The sun sets 100% of the time after close on Fridays & rises 100% of the time before open on Mondays...
This is the typical Apple investor that uses "once" instead of "wants"?
Okay, I assumed they did because they asked for it previously & at that time the estimate was $0.05 - $0.08 per share or about 20% of earnings. I'd expect the dividend payout to be higher than that because the bank is in much better shape. For comparison, the historical payout ratio for banks is 46%.
The Berkshire Hathaway deal will be voted on by stockholders on May 7 & the Bank's SEC filing (form 10-K) is including it in Tier 1 capital calculations for 2013.
Last year BAC's capital plan showed that they could support a higher dividend, but the bank wasn't allowed to raise it. This year BAC now has Buffet's shares that can be counted towards requirements, which the bank will smash, so expect a dividend increase. Does anyone know how much BAC proposed the dividend to be in last year's capital plan?
CF Industries Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CF) reports Q4 EPS of $5.71 versus the estimated $4.56 , beating by $1.15 . EPS were Down 21% from the same quarter last year. Revenue came in at $1.33B versus the estimated $1.25B . Sales were Down 17% year over year.
I think he was looking for a big, one-time divy before the end of the year. I'm holding for at least the next five years as CF buys back all of its stock (which they could with the current cash flow.) Once CF has completed the new plant, cash flow will be even higher, so no reason to get nervous if you have a mid-term investment time horizon.
lol, he knew they had bad earnings & started buying stock to support the price. This is all manipulation by Cook to keep his job. When the cash is gone, the company is gone.
Nat gas was up big temporarily due to the weather, but has since fallen back. The long-term nat gas outlook is still good for CF. At these prices it cost $150 to make a ton of fertilizer they sell for over $300 (floor established at around this level last year & price has been increasing.)
lol, no telling. I actually have options positions with $2k at risk for a $5k gain & upside BE at 24.5%, then $400 downside risk with unlimited potential gain. So it'd actually benefit me more by going down, but I doubt it will.
The triangle is a short-term pattern, the cup with handle is longer-term. I see these all of the time, especially when a stock is at its all time high like this.
The school looks like it's attended by idiots. Surely such a poorly theorized paper makes Princeton the laughing stock of Ivy League schools.
From the first of the year through today, FB has been making higher lows & reaction highs bumping up against $58. This signals accumulation in an ascending triangle. This pattern is following a cup with handle that formed over the previous three months & was in the handle, accumulation phase as well. A breakout to between $62 - $70 is imminent.
All these posts about that inane study have basically convinced me that doubters know little about this stock, which makes it the perfect contrarian play. When Facebook completes its consolidation here, technical indicators point to a big 25% move which will be even larger if these dolts really are shorting the stock.
Facebook is nothing like MySpace. There was no substance to MySpace & MySpace didn't really try to monetize its business.
Facebook is to MySpace like Google is to Yahoo.
The users who only care about instant, invisible communication aren't using Snapchat or any similar social media in a manner that would generate revenue for that service. Those services will always pop up & will always die. Demographics are changing, fewer young people will be around & more middle-aged people using Facebook who spend real money, not what their parents gave them for lunch.
Not going to happen. People need a central meeting place. This was once the town square, barbershop, friends house, etc. It's now Facebook.
Without Facebook, I could not keep up with my family - it's really become essential for us to keep in touch with siblings, nephews, nieces, aunts, uncles, grandparents, etc. We plan family events via Facebook. Our family has group discussions using Facebook. I've reconnected with old friends because of Facebook & keep in touch with them. I get the majority of my news via Facebook because it's tailored to me. I conduct product research on Facebook. Using Facebook, I contact companies with comments about their products. I get notifications about product availability and new products from Facebook. I get coupons from Facebook.
