    Patience is a virtue

    Is anyone else's patience wearing thin with this
    company. All we ever see is growing results, better
    earnings, and beds added. Why doesn't the stock respond
    accordingly. What does this outfit need to do to get the
    street to appreciate what a good company it is.
    researchers are all bullish, they are in a growth industry,
    and the stock stagnates. I believe so much in this
    company, but if the stock gets above $27, I'm gone.

    • Just checked on USXX, they have several deals
      with WHC, trading right now at a very low price. Got
      rid of their CEO, along with a bad business decision.
      Now to be run by people with the most invested.
      Excellent contacts in Washington, etc.,etc., always helpful
      when conducting Govt. type business. @ .40 per share,
      looks to be cheap ,and ready for an uptick. Read the
      SEC filings on this one, including how the CEO had to
      go, and how the management is protecting this
      Company. Wackenhut is the prison operator company to own.
      These people running it are very sharp, and that's one
      of the reasons they have linked with USXX, they know
      that idle hands are the devils workshop, so they're
      giving their 'Residents', something productive to
      accomplish, and at the same time, filling some outsource
      needs. Very smart decision on someone's part, KUDOS to
      Wackenhut, and be patient with this one, when they beat
      exits out of I-net stocks without earnings, this is one
      of the places they'll seek some value.

    • ............................................................about CPV.
      Back when I was big on WHC, I was one of
      the people standing on line for CPV. Back then I
      thought WHC was going to be my ship coming in and that a
      spinoff was too good to be true. I jumped all over CPV as
      an IPO, and paid $23. It hasn`t ever seen anything
      near $20 since. Now it is down to $15. What I thought
      would be another ship coming in just amounted to the
      puppy of a dog. I think quite freankly both of these
      companies suck.

    • against the ever drowning WHC might be the REIT
      associated with it, CPV. Again, this is a strong buy from
      all who cover it. At the current levels, it also
      yields over 9% per annum. I stowed some money away, and
      use it almost as a money mkt/bond type investment.
      Just some thoughts to offset my disappointing trip
      with WHC.

    • from Pat Cannan to my email. He acknowledged that
      the industry as a whole is down. Two areas I feel I
      am & maybe others are weak at when learning about a
      company is the timing and safety aspects of a company.


      WHC is a value play it seems. Anyone want to fast
      track right now and hating to wait should catch
      Internetrain.

    • I have spoken with him and felt that he was a good sounding board for past and present info on WHC. I think he has been there at least 10 years.

    • on the management of WHC would cause them to take
      some actions to get this dog out of the trench it's
      in. All of us sorry people who believed Skousen and
      invested in this anchor should send an email to:
      pat.cannan@wackenhutcorp.com to get some fire started. This is the email of
      investor relations.

      This thing is like watching
      molasses run uphill in January....

    • To EASILY CONFUSED.............
      Look at my
      posts #`s 232 and 259, and you`ll see my feelings on
      the issue. Also, if you have acess to the aol WHC
      board, read my posts there. This company "officially
      sucks" as far as I`m concerned. I`ll be running right
      along side of you when it hits 27 - IF IT EVER DOES.

    • i got into this stock in 94 and every year the
      news coul't

      • No time for courage here....what we are
        confronted with is the dreaded "Mark Skousen Effect", where
        a stock languishes indefinitely or drops
        dramatically. If you don't believe me look at his other
        picks...Altif, Nissan, Midas Fund....don't know what garbage he
        is scamming off these days but I do know his stock
        picking/pumping nearly wiped out my portfolio several years ago
        (I believe he was pushing WHC then for about $20).
        Check out his record with Hulbert's - he's barely beat
        a money market.
