English translation: "As long as I can keep your attention focused on some goofy US ecommerce sales rankings, I will be earning my money. The fact is, 80% of the M.O.J.O. units will be manufactured, sold, and used in the Asia-Pacific region and the first indication you'll have of the sales growth is when tens of millions of dollars of new revenue starts showing up in the quarterly reports. By the time that happens, I'll be working some other stock."
A pint or so of acetone to wash that down with would be the perfect beverage to aid the digestion of your headset. My cellar runs more heavily toward the nice Napa Valley napthas, so I may go that route, instead. Bon appetit.
I haven't heard any of the Longs refer to it as "the ol flipperoo," so I suspect it's the Shorts whose email list you want to get on. In any case, once your pants are all the way down around your ankles, just hop over there in the corner, reach down, and unplug that lamp, and they'll take care of the rest.
Agreed! If they don't have a skateboard hook right inside the door of their crib, or if they DO have a gianormous IRA they can withdraw from without early withdrawal penalty, we need to keep them from getting their paws on M.O.J.O.
A former Treasury Department official, interviewed tonight on BBC News In America, said that if the House continues to fight for concessions through the use of either one or a series of short-term debt-ceiling extensions, Black Friday could come and go without the event that would resoundingly green-light consumer confidence. In that event, December 10th might find a lot of cash still in people's wallets, rather than spent in November on the major console-launch dates.
SDOI has no operations left at all, just cash and NOL's, and it has not been bought out, yet, either. Someone on that board might be able to help with your question.
I don't know what MOGA is, but it led me to think, gee, it's a good thing Acer retired the Gateway brand a little over a year ago, or they could have taken our concept, brought out the M.O.O.J.O., and blown us out of the water!
According to their most recent quarterly report, MadCatz makes 64.7% of its sales OUTSIDE the United States. Tell us how this "Obufuscare" of which you speak impacts THOSE consumers?
They even thought to block iPhone users from cluttering up the sites on the first day? Cool. Who got right through with an Android phone?
Today's announcement tells me that rather than sell out to a deep-pockets partner for what would basically be a royalty of peanuts on tens of millions of units, the plan is to roll M.O.J.O. out gradually and finance ongoing production from cashflow generated from early adopters, keeping all the profit for shareholders.
This handwringing about "consoles" is comical when I imagine kids in Kuala Lumpur lugging PS4's in their backpacks to the local internet café because where they live there's no AC electricity in the homes. I am happy to have picked up another 17K this morning at .7421. If agreement on the debt ceiling is reached before the deadline, all stocks will rise. If agreement on the debt-ceiling is not reached, MadCatz will be the only gaming stock doubling its revenues with Pacific Rim regional sales in 2014, since the US and European economies will be cratered.
I hunt pheasants with a Honda CR-V. Sometimes I flush 'em right into a power-line and they break their necks, and sometimes I pick 'em out of the grille after reaching my destination. Either way, I don't recall paying for a license or maintaining a dog--that's for fools.
But I am ready to bet you right now that I bag more upland game-birds with that rice-grinder than you EVER will with even a DOZEN M.O.J.O. units, let alone a PC or a tablet. (I'm not sure about a smart-phone. Maybe if you scaled it out there like a skipping stone...) Even a BLIND pig finds an acorn once in a while.
I guess you could TRY to sell that argument to the retired couple from Illinois who drove their Winnemucca all the way across the country to see Yellowstone after the kiddies went back to school, only to be turned away at the gate. Or to the shopping mall developer whose hearing on his final wetlands mitigation permit approval with the Fish and Wildlife Service was scheduled six months ago for THIS afternoon. Or to His Highness, our very own king here, whose God-given 8-cent gain from a precious press release has been whittled down to tenths of a cent by the market anxiety attributable to this mess. You can #$%$ the fans, but you can't #$%$ the ballplayers.
I want to hear more about these barley shows. Been known to brew my own, from time to time...
Where on the face of the earth can you be living, that you are unaware that the United States government will be shutting down at midnight tonight? Or that it is the avowed objective of one faction of our national legislature to obstruct the raising of the debt-ceiling in a little over two weeks? These two facts MORE than account for the weakness in stock prices--whether or not MadCatz issues a press release has LESS than nothing to do with it.
5. Read any recent quarterly or annual report, and learn that a majority of this company's sales are in countries that are not subject to "Obamacare," and that because it's Android-based, an even LARGER percentage of M.O.J.O. sales would be international, especially in Asia, where Android has market-share domination. Besides, the first-year IRS penalty for "shared responsibility payment" (those who opt to ignore the individual mandate) is only $95 or 1% of income, and residents of the twenty-some states that have opted not to expand their Medicaid programs are exempt altogether, and the House has voted to delay that the same year as the employer mandate has been delayed. If you can't afford that, you can't afford M.O.J.O., anyway. Though the SRP increases down the road, M.O.J.O. will have already been introduced this year and next.
I gave you that "thumbs down," but only because you requested it. You're welcome.
I disagree that the 8-K implies any imminent M&A activity. Other stocks I've owned have taken similar steps for their top executives just to provide a bit of a bonus to them should the company be taken out or in some cases, a disincentive to entities contemplating a hostile takeover action, since these agreements would become a financial obligation on the potential acquirer. This is something that has become customary in the modern, rich-get-richer, executive-favored environment of corporate governance. This costs the shareholders nothing right now, so they know they can get away with it.
