I will be the first to admit I'm "not sure", but I really don't think the medical measurement div is worth anything or is even a distraction.
In my opinion, they are actually very shareholder friendly. They answer questions via phone calls and via emails, take joe bloe shareholder questions during ccs, circulate during shareholder meetings, have a great informational website, etc. Not sure what else you could want. $5....now that is funny. Are we really beaten down that much that all we want is $5? I think you will be a happy guy.
But remember, Mad Catz today is much more efficient and relatively more profitable now than they were then. That sort of revenue increase today would result in much more profit. Scary more. Congrats on adding in the 37 range.
Congrats on the IFON move.....in addition to deploying some money on MCZ, don't forget about VTSI....I don't seem to have much company soaking up shares in the .16s.
It is rather remarkable to me that some people are selling today. I don't understand that in any way. If a person held up to and through the last earnings report, why on Earth would that person sell now?
That said, I suppose it is possible that 50k or 100k of the shares being sold today were purchased in the last couple weeks in the 37/38 cent range?
The one thing that is very different this time with Mad Catz is their balance sheet is pristine and in control of a very smart CFO who is seasoned in the business. Can you imagine what a strong uptick in revenue could do for this company and what the balance sheet could look like one year from now?
Exactly. When I was a little kid I loved Gilligan's Island. A couple years ago I bought the DVDs of all 3 seasons for my 7 year old daughter.....she loved it and watched them over and over.
Point is....what made RB great and addictive then will always be in style with a new generation or group of customers.
The other thing is.....good to see Mad Catz keep on moving forward and developing products and making deals and talking to people....in short, conducting business as if there is a future....because there is. Again, company doing ok, stock is still mortally wounded.
1. All good points jay.
2. You always give me #$%$ for "slumming it" with these sorts of stocks....yet here you are!
3. I'm glad you are still hanging around.
He has lied before and will again. Ignore him. There never was any tv report or story regarding Koss & Mcz getting together.
All in my opinion of course. Cheers.
HTCH seems content to move up/down between 3.70 and 3.30. Sure, the next scheduled "news update" is likely the Q2 report in late April. But just about any day between now and August it would seem we could get some sort of OIS win announcement....or maybe a series of them. Analysts continue to remain "guarded" with their EPS estimates even for FY16 starting in 6+ months. Valuation wise HTCH is at these trailing numbers....PS .4, PB 1, EV/EBITDA 11. And those trailing numbers were dragged markedly lower due to the money spent to develop OIS.
It seems at this point, HTCH is being penalized for having developed OIS. Isn't that remarkable when you think about it? It is to me. If Hutch had not spent the $ to develop OIS, they would already be nicely profitable and share price would likely be much higher......yet OIS gives Hutch the chance to double or triple revenue and even better for EPS yet no one is willing to "bank on it" yet.
So, when you look at all that objectively, I understand why we sit here in the 3s.....but I just think when HTCH does break out it will happen fast and the stock will double or triple in a matter of days.....and those not "in" will not get "in". I also doubt anyone will see it coming. Maybe it will be tomorrow, maybe it will be mid-June, maybe Aug.....but it is going to happen.
Then why are you complaining or questioning manipulation? If you want to buy shares either enter a market order or enter with a bid that is equal to or slightly above the ask. You will get your shares.
Oh what the heck, I'll bite. Why was my statement moronic?
There is only one institution that has more than 5% of outstanding shares. No individuals that I am aware of based on SEC filings. Until a person gets up to 5 or 6 or 10 or 15% outstanding, you really don't have any pull with the company or BOD. Once you are over 5% and file the form 13 then you actually do have more credibility and can maybe get a few things to happen with a company.
The other point I was trying to make is that these message boards are 90% poison, lots of bad info, lots of hidden agendas.
My last point is that it is fun to get into the heads of people like you. Cheap entertainment. Cheers.
on this message board. The ps guy (who must have a day job since he always posts post-close) has already gone positive so he has gotten his shares. Mei and chicken don't seem very motivated to bash so they must at least have some.
Good to see it. But it is only sitting there at .162. I know we are all wired differently but if I was going to buy 150k shares, I would just buy them. Put in a bid at .170 and get the shares and be done with it. That extra 0.8 cents is only $1200. The risk of not getting a fill pales in comparison to the lost profits when the stock steps up much higher. Of course, it is probably someone who already owns 1 or 2 or 3 million shares and just wants a few more so then it makes more sense to be this greedy on the buy side.
KOSS isn't buying anyone. Look at their financials. They are even a smaller fish than MCZ. KOSS is also fading fast as a company.
Congrats! You must now be at least a partial shareholder as your heart does not appear to be in your bash. Welcome back.
