How did it go down? Are we on our way to a made up adjusted EBITDA of 35%? Will SPG return? Will Bengie96 be let go and join the bashers in the next reallocate to accelerate restructure?
My responses are to ex-employees who are bashing their former employers. Someone has to stand up for the company. The reason I do not add content is because I am a very low level worker who doesn't have any. But, if you guys keep up with the negative ramblings continually then I will keep coming back. You didn't add any value when you were working at Monster, why keep commenting now?
The business is trying to turn a corner and the sentiment is improving both internally and externally.
Put your energy to good use and just let it go...
ps. How do you know I am a "he"?
That's all they have. Bengie has been using that "Let It Go" song from that cartoon for about a year now. I guess he thinks that is a good put down. He needs to write some new material. Just do what I do, when he responds just flag it for violating community guidelines and they will delete it. IF you look at all his past posts he has nothing of any substance. Hopefully he has been watching the Disney channel and found a new cartoon that he can use to put you down.
Well, I have been following this board for a few months. YOU HAVE YET TO POST ANY INFORMATION OF ANY VALUE. If you work for the company, why don't you post some positive FACTS. All the bashers on this board at least have documented facts. I guess these people are correct, the company is a train wreck because the current employees are train wrecks.
Are you MR Robot? Hacking my PC to see what I do all day? Or are you a sad little person who got bumped from the company for being completely inept and just cannot let it go?
Let it go, let it go... you hum it and I'll sing it...
All together now...
If you are annoyed now you are going to be ballistic when SPG returns and the stock tanks over the next few months with the break to take program kicks in to high gear.
but there are only like 5 people in this chat...at least 4 seem to be confirmed as disgruntled ex employees...so clearly not too many monster folk hanging here...this is why shareholders like me get annoyed...
Again the problem - if you people spent the time working for the company and not reading my posts maybe the company would be saved by now. That's the sad part you are the problem yet you think I am. I didn't tank the company and I didn't sit by - you did!
You must be one of the few, the bored, the waiting to get their severance like the 3,000 other people at the company not really doing anything but reading this board.
Now they are saying the best of the job growth and market is behind us. If Monster couldn't make any money or get any growth during the long, long, long recovery how does it expect to grow now that the market is going to go down?
I think SPG will be back soon maybe even before the end of the year!
How would you spend the money - super bowl ad or something else.
I was just pointing out that they spend $35M and I have no idea on what because I only see and hear ads for other companies including zip recruiter and even indeed on bloomberg radio. I can't recall the last time I saw a Monster ad unless it's a paid search? Surely they reallocated to accelerate some of the marketing spend for the new products but I've heard, read, or scene nothing on the new products as far as marketing?
They spend $35M a quarter - $140M a year - that's not enough? They claim they are getting more efficient every quarter with the spend yet UV's, page views, and revenue continue to decline.
The CMO quit last year - do you really think spending $40M on a marketing spend would make a difference?
So what do you think they will do?
0 - nothing (best option)
1 - pay off debt or about 1/3rd of it since it's $209M
2 - buy something
3 - buy stock
I think doing nothing is the best option since it prevents the convert nonsense - they can pay for it if it happens or at least their portion that isn't part of the hedge with bank of america.
I'm pretty sure they'll do 4 which might be the run up of the stock but that just hasn't been a good choice for them in the past and leaves them vulnerable to the convert. Tim has also stated that he thinks this is the best option. At a minimum I would expect them to spend half of it on $40M on a buyback. Which like a hangover they will regret later but don't argue with the largest gifted shareholders.
What do you think?
November will be a game changer, Yes, it is up 15% over the 5 day chart, but i just recovered from the losses from the September 17 drop. The anticipation is for the earnings from the third quarter. They did the huge product launch second quarter last year. So all the new technology has been out there for a year. Because it is on a subscription basis, we should be able to tell if clients are happy, or did not find the ROI by the renewals and cancellations. If the renewals look solid, they the revenues should follow. But, if the products are not as well received, the revs will dip and we will see sub 5 by the end of the year.
