  • Would one expect anything less than divergent reviews for Divergent.

    --The dauntless reviewers love it.
    --The erudite reviewers not so much.
    --The candor reviewers are split.
    --The amity and abnegations simply are not reviewers and do not gravitate to this profession
    for disparate but obvious reasons.

    fwiw

    i have a pretty good track record on calling $30 stocks going to $100

    successful next few years.

    very pure,

    i know you have been posting on the deck board for many years and i truly respect that. because of my respect for your longevity here, i will reply to you.

    my investment style is very peter lynchesque.... i learned a lot from the old motley fools back in the 90s to become my own portfolio manager... and to do my own research.... i often invest in things that i understand, use and know... i made a lot of money investing in apple stock (if you go back many many years you can still read my old posts) and other than the downturn in 2008-9, my returns have been quite good... not going to share specific numbers but obviously i would not still be here but for the fact that i have had quite good success.... not bragging... just stating a fact. i consider myself pretty much an average joe even though from a pure dollar perspective i have become quite comfortable...

    in part my investment philosophy led me to invest in deck, ua and lgf as you pointed out.

    my mantra is and always will be "open your eyes"

    i have been building a position in a still unnamed stock (i often use a dollar cost average strategy) that i believe in the long run will be a 10 bagger similar to UA

    my portfolio consists of anywhere from 12-20 stocks

    one stock that i particularly like for the long haul that i still hold is dnkn.... they are expanding to the west coast and also to england.... i am in from the low 30s... i go to dnkn at least once or twice a week so i can see how they are doing.... love the coffee and other offerings there....

    anyhoo... best to you.... have a great weekend

    with the bulk of that being international ($575 million international)....

    now the original HG made only $283 million international...

    the original HG of course is available in disc format and of course it could be netflixed as well... but any chance Lions Gate might re-release the original HG for the theatres for those that want to see it again perhaps with additional film footage not in the original to draw viewers back?

    food for thought,

    Undervalued Under Armour

    by unitedfood Apr 16, 2009 1:10 PM
    unitedfood unitedfood Oct 17, 2013 4:43 PM Flag

    This is my favorite post on this message board. In April of 2009 I saw what so many on wall street did not.

    My mantra has always been open your eyes. Believe what you see.

    I did the same thing when I recommended LGF here folks.

    I have a new one with an under 1 billion valuation than I am going to recommend soon. Yes folks, I have a new gem but I am going to keep it quiet for a bit as I build my position.

    Best to all true longs,

    deck remains undervalued

    well between FIVE and DECK -- i would rather own deck but FIVE is on fire today and kudos to that company and its investors (valued at 2.6 billion versus 2.1 billion for deck)... one of these days deck will be up 17 percent in one day

  • unitedfood by unitedfood Sep 10, 2013 2:54 PM Flag

    going into the fall and winter months this one is going to do quite well

    As anyone who cares to check I have been posting on Yahoo message boards offering my perspective since 1999. If there is anyone posting still with a member since before that date we should all get together as being Yahoo MVPs (most valuable posters)... because unless we were successful investors we simply would not still be around. Do we make mistakes from time to time? Do we miss things? Sure. One of the ones that I admittedly missed was LULU a while back. I just did not see how popular they had become. And honestly I still do not get LULU. For the last several years I would walk by the local LULU store and it would for the most part be empty. It appeared to me that they could not be profitable. Perhaps other locations were doing better and indeed that may have been the case. At some level my suspicion that the store I would walk by was not a winner was confirmed recently. It closed. Yep "my" LULU store closed. Of course they are not saying it closed. They are saying they are relocating. And to a certain extent that is true. Probably the same employees will work at the new location at the mall in the next suburb over. But honestly if the first location was doing so well... no need to close it... simply open the one at the mall and keep the one in town here. I am revealing this information/perspective about LULU because they are reporting on Friday from what I understand. Looks like LULU got an upgrade yesterday going into earnings. But honestly, I still do not get LULU and am not investing in it. Maybe I will once again miss that one and it will do gangbusters again. But my gut tells me to stay away.

    Going to 100

    by unitedfood May 19, 2010 10:25 AM
    unitedfood unitedfood Jul 26, 2013 7:18 PM Flag

    so this is the original call going to 100 in May of 2010 over three years ago... ( back then the stock was around 15 bucks and change factoring the split)... the stock is now at 138.. over 300 percent higher, and over 200 percent hight at 100 per share...

    the current call for post split 100 again, is a far more modest target and prediction.... merely a 50 percent gain

  • why don't you gloat ufood... why don't you call out those you were questioning your investing acumen... and your vision regarding under armour... i just say to em... don't need to... it is just not my style....

    the sweetest thing is simply looking at the old portfolio and smiling

    to those who see the future i see and have remained long, have a good weekend

    Sentiment: Buy

    Under Armour in 10 years -- over $600

    by unitedfood Jul 18, 2013 5:46 PM
    unitedfood unitedfood Jul 19, 2013 11:03 AM Flag

    sometimes you have to see things long term. most traders do not see things from a longitudinal level.

    UA is now NKE's rival on a domestic level and internationally that will be developing over the next few years. It is inevitable (unless NKE buys UA out for say $20 billion with the current CEO taking on a big role in the combined company). The more likely scenario long term is that the UA-NKE rivalry will be similar to the PEP-KO rivalry. Both companies can and will succeed. But the better long term play will be UA. Not to be morbid... but domestically.... every day there is a baby born who will more likely be wearing the UA symbol and every day someone dies who was previously donning the swoosh. The swoosh is no longer the symbol of choice in the states.

    As most of my fans know, i have been posting on these here message boards for years and years. My strength is that i see things before others do. I knew that UA was undervalued when it was in single digits. i knew that Apple was undervalued in single digits. i knew that Pixar was undervalued before the Disney buyout. I knew Lions Gate was undervalued around the time it was trading in the low teens. My fans always ask me what do you like now UFOOD. What do you see? Besides UA, What UFood especially likes now is MANU-- folks as a long term play. Very thinly traded but long term the sky is the limit.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
