These guys are incompetent boobs. Best hope is the stock drops to $6, on a bad earnings report...and we get a 2nd chance for a sale of the company at maybe $12. Or maybe the sleazy Chinese outfit comes back in with a bid?
I think it's going lower before it has a chance of going higher. You can bet that these numskulls took there eye TOTALLY off the operations, while they were trying to sell the company.
I do sometimes put 10-15% of my net worth in single situations. Claude is not one of them, however. ACI and COCO are.
I told you my avg cost is 25 cents. That leaves plenty of room for upside for me.
Dividends are for investors committed to mediocrity.
Nearly 6 million shares.....including a block of 500k bought at .135, the last week of December.
Nice to see it finally bouncing off the bottom.
Every company is going bankrupt....someday. Or liquidating. It's in the nature of these things. What does that have to do with life on this earth, right now?
Arch has liquidity out the wazoo, and talk of bankruptcy reveals you as the rank amateur, and charlatan, that you are.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
The FCF is shrinking at s GREATER rate than the debt. Over the long run, that is a problem. Unless you can suddenly have this biz come into favor, and chop their interest rates in half on a refi. But that's not going to happen.
The debt is too large, relative to the value of the internet properties.
This is a buy at $2-2.50.....and a sell at $4-5. Eventually, equityholders will be severly diluted. Probably.
Do they have any credibility, if they are not willing to PAY UP?
Have any of you out there actually SOLD a block to the company, or HEARD of them buying blocks? I'd like to know.
I'm hesitant to buy more here, because i'm afraid that it just doesn't pass the smell test. Can anyone reassure me? Have you ever visited the company....or met Kang?
They estimate long term annualized growth of 5% for suspension assemblies. A GROWING market, in which HTCH is GAINING significant market shares, turns this back into a BONAFIDE GROWTH COMPANY again, in the Street's eyes. The fact that we are a TECHNOLOGY company makes it all the better. The fact that we have new SEXY areas for growth, outside of the core business, is ALSO exciting.
I personally expct the company to achieve material profitability in the BACK HALF of this fiscal year, and believe this has a good chance of being an $8-12 stock in the next 12-18 months.
HTCH is one of my top 8 holdings.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
and appears to,be selling, "automatically," any time the stock gets up into the mid $15's.
I think it's a pretty devastating commentary that, knowing they would otherwise be "locked out" of the market, as insiders, they set up a way to "keep unloading stock," before the window closed in December.
I almost feel sorry for the Primecap folks.....true believers if there ever was one. (Like Primecap is going to know more than Becker....gheesh.)
LOL. Still think all the CAUTIONS he gave in the last conf call mean that he did NOT see anything spectacular happening in the Xmas quarter.
Primecap is going to get a bad case of buyer's remorse. But, frankly, even better would be if they "took the stock up," on a poor earnings release, in blind faith in Rouleau. That would provide a JCP type shorting opportunity....when all those idiots thought Ron Johnson was going to single handedly "revolutionize" the company.
As it stands now, Primecap is the EXCLUSIVE reason this stock got up into the mid teens. if it weren't for them, I'm convinced we'd be at $8-9 now. (Basically, they bid AGAINST THEMSELVES for this stock, and recklessly drove it up, irrespective of the fundamentals. They will PAY for such stunning impetuosity.)
Sentiment: Strong Sell
I would hardly call taking 25% off, when the stock was down nearly 2 points, from my average shorting price, "gambling." In fact, I would call it PRUDENT, or even hedging, against the possibility of a better than expected earnings report.....or, even on a poor earnings report, that the fine feathered folks at Primecap, in their erudition, chase this stock up regardless.
Wil reshort at $14.95 and up.
I rereviewed the conference call transcript earlier today. Rouleau has a BOATLOAD of cautions about the "multiyear" nature of the turnaround. There are no doubts in my mind that even primecap will NOT be interested in buying this stock...after the earnings release at the end the month.....and Rouleau's pending additional "sky is blue, but it's going to take us years" nonsense.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
From peak to trough, TUES was down more, on a percentage basis, than BBBY.
Primecap doesn't scare me. But i did cover some of my short, at a decent profit, over the last few days...because i believe in taking gains.
congratulations....but YOU were not actually short BBBY....so you don't get credit for that. Besides, the catalyst for the TUES decline (the sales and earnings release) hasn't happened yet, dummy.
