  • BofA and JPMorgan make agreement on consumer bankruptcies [View news story]
    buckoux

    Perhaps those who pay fines to any federal or state agency for wrongdoing should be required to list said offenses on their door in apartment buildings and on their lawns if the own a house. We should also list convictions and non payment of a debt in a timely basis. In 2008 their were 55 million Americans that owed the IRS. We do want transparency in our neighborhoods don't we.
    tongue in cheek

    YOUR JOB IS TO REPORT THE UNBIASED NEWS NOTHING MORE

    I agree that all financial firms should follow the law, however you should follow the unwritten laws of your profession either report it unbiased or print the word commentary as you were suppose to do

  • No surprises from BofA's annual meeting [View news story]
    GWYNFRYN

    Back in the days of my time in the brokerage subsidiary during the period 1973-1979 we were asked every year for a copy of our proxy reports by the several examiners that came through. I doubt if any broker would not send out a proxy because you got paid for doing the job on a per piece basis. I do not know if the rule has changed but those with foreign addresses were exempt from mailings. It was the duty of the foreign addressee to ask in writing to get proxy material (I hope they did change the rule for fairer treatment of foreign investors) I know that we sent letters back then to all our foreign clients advising them what they should do. Back then most foreign holders did not want to vote so my guess that maybe 2% actually voted.

    There was a record date of which only holders on that date gets to vote. I assume you were not a registered holder or your broker did not send you the proxy

    Bank of America stockholders as of the close of business on March 11, 2015, will be entitled to vote at our annual meeting and any adjournments or postponements of the meeting.

    The settlement date of your purchase needed to be on or before march 11.
    first check with your broker or contact FINRA.

  • Apple: Here's Why The Stock Will Take Out $140 Before The End Of May [View article]
    scott trader

    I do not consider Apple an investment only a trade.
    The reason I do not consider it an investment for three reasons
    1] To many by the stock and their products using their heart over their head. Too many people need to have the next new gadget.
    2] Many of their products will reach saturation in the next couple of years.
    3] Look at it like the original TV. We went from black and white then to color and then strictly replacement for 20 years and the major manufactures got out of the business or went belly up.

    Seeing your doing DRIP you think the game has years to run, you maybe right just like Richard Saintvilus thinks it will go to 140 by the end of month. I got out and made a decent profit. I decided not to get back in because my gut said no. I hope it works out for you

    I did. As you will note my comment of may 4 below that I got out on Tuesday last week because of the rumors about the watch. The stock has fallen so badly. At a price below 124. I may get in just before 4pm closing just to pick the dividend today.

    Fun fun's best choice of a well run financial company (WFC), has been sued for fraud by the city of Los Angeles basically saying all the things he has claimed was done by BAC has also been done by WFC. He also forgot what the former parts of Wells Fargo Advisors were accused of.

  • BofA owners to get vote on CEO/Chairman bylaw change [View news story]
    Emerald

    Every show on TV is suppose to be entertaining. Fast money is discussion by professional traders so I like to see what they have to say. I consider myself a serious investor as my portfolios exceed 10 million. I also create a matrix to see how well some traders do. Here on SA you can sign up to get Cramer's views if you want. I try to get as many varied views of a security that I'm going to trade. You might want to read Delaware laws concerning a Chairman of the board and CEO combination.

    I got out last Tuesday and think 120 will be closer than 140 at the end of may. I keep hearing negatives on the watch. Since I retired I never wear a watch but It just seems over priced to me. if you are correct I left money on the table.

    I have 2000 shares of JPM I assumed will be assigned on 5/15. APC in the 80's would be a nice choice

    fun fun

    I guess you're the one who has the GED for many of your incorrect assumptions. But then again you never give any guidance of the future you just continually live in the past as to what happened years ago. You feel superior when you use "we" and "our" and tell us that great writers use plurals even when history show many writers like Hemmingway were mentally deficient in the end.
    You might like to know that a few financial shows (like fast money) think BAC is a great trade at the moment.

    As CEO he doesn't report to the chairman but the board. How does
    "Long-time individual retail investor, whose investment objective is capital appreciation and dividend income through equities" make such a simple mistake.

    Usually a k1 saves you a lot of taxes vs a 1099.
    Too many people leave money on the table but crib about taxes.
