Ken, long time. I have posted this same thing a time or two. Its not disputable. Although RSH has had some really bad CEO in its time. CEO-JOE claim to fame is all the coin he lost. So I get your title. Worst performing I think your right, Worst CEO probably not.
nobs, where to begin..
Nobs you first....10-25 cents in liquidation...LIQUIDATION..did u read it.liquidation. Again stop the BS spin. Read the material and dont change it. Only a fraction of the goods will get sold if they close.the majority goes to a liquidator. Get a dam clue and pour over what happened to Circuit Cirty and other companies forced to liquidate. Sheesh you are making a fool of yourself here on your spin cycle
Mich your post above I agree. As long as these payments are made its fine. The math shows they need more cash and very very soon. Where that comes from I dont know. This rumor refi doesnt have the extra cash in it from what I have read. I see it as good money on bad and who is going to do that. I think if we get in there head they are shocked at the current burn rate.
Mich, Come on. You and I know the lendors at one point are going to prompt Bankruptcy. Honestly how much coin do you think they will pour down a well that is not producing and costing a fortune. Its very simple so please leave out the spin. The way they(LENDERS)were going to get paid was interest payments on very high interst rate they currently have. In the event of a Chapt 7 these lendors are going to take huge losses. If they cannot get the interest payments no sense in going forward. No you may not believe they will file BK and thats fine. I see it other wise with the information the company has provided. When you lose money and have no new money its pretty simple to math out where it all ends. I appreciate the grown up talk opposed to nnobs whom is very emotional.
Its posts like your that give real investors a bad name. Can I help you.......inventory does not keep lights on and employees paid and order new gear. Please..go to the store and tell em you have stuff at home so can you have some new stuff....do you see how absurdly silly you sound. That inventory you speak of...its mostly unsellable merch thats worth 10-25 cents on the dollar proven by the Circuit City liquidation. Again.its not $1 mil per day loss.its $1.5 and growing. November.............remember that.
What does this myth refi do....thats the kicker.....NOTHING. Thats why smart money exited on the pop. If you are playing for a refi pop your in for a big shock. Its no wonder the company does not even respond to this refi nonsense as it does nothing. Now even if they get $200 million in new money plus the refi it does verfy little. Buy them time some may say...time for what. To lose more money This is a company losing more and more daily. They are not slowing into the curve they are speeding up.
All this info is in Earnings reports. Do some DD and fact check any of this you like. Its not a pump or a short. Its the truth
Now that BANKRUPTCY(BK) is common in the talk and the company itself has mentioned it in the latest ER can we clear up some common nonsense?
BANKRUPTCY_First lets talk Bankruptcy(BK). Do they need-want or have to. Well no one wants to and some are forced to. RSH does not make money and has not for some time. Longs-- shorts this cannot be disputed. Every new gimmick they try falls on its face with a bigger loss. Nothing and I mean nothing has worked for years. They have never lost money faster then they are currently and cash and credit on hand is nearly exhausted. It will all be gone in less than 60 days. All this loss has racked up huge debt as well. This debt is at really high interest rates as RSH has in its simplest form....a very bad credit rating corprate wise CCC. This debt will be very hard for a company making tons of money to pay back...impossible for a company bleeding $1.5 mil daily. When Bankruptcy is filed(and it will) they will have choices. Chapt 11 reorganize or #$%$ over. One only has to look at whats happening for a few years and be honest and decare its over now. The BK court gives them so long to right the ship and then turns an 11 filing to a 7 filing
REFI_ This is a easy one as we have a very clear roadmap. RSH completed the "BIG" refi of all its debt at the end of last year. A few short months agao. This full refi gave better terms but at much higher rates but more important it had approx $180 mil in new money. We didnt know at the time the buisness was slidding faster then the lendors though and this new money would be gone in less than 90 days. Well anyone who has been here a while saw the runnup on the hype of a refi and once signed the stock tanked from $3 to new 52 wk lows of 50 cents. Why did it tank? Thats easy...this refi did nothing to help RSH survive. Now rumors fly about another refi of the main amount $585 mil. We again had the pop on the rumor and then the sell off. All that is left is new 52 wk low on the signing if real.
In the blink of an eye
I try not to post as much as I have some other investments ripping that take more time but my short in RSH is going nowhere but to the bank. Yet another Q playing out exactly as I called it. The price action and the deception RSH management uses is so predictable. I cannot count how many times the rumour slip out the day before earnings to attempt to lift the pps before the horror is released in the morning. Its flat comical to watch these kids drawn in hook line and sinker on this nonsense. Really so many need to learn how to soundly inbest and more important see and understand whats coming. Its the only way to profit long term.
Now back to the Shack action. OK fake pump is in but we still have some die hard PPS biting. The real ugly news is in the 10q.It details for the first time the word BANKRUPTCY to threaten to get creditors to extend more cash. Now latter today is the spin..the confrence call. Folks CC are spins and forward looking lies and dreams. Its the one part of a distressed company you throw out. The 10Q is the truth and fact book....the CC is trash of which ZERO has come true. Well the 10q is ugly. This company reported exactly what I said it would losing the loss of over $1 mil per day formula. I advise any long to get out. If you feel you cannot break your love affair sit it out until Bankruptcy is announced and play the short lived pop after.
Remember, what ever the share price does it doesnt matter. The downward trend of truth is unbroken and is in fact speediing up. Radio Shack will close people. Regardless of what they do they are powerless over the Amazons and on and on.
Every board has your type. You just cannot hear enough of your own voice. I am not hear posting 24.7 like yourself. You have posted over and over same message, Now run along and pursue your one liners elsewhere cause at the end of the day your theses is dead wrong 3 years and counting.
Lstly, ask your self the nonsens questions you keep posting? Then run along and educate yourself.
For some reason you seem to make ever post about you. It says alot about you. That said you called my post rubbish. I encoraged a fact check. Lets see it. Put your money where your mouth is. Where is the rubbish? I just see the bla bla bla in your posts. Never substance
I have an instant image of your investment savy after reading your post. Suffice it to say what a stock is trading at has no relevent connection to where its heading. We have a news even coming in 48 hours that an indepedant agaency(auditors) had to sign off on. Its not spin BS like at a Confrence Call where they do damage control. Let me give you one other tidbit. RSH usually allways...always release some sort of percieved positive info after hours or near the close the day before earnings to help prop up the share price. It never works the next day.
I wish I could help you. Your a basic whom ever like most on this board that makes your moves off the share price. Good luck with that. If you ever want to make big money you better get educated on real investing and all it contains. Good Luck
Can we put long or short aside here? The reality if you have gone long is you have ignored every fact and true report on radio shack...reports released by the company itself you have turned a blind eye to....now i am sure you are all shook up at this but prove it wrong. You have on the other hand invested in rumors.......promises from a ceo at confrence call that as i type has not had any of such events come true....go ahead...fact check my post...i find it funny longs do not believe the companys earnings reports but hang their wallets on rumors of an underwater hedge fund desperate to get back to even..
i will tell you in 48 hours earnings will come..they will be horrible and the stock price will fall, it will fall the most in the days and weeks after as the analysts write about the demise of the company and downgrade this near dead stock further. I read some of the nonsense on this site but most is just that, made up pumper nonsense about this and that =for the most part written by desperate retail investors who are no doubt underwater. We do have many new faces from the big drop from $1.77 to 55 cents of last earnings and i feel for them on there first earnings day. Its going to be an education to say the least
25 is more likey in the direction we are heading. I am very bullish on this stock but its incrediblly weak and appears poised for a major break to the downside.
The RSH run was a joke. Who on earth twists the truth and buys this crud. If you were up on this trade and did not sell you were foolish. The BBY earnings release is a blowout compared to what the RSH one wil be
The takeaway here is everyday this gets one step closer to that BK press release. Its coming, any sane person knows this
Your post is a re-cap of everything not to do in investing. You are as well the poster child for a long RSH investor. You are not tryng to make money but just get back to even. There lies your problem.You even model RSH future to fit your investment which your data is just nonsense. Investing is not about contrairian gambling. Underwater fools penned that nonsense.
