This question can only be correctly answered in the future. But it has a 50% chance of being correctly guessed now

That really depends on what kind of investor you are.

Taxable or not?

4% of a large investment is different than 4% of a small one. In other words, is this a significant amount that would lead to a big tax hit?

Did you have a price target before you purchased the stock? I guess not since you're asking here...but I thought I'd ask anyway.

Sold some at $14 today (nice recovery from $13.06 low after ER, I added some at $13.4)

if you can talk him/her into being married 3.5 days a week, and single 3.5 days a week, and that's what you want, then more power to you!

My neighbour lives 2.5 hrs drive from his wife of 45 years. There's history there. Told me yesterday he spends alternate weekends with her and the children/grandchildren. Family dinner, etc. She sometimes stays with him. Says it works great. Who is to say?

If I only need to share half of my assets and assumes half of the liabilities should a divorce happen, then that's great

I must say at $10.58 per share (US) the price is good when you look at the size of the operation and we are coming up to summer (peak) season.

The downside is they have declared bankruptcy before, Trump could enact some random legislation that effects AC, airlines as a group have been poor investments.

If the White House makes the expected announcement on US EU flights tomorrow I can see the price shooting up fairly quickly.

Unless of course the potential of that announcement has already been factored in. If I could go back in time even a couple of years I'd be flying F for the rest of my life.
