If a financial advisor gives me a stock that proceeds to lose 45% over the next year and all he can say is "God bless the believers"....I fire him on the spot!!!!
There is a giant paragraph there and you only read the first 2 sentences. The rest of the paragraph explains things like... making an acquisition in cash would negatively affect results unless it generates some earnings and cash flow.
That is why they exclude that kind of thing from AFFO, because it isn't a consistent expense. It doesn't say they exclude ALL expenses.
My initial thoughts are a defensive move. But I've been trying to think through the logic of it being some kind of tax shield.
I would think if there were an inquiry of interest towards buying the company we would see some sort of 8-K any day now. We may not get an answer until the next conference call.
I agree (out of character)... NATH has always been very conservative with their balance sheet. Been trying to think this though.
Steel Partners doesn't own those Nathans shares anymore. They were transferred over to NOL shell COSN in exchange for COSN stock.
I just started looking at this company. Was only commenting on the chance of making an acquisition.
Feel free to criticize the company, i can usually learn a lot faster if there is some back and forth instead of all cheerleaders on a message board.
The Appaloosa Management LP 13F does not show any ownership in this stock.
The 13G was filed by Appaloosa Partners Inc. on Feb 14,2013. nothing changed since then.Looks like they still own it.
2 different entities, but it's all David Tepper.
There is good and bad in the report but mostly good.
Free cash flow is strong and the next 2 year cycle looks good with 80% of retrans being negotiated up and the presidential race.
On the negative, no mention of ring of honor. I read they only had 8,000 PPV buys last show. must be struggling. And the debt was supposed to be down to 4.7X. They mentioned pushing 5X on the call. I forgive that for now cause when a deal like the vegas station pops up, you gotta buy it.
I only provided a quote from the call that you left out.
If that upsets you, go seek anger management help.
