"you sound like a racist kook to me"
I hope you are not a profiler for the FBI, because you are WAY off.
I'm neutral on Obama, but thought the joke was humorous enough to cut from a different mb and paste it here, since this board seems to appreciate politics (and I thought humor).
Perhaps you have read this before, I hadn't...pilfered from another mb:
The Pope and Obama are on the same stage in Yankee Stadium in front
of a huge crowd.
The Pope leans towards Mr. Obama and said, "Do you know that with
one little wave of my hand I can make every person in this crowd go
wild with joy?
This joy will not be a momentary display, but will go deep into
their hearts and they'll forever speak of this day and rejoice!"
Obama replied, "I seriously doubt that! With one little wave of your
So the Pope backhanded him and knocked him off the stage!
AND THE CROWD ROARED & CHEERED WILDLY and there was happiness
throughout the land
Chalk it up to another wonderful RECALL; actually recallS:
"Rolaids was a brand of antacid produced by McNeil Consumer Healthcare, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. The brand was acquired from Pfizer Consumer Healthcare as part of a merger in 2006. It was invented by American chemist Irvine W. Grote in the late 1920s. As a result of multiple recalls, production was suspended by the manufacturer in 2010.
As of January 2012, the trademark for the Rolaids brand belongs to Chattem, a subsidiary of Sanofi."
silverold, you appear a tad anxious. Given JVA paid a quarterly div 4/30/12 (ex date 4/13), I think you will be flooding the board with your silly posts for another month, until you get your coveted dividend. YIKES!!
(has this APRIL's div been declared yet? According to Bloomberg, no; expect it any day...but of course, you'll have to wait until the PAYMENT DATE for the div.) Please don't forget that on the ex date, the share price will be adjusted down to reflect this event.
jmeilink, did you have an opportunity to read the post I wrote yesterday; subject "OT jmeilink"?
Why are you comparing a micro cap stock with the aggregate performance of 30 MEGA CAP stocks?
First bought 3/18/04 and added a few more times; have yet to sell a single share...I'd say that's being patient. While I may not be great at "knowing" when to sell, I do know when to say when! (hence I will not be buying any more shares of UNFI).

"Wow, I have over 200k in the market and have a private trader at Oppenhimer working my accounts. How about you? Yea I thought so. Your a child, a sick little child that thinks and write like the above. People like me who own a business and employee people run this world. #$%$ like you work for people like us."
First off, congrats on being a business owner; I'm just a lowly employee!
To some, "200k" may seem like a lot of bucks and to others, simply pocket change...that's why IMO, it's irrelevant to post position size (but percentages are rather telling). Speaking of positions, from what you posted, it seems that you were long 5000 shares of DMND, but you sold all on March 12. Was DMND part of your "over 200k"? I ask simply because 5000 shares of DMND would have been quite the outsized bet, approx 35% of your holdings--YIKES! Did your Oppenhimer (sic) "private trader" (whatever that is) suggest DMND to you? Even if she/he did not, I assume you sought that person's advice, right? Putting so much into one position is just plain WRONG. Hopefully you'll take my earlier posted advice: track your portfolio's performance v the APPROPRIATE index and determnie if your and your "private trader"'s hard work result in better performance. (and be sure not to use the Beardstown Ladies' calculator!!!) If your returns are not keeping up with an index, I strongly suggest you put at least 25% of your portfolio into VTI or VTSAX; total market index investments--they're tax efficient.
As far a who is acting like a child, what's your unbiased take on someone who posted:
"I will be here every day to slam this POS stock."?
Seems rather juvenile to me; also seems like sour grapes.
Hopefully you are rather young, so that you will have time on your side to grow your "200k".
