    Yeah, once EXC gets past this secondary, it will stabilize and pop into the 40s. That is, barring a significant market correction.

    There is plenty of upside left in this stock/company. When it reaches $45, we can take a harder look at taking some money off the table.

    In the least, a suspicious move by "The Street." BDSI is rising into the FDA date and they give a lame reason why you should back off. A significant amount of BDSI's future is tied up in approval on June 7 and down the road with other promising drug candidates, a heck of a lot more than "previous earnings."

    This smells. Of course Cramer lived in his car for a year, so he is well accustomed to "smelling."

    price when issued is over 33 dollars

    Sounds too much like a pipe dream, which usually means it is tailor-made for suckers. The distribution side is responsible for 7 percent of the company's revenues, according to an analyst with the firm where I own the stock. The 4-1 spinoff perhaps takes into account the substantial physical assets that will be part of the new company. But in no scenario do I see this new entity being valued so highly. I guess I can still hope.

  • I'm guessing it will be between $5 and $6 a share. The distribution side is just 7 percent of the business.

  • It's gone from budding high flier to toiletsville pretty rapidly. I'm thinking of adding, but this drop is a little disconcerting. Input?

    With the spinoff, any chance that NOV raises its dividend? How about chances of the new company initiating a dividend?

    Ukraine erupts in violence

    Why don't you really tell us what you think, yo-yo? Your commentary smacks of a guy who has read right-wing b.s. so long, it just spews out of you. You'd be much better off if you assumed most politicians, not just Obama, are going to let you down, one way or another.

    For an example, GWB's election was gleefully welcomed by right-wingers everywhere, even if his brother had to keep Florida from a potentially perilous recount to assure that it would stick. Alas, as some of us suspected all along, he turned out to be a near-rube who quickly sent this country into a sustained downward spiral. Still, many right-wingers would never acknowledge how bad he was.

    Then Obama got elected. Congressional Republicans instantly bugled openly that their most compelling goal was to defeat about everything he attempted. How would you like to walk into that kind of hostile situation? But their narrow-mindedness and vindictiveness appeared only to be cheered by many right-wingers. It simply shows vividly how divisive and gutter-like our politics have become, with no lie left untold if it can help sway votes.

    This is not to say either side has a monopoly of ethically challenged sorts. You have to know both sides have plenty of warts. But one side clearly takes most of its marching orders from the ultra rich, while the other may go overboard to help the less fortunate. I personally would put significantly more restrictions on who qualifies for assistance, but I have a bigger gripe with public corporation CEOs who regularly wrangle many millions in options awards for themselves for one main reason -- they can get away with it. Then they grouse about taxes.

    I guarantee you this: if Obama was a Republican, you and your fellow incessant acid-throwers would somehow find a way to defend him. It would be hard, because he's a black man and all, but you would do it. Take one for the big R..

    Could it be that you're looking in the mirror when you talk in terms of a bloated pig?

    Reseach paper

    A friend emailed me the research paper, knowing I just sold a sizable interest in a stock and am looking for other ideas. I'm willing to email it to you, if you want to tell me where to send it. I'm guessing you are right -- that Putin is on a power trip, now that he's seen the world's relatively muted reaction to the Crimea muscle job.

    I read a 21-page research paper on Sberbank this morning.There were a lot of caveats, but a sizable mutual fund has decided to enter a position on the company. One small nugget: it recommended buying the stock in a non-retirement account. It said the US and Russia have a tax treaty, so you would be able to recoup the 15 percent tax the Russians charge on dividends. In a retirement account, you're out of luck there.

    This may be a little too far out on the ledge for me, since Russia in a worst case scenario could nationalize all Western assets in the country. But I can envision fairly significant upside for those willing to roll the dice that Putin will take a long walk soon and come back a more reasonable man.
