Quite awhile back jdsu management said they had all the acquisitions made and they were streamlining, to split the company and get their synergies working. Now one of the things the new management was saying was that the split was going to allow them to act more quickly on new acquisitions! Before they had all their pieces gathered, now they don't. 2 points - if they are spending so much for R&D, why doesn't their product research make more money? They have been criticised for this in the past. Big R&D budget, little to show for it. Now for acquisitions... they pay a lot of money for companies but it hasn't added to the bottom line. This company is not growing organically. They are flat with their earnings for half a decade.
Something stinks with this company. They cannot envision where the company needs to be in 3 months let alone a year. Floundering upper management, ineffective R&D. What a picture.
But 35 million shares traded is amazing.
Wow that is a website I used to love!!
---- what stock trades 35.8 million and only goes up .03 (+0.27% )
I don't know any except this POS.
But I will say they have handled themselves very stupidly over the last few months.
It does tell me that they aren't business savvy.
aren't they in a quiet period before earnings?
You correct on many points.
But have you considered that maybe this management has taken it as far as it can go??
Lots of companies have not been able to make the transition from inventor to big business.
Unbelievable. Honestly unf%^&ing believable.
I wish. I am in at 27ish.
Company seems to be doing all things great. Good management. Good visibility.
Just wish the stock reflected all the positives and was higher.
A few months ago 3d participated in a trade show. They had two people answering questions and they replied that 3d was far along into integration of the new companies. But I have looked for this Q&A and can not find it.
Does anyone else remember this??
I am a democrat. But these two are scary. Can you imagine Bill Clinton in the White House again??? He is uncontrollable and laughable anymore.
Bernie Sanders would be much better IMO.
But at least you are not Republican.
so SSYS doesn't leapfrog over ddd and take over all the business.
Avi seems like he is all over the place with no focus.
My problem is that I expect companies to do things that make sense to me. That are straight forward and "clean." That is my problem.
Thanks for your thoughts.
such an uneven stock split. If one part of the company is $800M/year and the other $1B than I would think the split would not be what they are offering, but a more even number of shares.
Of course, with jdsu's IR, they never replied. They most likely didn't know. Which would be typical from this company.
