The great thing about being an analyst is being able to cover your own ass by just up or down grading a stock.

Being great is actually working on that future.

The cracks started to show early on I'd say, but I think it was acceptable to give her the benefit of the doubt because change indeed does take time.

At this point though? She's done for. So many failed acquisitions and bottom shelf morale that has talent leaving the company in droves.

Not only is she in over her head, the core yahoo assets just can't compete meaningfully against the other tech behemoths.

It's a really interesting thing in business. You pretty much have to be batshit crazy and believe in an idea.

For all she did at Google, she never created a company (well besides hiring people to edit her Wiki page).

For batshit crazy, see Theranos and Elizabeth Holmes.  Great idea but the execution seems to be the issue.

Also helps that she's not bad looking. Just like GF, would hit.

Have you seen any of her interviews? She has a voice huskier and deeper than any woman's I've ever heard of. Not that that ally matters, but it's creepy af.

There's batshit crazy and there's delusional/fraud. Sometimes it's hard to distinguish the two at early stages.

You might mistaken the role of different parties: sell-side analyst's job is to generate trades, buy-side analysts job is to generate ideas on returns, corporate executives job is to enhance shareholder interests.

Sometimes sell-side guys become corporate executives and some Corp exec move to buy-side.

p.s., sometimes Corp exec mistaken their self interest for shareholder interest...

I don't think I'm mistaken. My point was analysts sit at a desk and can say one thing and then do another.

I also absolutely always hate the idea of running a business for 'shareholder interests'. If you're not running a company to create great products, you shouldn't be running the company. Money is secondary and will come along for the ride.

I never liked a company that was just there and not innovating every single waking hour.

I managed to swap the entirety of my COP for RDSA in one act yesterday, woke up to see that COP had slashed their dividend today. Still have plenty of COP, but I am glad I took measures to reduce it drastically yesterday.

Overall it's a smart move for them, or at least a move they could not prevent, but will improve their situation in the near term.

Anyone know what's causing FCX to jump so much lately?

Have been considering adding a small position as a speculative play since it was in the 3s and I unfortunately missed dat train.

I can't stress how good of a buy ATVI is right now. I'd snag it before the upcoming earnings it's either the 11th or 22nd. Market was receptive to take twos shitty earnings and ATVI will beat them too
