The cost of operations went up for TEG and they missed the estimated earnings. So, as always, the anal ists went crazy and said "sell". So the sheep sold and continue to sell. It just cracks me up that one day it is a buy, the next day a hold, then the following day a sell. Better to buy and hold and not pay too much attention to anal ists. If I listened to them, I wouldn't have a dime left, doing quite well without them.
I got mine in the mail yesterday (live in Nevada). I just hold common shares that were accumulated over the years I worked for Safeway. I don't think that I hold any special priority by any means, so keep looking for the letter, I would imagine that it would take a while to get them all out.
Just got a letter from Safeway concerning the right to buy one one thousandths of a share of Series A Junior Preferred stock. The letter says that they are aware of a significant amount of Common stock held by Jana Partners LLC. I have read this and I am sorry to say that I don't speak or read legaleze very well. Can anyone explain this? My take is that it is a poison pill designed to get the present stock holders more money if there is an official takeover attempt. Please spare me from the usual negative comments associated with asking a question. So if you know and would like to share, wonderful, if you know and you want to make yourself superior by engaging in a tirade of stupidity, then don't bother answering. Thanks
The congress and the senate passed "Obama Care" and the Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of the law. Like you, I don't agree with the law, but the majority rules in this country even if it an insane idea. I plan of voting all the A holes out, but I am afraid that the American loss of memory at election time will get the same idiots in again. This time I hope I am dead wrong.
First of all, I figured that with all your posts about Obama that you would know where the Obama bashing board was. Secondly you need to understand how our government works. The president of the country does not make the laws. The congress and senate make the laws. The president also does not interpret the laws, the Supreme Court does. While the president does have the power of veto on laws passed by the congress and senate, they can overrule a veto by voting a super majority. So in essence, the president of the U.S. has very little power and can't arbitrarily "command" what is happening in this country. Although I don't care for the presidents politics, I am least understand how the government works, and how limited the powers of the president are. So go ahead and bash all you want, but make sure you are bashing the right entity of the government.
Why don't you go on an Obama bashing board, you post has nothing to do with Safeway and it's taking space. So find a new board to post your rambling diatribes.
Wow, if you got all your assets together, you might be able to buy a 10th of an ounce, I don't think that will get you anywhere.
You can't, section 27A says anyone posting on the Safeway board cannot get any free loader goodies. The NSA already has your name and address, so you get nothing.
Hope you get them, we don't want you in the stores anyways. Besides, Welfare*Mart fits your posts better than SWY
The general sentiment here is hat because Fanny made a billion dollars in a quarter, the conservatorship will be ending soon. Here is a bit of information that you should think about:
NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- When the dust settles, the federal bailout of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be the most expensive government rescue of the financial crisis -- it already stands at $153 billion and counting.
Even as the Obama administration unveiled its plan for reforming the firms, experts agree taxpayer losses are going to continue to climb, no matter what Congress eventually decides to do with them.
Too bad you couldn't get an explanation, I too am wondering just what it is, and Google is certainly no help. I also would appreciate an explanation as I have no idea what it is, even after reading what little information is available through Google.,
Hey Star, maybe no one knows what it is. I looked it up on Google and now I am more confused than before. The probable reason no one has replied is because they are in the dark as I am.
Many companies want you to hold 100 or more shares. This makes their book work a little lighter. The key word is voluntary. Since I don't have 100 shares yet, I am going to do nothing. I have gotten "voluntary offers" such as this from several companies and have ignored them all, why should I pay to sell stocks that makes their accounting easier, and then pay capital gains to Uncle Sam too. Just ignore the offer.
I guess I am shopping some more "customer oriented" stores. If customer service is closed, then the clerk should have club cards in the check stand. I agree, there is no way a slighted customer is going to come back to get a club card. Safeway doesn't get a second chance to make a first impression.
This is a pretty benign stock, pays great dividends, has a fairly narrow range in value, doesn't create much controversy, no pumpers, and no bashers.. Congratulations on your buy, I got in at 60.00 and some change, plan to keep it for a long time.
In Nevada it is pretty easy to obtain a concealed weapon permit. So if the gun is concealed, how would any know you have it. The only sign I have seen about firearms in Nevada is at a casino here in Fallon. Specifically says no open carry or concealed weapons allowed in the casino. Again, how would any one know?
You are probably right, they didn't have club cards in the checkstands, but I would be more than willing to bet that they had them at customer service. I don't believe that a single store in the company wouldn't have club cards in the store. By the way, as a former employee I can tell you that the clerk was right, it is against company policy to knowingly swiping a different card, let alone her own. If you want to shop somewhere else, as obviously you have up till now, then shop there. It amazes me that so many people walk into any store and believe that they can tell management how to run it after less than an hour in the store.. JMO
