    so in summary...

    you seemed to have only returned to boast, gloat, and pound your chest that you had the vision to sell this stock and avoid further loss. While rubbing others noses in the fact that we held on through this train wreck. Well to that I say congratulations but you also need to grow up! Less

    Sorry you are taking it that way, no way do I mean any respect to anybody and I 'am not a genius, I loss money from the high and as you know most of those oldtimers are gone just like me. I ALWAYS continue to track stocks that I have sold just in case there is a reason to get back in.. As for growing up you sound like my 95 mom when I lay a 70 ft patch of rubber or do a wheelie up the road on one of the motorcycles. I'am a 70 year old with the brain of an 18 year old and I hope I NEVER growup ! But I have learned a lot thur the years and I'am just passing it along for others if they chose to read it. When I'am wrong I say so and I always tell both sides because to me the MOST IMPORTANT is the negative which many people don't want to hear it, the good investors do. Good Luck! Again I'am sorry you took it the wrong way.

    Only down a couple of grand but made that up and then some in oil the last 2 days.

    I also had a great day yesterday and a great 2 wks because of Oil stocks I posted here the last 2 weeks and that is exactly the point. You buy great stocks, with no emotion, when they are down, and nobody wants them. SPCB is a great stock that will go to $20 maybe this year.
    There is a "short article on seeking alpha" out there today (got it from ZACKS), that makes little sense and only tells the negatives with none of the positives but read it anyway it's always best to know both sides . Good Luck !

    LF's history since 2008

    With the recent write downs and class action lawsuits I see no way Hasbro or Mattel step in for any reason to buy LF out.

    I Agree. We are both on the same page ! Those Lawsuits are serious. I have received checks at least 10 times on settled lawsuits and I am in the process now on a company settlement, Silvercorp Metals Inc. I have never seen so many law firms go after a company like LF they really must feel they have a case. Either way it will cost LF money to defend itself and if they settle they will lose again.
    They could come back in better shape for sure. Sometimes all they need is a good kick in the a.....

    Michael Milken controls the super voting shares,

    I stand corrected then. I know he did in the past and I think his wife or some other relative controlled a large number of shares but I didn't know that was still the case.

    For the newer investors, you can look at the PE but make sure to check out the PEG .

    A PEG ratio is the: P/E Ratio divided by the Growth Rate

    Conventional wisdom says a value of 1 or less is considered good (at par or undervalued to its growth rate), while a value of greater than 1, in general, is not as good (overvalued to its growth rate).

    Many believe the PEG ratio tells a more complete story than just the P/E ratio. (The S&P at the time of this writing had a PEG ratio of 1.93.)

    Comparison

    Let's take a look at both of these in action.

    For example: a company with a P/E Ratio of 25 and a Growth Rate of 20% would have a PEG ratio of 1.25 (25 / 20= 1.25).

    While a company with a P/E Ratio of 40 and a Growth Rate of 50% would have a PEG Ratio of 0.80 (40 / 50= 0.80).

    Traditionally, investors would look at the stock with the lower P/E ratio and deem it a bargain (undervalued). But looking at it closer, you can see it doesn't have the growth rate to justify its P/E.

    The stock with the P/E of 40, however, is actually the better bargain since its PEG ratio is lower (0.80) and is trading at a discount to its growth rate.

    In other words, the lower the PEG ratio, the better the value. That's because the investor would be paying less for each unit of earnings growth.

    So which one is better?

    They both have their usefulness. I do like how the PEG positions the P/E ratio in relation to its growth rate to put everything into perspective.

    I learned a long time ago to look for stocks with a PEG under 1 but greater than 0 .

    . Buyout rumors been around this company for like almost 10 years now and nothing ever happens.

    You are right, there was always talk of a buyout but this time it's a lot different because the PPS is at all time low below Book Value, which is around 5 bucks and is a good reference for a Buy out figure, and their is a lot of cash to be gain by the buyer. Even a HOSTILE BUYER could offer 5 bucks a share on the open market and that should generate more than what's needed to take control of LF. I would think most stockholders would take that with all that's happening after a $1.77 loss for the 4Q. When that loss is filed with the SEC the PPS will go down even more at least short term. It is not baked in and will be a shock !
    "•Net loss per basic and diluted share will be approximately $1.77, which includes approximately $0.28 per share related to goodwill impairment and approximately $1.24 per share related to deferred tax asset valuation allowance. This compares to prior guidance of net income per diluted share to be in the range of $0.16 to $0.28"

    Final question: who are the idiots on the board

    These lawsuits mean nothing. If they mean nothing why all the law firms jumping at the chance FOR NOTHING !
    And to the other poster, LF is not APPLE where lawsuits are a VERY SMALL % of their wealth. In fact, APPLE has a fleet of Lawyers ON THE PAYROLL.

    this company is not going broke they have way to much money and no debt,

    That was before the 12 Law Suits. The lawyers are jumping at the bit to make sure they get a huge part of that money along with the Courts and any Taxes. Nobody is going to buy them until the legal issues are settled and what will be left ? They can't go into BK for protection until the money is gone and the liabilities are greater than the assets.They need new products, something that would "WOW" the kids at school, a must have item because their friend has one.

  • superbowl6wins by superbowl6wins Jan 26, 2015 1:14 PM Flag

    I'am an old time LF stock holder from 2011, 2012, and sold out at the end of 2013 when I saw that the niche was gone and the "Kids Tablet" was a one trick pony that had its run and it was going to go the way of the PET ROCK and the CABBAGE PATCH KIDS. Back in the "DAY" LF could not supply enough product to meet the demand. LF didn't produce the inventory to meet the demand and the Retailors didn't expect the demand for the product so they were caught short of inventory. The CEO was a genius and on every business news channel. Talk of a BUYOUT was everyday because MAT and HAS could not supply a Kids Tablet. In 2012 talk turn to competitors coming to market to knock LF off the top spot so LF issued a statement that the TV ADS on their products in the Fall will increase with a much increased budget. That lasted 3 weeks when again they sold out of product so why run any ads when they had nothing to sell. Scammers were buying product to sell of Craigs list for a profit. Amazon had min. 3 LF products in the top ten and 44 out of 100 in the KIDS ELECTRONICS DEPT. To be honest the stock was never the price it should have been. I soldout at $8 and was not a happy camper I think the top was $13.
    Unless they come up with a great new product all the Kids that wanted a LF Tablets already have them or one of the many cheap competitors. I'am sorry to say this stock is done for now.

    O.T. Oil Update

    superbowl6wins superbowl6wins Jan 25, 2015 11:55 PM Flag

    Agree. I would like to get some money back from SPCB so I can put more money into oil .
    And then you said in another post,
    " I don't need the money today so I am looking for a miracle from this terrible stock and a bounce."

    The fact is you really believe in SPCB or you would be long gone when the stock spiked to 9.25 ! You just feel a need to blame somebody else, (just like Obama), but deep down you know this is a good stock and you won't lose money long term so you won't sell it. I think you are the one that's funny, anyone can see right thur you. You really don't know what you want and that's OK I have no problem with your post's. You don't change my plans one bit. Good Luck !

    You want people to buy CVEO ! You're one h.e.l.l. of a stock picker, what a piece of #$%$.
    At less give them some "good" Oil stocks that go up even on a down day !

    On Jan 19 I posted 7 Oil stocks. Here are the changes in those stocks after 4 days of trading that included 3 days which Oil was DOWN and 1 day, Wed, when Oil was UP.

    Close Jan 16 - Close Jan 23

    LPI $9.01 - $9.28 = 0.27 2.9%
    EGY $5.21 - $5.70 = 0.49 9.4%
    AREX $5.99 - $6.41 = 0.47 7%
    EPE $9.26 - $9.41 = 0.15 1.6%
    NOG $6.38 - $6.27 = (0.11) (1.7%)
    SN $9.88 - $10.27 = 0.39 3.9%
    CPE $5.37 - $5.65 = 0.28 5.2%

    One stock out of the 7 went down.
    Oil to me are like Kitchen and Bathroom stocks, products which you have to buy no matter what the economy is doing. Past history of Oil is it always cycles. The higher the price the more is produced driving the supply up which causes the price to go down like it is now, the lower the production will drive the price up. Most analysts think we will see $70 - $80 Oil over a years time. Even if it does go down more it will just put more pressure on fewer companies to produce and the price will go up. As of today there is really no other replacement for oil that can match it price wise.
    Bottom line these stocks continue to hold there own or go up even with more down days in Oil over the last month. If Oil takes a BIG drop down I'am sure they will take a hit too but the guidance is up long term. I not saying bet the "Farm" on oil but you might want to consider dipping your toe in the water, er oil, after some DD. Good Luck !

    Zacks is not bullish on SWHC. I have an account with ZACKS it's a #5 for some reason. It was a #4 then after the news of increase guidance this week it went to #3 then on Friday to #5 strong sell. All this week.

    After 5 Press releases in Dec. and 9 in NOV. there has been not a peep from RVLT in all of Jan and the month is almost over and so is the company. 15 cents away from under a buck and delisting after 30 days. Nobody is buying what RVLT is selling that will give them a NET PROFIT. Oh they are more than willing to give it away for a Net Loss and SPIN WHAT GREAT REVENUES they got and the pps shoots up for a moment until investor figure it out they have been had.
