They are not even spammers. These are just automatic posts directed at every Yahoo message board. Same message. Generic...ever freakin' board. Computer generated.
I own YHOO stock and I believe YHOO has to get this k_rap under control. I come hear for opinions about the stock. C'mon Yahoo...fix this. Are they paying you to let them spam away? I suspect they are.
Sheesh..next they'll let them post porn on the MBs.
True story. I got a mailer that yesterday, Feb 11, was a private sale, Presidents Day sale at JAB. 2 for 1 on everything. I wanted to get some more travelers shirts (my favorite) but only when they are on sale. I used to get 3 for 1...for around $100. I go in yesterday at 2pm and no one in the store but two clerks. No signage. I have the mailer with me that says it needs to be scanned to get my "savings". The two clerks were totally unaware there was a Feb 11 "sale". The travelers shirts are $79.90 ea, so even as that wasn't as good a deal as in the past...at around $40/shirt vs. the old $33 that wasn't outrageous.
She scans the coupon and says it's 2 for $109. I asked how come the shirt is listed as $79 but it's $109 if I want 2 for 1? Their prices are all over the place and totally unpredictable. She shrugged and said she didn't know. They don't tell them anything.
I told her since Mens Warehouse bought them JAB had really changed. Again, she shrugged and said, "Tell me about it."
I'm done. Not going back. I'd short the stock if I had any gonads.
I've bought and sold MT a couple times in the past 20 yrs. It is not going out of business.
It can get cheaper from here and if it does I hope to keep buying it. There is no doubt in my mind that MT will be back above $10 within a year or two or three. Doesn't matter. At $3/share this stock will return 200-300% in a few years. What is it they said...the market can remain irrational longer than you can stay liquid. Just don't go crazy. Be smart. Own some of MT at this price. Over time you'll be rewarded.
probably before Obama leaves office, someone in the middle east is going to try something incredibly stupid that will flip the world oil markets into turmoil.
You cannot, not own oil and energy stocks at these process. I fully understand the prices may go down even more, but if they do, the snap back will be even more profound. I feel like the energy markets are like a giant rubber band being pulled and pulled and stretched and strained....something is going to go kaflooie and the price will reverse. Maybe a 10-20% tum then slow rise....but don't be surprised if something like Iran and the Saudis go at it that doesn't cause the $ to double overnight. I'm not predicting this...but believe it's very possible.
Merely saying store was empty on a special price sale day that I had been invited to by a mailing because I was considered a VIP customer and the sales staff was unaware of it and the floor pricing of the product was different than the computer pricing. Never experienced that before MW buyout and sales staff seemed discouraged and ambivalent.
I won't be shorting the stock. Watch for the Nordstrom report this week. If it's bad it will be worse at TLRD.
Doug Kass in Barrons re. MONIF...April '14. I believe it was around $1 when he mentioned it. It's at 3 cent now. Yes...3 cents.
Monitise [MONI.UK] is a London company that provides a platform for payments on mobile devices. It trades in London and over the counter in the U.S. [MONIF]. I see this as at least a five-bagger. There is probably no larger business than the mobile-payments industry. This company has a market cap of about $1.2 billion, and could well be one of the most important disrupters in the mobile-payments industry.
I have owned MOS for sometime and have taken a beating, yet I am not..if ever...going to sell the stock. It's just math. The world needs to eat. The world's population is growing. People, slowly but surely, are becoming more prosperous and want to improve their diets. Fertilizer and phosphorus will always be in demand.
I've said this before that MOS would be the kind of company Berkshire Hathaway would want to own. Management would sell to Buffett in 2 seconds as he always maintains current management. Heck, if Buffett wants to own car dealerships why wouldn't he want to own fertilizer? MOS is boring. MOS is well managed. MOS has a very nice balance sheet.
I'm not predicting BRK.A would ever buy MOS...to me it's just the kind of company they would be interested in. Whatever, I am holding MOS for the foreseeable future. I believe it will be $100/sh in 5 yrs.
I think t's going to be Bernie vs. Cruz when it's all said and done. Bernie absolutely is going to beat Clinton. No question in my mind.
I wouldn't say it's quite a classic head and shoulder. I will say, however, that a nice bold move of the 20 dma above the 50 dma is quite powerful. For me the next target is to get above $6. $8 would be tremendous accomplishment over next 6 mos. I just like higher highs and higher lows at it stair steps it's way back to some semblance of fair value.
What is the subscription price? Or is that yet to be determined. I see Thursday as the date. 35% below closing price? Today's? Or tomorrow's?
I see these rights are now in my account. I also see they are not trading. They appear to be priced and they are down .04, the same as the common. But no shares have traded. Right?
Yesterday's low was $473. If it breaks that you could be right. I actually see it wanting to get back into the $490's today.
They're trying to pin this on the CFO and he's saying, "uh, uh....not going to let you hang me out to dry." He's probably all lawyered up right now. I suspect, if there are any, he knows where the bodies are buried and he's using that leverage with the board and Ackman to get a nice exit package with no admission of guilt and probably a nice big "thank you for your service".
How are they going to start mining with that paltry amount of cash? Have they built access to their site? Roads? Buildings? There's nothing up there. Where are the workers going to live?
Borrow money? Sell equity?
When? Or are they just going to string everyone along until Elon Musk shows up and buys the whole company?
