"This one is part of the small cap funds that will multiple contraction"
Can you clarify this for us in a language that we will all understand? English perhaps?
I will presume a transition letter is exactly that. Why would you call it a transition letter otherwise? The stock is down 20% year to date from December 31, yet the company continues to announce positive news. This stock will be above $8.80 in the not too distant future.
The Braves have some decent players. It makes me think it is time for a new manager in the dugout. They sure don't want to play for Gonzalez anymore.
I remember the year that the Braves went from worst to first. This year will be the exact opposite. The Braves looked untouchable in April, and now the wheels have come off. They just played the Dodgers seven times and only won one, and Kimbrel almost gave that one away. I can't ever remember a team with as many players who strikeout as much as this Braves team, and they strikeout most with runners in scoring position. Good teams do all the little things to win, and this Braves team keeps inventing different ways to lose. Ownership needs to shake things up this winter and get a new general manager, and a new manager in the dugout. I'm not sure what message Gonzalez is sending his players, but apparently they didn't get the memo.
I got a chance to see your Braves play the Dodgers tonight on national television, and this time they got crushed at home. My opinion of the Braves seems to waver between bad and terrible. Right now I'm leaning towards terrible. They really need to make a start by replacing the general manager Frank Wren, and then find a replacement for the manager in the dugout Gonzalez. Good teams find ways to win, but the Atlanta Braves keep finding different ways to lose.
On a more positive note, at least Forbes didn't mention the Atlanta Hawks. Don't laugh. The Hawks will have a very good team if they can ever stay healthy, and they have a very good general manager. That is much more than you can say for the Atlanta Braves.
If the recent losing streak wasn't bad enough, Forbes came out and called Atlanta the most miserable sports city in the country.
It is too bad they don't play the World Series in April. Your Braves looked pretty good for a few weeks. It is unfortunate now that they are being exposed, and the defects with that team are glaring.
Evan Gattis seems to be a fan favorite in Atlanta, but I don't understand the fascination with this guy. The Braves should trade him to the AL if somebody needs a designated hitter, but this guy is a defensive liability as a catcher. Putting him in the outfield only exacerbates an already bad situation.
Your Braves can't hit in the regular season so I certainly wouldn't expect them to hit good, quality pitching in the playoffs. I know this will offend many Braves fans on this message board, but I don't think there will be any playoffs this year for the Atlanta Braves. They might not even hold off the Marlins for third place in the division.
This is probably a sore subject now, but what happened to your Atlanta Braves? It appears the wheels have come off and they are staggering for the finish line.
Tiger's weight gain and health problems weren't due to his marital or prostitute problems. His health issues started when he stopped taking steroids and other performance enhancing drugs. His problems all started around the same time, but his health issues really started when he came off the steroids.
Selling Osiris is the first thing you have said on this message board that makes good sense.
This won't stop hedge funds from shorting though. There weren't any large shareholders who ever thought Richard Pearson, or the chubby girl from Smutsweeper had any credibility.
I have a question for you as well. Why are you and others so insistent that this company will be sold, and sooner rather than later? I realize you can only answer for yourself here, but from your comments, you don't seem to think Pete plans to hang on here.
The stock is well off its 52 week high, yet I've seen the value of my stock triple since the summer of 2012. The real money comes watching it triple again in the next two years. I'm really in no hurry. What is your hurry, or more importantly, what do you think is Pete's hurry?
I think we will get this transition letter this year, and then this becomes a moot point. I don't agree when you say the company would have already been sold without the FDA hiccup. First, it was a lot more than a hiccup, and I'm willing to be patient here. I'm confident Pete will maximize shareholder value when the time is right. That time isn't now.
Be patient. Putin, the Russians, the Israelis and the Gaza don't matter here. Neither does Yellen or interest rates. This company is debt free, and sales just continue to grow. Pete said not to expect anything from the FDA for at least another month. The rest of this noise in the markets is just that. Forget the noise and pay attention to the big picture here. The transition letter will come soon enough.
"He's going to have change his analysis after Bill Taylor's analysis of the tiny impact of the 2015 change in reimbursement. If he doesn't he's in effect calling management liars which he probably isn't concerned about either."
Your analysis is spot on. Suraj isn't as stupid as he first appears. I think Michael Senken needs to look a bit further at the source of the short interest.
