mar, there is a L-O-T to do to get there. The low hanging fruit is the 24/7 programing. Even if they just starting selling any inventory left on the shelves. Or even if they just started expanding the programing hours on both ends an hour or two. This is something MB can do today with little effort. The only real question is, why hasn't he?
I do not pick on anyone because of their weight. However if they are in a job that is over their head in a company that I am an owner (shareholder) of then I will give my opinion on their lack of management skills. I also won't call anyone names, it really is not necessary.
You may want to look at the last 120 days, smart money has been doing just fine. It should do just fine when RAD announces earnings. In fact if RAD comes in less than what is expected, I'd like that because it is all about 2015 IMHO. I like the cheap shares. But in full disclosure, I have to wait right now for additional funds so if RAD were to move up right now I'd miss out on adding shares, but do like the position I have in RAD right now. My average price is 1.95, that's fine for now. I just like what CVS did and only see the benefits coming RAD's way. We'll see if I am right or wrong for 2015, in 2015.
pacer12, I wish I could be wrong but the pps speaks volumes that a change in leadership is needed. Now if you believe the company can change by either getting to profitability or change its management or both then hold your shares as I am. CPST as I have stated has great products IMHO, to me it just lacks the right people to exploit them and run the business the right way. If I am wrong in thinking this then why does the pps trade where it trades with all the good news of back log, and sales? The market is just not believing this management team right now. If you are trading this as a daytrader, then you may be right to dump, for IMHO it will take a long time to get the changes that are needed. However if for some miracle DJ changes and does make a profit consistently then I will be the first to give him the recognition for it.
And they can not make a profit...., and the pps continues to drop. So what is wrong with this picture noochie44 paints?
Because, management can not run the company for the shareholders as well as they can by ripping them off with their cheap options they get..., besides the way too high pay for the lack of performance. The company is ripe for an activist hedge fund to come in, that is for sure.
So a Zack's report issues a sell this morning and says they will beat but miss Zack's number, if I read it right. Well thank you Zack's for the push down this morning. Not to mention the option puts volume of 9000+ which are the strategist protecting their long position in case Zack's is right and the stock drops. This is what they do to hold long and buy insurance..., no big deal IMHO. Now if those who believe Zack's want to sell, do so but Zack's of all the research firms is the most unreliable IMHO. IMHO Yahoo would be better off getting a better more reliable service..., but that's just me. For me RAD is doing fine and with an average three month same store sales number of 4.1 they should do just fine when they announce. That said it is not really about this quarters number anyway as much as it is about Oct-Dec and beyond as the fallout comes from CVS and what benefit RAD will acquire from CVS's big mistake by who it is choosing as their customers.
I expect that the smart money will pick up some more cheap shares and the pps will move up from its low today once more as what has happened each time a scare is thrown out about RAD. ALL JHMO.
HIMX is really not that much tied to the U.S. market as much as it is tied to the China market for now, as they expand their partnerships that could very well change.
As too the U.S. Market it is way overdue for a correction as we all are aware. September has always been a weak month for the most part and the second to beginning third week in Oct has seen most of the larger single day declines. Ok that was a historical view. Some argue that the market is high as a PE bases goes, but not the highest ever, right now. So what should we expect? In my opinion we should expect to see HIMX continue to improve unless the China market would stop their recovery and fall back. But keep in mind China is still growing 7% (we'd give our eye teeth to do that in the U.S. I might add) and even though the world looks at that as a decline. So HIMX is just fine and should continue to move up on its own news. The U.S. really needs a 6-10% pullback and we should see that in the next 30 or so days. After that, we move up through somewhere between January or April with a minor pull back in February or early March. However pulling back by then may be prudent as we consider how far we have gone and the fact the elections will start in 2016 so 2015 usually means a down market before the campaigns start.
So that is my crystal ball guestimate. Bottom line for now expect a 6% for the Dow and S&P500 (10% for the Russell) decline. The decline seems to have started but it there are still many buying the dips. Toward the end of the month we will see less of this as the institutions lock in their advances and sell off a bit. When they start to sell it should last 5-6 days and at some point on the 5th day IMHO will be an opportunity to buy those U.S companies that declined 6%. Good luck and may your crystal ball not fall off the table.
frank the information you provided is ten years old and only deals with that foreign companies own country's exchange stock listing and the accounting. Now to comprehend what I first posted reread the second sentence that starts with, "By listing on a U.S. exchange...,". Now redo your research and be sure to find the answer with this criteria. Good Luck!
Actually frank, there you are incorrect. By listing on a U.S. exchange you are subject to U.S. security Laws and filing standards and accounting GAAP rules. This includes any insider transactions of buying or selling stock.
frank, not sure where you are getting your information but for the most part it is inaccurate. It may be your opinion and that is fine but you should state that or you are misrepresenting the facts. Also picking certain words or sentences that do not represent the entire meaning is not creditworthy and could even be a bit libel IMHO. I would be careful in this choice of posting if I were you and reframe from this method. Using IMHO or JMHO represents opinions, not necessarily facts, I suggest this method would be a better choice for you. But if you have proof of the meaning you are using in your posts, just provide the source..., but remember not to chop up the sentences or the paragraph's meaning.
Talk is cheap, Cheerleading is a waste of time, action is what we need. schmataguy, we'll see tomorrow if you are right, I sure hope you are. Right now KS has all the credit including the Cuban show, 87M footprint, 1.2-4m Customers and product mix. Not to mention the Branding and cost reductions in carriage. The biggest move MB could make right now is the 24/7 programing. Yep, low hanging fruit.
IMHO if they went to 24/7 programing they could increase sales by at least 50% in a year. That could really benefit shareholders pps. They have the capacity to do this without it costing that much.
Nothing goes straight up, pull backs are good but this is not a "Bear Attack" For that to happen the stock would have to drop by 30% IMHO at the minimum, but more like 50% or more like when HIMX dropped from 16.15.
I don't think so, but nice try. I guess when a stock has a huge move like HIMX had in the last week even the less astute can be right on a pull back for a day or two, but in the end it is a far cry to a "Bear Attack" which is claimed here. LOL, LOL, LOL. You guys got to be young.
Stupid Lawsuit, Lawyers suing shareholders for shareholders to pay shareholders and lawyers. Just dumb. Responsibility lies with the purchaser doing his/hers due diligence. No one forced no one to become a shareholder, it is a free choice to be a shareholder of FBC or any company for that matter. I as a shareholder will not join a lawsuit that will only harm me the shareholder in the end with the only one to benefit being the lawyers. No Thank You.
Yep mar, and the clock continues to go forward with little change if any at all. The announced they would start a 24/7 programing in I believe January, February? Why not this Christmas season when demand is strong vs. the weakest quarter if in February. This should be easy, even if they started with selling watches and jewelry. I think they are missing out on a lot of west coast business right now and east coast in the A.M. This is all low hanging fruit and should be easily "exploitable" right now..., even if they just started extending the hours on both sides of the schedule. I am starting to get disappointed as we hear more about severance costs and stock options than what they are doing in real terms to their propaganda Clinton Group put forward on how good this would be for shareholders. They have had control for three months and we get less information from the new team then we did the old. During the CC MB repeated himself with his cheerleading speech over and over with each question presented and his answer. I hope they read this message board and in the least give us a press release on some significant change they are going to make now. They have had plenty of time to get the lay of the land..., now lets some crop growth.
