    Time to put the company up for sale?

    From the little I can see, it may be time to sell or to liquidate the company. The company's business is in a general trend of decline and paying people to run a public company, just because the company still has assets, isn't likely to be in the best interest of shareholders.

    Anyone have any thoughts?

    • A special one time dividend would be a nice present before the end of the year. Especially since they have no plans to spend the cash on an acquisition or stock buyback.

      Sentiment: Hold

    • they still have a 6 positive and 3 negative fundamental score .. the positives being much more important than the negatives including , no debt , cash flow growth , pe and even still the 5 yr. eps growth is still positive .. my concern is the recent decline in revenue and earnings . Was it a temporary situation or is this the start of something that will end up moving the fundamentals to a more negative area .. China is experiencing a huge growth in movie attendance.. they need to send some salesmen over there . If some entertainment co. wanted to get into this business , the old high of $9 would be a fine price to pay . I doubt the directors will try to sell on their own . What we need to see more is even a small boost in the next earnings report or at least as expected .. anything that doesnt meet expectations will send the stock further down and everyone is already losing as it is .

      • composer.... Thanks for your thoughts....... my thoughts aren't so much for near-term but longer term...... As in-home screenings become better and more affordable, I see in-home theater drawing from the "movie" experience...... As you say, China may very well be the exception. I'm thinking a company perhaps like 3M might have some interest in the screen business. The monitoring business could be attractive to other firms with similar setups. Sales and service of projectors.... JMO but that might better be managed more efficiently through a privately owned firm. Just rambling a bit but I'd hope this option is at least reviewed by management. Last quarter's loss may have been an aberration but was bothersome.
