I won this thing. Have for a long time and a lot of profit.
But I simply tried to tell you all that when you have Jim Cramer and Walter Spracklin upgrading and pounding the table, it's probably a bad sign....because they're complete idiots.
Et voila, putzes.
Pretty hard to claim that a dramatic turnaround is well underway when the angry finger-pointing and punish-the-guilty is still very much in vogue. The shareholders' vote verified that in spades. Could be an indication that there'll be a lot more stock dumped at any modest sign of strength.
For those still looking for a 'hockey-stick' rebound, I repeat: don't hold your breath.
Right on! To be fair about this, I'm pretty sure that if a middle-class income earner walked through the door, they'd fleece him too. There just doesn't seem to be that many of those available, for some reason....oh well.
You again. Just the name change, or a sex change too? (Because its clear you really need some).
Despite your inability to communicate in decipherable English, I will respond.
They opened 125 stores because they bought and cherry-picked a former chains best locations. You make it sound like they ran around building new stores......a completely clueless assertion.
THe problem had nothing to do with the number or location of stores....it was what was in the stores (more corrctly...what wasn't in them), and at what price. Simple. But because of the terrible brand damage done in its customers eyes, not simple at all to fix.
You're a naïve (perhaps illiterate) cheerleader...but at least you've heard of Target Canada, which is more than half the TGT fans around here.
TGT management is spinning this downward revision as due to the infamous data breach.....a one-time event from 8 months ago, an event more the fault of IT staff and outside consulting firms than it was TGT management. Though they say all the right things publicly, they all sleep well at night on that one. .
The ACTUAL material issue today ---the mess that TGT Canada is in ---- is still being downplayed. THAT is the 800 lb. gorilla that could very well bring TGT down into the crosshairs as an M&A "Target"....
And that one can be laid directly at the doors of the executive suite....which is why they prefer not to talk about it.
Continued denial is not the best strategy right now.
Repsol is only interested in SE Asian assets...the only currently cash-flow positive asset TLM owns. They will also be forced to take a disportionate amount of TLM's totsal debt, or else TLM's lenders won't agree to the deal. Which means the net offered price won't be that generous. And TLM will be left with very little of any real value.
"Overvalued" companies don't get the luxury of doing such deals.
You know, for shareholders (like yourself obviously) who might actually pay enough attention to the affairs of the companies they own to be in a position to make informed voting decisions, there IS a much more direct, simpler and elegant solution you can implement by yourself at any time...no meeting required, no delays.
It's called selling your shares and buying something else that you think is better. Amazingly empowering.
First, they admit losing $5.5 million in donations speculating on currencies (...isn't that just what the "evil 1%" all do?!?) and now it's revealed that one of their senior staffers has been commuting 600 km to work by commercial airlines....because "the train is too slow".
The arrogant, self-righteous hypocrisy in the rarified air at HQ is one thing......but when they finally emerge from their "green comas", the brainwashed rubes who spent their summers canvasing for these shills will really begin to see what manipulated fools they are.
"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.”
....and I'll steal a fortune from all those sorry, stupid fools as the government shuts its eyes.
God Bless America.
"Coffee drinkers who choose brands carrying the Fairtrade logo are not helping the poor and the “ethical trading” claims made by fair-trade organizations are hollow, according to an in-depth report into the employment practices on coffee, tea and flower plantations in East Africa.
Research published by the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) at London University reveals that workers at Fairtrade certified farms are paid less and suffer inferior working conditions compared with those working for non-Fairtrade farms."......
....."The report’s conclusion will come as a shock to consumers in rich countries who pick brands carrying the Fairtrade logo, supposedly supporting the earnings of family farms and small-holders by paying of a “Fairtrade premium,” helping them compete in a world dominated by large plantations.
In Ethiopia, the survey found that 30 per cent of Fairtrade workers earned less than 60 per cent of the median wage, compared with fewer than 5 per cent of non-Fairtrade workers. The researchers found that the best-paid workers were producing non-Fairtrade commodities."......
So there. You pompous, reality-ignorant rubes.
