because it will not be the same company monday? It is merging with AA. AAMRQ has been in bankruptcy and OTC. Due to policies hedge funds will not invest. Now its out and listed on the Nasdaq. Market cap 16 billion. Deltas market cap 24 billion. AAL now largest airline and have a lot of cash on hand. No question is stupid
"Under the Nov. 12 accord, the Justice Department agreed to drop its challenge if the carriers gave up some airport slots. The federal district judge presiding over the antitrust case in Washington must also approve the proposed settlement after accepting public comments through Feb. 7."
I thought it was Dec?
To be honest though, I have no idea what is going on with the conversion. I bought LCC at 16 and 500 more shares friday around 23. Owned AAMRQ at 5 and sold at 10, took it and bought the shares of LCC. For me I just feel like thats where I would want my money now looking out. We could see a double in 18 months. Investors will be excited in the New American (AAL) on the Nasdaq. That alone should be a catalyst. The low PE is just the icing on the cake.
I dont know, it may not even matter what you do, it may all equal out. No Idea, just see LCC (AAL) much higher this time next year
I am not a basher, but your playing for a couple dollars...LCC right now just seems like a better play, especially if you bought in cheap on AAMRQ. Keep your gains running with LCC
wondering what the conversion will be, asking do i hold? do i sell? before or after merger? Why don't you just sell, take your profits and invest in LCC or the new AAL? Nobody on here knows exactly whats going to happen to your AAMRQ shares, buy you know whats happening to LCC...1:1...low PE, little downside risk. Stop gambling...you have a much better view with LCC or AAL
So I created a tumblr account a week ago to give it a try. I was interested in buying some yahoo stock, but I hated the platform of Tumblr and to be honest it sucked. I will pass, good luck to the longs though.
I work at an elementary school and kids always ask me what my full name is so they can add me on facebook. Crazy. Had a student the other day who I caught on her cell phone. 5th grader. She was on instagram. I hear kids all day talking about "rumors" that are going around on facebook. I also hear alot of "did you see that picture on instagram!?" I also get a lot of requests from parents of the students on facebook. DENIED! Oh and snap chat? thats the devil. These little kids are living in such a different time than I even was, and I am only 25.
Thing is, who cares if these teens aren't on it. How does that benefit facebook? When they leave highschool and go to college not knowing anyone,they will use facebook or whatever the new cool platform is. And by then IF facebook is losing its cool, it will be years from now and they will have made so much money and bought whoever the upcoming platform is. And if not? Well, then they will have been the creator of the future social media platform. Zuckerberg did say at the CC they are focusing on new apps/platforms completely separate from facebook.
Facebook is the king of social media and will always be. It will never end up like myspace. Here is a quote that tells you exactly why that is. Powerful.
"Myspace quickly gained popularity among teenage and young adult social groups. In February 2005, DeWolfe held talks with Mark Zuckerberg over acquiring Facebook but DeWolfe rejected Zuckerberg's $75 million asking price."
75 million? Thats laughable. Now let me ask you this. Do you think some 20 year old college kid who just created a platform from now that is gaining steam would turn down a billion dollars from zuckerberg? Absolutely not.
Facebook is king and will eat any new kids on the blocks lunch. 50 billion in the bank 5 years from now? I think so, unless they acquire something big.
And if you are afraid of twitter? dont be, ads don't have time to be engaging in the fast paced instant world of twitter.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Its not only clicks, its engagement / brand awareness / business results. If a local company gets on facebook and starts putting out advertisements to people who suit their product locally and business gets better, they continue to pay facebook for ads. Today was the perfect example. A local dunkin donuts here in south florida posted a picture of an iced pumpkin spice coffee and because I am in the area and had previously "liked" the official Dunkin Donuts Facebook page, I got the "suggested post" or "sponsored post". Looked good so I got one after work. If their business does better and they see more people coming in their door, they continue to pay facebook for the ads. If these ads continue to be effective, facebook will charge more $
lol said instagram was their favorite social platform, so whats the big deal? They dont think the ads do anything, but subconsciously they do. Saw a dunkin ad today, didnt click it. On the way home though I was feeling one and stopped by my local dunkin. Normally don't do that, that picture tho!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
