  • King Digital: Largely Undervalued With Plenty Of Upside Potential [View article]
    Thank you for the ratios.

    KS, of course an investor can go through the trouble of obtaining these metrics as well. However I was suggesting that if you were already writing an article on metrics, you could have just added the additional details with a simple link (to verify accuracy); it would have been a stronger article to have a complete picture and compare apples to apples.

    Also, not investor has every tool and skill imaginable under the sun. Some investors have strong qualitative analytical skills, some have superior quantitative skills. Some master the technicals while others focus on trading activity such as insider movement.

    SA is a forum to allow investors to complement their own skills & their own DD with additional value-added information.

    A contributor's job is to provide their analysis and their skills. If your contribution discusses various metrics, it behooves you to be complete in your work.

    Author, you mention the forward P/E, TTM P/E & 5 yr PEG of the competitors, but what is KING's? A comparative chart would have been very beneficial for your article/analysis...

    And then he sold them on his hedge fund and swiped from them 95% of their fortunes?

  • The Next Disruptive Social Media Tech? Why You Might Soon Be ‘Yappn' With Your Friends [View instapost]
    Perhaps one day this company can get somewhere but between now and then, there will be plenty of Secondary Offerings, reverse splits and additional offerings. Someone buying today is buying into something that they will have a far smaller piece of the pie later on.

    IMO, best to wait until the company stops bleeding cash and starts gaining Gross Revenue Momentum.

  • Glentel Part 6: Normalized Earnings, Valuation, M&A And Risks [View article]
    IMO, I don't believe Rogers or other Telecom or private equity will come in here. However, they will scream and shout at the CRTC to overturn this deal.

    As far as the CRTC/competition bureau is concerned, most of the hurdles with this respect were passed already. So is it possible that the deal falls through? Absolutely? But is it likely? Not very.

    Bell can sell off the Canadian portion of Glentel and keep the rest (i.e. all of their synergies/patents/righ... etc).

  • Creative Edge Nutrition's Latest PR Stunt Leaves Shareholders Dazed And Confused [View article]
    Actually no. Growing MJ does not translate to 'Dollar Land'. Gross Revenues and profitability translate to Dollar Land.
    Growing MJ is but merely the first hurdle in the marathon.

    It should be pointed out that people (everyone, myself included) needs to recognize statements that are objective & factual from statements that are subjection and merely opinions.

    Prognosticating what will happen in a year, 6 months or even tomorrow is NOT a fact. It is conjecture and an opinion. Investors would be much better off if they took a mountain of salt when reading opinions.

    Furthermore, an opinion - by its very nature - cannot REFUTE a fact (or even a counter opinion).

    FACT = BOD resigned
    OPINION = BOD resigning is a bad sign.
    OPINION = BOD resigning is a good sign.

    GV, your comments written last night were your opinions (which is perfectly fine), however you stated it as to REFUTE other individual's opinions (or worse, refuting facts) and this is wrong. I'm sorry to say it but that's asinine.

    Alan, I think his point was that the primary interest is CEN, so who cares if the directors left FITX, they are focusing on CEN.
    IMO, I think current investors need to re-think whether these directors are competent. I don't know, but at this point I would have been happier had they left FITX and CEN... the company(ies) need real leadership already.

    Further to Charles comments - don't make the mistake of thinking that it can't possibly go lower than .001!

    Once a new BOD gets set up, don't be surprised to see a massive reverse split and then watch as THAT price drops to .01. And then perhaps a 2nd reverse split and that'll fall too.
    Until this turkey (FITX) shows something tangible for business-purposes, I can't see how in the world one would even consider investing or keeping money in the company.

    If I had no idea how 'things might turn around somehow', then that's the indicator to get out.

    If you have a fear of losing everything, why have you been in it all the way down?

    What I'm about to say should be the rational thinking here for all retail investors:

    If you do not know or understand what is going on, get on the sidelines until you obtain better insight into the transaction (do not HOLD until you understand it, because by then it will be too late).
    If you have any doubts or uncertainties or questions that do not appear to be able to be answered, get on the sidelines until you can gain some confidence (again, HOLDING until you gain that confidence will likely be too late to act).

    There is only one reason why one would HOLD in these circumstances and that is FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out), but there is NO shame on losing out on winnings. Be happy with your current standings and do not be jealous of others' winnings. People often feel these sentiments but try to control your emotions to resist this feeling. It will significantly reduce the risk involved.

  • IBM's Share Repurchases Have Held Back Shareholder Value [View article]
    Josh, another aspect I don't believe you covered is the fact that had the shares not been bought back, then the total amount of dividends to be paid out would have been ALOT higher (due to having to pay it out over so many more shares) and therefore I disagree in theory that shareholders would have been left off with a 10% yield.

    I`m guessing here (being too lazy to even attempt to crunch the numbers), but I think that the end result would be the same - even if we consider DRIPping... dripping only changes who the shareholders are, not the amount of shares outstanding.

    But definitely a fun excercise to think of and consider.

  • Air Canada: Undervalued, Growing Airline With At Least 50% Upside [View article]
    I mildly disagree with the notion that the US border towns are taking away flights from their Canadian neighbors. US flight services are too bare-bones. It is really noticeable especially with the seating. While I don't have a strong preference for any airline to fly personally; Air Canada planes have always been more pleasant for me.

    And with respect to foreign airlines coming into the space - I truly doubt we're ANYWHERE near that. Just look at AC's share structure and why it is set up like it is. Air Canada has class A & class B shares - A for foreign investors and B for Canadians. And the float of A can never surpass 25% of voting power. These are the current Air regulations. They are such that foreign interests cannot even own more than 25% of Canadian airlines (granted, it is in the process to be changed to 49% but that's moving at a snail's pace).
    If the government has been so apprehensive about allowing foreign investors to own canadian airlines, do you think it would allow for new foreign airlines to come in and take away Canadian profits away?
