I'm a bit concerned about revenues, but even more concerned over CFO and others leaving,
May not be a problem, just something to watch for now.
A lot of other companies didnt have a Reputation Manager. DXM got so beat up previously, that I suspect a ringer. It has to be very hard to work for Dex right now.
Small business has an increasing amount of choices, with DXM becoming less significant all the time.
If youre asking the questions, I think you have the picture.
Total revenues increased 9.7% to $206.5 million
Total restaurant operating weeks increased 10.4%
Comparable restaurant sales increased 0.3%, driven by a 0.7% increase in guest counts, partially offset by a lower average check
So, revenues are actually down per store week, and comps increased only .3% ( point three percent, as in one third of a percent.
Incredible 27% pop up given the realities.
I know that this is a lot harder to estimate than simple pension costs.
Why does the government interest rate have such a big effect on non-pension post-retirement costs such as healthcare? I would have thought insurance rates were the biggest variable.
Trying to understand what bearing a company's cash position would have on the multiple ( P/E ) ?
" Unisys trades at roughly 9x estimated 2015 earnings before accounting for its net cash position "
Youre right, Uber deal isnt much of a reason to do anything, its a non-event. Just an excuse to sell off a bit after the 16% Pandora runup for little reason last week.
Looking at deal, at first I was put off by premium HAL paid to get Baker. But they paid pretty much what they had planned to, due to the pullback of BHI pps recently.
I think the deal is a win. HAL may drop more, so I have so money in reserve for more purchases. Long term, BHI will prove to be a great buy.
Ok, great propaganda speech, but the question was why is this down.
PPS had spiked on news of executive shakeup, but I think the market is now seeing its not such an easy "fix".
Ongoing losses, debt, etc cant be resolved overnight, especially with the history of those execs now in charge. They arent what was needed to lead the "digital charge".
But other than being worthless and in debt, .... its a buy?
Actually, wouldnt DEX have to come up with over $2 Billion to pay down debt in order to be simply worthless?
"Now, turning to first quarter 2014 financial results. Total multi-platform ad sales for the first quarter declined 12.9% as compared to the same period last year. Print declined 19.7% and digital grew 8.5%."
For the first quarter, Dex Media reported pro forma combined revenue of $486 million, a 16.4% decline compared to the same period last year. Adjusted pro forma expenses were $292 million and Adjusted pro forma EBITDA was $194 million, with a margin of 39.9%. These results do include a one-time credit-to-expense during the first quarter." Dee Jones
The company expects contraction of margins as print declines. So even if digital could grow as fast as print declines, which is very doubtful, profits would still decline. That combined with high level of debt, is not a promising situation.
You got one, how much are they?
Can you tell me which way AEZS is headed next
week so I can make enough to get my own time machine?
You cant sue someone for expressing an opinion, yet.
I also think AEZS is oversold and at these levels is a buy due to pipeline.
Bad news for oil means good news for bears.
As oil gets cheaper people have more discretionary dollars, and they of course immediately start thinking where they can get cheap imported Chinese toy bears. This stock is sure to triple in next three days.
100 plus up day and this stock is down 5%?
What gives? ... is it going to be a bad bear Christmas?
Gigafactory was always a distraction from core business that Tesla did not need.
There was never a shortage of flashlight batteries.
Will it go ahead as planned, get downsized, or get scrapped altogether?
