    Third Quarter 2014 Results

    by maturadoratum Nov 5, 2014 8:27 AM

    Yes I'm curious about the strategic move too. Last year they filed a SEC form to keep something secret and the SEC granted them it ok to keep secret. Now they mention it again. Many times when a company gets acquired they are allowed to keep all negotiations secret until final agreement. It might just be pricing or something simple too. I also own lots of shares or at least lots of shares to me!! The reason to own it is because of the business potential and also current profits. I think everyone is waiting for the Ca sales tax audit to show they don't owe any additional taxes. If they clear that up we could see $5 fast, if they owe $5-10M or something it could go down to $2. Now with the unknown the market is pricing in the risk. The current business without the sales tax isssue is worth way more than $2.75. I heard somebody on here say many years ago they turned down an offer for $7, not sure if that's true but business is better now than it was then. Jack is retired so they might take a deal now, who knows. Its hard to see it valued so low. Time and contiued good results will make it go up. Have a nice day.

  • Hey there!

    Had been around here a long time ago (2010-2011) and I am missing the valuable comments from snds!

    I sold my entire position in 2011 and after dropping to nearly $1 in early 2013 I started to accumulate again in mid 2013, now sitting on a rather big position again. And I will not sell a single share at these rediculously cheap levels...

    Third quarter results were disappointing on a first glance, but seem really strong in light of a the much higher tax rate. The 9 cents translate into an annual earnings run rate of 36 cents a share - so, what is the reason this stock trades below $3??!!

    Anyone listened to the call? A replay is available on

    There were two negatives from the call:

    First, there will be no more carbon offset revenue realized in 2014, and, second, no one seems interested in the company right now as there was not a single question at the end of the presentation.

    And here are (some of) the positive things:

    The company expects carbon offset revenues of $0.5-0.6 million in 2015. Replacement program with large california utility expected to be out of funds by the end of August was extended to the end of 2014 with a $4 million budget! Several new programs started recently and the company opened two new recycling centers. They expect positive future impacts on its retail business, because of a stronger housing market and struggling competitors! They have implemented many cost reduction inititaives to save the company several hundredthousand dollars in the coming quarters. The low oil price will benefit the whole recycling business as transportation of old appliances becomes cheaper. Currently, they work on a strategic move which they did not disclose in detail due to competitive reasons (acquisition brewing?).

    Maybe I forgot some more interesting details, probably need to listen a second time!

  • Now we know who screwed up the sales tax issue

  • It may be a good quarter for the company !!!

  • So, here we are again, following YET ANOTHER long extended downswing in prices and...BAM! Up 4.4%. But look at the date? See it? Yup. Last trade date for the end of month (Oct) Short Interest Report period. They had to do a bit of cover buying with the price being no object to hide the true number of short sales to force prices lower.
    Are there still doubters of this stock being manipulated?


    Sentiment: Buy

  • If this company gets any kind of contract with a large company than ARCI stock will go up a significant amount. This is because lots of investors will see the the contract in the news feed of the large company, and then they will see ARCI stock. I saw this happen with plug power (PLUG), the company got a contract with Walmart, Tesla, and Fed ex. The price of PLUG went from .50 cents a share to 10 dollars at it's high. I think that ARCI has the potential to the same for a few reasons. Firstly, both PLUG and ARCI are in the business of helping the environment. With that said, most major companies would work with PLUG and ARCI to show that they are "green companies that care about the environment". So far ARCI to rise rapidly all it would have to do is get a few small contracts with large companies. These contracts could be as simple as "ARCI sells 15 break room refrigerators to walmart". If anyone knows the CEO of ARCI or anyone on the board of directors please tell them my suggestion. I truly believe this company's stock price could triple if they get a few contracts.
