We do grow sugar beets in several areas of the country.
But, due to drought, California sugar beet production could be negatively impacte.
Retained earnings are negative and getting worse according to the balance sheet.
DEQI days could be numbered based on basic fundamentals or lack thereof.
1. Overpriced. p/e ratio out of whack with reality.
2. Overpriced. PEG ratio.
3. Sequential quarters of declining revenue.
4. Over leveraged with debt.
5. Insufficient cash to buffer excessive debt.
6. Year-on-year growth too slow.
7. Company is less than transparent with no highly publicized insider activity.
8. Unbelievably optimistic guidance in a market where disappointment provides good reason for stock plunge. This points to management and analysts who know not what they are doing.
9. Consumers "been there, done that" with boomers looking elsewhere (boomers DO hold over 70 percent of the wealth of USA).
Other than that, good place to visit.
I have no position in this stock and no intention of entering but I always take a look at companies when the stock crashes.
Nothing in the above has much meaning since it is based on a 15 minute review of the balance sheet and earnings over the past 5 years.
I think DNDN is being staged for a takeover.
Usually these types of negative press releases happen just prior to a takeover.
Reason is to provide higher probability the general street stock holders are more favorable toward a takeover in a proxy vote.
Better find out if investing in stocks with negative retained earnings on the balance sheet.
OGNG retained earnings is negative on the balance sheet to the tune of MINUS $26,026,000 and getting worse every quarter.
Just curious about them.
What I've noticed about hedge funds:
--They recommend breaking up a company so they can borrow heavily against one side and using the funds to enter positions in other companies.
--They recommend acquisitions to benefit via synergies.
--They recommend spinning of companies to expose value.
Isn't all of the above just pushing money around in circles?
Note: I hold no position in BOBE because I do not like city slickers (like Sandell Asset Management ) running agriculture companies.
The higher the percentage of shorts, the greater the rise in a stock when they cover.
Shorts are your lovers.
"Short percentage of Float (as of May 30, 2014)3: 29.30%"
The problem is the book includes more than the market cap in intangible assets (good will and that unreal stuff).
The other problem is it has a PEG ratio indicating the stock is still overpriced by a huge amount.
PEG Ratio (5 yr expected)1: 2.51
Divide the current STOCK PRICE by its PEG Ratio to come up with a serious valuation based on potential earnings.
35.51 / 2.51 = 14.15
Even this number (14.15) is now proving to be useless based on this quarter's earnings which were a nightmare. Management needs to stop buying stuff and make a profit. Cut their own compensation by about 75 percent for starters.
POST was simply massively overpriced and it remains so.
The only consideration of downgrades is to remember three things:
1. Publicized upgrades / downgrades have an agenda for somebody.
They do not just run around doing them for the fun of it. A downgrade means somebody wants the stock OR wants to loan them money OR is short.
2. Upgrades / downgrades have a proven history of being wrong 80 percent of the time.
3. Downgrades come out when a stock is oversold providing more opportunity for whomever benefits.
Eventually the United States would not exists if they did than long enough.
We would, of course, all become refugees and feel a bit of claustrophobia.
I don't think we'd fire rockets because we'd be caught red handed.
The real question is how long can CNH Industrial keep paying its bills with cash dropping, debt rising?
No key statistics.
No SEC filings attached.
No insider information.
Misses estimates 75% of the time.
No Insider Roster.
No major investors who KNOW international risks except T.Rowe and, maybe, Invesco.
You can do all the work you want to but I have seen enough Brazil and China based companies whither into oblivion over the years.
If you invest in this company you need to read and understand its balance sheet, review and understand and trust its executives, watch for exits by major investors, read and understand its SEC filings.
No investment by me with ANY company too lazy to provide absolutely total transparency. For me, as an experienced investor, this one is too difficult considering there are hundreds much easier to do due diligence on.... for me that is.
Your going to love President HRC in 2016!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I think the poster was being facetious in reference to the source of the
