stock is at 3.39 and mm amex throws up 100 shares at 3.33???????????? NAS PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!! anything but this...how can we go forward with this type od handling a trade?Time and Time again we get this cr....p
Has been moving larger blocks last week or so.....seen many times where they lower the ask below market even when the stock is acting well.Picked up a little more at $3,15 today......WOW what a day.
This could be a lot of things,I doubt it's an insider though!.MM Amex has been on the sell side recently..often when the stock was doing well undermining the current price.Markets are taking a big hit..profits to offset other holdings?All conjecture..44,000 shares traded..hardly a dump Alvin.Hopefully it stabilizes here and creeps back up,,,,hate Fridays on a down day though.
I think that Management should be asking their own questions,like why do we seem to be stuck in this trading range...shareholders can ask all the questions they want and management will be ready with answers to which they wish to answer.It's about answering the obvious questions "of themselves" and finding those answers.Ig they are not scratching their heads and asking the same questions some of us are...then to me they are not doing their job.Once again numbers are great bujt when you are a publicly traded company you owe it to your shareholders to give them value in their investments.Look money in the bavnk is great,security in jobs but I think they need to use some of that in a way to BUILD GSB's exposure to the street.Maybe scream from the highest mountain:)
The divvy shows stability......they announced a quarterly dividend...don't think they woujld have resinded
that...was hoping for a bump.NOT for my pocket but to DO SOMETHING to stimulate the stock and that would have just been an easy way to me.
I was really disappointed in the 1.5 dividend and expected them to raise it,I would also be happy with a buy back...sometimes I think, is management so aware of how GSB trades on the amex that they decided hey why raise it no one is going to notice anyway?Look management is doing a great job with numbers and I'm really happy about that but at some point I say, My money is invested for gains not pats on the back.We are NOT where we should be and who else can you blame for that?
I agree that a buy back would open more eyes than a 1.5 divvy.
Lots of frustration here seeing how we are being viewed by the street.
to hold price with such small retail investment...we have institutions which seem to be holding but very small retail and so to move .8 on a 100 share block is just to easy.I like institutions but I would also like to see more retail....guess bottom line is trading is just so light and with such small retail if a insti gets a bug up it's aze or just decides to move on what will hold us up.Until I see a steady increase in volume I can only assume management is lacking in getting the word out in the right places.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I don't think there is a chance in you know what to not expect a dividend announcement and should be any day,They woild have NEVER pred one and not follow through with it......OH GD I hope not,I also expected a announcement of it along with the #'s PR and have to think it will be raised...these guys know far in advance what their intentions are and WHEN.The CEO basically said they are open to aquasitions but nothing is in the pipe with one....what boggles me is why wouldn't they announce a divi .....couild it be they know how GSB trades on the naz and are saving it for a boost like Greg has mentioned?
I feel pretty confident that this report will be strong as the CEO alluded to in his CC,question is do we have to trade it on the report or will it hold up?Wonder if they keep the divvy at 1.5 or on higher cash reserves raise it a bit...maybe to 3.I think that would be a positive for the stock....then get off the amex!
Globalscape management MUST act like a proud parent and start whipping out the pictures at EVERY opportunity they get.I do not want Globalscape to be the best kept secret any longer.If you have the product show how proud you are of it at every opportunity you get.
Yea I did post Greg,I basically was answering a question of yours in ref to that stock I had owned....it did go up $5 a share and was aquried some time after for $11 per share....It reminded me so much of GSB as far as both of their trading patterns and we had one investor who held no prisoners when it came to the CC's and listing on the Nas was a BIG factor with this guy...he was relentless and went head to head with the CEO(he was a large holder of stock).I really don't remember the exact Nas listing and of course I was out before the buy out but did real well overall.
I agree and have been saying this for a long time now........BUT at the same time why is GSB treated like an evil step child when it comes to retail...is it management not getting the word out to the BEST of their abilities...we paint such a rosey picture here but it's like throwing a party and nobody showing up.Dont get me wrong I hate the way we trade on the amex and I was an investor in a stock that was trading on the AMEX and JUMPED as soon as listed on the Nas...and I am talkin over $5 in justr months....the whole pattern was different....These MM's on the amex do NOT seem to be trading GSB in the best intrest of the company they represent and as an investor request GSB make a move.
Time and time again Greg when the stock looks like it wants to move up the ask price drops like clock work....seems as if it's amex MM's most of the time.With this volume it's so easy to manipulate it....we NEED new retail investors DESPERATELY.I agree as far as the amex and hope management seriously considers that move to the Nas,I know they made mention of it in the past and I'm not sure if they conform to the requiremments or not.
