    The company’s CEO Drew Niv stated, “We believe that the sale proceeds PLUS CASH FREED FROM the balance sheet of these entities could exceed $250 million, which would go a long way towards repaying if not fully repaying the Leucadia loan.”

    When FXCM's loan is paid off, they'll probably offer a deal for Citibanks customers to switch over to FXCM.....just like the wireless phone companies do.

    Short sellers now want In..

    Yep. Eventually folks will wake up to the fact that the Citibank downgrade with a 75-cent target is due to Citibank being in direct competition with FXCM and their hope to see their competition destroyed....not gonna happen. When that $300 Million loan is paid off before the end of the year, this will end up being a multi-bagger from this current range near $2 bucks.

  • Its important to note that the March 13th conference call mentioned it was the balance sheet from the sale of these two assets which will add up to much more than the original sale estimate of $50 Million for both FXCM Japan and FXCM Hong Kong (well over with today's announcement of $62 million for FXCM Japan alone):

    Speaking during the earnings call, Mr. Niv said, “We have decided to exit the Japanese and Hong Kong retail markets selling our locally regulated subsidiary in each country. The sales will not only generate meaningful proceeds, but will also liberate over $50 million of cash which currently resides in these two entities.

    From the $50 million which Mr. Niv mentioned, $22 million in cash lie on the balance sheet of FXCM Japan, while the remaining $28 million are in the Hong Kong subsidiary of FXCM Inc.

    The company’s CEO Drew Niv stated, “We believe that the sale proceeds plus cash freed from the balance sheet of these entities could exceed $250 million, which would go a long way towards repaying if not fully repaying the Leucadia loan.”

    This is a multi-bagger from this price range. Once the loan, or bulk of it is paid off, this puppy will fly....and well before the end of this year.

    Hunan Xindaxin Co. last year launched an unsolicited $60 million bid for Origin Agritech Ltd. A Page One article Monday about the Chinese seed industry incorrectly gave the bid value as $60 billion.

    Origin Agritech shares spike higher after report of possible takeover interest - Shares of Origin Agritech (SEED), an agricultural biotechnology company engaged in crop seed breeding in China, are trading dramatically higher after a Wall Street Journal article suggested the company may again be an acquisition target for China-backed seed company Hunan Xindaxin. WHAT'S NEW: Over the weekend, The Wall Street Journal published an article entitled "China Seeks to Develop Global Seed Power." The article pointed out that China is trying to fend off seed giants like Monsanto (MON), DuPont (DD) and Syngenta (SYT) as it looks to encourage a seed developer that can keep pace with the technology of those dominant seed producers. Origin Agritech controls the rights to China?s first genetically modified corn, the publication noted. WHAT'S NOTABLE: State-backed Hunan Xindaxin launched an unsolicited $60B bid or $2.50 per share for for Origin Agritech last year that was eventually rejected in November. However, according to the WSJ article, Origin Agritech's chairman, Han Gengchen, believes that Xindaxin is ready to revive its take over efforts for Origin Agritech as China looks to fend off foreign competition. In an interview, Gengchen commented that "Xindaxin has its strengths?the question is whether it's able to give Origin any margin." PRICE ACTION: Shares of Origin Agritech are up almost 24% this morning to $1.31 per share.

  • China looks to develop seed program to fend off foreign competition, WSJ says - China is looking to develop a domestic seed program to hold its own against foreign competitors including Monsanto (MON), DuPont (DD) and Syngenta (SYT), says the Wall Street Journal. State-backed seed company Hunan Xindaxin launched an unsolicited$60B bid for Origin Agritech (SEED), a seed developer that controls the rights to China?s first genetically modified corn, last year that was rejected, added the Wall Street Journal. According to the Wall Street Journal report, Hunan Xindaxin may be ready to launch another takeover attempt of Origin Agritech as china looks to fend off foreign competition.

    why is BGC halted, now open and up $2.30?

    These rumor reports during trading hours from Bloomberg seem to be wrong 9 out of 10 times these past several months.....you could pretty much trade against them and get ahead.

  • screwhp screwhp Mar 5, 2015 10:28 PM Flag

    Actually it just means that they'd do a reverse stock split if need be.

  • ....."the previous management under Meg Whitman over paid for Aruba and we are now forced to take a $2 Billion charge for that mistake"....

    I understand your thinking. I just wouldn't be short quite yet. Not as long as momentum is still in play. Add the fact that Friday's volume was the highest ever, it closed well into the high end of the daily range, and weekend gaps often do well.....I just think you're too early to be short. My other concern would be that Thursday, the pullback day, the volume dropped off considerably which normally indicates strength and the likelihood of higher daily highs to come. I'm long, but also trading based on my experience. The only thing that would make it stronger is if it was already trading at new highs, but those haven' t been taken out, at least not yet.

    Since when do fundamentals make any difference as to a stocks pricing when major news hits the wires.....for the short term anyway? Sure it will come down, but not until its done makings its upward move. Monster volume greater than opening IPO day.....that's major new money coming to the table. With higher highs and higher volume on a Friday, the weekend crowd will most likely absorb the news, come in on Monday morning causing it to gap up.....I wouldn't be surprised if this behemoth hits a new high during the day on Monday.

  • The question is, will it become a BEHEMOTH on Monday and take out the highs?

  • screwhp screwhp Feb 24, 2015 11:01 PM Flag

    With a higher price move today and volume greater than the IPO start date....Not likely....this is new money coming in and the lock-up date isn't until mid-May. Today was just accumulation, this will most likely make significantly higher moves, possibly for several more days.

  • screwhp screwhp Feb 24, 2015 10:52 PM Flag

    Probably another multi-year Enterprise Services contract.....you know, the ones with big dollar figures that end up costing HP more than they take in.

  • Monster, with more daily moves ahead.

    Today's close?

    Not sure, but it looks like new money has come in and accumulation is occurring. So, it looks like we may have larger intraday range moves in the coming days. Its an awfully constricted price range today considering the excessive volume. I'm fairly confident in this since the lock-up expiration date isn't until May 18th.

    Was looking at the "Key Statistics" on Yahoo.....probably not going to be correct until after their first earnings report.

    Maybe. Short interest had dropped considerably prior to today. Intraday support seems week today though. Perhaps there is a fear of a secondary offering that would dilute the price....happens a lot with cash-strapped companies in their early stages, and they tend to announce these just after a bump in price due to news.....like this one today. If not, this could be the beginning of a nice swing trade.
