  • things will get better and the stock never goes up..I bought in at 4 dollars so I am down 50%..I feel that management is not being honest with us about the future prospects..I say this because they always promise that they are turning the corner..BUT they never do... and that they are just bleeding it until the eventual bk...am I missing something?

    yes they assigned me an 877 number..and when i googled inury lawyers orlando..i didnt see dex knows or dex media or superpages..i called them up and they said i was listed under yp ..apparantly all lawyer ads for dex are subcontracted out to yp...at least mine was..thats where i am now...ironically, i do believe that i would get more leads from the print book than from the web..why/ because theres still a large part of the poor people..the underclasses..black and latina (thats incidentally where the best PI cases come from--dont ask me why-its just true) and theres still alot of these people who use the print pages...alot of people i know have written off this as a source of leads..so i just may renew..but most likely wont

    I signed a deal with them last November under injury lawyers in Orlando Fl,,It was their start smart bundle..It cost 114 a month..700 up front and 60 a month for 12 months...Since I missed the print deadline, I am only in the online section..Since November I haven't even received 1 call, let alone a lead..not even I..In fact I barely even receive telemarketers calls on the 800 number that they have assigned for me..which is almost a shocker...I only signed up with them cause I wanted to sample the product that I was invested in...

    if we are making 100 million in FCF every quarter and this number will get weaker and weaker every year...and assuming that all of that goes to pay off the debts...we are still about 27 quarters away from getting all the debt paid off...that is 6 years and that assumes that we will continue churning out 100 million in FCF every quarter for the next 6 years..that is virtually impossible...The teachable lesson here is that the American Private sector, unlike the government, is so absolutely cutthroat that there really isn't any prize for second place..stay with the dow stocks....there really are only about 20 companies in the USA that have a stranglehold on commerce..I call them the #$%$%ole stocks,,,stay with them and u will sleep well at night

    The reason Kyle Bass sold a lot of shares is an admission that he was wrong..I am still carrying 800 shares at a new basis of 19 dollars..and I will sell most if we go on another run higher...I sincerely ask all of you guys to use their product and you will see for yourselves

  • lets have it

  • and then u will see for yourself

    im self employed and don't make a lot of money. I had 65k in this co, cost basis of 14 dollars ..when it got down to sub 5, I was having trouble sleeping at night..i promised myself that getting back to 0 would be a huge win..i sold 80% of my sharesat 12.40, and did reach my goal...so at 19, I will get back the rest...so really I bit off a lot more than I could chew..unless its coke, proctor and gamble or walmart etc etc, the lesson I learned is never take a large position in any co. that isn't guaranteed...and I will never forget that lesson

    don't laugh,,,thats not out of the realm of probability..remember this company has been around when most people who fought in the civil war were not even born yet...many things since then have threatened their business model, yet they have survived...stay tuned

    that's a tough one. Clearly, this will be raised on the call today, especially as costs were supposed to decrease due to the merger. Notice that they broke the results down between the first half and Q2not q2 and q1... lets see what they say at 10,

  • I think the shorts are in serious trouble..The report was very strong. The only downside I noticed was the eboitda margins. It dropped by 4% q2 over q1...Other than that It was almost a blowout.I have no regret selling most of my shares.I broke even which is what I wanted and I still have 800 shares, cost basis of 19 bucks. We now have 5 million shares that will have to be covered. DXM will set records on at least 3-4 days this quarter for price advances. If I were the shorts I would be in a full blown panic

    I see print continuing to decline at its forecasted rate of 19-21%. I doubt we will see digital growing at any more than high single digits..I predict we will see 7-9% digital growth at best. The reason I feel digital growth will continue at a very modest rate is b/c yelp and facebook and google are taking massive massive massive amounts of new market share....their revenue growth of these3 companies for online ads was simply astonishing in the last few cycles..The question then is: Who do u think they are taking market share from? They are taking market share from the old phone books like DXM..I am not only an investor in DXM, but am also a customer of DXM, and I am not at all happy with the responses I have received, and I am not renewing my DXM ads. I sold 80% of my position in DXM, and now have 800 shares at a new basis of about 19 bucks. I am very happy that I could get out and get all that money back. I really don't think this company has growth potential, but with that said, I think Bankruptcy is not going to happen as well. In the long run, I feel all its debts will be paid off and the shares will most likely go higher, but it will take a lot longer than most people think. In short this stock will trade like a bond in the next three years...slow and steady. I think the stock will go sideways with my predicted numbers....Good luck to all

  • still have 800 shares at a new cost basis of 20 dollars..heck if that goes to 0, who cares after what I could have lost..never again will I invest in a second rate company, after getting drunk at a kool aid party courtesy of a hedge fund manager who thinks he is a genius..never never again...henceforth i will hold only dow stocks and s and p stocks that are guaranteed..i thank god this day has come..i told myself that I would be the happiest person on this board if I could just break even..I still could lose the 15k that still remains (cost basis of 20) .if DXM goes to 0..but heck that wouldn't keep me up at night so who cares.....I will check back from time to time..but I wont be a slave to the share price anymore...I wish all of u god speed on the 11th

  • the run at 12.50 will be attempted

    seanoise..look at the alexa data...the google revenues from network partners was very strong...recall that last q2 and q3 DXM grew at a sbails pace....the spring is coiled for strong growth the next 2 quarters...the knock out punch will be fatal to yourself and the shorts..i dont want to argue with u anymore ,....take your losses like a man....

    the stats look great..the knock out punch for the shorts is coming in November..we will be over 20 dollars

  • lawshark93999 lawshark93999 Jul 17, 2014 4:17 PM Flag

    the revenue was much better than expected and that is the number that the goog premier partners are most affiliated with

  • then we should see a major bump tommorrow being that DXM is a premier goog partner

    and 1 more point..if we had a multiple amount of people/funds shorting this, the short interest would rise and fall..it would be very volatile..not so here...there is very low volatility in the short interest turnover..that lends credibility to the assumption that its just 1 guy

  • lawshark93999 lawshark93999 Jul 14, 2014 2:06 PM Flag

    I disagree..these shorts , whoever they are, are entrenched..i personally think its just 1 guy......1 quarter of solid earnings will not scare him off..look at the recent rise in the pps, the short interest barely budged..again whoever this is, someone like Bill Ackman..not Ackman, but someone like him has zeroed in on this stock like a tiger hunting down a thomposn gazelle in a pack of gazelles...he is hell bent on seeing this through..boom or bust..ive said many times..this is an extremely reckless bet this guy is taking...he is putting 7 plus figures of money on the table..its a get rich quick scheme...that is what it looks like....in fact i proffer that based on the short interest it is a bet of this mans lifetime and he will not surrender until he realizes its a completely lost cause...we now have almost the same as two weeks ago..5.3 million shares short..th rise in the pps hasnt phased this guy
