Not too late. Monday morning is probably a bad time to start. In any case, you are in.
So far there are only six of us. Maybe we will get a few other last minute entries. So far I have:

Ok, I got three of us entered so far. As the defending champ, you are the guy to beat!
Thanks for starting the new thread. That will help to find entries.
I am not near the last to report for once. Here are my picks:
HIMX: Still waiting for some actual announcements of rollouts of new products using their new technologies, particularly in the area of image sensors (CMOS + wafer level) and displays (LCOS for head mounted units). The price has dropped to below $6 and is now above $7. It will go X-divi in a couple of weeks with a 0.30 payment (+4.2%). This is my second largest holding.
KINS: Kingstone Insurance a small insurer in the NY, NJ area with a history of growth. They seem to treat their reps well and promote good performance. Plans are in the works for approval to spread to other geographic areas. It has a 2.7% yield. I have a moderate position in this company.
CRTE: CareTrust is into real estate for the healthcare industry. They currently have a 4.9% dividend that appears to be well covered. The price is beaten down because dividend stocks will be less attractive as interest rates rise. I have a small position.
I did not choose my other usual pick of silicon motion since it has had a nice run up. Even though it may have much further to go with great results of their SSD (solid state drive) products, it may need a breather.
Do you and your wife decide on your investments together? That is great if that is the case. My wife does not have the background or interest but I am very fortunate that she has faith and confidence in my decisions and realizes that they all won't work out or that some years will be bad ones. Actually, over the years she has picked up enough to at least be literate on the subject which is something for which I am proud of her. I would be interested on how that works for you two if you care to comment.
Welcome back. It is the same for me. I first bought after bankruptcy, before the reverse split, and before listing and sold somewhere near 20.. I just recently came back for a look but I did buy some again.
It appears that the company and Wells Fargo have agreed to waive any credit default until June 30. Am I reading too much into this by thinking that this might imply that the accounting can be rectified in short order by the end of the month? If that is the case, this matter doesn't sound like a big deal. Then again, it can be a standard extension with the company knowing they have no way to meet it. Any guess is just speculation until we actually see the numbers issued but I am grasping at straws.
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement, Financial Statement
On May 28, 2015, the Company executed a Fifth Amendment and Limited Waiver to Credit Agreement (the "Amendment"), among the Company, Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as Administrative Agent, and the Lenders. Under the Amendment, the Lenders agreed to (i) waive the existing Events of Default,
(ii) waive any Events of Default that may arise solely as a result of the Company's failure to deliver its financial statements for the 2014 fiscal year and first quarter of 2015, (iii) consent to the delivery of the Company's restated financial statements for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2014 on or before June 30, 2015, and (iv) consent to an extension of time until June 30, 2015 for the delivery of the Company's quarterly financial statements for the first quarter of 2015. Under the Amendment, the Company agreed to (i) permit t
That is a good testimony to the usefulness of the product. A couple of days ago on a business show, I saw HR Block doing trials using Oculus VR headsets to interact with customers. It looks like head mounted devices are finally getting here.
On May 27, 2015, Span-America Medical Systems, Inc. (the "Company") and its credit facility lender TD Bank, N.A. entered into a First Amendment to Loan Documents amending the Company's revolving credit facility by (i) extending the maturity date to April 30, 2018, (ii) reducing the maximum availability under the facility from $10 million to $5 million (and eliminating the unused line fee if the outstanding balance on the line is less than $5 million that was applicable prior to the amendment), (iii) eliminating the dividends covenant and
(iv) modifying the tangible net worth covenant to update the tangible net worth threshold to the threshold in effect in accordance with the terms of the covenant at the time of execution of the amendment. There is currently no outstanding balance on the line of credit, and the Company is not in default under the line of credit.
Unless my math is wrong I get Q4 revenue of 67 mil and EPS of -0.08. Unfortunately, that seems to negate the impression that they may be on a growth trajectory.
I am not sure why either. This is an excerpt of a comparison of the group:
"The EIA’s report has shown that oil refiners have been ramping up production as of late, and to reflect that the margins of all of these companies have to been going up. That having been said, Phillips 66 (PSX-US) is the top performer at the moment despite its relatively low EBIT margin. PSX has the top gross margin amongst its peers despite have unexpected refinery downtime, and has very strong dividends. Coupled with the fact that their most recent Q1 margins were the best they’re had in 2 years, their continual growth of their midstream services, and investments in pipelines makes Phillips 66 is one of the strongest refineries at the moment, and as such would make for a strong investment."
Bump and add:
+ June 10-12: Himax Technologies, Inc. to Attend Credit Suisse Asia Corporate Days in New York City and Boston
I think the poster meant for the CEO after he buys more shares. The CEO indicated he would buy more to keep his % stake the same. You are correct that there will be dilution for existing shareholders.
Yes that is still a nice backlog number. Looking at the 10K, it appears they may have some other legal issues behind them.
Take a look at the map with the locations that will be added with the People's acquisition. You will find it on the Horizon web site under investor relations / presentations / Raymond James Conf. That will really fit in nicely to the east.
