Yesterday there was a huge dump of over 200,000 shares in the first 5 minutes.. today it's quiet. I think we've seen a bottom. I could be wrong, but I think the dried up volume means we can go up to a more reasonable valuation, maybe $4.50 for a start.
"I thought they'd throw in another press release"
You wanted them to make up a press release? I think we're getting closer to a market crash, I'm seeing hints every day about the current market participants.
Thank you! I will listen to the presentation. Only bought a starter position in this stock at $10.5, then it exploded... Haven't had time to do more research.
icar said - This should make the 2014 numbers move UP nicely above $300M and 2015 to the $400+M range.
icar said - All this and lots of other analysis, tells me that Hill will have a mid point of at least $300+Million and EPS of $.62 for full year 2014 - all this is very conservative.
In the Stifel presentation on Feb 27th, Maxwell's CEO said that China would buy 60,000 new buses between 2014-15. Maxwell's CEO also said that Maxwell currently gets $8,000-10,000 per bus. That would be a minimum of $480Million of additional revenue over the next two years.
Question is - Do Maxwell Ultra-caps end up in every bus or are there other vendors that will share in this roll-out of 60,000 buses? Does anyone know?
Icar - You were 100% sure that the mid-point of 2014 guidance would be $300million. All of your supposed IT knowledge and you still were completely wrong about this years prospects. Your opinion is now worthless, you should stop posting.
FYI - I'm an IT professional with 20 years of experience. Guess what? That experience does not tell me what HILL's revenue and earnings will be next year.
I don't really have a problem with Zacks, I did a trial of their service a few years ago, I know a few of their programs have excellent track records.
I think your response to me explains the difference between my investment approach and yours. GTAT has a new contract with Apple, they are going to make sapphire screens for Apple products. Sapphire is the second strongest material on Earth behind diamonds. GTAT has announced that their revenue will go from $300M last year to $700M, $1.2B and then $1.5B over the next three years on the back of the Apple contract. They have also said their earnings will be greater than $1.5 EPS in 2016. SOOOO, Zacks is useless for a stock like this. Looking in the rear view mirror doesn't show the true picture.
Note - I'm not recommending that someone buy GTAT now, I bought at $10 or so, now it's over $17, it's not quite the bargain it was a couple of weeks ago.
I agree about PEG, but really you are considering P/E when using PEG. As a simplistic example - I always try to find stocks that are growing EPS by at least 20%, then a project what I think the EPS will be next year, then I slap a 20 P/E on the stock to get a price target. That really IS using PEG.
Anyway, good luck. Every night I review each stock that has gone up by more than 10%. If my research tells me the stock is cheap then I buy it. Often times I will end up picking stocks that get a Zacks rank of #1 because the stocks that go up 10% normally have just beat estimates and hence end up having analysts raise future estimates...
Prediction - SQBG will have a Zacks rank of #1 some time next year...
icar has a new handle - go figure...
Buying, sticking your head in the sand and holding is really stupid. Selling when you think management is full of #$%$ is not "scared"... I might be wrong about this one, I don't care, I will stick to stocks with management teams I trust.
Also, nobody has said there will be "spectacular" growth in 2015. Management said it will be 14-16% higher than 2014. If 2014 comes in at $220mil then 2015 can come in at $250mil and be within management guidance. I don't think the market will assume a revenue beat again until management proves they can beat guidance. At that point I might buy.
