I am surprised that more folks on this board are not interested in this one. I know the Capt is. I think interest starts after the price starts moving up. In this case, it should be in less than a week, so I don't know why anyone would want to wait for that to happen. You will know soon enough.
There is an offering designed to sell shares from a large holder. The price has been set at 5.25 and has brought the price down from a 52 week high of over 8. It looks like a buying opportunity to me.
Thanks again. It sounds great. Maybe someday but just bought 15 acres here in the mountains of Virginia.
NIce job. This thing is undervalued at $2 or below. It got ahead of itself a bit over $3. It will be back in a matter of time.
Hey baaadapple ... are you still in GNW and ECPG? GNW has done very well and ECPG looks to be on the way back up.
Thanks for the info. Sorry!!! I agree with you about the business and investment side but I was wondering why you would like to live there. I have heard that it is nice. Maybe if I invest long enough in BLX I will retire down there. Thanks again.
Not me but it looks interesting. I do own RBCN which has been one of my duds. They make sapphire crystals for the LED, silicone on sapphire, and optical window markets. The price of the wafers has dropped very significantly and only recently has the pricing started to improve. I would not know if this has also affected GTAT business also.
I really liked the HIMX CC. I sold some at $7 and bought some back in the lower 6s. I am hoping to buy a lot more if the price dips again. The existing businesses seem to be doing well even before Google glass will start to impact results.
Both look like reasonable opportunities to me. I know nothing about the business or industry. Are you expecting these companies to profit from the fracking boom???
My only comments are as follows:
- debt to equity is higher than the average company but it seems that this is a capital intensive industry and it is not out of line for the industry.
- for some reason the forward earnings estimates for PES were reduced.
- the capital expenditures for these companies are always high in comparison to depreciation and net income. I am not sure what the adjustments to net income lines are all about. Resulting cash flow doesn't seem exciting but then again cash flow would be tight if they were growing.
Was the insider buying what drew you to them???
Nice run up into earnings. I am taking some profits today. I don't know what to expect with earnings but Google glass is still a ways off.
Not a very strong Q but the outlook for the rest of the year sounds reasonable. This will be the usually cash accumulation phase of a few quarters before looking to an acquisition or yet another special dividend.
However, There are many companies that always guide below consensus even though they are growing strongly. Unfortunately, I have not followed this company long enough to get a feel for how conservative and accurate management is with guidance.
You are correct in the fact that what counts in the end are expectations and what is already built into the share price. Thanks for your thoughts and observations!
Hey, I had fewer shares than I would have liked so the premarket dip was a nice gift. Don't ruin it for me. The shares will go higher later if not sooner.
