He confused deficit for debt. It's the deficit that is shrinking.
The debt is of course expanding because the deficits and expenses and conflicts Obama inherited were cataclysmic. But blaming Obama for that is just you confusing Obama for Bush.
The rest of what you wrote is paranoid anti-governmental parrot-fodder planted there by propagandists who want you to vote against your own enlightened self-interest so they can continue to rip off the population and the treasury by gutting regulation and internal controls.
Government is shrinking rapidly under Obama.
QE prevented a huge deflationary period that would have turned the recession into the largest depression ever.
Stop listening to that radio show or watching that television station. They are lying to you.
Why did you feel the need to come back and post this after posting your reply that, because YHOO is a bunch of dopes, appears below? You totally changed your attitude in the space of a few hours, just to insult me. There's something about being long AMD that makes longs do that sort of thing. AMD should be outlawed just for the perversion of logic it induces in people who have to justify their own mistakes.
AMD isn't Global Foundries. A couple of years ago, Global Foundries gave up its guaranteed payments (after a set price AMD is still paying) so it could seek out other customers. It made major expansion and diversification moves, which you are seeing in your neighborhood. It did these things specifically because it doesn't trust AMD to meet its projections. I'd say invest in GF, but you can't, because they're private, wholly owned by ATIC, which is wholly owned by Mubadala, which is the sovereign fund of the government of Abu Dhabi, which is owned by the Emir of Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. And because they have this huge risk hanging over them in the fact that AMD could disappear and GF would lose all of the business that AMD is still bringing them, which I think the Emir wouldn't mind.
The bus just backed over you, because you don't know how to look both ways before stepping into a busy street.
You'll be gone as soon as you clue up and realize AMD isn't worth risking your money in.
I'll leave when this message board is deleted because AMD no longer exists. And yes, I have a rather good life. And lots and lots of former shareholders' money is paying for it. Probably some of yours, as well.
I get cash for every gum wrapper I draw the AMD logo on and sell to rubes like you.
Those companies pump or buy oil, ship it, crack it, and sell it all the way to the end user, and make a profit on the difference.
They are exposed to price fluctuation only at the well. They're still making money from millions of gas stations and all of the intermediate operations, as a percentage, at any price, where MLPs are completely exposed to the price itself as a gate on their operations. And larger companies have a built-in buffer in their size and assets, so they don't have to change their number of wells or drilling as quickly.
The only way an MLP can protect itself is by selling futures when oil is high. When prices drop, and futures run out, profits disappear and something has to give. Preserving assets by shutting down operations is one obvious recourse. The other is selling out.
I tried them, and only won $3. 50% ROI, but hardly worth the trip to the convenience store.
Let's work on that. Mm-kay?
If January is as big a drop, it could be that bad, but the adjustment of holiday periods might be discounted.
We're near the bottom, if we haven't already seen it.
China needs to start rehabilitating the bad rap it's given Macau, and doing things to guide its whales back there, instead of driving them out of the country entirely to do their whale thing.
Given the amount they're investing in transport infrastructure and on Hengqin (the large island adjacent to Cotai that is being developed as a non-gaming resort area, making it an ideal destination for visitors who want to gamble but don't want to sleep in Macau), it's in the government's interest to keep Macau on top in terms of growth.
By that you mean go to one world currency.
Yes, that's a good idea, but it has a flaw: Sovereigns don't want to give up their ability to print money when necessary to buy the implements of power (or war), and to stabilize or destabilize interaction with other sovereigns' people.
They'd basically be giving up a big chunk of what it means to be sovereign, and would become governors instead of kings.
So, good luck with that. There are a lot of countries where the graft is good and being a member of the world society is not yet an acceptable thing.
Yup. Biggest and most obvious and predictable driver for any company in the stock market. Thank the king of China for the discount you're getting.
It wasn't personal, it was metaphorical.
AMD isn't turning around. At best, it's found the brake pedal and is now careening a little slower towards the same cliff it's always been pointed at.
People come in here and assume they're seeing the whole picture, when they are not. AMD executives are masters at making you ignore the piles of bodies and the rats running around everywhere, by pointing out now nicely the palace-facade renovations are coming along.
That's another metaphor. Don't call the CDC to report it.
Until we see short interest in the region of 300-400 million shares, there really should be no issue. But when that happens there might be no price to be had.
I've been shorting since it was in the 40s.
Today is just another day.
No, if the stock moves "your way", you adjust the stop-loss your way as well. You don't adjust it the other way when the stock moves against you again. So it always triggers at a set point away from the best price you've seen so far. It's called a trailing stop, and can be automated.
The danger in them is that the stock will spike momentarily, close your position, then run the other way; and the trades it produces do not account for the facts immanent in the move. The stochastics of market volatility mean that any mechanical trading method, including primary reliance on "technical analysis," has equivalent pitfalls and is inferior to diligence.
Good call. May be some fluctuation, but that's just another excuse to add to your position.
I don't get why you think you're having trouble locating shares; the MMs and institutions have hundreds of millions that can't be locked. They're practically advertising them on bus stops. Your broker is hosing you.
First, you mean INTC, not INTL. Rookie mistake.
Second, I'm here because, as you've been told before, I've been short this stock for nearly a decade, and have done my part here to keep people informed of the truth about AMD.
You don't have to like this stock to post here.
Now shut up and watch quietly while the adults talk about things you don't yet understand.
I think I'm going to buy one of these. I could afford a GTX Titan Z or Radeon R9 295X2, of course, but I don't want to have to add a circuit breaker to my house just to play GTA V. This might just run silent in my PC. The GTX 670 almost does, and is rated for 30% higher TDP but at much lower zoot.
Oh, and no, I would never buy an R9. I just didn't want to leave it out and let the trolls mention it so I'd have to refute whatever nonsense they'd claim about it.
Su is clearly making some changes. But so did Rory. And Rory brought in some sexy business. But Su doesn't have that kind of huckster talent, and it's too late for AMD to pretend it can be a leader again.
AMD is carrying $2 billion in debt that paid for things that AMD no longer owns.
How would you like to be paying for the mortgage on a mansion you bought when you were a successful ballplayer, when you're now living in a rented window van and selling beanie babies at swap meets?
Your fastball isn't coming back, and AMD is done as well.
Declare BK, send the creditors away, and then come back to make only those products that can get the greatest margins and lead to future excellence in technology.
But what segment should that be? Being the king of console gaming? What a joke. Getting destroyed by titanic competitors in PC and server and mobile? Not survivable. Graphics? Slipping farther behind every day.
In reality, there may be nothing AMD can lead in; no moat at all. The fake barrier put up by owning ATI isn't doing the job, and there's nowhere to dig another.
Don't forget, Intel was so far ahead it built a whole fab and fallowed it for a couple of years, and the competitors still couldn't catch up.
