I find it funny that he says below $2 here and over $7.00 there.
He's been bashing RICK since $7.50 and it doesn't work.
Sorry, he said $7.50, here it is;

My Fannie is up 70% now.$5 is in the bag!
$7.50 coming soon.
Posted it just last week.
Notice how he bashed here yesterday as the stock pulled back below $4.85? He was only bashing for about an hour, and that was the best hour to be BUYING. Hummm.....
Is this the same jonathan from the AEO message board? Are you ok, or just bashing to buy a little lower?
The store closings are good since they will result in $500M/yr in savings. That will push up an already strong cash flow. Why keep under-performing stores open? They are huge stores and just not worth the expenses if they aren't adding to the bottom line.
I'd like to see Staples offer delivery services to businesses if they don't already. You go to their website, click what you want, and a Staples delivery person shows up in a van from a nearby distribution center, or store. Same day! That would be the ultimate "Easy Button".
I'm in at $11.30 with the dividend almost 4.25%
He reminds me of an older, more senile Juggles.
That's why I said average to show it in simple terms.
What I would like to know is, was their expansion costs higher in the year ago period. Vivid New York should have been mostly expensed in Q4, and not Q1. So what did they really build in Q1 2014 other than one Bombshells? A year ago they were building Ricky Bobbys, Vee Lounge, Bombshells, and a few clubs weren't they? That would make the year ago's earnings that much better than this years if they posted that .28 with so much construction going on. And it would make the .25 last quarter look even weaker.
Very sad to see you go, even though you annoy me most of the time. I wish shareholders had someone with a stronger say. That's the biggest drawback of this company.
I'm strongly against a REIT. I need to see tangible assets on the balance sheet to go with the earnings. Take away the real estate and all you have left is earnings, which is fine unless you have lawsuits and pole taxes due. And I believe the rents would have to go up because the owners of the real estate would then be in control and want to show increases in earnings. I think RICK without the real estate isn't worth owning. I think they should own higher quality real estate and avoid anything but.
Please don't leave this board!
They are two clearly different posters. Bark doesn't take people on like heisenburg/shorting.ricks does. I like both posters and wish they would both attend a conference call just once. I would pay to be present at that one.
He's actually right on this. A company hoping to increase earnings 20% for the year should show a 20% gain in each quarter. If said company was making an even $1.00/sh for the year, they would need to see each quarter go to .30/sh from .25/sh average. hate to say it, but that is a 20% gain in each and every quarter of the year (average).
You're correct. $36M in EBITDA is very strong for a stock with a $144M market cap at $2.46. That's about 25% of market cap which better than WYNN and other strong companies. They still grew the cash by $1.5M which reduces net debt.
The CEO can't control what the government allows for contracts. My neighbor works for a company that relies on government contracts, and he warned me of trouble in the last 2 quarters. But they now have a budget at allows more defense spending. To survive the last 2-3 quarters and come out poised for good things is a solid achievement. I look 2-3 quarters ahead, not back. Y-O-Y comps will certainly start being positive again in 2014. The net debt will continue to fall and government contracts will pick up. I can't speak for today with the futures down big, but I bet this stock out performs 90% of the market this year easily.
No margin account for me. I simply buy spec stocks and dividend stocks with profits from winners. The winners I have watched and studied for a long time before I buy.
My best guess is that MM's are trying to frustrate short term traders. Nobody wants the short-termers to win big when a big move finally comes. or at least that is the feeling I get when a stock stays in a tight range and the range gets smaller and smaller. Lower highs and higher lows means the sling-shot formation is building.
Some buys are very very easy. I think HIMX at $1 was the easiest decission ever for me. The balance sheet screamed "BUY". TSYS is slowly improving. Just keep chipping away at that net debt and it gets more and more solid. Love to see more big cities onboard with the 911 thing. Like to see Tose say something positive in that regard.
