15K coins yesterday, now at 235K for the month (237K is all-time record) and 94K in past 7 days.
Records will be shattered this month. Any other company would come out with a PR and say that. Not these guys. I'm sure even there earnings release will have barely a mention of "coins coming in ahead of expectations"
CoinWorld reports 2000 dealers and 10,700 in attendance at this years FUN. I looked up the 2014 year (the record yr) and there were 620 dealer tables and 11,000 people in attendance. So a small decrease in folks in attendance. Do not know how 2000 dealers translates into tables but I suspect more than 1 dealer per table.
BTW - don't take the fact that this is a "hidden" company as a bad thing. With so much info available to so many nowadays, consider this a hidden gem. I made well into the 6 figures trading this due to this fact. This company is obscenely open. They tell you everyday how many coins/cards they graded. Imagine if Apple told you everyday how many iPhones/iPads/Macs they sold. It almost seems this company falls out of favor when it is doing well and surges during a slowdown as evidenced by short interest. Latest short interest was up 40K shares to 160K just as the company is surging. Short interest was at a record when the stock surged to $25 yet that was exactly when volumes were declining.
You then have idiots like beefstu who emerge at the low point and hide at the high points; they are in fact wrong at the worst times which makes them the perfect contra indicator.
So use a low stock price and a surging company to your advantage. You get paid 9% to wait a few months.
I predict back to 18+ by June, a 20% move while making a 9% yield.
we are the only folks in the world that know this. No analysts follow it. Very little retail following. Folks won't know until they publish earnings
yet when I tried pointing out all their flaws to you 2 years ago, you derided me. The whole TSX/TLX PR was a joke. The SA articles were a joke. Yet you guys were the biggest chearleaders
As goes the Mint, so goes PCGS. US Mint in this January is already 30% of last January's gold total and 10% of the silver total. Blended avg of 20% ahead, exactly the same as PCGS
forgot to mention - he is a total stalker. Been stalking me for 15 years now. Keeps track of every post I write, every opinion I have. Gets upset if new info comes in and causes me to change my mind. The guy is a total psycho
From CDTI SEC filing DEF 14A:
Who will pay for the cost of this proxy solicitation?
CDTi will pay the cost of soliciting proxies. Proxies may be solicited on our behalf by Directors, officers or employees in person or by telephone, electronic transmission and facsimile transmission or by other means of communication. Directors, officers or employees will not be paid any additional compensation for soliciting proxies. We may also reimburse brokerage firms, banks and other agents for the cost of forwarding proxy materials to the beneficial owners.
We have retained D.F. King to act as proxy solicitor for the Special Meeting for a fee of $8,500 plus reasonable out-of-pocket expenses.
Is there a list of stockholders entitled to vote at the Special Meeting?
The names of stockholders of record entitled to vote at the Special Meeting will be available at the Special Meeting and for ten days prior to the Special Meeting for any purpose relevant to the Special Meeting, by contacting the Secretary of CDTi.
So they have your name and it is available for anyone to see. Would be easy to figure out who spanspur is if anyone cares to
Repurchases of common stock for treasury: $3.228B
From the CC:
During the quarter, we spent $1.3 billion on share repurchases. This reflects our accelerated stock repurchase program. For the full year, we spent $3.2 billion on repurchases and lowered outstanding shares by 151 million shares. We ended the year with $4.6 billion of cash, with approximately $1 billion in the U.S.
i have been called by a proxy solicitor. It is SOP for companies in their predicament. I really think someone with such little experience as yourself should not be in such a stock as this.
You realize companies have lists of their shareholders, right? The can get names from Schwab and then figure out the phone numbers. It's not hard. they are probably not calling folks with 1000 or less shares as it is just not worth it.
put in context though, a 5% move in VZ is huge. This isn't a high flyer, it is a boring telecom. The stock has basically been between $42-$50 for a year now
is this a serious question? CDTI has almost ZERO investment by institutions. What institution would invest in a near BK company, shrinking sales, revolving management, GOING CONCERN for 2 years, and never a profit?
Insiders own almost a de-minimus amount as well. So 95% of the shares are owned by retail. And they have to call those folks 1 investor at a time. I am guessing the vast majority have written this off and are telling the solicitor to F off
this guy has no stake in this company. He was long years ago as he bought at the secondary of $22.75. He was touting it going to $50. He couldn't have been more wrong. I was short at that time and I crushed him. He lost a vast majority of his meager wealth. He is a 70+ yr old guy who does not understand technology. Why would anyone listen to him?
why pay down debt? the avg cost is like 3% and they get 1/3 of that back due to the fact they can write that off. Better to reinvest in the company and/or make some buys like AOL or maybe the core of Yahoo.
they did 21K coins yesterday, now at 220K for the month of January and 90K in past 7 days (a new all-time record)
