Six years ago the internet bubble took the wind from Sapient's sails. Despite having plenty of wind in the economy Sapient's Captain, head swollen with arrogance from his internet boom killing, has held a steady course apparently believeing that the wind will again change in his favor. How long will he continue to sit on the bridge with the wind blowing directly in his face???? How long with the investors allow this to continue???
Sapient stock is pure speculation. It has made no material advance or over the past six years. Sapients stock holders are people who actually believe it could return $190 again, institutions too sucked into the rhetoric and embarassed to sell, or pump-and-dump day traders trying to make a spread between $5.25 and $5.75.
If you invested $5000 in Sapient six years ago it would now be worth about $1350. If you invested $5000 in MA real estate six years ago it could have grown to nearly $80,000. How is your Sapient investment working for you?
Hey Jerry - if your company offered something valuable and was competitive it would succeed. I konw your hugely inflated ego could never accept the obvious truth.
Comparing different asset classes is always an interesting perspective. Suggests that equities aren't a good long term investment over next 5 years, yet real estate is. We'll have to wait and see on that one.
I agree 100%. Until this company can achieve some coinsistency with its quarterly results, it will be nothing more then a trading stock.
Boy, Jerry and Stu baby really have themselves in a mess. There credibilty has sunk to an all time low. The difference between 4Q results and guidance, which was given a couple short months ago, and the Q1 results is pretty astonishing. No wonder the stock has beeen plastered.
THe way I see it this stock is dead $ for a while. 2nd quarter is another clean up quarter and it will take at least 2 qrts of decent, consistent financial performance before investors come back.
