White/Jirgs, is this crazy or what? How long have we watched this stock flounder in the 1's and 2's and heaven forbid in the
I just sold per my wealth management guy 3000 more shares at 3.00/share. I'm going to kick and scream if this thing hit's 5 anytime soon on those lost profits :) now I'm down to a measily 10,100 shares. Profit so far (2.08 cost basis) - 2.50 - 2.08 x 2000 + 3.00 - 2.08 x 3000 = 840 + 2760 = 3600. Chump change, man you just have to have like 100K shares or more to really make any money on this thing.
we'll my limit order of 2K shares just hit at 2.50 so I've lost out on a 300 dollar gain just like that. Man coulda shoulda woulda bought huge volumes of this company years ago when it was under a buck :). Kind of sad but you have to really have 100,000 of shares to really make any decent money. Rich get richer right.
Jirgs, what do you make of this move up today - summer time doldrums and thought the good earnings report would have died down, do you think this is a rumor of a big PR or just follow-through from the earnings report, weird to me.
sell 2000 out of my 15000 shares and take a profit. I've been holding these shares for something like 5 years at a cost position of 2.08 and he wanted a limit order of 2000 shares at 2.50. He razzed me about that rate of return, of course I've made more money in my portfolio since joining him by holding LRAD than anything he's done yet so who's the expert :) Investment guys hate micro-caps.
Oops was I dead wrong, after hours trading up on price anyway like crazy. See if any of this holds up in the am, would be good if big institutional money starting flowing. My investment guy wants me out of this/at least take some profit.
that 11 cents on tiny volume of 9000 shares, wouldn't pay any attention to it. See where things are tomorrow but wouldn't expect much pop - as Jirgs says this company just isn't covered well, witness the 10 minute or less Q&A session, kind of a joke.
I'm in a dark place right now :) so negative outlook on the whole world, sleep deprived after a week of my sons boy scout camp and hearing #$%$ and other varmits all night long sniffing around the tent/camp. Would have killed for a pair of night vision goggles/camera and a muzzled low caliber pistol capable of killing anything that size and smaller and scaring the hell out of the deer that walked unabated through camp all night long. I'm glad I'll be able to call in for this call and I will plan to say something about challenging. C out.
Yea, true true for sure. I predict a disaster of a telecom tomorrow, ugly 4Q of less than 1MUSD in revenue and year over year revenue negative growth. Stock price on Friday's close 1.40.
Yea, man just don't know what I ever saw in this company. Here our southern border needs a perimeter fence built, we know LRAD's used for border security in middle east and yet this company sits in SD and can't crack that market. Just seems like so many opportunities and yet so little growth, unreal.
yea, all I can tell you is i'm getting on this earnings call and screaming at Brown as to why we don't have more 4Q PR's. JOke. This is supposed to be the biggest spend based on Gov't budgets... and we don't have any substantive PR's for tis quarter and it's a 1/3 of the way over. And they announce that #$%$ PR about winning some popularity contest - like others have said you just don't make PR's like that in this environment, just stupid. ORDERS idiots and BIG ones,, not fluff.
geez, I must be missing something. They must have annouced orders impacting the last quarter during 2nd Q. Seemed to me there was NOTHING going on in Q3 - like 1MUSD in total sales that Quarter. How are they getting to Jirgs your 6 for the Quarter? Where are the PR's that go with that? Telling you 4Q is going to be a HUGE bust. Not one single PR about any substantive business for 4Q (OR again are there orders for 4Q that were announced in 3Q. tired going to sleep :)
Lovely, is this a new low and all this excitement about a big 4Q and a strong 3Q - yeehaw. Boom, explosion. Course our little engine keeps adding cash to the balance sheet from operations and retained earnings - hey better than losing money every Q.
good point BUT cmon Jirgs how many years have the basic LRAD's been on the market, 10 to 20. If they were truly that revolutionary in terms of innovation and customer value then we'd be in a whole different situation. THIS IS NEVER GOING TO BE APPLE Folks. Run for the freaking exits.
we've been down this road with the cEO revolving door. I'll admit particularly in a smaller company the cEO can have a big influence, BUT to me it's the head of sales, the R&D focus and product development gang. Look if the product is different/novel enough and of sufficient value/price to drive a sourcing change or new adoption rate, then revenue will grow, it's that simple. Either the company is mired in products that just aren't that incrementally attractive, it's horrible at sales and marketing and being in touch with the market, or they're way out of whack in the V = RPQ/Price formula. It's that simple. I don't know honestly what it is. We talk about that big order but it never comes. The rest of my investments are moving on with big companies making big profits and stuffing their balance sheets with retained earnings and cash from OPERATIONS that is driving up shareholder value. Folks this is a freaking start-up that NEVER had an explosive growth curve in the market. Look at the numbers and you'll see it. Products go through a product life cycle, and we never have seen that real early strong growth curve in my mind where the companies revenue should have grown from low millions to 5 to 10 to 15 to 20 to 25 to 30 ..... Something just isn't right here. They scramble to create new products like the 360 but it's the same old story. They seem to be better at creating new products but those new products just never really "take off" in the market - and don't give me that #$%$ answer about military spending - geez brown that message is so old. Out.
how do you know how much finished or WIP inventory they have? Or are you just saying this in general?
is just not going to happen. Have to have the orders ship by 9/30 and we're nearly at 8/1 in a couple of weeks, uh, just thinking this 4Q could be a bust - haven't announced a single order this quarter so far.
oh, and I'm 50 tomorrow so the 50MUSD would be appropriate. Lets see if the stars align. Can you imagine the look on the new PR guys face if independently he had planned to make this announcement, what he'd be thinking - who the hell is this guy on Yahoo message boards :)
