  • Halliburton: Slowly Moving Merger Still Provides A Huge Catalyst [View article]
    Looking back at the amount of deals that have been stopped just this year by the current DOJ makes you wonder if this will be another feather in their cap. The deal between Applied Materials and Tokyo Electron went two years before being snuffed out by this DOJ.

  • Airline stocks fall; DOJ probing price collusion [View news story]
    @smadadet

    Do you work for the DOJ. Like them you are making accusations without any basis for those accusations. Maybe you would care to elaborate.

    Not sure where to begin with your statement. Your knowledge of the industry is obviously very limited.

  • DOJ Causes Temporary Turbulence For American Airlines [View article]
    @Biker

    I agree that the DOJ has their work cut out for them. The last time I recall this happening is when Bob Crandall told Braniff CEO Putman to raise his prices today and American would raise theirs tomorrow. Of course Crandall had know idea he was being taped. So unless the DOJ has some hard evidence it will be tough to prove. The problem is of course they have unlimited funds to keep this going as long as they care to.

    @MLP

    Would you like to explain to us how the airlines are subsidized by the government? If American charges $300.00 to fly from LA to NY and the cost is $500.00 does the government make up the $200.00 loss? This is what is going on with the foreign airlines that the domestics are now trying to have investigated. Instead the DOJ has decided to attack the U.S. carriers.

    Sorry, I should have been more specific. I was referring to the statement that the working class are not the ones who fly the most. I just disagree with that statement. I would say that most of the people in coach are the working class. Coach is the majority of the aircraft. This is not to say that those in first class don't work. I think that most of those who fly work. I wasn't trying to be a smart ass.

    I certainly would not doubt that some had previous warning. That said, with the computer system trading of today any news about the airlines being investigated would send an instant sell signal.

    @Mike
    You are absolutely right. The prices of airline tickets before De-regulation were much higher. Now lets remember that the airline industry was regulated by the government before 1978. De-regulation lowered fares dramatically. Obviously to much. Which is why all of the legacy carriers went bankrupt. If the government would stick to doing its job, which is to monitor the industry for safety issues through the FAA, the airline industry will be just fine.

    I beg to differ. When was the last time you flew?

    @MLPThey already tried that. Do you not remember 1978 de-regulation. We now have less carriers flying then before de-regulation. Why? Because it didn't work. Airlines priced themselves into bankruptcy. The idea that the DOJ should determine ticket prices because the price of fuel has gone down is absurd. U.S. airlines are not trying to keep out competition from foreign airlines. They just don't want to compete with carriers that are being subsidized by their governments. This would be a legitamate item for the DOJ to investigate. Instead they go after the airlines because for the first time in history they are making a profit.

  • American Airlines: A Leader In High-Growth Markets [View article]
    It is absurd to just throw out the fact that they are investigating without giving any information on which airlines and exactly what they are investigating. This is the type of announcement that should not be released until all information is available to the public. Very amateur move on the part of the DOJ.

    This DOJ is the worst in history. They go after whoever they want to and disregard whoever they please. U.S. airlines are easy game, but forget about looking into the foreign carriers receiving government subsidies.

    Leave it to the illustrious DOJ to throw a wrench in the works.

  • Oklahoma drilling regulator calls recent spike in quakes a "game changer" [View news story]
    @smr1954

    I agree with you. I do not know if drilling or fracking is causing these quakes. I believe the debate is on going.
