It was not my intention to sway decisions, the things I posted are just things I missed with a lack of proper dd when I first came here, when the fundies looked to good for the big drop going on. I still like the fundies a great deal if management executes these next two quarters.
If you check my other post, you will find, I am indeed long the stock with a hold sentiment (though I seldom remember to mark it). I will very likely buy more at lower prices unless something crazy comes out of the upcoming report. The only shares of this company I have sold are a few shares I got one morning in pre-market with a bid I thought was a joke (it filled) and when the stock ran up I sold them.
I put in the other post, IMO you must accept you own part of a family business to be here. I have done that for now and am giving management the benefit of the doubt for this report, but with some protection.
Just did not want you to think I was bashing the stock, I own it going into earnings and unless the story changes drastically will own it at the next report.
i was lazy with doing my own dd and just looked at the fundies as well. i didn't bother to dig in and uncover the two classes of shares which is what swayed my decision not to buy. i prefer companies with somewhat higher insider ownership but not this much family ownership and such an advantage when it comes to voting. i think it hinders a company's ability to be objective about the company.
