in store mobile advertising is one of the things that i have referred to here several times in the past. mobile advertising is the next big arena in digital advertising, and there is still a lot of room for innovation and early adaptation there. but, based on past experience, i will be amazed if dex can innovate or even become an early adapter here. they're far too much of a laggard in a rapidly evolving industry.
i see 16k shares, not really heavy volume. i chalk it up to anxiety over likely financing this week. registration statement still hasn't been made effective...it's wait and see at this point.
oh yeah...your trolling post really hit a nerve...that's how idiot sexist wife beating bozo's like me are.
by the way, how many people in this world really use the word bozo? ;-)
nobody jumped down your throat about anything. i guess your tendency to take things too personally explains your tendency to overreact.
also, none of the conversation last night was about whether or not a partnership was in the works. it was about your mischaracterization of the form 4's.
finally, i believe at least 1 person has responded everytime a basher has said anything in here. the only difference is the bashers don't tend to debate their illogical points after somebody calls them out.
beat my wife? wow. troll much?
got my butt whipped? let's see, a couple (might have only been one, maybe 2) of people with a lot of id's (here you are with another id) proved that they can't understand the difference between buying stock in the open market and being paid a dividend in stock when you have no other choice. one of them even stooped so low as to misquote a section of the 8-k to try to prove their point and got busted by me. it's funny how they disappeared immediately after that, but when you have to misquote something to try to prove a point, i guess it should be pretty obvious that your point is invalid. they all threw out weak insults which is typical of somebody that knows they have no leg to stand on in a debate. also, when you start pulling out all of your multiple id's to make it look like people are on your side, it becomes even more apparent you realize you don't have a leg to stand on. i'm comfortable with saying i didn't get anything "whooped". did i change anybody's mind? probably not...due to their own inability to apply rational logic, their mind was already made up.
no, they didn't. but, thanks for the attempt at an insult. since intellectual honesty is already in question here, i find it interesting that you cut off your quote where you did. here's the full statement that you so graciously edited to suit your needs:
"Holders of the Preferred Stock will be entitled to quarterly dividends at an annual rate of 5.0% for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 and at an annual rate of 10% thereafter, in each case, payable in cash or, subject to certain conditions, Common Stock."
what's funny is that i'm far from being the only one to point this out. where am i being obtuse?
on the other hand, suggesting that insiders bought shares in that transaction is rather intellectually dishonest.
because he didn't voluntarily put up cash to buy the shares. he didn't have the option to receive the cash. that's not a split hair. like i have said, if he had the option to receive cash or shares and took the shares instead, i would agree with your point.
i haven't twisted this into a negative. in fact, i agree with you. it is remotely positive. ;-)
i would consider an actual insider buy, on the other hand, to be extremely positive.
if they would have had the option to take cash rather than shares, i would agree with you. but, they did not. if they had taken cash out of their pocket to buy shares, i would agree with you. but, they did not. instead, they took the only option that they had, which was shares. not selling shares is not the same as buying shares. but, hey...keep on spinning on.
now, they did have the option to let their dividend accrue, to be paid in cash at a later date. but, given that the stock is most likely fairly close to a low, even if the offering does happen, they realize that accepting the shares today is probably a good option. however, if they were able to delay the receipt of those shares until after the offering was announced, of course they would have done so to get more shares. but, they are not able to control the timing like that. in other words, their acceptance of the shares is in no way a signal of a pending offering or partnership, but it is a signal in their belief that the stock will rise in the future. having said all of that, it's still not akin to them buying shares.
the funny thing about pumpers is that they hate realists as much as dumpers do. but, it's all good. i view pumpers and dumpers with equal disdain. i have had much trading success by being a realist. no company is a 100% perfect investment, and no company is a 100% bad investment. the advantage of being realistic about investments is that you can more successfully weigh the pros and cons without ever being emotionally attached.
i assume in your mind, somebody only bought shares. a trade actually requires a buy and a sell. that's just being realistic.
no, the glass always has some water in it for me. there's always room for more, and there's always room for less. it's called being realistic rather than spinning things just to try to pump a stock up.
when they take cash out of their pocket and buy shares, then i'll say they bought shares. otherwise, you're really only fooling yourself by spinning this.
for the long's benefit, i do hope that you are correct about print revenue (i assume you mean print when you say Yellow Pages).
unfortunately, an extended history of consistent revenue declines hasn't shown any sign of getting better thus far. i don't know how closely you have kept up with the company's financials overtime, but with the manner in which they have taken impairment on their directory services agreements and drastically reduced the remaining useful lives on them, the company has signalled what they expect. at this point, they have about 4 years left on the useful lives of those agreements...there's a good chance they won't stay in the print yp advertising business much longer than that.
no, it's not the same. the company doesn't have the cash right now to pay a cash dividend, so the stock dividend payout was the only option. if the company did have the cash to pay out, it's entirely possible that hart and imhoff would have taken the cash and not reinvested it in the company.
thanks! the next 3-6 months will be interesting. this company will either be made or broken in that time frame. either way, hang on tight, and best of luck!
