Eskimo...I respect your due diligence on this...In late 2014/early 2015 my analysis and exposure/ownership in NPTN showed many parallels between NPTN then and ACLS now...NPTN moved from 2.50-3.00 up to more than $10 and eventually $14 -- granted I liquidated from about $5 to $11 -- it was a 3-bagger for me. These are rare I know, but I think this is set up for a potentially pretty big move. Eskimo, is there a discreet way for us to communicate off this board?? Thanks
Bought a bit more near today's lows, equivalent of 2.43 pre-split, expect $11-$12 within next month or so.
The down path was long and more severe than I expected, now that we're turning I would expect mo-mo and institutional buying to be consistent and continue well above $16 over time...could be quickly, I'd suggest buying dips (I will be)
I'm only reading this in bits and pieces...so I'm not even sure how this comment will be taken. But why is this all about taking the high moral ground...it's just about us (humans) making silly (but, to us, important) bets with our hard earned dollars on (irrelevant, short-term) price movements...should all pets: goldfish, dogs, cats, horses, whatever be expected to be placed in their 'perfect environment'? Aren't there thousands of domestic animals (and children, for that matter) in horrible environments with (some) horrible owners (probably a 'politically incorrect' term: 'owner')
Seems to me, these animals cannot and should not be returned to the wild, obviously.
Seems like SEAS is dealing as best it can in the CURRENT circumstances.
I am confident this stock will be $16+ and will not (in the next 2 years) be below $13.
So...I'm saying, from an investment scenario, we may be 8% down from here (worst case) and WILL be up 21% (plus w divvy another 6-12%) So a likely gain of 30% from these levels in
Private Equity, Management, or a competing Amusement Company can Unlock Value.
At this price, I see a compelling argument that SEAS could SOON see a buyout at or near $20.
The valuation per park is at unseen and unreasonably LOW valuation.
Disclosure: Longer today buy about 2600 more shares, at 13.60-ish, Total long 8500 avg cost $15ish
Underwater in SEAS ;-) for now
Brexit may influence the averages, but I think we're on the verge of company specific positives that, if there's a dip it will be short lived...eyes on 8/2 eps and guidance, thinking there's a sizable upward move...feeling guidance will be the LONG anticipated positive up...and, though technically mostly irrelevant, the reverse split may put ACLS on more institutional radar AND analyst coverage, in about a week. Long almost 60,000 shares, and dry powder if needed. Good luck to all! (also buying SEAS, Seaworld...and XON, Intrexon, might be worth a look) I appreciate shared opinions and ideas, pros and cons.
Not sure how to interpret your statement? Are you implying they ARE or ARE NOT? (better than AMAT's offerings)
Plenty of positive signals. Surprised we're not above $3 yet...great, keep accumulating says me. Long almost 50,000 shares ready for the move coming, up I hope and expect. Reverse slit and then high teens soon. Thoughts? Pros and Cons welcome...quiet here on the board...
I believe we'll climb back to the $19 neighborhood...picked up calls yesterday and went long recently as high as 16.50...this moves in trends. Timing and some luck is all you need. Opinions forward from this price? (As an investment, btw, not as a philosophical view on whales in captivity)
Some stuff in their pipeline, they need a 'winner' - but I got crushed - I gambled more than I should have, in retrospect...damn
Holding almost all for a hopeful future...I need to look at the balance sheet and burn rate...Mr. Kirk lost a bunch for now...but only a drop in HIS bucket, lol
And you'll want plenty when it turns into a $12+ stock in about 3 weeks.
The reverse split has no material effect on market cap, but the institutional appeal AND coverage with forthcoming BUY recommendations will possibly take us into the mid to high teens, in my opinion.
Price before end of year could easily be $16-$20 (equivalent of $4-$5)
I'd suggest acquiring up to $3.25, better to do it now, prior to the forthcoming good news that should be expected. JMHO do your own DD and GLTA!
