The companies have such a nice growth before they
go public, but as soon as they go public the
earnings drop. Look at
for the last 5 quarters, .10, .11, .19, .20, .25, but
this quarter estimate is at .23. Isn't that why this
company sucks or better say, we are loosing money.
By the time this stock grows I will be six feet
under, unfortunately for you I plan on living at least
60 more years. Sounds to me like you have
physcological problems. I'm out of here for good. Off to find a
more mature audience, like my 3 year old child.
That's for you, Brent...your life isn't gonna be
worth much if you're six feet under and makin' minimum
wage!!! I love this stock and this company. And while
there ARE other companies out there to invest in, this
is a solid, local company run by good people. The
only anger I have is the fact that you have nothing
better to do but scream and whine like a cat, when
somone grabs it and runs its nuts across a
cheese-grater. Sick huh?? You better watch where you are
steppin' and who you are insulting. If you don't own the
stock, stay off the board (i.e. Weren't you taught if
you don't have anything nice to say...don't say
anything at all?) I will remember you when this stock
commences its growth cycle...I WILL remember you...one
man's fun is another's h*ll!!!
Say anything you want about salaries, people
being a dork, whatever. Pissed off people on a message
board are only pissed at making a bad investment. You
should help FII and invest your money in one of their
equity funds instead of pissing and moaning that your
losing and will continue to lose your money with this
stock. Grow Up mc lemmy, my salary is worth ten times
Some factual information on Federated...they made
a great investment decision getting rid of this
Brent guy. Glad to hear you are making three times the
minimum wage, now Brent...$15/hour is pretty good cash
for a low life like yourself. Besides, isn't hoarding
your old security card a violation of security policy
for FII?!? They should lock you up anyway for being
such a dork!! It is always easy for old employees to
point the finger at former employers...just like
ODonnell and Lloyd!!
PS - Who cares if it is
non-voting stock...what the h*ll are you gonna be voting on
in a family-run business, idiot-boy!!
If you'd like I'll send you my old ID card. I
left Federated on very good terms and tripled my
annual income, I'm just sharing factual information. I
guess the truth hurts people who make bad investments.
Two things: First I'm not an owner of this stock.
Second I'm not comparing Federated to anybody, except to
say that public mutual fund companies are able to
purchase their company stock in their portfolios. I am a
financial analyst and a former employee of Federated
Investors. I've read the prospectus, as have my associates.
We all feel the same, this NON-VOTING stock is going
nowhere. I think Federated is a great company and I gained
valuble experience by being there, but the fact is it
doesn't have the type of products that will increase its
earnings on a consistent basis (mainly equities funds). If
you don't agree thats fine, but do everyone a favor
and keep your juvenile comments to yourself. Why
would I go to Three Rivers when the Steelers and
Pirates stink anyway?
Brent...wake up!! Dreyfus is a completely
differnt issue. You can't compare apples to oranges. If
you don't like this stock, get the h*ll out!! Same
goes for all you other w*ssies that are just cranky
and ticked off because you dove into this stock and
lost money. This stock is not an overnight sensation.
I wouldn't expect it in the 50's anytime soon.
However, if your looking for a nice long-term stock with
stabile growth, then this is a good stock for you. That
is why analyst give it a strong buy. If you thought
you could buy at 19 and sell at 28 this year...then
you are the real idiots. It is stupid investors like
that, which 'cause the market to act in goofy ways.
Find something else to do with your time than ridicule
a good, family owned company that has a long-term
perspective...go spank your monkey in the men's room at Three
Get real, these are very conservative money
managers, they're not going to trade in their own stock. As
I said, it could be a conflict of interest. I NEVER
SAID IT WAS AGAINST THE LAW TO OWN THEIR OWN STOCK.
The point being, why risk any insider trading
conflicts, which in fact, the last time I checked was still
