I'm assuming that if your stock price is high and demand is unrelenting you can just keep creating new stocks and eat up money from investors.
Investors don't like new stock. It dilutes their control in the organization. Control is the name of the game in Equity.

#2 their debt is insane, even for a "diverse field" company. They cannot even afford to service the debt maintenance let alone make an actual dent in the debt itself. - Internet Stranger

Get outta here...

Are you saying that you can't just print out money with nothing to back it?
Working out great for the US

This was a joke...I feel like I needed to point that out becasue there's a lot of butt hurt on OCN these days.

The butthurt in 2019 and 2020 is going to be INSANE. Most people just haven't realized it yet.

They probably watched coreteks youtube channel that predicts we wont have any dedicated GPUs in 10 years.

The fact a financial institution has debt means absolutely nothing excepting for the fact that they're doing leveraged trading, which every financial institution does.

Billions of dollars can change hands on wallstreet then change again all on debt instruments on a daily basis. Even more interesting is how many trades take place without actual money changing hands at all. See traders on wallstreet can actually buy stock and then hold off paying for that stock for 3 days. Of course sometimes the expected turn around sale doesn't happen and the financial institution will then pay for the stock which they're holding on to past 3 days with debt still intending to sell it for a profit shortly.

I'd be more concerned about a large player like softbank not having debt at all.
You are talking about people who don't understand to not comment, but you are not taking your own advice apparently.

First off, softbank stated that they want to reduce the dept, it wasn't a comment. It was a fact based on the what they said.

Secondly, being in dept or not being in dept, do have certain implications. They have many bonds they need to cache out, which is part of that debt, and that is money that they need to repay to someone, else it could potentially cost more along the way.
They also plan to divert money to a fund, so then need liquid money, and instead of borrowing more money, they decided to sell stocks and reduce fundings in order to have that available money (on paper, not on paper, doesn't matter).
They also made a lot of money in 2018, and will be expected to top that in 2019. Part of that is also, reduce debt.

This is not a 3 days debt. That is debt that has been accumulating in the last 2 years. I have no idea where you pooped that assessment, but clearly you did not go over reports of their finances before you commented, hence, again, should take your own advice sometimes.
