    Don't be bothered over your choice of expressions, friend. Your words are just fine. Actually, the back and forth of all of us does not touch the volume of the available news surrounding us with regard to the strength of JAKK sales occurring right now. This is one unusual situation where we don't even need an update from the company or an earnings-related pre-announcement to inform us that sales will be higher than expected....although I would not be surprised at all if we get such a pre-announcement come January.

    What's going on with the stock price is just noise for the moment, IMO. I figure sticking with good ole' commons sense will work well this time vs. trying to figure out or rationalize the irrational. That common sense says that JAKKs Pacific is selling the mess out of its products and that it could not be in a sweeter spot. The only conclusion is that we have a steal of a price here because the stock price is not reacting to what is plainly in view. I think talking about not getting shook out fits pretty well here and now. Why not go with good ole common sense and take advantage like you did today vs. going with nonsense and wringing the hands because the stock price is not momentarily merging with good ole' common sense. It will, IMO....that is, the stock price will merge with good ole' common sense.

    Like I said....a short; your horn only plays one song. "Hey y'all, performance doesn't matter. They could make .05 or .15 or .20....doesn't matter......the shorts are in charge here." That's a fitting mantra for a short.

    We all know about the convertible debt and, yes, it's hard to sustain trading above the conversion price often. However, with you, it's an "absolute." That is not true, though. The more you post, the more I'm certain you represent the short interest. Not even most shorts could be as certain as you; certainly, longs are not going to believe that performance "can't" be impressive enough to overcome the conversion lid. The outlook here just keeps building steam.

    I tried to post this a moment ago but it did not post. I own VII from the low 1.60s and believe it will go much higher soon. The cheapest stocks, though, I can find in the related space are vtsi and bfdi. I say cheap, not because they are trading in the pennies, but because they both are profitable and have prospects for strong growth, going forward. FWIW but you find them worth your time to check out if you haven't already. VTSI is completely off radar, IMO.

    This unclegary guy was over at the bfdi board earlier today pushing his stock. I told him about VTSI and suppose that's why he is over here now. I agree totally.....one company with no revenue and bleeding money right and left and VTSI making money with solid fundamentals and on the cusp of mega growth positioned just right....and the stock pricing of the two....go figure. VTSI, as WWRP said....patience will have its day here soon.

    OT: VTSI

    Yes, it is greteldog. They are in Gander Mountain retail stores. They got a big contract recently with the U.S. Homeland Security (Border Patrol) and are contracted with various law enforcement agencies throughout the country. Additionally, I see the potential for the home market too. There are people who would pay the price for the simulators. BTW, VTSI has a patent on a gadget that a law enforcement officer can attach to his/her person and it simulates what it's like to be shot in the line of fire....teaching them how to prepare for such an event and to properly respond to being wounded....sort of like a reverse taser. Also, it's noteworthy, IMO, that TASR is located just several miles away from VTSI's headquarters. They would make an interesting team.

    If BFDI has moved up this much today (touching .38) on less than 400K shares, can you imagine what it would do on another 5M share day like several months ago?? Say, on a contract announcement??

  • hopeful200 by hopeful200 Dec 2, 2014 12:28 PM Flag

    I've mentioned this one before and just mentioned it here moments ago in a reply post. This one is really unusual, IMO, relative to its opportunity vs. its price. Uptab mentioned it to me a long while back. I bought around it at around .06 or so and held for a good while but finally sold at no profit. However, due to recent contract announcements that will easily double its annual revenues (btw, VTSI is already profitable with solid financials), I got back into VTSI, starting in the .07s but I've brought my average up to close to .11 by continuing to add.

    VTSI's products for training law enforcement are timely and should easily garner more and more attention, IMO. The stock remains off radar, IMO. You never know with stocks, of course, but it seems that VTSI is an excellent bet for an investment in the present environment and given that it already is profitable and has not even begun to reflect the benefits of recent big contract business.

    IMO,
    Hopeful

    ....a long time in coming; but BFDI may actually be better positioned than even prior to Baltimore. As Aaron pointed out, that article in the Baltimore Sun was overdue but it was nice to see some words of vindication toward what BFDI was up against in Baltimore when it got that contract and how unreasonable expectations were for BFDI.
    You would think the state of Maryland might benefit disproportionately relative to some jurisdictions from the Federal govt's planned grant/matching program.

    If you want a deep value penny stock that is fixing to grow like a weed based on recent contract announcements, is already profitable and is in exactly the right space to benefit, check out VTSI.

    THE TRUTH EXPOSED

    Steve,
    We are well and hope y'all are too.
    I just picked up a little PVA at 5.21 for a trade. It does appear to be way overdone.....I also got some RIG around 21 the other day and plan to add if it gets in the 18s and again significantly if it sees the 16s. The whole energy sector, as well as precious metals, have been creamed!
    Hopeful
    P.S. I like that PVA is hedged well too. Thanks.

  • Looking at DGLY, we might, IMO.

    Aaron,
    Good to hear from you; I read that online very early this morning. (now they start telling the truth!!??)

    I have not "added" to bfdi in a long time; was not able to get much as there seem to be several ready buyers now.....good sign..... added 40K today, at .2999 and at .33.

    Thanks,

    Yea, the news today about big Federal spending on wearable cameras and other security measures should fuel VTSI's tank. It stands to see its share of that money, IMO.

    SA writer has a hard on for RCKY

    by smaycs4 Dec 1, 2014 2:28 PM
    hopeful200 hopeful200 Dec 1, 2014 3:42 PM Flag

    That really was a poor piece of work. SA should screen articles better. The gist of it was:
    "Hey, I was right last quarter when I said the RCKY underperforms this one analyst's projection. RCKY has missed several times, you know, and I'm betting they will again this time. So, since the 15s has pretty much been where the stock has topped out since this era of disappointment, you better sell 'cause' I might be right again....about the part of RCKY disappointing, that is."

    What a bunch of hogwash. Where does he acknowledge that management stated that RCKY saw delayed sales due to warm weather "already" hit the present quarter's sales? Where does he acknowledge the unusual cold weather this quarter that is likely to push sales this time? Where does he say anything other than you better sell before RCKY disappoints again? What a sorry piece of communication, IMO.

    I'll give it to you; you are not like most shorts. You have shot straight throughout any interactions I've had with you. Best to you; who knows what's next. Look at last night and then today. I would have never believed it.

    Maybe we'll make up for the disappointment thus far with another stock we own. I don't think the convertible debt here or anything else will be able to constrain the stock price. There is way, way too much ammo now. Thanks.

    Well, knowing your prior posts I've read, I sure don't take anything you say personal or to heart....no offense. Also, I hope you are very right with your wish, especially for those who held all their shares for better days. Everyone who has lived to see a better day here deserves some much, much better times here!!!

    I'm totally ok, though and more than thankful, wiping a little sweat off my brow, given the size of my position before unloading that 60 percent. Not knowing whether BFDI would finally turn the corner and, if so, how long it might take to achieve profits again, it was a decision I certainly would make again, without hesitation based on what I knew that day. After all, I owned a lot of shares from around the dime level and was able to sell in the .30s on that big volume run-up day (the day I posted my action here)....sure could have been worse....but congrats to BFDI management for turning the ship around.

    Yes, I missed out on selling that 60 percent in the .60s and .70s (actually added some in that .60s range)and yes, hopefully, I will end up missing out on having been able to sell the 60% much higher than even the .60s or .70s up ahead. However, I also transitioned my money into a couple of stocks that did wonderfully well. So, again, from disappointment to much better days, I'm sure not taking that for granted. No siree, I'll no complain if we are off to the races here soon!

    The remainder of my position, I carry are higher average cost basis shares and I am still below water on them, but won't be for long if this company catches some contract breaks and gets more investor attention. The attention looks like it's already happening. Hope you own shares and not just posting.

    IMO,
    Hopeful

    When you look at a DGLY, anything is possible here. I agree with you that a contract announcement would really get the ball rolling. I mean, it is already rolling but we could see some major fireworks....that would help many here who deserve to have their patience and long-suffering over the Baltimore disappointment rewarded. Maybe that second big chance at seeing a much stronger BFDI is arriving. Thanks.
