i think it is valuable to the consumer, or at least i personally find it valuable but i'm not really sure on how much revenue growth it can deliver. Is it going to be in every cell phone and if so, how can you get revenue growth out of that?
The CEO owns a big % of the company so he has some incentive to deliver to the shareholders. I do know that he got paid a very large salary last year, so that could be another reason the CEO is disliked so much. Putting all that aside, I think the company is generating good cash flow which makes the stock look cheap based on the current price. It would be nice to know if other radio broadcasting companies are talking about next radio because if it is going to be successful, all the broadcasters will be benefiting. Anyone ever hear
another company mention it? I had always thought EMMS would benefit the most from it because they cleaned up their balance sheet and got rid of a lot of debt that was owed. With good future cash flows i would think they could pay down more debt and then possible pay a dividend or buy back stock all of which would increase shareholder value in the future. I believe you have to look at the industry as a whole and if you think radio broadcasting industry is an attractive investment, EMMS should be in a good position to capitalize on that. Historically, the industry has been out of favor with investors so you can't really blame the poor stock activity all on the greedy CEO.
Well... I guess I couldn't contain my frustration. Yes, three version to prevent yahoo censorship but I see they don't censor the word masturbate. Considering the bonuses paid "for strong operating performance" yet nothing comes our way you are correct. CEO is no idiot.
He, his company and the industry may be treading water but I do not think that is the real issue. In my view, the issue here is he talks sweet while he doesn't give a dam for creating shareholder value. NextRadio will never deliver the strong profits he envisions some day into the future.
He simply does not want to deal with shareholders. Thus, the staged conference calls where everything is bright. In other words, he is telling you to #$%$ off.
You used three different versions of the word 'masturbate' in this post and managed to misspell each of them. That, along with your use of the word 'idiot,' is my biggest disagreement with you. He isn't an idiot, but he does seem to be treading water. I think terrestrial radio is in much the same situation as newspapers, frankly. I know from his previous posts that Longtime keeps an eye on the radio biz -- or used to. Maybe he'll be along with his take.
This idiot ceo continues to mastirbate his ego in each and every call with his massively cutting edge performance while never delivering to his shareholders. Everybody is down except his marvelous emms that navigates gracefully through extremely challenging and tough times. Yet, the stock has cratered and stays down. No matter how much amount of ego masterbating he injects into his speech. Man up Smuylan and face your shareholders LIVE and stop trying to miracously transform the Universe with your johnny-come-late schemes! What an idiot.
The only thing he can show is a "research" showing how transformational this nextradio will one day be during this "landmark" quarter that has beaten all possible benchmarks.
Where are the higher revenues (flat ex-purchases) and the accelerating profits?
YOU ARE A FAKE.
There is simply NO buying. Shareholders take advantage of rallies to unload from the microcaps. That is why we see the indexes marching higher while the microcaps go nowhere or go lower. It's horrible.
there was a rotation out of small cap stocks and into more safer stocks like dividend paying stocks and large cap stocks. i thought that was a sign that a stock market correction could be coming as we've been in this current bull market for a couple years now without a 10% correction occurring. However, i think recently, the small caps have bounced back up, which i think is a sign of strength for the stock market. I've been listening to an investment guy on the radio every SAT at noon who has some good analysis on the stock market. The radio show is called empowered investing. You may find it interesting.
Funds for these microcaps disappeared on Feb/March RUT correction and never came back. RUT recovered fully but microcaps crashed and stayed down. I am not sure where the money flows were coming from or why they left or if it was all a QE gimmick. It's like liquidity for the microcaps is not there anymore. I read somewhere that the prospects of higher interest rates will negatively impact very small firms.
I thought that was all normal but i see your point. It would be more authentic if it were live. Maybe the stock would go higher if that would happen as it would be more shareholder friendly.
1. Shareholders get no respect with this type of attitude.
2. He gets to screen questions in advance as opposed to live screwing.
3. He can answer questions anyway that pleases him without having another investor rebuffing.
By now you should get the idea of how easy is a conference call without annoying LIVE analysts and/or investors.
And yes, I have emailed some questions including when will this modus operandi will change.
And yes, the other poster, he is afraid of enemies he made.
Hi, Rosen62 --
What are you afraid of Mr. Smulyan?
Preferred shareholders and their minions?
"After opening comments, Smulyan and Walsh will respond to questions submitted via email to..."
After many quarters of quasi improvements why does he need to pull this kind of #$%$!
What are you afraid of Mr. Smulyan?
Nothing on my brokerage accounts. Other 1q's were announced on July. Probably soon.
yahoo finance had the date of 6/26-6/27. i was wondering why there was no announcement. maybe that was just an estimate that yahoo finance had. Last year, they reported earnings on 6/27. Maybe that's why yahoo estimated the earnings release on that day this year.
