    Sad day in America when you think that Dunkins has good donuts. Franchised, trucked in, preservative laden, go support a sole proprieter before there's none left, that's how you help with income inequality, stop buying from economic imperialist.

    I think those EPS numbers are wrong. I think the robo analysit were confused by the share count as a result of their capital structure reorg. I'm trying to find a recent report from the underwriters to see what they say, but the pro forma for the fourth quarter was around 71 cents if I remember correctly, so they should make more money as the gas hedges come off but also they have higher expenses hitting as a result of pay raises which I think is a good longer term move. All that being said I wouldn't expect more than $3 this year unless I'm missing something. Next year with the new routes and more traction maybe you get some nice growth, like I said I'm looking for a recent report and I'll check back.

    OverBought, Over Manipulated Over Owned

    by bustabords1 Apr 23, 2015 10:24 AM frdmhr Apr 23, 2015 10:51 AM Flag

    All the shares that were shorted were bought by someone who eventually need to sell, essentially the shares sold short increased the size of the shares out. The longs on this board are going to put my children through college. At best these guys can lie about a back end loaded holiday season, it's over but the longs don't know it until Charlton Heston comes and takes their shares from their cold dead hands. Next to nobody was wearing GoPro's on the slopes this year, that was so 2013,2014. My son has one it sits in his desk drawer, the footage is not very compelling. Even when you watch the side by side with the Chinese competitor you realize that looking at POV footage is a good way to get Vertigo, it has no mainstream use except, EXCEPT, amatuer porn. I will be starting a new position sometime between now and earnings, and I will doulbe my position no matter up or down after the dog and pony show. GLTA

    How do you know how much they dumped, I din't see any filings. I don't know if they need to make any filing now that they have a prospectus in place. Anyway I'm interested in how much Luxor has dumped and if you think/know they are dumping 100% of holdings, please expound.

  • Luxor owns 20% of the company it's not in their best interest to smash the stock, pinktaco is right. Their non public REIT busines has huge fees and commissions, which makes them very popular with brokers and made RCAP big profit before the Criminal Schorsch's related party rollup scandal. They need leadership to address the regulatory change and put the markets mind at ease. Annuities got hit with regulations and they over came them with additional disclosure documernts and went on to set record sales. This too can happen in this space, leadership needs to step up and explain that theirs is a uniques product therefore they cannot be compared to an S&P fund or ETF, hence the product is an appropriate diversifier amongst a retirement accounts total portfolio. That coupled with another disclosure form that no one reads(trust me I sold hundreds of annuities) and sales are on track. Who knows the 20 basis point S%P fund drops 10% and the fee rich REIT appreciates 5% as real estate becomes a safe port in the monetary storm, hence the do gooder legislatures can wipe their #$%$ with the disclosure documents they created while looking at S&P losses in their Vanguard account. How do you like that communication do I have to WRITE it for them MYSELF!!!!

    Why are we outsourcing NASA??

    by frdmhr Apr 13, 2015 9:35 PM frdmhr Apr 15, 2015 8:41 AM Flag

    I was actually throwing a bone of sorts to the usual Obama bashing neo cons that patrol most boards. Being that Obama is on his sixth year I thought there might have been a chance that he ordered the outsourcing. Tip of the cap for keeping it real.

    Kimbal Musk ==== sells sells and sells again

    by kbodie77777 Apr 13, 2015 3:15 PM frdmhr Apr 13, 2015 9:42 PM Flag

    If Elon doesn't sell a couple of million shares right here his ex wife may destroy him in court. I believe they got divorced or separated at higher prices therefore if I were the attorney I would base my demands on the stock price at the time of separation. If the stock price is worth half then I would demand 100% of the assets based on his stupidity for not selling an overpriced asset. Divorce proceedings are public record, could get interesting.

  • Is this the Dems version of crony capitalism. NASA was one agency that actually seemed to be successful at everything they did unlocking lots of technological advancements and Patriotism that transcends invading third world countries.

    You're right, that's an easy upsell for the sales rep. Longer lasting better resale value, ca ching! Only thinkg is I think the laminate had higher margins since it's cheaply made and full of chemicals..he, he, he. Oh well at this level think it's more about the business stabilizing and resuming growth trajectory.GLTA

  • Why can't Panasonic build what they need with out the massive Capital outlay for the Giga factory. For a money losing operation wouldn't it make more sense to use partners to spread the risk. Even if the battery system was made in Japan, what does the boat ride to California add in costs, maybe $500 a battery pack. It seems to me that Musk's wants it all. This may work or his hubris could crush the companies prospects.

    I'm looking at From 4 filing for Luxor dated 4/2 and it looks like they dumper around 450K shares between 10.42 and 10.83. I need to go back through the filings to find out how much more they are going to dump because they could demolish the stock getting out of their whole position.

    Sad that you don't see the rank and filing selling. They need to have a legal opinion in order to remove the legend off of 144 stock. I'm sure it's intimidating to ask the legal department of your employer for the Opinion letter so you can sell your stock. On the other hand for the Chief Cook and bottlewasher, the legal department works for Woodman and he has no problem selling stock. The rank and file will ride this thing right into the groind.

  • I guess for the staus seaching buyer that makes the car more attractive. Question how come the outselling Nissan Leaf owners don't have range anxiety? I guess they use their cars to commute to work while Tesla drivers need to be able to drive the length of the Pacific Coast Highway in a day to justify the bloated price they paid for an automobile, EV or ICE, it's a stupid investment to spend 100k on a car unless you have tremendous insecurities, i.e. performance anxiety.

  • I noticed the name Virgin "America" and I'm wondering if this is only the U.S. air carrier???

    They lose money on every car they produce

    If they could only make more cars to lose money on then they would firmly establish themselves as a money losing car operation. To tell you the truth it's starting to sound like the recent histroy of Detrout.

    When they pulled the Jacked up Model S, they call the model X, off road the Battery quickly bottomed out on a rock and ignited in flames, now the Sport was how fast you could run away from the Inferno.

    Tea Bagging Analyst says the important number is the Delivery number. Why?? Because that's the bull case that they are on track. On track for what? More losses? This is were the Tesla story comes unwound, the Teabagger, who only has a short period when he can speak before Elon's Teslicles are put back in his mouth says that it's all about market share. So right now they are losing money a la Amazon in order to corner the market on Expensive toys..BRILLIANT!!!!!

  • I guess they can't move enough product with a traditional finance firm even with Tesla guaranteeing the Residual value. Now TSLA will give you the keys if you can make any type of payment, A.K.A, Direct Leasing. Mr Musk that is an I.O.U., that Sir is as good as money. Ring the bell another Tessie sold!
