Instead of just posting our complaints on this message board, which hardly anybody reads anyways, take a minute and let management know your thoughts. Here's a couple of email address': email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org Send something as simple as " Gooch and Lively must go because they are out of touch with reality". It's so easy to do something like this and yes it does get to the top believe it or not.
Why all the complaining now? where was all of the dissent at the investors meeting? 2011 was bad, 2012 is horrific but the investors still voted Gooch & Co. in for another year. I totally agree that Gooch & the B.O.D. has failed this company but I also feel alot of you guys are screaming fire after the house has already burnt down! Make your voices heard when it counts and not after the fact
One has to remember that individual investors have little to absolutely zero pull and influence. Look at who actually holds the majority of shares and you'll see who matters - institutional holdings constitute the overwhelming majority of holdings.
Individual shareholders who hold a few shares to a few thousand or even 100,000 shares are of no consequence to the BOD. If they cared, they wouldn't have repeated the stupidity with Gooch.
