OK all of you ZQK INSIDERS...where are you?
McKnight, Hodge, Crowe, Brink and the rest of you who
flipped your options last year...why aren't you buying
any stock now. The lone exception is Robert Kirby who
bought a measly 6K shares @ $14.75 on Dec. 22. But at
least he added to his position (now owns 66K). Charley
Crowe and Harry Hodge own a COMBINED big fat "0"
shares. Why don't you two guys just QUIT the board.
MCKNIGHT...when are you going to buy a block of 100,000 shares?
When the stock reaches single digits?

If the Insiders are staying away, if the
Insiders won't support the company, if the Insiders fail
to show any confidence, why should anyone buy this
stock. Think about it.

I slam ZQK because:
(a) I was fired. I'm a
disgruntled former employee.
(b) I work for a slimey
(c) I have shorted a ton of the stock
Years ago I was shoulderhopped by a ZQK employee on a

my kids love quicksilver clothing which strikes a balance between very casual and chic. this company is way undervalued and an attractive candidate for a buy out. brand name, loyal following...
Let's not quibble over the DOWNGRADE...here's
what was posted:

Securities analyst Darren Barker issued a 4 page Company
Report on Quiksilver, Inc. Report highlights: 'The 2000

reflect an anticipated decrease in pre-bookings for the
company's crucial spring/summer season. The rating was
downgraded to ATTRACTIVE from Buy to reflect slowing growth.

FINALLY THE BIG HIT TO $20. Oh yes...it was always a buy,
even at $34. But those who followed his
recommendations are LOSING BIG TIME. Did you see any insiders
Buying during this period???? ONLY SELLS...ONLY SELLS.
The insiders knew that it was time to get out!
Who do I work for? That's a good question.
Eddie would - you keep bringing up Wedbush as if
their analysis states that this stock is a dog (as you
seem to think). THEY DOWNGRADED THIS FROM A STRONG BUY
to a BUY. Got that? They're still recommending that
you BUY the stock......Analysis on this Yahoo board

Do you have ANY business related work experience at

You two are made for each other. Trying to
convince the other that notwithstanding anything else
going on in the world, ZQK is still a "good" stock,
even if the both of you are getting
For once, look at the technical analysis. So what if
the P/E ratios are in the single digits. So what if
the company has shown growth, last year over the
previous. Stock values are based upon projections, all
historical info is factored in. How many months of this do
you have to take for you to come to the realization
that ZQK is just not worth it. The last two quarters
have been disappointing. Not necessarily from a
performance point of view (ie., historical data), but from a
projection point of view. Obviously, the future doesn't look
too bright. Don't take it from me, the street has
spoken. Look at the stock price, down almost 50% from the
quarter ending July 31. Since the last financials were
posted, ZQK has dropped from 18+ to 11+. Darren Baker
from Wedbush has analyzed ZQK for years. He was one of
ZQK's biggest backers. Not any longer. Don't listen to
me, listen to Darren Baker.
You can't think
of a better way to make money, why don't you just
put it in the bank and get a guaranteed 2%. At least
you won't lose any more than you're presently losing.
If he was in jail, then he couldn't be blamed for the "stealing" all of the shareholders money. EddieW37 was "robbed" of over $2M since summer. Do you think he should call the police?
Eddie - I'm wondering more and more what kind of
real business experience you have; much less knowledge
on SEC restrictions etc. with public companies.
You've been hassling ZQK and Mr. McKnight in particular
for not buying stock the last couple of weeks. But
for someone who supposedly tracks this company, one
of the basics you'd know is that their first fiscal
quarter ends 1/31/00 - and no insiders are supposed to do
any trading for a window of approx. 15 days prior to
the close date and a couple days AFTER the press
release of that quarter's financial results. That means
that all the corporate execs. and board members are
shut out from trading for almost a two month cycle out
of every quarter (assuming that ZQK posts their #s
approx. 3/15 - they're shut down this time around from
approx. 1/15 through 3/17) How much other mis-information
are you putting out there????
The point is simple...if McKnight wanted to show
any kind of support for HIS COMPANY, he would be out
in the open market buying large blocks. Don't tell
me he can't buy the stock on the open market...on
Dec. 22, ZQK Director George Kirby bought a measly 6K
shares...but at least he bought.
McKnight WOULD NOT BUY
now because he knows he will lose money...PURE AND
SIMPLE. If he won't buy, why should anyone else?
