    3rd Q financials posted, sort of

    by trainspimp 2 hours 7 minutes ago
    trainspimp trainspimp 1 hour 59 minutes ago Flag

    Book could be as high as $1.215, with 9 mos. earnings of $.09 added to yr end 2014 provided book value of $1.125, and the short version update in the financials section has now been provided.

  • Revenues continue to climb, but quarterly profits did not seem to keep up. Although I did see their news post on their website, the financial section did not appear to have been updated. Even if it was, the stats are bare bones when provided. Audited 10K's type information has been removed. In any event, this company chooses to post very little dialogue on the continuing operations of the company, and certainly did not appear to wish to publish the reason(s) for the slide in earnings while increasing sales. Stock price has waned recently, in light of the increasing book value, which I guestimate at above $1.05. Too me, the attitude has become- minority shareholders have no reason to have anything divulged to them, they should feel lucky with the morsels they are given. This did not seem to be the current presidents mantra when taking over the operations, but, has since morphed into this mode, even though reporting has become a tad more regular relating to timing.. We all know who really runs this company, so, my take is that the marching orders are being given by Mr. Estes. BTW, the audited financials are a requirement of their bank credit line, but the reason for not divulging them to the public shareholders mystifies me. Maybe Harold does not want to see how much his loan to the company is finally being paid down, as well as a view of all the subsidiaries they have created.

    45 cents payout, return of capital

    Well, the reason I posted the way I did was beause on the conference call that is what I recollect Tony said. He mentioned that WGA accountants had to analyze just how much the company could pay out that way based on recent financials. Absolute confirmation should be verified with the company.

  • Remainder of company still looking for a buyer. Seems like those casino licenses are not attracting much interest. Not much info relating to the servicing of cash machines either or the additional (4)states licensing. Just a little more enhancement, I suppose, for trying to make company a tad more viable to any prospective lookers. Hard to believe with that much cash, they could not find a viable business to buy. Sounds kind of lazy too me. Might as well return some capital back to shareholders whereas, why try to sell cash to someone.

    Well. with the limited amount of shares outstanding, the current products viability, the somewhat high cash balance as well as r&d funds already expensed for their upcoming new product, there could likely be a multitude of animal drug manufacturers showing an interest. Pfizer is one who walked off earlier, but most likely is very familiar with this companies prospects.

    Earning?

    btw, I first purchased Vicon in February 2000, and have traded it back and forth ever since. My degree is in securities analysis, so if you think I just blow smoke at you, you are probably correct. There is a distinct difference between revenue and earnings, and the news release very distinctly states that the comparables are not of like items, since IQVision was not joined to Vicon fully in the third Quarter, so, for comparisons, they did break out some of the indvidual numbers. At this juncture, I only care that the stock performs on the upside. I try not to provide partial financial summaries in hopes of perfuming the statements actual indications. If you choose to post only the positives you see, and not the entire picture, that is your choice, but with the name straightforward, ???.

    I guess I read the wrong news announcement. The one I read showed continued losses, not earnings. Sorry for mispost.

    slots and VLT's are not necessarily the same. In any event, approvals to actual installations can take years.

    Yes. They were very specific on this on the last conference call. They had related that any inventory remaining / not sold was going to be returned. This came about, somewhat, IMO, with the purchase if IGT by one of WGA's suppliers( GTECH ), as well as the market having reached maturity, and no new States imminently getting into the VLT business. My statements need to be vetted, I do not vouch for the accuracy. On another issue, they made a profit this quarter, and have entered a new business of servicing money changing machines in casinos. Nothing has yet been said on a merger or acquistion.GL2All.

  • This was originally IPO'd by Stuart-James. After they folded, ICCC became sort of an 'orphan' stock for many years. Previous research 'funders' pulled away years ago, and ICCC has gone on about thier business on their own, and done a significant job of cleaning up their balance sheet, and maintaining cash balances. They have done recent R&D on their own, and now, are in a position to reap the rewatds. Unfortunately, there typically is a beast around the corner waiting to gobble up good deals, just as shareholders who have endured are about to reap the gold.

  • Change/money machine sales and service. Company has sat on their behind for long enough. Contrary to last few conference calls, no one has been identified yet as beating down the door to make WGA a significant offer. This process has gone on way too long without any shareholder updates. Does folding a new line of products into the business mean WGA will be content to go it alone, or is this a strategy to enhance the value of the company to a prospective buyer. WGA, how about some updated guidance, not just when you are somewhat forced to divulge a smidgeon of nonsense at your quarterly meetings.

    Simply because most investment firms do not care to expose their clients to 20 cent stocks. In addition, in order to raise additional equity capital, an enormous amount of shares would be required to satisfy that need.. BTW, just how many machines would MDBX need to sell per month to become profitable? My only interest here is stock which was awarded as a stock dividend after I bailed on initial investment during that rather sketchy stock dividend period. In the year ( and beyond) it took to allow that stock to become registered, this has significantly dwindled in share price

    2nd Q results are very encouraging

    TCOR finally put a plan in place to finally address the loan to Estes, and in addition, that terribly high interest rate on that debt has toned down considerably. If I rermember past statements, this will be a 7 year paydown. As far as softening Texas industry, the fluids subsidiary is not a significant part of the company, yet, and it has expanded its role it appears into the trucking of fluids, as well as supply of oil production enhancing liquids, both, which as you indicate, most likely will not experience hard growth in this low oppriced oil environment. However, TCOR has created quite a myriad of subsidiaries, including Real Estate, Trucking, and including expansion of the logging equipment side of the company. Time for this company to shine its light on the investment community and relist their stock, IMO. Maybe a partial spin-off to shareholders in one of their subs is in order. GL2All.

    Hard to believe this stock reached $98.00 a couple of years back. I would concur, there is probably something big coming---a big reverse split.
