They had to go and release that article 'bout the thousands of dealers who R NOW enrolled in Siri's used car promo= CANNOT release ANY news 'bout Siri= good news sends it down + bad news sends it further down!!!!
Today's "performance" says it all= Naz soars, + Siri is barely able to stay afloat= loses a penny or 2; Naz, sinks, + siri sinks much worse, BUT, thru it all, it seems to return to the 3.5 level and indefinitely "hover' there!
Could it even possibly B that Malone would prefer this stock to B as "stagnant" as possible, thusly making it a rather un-attractive to investors who R looking to have their stock Appreciate, vs, lucky to stay @ the constant 3.5?
At least he's doing a great job of making his effort to run off the retail investors, as transparent as possible= can't see the manipulation of THIS equity, then, U R either a part of the scam, or just too stubborn to admit that Malone is using a "third party" to run off retail investors in H I S company!!
Can there POSSIBLY B any doubt(imo) that a "lackie programmer" has Siri share value programmed to trade @ a 3.50(range)?
Again(imo), it would seem that J.Malone has his G.S. buds flash trading Siri in a 3.50 lockdown, in an effort to make his "next scam offer" seem that much more attractive!! Market goes UP + siri struggles to hold 3.5; mkt goes down + siri goes down FURTHER, only to eventually "re-surface" @ the 3.5 level!
At least J.M is giving a great deal of transparency to his agenda to drive out the remaining retail shareholders= anyone can't see what's happening = just does'nt WANT to C it!!
As much as he MAY try to deny it, this "Crunching #'S Guy" can B counted on to put some form of NEGATIVE slant on Siri, in just about EVERY article he releases. P E R I O D!
BUT, in THIS article, he's , imo, ON POINT. Yes, he DOES dig deep to give "Slanted info", that's, IMO, sometimes a form of mis-direction +/OR, mis-information, BUT, he's correct= Malone will do whatever HE wants to with Siri, + there's not much any retail shareholder can do 'bout it!
Going along THESE lines, the last few sessions, Siri has traded @ at least DOUBLE its avg. daily volume(of traded shares) Makes one wonder IF Malone has his "third party lackies" @ work again, accumulating shares 4 him, inasmuchas he has a "plan to get there more quickly".
Just a thought, BUT, there will B times when, after very good news is released, it'll B a little harder 4 Malone's lackies to surpress S/V, and, hence, he goes to his "plan B", whatever the H&%L THAT may B!!!!!!!
Lmca(Liberty), CHTR(Charter) + P , R all taking a bath= Perhaps some of those P holders R changing over to SIRI= The only green in this bunch!
U just don't get it(or, don't want to)!! Malone is using HIS G.S. lackies to surpress S/V to make buying this stock as un-attractive as holding it is= THE avg. investor does'nt like seeing his/her $$$ tied up in a totally stagnated investment. U R now gonna say what a "great opportunity" this is= being one of the few remaining reets and the S/V will skyrocket= Malone's gonna pull every strin he can to steal away every last retail share as cheaply as possible(imo) and, that's exactly what he + his G.S. buds have been doing with this buyback= using Siri's FCF + borrowed $$ to give HIM increased ownership + control of decision making. He OWNS siri + is gonna try anothe "slick maneuver", only next time he + his majority ownership will have a great deal MORE power to sc832W the remaining reets out of THEIR shares. may not like it, but might as well accept it and get used to it, 'cause THAT'S exactly what's BEEN going on + will continue to happen!!!!
Malone, has had enough of this slightly higher Share Value= He's NOT going to pay a penny more than necessary to gain complete control of the retail shares; surprised that he let it go any higher than 3.5. It's Not the good news re: siri's quarterly results that R going to send S/V back down= it's those who Malone is paying to surpress the S/V that R going to continue their "hatchet Job", in order to drive away retail holders, AND, Keep S/V low so as to try to make Malone's next insulting offer look that much more appealing Right, like THAT'S gonna happen. At least there's a good deal of transparency here= when so much good news hits the press, and the results R a continuing decrease in S/V, it's obvious that the stock is being controlled by OTHER factors that make co. performance and share value performance a complete disconnect= BUT, what else is new? Things have, 4 the most part, always been THIS way with Siri's s/v performance!
"The End Game"= He has a "second party" keep the share value low as possible, while using Siri's borrowed money to buy shares back= P.Releases have indicated that the "buybacks" R currently being executed on Retail shareholders' shares, ergo, he cleans house of as many "reets" as possible to gain more = more shares 4 himself!
Eventually, imo, he'll come up with yet another grandiose scheme, like the " non-voting c-class shares @ 3.68?" value ea., to try to s*&^w the rest of the remaining reets out of THEIR shares before he calls off "his dogs"+ lets the S/V escalate; till then, business as usual + share value will continue to B a total disconnect to the company's "operational metrics"!
R E D by day's end ? Imo, Malone's G.S. lackies will turn this good news into yet another inexplicable loss, just as they do every other day that there's A N Y type of news released, re: Siri!!!
Must B very annoying to J.Malone to see his siri stock increase, even if 4 only a short while; imo, his goal= to use siri's capital to buy back as many shares cheaply as possible + run out as many retail investors as possible, while doing so= when he reaches whatever his target is, again, imo, he'll then begin a series of more of his ridiculous scams to try to fleece the remaining siri retail shareholders out of whatever shares they may hold= JMO, But, let's face it, he's just "that kinda guy"!!!
This A.M., Siri released what has to B considered, an "exceeded expectations" news report, re: 4th qtr., + for 2014!!!
Now, the question remains(two-fold), just how much will this "good news" hurt siri's share value, by today's close. Historically, A N Y news seems to cast a dark shadow over siri's S/V!
Likewise, Seeking Alpha's, "Crunching Numbers" is likely, @ this moment, digging deeply, to figure out how to put negative spin on this A.M.'s news release.
Though he insists otherwise, He might as well get over it= his "blogs" can B counted on to cast a negative inference on even the most positive siri news.
My guess= He'll probably skip any ref. to the past year's accomplishments + make the 2015 "forcast" all about gloom and doom for Siri= count on it!
In spite of what type of juvinile manure the 1 or 2 idiotic bashers(ea. using 4-6 different screen-names) R spreading today, It seems as if Siri's merely going to go thru yet another of its "hustle phases" of trading= where Malone's G.S lackies earn their retainer by flash trading S/V D O W N, so as to run off as many more retail shareholders as possible= Malone wants A L L of Siri's shares 4 himself(excepting those shares, of course, that he's dedicated to those who help him do his dirty work)
Gonna B interesting 2 C just how long J.M continues to "hustle" shares out of the retailers' hands, before he decides to pull the plug and do whatever it takes 4 him to assume complete control over his most valuable asset, SIRI!
In fact, the future's looking dimmer + dimmer 4 the "cable industry" where Malone has, historically been most heavily invested; imo, trying to expand his foothold by acquiring TWC, could've drastically backfired on him, IF the cable industry goes POOF! He's going to depend more + more on Siri, as time marches on +, thusly, he'll do everything in his power to squeeze out the remaining retail shareholders!
Yesterday's volume was almost twice that of the avg trading day! +. Liberty also had very high vol.
That having been said, could Siri B "tracking Liberty's share action?
Yesterday, Zack's released a revised Liberty rating+ made it a "strong sell". So, in spite of increasing subs + increasing cash flow, Siri's S/V may NOW B getting hammered for what its "stepfather, Liberty" is rated at!!!!!
Malone gets to buy more cheap shares from retailers, this way, and, imo, can B expected to make another attempt to Hypnotize the siri retail shareholders into thinking that he's giving them a "good deal"= That'll B the day!!!
Malone going to Ride siri into the "assisted living home"?
He's getting close to the retirement zone, + IF he wants to enjoy his billions, he may start thinking 'bout doing some retirement planning with siri.First thing he could, + should do(imo) is to separete IT from Liberty's umbrella so that the "son does'nt get punished 4 the father's sins"!!!!
So, as we all know, Siri is the major asst in Liberty's(AKA J. Malone) holdings; and, as we can all see, BOTH siri + Liberty's shares R sinking on a daily basis, with Liberty's sinking ever so slightly MORE than Siri's.
Now, though it would seem that Malone must be overjoyed at the cheap prices he's buying siri's shares back(mostly from siri's retail shareholders+ with SIRI'S $$), it's beginning to B a bit puzzling as to whether Liberty is dragging siri down, or, vice versa!!
Either way, Malone is prpbably licking his chops, and getting his next ridiculous "offer" ready to present to Siri's reets, U NO, like the original offer comrised of newly printed, worthless liberty shares, supposedly worth 3.68 ea!!!
'Course, by NOW, J.M. surely realizes that the majority of siri retail shareholoders will give him the same answer that they did with his original insulting scam= stick it where the sun don't shine; BUT, would'nt surprise a bit, IF he were to try to go down that very same road, once again= after all, he's still a multi-billionnaire, + couls likely care less IF siri's share value goes down to a dollar= just gets him the rest of ownership, that much more cheaply!!!
That did'nt take long= when U know someone who's got the best flash trading program around, it's worth it to pay them a hefty fee to "stick it to" those who r "trying to steal Y O U R shares"!!!!!!
J.M.'S "Buds" struggling to get S/V into the red, where Malone's gonna keep it until he runs off all/or, most of those retail shareholders still holding aprox 2 bil$ worth of "H I S" shares!!!
Wow- Siri's outstanding content, evergrowing cash flow and sub base etc., etc., R sure helping its share value= Once again= a total disconnect between the share value and product and company operational metrics= But, it's just Malone putting the screws to the retail shareholders trying to run them off so he can garner ALL of siri's shares!
Well, as some would suggest, this "buyback program" seems to be working out quite well 4 Liberty(aka= J.Malone). I.E., they r getting to buy shares back, @ what have to B gargain prices, + that's good, right?
But, as one S/A blogger put it, the shares being "bought back", R, 4 the most part, shares owned by "retail shareholders, who have been getting more + more discouraged by the recent "Share value lockdown" staus of siri's shares!
Hard to NOT notice how siri's S/V goes red, every nit in after hr trading, + how, in the face of INCREASING auto sales, and DECREASING # of outstanding shares, Siri's price continues to decline a ct or two on a daily basis!
And, this is what we call a normal, legitimate trading pattern? Frankly, it appears(imo) that this company's share value performance + its operating metrics continue to be, as referenced MANY times, a total disconnect+ will now B at the mercy of those being pd by its ceo to hold its s/v in check, until he runs off every retail investor and owns every last share of the company that he pd the Last ceo a whopping 1/2 billion to, so that HE would exit quietly and hand the REST of siri over to its new ceo on a platter!
As the late and great Paul Harvey used to say, "here's the rest of the story"= Malone's gonna(imo) keep this stranglehold on siri's S/V(thru his lackies' help) 4 as long as it takes to run off every last retail investor=why? "Cause, imo, he just can't stomach the thought of ANYONE else(other than his crony buds) making even a nickel off the company that he pd a net of 14 thousand $$ 4+ THAT's the kinda guy that he's showing himself to B!
Just look at this stock's A/H performance EVERY night= it goes red in A/H every nite, and, that's not an accident= it's because it's programmed to do so by the best + most powerful $$ machine in the world +, we all know who THAT Is= it's the company that would jump thru whoops 4 a sure nickel just like the guy who's paying them to put the screws to the siri retail shareholders!!!!!!!
