    trouble ahead

    These guys just did a huge shelf registration which is equal to 2x current market cap. I wouldn't want to be long in this name right now.

      • What's not to like? They are about to dilute shareholders by issuing 25% more stocks if the vote goes through. Inherently, there is a conflict of interest going on. In his handbook "Venture Capital Investing", it mentions that Mr. Gladstone and his daughter owns a venture capital company together. IMO, this is a serious conflict of interest. All the best deals will go to their company first, while all the leftovers will go to Gain. If you bother to read the 10k, GAIN is a shell company with no employees. Mr. Gladstone is hired as an "adviser" who gets paid upfront immediately for all the deals done. In effect, I see this as a way of milking the shareholder's wealth.

    • This stocks is a long , the dividend it less but alway something and better then a bank, buy 500s and let it ride. You will have a nice piece of change years for now ( like a savings account )

      • last qtr before earnings this stock tanked big . that is when i bought it . the next day bang went up to 52 week high . now it is doing the same thing. i dont believe they would of increased dividend from 4 cent to 4.5 cents if they were not doing well. i just put on a little bit . if its green tomorrow morning like i think it will be then i will slam on some shares . if its way down i will do the same.
