..."These money managers don't know how to fix it. " ... A tad overly simplistic, eh? Any chance they might have contacts that know the industry, and CAN fix it?... or, maybe it's just better off being liquidated.. something I'm pretty sure they DO KNOW how to do... and at what price? I'm figuring liquidation is, worst case, north of $10/share... maybe more after a couple of more years of Obama fine tuning our energy industry!
I guess we'll have to see... But the market is valuing the shares much higher than your top estimate ($2.80) right now.
Wrong.. They now own 25% of KCG! For every dollar they spend they get an automatic guaranteed return. TD just bought themselves a "low cost" transaction machine....
What the value if they are doing 100% of Ameritrade's transaction flow? Because I'm pretty sure they will be....
What will a dog do when you grab it by the neck and shake it vigorously?
Why it will YELP, of course.... seems an appropriate description of YELP's interaction with business owners, and YELP's business model.
YELP starts the process by posting empty business tags from various sources, and then passively collects customer reviews of each business under those tags. YELP initially filters out extremely negative and extreme positive reviews so that the business review average gravitates toward 3 stars.
Once there are a sufficient number of reviews, the YELP marketing team goes to work. They contact the business owner and trys to get them to "buy advertising" on YELP. If the owner declines, the negative reviews that were filtered out start getting released and filtered in.... This pushes the average rating down, away from 3 stars to a much lower rating.
Conversely, the business owner that "signs up" for YELP's advertising starts to see their rating rise, because the overly positive filtered out reviews start to get filtered in bringing the businesses average up....
Cleaver... Yes? .... But a sustainable business model... I don't think so!
YELP..... Shaking down the dog!
I'm thinking yes!
It most likely is the cause...
As I was reading it, I couldn't help but think of the USS Arizona.. It's still leaking oil 68 years after it was sunk.....
If BP drops every time oil is spotted in the gulf, it's the gift of a buying opportunity from the shorts.
What's going on with this board?
In a sick kind of masochistic way.... I'm starting to like you!
Good Luck Duck... but not on this one!!! ;)
You are... Seldom right, but never in doubt!
Think about it!
