should turn negative
so today's pr actually is a guide down
non-gaap is absolutely ok as GAAP doesn't reflect the underlying business performance at all - but in this case investors are looking at the wrong metrics
actually the higher guidance is just a function of the lower sharecount given the increased buyback activity - the Q4 same store sales increase was in fact the weakest for more than 2 years, cash generation was lower than last year and overall revenue and earnings were a huge miss compared to consensus estimates.
the earnings release wasn't good - it was in fact a far cry from the beat-and-raise quarters the company used to report in 2013. Moreover the projections for 2014 were below most estimates and the growth rate is dramatically slowing. Not quite the ingredients to give the stock a lift. Lots of sceptical questions on the call. Wondering the shares aren't down double digits
earnings were a far cry from previous reports and the outlook actually came in below most expectations - wondering the stock is holding up that well - shorted big time this morning - looking for double digit losses
the shares are down 30% in Germany on very heavy volume und that's exactly where pre-market trading will begin once opened
that's wrong - recent offerings are not included - market cap is most likely closer to $30 mln or even higher
sure - they will dictate they way it goes - at least at the beginning - several million shares already traded after very negative commentary in the german wall street journal
would still think this is a great chance to play a rebound
remember the company sold shares and warrants at fire sale prices just four weeks ago with the trial results already well known most likely.
mea culpa. But time will correct my mistake pretty soon.
yeah baby - hope someone took my advice - absolutely fantastic gain, staying short here for another weak day
shares will be down tomorrow as the rally will reverse during the conference call but until then I wouldn't short the shares
nobody cares about the results - quarter was abysmal from a backlog standpoint but the stock doesn't trade on fundamentals anyway - shorts will be squeezed one more time here
so where is the good news ? generating revenues out of two-years-old backlog ? Diluting shareholders at fire sale prices ? failure to take in new orders ? failure to deliver profitability regardless of the revenue level ?
