Weeks doesn't need to listen to me or anyone else on this board. But what he should be doing is comparing his performance with his peers since he has been CEO. And his performance stinks.
Compare to a real innovator like 3M - who actually brings products to market quickly and earns growing profits and continues to deliver for shareholders. Corning says - boy it will be great to get GG on autos - and maybe we'll get there in 5 years......
Sure seems like a dearth of any news about new products, new applications for old products, etc. No PR. No wonder this stock just stagnates. The place seems so ripe for some activist involvement to shake up the management.
Exactly - and if a buyout does occur - it will probably be after a Biotech correction further depressing what NKTR is worth. The time to strike was now. I learned from an oil services company I lost 80% on - if you own a stock that doesn't perform in a sector that is roaring - things will get much worse when the sector undergoes a correction. Seems like many far less mature companies with zero products are flying out of sight - but NKTR with some actual revenues and several products in the pipeline plods along and can't seem to design a study with a good drug that can meet an endpoint. How disappointing.
what? and you are going to consistently hit 2% in a week ???????
I liked you last post about wishing well the person who bought your shares and saw a quick uptick - but this rationalization is nuts!
The announcement of raising the dividend is not news to the market - since that stated strategy of this company is to pay free cash out as dividends (mostly). Anyone can see the shipping rates increasing and Herb has already given guidelines as to what the dividend will likely be for various realized rates.
Management would know that they are planning a "gangbuster quarter for earnings" - so then why would they be selling so much stock?
I HAVE a life that doesn't involve ceaseless pumping and predicting stock prices. Bottom line - this management has failed to deliver shareholder value for a long time. And now, with all divisions supposedly humming, Flaws can't sell his shares fast enough. Soon the market will correct and it will be too late for any shareholder friendly actions on the part of this LAME management.
Do you ever get sick and tired of making predictions of GLW stock price that are WRONG? Yeah I want the stock higher - but making these statements just makes you look dumb.
Klaus didn't post that. It's Kennedy who posts under Aliases that appear to be Klaus. To see REAL Klaus posts, it has to be from his exact name. KKlausbeckerman - - If it has two n's on the end - it's kennedy.
yes you have seen him post....he is poster for every deviate spelling of kklausbeckerman - look closely
