I don't know. I just see 2 where there used to only be 1 when you click on analyst at Yahoo Finance. Since there are only 2, you can see the numbers for each since they post a hi and lo.
Tom, I posted here when I sold the vast majority of my shares. And I gave my reasons why at the time. I also never ever pumped anything. I state my reasons for owning and what I believe will be happening. 1.50 to 3.70 in a few short months isn't so terrible.
dump 100k shares at the market and only have the stock sink a temporary penny. Also nice to see a second analyst step up with some coverage and estimates of bottom line EPS profitability for Q1 (Apr/May/Jun). Also cool that Q4 will be announced late May (per SEC) rather than early June. Everything seems to be coming up roses of late.
I agree with you 100%.....yet I would guess that none of us (you, me, hopeful, etc) bought any shares above $14.
My two bits is that I think the stock is simply resting and most other investors feel the way you and I and b_fr_nk feel. None of us wanted to buy a bunch more shares at 14+, Yet all of us saw it as a good and timely buy last week in the low 11s. We all have as many shares as we want and are willing to wait until the upcoming quarterly report to add more if warranted.
My guess is Borg doesn't have any idea about anything but that is just a guess.
Very true. The one good thing is they pretty much said July through Dec would be much better. Tick tock goes the clock.
No, I will not sell. I will likely add more shares over the next month or so. It just frustrates me when companies fail to execute the simple stuff flawlessly. And by "simple stuff" I mean stuff that simple requires persistence and sticktoittiveness and bullheadedness which is what the efforts underway at Stanley are all about. They are not reinventing the wheel or coming up with a new iPhone or nanomaterial. All they are doing is putting together a factory to cut a little wood, apply some foam, some fabric and 12 trillion staples.
had to do was get a new factory up and running and make some sales. Not exactly rocket science. Now we know why they cashed in the LI, to eat through it with operations. Pathetic.
The 5 day chart is ugly but if you look at a 1 year or 6 month then this dip looks nearly identical to the last 3 of them. Almost exactly.
Oh gee whiz.....I just returned from a morning of fishing and see I missed all the fun. I really would like to sit down across the table from whoever sold. How stupid can one get.
Happy to see the PR. Explains things well and very conservative (the tone of the PR) in nature. What I love about this sort of contract is that it virtually assures VirTra's continued year over year revenue growth for the next several years. There had to be at least 2 awardees for this particular IDIQ because neither of the awardees (VirTra and Arotech, ARTX) has a product line that envelopes the entire breadth of the deliverables. For example, ARTX cannot do threatfire per VirTra patent and VirTra doesn't (yet) have portable systems. I think VTSI will continue to trend upward as people realize the numbers behind (and in front of) the company.
Upcoming catalysts.....annual shareholder meeting in early May, Q1 earnings release in mid-May, first Modern Round opening in late May.
I read it last evening, very good article. You are a good researcher and can present your arguments well. But what really separates you from most researches/analysts/authors is that you have the intestinal fortitude to act on what you believe.
now......if only I could get you interested in VTSI. I'll keep trying as they have grown into (and now past) their current enterprise value.
In hindsight it really is incredible how far RFP (the stock) had dipped. Thank heavens the markets are occasionally very irrational. And thank you for the RFP mentions over the years.
That was fun to read because it was sort of like looking in a mirror even though I did much of my growing up in the 1970s/80s. Between you and I, I will bet no other pair in America has cut more grass with a push mower than us. I will also say that I have piled many square hay bales in my cousins barn. Funny story, they all liked drinking a ton of beer at the end of a hard day making hay and me and my friend (who was also about 14/15 years old) were allowed to join right in with my uncles. A few times one of my Uncles had to give us a ride home (about 2 miles) because we were too tipsy to ride our bikes. Once we got our drivers licenses no one worried and they let us take our own car home....different times. But the most money I earned as a kid was $6/hour cash working on my hands and knees in the ginseng gardens pulling weeds, then picking berries, and finally pulling stems. That was big money back in the 1970s but nasty work. I always have been a great money saver which is why I don't mind waiting for some of my stocks to move. Maybe I would feel differently if I could earn 14% on a bank CD like I did in the 1970s as a barely teen ager.
in reoly to Hopeful noting how the overall stock market has become fixated on the short term (the next earnings report) rather than long term wealth building. I agree about 100% with that observation but I tend to think it is a rather short term phenomenon that will play itself out over the next year. I believe that much of this short term mentality is due to uneasiness about several things going on right now in the USA and world....namely US presidential election, impact of refugees on Europe, and concern regarding oil prices.
Sadly (for me) is that I believe if Hillary wins, the stock market explodes upward. I don't think Cruz can win but I think Trump might. He is an unknown from the perspective of the markets so that would create some volatility. Same if Bernie wins.....and (sadly) he could.
The oil price thing seems to be working itself out and is in the process of becoming old news.
Refugees.....that will be the new norm forever. Old Europe is long gone already.
All I know is I am happy that clearly the company is being run by the new Sheriff. There is no longer a "status quo" "business as usual" mentality. From my perspective, I would rather see the company err in the direction of action/change rather than doing nothing.
