    Why the board is not considering a reverse split to bring up the share price to meet the Nasdaq requirements? Anybody want to weigh in?

    How do all the ladies and gentlemen now feel about thumping down my post with such vigor? Too much optimism is an enemy and a bird in your hand is any day better than two on the tree.

    Sentiment: Hold

    I see an easy double. Once we get over the issues that subdue the current stock price I see a double in one year. What do others think? Only decent replies please. I am here to make money and want to be friends with similar agenda. No replies to frivolous comments.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Looks like an opportunity like JCP

    Actually, I did double my investment in RSH also. Now I do not hold any shares but will watch where it goes and jump in for the second round.

    I did buy back at $ 8.65 the equal number of shares I sold at $12. This worked out as a very good and I am ready for the second round whenever that is.

    I think I know a thing or two about biotech. I sold a portion of my holding at $12 the other day. Will buy back tomorrow.

    A 15% drop from the price after my above posting still make you feel the same way?

    Sentiment: Hold

  • I doubled my money when JCP has difficult times like this. Those who can stomach some risk can get sufficiently rewarded if things play out like JCP's did. I bought some afterhours.

    Most likely before a major announcement there will be another dilution. Also to sustain this price they should be able to come up with marketable products instead of ideas. If no announcements are made in the next few days the current share price is not sustainable. This is just my opinion and please do not be influenced instead do your own DD.

    Sentiment: Hold

    How many of you would share my opinion? This bank will add about $10 to the price for every calendar year going forward till about 2017. BAC is one of my biggest holdings and I have added 40% shares to my position in the last couple of weeks after the results were announced. For me it seems like a no brainer considering the expectation of doubling the profitability in a few short years and share price should follow that pattern. Please chime in with your opinions. Thanks

    I am seeing $ 3.32 on Merril Lynch but why am I not seeing it on Yahoo. Any idea?

    Sentiment: Buy

    I bought these two shares during the same time frame. Never heard of either before reading about them in Yahoo MBs. What a difference in performance! RAD is over 129% gain since April 2013 and SVU at 6% loss. Selling SVU and putting the money in RAD seems still the right thing to do. Anybody want to help me out with making up my mind? Thanks

    Just doing a check on my prediction. We are very much on track for achieving the $60 a share mark by the end of 2013. Negligible catastrophe losses and increased policy retention it seems quite reachable. I noticed that the bashers have left the board. Would like to hear what others think hitting $60 a share before we step into 2014.

    You sound like an insider.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • It eludes me why people would dedicate their lives for making despicable comments day and night. We all sometimes feel we have been on the bad end of a transaction but often times we fail to understand the other side of the story. If only people could move on and dedicate their lives to something better (at least making money if nothing greater than that) this message board could be a better place.

    You indirectly called Allstate customers thoughtless individuals who lie down and take whatever. It also gives the impression that there are no other insurance companies that these customers can go to. Then does it also mean they (ALL) are better and many other alternatives? Just my 2 cents.

    Today we have achieved a major milestone. We have already crossed the $50 mark I have predicted by mid 2013 and marching very strong on fundamentals to the $60 by end of the year. We might even achieve the next milestone much earlier than end of the year. Lets wait and watch. Glad to see the bashers have found other message boards to vent. Good luck everybody.

    Below message was posted about 5 months ago when the share price was below $40. Since we are getting closer to end of first quarter I thought it is appropriate to check on the progress we have made so far. We are only about $2 shy of my target of $50 for the mid year. I have no doubt we are on tract for $60 by end of year barring unforseen force majeure situations.

    I cannot understand why so many guys lurk on this board bashing Allstate day and night. If you do not like this company find another company you like and leave ALL alone guys. It seems your purpose is not fruitful here. The company is going from strength to more strength with or without you. ... More
