Yes you can, it's called "Fluff."
A PR is not the same as Advertising.
Ever heard the "Boy who cried wolf" story? TRTC's job isn't to keep putting out fluff to keep the message board junkies happy and pump it, their job is to run the company.
No need for puff PRs.
It'll be stagnant until earnings unless they have real news. I'm even expecting a less than stellar Q1, barely meet or miss estimates. I'll rebuy after that point - Q2 numbers will be where the beef is.
Buddy, I'm a prior-verizon/now-frontier customer and it came out of nowhere. Verizon didn't keep constant communication to their customers about the deal.
Unless you keep on top of things like this it was very easy for John Q. Public to miss this until it happened.
I'm sure you, as a FTR stockholder, knew about it and it was on your radar, but for non-stockholders it wasn't in the forefront of anyone's mind. I know many customers(co-workers and neighbors) who had no idea this was happening, until 4/1 when it happened.
Like it or not, it's been hell for a lot of customers. You can deny it all you want and call people bashers, but the truth is, it's been less than smooth and Frontier will need to do damage control.
Like it or not the switchover from Verizon to Frontier has been less than smooth for many customers.
The DFW area (at least where I am) has had a lot of issues. People lost connectivity for days, lots of billing issues that are similar to beatty_shms, one neighbor said Frontier didn't have a contract for him, but still wanted to charge him a cancellation fee.
Personally, I haven't had one of these issues, my bill is the same, and haven't noticed any connectivity issues, but investors be aware there is a very real negative reputation building from many irritated long-time verizon customers who are having issues during this transition.
The only issue I can complain about is since they haven't finished the crossover, I missed out on the Free HBO this past weekend that many other people received.
If you don't know what Par Value means you shouldn't be trading stocks.
Par Value DOES NOT have anything to do with the MARKET VALUE(or Price) of a stock
If you bough at those prices I sure as heck hope you're taking your capital off the table at least.
Sell 25% of your shares, get your capital out and let the free shares ride.
Google IRS and MJ Dispensaries.
IRS will gladly take their chunk of taxes, even if it's not legal at the federal level.
If you remember your history books, the IRS is what finally took Capone down for tax evasion - on his illegal ventures.
From what I'm reading there is a grey area, and some banks are allowed, with stringent rules to accept cash.
Alternatives are Credit Unions, but still has to be all cash- no electronic/wire payments.
.38-.39, maybe a few cents lower.
I'd be very surprised if this closed green today. I think the 4/20 opening is priced in, barring any NEW news it'll jump back to the .40s next week and stay there for a while (bouncing around +/- .05-.10).
I don't see it jumping over .50 until we see some solid numbers to support the rise.
If I understand correctly, it's perfectly legal for them to deposit cash sales into a bank account as long as it's within the state laws. All dispensaries do this.
It has to be cash-only though, cannot do credit card/electronic transactions with MJ because of federal laws.
At a recent tax conference, I learned in Washington, dispensaries had to take their tax payments to Olympia in cash(via Armored truck I'm sure) since it couldn't be paid electronically.
Agreed, will be up and down until 4/20; should get a spike then.
Showing some nice support at these levels so far.
Sadly, $30 at this point would put me at break even.
Fortunately, I'm holding a paltry sum of shares as it is. Given the red I'm in I haven't been keeping up with OMEX and this recent spike has me a little disappointed I didn't average down weeks ago to get in on the action.
Nevertheless I'll continue to hold because I have nothing to gain from selling right now.
It has not took a years worth of growth off the stock price. If you bought a year ago, you'd still be up ~30-40%.
Just bad time for the market, this too shall pass.
This is exactly why I sold half of my position the other day in the 11's.
Stock up 100% in less than a year, bad market, it was due for a pullback.
Insider sales would not cause that drop- not on their own anyway.
Wouldn't be surprised if this dropped below 8 before rebounding to it's current level (High 8 to low 9).
Holding long, will rebuy if it touches 7.50.
