In the end. This is an example of RS
There is no relative strenght to a stock
that keeps emiting the sucking sound.
if you get suckered into so called value
stocks that are trading to a discount to
so called "real intrnisic value" You are
stuck in the mud. For the last 4 months in
a volatile market that is ready to implode
you are trusting a horses #$%$ that has
been #$%$ shareholders for 15 yrs.
Call Barry and ask for a visitation?????
Its interesting infiniti has not made comment
since he called everyone on this message
board anti-semitic? Hes probably busy putting
on lipstick to get ready for Weds. earnings
report. If infiniti doesn't realize the level of
angst towards crooked capitalism (aka: the
Portnoy family) He just doesn't get it.
Its not about ethnicity. Its about greed.
There is no incentive for the Portnoys
to make FVE look good. The operation
has simply floated with the tide.
It has no shareholder value. And was
never created to benefit investors.
The best news this pig could get is
the Ports are putting lipstick on it.
I 've not been a big fan of Chad Carlson or
the directors and insiders at Startek.
Last year was a fiasco IMO.
However, most people pay little attention
to this company. (see the avg volume)
SRT has one thing going for it that it didn't
in 2015. Year over year comps will improve
as a result of the Accent acquisition.
This will show in coming quarterly reports
as accretion adds to revenue totals. Margins
should also improve. There is about a week
until the earnings announcement.
You can turn the little porker upside down,
right side up, or inside out. There is no upside
to a pig, and there is no upside to Barry Portnoy.
Hes fleeced the shareholders of FVE for 15yrs
and the only reason many stick around is to insure
his loss by cementing ours. If Ventas came along
with a buyout of $4 share, I'd invite it.
Money always goes to wherever its best treated.
In FVE's case the money all goes into Barrys
ponzi scheme. Since the start of 2016 FVE has
hit new 5yr lows while the rest of the market has
rallied back to new highs. Many who thought FVE
was a secure safe haven because of its so called
intrinsic value, have found what long time shareholders
already know. FVE is a value trap.
There is no value in a company whose mgmy interests
remain contrary to its stake holders.
Dozens of metal mining and energy stocks are up
300-400% while dead money Five continue to fleece
investors. As ugly as this equity is. It will get real
ugly if the country retreats into another recession.
Portnoy's portulence invitites a hostile takeover.
He thinks it impossible? I don't think most shareholders
would object to a small premium for Five just to depose
the present mgmt.
Not get ahead of itself? LOL
You must lead an exciting life Mr Sears.
At least things have perked abit.
We've got el douche/ infiniti calling all
the naysayers anti-simentic.
I don't think one of my heros Sam Zell
was anti sementic when he took Barry to
task a couple years ago.
There are so many spammers and krap
on these message boards. Its hard to get
any real commentray. Yahoo has surely
sunk to new lows......
Jreb, SRT announced its 1st quarter conference call on May 5th, 2015.
Scheduling date of the event for Monday May 11th.
I suspect you will see announcement of the earnings date next week?
I've followed this company since the date it was founded
as a packaging vendor for Microsoft and Broderbund.
StarPak was the name.
I've seen it evolve into the call center business and
didn't care for the business model. No moat, low margins,
concentrated in one vertical with telecom.
That being said. I understand SRT's business model
and like to follow undervalued companies in my backyard
of Colorado. SRT has literally whipsawed investors over
the years. The shares trade daily in very low volume
and it can be very volatile on news.
Because of the low volume. I thought I would point
out something that its likely positive for SRT?
OPTIONS activity? SRT normally reports earnings
May 10-11. Someone has taken an in the money
CALL of 118 contracts on the May 20th expiration.
I have never seen any option OPEN interest in SRT
over the years because, quite frankly,there is very little
interest in SRT. So it is interesting that someone is
playing the earnings report long.
Here is the fact. ArbItraging outcomes is a fools
game. Anybody risking dollars to make pennies
is not going to ever win. Even Uptab who pumped
this stock for many years cannot argue with me.
He pumped HTCH everyday. WHERE IS HE NOW?
90% of you who have sat on HTCH for a promised
premium of 10% gain, have missed the upside in
gold and silver miners and other companies that
are up 200% in 2016. Hutch is dead money and
those who arbitraged the 10% gain stand to lose
big time if this acquistion is denied.
My suggestion to all of you idiots that hold this
bogus Hutchinson based company. Feel sorry for
the little guys who worked for Hutch and live 50 miles
west of Mpls. The town is the loser and all of the loyal
employees of this sham company. There will be no
monument built to Hutchison when they pull out of
small town Minnesota after 30 rs of bullshitting the public.
Arbitrage all you want for a 10% gain with unlimited downside.
For the chart watchers. FVE has had difficulty
breaking through its 50 day MA since Dec of
last year. The 50 day is at $2.33.
For the the last few trading sessons Five has
managed to stay above the 50 day.
FVE put in a bottom of $2 in Feb , and then
retested $2 again in early April.
Could this be the classic double bottom?
Ten years ago VGZ hit a peak of over $10/sp after
the spinoff of Allied Nevada. Since 06, its been a
tough sled. If you visited this message board a
year ago, you would find very few positive voices.
Most contributors were naysayers who had been
burnt as VGZ continued to seek lower lows.
Few understood the extent of VGZ's holdings, or
even how the companies assets were just
waiting for the gold cycle to return positive.
I was one of the lone voices to preach patience.
Now here we are again. On a threshold where
Vista is ready to ascend to new heights.
Its like Winston Churchill said...."This is not
the end, or the beginning of the end. This is the
end of the beginning." There is a lot more upside
Sears, Watching FVE for a heartbeat is like watching
grass grow. If you're banking on Hillary. I feel sorrier
for you, than I do already.
You need to watch interest rates. The Fed wants to
manufacture inflation, and raise interest rates.
Interest rate increases are a killer for REIT's.
Be careful what you wish for.
Keep making predictions. If you get one right out of 10.
You can become a weather forecaster.
If you bought into the IPO of FVE 15yrs ago, the stock
traded for $8 and change. With the recession of 2008,
Five hit lows of less than $2. Just 5 years ago in April
of 2011 FVE had finally climbed out the hole to the
$8 and change mark. But this vehicle of portulance
has never been designed to benefit shareholders and
here we sit back at the 5yr lows.
If you look at the average return of the S&P since
2008 the market is up over 100%. And yet Porky
has porked shareholders of FVE all the way to his bank.
FVE trades a less than half of its book value and
the fools parade marches on.
Its time every shareholder votes to protest
re-election of this insider, do nothing, board member.
Its also time to write a letter to the board of FVE
expressing your dissatisfaction. If you don't vote
there is no room to complain.
Vonaboy, I've always been "out there" according to
the ones that know me best. Heska is a company that
has seen its lows from the bottom of the pool with
Dr Grievious. Hes done and gone now and we have
a guy Wilson who isn't a scientist with his head up his
kiester running the company. This is Wilson's company
and he will monetize for himself and shareholders.
He's already done what Grieve couldn't do in 20 yrs in
the last 5yrs.
