With efunding starting to kick in, the earnings should stabilize and be on the upswing for 2016. Just going through last quarter's earning report they spent a one time research and development expense of 8 cent, but the JL division should be the real growth driver in 2016 as the 85 million dollar contract begins to hit the bottom line and if the shuttle division returns to profitability the stock should rebound quite nicely. As for the dividend, by keeping it at 16 cents, they obviously feel that 2016 will be much better year, even though I think they should cut it in half - a 4 percent dividend yield is plenty.
If you see insider buying soon that should seal the deal. Also, the last time they got a big efunding contract the stock doubled close to 20. I see no reason why this won't happen again as long as the market holds up. We shall see as these small caps have ways of disappointing in this slow growth environment.
I could see someone coming in offerring 28 to 30 dollar a share. A few years ago they were looking for at least 38 to 40. How times change. Management has failed to get the stock going in the right direction, which means, the job they've been doing is surely lacking, not too mention that shareholders lack any confidence this is the best use of capital with their track record.
Funny how somebody must be making overtures to buy them, so they buy TSYS and add debt to the balance sheet. I hope someone still comes in with an hostile buyout -investors will have no problem taking the offer and getting rid of this current management team.
Losses as far as the eye can see. Another typical biotech that never really had a real product but a dream over the rainbow.
You're probably pretty close to the truth on that one. Liberals just think the middle class has plenty on money and are living the good life. When anybody who's work in the real world has seen their expenses go up while their income has fallen or been flat.
are WLDN and POWR. Wldn earnings come out tonight, so we'll see if that is a catalyst for the stock. Also they are a player in micro-grids, which seem to be gaining momentum in the utility area. POWR seems like a more speculative play but they have a large backlog. The question is can they convert the backlog to actual solid earnings.
That was pretty foolish, arguing over the pros and cons of PLPC, but if he had just bot it nears it low back in August he would have had a nice 12 or 15 point gain, oh well.
EEi is good value, the type of stock you can sleep at night with. I've own it back when they had a shrimp farm. It woildn't surprise me if they got bot out at some point as you;ve indicated.
JCS has been very disappointing, but thats the price you pay sometimes for waiting for things to turn around, but they have an 80 million dollar contract kicking in now for upgrading technology in schools in florida, which is just starting to hit the bottomline line, so i'm thinking that with tax loss selling coming to an end and a better chance of improved earnings going forward that the stock will begin to start going in the right direction
Good luck with your investments.
That was their PR answer about the cups. Maybe that is why these people aren't rocket scientists and basically make one thing that the masses are addicted to.
I sold my eei. I'm not sure where the catalyst is going to come from unless they get bot out. Now a few value plays that seem to be acting well lately are the following; And just to clear the air here i'm not hyping them - they might do nothing and just sit there as value traps, but anyway
EML - nice quarterly earnings report, pays a decent dividend - somebody tried to buy it last year.
GENC - selling around cash, plays no dividend, but has been getting a little love lately from the "House" passing a highway bill that should benefit them in a good way.
JCS - selling below book, pay a 7 percent div, no debt, but should benefit from school funding that the administration has set aside for technology upgrades (about 3 billion set aside)which is now hitting the bottom line.
Hurc - value play on the industrial sector if it ever comes back.
CLRO - another nice company that might have a nice quarter release, which just might lead to a breakout in the stock price. They seem to be doing well and gaining market share in the video area.
As for span - I thought it was a nice earnings report and should trend higher from the good quarter. Of course, these small caps need another cycle of a small cap revival, which seems to be lacking at the moment.
which has nothing to do with christianity, but yet that is not poltical correct enough - too funny. A country with no borders, no strength, no center, just a group of tribes, ends up like europe or worst like the middle east.
The new world order denoucing christianity is alive and well. Just take a look at what they are doing to europe and then they'll tackle america beleive me. thats why this next election is the most critical election in america's history. this poltical correctness is going to destroy america - that is the plan, to destroy america from within.
Just boycott this company stopping buying their products if enough people start they'll change and get out of this poltically correct movement of taking love and christianity out of society.
I have no use for a company that somehow thinks by making their cups for the christmas season poltically correct that i'm going to contribute a dime to this anti christian company. I think other christian should make a statement because this is the only way they notice when the bottom line drops. They just think they can dump on christians, time to make a stand and starbucks seems like a perfect company that would surely be affected if christians decided to go elsewhere. I'm kind of tired of this poltical correct company dumping on christians.
I got a great idea, lets just cancel christmas and just exchange real love instead of paying these corporate masters anything.
not sure that is the case EML had a pretty good quarter in their trucking business and they even have a division that services the mining industry, which wasn't so good as expected.
Leonard F. Leganza, Chairman, President and CEO, stated, “The Industrial Hardware Segment experienced sales growth of 9% and 5%, respectively, in the third quarter and nine months of 2015 compared to the same periods in 2014. The sales growth in the third quarter and nine months reflect a combination of increased sales from our new composite panel production facility located in North Carolina where the company manufactures sleeper cabs for Western Star’s new Class 8 truck 6900 series, also a surge in military aftermarket orders to equip “up armored” Humvees which are being retrofitted for lighter duty operations. In addition, the Company experienced an increase in sales of our paddle rotary latches and hinges for the Class 5 and 6 light service body vehicles and increased sales of latching hardware for new model vehicles for the recreational sports market. We anticipate that this broad trend of markets growth will continue through the fourth quarter.”
i guess the only thing enoc has going for itself is that it has some cash on the balance sheet ,otherwise, it looks to be a very dead company. I better play in this area is WLDN - they are actually making money, have a sound balance sheet, and aren't over hyped and is actually cheap on a valuation earnings basis.
because the smily bear took over the company. He's good at laying off people, he does it at every company he takes over. He's so cute when he's eating snicker bars and licking ice cream cones and that sly smile just makes you all warm and fuzzy.
