When you say 'buy' that implies an open market purchase, now, for cash - it would show up in the daily trading volume. Your statement is at best misleading. An option gives an individual the right to buy the stock in the future. Notice the vesting period for these options? Rarely does an individual with an option in the black actually buy the shares - instead they take the net proceeds.
Dip, first off Jobs was a special and unique case and he didn't fix everything in the first week even though he knew the company better then anyone SINCE HE STARTED IT - idiotic comparison. Wotton is brand new to ACT. Regardless of his talents this company still has significant issues that can't be fixed with a magic wand.
I do follow baseball and you can trade for a star hitter and have them in the line up contributing the next night. Doesn't work that way in business you loon. Plenty of high profile executive hires in the past few years more then prove my point versus your one silly exception.
You really are a loon. That is a great analogy - you think a new CEO is like a sports team that trades for new talent and they can make an immediate contribution. Doesn't work that way in the business world. I'm sure he is working on key things but you likely won't hear from him until the earnings call.
Yet this from other governments in the region. NYT story.
"The Arab states’ loathing and fear of political Islam is so strong that it outweighs their allergy to Benjamin Netanyahu,” the prime minister of Israel, said Aaron David Miller, a scholar at the Wilson Center in Washington and a former Middle East negotiator under several presidents. “I have never seen a situation like it, where you have so many Arab states acquiescing in the death and destruction in Gaza and the pummeling of Hamas. The silence is deafening.”
Why is it so tough for you Libroids to at least admit that there is something to investigate here, even if it goes no further then Lerner?
At what average should he be fired keep? Ya just don't get it. Never will. I hope you make money, but it will be a fluke.
Seriously keep, you don't get it. Why you would expect a new CEO to be able to walk in and dramatically change the direction of a company in a few days is beyond me. You really think that there was so much obvious stuff that prior management simply wasn't doing and all Wotton had to do was walk in and say "do this!this and this" and everything would be fine. It doesn't work that way.
Keep your yap keeps flapping about the proxy issue and increased shares, but you've never offered how you would have settled the law suits and provided the shares for LP financing without additional shares. Until you can provide a solution for that you're all talk.
Keep, what do you want him to say after a week!. That he likes his office decor? Ya just don't get it.
Unless something happens with the peer journal or a renewal of Lanza's contract, I'd expect the first time we hear from Wotton will be the Q2 conference call.
With one week under his belt, I don't understand what you think he could communicate that would be of any relevance?
Excerpt for a Pravda 'editorial.' Reading this kind of stuff and you start to better understand the Russian mind. Dangerous.
"At some point the Russian government will have to face the fact that it doesn't have "Western partners." Russia has Western enemies who are being organized to isolate Russia, to injure Russia economically and diplomatically, to surround Russia militarily, to destabilize Russia by calling the American-funded NGOs into the streets, and in the absence of a coup that installs an American puppet in Moscow to attack Russia with nuclear weapons.
I respect Putin's reliance on diplomacy and good will in the place of force. The problem with Putin's approach is that Washington has no good will, so there is no reciprocity.
Washington has an agenda. Europe consists of captive nations, and these nations are without leaders capable of breaking free of Washington's agenda.
I hope that I am wrong, but I think Putin has miscalculated. If Putin had accepted the
former Russian provinces requests to reunite with Russia, the conflict in Ukraine would be over. I am certain that Europe would not have joined Washington in any invasion with the purpose of recovering for Ukraine former provinces of Russia herself. When Washington says that Putin is responsible for downing the Malaysian airliner, Washington is correct in a way that Washington doesn't suspect. Had Putin completed the task begun with Crimea and reunited the Russian provinces with Russia, there would have been no war during which an airliner could have been downed, whether by accident or as a plot to demonize Russia. Ukraine has no capability of confronting Russia militarily and had no alternative to accepting the reunification of the Russian territories.
Europe would have witnessed a decisive Russian decision and would have put a great distance between itself and Washington's provocative agenda. This European response would have precluded Washington's ability to gradually escalate the crisis by grad
