    Thinking about taking a position...

    by beefstu57 23 hours ago

    are you kidding? surely you must know that while a company may be seasonal, PPS is not. you don't compare current quarter with preceeding quarter but rather with same quarter, prior year.
    also, Heehehe's post is invalid. yes, PPS drops when ex-dividend is declared but that is TOTALLY relevant. share price goes down but dividend is locked. the values equate. it is six of one and a half dozen or another (no pun intended).
    I stand by SIX as a good investment but one that needs monitoring. earnings up only as a result of increasing prices, not increase in customers and attendance. however, we should get that with continued cheaper prices at the pump, increased consumer spending and confidence, lower unemployment and everything else that goes along with an improving economy. SIX will lag and now is the time to blossum. IMHO

    Sentiment: Buy

    really? and what is your spin? i thought the verbiage was in line with the numbers and, it ain't too promising. the yield will keep me patient but am not liking the capital prospects. this is on my bubble list.

    Sentiment: Hold

    If you are not in this thing for the dividend ?

    the play would be in a BDC such as MAIN Capital or an outright industrial such as PLOW. PLOW more than meets the need for capital gains and yield plus great expectations. I will continue to hold SPH for good yield and diversification model.

    Sentiment: Hold

    Goodbye HQ

    colorado_dude got it right - on both counts.

    also, the new HQ to simply be a nicer palace for royalty. fat and happy...

    am going to rethink this position. i have seen this new HQ hogwash with ATU and SPX/United Dominion. another way to reward themselves at shareholders expense.

    true that but am concerned about revenue growth coming only thru higher prices than increased volume and attendance. you can only play that game for so long. we will shortly see if SIX can reverse the lack of ticket sales. When, or if, that happens, then we will see some capital gains via PPS. as stated previously, yield will help keep me patient for another quarter or 2.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • Wow!! It can't get much worse than that other than closing the doors. Shutting down Mexico, suspending all dividends, revenue down over 37%, net loss over $2M.

    Mike Koss suspends all R&D on Striva Wi-Fi. Also, "we wrote off the capitalized software costs as well as the related tooling and inventory." Desperate measures for desperate times. Too bad he can't be replaced. Oh, that's right, his family has a controlling interest. What a joke.

    What a horror story but could see it coming a year ago. Had I held my position, with PPS at $2.63, I'd have been down 47%. It is going to be much worse much quicker.

    This will become a penny stock in short order trading only on OTC-other pink sheets. You have even a dime left in KOSS, sell sell sell.

    My hope is that employees and shareholders come out of this ok and that only the Koss family suffers. They deserve it.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    why buy other then SDRL

    nadsmis nadsmis Aug 20, 2014 10:44 PM Flag

    good for you! seriously. i hear the ones saying to buy on the dips. ugh. some dips never come until after a huge runup. waiting for a decline is like trying to time the market short term. not advisable.

    i jumped in with everything i had in January 2009 and have continued to pump in capital when possible and approriate. i buy and sell and reinvest. i still consider this a bull market and am enjoying great yield and even better capital gains. gotta pay the IRS every April but my continued gains and yield pay them for me.

    SDRL is a modest portion of my stock portfolio at 2.70% and, quite frankly, i consider it to be speculative and have doubts. still in all, i will ride the dividend, track closely and leave the rest to the market.

    Sentiment: Hold

    altho it is never too late, it is often too early. this is my second time back in. i like the company and the yield keeps me patient.

    SIX should produce. IMO

    Global Warming

    by mile_high_stock Aug 15, 2014 2:33 PM
    nadsmis nadsmis Aug 15, 2014 6:17 PM Flag

    interesting. the midwest, actually the whole snow belt has seen 9 consecutive months of colder than average temps. the northwest and northeast have seen much higher temps as have other global areas like Siberia however, those geographical areas experiencing global warming aren't areas PLOW sells to. what's really important is northern US and Canada so, that works for us.

    I am very heavy into PLOW at 22.6% my stock portfolio. that vastly exceeds my ceiling but rules are made to be broken and i'm glad i did. capital gains and yield have been outstanding. nonetheless, i did sell off 25% my PLOW holdings earlier this week. rang the cash register and reinvested into UHT, CHL, and SIX. i am thinking that PLOW will have a tough time beating YOY earnings after the stellar 2013 Q4 and 2014 Q1 and Q2.

    am going to hold now....

    What happened today?

    by airlease2000 Aug 15, 2014 4:05 PM
    nadsmis nadsmis Aug 15, 2014 5:52 PM Flag

    i've the same question. all i know is that there was a lot of selling but don't know who or why. the Ruskies shoot down one of our AYR planes?
    in a bad day in the markets, i was actually doing quite well until AYR brought me down.
    a selloff like today felt like a SO announcement.
    let us know if you can find anything.
    hopefully we bounce back quick and was just fallout from the Ukraine shelling a Ruskie column.

  • i like the trend lately. volume strong, consistent overall up trend to PPS. outperforming DJI.

    REITs are a little spooky but yield is great. with good capital returns, that yield is even better.

    hope to see some posts here....

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • expectations are for increased revenue and earnings due to increase in consumer spending and increased disposable income. i think SIX will do better with cheaper gasoline pump prices and favorable weather. tho the P/E is high, the yield is good.

    this sure is a quiet board. hope to see more posts....

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    ha ha. just read your post. Cramer pumped ALU too. since that time, ALU down 11.72%. I track it because I sold it a week after he shamelessly pumped it.

    gonna ride CHL for a bit tho. not in very big but still nearly 2% my stock portfolio.

    I appreciate your posts and hope to see more.

    Mo Nip U Late

    nadsmis nadsmis Aug 14, 2014 2:46 PM Flag

    not me. i like what i read and like what i see. it is invariably true that once a pop has landed, based on a good report (revenues up tho earnings down), the trend continues (all market variables being equal). what with the good yield and market share opportunities, i just bought in.

    you sell or are you simply short? if short, you just got clobbered on top of your dividend coverage.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    closing UBFO position

    by nadsmis Jun 25, 2014 10:48 AM
    nadsmis nadsmis Aug 14, 2014 1:08 PM Flag

    osutton, i just checked. this is your one and only post. your member history dates back to the date of your post of July 22, 2014.

    you aren't simply a pumper, you look to be a company shill trying to protect your investment. i am sure you realize with this tiny float that if even 1 buyer sold 1000 shares in a day, the bottom would drop out.

    closing UBFO position

    by nadsmis Jun 25, 2014 10:48 AM
    nadsmis nadsmis Aug 14, 2014 1:05 PM Flag

    first, you need to know the proper use of "your" and "you're". not knowing basic English goes to your lack of credibility.

    secondly, it is all about What have you done for me lately. reference the chart.

    also, the dividend distribution is literally 0. There are no regular dividends but ony distributions.

    ever try to sell UBFO? a nasty surprise as the float is so small the share price drops from underneath you as you sell. not enough buyers.

    this position is what is referred to as a POS. i would never endorse it and my recommendation is to avoid. not just my opinion but also that of McGraw Hill Financial based on an S&P Investability Quotient Percentile of only 18%. that is horribly low.

    while it is usually a good sign to see insiders buying and holding, institutional investment is only 7%. wow. that is scarey as the risk is high. could drop like a rock in an up market.

    no, not me.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
