You two can certainly try your mom. She's hot when she is with me.
But, comparing to NVAX which has been diluting many times over and had nothing but promises and pipedreams, yet still floating.....
SVA is much more solid and the government is fully behind it. So one never know how high this will play out. It may get crazy, fast!
Is this normal? How much of salary they are drawing? I have to they sure have a very position solidly filled, even it has no product to sell.
Sorry, TRIP was dumped (spined off) for good reason by EXPE .....
These guys in EXPE knew that TRIP is not going to do well....
This is not to bash TRIP, but the reviwe site biz model is not good....
It is funny to see a growup like you saying something like you did. Getting burned fixated on a company is not a good thing.
As for your silly intended insult, it only depicts your inner hollowness, and you deserve what coming to you.
Sorry to rain on your parade, but I seriously looked into it before deciding shorting it (covered some position at 34~after hours to take some profit), but I find nothing very attractive about this service (not at the present time and form anyhow).
As i said, I travel alot both professionally and with family. But I have never used trip because I find it very difficult to nevigate and the so-called screening is quite useless.
Just to give you an example, when I book a hotel, I want the price instead of a range, then have to click again for some specific quote? The website is totally NOT userfriendly.
Like one other poster here said, it sells gossip, and I may add, very inaccurate gossip too!
Just for the past several weeks: I have booked 2 internation flight on Vayama... >6 domestic flights on United.Com, several on Southwest, Delta, Jetblue....
Equal number of car rentals, via expedia.
Hotels via Expedia, PCLN...
Have never used TRIP. I find it very difficult to use.
I travel a lot both casually and professionally, I do not use TRIP, and tried it after found out about it.
I have to say, it is just another ....
Their wall-street buddies will try hard to hold MSG for a while, but to no avail....then a sudden drop shall come!
Let's see what happens
Do you really own a hotel/motel? what's your advertizing budget that you spent on TRIP last 6 months?
Thanks for the comments. Although what you said that "impossible of others to compete...." was too much of an exaggeration, but it is interesting to know your opinion.
The took-over was done through an inside job by the former CFO who bought out his Wharton classmate's failing adventure, for a way-overpriced mark.
VISN will not pay for it! Sorry!
Communist party in China is more like a club membership, sometimes one needs to join just to be able to mingle with the powerful,..veyr much like the country club here. China is the most capitalistic country now in the world (in its premitive stage, I shall add...)
As for consolidation, I think it is needed and Jaso, STP will be the most likely surviver. As a big picture, with the oil price so high and we are running out of oil, plus the unrest in the "ever-peaceful" middle east, alternative energy is the way to go (at least till we found some other sensible alternative). The Chinese government knows it, and the germans know it, and so do many other countries. We, the USA, are held back by big oil and auto-industry interest group. But we will have to come to the realization that cheap oil is no longer...
Good luck to all.
