Given the volume, I'd say a lot of people are selling!
First two paragraphs of a Bloomberg article titled "Crown Castle Drops as Disappointing Outlook Overshadows Dividend":
"Crown Castle International Corp. (CCI) slid the most in three years as a disappointing 2015 forecast overshadowed the wireless-tower company’s plans to more than double its dividend.
Crown Castle said adjusted funds from operations will be $4.31 to $4.37 a share in 2015, compared with the $4.47 average estimate of analysts compiled by Bloomberg. Rental revenue will increase about 4 percent in 2015, with growth dragged down because the new owners of tenants like MetroPCS Communications Inc. and Leap Wireless International Inc. have decided not to renew a significant amount of leases, the company said yesterday."
Simply Google the article's title and you will be able to access the entire story.
I imagine a lot of people (but not me) idolize Tim Cook for his business acumen.
Interesting article re asset managers attempting to get a piece of the ETF action, titled "Blow to asset managers in ETF arena" dated 10/30 and located below TROW YahooFinance quote.
Well paul, there is an increasing buzz about the Ink Block WFM that will come on line in 2015.
Even though the building's not even close to being completed, there are already two very large "Whole Foods Market' signs on two sides of it. (and there will be parking!)
Some holders of the MLPs have shorted KMI and they will cover their short with the KMI shares they receive when the deal is closed.
"...risk and rewards come together..."
Yup, investors of biotech are reaping the "rewards", but there have been times when the "risk" was more evident and that will happen again. I've been invested for over ten years; the ride from point A to B was painful at times.
Presently biotech is a favored sector, but a hot sector today is not always the hot sector tomorrow (see sector rotation). Over the long haul, I believe in biotech, but I remain realistic as far as possible, immediate future returns. My position in my ROTH is "only" represents 5.8% of that account.
Hey! What do you know, a newly minted "exotic" ID from (perhaps) the one person behind so many, NOT EVEN ENTERTAINING, posts.
What's up with "sez"; obviously we have a youngster among us.
I imagine the only time she thinks, is when she is taxed with the task of creating a new ID.
"It's sad, so sad
It's a sad, sad situation
And it's getting more and more absurd"!!!!!
Well, I'm glad you got that off your chest.
Just last night, I bought some farmed salmon at WFM for 12.99/lb, and guess what? I grilled it at home.
Buying BDBD is way out of HAIN's wheelhouse.
HAIN has made many rather small acquisitions; Tilda deal, one of it's biggest buys, if not the largest, was for $357M.
BDBD wont' entertain anything below $1B.
Of course, one never knows, but I surely hope HAIN does not buy BDBD.
It seems apparent that most BDBD longs have given up on BDBD making it on its own and have resorted to the hope card! It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
"imbeciles ............ travel in packs"
Surely you are referring to the small group of posters with "exotic" names, the ones that never really discuss the company and only attempt to sling mud at the knowledgeable posters, right?
"I keep warning you and have been for almost a year"
And to THINK, no one has ever acted on your "advice".
Time for you to change your schtick!!!
Atkins appears to have nice credentials and it's probably favorable to have 9 of 11 of STKL's directors being independent...but...how many directors are "necessary" to guide this tiny company???
"Toronto, October 28, 2014 - SunOpta Inc. (NASDAQ:STKL) (TSX:SOY), a leading global company focused on natural, organic and specialty foods, today announced the appointment of M. Shan Atkins to its Board of Directors.
Ms. Atkins joins as an independent director and brings more than three decades of broad business experience to SunOpta, including development and execution of strategic plans for major retail organizations, deep expertise in finance and accounting, and extensive experience as a director of other publicly traded corporations in both the United States and Canada. Her appointment increases the total number of Company directors to eleven, including nine independent directors."
"drunkenmasterfoo is suggesting to WFM(if they are reading this board) to make an investment in Eberly's and resurrect the Eberly farm and processing plant."
I just re-read her posts and I didn't see anything about her suggesting WFM invest in Eberly.
"If you own the stock why dont you know when ex div date is. I never owned a stock without knowing that. People who dont know these simple things should not be in the equities market period."
Well your sentiment seems a tad harsh. Had you written about not knowing what "ex-div" is, I might be in agreement. I have NO idea of the ex dates of the numerous equity positions I own; I'm not clear how knowing an ex date is beneficial--especially for investors (read long term holders).
"...i am not as desperate as you." Come again???
"and what makes you think someone from my local WFM meat dept even want to listen to me?"
After reading your posts, I'm going to agree with you and state it is unlikely ANYONE from WFM would want to listen to you. That said, my suggestion was an obvious one; who would know more about the sourcing of the meat offerings than the meat dept head or the manager of a specific store.
This does not change the fact that I was able to quickly ascertain via the web: Eberly is 86!!!
Opinions are subjective.
P.S. Are you published?
