Well, hey there Bob. We haven't seen you here (under your own moniker) for a while.
Thanks for the updated news. Oooooo. Pretty Scarey!
New SA article dated today, titled as above. Kind of interesting.
Smart move, or too big for their britches?
About Aug 5, 2013, the shares last saw $16 and plummeted just thereafter.
It'd sure be nice to see the ascent to there and beyond at that same reporting period this year.
"that late day surge?"
Yeah, how about that! I saw your post when we'd rocketed down to 12.05 or something.
All I know is, I'm suing them for whiplash.
" I present a fair question"
With great foresight, I posted that transparently intentional Freudian Slip. Now Law will wonder if he is merely being deceived, or if he is being counter-deceived by the deception.
It doesn't really matter though. Once he mis-makes up his mind, it's there to stay regardless of facts presented.
"Sometimes, you just have to place the person on ignore"
Actually Kinged, Ive done a lot of that, and I'm paying for it with delays due to the enormous overhead at the Yahoo mis-Servers as they re-shuffle what to show from all the blocked spammers and relentlessly potty-mouthed haters-of-facts.
Lorenzo, I have no explanation, but the lack of fireworks was disappointing to me, too.
It seems hard to believe the contract holder wouldn't exercise the options with the share price so close, and the volume so low because, as you pointed out before, the additional volume from exercising the options would surely put those shares in the green, initially anyway.
I thought that these contracts expired Sat 7/19 at 4PM, but I may be wrong. However, trading a million shares in the extended trading hours would seem to be an impossible nightmare, unless there was some sort of a prearranged trading agreement.
Could the counter-party have defaulted on the contract? Ouch.
"major volume coming in the last 10 minutes"
Unless of course you were referring to the very high volume at which you were cranking that Foghat album in your mommy's basement, again.
I forgot how far your head's up your keister there JoeL. I keep trying to cut you some slack in hopes that you might grow up and have an adult conversation.
Your "response" was evasive, vague, and petulant, as usual. While not many folks have a very high opinion of lawyers as a group, no one but no one believes that an ineloquent whank like you could ever be one.
However, I have to confess. Everyone here on this message board, except your 37 ID's, is me. Boy, it sure is embarrassing when I get caught pretending to be someone else. How about you?
"the stats look great..."
The numbers I pasted below are hardly impressive and are essentially unchanged for some time now. By "great" you may be referring to some other stats - please post those for us to see.
Otherwise, sorry if I'm missing it, but how are those rankings any good?
Yes, when you reminded. It doesn't seem encouraging.
Alexa rankings compared to previous 3mo period
dexknows Global Rank 11,850 = Up 1,246 Rank in US 3,029
dexmedia Global Rank 21,721 ?Up 228,383 Rank in India 3,254
superpages Global Rank 3,211 = Down 390 Rank in US 773
Supermedia Now Forwards to dexmedia
yelp Global Rank 134 = Up 3 Rank in US 27
yellowpages Global Rank 584 = Up 11 Rank in US 136
So when Dex sales folks call on leads, it would seem that they have first have to overcome "Decks? Who's Decks? How did you get my contact information?"
Seriously, one wonders how difficult it must be for the salesfolks to convince prospects that they can improve the prospect's internet listing leads when Dex can't keep it's own traffic going towards the top of the listing when searching for businesses.
And, I think somebody forgot to tell the traders today:
Dex Media, Inc. (DXM) -NasdaqGS
12.05 Down 0.20(1.63%) 4:00PM EDT
Newz, rumors, Meaningless fluke...?
First post ever from Mr. Ed's buddy.
These are pretty provocative accusations from someone alluding to inside information.
Unless you are FOS, then tell us what you've got.
"A purchase of 1M shares would potentially lift the price by at least $6 making the trade worth it."
Now THAT's an interesting supposition! The question, of course, would be if the SP held the increased "valuation" or not. It sort of looks like the low volume recently may be due, in part, to folks having made their evaluation of Dex's nearer and intermediate term prospects and taken their positions. So, If folks are reluctant to take small gains now to hold out for larger gains later, any buying action would be a perfect storm in combination with a potential 2mm share short covering against the short sales in the $4.50 - $7 range when actual (hopefully) good news comes in August.
I've generally been a skeptic of the persistent wishful thinking of the long-running Short Rally Thesis for Dex.
However, the options theory you propose makes the whole thing more interesting.
BTW, that Red Thumb was mine. Meant to click green and wasn't paying enough attention - Yahoo won't let you change it once made. oops.
That steep curve starting at around 11AM yesterday and ending around 11 today was looking pretty serious.
