I have heard that their phones sales are well below forecast.


It makes sense. They are way overpriced. I used to upgrade every year or so. Now I wait until it's shot.

Agreed.

 

I am getting some dough ready to put back into the market as I think we will have some good buy opportunities and this is short term.

Soros dumps Facebook, Netflix stocks just before they dipped: report

Billionaire George Soros’ investment management firm has saved millions after completely selling off its shares of Facebook and slashing its stakes in Netflix and Goldman Sachs just before the stocks nosedived, a report said Wednesday.

Soros Management Fund saved $17.7 million in the fourth quarter by dumping the three stocks, Barron’s reported.

Your $12 in tips from working at the carwash probably wouldn't net you much in the market, even if it was up all year. :dunno:

Without going into detail, I work for a large corporation that's closely tied to the housing market. We had a significant layoff a few days back, and the company is forecasting a very rough 2019. Hang on tight!

I'm a software engineer, so the business side is mostly foreign to me. From what little I have gathered... a combination of rising interest rates, short supply, new building slowdown and and the already high cost of housing is setting up for an economic downturn. :dunno:

If you provide materials and are sitting on a ton of inventory, then my understanding is that you would be in trouble since prices for wood have fallen through the floor.

The companies that supply building materials are a very good indicator of what is to come. They are one of the first to suffer and one of the first to recover.

Just sold my 75 shares of CRON... bought them at 8.11 ($616.86) & sold @ 13.26 $985.23

I only had bought $600 worth a month or so ago.. wish I would have put at least a couple grand in.

It had jumped like +25% a share at opening today... wtf..

I think Marlboro put 2 billion into the market. Dunno about them exactly, but makes sense.

Shares of Cronos Group Inc. (CRON) lit up Friday after the company announced that Altria Group Inc. (MO - Get Report) , the maker of Marlboro cigarettes, made a $1.8 billion (C$2.4 billion) investment in the Canadian cannabis company in exchange for a 45% stake.

Altria also has options that if fully exercised would result in an additional $1.05 billion (C$1.4 billion) in proceeds for Cronos in exchange for an extra 10% stake for Altria.
