    why is stock down?

    The answer to this question is fairly simple,
    really. People buy stocks for two main reasons:

    1)
    The stock price has been going up, and they
    feel
    it will continue to do so

    2) The company is
    profitable, and pays high dividends on an investment


    Systemax Stock has gone down due to several unprofitable
    quarters. The company is working hard at turning this
    around, as I have seen from a number of changes in the
    past couple of months. While this doesn't mean an
    immediate return to profitability, I do believe that it
    should accomplish this within a number of months. Once
    this is accomplished, the increased dividends should
    make the stock more attractive, and the stock price
    should start to rise. As this happens, people will take
    notice of it, and other will buy, driving the price
    higher. Historically, the best time to get into a stock
    like this is when it is down in the doldrums, and when
    the company is making logical changes in their actual
    operations to become more profitable. (of course, if you are
    a day trader, this would not be an attractive
    stock)
