One of the smartest investors on the planet is
foxy old Sam Zell. If Mackey and Portnoy continue
to play this shell game. It may backfire.
The longer it takes for FVE's management to do
the right thing, and report like all other public
companies. The more opportunity they are giving
the old fox access to the henhouse.
Most familiar with the modus operandi of insiders
at FVE know their self dealing habits. It seems
the spread has tightened between the bid and ask.
Inspite of the concerted pressure to push the price
downward. The supply is limited. There doesn't seem
to be many sellers, excepting the manipulators.
This is a self induced "shoot yourself in the foot"
situation orchestrated by the principals.
Sooner or later the financials will have to be released.
Why would anyone shortchange themselves before
they have the chance to vote the BOD's out?
I love buying when everybody else is heading for the exits.
No one should buy or sell on BS from a message board.
However, We are very close to getting an even better buying opp.
as RMR is forcing the play by failure to disclose financials.
No one should concern themselves with technicals in this
equity. You buy on your own dd and conviction. Sell to the
manipulators and you short change the inherent value.
You cannot listen to day traders who would have you give up
at 52 week lows. If they cannot buy your shares cheap, they lose.
This sell down is like a slow water drip torture. Force out
the weak hands so Corvex and Sam Zell can buy in cheap.
Portnoy is done. HE JUST HASN'T GOT THE PINK SLIP YET!
Ohio, Keep the faith. AOIL passed the first hurdle.
The Hanna basin in Wyoming has historically been
a coal mining mecca. This first wildcat well will bring
interest of others. Armada has a gem of an opportunity
partnering with Anadarko. With the success in this
first well AOIL can find financial backing for developing
the structure without diluting shareholders.
Buy all of the shares you can at these low levels.
4wd, I agree. However, shareholders have RMR's number.
And it didn't take a reveal of the financials to figure it out.
Portnoy was displaced from Commonwealth by the shareholders
and he will be displaced by shareholders of FVE.
He doesn't want a proxy vote. And these delays prove it.
Its only a matter of time.
Everytime the share price gets squeezed down a bit
due to the intransigence of Porknoy & team, the
insiders mess their own p.j'.s.
Bruce Mackey 516,000 shares, Barry Portnoy 201,000,
Gerard Martin 189,000, Paul Hoaglund 145,000.
Insiders account for over 1 million shares of FVE.
The sluggos can manipulate all they want to keep
milking the company cow. But ultimately, they will not
act to the detriment of their own stake holdings in FVE.
So you create a new ID just to save us from ourselves?
OR MAYBE YOU HAVE ANOTHER MOTIVE?
Commonwealths actions threw the fear of God into Portney.
FVE shareholders know fair value, and will not sell their
shares to a sham artist like you. Create a new idenity and
come back and tell us you are shorting FVE.
I think Seeking Alpha, no longer links, opinion recommendations
on Yahoo? In order to view the Thomas Lewis article. You must
visit the Seeking Alpha website.
A very detailed and informative article by
Thomas Lewis of Seeking Alfalfa came out
today. It is very bullih and basically reiterates
what our lad uptab has been saying for over a
year. Its a must read for more info on the OIS
sears, I have to agree. We have already had 3 postponements
and should have already received proxy detail.
However, I find it interesting that the company only chose to
delay with a 30 day window, instead of the previous 60 day delay?
The real pressure has to be building for disclosure of the overdue
financials. Like 4wd said. "There is no reason, including Hoaglunds
general incompetency, that the financials should be further delayed."
Heska has recovered something lost in 2007.
Mojo!!! With Wilson as new CEO the company
has the vision of a masterful marketing manager,
and the creativity of a smart sales team.
Heska used to be managed by a pseudo scientist
who couldn't sell a snowball in Haiti.
Wilson has now re-energized sales and marketing,
and incentivized customer reps to perform better.
The momentum will continue to produce revenue growth
in 2014- and 2015. With only 5MM shares of float, the
multiple can easily expand quickly once the street sees
Heska as a growth company.
Uptab, I agree completely. Its been rumored the Iphone 6
will employ OIS technology. If that is indeed a feature, other
phone mfgs will follow suit. Nokia has led the way in OIS,
and IMO Apple will reinforce the added value of OIS tomorrow.
A 5 Star rating usually connotes a quality concern.
For investors in FVE, the performance and governance
of the BOD's and management, has been anything
but stellar. These sluggo's have blatant disregard
for the shareholder. They have boxed themselves
into a corner. Heads...you lose, tails.... you lose.
Its only a matter of time. Financials will have to be reported.
Shareholders will have a voice, and further procrastination
invites it sooner, rather than later.
Portnoy's manuvering is more akin to a sq-worm.
I cannot imagine,, if vote was cast today. How these slugs
would avoid being thrown out on their ears.
There is much anticipation and speculation
pending Apple's product release date on Tues.
Many are wondering whether AAPL will use
saphire glass supplied by GTAT? Many are
assuming MU will supply its chip in the Iphone 6.
Others are waiting for the news to reveal vendors
expected to benefit from the new product cycle.
Down on the Hutch farm, we will be crossing our
fingers for a reveal of OIS in the new Iphones.
Image stabilization is coming to all smartphone
cameras. Its only a question of how much share
HTCH will get of this burgeoning new business.
4wd, Portnoy has been doing damage control since
the loss of Commonwealth. His move to consolidate
SIR into GOV is an example. You can bet he is manipulating
behind the scenes to delay and procrastinate the
shareholders meeting because he knows the angst
felt for him and the BOD. IMO he will continue to kick
the can down the road until his hand is forced.
This could be done by an activist shareholder group,
an unsolictited hostile offer, or SNH intervening.
Portnoy is in a corner, and its just a matter of time.
All he is doing by his obvious malfeasance is
alienating more people everyday.
Last weeks Form 4's showed board member
Aylesworth sold 1600 shares to acquire
5000 option shares at $4.60.
The former chairman has been acquiring
swap shares over the last 2 years.
There are many reasons to sell, but only
one reason to buy!
Form 4's filed last week show 2 insiders
purchasing a nominal number of shares.
Frank Russomanno purchased 3476 at $3.78,
and Phil Soran 4,600 at $3.78.
There are a lot of reason insiders sell,
but only one reason they "buy".
