come back to MIFI board everyone misses you.
eagerly awaiting your genius explanation why its up 40% since dow has dropped 5%, you always had something good when dow was up and MIFI down
time to buy back into KOSS? sales down a bit but company profitable again. i took a stab and invested some built up dividends. a small stake but puts KOSS back on the radar.
If they have been selling then they don't get the dividend and the money wont be there for buybacks which just increases management comp. I am all for the special dividend. Let's see if these guys have any talent.
NO WAY and you should do as the insiders are, SELLING LIKE IT'S 1999. Them rascals are making all you retail dummies bag holders.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
The featured idea for today's Special Situation Investing News has it all, a major selloff, an impending spinoff and activist investors. The company that I am talking about is Manitowoc $MTW.
Let's talk about the special situations in the order that I mentioned them. First, the selloff. Manitowoc's stock has underperformed the S&P 500 by nearly 43% over the past twelve months.
Ouch. As a value investor at heart, the more stocks sell off, the more I become interested.
The second special situation here is a spinoff. In January of this year, Manitowoc officially announced that it will spin off high-margin foodservice business as an independent company, leaving the more cyclical crane manufacturing business with the former parent.
Time to Buy Mantowac? Special Situation Investing News - 8/12/2015
am thinking of buying back into MTW. i last held and then closed out at a 29.33$ sell and so dodged a nearly 41% capital loss. however, am impressed with all the soda dispensers i see throughout the fast food industry with everyone from Wendy's to Noodles. they are all over and must be presenting MTW with a sorely needed shot in the arm. the split off between crane business and the food service businesses can only help. i also believe Icahn still has an 8% holding on outstanding MTW shares - always a good sign.
what is the latest scoop on the split off? any word on the date?
Who is selling the "food equipment" division? They are becoming their own corporation....
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I don't see any good news coming... peers: CAT and TEX are sliding, oil and construction industries are not spending. Selling "food equipment" division won't bring much. Income is same as when MTW was trading below 11$ with less debt than today... Pending a miracle turnaround - current 17$ price is a ceiling, not a bottom :(
