    Again clearly demonstrates their lack of investor centric attitude. They will take the freebie shares and sell them before poor earnings yet they will tout the company in their report with the knowledge that the A10 Thunderbolt work is not going to..........WORK. This management is disgusting and lacks the ability to manage unless you have someone like G.W. and Dickie C bombing places they have no business doing and putting our great military at risk. Glad FOX finally trashed these two disasters. Boolean

  • Do the right thing -- after your flippant pumping of the company/stock in prior reports you could be in legal waters and perhaps the SEC needs to look into that as you clearly knew that the investments you made in the A10 Thunderbolt were foolish and would not reap the rewards you sowed.

    jim - your posts are becoming disjointed and delusional..........take care my friend. You are letting this eat at you and that just is not a good thing. I know you want to see this stock drop to a buck or two to confirm your......whatever......but that hatred and anger just is not going to serve you well. I have always said that management has been the weak link but right now I am giving them a chance to see if they can step up and get it right -- they have the market winds at their back right now so that will help. I feel better about them now than I have in a long time. I do not know of the new hires you speak but we shall see how that all plays out. I am staying long..............Boolean

    YES - The S&P will rise to at least 2100 by the end of the year. This drop is just a pause in the BULL. GOLD will also rise and is strong now as it holds its 1280 on each attempt to drop and it is even holding well with a strong dollar that should be dropping gold........again showing the underlying strength of gold. Bonds are screaming with treasuries on the move but this heightens my interest in shorting it and I already have a small position in leveraged treasury I am losing on that right now but no matter - just as I played leveraged S&P and Russell as I explained way back in 2009 and dropped some but just kept buying and now up huge. Rates will rise in 2015 as per my big picture view as economic growth is stronger in the US than impressions of it are so my 25% position in leveraged etf's will rise over coming months on that treasury bet.
    I will no longer bicker with narcissistic folks........HOW ABOUT IT - IF YOU BE YOU AND I'LL BE ME.
    Good luck all -- Boolean

    uncle - get help OK. First, the end of the year is not here -- get a new calendar OK there are actually 12 months in a year vs your calendar that apparently shows August 7th as the end of the year and that makes it NEW YEARS EVE.......for you so.....enjoy. This is a perfect correction and is late to come and will clear out that which it always does. We will hit 2100 on the S&P - that is my call not my promise but I do expect it without a doubt. Glad you had our GEM drop some today - I nice psychological boost for you I am sure.........sleep well my friend. We will go much higher along with the market. And yes I am up on those (except Brazil the most recent) as I buy when they are dead in the street. Good luck with all you do but please rethink your actions and responses as it does not impress any one but perhaps yourself. RAY will bring and even bigger PAY DAY to all investors including himself. This is not the end. Be kind my friend and reap the rewards of it. Boolean

    management should be removed - they left themselves wide open for this with no contingency or protection and now have to eat huge costs. This is what I have said - they are terrible managers and only make money when they get GIFTS FROM THE GUBERMENT. As true Republicans they now need to slash workers pay to the bone and reduce benefits. They MUST BUY AT LEAST 8K SHARES EACH ON THE OPEN MARKET TOMORROW. Read the last report where they stroked themselves and I told you it was a ruse and now we see the RUSE ON PAPER. You kids have no idea who I am but I tell the truth and am right way more than I am wrong. GOT IT. Call management tomorrow and tell them what they have to do.......they also need to look to SELL OUT TO REAL MANAGERS. I was right - AGAIN. Boolean

    along with the forward looking statements/guidance..........I will hold the stock and not take the gain at this time as the outlook keeps improving. Good luck and we shall see soon where we are. Boolean

    are not able to discern what the realists envision as they are blinded by their own US Equity market will rise to at least 2100 S&P by the end of the year AND you will see a broadening out of the market. The present sell off is perfect and timely as recent years have seen August serve as a down time - times gone by this was not the case BUT stocks are on sale right now not forming a top.
    I also see many smaller plays and beaten down stocks moving UP right perhaps we are already closing in on the bottom of this pull-back......would like a 9-11% drop from our top but whatever.
    The infrastructure BOOM that I am waiting for will come as that is an easy route to GROWTH and it is NEEDED. This will drive commodities and the world........I am long many markets from Italy - Brazil - Hong Kong - Russia and others........bought when they were slammed and most already doing well with Brazil my latest buy still basing........will buy more as it does.
    Those who spend more time bashing me than doing their research will once again be left like a deer in the headlights but there is nothing I can do from my perch and they will have to deal with it. Never embrace anger towards others as some sort of meaningful mode of enlightenment or self fulfillment as it is neither and its self destructive. As for small fry stocks uncle -- keep watching ///pesi//// that I told you about near two bucks when it was being hit for the wrong reasons......let's see if they can keep up their run. Also supreme remains a very interesting play...........and I still am buying ///rig//// as it is way oversold and earnings are due out tonite or tomorrow......will check that later. Boolean

    a few more retorts and then that will be quite enough I sure for all of us BUT...your WELL of information and insight is shallow and certainly a dry hole. You have no idea what else I see here but I have given some sense of it. This stock is going to be one of those very solid winners and the upside is huge -- always invest in management and with TWO SHAREHOLDER CENTRIC MANAGERS in our house this is GOLDEN.......a GEM. Ray has done a great job in an industry that is uncertain and risky BUT NOW we are a strong company with leverage to take advantage of THE AMERICAN RECOVERY and the WORLD RECOVERY.......people keep looking for the BULL END well that ain't no where in the cards in my MACRO VIEW........this is unprecedented times coming out of the greatest economic disaster of our time -- way worse than the great depression simply by its world-wide breadth. As we move through this year we will hit the 2100 S&P number and then mover higher next year.........FEAR will reign and investors will sell more than they should early creating some volatility but it won't stop the BULL. AMERICA IS BACK and Driving the world economic move. You can post your simple view and act silly as you do but remember - your words have no arrows into my soul and they will not dent my armor but rather, I find them a sad display by a guy looking for recognition to repair a low self esteem.....I recommend self evaluation instead - introspection a must. Think about your words my friend before it eats you up inside. Boolean

    WHAT? Enjoy your little tirades of immaturity. You have spouted the stock being priced excessively since it was under 20 bucks - you can evade reality but you can not evade the consequences of evading reality........but you have your right to spout what you want even if it is immature and wrong. That is America. Enjoy along with your thumbs down cohorts as it is my pleasure to embrace it. Boolean

    We now see China out with INCREASED manufacturing and German still doing well - UK down/flat but they rally are not a big issue (more follows the tail than leading) and we have key data coming today even more important that the jobs data just out - we have PMI manufacturing - construction spending and consumer sentiment out today. The drop in the market IS TEMPORARY - it does not portend a huge drop coming and as for Greenspan........forget his comments regarding a huge drop coming. BOTTOM LINE - BIG PICTURE........we need a little correction and it will be a buying opportunity and we go much higher - market and our GEM. The market will go higher and the S&P 2100 level is targeted for this year by Mr. Birinyi as I noted and consistent with my belief that the USA is running the show and economic growth with build and really show itself as the year progresses and into 2015. Ford just out with sales rise of 10% - better than expected for July -- Hilton hotels BOOST GUIDANCE.....ROCK ON AMERICA. We have TWO SOLID SHAREHOLDER CENTRIC leaders in our GEM and this bodes very well for our outlook on the back of this building economy. Boolean

    the calendar is loaded for news tomorrow and I suspect this market drop was a precursor to that BUT I expect it to RISE tomorrow............we have job, manufacturing and all kinds of least five.....with jobs first out at 7:30 EST. A pull back is very much needed in the market so this is good and the next BULL RUN will bring the S&P to at least 2100. Boolean

    totally unacceptable remarks for the quality of this should...but won't apologize. Prior to posting something so distasteful you should wait 24 hours and see if you still feel it is.........appropriate. As for being priced for perfection remember kids...........that is not a static the value rises (which I say it will strongly) so will the price paid for it so perfection will ratchet up with the new view of the potential and will continue to do so as that growth increases and in 2015......maybe early 2016 the company is sold at much higher levels. TWO shareholder centric managers is a GEM for me - a real EARTH STONE GEM. Boolean

  • I see BHP was also up -- economic growth will drive it much higher in 2015 so this move will likely bring us to the high 20's as the year closes out and maybe the low 30's but then 2015 will see the chart go from a slant to a sharp rise. Also the take over of the company is very much in the cards so there are a lot of ways to win here and now Casablanca just added another BUT I just don't believe that they are going to do as much as they say except that they are coming in at the tipping point for the company any way........they will look better because of this simply by the timing of the move. I voted for Cliffs and against Casa but we go. Boolean

  • are now eliminated - mitigated or reduced to manageable levels..........the slow slogging economic recovery will not die so that is only a faint issue......growth will be tepid to moderate and 2015 should really explode to the upside as the USA takes care of the world and rebuilds its economic power along with that of many other nations. You have to proud to be an AmeriCAN.......because we GET IT DONE and rise above all of the issues and encumbrances that behold us......what a country. Stay strong Supreme and management keep your eyes on the ball and new products that can drive our top and bottom line. Be good to your employees and add some to your board room discussions like Germany does..........the guy on the line knows more about things than you likely give them credit for........inclusion brings unity and unity brings strength and can power growth thru mutual growth and understanding.

    or any orders until management demonstrates that they believe in THEIR SKILLS and can drive the companies earnings BY BUYING SHARE ON THE OPEN MARKET and not just selling off their freebie giveaway shares for doing NOTHING. They need the guberment to bail them out always but need to build their base and broaden their offerings and MAKE MONEY not wait for the guberment to stroll in throwing money to them - G.W. and is crazed partner Cheney are OUT and defanged (yes FOX NEWS THREW THEM UNDER THE BUS AS WELL FINALLY and YES FOX IS OWNED BY R.M. and YES HE OWNS THE WSJ). And YES I AM AN INDEPENDENT..........try it. Boolean

    have nothing to say. Just back from hiking Glacier NP..........awesome again. New initiatives leads me to believe that management may no longer be the problem they were and if so this stock will go much much higher. We have good comparisons coming in the next three quarters so this should respond very well. Boolean

    I would pull up the interview done with Frank regarding his decision to do the reverse merger with our little GEM -- I think you will come away with a better understanding and hopefully a less distrustful attitude. We now have TWO shareholder centric managers of our stock so for me this reads volumes.......bullish volumes. I had put in the location of it but yahoo did not post it so this is a much abbreviated discussion. Boolean

  • as that is very very bullish as I have noted before - for cliffs to have only lost one cent was huge........just look at the leverage this means we have as the economy keeps improving -- they are doing well with cost containment and CAN DO BETTER so margins will rise and earnings will rise sharply as the recovery.....especially the infrastructure boom that I keep telling you about hits........this stock will be a huge winner. Interest rates are artificially LOW when you look at the big picture (and that is a bubble in its own right) so that too will help this new growth move. Very excited about the next 6-9 months. Invest forward not backward kids and don't allow all of these nonsensical news groups like Motley FOOL who need to print fear and doom and gloom to attain readers........stay strong mentally and independent of not follow the lemmings over the cliff of weakness.

    underperformed at Many Glacier Hotel -- the entire process was botched and though my wife registered before the take over by Xanterra and called repeatedly regarding our room even on our way to the hotel from East Glacier........we ended up on the bottom floor in the back. All of our requests and believe me my wife is persistent were not met. And the meals at the renovated dining room were sub par and I heard this from several biking groups as well who chose to eat at the other locations. We have not found any of these problems before and even last year we were always happy and accommodated. The meals were excellent last year. Some staff even were willing to slide in a negative remark regarding new management. Maybe Xanterra will do better as they go along but this was a bad experience and they will be told about it. Luckily Many Glacier is such a gem that you can't break that. Boolean
