  • Tetragon Financial May Not Be Undervalued for Long [View article]
    I was looking to their recent report

    NAV $13.75 - Price $7.50 still a big difference.

    I guess it's all related to their incentive fee. The feeder gets more dividend than the shareholders.

  • Why Starbucks Should Jump In And Bid For Peet's: A Variety Of Ways To Create Synergy And Growth [View article]
    I think Starbucks should be worried but I don't think they are going to bid for Peet's Coffee $ Tea.

    Bart Becht from JAB is a clever guy and it wouldn't surprise me at all if he makes a bid for DE Master Blenders 1753 too. He wants to become one of the biggest names in the coffee business.

  • Market At Risk Again As Finland, Netherlands Undermine EU Progress [View article]
    We already paid too much to save these Southern countries is the standard answer in my country but also in many other Northern European countries.

    Partly this is true, but do we have any other choice? A collapse of the EU would be devastating for all of us.

  • China Nutrifruit: A Promising Company That Has Not Yet Been Discovered [View article]
    Could be a very speculative buy from here, depending on the funds they get from governmental institutions.

    The devastating news came when their concentrate juice and glazed fruit contained higher levels of sodium than expected.

    So it was not a fraud issue, but very sad news anyway.

    I own these worthless shares already for years, but it's all in the game. That's why diversification is so important.

  • Longwei Petroleum, Whoomp There It Is? [View article]
    Your information is from last year, if you looked at page 44 you could read that they implemented the necessary steps to comply, which they do right now.


    During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011, we have taken measures to strengthen our financial controls, which have included adding additional accounting staff with greater expertise and allocating financial and human resources to strengthen our internal control structure. We have contracted with an outside consulting firm to assist the Company in our Sarbanes Oxley (“SOX”) compliance and internal controls. This firm has helped guide the company in its SOX compliance, including mapping, testing, analysis and assessment. The Company has hired an internal person to work directly with the external consultants regarding internal controls. This person’s experience included four years of audit and business advisory work with Ernst & Young and four years of experience with an affiliate of BDO. The Company has also contracted with an outside consultant to work with our accounting staff on our month-end, quarter-end and year-end closings and procedures. This person has seven years experience in audit and financial reporting, including four years of experience with Ernst & Young.

    These remediation efforts are designed to address the material weakness identified in our internal controls for financial reporting and to improve and strengthen our overall control environment. We believe these actions will prevent the material weakness from recurring. Our management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, does not expect that disclosure controls or internal controls over financial reporting will prevent all errors, even as the aforementioned remediation measures are implemented and further improved to address all deficiencies. The design of any system of controls is based in part upon certain assumptions about likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions.

    The implementation of our remediation plan will require substantial expenditures, could take a significant period of time to complete, and could distract our officers and employees from the operation of our business. However, our management believes that these remediation efforts will be completed by the end of the Company’s fiscal year ended June 30, 2012.

    Joe, we all know you don't like the company and the CEO, so probably you are short. This is great news even bigger than the closing of the Huajie asset acquisition in the nearby future.

    A legit company with legitimate revenues is all we need to hear.

    Internal controls are effective page 13.

    Management assessed the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting as of March 31, 2012. In making this assessment, management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission in Internal Control-Integrated Framework. Based on our assessment, management concluded that, as of March 31, 2012, the Company's internal control over financial reporting is effective based on those criteria.

  • 2 Pharmaceutical Companies Trading Below Net Cash - Part IV [View article]
    I am also long WKBT and CBP but sentiment has to change towards Chinese pharmaceuticals before they rock. If prices stay at current levels both companies will be snapped up by management (MBO) or private equity.

    I am interested to take a stake but what worries me is the probability of a net profit the coming years.
