I am very disappointed. No one else -- with one exception -- has provided a predication for the share price in January, 2016.
This leads me to believe that no one on this message board is actually analyzing the company. It doesn't take a super computer to look at the company and see where it will be in twelve months.
The only one that has responded so far is gwocm03 (which will probably be another id in less than a year). It said they will be "trading around $2 pre split adj". That corresponds top $30 after the reverse split. Since LVLT is now at around $50 that would be a 40% drop in the share price.
So gwocm03 forcasts a 40% drop in share price and I am forcasting an 80% increase in share price -- from the current price we now have two options.
Those that support gwocm03 should say so. Those that support me should say so. The rest of you should just go in peace.
Come on -- there most be more than one other person willing to lay their reputation on the line and predict the share price of LVLT in January 2016. The highest number I have seen from the "pros" at this point is $63 (but not on this board). The lowest from the "pros" on this board is $30 (but that "pro" seems to make most of its money on its back). My prediction (actually forcast) is still $90/share.
Perhaps we should start a pool where you can place a bet? Sorry, I forgot that is the stock market.
We have twelve months to go -- put your money where your mouth is -- actually since this is a yahoo message board just put your mouth there.
Ah, another prediction for January 2016. So now we have three.
I cannot believe that there aren't more yahoo experts willing to put their reputations on the line by sharing their knowledge. Please note that I am not asking you to reveal your methodology -- just the results of applying it to Level 3. Here is your chance to shine and prove to the world (or at least the dozen or so people that follow this message board) that you can analyze a company and forecast what it will be worth twelve months from now.
If you have significant funds to invest and are willing to pay 2+20 I might consider it. Then again you shouldn't have to pay for it as it is already public information.
However, I appreciate another prediction:
This is a post bwocm03 made on July 22, 2010, a week after changing ids to gwocm03 -- which makes it impossible to research the posts made with the earlier ids to try and identify when he completely lost it:
LVLT closed that day at a split adjusted price of $16.50. It is now trading above $50.00. How can one person be so wrong for so long?
"Beware of the pale rider known as credit crunch who is rapidly approaching the gates to the Bloomfield campus. When the debt can no longer be financed or carried forward in 2011, following massive 3rd and 4th quarter losses, the sword will swing. Prior to the execution watch the major stake holders head for the tall grass. They should have paid attention to the "Oracle of Omaha" when he declined any further participation in LVLT after making millions in a short term bond deal with them"
Link to original post:
It is apparent that you do not know what cyclical means. The stock has more than tripled since gwocm03 (or you using a different id) made the post. That is not a “cyclical” move. That is a more than tripling over a four and a half time frame. $16.50 was near the five year low. The stock at over $50.00 is trading near its five year high. There is a cycle – an up and down wave whose average has been up for the last five years.
Any purchase five, four, three, etc. years ago is now in the money.
What is FWFCC? Who is Jesse? I have used the same id since I started posting.
So far it's still valid.
That the company was going out of business five years ago when instead its stock price more than tripled since then?
I'm betting you don't know what "Alpha" means.
Face it -- you have made bad calls on this stock for the last five years. It is time for your to switch ids again.
Sorry, your id only goes back to July, 2010. If you want to refernce posts before that you need to provide an id that was active then and a way to check the posts.
Your earliest post using the gwocm03 id is in July 2010 and it was so far off the mark to be pitied. You have been wrong for five years that are checkable. You have predicted the collapse of LVLT for five years during which the stock price has more than tripled.
BTW, who is this Jesse you seemed to be obsessed with? Is that one of your split personalities? Try and stay with just gwocm03 and lvlt_robber -- I don't think you can handle more than two.
Perhaps that explains it. The first five years as gwocm01, the next five years as gwocm02, and the last five years as gwocm03.
Was there a gwocm00? At least that ("00") would match its investment knowledge.
Whether you agreed with them or not Stewart and Colbert are (were) reasonably intelligent. That cannot be said of the Small Bus Riding Twins of Doom.
And has that been a straight up move over the 5 years? Not hardly. The stock
oes up and pulls back in a cyclical pattern that is very well documented. When
he stock peaks, it pulls back big time.
As I mentioned in my previsous post there have been ups and downs over the last five years. But anyone that bought the stock in the last five years is in the money.
fail to mention that in 5 years, the stock has doubled
Actually it has tripled in five years.
It is obvious that you don't know anything about investing. I understand that it must have been very painful when you lost your shirt on LVLT fifteen years ago. That has nothing to do with what the company is doing now.
Try to focus on the future instead of the past. Analyze the company as it is not as it was fifteen years ago.
I've quoted a post that your alter ego gwocm03 made in 2010. That is a fact. It is also a fact that the post's predictions were completely wrong.
How about referencing a post by either of your identiies in the last five years that has correctly predicted anyting about LVLT.
Posting a number of times each day with multiple ids over a five year perioe should yield at least one correct prediction. Prove you're not a bot -- post a link to ONE correct prediction about LVLT. Just one -- is that too much to ask?
Why don't you use current data:
Settlement Date Short Interest
The short interest in under six million shares from a high of over twenty million shares the end of October.
Mine comes from Nasdaq. Go there and check the short interest. BTW, if you look at the numbers, I have the same ones for the dates you used -- the difference is I included all of the dates from 10/31/2014 to 1/30/2015.
You only used old numbers. But then you are usually out of date aren't you?
You do realize that NOLs can only be used to reduce taxes when you are making a profit like now. Oh, I forgot, you are still stuck in 2010 when you predicted the collapse of Level 3. Since then the stock price has more than tripled. You do understand triple -- three times as much?
You have been wrong since you created your latest id. It is time to change ids -- time for gwocm04 -- so your absolute failure to understand this company cannot be checked as the posts from gwocm03 will be unreachable.
Like my post said: If you want to be paranoid...
Being paranoid you took the post literally -- not as satire.
