It looks like this company is either going to nationalized or...
either the government will buy it out and take off the exchange for an incredibley low price (which of course cannot be below $1billion dollars.
the shares will sky rocket this year beyond the expectations of anyone who ever held this company in the past. I have a reason for these expections. For one, there is no way they made all of these acquisitions just to go bankrupt and fail
You do know that America doesn't nationalize failing defense-sector companies? Don't you?
If anybody offered your so called "incredibly low price" of USD 1 Billion, that would work out to be in excess of $17.50/sh. Don't hold your breath waiting for Kraptos to go up 280%! (chuckle)
As to your second scenario, Kratos has already FAILED. The CEO, DUH'Marco, has destroyed 97% of shareholder value - PLUS over 40% of his own open market investment - during his 9 year reign (of terror).
1 thing IS true. During the entire history of stock trading going all the way back to the Buttonwood Trees on Broad Street, NO INVESTOR has EVER lost money because a company bit off more than it could chew. NEVER! CAN'T happen!
Sorry guys. NOT the "scariest post ever," maybe the most common though. If you've invested in as many stocks as I have you'll eventually find some POS that has reached the point where the board members only hope is for some fantasy buyer to come and bail them out. NEVER happens though and usually ends in tears. I made my bet that EDM might care that he's considered a laughingstock and let shareholders make some money too. Right now that bet looks to be a loser though.
