osprey is to be ignored. check his other posts...
he is attempting to manipulate a small cap stock by posting false rumors. that is illegal. were i holding KOSS, i would report that post to the SEC. no question.
yes, TNK definitely out of favor. Mr Market pounding them hard. PPS down 13% since the 6.65 close on 4-28. That's enough of an indicator for me. i sold off 80% of my holdings and will keep the remainder thru ER and then, either way, i liquidate this position. enough is enough.
you blasted me March 1st for posting negative commentary on WY and called me names. i call it karma now.
i also recommended buying HD late Feb and selling WY (which i did), and was pounced on. now do you get it? run a comparison chart if need be.
you need to be civil and perhaps karma may help you.
thx ignoreworld. interesting....
I am having a new lake home built now and made sure that NOTHING came from Lumber Liquidators. nothing.
i just finished listening to the CC. had a couple others earlier that drew my attention. i closed out my last FLY position at 14.63$ and, after listening with an impartial ear, will not buy back in. i felt Barrington was less than forthright and i didn't see him sign up for an optimistic forward guidance. as in the past, i felt he was not to be trusted (as we all found out with that last SO).
should i return to this sector, it'll be with AYR who is up 17% since my sell there last December.
were i still holding FLY, i'd have sold right after the CC.
markets robust today and FLY was one of the few not floating on the higher tide. opportunity costs have to be considered.
when earnings reports are poor, the CEO and CFO pump and put on their sales hats. often (unfortunately) when an ER is stellar, the CEO hedges or under promises. when an ER is poor (as was MIFI's), and the CEO pumps, individual investors gotta reduce their exposure or simply exit and run. the PPS will drop big on the day of a poor ER and followup trading days will continue to take PPS down. the best you can hope for is that share prices level off but even then, you only stay if there are dividends that are well protected and have a good yield. certainly not the case with MIFI. personally, i exited completely ahead of the ER at 6.31$ am avoided a 20% haircut.
you seem a decent sort and i just thought to share my opinion and experience (for what it's worth).
sorry for Long's here but i still have a Strong Sell sentiment with MIFI. MIFI will remain on my Watch List but am going to remain on the sidelines for now.
to all, i would take my beating, cut my losses, and move on.
regardless, good fortune to all of you....
Sentiment: Strong Sell
get in ahead of earnings reports for Toro (TTC) and Home Depot (HD). both should beat expecations easily and PPS' should pop. Toro bought company that produces the Boss line of pickup snowplows and their earnings will contribute nicely. i bought more TTC today but HD up too much and i am hoping for a quick dip early next wk. if not, i will buy some options there.
as you agree with mr.phil, i agree with you and adjusted my stock portfolio accordingly but did position myself for 2 short term plays with an industrial and a retailer ahead of their earnings next wk.
gl to you.
i too sold off AAPL couple weeks ago at 127.25. i expect AAPL to be rather flat, or come down a max. of 5%. i think it's topped off and will have a tough time repeating last few quarters. buyback will help PPS but not enough.
i reduced my exposure to BDC's too. closed BKCC and FSC positions and reduced ARCC and MAIN. went to an industrial with TTC ahead of earnings release and am holding cash for a HD buy. HD needs to drop quick for me as i want to get there ahead of their earnings too.
altho i think BDC's will get beat down when Fed raises rates, they will actually become more profitable by raising their interest rates they charge right along with the Fed. that will become an opportunity for me to reinvest in BDC's.
Live long and Prosper....
yah. or a robust buyback would be welcomed by Mr Market too.
i think we need ole kosmic to kick this equity in the poop shooter. get it off the snide here.
TNK a full 15.05% my stock portfolio. that's alot of beans in one can for me.
you make sense and i understand. ok to be out of dry powder with market so high. maybe take a wee bit off the table and wait for a dip in the markets? you know it's coming.
gonna keep $26k and start buying options. mad money in a sense.
OLED as in Univ Display Corp?
just found 500 shares in my Roth. oh well. altho it's a self directed Roth, i don't play too much there.
i see i took a "thumbs down" on my post this morning. i know no one likes to hear anything contrary to what reinforces their opinion but, sorry. i spoke nothing but the truth. sometimes, the truth hurts. i did try to be pleasant and matter-of-fact tho.
hey, i still love all of you... after all, what's not to like about fellow investors willing to invest in American companies?
as my belated friend Mr. Spock used to say, "Live long and prosper".
I made a mistake and double downed on PLOW holdings post earnings mistakenly thinking PPS would rebound on solid financials. I was correct on the good financials and beat to earnings but wrong on the resultant to shareprice.
Janik has no clue about PR and conducted an uninspiring ER which is clearly evidenced by selloff in an up market. That poor monologue delivery put off investors and the hiatus began. When you have a stellar ER and follow that up with a beat to earnings projections on next Q, only to see PPS drop hard, something is very wrong.
The under-promise-over-deliver and hedge theories are not appropriate for a publicly held company whose prime directive should be to grow shareholder wealth. Janik and the BOD have obviously not made the transition from being a privately held company. In that regard they are failing. That is undeniable.
While the yield is good, it does not begin to cover capital losses. A terrible performance. DJI up .61% and PLOW down 1.75%??? Unbelievable.
Am hoping for any type of bounce so I can exit this stock permanently. Looks like a lot of investors beat me to it. That is undeniable. Truly, PLOW is a POS.
you've an obvious personality disorder.
oh, since you asked, undergrad Industrial Management (3.25 GPA), MBA (3.97 GPA). good enough?
crashnburn a good handle for you but sierrahater would be more appropriate. jeez.
despite yourself, i hope you prosper...
they are often referred to as Goldman Sucks. for a good reason. they can't even run their own business without begging for TARP. GS no better than Raymond James (a totally self serving analyst co.) Zack's seems to be the only reputable one out there except for perhaps The Street.
