    FINDLAY, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE), See news: 08/26/2014

    "Cooper Tire & Rubber Company (CTB) today reported the results of the valuation of Cooper Chengshan (Shandong) Tire Company Ltd (CCT), which was completed by an independent firm responsible for determining a fair market value for CCT on a stand-alone basis, excluding the value of trademarks and technologies licensed by Cooper to CCT. The valuation, which is the option price, was determined to be RMB 2.722 billion or approximately US $440 million at the current exchange rate.

    Under the option agreement announced August 15, 2014 between Cooper and Chengshan Group Company Ltd., upon delivery of the valuation, Chengshan has the first option to elect, within 45 days, to purchase Cooper’s 65 percent interest in CCT for 65 percent of the option price, to sell its 35 percent interest in CCT to Cooper for 35 percent of the option price, or not to exercise either of these options. If Chengshan determines not to exercise either the put or call option, Cooper has the right to purchase Chengshan’s 35 percent interest in CCT for 35 percent of the option price. In the event that neither party elects to purchase the other’s interest in CCT, the option agreement provides that the joint venture will continue as currently structured. Further, should Chengshan purchase Cooper’s stake in the joint venture, Cooper will continue to have offtake rights with CCT agreeing to produce Cooper-brand products, including truck and bus radial tires, for a minimum of three years."

    1. The long term, linear chart on DE takes the stock to $50 if one assumes historical growth rates repeat.

    2. Agriculture industry is close to 100 percent certainty. The problem is when not if.

    3. Near term there is nothing to indicate a recovery this year or next due to massive over supply of corn, wheat, rice and beans.

    4. Catepillar is an indicator for the construction side of business which appears to be o.k. but not rapidly growing.

    5. I like AGCO now because it could be taken over by an India farm machinery outfit and an Indian CEO lady is buying AGCO shares like they are going out of style.

    If you read their previous quarterly report an listen to what they said, you would think HOG would rise above $75 by next quarter. In other words they will have a significant beat next quarter. But, you have to read and do some research to have an understanding of why this is likely to rise.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    The other one I think will be taken over is MNKD for its recent diabetes insulin delivery system.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • If you ever meet anyone who has acquired an infection at a hospital or clinic, particularly a skin infection, you will buy this stock.
    These infections are an absolute nightmare where your skin literally rots away from a tiny dot sore to a grossly large area. There are extremely few treatments, the best right now appears to be CBST.

    Isn't it likely do a share offering to pay down debt. That is likely to be at current stock price.
    Upgrades / downgrades on debt are to maximize returns to lenders.
    I am most pleased YOU are going to "stay away". LOL

    Container Store CEO: "The U.S. consumer is in a funk."
    I guess the same can be said of Helen.

    CALM has an excellent dividend paying history.
    Agree it is overpriced at the moment.
    I'll wait until there is some horrible news on CALM and then buy.
    Long term holders will be fine even if they buy it now but I think it could easily drop back to $50 on very bad news.
    CALM stock price appreciation history beats 99% of the market.
    Same with several other great agriculture stocks.
    Side note: I wrote a technical book on poultry.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    what is wrong with pfe

    PFE paying down long term debt which was $41,812,000,000 two years ago.
    Now PFE long term debt is down to $31,433,000,000 plus or minus a billion.
    So they've paid down a rounded $10 billion in about three years. This is a really good idea considering what may happen to interest rates and maybe the need to raise more cash for acquisitions.
    Dividend of 3.50% is excellent considering the payout ratio is about 31% leaving plenty of cushion to continue debt reduction and keeping up the dividend, perhaps continuing its history of increasing dividends over time.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
