    Another seer of the truth
    I SAID IT FIRST AVID
    IS SINGLE DIGIT STOCK !!!!!!
    Their management
    SUCKS
    Their product is GREAT
    THIS COULD BE A GREAT
    TURNAROUND STORY BUT THEIR MANAGEMENT SUUUUCKS
    They keep
    lurging about for somthing
    new and they neglect their
    core customer base
    Don't Beleive me TRY BUYING A
    SYSTEM
    FROM ONE OF THEIR BULLSHIT DEALERS
    YOU ARE GOING TO
    FEEL LIKE YOU'RE
    BUYING A USED CAR FROM A DIVORCE
    LAWYER WHO USED TO SELL REAL ESTATE.

    THE ONLY
    THING STOPPING THIS STOCK FROM BREAKING OUT IS THEIR
    MANAGEMENT
    THEY JUST DON'T HAVE A CLUE!!!!!!

    TRUTH!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • I don't know if your prediction of single digits
      is correct, but I agree with you on your assessment
      of their dealer network. I continue to read just how
      difficult it is to buy product from them. Why they won't
      sell product on their own is beyond me! They don't
      have the top line revenue growth to justify a dealer
      model - how can their Board of Directors allow this?
      What are these dealers selling?

      • From '95 to '97 Avid management eliminated their
        field sales organization in favor of a dealer network.
        Their best field sales people simply signed on at their
        local "dealer" instantly raising their commissions
        dramatically.

        There's a Dilbert that says: "Centralize
        everything that is decentralized for efficiency" then one
        year later "Decentralize everything that is
        centralized for competitiveness" - Dilbert says: "the man is
        a genius"

        Lest you think things were much
        better when Avid ran their own sales operation, I recall
        once I ordered a Media Composer from Avid during the
        field service period and it arrived in forty or fifty
        pieces (completely unassembled right down to a baggie
        filled with screws) with no instructions for assembly.
