    just whining like the rest

    I've been reading the posts here for a while
    hoping to find some answers to what's going on with this
    stock. Unfortunately, I'm long in this with an average
    cost of 19. Everytime we hit a new low, I think about
    bringing that down some more but I'm tired of throwing
    good money after bad. The theme here seems to be get
    me to twenty and I'm outta here. I must say, I was
    hoping for a target of thirty, but I think I'm going to
    punt at 20 also..
    Hope the line isn't too long if
    and when we get there. Everything looks solid here,
    what is the problem...surely the public that's
    forgotten impeachment already can't still be dwelling on
    the N.M. thing!

    • millenium you have to go to sleep for another
      year, because it does not really start (press and
      advertizing media notwithstanding)until Jan.1 2001. Try
      counting to 2000, beginning at 1. What is the last year of
      the first 2000 years???
      Happy investing and a
      Merry Christmas to you all.

    • Buying more stock at current levels.

    • for an even better value. Also have some WHC but WAK.b basically gives you WHC and the rest of WAK for nothing if you do the math.

    • New to WAK/WHC and looking for answers. I feel
      both are undervalued but it seems to me that WAK is a
      better buy than WHC.

      WAK owns 52+% of WHC, are
      growing revs and earnings at a higher rate, and
      expanding. While outsourcing 'corrections' and 'security'
      are fast growing trends, it seems to me that security
      (USA and International) will grow faster and be more
      lucrative.

      What am I missing?

      TIA,
      Ron

    • Here are my top 10 reasons NOT to buy WHC a.k.a.
      POS.............
      (1) Over $2.00 in cash per share.
      (2) Tax selling
      over in two weeks.
      (3) Float is thin 9.6 million
      shares.
      (4) ROE 18%, ROI of 11%.
      (5) P/E one half
      of the S.& P.
      (6) 7% of stock shorted.
      (7) 7
      analyst rate it a "Buy" and 3 a "Hold".
      (8) Projected
      5 yr. Growth twice the S.& P.
      (9) Debt free, and
      predictable earnings.
      (10)Domestic and International in
      scope.

      Hmmmmm.......aren`t those the same
      reasons someone gave as their top 10 reasons TO
      buy?
      Remember, these things on this list are all GOOD things,
      and doesn`t everyone here know that this company
      doesn`t do well with GOOD thing happening?

      Let me
      be the first on the board to...........

      W ish
      everyone a very
      H appy and merry
      C hristmas season

    • Sure I'm one of them....(smiles)...$22.50 basis
      nothingh to be proud off, my thinking is the new year may
      bring back value oriented stocks, plus have not seen
      any drastic changes in the company fundamentals, if
      it was good at $45 a share is now nearly 70% a
      better buy.
      Was hoping to get to tell my top ten for
      the comming year at the next Letterman show, but you
      all already know one of them..(smiles).

    • Deeply laughed big time at your Thanksgiving tidings posting...also cried afterwards when I actually thought of the folks who have basis amounts at the stock in the upper $20's and $30's.

    • Manboking...any chance we can get your top ten
      list on Letterman so this baby could get a little
      boost come the milennium? Lord knows the PR group here
      will take any leads from it's shareholders, I'm
      sure!

      Just a Monday morning thought...

    • I remember when this puppy IPO'd. I owned
      Corrections Corp of America when it was the top performing
      stock on the NYSE. I owned WHC when it had its last
      real run up in 1/96. I know the stock is actually down
      from where I sold it in early 96 and I've bought and
      sold it several times since- generally at losses.
      However, at current levels,the upside is much, much
      greater than the down. Want to remind you that WHC's
      operating results have been consitently great. Want to
      remind you that state government run prisons must have
      an alaternative - trust me on that. I'll buy here
      and hold and enjoy my returns. Don't let the stock
      performance tell you how to value a company - let the
      operating reults do that.
