I don't want to be negative but how can you count on a stock that has gone down for a year? I am selling puts and rolling it over to lower strikes without losing money. One day- some day -it should bounce. My feeling is it may bounce in the second half of this year. Reason is 2015 is going to be the worst for earnings. And stocks bounce 6 months ahead of time.
there is going to be flash floods in TX and some refineries are on its way. I know VLO has them there. Isn't TSO in the west coast? Is TSO going to be affected by extra driving or refinery damage? Or just in sympathy with VLO?Thank you.
She did it immediately the first time it came up. Every time a new idiot (actually they may be a paid by traders and these analysts have to be thoroughly investigated for insider trading)brings it up she can't go on responding- she has more important things to do obviously!
It is a meaningless question at this point. When it spins off Spinco is the same as BABA. But YHOO has other components- .35% of YHOO japan and YHOO core, deserving different multiples. Spinco will have the same multiple since the rest of it is going to be negligible compared to BABA. We know where YHOO Japan multiple but what would traders give YHOO core is anyone's guess but like MM said it is not negative or zero because that is an impossibility for a traded stock, right?
to educate the clueless what is going to happen when the breakup happens. At today's prices, Spinco market cap should be 32.24B. Dividing it by .9384B shareholders, we should have a price of 34.36, which is approximately 40% of BABA prices. Keep this in mind, OK?
15% of BABA+35% of YHOO japan+ YHOO cash-YHOO debt+YHOO core value of 6B currently. And then divide it by the number of shares. The max tax if they couldn't do anything which would definitely be not the case is said to be around 11B. Keep this post as a reference, OK?YHOO core has a long way to go. Once broken off it could be a takeover target for a lot more than 6B.....
Baba part=32.64B, YHOO Japan=8.31B, Cash=5.28B, Debt=-1.19B, YHOO core=around 6B=51.04B. Worst case tax = -11B. Still 40B. Divide it by 938 shares. 42.64. What nonsense is this analyst talking about? it is not factored in? This is 4th grade math. This stock has nowhere to go but up!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
The news is that Jack Ma implied he doesn't want to buy any US companies but wants to grow organically! So what? I am waiting for the break up so Marissa can do something with YHOO core.
trading during summer vacation. They have been teaching this in high schools. Maybe professionals are better staying out of the market during summer. Next year I am going to close out all my positions in April -May peak until August waiting for a dip. That should work like in olden days!
Every time a company spin off, investors benefit. So called unlocking the value. In the mean time if shorts want to make some money using technical trading you should let them. That was the only reason I held the stock through 52, because it is worth a lot more than that. Everyone in the world knows this but shorts just don't care. They think they can get out fast enough but we will see. I normally sell calls but I am afraid to now, because one never knows when it will pop up.
U.S. is ready to tighten but the rest of the world is not. They still have to weaken. That is why dollar has gone up but it has done it just over the talk of it. It is well in Yellen's hands to make the dollar go up or down. She just has to make a comment- not even do anything as we have seen in the first quarter. I feel nothing much is going to happen when it finally happens. That is exactly her game. She doesn't want the markets to react much.
High dollar is bad for DOW components. If that happens Yellen would postpone raising rates and that would bring dollar down.
