Allied Telcom gets bought by Verizon and the leftover assets become Winstream.
Winstream, with these legacy assets is getting hammered and so they spin -off Computer Sales and Leasing.....as a REIT, no less, in a transaction that looks like anything other than a REIT or MLP either... Has anyone been assured by the Co or by a Private Letter Ruling from the IRS as to whether this transaction deserved to be 1) a legit tax free spin-off by Winstream and 2) the corporate structure of CS&L is eligible for REIT status? This sure seems like an aggressive stance for the leftovers of a leftover to be built upon. Unless I have my facts wrong.
like property attacks? That is for an insurance company to cover!
Little wonder that folks don't trust Wall St. These types of scams began in earnest when the credit default swaps (insurance written to pay back against a loss in the event of a default on a discrete bond issue) came to fruition. So the lender entices a borrower to take out a loan. The borrower, in this case Ocwen and /or HLSS. They agree to the loan and terms, with the understanding that neither this borrower or any of their consorts or affiliates will do anything to depress the value of the equity or harm the company in any way. Because if they do, their will be a cause for action against them. Just like a collection agency cant call your neighbors and tell them that you are a dead-beat and they need your cell phone number. Because your reputation will have been smeared, and that is out of bounds to the issue of collecting on a debt. Certain high profile cases presided over by certain NY Dist US Bnkruptcy judges in lower Manhattan have served to embolden these sharks over the past 10 years. But there is definitely a line that they must never cross- and it will be up to Ocwen and HLSS to determine if they want to pursue a legal remedy. The only other possibility is that someone (s) at Ocwen or HLSS is deliberately feeding info to these Hedge Funds and exacerbating the slide. Reason- they have cut a deal ahead of a bankruptcy filing to get paid for the workout, or in future reorg benefits a la shares in newco. I have no knowledge of the specifics in this case. But I would direct anyone to the Calpine and Delphi cases and google "zone of insolvency" as a good place to start on your research.
Look at their 10-K
I cant believe the idiots who are selling into this obvious bear raid. If I were a Saudi prince - this company would look pretty good right now. But if I were a Saudi Prince I wouldnt be wasting my time on this board either
WhatsApp was purchased for 19 Billion
A couple of days before FB bot WhatsApp Viber was bought for $900mm by Rakuten (Feb 13, 2014)
Go figure-- looks like to me FB overpaid, big-time!

Institutions don't understand this company because management hasn't explained their story very well. Shorts are controlling the price and new investors are unable to figure out their story- again- because management doesn't sell their story. It may be as simple as management doesn't see any benefit in promoting a higher stock price. Seems like their board would set them straight. They have all the most valuable patents and technology for LED lighting manufacturing. It is a very complex process to mass-manufacture these special semi-conductors. A large portion of their revenues comes from this capability. Mgmt doesn't feel obligated to educate the stock market because they know these guys aren't engineers and wont understand anyway. It doesnt meant they shouldn't tho.
Why dont you come out of the shadows and expose yourself?
Cost of sand vs ceramic is negligible over the long haul--
Benefits of ceramic over sand is HUGE over the long term--
Porosity and permeability of well physiology is of tremendous importance - ie when the wells are first drilled a gush of resources will issue forth and pay back the cost to acquire and construct the entire operation -3-4mm - over the first 2 years. Then afterwards the long term profit profile of the wells are realized. Ceramic sphericles hold open the fractured shale beds. They are much harder (don't give way under millions of tons of pressure) and dont have sharp edges (which will cause the shale layers to collapse around the particle and block the gas/oil) and can be sized correctly and commensurate with the physiology of the beds in which they are inserted.
Looks like nervous short covering -- churn causing angst among legions of shorts as they try to hold down the price in order to cover
The ED drug announcement by Vivus gives the competitors staying power so that dynamic hedging can persist - ie. short orex long arna/vvus.
