    buyback mainly

    I have owned the stock since 2005. The latest earnings report indicates that NTP has repurchased a little less than one million shares. That is about 18% of the projected buyback. Today would be a good day for them to buy another few thousand shares :) Hopefully, NTP will continue its buyback at a faster pace between now and November.

    The earnings report suggests that the land development plans are on track which is good news. Also, they indicate that they are looking for other investors to join them in the development. If this were to happen,I think that would be a good sign.

    I have no first hand info about Kellogg and Kahn,but I do recall reading that Kahn increased his holdings back in the late spring. I would be interested in whether Kellogg and Kahn have made any changes (plus or minus) in their holdings. If you find out, please let us know.

  • Looking at the update it appears that the company has bought back about $ 4 million dollars worth of shares as of June 30th. This represents 10% of the $40 million buyback it announced in May. If NTP plans to meet the $40 million dollar number by November it is going to have to significantly increase its rate of share repurchase unless there is a considerable increase in share price over the next several months.

    But the profit( cash flow) guide was up...

  • I'm looking at IEP for the first time. It shows a 6% dividend,but the dividend seems to fluctuate considerably both in amount and month of payment. Can someone give me some insight regarding the dividend history ? Is this an appropriate stock for a dividend investor ?

    Put the "bad" news( decreased earnings) upfront and then buried the "good" news(increased cash flow).

    As of May 15th shorts were holding a little over a million shares. I wonder how many have covered since then ?

    15,000 shares trading at the open and another 16,000 shares trading moments later taking the stock higher. It's Wednesday so I'm wondering if NTP has decided to make at least some of its buys at Wednesday openings., keeping in mind that two consecutive Wednesdays does not a trend make.
