    TPH Earning Out !! Blow-Out Numbers.

    Company seems to have a bright future, but they will be taking huge $$ charges in Q3 and no matter how that is spun, it will cause some "headline risk" when it is reported. Also, if rates start to move up ALL of the homebuilders will be high on the sell lists due to fears that mortgages will follow suit (which they will) and chill any expansion in the housing market. Days of no-doc, interest-only, BS loans are over.

  • Absolutely every metric was strong...all quarterly financials, new orders, backlogs etc. What is really nice is that their financial statements are as clean as can be; no b.s. with tons of peculiar categories....very simple, straight-forward and easy to understand. Nothing "hidden." Now at a $.44/year dividend rate and certainly they didn't raise it with the expectation that they would have to lower it any time soon, so it sends a very optimistic message. I doubt if they can repeat $.14/share going forward, (and that, by the way, is FULLY taxed), but even if they could, then that would be $.56/share annual rate. Along with a rock-solid balance sheet that is worth almost $2, that leaves an $8 current "enterprise value" which is about a 15 multiple, so very, very conservatively valued and lots of headroom to grow into a stock price that is a few $$ higher over the next quarter.

    What a nice microcap with no BS around it.

  • Since Mr. Market was saying the company was worth $5.75 before the cash dividend and the company is now $1.75 poorer, the logic would dictate that the price should seek back to $4 as the "base price".

    As usual, you don't have a clue; ignorant cheerleader. The stock, by regulations, opens at the prior closing price less the dividend on the ex-dividend day PERIOD...end of story. If it then climbs $.75 after that, then it might only be down $1 later on...but at the open BY REGULATION the dividend is subtracted. Why do you embarrass yourself with your ignorance??

    Shame you have no clue as to what is happening and how GE is becoming embedded into the 5 highest growth industries around the World with tremendous diversification by product line and geography. The Alstom deal was a huge win for Immelt and my hunch is that he "gave" less than he originally expect to get the deal done. The IPO of Synchrony will put several billion $$ in GE's coffers and the swap in 2015 of Synchrony shares for GE will, effectively, be a large buyback of 6-9% of GE's stock in exchange for a piece that the World will be happy to see gone from GE's portfolio. The dividend will be raised in November to $.96-$1 and the stock is going to get upgraded appraisals by analysts and institutions which will propel it well over $30 in the next 4-6 months. Being the sole supplier to Boeing for the engines on the Emirates' $56 BILLION order and the huge Brazilian order are just the beginning. There will be no other company in the World with GE's diversification (protection against any given area of the World sneezing), as well as being a major force in power, aviation, oil & gas etc.

    Immelt has done a great job bringing GE back from Welch's mess and his legacy will be the next ten years of GE's ability to reward its shareholders more than those of most of the other major U.S. industrials.

    Yes, stocks DO go up and down. Today was brutal for the Russell 2000 and EVOL got whacked pretty good. It went up on fundamental good news and perhaps ran past what the news merited. Next information point will be Q2 earnings and YOY and Q to Q comparisons. If they are good the stock should move higher. If they are weak then the stock will move lower back to where the dividend supports the price. No great mystery here as there aren't enough shares in the float to attract shorts or algos here.

    Yes, they will show $819 in revenue and net profit. Already telegraphed. This will "blow up" within the next 6 months- 1 year guaranteed. I know EXACTLY what they are.

    I don't need to influence the price; that will take care of itself over time.

    This is a total BS stock. Somehow people have given this a market value of $400mm??? They owed "related parties" $30mm after showing $6mm in pre-tax profits. Can't you see what is going on?? Better run before all the cockroaches come out from under the bed.

    ALL OF THE ABOVE IS MY OPINION

    Not sure it is good news, but the S1 was filed so that 7,000,000 shares can be dumped on the market by the original investors anytime they want. Watch out below!!!!!! Many paid pennies/share so even if they might think it could be worth something in the future, it is hard to resist cashing in 100 times what one paid ; )
