I meant Eddie not Frank.........too type happy. But folks have to call the company to voice their discontent. I am sorry - Bush is gone so attacking countries on your own with no game plan ain't in the cards right now (again even FOX destroyed Cheney as he tried to remake history) so management has to reinvent themselves and not wait wait for duh guberments free ride. case closed. Boolean
Boolean? Enough! I defended you yesterday. I further made your point. We all get it now. Management doesn't read the board, and if they did, they wouldn't care what you were saying. Your point is clear to all of us. If management truly believed in itself, or the future of the company, they'd be buying shares. They're not buying, so that tells us all we need to know!
Frank? Frank hasn't been with the company for years. That kind of #$%$ is part of what makes you look so bad. So find a new rant and move on from this one. Sleep easy knowing you educated the unknowledgeable shareholder regarding insider buying.
self serving folk - remember who you are here to serve - SHAREHOLDERS. You should be buying shares by now and that is clear. Insiders are buying at one of the fastest paces in a long time and that is at the so-called top of the bull market -- it ain't no top as America is leading the world into the next boom phase and this market has a lot more to go but alas.........our insiders who choose to sell their shares and to reap the reward of options for doing...well........NOTHING and NEVER BUY ON THE OPEN MARKET. They allow the stock to sag and then they have the audacity to praise their ways in the annual report and tell everyone else to BUY SHARES so why for..........so they can sell some options at higher prices I do believe. We shareholders are being served grits on a platter from the top of a coffee can and it can not stand. We need a strong investor group to come forth and rip these fools off their perch and replace them with a shareholder centric team. Some of you like to be spit on but I don't -- some people are immoveable, some are moveable and some MOVE..........I move and you should to so we can remove this board and management. Boolean
good point because this company looks like a dead dog. Shareholders have not made a dime in years and actually lost money when management unloaded their shares all on the same day over 2 years ago and the stock price has not climbed back ti that level.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
All due respect to mountainr23, and as crazy as Boolean is sometimes, he happens to be right on the money here! Your 21% insider ownership number is quite deceiving. It includes a 10+% institutional holder who is considered an insider simply because of the size of the holding. They are NOT insiders at all. The real "insider" number (board and management) is probably under 10%.
To Boolean's point, over the last year we have seen two directors sell (Bazaar and McSweeney), and the former CEO apparently liquidate his holdings, and he doesn't show up anymore. Add to that the fact that the CFO owns approximately 13,000 shares, and the CEO only 7,000 shares, and you begin to see his message. What Boolean is looking for is a show of confidence from management that THEY believe in the future of the company that THEY are running. Mr. Fred had almost 200,000 shares that he owned, and while it is true that many of those shares were obtained through options, the taxes he had to pay, and continue to hold the shares meant he was pretty well invested in the company's future. And I think that's all Boolean is trying to bring to light, though he has a very strange way of doing it.
Ask yourself, as an individual shareholder, not an institution, should you own more shares of a company than its CEO and CFO combined? I agree with Boolean here (and I very seldom do), management should be showing us their confidence by putting their money where their mouths are. And I don't mean buying 1,000 shares each. They should step up to the plate and buy 10,000 shares each. Yes, put $100,000 in play so we know you actually believe your own propaganda. The chairman is loaded, so why doesn't he personally buy a few hundred thousand dollars worth and prove his confidence too?
I'm sorry, but if they can't do that, then Boolean is 100% right, and none of us should be trusting them. Without skin in the game, it's easy to say things are looking great!
You are wrong because over 21% of this company is already owned by insiders. This company is no different than most public companies. Officers and directors are given options to buy shares at the market price on the day they are granted. If the stock does not appreciate, the officers and directors get no benefit. Their financial interest is making the stock appreciate and that is the only way they can profit from the stock options. Calling them and telling them to buy CPI stock is like me telling you to buy General Motors or any other stock. The true catalyst for this stock will be to obtain orders, produce the work (which they are great at) and collect the receivables for the work performed.
why do you say I am wrong mountain - come down from the mountain and see if you see it the same way ok. insiders are buying in big time again for the next big run and yet our insiders remain in hiding waiting for more freebie options and selling their shares........tell me I am wrong with what is happening here and around the market. Boolean
It is quite apparent that you are wrong and by repeating the same dribble many times over makes you sound like you never got past lower grade school. Nick is right. You sound like an idiot.
well you know from my buy point I am up huge and hey it is a penny play so volatility will be huge and I told you all the risk involved BUT the story is not told yet my little man - they are just rolling out their new games and device and the trial at Buffalo Wild Wings went very well and now with the football season here we will really see how it goes.........so don't be so childish ok.....grow up and do some due diligence so you know what you are talking about and what you know and don't know. OK...Good. Boolean
So news out shows insiders are scooping up a lot of shares for the year end rally I have told u is coming - yes we will hit 2100 on the S&P by years end BUT OUR INSIDERS ARE NO WHERE TO BE FOUND.....once again showing their lack of confidence on their ability to drive this company forward without DUH GUBERMENT'S FREE BUSINESS -- hey let's have more wars so we don't have to think how to build this company. WE NEED A REBELLION and a big group to come in here and sweep away the board and management. HAVE YOU CALLED THE COMPANY YET or do you just there? You all know I am right again. Boolean
I really do not see this Mcrossan fellow as CEO much longer. He does not have the appropriate background, succesful track record or education for such a position. Now we be the idle time to clean house as this management farce is not bringing the bacon to the table. Do it now so they can start with skilled people to build new customer relations and people that can give a new message at investor conferences. The old boring, same old story is not selling. Sorry bu that is just the way it is.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
did u call the company yet and vent your frustration with them.........any one else out there call.......if so I will stop - what is "grating" is management's failure to ACT........to manipulate and to live on options. The free work form duh guberment wherein management has to do nothing is the way this company is managed. Then keep selling shares under the guise of automatic sales......diversification......crappola OK. WE NEED A BIG PLAYER TO HELP US REVOLT and boot them out and SELL THE COMPANY. Boolean
You've made a number of VG points
But once made the continual repetition becomes grating.
Please stop until you find/develop new material.
call the company and see if you get brazen attitudes like I did when I called - totally unresponsive to what it going on - we need the power money to ride in and help shareholders remove this board and management...........Tonto - go get the posse. Boolean
but they will take the free shares for doing what????? Taking the easy guberment jobs and then taking options for success that is driven by the guberment and not by what they are doing? then when the pot of money is pulled back management has no answers except to say issue an annual report touting their greatness and that of the company?? You have to SELL THE COMPANY NOW if you continue to manage the company this way. We need a shareholder revolt - a big money house to come in and rip you out of your golden palace and make you understand that you..........have..........failed. Boolean
they get it..........they have to get it. This week they will follow many insiders and buy shares in the company they run. They told you in the annual just how great they were doing and who great it was to be a shareholder......you do see that word SHARE right? Boolean
you need to step up and BUY on the open market OK. You know my posts I am sure and you know I tell the truth and have a keen awareness of what is happening.......I am not a lemming. I am an independent. I am telling you to BUY SHARES ON THE OPEN MARKET - you know I am right.........the stock has been a laggard in the face of a massive market run. Or - you need to SELL THE COMPANY which is the preferred method of maximizing shareholder value here. OK - buy a FOR SALE SIGN and put it up. Thank you. Boolean
