What I see today is a MM / Daytraders playing
with this. This is not genuine buying today. We don't
need daytraders playing with this. Too low of a volume
stock. It looks like they did suck some people in
though. Be careful.
named wallstarb has been pumping itgr-he is an
excellent trader.says he knows insiders at the co. and
helped to get them off of the ground ! hopefully
earnings will be great and we can all make some $.i have
enjoyed the product line for years but cant afford to
lose $ if the ship is sinkin !
I had no trouble buying four figures in the AM on
Monday, but every other time I bought a flurry of buys
came in later. Maybe I am guilty of daytrading but
often is the case that one buy deserves another. Notice
on Thursday last week that we got a huge lift on
only 9.2k shares. Why so much from so little? The next
day, there was a LOT of buying. The point that seems
obvious to me (since I could have been badly burned) was
that the price has been down so long, it doesn't take
a lot to move it and most traders are ready for an
Gee, I've been on this thread longer
than anyone (see the first 10 messages). Yes, I was
bullish in those first few posts when the price was $1
and I even posted the morning back in Feb 98 when the
earnings report came out which boosted Integrity 45% for
the day. Was I guilty of hype? It was LUCK. I didn't
do it. My other piece of luck was being home sick on
November 30 - probably the only way to play that
Imo, the company represents a better value now than
ever and so it's as relevant now to review
buyout/takeover prospects that have been on the table in the
past. Is it likely? Probably more likely than last
year. The company has diversified considerably in the
last year....all the while sticking with the 'praise
and worship' genre. As with any diversification, it
takes a few quarters to realize the potential profit
margins. Hang in there. It should be only a couple days
til 2ndQ earnings.
The thread gets down on
good moves but remember, if you weren't trading last
week, you only have half the story. My four figure
purchases Monday morning were absorbed easily but a
fraction of that almost burned me just a few hours later
as well as on Tuesday and Thursday. Already, this
rally has held longer than any rally generated by a
press release. Take my word for or not, but this stock
does not want to hang around $3.
if this is a temporary daytraders induced glitch
then it'll come right back down when they bail
imo this company's stock price considerably lags
comparable companies - stock price is the ultimate measure
of success or failure and thus far ITGR is a dismal
failure and management a major disappointment
Now that the stock price is closer to 4 than to
3, is everyone happier. It seems so! I'm seeing no
messages about how ITGR management is not giving
stockholders good value, or enough good PR, etc. Is this
"silence" an indication that everyone is just waiting to
see what announcements (if any) the management will
make when earnings are released?
this assumes that the earnings will be positive. What
is the consensus on this board? Will the earnings
announcement be positive?
Please log your comments on
what you are thinking.
rumor reported in the Wall St. Journal - is that
the 'chat room' to which you refer? I have already
posted a link to it.
Also, Coleman assured us
that our profit margins would be better in the coming
quarters (compared to last quarter). Is that not good? And
yes, the quarterly report came out July 22 last
It's funny but when ITGR ran in the red a few years
ago nobody went around telling us not to sell. Pity.
anyone else who makes my stocks rise. I'm not a
day trader, but it may be something that I'll try. I
bought ITGR at 3 1/8 on 8/18/98 and held it until
12/1/98. About that time the stock suddently jumped to 12
(I believe). I saw it on the way down (at about 7)
and sold at 5 3/16 for 64 % gain in 3+ months. I
don't know why this stock rose, but if it was day
trading, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
I'm in again since
3/16/99 at 3 1/2 with a goal of 5. This time, I placed a
sell order at 8 just in case history repeats.
at least one poster is touting a buyout of ITGR
by Gaylord (GET), and assuming earnings will be out
July 22nd and will be good. Please note that is NOT me
talking, that is one of the posts I read on the board
characterized as a daytraders board in one of the posts
Day traders do pump up the volume and make trading
more liquid, but without good earnings news or
something else to move the stock, that kind of activity can
leave a stock with a bit of hangover.
if you are a long term investor, that sort of pump
and dump is just background noise. Buffet said
something like, in the short term, the stock market is a
vote counting machine, long term, it weighs profits
and growth. Shares of stock represents and investment
in a percentage (equivalent to the percentage of the
company represented by the shares of stock) of all of a
companies future earnings. Nothing more, nothing less. ITGR
will go up over the longer term if it has consistent
growth and profitability, or it will be the first stock
in history that has not.
Eh, a pretty
disjointed post. I'm done.
