They already own a part of WB but when AB goes public and raises billions would they turn around and buy SINA? Yoku and Tudo recently merged. Seems possible since they already have done a deal.
BTU was over $16 just a few weeks ago, almost $17
With the market up and without any news its down over $4
Did Goldman Brokers sell off their clients shares over the past few weeks to drive price lower?
Why doesn't this get policed?
Tuesday BTU closed higher after downgrade, and opened up 20 cents only to sell off by end of day
Its like people knew GS would downgrade
Whats crazy is that I think I have to give my money to GS because they are behind these ups and downs
My friends broker works for Goldman. His broker bought him DD and yesterday Goldman upgraded it and the stock shot up. Is this legal practice? They buy stocks for their clients and then publish upgrades?!
As I stated Goldman upgraded BTU to $26 in November of 2013, just 10 months ago
I can tell you that its a very long process where lawyers go back and forth until a judge decides whether to go forward. If the judge feels that there was no wrong doing the case is dropped. With the holiday season coming this case can drag on until mid 2015. As we all know the attorneys wont waste their time unless there is $$ to recover. Attorneys are in it for the $$$, not to fight evil. If they learn that there is no $$ for them to recover they walk away from the case. If someone gets hit by a driver without insurance , go try and find an attorney who will take that case.
Keep in mind the downgrade came from Northland Securities
Most losing seasons in the NBA
All draft picks are duds
Except Kevin Love who said See YA!
The guy who,owns nba's Minnesota Timberwolves owns Noryhland securities . He just downgraded BTU . Then again the Twolves are the worst team in the NBA and he hasn't the longest losing season streak and no n playoff appearance, all his picks and trades in the NBA have failed. Now he downgrades BTU
How about when it dropped to the low $40's and then ran to the high $90s
Where you shorting anywhere between $42 and $98?
Be honest, were you bashing it during that run?
That started 36 months ago until about 6 months ago
For 30 months it went higher and higher
Were you a naked short?
are you going to tell us, hat you didn't start shorting until the high?
RUDEDUDE was correct. But all Asian stocks were down. Did you predict all or are you just a SINA basher?
Rudedude, you said it would spike on Alibaba news, but Alibaba is still news
Up or down on IPO?
The Upper West Side was in love with Fairway and they expanded their concept around Manhattan, which happens to be Supermarket depraved. With all the people with $$ who now reside in Manhattan its surprising that there are such few supermarkets and gas stations. Every Fairway I have stepped into is packed. There are so many up and coming neighborhoods in Manhattan and the boros that FWM can succeed in. The Brooklyn store location is in an area that's years away. There isn't much public transportation around there so its more of a destination. But the Manhattan stores seem to be tremendously popular. They just need to find more locations and expand into the right areas.
What type of business alignment? Wholefoods wont buy a company that sells Pepsi and Wise Potato Chips
$250 m in debt but also $250 in assets, right?
A billion in sales over the next few years.
50,000 sq feet near the Staten Island Mall, that should generate big bucks
