  • "Does Pengrowth's management ever make comments as to the stocks price? Or, do we as investors sit and watch PGH decline to new 52 week lows day after day with no input from management. Management appears to be a total disappointment in handling these recent price actions."

    I will be interested if they can even bother in reply. Will post if received. Very disappointed by PGH mamagement to not say a single word with a 36% decline since the high of $7.22 on 7/22/14

    I'm with you hardmetalman1,I too have a good portion of my portfolio in good to high dividend paying equities and have been buy on dips for the past five years or so. Being in my mid-50's I look at his as building my retirment income stream for my golden years. My pricipal my go up or down on any given day, week or month but those dividends keep coming. When the dividends start to look shakey then I think about selling. Also, the tax treatment for the qualified diviends is also attractve to me...

    Sentiment: Buy

  • I have been accumulating PGH since 11/2012 at prices between $4.36 and $6.76 and now have 13K shares at and average of $5.38 all the while collecting a great monthly dividend. This stock will treat you nicely with a 7% dividend while you wait for it to move up. Buy slow on dips, enjoy the ride, your gonna love this stock in a couple of years. Also the Divy is qualified and you will have a long term cap gain when it come time to sell. Just my 2 cents.

    Sentiment: Buy

    LNCO and Dividends = Return of Capital

    Thanks for the input. I also thought I a read that dividend were expected to be taxable in 2014 but cannot find that information again as I woould like to re-read the statement. If you could provide the link that would be great. Thanks...

  • It appearass all of LNCO's dividends / distributions in 2013 were return of capital and reduces your cost basis and it appears for at least the next few years our dividends will also be return of capital. Does this mean we sharholders are not actually receiving dividends? Are we only getting a portion of our inital cost basis back and will eventually (when sold) have to pay tax on the difference between the initial cost basis and the reduced your sale reduced cost basis? If I am correct what is the point of even owning this stock.

    Even if LNCO cut the dividend in half, a 5.5% is still not bad. Stock would tank but new buyers would come back. Why does management not make any comments. I would bet a dividend cut would stablize this POS.

  • How this stock is always down everyday even when the market as a whole is up is beyond belief. This POS seems to have no bottom and management appears to be useless.

  • Does anyone think Management might come out a try to deffend the company. This stock is a complete disappointment but management appears to be even worse, totally useless.

  • #$%$...

  • Quantum Corporation Expects Fiscal Third Quarter Revenue and Earnings Results to Exceed High End of Guidance

    Company Plans to Build on Efficiency Initiatives and Product/Technology Strengths to Capitalize on Growth Opportunities While Driving Increased Profitability and Cash Flow

    SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/13/14 -- Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM) today announced preliminary results for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 ended Dec. 31, 2013. The company expects to report revenue of approximately $145 million to $146 million, which would be above the high end of the guidance range provided during its Oct. 23, 2013 earnings announcement. The higher revenue reflects particularly strong sequential improvement in sales of Scalar tape automation systems and DXi® deduplication appliances and year-over-year revenue growth of approximately 20 percent from StorNext® scale-out storage solutions. In addition, Quantum expects non-GAAP net income of $6 million to $7 million, which is better than the high end of the previously announced guidance range.

    "We're pleased with the preliminary results we've seen for the December quarter, which demonstrate the strength of our product portfolio and expertise in helping customers rethink their storage strategies to serve their evolving business needs," said Jon Gacek, president and CEO of Quantum. "Over the past year we've made good progress in expanding our solution offerings, improving our sales execution and efficiency, and reducing our cost structure. Our Q3 results reflect the benefits of the actions we've taken."

    This quarter Quantum will complete the change to a fully outsourced manufacturing model as previously announced last July, eliminating the remaining 120 positions related to this change. The company also plans to eliminate approximately 60 additional positions across various functions this quarter, reflecting reduced resource needs, better organizational efficiencies and a more focused investment strategy heading

    Is this company an MLP ???

    talldudeinsf talldudeinsf Dec 31, 2013 10:10 PM Flag

    LINE is an MLP. LNCO (Line's parent / Holding Company) is a corporation that distributes monthly and will be reported on a 1099 for tax purposes. LINCO only in a tax deferred accounts. LINE is fine in NON-TAX DEFERRED accounts but remember you will need to incorporate a K-1 into your personal tax returns.

    LNCO in your Roth or IRA account and LINE in you taxable brokerage account. Right now LNCO is the better of the two buys, it usually trades at a premium to LINE but not lately so I would take advantage (and have) situation as it will not last.

    Starboard is a well established hedge fund with good management, I would not bet againt them, they have the cash and expertise to pull off a good deal.

  • talldudeinsf talldudeinsf Oct 7, 2013 6:16 PM Flag

    Hedge Funds can buy anything they want, it is only determined by their internal bylaws. Mutual funds can do the same but are generally prohibited in purchasing equities under $5.00 by thier bylaws but this is not an absolute. FYI, something is going on here, today's volume was 10 times nornal. Only time will tell but something is up...
