Changing your name and telling the same lies doesn't make them true. Copper is dropping for purely speculative reasons based on panic over economic softness. Good time to buy the stuff, really.
But you, you're a pure sell. Stuck behind your lies and with the truth pounding on your head, you'll be sold for scrap soon.
South China Morning Post, from last month:
"Macau reduced to a shuffle as mainland Chinese tourists flood in
A sense of frustration prevailed among Macau residents over the Lunar New Year as hundreds of thousands of mainland tourists swamped the city.
About 2.7 million people, mostly mainlanders and a smaller portion of Macanese, are expected to have crossed in and out of Macau at the main Gongbei Port checkpoint at Zhuhai by the end of the week-long holiday - more than five times the SAR's population of just over 550,000.
The former Portuguese colony is less than 3 per cent the size of Hong Kong and tourists were squeezing shoulder to shoulder up the lane to the Ruins of St Paul's.
In an unprecedented move, the government imposed a policed, one-way pedestrian system to ease the flow of people along the main thoroughfare, the Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro.
Newspaper vendor Ben Lai Hou-kei, whose stall has stood near the square for four decades, said it was more crowded than last Lunar New Year. "There was little planning by the government," he said. "And the ruthless pace of mainlanders conflicts with the local way of life....""
Face it, douchey, Macau is a hit, and you're not.
And this from Barron's (note that "yield up tables" means "increase per-table yield", here):
"JP Morgan Asia Gaming Takeaway: LVS, MGM, WYNN
By Shuli Ren
J.P. Morgan met with management at Las Vegas Sands (LVS), MGM Resorts (MGM), and Wynn Resorts (WYNN) and here are some of their takeaways.
On Macau, analysts Joseph Greff, Brian Mullan and Jonathan Mohraz noted:
LVS noted that yielding up its tables continues to be a daily focus at the company. LVS believes that EBITDA at Sands Cotai Central can continue to ramp, although it will not necessarily reach the levels generated by the Venetian (due to fewer tables as well as the extremely successful retail component at the Venetian).
WYNN believes that there is still an opportunity to yield up its [Macau Peninsula] tables over the next two years, noting that demand continues to outpace supply in the market. The Cotai project remains on track for an early 2016 opening.
At its existing Macau asset, MGM expects to remain in the ~9% to ~11% market share range for 2014. Regarding the Cotai project, MGM remains “very comfortable” with an early 2016 opening.
LVS noted that the go forward focus in Singapore is to grow the foreign mass component of the property
All three players believe Japan will pass the gaming legislation this year.
This year, Las Vegas Sands have gained 7.9%, MGM advanced 14.6%, and Wynn rallied 23.3%, outperforming the S&P 500‘s 1.1%."
Give it up, douchey. Real facts are easy to find.
Again you post FUD that nobody can examine online.
"Macau Casino Revenue Jumps to Record After Lunar New Year

Place your bets, folks.
Wynn Palace is going to make City of Dreams look like Stanley Ho's storage shed.
1. Nothing to do with casinos themselves, much less WYNN.
2. This practice has been public knowledge around the world for years, and the Chinese government does nothing to stop it. The reason for that is simple: they approve of it. They are far more likely to modify the law to allow transit of money into Macau than to stop Chines from going there to gamble as much as they want.
3. Nobody here ever said that the pawnshop transfers weren't happening. And that's not the money laundering you've been accusing casinos of. So your attempt to pretend otherwise is the deception here.
4. This is zero risk to Macau casinos. China is, quite to the contrary, spending $billions to improve infrastructure and facilities to increase traffic and thereby money flow to the region around and into Macau. They are benefitting hugely from the attractor that's been created there, and are encouraging it all.
5. You're the fraud, douchey.
See posts below for the whole story.
The labour market in Macau is also tight. Analysts estimate new casinos opening in 2015-2017 will require 12,600 new dealers, yet only about 700 are available per year. Macau laws dictate only locals can work as dealers, and the government is under pressure from residents who regularly take to the streets to ensure these restrictions remain.
Macau's government has also not confirmed how many new tables it will allow in the next phase of expansion for the Cotai Strip.
Casino operators, however, appear unfazed for now by these concerns, focusing instead on Macau's massive potential.
"When we come to Macau, we see potential in gaming," Francis Lui, Galaxy's deputy chairman, told Reuters in an interview. "If you add entertainment with the gaming industry together you can certainly see a super industry."
"I would not expect the share price performance to be comparable with last year but I would still foresee there would be a decent amount of growth," said Victor Yip, gaming analyst at UOB Kay Hian in Hong Kong.
With four Macau properties, Sands China raked in more revenue last year than all of the Las Vegas strip. Its shares have surged more than six-fold from their IPO price in 2009 and doubled since the last big casino opening in 2012.
While all operators in Macau are blessed with surging demand, analysts have become more selective as gaming revenue growth starts to mature.
Sands, which has more hotel rooms than the other gaming operators combined, remains a popular pick with 22 of 25 analysts awarding it a "buy" or "strong buy" rating, according to Thomson Reuters data
Galaxy is slightly less popular among analysts due to a more expensive valuation, with 20 of 26 giving it a "buy" or "strong buy" rating. Its shares, however, have surged more than 350 percent since their launch in 2011, valuing it at $40 billion.
Several factors, however, clouding the outlook for all casino operators in Macau. Slowing economic and credit growth in China may pinch high-rollers and there is uncertainty over gaming license renewals due in 2020.
Macau, one of the world's fastest growing economies for the last three years, is the only place in China where citizens can legally gamble in casinos. Located on China's southern coast, Macau gaming revenues last year were nearly three times greater than Las Vegas, Australia and Singapore combined.
Some 29 million people visited the semi-autonomous zone in 2013, and new rail and bridge connections to Hong Kong and mainland China are expected to increase those numbers. New hotel rooms opening by 2017 will double current capacity.
The bulk of Macau's 35 existing casinos lie on the former Portuguese colony's tiny peninsula, whose skyline was dominated for years by the fluorescent, onion-shaped casino of SJM Holdings Ltd, owned by the family of Macau kingpin Stanley Ho. Lack of space led developers to reclaim land for Cotai.
SJM and Sands dominate the gambling scene in Macau, together accounting for nearly half of total gaming revenues that stood at $4.8 billion in February.
But competition is expected to heat up as other casino operators expand their portfolios, potentially crimping profits.
You pasted the same thing twice; Yahoo cut it off in the same spot, and missed both the original quotes and the updated ones. Here's the rest of the story:
Galaxy, owned by Hong Kong construction tycoon Lui Che Woo, has the largest plot of land on Cotai and will still have half the area left to build on after its new resort opens next year.
Sands, in contrast, will use up the last of its Macau land for its Parisian complex, slated to open at the end of 2015.
"Sands has had a great run here with the last property to open...Clearly from the beginning of next year it is going to get tougher from a competitive standpoint," said Philip Tulk, who tracks gaming companies at Standard Chartered in Hong Kong.
Adelson, in an email to Reuters, brushed aside the competition, saying Sands China was still the dominant player in Cotai, a strip he said he created.
"I was the visionary," Adelson said of Cotai. "I filled in the swamp and the bay, and was the first company to build there."
"There is not enough land left anywhere in Cotai to catch up to the number of hotel rooms that SCL (Sands China Limited) has. Galaxy doesn't have enough land to even equal our Sands Cotai Central, which has 6,000 rooms."
Abu Dhabi is setting up a turn and burn, and then Rory will take the company into bankruptcy.
You will be the one paying them off, then holding the bag.
You keep calling the truth a lie. That adds up. The prosecutor will slam a fat file down on your head when you're being tried for fraud.
Intel will not permit Abu Dhabi to own AMD so long as AMD is party to a cross-license.
They and the Department of Defense will ensure that does not happen.
If Abu Dhabi does try to get actual control of AMD, it will be with full knowledge that they will never own any products with x86 in them. And possibly none capable of being turned into a supercomputer, due to ITAR restrictions, and that includes ATI graphics cores.
Just what, then, would Abu Dhabi own? A half-designed ARM core with no graphics component.
And the 64-bit version of _that_ may be ITAR restricted. Depends on its FPU.
So I reiterate my earlier summation: Abu Dhabi exercised its warrants in order to start selling off the shares at the last chance it has to do so before the management of the company buries it under a Chapter of the bankruptcy code (USC 11, chapter 7 Liquidation or 11 Reorganization, for those playing the home game).
First you clowns were diluted by the issuance at zero additional influx of cash, then you will soak up those shares by buying them at ridiculous prices, then you will see those shares vaporized by a rubber stamp in a county clerk's office.
