Increased, sales + decreased operating cost +, increased margins, with strong market share = future growth
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Hello imarat - i have been fully out since Friday. Waiting it out some - just dont have a good feeling here. Try not to trade off feelings but facts. But the facts are not that great. We may potentially see 2.17.
Going to fold here. Too many unknowns- I do not have supporting evidence and clearly assuming. Not what I want to do. Thank you for the discussion.
I beleive HTCH_Q3_RELEASE.PDF paragraph 9 first sentence is watered down. When did they lose Seagate in relationship to Thialand? What are customers advancing needs? The latter sentences are more price driven.
Never liked the medical diagnostic system..
I do not have a quality reference to cite... so my argument is weak. Price may have also been a factor, if not they would not pursue Thialand. However, not sure if price was the straw that broke the camels back. At any rate, they are most likely ahead on both accounts. HTCH will trade higher.
Please let me know if off base some, but HTI lost had problems with Seagate since they could not deliver at that time. Since then they are better than their competitor; also, with the Thialand production faclity can offer a better product at a lower cost while still turning a profit. HTCH needs to prove this to who is out there and can do so but needs strong support to sell and market what they have. All comes down to quality of the product and purchasing power of the customers dollar. Prove it, market it, sell it and cycle it.
Currently I'm 13 percent of your holdings with HTCH. I see this as a good, but cautious, buy in time if one can average down. Overalll the company is in much better shape than a year ago - they just need to get their footing. They need sales and marketing for new customers of the existing product all other is secondary to a point.
HTCH is closer than one may think... They make a high quality product and are not afraid to produce outside the US to increase cost competitiveness. They place funds into R&D for innovation and development. HTCH will recover and recover nicely.
Good move. I seen it coming in my program. Went with the consensus and not the technicals. May tank to 1.90 in sometime if things do not improve.
Waiting to get in a fight after school and the clock ticks down...
I sold around 2.96 or so on market (bought at 2.73 - 2.79 that day. Then again I have had my share of bad days too. Sure you did the same since you are in the know.. Good luck.
I agree with you and hope for a Zales up in the future. Drove though the HTI parking lot on my trip trough Minnesota and looked encouraging. I sometimes vist their website to look at positions and how they are hiring as an indicator. Looking forward to the futiure and optomistic.
Not sure where this will move....My feelings are the report will be good but rational side says differemt. I also believe one more quarter, Told myself not to buy unless there was good news but since the company will make sognificant gains in the future then will hold long without discouragement. Of course can barely see the writing on this screen again (so frustrating). As a long very encouraged as a short then the flip of a coin.. my money os on good news but backed up by future.
