Let's see, tards have controlled 2/3rds of the gov the last 8 years, 70% of the country has said we're on the wrong track the last 6 years, bonobo can't be seen in public with democrats running for reelection, they won't even admit they voted for him in 2008 or 2012, polls say if they could have a do over Romney would be president, but you and c11moron, the only 2 financial geniuses on this board who "agree" "C will return to $580" have somehow convinced yourselves the financial and societal quagmire the aforementioned tards have us in is the republicans' fault as much as democrats'.
From your rev Wright magnitude ignorance, we can only conclude you need to sue your parents for abuse as much as c11 does. Maybe more.
1. Sure sign you're a bonobo supporting MSNBC watching tard when you claim someone gets their news from FOX.
2. For C to go to $580, over 10 times what it is now, it would have to have a market cap of $1.75 trillion. That's about 3 times AAPL's mc.
Let's make sure we have this straight now,....
.....you think C who earns $10 billion per year is worth 3 times AAPL who earns $40 billion per year?
Is that right? Really????
Are you serious???
Tell me you don't really think this.
Say it ain't so.
$70 is an irrationally exuberant stretch. Please tell me you really aren't too stupid to know how stupid saying C will go to $580 is.
I mean this is alias changing stupidity.
If you're not embarrassed, humiliated, ashamed by this statement, you need to sue your parents for negligence for letting you fall on your head so many times as a toddler.
I mean there are no other options. Go get an attorney and sue them.
Maybe you can make up some of the 90% loss you took on C.
A week ago you said C was going to $70. A year ago you said C would be $580 in a year. That was real stupid.
Tell me who'll be in the white house, who controls the house & senate over the next 5 years and I'll tell you what C will be in the same time frame.
News for ya C11timeloser, the stock market is very much a function of politics, fiscal, monetary, fed,... policy.
I told you several weeks if not months ago, in October C would be $50 +/- $2. I have been 100% right.
You on the other hand said C will go to $580 and have been 100% wrong.
I would suggest you stop complaining about my educational posts like a kid whining about having to do homework and start studying them so you can quit being a bonobo supporting stock market loser.
Liberia's not even the point or the problem. bonobo's incompetence is the problem.
You tards claimed yesterday that Liberia is a US issue because it was populated by slaves that left the US to escape slavery 200 years ago.
A. They came from Africa. They left to go live their lives free of slavery. What they did from that point on is of their own doing. How could their return to the dreary poor disease ridden African life that most Africans seem to create for themselves be a US problem?
B. Let's get the history of slavery right for you tards. The US didn't invent slavery. It was Africans who captured and sold other Africans into slavery. It was the democrats in writing the constitution that didn't want to abolish slavery. It was the republicans who freed the slaves in the US a mere 75 years later. To this day, Africans are kidnapping and forcing other Africans into a life of slavery. And what are blacks, let alone black democrats doing about it? #bringbackourgirls????? Really? That's moochelles, oprah's, the democrat black caucus', bonobo's, jessie jackson, al sharpton,'s, eric holder's,... etc reaction to modern day slavery of blacks?
C. Those that remained in the US should get down on their knees every day and kiss the boots of every republican they see and thank them for freeing them democrat shackles allowing them to enjoy a relatively disease free much better life of opportunity in the US. Well except the ones who volunteer to be enslaved in the democrat's welfare state. Not real sharp these people.
And on the other end of the spectrum, what is the IQ of someone who's never been a slave, who becomes a billionaire in the US and then holds a racist grudge against republican whites for something Africans and the party they support did to their ancestors 200 years ago?
bonobo is in Liberia for appearances only. After the election troops will be brought home. His next foreign policy will go into action the next time he needs dupes like you to vote for tards.
pretend president = pretendident.
Yes the most incompetent "pretendident" in US history including FDR, LBJ and Carter.
bonobo deficit spent on average 8% of GDP for 5 years straight and got on average 1%/yr real GDP growth. That's a loss of 7% per year. (In the 1st Q of 2014, just 2 qtrs ago, growth was -3% because of all of that mild 'global warming weather shutting down the economy'.)
That's complete failure. You can't twist and spin it and say this recession was as bad as the depression and both were due to 7 years of a republican controlled government and its policies, because;
A. it ain't true.
No doc loans are a Clinton legacy. Since 2002 or 3 the Bush admin tried to do the things necessary to prevent the financial collapse, but the dems politicized it like they do and blocked it. Dems took over congress in 2006, 2 yrs before the end of Bush's 2nd term. (Even after the dems took both houses, they did nothing to stop it.) bonobo's 1st 2 years in office they controlled both houses. And they've controlled the senate the entire time. In other words, dems have controlled at least 2/3rds of govt for the last 8 years.
and B. No other president deficit spent so much of GDP coming out of a recession or any time and gotten so little return in GDP growth.
In 1943 FDR def spent 30% of GDP preparing for the war and at least got a return of 25% GDP growth. That's equivalent to deficit spending 6% of GDP and getting 5% growth. Or in terms of bonobo's results, FDR would have to deficit spend 30% of GDP and get 4% GDP growth in return to be worse than bonobo.
Every other president coming out of recession has gotten a positive return on their def spending. But then no other president has tried to def spend their way out of recession by exponentially expanding the welfare state.
Which was/is not unintentional. It's an attempt by bonobo and the dems to use tax payer money to enslave the poor & ignorant to the dem party.
dems are why we need a balanced budget amend't
We know you voted for this POSUS and you may now regret being fooled twice, but no this unpresident is unprecedented in his lying. No lying about it, no republican can match this liar's lying.
He can answer for himself, but I find it amazing that you're trying to spin the employment situation into gold when it's filled with words like "discouraged workers", "marginally attached",... And you didn't even mention under bonobo's new norm jobless economy the counts of the "under employed", "dejected workers", "despondent workers", the "workers having to stand on a street corner asking for help" workers,... What you don't have to count are the "workers who can make more off the welfare state laying at home on the couch watching Oprah than they could at a job under bonobo's economy" worker.
Bottom line wages are down, non-farm payrolls are still below what they were under Bush and ther's 30 million more people in the US. And while we're at it, with 10% more in the population, the GDP just based on population, ought to be 10% higher than it was in 2008. In real terms it ought to be 20% higher at least.
by any measure, bonobo is the most incompetent pretendident in US history.
If we had a real president, the troops being in Liberia, or any other what would seem an odd place for troops, could just be a cover up for a more Eisenhoweresque covert operation.
2 problems with this; 1 we don't have a real president, we have a pretendident, and B. Liberia is still a gazillion miles too far for a quick jaunt into Syria or Iraq should the need arise.
Unfortunately, unless bonobo is planning on attacking Cape Verde, we're left with the horrifying realization once again that bonobo in fact has no strategy when he says "we (I) have no strategy" and is indeed the most incompetent person to step on the white house lawn, let alone sit in the oval office. I mean in the last 6 years there is nothing to conclude otherwise.
"Shorts are losing their tails today"?....."The cockroaches that talk about everything else but Citi are getting abused."?
Shorts took their profits on Wednesday. I even warned longs to take profits on Tuesday.
Let's recap your C calls.
A year ago when you put your entire life savings in C at $55, you said it was going to $580.
It immediately started to fall.
Within the last few months with C hovering around $50 you said it was a bad investment.
When it announced on Tuesday $1.15 earnings, on track to earn under $5/yr for the next couple of years, you said it was a good investment.
In fact you said it was going to $70, misunderstanding what Polini of Raymond James said. Fact is he said that it could be a $70 stock when (and only when) C could project $7/yr in earnings. That's not even on the radar screen.
After your $70 call, the very next day it dropped to the low $48's . That's where shorts covered and and smart traders bought in,..... $7 (13%) below what you paid.
So, so far.... it would appear the only one that's losing his tail and getting abused around here is you. And obviously it's gnawing at the very fiber of your being.
It would appear, losing money isn't a very good time.
That would be a better way to cure the sheet- have the Enola Gay make a couple of fly overs over west Africa, before terrorists use Ebola as a WMD. I doubt even that would give bonobo and the tards reason to close the airports, borders,... Reason isn't in a tard.
Skywalker's signature lunatic rantings of a maniacal mind punctuated with bad punctuation and grammar (I mean beyond the bad grammar punching these things out on a smart phone can produce) are self identifying.
A large part of any comprehensive health care system, especially a tax payer funded one, would logically be prevention.
Pretendident Ebola and his merry band of inept tards are intent on, no not intent on, incompetently destroying what was one of the best healthcare systems in the world by first attempting to cover what 7 million, while uncovering 10 million, US citizens and then actively injecting (as opposed to banning) unheard of diseases from Central America, ebola from west africa, and who knows what else into a now subpar system.
How bonobo's approval rating isn't zero can only be summed up to brain rotten liberalism.
If you like your CDC director, you can keep him.
If you like your infected liberian, you can send him here.
If you like your infected west african, you can send him here.
It's called volatility. The VIX hit a new 52 week high intraday today at 31.06. The volatility is from bonobo's complete and utter incompetence. And of course C is the second worst bank of all the TBTF banks. It completely psucks.
However, having said that, I did buy some C myself when it went below the 5% down point today just for a quick trade. I think it was $48.75. I figure even chitigroup can't hold a 5% drop.
I swear to god if I don't make s profit, I'm going to apply a 15000 year civilization cycle force field gradient to my groinal area.
Yeah, the honor system of quarantining exposed personnel has worked out like,..well,..... any other bonobo policy.
I mean the not closing the Liberian airport from day one worked out well. A foreigner from ebola ground zero was able to come here and spill body fluids all over the place before dying unfortunately a relatively painless death. May his soul rot in he11.
Wearing moon suits with some painter's tape around the exposed necks of the medical staff while treating Duncan worked out well.
The "protocol" worked out well. Well it would have if, it wasn't just CDC throwing nurses under the bus for a rule that should have been in place and nurses trained to follow properly, but wasn't.
Who couldn't have seen this coming? If you like your ebola free city, you can keep it. If you like your normal temperature, you can keep it. If you like your moon suit protocol, you can keep it. If you like your US ebola plague because of bonobo's incompetence, you can keep that.
Not only are they not going to raise rates, but there'll be another QE unless Republicans take over the senate. Even then there still may be QE to counter Europe's QE.
C lost all of it's gains from yesterday in 30 minutes
I thought it was the best value.
At $200/shr, C's market cap would be $600 billion.
Here's a list of companies by market cap from the largest to C. AAPL, the largest with a market cap below $600 billion, will earn $40 billion this year. C will earn about $10 billion.
Facebook, a social website, according to the market is more valuable than C.
Stock - Market Cap (Billions)
buy. Between now and the end of October is usually good timing for the start of the Santa Cruz rally. With oil prices falling, thanks to OPEC trying to hurt the energy boom in the US, stocks whose costs are directly proportional to energy prices should do well,... refiners (crack spreads and therefore profits should expand), utilities, trains, planes, ships & shippers.
Bad News; With C's upside limited to $55 to $57 by the January time frame, there are better stocks to own. See Good News.
