    I agree that the block trade is still a mystery. "Bely up" law is a little more clear: sureties have NO claims on company assets: they guarantee contractor's performance. The company's lenders are fully secured against the tangible fair market value of the assets, so in an orderly liquidation, they are made whole. No clue what you mean by project owners pension plans. Stock holders have no clout whether they one 1 share or 2 million shares. So again, the block trade - which appears to be a buy is a mystery. If it was a sell, the stock wouldn't have closed up on Friday and been solid yesterday when the market got creamed.

    Sentiment: Buy

    Do you really think others read your posts and believe what you write. Who is We?

    So Comerica (not CoAmerica) with $48 BILLION in Loans and $57 BILLION in deposits is going to buy 10% of the stock in a $80 million company they lend to, to protect against a default. Last time I checked, stockholders are last in line when it comes to liquidation.

  • I assume that NASDAQ has contacted the company, so I would expect some news or filing in the next day or two.

    I don't understand how that 2MM trade at the close didn't move stock.

    Sentiment: Buy

    In the purchase agreement RELL paid $11.5 million + $741,672 for recent capex purchases or a total of $12.2 million. It looks like they paid 6x EBITDA, which would be on the low end of a valuation, depending on the prospects.

    No way is the cash gone. They should have $85-90 million of cash after the transaction. This should be accretive to earnings as the cash was earning nothing.

    This analyst has a track record of raising a stock to a buy and two months later reducing it to a hold. He did the same for FSTR earlier this year. Took the price target up from 58 to 60 only to remove it altogether two months later.

    His action yesterday cost me $16,000 on paper, but nonetheless I doubled up my GBX position at the close.

    He neglects to see that the 10 year low prices on steel plate and HRS will benefit GBX, ARII and TRN.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    I can't believe I am wasting my time, but for those who don't know what NET WORTH or TANGIBLE NET WORTH is. WE need a refresher course in Accounting 101.

    Sterling accurately stated that their tangible net worth is $69.6 million. For WE who don't know. The calculation is Stockholder's Equity less (Goodwill & Intangibles). For WE who can't subtract Sterling's $124.4 million Equity - $54.8 million Goodwill = $69.6 million.

    Therefore, the company's tangible net worth of $69.6 million is equal to its market cap.

    Next lesson will be on net working capital.

    Sentiment: Buy

    Has anyone seen if there is an extension to the May 31 highway bill?

    It would be helpful if they quantify the percentage of completion downward revisions in 1Q that would assume to be recognized in 2Q.

    I'm encouraged that they still believe their backlog will generate 6% gross margins.

    Sterling's construction equipment has a basis of $167,888,000, which includes $16,000,000 of land and buildings. The $87M you refer to is the book value, not fair market value of assets. The land and building alone cover 60% of the loan.

    I deal with equipment financing companies. They are currently lending at 4.5-6.0% fixed for securitized leases with 5 or 7 year terms.

    Why do you bother writing such garbage all the time. Go to the WM message board. They enjoy garbage.

    CFO abrupt departure, weak quarter, no guidance. That does not bode for the stock even at 45/46.

    Sentiment: Sell
