well Stan, it is rather odd to direct someone to buy something else vs. what you hold. the opposite is what you'd want to do. don't let your frustrations get the best of you.
a Thumbs down? lol. was Mr. Hoffman reading Yahoo finance boards or just an ignorant shareholder not wanting to hear anything contrary to their opinion?
next time don't just click a thumb. try getting the stones to add to commentary and state your position.
PLOW now down a whopping 13% since Janik blew the conference call when announcing record earnings on Mar. 11. unbelievable. the market hates this company. the dividend can't even stop the shareprice from a steady decline.
Janik must be ousted before the shareholders can be rewarded.
while i use TD i do not DRIP. i don't fully understand anyone who does unless the DRIP is relatively insignificant. then - ok.
however, i simply accumulate the cash (actually money market, lol) and then choose where and when to invest. often the accumulation is with an entirely different equity.
i suppose the DRIP makes sense if you don't do much trading?
your reference to Adam being a sociopath was interesting. by-the-by, studies have shown CEO's having the greatest percentage of sociopaths than any other.
your 2 cents? that all you have left? you shoulda sold on the run up. greed is a big downfall for us all.
p.s. - no one who has the stones to invest vs. blow their money "deserve to lose their money".
don't be so harsh just because you failed to pull the trigger in a timely fashion. take your frustration out on a dirty magazine.
TTC CEO is able to give a stellar earnings quarter report and he says, "we are mindful of the fact that Mother Nature delivered two consecutive favorable summer growing seasons in 2013 and 2014 and may not do so again this year." Are you #$%$ kidding me?
CEO and BOD job #1 is to grow shareholder wealth. After all, shareholders own a public company. Where does Hoffman get off making a stupid statement like that? First of all, the winter was average if you consider all of the U.S. and Canada - not just the east coast and Boston. Secondly, a CEO's job is to say he, and his management staff, are going to be committed to continue to beat expectations - just as TTC has done for 4 quarters in a row. That's his job. We don't want someone at the helm saying, or even hinting, that he doesn't think that can happen again. If that's the case, TTC needs new leadership.
Apparently Mr. Market felt the same way and a selloff took place on a day of announcing a great quarter. That is it for me too. I will sell my stake and invest in another public company whose CEO exudes confidence and illustrates the enthusiasm to go out and continue to perform as good, or better, than before.
If Hoffman was hedging (under promise, over deliver nonsense), then he is untrustworthy and not to be believed. He isn't being forthright with shareholders. If Hoffman IS being honest, then you can expect worse performance. Either way - you don't want to hold TTC stock.
As long as Hoffman is CEO, this stock is going to underperform My Long Term Sentiment = Sell.
you used a broker to buy this?? you gotta be kidding. i can lose money all by myself without paying someone to do it for me. in today's computerized markets, brokers are superfluous. you can't determine your own stock equity investments, or trades, you shouldn't be involved in the markets. go with mutual funds or ETF's.
yeah, i know. in that 2 years, earnings have been stellar with no capital gains to show for it. DJI at another all time high and PLOW just slogs on.
i only own 460 shares of PLOW and all are in a self directed IRA. will just let them sit until i either become totally disenfranchised or see PPS reach 25.
since i sold off PLOW i put down on TTC Toro. they own the BOSS snowplow line and they are taking market share from PLOW. the only real incentive for PLOW is their Henderson purchase and good yield. since i bought into TTC they are up 4.83% and PLOW is down 2.77% over the same time frame. tomorrow (the 21st) TTC releases earnings and i expect that delta to widen.
good luck here....
"your a genius"
i think you mean "you're". there's a difference. had you finished high school, you'd know that.
bombs away for MIFI today. i sold at 5.20 and made a few hundred.
you buy at 6.25?
Sentiment: Strong Sell
