" i think we get a strong oil rebound in the next 3 quarters so this thing should rip at some point."
Modest? Doesn't sound like it to me.
Perhaps you should buy more.
"what appears to have been a 200.000 + sale,"
I think you mean 200,000 shares.
I agree, it is interesting how these buyout rumors coincide with large sellers and a declining stock price. I've seen this pattern many times over the years.
Investors may want to consider the source of these rumors.
EPS growth looks to be about 14% for both this year and 2016, not sure where you are coming up with 35%.
It's a good company, but I would be hesitant to pay more than 20 times 2015 EPS of 4.33.
The shorts are not going away. Historically, the stock is pretty volatile. Most technical measures suggest it is overbought.
After listening to today's call there is no mystery to the latest price action.
This story is seriously constipated.
Milan marched the company into a blind alley, reminds me of that scene in "Animal House".
I agree. The stock traded at this price two years ago, coupled with no dividends equals dead meat.
On the other hand, management has tried to be shareholder friendly over the years. It will be interesting to hear what they have to say next week.
Undoubtedly, he will drone on ad nauseam.
He always does.
But alas, to what end. If words were silver and gold we would all be rich.
reminds me a lot of the weeks preceding third quarter miss and troponin screw up in October.
The trials are supposed to begin again in mid February - does someone know something?
Management doesn't appear to have purchased a share in the last three months.
Not sure you can trust these guys.
