no info. Just common sense. Think about it. IBM is not a baseball team. Its a successful, huge corporation that puts a lot of thought into their purchases and moves. They've sold off most of the marginal profit hardware divisions, so there's nothing more to sell off. What they have now is a major, major contribution to the "cloud", software and services. What are you going to 'breakup' ? You want the stock to go down to 80 or 90 ?
you need to take control of your finances. Investing in the market is not for YOU !! Start putting your money into bank cd's. You'll sleep better.
even without Olysio, JNJ would be $110 if not for the general selloff. Olysio accounts for just a minor part of JNJ's profit picture. Lets not get 'hung up on only one facet of JNJ's success.
shes better because Carly took on a dying company (Compaq). The printer division has some value at least since Lenovo will take on anything and still show a profit. Of course , profits rely on Lenovo not presenting their employees with entitlements.
check with Liberia Air before attempting to return to the US. If you have 5 pimples, you;ll be quarantined.
IBM had the same exact scenario. They're doing fine. True some retired employees are &^%$#@ed off,but you can't make everybody happy. If you were in the CAL PERS program as a teacher in Ca., you'de be sweating your pension. How would you like to be a public works retiree in Detroit?
she left because she felt her salary was not up to par with her abilities.
donwshuper. You are correct. All of the big firms are doing the same thing when they can. I retired from a top ten firm 20 years ago and the plan is no different now then what BA is offering. My advice is to NOT take the cash. Take the annuity or a defined pension if offered. Cash can only last so long. If you are lucky and in good health, you'll run out of cash in no time. I'm collecting a pension now for 20 years. They're losing money on me.
pham , you are right in that Cramer has nothing to do with the oil supply demand. The fact is that Cramer is mostly wrong on his investment predictions.
