Wow! Great guidance. Earnings are guided above the aggressive $0.34 estimate on Seeking Alpha. Look out tomorrow!
There will be a load of selling when the stock starts trading. If it gets down to $0.005 I might take a flyer.
Doesn't happen very often, but I dodged this bullet. Sold out yesterday. Retail is just brutal right now. Truckers are also getting hit. I think we need to start considering the R word.
The Alpha Hydrox was actually flat to last quarter. It was up over 60% from the quarter last year as last year's quarter was a bad quarter. A better way to look at it is it was up 14% year to date. That is actually quite good as this product has had declining sales for decades.
The company inexplicitly paid significant income taxes despite having a huge amount of loss carry forwards. Also advertising was significantly increased. Without these items net income would have been about $0.07. The dry shampoo is still growing in double digits and everything else is rather flat.
Down 80% in two years. This stock is trading like it is going out of business. Yet they have a commanding 40% market share. The biggest risk here is Sears which is probably 15-20% of sales. Other than that it's just a matter of getting the fashion right, and they get several chances at that each year.
This business is not suddenly worth 50% less than it was worth last week. The problems are contained to a business that makes up 25% of sales and less than that in earnings. The problem is also quickly fixable should management choose to return to the promotions of the past.
Yes back on track. My estimate is earnings were $0.06 excluding non-recurring items and including an allocation for taxes, which they aren't paying right now. Management said it gets better from here.
Joseph A. Bank is hurting due to a management decision to cut out most of the crazy promotions they do. Predictably, the same result happened as when JCP tried the same thing. JCP proves, this strategy wont work. Bank's promotions are unsavory but they do work. Hopefully management will realize that and go back to them before its too late. Meanwhile, J.A. Bank is only 25% of MW. The rest of MW is doing fine. The stock price should not have gone down more than 25%. Giving J.A. Bank no value, the rest of MW is worth at least $35.
Read the Seeking Alpha article on EDUC out today. Revenues and earnings up over 100%, great product, no channel stuffing, the company carries the inventory itself, and the product sold through MLM sells for the same price as can be found in stores. HLF sells their product at 2-3 times the comparable products found in stores.
There is a new Seeking Alpha article on EDUC today. It focuses on why EDUC's multi-level marketing program is not abusive toward its agents like most other MLM's are. That makes EDUC's growth much more sustainable.
Looked at TIK. Yes they have had big revenues and earnings growth. However, the backlog at the most recent quarter end was off 33% from a year earlier indicating revenues are likely to fall. The EDUC surge is not over. It's still picking up steam. Don't sell your shares.
Big jump in revenues, recurring revenues from rentals, and utilization rate. We would have been over $0.70 EPS without an asset write off. Asset write offs are probably not non-recurring items and equipment sales were at higher than normal levels, so I don't think we can say they are running at $0.70 EPS. But they are much better than the $0.32 they reported, and the trend is upward. Liking it!
I agree. Normally I'd be gone at this point, but there is about 10% upside from here, meaning the return on investment from here is close to 20%.
This deal means as much to TDK as it foes to HTCH. Just look at the premium they are paying. TDK will finally be able to make money making suspension assemblies.
I recently made a quick profit trading this one from $4.50 to $5.25. Was waiting for it to get down to $4.50 to re-enter. But based on these earnings, there has been more deterioration. Look for a new trading range of $4.00 to $5.00.
I don't hold stocks very long, about 9 months on average. KTCC was by far my oldest holding, I've had my position since 2011. I finally let go today. The initial announcement of the $2 million hit led me to believe it was a one time occurence. However, the guidance yesterday shows its longer term than that. A return to somewhat normal earnings was put off considerably. I'm not willing to wait for something that isn't going to happen in the near term, and based on the track record, may not happen in the intermediate term either. I was also put off that they even took a $2 million loss, the customer should be on the hook for that. Good luck all.
Take a look at EDUC. MLMs are distasteful, but they can be extremely lucrative if you get in early, AND actually have a good product to sell.
It's almost over here. Another six months maybe.
