Looking through the technical charts for the last
four years. THQ is looking very undervalued. This
time, IMO, next month will see THQ's stock price assend
to new highs. The 50/100/200 DMA price will make a
sharp increase from $18/$20.5/$23 to $21/$25/$28. The
premium price paid for the stock should be at least $34
at that time, with Q1 results expected to be bigger
and brighter than Q1 98 by say 20%, we may even see
THQ assend into the $40's or (do I dare say it?) the
$50's. Things to consider are, a possibility of another
split, and pressure from a suiter to attain stock, both
positive IMO for the stock price. Undoubtabally the
markets make fools out of all of us, and who knows what
the future holds? Hope the short interest increases
and we get another opportunity to increase my
Message to shorts: THQ's ready to
freefall. Cash up all that you can lay your hand on, make
monster profits. Sell at $28, cover at $5. Money for Jam.

Warren Buffett, one of the greatest investor,

I guess a
Billionaire who has made his money in the stock market knows
something about investing. He is not jumping in and out of
his top stocks. Do your own home work and do not take
tips or rumors on chat boards. There are people who

Where did you get those figures? We can't even
find official sales results for the individual games
and you already have revenue percentages. That means
that all of the other games combined contribute only
10%. VERRRRRRY INTERESTING!
Folks don't forget
THQ announced last week they are running a
mulit-million dollar ad campaign for Rugrats during the
Christmas shopping season, surely that should boost sales
as we get closer to Christmas.
Of course here
in the Atlanta area it has been in the high 70
degrees and it just doesn't seem like Christmas. Buying a
Christmas tree while wearing shorts, t-shirt and sandals
just doesn't seem right unless you live where you do
that all the time. I don't even have the desire to go
Christmas shopping because of the warm weather.
well, happy Monday everyone.
lobsterboy you type pretty good for someone using claws.
Unfortunately, 90% of revenue is coming from
You know what happened last time this occurred?
Oh,and has THQ mentioned how they will replace the
revenue they'll lose to JAKK's? I just don't see it.
Longs,with a PE of 30,you should be the worried
That's the most comprehensive set of
channel checks I've ever seen! It gives me great comfort
with this investment. A huge thank you for all of your
time and effort. We are lucky to have you as a
contributor. I'll post on AOL. (If someone's a SI member, you
might post Bill's CCs there since I'm sure those folks
would be interested in this font of data. I'll e-mail
it to Marc4lit since I know he's got an SI
Thanks for the channel checks chetmorton and
others. Keep them coming.
Also, I agree with
Gooddigger: Paddled/Superior -- time to mortgage the farm and
bet that half million dollar fortune you got when you
turned 13. Let it ride against THQ. Mister Vegas. You'll
soon be richer than Gates. Go for it! Disregard the
channel checks. They're meaningless, and who would buy
Rugrats and Revenge, right Superior? Besides, what do you
need channel checks for, you got stochastics and your
"program." Remember, always stick with a program that
Superior Paddled, this is prime time to really max out
your short position in THQ. A video game retailer that
can't manage to sell games during the Christmas season
is in one heck of a lot of trouble. Plus, look at
the long term. This company had the fool idea that
wrestling would sell in the future, so they signed a
10-year contract for WWF games. Hahahahahahahahahahaha!
You'd better load up on the short side now before it
gaps down 4-5 points on Tuesday's open. Heck, we'll
soon have a 12 mos. trailing P/E of what, 14?
Astronomical! What, do investors think this is an internut
company? Get in; get short. The time is now. Don't wait.
You might miss the opportunity of a lifetime. You can
thank me later.
First I would like to say I'm sorry for not
responding to TSelzer and fishin_1 for there questions they
had for me a couple og weeks ago, wanted to wait to
post until after I had a chance to add something to
the board. Took me alittle longer than I thought to
get my channel checks done. As I agree with both of
you that my wholesale prices were high on the PSX
games and low on some of the Gameboy titles, but most
older gameboy titles are selling for 19.95, and am I
right in using about 50% per title? With new games
about 29.95? As for the 2.5mil off the top for taxes I
believe BF said this was for earlier tax pervisions do to
losses. (I may be wrong on the reason but I think that's
what it's for.)
Now for the channel checks... This
we'll be long so bare with me.

people were not very helpful here. But did say Revenge
was selling very well as was Rugrats PSX,GB. Also
Bugs was moving. Could not get any numbers.

trying to keep track also. I would be greatful if you
