I mean to www.mydiscountbroker.com, after I
learned about it from one SWS "spam" message (thanks to
the author) on AMTD message board. I think that SWS
is a great company, but they have problems in
marketing department. I was searching for the broker like
SWS (I need some of its features that Datek hasnt)
for several months (though not very actively) and I
saw information about etrade, ameri^#&%, suretrade,
waterhouse, accutrade and so on and so on, but I didnt even
see a word about www.mydiscountbroker.com. They
really need some advertising campaign.
SWS stock. Of course its not EGRP, but its certainly
better than AMTD, so I think it has big chances to catch
up with them. If tomorrow (or some other day) I will
see news that SWS plans some advertising campaign I
will buy as much SWS stock as I can. mydiscountbroker
needs to become brand name to be the true internet play
(and to have price around 70 or 100). I think it is
true to compare SWS/EGRP situation to BKS/AMZN. Barnes
and Noble is a great company, like SWS, but Amazon is
from another world.
So good luck longs (maybe
I'll become one of you soon) and keep up with the good
Get ready for a big jump up (at least 50%) in the
day of official announcement of the adverising
campaign on CNBC. No matter, will it be good campaign or
not, people will stand in line to buy SWS on that
news. After that jump, I think it will be time to sell
SWS (but if you are faithful hold it), because it
will be very hard for SWS to get any significant share
of the online trading market. In order to do that
SWS needs to become a leader, but it seems that SWS
wants to be just a good old company, and now its time
for agressive (and sometimes bad, like in case of
P.S. I will not become a SWS
customer, because they dont allow foreigners like me to
trade on margin (strange policy in my point of view).
That is a basic example why Datek is the choice of the
P.P.S Go SWS (and please allow
me to have a margin account at mydiscountbroker.com
Good words, zavaidoc. I'm off to post on the
Motley Fool board. If anyone is a member at Silicon
Investor (www.techstocks.com) it would be nice if we could
get some posts there. And don't forget the boards in
both places devoted to discount brokers. Anyone with
good experiences trading with SWS, especially on
high-volume days, should post there, as there have been a lot
of complaints about other brokers lately. These
boards don't like hype and spam, though; good factual
posts are appreciated.
is to get this message across boards and spread
the word out. If SWS remains virtually unknown,
chances are we are not going to benefit (or benefit too
little) from these great fundamentals and potential. I
urged here before all longs to actively present SWS to
people on other boards. You might do an excellent job by
posting your findings on many other boards - especially
on those of Internet and financial firms.
4Just making a very logical presentation on why
there are 2 EXTREMELY undervalued stocks in the online
SWS has a market cap of $326M with
1.90 earnings currently at a PE of 16, a
Price-to-Sales ratio of 1.1 on $293M in sales. 10.7M o/s shares
and float of 7.7M. No short position as of Dec. 8.
Book value of $13. WOW!!!!!
Compare that to
EGRP, AMTD OR NITE!!
NDB has a market cap of
$298M with .84 earnings currently at a PE of 26, a
price-to-sales ratio of 1.9 on $165M in sales. 14M o/s shares
and a float of 4.2M. Only 6k share short position. $8
book value. WOW!!!!!
Compare that to EGRP, AMTD
Here are the
EGRP: market cap = 5.4 billion, earnings = -.38, pe =
n/a, price to sales ratio = 17 on $279M in sales,
shares o/s = 56.8 M, float = 43.7M, shares short = 7.6M,
book value = $12.
AMTD: market cap = 1.6
billion, earnings = .01, pe = 5900, price to sales ratio =
10.5 on $164M in sales, o/s shares = 29M, float = 7M,
1.76M shares short, book value = $2.91
market cap = 2.5 billion, earnings = .94, PE = 57, price
to sales ratio = 8 on $303 million, o/s shares =
49.1M, float = 10M, 772k shares short, book value of
This whole sector has been soaring but it is only a
matter of time before NDB and SWS catch up. They are
EXTREMELY undervalued from every angle relative to the
leaders. Based on the above valuations, these stocks are
an easy double or triple IMO when valuations catch
up. Best of luck to everybody.
I have been hearing a lot about nite..mentioned
in forbes a few mos. back. Bought today at the lows
and sold at the high since the run up was too huge
and i didn't think it would hold.
Now thinking of
sws. I know nite is a clearing house for the online
brokers. Is sws the same? Or do they offer online trading?
Never heard of them but will see if they are mentioned
When are earnings due out for sws? someone in a
previous post said they have marketing problems. can
