    I think this was just Awilco taking advantage of a huge opportunity to pick the rigs up cheap.

    $4/year and the stock price is $18.19 (yesterday's close); that means dividend payments are 22.0% per year.

    And yet it is still trading and is actually up over 5% today. That is a disgrace imo. Greater fool theory at work and the SEC allows it to go on. Once the decision is final, trading should be halted permanently.

    Those would be extremely lame lawsuits. A lot of people are deaf or nearly so, and so perhaps they need to be kept off the street for their own protection? Ridiculous...

    Live by the sword, die by the sword (in this case high speed algorithm generated electronic trades). I don't see why they are allowed to cancel these trades. TBTF I suppose...

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    I still maintain that it doesn't make sense and I believe that is what we are seeing. Japan imports almost all of their inputs except labor, so a weak yen may help exports but look at the deficit. No exports without imports of raw materials.

    And doesn't Japan import most of its food too?
    
    It looks like they will self-destruct.

    I was thinking Jamie may want to look into a personal real estate investment in the Cayman Islands.

  • Carl Icahn Spells The End Of An Era At Apple [View article]
    With 0.22% of the shares, he really doesn't have much leverage. Normal volume in Apple sees over $4 billion traded daily (even when the price was lower).

    So is $1 billion really a big deal? No, its just Icahn's name. He has had a good run lately.

    The author sold the calls and the buyer did not call his shares away to collect the dividend. In the case he described, the buyer will usually call the shares to collect the dividend prior to the option expiration date if he is going to finish in the money anyway.

    Perhaps the buyer didn't have the cash to buy the shares and the author got lucky in the buyer only wanted to sell the calls to someone else prior to expiration.

  • Freeport McMoRan says Indonesia export ban may cut copper output [View news story]
    We'll see how long the Indonesian government holds out when the revenue declines.

    Just as they reduced the shutdown they imposed this year, I expect they won't enforce this requirement as long as the intention to support the domestic plants is going forward. If there is no domestic capacity, they can't expect compliance without dropping the revenue they currently receive.
