Business analysts stated today that all security
related firms will have great profits this quarter due to
excessive global demand for security. Some firms are
charging 50-100% more for their Y2K contracts.
With all this banter about the Wackenhut company
I couldnt help but comment. I purchased Wackenhut
WHC strictly because of contact with Wack employees
at a Job site on which I was the site designer.
These Wack employees were from the security company and
I purchased prison because of the potential
volitility of that industry. I have bought and sold and have
made money. Currently Im in at 15 and 12. Regardless,
the employees that I came into contact with were
happy and very , very specialized experts. Security
system designers for Foreign Embassies and securtiy
staff with super credentials and attitude; Very
specialized security - I cant imagine better credentials than
these guys had - special forces, etc. One would think
that this quality would be "in house" for prison
division also. (Yes I know special forces guys are not in
the prison guard system but a well run company is a
well run company.) Loooonnnngggg on WHC
BuyPanic,...excellent post, much of the volume
generated since December 21 has been due to the shorts
At the start of December there where 7% shorts
and now only 3% remain short, when this last group
cover their position will boost the stock
pass the $13 resistance.
And yes if Mr. Buff-etts
wishes to join in the carnage of the shorts, then let
the games begin if he has the "cojones".
but really, you keep saying how well you know
this company yet I have yet to hear you say anything
that would indicate that you really know very much
about either WHC or the industry in
You've been posting immature and angry posts long before
you were attacked, with nothing to say of any
Your posts go like this:
"How STUPID can you
"Piece of Crud"
"You are a
"$6 by January"
"You Idiots, $5 is
"NOBODY will buy it even at these prices"
really can't blame some others posting angry messages
back at you. You sure can dish it out but you don't
seem to take your own medicine too well.
comment of yours "Nobody will buy at these prices", was
posted 2 days ago when the stock was under $10. So your
wrong already since someone was buying the last 2 days
on high volume and the stock is now 11+11/16.
If your so certain the stock is going to $6 in
January, why not go short. You would get a huge gain if
your correct. If you were really an investor will any
money and were so sure of yourself you would have gone
short 2 days ago. Is that what you did? Or is it that
you have no money?
And if you really think you
know something about WHC lets hear it. Or get lost.
How do you do it? I mean how do you manage to buy
at the low like that? Wow!!!!
I don't work
for the DOC you fool. I am a computer tech. I
couldn't care less if whc fell off the face of the earth.
I just know the company and like to laugh at them
bc theyre so pathetic.
You guys crack me
up...."I made 20%" WOW!!!!
My port is up over 200%
this year ...get a clue. Buy some tech stocks if you
can understand them. Give up on this pig. WHC...I
maintain...worst company of the 21st century.
I worked for 32 years with the
Dept. of Corrections, retired and went to work for WHC
for 9 years and retired.
The nation wide
company policy is that they give their employees 9 paid
holidays a year. Pay raises are determined with the COLA
the states they contract with are willing to give.
Generally, the states are very generious when giving raises
to their corrections employees but not so when they
deal with the private sectors.
In Calif. the
DOC lied to the private sector for a number of years
by saying there was not enough money in the budget
to grant COLA adjustments to the contracts they had
with the private companys. They were taken to court on
the matter and lost big time. The courts said they
did not bargin in good faith and lied. Consequently,
they had to pay millions in damages.
writings I would surmise that you are an employee of some
state's DOC assigned in some capacity to a facility
operated by a private company. If that is the case then
you, would be a union member and like all union
members, are running scared of the possibility that the
private sector will eventually take over the supervison
and management of all inmates in your state because,
as you know they do the job just as well but at a
reduced cost. By the way, are you in Calif. If so, we may
know a lot of folks in common.
I work "with" them. I would shoot myself if I had
to work for them. They treat their employees like
crap, give 2% raises, dont give any holidays off, and
have the highest turnover of any co Iv ever known.
Make millions. Load up of WHC. AHAHHAAAAA
You've been holding this slug for years and
losing money while every 18 year old novice is making a
fortune in tech stocks. I'm not sure how I could be
taking it up the ass when WHC goes up 1 point since I
don't own any and never have...oh, and never will. I
just know the company (too well) and think it is the
worst run company I have ever seen. Buffett said buy
what you know. I know WHC and I wouldn't buy it with
YOUR money. I hope it goes to $100 and you all make
money. I couldn't care less. I just like to get you all
excited. Deep down, you know you own a dog...a dirty old
dog that couldn't even walk its way into the humane
society. WHC...I still maintain...will be one of the worst
stocks of the 21st century. AHAHAHAHAHAAAA
