Obama has done a great job of eroding the middle class - so ask yourself who's buying candles - it sure ain't the illegals and the people sucking off the government and the people with money sure ain't having parties to sell candles - Socialism isn't good for this type of company. And looking at the insiders not buying at these so called low prices, I would say they see the same picture.
There not going to be bought out just at the time all their hard work is finally coming to fruition. Once the street understands the company and gets a feel for their earning potential, the stock will really take off.
Well it looks like they'll have to come to the open market for some cash. not a big deal since the shares issued will go to strong hands and more shares will be outstanding to help with the liquidity. of course, they are adding capacity because they are growing, which few companies seem to be able to do nowadays. So a nice positive announcement today and the fact is, the clients must like what they see.
The stock price was about 10 in 1995 and here we are almost 20 years later and the stock price is at 10. Now, the semiconductor index has been on fire lately and Cohu hasn't budge. Isn't this the field they are in or do i have that wrong. I guess the good news is that it sits around book value becuase management hasn't figure out how to increase shareholder value, but maybe someday.
Everytime intel's stock price went up in the past, cohu stock price would sure to follow. Not this time. It looks like the guys on the other end of the video sale got themselves a good deal, paying half sales - we'll see who was smarter on that one. But I'm thinking the guys who bought it can't beleive that they paid so little for exactly what will do wonders for their little company and stock price. And since CSTI bought cohu's video company the stock price has gone up 20 percent - not so lucky here, where the stock price has actually gone down. Then add intel's stock price going up and you have to wonder if cohu's stock price will ever see a bounce.
I love the articles that tells you how great the refriners are - then out of the blue the news breaks.
Wall street at its finest - get the deal done before the minions figure it out. Today's news didn't just happen they've been talking about this behind close doors for quite awhile. So the little guy once again takes the hit.
Stay with the small caps away from the wall street machine that is the only way you can beat these guys. Its not becuase their smart, its more to do with who they know and the information that just so happens to cross their desk.
The bought yoplait thinking the consumer is looking for healthier food, but the thing is just full of sugar - so how is that healthy. I'm thinking people who like yogurt are trying to eat healthier - so how about making a yogurt that is sugar light - no artificial sugars, just a sugar light product with only let see 6 grams of sugar instead of 25 to 30 grams. Brilliant, huh!
Like real healthy products, ones without a lot less sugar, and gmos, instead of being some large business pushing the same old, same old. The answer is always cutting cost from non-creative people.
Sell your shares and move on. if you want to blame anyone, blame the clueless democratic administration for holding back growth with needless regulations, taxes, no urgency of upgrading the grid, and being just plain dumb.
I couldn't help but notice that they sold the old rimage and put all their money on Qumu. I love the guidence for the future - revenues will be up 30 to 50 percent but no mention of earnings. the bottom line with this comapny they paid over 50 million for a company that basically has revenues around 16 million in a good year but seems to earn no money after expenses. So what you can get use to is declining stockholder equity as they pay their employees a nice wage while the company eventually drains all thier cash without increasing the value of the company. Amazingly the book value at one time if I remember correctly was around 11 to 13 dollars - now its below 7, not exactly the way you want to increase shareholder value. Maybe they'll prove me wrong, but they should have liquidated years ago, it would have been a better return. When you buy a company for close to sixty million you suppose to get a return on your investment - it sure appears from quarterly numbers it hasn't happen - so if they bot a 10 year treasury with the 60 million they would have returned about 1.8 million annually - a lot better than what they earn today - now if they had lock in a 4 percent rate it would have been 2.4 million - so 1.8 million they would have earned about 22 cents or 30 cents on the 2.4 million - they add in lower overhead, expenses, benefits - then sell the rimage buisness of 23 million - talking close to 150 million becuase I"m pretty sure they had over 100 to 120 million in cash at one time with no debt - pluse no dilution from issueing options over the years - so i get about 18.75 per share years ago - so if you got that - a few years ago - you lock in a higher fix rate and be ahead of the game. So all in all liquidation was a far better alternative than trying to create this income stream when you overpaid for Qumu which is not generating the income stream you need to be a successful company in the long run unless their is some golden goose somewhere in the company
You had me until the obama administration said it would cost the economy 700000 jobs. another doomsday prophecy from our great leader.
but their just in time inventory has nothing in 10.5 or 11 - so they offer we can order it online. i could have done that at home. So i go somewhere else. Whats the point of a brick and mortor store if you aren't going to have stuff availbale to purchase when i walk into the store.
