Saw where BB (Blockbuster) may be delisted from the NYSE.
tried a reverse split and the holders didn't go for it...
I assume they're being killed by RedBox and Netflix.
Company didn't keep their eyes open, and many years ago was arrogant as hell. I quit going about 15 years ago over a dispute for a late fee... they got my $5 but it was the LAST they'd ever see ! Stupid people wouldn't be reasonable... dumb fokkers !
Bye, bye BB and good riddance !
That's one of the reasons we have netflix today - the guy who created netflix got pi$$ed off by one too many large late fees from BB. Came up with the netflix model and the rest is history.

With BPs current PR disaster - I'm SURE that'll take a lot of convincing !!
Yeah well at the moment there's about three Mac users who think it would be a good idea and they haven't got a single share between them. No, I mean the BP brand remains strong because most people understand it was Transocean's rig and the company's commitment to the small people has been second to none.
Yes it was Transocean's rig, nobody is denying that - however BP leased the rig and was the sole driver of it. Under their lease agreement BP was in full charge of the rig and its safe operations, hence the reason why BP was able to over ride TransOceans safety procedures.
If you rented a car from Hertz, and you were careless driving it, you would blame Hertz wouldn't you.
Interesting. BP can do no wrong. Everybody is out to get BP. BP has no authority to say how their operation is run. They just hand over the cash to drill their well with no authority, no accountability, no oversight, no control of operations, nothing at all to do with anything associated with drilling their well. They were operating as a deaf, dumb and blind trust? You are posing that you truly understand how the oil industry conducts business. Your posts defending a company that has already taken responsibility to the tune of U$20 Billion (so far) are about the only humorous aspect of this crisis.
I'm not saying that - I was just correcting a few of his misconceptions.
Everybody is out to get BP.
Not over here they're not - most of us are reserving judgment. In particular we need to know more about the contractual terms between BP, Transocean and Halliburton and we need to hear BP's account of what went wrong.

That was under a politically motivated threat of retrospective legislation, of course, but was made without admission of liability as a gesture if goodwill towards those affected.
