Wow ... "$18++ within hours" ... I am impressed and humbled! NOT ... BWLD closed today at nearly 3 times what I paid for it in Oct 2011 ... keep playing those short time trades since that will surely make someone rich - that person being your broker
Oh, no problem with me "GET"-ing you ... you chose to reply what you wanted to read in my response ... I repeat - since you apparently missed it the first time - PLEASE bet that way by shorting this stock with every dollar you have and the rest of us will be happy to profit from your mistake ... you are correct about ONE (and only one) thing ... I am NOT neutral ... I favor stocks that make money for me - I've been in BWLD about 3.5 years with an annualized return of over 33% - my recent analysis does not show it growing that fast, but easily in double digits - again I repeat PLEASE short this one
Wishing for a stock split - here or elsewhere - is just silly. A stock split is neither more nor less than a marketing ploy on the part of the company. They are betting that there are investors that are so poor at math that they do not realize an investment of (say) $1,000 in a company gives them neither more nor less of it regardless of the number of shares it represents.
You want a dividend stock, sell ORLY and buy a bank or utility stock! Been in this stock for about 4.5 years and it has grown at a rate of 37% per year. With that kind of growth, I can easily do without dividends.
If that's what you think, PLEASE bet that way by shorting this stock with every dollar you have (making of course the unlikely assumption that you actually HAVE any dollars) ... the rest of us will be happy to take losses
I also have it as a buy and project it to double in about 5 years ... OTOH, it is only up about 10% from Feb 2011 - which says it dropped dramatically between then and now ... so, there is always the chance it will do what it did in late 2012 and drop over 50% ... in that earnings report on 22 Apr, GNTX exceeded 'expectations' FWIW, but only barely
Really??!! At the closing price when you posted this comment, a P/E ratio of 13.69 on next year's earnings would imply earnings next year of about $6.00. That weed you get must be some fantastic stuff! If you make all your investment decisions with that kind of acumen, enjoy your time in the poor house.
You are of course an idiot. No company whose stock you buy EVER costs you money. If you lost money on a stock purchase, you made the decision or you defaulted the decision to someone else. In either case YOU cost yourself money.
For the record, I have never worked there. However, I have friends and relatives who have done so. None of them report it as the best possible employer - who ever does? Neither have any of them reported the kind of 'stuff' posted here. I have some questions for those claiming ESRX is a terrible employer.
If you haven't worked for them, why do you care?
If you do work for them, why don't you get a different job?
If you did, but no longer, work for them, how long are you going to let your evaluation of that experience dominate your life?
Do any of said posters REALLY believe comments like that on a message board for those interested in ESRX as a STOCK investment cares even a little what you think of them as an employer? [If you do, you are highly delusional, and should seek professional help.]
If you were unfairly treated by ESRX, why have you not taken them to court?
I have been invested in ESRX over 20 years and the annual rate of return on those investments has been about 27%. That trumps any anonymous noise from folks who cannot distinguish between investment information and personal supposed slights.
Thanks for letting us know. Everyone has been holding their breaths waiting for that information.
If you are actually making stock purchase decisions based on what your read on this - or any - message board, you are incredibly naive, incredibly stupid, or both. You would do as well by rolling dice.
Well, I was smart enough to invest in ESRX over 20 years ago and watch it return over 27% per year since then. As for your imminent demise, it will be what it will be. Since I do not know you, you get credit for being right about EXACTLY ONE thing - I don't care.
Really? ... and yet you slam them and are still alive and posting! Well, I guess they are not very good at "[taking] your life" Thankfully, they ARE very good at growing the value of the stock.
Well, you may or may not have an accurate view of working for the company. I have known two who worked for them and did not get that opinion from them. I suggest that you NOT work for ESRX. OTOH, as an investment ... my ANNUAL growth rate on my shares is in excess of 27%, so I guess I don't really care if you are right or wrong about working for them.
codylacy ... well, if you're so sure of yourself, then short AAPL - after all, you'll make a bundle when it hits that 75-80 range --- please do this and encourage all your like-thinking friends to do the same.
I LOVE a good short squeeze!
