  • a great product. lost power for 3 days here after torrential storm. generator ran flawlessly. full power, no interruptions.

    PPS way outperforming the DJI. am running a 20.44% capital gain. always look forward to ER here due to latest acquisitions.

    Warren Buffet always advises investors to buy into what they own and like. Generac fits the bill there.

    Hurricane season nearly upon us. Projections are for an active season. while no one wishes for another's misfortune, good to buy into that condition. will pop the share price.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • i like it. looks like a good acquisition with Dejana truck and a good fit for PLOW. agree with Janik that this product will help PLOW rely less on weather to boost sales.

    PPS has recovered nicely from last Q down earnings and beat Wall St projections. just went ex-div and PPS recovered.

    volume over double the norm today at 228k shares traded and PPS up 2.19%. lots of buying.

    enthusiasm is tempered by after hours trading today tho. let's hope it's some profit taking. will see on Monday.

    personally, i continue to hold Toro as well and it is one of my better holdings in that capital appreciation @ 22.75% plus yield. Deere continues to do well also. looks like that whole sector is recovering quite nicely. helps offset my horrible losses from the financial sector.

    Sentiment: Buy

    business model?

    ask Junior Bridgeman and #$%$ Fox about that. between them they have divested 353 locations in the last 2 months. despite a nice Q, Mr Market is down on WEN outlook.

    WEN refusal to consider a breakfast menu has cost them market share to MCD. Their business model is nothing but the same old, same old.

    DIS is destroying ESPN by trying to change it over to their entertainment business model. had to switch to FOX Sports after listening to a consortium of 5 women gabbing about the NBA. unreal. was like listening to the Today Show. unbelievable.

    it isn't ESPN dragging down DIS, it's DIS dragging ESPN down.

    not a good strategy kosmic. you want to buy low and sell high. you realize nothing with a buy and hold strategy. you may as well be in bonds. it is paramount that you try to turn your money. little chance of that here.

    huh? why not just use that bag attached to your chair?

  • Janik cited snowfall as a reason for poor earnings and sales. baloney.

    although North America experienced a milder winter in terms of temperature, avg snowfall was up in most regions. following Toro (TTC), their pickup truck plow sales increased last Q. the take on that is that PLOW again lost market share to the BOSS snowplow line.

    let's be honest here....

    Good Revenues

    an interesting correlation... it is noticeable that the more TNK drops, the more upbeat your posts become. pls share the manufacturers name who produces your meds. you need to share that too.

    since i closed my TNK position, (and you berated me for that) i've avoided a 51.2% capital loss. the yield doesn't begin to cover that.

    i suggested then, and i repeat, you simply MUST diversify. never a good idea to have all your eggs in one basket.

    Sentiment: Sell

  • while i always want more, am quite satisfied with MCS outperforming the markets. good, safe investment with good opportunities and sound management group.

    a keeper.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • i'm not only a customer, i'm an owner. AMTD represents 1.4% of my stock portfolio. i added this position about a year ago along with 5 others. AMTD is by far the poorest performer as the other 4 have all gone up. the yield is pedestrian and does not begin to cover the 8.9% capital loss i've incurred. AMTD is vastly underperforming the DJI and their sector as well.

    i sent them an email today through their site relating my dissatisfaction with their CEO Fred T. and suggested the BOD replace him. i also asked them to forward that message to the CEO and Marketing VP.

    The Marketing group has made a joke of AMTD. their television commercials are insipid and their caricature of the "Ask Ted" guy on their site is simply stupid. while that extremely poor marketing campaign has continued, market share has dropped to both Scott and E-Trade and earnings reflect that.

    if you're in agreement, and are a customer of AMTD, send them a message through their web site. maybe someone there forwards it.

    Invesing in Citi

    no argument there, C is horrible but then again, the financial sector is the worst performing sector on the DJI. C and GS are two of the worst in that sector and BAC is right there with them. i liquidated both C and GS holdings today and bought USB with the proceeds. USB yield is far better and share price has held up better. easy decision.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    good question deez. they could avoid all the costs associated with listing. maybe it forces them to become more accountable. we all know Michael Koss has huge problems with that.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
