I can only say that I have lost some and won some. I do not own this stock but I might soon. As a buy and hold investor I hold for a long time. I had ERII for about ten years and sold a few months ago somewhere over three bucks...and now it is at 12 bucks. I sure blew that one. This might be worth a gamble for 1,000 shares to start. I put it as a buy but I know nothing and only just read about it today. Right now it is roulette but in a few years?? who knows.?
Yeah, great company, great products, great management. I have owned for a few years but I do not like to see any company at a PE of 70! Nonetheless I am in this for the very long haul. Buy and hold the best.
The answer is to put the screws down hard on overpaid and pampered executives who basically hamstring the company by their inaction and indifference...they get their paycheck and we get a cheapskates dividend increase.
Yeah I read today that the company most likely have some huge stock buybacks...I hate that because so much goes right into executive options and does not help us at all....give us a stronger dividend every year and I will be happy. Contact management about this...it is your money they are spending!
