more buyers than sellers ... that's usually the case ..
but why do you say "shares tanking" ??? VZ is trading in a range ... now , with FIOS growth ,
VOD in fold , and a new TV offering .. it sure looks like growth coming .. breakout from the range
very likely to be to the upside ...
It is a horrifying stock to own ... pretty scary , anyway ... an exceptional Q2 and most
likely a very robust Q3 do not spell a trend for cyclical company ...
HD needs to find a way to get 12 months of good revs ... i'm sure that many locations
are pretty much the same month to month , but the northern sites are very
tied to seasons .... maybe partnering with some other companies to lease out
20-30% of those stores with 3-4 zombie months ... like maybe Gander Mountain
could have 1000 sq ft from Nov-Mar in stores that are not nearby GM's locations .. g
to STOP listening to those voices in your head ... we've been at see for a long time , "Mr. Christian !!! the
crew needs some sweet water !!" .... meanwhile , Ahab Scully and Fishmeal Campbell scour the
seas in the search of the great white consumer product .... land hasn't been seen in months .... the harbor
princesses long to see the SS EMA put into port ....
if it was such a good deal , then Hal would have either bought the outfit, or partnered and
pony up some quid .... it was a good story at one time , but that's all ... however , if
you want to see some real lunacy , check out the MCP board ... those guys have
been cheerleading from 70 down to 3 and still think it's going to rocket to the moon !!!
not at all ... i drank Cramer's koolaid , then watched HEK for a few months , then decided to
wade in to the deep end ... when the RS was announced , i ran , took a small loss and now
am okay watching ... been there, done that , the shorts are strangling this stock and it will
eventually go to low single digits , if not BK ....
analyze EVERYTHING that you have at your disposal ... consider :
1) a lot of shorting was done at/over 18 , these guys have a nice profit and the the Stifel report could
be a good excuse to lock in some profit
2) the rise from covering a small portion of the short position will raise the pps
3) shorts getting ready to reload ...
other than the Stifel thing , there has been no news to move the stock and a single house making a
rec is not enough ... can you remember when Cramer drooled all over Mr, Hekmann ? the stock did
well for a while ...eh ?
yup , and there is no law stating that successful investors(even insiders) cannot reap their
harvests ... regulations are in place to make sure that such actions are done publicly ...
as long as their 13d's were in order , this is a non event ... g
besides , Frank has probably been selling pretty well over the past year or so , knowing that
he's going to another pasture .. g
from the king of returns ??? you cannot return clearance items and s/o's require a 15% restocking fee ..
was your item in one of those catagories ? Or did you damage it ?
???? why ? if i was a firm looking to take it private , i'd let the shorts kill it and buy very cheap around 3 or 4 .... who will do the buying to cause that squeeze ?
you only get a short squeeze on 1) established companies that suffer a prolonged downturn before
getting their act together and rise sharply ... 2) small companies that languish for a long time
with little results and finally stumbling on success ..
shorts are not stupid and with an issue like NES , they have their knives sharp ... g
if true , then i would consider that action to be one of desperation .. this thing just doesn't have
fundamentals ... besides HAL .. who are they partnered with ?? they have not been growing anything
organic , but have had plenty of time ..
IF , NES services were better/cheaper than others , they would have tons of business at this juncture and
plenty of capital for growth ...
just like in baseball ... bat .300 and succeed like crazy .. swing for the fences and
strikeout often ... if your losses are 5-10% and wins are 20-50% , then you should
wind up ahead of the game ... g
it's been that way for 150 years ... the electorate needs a real hard kick in the #$%$ before it does something ..
