Except be one of the most profitable solar companies in existence. Other than that little detail, they're doing nothing.
Try Glendronach 15 year (in the green bottle)...best value in Scotch, bar none.
Why does yahoo send me emails telling me that buffoons that I have on ignore have responded to my posts? Isn't the entire purpose of ignore to not waste time on the useless dribble of these board gnats? It's really ticking me off. Stop it Yahoo! Ignore means ignore!!!
You are ignoring the fact that CSIQ is keeping a lot of projects and generating recurring revenue from electricity sales. What was it last quarter? $8.6MM, off of just 257 MWp? That number will keep growing as they continue to build toward a gigawatt peak of operating assets. Further, as build costs lower, CSIQ profits from operating solar projects goes up. You're the master at telling half truths. Kudos.
She also said that $5MM was the beginning of the cost reductions and would be concluded this quarter...there are more cuts coming as she right sizes the structure.
Well...your take seems to assume the death of the gaming industry, which I am unwilling to do. We have seen the Wii come and go. We have Zynga rise and fall. I could go on. The point is that there is strong demand as the market remains hungry for the next big thing in gaming, making and breaking billion dollar companies along the way. History tells us that a company just need to be on the leading edge of the wave to have resounding success.
The question is can MCZ identify that demand, create viable products to leverage that demand, and execute upon it. They are well positioned, creating products that are respected in the industry. Management of costs during lean times before the next big thing is critical to success...for MCZ and every other company in this space, IMO. We haven't had that under DR.
The RB4 bet was not a bad one. I just don't think they expected GHL to compete so aggressively, which undermined the potential success of RB4. I think I mentioned a while back that when I went into Target post Thanksgiving, there was one RB4 on a lower shelf, hidden away. Meanwhile GHL had two large interactive displays with 30+ boxes on the shelves. I suspect that there were no winners in the music gaming space this holiday season.
2nd highest sales quarterly net sales says that their strategy is not all wrong...the bottom line numbers are what is killing them. They need to streamline operational costs and get margins line...if they do, you have a viable company.
I don't know how many of you saw the movie "Big," with Tom Hanks, but when I think of DR I get this picture in my head of Hanks at the end of the movie when he is trying to pitch his $60 electronic comic book...cool, but no one would ever pay enough for the product to make any money. Sounds familiar?
It has taken about $174k write off of goodwill that has dragged earnings, but eliminate those one time value impairments, and the company is still earning a profit even with difficult sector metrics. If it can continue to survive, this will become a huge steal.
