You know ACAS gets management fees from MTGE, right smart guy?
Once you've been around as long as Time you can start to throw stones and maybe we won't laugh at you. Maybe.
Agree- Santa Clause plus January Effect; I'm holding until late Jan and then looking to take profits off the table.
Yes, enough so that I haven't been back to the board since today. (Not blaming anyone but my own self, just lost all enthusiasm.)
From whom would you seek an explanation? Any 'beat' is based on some analysts (likely inept) noodlings ; those aren't explainable... I thought the Q1 miss was well explained on the qcor side...
Yeah, I'd pretty much given up on this board. My cost basis is 50, but j have no plans to divest at this time. From my perspective, several of HHCs main assets are either barely productive (Hawaii) or pretty much non-productive (seaport) so selling at this level doesn't make sense.
I do find the lack of attention surprising!
I think the really great CEOs are often ego driven. Imagine the ego boosting power of taking Questcor thru $17 all the way to say... $350? A $350 share price drips prestige ;)
What is your malfunction, LA? I think you're a shrill shill, trolling to increase the FUD that surrounds any volatile stock.
As said below, pick your side, choose whom to believe, and leave off the rest of this stuff which, frankly, is none of your gd business.
With respect to the weak, well... I've more than doubled my money with QCOR so far this year (and I'm a MD supporter). If that's weak, I'll take it.
That's complete nonsense. MD shares his bullseye predictions based on complex modeling and you call him a cheerleader? Droll...
Those figures (which originally appeared in a post I authored) were taken directly from company PR. You can doubt them if you like, but a publicly traded company misrepresenting their financials in a press release is going to be in deep trouble.
As to how that relates to earnings, I predict they will be Good.
From the Q2 PR: "As of July 26, 2013, Questcor had cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of $115.6 million, and restricted cash of $75.0 million..."
From the div PR I got this morning: ""Our business is generating a growing amount of cash flow, as evidenced by Questcor's $278 million in cash and investments at October 4, 2013. Our cash position includes $75 million in restricted cash, unchanged from the second quarter 2013."
That's $278M-(115.6+75)=$87.4M IN JUST OVER TWO MONTHS. (wish I could use bigger font for this:) A CHANGE OF 46%.
Low volume manipulation before earnings, which should be great.
I'm still buying calls.
Silly to sell this close to earnings IMO, especially with the price as depressed as it is. Should be a nice ride up at earnings; I've resolved to sell the rip this time as I think continued volatility is to be expected.
