I don't think the registered shares are counted until they are issued.
Regarding your last point, I agree. Manufacturing/Industrial type businesses look at them strictly as "bean counters". Whereas Financial Services type companies look at the Finance/Accounting departments with a different light.
Regarding the release, since they've waited this long, they should just wait until 11:59 pm Tuesday.
I'm looking for better net margins (7.5%). I've got $29 million and $.08 on a slightly higher number of shares outstanding.
I think management/BOD needs to hire someone to assist the CFO in getting the financials reported in a more timely manner. When they do get to $100 million market cap. it will be required.
Not sure how you define blowout. I'd term it a breakout quarter where we start to see the results of the growth of the backlog (Revenues & EPS) and continued growth in the backlog.
Correct! I don't expect them to put out weekly PR's just for the sake of it. But the only time we hear from them is when it's required, and even at that, it's at the very last possible moment.
From an operation standpoint they appear to be doing well in growing the company. They just need to get the message out. We can't rely on Twitter Flitters to push it up over the long run.
Maybe their holding off as long as possible so their friends can buy in before the run-up. Frustrating current shareholders into dumping at lower prices. Hope I'm not just putting "lipstick on a pig" here.
One year ago today they filed the 2013 10-K. If this company wants to be taken seriously by the investment community, they need to start acting like someone that cares about the investors.
Agreed! I read this book many a moon ago when I was in High School. I found it fascinating (and even more so now) how he communicated with his broker halfway around the globe. There are a lot of lessons of great value.
One of the biggest reasons it was used was for locking in a gain on a stock until it became Long Term, but this was changed in 1997.
It's called "shorting against the box". But did a bit of Investopedia and found out that the tax laws were changed in 1997, which nullified this "tax deferral" trade.
For a stock that#$%$ 52 week Highs, this is not normal. I think even the shorts know it's time to cover. It would be interesting to know of the remaining shares short, how many are just hedge positions vs. a long.
Sometime before the end of the month. Management needs to realize they need to be more communicative with shareholders and the investment community.
I suggest contacting the company and making the suggestion. Probably have to do it thru snail mail.
