  • very professional fashion. Just goes to show how small-time all these clowns really are. The entire market cap of MCZ is $25million! If you owned all the shares, that is all it is! Peanuts. Yet mei and micro and b_fr_nk and booger and ps are all working it and working it.

    It will be funny to see how they are all magically long when the stock has doubled or tripled or whenever it goes up. What frauds they all are.....but entertaining ones.

    Welcome aboard. My opinions:.....your timing is terrific......the fact that your AON order filled means nothing given its obvious small size (only 120k shares traded today).....ATM cannot be active during blackout period which is the last 2 months of each quarter until 48 hours after earnings release.....doubtful that Mad Catz has sold even 1 share via is easily worth a PS of 0.5 on this years revenue.....places value in the $2.50 to $3.00 range.....this message board is poison. We will have many answers in about 2 weeks. Cheers.

    Thanks for everything, Ex-Jim...

    Just to be mentioned in the same breath as jim is a true compliment. Thank you.

    I know you don't like many of my posts but most everything I post is my heartfelt opinion. I do not lie or mislead. Often I am more optimistic than pessimistic....but that is the ONLY way to be with a stock one owns, otherwise why would one own it?. Most stocks I own I seldom post about. But there are a few (mainly MCZ right now) that are sort of fun to banter on about. I rarely ever say when I sell. The reason is that selling is far difficult than buying and there are many more personal factors that come into play. So, just because I sell, does not mean you should sell. With buying, when I buy, you should buy. And when I say JUMP, you high. I do enjoy your posts.

  • The stockcollextion poster is wetting himself because he is short some shares and made a few pennies. Does he not understand that short interest is published twice a month so we actually know the size (tiny) of is position?

    Then all the loony talk about the ATM. Why do people think Mad Catz is selling shares into this market? The company is not that stupid AND they cannot sell when insiders are blacked out. If all the paranoid would simply look around at every other tiny company stock, they would see that EVERYTHING is selling off hard. MCZ continues to hold up better than many. AND even if you do believe the company is selling shares, is it so hard to simply buy 10,000/week to keep your ownership constant. That's a pretty easy solution.

    And who can forget the ps loon who keeps talking SEC this and SEC that. Does he not understand that by its very nature it is impossible for anyone to get into trouble on a Yahoo message board. This is entertainment and every user signed a user agreement when they registered saying this is all a bunch of hooey.

    We should also all remember that "it can always get worse." If a stock like HPT can trade at 22 or PNNT at 5 or TA at 6.x, or NAII get walked up to 11 then kicked back to 7, then MCZ can certainly go much lower (or maybe triple overnight). Right now fear is the rule and it is being driven by many traders de-leveraging AND fear of a banking crisis due to oil/gas/energy defaults. Facts do not matter, all that matters is perception.

    I wish I had not been off-grid today....perhaps tomorrow I can belly up to the trading desk.....which is my sofa.

    bh, You can be so silly, makes me laugh. You said..."Minnesota takes the title". Unlike the Packers, the Vikings have NEVER EVER won the only title that matters....SuperBowl Champion. This year was an epic failure for both GB and Minnesota. GB's season went one extra week but so what, both ultimately failed.

    So if you love every square inch of your girlfriend when she weighs a buck twenty, do you love her twice as much post-marriage at 240?

  • average sub-$250mil market cap stock! While all us silly people here are all over RB4 and other Mad Catz efforts, the broader world of investors know nothing about it....nor should they at this point. It will not become real until early Feb results are announced.

    Today is an awesome day of opportunity with MCZ and many other stocks. The most interesting 4 hours of trading for the rest of 2016 will be the last 2 hours today and first 2 hours on Monday. I haven't a clue which way the market goes......but if I was a betting man seems down seems to be the bet.

    Remember, if you go over 5% of something, you need to file. Cheers.

    The good news is they were proactive enough to work with their lenders and their lenders were obviously receptive and willing. Current stock price is truly a gift for those long as you are willing to wait 6 - 24 months. I added some.

    Investing ideas for 2016

    No I am not settling for 3.5. I am very overweight in HTCH shares and was very content to wait for 4. However, since then many stocks have gotten so cheap that I think (for me) it is prudent to cash in a few HTCH chips and move to some new tickers that I think will outperform HTCH both short term and long term.

    I might be shooting myself in the foot since I am passing up a sure-thing +15% in the hopes for a maybe +30%. By the way, even after selling some, I still am keeping the vast majority of my HTCH shares.

    Very true! All my nibbling with different stocks the last few weeks isn't doing much for me today.....but I really do get excited with these big drops in a good buying. I even think that right now isn't a bad time to shift at least some money from HTCH to other stuff.

    Condo in Florida by any chance? My wife and I might do that some day. We've looked around a bit but sort of waffle between a house and condo.

    How many more might you sell tomorrow? I might be ready to buy them!

    I think this overall stock market swoon results in lots of consolidation in many different sectors because (outside of oil/gas/drilling/shipping/mining) it is not based on the reality of the economy. For most consumers and most companies and families, cheap oil and gas and gasoline are a truly great things.

  • day for weeks now yet the share price stays more or less flat. Compare MCZ performance to just about any other small cap stock over the last couple weeks and MCZ is doing much better (as in down less).

    And it is bullish how the bashers have truly stepped up their efforts of late. I contend they are nibbling and supporting the share price. They know an earnings prerelease could come any day and the trading days between now and Feb 4 are dwindling.

    Looks like whoever picked late Jan or early Feb for MCZ/HEAR crossing will be the winner of jay's contest. HEAR sinking fast.

    For those worried about ATM, simply buy 10,000 shares every week. Worse case this keeps your ownership percentage flat as 10,000 is 1% of 1,000,000. If you want me to diagram that barney, I will do so.

    Cheers all, these are fun days for buying stocks. Bargains abound.

    The only time I liked the CLGRF story was when it was at 13 cents. I got out too early but would never touch it now. I took a look at MUX, I would never ever ever touch that one. Makes CLGRF look like a blue chip. To me, MUX looks like an empty shell of nothing. But I am often wrong.

    That statement is inconsistent with your claim to be long. No one would hold a stock if they believed the negatives outweighed the positives. Situation now clear.
