    So you have been here since $4? Wow!

  • No you are right. WHY focus on valuation! LMAO!

    So why is WG technically breaking down daily? Why is daily volume collapsing?

    Remember it was you that told everyone last week that every time the stock price goes down enlightened institutions rush in and buy shares. Hate to break it to you but money has been leaving the issue for sometime now..........

  • Little Bill,

    Let's assume that you are right. $.17 per share and the stock goes to $18. Let's assume the company does $.17 per share every quarter from now on. Just think, at $18 the stock will have factored in 10 years profitability into the share price ($350 million).

    1 years operating profits, not bottom line performance, 10 years. Seems irrational to this valuation specialist.

    Bill,
    You continue to amaze with your lack of understanding of the compsny. Once again, please call Mr. Collier and ask him about the money owed to the Nigerians in 2015& 16. Stop ranting and make the call.

    I find it interesting that you assign a PE of 24 to WG which far exceeds the PE historical norm for an O&G construction, let alone a company like WG whose balance sheet sucks. A PE of 24 for WG while the S&P 500 typically has a PE of 15 or 16..........but you little Billy t a 24 for a company that is about to issue a secondary per the CFO himself: Prepared To Take advantage of the favorable capital markets. Could he be saying that WG is fully valued?

    But like a child bidding a mo-mo stock you are trying to convince everyone everyday that when WG reports its, per your own estimate and description, a paltry $.17 operating profit which we both know is not real bottom line performance, a paltry $8.5 million operating profit...........that this is somehow rational justification for the stock to increase to $18, or, WG will increase in value $350 million, well, because of a crummy $.17 per share non-profit. You really are a child. Please sell your professional pump job to someone else.

    And you think that kind of financial performance justifies a naked enterprise value of $1 Billion.

    And your analysis mentions the Nigertans........translation WG still doesn't make money. BTW, did you call Mr. COllie yet regarding payments to the Nigerians in 2015 & 2016?

    Who knows, maybe when the oil & gas, and facing revolution get started WG Wll actually make real $$. Oh, that's right, the revolting has been going on for 6 years+ now. And WG still doesn't produce real profits.

    But why live in reality in regard to financial performance and valuation? $.17 per share? You better hope for blow out #'s..............double that.

  • Generally this is indicative of a stock which is fully valued. When a company's PR program completely disappears it is I indicative of a poorly run company with nothing to say. When company insiders fail to purchase shares with their own money, but only wait for their FREE Zero cost option shares it is indicative of employees who see the day-to-day operations, bot see just how poorly run the company is.

    So when the CEO Randy Harl does his stand up comic roll every 90 days with brilliant commentary like, "you all know why we are going to do good"..........?? And thenjoy quarter-after-quarter delivers dismal operational and financial results........this is why company insiders will not purchase shares with their own money.

    WG's increase in value has already taken place.

    Microsoft laying off 18000 employees in 2015.
    Housing construction down 9.3% in June.
    Returning military to add 50,000+ to the unemployment rolls
    Permanent structural unemployment here to stay.
    FED purchasing US debt every 30 days, after auto riding the Treasury to print it 30 days earlier.
    America Bankrupt and unable to pay back debt.

    Meanwhile OBAMA will do 3 or 4 fund raisers this week, but has not attended a 9th intelligence briefing in 3 years.
    And Michelle is purchasing $1000 purses.

    WHERE HAS WG's VOLUME GONE?

    by marko_los_osos Jul 16, 2014 3:30 PM
    spanspur spanspur Jul 17, 2014 12:18 PM Flag

    Where has the volume gone? Well, when WG management does not give guidance, does not have a PR program, Why would one venture into or invest in the stock. It has a leafy run, and yet one more quarter management creates a picture of uncertainty. Anyone who has been here for more than a year knows how management seems to go out of their way to empower the short side of the equation. Remember the cc that was announced 25 minutes before it took place, lasted 12 minutes, and resulted in a $250 million sell off.
    WG management was literally laughing at that cc. And Houston based investment houses did not seem to concerned with the $250 million selloff.

    This quarter there are projects that will show up after being sandbagged, but those believing that a real # of $600 million in revenues will take place are once again misguided and out of the loop hopefuls looking in from a drunken perspective. The problem with WG is that it is a poorly run company that never ever performs. Management is grossly or paid. Look at the CFO, he just received just under ! 1 million in free stock in the last 6 months on top of his outrageous salary. Management has given to themselves ZERO cost options equally just under 2% of the entire value of the company in the last 12 months.

    The best thing is to replace the CEO and clean house of the bloated good old boy overpaid non-performing team.

    You should walk behind me and pick up the change that falls out of my pockets. Inventing? Self made multi millionaire because of the capital markets. I am now flying to my imaginary ranch high in the Rockies today.

    Since you have little desire or memory of WV management's actions from less than 7 years ago may I call your attention to the cc 12 months ago. It was long overdue. Everyone what in the hell is WV management doing? So without announcement, I believe it was last May, unannounced WV management gives everyone an hour to get ready, the CO announces the typical sub standard #'s, laughs as he announces a sizeable operating loss. Management is on the floor for 15 minutes. The stock craters 250 million. There were rumors that it was a professional short sale cull job. Of course, it was followed by 4 more terrible quarters.

    So $.20 per share, to your dismay, will lead to a nice sell off imo.

    Watch and learn. WG, bte, institutions are not buying it on dips. Volume is declining.

  • spanspur spanspur Jul 15, 2014 3:48 PM Flag

    Little Bill,

    Are you saying public ally that I have slandered Harl? Can you be specific, since you already have a track record of misleading everyone here. Please be specific rather than cast shadow
    on Spanspur. It was, I believe Forbes Maga zine itself that mentioned all that went with the justice department investigation investigation, I believe there was a $20 million fine, and I believe the $6 million bribe money was also lost according to Forbes.

    Anyway, you too should watch your comments and descriptions as you have already lessened my standing with your false and misleading commentary, which may in fact be actionable.

    Little bill you don't attack Spanspur each and everyday, and I will stop communicating with you. OK little bill?

  • spanspur spanspur Jul 15, 2014 1:55 PM Flag

    John,

    Now that you have been fingered for overt/deliberate lying to this WG Yahoo Finance Message board, it would probably not be a good time to mention your history as a career criminal, X-convict, and all that goes with it.

    I'll save that for another time. How much did you make on KNDI between yesterday and today?

  • spanspur spanspur Jul 15, 2014 12:35 PM Flag

    But you did use the description "insiders have been buying", and then even Glen noticed that in the real world that insiders have not been buying.......LOL.

    And even if you have been selling WG shares in May, June, and July.............I won't hold it against you.

    And finally John, I thought it was classic semantics when you said that I just met you just 8 months ago. Was this when you created yet another (1 or 450) Yahoo Finance Message board ID's.
    Also, congrats on the big move in KNDI, and I see where another of your alter egos, Senor Wolftts, now has a SELL recommendation on CAMP. Yep, when the CEO starts unloading it is time to go.

  • That WG insiders were "buying" WG stock with their own money on the open market, or, was that an illusion.

    Also, your Fidelity account reveals that you were selling shares in WG in May, June, and July. So what's up with that. Why are you telling people to buy when you were selling WG shares? Why did you lie to everyone on this board about insider buying? There hasn't been a purchase of WG shares by an insider since November of 2013, and the two of them were insignificant.

    Please, just explain to us why you are once again lying to everyone. TIA...................

    "CAMP has actually lost market share"..................

  • CAMP has actually market share. But why deal in reality. B-Riley made theirs................suckers!

    Wow this stock has absolutely no strength.

    typically non-growth companies with PE's of 55+ do go down. CAMP has gone negative on the growth quotient after they purchased WM. They lost $20 million of the $80 million in revenues that they purchased from WM. But why deal in reality...........................this is the Internet of Things. It just sounds soo good.

  • November 14th 2013.

    Now this contradicts everything the liar known as little Billy t has tried to tell everyone on this board. B
    What has courted WV management has given away 2% of the entire company to officers at ZERO via options.
    In fact the company has given the Co more than $1 million in free shares.

    So little Billy t has been lying to everyone. And not one insider will use their own money to buy shares on the open market.

    I have known him for a
    A decade and a half, and he has always been a lisr.

    Moody's On WG

    spanspur spanspur Jul 11, 2014 2:32 PM Flag

    So Glenn,

    As hillbilly t's alter ego, oh that's right, you are one and the same, I forgot, I do not think there is an investor/speculator alive with half a brain that does not understand the importance of the energy sector and all that it encompasses to the continuance of the economic come back. With the American war efforts winding down, with the massive unemployment that will occur from returning GI's, not to mention the contraction of the economic velocity................the central planners are trying to avoid a post Vietnam economy. They understand that the energy sector is where it is at, which is what pulled the domestic economy up in 1978.

    I keep reminding your buddy Billy t that I have already culled $600K from WG.
    He keeps reminding that he waited, bought some at $6.50, added, and here he is the Queen of Wall Street. Well that's great. I brought the player with me, he follows me around because since March of 2008 I have been in the top 3% of all of Wall Street with an annual compounded return north of 75%.

    Billy t's Fidelity account says he was selling WG in May, June, and July. Oh that's right..........................those are his trading shares. LMAO!

    "The company has historically struggled to generate consistent profitability and has produced very weak EBITDA margins due to the competitive nature of the construction industry, periodic execution and productivity issues, and its inability to effectively execute its growth strategy".

    And pretty much this describes Randy Harl's entire tenure while at the helm of WG. Bad acquisitions, massive write downs of assets, each and every quarter announcing a review of O&G operations (which asks the question: How can a CEO be that far removed from his day-to-day operations year-after-year-after-year?), fire selling assets to remain in business, constantly playing to the 100 year + history of the company, talking about the employees, the little red trucks, etc, etc, etc.

    If the company does not announce a massive per share profit this quarter they never will.....................
