Nancy Grace is making a fortune talking about all of these cases.
Get ready now for the Michael Dunn/Jordan Davis case from Florida. This is going to be another "stand your ground" case.
In 1995, Marcia Clark received $4.2 milllion for the world rights to her story from the publisher Viking after the OJ Simpson trial.
Mark O'Mara had agreed to defend Zimmerman for free. O'Mara did mention last week that he intends to write a book when the trial is over.
with a book deal and movie rights. If he does make this money, the best thing to do would be to quickly buy a house and pay all cash in either Florida or Texas. This is in case there is a wrongful death suit against him. Your house cannot be seized in these states to satisfy a civil suit. In case he were to need money in the future, he could always borrow against his home.
"Martin's family can still file a civil suit against Zimmerman under Florida's Wrongful Death Act, which requires proof that Martin's death was caused by the negligence of another person or entity. To prove negligence under the statute, it must be shown that Zimmerman owed Martin a legal duty, that the duty owed was breached, and that an injury was caused to Martin by Zimmerman's breach."
Just like what had happened in the O.J. Simpson case.
Think about those shorts who are on vacation, maybe a cruise out of the country. They may have a protective stop loss set at 10.00 thinking this is going to protect them. On Monday, their stop loss is activated and becomes an order to cover their short position at market price,
This is going to be similar to the Dell buyout. Does anyone recall if there was a large short position in Dell prior to the buyout offer?
One of the reasons we are not seeing a bounce is because the short interest is so low. Even with a lot of short covering today, there are still more shares being sold than bought.

Was the preliminary results expected to have been announced today?
According to the option pricing, this appears to have been totally unexpected. For example, the July 490 puts expiring next week is 5X the price of the July 490 puts expiring this week. Those who had paid the extra time premium for their options are going to be penalized by this preliminary announcement.
ACCS had paid Victory Mark Corp. $500,000 to do a stock promotion for the company.
Should a company with no earnings and assets be paying this large amount for such a promo?
Pump and Dump?
There are always problems in foreign countries somewhere around the world. As peace keeper for the world, the United States is expected to respond to each and every problem.
The reason they are making a fuss over John Kerry not being available for the Egyptian crisis is because this crisis is an embarrassment to the United States. The U.S. had supported the overthrow of former Egyptian leader Mubarak in order to put President Morsi into power. Now the overthrow of the first democratically elected president by a coup shows that Democracy in Egypt is a failure. We feel responsible for this failure. Some countries are just not ready for a democratic form of government.
The quickest and easiest way for Paula Deen to gain redemption would be to just get interviewed by Oprah.
If Oprah can forgive her, then everyone else will.
I would think that he would be smart enough to not have any of this material in his possession. The best way to do this would be to have uploaded everything to the cloud. Divide it into 10 different portions and upload each portion to a respective one of 10 different email addresses. If forced to disclose the info, lets say by the Russians, he could just give them the info from only one of the email addresses. If he were to give up everything, he would then be of no value to his captors.
Even if he were to receive asylum in Ecuador, he would not be able to live a normal life. It would just be a matter of time before he is taken out by a hit squad, as a warning to others.
They are already talking about which actor would be best to portray Snowden if made into a movie. I think Robert Pattinson or Hayden Christensen would be a good choice.
A share buyback would theoretically have no effect upon the share price because the value of the company is being reduced by an amount equal to the value of the shares being repurchased.
A reduction of the float could have an effect on the share price if for example the earnings were to remain the same after the share buyback. In this example, the EPS would be higher thus making the stock more desirable to investors.
But he is concerned about the number of cash sales. He feels that cash buyers are speculators creating an unstable market. However, could the opposite be true?
In many countries, mortgages are not available. Cash is the only way to buy in these countries. A cash market is theoretically a more stable market. In such a market, there would not be any homeowners underwater should their property values decline.
