Seems to me you get constantly confused with the difference between a company with "solid" fundamentals and company with "attractive" fundamentals to support fast share price rise.
Don't get me wrong in last five years VG outperformed broad market four times so there is no reason to be upset. VG still has potential as a company with stable fundamentals and potential for top and bottom growth but what you demand is not what Mr.Market is willing to deliver so why not keep your mouth closed.It may even help a little if/when you find humility to admitt that.
"These aren't Fundamentals, Jasiop?"
These are YOUR fundamentals. Every shareholder should be interested in Market's view of who's fundamentals match share price.Definately not yours.
To help you realize deep illusion surrounding yourself let me remind you about period of time when fundamentals did not matter as much.Few years ago EGHT and VG followed identical cycle of share price.From $.3 to $5.4 and then fundamentals took over. Do you ever ask yourself how come i have been so disconnected from market's judgement since.
It is obvious to me you have no idea what market's conscience is because if you did you wouldn't have been under water with your last VG purchase.
I encourage you to honestly anayze your emotional state when making subjective statements as well as dig deep into statistical data suggesting that those with strong belief systems are usually "legends in their own mind".
Finally figured it out.The problem is not with you per say but with part of your body called mouth.
Most of the time it opens up VG share price drops.
It is not enough to understand the way stock market works but the way your brain works and correlation between the two.
Based on your recent posts it is safe to assume that you are focused on what may or may not be important at this point but there is a reason behind your concern.More you think about it more critical it becomes in your mind if in fact share price stays flat or goes down.
Important share price inflection points are created during extreme fear environment or emotional exhaustion.
Lack of interest to engage in mb conversations may be one of many indicators that helps Mr.Market to determine what to do next.
CCJ underperforming UUUU for 1,3 and 6 month period.Why is it important?
Because we are maybe in different secular trend called bull.
What's interesting is that TWLO has more than three times average trading volume with less than 10% of VG shares oustanding.This is rare phenomenon which means 1/3 of total float is changing hands everyday.
Potential for extreme volatylity.
Is this a technical testing of secular bear bottom share price taking price, W formation in the making or not?
And if the answer is yes then current price offers best entry level since 2004. If the answer is not then dollar cost averaging is the solution.
What i'm looking at is the similar situation what happened to Sears stock at the end of housing bubble in 2007 where land value contributed to incredible stock price appreciation. As long as TWLO belongs to momentum stocks VG share price should benefit.
"Overall market atmosphere is not great"
You may be correct on everything else but general market conditions are opposite than you believe.
Chinese market is in early stages of another cyclical bull and US market will close above 10% this year.
The same principle applies to your relationship with stock market and results are different for everybody.
For example almost everybody expected broad US market to go down right after "Brexit".
Initially this is what happened but as we know now only handful of shorts made money because they knew they were making investing decisions based on imperfect knowledge of the market.
You can judge anybody if you wish but without having full and objective knowledge about circumstances surrounding decision making process your verdict doesn't represent true picture. Takes time to learn details.
I can tell you my view based on ideals i attempt to live by and years of research that Jimmy Carter and George Soros are great people even though they are on opposite sides of public opinion. Depending what kind of ideals you subscribe to this is the glass how you are going to see the world through.
I suspect any other democratic president would't be able to make you happy either. Judging legacy of any leader takes time,sometimes more than one generation.
