I am not sure why you need to tell me to crawl under a rock. The proof will not come from me as I said. If you read my post with some repose you will see that I laid out the form of the proof.
The next objector says the administration loves Athena. I have no clue why anyone would say that and no clue as to the relevance in any case. The administration loved Solyndra and RIMM. For all the good or relevance that made.
The current estimates for next year along with the already admitted NET margins (which have been eroding) as well as the huge macro meaningful use issues leave me believing this stock price is overvalued at $25 actual GAAP earnings which would be a P/E of 20.
At a price of $36 the P/E would be 30.
My posts do not tell people to climb under rocks. They simply lay out data points.
Yet people like you offer nothing. And add no value. You represent the Athena long.
Imagine that senior mgt asked you to speak to the investors. What would you say? Would you indulge in your irrelevant puerile rants? I am sure not. You would decline. Because you have nothing to say that advances the ball in any fashion either way.
So grow up. This board does not need this self indulgent stupidity.
If you have something fundamental to say then say it. Otherwise zip it.
George - IMHO you have the stronger arguement and more common sense given the incredible valuation and other facts you laid out. Buyers at this point could not possibly stand on stage and defend the price of the stock at 150 x PE. We've seen this in other companies such as GMCR and the likes when they hit extraordinary valuations only to have suffered dramatic declines. This is too rich for me to buy in here. As for name calling and idiotic threats of being a worst nightmare that is just childish nonsense from immaturity or total desperation. Good trading to all. Do your own research and make your own decisions and take responsibility for those decisions and respect others. We dont move markets on these boards and I for 1 would like to see more posts with substance from both sides and empty garbage posts from anyone. I dont post like I used to on these boards because they became a haven for mostly foolish empty baseless non-sense and a waste of time. But from time to time I chime in to see if anything changed. Apparently with few exceptions like George there is NO change.
Does NOT look good at over 150 PE and I don't like the guidance. When there is enough uncertainty and skepticism the markets usually punish stocks like this in time. Seen it enough times and made money on ATHN up and down. They need GREAT earnings IMHO. If NOT then look out below with this over valuation. I am out until I see some signs to get back in. No balls No babies but also you can lose them when you're in a stock and it goes in the wrong direction. Not enough evidence for me to go one way or another but if I was to trade it would be short at this point. Good trading to all. Do your own homework and make your own decisions.
