The stock is moving a few pennies regularly most likely because a friend or relative of management who thinks they know something is accumulating.
And NOLs have zero value on their own. They only have an offset value. Until and unless this company makes money, the NOLs add no value. When and if this company does make money, the value of the NOLs will only be the tax savings each year that would have been otherwise paid. That's it. Hardly a several hundred million dollar windfall under this management team.
Now, if you want to talk woulda, shoulda, coulda think "rule of 72". If management would have merely put the money in dividend funds, we'd be well on our way to doubling the value of the company off the $1 starting point and shooting to the moon because the NOLs basically act as compound interest on profits. Every year we would have kept the profits tax free to make even more profit the next year. In an environment with a guaranteed profit payout, the marketplace would have seen the compounding effect of the NOLs and we really would be at about $3 right now and heading to $5 or $10 within the next decade.
But alas, we're stuck with the management team that pays itself millions in cash and stock options while it drops millions on make-up companies, reports three years of losing money and burns through cash. It's the exact opposite of what they should have done.
And it's kind of ironic that the few people left on this board are now expressing optimism with this management team under the belief that Zell is taking over--- which is really just another way of replacing this management team.
Choco, sell your stock if you still really own any. Probably can get 60c or so and if its really rising on some friend of managements weird belief then its gonna go back to .30c, so take the dough & run...If on the other hand you want to watch the creation of a real entity by Pro's than be patient, be quiet and just sit back and enjoy the ride. As I said to you a year ago, your missing the entire dynamic here and my guess is you didn't buy a share at .25 even after the dinner plate was set right in front of you. Your still fighting this, so for our own good sell Mortimer sell..
