How long will this stock die a slow death, bleeding every day ? Does EVERYTHING hinge on one product ? Maybe they need to make widgets .
This is old news allowing OESX to potentially sell stock to raise capital for possible mergers and other things. It was filed in Jan. and they haven't offered it or set a price on any shares that I have heard.
Orion Energy Systems, Inc. (NYSE MKT: OESX), a leading power technology enterprise, announced today that it has filed a universal shelf registration statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to allow the company to potentially offer an indeterminate principal amount and number of securities in the future with a proposed maximum aggregate offering price of up to $75,000,000.
Under the shelf registration statement, the company will have the flexibility to publicly offer and sell from time to time debt securities, common stock, preferred stock, warrants and other securities or any combination of such securities. The company may periodically offer one or more of these securities in amounts, at prices and on terms announced if and when the securities are ever offered.
The CC is @ 2PM PT (5PM ET) ,so the earnings will be between 4-5 ET. The phone number and e-mail somebody was asking about is listed on the web site under investors. Don't forget to pick up a bottle of "Jack" on the way home.
I missed that news until after the market closed but somebody was selling after 1900hrs for $6 so I grabbed them then this morning the ask was up to 6.40
Anything 6 or under is a great buy for this stock which was heading for 7 a few weeks ago.
While I was doing some research in my Zacks account I ran into their date (Zacks), for RVLT earnings, 3/21/14
Don't know if that's it but that's what Zacks has it listed as.
How about that Bud Puppy Love commerical, 45 million hits in 2 weeks on u-tube ! I have a 2 year old yellow lab (and a 2 year old black lab) and we watch it every nite.
We do look at things in a different way. You look at company operations, products and personal. I look at products and the numbers I could care less how they get there. Last year OESX had 3 upside earnings surprises 200%,200% and 50% one losing quarter. RVLT had only one profitable quarter in 4 years. Profit margin and operational margin for RVLT (-74 and-24) for OESX 3% and 4%. Cash on hand RVLT 5.7M for OESX19.3M. Operating cash flow RVLT (-7.4) for OESX 18.1M RVLT Book Value 0.21 for OESX BV $3.98 . Return on assets RVLT (-10), OESX 2.5% RVLT has no PE or PEG because they never have a profit. OESX PE is 31 and PEG 2.38
I could go on and on why OESX is the better choice to me anyway but they are not even close to BK. I think both companies will "get there" just that I think OESX will do it faster. The hit on the PPS was because of the lower quidance and the stock offering which they may use at anytime to buy a company they feel they need. Hey I could be wrong and you may be right ,it will be fun to find out !. Good Luck !
Why did we stop going up I see nothing but buy signals---this stock should be up at least 25 % today!!!!
If you are looking for 25% you need a Biotech Stock ! Keep in mind those numbers they are throwing out comparing last year to this year were before the merger. They really are overstated. In addition they made a few "General Statements" that may or may not be FACTS but like a pep rally, it's what you want to hear. Like the Navy contract the deal its not as big as you may think. Still it appears they are headed in the right direction and about to be profitable and that is a good sign. This whole process with new uptodate lighting is going to take time for all companies in this field.
I have some real doubts about OESX.
As I was researching the "Old" OESX an a light went off , I could understand why you felt that way. It's not the same company that it was when they sold Solar products. They stop doing the things that didn't work and are doing more of the things that work. I lost HALF the money I paid for with RVLT stock, so if I look at the Big Picture , to me, OESX has done it better and faster with better mgmt. Even with the hit on OESX it more than made up for my loss in RVLT and that hit is short term. I think they both will have growing pains but in the end they will do well. I guess we will have to wait and see. Good Luck !
How's that Orion doing?
It's now my number 1 holding. I have more of Orion than any other stock. They finished their moving and merger which was a distraction but they still beat earnings by 50% and revenue grew by 42%. They are almost out of the "Solar business" which was a drag on them but they still have some contracts to finish and then their done. They are going heavy in LED's and filed with the SEC for a "possible offering to raise capital for future mergers. The PPS took a hit because of lower guidance and the offering but the cash flow is good and they are making positive profits. Zacks and most analysts give them a hold. Bottom line they are doing better than RVTL at this point but we will see when the earnings for RVTL come out. I own them both but I only had couple hundred shares of RVTL just to keep an eye on them but I put another order in after the news and I was haapy with the reaction of the PPS. Good Luck !
Like I said before, this stock is news driven and mgmt wasn't doing its job by keeping investors up to date, leaving them to think of the worst.
HAS missed earnings by 0.10 and a slight miss on revenue, down in premarket. The fact that both MAT and HAS missed their numbers may be a good thing for the Frog. If Frog beats their numbers MAT or HASBRO may come calling and we could have a bidding war between them. The Frog has to beat their numbers first.
Some of you guys are way to serious ! Lighten up, relax. Nice to see we have a large number of Liberals, Attack, Attack , Attack ! Don't debate just Attack! Hey I own the stock ( I allow myself one Biotech only) and I'am very happy with it. Love to stir the pot once in awhile, it brings out the best in some people.Have a GREAT DAY !
J.C has been updated for their rating which are based on independent researchers.
2 Strong buys
2 Strong sells
Going to be real interesting what happens this week. The first reaction is many times not the final results depending on what games are played. About the only thing you can count on is they will beat earnings but revenue and guidance can be anything. Most companies that are having trouble are beating earnings but short on revenue and lower guidance going forward.
Just for fun, so as not to be a "monday morning quarterback", I think Monday the market, not LF, will have a bad day so I loaded up with some dry powder for some bottom fishing. That Jobs Report was terrible AGAIN and even if investors got caught up in the buying they had the weekend to think about it and will try to take profits from 2 strong up days in a row on Monday which is usually a bad day anyway. I could be wrong, it wouldn't be the first time. Super Good Luck to the Longs this week !
"But I can't seem to put faith in management yet. While the company earlier expected "a continued acceleration in revenue and profitability as the year progresses", the third quarter proved otherwise. Revolution's losses have nearly doubled to $13.5 million over the first nine months.
I'm not too sure how management will achieve its ambitious target of 35% gross margin next year, given the high costs that the company is grappling with."
Not my words but I agree with them. Earnings are due out NOW but there are no earnings or news of when there will be an earnings release and that again is poor mgmt with no regard to shareholders. In fact there is no news at all for over a month, again mgmt or a red flag that something is a problem. Last quarter was the result of increasing losses over the last 9 months and untill they can show that they can turn a profit RVLT is not going anywhere. This stock only moves on "news" and there is none so untill we get positive news or a good earnings report RVLT isn't going anywhere.
Really ? One to answer the phones, one to make the coffee, one to deliver the mail and 6 on the BOD.
Who does the R and D?
What's funny is the "Hot drug" in the pipeline is due out in 2016. As someone pointed out, what drives this stock is "pump and dump"!
Do you have any idea where John Barbour came from before LF? or what state the company was in before he took over?
Didn't he come from Toys R Us ? I have no problem with LF mgmt. but it would be nice if they took some of that cash to buy up some cheap shares like Cook did for Apple when their shares tanked.
First you guys know I have always been pro LF but there is some information that you should know about. This morning Zacks lowered their rating on the Frog to a #4 sell from a #3 hold. Their report was just updated showing a target price of $8.80 with a long term "neutral" bias. The industry rank for LF is 239/265 which is a poor rank. I checked TD analyst ranking and the only one that was a new update was Market Edge on 2/7/14 and they rated LF an "avoid" which is their lowest rating. You and I don't have to agree with any of this but we should be aware of it. Good Luck Longs !
Zacks is a joke. If you're going to pay money for a stock touting service, put your money into one that is not entirely computer driven
Zacks is a research firm, they do not hold, sell, "TOUT", or except any funds from any stock. Their only agenda is to service information for the people that paid for their service. They are not always right but they will refund your money if you lose money on their recommendations. Zacks is not "entirely computer driven. They have a learning center that shows you everything they do and how they do it to a point.
They charge pennies ($200/yr), for information that you can't get for free. It's a good tool for you're tool box.
For a lousy 0.90 per trading day it's a no brainer to me. It helps me make OR save thousands of dollars. If you don't like it, don't buy it, but I bet after you have it you will never give it up. Free services are working for themselves not you. How do you think they support themselves.
If it drops below that I expect someone to try a hostile takeover.
When the PPS drops below fair value and a company has cash on hand it becomes attractive for a takeover. A "hostile takeover" is when the company that may be acquired does not want to be acquired and refuses to open their books leaving the acquiring company to guess and go directly to the shareholders with an offer to gain controlling interest. OESX would then look for a "White Knight" to be taken over by somebody with better terms, usually for the mgmt. They would open the books to the "White Knight".
I'am sure you know all this, I just wrote it for those that don't understand the process. Now my question is why do you think there would be a hostile takeover if the PPS drops lower than $5 ? Thanks
