  • OESX has a number of downgrades, ZACKS rates it a strong sell "5 , or there has to be a reason THE STOCK JUMPS 0.95 OR MORE THAN 20% in interday trading ! No news, no SEC filing, nothing that the public is aware of. Something is happening behind close doors. Volume for the day was also up. I may add today just on a gut feeling, Stocks don't go up 20% for no reason. Good Luck !

    Post from Tues 0729hrs....

    Because I'am not that good but I'am looking for a 20% gain in the PPS over the next 3 days. If you buy today I still think you have 2 up days coming. Good Luck!

    Correction, Make that 20% gain in TWO DAYS ! Sorry, nobody is perfect ! Still have one upday coming. Good Luck!

    FROM Yesterday's post:

    If you think that it is better not to buy today because EJ will be cheaper tomorrow, guess again ! When you beat earnings, revenue and guidance BIG TIME it usually takes 3 days to settle down to the TRUE VALUE of the stock that reflects where it's going in the next quarter and year.

    The E.R. was not just "A BEAT" , they KILLED the estimates. Oh there will be some backfill days but for every step down there will be 2 steps up. It will take awhile for this stock to cool down. Go ahead, " short" or try to convince others you're shorting. Have A BALL ! I get no joy from anybody losing money but this is not a stock I would short unless we see panic buying and so far EJ has a long way to go before it's overvalued.

    It also could mean they're synchronizing their FY with their peak selling season, which makes sense.

    That's the way I look at it and it gives more time for the dust to settle.

  • Looks like they had problems selling the stock. That was a really dumb move on mgmt. part with the timing of the offering, the company lost and the current stockholders really lost but mgmt. has no debt because the stockholders paid for it. I will remember this as I look for a chance to unload with the least damage.

    You could get lucky and catch "stop loss orders" being trigger but that only last seconds and if you not watching it when it happens you lose. It's not over ! A lot of "shorts" need to do damage control which may mean run the PPS up to overvalue and then short again. I'am talking about the large hedge funds, they can run the stock down or if overwhelmed join in and run the PPS up to overvalue so they can short again. The small time investors, both short and longs, have no resources to control the PPS.

    Market is getting hammered and SMT is up over 6%

    Shorts had their chance for max gains but that time has passed !

    Because I'am not that good but I'am looking for a 20% gain in the PPS over the next 3 days. The reason I think that is because EJ has been hammered for the last month and is due a bounce from being way undervalued. If you buy today I still think you have 2 up days coming. Good Luck!

    EJ HITS a HOMERUN all the way around ! Should be a great day for EJ but it is a Chinese stock so you never know. Only 402 premarket shares traded at 0655 so we need volume to set the price.

    Look at the bright side, the MOST important thing today is the drop off in volume as the day went on. That is an important sign, it means all the people that want out are out and the falling knife has stopped falling! If you are thinking of buying the base may have formed. If the shorts feel the base has formed the last half hour of trading today could be an uptick.
    This is not a new company with no direction. This is a company that knows where it wants to go and with the new mgmt. there will be a strong push to make things happen. All the bad things have been written off the last quarter and they are hiring a lot of new people on their web site.
    As bad as things look now I see a lot of good things for the future. Their not just going to be sitting on their hands!

    2,500,000 shares of its common stock, for gross proceeds of $26,625,000. The offering is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close on or about May 19, 2014.

    No way of telling it the 2.5M shares were sold since those shares don't show up in the volume since they are not trades. Many times after the offering the PPS will fall since there is no longer an effort to keep the PPS up. Usually that is only a short term thing.

    Zacks upgraded SMT to a BUY, Jaywalk last update was 5/19 and they have SMT as a hold. We have a lot of new people that are planning the future of SMT that may have set the bar a little low so they can exceed the goals of the investors. If you go thur all the numbers on they web site, their earnings and revenues are changing from different world markets and a change in product lines. With new blood driving the growth of SMT this could be a great stock but it will take time and at the current PPS there could be a take over.

  • The (.05) the company reports was "adjusted" earnings but Zacks list it as a "miss" from the expected (.06) of 50%. That could also explain part of the 37% haircut. Anyway they moved to upgrade the stock to a BUY as of today. It was a hold on Friday.

  • Ain't that a kick in the pants !
    That just proves the selling was WAY OVERDONE ! We may get some short covering Monday.

    I don't see any warrant for this to drop 35% on the earnings they had and Almost All before the Bell

    There are a number of reasons for todays reaction. The major change in MGMT. is a good thing long term but an upsetting thing for the short term. On the negative side the Liabilities are greater than the assets which is a serious bad sign. In addition the book value is negative. On the good side sign the new mgmt. is going on offense with 8 new jobs postings in the last 2 weeks. They also are going after new broad members to change, improve, their business plan ! The new jobs are listed on their web site.
    Things ARE HAPPENING at SMT and this could be the bottom floor but it will take time for the results.
    Another possible action is a buyout with a company like Leap Frog that needs a more rounded kids product line so they are not a one trick pony. They have a world class marketing network so they could cut down on that cost AND THEY HAVE CASH !

    Your a real JERK . Since your OUT we don't need to hear from you again !

  • superbowl6wins by superbowl6wins May 16, 2014 9:40 AM Flag

    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 !

  • We need housing numbers to move this market and the numbers came in GREAT. We could use a good day for a change. Good Luck !

  • 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.
