going forward the div will be no more than $0.50 annually...so at $10 which we'll see tomorrow, that'd be a 5% yield...I suspect the stock should drift to $6-$7 range, where the yield will be slightly north of 10%...we wont see the record high spread we saw over the past year for a VERY long time, if ever....
i agree the results wiol be much worse than anticipated...I bet they report a big loss versus $0.04 positive EPS expectation and I bet there will be either no distribution or a very small one ($0.05-$0.10 somewhere). Not sure if it gets all the way to $9, but low $10's should be expected fairly soon.
there is no after hours "action"...are you talking about someone selling 100 shares lol?? Watch it have zero effect on tomorrow. In general, I agree, how in the world is anyone in their right mind buying this at this ludicrous valuation?? However, valuations and earnings don't matter right now and who knows how long this will continue...for now, people are buying the chart, and TRIP's chart looks simply unbelievable.
earnings and valuations dont matter anymore, welcome back to 1999. Just keep buying every chart that keeps going up and has an exponential upward slope. This includes nflx, tsla, any social media stock almost and any "cloud' computing stock (N, CRM, WDAY...)...just buy buy buy!!!! Have we seen this game before or what?? TRIP selling at almost 60x earnings now and people are buying head over fist? that's the way to go!!! Btw, its even better considering earnings estimates show NEGATIVE yoy growth for the current quarter. I love this, simply amazes me year in and year out...
ure nuts. Unless Japan goes into a severe recession this wont happen. I think you can safely short it to the low teens though over the next few months.
buy the rumor sell the news...we got the news coming and folks have been buying on the expectations of $0.62 for the Q.
be careful, as this may yet be just another Chinese fraud. We've had plenty of those in the past few years. its trading like one, so it is probably (realistically) one as well. May go to $0.20 and #$%$ there for years. The company has been awfully quiet while the stock has collapsed. The proposed "offer" to take the company private at $1.60 per share never materialized and we know nothing about why that happened. I'd say, looking at this company for a while, that there is a 75% chance that this is a fake, fraudulent company worth $0. Be careful and do more research before buying in.
A big portion of the "junk" I referred to is directly related to iPhone covers, where there's been tremendous growth over the past three years or so. That growth is pretty much done, as the phone cover market is pretty much saturated. My guess is that the luggage sales have also stalled recently as the business consumer goes on some conservative measures as it relates to discretionary spend (some macro uncertainties popping up here). So growth is likely stalling in their stores (we may see a negative comp even, I wouldn't be surprised one bit), so you're right, they do need to diversify their product assortment. However, moving from selling branded luggage to branded underwear is NOT vertical integration, in my opinion. These two things are so far apart, that I'm having a tough time grasping how this deal even came to someone's mind. Makes very little sense to me.
can you explain to me what you just said? TUMI is a well-known luggage brand (people associate it with high end luggage for business consumers). they also sell a ton of junk like phone covers for iPhones and similar stuff...now they're "expanding" their brand into the Sports underwear market lol?? Does this even any strategic sense whatsoever? Like I said, to me this implies desperation more than anything, the luggage sales must be really awful for them to consider doing this...on the other side, what in the world are they thinking??? To use the TUMI brand to make underwear??? This is ridiculous LOL!!!
just wait till the earnings report...you'll see $16 in no time on a big miss. This "news" pushing the stock up is HORRIBLE...clearly means the core business is suffering mightily...hence they're looking for new avenues of revenue growth...see you at $16 in a month!
Management already indictaed that after the plant construction will be done they will look to spend the cash on "shreholder-friendly" activities. Its in the conference call transcripts. Look even with depressed operations for the past few years ONP has produced around $20 in operating cash flow. If you scale capex to maintenance levels of lets say (conservatively) $10 million, you're coming to a $10 million free cash flow number. At a measly $30 million market cap the company trades at a ridiculous 3x cash flow multiple...makes no sense by any parameter...even with the cuirrent ops in place this should be an easy double from this share price level. With regards to "why not wait till theyre done with their capex plans"...the market is ALWAYS forward looking, the stock will begin to climb rapidly WAY before these plans are complete...just a simple indication by management about this completion and possible initiation of a buy-back will send this stock soaring...way before you will see it in the numbers.
thats not called an investment, thats called a trade. Look up the difference in the dictionary. Question: if you were to buy a whole company and opeate it for many years, would you be interested in buying WDAY at this price tag?? The answer to that question should answer whether one would "invest" into this stock or not. But go ahead, you can buy the chart and hope that you're not the last person hoding the "bag" lol. We've already seen this game back in '99...
their cash flow is going towards their currently capex-heavy projects. Once the plants are done and fully operational, they will likely either significantly raise the divvy or initiate a buy-back program. Please do more research on this company before posting.
