  • Auxilio's CEO Hosts Investor Webcast Conference Call (Transcript) [View article]
    Well I no longer own it as the company has disappointed me in both there seeming inability to derive profit from their core even as it ever so slowly grows ( disappointment #1 ) and the seeming inability to score any contracts of significance re the providing of software on a short term non recurring basis ( #2 ) now they seem to be less focused on the core and are gambling on the yet unproven sucess of the software component. I'd watch out and scale back your position as the company sail into unproven uncharted IT waters which is highly competitive and crowded.

  • Tile Shop Holdings Is Undervalued And Has Lots Of Growth Potential [View article]
    Concept is spot on execution seems quite good. The plan of NATIONAL over comes all other realities. Rucker is obsessed with NATIONAL. and if you are a shareholder he is willing to let you get hurt so he can achieve his short term goal. Which is sad, as TTS is going to be national whether it's this year or 2 or in 5. If they went for 5 I'd be a buyer because the company serves a purpose in the needs of the US economy, they have a good concept. Bad egos! Good luck, I SOLD very high when I saw they, management , didn't care a fig for stockholders.

  • Notable earnings after Monday‚Äôs close [View news story]
    I want to defend the company! I no longer own the stock, I happily rode it to a very nice profit and then sold near the high, but the reason I sold had nothing to do with "integrity" or other new age bull the truth is they didn't care about current stockholders in my opinion they were intent on being THE national specialty retailer of stone or tile flooring and come what may instead of building for shareholders they were irrespective of EPS or earnings trends they were going to achieve that goal. Another distribution center penalizing curent earnings and next 2 Q f*k the owners we get a salary we will build it. They seemed self centered and seemed to think they owned the company. Well the bear attacks worked in conjunction with the self centered payoff. The company is fine if they stopped growing for 2-3 Q you would see a great company but that is something other than will likely happen. Insiders got their "screw you current guys, even if you were a believer from a year back." Such a shame. Come back in 4-7 Q and this will be an excellent company stock to invest in. I was a lucky seller. This is a fine business with screwed up management. Underlying value is growing but lumps will be distributed by management, on you guys. Shame on them. Vive la revolution ( or just give it a lot of time if you are that kind of investor. They need a big bad activist with a very large wallet !)

  • Blue Capital Reinsurance Holdings Considerable Capital Appreciation And Yield Opportunity In New, Underfollowed Reinsurer [View article]
    Thanks for the comments, especially the ones questioning the true valuations. I am not a regular insurance or reinsurance company investor so the skepticism is a welcome cold water in the face. I was sort of convinced about a buy but now other than the chart watching Im on the sidelines. I admit I thought the management fee was a very high piece of the net!

  • 8x8: Virtual Office With Real Potential On Sale Now [View article]
    The article totally missed the reason the stock has been a dog! I owned the stock and sold at a small profit after being well up. Better than riding to a loss. The reason the stock came down and the company is just doing a dog paddle to move forward is they hired the wrong CEO. If you listen to the first quarter conference call he was in charge of he actually said he was going into a massive international spend and that the payoff would be years in the coming, and he didn't lie! He said growth would slow and spending and capex would balloon. That's great if you are the new CEO. Fat salary and years to become the hero that pulls the company from the slump he created. Got to be a masochist to own this for the next 2-3 years. He ruined a wonderful stock, purposely. The Bard of Directors bought a snow job, they will get paid while you own dead money stock. Not very fair to the owners of the current stock. These guys ARE NOT STOCKHOLDER FRIENDLY, BEWARE !

  • Accelerate Diagnostics: Cornering The Worldwide Market In Hospital Lab/Microbiology Systems [View article]
    Jim , why don't you do a "sky ball" article on the potential volumes and earnings of the company. I know it might prove embarrassing but the folks who know very little re AXDX might delve a lot deeper into thinking about the possibility of owning some stock for their future financial well being. And if you do an article I think it fair for you to use several "per use" numbers in dollar sense. Considering the markup on aspirin or taking your temperature in a hospital I think it within the realm of possible that even a $500 per use number is a possibility! I don't know what the manufacturing of the machine can thru put in a year but I would expect a waiting list for the purchase by hospitals. This is NOT. A million dollar plus daVinci its an affordable must have piece of equipment. Do you know how many they can produce in year one after FDA approval?

  • GTT Communications' CEO Discusses Q4 2013 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    I watched the stock seesaw up to $12 and slide back again. I've been concerned that the company hasn't announced a deal which has been their modus operandii for years. I've been waiting since April expecting. Then I allowed it to be on hold as they did the foolish secondary for no seemingly good reason. They claim a robust pipeline of potential deal flow but no deal! I sold all my stock at $10.66 to $10.34 stock has slid quickly since I bailed out. I think something maybe amiss. This doesn't make sense to me. I'm glad I m gone seems like a good company, good position in their market but something doesn't fit right. When in doubt bail out early and avoid the rush! So long !

  • Dorian LPG: Big Revenue Bump-Up To Trigger Stock Upside [View article]
    I looked at the stock but have not committed because frankly that number of uncommitted ships hitting the water in such a short time scared me. No long term commitments, no long term charters could , NO, WILL leave the company in a potentially very vulnerable situation. A decision by the US government to not allow export of LNG will, could crush the company. I find it a huge gamble to think they can find good charter rates for this deluge of shipping capacity. If they can find good rates for the fleet all will be jolly and fat profits but any lag of usage could mean DISASTER. Better certainties are available in the wide world of stocks. I think its best to wait and see rather then just hope. Be careful investors not everything comes up roses. There was a seller of these ships, he's taken his certain profit the gamble is now HERE.

    Figured you wouldn't want to be on record with that kind of back of the envelope calculations, but I have no following or record to be measured against so I can say it. I should have thrown a tax component into the mix but hey it's just sky balling. Stock has formed a nice chart pattern. Looks higher to me , unless its stalled in the $23-26 channel a bit longer. If so $23.20 is a nice entry point! Good luck longs, sky's the limit. Time is on our side!
