Continue buying below $68 and stop worrying about the shorts
Mildly disappointing Q4, but I think they will leverage last year's investments into 2014. I would take every opportunity to buy below $68 this year. IPG has a very good story overall, but I think the most compelling thing is the cash and market cap growth. FCF will likely be over $200 million this year and should continue to accelerate. I doubt this is the year, but at some point there will be significant buybacks or dividends which will make the PPS soar. Also, their market cap is licking the bottom of the large cap indexes so if they get bumped up to say the S&P 500, more money will flow in. Either of these events will take out the shorts eventually, but until then I'd like to personally thank them for giving me cheap buying opportunities.
2014 is going to be a great year for "IPGP" You can tell from the tone of the call that,
they are very upbeat about the year!! The shorts are going to get burned, and do us
a favor, & add to the upside of IPG!!!
