  • UVE is looking very good at these low prices. Enterprise value is only $400 million. If the company has profit of $20 million (which is $0.60 per share) for the current quarter, this stock could zoom to double its bargain price today. With the help of Bozo, UVE is currently like a compressed, well-coiled spring. P/E is much better than other insurers in the industry.

    The whole story...

    Wow, Bozza really is a neophyte. He made a lot of novice mistakes in his “best short pitch ever”. It looks like he is a bit out of his zone of competance in insurance companies. His attempts at quantifying were way off. I guess that is why he only makes pitches and PowerPoints and why he doesn’t actually run an operating company. He has a lot to learn about insurance companies. He neglected to mention that UVE actually has weathered many storms and that they actually have significant cash flow, preferring to hid that and only tried to focus on book value. Book value does not drive future valuation, cash flow drives future valuation which in turn drives stock price (at least when it is not being targeted by shorts). Also, a lot of Bozza’s intentional distortions are clear now.
    Did Bozza first contact the company to help the world and to try to be accurate? No, Bozza did not make these statements just out of the goodness of his soul for the intention of pointing out misdeeds to the regulators or for public investors. He did this to manipulate the markets for his own self-interest. Beware, Bozza perpetrated a short-and-distort scheme on a small cap company named UVE and now his scheme is winding down.

    This bear raid in time will pass

    You are correct. Volume and short interest is already starting to fade. The stock dropped by $11 on 11/17. Now, shorts have realized they have overplayed their hand. They could not keep up that pace. There is no way shorts are going to maintain positions and orders on this. They are manipulators and people with short attention spans. They are already weakening and the company has more than addressed the makeshift comments which were clearly exaggerations and unbalanced. It is now pretty clear the stock will not go to zero, contrary to the #$%$.d. of shorts who are now losing interest.

    Anthony T. Bozza and Whitney Tilson are going to jail for targeting low-volume, small cap companies?

    It is becoming more and more clear that these terrorists who have signed up to kill, sum their lives us in shame. The fact that multiple terrorists have been seen sweating like a pig before the final action. Their bodies don’t want to do this, they know that they are doing something wrong. Their minds know that they are doing something morally and ethically wrong. They are pressured into it based on prior agreement and the threat that they will be killed if they violate that agreement. It is becoming more and more clear that their final hours are loaded with shame and embarrassment and pressure. The ISIS organization is left with the embarrassment and the humiliation and guilt and sin of what they have done. How they are late to the site or how leaders cower in hiding after the planned activities and how their lives are wasted and how their flesh ends up splattered across the walls. It is a sting of embarrassment on the ISIS propagandists. Things are becoming far more clear.

    This one (IVAC) is headed over $6 per share. That was a great beat today IVAC beat estimates by 20%. They also beat on revenues. And stronger than expected orders too. I hope I can buy in below $6.

    How about this one:
    David W. Petty has served as Exactech’s Chief Executive Officer since March 2014, and he has served as President since November 2007. Mr. Petty previously served the Company in various capacities in the areas of operations and sales and marketing since joining the Company in 1988. From February 2000 to November 2007, Mr. Petty served as Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, from 1993 to 2000, he served as Vice President of Marketing and, from April 1991 until April 1993, he served as Vice President of Operations. Mr. Petty received his B.A. from the University of Virginia in 1988 and completed The Executive Program of the Darden School of Business in 1999.
    Mr. Petty’s long-term experience with the Company and in marketing orthopaedic products, make him a valuable contributor to our strategy and growth.

  • Mannatech is caught in political cross fire. The article tries to make it sound like Mannatech is some sort of fly-by-night pseudo corporation. Media and political foes will do whatever they can to tarnish a candidate. Actually Mannatech is a global upstanding corporation for over 20 years. Companies will always have lawsuits. A lawsuit is just a ticket to court. People are innocent until proven guilty (at least that is how it used to be and is supposed to be). Can anyone list a company that has never had a trigger-happy lawyer file a lawsuit against it?

    Valuation of Support

    Investors don't like what SPRT is selling. And since revenue is down, it appears that customers don't like what SPRT is selling either.
    In May, when the stock was around $1.45 - $1.50, I had predicted it would be at $1.10 per share this year. Now, it is there (a bit sooner but pretty much as I had expected). You could tell because management was setting targets for bonuses based on negative growth and on negative net income. Probably, it will hit the $0.85 per share over the next 2-3 yrs. Management is continuing to get nice bonuses. Number of outstanding shares is up. Due your due diligence.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
