    Maybe the shorts will start to cover. Not a ton of upside (downside) for them after this news.

    Short interest reduced or nice add/initiation for a fund. At some point holders aren't going to sell here. I would think the funds the bought in high 3s/low 4s and in for trade are now ghost. Needs to go to mid 5s in next two weeks. It is time.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    So what is game plan now?

    It is not on a lot of volume but this stock is pathetic - can't believe the board/management drum up some cash and announce a buyback if the values thrown about are legitimate. Just drifting 5% down each day. Not even attracting funds at these levels and I guess I don't blame them. We know that no one is up on paper - everyone invested in MX is a loser. This company should not be public. They don't know how to operate / communicate as one.

    360K block just printed - is it a cover or someone adding? I guess that is good either way at this point.

    What's Bottom for this POS ?

    AFTER earnings release and stock drop to $5.25-$5.50 range another 1 million shares have been shorted. Between 11/1 and 11/30. This is despite company in process of exploring strategic alternatives and two activists involved? Uh....sounds like insider information telling certain hedgies that no deal in works. SEC would be sniffing if they had manpower but maybe this is so egregious that it warrants looking into. This fact set makes NO sense for anyone to short at $5-$5.25 unless you KNOW something. If you think inside leaking doesn't occur think again. It is probably worse at small micro caps companies like MX.

    Response to a 14% down day is hey look we won supplier of the year by a vendor? And this is why the stock price is where they are. How about all board and management buy stock here or if they can't because of current restrictions communicate that they have agreed to each buy X shares 72 hours after next quarter earnings announcement regardless of price. Whatever, if MX were a wide receiver in the NFL they would lead the league in drops by a considerable margin.

    100% to get back to bid price

    Barclays was hired way back prior to Pleasant Lake's offer so unfortunately that is NOT a new development. Robert just rehashing what was already public. I find it peculiar that neither party has since commented on the $10 offer. Perhaps an unofficial "no comment" period was agreed to. In any event nice to have the strong volume yesterday without further erosion of the stock price but again really just crickets. Whether short covering or initiation of new position is positive.

    Short interest as of Nov 12 per Yahoo is 16% so it has increased. My guess is that it was leaked that MX either did not get a price they liked or that they have decided to operate their way out of this mess. These little small deals are so leaky. Only hope we have is that there is a GMCR style buyout. It is absolutely ridiculous now when you think about it. The $10 offer 3 months ago is 100% premium. We obviously haven't heard squat about that - my guess is that everyone has taken rest of year, management & board, activists, every1. Tax-loss selling could push this into low 4s.

    MX Buyout @ $12.00 a share

    Engaged is an activist in MX and they owed 9% in BDBD and they ended getting those guys to sell for $11/share last week. Engaged, we will take that same price here even though it should be $15+. Talk some sense into this value destroying mgmt and board. Those guys on board from Avenue overseeing this company like their founder overseeing the Milwaukee Sucks in the NBA. How did he ever make a $B? I guess he got there the broken clock syndrome. He was right once in a big way like a broken clock is once a day. Everything else he touches is like the Milwaukee Sucks and MX.

    They now have 1 year to come to terms with Endo on a deal. They will get together - just need to iron out price and Silva's role. ENDP right not to sell on the cheap - worth $90-100 easy and Perrigo will need to pay this if they want it. Otherwise, Silva is right to go it alone - their pain med's dominate and the new one is even better and they will eventually get to that price on their own within 24 months or less. PRGO probably offered something like $80 - and that just isn't going to cut it. ENDP will get to $80 once this whole "they are just like VRX" fades away and that process has already begun. ENDP is rediculously cheap now and that is why you have not seen any sort of rise on the short interest - smart money knows and even Citron knows - ENDP has no specialty subs, no price gouging. Great buy here.

    Have not so good feeling that board will say best move is to put in place a new CEO - probably Gary
    Tanner, guy they put on the board a few months back. Market, shareholders will not like the move but the longer this drags out management will need to do something especially if it doesn't sell and the third quarter isn't great and my guess it isn't. That would have been good move 2 years ago but not very good today. This board just needs to move on instead of milking MX even more of options, and board compensation.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • Folks, this is holding $9 for a reason - MX is not long for this market - FWIW IMHO won't be able to trade this in 2016.

    Doesn't really matter now what you bought it at but one has to ask if it is worth more in the future than what it closed at today? That would be emotive investing - everyday you make a decision to buy or sell - holding is a decision to "buy" that day because you think it has upside going forward - obviously there is always market noise but now with CEO stepping down moments ago - probably pre-cursor to bad quarter but could be good buying opportunity if market overreacts - we shall see the blind man.

  • With a “Peanuts” movie planned for theaters in time for the comic strip’s 65th anniversary, it’s fitting that a video game, “The Peanuts Movie: Snoopy’s Grand Adventure,” is planned before the movie's release. “The Peanuts Movie” game stars Snoopy, as he goes on a grand adventure with his pal Woodstock.

    In “Snoopy’s Grand Adventure,” everyone’s favorite cartoon beagle is searching for his good friend Charlie Brown in a game of hide and seek, as elaborated by IGN. Throughout the game Snoopy dons various costumes he’s worn in 65 years of “Peanuts” comics, including his iconic fighter pilot outfit.

    Snoopy traverses through a host of different environments -- including castles and jungles, which can be seen in the video below -- to find Charlie and his friends. But because Snoopy is known for an overactive imagination, the jungle may actually be a garden outside Charlie’s house.

    While different levels make the game seem a bit extreme, it does look like it will lead to some old-school platforming -- in a similar vein to the games seen in the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). MCV reports that there will be a two-player co-op option that allows the second player to control Woodstock and distract enemies, while Snoopy jumps on their heads to take them out.

    “Snoopy’s Grand Adventure” also seems to be a standalone game, though it does use a similar art style to the one seen in the upcoming film by Blue Sky. However, because the game focuses only on Snoopy and Woodstock, it seems like a safe buy for fans looking to avoid movie spoilers.

    “The Peanuts Movie: Snoopy’s Grand Adventure” is set for a Nov. 3 release for Sony PlayStation 4, Microsoft's Xbox One and Xbox 360, and Nintendo's Wii U and 3DS. The movie is set to come out in December.

    Lets break through $30

    Respectfully disagree - when most of the fast food concepts are reporting so-so earnings, Jack just knocked the cover off the ball. Doing a good job of refranchising (great ROIC) and have the optionality of Qdoba - plus big kicker, they are not even in half the states - lots of runway for growth - think this will be one of the better stocks in the industry for 2013.

    Okay, right through $31 and $32 with awesome earnings report. Think this has legs to $40 over next 12-15 months. I'll take that return any day.

    I am by myself on this one but these are the type of stocks that will outperform - the ones in the shadows of Wall Street. Next stop $31.
