Since you're so LONG in this stock, you gotta be pretty deep under water in this POS.
If focusing on your "issues" keeps you going, then use them. But don't go so far as to pat the management on the back and tell us what a great job they've been doing for "long-term investors" when probably every non-insider stockholder, regardless of his timeframe, is under water in this POS. What are you going to tell us next? That a loss isn't a loss until you sell?
Check with the IRS? You really are an amateur at this. You evidently don't know that the IRS does consider a price drop to be a REALIZED (actual) loss but will not allow it to be RECOGNIZED (taxable) until the stock is sold. Better yet, why don't you ask your broker for margin for what you paid for this POS, or your banker. Even better, why don't you ask for what you paid for it in the open market if you're not fully convinced of your loss.
Furthermore, we live in an era where public companies, especially tech companies, no longer use dividends as a means of rewarding stockholders. Stockholders are rewarded almost exclusively on one thing: share price appreciation. This means that REGARDLESS of how profitable a public company is, stockholders do not benefit unless the stock price increases. You seem to be suffering from the naive point of view that as long as a company has a good product, stays profitable, keeps money in the bank, and grows, that its stock price will increase. That may be the way it works in your fantasy world but that's not the way it works in the financial market. This may come as a shock to you but there is this little something called COMPETITION that causes the world to turn differently than you envision. I'm not referring to the day-to-day business competition dealing with products and similar businesses that you seem to know something about. I'm talking about the competition for investment dollars that ALL companies compete for. You bash the importance of PR because you don't understand that investment money flowing into this stock is, in the end, the only thing that should matter to a public shareholder. Investment money flows as much, if not more, on human psychology as on a company's fundamentals, and it is that psychology that EVERY savvy executive tries to control in favor of his company.
Now, jacadaman, you tell me if this management team has done a good job for its stockholders up to this point. You may give them an A+, but the market is pretty clear on its grade. For your sake, perhaps we should end our discussion here. Continuing it would only reveal even more the extent of your ignorance.
