    Not bad. The Cow is not quite dry yet. That's $10,000 a week for next 33 months. If Titan didn't borrow the $150 million unsecured note in 2012 they would have ZERO CASH. They spend the money like they don't have to pay it back. The Chairman bragged recently that they average about $1.3 million in cash per location. What he failed to mention was that it is all borrowed monies that need to be paid back. Reality is that they don't even have enough cash to repay that $150 million note.

    it's all rigged....why does Invesco Canada need to own 18% of shares outstanding? Invesco advisors another 10% of s/o ? Fidelity 15% ? Huber 9% ? Black Rock and Towe nearly 5 % each?

    Ridiculous. stock is just totally boxed. Wells Fargo is the real goose in all this. WFC raised the $150 million bond and cleaned up on the underwriting fees when they knew this company's underlying business had negative cash flow and would never be able to repay bondholders their money. The only reason TITAN needed to borrow the money in the first place was because they were doomed.....if the company was any good they wouldn't have need to raise capital...and WFC needs #$%$ companies to raise money for so they can generate the fees.....WFC doesn't make underwriting fees on viable businesses because those good businesses don't need the capital.... WFC has continuously amended the BOND almost every quarter to just keep the "shell game" going....with no amendments ...stock would be at ZERO long time ago......WFC doesn't care if bond is repaid any more...they don't own hardly any. they sold the bonds at $100 ....and the other mutual funds and institutions who bough the bonds at $100 are sitting with their bonds priced at $72 ....going to ZERO

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    Titan Machinery $150 million convertible Bond (2019) closed the week at a NEW ALL TIME LOW @ $72.00 w 12.18% yield.
    Also last week Titan disclosed in their 10Q footnote section that Wells Fargo made a 5th amendment to the bond covenants.
    A bond with less than 5 years to maturity yielding over 12% is a high risk investment. The novice investors should realize that the common stock is RISKIER than the Bond, and the bond is extremely risky.
    The bond market tell is that this company is in risk of defaulting, high risk.....else why wouldn't smart money be bidding the bond higher?
    only reason common stock isn't at $2 is because the shares are controlled by a handful of mutual funds who are asleep at the wheel. The question is are the mutual funds going to dump it here for year end tax loss purposes.....will they hold it so they don't show losses.......or are they just have no buyers for their shares above $5 so they just simply hold it and ride it out.......
    It looks like Titan longs will be okay until the company files bankruptcy...not sure how soon, but that is a big risk to common shareholders and bond holders.

    TO the longs who think this company has cash of $100 million, they have over $1 billion in debt also and negative cash flow for 5 consecutive years. They can no longer do an underwriting because of high debt levels.
    They have no options left.

    If they paid some of their bills/debt they would be depleted of ALL Cash and still still have $1 billion worth of debt on their books.
    I guess once stock gets delisted or goes to pink sheet the company would get a new ticker w like TITNQ or TITNPK or something....then this message board will go away too

    A bigger risk for management is the related party transactions. The board members are pretty much all related and they have a $100million agreement that they made between the company and an outside entity they have an equity interest in..(really smells)..plus over $20 million construction fees to another relative

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    There is really no upside to titan machinery. the company closed 8 locations this year and are carrying over $1 billion in debt. Titan machinery does not make anything. Titan is a retailer of equipment and machinery where they compete directly against the manufacturers Caterpillar, Deere, CNHI, etc.
    Titan just doesn't not have a good business model. the company would not be in business today had they not raised equity in an underwriting and debt in a second underwriting.
    With shares being held up here at $13 is what's wrong with the stock market. A company that is practically bankrupt that can trade at over a $200 million market cap because all the shares are being held tightly by mutual funds.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
