    No pre-dividend climb this year?

    I agree formfan,

    I've followed it as long as you. There is always been a
    seasonality to trading this company you buy going into
    the dividend x date and sell it to harvest the div'd.
    The rest of the year its dead money. This is an exceptionally
    risky stock to hold if we do indeed get a market setback.
    Risky small caps that under perform get punished more
    than the more liquid large caps. MNDO could easily be
    trading for a buck if we retreat into recession.
    Money flows to where its treated best. The only reason
    to own MNDO over the years is for the dividend.

    I've lived in Colorado and have followed VGZ
    for over 20 years. Vista spawned Allied Nevada
    in the last bull run on gold. And Vista will parlay
    a partner into Mt Todd and do the same.
    If you want a leveraged play on the value
    of devalued world currencies, you need to hedge
    with hard assets that give the most bang for a
    valueless buck.

    Its a value trap. Guys like our friend Mr Sears will tell
    everybody how undervalued Five is by comparison.
    Mean while the leach who designed the sucking sound
    screws shareholders every day. Look at Portnoys IPO
    of FVE 15 yrs ago .This has never been about this
    so called good luck to you. This is Portnoys stick it up
    your keister.

  • tommccauley31 tommccauley31 May 4, 2016 11:34 AM Flag

    So Mr Sears, You are basing your prognostications
    on how right you've been at bottom feeding over the years?
    Great record. Even you acknowlege FVE is stuck in the mud?
    You were pimping it a buy at $6 a few years ago.
    So now you are reduced to pimping occupancy rates and
    upside to a leach named Barry. Portnoy practices trickle
    up economics to line his own pocket. Every body knows it.
    And evidentally you don't get it?
    You're wearing the lipstick today.

    Sears, Jd has frequently reminded you about
    your spelling...Posturing is not Postering a dozen
    times a day with your inane predictions.
    Posturing is is assuming the position. In other
    words bend over and assume the position because
    the Port holes have you made.

    You never win chasing the lowest common denominator.
    Buying FVE is chasing teats on a boar.

    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?????

  • tommccauley31 by tommccauley31 May 2, 2016 12:30 PM Flag

    Every shareholder of this company is willing to
    sell it for 2 cents on the dollar. In the end you're just a pork-hole.

    Will the Ports wear lipstick on Wednesday?

    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.
    Pay attention.

    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.

  • tommccauley31 by tommccauley31 Apr 30, 2016 10:16 AM Flag

    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.

    Holding pattern until earnings next week...

    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.

    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?

  • tommccauley31 by tommccauley31 Apr 28, 2016 10:16 AM Flag

    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.
