NATS is back to the same business model with the same management team that made them 1.57 per share in 96. NATS has a website that the investment community is little aware of since it is still under construction. If you look back through my posts, you will find the link to that site. They already offer their clients access to their accounts and all you have to do is get a broker on the phone to make the trade. It takes approx 30-40 seconds to have that broker on the phone. (try that with Etrade or Ameritrade) As a matter of fact. I have gone back to my full service broker and don't mind paying a few extra bucks to have someone I can rely on to be there when the market opens.
If you look around thru that website, it looks pretty obvious that NATS is looking to expand their web presence with an on-line trading system. However, even if they don't get it done this qrtr, that should still bode just fine for NATS. They have been doing more revenue than the 34-35 million they did when they acheived the 1.57 per share earnings of 96.
Management has been borrowing money to buy back the stock of this company.
Last but not least, if what you say is true and the short interest is in fact, 64,500 as of Friday, then I'd say that about 20% of the float has been shorted and they are guaranteed to buy. NATS is going to catch these shorts off guard just as AMZN and AMTD have done. etc.etc..
Actually I have a few other points that I could make but I am sitting here with my grandparents right now, setting up a new computer for them to tinker around with and my other points have been made all over this board. Take some time and do the reading. Then go read the 10q's and any other pc's of info you can find and come back here and tell me why I am wrong.
Hey shorters, go and play your game. you know well that nasdaq market will come back with a fury and when it does, you're toast.
When management is confident in their stocks, that's a strong sign to the investors that long-term goals will be met. It's been a crazy ride, however, you can't negate the fact that NATS has tons of CASH to make some aggressive moves which will place it in great position to enter the ON-LINE trading.
