DLHCis taking on giant task of helping healthcare delivery costs to come down. Can it really put a dent in the $7 trillion global costs?
al... Unless you buy shares "for immediate delivery" then you had to buy today, because "normal trading" requires three business days for settlement and delivery--Thursday, July 2; Monday, July 6; and Tuesday, July 7. The die is cast!!!
I don't expect Biglari to try to eliminate the "poison pill." at the August annual shareholders meeting.
Great contract with American Airlines. There is a big need for de-icing. Last winter was very cold on the East Coast. Ain't Global Warming great?
Do you realize that AIRT traded at a new 52-wk high of $28 today?
no, i have criticism of the company in that they have done a flat out #$%$ job of marketing what is supposedly breakthrough technology in de-icers. it is great to have the product but where has the discussion of it been before today? it is a nice contract given the size of the company certainly. there should have press releases and an obvious market presence at the air show in paris and on line. i would be curious to know how many miles a de-icer puts on a year. but they are CERTAINLY to be congratulated on a contract that is 70% the market cap of the company. maybe now they will roll this out globally and educate the market on the critical need (if so) for the technology. is it available in asia and europe? antarctica?
net... Regarding your comment about "green vehicles," I believe that the total hours of operation of a typical deicer vehicle is so limited on an annual basis, that cost savings from better fuel efficiency would not be material. It's not like over-the-road 18-wheelers that log eight or more hours per day.
kind of ironic, looks like they just dusted off the rights agreement that was used against swenson, now using it against bigliari. will be interesting to see how its viewed by other stockholders
Just looked at the pre proxy filed. Would seem , in addition to the recent news deicers/contracts, shareholders as of 7/7 voting. Given the proxy battle... Think we are going to see some more price action next 6 days. If looking for an exit, heads up! Jmo of course.
i think you are right. awful headline. the pr does say it is the 2200 model. it is interesting that the airlines are not yet looking at green vehicles. and sad that the US has become so dysfunctional that in 2015 they are not aggressively transitioning to new energy. PLUG is working on airport support vehicles using fuel cell and that is interesting, but slow progress in adoption.
net... I think you divided the approximate contract value by the model number. The "Global Ultimate 2200" is the product model. I guess the 2200 means that this unit is so modern, it will still be in use in the year 2200.
net... I like the way you got "ice" into your message headline.
Where do you get "14 grand?" These units must be much more than that. The savings in fluid during operation is where the return on investment comes from.
I did not know that this is the fourth major airline in North America to order this model. Who are the other three?
This is all good!!
i dont think the two companies have anything to do with each other than that both are nick swenson games. isig is bouncing along a 52 low which is artificially supported by insider buying. it is probably worth $2.25 a share until someone forces the management out. that is not close to happening.
not really. it trading in place. another poor performance or more sleazy behavior and the stock will return to $10 again.
so, that being said, who do you suppose is buying the stock and causing the uptick today???? obviously they have a far different take than you.
did you take the time to back out the quarter? i didnt. neither did swenson. golly i wonder why? once again the company is uninvestable. you tell me what you think. i think it looks like a part-time ceo who thought he knew what he was doing effed up the business but good. de-icers? a joke business. look at the backlog crash. and everything else looks a mess. so they pumped up profits by selling #$%$ets. lovely. did they diversify since nick the activist arrived? and new clients? what did they do to make this an investment? the market sold it off to recent lows on this. so dont break out the quarter to hide the numbers and dont have a conference call to explain your self, activist my #$%$.
