    Today's ELTK press release... in error?

    What about the mini-heart attack is caused me? Just kidding... thanks for confirming. Seems a name change/tweak might be in order by one or both companies?

    And, yes, along with everyone else, I am very much looking forward to seeing the upcoming earnings report. Hopefully, the momentum in sales/earnings continues.

  • I'm guessing that today's press release is incorrect... and that they are actually referring to a company called Eltec ASA (ELT)... on the OSLO Stock Exchange? From THAT company's website... Facts Headquarters: Drammen - Norway Listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange under the ticker ELT Regional headquarters: Dallas, Drammen, Singapore. The company I'm referring to does show a past press release referencing... a potential deal with Nera Telecommunications Ltd (NeraTel) where the company informed that it has received an expression of interest....

  • Maybe BRSS will get some lovin'? Let's hope so. It certainly was ignored when the growth stocks (amazon, priceline, netflix type of stocks) were in favor.

  • Looks like he bought (with his own money) about $40,000 worth of stock the past week. I was hoping he would do that. Always nice to see management with some skin in the game. Also nice to see the stock back in the .20's. Hey, it's a start.

    Rough week for BRSS...

    Conference call didn't reveal too much we didn't know. Some areas of their business are doing well, while some aren't. I continue to hold onto my shares... as I think there is decent value here. Hoping we get more wall street coverage/interest going forward. This is certainly not the most interesting stock/company out there! But... every portfolio needs to have some of these type of stocks in it.... or so I think.

    Good question. There is so little information out there on this company. Hopefully, that will change going forward. Giving it a quick glance... it looks like they slightly beat on revenues for the quarter and earnings were a bit light. Will listen to the conference call tomorrow for more perspective. I don't see any major shor term catalysts... with the exception that the Billionaire hedge fund guy might keep buying up shares. Obviously, if the U.S. decides to switch to coins instead of paper money.. that would be HUGE for BRSS.

    Anyone receive their proxy?

    Have not received my proxy yet.
    Another 2 million shares just went thru. Wonder if that's Iroquois... and if they are buying or selling?
    Sure seems that if NHLD management would just tell us more info about the takeover offers on the table, the stock price would take care of itself... and there wouldn't be a need to do a R/S.

    Still can't believe I picked a company/stock that has an activist shareholder interested in the company... and that has not pushed the stock up at all. Amazing.

    I'm guessing BRSS has been weak this past week due to China and declining copper/brass prices? Love the price to sales on the stock right now... seems very cheap to me. The stock just seems to be under the radar of most investors... as they don't release a whole lot of news/updates. And, frankly, the stock has only been trading for a short time... so perhaps people are still trying to get their arms around what they do and how to value it? I find the stock as an intriguing play on construction growth in the U.S. I think the warm temps are going to spike growth in a lot of industries here this spring.

    The gloves that Cramer was wearing were those of a competitor... bummer...
    Oh well... not a biggee...

  • brockabrella by brockabrella Mar 10, 2014 6:20 PM Flag

    that it sure looked like Cramer (CNBC) was wearing a pair of KONG gloves while doing his segment from a top an oil rig during tonight's show? Maybe we'll get a better look as the show continues...

  • (My opinion of what they would have said) The company showed solid progress in 2013 with improving sales, earnings, business, and fundamentals. And, the full impact of the acquisition of Gilman Ciocia has yet to be seen. They believe that 2014 will continue to show solid improvements in all areas of their business. They will say that they can't comment on acquisition rumors. They will say that they are always considering new acquisition targets. They will also say that they are not sure adding members from a Hedge Fund to the Board would add much benefit to shareholders.

    And, honestly, I kind of agree with them! I think they will deliver excellent numbers in 2014. The new management team appears to have turned the ship around. And, yes, it does take time to do that. I think the current quarter will blow last year's numbers away... and set the tone for a very strong 2014.

    However, this is the thing we all have an issue with... and that is HAVE THERE BEEN OFFERS ON THE TABLE to acquire NHLD? We all deserve to know the answer to that.

    So, in summary.... I think the Hedge Fund boys are looking for a quick profit (hey, that's their game). So I am not ure I agree with all they said about current management's running of the business. However, YES, I support them for putting pressure on the company to share pertinent info regarding takeover offers.

    Thoughts?

    No clue who the new industrial power transmission client is. Wish they had the conference calls later in the day.... so that more people could listen/participate.

  • Who is selling? And why? A bit frustrating...

  • And, yes, I am thinking that all of us would also like to know about any acquisition offers that are/were on the table. It's nice to have muscle on our side for a change.

  • I was expecting a small loss. They seem to have managed the storm nicely. The new KONG line of gloves were flying off the shelves! Nice. New CEO seems, at first glance, a deeper understanding of what they need to do to get the company to the next step. For now, we can all breathe a little easier. Glad I did some more buying in the 15 cent range the month or so. Now... we wait....

    Well said. I'd love to hear more about whether there is any interest in licensing Ironclad's name? It's a great name/logo. Or maybe there is interest... but not at the right price at the moment? Agree that 1st quarter and 2014 guidance (if they offer any) will be the most important topic.

    Not trading today?

    brockabrella brockabrella Mar 5, 2014 12:02 PM Flag

    She's trading now! Up a quick 15 cents as volume starts to build ahead of earnings...

  • I like what they are doing... bringing in some new blood... with much more experience than what they had. Hopefully, they will be able to take this company to the next level... and take sales into the 100's of million per year.
    It's been a while since we've seen the .20's! It's a start.

    No way to know for sure. They have done a C.C. for each quarterly release for several years. I'm sure investors would like to hear from the new CEO. We'll know for sure by the end of the month... one would think.

    And remember... that tax business they just acquired will have their busiest quarter coming up! Well timed. Tax business will likely add about $40 million in sales in the next year. Yes... 2014 is gonna be a good year for NHLD shareholders.
