Hopefully twoday clarified your confusion.
Bottom line: looking at a company's share price in a vacuum is folly.
Start with looking at two company's MARKET CAP (share price X number of outstanding shares)
In my parts, I believe "prepared" (read cooked) farmed salmon goes for 18.99/lb; uncooked farm raised was recently lowered to 10.99/lb, but quickly went to 11.99/lb.
After NEVER having purchased an inferior (part of a) salmon filet at WFM, I did so with the "discount" farmed. Different vendor.
1984 for my 7; number two pencil etc. and wait a week or two for results. Fast forward and now (and for some time) exams are done on a computer and results are known seconds after completion of the exam.
I know a bit about the penny arena given who sponsored me for the 7: Stuart James. I was only there for a few months, but I had my 7!
Wisdom is gained over time via experiences.
July 8: "VAPE gaps higher tomorrow"
No worries, there's always tomorrow; reminds me of a song!
PG is not alone; apparently consumers prefer buying a smaller amount for the same dollar (and having to buy items more frequently). Some day product sizes will be so small resulting with the consumer products companies introducing New! Larger Size!
P.S. Couldn't you have picked an actual PG product????
"At the 1967 Grammy Awards, "Up, Up and Away" was named Record of the Year and Song of the Year."
Performed by 5th Dimension.
I was first introduced to "this" song via the TWA ad.
Nor will he lose anything!!!!--unlike most holders of VAPE; I'd say it's safe to write that most longs have lost multiple dimes.
"I bought PFE, MRK and JNJ a few years ago at low cost basis but didn't stick with them, unfortunately."
Even though "buy and hold" has been ridiculed over the recent few years, that pretty much describes me.
(Around 2000, dividends were declared "dead"; how times have (NOT) changed lol.)
I reinvest most of my dividends, so there has been a silver lining when the market has dipped; I may have a different take when I'm taking all my divs in cash. My longest holding period: XOM (originally MOB) bought 7/1/71--now if I had only reinvested the divs...
I suggest you check out some Seeking Alpha posts re dividend investing.
Simply Google "dividend aristocrat Seeking Alpha or "dividend investing Seeking Alpha"
Also check out the posts written by "dividend growth investor"
Check out the comment sections as well.
"Only 27 percent of actively managed large-cap core funds, or 239 funds, have beat the S&P 500 in the first half of the year..."
This is why I am a fan of VTSAX, Vanguard's Total Market Index Fund (or its cousin VTI).
I'm in the same camp as the fund managers; up 4.57% for the first half v S&P's 7.31% and VTSAX' 6.99% total returns. Approx. 27% of my holdings are in Total Market funds (or in other words, my other funds and my individual equities really didn't fare too well during the first half!--of course, six months is a very short time frame.
Not me, but to be fair, what KIND of salmon was offered at 27.99/lb?
The WFM markets I frequent offer King Salmon (uncooked) for around that price.
Then again, who buys Patagonian Toothfish for around 23.99/lb (yup, the same fish that once was primarily used for fish sticks!)
Cool...again, I'm just an observer and am not as fluent with FWM as you.
It will be interesting to see what Sterling does next.
I believe I am correct in stating that Sterling, in effect, BOUGHT Fairway and SOLD a lot of their shares via the IPO and subsequent share sales. (And to boot, they took a nice dividend pre-IPO--to the financial detriment of FWM).
Sterling MAY control FWM with its B shares, but its ownership is MUCH SMALLER than it was pre IPO.
Sterling has had its cake and was able to eat most of it.
Hence, "Sterling buys and sells companies" is an accurate header.
Sure, Sterling may attempt to sell FWM (again), but that is not the typical play out of the private equity playbook.
See what happens.
"VAPE gaps higher tomorrow"
When all else fails, pull the "tomorrow" card--YIKES!!
In keeping with your "tomorrow" theme, may I suggest you sing out loud:
"The sun'll come out tomorrow
Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow
there'll be sun
Just thinkin' about tomorrow
Clears away the cobwebs and the sorrow till' there's none
When I'm stuck in the day that's gray and lonely
I just stick up my chin and grin and say oh
The sun'll come out tomorrow
So you got to hang on
till' tomorrow, come what may!
Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya, tomorrow
You're only a day away!
When I'm stuck with a day that's gray and lonely
I just stick up my chin and grin and say....
The sun'll come out tomorrow
So you got to hang on till' tomorrow, come what may!
Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love you tomorrow
You're only a day away
Tomorrow, tomorrow I love you tomorrow
You're always a day away ..."
"Priceline is down 30 today"
It is folly to make a statement about a company's share price, by itself.
Let's go to the tape, shall we?
As of the writing of this post, PCLN is dowm 2.11% (or 26.24)
Vape is down 12.55% (or .31)
The devil is in the details!
I'm not part of the DMND class, but I have participated in a few actions. In those cases, my positions were rather small, thus the "reward" of the actions was really not worth the effort. In a couple cases, I attempted to make a claim, but apparently I did not complete the form correctly!
Generally speaking, the total award is determined; how much each class member receives depends upon how many shares they owned AND how many qualified class members made a claim (class members benefit when other potential class members opt not to participate in a claim!)
From what I have read, it seems that the reward from the DMND action may amount to more than a few dollars or shares; again, I'm not a member of the class, but am curious what others end up receiving.
On another note, I bought a bag of Kettle Maple Bacon chips. Like the concept, but IMO, the execution is lacking. (Of course, I bought the chips when they were on sale. In the past, there were frequent price sales of DMND's products and that irked me and I posted as such...nice to see current management shares my perspective re frequent marketing via price).
