    "We rate LADENBURG THALMANN FINL SERV (LTS) a BUY. This is driven by a number of strengths, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, compelling growth in net income, good cash flow from operations, solid stock price performance and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins."

    so you will make it easy for the board, fool, when the earning release reveals continued success and growth by LTS.....then we know you are a fool. However, if they fall down and fail in their earning, you can teach us more.

    impedup...........please don't confuse revenues (the amount of money generated by a company BEFORE expenses with profits. This privately held firm has unknown yearly profits. I am sure, though, that LTS did their due deligence prior to purchase. LTS is doing all the right moves.

    BD.....I will disagree a little......remember, so much of the float is owned by insiders/officers and us folks who have held this for greater than a decade with no plans on sale.......there is then, ususally a small volume of active trading.....if you watched the action through the years.....there was always a MM who would step in and drip the price down...or actively throw large volumes to tamp down any motion upward in the stock. Now, who would want to perform this except a large position short? I postulate that there have been a small but very powerful short players in the stock...and in that interest in this stock and thus volume is small.....up to now......the short could play his game without interference. It is only now when active large volume longs are stepping in that the push back from the shorts will be diminished.....and if ehough change in PPS, covering.

    I suggest Foolmeonce buy stock in P&G as he'll be buying a bit of their incontinence products as he fills his pants.

  • securities101 by securities101 Jul 7, 2014 4:06 PM Flag

    The longs are finally sucking up the massive sells the shorts are throwing into the market to try to drive the price down from their large holdings.......if this continues, the short's gunpowder will run out eventually and they will be forced to cover. However.....be aware....the players on the short side have VERY deep pockets if you've watched them over the years........
