  • Bloomberg: Costco to pay near zero in new credit card deal [View news story]
    Does this mean that Costco will be accepting all Visa cards and that Costco will have a partnership with Citi/Visa that gives a better incentive? Or that the only Visa credit card accepted for Costco will be the one through Citi?

  • AmEx and Costco ending U.S. partnership next year [View news story]
    Maybe I am an outlier. I will continue to use my Amex (Blue Cash Preferred) for the grocery (6%) and gas/dept store (3%). My only other purchases were for Costco but that was only 1% anyways. 1% is better than nothing but in the grand scheme of things, still plan on shopping at Costco because even without that 1% return it is still better pricing than other stores and I will still use my Amex because the grocery % is tremendous and 3% back on gas year round is a huge plus.
    **Need to remember that right now I am purchasing only for me and my wife (not a small business or a large family).
    To sum it up. Costco will do well no matter who they partner with for credit cards (if they even go that route - not sure what deal they had in place with Amex). Amex will take a hit but do think the current trading is a little bit of an overreaction.

    Curious to see how many purchases are made using Amex cards versus using V/MA cards.

  • DirecTV reaches Sunday Ticket deal, removes AT&T deal hurdle [View news story]
    Will Sunday Ticket be available to U-Verse subscribers? It could prove beneficial if they bundled ST for U-verse rather than keeping it solely for DirectTV users.

  • Anthera Pharmaceuticals Announces Update on Strategic Partnership Discussions for Blisibimod [View article]
    Does this mean, they are working to sell the drug to another Company outside of the US or that they are trying to find someone to work with to provide more trials on people outside of the US?

  • North Dakota's new shale problem: radioactive waste [View news story]
    Either way, the EPA will put more pressure on the North Dakota shales and these companies that rely fairly heavily on ND will need a solution to keep the hippies at bay.

  • North Dakota's new shale problem: radioactive waste [View news story]
    Doesn't Abtech (OTCQB:ABHD) have a product that can handle the radioactive element of the waste that is being produced?

  • Corporate Governance And Economic Conditions Make Jos. A. Bank A Short [View article]
    Would the author mind addressing the recent news with JOSB? Just curious as to why BeaconLight Capital feels the stock could move to $70 based on certain changes. Do you think these changes will have a meaningful impact?

  • Amarin (AMRN) announces a 21.7M share ADS offering, with a 30-day option to purchase an additional 3.255M ADSs. Citigroup and Jefferies are acting as joint book-runners. Shares -6.5% AH. [View news story]
    You mean should have sold the company when the stock was around $20. Not sure how serious any suitors were at that point but would have paid off much better than driving the stock to $5.

    So let me guess, AMRN is having trouble paying the bills for launching Vascepa?

  • Amarin (AMRN -7.8%) comes under pressure after the FDA's update to its Orange Book gives it's fish oil pill Vascepa "no unexpired exclusivity," though no NCE decision was made. [View news story]
    Can't we all agree that the true determinant for the stock is the sales figures for Vascepa. If big pharma hasn't bought AMRN yet, I think they have moved on from NCE status. Companies just want to see how well the product sells.
