I mean it's nice that with your bloated staff count and recent company acquisitions that you have time to analysis which states tweet about how much they like or hate their job but what people really want is an increase in revenue & profit and all new C level execs. Also nobody that has ever worked at Symbol EVER to be employed by the company.
Can we focus up people?
2015 - 666.9M in rev - 657.8M in exp - 9.1M in profit - 32.8M in restructure
2014 - 725.6M in rev - 735.8M in exp - (-10.2M) - 325.8M in good will write off (a type of restructure)
2013 - 763.9M in rev - 746.2M in exp - 17.7M in profit - 20.0M in restructure
2012 - 843.9M in rev - 828.2M in exp - 15.7M in profit - 40.0M in restructure
This is why the company is worth $0. They made some money from selling Korea and had some cash in the bank but they spent all of that and more on buybacks and companies. This year it'll be more of the same.
Tick tock tim and steve-o you guys can't fix this thing.
Somebody is testing lows.
I think people are finally giving up on the beast and we might see $1.xx sooner than even I thought.
How's that quarter close going - how far from goal are you?
Going to need some specific (BAD) news for Monster which you may not get until the earnings release in about a month. Likely to trade at this range until then - with maybe a little up tick since it sold off.
But if Q2 numbers are bad as expected and guidance is again lowered for the second half of the year - you know not 5% positive growth then yes the $2 barrier will be broken.
The market cap is almost less than $200M - Sal and Tim have bought $800M in stock since their hostile take over but who's counting. Linkedin is selling for over 125x what Monster is worth. Good news?
People will stop saying Linkedin will buy Monster (maybe they'll say Microsoft which is even dumber.)
We won't be able to compare them to Linkedin anymore - $3.5B in revenue versus $600M.
Tim and Steveo won't be around much longer.
Dice is only worth 50% more than Monster.
Next quarter is 2 years of the reign of Tim and Stevo. But today is yet another record both for intraday and close (I'm guessing unless Tim reads this and starts buying stock which I don't think he is allowed to this close to the quarter's close - you know black out period.)
I think they reset expectations again you know you got to drop before you pop or maybe reallocate to accelerate 2. We are going to touch $1.xx very, very, very soon.
Nearly two years in and I'm sure Tim will say the company is in a far better position than it was when he took over, not that it was in a bad position because Sal and team (which included Tim since he was CFO, advisor, board member, and part of the getting paid posse aka Symbol Mafia) made it better every year.
No brand, no money, no growth, no CHARISMA, no leadership, no products, no hope. Let's break out the purple surrender flags and waive them proudly.
Bravo Tim and Stevo BRAVO!
All time low close - check.
Intra day low - miss off by 4 cents.
Tim and Steve the company is not in a better every single day that you are in charge. It's time to retire fellows.
Take this chance to bail - blame it on Brexit, the economy, Sal, whomever or whatever - your RSU's are still worth MILLIONS if you stay in charge that won't be the case.
If you retire the stock will pop at least 10%. If you don't name Stevo as you successor it'll pop another 5-10%.
You are not a CEO, you are a bean counting introvert. Monster had over 50% of the market when the symbol mafia took over now you have
Not a good sign to be this low towards the end of the quarter. What kind of creative PNL stuff are you going to do this quarter Tim instead of talking to congress or a news outlet or traveling to EU or somewhere to talk to the troops like a REAL CEO would do?
Future pro forma cash EBITDARS earnings before interest taxes depreciation amortization and random stuff?
You have 1M shares - that will be worth nothing if you continue to be in charge. You and STEVO are not C level execs and if you don't see that by now you are worse than SAL. RETIRE.
"I would have paid $300 a share" because I over pay for everything and think everything is worth more than it is.
MS is really on the downslide though as the company has nothing to do with their core business. It's likely to compete against facebook so expect them to try and turn it into that and in a few years it'll be like Nokia. I don't see how this helps Monster before they die though.
Go to google trends.
Type in Monster sucks - notice the steady increase since Sal and the Symbol Mafia took over.
Type in Monster.com - notice the steady decline especially after they stopped spending on the brand after 2010 merger with Hotjobs.
Monster jobs - downward trend.
Sal Iannuzzi - flatline from 2008 on.
Timothy yates - same.
spg - steady upward growth
What great trends with Monster can you find.
According to the bookings numbers given new products went from 37M last year this time to 51M a growth rate of only 37.8% It's slowing pretty fast - I think as a whole Linkedin is still growing at this rate year of year with OVER 3B that's with a big B in revenue this year.
an old post with additional data.....
YoY 2014 - 2015 it grew from 2.8% ($5.1M) to 5.0% ($8.6M) or 69% delta $3.5M
YoY 2015 - 2016 it grew from 5.0% ($8.6M) to 8.1% ($12.8M) or 49% delta $4.2M
% wise it grew 2.2 in 15 and 3.1 in 16 but that's because total revenue went down. 2 Years into the big plan and it's already starting to slow.....guess they'll have to modify this slide next time or decide not to show it. At first glance this looked good but again when you dig in it doesn't.
Quarter - rev - new product rev - % - new product rev delta
q1/14 - 180.4 - 2.8% - 5.1
q2/14 - 183.7 - 3.3% - 6.1 - 1.0
q3/14 - 179.6 - 3.5% - 6.3 - 0.2
q4/14 - 175.3 - 4.1% - 7.2 - 0.9
q1/15 - 172.8 - 5.0% - 8.6 - 1.4
q2/15 - 167.7 - 5.6% - 9.4 - 0.8
q3/15 - 167.1 - 6.2% - 10.4 - 1.0
q4/15 - 159.2 - 7.1% - 11.3 - 0.9
q1/16 - 157.8 - 8.1% - 12.8 - 1.5
So Q1 is a good quarter for new products but last year it grew 1.4M and this year it's 1.5M I wouldn't say that's going to save this company. It just looks better with the drop in overall revenue but it's not growing fast enough to make a difference. EU is likely to see some head winds this year so the only bright spot will dim.
