    Insider Buying

    What do you make of it? I've watched this company/stock for a couple of years now, waiting for a possible entry point. I know some folks here have strong opinions, but what I'm trying to determine is whether this may be a good time to get in (long). Thoughts?

    • I'm just an old fashioned investor who is hung up on FACTS.

      DUH'Marco made 4 open market purchases in December totaling 53,625 shares. In isolation, those lots are UP about 6 cents as of Friday's close.

      His total position comprises 24 lots (205,504 shares) with the earliest lot date of Feb 2004. His total position has produced an UNREALIZED LOSS of just under SEVEN HUNDRED THOUSAND dollars (that's -$3.40/sh or 42% of the investment). The only thing worse is his 97% destruction of bagholder value during his 9 year reign of terror. Where would a retail investor be if they had mirrored each of his trades?

      Folks shouldn't make any presumptions about insider buying. That's generally considered positive, but there's no "one-size-fits all". Rather, look at the FACTS for the full story.

      Upon any announcement that DUH'Marco is OUT, I'm in. Until then, it's caveat emptor.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • The best time to buy is when it is at AN ALL-TIME demarco LOW. Then buy what you can afford to lose. Because remember, kratos is run by demarco, the mismanagement team, carano, and the very weak board and it can always, and has, gone DOWN further. Then when it goes up above your basis about 1 dollar, SELL, SELL, SELL. Then repeat if you have the stomach for mismanagement teams like demarco, the mismanagement team, carano, and the very weak board . BUT DO NOT GO LONG TOOOOOOOOOO LONG or you will end up like the rest of us long time demarco BAGHOLDERS.
