    Just bought 10,000 shares for our family owned private equity fund

    Best opportunity to reenter MSI. We believe that predicted revenues have been intentionally deflated, as has been the case with management for years. Not only will they beat, with recently announced government contracts, MSI will continue to grow both its top and bottom lines. Our projected price target for 2014 is $75/share.

    • This is one of my worst ever investments. Here is my history. The 1st is a basis, the rest reinvested dividends:

      date shares total price $/share
      27/11/2006 71.43 $6,295.88 $88.14
      16/01/2007 0.2 $14.44 $73.19
      13/04/2007 0.2 $14.48 $70.88
      13/07/2007 0.2 $14.52 $72.60
      15/10/2007 0.19 $14.56 $78.28
      14/01/2008 0.24 $14.60 $59.70
      15/04/2008 0.41 $14.65 $36.07
      15/07/2008 0.54 $14.73 $27.06
      15/10/2008 0.68 $14.84 $21.68
      15/01/2009 0.88 $14.97 $16.93
      14/10/2011 0.37 $16.50 $45.08
      17/01/2012 0.35 $16.58 $47.10
      16/04/2012 0.34 $16.65 $48.26
      16/07/2012 0.37 $16.73 $45.59
      15/10/2012 0.4 $19.87 $50.05
      15/01/2013 0.35 $19.97 $57.72
      15/04/2013 0.32 $20.06 $63.28
      15/07/2013 0.34 $20.14 $59.59
      15/10/2013 0.4 $24.12 $60.91
      15/01/2014 0.36 $24.24 $66.41

      I'm down 18%. The majority of my other investments have well beaten the S&P500, but not this one. Is it time to move on, into better investments?

      • I don't think you're accounting for the spin-offs. I don't know if this chart is accurate but you should see the point:

        http://finance.yahoo.com/echarts?s=MSI+Interactive#symbol=msi;range=20060227,20140226;compare=;indicator=volume;charttype=area;crosshair=on;ohlcvalues=0;logscale=off;source=;

        In any event, add up what it's worth now to the spin-off money you've received and current value of any spin-off stock you still have, then subtract your original purchase price. I'm assuming dividends were reinvested like you stated, otherwise you'd add that cash to the first part.

    • Well 'they' definitely bought into the extreme dip this morning. Funny how the ANALysts upgrade the day before a report. Report was good but forecast was pffft.
