There is a lot of market chatter about a general pullback. Many funds/MM are selling certain holdings to get a piece of Alibaba. Selling off certain Chinese stocks in favor of it. So i would say yes, it's related. Don't know how much effect, or if there are other factors, but it is a factor.
I was curious if anyone had any info on the next dividend. I know they are irregular, but their history suggests they usually announce one in September. Last one was paid in october of 2013. I can't find any announcements anywhere for any upcoming one.
I think it was only the earnings, but that is ok. The reason why the stock is so low is because of debt concerns, as well as profitability concerncs. If they beat earnings consistently, and can pay of their debt, the stock will improve dramatically. I should have said, actually, if teu can show that they can pay down debt, and be profitable, then the pps will grow tremendously. Might take a few quarters for sustained pps increases though.
Me too. It's pretty rough. I been in for a year, average price at $10. I'm not terribly bothered by the daily fluctuations, but it is hard. It makes sense to me that this company will grow a great deal over the next few years. I'm not an analyst, but imo the price could be 20, and it would be a great deal. I know the company is still speculation, it's just in a good spot with a ton of cash, expanding customers, and beginning to ship product. Very confusing. It's frustrating to not see the trading energy of some of the more popular startups or high growth companies, i.e. tsla, kndi.
They didn't release the data, and there's no news of up-listing to the NASDAQ. Currently, it's OTC, and there is no release of data. Only news is the addition of one doctor. So, I don't get where everyone's hate is coming from, half the people are just insulting, the rest are making up #$%$, like you. None of what you said I can substantiate anywhere.
I read the news bulletin, but wasn't personally impressed. If there was something about being upgraded to the NASDAQ, I missed that. Only thing of interest seemed to be a new doctor joining the company. I've owned a small portion of shares for years. No real change in over 2 years. So, no I don't think i'm an airhead, I wasn't impressed with the news bulletins though. Not enough to make me buy more, or to justify a 10% upswing. But me and the market don't always think the same thing.
Dude, plz shut up. You post like, every ten minutes pumping this stock. I am personally long, but you're just wasting space on the board. Go do something else. This should have 1 to 2 long message thread a day, maybe more on days news come out. This thing is full of pumper/bashers/spammers. Dont be one. If you're long, just be quiet and wait plz.
I was actually in another msg board, and someone posted there pumping this stock. I decided to take a look because, why not? I was looking at their financials, and noticed some interesting things.
1.5 billion in revenues, and only a 14 million market cap. So they are making tons of money. However, besides that, not a ton of positives...
They have a lot of debt. we're talking 29/1 debt to asset ratio. Despite their huge revenue, they are losing money, which everyone probably knows, given that's pretty easy to see on the profile.
The rest of the financials you can look up yourself, but here's my questions:
Given the staggering amount of revenue, why is the market cap so low?
Given the staggering amount of revenue, why are they losing money, or not paying off debt?
What is wrong with the company?
I like undervalued companies that should appreciate, but I'm also wary of value traps that keep sinking lower?
If you are short, why are you short. If you you are long, why are you long? What's the story here?
That is discouraging. I didn't read that before buying. I was looking at the briefer reports. Oh well, I dont have a great deal invested, and I'm down right now. May as well ride it out. :/
Thank you for your reasonable response. I've been accosted by trolls on other boards at times. It's good to hear a response like that.
Hey guys, I've been doing some research and looking around trying to make a good dividend portfolio. Looking for a balanced spread between safer dividend, but lower yield, and mid to high yield dividends. This company popped up my radar, and it honestly looked too good to be true. But it has steady dividends for the last 4 quarters, is a fairly new company...I'm sure there are differeing opinions out there. Just trying to decide if this one should be in the portfolio. Dividends are nice, but if the price drops 50%, or the divi is cut, or both, well that would be a sad day.
Obviously no one knows the future. I'm exhausting my online resources for the company research. Just looking for advice. Thanks
I don't have a position in Sears. I have been following them for a few months, looked at their history, their recent income statements...it seems they need to sell off assets to stay in business. Is anyone here long, and if so why? Don't need to tell me if your short, I already know. Anyway, what are your thoughts? The EPS looks really bad now, and continually gets worse. What is your best case scenario?
There are companies, like TSLA, who make no profit/negative cash flow, but still skyrocketed. Not saying this is TSLA, but it's all about belief and demand.
Growing sales, earnings, reducing debt, and expansion into mobile market...and the price being driven down 50%. I wonder if they're driving price down so they can buy low for the pop during next earnings.
Great! I found the link. Very encouraging. I know they are a ways from profitability, but this is encouraging to see, and I'm sure they're on their way. Thanks for the link.
In terms of value, this stock should be much higher. According to yahoo, the EPS for ALSK is 2.65. They canceled thier divi to build infrastructure for high speed internet, they've done it, and now they are reaping the benefits. I know they've got some debt, but jesus, I would buy this stock at 5$ cause it would still seem like a bargain. I have no idea why it is so low. In all seriousness, does anyone know?
