Amazing. This company's continued existence is testimony to why people should never be allowed to invest their own Social Security money; half of American will be sitting on curbs eating cans of dogfood when they are 65 if they are allowed to invest. I just stumbled on this and cannot believe it. Where is Krusos??
There is no doubt that if they can begin to generate revenue streams by helping their customers "monetize" the "golden moment" of when they activate service, where there is the 100% focus by the customer, they will have established a new "arm" to their business.
Another $.11 in returns from EVOL. The gift that keeps on giving over the years. They are fairly even with regard to revenues and expenses which involve UK, Euro and Franc, so should not suffer any large exchange rate issues. They did about 16% of their 2015 revenues in UK, but again, since their services tend to cater to "downscale" phones, not sure economic "softness" would be a headwind...so if the stock gets dragged down over the next few weeks by the "Brexit" and U.S. Political uncertainties, I would view it as a buying opportunity.
All of the "sucker" boiler-rooms are combing that list right now, as people put their address, e-mail etc. They are especially interested in the turkeys who bought large amounts at under $.50 once it was basically known they would file Chapter 11, as they are the biggest rubes of all and are gullible enough (and have some $$).
I would be embarrassed to have my name on that list, but at least if it was for a buy price over $3 you could say that they were investing in a company; but those maroons who bought under $.50...only one name for them...SUCKERS.
There is no doubt that the price is extremely attractive and the risk/reward is highly favorable; however, I have to keep my fingers from reaching for the keyboard as I already own more of this than is really prudent for the kind of allocations I have in my portfolio. I am not in any hurry and believe that if they can double their top line in 5 years (15% p.a. growth) they can QUADRUPLE their bottom line (or even better) due to the enormous leverage in their model and their high gross margins. I do think it will take till Q3 till the YOY comps look better.
You must be a bag holder with a brown bag full of VRX certificates. Karen Finerman is an excellent money manager and has made a lot more for her investors than Ackman!!
Those talking about net worth don't have a clue. It is all pumped up air called goodwill and intangibles. You can't pay off a bank with "goodwill".
It has been several years since I have seen such a vicious attack on a hedge fund, but Mr. Ackman has invited this with his theatrics and also the size of these two positions relative to his entire fund. They have it in for him and will continue to drive Herbalife up, Valeant down (and if you are smart you will get the 13F-HR and find out what other stocks will go against him in the next week or two!!) fwiw
AND it will be good for shareholders who are long-term investors and will pay off in 2018, 2019 and 2020 with new drugs in their pipeline and a diversified product so all of the bagholders here can quite yammering about Zika and run on to the next hot thing; may you should go to InCloud again?? Time to push that pos up the hill once more since they have wrung out the last batch of suckers.
GM is doing a lot right. Check out the new Cadillac CT6. Cutting-edge technology in every direction and getting great reviews. Now if it stays glued together well they will begin to regain some cred in the luxo market and set up for their true flagship coming in 2018.
They will have a REAL car and deliver it a year before Elon shoves the first one out the door and declares they are actually "selling" cars.
It is highly likely that the Model 3's range will be very similar to the Bolt unless you "upgrade" to the next higher powerpack for an additional $7,000 (for you today only!!) Musk may get away with upticketing on the S and X, but when he starts playing in the mass market people won't fall for paying $7G for a longer-range battery on a $30k car.
GM is going full bore on its Bolt program. Car will be AVAILABLE in Jan-March, 2017 (already exists and is being tested). Over 200 mile range. Price under $35,000 and to support their EV programs, GM will install charging stations at over 3,000 dealers by the end of 2018 out of their 4300 dealers nationwaide.
ALL OF THE ABOVE IS BASED ON VARIOUS ARTICLES AND RUMORS ABOUT THE NEW CHEVY BOLT EV PROGRAM.
and not even worth as much as the lighter if you own 1,000 shares ; )
Featured story tonight. Retailers cannot contain Amazon disruption; hotels are running soft occupancy % due to Airbnb and Yellow Cabs are being hurt by Uber. There is not stopping the coming waves and those who dare to step in front of them will get deservedly drowned.
Dead, goodbye, so long; losers here.
