    MAGS is a fence co.; wow, big deal

    read their product description; it's a wire fence that can detect when somebody touches it.

    http://www.magal-ssl.com/pages/faq.asp

    that's their main product. MAGS is not the next INVN. It looks more like SURE.

    Has anyone on this board ever tried to read their financials. There is NOTHING on Edgar. The financials provided at MAGS home page are Spartan. They tell virtually nothing. Not one analyst follows this company.

    I made a measly $0.25/share shorting this turkey today. However, I will be lurking in the wings to pounce on this puff job.

    Have a nice weekend all you pie-in-sky longs.

    • At last, someone talking some sense around here. Thanks, Greenduke.

    • "C. They do not want the slightest chance that a newly built
      Palestinian country might be influenced by modern Israel
      and/or the western world which will help establish all its
      systems. Such a case will be a direct threat, in their opinion,
      towards the Islamic world which opposes western values."

      This is precisely why Israel should meet with
      Egypt, Jordan and the US to form a proposal
      to create a UN protectorate that would be the
      nascent Palestine. Advantages:
      1) It may be possible to form reasonable
      boundaries.
      2) "Trustee" countries would oversee initial
      Palestinian elections and governance.
      3) Large enough sums of money would be
      available to create a viable
      infrastructure for Palestine.
      4) Security walls would be more effective.
      5) Israel would be recognized as the
      actual peacemaker it is.

      On topic -- I do not envision Magal making
      a large and sustained climb until
      some recognized boundaries are
      established. Without these,
      the fences themselves would be
      hated targets.

    • Tell it like it is !!!!!

    • And a very important remark:

      Out of the 4 reasons I gave for the Arab countries not wanting a Palestinian state to be built,

      Reasons A,B and D are fully true with regards to Arafat himself, and reason C is partially true as well (he wants a state, but doesn't want western influence. In his eyes he sees a state from the meditarannian sea to Iraq, eliminating Israel and Jordan, as I mentioned before).

    • Excellent post!! Thank you.

      Very correctly, you've noticed Saudi Arabia's true intentions. Saudi Arabia is one of the three most dangerous countries to the western world. The other two are Iran and Iraq. No. 4 on the list is Syria. Bush is very mistaken to mention Iran and Iraq but to totally neglect Saudi and Syria. He is trying to hide the truth about Saudi and Syria from the world, due to different reasons (Saudi - oil, Syria - preventing a wider war in the region).

      The Arab countries have an enormous interest in keeping the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on a continuous high flame.

      This is due to the following:

      A. They want the destruction of Israel and any violence against Israel is always blessed.

      B. The Palestinian population's grief is their main weapon in terms of diverting their own population's anger and criticism away from their wealthy and relatively educated leaders. As long as Israel is the "small devil" and the US is the "big devil" the local population doesn't try to point their arrows of criticism towards their own leaders. Less questions are asked and less answers are required.

      C. They do not want the slightest chance that a newly built Palestinian country might be influenced by modern Israel and/or the western world which will help establish all its systems. Such a case will be a direct threat, in their opinion, towards the Islamic world which opposes western values.

      D. (short-term reason) As long as the flames are high over here, the probability of the west attacking Saddam Hussein is very low.
      Every support for the Palestinians now is also indirect protection for Saddam Hussein's regime.

      PS,

      Nice jump for MAGS on Friday, ha?
      IMHO this is only the beginning!

    • Thank you for this thoughtful post.

    • If you read more than one page you wouldn't have jumped to a such a ridiculous conclusion. Read about all these products in their line.

      http://www.magal-ssl.com/pages/products.asp

      If you are still inclined to short, that's fine with me. If you only made a measly 25 cents shorting this stock today, you already know you had to cover in a hurry and that you were lucky. In fact all shorts are welcome. The more there are, the better it is for the longs. They all represent future buy orders to cover their position. The stock has already absorbed their short sales and it is at an all time high. You are a reservoir of buy orders waiting to stampede over each other trying to get out at higher and higher prices.

      All you can do at this point is to try to cast doubt about their products. You can also try to insult the judgment of the longs who are making money. If that doesn't work you can try writing all in caps, like this, HAAAAAAHAAAAAAHAHAAHAHAAA. If that doesn't work you can try spewing filth and writing dirty words. (That may not work so well because we already have a resident Arab anti-semite who can out curse almost anybody. But feel free to try.) Be sure to post lots of times so some really big portfolio manager will be impressed with your intelligent research and sell his position. Welcome, I've been waiting for you to show up. Now that I know you are here I can put you on IGNORE to join the arab.

      • blah, blah, blah, blah.

        I went to your stupid link, and all I saw was blah, blah, blah ..."taut-wire", blah blah, blah "cable" something or other, blah, blah, blah ..."taut-wire".

        I have not seen such an emotional bunch of stock groupies since the whining, wimpering days after Iomega crashed.

        Look, even INVN is coming down ... and there is actually a real demand for their products. MAGS is a nothing stock.

        The only reason you fools don't trade INVN is because it's too expensive for you little boys. Keep sucking those thumbs as this TURD falls of its own weight.

        Your emotional post-below is further evidence that you and all the other longs on this board are a bunch of emotional investors who will hold this stock as it sinks lower and lower.

        All the longs on this board probably bought MAGS in December at $13 or $14 and have been too afraid to cut your losses, all the while hoping and praying MAGS goes back up so you can get out. Well, if you didn't get today, I think you missed your window .... keep hoping and praying.
