you would think the proxy "Uber Long" would be a short of Avis and Hertz, not a short of TAXI. In a longer term thought process, rental cars would go away. Autonomous driving and Uber will replace the need for rental. Avis and Hertz are essentially over levered used car companies with questionable financials (Hertz is restating 3 years and hasn't filed in over a year) and they are more liquid than TAXI. Neither pay a dividend. If I was an Uber long, I would go after the rental companies, not TAXI.
higher grades lead to higher future warranty claims. Higher grades also lead to a lower reputation for the company which would lead to lower future submissions. You want the right grades, not higher grades.
final February numbers: 162,752 vs 223,886 last year, 61K falloff. Cards are just 1K ahead of last year for February. 27%+ falloff in volumes folks. There was a price increase of 5%-10%. Obviously the price increase does not make up for the lost volume.
Warranty claims of $147K for last 30 days is also huge considering normal yearly claims are under $500K. so if claims were to continue at this pace for 1 year, it would be over $1.7M. The high warranty claims essentially wipe out the price increase leaving a 27%+ falloff.
Rockport filed a late 13D yesterday and exited their entire position which they opened in 2010
On November 20, 2014, the Reporting Persons distributed in kind an aggregate of 322,695 shares of CDTI Common Stock held by the Reporting Persons on a pro rata basis to their respective partner and members (the “Distribution”). As a result of the Distribution, the Reporting Persons are no longer the beneficial owner of shares of CDTI Common Stock.
This is the final amendment to the Schedule 13D and constitutes an “exit filing” for the Reporting Persons.
interesting that this coverage was already on the Cowen site and CDTI home page already. This upgrade must have been "internally" announced last week and that is why the stock ran above $2 to $2.35.
this may be it:
United States Patent 7,746,379
Jesson , et al. June 29, 2010
Sensing cargo using an imaging device
A camera is used to sense cargo in a cargo space. An image of at least a portion of a cargo space is captured using the camera, and a digital signal processor classifies the image as representing an empty cargo space or a non-empty cargo space. Additionally, a type of cargo represented by the captured image may also be classified by the digital signal processor and an indication of the type of cargo output.

but if someone bought a medallion 20-30 years ago and is retiring now and sells it, won't they have a large gain? So didn't they get enriched too?
Lynne is just talking smack. The only person under investigation is her grifter husband who has an official Bench Warrant out for his arrest. As guess by talking smack against others it helps her get through the day
with 10-12 employees, they could go on for years and years. Maybe they burn $100K/month tops.
They bought Troy for like $20M and the reserves there now are about the same as it was when they bought it. Could always sell Troy to someone. They have millions worth of equipment they could sell. The crusher etc. They have $1M+ in ore they just mined. They have millions in land they purchased and still hold.
just a few days ago you said it was going to $1.83
Remember all that volume a week or two ago and the stock at $2.30+? That was Cowen buying in bulk so as to sell to their customers. This will push through that level soon enough
I may not like this company but they sure do know how to raise funds and sell their stock
I don't get this PR. Komatsu was a customer yesterday and apparently will be a customer tomorrow. Big whoop. Why is that news? Were the terms changed? Are they adding more units or a change to the per unit charge?
Cowen placed the $4M last November and collected their fee. Obviously this is their quid pro quo. Here are the clean energy companies this Cohen analyst covers:
