you need to focus on revenue less service cost or even better yet total transactions. those are up 59% for hotels in 2015 and 36% for air travel in 2015. those are better indications of end demand.
its so early in the online game in india that to focus on net income at the expense of market share would be foolish. every single big winner in the internet space won the market share game first and foremost. think AMZN, PCLN, NFLX, etc etc
what are you talking about? their revenue less service cost margins are growing rapidly. see below for hotels / packages:
2011: 14.6% of gross revenues
Stephen Deakin, interim chief technology officer at the Met, told El Reg at the police tech provider TASER Summit: "We are accelerating the procurement process at the request of the Commissioner and Deputy Mayor."
In the next couple of months, the Met will begin the process of procuring 10,000-30,000 cameras, he said. "Our ambition is to become the most transparent police in the world."
30,000 x $99/month x 12 = $35.6Million
There are 129,584 full-time equivalent ( FTE ) police officers in the 43 police forces of England and Wales as of 3/31/13. If they only get 13,000 officers at an average of $30/month then it's still a $5M per year storage deal. They're on verge of winning the NYPD deal too, which is another 30k officers. Revenues are on verge of going parabolic higher.
The fact is FCAU does nearly as much in revenues as F and GM yet trades at 1/3 their market caps. Half of the mkt cap of FCAU will be spun out through Ferrari so really it does nearly as much in sales with 1/6 their market caps. The other two don't have a premier luxury brand like Ferrari so what FCAU is left with ex-Ferrari is essentially the same as F and GM.
Why the huge discrepancy in value? Easy. Too many inefficiencies. With a buyout from a larger automaker (mkt cap-wise) FCAU will get rid of a lot of those inefficiencies and become a cash cow for the acquirer.
The writing is on the wall. If you bail now you're selling yourself way short.
If you don't think Sergio is going to ink a deal on a merger / buyout with another large automaker, you're nuts. This man is a deal maker through and through. It's in his blood, in his DNA. He owns about 1.5% of the company and has every intention to merge out the remaining piece of the business ex-Ferrari (ie Jeep, Maserati, Ram, Chrysler etc). I guarantee it.
You're best not to fall into the trap of the people too impatient to see this thing through to the end. This move here from $11 to $16 is just phase 1. Phase 2 will be the move to the mid $20's before the year is out.
I laugh in your faces. Let's see what is your latest worry? It has risen too much? Hmm...its actually only up about 30% in the past year. Despite Jeep sales booming and a small catalyst in the form of THE FERRARI IPO. Please go ahead and get scared, sell your shares. Just remember when it gaps higher and runs without you to $25 that I laughed at your selling.
I keep looking at this one. Are shorts / bears really expecting this to drop below a 7 p/e? Just curious what the rationale is. Also why is this EPS multiple so much lower than even RJET ALK let alone the bigger ones like JBLU LUV SAVE? Is it lack of growth and/or short operating history? I've never flown these guys but have heard some really good things about them.
Thanks for feedback.
Well, if pre-tax and EBITDAR keep growing anything like they have the past 3 quarters then your 13 p/e is probably a little too low. They did:
Q1 from -12MM to +200k
And this was before Oil dropped 50%+
You should look at price to book comparisons as well. PTRY, MUSA, IMKTA, CASY all trade at over 2x Book value while TA trades at exactly book value. This most likely has to do with lower net margins for TA; however, TA's margins have been trending up significantly.
Just came across this company. Seems from a cursory search that doctors rave about Exparel. Is this a potential buyout target? Seems like they might have a blockbuster drug on hand. What competitive threats do they have on the horizon?
hi there - sorry about not getting back to you. i was traveling overseas. Unfortunately i didn't add to my GPRC when it was down around $2.6 when I was away but the chart still looks great. Continues to stair step higher and higher. A breakout is coming soon.
He has actually been pretty spot on with his bigger picture call for the market the past 18 months. He calls for corrections from time to time but if you follow him closely he still thinks this is a longer term bull market and has been saying so since s&p 1200 at a time when most were bearish
