//pretty quiet for the day before er and a major snow storm.//
People are busy preparing for the Storm, candles, portable gas, phone charger, UPS, emergency kits?
Probably don't need water, they can eat snow?
It's so stupid, man created everything for the money, nobody finds a way to divert the storm.
What can I say? That Gao always over-promise or under-deliver; didn't hear anyone is on sale.
Maybe JKS buys SOL if two Brothers can sit down and talk?
//am checking an east coast route from jfk to FLL//
You keep checking; I thought there's another Big Airport there? How about NJ? They have big airport as well?
Who got out and who didn't today? Who is Big and who is small there?
How come that JustBlue didn't have an earnings date? Did I miss the announcement? They reported their traffic late. Does ALK fly to North East? It refused to go up big when Uncle called it seriously undervalued, and now it wants to run? If nothing is exciting enough, maybe LUV will join AAL and DAL in the 50s?
//it will be a quick storm,//
False alarm? Talked to my sister, the grandson is coming home at noon, no school this afternoon and tomorrow.
It's danmm cold there.
//if they took the money out now they would only get 25 million out of aroung 750 million. that is a big loss//
You read too much craps. Let Uncle explain again about the AAL numbers in Venezuela.
2012 is about VBE 404m "valued" at VBE 4.3/USD, 2013 is about VBE 3,654m "valued" at VBE 6.3/USD, and 2014 is VBE 564 "valued" at VBE 12/USD. 2012 and 2013 money were "recorded" at VBE 4.3 and 6.3 to a dollar, now they have to be revalued at Sicad 1 rate at round VBE 12 to 1 USD. The worst case is using Sicad 2 rate, which is already over VBE 50 to 1 USD, if you WANT/NEED all your money out Now. The article you read used Black Market Rate, that's crazy.
You take their total of VBE 4,622 m and mark it to Sicad 1 at 12, you still get $385m out of the $721m. That's only $335m to be written off. AAL is rich boy, $335m is nothing for them to write off in 1Q 2015 when they save lots of money on fuel. DAL has to write off $50m as well, poor little thing.
But, nobody is putting gun on their heads to do so right Now.
//am about to go out to the store myself before i get snowed in. but so far, the ground isn't even covered yet.//
Stop talking, go out to get whatever you need. Fill up your gas tank, get more cash. Hope the baby doesn't come early? Dn't worry about stocks, they seem to be doing what they're supposed to do.
Symbols and numbers, a couple are really making sense, stocks don't go $80 if they don't cross $70, they're not drug or high-tech stocks.
Tried to call a couple people in NYC, missed calls, hope all is well.
//I must tell you, I was on the phone for 20 minutes and no luck.//
Uncle tried to book a one-way ticket from Hong Kong to LAX yesterday, it was busy but it let me leave a call back number and they did call back in 30 minutes. Their website is no good, you can't book a partner's flight like Cathay Pacific, you have to call in and pay them extra $35 for Phone Ticketing Service, on top of another $56.70 taxes and carrier-imposed fees. Total $91.70 and 67.5k miles for one-way First Class.
ps, Qantas and British Airways at least let people search for One-World partners' ticket, AA doesn't. They better make improvement after the integration with US Airways.
Uncle got All the stocks you mentioned; even that TSLA was dumped at $225 (15x15), waiting to reload at $169 (13x13). Sprint Uncle lost it all on Call Options, as well as Softbank's. Yahoo Uncle sold many and still got many, same to BABA, AAPL Uncle and kids got tons of it since it was in the $50 Pre-split, Son sold all his at $700, paid tax and bought his in-law a million dollar house, same stupid as Uncle, like Father like Son, two suckers in same family.
ps, Uncle is analyzing Rig Count data, and it ain't exciting at all, they won't quit so easily, what the heck! Oil has to hit 1st bottom probably in March or April, double bottom once more after faking up.
//am partial to biotech/pharmas//
Uncle used to be Big time player on Biotech/Pharma, nowadays simply counting on my FBIOX, especially the 1st half of the year. People love to bet according to FDA schedule for new drugs. I got boring stocks like UNH, DGX and BRLI, and smaller on HCP. The population will be aging, I mean the Baby Buster/Boomer.
Uncle got tons of AAPL, YHOO and BABA, people are not so hot on them recently and Uncle reduced some, but you know they'll probably go Up as earnings are closer now.
ps, Uncle still waits for TSLA to drop to 40x40, TWTR to go $30, but they refused to coopearate.
How's the canceling flights help the Airliners?
So it's going to help them go down before going up even more?
Uncle says Just Close your eyes or watch the Horse racing; there's really nothing worth worrying in life.
ps, Done with afternoon chat. Back in 4-5 hours.
//I just tried it and got a message telling me to call Verizon.//
If you data plan does not allow you to have Personal HotSpot, you need to increase your data plan, some carrier requires at least 2GB, some can be as much as 5GB data.
You need a portable charger or two, they're really cheap nowadays, or you have to charge your phone in the car?
Most people have UPS for their computers, chances are the internet providers will still be up, so you plug your modem, your Wireless router/access point, your desk light, your computer, your monitor, VOIP phone all to the UPS. You'll be fine for a while.
ps, In case you don't have an UPS, run to the store to get a couple of them. A 550VA is selling around $50, get 2-3 of them, it's cheaper than flying out to Sunshine California. Grab few short power cable as well, they have #$%$ people design their outlets on UPS, hard to plug two small transformers next to each other, you need the extensions.
Totally waste of time guessing around. One should spend more time studying, instead of fooling around, especially when one is heavy on Airlines. Make sure you have at least one year worth of 8-K, 10-Q and 10-K as well as their earnings reports on file. One Spread Sheet per quarter with 6 Airlines numbers on 6 columns, you don't have 10-Q for 4Q so you wait for 10-K later. Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) has more information to be tracked.
//Here is a good analogy .....stocks and horse racing..//
Uncle watches them just like the Horse Racing everyday, all 6 of them... No kidding!
