    gabelli funds

    Yes, Gabelli (GAMCO) filed a 13D on 3-31. It is interesting that they filed a 13D, indicating an activist position, and not the usual 13G, a passive investment, that most mutual funds file.

    $255k PROFITS

    Total revenues have not been down, they have been up.

  • Where are the comments of support or explanation from management and the analysts that cover this company? One would think that after hefty percentage drops for the past few days someone would step up and keep us, the shareholders, informed. If this company has a future the price right now should be enticing management to buy some shares, but nothing as far as I can see. Is this a bear raid or is the other shoe about to drop? Maybe the indictment is like the old saying about when a one cockroach is found there are probably others. Well, at least no one has resigned "to pursue other interests" --- yet.

    Good luck, all.

    fast money just did a bash job on etfc

    You are correct. According to a synopsis of the show on The Street, "Grasso said that he was a buyer of E-Trade Financial even after the strong week, where shares gained 10%, citing the upside momentum is not finished." The story was in E*Trade's headlines on Saturday, July 27 under the title, " 'Fast Money' Recap: Housing Stocks".

  • Down close to over 4% Friday and down over 5% today. This reminds me of last quarter when they kept delaying the earnings release and the stock tanked for a few days before they announced a big earnings miss.

  • Here is a quote from an August 19, 2011 Bloomberg interview, "If DexCom can double its stock price to $20 or more as a result, Gregg said he’d be open to takeover bids." The result he spoke of, was the introduction of the new/current CGM. He also said the company should be profitable, but he subsequently increased his spending, purchasing a software company and boosting research so the profitability requirement may no longer be on the table.

    I am not counting on a buyout, but the story speaks for itself. If you want to read the whole story, look on the internet for the title, Device Maker DexCom May Be for Sale in 2012, CEO Gregg Says. Sorry for not providing a link, but Yahoo has been deleting my posts with links attached, at least that has been my experience.

    Good luck, all.

    Should I invest (not spam post)

    These are some excerpts from a 3-28-13 article from the diaTribe website.

    In February, Dexcom submitted an application to expand the label for the G4 Platinum CGM (continuous glucose monitor) to pediatric patients who are as young as two years old. The FDA normally responds to these applications after 180 days, and we expect a decision from the agency during the second half of 2013. Currently, the G4 is only approved for those who are 18 years and older. Though some children are now using the CGM, they are using it “off-label,” and not all healthcare providers (HCPs) are comfortable prescribing therapies in this way.

    Dexcom is also working on a new remote monitoring product, Dexcom Share. The product is a cradle that holds the G4 Platinum receiver and plugs into a power outlet at a user’s bedside. Data from the G4 Platinum are then sent via the cradle (using Bluetooth) to a nearby smartphone. That phone then uploads the data to a web-based platform, where it can be monitored by parents or caregivers on their own cellphones. At the ATTD conference, Dexcom showed a picture of a father on a business trip in a taxi, checking his phone with a sigh of relief that his daughter’s CGM reading was 150 mg/dl.

    Good luck.

    SEC intervention is the kiss of death!

    Usually, the class action lawsuits are consolidated and companies have insurance for employees engaging in fraud. Management will definitely be distracted, though, and the company will have to cough up some cash.

    I just don't get the need for a dredging company to have a demolition subsidiary. Senior management should be punished for such nonsense and for their inability to properly manage/supervise the unit or the person running it. That's usually not how it works. No one loses bonuses or stock options and they often get rewarded for having to guide the company through the mess that they themselves created in the first place. Senior managers and some directors should resign for the purchase of the subsidiary and for not ensuring the soundness of the operating systems at that subsidiary.

    I am also considering buying more because demolition is not the major business of GLDD, dredging is and they have some jobs coming up.

    Good luck, all.

    You are speaking about his brother, Yoni, who was the only Israeli soldier killed in the operation.

    Yes, the earnings release date has been messed up. I don't know the source of the Yahoo numbers, but instead of just removing them, they just keep posting the next day's date. GLDD had released the earnings numbers for Q4 and fiscal year on the 21st and 22nd of February for the past two years and have always announced the earnings release date one week in advance. I am disappointed in the company's lack of execution.

    Good luck, all.

    I cannot comment as i do not have a G4, just own the stock.

  • This story was from 1-14-13.

    "Wunderlich Securities noted, “We are raising our price target on DexCom (DXCM) to $18 per share from $15, reflecting the strong, initial success of the G4 Platinum CGM and additional catalysts on the horizon in 2013. DXCM pre-announced very strong Q4 product revenues last week, and offered solid guidance for 2013. Strong patient acceptance of G4 will drive results, which could leave our 2013 estimates conservative. In addition, FDA approval for pediatric patients and approval of the integrated Animas (JNJ-NR) pump/CGM serve as additional catalysts on the horizon (not built into our current estimates). DXCM is well positioned for strong growth in 2013 and beyond, and we continue to view the company as one of the most attractive acquisition targets in our coverage.”

    DexCom closed on Friday at $14.82."

    Good luck, all.

    The filing was a 13G, a passive investment, not a 13D, one meant to influence management. Still the investment was made to make a profit and they paid more than I did.

    If you Google the topic include "Great Lakes Dredge & Dock" with the "Arthur Kill channel dredging" topic.

  • GLDD was awarded a contract for $41 million on January 31. I have posted the story twice and included the link to the story, but Yahoo keeps deleting the post. Just Google Arthur Kill channel dredging for the story. Good luck, all.

    Why Wells Fargo should buy E*Trade

    tmcg1367 tmcg1367 Jan 21, 2013 11:00 AM Flag

    I agree with your reasoning. Wells Fargo does have an online brokerage subsidiary, so they are familiar with the business. They had expressed a desire to expand that business in the past.

  • Cut and paste or click on the link below, whichever works, for a good story about the dredging backlog for Great Lakes ports.

    Good luck, all.

  • Nice Investopedia article with a positive mention of Great Lakes Dredge. I wonder why it wasn't listed in the Great Lakes story section. Good luck, all.

    Congratulations! Is this your first CGM or did you have the 7+ before the G4? The G5 is supposed to be able to use a smartphone as the device. Good luck with your G4.
