    Trust me, I know the feeling. At times like this (market swooning for a stupid reason) there is no need to be a hero by buying a stock like RARE. It is definitely not a sure thing to go up and it could fall a ton. Why not buy a few that are fundamentally sound and very likely to go up......stuff like BAC, NAII, RFP or any of the really big names that dropped on Friday. There isn't even one logical reason why the UK exiting the EU will mean anything to anybody. Every business still exists and every customer exists. Sure, it might marginally hurt a few companies but it will also marginally help some others. All in all, a non-event.

  • micro must have bought some since it now behaves the same as ktcc.

    Again, you have it exactly backwards. If you really do own MCZ shares, it does not make sense for you to bash your own investment. No one is that stupid. Furthermore, your anti-Darren rants and innuendo on a message board do nothing to further your cause which seems to be "bring justice to Darren." If you believe an injustice or wrong was committed, then pursue through legal means. And if you don't think his actions are in any way criminal or illegal you could still issue a public press release (since you are a shareholder) and give your cause at least a bit of credibility.

    Switching gears......Maybe you should spend more time with your company if you actually have one. If your employees knew you spent all day every day posting on the MCZ board I bet they would think even less of you than you think of Darren. Perhaps you and Darren have a lot in common?

    Next Catalyst?

    Upcoming catalysts......proxy info in about 3 or 4 weeks......Q2 earnings report Aug 11 or 12.......shareholder meeting Sept 16.

    Also, Modern Round brings a bit more potential visibility to the stock. And ya never know when a big contract win will be awarded. Lastly, all it will take is for the right person(s) to decide they want to own several percent of VTSI and the stock will pop for good. The company is worth 3X current market cap.

    Not sure why you have such a thorn in your toe over the previous CEO. Yes, he obviously did a crummy job but he clearly was neither overpaid nor got a large severance package. In all his years at Mad Catz, his salary was well below avg for a public company CEO for a company this size. For Mad Catz to be able to unceremoniously dump him and have him slip away quietly in the night for maybe only 1 million bucks is a gift to all of us. Darn near free if you ask me. The company got rid of 40% of their workforce and it only cost them a total of $3million and that INCLUDES what was paid to the departed CEO. This sort of thing could have dragged out over years and ended the company. Instead, we got a new CEO in the span of 24 hours and were back up and running and are getting better.

    I think you know all this, yet you continue to p and moan about something that happened 5 months ago in the prior fiscal year. Get over it.

    All that said, I do not believe your motives are pure. I don't know if you own shares or not. I don't understand why you post or why micro posts. I consider both of you to be liars.

    OT....buying NROM today...

    I never do vey well with restaurant/food stocks but I took a quick look. Probably a decent buy. The one thing I didn't like is that revenue does not seem to be growing even though they claim to be opening hundreds and hundreds of new "locations". Either they are losing old ones even faster or their opening numbers aren't true or something. Just a gut feel that something doesn't seem quite right. Probably my own bias against this type of company.

    Just about each day someone tries to "paint the tape". Today they missed! ha ha. Usually when they try to paint down, the stock is headed up. When they try to paint up, it is headed down.

    Same thing been happening with EMMS of late. Today someone succeeded in painting it down on about no shares.

    Who are the silly people that do this stuff?.....Maybe the same ones that post on boards of stocks they say they don't own?

    That is not what is happening. The perception now is simply that overall PNNT business is improving (due to O&G recovery/stabilization) AND that interest rates are going to go up vvveeerrrryyyyy slowly. That is why there is strength in BDC's of late and why PNNT will march up and beyond NAV. You should buy back in even if you have to pay up a bit. Although, if you did sell at 6.50, why on earth didn't you buy back yesterday sub-6.30? Unless you don't like it longer term.

    Nice EOD dump

    Yea, that was a nasty end of day dump, tremendous number of shares, wow almost 625 total shares. That is a trade of almost $150. Whew, deep pockets, ssccaarrry!

    Thanks for the heads up on getting to 15 cents. I just entered an order to buy another million shares at .1501 now that I know it fill. That will take me over 5% so you'll know my name soon!

    You are my hero.

    What incredibly foolish selling, IMO

    Yep, that is exactly what should be done....but it ain't gonna happen because of Borg's past and maybe too much pride in the CEO/leadership ranks. If they bought him out at any price in the $10 to $14 range, the stock would be at $25 in a week.

    You are a good shopper. I have traded MSN once or twice in the past but haven't looked at it lately. Will check it out. 12,500 shares of buying STRI was me today! Tiny start...but a start.

    Amen! At least we now know why RFP was walked down...simply to fill today's large single buy order. Must be nice to have the power.

    Slow day so I will bite......first, not possible to get a real time update on short interest as the numbers are only published 2X per month......second, even if it is 70,000 shares that is about zero verses the 44mil outstanding......third, What are you talking about with respect to 1.08%? Thank you.

    staccani......I enjoy your posts and thank you for posting. It does help other retailers like me to keep the faith and/or learn the story. Cheers.

    As usual, you do know more than me. I just like it long term (years) and because it fell so fast from 6+ to 4+ it seems oversold to me and likely to bounce. If not, that is ok too. Like with much of my stuff, I simply wait for as long as it takes to sell at whatever profit level I am comfortable with.

    Switching gears a bit. It is interesting to me that traffic on these yahoo message boards seems to have fallen off a cliff over the last few months. Compared to years ago, nobody posts. I wonder if there are fewer stock pickers today than a decade ago? Sure seems like it.

  • myself as I was able to "double down" today! Will do so again if it goes much lower.....and gain if I must. Just a small holding for me but might become significant. Way oversold.

    Hey there DB....look at the 2 year and 1 year chart and also the daily volume. Crystal clear this will march up to the 1.30 range over the next month or two and then stall for a couple months then climb to the 2.50 - 3.00 range. It has already gone up 60+%.

    You talk about shorting, yet the short interest is nothing. It is less than about 20,000 shares. You can't even put your own money where your mouth is.

    The upcoming catalyst to pop it through the 1.30 resistance is the late July report and cc.

  • uptabdowntab uptabdowntab Jun 13, 2016 7:09 PM Flag

    My statement still holds (maybe...ha ha) til Friday to get back to $6. I added more at 4.90 today.

    This is one reason why no worries with NAII and many others, all have been slapped the last couple days.
