==wrong on todays race, it was declared a rain out red flagg day as not a single contestant managed to get across the finish other than drco==
NOPE! Once the racing season begins, no ex-post-facto rule changes are permitted. Show at little integrity, will ya! (snicker)
Sentiment: Strong Sell
==You need to call your broker and say that you have declared a RED FLAG DAY, and have them change your account balance back to yesterday's for a do over==
You should call YOUR Broker and demand that all your KRAR-py trades be reversed due to a Red Flag Investment. In this way, your massive KRAP-tos LOSS would disappear. Let us know who that works out, OK? (chuckle)
Sentiment: Strong Sell
bidnow73, another Steward just validated track procedure decision has now been declared final RED FLAGG DAY se all at track start in early morning Pics.
Eb twister, wrong on todays race, it was declared a rain out red flagg day as not a single contestant managed to get across the finish other than drco
Bidnow73, Thanks for this revue and what you state makes sense so really now we see how SMART KTOS MGMT is . Your words and sentences sums up a prior problem and a new Solution put in place to now move forward, just follow DirectionsVery concise but this way no confusion just favorable resultswill follow and being patient to allow it to actually happen . Just a note from picsantee, Pics.
Sorry EDM - You still don't understand the rules. Nine of the ten participants finished in the red, and we couldn't convince enough people to buy even 10K shares of DRCO. You need to call your broker and say that you have declared a RED FLAG DAY, and have them change your account balance back to yesterday's for a do over.
KRAP-tos finishes KRAPPILY, ending up in the middle of the pack. On the positive side, it did manage to stay out of the manure pile (snicker)
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Pics - The discernible question above was regarding the replacement of Grant Thronton with Deloitte, and I've already commented on that. The choice is good, the timing is optimal, and perhaps the change will be non-eventful. What you do not realize is the SIZABLE difference between a collection of small, independent companies under common corporate control and a cohesive $1B defense contractor. I believe that your talk about buy out or merger is premature. Like DeMarco has said - anybody can buy a bunch of companies - the hard part is getting them to work together as one. Deloitte is an EXCELLENT choice if the BOD LISTENS to them. There is not a lot of Tier I A/D management experience at Kratos, and perhaps Deloitte consulting can improve processes, policies, and procedures along that path ($$$.) Kratos is a collection of Tier III Suppliers with the same logo on their business cards. They are struggling (as a company) to do the heavy lifting required to move to the next stage of sub-system integrator. Installing a $30MM security system with $20MM worth of purchased components is not easy, but you need to understand that it is not rocket science. Designing a jet powered drone IS rocket science - but unfortunately, Kratos wants to compete as a peer against the big boys. There is a HUGE difference between SBA directed procurements and fair and open competition at that level, as DeMarco complained about ("I don't know how that other brand name A&D company bid that low. We're not going to do anything that stupid") at the last conference call.
Kratos is not Titan. Titan was a bunch of ma and pa temporary placement agencies (think Kelly girls for the Defense industry) of about the same size spread across the country, each located on Perimeter Road at military bases. L3 took a long time to integrate Titan - even 7+ years after their purchase, Titan still had their own employment website. I believe that it will be even more difficult to integrate KTOS.
eb twister Still mis spelling KRATOS , oh well you can continue doing so but what would it get you??????, me it is an irration as I have invested my money into KRATOS as a LONG SHARE HOLDERand resent your continual , HOWEVER it allows me to expand my views towards the BRIGHT FUTURE AHEAD FOR KRATOS /// KTOS. Heres todays Top Percentage Gainer and the other 9 contenders ( in the Green Zone and 1 in the red ZONE. KRATOS,+1.53%, DRCO+ 1.39%, BA++1.02%, CUB+0.81%, GD+ 0.60%, LMT+ 0.54%, HRS+0.48%, RTN+0.43%, NOC+0.31%, SAI---0.07%. A total of 8 trading days left in this month with 2 fridays closesand KRATOS LIKWES FRIDAYS be seeing what happens I sure like the share price moving up over the old 52 week price of 6.21 per share and now seems to be increasing several times this month over that 6.66 and I would say maybe this Friday it will be eclipsed and we see that 7.00 figure, I would like that over the weekend. See all on posting amtomorrow late now Pics.
bidnow73 All of this very high Volume aprox 5 Million Shares allready traded since June 6th, 3rd an 4th were only 400,000 v olume, the point is cause for KRATOS to exceed the 6.21 price per share in first week of June and now seeing 52week price per share at 6.66. Could this be part of accumulation on a coming future event ???????????I say could be . The real tickler is that now A FORM 8 was posted on SEC FILINGS JUNE 14thsource Kratos investor page it shows a new entry into KRATOS INTERIOR CIRCLEall the T were crossed and all the I Dotted, Find info under SEC KRATOS FILINGS . What my gathering is as a result of this new entity coming into the Picture aprox timing of this enermous volume trading increase in Volume as well as in actual share price increase. The new institution may be bringa large array of very smart class of institutions and long range players and just might like the very well placed KRATOS for continual receiving Government contracts, also could it be that the play is begining to bring up VALUE of Kratos for a very satisfactory SHARE PRICE for a BUY OUT OR EVEN A PARTNERSHIP or even a MERGER , Point being This unusual timing around the BUDGET CLOTHIURE could be having favorable effects , lots of PLATFORMS are solidyfing with long range continuation of F35 and so many related Satellites and Missile Defense Systems and CYBERSECURITY , Take a look at just who the new Player is and the overall strength that it adds and brings to the TABLE, lots of followers and players could instantly become involved and that is why I seem to say ACCUMULATION is taking place and I could see by end of 2nd Quarter CLOSE OUT and Starting 3rd Quarter we all may view whats going on 2nd quarter closes in just 8 trading days on a FRIDAY JUNE 28th all im doing is trying to point you into very favorable areas and bring clarity into what appears to me as to what could be taking place , do your own conformation and put your evaluation on this scenario would appreciate , PIC
Take a look at the daily candle chart. How come I keep getting the vision of Pics on the phone with his broker at 3:59p.m. - "But sir, the market price is at $6.63. Are you sure you want to buy at $6.65?"
rpoe41 Tuesday June 18th Let itet KRATOS RUN , just looked and saw Kratos leading up 1.53%. GD=1.01%, CUB +0.79%. Best right now looking at KRATOS is this very large VOLUME for them , the last 8 trading days KRATOS has traded over 4,334,1.97 Million Volume way over average and this was on increase on share price from June 6.10 now 6.65 per share and went over 52 week top of 6.21 avg, whats going on ?????vpolume big increase and share price increase I did see a form 8 filed June 10th and explination and expansion seems to be working very well, FORM 8 to SEC shows what is is covering and the letter of satisfaction filed EDGAR JUNE 14th by parties involvedSOUNDED GREAT TO ME and now seems to be adding interest for lots of new investors , could it be something very BIG that is going to be advantages for KRATOS CURRENT SHARE HOLDERS and the new ones appears to be that, Source KRATOS HOME PAGE UNDER INVESTORS SECTION SEC FILINGS, saw it Yesterday and put 2+2 and GOT A OVERWHELMING YES GREAT MOVE. Just a note from Picsantee, pics.
For the first time in more than a month, KRAP-tos finishes in the manure pile. For the YTD, the # of wins (28) is still larger than the # of losses so you can be sure that power investors are still happy. (snicker)
Sentiment: Strong Sell
