Your a real JERK . Since your OUT we don't need to hear from you again !
If THINGS WERE THAT BAD, the company should have issued a warning not hide the truth from the investors. When a stock loses a third of its value somebody was not doing their job !
I'am a member of ZACKS which is a great service but in this case I don't agree with them. My issue is the mgmt. and their "Stock offering" that couldn't come at a worst time to hurt both the company and the shareholders and I consider is a bad way to raise money on the back of the shareholders. Once this offering is over the PPS may go either way for awhile but long term the mgmt. does know how to make money. Seems to me it's a little late to be selling now a company that has had a super great 1 year chart and tract record. They sell a product that sooner or later people must buy. I'am not buying at these low prices just now but I will not sell either. Good Luck!

Zacks Rates ABTL as a 4 (Sell)
Seems they don't have their act together as of today .
That was my old post Apr 3,
That was over a month and a half ago when the PPS was 13.80 so don't blame Zacks for the last 2 bucks you lost.
Zacks is not always right BUT THEY ARE RIGHT MORE TIMES THAN WRONG! They do not hold stock, sell stock, or PROMOTE ANY STOCK. It cost 200 bucks a year I would pay 4X that for their information. !t Works for me. I still have ABTL on "Watch". Good Luck and I do think ABTL will do well Long Term.
OESX Orion Energy price target lowered to $6 from $8 at Roth Capital
Roth Capital cut its price target on Orion after the company reported results that the firm views as disappointing. However, the firm continues to expect the company to benefit from demand for high efficiency lighting, and it keeps a Buy rating on the shares.
I think Roth Capital got it right keeping a "BUY" rating on OESX as they work thur a number of changes in product lines and personnel due to mergers and cost cutting. I think this could be a 12 dollar stock by the end of the year. Good Luck !
DXYN The Dixie Group reinstated with a Strong Buy at Raymond James
May 12, 2014
06:32 EDT DXYN The Dixie Group files to sell 2.5M shares of common stock
Wells Fargo Securities and Raymond James are joint book-running managers for the offering.
Sure Raymond James gives DXYN a "STRONG BUY", their the ones trying to sell the "OFFERING" and take your money for their profits.. At the same time ZACKS downgrades DXYN to the LOWEST RATING, STRONG SELL !. Lets see, who do we believe, an independent research firm, or the firm trying to sell B S and take your money. CROOKS!
That stock offering was a big mistake for both , the shareholders and DXYN. MGMT needs to buy back their stock and put it in the bank raising the PPS, then sell when they need it without any dilution to the shareholders or borrow the cash that's needed but don't just steal value from the shareholders while insiders's friends can make money knowing the offering was coming. The field is not level. The small investor always gets screwed ! From $18 to $11 in little more than a month and mgmt. piles on with an offering ! Not very smart. If you are going to have an offering you do it at the high not the low that would help ease the pain for the shareholder and get the company the most money. I'am done !
Strange trading day for VTNR and a very bright future ahead with revenues estimated to double and earnings to triple. Makes you wonder if someone was just buying up cheap shares before an upgrade or were traders really that disappointed in the ER.
Anyway, I would not be out of this stock with the current PE, PEG, Cash on hand, and next quarter estimates.
Good Luck Longs !
I'am betting we will see green tomorrow!
It may not be as bad as you think. You can throw out the after and premarket action and the first hour of day trading. The results are not black and white . You can't mix apples and oranges with the product mix changing and the mergers mixed in. Lets see what happens when the big boys start trading... More
Not bragging, not that good, just been around the block a few times in my 68 years.
Earnings estimates mean more than the actual earnings? Say what??
That's what I'am saying ! It's the ESTIMATES for earnings revenue and guidance that count on earnings file date. It's been that way in my 50 years of investing. Come in below or just meet estimates and the PPS will fall for the short term at least.
Who said anything about buying? Holding long term is what works for 98% of investors. There are a lot of games being played by funds that have the means to play them. Don't learn the hard way but if you do you will remember those lessons and that is a good thing.
Despite a 42% jump in revenues, earnings are LOWER than last year.
It's not that cut and dry. Yes earnings mean something but earnings estimates mean more. Many stocks have no earnings at all but their PPS can soar if they beat the estimates. Investments the company may make also takes away from earnings along with many other reasons the earnings may vary not all of them bad. Also don't fall into the trap of selling because the PPS takes a hit. Many times that drop in PPS is planned out to buy up cheap shares followed by an upgrade. Yesterday DXYN was down over 2 bucks, today it was upgraded and in the green. Funny how those hedge funds work.

I agree it doesn't look that good but it may be better than it appears when you get down into the weeds with the numbers.
It's rare when OESX doesn't beat earnings and last year they never missed estimates. The Book Value is almost 4 bucks now and the P/S is great at 1, double the CASH ON HAND THAN DEBT, operating cash flow and leverage are both positive and in the millions. The stock has been beaten down almost 20% in the last 5 days so the bar is very low. Just my gut feeling but I think the earnings will surprise to the upside. Good Luck!
Look at it this way, at $4.50 what's the risk vs the reward. Even IF the PPS goes down it won't stay down very long because this LED company turns a PROFIT this year for sure.
"ROBERT SHAW"! I remember him! (1964); the relentless panzer officer Colonel Hessler in Battle of the Bulge (1965); Isn't he dead? He was up against Henry Fonda in the race to the tank fuel dump. Great actor, great movie. My favorite all time movie was "The final Countdown" but I'am a time travel nut anyway.
Speaking of time travel I'am sure today will be long forgotten and DXYN will hit new highs in the future. I know this because I checked the stocks listed in the newspaper dated Jan. 11, 2045 !
Need a little humor when your down 14% after also being down Friday as the insiders friends knew what was coming today. The little guy always loses.
Definition of 'Price/Earnings To Growth - PEG Ratio'
A stock's price-to-earnings ratio divided by the growth rate of its earnings for a specified time period. The price/earnings to growth (PEG) ratio is used to determine a stock's value while taking the company's earnings growth into account, and is considered to provide a more complete picture than the P/E ratio. While a high P/E ratio may make a stock look like a good buy, factoring in the company's growth rate to get the stock's PEG ratio can tell a different story. The lower the PEG ratio, the more the stock may be undervalued given its earnings performance.
With the PPS being cut more than a half in less than 1 month along with it having the great future for its products and less debt than cash on hand HIMX is a great value as a buyout company that's on the cheap !
Just when things look the worst we could see a big positive surprise soon and it will be too late to get in if your not already long. Good Luck!
Any company with a PEG less than 1 but over zero is a great value. Check your other holdings out. I stopped using PE a long time ago. A low PE without growth means very little but a high PE with very high growth may be OK.
For a stock that has a PE of 11 and a PEG of 0.36 which is EXCELLENT I think the selling is way overdone.
Too many good things point to a great future we can look forward too and I think a lot of people are beginning to notice that now. Good Luck Longs !
My post BEFORE the open. Looks I I got one RIGHT !
May Not Be That BAD ...........
Bottom line is what the PPS is at the closing not at the open. Premarket means very little and the first hour after the open is full of emotional investors.
