The problem with the other people who send rockets into space is they charge 10 times the price. Elon sends them into space at a price competitive with lowest cost senders. FACT
Good post. LNN has now reported similar dismal results and guidance.
There is some technical support at $70 but we shall see if that holds.
There is another change now showing on the balance sheet.
For the first time in a long time their cash is less than their long term debt.
Didn't they forecast a significant drop in growth rate to be close to 20 percent?
In any case, their price:sales ratio looks far too high to me even with their prior growth rate.
Sure looks like corruption has taken down far too many publicly traded corporations over the past four years. Nothing can be trusted in Brazil anymore. Too much dishonesty, corruption, fraud.
It is the top story on Yahoo! news. "A loss of 3.8 million birds represents more than 6 percent of the egg-laying hens in Iowa and more than 1 percent of the U.S. flock, meaning "there definitely will be some customers that will be impacted by this," Northey said."
The problem shorts have is they do not understand how VDSI hardware / software combination puts a company data in "Fort Knox" type of firewall unlike any other security company. As a software engineer, I do understand.
This is the ONLY security stock with a pristine balance sheet and most likely to be a candidate for takeover by any of the others. Why would they want it? Answer: Because none of them have what VDSI has from the absolute access control perspective...... and that my friends is why major banks use VDSI technology. Several companies use this technology for their international server farms because it does provide that level of control
Learn to spell.
Learn to understand the difference between "loose" and "lose".
You lose money if you short a value stock.
The rope is too loose.
Goldman Sachs has CELG at the top of its sell list.
Not sure why but fundamentals sure do make CELG a good stock to own.
Earnings Thursday will help.
By shorting you mean you BOUGHT those puts. Correct?
If you think the stock will drop you buy puts (shorting).
If you think the stock will rise you sell puts(going long).
Quarterly report balance sheet shows accounts receivables down, cash down, accounts payable up. Not good trends.
Is there ANY country south of the border where company executives can be trusted to be honest, not corrupt, not associated with corrupt government officials, internal books can be trusted?
None that I know of.
South America actually started moving into the "European world" about the same time as USA but something went very wrong and that trend continues unabated.
Brazil is now going through the same corrupt baloney.
South America is "uninvestable"
Same same for Central.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Usually companies have reductions in preparation for takeover.
See news under VDSI:
"Also, as a matter of fact, VASCO has surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate in the last four quarter with an average surprise of 428.89%. The company is expected to post its next earnings on Apr 28."
Sentiment: Strong Buy
If you simply buy the stock and sell January 2015 strike price 25 calls for about $290 each, you get an excellent percentage just on those call premiums. If called away (stock rises above $25 and you are assigned) that is one huge gain.
$150 gain to $25 plus $290 calls is $440. 440 / 2350 = roughly 19%. Excellent.
