    Im not clear but with the common expecting to payout cash in Jan and the preferred already paid off, I would think this has a reasonable likelihood of being paid early. Unless there is no financial benefit for doing so.

  • That's my highest price by far.

    I bought in 1/28/13 and missed the first reinvestment. Just got cash for that one.

    You really are clueless.

    I have no position.

    What makes you think the offer is for over a buck ?

    40 cents & keeping them from bankruptcy would be a win for a 22.5 cent stock with heavy losses & sales decreases.

    WRT would seem to have little or no upside.

    While the common could be worth $21 over time.

    So, that's 18% upside.

    Analyst Wilkes Graham's estimate of liquidation value is $21.03 per share, well north of the company's recent estimate of $18.35 (which itself has been raised significantly).
    The most critical asset to Graham's NAV calculation is 20 Times Square, Winthrop's (FUR +0.4%) $1B hotel/retail development. The longer Winthrop delays sale of its interests in assets, the greater the potential returns, says Graham, who also notes management - led by Michael Ashner who knows a few things about liquidations - could sell the company at any point, thus accelerating returns (the company's goal is to sell everything by August 2016).

    12 Straight years of losses & 12 straight years of BS press releases is not enough for you ?

    You have to give any company at least 25 years to show significant revenue, right ?


    37 cents today.

    35.2 cents bid,36.4 cents offered. Tightest spread Ive noticed in some time.

  • I bought at $44.40, dividend reinvested, then bought 125% more at $40.51.

    But, when considering if I should sell some, I declined because its still got a good yield and my position is small relative to my assets. (3.2% of my IRA, none in my regular account)

    So while trading the stock might be something I will consider in the future, right now its just not a big enough position to do it with.

  • Continue to post that its overvalued.

    I will make fun of him when we break $20 again.

  • Where are all the pumpers now ?

    Price is below the most recent private placement shares of 40 cents. Of course 40 cents is really 35.6 cents net to the company after sales commissions.

    How many other companies pay commissioned sales people 11% to sell below market private placement shares ?

    Wait, I know, Sue the messenger. They're already trying that. It just makes me LOUDER.

  • I guess its no wonder we are down some.

    Of course, black Friday weekend by itself cant speak for the entire month/quarter.

  • The core technology, which comprises database management, communications systems integration, user interface design and integration, web design, and e-commerce solution capabilities, has practical applications that create business opportunities in multiple industries. For example, the same advanced compression technology that enables MedCast transmissions also enables us to offer hospitals an inexpensive storage solution to meet federal mandates for maintaining archival copies of diagnostic images. In addition to handling diagnostic imagery recorded through MedCast, our data storage service is designed to provide secure, off-site back up of a myriad of other medical records.

    The Company intends to offer these applications and service capabilities to other companies on a contract basis. In addition to sports medicine and broader medical applications, there are numerous other potential vertical markets for the core technology. Some examples include:

    1. Department of Defense
    2. Human Resources
    3. Employers with High Physical Wellness Requirements (examples)
    a. Law Enforcement
    b. Emergency Personnel
    c. Public Transportation Services
    4. Health/Life Insurance Underwriting


    Included in the license from Med Wireless, Inc. were relationships developed by Med Wireless for the distribution of ultrasound machines used primarily by obstetricians. The Company developed a sale and leaseback program and made a public announcement by press release on January 7, 2003, that it received over $7 million in orders that were contingent on obtaining financing for the equipment. The sale and leaseback program was designed to provide inventory financing for the Company. Under this plan, the Company would sell ultrasound machines to third parties who would then in turn lease back the equipment to the Company. The Company then would rent the machines to medical providers at a premium to its cost. The $7 million in orders were comprised of 33 separate orders by third parties for machines at a cost of $224,178 per machine. However, as disclosed in the press release, financing was necessary to complete the sales. The Company also indicated that with financing in place it expected to be able to generate more than $20 million in sales during the first quarter of 2003. This expectation was based on the speed in which we obtained the orders and management's discussions with finance brokers regarding the Company's ability to obtain financing for these orders. Since that announcement the Company spent considerable effort to obtain financing for these orders, including the retention of multiple finance brokers. However, despite these best efforts, the Company has yet to obtain financing for this equipment. The principal reason these orders have not been financed successfully is the Company's lack of credit worthiness. However, the business opportunity related to the ultrasound lease program remains viable and management intends to continue to review financing options and business opportunities related to the ultrasound business when the Company has sufficient credit resources to qualify as a borrower as well as evaluate its practical execution in light of all other business developments in the Company at the time it is financially feasible.

    The Company also intends to acquire companies to take advantage of economies of scale and vertical market opportunities as well as pursue similar business opportunities like NuWay Sports.

    Whenever a CEO leaves you have his severance charges and when they are talking about stores that don't meet expectations that usually involves a write down.

    And when they hire a new CEO, he will want to clear the decks with a writedown.

    "we are optimizing our inventory investment and continue to evaluate the profitability of our store portfolio and close those stores that do not justify their expense burden as their leases expire or other real estate opportunities arise.”

    Not good. Expect a large charge.

    But that's already priced into the stock.

    Hopefully sales are not way down.

    PBY is just too cheap. They are going to sell it or fix it and sell it for more. Either way, shareholders win.

    Not sure we can use this to predict future prices but its fun to look at.
