  • in it's battle with TICC Management and Board, I speculate that yesterdays drop was related to TPG's sell off.

    All Direct Open Market Purchases! All Direct Purchases but one. The top officers and Director Royce paid for these purchases from their own savings! In this small universe this is a seismic shift. I believe it indicates all issues will be resolved. Uncertainty will continue to diminish and Confidence will continue to build. The fat fisted moves of the likes of TPG that did nothing but push TICC lower (and create great buying opportunities) are in effect Over. My 34,500 shares (already in the black) will back any future TICC Board recommendations. (And, I'll be enjoying that 10K divided in a few weeks). Life is good! Tom Connelly

    You're tripping Biscut! You really don't know what your talking about. You''re real danger is that you have a very inflated view of your intelligence and judgement. So, good luck with your toxic attitude but you're going into the "ignore" trash can.

    Brisket - Please re-read my post "OR stockholders owning more than 10% of a firm's shares." Let me know if you need a bit of help in correct understanding. You consistently seem to confuse and cloud the issues; You seem to equate your mistaken knowledge with the Truth. Or else your upset your short position has you panicking. Seriously, why else would you, a self-professed NON holder of TICC be so consistent and quick in attempts to discredit any and all unfavorable news and events.

    Section 16(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 prohibits short-swing profits (from any purchases and sales within any six-month period) made by corporate directors, officers, or stockholders owning more than 10% of a firm's shares. Under Section 10(b) of the 1934 Act, SEC Rule 10b-5, prohibits fraud related to securities trading.

    In retrospect, it all seemed like a good idea - that is to vote against the BOD. In the end however, the whole episode just resulted in uncertainty and doubt along with $$$ in lawyers. I think TPG et al went off only half cocked and they look even more foolish today complaining about out of pocket share purchases by top TICC execs. This drove the share price into the 4s. No way I want to see that process repeat. I'm all in for letting the management make the hand over of their choice and get a premium in the process. Knowing when the battle is won, I am voting BOD all the way. Tom Connelly

    So, you think the officers are not subject to the SEC regs concerning swing trades?

  • TPG's main argument is that because top TIPP execs haven't done this in a decade, they shouldn't do it now. In my opinion, these purchases are great for share holders. Nothing like large common stock positions purchased out of pocket to align managements interests with the rest of us shareholders. I say to management BUY MORE. TPG lost. They made a clumsy move to foil management's plan and all it did was cost share holders a fortune in legal fees. My own, 34,500 shares are now directly aligned with management. Good luck to them. Hope they get enough shares to get their desired outcome. TPG and the others should go away: Enough of these failed expensive strategies by TPG and others. I am voting with Cohen, Royce and Rosenthal as recommend on any future Board initiatives.

    "- Look for batches of insider activity: If CEO, CFO, 4 directors and their mother-in-laws are all buying shares, it means much more than just one officer buying." CODY TRADES

  • skincancersurgery by skincancersurgery May 17, 2016 10:36 AM Flag

    -' Remember that insiders can’t swing trade: If an insider buys shares, he can’t sell for 6 months for profit. When he sells, he has to give the profits back to the company. So, don’t expect miracles right away when you see insider buys. If the buys are convincing, put the stock on your watch-list and look for potential catalysts in the mid-term."

    Maybe gathering voting shares needed to pass their own plan for management change. I think current management is strongly motivated to retire and they want to insure comfort in that retirement. Very understandable and in my telephone conversations with Mr. Cohen, it is clear that he believes he has navigated a prudent course with TICC and therefore may feel he has deserved a generous payout with the transition to new management.
    This time round, I am just going with management recommendations on plan. I'm not voting for waisting more money on yet more lawyers and legal actions. I've bought a lot a 5 and below and have 32 K shares that I am going to vote for the Boards recommendations. I know that is not popular on this message board now. Tom Connelly

    Stock Bashing: "This scheme is usually orchestrated by savvy online message board posters (a.k.a. "Bashers") who make up false and/or misleading information about the target company in an attempt to get shares for a cheaper price. This activity, in most cases, is conducted by posting libelous posts on multiple public forums. The perpetrators sometimes work directly for unscrupulous Investor Relations firms who have convertible notes that convert for more shares the lower the bid or ask price is; thus the lower these Bashers can drive a stock price down by trying to convince shareholders they have bought a worthless security, the more shares the Investor Relations firm receives as compensation. Immediately after the stock conversion is complete and shares are issued to the Investor Relations firm, consultant, attorney or similar party, the basher/s then become friends of the company and move quickly to ensure they profit on a classic Pump & Dump scheme to liquidate their ill gotten shares. (see P&D)"
