  • After Nokia's Q2 Earnings, Improving Revenue And A Flat Share Price Are Possible [View article]
    That will probably remain an issue, AH, as the french government, as has been frequently demonstrated, is jealous of its investment incomes (regardless of who's in power)!

  • Reuters: Vote on Moynihan's BofA chairmanship coming this year [View news story]
    There are other opportunities out there, HA, and in your position, I'd be inclined to divest some of my holding, if only because any stock that's already gone up four times, has less potential than a stock which is nearer rock bottom, all other things being equal. If you'd done so earlier, you could have made profit elsewhere, and still bought back in, and may well be able to do so in future, as I see no indication that BAC is going to take off any time soon; I mean, if the tapering off of the legal woes hasn't done it, what will it take?

    If starting from scratch, u1, but it looks like they already have products in mind, so it's worth a try?

    That may be so, gf, but who uses Craig's List? Not me.

    Thanks for the confirmation, vk; I expected that would be the case.

    Leaving less cash available for R&D or updating equipment, Aq? That's a strange way of "investing" (but at least it's better than spending it on executive bonuses...)!

    Aq, wouldn't buybacks at this time change the values of the agreement to acquire ALU? It's a dubious practice at any time, as the purpose, of reducing the number of shares outstanding, is achieved by spending money, and thus reducing the company's value, to more or less the same extent, so what, in reality, is achieved by it?

    There's a downside to local selling; less competition, which will probably mean higher prices. Some won't mind, but I'd opt for waiting a few days for delivery, if it gets me a significantly better price.

    That would be a better way of re-entering the handset market! Manufacturing is just too cut-throat...

    But wait; the author claims they ar now "lean and mean", so things will be different this time, and they can hope to succeed with new handsets, just like other such "lean and mean" companies, such as, umm, well, er, Blackberry?

    He wasted his time, then, as I was totally underwhelmed by his over the top innuendos. That Obama must be a bit of a twerp, if his army of advisors and protectors have failed to save him being fooled by all this photoshopping; if he doesn't know what's really going on, then I suppose we can all be forgiven for arbitrarily deciding what we want to believe, and accepting without question the opinions of anyone who agrees (even if links are notably absent). Consider yourself forgiven...

    For more photoshopped images, try googling "satellite arctic ice" (or similar) for dozens of regularly up-dated actual satellite images; man, there must be a whole army of photoshoppers, busy at work on this!

    Try NASA's site for instance, where you'll find such biasted lefty propaganda as:

    Current State of the Sea Ice Cover
    J. C. Comiso, C. L. Parkinson, T. Markus, D. J. Cavalieri and R. Gersten

    The sea ice cover is one of the key components of the climate system. It has been a focus of attention in recent years, largely because of a strong decrease in the Arctic sea ice cover and modeling results that indicate that global warming could be amplified in the region by a factor of about 3 to 5 times on account of ice-albedo feedback. This results from the high reflectivity (albedo) of the sea ice compared to ice-free waters. A satellite-based data record starting in late 1978 shows that indeed rapid changes have been occurring in the Arctic, where the perennial ice cover has been declining at the rate of about 13% per decade and the ice cover as a whole has been declining at the lesser rate of about 5% per decade. In the Antarctic, the trend is opposite to that in the Arctic, with the sea ice cover increasing at about 1 to 2 % per decade. This is despite unusual warming in the Antarctic Peninsula region and declines in the sea ice cover in the Amundsen/Bellingshausen Seas of about 6% per decade. In the Arctic, a slight recovery in the sea ice cover has been observed in 2008 and 2009, following a major decline of the ice in 2007, while in the Antarctic, the sea ice cover was more extensive than normal in 2007, 2008, and 2009. Shown below are up-to-date satellite observations of the sea ice covers of both the Arctic and the Antarctic, along with comparisons with the historical satellite record of more than 30 years. The plots and color coded maps are chosen to provide information about the current state of the sea ice cover and how the most current daily data available compare with the record lows and record highs for the same date during the satellite era.

    Well that's five minutes of my life lost! So you have video if a sarcy newscaster of obvious right wing leanings, interviewing a guy I'd never heard of, but who admits it's all to complicated for him? So tell me, why would anyone go to the trouble of photoshopping so many photos? That's an awful lot of work which could be instantly disproven by any other visitors to those glaciers, who happened to have a camera with them? How come these disproofs aren't all over the web yet?

    Yes, sure, C, double your broker's fee in order to pay more for the second batch; great idea!
