Yup looks like the doom boys were paid shorts. Learn to ignore them. This is a sound company making money in bad times. Just think what the up side will be. Wish I had the $$ to buy more when it was $5+ oh well, I still am ok .
Congrats for getting 100% return on your money, but don't draw the faulty conclusion that everyone who thinks ASH is not well-managed is a "paid short" that's oversimplifying. Guys like bluto obviously know the company well, which could never be true of a "paid short". I would draw a different conclusion - that the high volumes could indicate ASH is in-play.
yeah its great that this stock is finally moving up but remember folks this stock was trading at $50+ about this time a year ago. Its more than the economy that wrecked this company and its stock price. great for investors today if someone shows up with $20 per share offer , not so good for all those fired, driven to quit, or retire and those who will be fired as integration of Herc goes on . If it gets aquired even more job loses most likely. And those that get the biggest reward, the architects of the whole mess. Was a nice place to work until JOB took over. Sure John Hall and Chellgren had their faults but they weren't wreckless with the biz. They left those that knew the most about the biz to run it just make a decent return. JOB had to have it all his way and trashed everything. I would be willing to bet that divisional SGA is near zero while corporate SGA is still huge in comparison.
