I am holding some of that stock...employee stock program. Those expensive stocks will offset some of the gains when the stock was in the low range. I have held the stock hoping to get a decent return, it looks like that is in the process..
Your math evades me. In it's hey day Fannie was never valued that high. I own an oil stock, market cap 43.99 billion, EPS 6.02, price $77.00. So let's compare to Fannie: 27.55 billion, EPS $ -0.25, price $200-300???? Please explain how you arrive at your estimate. Seems like it is a little bit high.
Funny, why do you get up in the morning and go to work? It can be interpreted as greed also. In fact everyone that tries to better themselves can be considered greedy. Sorry, I am not buying this line of crapola.
Safeway was in dire straights back in the 80's. KKR took the company private. This does have advantages, first the company does not answer to shareholders or everybody's anal ists. With that said, they can cut prices without having the stock drop to ridiculous levels because they are not making a ton of money. I was with Safeway the first time they went private, and I have to say it was rough, but something that needed to be done. It is almost the same situation now. so I think the company is making the right choice, and with the stock climbing on this news alone, shareholders will be realize top dollar for their stock and get shares in Blackhawk to boot. I am rooting for the deal to be completed.
Sorry, but I think Amazon's internet model is working out great and the chances of them going to a brick and mortar business model is out of the question.
Don't you mean real SPAM? You are on every Yahoo board with the same #$%$, please, please get a real job and move from mommy's basement.
I would like to personally thank several of the consistent posters on the Safeway forum. Obamastamps, Vallen2, barcode, obamafreeloader, healthcaredotgov, etc. You have taken over this board with your constant worthless #$%$. Makes my day easier as I don't need to look at this board any more. Thanks to all of you, but I suspect that "all of you" are one person. So keep the absurd posts coming, I won't be around to read any of them, and I am sure that I am not the only one.
Bud: do you have any more news about the Portland job loss? I know several people working in the office there, just wonder how they made out. I got walked to the door two years ago after 42 years with the company. Made a lot of friends all over the country, sad to hear about the closures, and the job eliminations.
What are you basing your "happiness factor"? I would suggest you talk to a few Canadians, I think you will find that they are NOT happy with their system, but have no other recourse, so they tolerate it. For that matter go on a Canadian website concerning their health care, and post how happy they are with. I think you will be in for some shocking revelations.
I worked with a group of Canadians in Calgary for about two weeks. They didn't seem to like their medical system very well. Unless you have a life threatening situation, you go on a list, don't worry, they will call when there is an opening, even if it's five years later. Taxes are extremely high to support the medical system. Don't fool yourself, they don't have a better system than we do, just different. As for not liking capitalism, may I suggest Somalia, Syria, or the United Arab Kingdom. I think you will fit in there nicely.
Since the split with COP, Phillips has done quite well. If you take the shares received and kept them along with COP, your original investment is now worth $107.75 per share of pre split COP. Looks like this was a good move for the stockholders. the dividend is pretty healthy too. Glad I held all my proceeds from the split.
I don't think so, I think it's more of not wanting to read the political #$%$ that you and others are posting all the time.
Interesting that you are on unemployment, and probably have been for some time, and yet you gripe about everything that has anything to do with Obama. So I guess that makes you one of the freeloaders that you are always complaining about. Interesting, very interesting.
Isn't it funny that it took years to figure out some basic information. 1. Food prices go up because the majority of the corn crop is going to make methanol. 2. The cost of methanol is the price paid for the corn, then the cost of energy to covert corn into methanol. It takes more energy to make a gallon of methanol than that gallon with produce when mixed with gasoline. Wow, it only took the senate 15 ore more years to figure out those two points. We need to forget this "feel good" #$%$ and do what is right for the consumers in this country . ie: Citizens
This is the Safeway board, and I fail to understand what this thread has to with Safeway. Please go somewhere else to discuss your politics.
