From The SA Article...how good is his research?..
When contacted by phone at home in Las Vegas, Dr. Frei, famed for his work in finding treatments for childhood leukemia, said that he had heard Menon's name before but could not remember how or why. A close family member who double-checked with Dr. Frei's secretary said that Dr. Frei, who suffers from Parkinson's disease, is not acting as a scientific advisor for Menon's company.

Is this the move we have all been waiting for?...heavy volume in the last 45 minutes...Any news from the company and this will be back to $13 in 2 weeks....GO AA
Ridiculous post....Drop before the ex-dividend because of the dividend?....Do you know what the payout is?..A whopping 3 pennies...we move more than that in 15 minutes with the current volatility...Maybe it will move down but it will not be caused by this insignificant 3 penny reduction in stock price....get serious
"Typically, we are not inclined to release news on Fridays, but we wanted to share this – what we consider to be fantastic – news immediately with our shareholders",,, What was the urgency of the press release on Friday, and his need to mention that in the letter to shareholders?. This was in advance of a three day holiday weekend. Any thoughts on the timing?. Will we get a subsequent release on Tuesday?.... Not only do I find his letter mentioning shorts unusual, but why the mention of the need for Friday release of information?
$.28 earning last qtr with 7% rev growth...continuing to sell off older technology businesses...growth in Aerospace?...Ford said to have plants retrofitted for new F150 trucks with Aluminum body...This should have a very bright future...Any thoughts on what is keeping this thing down?...Is this mostly a result of the strong dollar?...can't find any negative other than that...
So I don't usually respond on message boards but this situation is needing an additional comment....The $11 prognosticator on CNBC sounds like a blithering idiot. He comes up and tops off JPM downgrade price target of $18.50 with his own number of possibly as low as $11......Who are you kidding. Alcoa has only started to see the benefits of their product in the Ford F150's...they are also under contract to begin with the Chevy Silverado in 2017 or so....and Aerospace...just getting going there too...sure this stock could have some bumps in the road but I am tired of these "carnival barkers" yelling fire as they chase you to the exits...These comments are made totally from the cuff and are of no value and are a disservice to the industry..CNBC gets should get no more of our air time in this time slot until that guy is replaced...that was totally 100% uncalled for and without any research or merit...do they not know that the turnaround at AA is not tied totally to aluminum. They are value add---the alloy's and creation of the alloy's have margins that can more than offset any down turn in Aluminum prices...This is going much higher in the next 18-24....mos......
So the price Target is still 18. So why isn't it still a buy or overweight?. If I was going to get better than a 5% upside I would want to be overweight ...yes, their target was 20 but 18 is still a BUY BUY BUY....just another way for them to manipulate it down to maximize their profit when they jump in. Alcoa has many avenues to generate growth (and profit will follow).... Buy on the dip gang
wont happen, not even when interest rates go up...we still have lot's of room for expansion
The prospect of this inversion is ridiculous for Walgreens/Boots to consider. The people at Goldman know that but they are here just for the transaction revenue it can create while this is going on. Think about this. Walgreens is a 100% Consumer Based Company....That is a completely different scenario than GE, Caterpillar or some other large conglomerate taking operations or manufacturing oversees. Walgreens is a name and a place where almost all Americans have done some business...How many GE or Caterpillar stores have you been in lately?.....The consumer is very brand loyal and still very American. CVS will have a heyday if they can advertise that they are an American Company paying and supporting the US Tax system unlike their competitor, Walgreens. To me this looks more like a power struggle with Boots trying to gain an upper hand in the management of the company. Walgreens has lost two PR battles in the past 4 yrs...They lost the battle with Express Scripts and CVS came out on top in sentiment with their move to stop selling tobacco products. The financial saving in tax that this move would save would be lost in quick order. Walgreens revenue in the US would drop quickly and stores would have to be closed......maybe that is really what Goldman and the folks at Boots would like to see happen....Interesting one to follow here
The first thing they will do is unseat all that cash and then sit on it...a company in their position (losing money) will not buy back stock or pay a dividend.....they won't acquire anyone....If anything they might be acquired...lowering costs(headcount and facility reduction) makes their position more attractive to a suitor....none of your three options will never happen
I agree, this is positive for all but the 520 souls who lost their job. Cost cutting is necessary if you are looking to be bought...Lower the costs and headcount. Makes it much more attractive...Someone gobbles this up and can absorb the lost workers with their current staff....There has been speculation on this board for sometime about a buyout....This would be a logical first step.....If internet gambling makes it through Congress this is a nice target for a large Casino operation.....Games alone may not be enough. If Gambling passes, they need to have their costs in line....I think this was done with future suitors in the hunt
If he doesnt resign he should be forced out by shareholders and the board. How can such pertinent information be presented at a conference and not in a public press release. Does this guy not know he heads up a PUBLIC COMPANY?. We just got through a set of class action shark attacks and now he has put more blood in front of them.....HE IS OUR CEO.....We need some PR help...This is a great company with great prospects for the future and this young gun PHD keeps shooting holes in the shareholders confidence and wallets....LET MAKE A CHANGE.....This should have been made public to everyone Jason....NOW get those margins up....
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Spoke to Lona Cornish this morning....She immediately told me Ed Smith would have to answer my question.Of course all I could do was leave a voicemail,as he was not taking calls. That was some two hours ago and I still haven't heard back... I don't expect that I will hear back.......The do owe us and explanation....
Here is the press release when they mentioned year end results on 56...we get the information on May 10th...9 days after the stockholders meeting....very fishy wouldnt you say?...
Remember the good ole days when the words "Fast-track" were in our vocabulary?...Wait, it is still possible.."fast-track to oblivion"...
We need action quickly...are you reading this Lisa...?...Pass to Nic
