for some reason why is it that nobody seems to make any real money in china - you always need a partner, eventually they borrow your product and drop you as a partner. Why anybody does business in china is beyond me and when they can't find a way to borrow your know-how they buy you out like the pork company they bought last year.
Not going to 40 - book value around 49 - shares in strong hands - tax loss selling will be ending soon - this might be as low as it goes, if not, its pretty close.
this message board runs better than the company
i like when the new guy comes in and cuts cost to pump up earnings for a quarter or two and then its back to the same old stuff. i got a great idea spend some money on research and development and develope products the market wants. yep thats the way you do it, the acquisitions over the years have be so poor no direction, and everytime the company annouces some state of the art led product it does nothing for earnings. the company is top heavy wit the few guys at the top getting paid way too much. if your a shareholder and you want to see shareholder value go up you invest in a management team that can deliver and this has surely not happen here.
and we all know how it ends for fad stocks. The insiders get out long before the stock ends up in the single digits. not a dollar going to the company. If you follow the insiders on wall street you'll always save yourself a lot of heartache and money. Nobody sells a good thing until its not a good thing. the company is basically a 1 product company subject to intense competetion and it won't be long before the company we'll need more money to finance its growth, which will just dilute shareholder value even more. take a cue from the insiders and move on to other better opportunities.
lastly, I've seen this movie many times before. they use the same script. stock goes up on hype, the main guy sells, the insider shareholders follow with an announcement that they want to get out, then the company comes out with a shareholder offer before the well dries up, and then finally the competetion comes in and the stock is a continues slow death.
Since we are talking the short term here. a swing trade is that it goes up a few points and you sell it regardless of the fundamentals. I'm sure you got your days mixed up because it didn't hit 14.31 on tuesday, but anyway, as a swing trader, i marvel at how you hung in their when it hit 12. 11 last week. Now i would have given you a lot of credit if you told the board prior to earnings that you sold it, but you didn't want to be wrong with egg on your face, but hey i'll give you credit anyway. now the prior week had the two highest volume days making new highs and selling off on low volume, even the sell off yesterday was done on average volume. As i said before if something has fundamentally change with the company then the stock goes higher, if their new products are run of the mill then selling it at 14.31 will look like a nice trade but you or I cant really answer that question just yet. I wouldn't be surprised if the company got bot out, made new highs, or faded lower.
There is nothing wrong with the company. The pieces are in place for the company to grow. Just like last quarter the stock will slowly inch up again until the next earnings report. And if it gets cheaper it will be an excellant buy to add more shares. My only disappointment is that they haven't announced a dividend policy. they beat wall street expectations and I guess the short timers were hoping for more and a higher guidence for 2015. So buy some shares and ride the slow grind up again. also if you look at the high end of the guidence they are trading at just 13 times forward earnings.
thats my 2 cent for whatever its worth.
Just imagine if they took this program and used the 18 billion that the govt waste on job training programs and gave it out to small companies under certain guidelines how much the economy would improve. of course using 18 billion for govt to train people for low wage jobs helps nobody.
The company is growing and eventually the stock price will reflect this. I would like to see them start offering a dividend
Are you in the stock or just ranting. Nice contract they received. Good time to buy some more shares. i actually wouldn't be surprised if they got bot out. they are in the sweat spot of national gas/ oil build out.
8 or 10 million for ISNS would make CSTI a one stop shop company for video surveillance. ISNS is struggling, so a low ball offer might get it done and utilize their products in a more effective way.
New orders are they ever going to show real profits. And i would like to see the insiders buying to show real confidence in the company rather than sales that seem to be so common for this company..
I just like to know who audits the books of alibaba to make sure its not all smoke and mirrors like so many chinese companies seem to be.
Do american accounting firms audit chinese companies or is it lleft to the honest auditing companies in china. Do they even have accounting companies in china? I;m just thinking that alibaba will always beat earning estimates as far as the eye can see until a real audit is performed. but maybe alibaba has found a way to make money that amazon hasn't been able to figure out.
You know creativity is on the way out. if apple was a footbal team it would be on the cover of sport illurstrated, which is always the kiss of death.
i remember the days when cohu was more like CSTI and not the type of company that sucks off cash cows and pays themselves well for #$%$ performance year after year. Cohu should have sold there semiconductor business a long time ago and move into the video camera homeland security higher margin industry. they sold their camera business for 10 million dollars to CSTI and the company they sold it to managed to generate in 3 weeks income of 550000.00 - it might be these guys at cohu are just there collecting a check without a clue of any creativity or the brains to reinvent the company with higher margin, less cynical businesses, but that window has probably closed.
managemenet should be cleaned out completetly they've drove this company into the ground with no direction. Based on the price there should be some value here. I'm in it for a trade if the nasdaq keeps going up it should carry this leaky boat a few points higher.
the stock market doesn't work by going on a message board and talking up why the stock should be at a higher price. the stock action is telling you differently. Of course the pumpers are long gone so now your left to turn off the lights.
