RVLT is consistantly improving year after year. i expect to see a new contract or two before earning. maybe an acquisition to be during earnings. Get in know before its to late!
Now that is funny,"RVLT is consistently IMPROVING year after year. I guess that's why I sold in the 5's after buying in the 8's and now it's a buck, SOME IMPROVEMENT. If they improve much more they will be BK !.
Don't mind me I always check back every few months on stocks I use to own to see if there are any surprises.
Let me tell you the story about RVLT. in the last 20 or MORE QUARTERS they always have a "NET LOSS" except for one time that a Tax Write-off save them. Revenues, no problem, that is all they talk about but they never make any money. Mergers , no problem, they always have Mergers and Revenue to always go along with the NET LOSS. One more thing, they always tell you next quarter is going to be the quarter with no NET LOSS ! They always lie. The sooner you connect the dots on what they are doing the better off you will be. There is ALWAYS money for their BONUSES and PERKS but none left for you.
Show us the link that says Rite Aid stated the negative growth.
Look under Analyst Estimates, at the bottom of the screen, Growth Estimates, CURRENT (-25%), NEXT Q (-53.8), THIS YEAR (-38.10).
Current Qtr. -25.00% 34.80% 25.60% 7.20%
Next Qtr. -53.80% 52.70% 23.60% 10.50%
This Year -38.10% 12.30% 14.10% 1.50%
Next Year 38.50% 18.90% 12.00% 12.80%
Hey one year ago May 2 the PPS was $7.87 and that means you only loss about 20 pennies today so your money has been safe. Think of the quarter loss as a handling charge to protect your money.
Hey the signs have all been there and they already stated the future was going to be negative growth next quarter by 53% and it's happening . Its even posted on Yahoo under growth.
Who are the Stillers !
Who are da Stillers ? da STILLERS are da ONLY FOOTBALL TEAM TO WIN 6 SIX SUPERBOWLS. I guess yinz are not from Pittsbugh. I'll be more than happy to Translate fer yinz so yinz can understand us better as soon as I can git dahntahn to pickup sumpin!
3% increase is not a gain and is not even break even. 15-30% are real gains. Everything goes up 3% in a year, the cost of the product, shipping, taxes, your salary , the interest on RAD BILLIONS of DOLLARS in LOANS, 3% MEANS NOTHING ! If this company can't increase earnings and revenue by 10 to 20% their dead !
I can't believe some MB posters think 3% is a big deal over a year's time and they think it's time to PARTY ! At 3% you're losing money. There's 2 two things I expect in a years time, one to double my money, and 2 the Stillers win the Super Bowl !
They've been delivering great results all year, best reports out there no question about it.
REALLY ! Is that why 30 days ago March 30, the PPS was $8.57 and today April 30 the PPS is Up.....MAKE THAT DOWN $7.91
DO you like losing money ? You're the only one that thinks there the "BEST REPORTS OUT THERE" I guess everybody else is wrong and you're the only one right. You're REALLY going to enjoy the 53% loss for next quarter which is posted here on the Yahoo projections for growth, check it out.
Why is this stock sitting at a PE of 3.9??? Is it under financial stress
You must be on the wrong MB ! RAD PE listed on ZACKS is 37.52 which is terrible. You can buy a stock with a high PE IF HIGH GROWTH comes with it and RAD has low or no growth (1% to 3% is not growth, 20-30% is growth). The PEG is 2.89 which is a true picture of real PE with growth factored in is also terrible, needs to be under 1 and above 0.
Yes the stock will be under financial stress by the end of this year with lower earnings and lower earnings estimates they have already given.
when RAD is making profits and the price is north of 8 bucks
On June 4 last year the PPS was $8.50 today the close is $8.13 so you lose (-0.37) cents in almost a year. 90 days ago the estimated earnings was downgraded to .09 then in 60 days to .08 then in 30 days to .7 then the big downgrade to .03 which will be less than the same quarter last year IF THEY CAN EVEN MAKE THAT !
So what if you bought RAD in 2013 guess what I did too but that ship as sailed, changes were made ,new mgmt. the cancer was cut away and you can't continue to cut into the healthy meat that's left.
This stock will continue to see more RED than GREEN until is merged with a stronger company.
RAD has many reasons to drop and few to HOLD and no reasons to go up.
QRVO will soon be ramping up as the PPS seeks fair value going into earnings. Everything points to a great report with high estimates from analysts and 3 earnings revisions upward. PEG is under 1 and the cash flow is great. Great margins and a lot of institutional buying. The time to play games with the PPS are over. Good Luck Longs !
You make it look like Jefferies loves RAD, he doesn't, he likes CVS and second Walgreen , you didn't print THE REST OF THE STORY.......
Jefferies has a Hold rating on Rite Aid and a $9 target for the stock
"Jefferies has a Hold rating on Rite Aid and a $9 target for the stock"
Rad is a good long term investment with good management, period,,,
And I think RED is the best car color but it doesn't make any difference what you and I think.
You say "in the face of analysts projecting higher PPS". That isn't true at all. ZACKS rates RAD a HOLD #3. TD Ameritrade has 2 Buys, 2Sells, and 4 Holds. With Jaywalk Consenses shows 3 Buys , 2 Sells and 6 Holds. I would agree RAD is rated overall a Hold but I think it is a SELL.
RAD is the weak link of the 3 drug stores and it should be the first to go and longs may make money on that but the future of RAD can only go down hill with all of these estimated downward earnings revisions.
Bottom line I think there are far better stocks to tie your money up in but this one is interesting to follow for me to see if I read it right. Good Luck Anyway.
The stock soars on much lower estimate earnings that they continued to lower until they could beat them my ONE PENNY. The CURRENT earnings estimates have already been lowered 5 times that's how good things are going. As I said before with Oil you never know what the PPS will do after bad earnings, and those were BAD EARNINGS.
Things should settle down today , might be a buying opp, might have a lot of people wishing they would have sold Friday at the high.
Zack never did like Basic, so what else is new
ZACKS doesn't like or dislike any stock. They don't Sell, Buy,Hold or PROMOTE ANY STOCK. They are only paid by investors like me for the purpose of serving MY BEST INTEREST. They could care less if you buy or sell any stock their not paid by the stock. It's up to you to act on the information.
It's funny how on these M.B. the number of people that don't agree with an issue either attack the messager or the source instead of debating the ISSUE . That is a sign of weakness.
EARNINGS couldn't be much worst. Industry rank 218/265.
It wasn't so bad that they loss money since a lot of Oil stocks are doing that, it was the amount of losses and the number of down earnings revisions, 4, that they had.
There are a lot of better Oil stocks, CPE , Zacks ranks BUY #2, to choose from. Good Luck !
SAY WHAT ! Numbers look good ? You must be short. I sold this about 2 days ago to meet a "call" and the fact that ZACKS had a Sell on it and I had to sell something I'am glad it was BAS. Oil can fool you. I had 2 Oil stocks that miss earnings and the PPS went up the next day so I think ANYTHING goes tomorrow and I wouldn't be surprised !
Good Post !
Looking at SPCB advancement from another point of view, around March 19, the volume changed from a 5 figure daily volume to a 6 figure volume and it has remained that way to this day. We have much more interest and people following the stock and the people that have already been holding the stock are buying more on any pull-backs. Good Luck Longs !
