  • Allied Nevada receives $7.50/share takeover offer, shares +27% premarket [View news story]

    ETF Holdings of ANV and how do they vote?

    I found this website that shows the total holdings for all ETF's of any stock. Very interesting! Does anyone know how an ETF votes their stock? Are they excluded from voting? Interesting ethical question. Here are the details and the site. (Enter the US version for ANV, leave your cursor in the entry box and push the actual "enter" key to activate. Won't work with just the mouse). Great for looking at all your holdings. Number of ETFs Holding ANV: 21 Total Market Value Held by ETFs: $50,479,991 Total Market Capitalization: $419,000,000 % of Market Cap. Held by ETFs: 12.05%

  • IBI Group: Cheap Debt That's Covered By Current Assets [View article]
    What a mess! I looked at all the points you have raised. I also spoke with management and unless the have a secret admirer they have suggested that even with the current improvements they felt that the only way to get this done is to offer an extension on the IBG.Db. I doubt this will fly. Also on a tactical note be very careful with corporations with convertible debt as you can short the stock against the debentures ( or use options). This often results in a nasty decline that is very hard to turn around.

  • Telef√≥nica SA: Corporate Doublespeak [View article]
    All of the research points to the fact that share buy-back do not work. Period! If a corporation doesn't know how to invest their money profitably then we have a problem. Much better to reduce debt instead..Especially if things are looking difficult for the next while. Haven't these CEO's read the material clearly proving repurchases don't work?
