jrgorel: tread carefully when seeking advice on message boards.
To answer your question "what is this", well, it's called SPAM!
Click on the poster's name and you'll see her posting history; multiple SPAM posts re apru.
I always thought loss leaders were priced really low and sometimes perhaps even lower than cost...milk comes to mind. I hope you were being sarcastic.
I've been long AMT since 11/3/99 @ 19.94; all was good for a few quarters...
I now only own my lowest cost basis shares @ 6.65 which were bought on the way DOWN lol.
I've been long CCI & SBAC for somewhat a somewhat similar timeframe and I have sold shares of both of those companies as well--sold a few SBAC yesterday.
Perhaps you are familiar with Rapid Ratings. The founder of that firm is on BloombergTV and presumably CNBC. Rapid Ratings creates ratings on public companies that have outstanding debt and sells this data via a subscription.
Most recent Rapid Ratings 1 - 100 with 100 best:
What RR attempts to do is to rate the possibility of default.
On another note, I just watched a BloombergTV interview with Carson Block re NQ Mobile. As noted earlier, I find what he has to say rather interesting.
I don't think I noted, in an earlier post, that he did scare me a year ago and I did sell a few AMT shares because of what he was saying about AMT--that and because I wanted to raise some cash...Carson made it easier for me to choose which position to lighten up--obviously the wrong move.
Being long the tower stocks has been an interesting ride from point A to B!
I'm with you re REITS; I own two, AMT & CCI by default.
The div has been increased a penny or two for each successive payout.
Bloomberg terminal shows .36 forecast for the Oct payout. That's all I can share; perhaps others will be able to chime in.
Do I own shares?
Just trying to help out less experienced folks.
I also get somewhat entertained by reading some posts.
I'm also a "consumer" and like to see what is going on in the weed trade.
How did I get here? VAPE was SPAMMED on another board.
"who would pay $28/lb for cooked salmon"
Again what KIND of salmon?
No one buys the $28/lb salmon; it's just a prop for the atmosphere.
Gee, if no one bought it, WFM would discontinue offering it...BUT, since WFM allegedly offers $28/lb cooked salmon, I'm going with some customers do buy it.
In my parts, the cooked salmon (farm raised) goes for upper teens/lb.
"26M shares will be bought"
Assuming the share price doesn't move up or down much from where it is for many months!
While a low share price sometimes attracts suitors, I thought the "plan" was for FWM to grow its business and its share price will follow.
Have you abandoned hope and are now looking for a graceful exit?
