This whole thing starting with the first special dividend and then the second special dividend was
1. A bonus to the insiders who held about 2/3 of out standing shares
2. As you say an exit window
You could be correct on the $5 - $6 or maybe even a bit lower. Time will tell.
Rupert Hargreaves who wrote the article does not understand how REITS especally HCP handle their Capital structure. HCP has always used a combination of Debt and Equity to make acquisitions. This goes back to their beginning almost 30 years ago. They decide which to issue based upon their cost of capital, Debt to Equity ratio and cost of debt.
Just thought I would pass that along. Cheers
They pay a dividend whever they feel like it. After paying out about $8 millon in dividends in Jan or Jan/Feb can't recall I would be surpised if they announced another dividend next week. However, their second large dividend from the special $10 million dividend in payments approved by the board happened a lot sooner than I expected so one never knows.
Good luck next week when they announce earings.
While Defense Distributed, the Thingiverse for gun parts, has been working on a 3D-printed lower receiver for the AR-15 for some time now, they’ve finally announced that they’ve completed a real 3D-printed handgun called the Liberator. Made entirely out of 3D-printed ABS with the exclusion of a single nail used as the firing pin, it looks to be the fruition of DefDist’s mission to open source the gun-making process.
Forbes has an actual hands-on and has said that the founder, Cody Wilson, will release the open source plans on his site. It fires handgun rounds and can be modified to shoot different calibers.
They have also added a piece of steel so that the gun will be detectable by metal detectors, ensuring it complies with the Undetectable Firearms Act.
It’s hard to say how usable or how reliable this firearm will be, especially when ABS quality is iffy when it comes to various types of printers. However, with a good printer, good plastic, and a little luck this thing may not explode in your hand.
I am not as bearish as you. In fact I have no clue on where the price is going. I also have no long term investment in DWCH nor have I ever had one. I do think it is worth following.
I also was disappointed with the March quarter numbers. 4% YOY growth in quaraterly revenues does not cut it especially when you go from a small profit to an evern larger loss.
Show me the Carfax
Sometime partnerships benefit both companies and sometimes neither. I have worked for companies that have partnerships that generated very little in Revenues.
I want to see revenue growth at least equal to the growth in bigdata. I also want to see profit and not loss.
I don't buy the hype. Show me the Carfax.
Also setting up for a major H&S reversal if the price goes below $11.00
This stock is still a #$%$ shoot whose price is kept afloat by Morrison's hype.
Morrison has increased sales all of a whopping 4% over the last year and what was a profit is now a loss.
Of course he is buying. He belleves his own hype. Why wouldn't he?
He just keeps piling on one excuse after another and its always about the future. People like him are always saying "It will get better in the future, trust me" and each time when it doesn't they come up with another song and dance and why it will get better in the future. Show me the Carfax.
A profit would be nice Reaffirm estimated revenues between $6.5M and $7.0M with a GAAP EPS of $.05-$.10

Amazon: S3 cloud contains two trillion objects
'We've doubled our big number in a year'
By Jack Clark in San Francisco
Posted in Cloud, 18th April 2013 19:15 GMT
Amazon Web Services now has over two trillion objects within its S3 storage cloud, just one year after Bezos & Co. smashed through the one-trillion ceiling.
Each Amazon object, they say, can range from "range from zero to 5 TB in size," but Amazon does not disclose the size distribution of stored objects. An object consists of a key, a Version ID, a value, metadata, subresources, and access control information.
"It took us six years to grow to one trillion stored objects, and less than a year to double that number," Amazon wrote in a blog post announcing the milestone on Thursday. "Our universe is about 13.6 billion years old. If you added one S3 object every 60 hours starting at the Big Bang, you'd have accumulated almost two trillion of them by now."..................

Its also forming a H&S reversal pattern wih the neckline at about $11.00. Of course charts have to be taken with a grain of salt since a major news item can make the pattern meaningless.
We will know more come Feb 25th but it still may not be enough. We shall see.
EMC acquired Documetum in 2003 a decade ago.
Now EMC recommends DWCH for data mining data from Documentum
What this means is that DWCH has been mining data from Documentum for probably at least several years.
How big a deal the Paribus deal was is anyone's guess.
Was it a new deal or just more seats? Unknown
Absolutely it is a nice win. However, the point is the relationship between EMC Documentum is not new. That EMC recommended DWCH is nice. There are who knows how many billions of documents stored in legaqcy system computers across the world.
It was a nice win but nothing to get too excited about.
U don't know what you are talking about. I am long ATTU and have been for about 16 months. Target price remains $12.00 by Jan 2015.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
If it doesn't will you leave the board?
Love these Yahoo posters who think they know where the price of a stock is going. People that get paid some over $1 million a year can't accurately say where the price of the stock is going to be.
Of course one could get lucky and from then on all they will talk or post about is their lucky guesses and not all their incorrect ones.
Their revenue guidance for 2013 at their last CC was between $30 million and and $33 million. At this time I think $.30 $.40 per share diluted GAAP EPS for 2013 is more likely. However, $.50 is possible.especially if they hit or beat their $33 million in revenue which at this time I would not discount happening.
From reading the PR this new DWCH software appears to do the same thing I can do at home with free software.
