    Higher Closes

    They have till 5-15-15 to file for Q1.....even though they filed on the 16th last quarter, technically a day late. Most file before that and WF could file early. Dalton Grenier has already filed and can't remember the number but they actually sold a few thousand shares. DaninFW

    Today marks 5 trading days in a row where EVC closed higher than the previous day. I am starting to get worried as our bashers appear to be gone. They were actually buying while bashing. Need to see them bashing again so we can keep going higher.

    It's hard to believe that this sector could double or triple in next 12-18 months. But, I am reading more articles where additional lawsuits could put the auction off another 6-12 months which I think would actually be good in terms of bidders having more time to generate bid funds. A group representing over 1,000 LPTV owners proposed yesterday that they be given double and perhaps triple tax credits to sell their stations after the auction. They threatened to file a lawsuit if not given the credits to delay the auction. However, if given the credits this will be a big plus for the sector. One group could sell spectrum and then buy the LPTV stations to get the double and triple tax credits to reduce tax liability for funds received from the auction. May be why sector is up today. Gets more interesting every day. DaninFW

    AT&T has already committed to buy at least $9 billion. They just take on debt or sell towers or non-core assets. It has been rumored for at least 2 years that Apple, Microsoft and Google would bid in the 2016 auction. DISH has already said they will be a buyer as well. DaninFW

    Announcement today that Google is offering wireless phone service for $20 a month tells me they will be a serious bidder for spectrum next year. Just waiting now for Microsoft and Apple to announce the same. You do have to have spectrum to provide wireless........DaninFW

    The current BOD's are going to be spending all their time trying to keep their high paid board seats instead of focusing on getting company turned around. This is a big distraction till resolved. DaninFW

    Gamco has a history of doing selfish self-interest moves. They bought 18.5% of PBY because they didn't see what others had already seen about PBY. Pirate Capital and Barrington have already tried to take control of PBY by getting seats on the BOD's. The Barrington guy even got to be COB. He's still on the BOD's. If this stock pops on this news I would get out and re-enter when the noise dies down. Will be a great trading stock but this is a broken company with even more and more leases on marginal businesses. JMVHO. DaninFW

    It has been a long time in coming. Stock should spike up tomorrow but this may have more questions than answers. I suspect this is why the CEO search has taken so long. Gamco didn't just spring this today. The BOD's didn't support Gamco's recommendations and now it is a battle. Will be very interesting. But, the interests of Gamco is not the same as shareholders. May see a short term pop imvho but this company will take 18-24 months to fix and won't bring more than $10-11 a share in a buyout until fixed. Daninfw

    I too expect $3.50-$3.75 in 2015 and $4.25+ in 2016. Whippoorwill has been dumping or we would be $2-3 higher imvho. It looks like they have a presentation scheduled for tomorrow so we might get another bump. Daninfw

    You can bet Whippoorwill is still dumping. Don't have to report any longer since they went below 10%. DaninFW

    The big buyer Friday trying to buy 50,000 at $6.55 has now upped his bid to $6.61 for 50,000........he's now chasing the stock. Adding a lot of support. Might get interesting soon. DaninFW

    Good to hear from you again. I remember you. I too would not touch ORLY, DAP or AZO. PBY is in a different situation. It is the perennial turnaround story or buyout story. Has been for almost 20 years. Real estate is main support worth $9-10 and perhaps more now. We got a clue of that based on relocating a few stores or closing stores and selling the real estate this last quarter. The tax people just increased my appraisal for my personal home by $70,000 for this year after $50,000 last year. It is causing me to rethink PBY's real estate values. PBY's has been so poorly run and mismanaged it's pathetic. I said this year's ago when I posted a turnaround plan and offered to fix PBY's for $1 a year and options only if I got the stock price above $14. It can be done but time is running out. I am waiting to see who the CEO is going to be. DaninFW

    It's been a few years and I would have to research but I do remember buying 77,000 at one time. I usually trade 40,000-60,000 when I trade/buy. But, I usually buy 20,000-30,000 and if it pops I sell. If it drops I average down. DaninFW

    Based on history you should do okay. But, as I have said for a year or so now......if any of the big holders finally give up and dump it could get ugly. Gabelli has been supporting for almost two years now. I may miss out this time but I don't plan to buy until it bottoms and I see a narrow trading range for several days. I would rather it go up a dime or so and I buy then buy now and it drop 50 cents or dollar. DaninFW

    Wow, the analysts are now projecting sales in 2015 to be up 22%. They have raised EPS expect from just 7 days ago from $2.62 to $2.67. They were projecting only $2.48 just 30 days ag0. They now expect $2.71 in 2016 up from $2.52 just 7 days ago. They also show expect of $978.3 million in revenue in 2016. I expect well over one billion. A very hot stock. DaninFW
