stocks down npo shock its been down after earnings since last fall earnings,once again spending ,issues seem to be around
im a little confused,we all kind of agree that the co is content not seeing its share price increase if ive understood a lot of chat here,clearly the co because of the low float and mgt having a decent control over price would imply that marty and mgt will and do determine the cos value,i realize there is institutional ownership,but based on the limited number of firms really covering this its mgt that truly influences share price
look at the last years chart,big runup and some profit taking going into earnings to be expected,ive learned unlike say sbux or fb mot to watch this too closely.
looks like a mkt sell off based on ah earnings i doubt we see 60 this week thou within the next 10 trading days for sure
sbux is digesting its recent gains as evidence as it hasnt ventured far from this 57 since the earnings announcement,i bet we go under 57 by weeks end and start a slow up move either next week or the week after.
the questions are which we have zero clue is where does marty value the co over the next few years,and will the mkt agree,as i keep mentioning the scary thing is the total lack of mkt interest as seen from volume
i too see that you have been pretty fair in assesing fb,my question to you is how much is the huge float in fb shares figure in your valuations im guessing they are too much into my own thinking which is why i reject google comps,fwiw i figure a pop on the earnings announcement but we will be not far from where we are by this time tomorow
thanks for the clarification,i guess im asking is the likely/hopeful outcome worth the waittrying to guess the number.you are right as every major deal marty has done came from outa nowhere save hlth/wbmd merger i recall rumurs gor weeks prior.since this merger its been by in large frustrating
steve ,for a few days ive been contemplating the idea that we have mgt really working to an extent against shareholders judging by the way the stock price has acted and the continual dis interest in the stock as viewd from volume,i think i agree with your opinion mgt really is holding the price down waiting for a merger or a buyout,in that light ive been trying to determine if waiting for this event is worth it and conceptualy what would be worth waiting for,its hard for me as ive been with marty since the 80s.for this to wait another 18 mos ,keeping in mind that a standard buyout is typicly about 15 to 25 percent,when i plug in the 18 mos i believe the stock gets aniother 10 percent,which if i take the 25 percent prem gets us to thats 72 dollars you reference above,nice if true,but im having a hard time getting to believe how this plays out.im frustrated with this
we are a little high and options seem to be hinting that for july the high has been hit at 57 or soi thin sbux restarts after fall
the stock in fact ran up and has been backing and filling during the last 3 days gyrations i said earlier post earnings that i doubted any 60 calls would survive this month and todays activity seems to solidifi,i think 57 or so likely the options pin this week.i love the stock over the next cpl of years
wmb is up too doubt this is related its commodity relatedif ete comes back it will not be with a higher offer,williams is worth less.
you realize thats a year target as such reasonable
if we do so what this a world wide sell off that likely has days to go,i just hope mgt does blow the conf call or this will break under 90
this is likely a week long event,with a small turnaround tomorow,terrible environment for fb earnings to come out
i know precisely how the mkt did under bush,i used this the same way i say the mt does what it does on fed day and time,maybe it was coincidence,but it happened,by the way im not a repub,im actiually voting for sanders should he make it,as i feel the capitalism failed and im tired of fighting for dollars we should try something else though with our debt i doubt socialism will work either.try again
