    EHealth aims for larger share of subsidized insurance market

    Online brokerage eHealth is planning to be much more active in signing up individuals for coverage who qualify for subsidies during the 2015 open-enrollment period, company officials said during a call with investors Wednesday. The company was largely thwarted in its efforts to sign up subsidized customers during the 2014 open-enrollment period because of technical problems.

    Gary Lauer, the CEO of eHealth, said that significant technical problems remain in working with and the state exchanges, and that he doesn't expect them to be resolved before the next open enrollment period begins Nov. 15. But Lauer believes manual workarounds have been developed that will allow the company to be much more successful in signing up individuals with incomes up to 400% of the federal poverty threshold.

    Nearly 90% of the individuals who purchased coverage through the federal exchange during the 2014 enrollment period qualified for subsidies, according to the CMS.

    The only thing BS is you with your nonsense pumping this stock in last year. Nobody cares about you stupid think about this stock. You should be ashamed of so much damages you caused to so many people who listened to your endless pumping. A lot of people hate you including me.

    Now regarding selling HSOL:

    1) Why Hanwha dont merge these 2 competing companies (HSOL, QCELL)?
    2) Why they hired a new CEO that has special experience in M&A ?
    3) Why Hanwha sold Pharma division to raise cash and also is considering other affiliates to sell?
    4) How letting q-cell and HSOL competing everyday in Japan and EU is a good biz practice?

    I am sure you cant rationally answer these question because you are too stupid!

    profit from selling what product?

  • 1. Hanwha does not want to merge HSOL & Qcell because of HSOL debt level
    2. Hanwha does not want competition of HSOL & Qcells in same markets (Japan , EU)
    3. Hanwha is raising cash to buy division of Dow and needs to sell assets
    4. Qcells has higher potential than HSOL due to its lower debt and higher technology superiority
    5. In Q3/2013 conference call , ex CEO indicated that selling HSOL is an option
    6. New CEO has special experience in M&A from his work in Samsung as VP

  • Hanwha Chemical has accelerated its efforts to purchase the petrochemical division of Dow Chemical by establishing a task force to manage the process.
    Hanwha is now in negotiation to buy a division of Dow Chimical for $2.9B. Since Hanwha has 2 solar groups ( HSOL and Q-cells) it makes sense to get rid of losing money HSOL for higher goal of buying division of Dow Chemical.
    Two months ago a Korean magazine brought that idea that Hanwha should sell HSOL to stop the competition between HSOL and Q-cells. The reporter even suggested that one of Hanwha executives agreed with him. I sent that info to one of the WS analysts. I have not receive response. I sent email to HSOL also w/o response.

    "The team is said to consist of Credit Suisse as an advisor and more than 20 Hanwha employees. Internationally acclaimed law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom is also on the team, according to industry sources.

    If realized, the country’s ninthlargest business conglomerate by assets will pay around 3 trillion won ($2.9 billion) for the deal, becoming one of the largest basic chemical developers in the world. Dow’s chlorine value chain is expected to generate $5 billion in sales a year, and Hanwha has been one of the strongest candidates since March.

    According to industry sources, the task force team conducted a field examination on one of Dow’s manufacturing sites in the U.S. in June. The acquisition process is expected to be in full swing by the end of the year.

    As of 2013, Hanwha Chemical had 12.8 trillion won in assets. The company marked a surplus in the fourth quarter of 2013, recording 14.4 billion won in net profit.

    Hanwha sold its construction materials division Hanwha L&C to Morgan Stanley Private Equity last month and announced a plan to sell Hanwha Polydreamer and Dreampharma in an apparent bid to reserve cash for the Dow deal.

  • My friend working in RDEN headquarter told me that today. She said there are negotiations in closed doors of executives from RDEN and WMT . Today is the second day of meetings between both companies.

    Is this a good thing for WMT or is throwing good of money on the dying brand of Elisabeth Arden? Anybody else heard about these negotiations?

    Thanks for rational response

  • "Red 5 are gamers who were sick with the same ol’ shooter and the same ol’ MMO. So they went out and started making a game they’d want to play. Somewhere along the way, they got a little lost, but they’re back on track and with a thriving but small community they’re onto something very special. It’s a little rough around the edges right now, but I’d heartily recommend Firefall to anyone who’s sick of the same old MMO fodder. Just be prepared to roll with the work-in-progress nature of the game, and you might be pleasantly surprised at the fun on offer. We strongly recommend all MMOO fodder gamers to try the new MMO Shooter FireFall. We think FireFall has the same excitement level as none MMO game World WarCraft"

  • Recommendation: NCTY is a Strong Buy.

    Moving Average Convergence/Divergence (MACD) indicates a Bullish Trend.
    Chart pattern indicates a Strong Upward Trend.
    Relative Strength is Very Bullish.
    Up/Down volume pattern indicates that the stock is under Accumulation.
    The 50 day Moving Average is rising which is Very Bullish.
    The 200 day Moving Average is rising which is Very Bullish.
    Look for Support at 2.71.

    10 Rational Reasons Why RDEN Will Be Bought Soon

    The restructuring and cost savings program announced earlier this week is a very positive and could create growth and turnaround even without any takeover deal. The recent 40% meltdown is not justified . Wall Street likes to screw as many people as they can to sell their shares in cheap so the Street can scoop up the cheap shares and resell them at a huge profit once they decide to reverse course and push the stock up

    WTO rules against U.S. import tariffs on China steel, solar panels
    GENEVA Mon Jul 14, 2014 12:04pm EDT

    Zhejiang province June 5, 2013.
    Regulatory News »
    Breakingviews »
    (Reuters) - World Trade Organisation judges found on Monday that the United States had violated global trade rules by imposing punitive import duties on a range of Chinese steel products, solar panels and other goods that Washington said enjoyed government subsidies.

    But the three-member panel also rejected some of the Chinese arguments against the U.S. countervailing duties in the $7.2 billion dispute filed in May 2012, which has echoes in Washington's trade relations with other countries.

    A summary of the report issued on the trade body's website said the judges upheld the Chinese claim that the underpinning for the U.S. action was inconsistent with the WTO agreement on subsidies and countervailing duties.

    The panel therefore "recommended that the United States bring its measures into conformity with its obligations" under the pact, a basic element of the global 1994 Marrakech accord that also set up the WTO

    good points. Firefall is a great exiting game and competing with world war craft

  • At 2.7 is trading at 3% of is value in 2008. It has room to go to at least $10 becuase of low float

    "We designed a game with an extremely passionate and talented team," said James Macauley, CEO of Red 5 Studios. "But Firefall wasn't complete until we were able to incorporate the invaluable feedback from our enthusiastic community during the beta period. Firefall is as much their game as it is ours."

    Players begin their journey in Firefall as an ARES pilot, an elite operative contracted by the Accord to reclaim Earth by leading the fight against an invading race known as the Chosen. Outfitted with military-grade battleframes, players will be able to collect equipment and materials to customize and strengthen their arsenal of weapons and abilities, while experiencing Firefall's rich lore and engaging content.

    Firefall features campaign missions and exciting quests as well as dynamic events that appear throughout the world, offering players new experiences throughout as they embark on their adventure. As players explore the vast open-world from New Eden to Devil's Tusk, they will encounter unique dynamic events, such as melding-fueled tornadoes, crystite meteor showers and Chosen incursions, which will bring new and exciting challenges to their Firefall experience. In addition to all of the PVE content, Firefall also features a large open-world PVP continent, where players can test their shooting skills and tactical abilities against other players to control outposts and resources in this hostile environment.

    Nice written article. It makes a lot of sense for NTES to buy a stack in a MMO gaming company. In addition Firefall is almost the same attractive & excitement level as World war Craft.

    What would be the premium above the current price? 20% , 30% or 50% ?

  • Firefall officially heats things up on July 29

    By S. Prell @SamPrell

    Long ago, in the ancient times of 2013, Red 5 Studios MMO Firefall was looking like it would live up to its name, and not in a good way. All PvP had been suspended, and even before things got to that point, the game's Jetball PvP mode was attracting less than three percent of its playerbase. That changes July 29 though, when Firefall exits open beta and experiences its official launch, bringing with it a ton of new content.

    First, those interested in blasting their fellow humans in the face should know that PvP will return in the form of an open world tug-of-war featuring resource collection and base captures. The launch update will also open up new areas to explore, which will "quadruple" the size of the environment, according to Red 5 CEO James Macauley. "The update we are releasing for launch will be the largest update we have ever had," Macauley is quoted in a related press release.

    Firefall will be free to play upon launch, but if you're desperate to see these new changes sooner, you can purchase an early access pack for $30 or $100, each of which come with a bevvy of in-game goodies.
