i dont see that elon has a product.to sell. i am not sure why they have any sales at all. exactly what are people buying here.
i think we are looking at a reverse split later this year, with shares here dropping to the 20 cent level. this is over. as far as i am concerned management lied about subway and they showed incompetence over not knowing what was going on at the fda. they have a massive share overhang now, no chance of making a profit for years and a huge fda problem which may require millions in studies to fix. happy to be wrong, but i thought the sleight of hand with subway was scummy and very intentional.
wow, is this getting crushed. i am going to suspend purchasing any more to average down until i see some sign they are not a pump and dump. i am most concerned at this point. a lot of red flags are popping up.
my take on it was that start stop was dead for mxwl and the next generation of technology was still on the drawing boards and might or might not use uc. he did suggest design wins in automotive would be upcoming in the near term. but that might not have impact for years. there was nothing in the presentation to get excited about or new. just stay the course stuff and reassurance that mxwl was a leader in the technology. and that is why no one walked out and put in buy orders. the improved numbers for the q are baked in now, but he said there is poor visibility again, so any improvement has to discounted as temporary. low energy prices do not help. i can see the stock going back to the sub $6 range in a market sell off. brutal stuff. someday, mxwl will thrive IF they do not get leapfrogged.
of course, it is not up on the website yet. that is really a complicated process and takes days. it seems that they are really spending their time and money to go to investor conferences instead of going to industry trade shows. how could so much time pass without them announcing new adopters of the product? becoming more confusing with each announcement. i hope they figure this out sooner than later.
i sold my long held position at $56 on the thinking that they were struggling for growth and there were not many acquisitions left to them. at least not in the US. i do not believe the tourist business has much room to grow. they will still be profitable but i cannot figure out how they double in the next 4-5 years. and there are many other companies out there that seem to me to have running room. i am not a buyer although i think they will have a good quarter and fuel prices have to help them. without a solid growth rate i can see this as a 12 pe stock.
watson, i think that jsda needs to get flushed out. at some point it becomes a seasonal buy, but it might be best off if it just got taken down to 25 cents or so to eliminate the sellers. it is really too bad that cue bought in instead of resigning. you might have had one more shot at a creative entrepreneur coming in. however, it seems she is going to stay with the ship. they dont have a sellable product. it is the worst of all worlds. carrie apparently figured that out. and i have been saying you can buy it as a trade and sell at 50 cents. but you dont want it to drop to 20 cents and then have it rally to 40 cents if you are in it at 37 cents. that would suck.
unfortunately, jones hasnt gotten one thing right yet, other than saving money by getting rid of sales. since sales are a losing proposition. awful, awful management. but i bet they have cool kayaks. and cool photos in the lobby. remember when cue spent $1,000 to announce new photos in the lobby?
so far not able to get through resistance. it got smacked down hard in the afternoon with a nice rally. we will see how much momentum is left tomorrow, which will probably be its last chance to punch through without retracing. to me it looks weakening.
how much a ceo is paid is a poor way to pick a stock. i am not a fan of greedy management either, but there is much to be said for competence. i fear that reed's quarter is going to be poor. guidance may be good, but i bet the new plant is messing them up as would be typical here.
that is still a massive short position. 1.2 billion dollars laid short. this price through $40 is huge resistance. then $42 is big resistance as well. now the stock price is extended, probably overbought and running low on steam. it will be interesting to see what happens here. does it break through or pull back to $35? history tells us that a pullback is more likely. but this is the battleground. the shorts have been cool customers so far, but i think their days are numbered.
well, the commercial is one of the best i have seen in a long time. it will be interesting to see how they follow it up. based on the stock chart, i would be looking for a pullback to the $12-$13 range before i consider buying without evidence of increased profitability. but it is on my radar now. a lot of potential here i think.
go to lifeway corp's website and look at the commercial they did for the globes last night. so innovative. so smart. a beverage company succeeding in marketing to their key demo with a product in demand. jennifer clueless would not understand what this entails having apparently been out of class the first day of marketing class when they covered demographics. fiat. lol. very popular car among teens drinking fufuberry soda. lifeway is putting on a clinic. and it is not that hard to figure out. that red dye #12.8 is premium i hear. that is what they want on campus: real sugar and dyes. with a dog photo on it.
lifeway a very comparable company, but with great, great management. what a tremendous job they did on their first nation commercial on the golden globes.
look at the comparative chart of the two stocks. 400% divergence. both companies making a healthy drink. one company well run and creative. one company groping and fawning to the ceo. so so similar and so so different.
the commercial is outstanding. it will awards. bravo lifeway! now, i cant see the stock as fairly priced at this level. any comments on valuation? the marketing minds here are on point and the product is good and timely. but i dont see $18 as sensible.
why? is there an increased demand for childrens' soda with labels from the 1990s because of the seahawks win? is there a big nostalgia movement in seattle for mass produced, carbonated sugar water? tell coke not to close those plants, hurry. was there a big benefit last year?
this is what it looks like when actual things happen for a genomic company.
yes. i heard a rumor. my cat told me she thought that mygn was getting bought out. hence the massive 76 cent move. this is probably the biggest squeeze i have seen in mygn since yesterday afternoon. bodies are hurtling past my window as i speak. i think they may suspend trading if it trades above $39. i have to run, my secretary just passed out from the excitement.
i think maxwell is the industry leader in their markets. the problem is the markets have not developed in the way i thought - and they thought - that they would. the UC market is nascent still. and there is yet to be a killer app. my fear is that making UCs is simply not that hard. and if the market ever gets large enough you have the situation cree faces where patents mean nothing - especially in china/asia. cree also is a leader in the technology, but it has not meant much profit or benefit to shareholders. being innovative doesnt mean profitable to investors. cree is certainly suffering from the commodity effect. i do believe that mxwl will have a good year this year. i am just surprised the struggle has been so great.
i think having gone through CES with silence it appears to me, that this opinion is shared by the market. i think it is heading toward lights out this year.
glw and mxwl seems like a nice relationship. should pay off in 5 or six years if they take it seriously. however, this is something they probably needed to do 10 years ago. i think it is too little and too late. if they had been the powerhouse in UC they want everyone to think they are, i think tsla would have been involved deeply already and they would be involved in the new factory. i dont believe that is the case and i think panasonic (who could have purchased mxwl with petty cash) will be the superstar in automotive from the tsla relationship.
