"...but if you are still in the stock, i have more advice to help you break even. you could sell at 0.0070 next week and lock in that loss of 6,67% and then re-enter the stock on the next higher low perhaps $0.0065..."
And yet, no mention of the WASH SALE RULE???
"...heck this was .40 not long ago with a little luck and some buyback..."
Do you really believe that a "buyback" (if even possible!!!) would be the best course of action for this nascent company? How about plowing any "excess" funds back into growing the business? Or...would you prefer management moves that are solely based on managing the stock price?
I'd say VPOR reaching .40 was NOT based on any fundamental reason, but simple hype of the industry and retail "investor" demand.
bill, so it's not just me (lol).
IF LWAY were sold, I believe the flagship products would excel in the marketplace. I only noted "flagship", since the PR's always state that these limited categories generate the vast majority of revenues. Given that, I have always wondered why lil LWAY has acquired some tiny brands...can you say FirstJuice? These tiny brands HAVE REMAINED TINY. (Compared to HAIN, a company that has excelled at creating increased value with its acquisitions.)
I keep an eye on my sugar intake, and LWAY's kefir has 20g of sugar per 8 ounces (one reason I only consume about 4 ounces/day). I'm curious to sample LWAY's "new" "Perfect 12" kefir that is sweetened with Stevia. I've always felt LWAY's kefir is TOO SWEET and maybe Perfect 12 will taste even sweeter, but I have not been able to buy this product, let alone the "new" "oats" kefir. LWAY has a lot of flavors of its kefir, but I have only witnessed about five of them on my local food store shelves. This is what I was getting at in my previous post...lots of products and presumably revenue and EARNINGS potential, but they are not being let loose on the consumer. Of course, with extremely LIMITED MARKETING, would the consumer even care?
The kids (and let's not forget about MOM!!!) have a great thing going: while I'm not a compensation expert, it appears the kids overall compensation is quite generous and THE family controls the show. Why would the kids want to give that up? They are young and presumably want to be active, and LWAY is the perfect front.
Of course, KMI isn't really an "gas and oil" company in the manner most think of "gas and oil".
As far as buying real oil stocks, you give the green light if one plans to hold for a whopping YEAR?
"BTW.... why did it take over 4 days to post the cash portion? "
Did/does KMI control the operational aspects of the deal or is it the transfer agent?
"i just decided to buy another 17k "
Or in other words, you spent about 100 bucks for your new shares, right?
(Just as easy to lose 100 bucks at a casino)
It appears that the "all stock" option was oversubscribed, therefore those who opted for "all stock" received some cash. There was a finite number of new KMI shares.
As previously noted several times (over a year now lol), I became very wary of PLSB promoting "distribution" over everything else. I wondered if PLSB even had (has) the capacity to produce enough product (or to have contract manufactured) to warrant so many distributors!!!
Fun to watch, but that's it.
Time will tell whether CVX will outperform PG going forward. Given PG's recent move, I wanted to take a bit off the table, and when I saw CVX's Friday decline, I decided to swap a few shares. With my execution prices, I'm picking up 107 bps in yield. Am I too early re CVX? Maybe, but I think over the long run, I'll do fine; I added approx. 41% to my CVX position. Heck, after my first CVX buy six years ago, CVX declined 14% by the time I reinvested my first dividend!
Getting back to PG, thanks for your thoughtful posts.
I have to say I agree with Julie re govt regs!
It's great that Julie is involved with causes she is passionate about, but how much TIME do her outside activities TAKE AWAY FROM HER RUNNING lil LWAY?
LWAY has some very nice products and IMO there is much potential, but I've been thinking this for YEARS.
Sure, sales have risen, but from a relatively small base. I'd prefer to have Julie spend all of her efforts on GROWING LWAY. Of course, with the status quo, Julie gets to have her cake and eat it too!
It would be nice to see the newer incarnations of LWAY's kefir on the shelves of my local WFM; not having these products being distributed is an example of what Julie should be working on, rather than her causes (and recovering from jet lag--LWAY's product reach is too narrow to get jet lag from a BUSINESS trip!)
1992 for me; taxable account (vtsax is very tax efficient)
As for my KMI and KMI-WT, they're in my ROTH.
the poster could care less...SHE'S A SPAMMER!!!
(simply click on the poster's name and you'll its posting history)
This morning I sold about 27% of my PG @ 90.02 that is held in my Roth and used the proceeds to add to my CVX position.
Sno: haven't heard from you in awhile; are you taking any shares off the table at this level?
"I'm heavy FBIOX in my 401k, so holding, and all future contributions will go to S&P 500 index fund."
Sounds reasonable--depending on your definition of "heavy".
Some people frown on owning a tax efficient investment such as a S & P 500 index fund in a tax favored account, but not me given how S & P 500 funds have outperformed a majority of actively managed funds.
I took some biotech off the table (in my ROTH) in January, having held my position for 10+ years (dismal ride until a few years ago; and who's to say a repeat won't happen again!).
I'm planning to hold my remaining shares, but not adding.
