They ought to hire that guy with the Brooklyn/ Long Island /Boston accent. He had mad dog enthusiasm.
I'm a lot more worried about the general market than I am about MCZ at this price. We're pretty close to the ground here, so unless they fail to survive, it's just a waiting game. If she can generate some credibility and a little excitement, the stock will sell at a better valuation than it EVER did under Darren. He should have been sent to pasture after the first rock band release.
Well Barney, judging by your performance over on that KTCC stock picking game, I'd have to say I'm not going to worry too much about your blather.
Fresh blood here. This was probably the most energetic CC I've heard in years. I think she'll be given the benefit of the doubt, which sure is better than the demoralized attitude associated with Darren and his exhausted credibility. I still regret not having sold at .70 and agree that is was INCREDIBLY bone headed to announce the shake up one day before the CC -- that cause a completely unnecessary panic. But this stock is a pretty good bet at .25, even in this lousy market we're in.
not likely. She's doing a good enough job IMO. I suspect the exciting or glitzy product isn't going to drive us this year, but her sound management is what we'll be betting on. If this had existed under Darren, we'd all be sitting pretty by now. CC is addressing share value as I type.
I think we rise from here. My faith may be restored. DR obviously screwed up the numbers, but the sales are there and Karen probably has the skill to set the ship a right. I say all this with the miserable PPS in mind. Darren blew some major smoke up our %&^*(, but The stock is way too cheap. They need to renounce the ATM.
" I keep wondering how Karen can write with a straight hand the words "reward our shareholders" if the business has received a fatal wound."
Because these people are not like you and me. Look at the litany of rosy statements that came out of Darren's pie hole-- for YEARS! In my twenty or thirty years of doing this, I've seen more lying CEO's than honest ones, probably by a ten to one ratio. Are they ever prosecuted, even when they run good companies into the ground? The people who reach the top of the corporate world are wired very differently and as often as not are sociopaths. And THAT is what Bernie Sanders is talking about and why he suddenly has a shot. People need to make character and honesty a prerequisite for holding office of any type -- both in the private and public sectors.
I just bought 10K, based on your reasoning. I feel I have little to lose unless MCZ declares BK. There will have to be a hope factor kicking in, now that DR is gone. The stock lost over 20% yesterday, I think, so even if the earnings stink, it probably can't drop a whole lot more IMO. This reminds me of the old days, except that even in the grimmest moments then, PPS was higher than it is now.
Well, if tomorrow is a disappointment, it will seem like the first words out of the new CEO's mouth were the usual pablum. I can't really understand why so many heads would roll unless there is chaos over a ruined company. Please tell me I'm wrong. And if they couldn't pull it all together over rock band, what kind of future do we even have, and isn't Karen largely responsible for destroying the balance sheet? Maybe the others hogged the life boats and Karen is left to go down with the ship.
And they kicked Karen upstairs. It'll be interesting to see how this plays against earnings. I'm more worried than anything. It seem to suggest abysmal failure, but I sure hope I'm wrong.
I am wondering if they need more time to present results. Would such a situation cause a trading halt?
The faith in this stock is all used up. Might explode if they actually deliver, but that's what it'll take.
Go to Mirror UK and search for "mind blowing toy with virtual #$%$." It's a game controller that is flying off the shelves. DARREN! Stop playing with yourself and jump on this band wagon. It'll make us all rich, even if Hopeful will be forced to exit the stock.
