Sterling's Small to Mid Cap Value team is based in Charlotte and our approach is fundamental, bottom-up and value-oriented. The strategies identify stocks of quality companies selling at large discounts to the underlying value of the business. Sterling refers to its philosophy as an “owner’s approach” to investing which asks the same questions that a potential owner would ask if he were to enter into a private purchase transaction. This approach examines all factors relevant to the intrinsic value of the business using traditional fundamental security analysis; however, we emphasize these six key factors:
Free Cash Flow
Return on Invested Capital
Durable Competitive Advantages
Balance Sheet Strength
In sum, Sterling focuses on finding exceptional businesses with quality management whose stocks are selling at attractive prices. Quality businesses are defined as those that generate substantial levels of free cash flow, have numerous reinvestment opportunities at attractive returns, and enjoy competitive advantages.

did you read the same report I did? and read the CC transcript? Disaster. Guidance of almost no growth and decreased profits. No IP. 20% of clients are oil/gas. Bad geographical area. Highly overstaffed in comparison to peers; they need a 20% layoff.
Fine. Many companies limit you to 10% of your 401K in the company stock. Why kick out people who are in? Why not just bar new investments or limit to 10%? Why kick them out of CDK which has had a great run?
I think the real reason is ADP does not know how to admin stocks in their 401K and/or they make no fees of it. ADP likes to gouge their employees with fees on their 401K investments. They also didn't credit employees with the CDK dividend. How can ADP admin 401K's for other companies when they can't cheaply and accurately admin them for their own company?
agreed. If they miss and guide lower, it hits new lows. SBNY had a great report and has moved higher. I therefore conclude that chances are 80/20 for TAXI to move higher from here
Nice to see just days before they announce earnings. Any issues with Uber won't show up in last quarters numbers and that will be a serious blow to shorts. Short interest is down slightly but still substantial. Good earnings and outlook could create a short squeeze
Here's the math numbnuts:
25,000 shares CLCT bought at $11.50, sold at avg $24 = $312,500 profit. Also 7 X 32.5c dividends = $56,875.
RVM 80c loss (not realized) X 50,000 shares = $40,000 loss. I think I did OK last year.
The fact that you have a Roth IRA indicates you are poor and don't make yearly earnings to not qualify to participate in a Roth.
that's it? 15K shares? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
and you still haven't shown us the $2.30 buys, the $2.40 buys, the $2.80 buys, the $3.50 buys, the $4 buys.
we all remember when you said you were buying at those price. You are getting crushed here. I feel sorry for you. Not really
far less shares then you said you had. Oh I see, you didn't mention the $4 buys, the $3.80 buys. How nice
If those are your lowest price purchases, you are waaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy under water.
FYI - right on their corporate presentation it identifies Renault as a "past customer"
with dilution coming to avoid a GOING CONCERN, the P&D will be in full throttle. you can expect:
- article(s) from SA fooling the ignorant and suckers
- more comments from Zack's
- days with tremendous volume which will real in suckers
- possibly more vague PR's by the company
- a slew of new id's on the yahoo board promoting the company
wasn't just a week or two ago this was at $1.80. Actually hanging tough despite being down slightly.
