still no interest in this board. New high and BUY recommedation by 10 brokerage firms still this board sleeps. My conclusion is most stockholders and buyers of FD are the BIG BOYS and institutions. I'm putting my eggs in their basket. Thry're a lot more savvey investors than the oddlotters.
It would be nice to see $135 but that's not reality. I will be very pleased to see the stock hit $75 this year. That's what I believe will happen. Barring any major stock market hits that will shake us all that is. Not a bad year though!!i DO WISH WE COULD GET A FEW MORE RIGHT THINKERS TO PARTICIPATE ON THIS BOARD.
I don't think its a major problem that FD earnings will not increase for the rest of the year at the 150% increase in the first qtr of 98. If earnings increased at that same rate(150%) 1998 net earnings would be $1,437,000 and per share net would be $6.77 and the stock would be selling at $135 per share. So its not so important that earnings won't increase at thr rate of 150%.
we will see 58 to 60 this month. The performance has been outstanding, but we are starting to hit the good numbers from last year. If you look at what we have been beating,,it's not that big a deal. So... We will continue to see outstanding performance from fd vs other regional players but less of a percent over last year.that's all that they meant from the warning. I believe that they intend to exceed the promised numbers so they don't want us greedy types raising expectations beyond reason. This is still retail you know.
