    JOB - A 1998 AAII Shadow Stock

    The AAII Journal, Feb 1998, was mailed this week. It carries the AAII annual listing of smaller-cap stocks - 333 total among the many thousand. They are the ones that "are out of the glare of research analysts and institutional investors....historical evidence indicates, that over the long term, small-firm stocks provide greater returns than large-firm stocks.... Lastly, the time and effort it takes investors to analyze individual stocks may be better rewarded in the small-firm area."

    So guess what little company was again included this year?

    • Didn't you recently try to hype your stock on this board. Perhaps on Jan 17th in Message #26?

    • HIR is an IT staffing firm located in Dallas, Texas it has offices in Houston, Austin, Atlanta, Raliegh, Kansas City and
      Chicago. It is very underfollowed just as Job was a year ago. It has very savy management, good reputation, good accounts (for one is
      sprint), and is growing very fast. They are opening up an office in Denver in the next couple of months. They will be in Los Angles
      on March 1-3 to speak at the Cruttenden Roth investors conference. This should allow them to tell their story to institutional
      investors. Also their earnings are coming out a couple days afterward which should be well recieved. GOOD LUCK.

    • Last night I was watching that show with Maria Bartaromo and Tyler Mathison when a so called expert was asked about his
      predictions as to what companies would be most likely to do well this year and his response was. That small to mid cap companyies will
      do well because big companies will most likely be purchasing shares in these companies because they need more places to put
      their money. In addition he said that one of the most likely areas for potential buy outs and placing this money would be in the
      temporary staffing companies. This sounds good to me. There is a company called Administaff in this area that American Express just
      purchased 5% of the other day and they have the option of purchasing another 14% of it in the next 2 years. I looked at this company
      and its fundamentals were no where near as good as JOB. However it is a much larger company. Its price doubled in two days after
      the purchase. Before the purchase its price had languished for at least a year.

      On another subject has anyone else noticed that their is someone who decides to sell 5000 to 10,000 shares of job almost everyday during the last 2 hours of the trading day? Everyday that the price gets above 17 someone sells off as many shares as he can at 17 or above. When he can't get 17 he stops selling until the price rises again then the pattern starts all over. I can't wait until this jerk runs out of shares. Just venting a little frustration.

      • In response to posting #52, Bozo struck again, price rose to high 18's till someone killed price by dumping large block of shares in late afternoon.
        Anybody know who this clown is? I doesn't appear, at least not in an obvious manner, that these shares are being repurchased later that day or the next morning, so how many shares does he (they?) have anyway?

      • I think you're on target and we're seeing the start of at least a six month bull run in these small stocks after several
        years of promises from the "experts". Predict it and they will come (eventually). Everyone's talking about the overpriced and
        overvalued S&P500 and blue chips, plus the small investor is starting to become more savvy about the returns with the right choices on
        these S&M companies (this isn't the Bill and Monica board so that's Small & Mid). MMs need to try to match their recent annual
        returns and are hunting constantly too.

        Now, piece this with the demand for skilled labor problems especially in the tech area (predicted by labor dept that it may
        take a few years to finally balance the supply/demand as they are even trying to retrain the Boomer/Geezer gen to take the
        slots). The contractual and temp placement companies can provide quite a lucrative service for themselves and the employee. So, it
        appears that these companies will do well for several years. Then it's a matter of finding the quality ones to buy into.

        As far as the block trading, which I don't follow, wouldn't it be interesting if it was an insider? Then, as you posed, WHY? I kind of feel that the p/e in the mid-20's is the place to be and maybe someone else is comfortable there too. Perhaps we will see the trend of the same size blocks being accumulated a few weeks before the next ER.
