ULTRASOUND AND MED WIRELESS RELATED ASSETS
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.
How did Calvert do last time ????

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.

Looks like nearly 1.6 million covered in the last 2 weeks. 12.7 million to go.
Not sure we can use this to predict future prices but its fun to look at.

How can they possibly lose so much money for 12 years straight ?
This is where a paid tout chimes in and says they only lost $10 million in cash over the last 12 years.
Like that's something to boast.
Im using 90 cents because Im highly confident this man has been around long enough not to overpromise & under-deliver.
So the estimates are built to be beat.
And its not going to take massive sales gains to do so.
He is keeping the bar low so that he can easily scale it. And if he never disappoints, why would the stock tank ?
I don't recall paying much attention to stocks that have run so far with such a high short interest near year end so it will be interesting.
Director Willis, who was a past buyer at $8.96 and $12.53 has "gifted" away nearly 3 times what he bought in the open market. About 37% of his holdings.
Im assuming for tax reasons and that those shares will be sold fairly soon.
Gross margins were never the big issue here. You're making a mountain out of a molehill.
Sharper initial price points mean lower margins.
Hopefully with less future markdowns & higher sales.
Well, I think they have guided well. That is, they signaled a lot of low hanging fruit which should drive earnings gains for 5-6 quarters if not longer.
Disappointing, as in negative SSS or something like that would tank the stock but I just don't see that happening.
Per yahoo the estimates for the Dec quarter are 44-60 cents with an average of 55.
I doubt they come in below 50.
And if everything is on track, I guess it could continue higher.
Tax loss buying from the shorts prior to year end could drive the stock higher.
My orders are in waiting to be filled at higher prices.
merchandising powerhouse ?
What products do they have on walmart shelves ?
I don't recall being any SNS brand products there. Although we don't have a lot of SNS stores in my neck of the woods.
Maxim is a total crapshoot and he even admits as much.
Overall,I appreciate a lengthy shareholder letter every year. I just wish they would provide either a streaming feed or a transcript of the annual meeting so that those who cannot travel will not be out of the loop.
This year, he all but told us the stock was undervalued.
Id love to be able to sell out at $25 and $27-28 but the point you have been making for months now is it could fall back despite nothing being fundamentally wrong here.
On the other hand, what if some of the shorts want to cover for their tax losses before year end ?
I didn't sell much RCKY at near $20 this time around and it fell back to $13 on me.
Calvert has been doing this for 12 years with 3+ businesses and 12 straight years of losses. Almost no revenues.
My post was removed but its 100% true.
There are 8 firms. the avg is 79c cnts.
Lets use 90 cents. $21.69=24 x next years earnings. Not THAT high given we could be in the early stages of multiple years of sales & earnings growth.
Say $1.20 the following year and then throw a 30 multiple on it and you've got $30 a share. Discount that by 20% and you have a present value of $25.
My problem is I don't pay these high of multiples for stocks. So its difficult to hold them.
