I'm new to investing in stocks. I just bought a
few shares of VTSS after reading its recommendation
in Money magazine & checking out Zack's report. I
wonder if I should hold on to this stock ? Any ideas ?
Yes to the 1st question, and peanuts to the 2nd
question After all VTSS built a state of the art fab in
the springs and that
expense did not affect
forcasted earnings, this acheivement is
unheared of in
the industry,The greedy top guns at VTSS take care of
the sharholders and them selves. If you know the
history of this company, from where they come to where we
all are today,
insiders deserve every $ they can
put in the bank.!!
Just love it when the insider sell! They deserve
it. Yes, I figure that putting in an extra 10 hours a
week warrants getting a seven figure bonus in
compensation. The poor insiders are indeed overworked and
deserve more. Contrary to scientific studies by leading
experts, excessive options are not dillutive to EPS. This
isn't a problem because I'm sure there are annual
grants of options to the insiders. They will always have
shares to exercise. What is most comforting is seeing
the soon to be single-digit percentage that insiders
hold with their company. Keep selling! It helps a lot!
This is NOT spam -- just a helpful suggestion.
There is a new stock website that has been on a
hotstreak. Take a look
Some great tips, and a sense of humor, too.
VTSS does depend on LU,TERDYNE and other
customers to developed
through partnership/ designs to
enhance the customer
application. LU has to go throgh
an extensive relationship
with a another vendor
and proved out the design and capability,before they
dump VTSS, their proven provider. SEEKING others
vendors is a way of survial in the tech industry, cost,
design capability and on time delivery are also strong
must's to be the vendor. IT's not like selecting a loaf
of bread off the shelve for LU to put in to their
equipment, DOOMED can be used
for both the vendor and the
supplier when neither keeps up with the latest technology.
I thought your message was shallow and guessing ?
I have always read that insider buying is the
only meaningful sign you can get from insider
transactions. In particular, if an executive who already
receives stock options actually buy shares you can bet he
believes the company will perform well going
BTW, those who have really researched this company
know that it nearly closed its doors several times in
the late 80's and early 90's and, in fact, I believe
I remember reading about pay cuts. I have no
problem with insiders now reaping some gains for
sacrifices made when VTSS was unloved although I would admit
that the amount of stock options some execs (not
necessarily VTSS) receive is a little execessive and long
term dilutive to EPS. Also, if you wait and exercise
all options within one tax year, the tax consequences
could be extreme.
Good point! It seems like most insiders are
always selling anyhow!! That what you really EXPECT!
They ususally consider this as part of their
compensation! I always find it very difficult to glean any
MEANINGFULL info from the insider activiity...since the
predominant activity is always SELLING!!
In this political setting, I can see someone
What insidious thoughts.
these insiders wasn't doing a superb job, then what
their options be worth?
dedication and tedious work to the company,I have
appreciably well. I have been long since 95, not a
Good Luck to all/
Employees in tech companies typically work lots
of hours and are compensated with a combination of
salary and stock options. Tech stocks tend to be
volitile and vtss is no exception.
employees/executives to be considered greedy for exercising some of
their options? Should they save them for the long term?
Imagine when they leave the company and they are suddenly
faced with all these options that now expire in a few
months. What a tax bite that can be... And imagine they
leave when the stock price is down and now their
options are worthless...
Think again before you
call anyone greedy for simply selling some of their
options that are part of their compensation.
