New Board member Tom Akins owns a ton of NOVCQ personally and via Talkot Capital 4.5M shrs of NOVCQ leaves Ch 11 which saved Sub Prime Novastar Financial Brand. Wonder whats up?
Fortress FIG Wes Edens, CoB use to own 25% of IMH and I believe has a strong desire for 3rd leg of subprime stool Non QM market. Wes owns 73M shrs of OMF (subprime personal + Car Loans that garnered him NEW SUB PRIME KING by WSJ). He maybe gunning for NOVCQ or IMH??
So, what happened to that acquisition Joe mentioned on the 4th qtr cc? Looks to me like it fell apart. I wonder if that's one reason why Joe wasn't on the 1st qtr cc. He just can't keep his mouth shut.
I still think we'll have a good year and the stock price will increase in the 2nd half. Until then zzzzzzzz.
Has it occurred to anyone that this exchange may not be for all preferred holders. It's possible that only a group of LARGE PDF holders who have been lobbying the company with an exchange proposition for the past two years or so. WE, my friends, may be screwed yet again. My calls to the company have all been unanswered. This announcement did not come across as good news for the company or its preferred holders. Your input is greatly appreciated. Bruce
What on earth is a "trust preferred exchange"? anyone? IMH has been on a tear but I may take a bit off the table. IMH manages the mortgage business about as well as anyone, but it is a real choppy space to invest long term in.
Thoughts on earnings? Anyone?
Whisper is out???
Looks like a tiny, tiny short squeeze maybe. Some shorts bailing out? Thoughts
Book Value per Share is up 421.9% since January 2014. Share prices are up 138.7% since January 2014. Acquisitions and organic growth in Non-QM lending possible.
I think the last stock offering was also worth around a quarter of its market cap. The stock price trended down (kind of expected) as earning per share would be diluted. But this time we also have a stock offering worth around a quarter but we see a big jump. If I recall correctly, I think the last stock offering was pre-announced while this one was announced once executed. Are they getting ready for the M&A several times mentioned by management?
If my information is correct, IMH wants to get into personal loans and perhaps buy a retail mortgage outlet on the east coast. I would imagine this is related to the offering. Anyone?
I'm suprised to see this large of a jump on the offering news.
I am concerned for IMH. I was going to dive back in, but it just keeps falling. 52 week low. Just more $$ to be made elsewhere. Any thoughts? Joe? You are a big fan.
I was going to stick a toe in, but I think it is best to hold off until this downdraft is identified.
Have not seenany purchases recently by the Pickups, didn't he buy tons at and more than 17?
Heard a commercial for CashCall personal loans today. They have been talking about it for awhile and I thought they would have a press release announcing this new product, Guess we'll hear about it on Q1 CC
Forgive me,,, but isn't this a screaming buy at these levels?
