Hey superbowl twin
in my opinion Zacks is junk and if you are listening to talking heads, broker ratings and whatever other #$%$ is out there you probably shouldn't be investing. so keep smoking the peace pipe.
Here's a example - Zacks has cohu as a number one rated stock - the stock has been dead money as far as the eye can see - and not one insider buy. You see when intel goes up Cohu goes up - well no so this time because management missed the boat a long time ago.
The company has been dead money for 6 years now. The only ones making any money here is the management team - they get more stock all the time and you'll never see a insider buy here. They made one lousy acquisition after another. If you own shares i would move on - it wasn't clear what they were talking about the dividend - but I interrupted as they are probably going to eliminate it since they can't make any money and they sure don't want to cut management salaries which is where they surely should start since ready is well overpaid for a company that is going no where.
I'll bet next quarter will beat earning estimates and then the following quarter they'll miss - not an ounce of consistency. So until then, this is basically a trading vehicle. if it sells off buy it - rebounds sells it. Buy it before next quarters earnings then sell it after the rise - on and on - same old story quarter after quarter - they surprise -then disappoint you - like a crazy relationship - sometimes its just better to cut ties until they have their act together - if ever
I keep waiting for this to get to a point where I know I'm getting a good deal when I buy it. I don't mind paying up for growth, but the last 2 years the growth has stalled with a very high PE now. If this can get under 20 it would be a good time to buy. So I patiently wait for that moment. I think at some point the street will give up on Raven and then I'll have my chance to get on board for the ship to sail again.
zacks is base on someones opinion - thats it - some guy in a suit - listen to yourself - study the market and you'll do fine - just ignore all the talking heads they sometimes get it right and sometimes get it wrong - thats how investing works with those guys. When zack's rates something at 5 its probably the ideal time to buy it and the opposite is probably true the other way. if i like a company i totally ignore what zacks says - the stock is going to do what its going to do regardless of someones opinion
Hey chris move on - you add no value to the conversation - your Crystal ball has perceived that by them announcing an acquisition prior to earnings that earnings are going to be soft. So the logic is by announcing the acquisition people will buy the stock and then be thrown under the bus when earnings are announced - good balance sheet, 3 percent dividend, selling at the low end of range - looks pretty much washed out to me - And the expectations of some good earnings isn't there, but hey, if they surprise on the upside - they'll go much higher than they will down if earnings disappoint.
Yeah, when are they ever going to earn any money? Hence, why they sell at under a buck - well, eventually they are going to run out of assets to sell.
What disaster? The speculative, fast money crowd ran for cover when the cmall caps took a down turn. I'm not sure how you make any money in the market. You bought it on some super hype by these newletters they don't know anything. these guys are growing the business and still earning money and the funny thing a good quarter and the stock price will be off to the races. But hey, if you don't really understand the company or think its got nothing going for it - then surely move on - it will feel good - unless the stock price takes off and then you can say shoulds, woulda, coulda.
As i said before, if the stock price is ever going to go anywhere, it needs to generate consistent earning growth which has yet to occur.
I remember the days of this once high flying stock when it was in the fifties. So maybe htis is the beginning of a steady rise. i don't care how they do it as long as the earnings go up.
Are there really any american companies actually making money in china - it sure seems that its more trouble than its worth - you always have to partner with a chinese company , then, after awhile, there always seems to be another chinese company that seems to have the same exact product of yours. i wonder how that happens. of course, there are no patent laws in china so your prioduct is always at the mercy of being stolen.
You need a real economy to grow earnings. all the companies out there have spent so much time cutting costs that there really hasn't been much innovation these past 7 years. If people could get 3 percent of their money in the bank the stock market would be 25 to 30 percent lower, which the feds know all too well. Add in all the gov't regulations and lack of effort by the democratic leadership, and the market is like a rudderless ship. And it gets a little old listening to cnbc analysts telling us the economy is getting better - that old saying is getting pretty old. the bottom line we have become japan- no growth and zero interest rates.
its call liquidity from forced zero interest rates. i shouldn't have to tell you how this is all going to end especially when we are living in a fake economy based on debt, no income growth, and no real jobs.
its call the street had high expectations and the company didn't deliver and the market is tired. if you haven't notice a lot of small caps havn't be doing well lately. but with this pathetic administration in office whats their to be excited about in the future.
i was thinking the same thing. they wait until their top pick has bottom out to downgrade it which basically means its time to buy. but whats even funnier and I really don't even know who would follow them - they down grade it from 65 to 54 and the stock price is 38 - I 'm thinking thats a helluva down grade expecting the stock to go up 30 percent.
