Actually, the "last offer" wasn't even NEAR an offer, but, rather a fishing expedition to see if he could pull off that ploy.
I just don't think that he's done trying to get the rest of the 48% under Liberty's wing; AND, IF he tries again, though he'll(imo) STILL try to STEAL the rest of the shares, he'll do so in a more conventional manner= say a 3.50 offer????!!!!!!!
Because they should B buying shares, dirt cheap; because of so many recent upgrades; because they've repositioned their debt to B cheaper; because they got an S+P and Moody's upgrade/!
No= it's because Malone WANTS it low so that he can jump in with yet another insulting low-ball "conv rate'!
Earnings will B positive, BUT, will B applied in such a way as to B applied to "future goals", thus making eps dismal+ giving the so-called "analysts" fuel to say" Where's the 2-4 cts per share?
This is what mgt did last qtr +, inasmuchas they WANT to make sure that ANY of those profits + fcf R N O T released into shareholders' hands, they'll distribute their earnings to applications that make the qtr look less than forcasted!
IMO, Malone is going to try to low ball the 48% AGAIN, and, he's using his G.S. pimp buddies to help S/V stay depressed to make his next insulting offer look more attractive than the las lowballed conv rate takedown= he's 'just that kinda guy"!
Actually, he's an even bigger loser than THAT, IF U add in the other aliases that he's using= it's become a 24/7 job= either bashing 4 nickels OR, he's REALLY lost his ash on Siri + can't get over it!
So much basher trash talk; loads of bashers(actually 2-3, @ most, idiots, using 5-10 diff aliases) going "negative balistic" is even better than ANY upgrade= means that these 2-3 perverts R trying 150% TO STOP THE INEVITABLE(as THEY see it) of an impending increase in share value!
Rather see them sqiurm than 2-3 analysts' upgrades= sends a MUCH stronger positive signal, IMO!!! GLTA!!!
Well, NOT as devastating as expected, BUT, an 8.04% INCREASE(UP 18 mil shares). So= Shorts REALLY do rule siri's S/V= hedge funds and/or M+M'S R STILL in control= STILL THEIR favorite A T M= LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Getting close to that "magic time" when Siri S/V does its "evaporation act".
Likely, 3:45-3:50P.M., when it suddenly goes DOWN, by 2-5%!
Gotta admit= it's MORE likely to happen than not!! Just saying, G.S. STILL owns this stock's daily "close"!
3:45 P.M., goes from 3.13 down to 3.00, if it DOESN'T we're in 4 a very rough Monday!!!!!!!!!!
PLEASE= As IF anyone is taking a shred of your babble seriously= Short interest report will NOT be released till AFTER today's close; AND, it MAY go higher, BUT, as usual, your comments R based on pureB. .S., so= PL. give it a break, lay off the booze + take your meds= Your food stamps + this nickel a post job just ain't gonna help pay 4 your addiction, whatever it may B!= Give it a rest= nobody gives a #$%$ 'bout your nickel a post job!
And that coming from someone as delusional as you, who keeps praising his "daddy" malone 4 doing such great things; Hey, since Malone tried to "help the 48% " with his conv. takedown, , Liberty has crashed almost as much as Siri, +, btw, How's Charter doing since he tried to "lowball" Time Warner?
C'mon man, anyone here is clueless, it's you + your totally charasmatic attitude. Crawl back in your hole @ the Liberty board= No one here takes anything U say seriously; U r just TOO demented with your Malone love fest!!!
Who's to say that he doesn't have Goldman Sachs on a retainer to drive down S/V + buy as much as possible(under contract) to gain a huge % of shares, + THEN have a stronger "negotiating stance" with what's left of the 48% group of Siri's "minority shareholder group?
Far out? maybe, but, he's just that kinda guy!
Looking back, over siri's history, we see that Howard Stern has made well over a billion$ off Siri's "investors. Likewise, when Mel K "walked", he made close to 500 mil. in options; + the "rest of THAT mgt team also cleaned house!
Could look prior to THOSE folkks + see that the "previous Siri mgt. regime" also made out like bandits!
So, Siri has always made its mgt a ton of $$ while the shareholders, 4 the most part, pd 4 all of those folks inflated salaries.
Nothing's changed here, Malone's trying his best to make sure that the retail investors get close out from sharing in ANY of Siri's earnings, and, its "profits go directly to the bottom line of Liberty + Malone's back pocket"!
THA WAS the "thought process,I.E., positive press +/or, upgrades R actually doing more harm than good, B U T, in looking back, over the last few months, since Siri's S/V has been under a great deal of down ward pressure, it's becoming obvious that GOOD news OR bad news have as little to do with Siri's share value performance as its operating metrics do; 'course we'll hear a lot from those who will say that Siri "sales R down", "its profits R dwindling", etc,+, likewise will hear from all of the positive press releases saying that Sir's metrics R still strong, BUT, whoever wants this stock to go down sharply, has the power to make it happen + has been doing just THAT.
The "rest" is irrelevent; Siri's gonna keep going down(imo) until whoever's pushing it down decides that they've eliminated as many "retail shareholders as possible", + then THEY will pull the trigger + make it turn around.
Reat is meaningless, here; Siri's gone thru this many times, + it's what has made this(likely 'cause of its abundance of outstanding shares) the easiest + best stock to B manipulated! Just THAT simple!
Bi-monthly short interest report to B released AFTER tomorrows close( after 4:00 P.M., Wed., 04-09-2014!)
Likely see another huge upward spike, like the 20% increase of the last report!
+, NOT ONE business "reporter+/OR analyst will refer to this nonsense as pure manipulation= This is getting to look more and more like G.S. is doing this; why? = 'cause all the analysts + journalists R afraid to "call them out"; G.S. would punish them severely 4 even hinting that they would B doing this! Siri has gone down this road so many times that it's become one of the best income sources 4 those who trash the mkt, every day!!!!
Any chance that Malone actually IS buying hundreds of millions of "cheap shares"(+ telling Siri NOT to do ANY buybacks)?
In doing so he could accumulate a much higher % of ownership, and THEN have a lot less shares to "buy" to gain 75-90 % ownership. Would'nt put ANYTHING past him; +, he's likley going to do so with the help of those like G.S., who have NO recriminations 'bout pulling off something like this!
Any questions? Closes 1ct off the low of day, by being jammed down @! very last minute to close in RED, while mkt was nicely U P. And, this'll go on + on till the M+M'S run out all the retail holders, +then, have their pimp analysts @ Gold. Sachs release a "strong upgrade"= The best scam since Matoff was given clearance from the SEC to extend HIS run aprox 2-3 years BEFORE he should've went to jail!!' BTW, Where's the siri home office when their stock + mkt cap is getting raped, every day? Getting to seem rather strange that THEY seem so "content" with their company's value disappearing before their eyes!!!
A great day 4 Siri, @ THIS time= down a mere 2cts, BUT, will B surprised IF it closes ABOVE its low of the day!
G.S. Program operator is likely "taking a break" on a slow day!
