    even more great news ..........

    Here are the latest updated fair values. These values are based on ACTUAL market share for the latest four quarters as extracted from their SEC filings.

    Average ttm Price/Sales ratio: 4.22

    Resulting fair values

    Symb_____ Fair______Over/Under Valued
    MCTR_____ $17.42_______-72.56%
    VITR_____ $5.1_______+03.14%
    TIBX_____ $6.78_______+98.23%
    WEBM_____ $17.61_______+13.86%
    SBYN_____ $10.93_______-09.88%
    IONA_____ $27.63_______-32.50%
    given that
    - Bear Stearns is on board
    - the MM's have shorted 11% of float
    - trading at 72.56% discount to peer group
    - guidance of 20% revenue increase in 2002, most of which will flow to the bottom line because of cost structure improvements,
    - cash flow positive and pro forma profitable a full quarter ahead of schedule

    my cap is off to all who short MCTR from here - you've either got balls or you're completely insane - the notion that there could be a degree of stupidity present crossed my mind. However, after considering the critical insight supplied by these shorts with such analytical terms as "pos", "bloated pig", etc, I discounted the idea completely!

    • As jwetchy, and several others have done, the best that can be done is to ignore the ramblings of the non-sensical posters. It takes away from the board as well as when new investors visit the board, they are welcomed to a bunch of amateurs arguing. It does not help the cause of longs. Mercator is beginning to get some exposure. Stayed focused and present valuable information to the board, and ignore the postings of those contributing nothing to the board. People use these boards to save time and research to links they may currently not be aware. Thanks to all with informative postings. And thank all of you who ignore the childish postings.

    • I could not have said it better myself. Travis gives new meaning to the term "caught red-handed". I believe travis has many aliases on this board some more indicative of his abilities than others (eg. mental_retard_short). Most (and hopefully all) of his aliases are on my ignore list. I've never seen any contribution from any of these aliases on this board apart from the idotic "bloated pig" and "pos" comments. It's odd that these guys would be shorting a company like MCTR. There are so many great shorting candidates out there, why pick one with such solid fundamentals where the valuation is so out of line with their peers. I can only presume these guys have a bone to pick with MCTR, maybe part of King's downsizing.
      As JCS says - there's nothing wrong with shorting but timing is very important. Shorting MCTR at this point reminds me of a scene from a movie where this character shows up for a gun fight with a pen knife. Needless to say he winds up full of holes and an unused weapon.

    • Endabaus, just let it go. You're letting this whole thing drive you crazy. You were proven wrong and you should stand up and take it like a man. Instead, you just keep digging yourself deeper into a hole. Drop the endabaus name and use one of your aliases and think before you post next time. You are your own worst enemy.


    • WHy would you short a 5.00 stock? are u broke? and that is all you can afford?
      I think there will be an upgrade this week from Shearson Lehman and if it happens you will be broke.

    • You've been saying the same crap since 10 bucks. You're a real genious.
