Wonder why the sp is where it is at? I applaud the effort OJ is taking over on the SI board, but I wish he would take a look at what he posted. How confusing can calculating a take rate be? The number of cars containing the msc option divided by the total number of cars produced or to be more specific you use the same formula each model. Even though there have been a handful of 2016 s sedans reported with msc, dimtint posted that MB has listed msc to be a new option for the s sedan on the 2017 models and production did not begin until 6/21/2016 with initial orders not taking place until today according to the schedule also posted by dimtint. So if OJ is being conservative by using 80,000 s sedans produced annually, how can he use that number if production only began 6/21/2016 that now contains msc? I can see half that amount since production began after half the year is over. And now ND stated that profit will be in months........here we go again.
Whomever is running this show, whether it is Hitachi, RFI mgt. or BOD,they better get their head out of their behinds. For those of you that are a bit too young, go back and learn what led to the demise of the Betamax system vs. VHS back in the 70's.
Now we seem to be focusing on MB and their production numbers and well, perhaps it's the only game in town at this moment and well, it shouldn't be. Sunroofs are never where the money will be. I have repeated this over and over. Too many options available that may serve the same purpose, and cheaper. I have always focused on sun visors and side windows in the automotive sector along with commercial buildings in the architectural area.
All one has to do is look at what Continental had to say in regards to their launching of their "intelligent glass system". Although everyone is optimistic, it is still too "cost-intensive" at this time but are expecting "prices to drop quickly due to competing technologies" and "it doesn't matter which technology they use."
Cost continues to be the enemy and as long as Hitachi can control prices at the film production level..........Hello Betamax!
What do you expect? This is what happens:
when investors are misled
when management can't backup what they say
when management goes into hiding and no one steps up to take the wheel
when blame is passed around like a bowl of mashed potatoes at the dinner table
Supply and Demand, only one group is responsible and you refuse to accept it.
The market: Buyers and Sellers. Now provide proof those are shorted shares and not long shares for sale.
Oh, stop it. You're just as bad as they are. Yes, there is manipulation in this stock at times, but this is just plain lack of demand for supply. There is a reason for that lack of demand and when you admit those problems you will be taken more seriously.
Why go, to get a feeling about what is going on?
Just look at the share price and the trading volume to get a feeling about what is going on.
Look at the number of insider buys at a price where we are suppose to be at an inflection point/outperforming the market.
It's easy to say things when you hide behind that safe harbor disclosure.
It will be ugly for shareholders. Whomever they find, that is crazy enough to rescue this operation will demand a deep discount to the current share price, as well they should.
For those of you that have been around long enough, we already know what the upcoming excuse will be for the next two quarters. It has repeated itself year after year, consistently.
Stock manipulation? As has been stated in the past of course there is manipulation. But whom is to blame for that manipulation along with thin trading volume after all these years?
