    options and money flow look bullish

    keep in mind this company is still making money... it will be higher. The only thing i can think on the short interest is maybe a buyer is shorting is or a buyers investment bank. but januarys options are bullish. my guess is a buyer is calling the shots for them to unload forgien assets then a deal will be struck. I think facebook would be a good fit. since they are linking to monster, but bottom line this is a money making company...

    • No it hasn't, plus it's spent all the reserves and then some. $400M+ in share repurchase (as high as $32) and $600M+ in companies bought. Money that should have gone to the shareholder as a dividend. Plus it's lost over $1.62 so far this year alone.

      2004 - $0.61 on $846M
      2005 - $0.79 on $987M
      2006 - $0.28 on $1,116M
      2007 - $1.12 on $1.351M
      2008 - $1.03 on $1.343M
      2009 - $0.16 on $905M
      2010 - ($0.27) on $914M
      2011 - $0.43 on $1,040M
      2012 - ($1.64) on $682M (only 3 quarters)

      • look at the cash flow statement. the losses are accounting charge offs. .. i know your take on it from your post. it will be intersting to see how this plays out... as for the short interest, I know bond holders short a stock when a conversion is coming to get more shares. Maybe a buyer or its investment bank is shorting the stock to get a low buy out, and protecting it's self with options. there is a lot of open interest in the jan calls.... who knows....
