You may be right, but the market, and that's all that counts, seems to be pricing in the benefits sooner rather than later, a lot faster than I anticipated but not complaining Last July, one poster said we would have 20% in a yr. I thought that was conservative but we have had it already, less than 5 months. You will not get a big correction and i'll be surprised if we see the 6s again and certainly not below 5.60 as I've posted before and been right.. That is my drop dead low prediction. But I'm on record as predicting the pps will meander up going into earnings announcement and was right last quarter. We shall see but at least your not whining daily about every hiccup in pps
Sorry, my mistake. Assumed that "the" auction applied to the H spectrum. My error,and forget what I said as it all applied to the H. when I'm wrong or make an erroneous assumption, I freely admit it. Wonder what auction the initiater was referring to???
You've said that idiiot multiple times. Your obviously too dumb to realize that you could simply not click on a post. Yet you post incessantly on pps action, who you have on ignore, what you do investment wise and lament, hand wring and whine when the pps hiccups. what an insecure idiiot to have to post all this obvious trivia. In a few days I'm sure you will start whinning about your little options as the date becomes near whining about whether sprint will be over 8 or not. If it wasn'at impracticable to keep such a goodstock down, I would sincerely hope the pps stays below 8 till expiration. Oh well, you can make your little cents but just don't keep boring us with your trivia, your little investments, the pps action and who you have on ignore, just don't click on their posts stupid.
BOTTOM LINE IS WHO CARES. You keep posting inanities because of your insecurity and addiction and when you try to predict, you are always wrong. I've told you what to expect and so far I and others have been totally correct on what is and will happen. get a life and stop imposing your insecurities and addiction on us
You made some bad decisions. Should not have sold S as it will be way up when the merger benefits kick in. I also bought some clwr at the high, but believing in clwr spectrum and not the idiotic nay sayers, I also bought a lot more on the way down, averaging down, and made a huge profit on the merger and now making a huge profit here. Since I consider both investments part of the same investment strategy, my clwr/sprint investment is and will make me a lot of money assuming Son is able to execute and so far he is. Impressed by the marketing being done now and think we will have, at most, 2 and probably only one bad earnings report.
Your more right than most. But, both Sprint and tmobile are non players in this auction. when Sprint's wireless network is up, there are devices out for clwer spectrum and with the limited plans, that's when sprint will shine. But you are right, anything that delays the competition while Sprint completes its plan is a plus Its so sad most don't realize the simple fact that it will take a while for sprint to cash in on the merger benefits.
Wrong.T mobile and Sprint are on record as not bidding. The only big bidder is Dish which set the minimum bid in return for spectrum usage concessions. There are 34 smaller no count bidders. That may be why the delay. The auction is being underwhelmed. So its a no count for Sprint. So much misinformation and mis speculation here while the weak and uninitiated wring their hands and lament. Guys everything is going as expected, just wait it out..
Not sure what you mean by being abused by a split. But those dates and how the financial restructuring will be handled is important.
Thanks, but bottom line we need to wait for some unknown date when the second shoe will drop. For the record and distribution dates of the split shares and to determine how the company will raise additional capital. I hope that the company allows existing shareholders to participate either by giving us access to convertible bonds, first choice of additional shares or warrants. we shall see but I hope it happens sooner rather than later. One, to get my shares and two to expand the company production so we can use up the backlog faster, increasing revenue and earnings and consequently the pps. With the amount of prep time, you would have tought this would have already been decided.
Again thanks for your assistance in getting the info, just wish the company was more transparent and efficient with its news. But I did sign up for the emails and its nice that at least Ir is not in English. Our Arcam is growing up
I hope so. Thanks for the heads up on the information issue, have signed up and looking forward to more current English. Glad that IR site is now in English, Arcam is growing up. Last lament, I find it interesting that no where on the web site was there mention of the split, at least I did not find it.
On another topic, since you are in Europe, do you have access to info on the german trade show and Groupe specifically. I'm trying to determine whether Groupe has any printer sales backlog and whether it sold a printer at the trade show. Supposedly there was some article on that in the French press but cannot find any supportive documentation and I don't trust the media at all given its latest behaviors. So would appreciate any info on Groupe and its 3d printer sales history. Thanks in advance, your info is very useful, but cannot fathom why the company would not have provided record and distribution dates at the same time as the authorization. That is basic.
will if you read, you will have seen that I raised exactly that question, lamented that neither the record date nor issue date were set, was challenged by the idiot Tilodome and had a whole thread on this issue lamenting that the dates were not specified.
Had you read, you would have known that those dates have not been set rather than starting this thread. Right??
Is it documented and not just press speculation. I've become very skeptical of unsupported statements in the press as journalistic ethics are becoming nil. Guess I should navigate over to ihub and check it out and insure that information sources are intact as obviously my sources are weak if there is some material news. But gary, for a company that is trying to pretend its a 3d printing company, I am shocked that it did not issue a PR or other communication. Aren't you??? Also if there is any backlog or other sales, can't believe neither you nor the company have mentioned it. Simply repeating old sales news does not cut it as you should know.
WHO CARES IDIOT. And wow, sprint will either trade up or down. What will surprise me is you actually have the money to buy sprint shares at 7.80 as you promised in your post. To me, a company as cheap as sprint if you don't buy at least 500 shares and more basically one thousand shares, your are a joke especially with all the whinning, hand wringing and lamenting you put upon us.
BOTTOM LINE, WHO CARES LITTLE MAN
Sorry, but not totally accurate. Can't speak for anyone else, but I knew the split would be approved. would have not been announced and issue raised otherwise. But the key questions that I, at least have, were when is the record and receipt dates and what is arcam going to do with its potential raising of capital either through shares or some kind of debt which I think was also part of this meeting. These are the important issues, the authorization of the split is essentially moot as was a foregone conclusion. But thanks for trying and suggesting the email route. Will look into it.
as an aside, its amazing to me how many so called investors don't have a clue whats happening. Oh well
Still waiting for you to document the posts I supposedly misconstrued or the 2 or 3 companies that you allege contradict my split point. LOL What a fool as documented by every post.
In this last post,your even more stupid and show your total lack of understanding and you call me a moron. Talk about the kettle calling the pot black.
No smart investor, something you can only hope to be, just wakes up and has 4 times more shares. Any reasonable person, who is not a moron, takes into consideration the date they will receive split shares and determines in advance what they plan to do with (1) those shares and (2) tries to anticipate what effect the split shares and increased float will have on trading action. Your last sentence makes no sense at all
Little man, you contradicted my post and made a bunch of inane stupid and nonsensical statements and have not been able to document one despite your little allegations. Each of your posts is demonstrating your stupidity more and more and this last one makes no sense at all. You want to be a totally passive investor and just wake up to more shares. That's probably why you have been a passive believer of Gary's tout or your own perception of Groupe despite all of its question marks and weaknesses. But then you are the moron who says groupe sales since May don't matter and have no concept of what groupe is other than simply hoping that gary is right and all of a sudden it will have a lot of printer sales. You are unbelievable, yet you keep posting showing your utter stupidity for all to see except the equally clueless poster above.. .
Oh come on. You cricitize me??? Read the posts of tilodome in this thread and others. He contradicted me with his inanities, lies, misstatements and idiocy. You expect me to just take it without comment. Attack him not me. the ridiculousness of your post does not warrant further comment. If you are displeased, simply don't click on my posts. enough said to this idiocy. Attack the idiiot, not me
If you mean Gary, in the past I would have said probably as he posted a good game suggesting he has sources. Now, I'm not so sure. First, would have expected him to already have posted the info. Second, in his other posts, he is amazingly not informed on a lot of basic issues. For example, unless it was by design, he went off half cocked on the institution story. Second, in his two recent touts, Groupe and Media Bistro I'm shocked at the lack of info and misrepresentations in his articles. He is not aware of Groupe's current print sales or backlog, he was not aware of the employee count, he did not know what the institutions intent was, implying that it intended an immediate sale whereas that was not the case and in Media and Groupes case he implied they were essentially 3d printer companies whereas that is not the case at all. In the case of Groupe its a wanna be, but has few to no current sales or backlog.
Bottom line, he has demonstrated a lack of information or insight, either actually or by design, in his articles, supporting a onesided thesis which seems to correspond with his prior investment actions. I don't think he has any real information based on his actions or lack thereof. Analyze the content, most is taken directly from other public sources such as that Francoise article on groupe, and he gets that wrong or omits key facts. In response to one of my posts, he stated that groupe sold a printer at the recent show trying to rebut my no sales conclusion but cited no authority for that statement and today I have not seen any documentation for such a sale. You would think a company that touts its 3d business would have released info, if true.
Short answer, few chances. And despite tilodome's opinion, I am surprised and disappointed that the split approval today did not have a record and receipt date which is the practice here I had no doubt the split would be approved, what I was awaiting is the record and receipt dates.
4 splits wow. I've been involved in over 30 going back to the rah rah internet days. My last two were oii and ddd. When the splits were authorized we knew at the same time the record date, little man. Now name your 2 or maybe 3 that did not so announce. You love to make bold accusations and statements, but lie and cannot back them up with documentation. Real easy to conserve space that way. When I make a statement, i provide documentation, takes up more space doesn't it.
And in every split there is a wait from the authorization date to the receipt date. What is not usual is the wait for the record date. And this delay prevents immediate selling while maintaining share count, little guys buying the shares because they are cheaper or institutions deciding to buy shares because of the higher float or volume. Wrong again, little man. If you can show me any of those 4 splits where you didn't wait for shares, i'll be amazed. So easy to just lie or misstate.
Talk about annoying. At least when I state something I can back it up. You never are able to support your bald usually wrong or foolish assertions, yet you have the nerve to challenge me when I'm right and your wrong and challenge me for posting when it was you who posted wrong info in the first place. LOL Such obvious stupidity, shown in every post. .
Simply put, I've named two examples of my points, now name yours. Bet you cannot name any where you did not have to wait for shares. LOL. Gotch ya again.
And to prevent you from wiggling and misstating as you tend to do when caught, My statement was and is, its unusual to not have a record date specified when the split is AUTHORIZED which is what I said. Not when the split is announced, the authorization date. Like here with Arcam,, the split was ANNOUNCED several weeks ago. The record date cannot be set till split is authorized. But when American cos AUTHORIZE the split, the record date accompanies it. Now meet the challenge little man, bet you can't as usual
AGAIN SO WRONG, LITTLE MAN. this is becoming so redundant and showing your limitation so easily. One, I know you have very little market experience which is obvious from your error prone posting. I've been involved in a lot of splits and generally, if not always, the record date is announced with the split approval or on the same date. Might there be one exception, perhaps, but you have not documented that. I can easily document the contrary, all the splits I've been involved in where both the split and record date are announced at the same time. So easy to say wrong, especially when you are wrong and supply no supportive data. Error one.
There is a matter of waiting. Many investors might take the spit and additional shares to take some profits while still maintaining a large share count. I realize a novice does not realize or understand this concept as your fallacious posting shows, but some knowledgeable investors might use this technique. I am considering it.
Also, existing shareholders are awaiting the additional shares to derive some of the potential benefits from the split. Little guys might be more inclined to buy with the cheaper price and institutions might become more interested because of the higher daily volume and float. These benefits must await the distribution. Error 2.
So little man, the distribution date does matter to many for investment purposes.0 for 2 in your accuracy and insight again. There is a waiting to get shares, and the distribution date does matter and the sooner the better. Given the lack of knowledge, insight, errors and just dumb thinking, I cannot believe that you are a successful investor but then even a broken clock can be right twice per day. It would be nice if you could get one post right. and be half as good as a broken clock.
