    Hate to say it....

    sounds like Durig would weigh in (judging by reading his perceived aggravation in his analysis)

    • We should talk to him and see how much he is managing...Let him know that we are ready to join him if wants to get something going to rock this management and let them know we are not just sitting here waiting to get in the a$$. Who wants to coordinate a discussion with him??

      • ive talked to TA on the phone about a month ago....went over my concerns...almost 1 hour,,,I was told the CEO not only had the stock options but had been buying shares (didnt know how much), they were optimistic, I asked about HPT and they said everything was done "arm's length" transactions...I also asked how do shareholders know the new rental rates with HPT were even competitive (as just bc they lowered the rent doesnt mean they are not still too high!?!)...I was told they had a 3rd party involved who specialized in this area....bottom line is I came across thinking management had a definite interest in TA stock appreciating. I would have thought with 2 BUY recommendation (both at $8/share) that would have sparked it along with a strong Q2...I bought more shares after my call....

      • I'll talk to Randy.

    • I've talked to Durig several times. He's a very good guy - extremely informed. Careful not to put words in his mouth, but he too feels very strong that TA is really primed to crush it and should be priced accordingly. Obviously, they need to continue to execute and management needs to be more accountable to it's shareholders - but outside of that it's a HUGE value!
