Perhaps the reason for the move-up in earnings is
that there will be an announcement of a buyout by
another company and the market price is getting very
close to the buyout price. They don't want to risk a
pre-earnings run-up and end up announcing being bought out at
little or no premium... Nothing we hate more than a
buyout with no premium!
Just a thought.
Motley Fool April 15 article (1/2 way down page)
2nd qtr. earnings @ .14 and 1st qtr. @
If you project this aggregate of .21 as an average
over 4 qtrs., the total is .42 .
Now, to account
for the recent 3 way split, divide .42 by 3
the result is .14 as an annual earnings run
Divide current share price of approx. $38 by .14 and the
result is the current p/e ratio of 271. Pre-split, share
of $114 divided by earnings of .42 =271. The p/e
constant if both the annual earnings
projection and share price
are divided by 3.
First call did not lower estimates to .03 cents,
they adjusted it for the 3:1 split, has anyone worked
out the new P?E numbers based on the split
I could swear that AMTD was trading at just over
100 x earnings last week prior to the split.
you are in my humble opionion pretty close, but I
do like your guess of 50, If I could predict the
future I would say 47 would be a fair call, NDB and EGRP
are very good trades, with EGRP's problems this past
week, it will not take long for this to be figured into
the price and it is a great buying opportunity, in
time, problems seem to be forgotten, unless it is
posted a year from now by one of the gloom and doom
people that are set in making a stock look bad, I would
like to add to my last post that when daytrading, if
one sticks with great comapnies like
AMTD,DIR,EGRP,CGMI,ect... and stay away from total hype on stocks say .07
cents a share theres not much gamble to it other than
the normal risks one takes in the long term, for what
ever it's worth, I wouldn't throw money at this stock
if I didn't think it would stick and grow, I have
found that buying on the dips and selling on the highs
work wonders when it comes to paying the bills, Im in
at an average of 38.25 and I havent gone through an
anxiety attack yet this weekend, this stock will move
up...and yes most likely at least to 47 this coming
There are mazing consistencies on all the boards.
When a stock is down for 2 days thae sgorts come out
in force. Everyone is right and everyone is
1. Reality - AMTD is profitable, as is NDB etc.
however NDB floats 10 MM shares.
2. It is
summertime, the traders all leave after 11:00 edt to head to
the Hamptons for the weekend, hence there is a mjor
slow down in volume on Friday afternoons. Market
prices become very unstable and bounce wildly on low
volume because of it.
3. This stock was
definitely being controlled by MM on Friday afternoon.
Someone could have come in and bought 1 MM shares and the
price would have stayed below 39.
4. The person
that said price will go up prior to SPO is right. Why
do an SPO if you can't get the price you want? I see
price between 45 - 50 at time of SPO.
5. CPI and
PPI will continue to be benign next week.
Has anyone else noticed that the only INET sector
that hasn't moved has been the OLB's?
Last week I bought PSIX and SFE and both were
looking good and one afternoon 30 minutes before the
market closed, they all tank for 4 - 5 points because of
out of RS2000 and added into RS1000.
The next day
they all came back up and today they both closed up
over 10 points already since out of the RS2000 without
I hope this is the reason for the
AMTD but you are right about the fund manager's

Good night everybody. Hope your weekend is starting
off as well as mine just did. (And I'm not talking
about the mysteries of the universe that Spock just
shared with me, either.)
