I don't think it is as simple as that. In a bad economy, there may be more buyers than sellers of surplus and salvage goods, but in a good economy, there may be more sellers than buyers, but in the end, I think there will always be a market for surplus and salvage goods.
I think the key to LQDT's success or failure will be the number of clients they have selling and the volume.
@Semanresu. I gave you a thumbs up. Not necessarily because I agree with your conclusions (my position is quite the opposite), but because in this specific post, you are providing a different point of view with your rationale backing it up, rather than just calling everyone who has a different position "bag holders". I do read all the post, pros and cons, as well as other information to make my own decision. And I'm sure you do the same. Good Luck to all in life, regardless of your position in EXEL.
Something is screwy with the Yahoo info. They list 181M shares float and 57M shares short. Which is 31% not 59%. Unless, I'm interpreting it wrong.
I don't know, but it's down another 3% today after they announced that they will be investing 15B euros over the next 4 years to improve growth and earnings. You would think that news would move the PPS up.
Anyone have any idea why it went down today, when the general market went up. Also on higher than normal volume. It seems that when the market is up, people want to take $ out of TIS to invest elsewhere, driving the PPS down.
What is your rationale for FHCO to win the majority of the South Africa tender? Wasn't there an issue with FHCO under the last tender?
Maybe it's those shareholders that brought 3 months ago at $1.30+ that are locking in their profits before the Meteor results. If that's the case, who can blame them, a profit is a profit. But I think there's more to be made post-meteor results. GLTA
I would like to hear more on their progress on their acquisition to expand their product line that they have been talking about since they cut the div last year. Without that and specifics on how they plan to get general consumers to purchase this, I believe that the company will experience quarters with great sales, followed by quarters with bad sales, followed by quarters with mediocre sales. In my opinion, the only way to get the PPS moving up is to show potential future growth outside condom sales to governments or other health agencies. Once they ship out the last of the 50 Mil condoms to Brazil, what then? JMO.
I agree. Although many of the customers prohibit them from issuing information regarding orders until they actually ship, they can still update shareholders on their other initiatives, like their acquisition to diversify their product line they keep talking about or efforts to get their existing product to general consumers. Their investor relations person needs to start to get this company and product more visibility.
I agree. othing but good news this year. If they come in with another great quarter next month, this stock will really start moving.
Up past $21. Let's see if the PPS can maintain its momentum. GLTA.
If you have the resources, you may want purchase more and cost average down. I'm considering, but am waiting to see if it bottoms today. GL
I've always used Flash. Silverlight is a Microsoft product and I think hackers tend to always target Microsoft just because they seem to hate Bill Gates. JMO.
I just got a chance to listen to the conference replay. I agree with you the CEO is very optimistic and to your 1st point above, seem to be providing conservative forward guidance so that they never again have a quarterly miss. But to your 2nd point, the CEO just seemed to make that remark off the cuff with no real substance or plans to back it up. I'm looking forward to the next CC. GLTA
I personally think it would be better for them to remain independent, especially if they continue to demonstrate good results the next few quarters.
I agree. I think the PPS will move up when they finalize and announce their plans to diversify their portfolio. According to the last CC, they are working with a industry M&A veteran with experience in medical devices and pharmaceutical. Hopefully, the acquisition they announce will have synergy and growth potential that will drive the stock. Other than that, I'm considering adding if it hits the 52 week low in hopes of the bounce when the acquisition is announced. Good Luck.
