc) represents a major proportion of the entire employment base of the lower BC mainland. It is a bubble the likes of which the U.S. cannot fathom, even with the hindsight of 2007.
And the City of Vancouver operates entirely on the money it receives every year from taxing these properties, based on their bloated market values. A very lucrative operation.
But you can't have it both ways, Mr. Mayor. If you want to drop the assessed values on every resident's property, and then make an offer to CP based on a lowered value, then do that. That would be equitable, consistent, and fair.
With this current policy of two-faced BS, you're sucking and blowing at the same time
(BTW...If you wanted to screw over a dufus of a CEO into handing you something this valuable for peanuts, you should have struck a deal with the last guy....this one is a tad sharper, doesn't give a rat's RRRS about politics, and works for the shareholder. Sorry.)
