  • Everyone says DVD'S are dead. OUTR symbol for redbox aint rolled over and died yet. If it turns out to be true and nflx buys them out now, way ,way off their yr highs, they make out, if redbox goes under, it still means more revenues coming to nflx. Either way they win. Right now OUTR is at about 56.92. This will either be a 10 dollar stock in 1-2 yrs or 100-130. I for one love to be able to grab something on impulse coming home from my local Publix supermarket. And walmart where these things are all over, they are the kind of people who would rather lay out a dollar or 2 at a time and some cant afford any contracts woth NFLX...especially since we know they are going to go up fast...and soon. How can you count out any rival that will let you watch a movie for $1.29????????????? ALL THEY NEED IS TO JUST GET A LITTLE BIT BETTER CONTENT. The movies that hollywood has put out the last few yrs is so bad unless you are age 12, its a drag on the whole movie industry. Watch movies go back to $5 or $8 with a free popcorn and soda. I cant see anyone paying $10 to see the garbage they have out today. But if you pay 1.29 thru redbox, you dont care if the movie stinks because you are right at home and can just pop in another dvd.

    I think the lack of good quality movies, for adults especially really have taken its toll. Remember when blockbuster was open, youd see people rent 3 or 4 videos at a time. Now I rent one video at a time. I also think that blockbuster allowed people to catch up in 5 yrs all the movies they couldnt see in the prior 15. And even the biggest hits...come on...how many times can you watch Pulp Fiction, Goodfellas and the Godfather? I say the whole movie industry , streaming or otherwise is in for abig shakeup. Partly social media like facebook is to blame as well because you cant be in the movie theater if you are on facebook and google groups and twitter. Im glad I have a fairly tight stop loss under this puppy.

  • In Florida I see gas at $3.06 on average. Thats prices of 5 yrs ago! Is this because of decreased oil demand or because planes and cars will all be much lighter due to aluminum? And how will transporting costs change to benefit metals and mining co's? Who and what sectors will benefit the most if gas stays at these levels?

    Sentiment: Buy

  • No volume on what would be the equivelent for NY what resorts intl was for atlantic city and daytraders and speculators arent trading 10-20 million shares of this lottery ticket just on hopes and dreams? This is a dead stock. It trades like some scam OTC dog, am I right? Im dying to buy in but the volume is rediculous. I actually was a groom here 30 yrs ago and then got my drivers license here many yrs later and I feel for these horsemen. They work like dogs for lousy $1200 purses and cant even feed their families. I got out of the business because this place went nowhere. This place should have been owned by Al Capone in the 30's. It is such a lovely little race track and they even had a top floor lounge that was dark with velvet couches so you could make out with your girl in the dark all night and spend maybe 20 or 30 bucks gambling. It was insane. But it was too far for new yorkers to get to just to play horse with tiny betting pools. Very sad.

    17,000 shares might just be a "plump sucker" who recieved an advert about this stock in the mail, who knows? It could also be priming this thing to gap up tomorrow so the shorts can start hammering it some more. Why do all humans read into stock movement what they want. eg-if this was a OTC stock and jumped 4% after hours we would laugh at anyone who thought itb was smart money. Remember too....goldman sachs, merrill and all the big firms have been ripped off for hundreds of millions over the years and the money im sure is in places totally untracable. You all forget Global Crtossing and Enron so very quickly. And this thing has nothing near the market cap of Enron nor the prestige institutions behind it or the famous financial whiz's running it! I repeat myself again...this either goes to 50 in a year or under 5 bucks. Period.

    CENX VS. AA

    mince38 mince38 Oct 22, 2014 1:00 AM Flag

    I hope so. But with a peg ratio of .41, that means AA is so rediculously undervalued I dont get it. Also, they have a return on assets of -14%!!!! Nobody can stay in business being in the red on return on assets for long. Why are they not profiting for every dollar they invest? Also ,why is there no insider buying. They dont even own 1% of the co.!!!!! While CENX mgmt OWNS OVER 40%. Now who would be more motivated to show up early for work every day?

    Sentiment: Buy

    if you are right, and thats a big if...why cant redbox sell codes you could enter on your computer to watch streaming on your own computer or tv. Maybe even partner with netflix on this? Do you think they will actually waste all those machines in walmart and supermarkets it took them years to get in? If just one creative moron in this company has a plan B for the vending machines if your prediction is right, we will explode. In fact, whats stopping them from expanding into target and best buy and even other countries? Sure they could go the way of blockbuster. But they dont require employees and huge rental spaces so everything is all profit pretty much.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    CENX VS. AA

    I really wish I could find out how much AA could sell their metals for compared to CENX and still be profitable. Im wondering with CENX doing so much better lately than AA, maybe CENX can sell at lower prices, just not to big boys like Boeing like AA have as customers. Why the heck is AA getting its butt kicked by CENX when it has 5 yrs of guaranteed income just with Boeing?

    Sentiment: Buy

  • mince38 mince38 Oct 22, 2014 12:21 AM Flag

    yeah right. Im sure its his own money too. (eyes roll) And was that in his demo account? -) Seriously, with the best day weve had in the market in weeks and this POS IS DOWN, it seems if any bad news comes out at all this will take a big haircut. To me, either this stock is worth $50 a share or $2 a share. It depends whos doing the accounting. I'd like to buy both puts and longs on this baby but I hate buying melting assets. Can we all agree this thing has almost no chance of being this price s ame time next year? How about next month?!!! I love this stock but you cant beat the tape. I invite all of you to read my other posts on when to get back in after I got stopped out for a tiny loss many points higher.

    Sentiment: Hold

    Can someone please tell me why CENX continues to have such a tiny market cap compared to AA? I looked at the financials , especially forward p/e and return on equity and CENX is killing AA, yet AA has that 5 yr contract with boeing airlines which doesnt seem to be affecting the price as much as even CENX is running. What is the case of buying one company over the other. They both look like buys, but CENX more so, yet both companys are barely break even on return on equity!!!! What does CENX have in its future to warrant pulling so far ahead of AA especially since its not even breaking even in return on equity or barely so.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • I told you guys 15 reasons over several posts why in the end the tape, or the price chart always tells the true story. We all even thought it was cheap at its $22 top. Why is no one mortgaging their house and taking out loans now, then? What does your "gut" tell you. Read my past posts, I even gave stop and back in numbers. Ive been a swing trader for many years.

    But who can compete with them as far as pricing, , impulse shopping, and all the walmarts and supermarkets they have their vending machines in? Location, location, location. The numbers and their domination in this arena have to merge. And my opinion is this will skyrocket. The numbers dont make sense. It would be like buying microsoft 5 yrs after they came out and had the majority of the market share and still growing. Who can oust these guys. Besides...when I leave my supermarket or walmart...Im hungry. Whats the first thing a person wants to do when he is hungry? Eat and.........yep, watch the tube! And those late fees I pile up thinking I will return it the next day...whew!

    Shorts Covering

    by beijing_investor Sep 23, 2014 3:43 PM
    mince38 mince38 Sep 24, 2014 12:33 AM Flag

    Everyone said the shorts were covering when this was 21. Most of the high volume days were up days to boot. Charts dont lie. The daily chart is under the 8 and maybe the 20 sma by now. Swing traders know.......you never buy long term in a downward trend. Dont give me what this was last year. This thing is going backwards while the market roars upwards. What happens when the market corrects? Wth....maybe this thing will blow our minds and take off if the market corrects 15-20%. And we are so due for a correction we are almost in "this has never happened in history" territory for the overall market.

    Sentiment: Hold

    ronson....Form your mouth to God's ears as my dear departed grandmother would say. I hope she goes to 100 in the next 12-18 months. But....price doesnt lie and neither do charts and this thing has been bleeding red for weeks. We shall see.......

    Sentiment: Hold

  • mince38 mince38 Sep 13, 2014 7:26 PM Flag

    I want you to be right. But the charts are showing that theres more selling pressure than buying pressure. Even with its small capitalization, it should be over 25 by now. Someone have the book keeper call me. -)

    Sentiment: Hold

  • mince38 mince38 Sep 13, 2014 7:21 PM Flag

    Often reverse mergers are a big sign of weakness. Lookup last 10 reverse mergers and tell us how they are doing. But overall they are bleeding red. When this thing went under its 8 sma on the daily, that was the time to get out. This stock trends very well for swing traders. I wouldnt buy till its back over 17 for a nibble 18 for anything serious. And 22 for a 2nd add on.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • ...we all know 'the story' behind this stock. Now of course Warren Buffett and George Soros and even Donald Trump and other REAL savvy investors whoa rent reporters or press release writers...........ohhhhh Im sure their people just6 dont know about this stock yet, or cant find out, We are smarter than their whole staff. Throw in another 2 or 300 "pro's" who would gobble this up at this price in 2 minutes if this was real. So...we have 2 scenarios............

    1- Either we did stumble onto that once a year opportunity that miraculously is still under the radar.

    or........

    2-if something sounds too good to be true, it is.

    It must be one or the other, am I right? At least I am willing to say "Anything is possible." I would love to read true stories in ayear from now of brave men who mortgaged their house at 6% to buy this stock which surely must appreciate way more than that IF THIS IS REAL. But.....did we all forget Enron all too quickly and how they fooled the 'smartest guys in the room"....of which we are not. We just arent close enough to the company. So is it behind door number 1, or door #2????

    Please....I want to kick myself when this is at 25 in one-two weeks with assive black candles on the chart. Thats the way this is going to rise. Its going to go up so fast the average guy wont have time to buy in. Agreed? Then again the small retailers are so stubborn if this declines it will be very very slow...like death by 1000 cuts. We will all jump in if this goes down to 7 and then jumps quickly back to 9 again,wont we? Thats the way I would do it . But if this is legit it will suddenly go up so fast on so little news your head will spin. Right?

    Sentiment: Buy

  • No one is focusing on directly competing with it as they think its for ghetto and white trash kids. Partly they are right. But if Twitter can capture the "Robb report market and the sachs fifth ave crowd to make it fashionable to twitter, if they could get stores to hold 5 min sales all thruout the day at bloomies and Macys and women are looking at it all day as they wander around the mall, then we have something. But right now we have school girls with pimples and no cash to spend on twitter making up all the numbers. And some bangers annd rappers and hookie players as well. They better get more sophisticated users as this is like being Google in the beginning. If they stay the way they are someone any minute is going to trash this co. Can anyone say microsoft, apple or google. I cant believe apple wont want their own version soon anyway. You better believe its coming faster than a silk glove up a dead fishes........... I say twtr is at $5 in 2 yrs or 105$

    Not enough. I say every correctional officer too, especially them, so guys who get raped in showers dont have to be ashamed. Its all on camera. And nobody in prison should have any rights to privacy from cameras. Too much at stake.

    And as usual, the individual retail guys like us pay for it! What reason would this thing have droped over 1.50 per share since the deal. In my opinion, dilution always puts a drag on the stock...forever. If we get bought out at 52.50 a share in the future, the real price would be 53 without this dilution. But thats ok ,unless they wind up whoring the co away and keep diluting. If we see another huge deal like this for 5 times the size after we get back to our yearly high of about 21, we will be sucking wind and carrying dead weight for 12-24 months just to get the institutions out of their stock. Remember the dealmakers and institutions motto: Always be a seller, never a buyer.." I know, I was a stockbroker and thats the golden carrot our bosses gave us...."there will always be winners who buy stock. But the real money is always been and always will be in SELLING stock! Nobody ever made money by buying. Lets hope we are sellers with happy faces in about 2-3 years. We dont want any buyouts just yet! -)

    Sentiment: Buy
