virtual share of the changing economy.
This now Global X ETF message board officially?
Anyone care to comment why this particular Global X ETF has not caught on yet to retail investors? Looks like it has great potential to grow.
What's the deal here??
That is a good move to save face. Plus you can trade in the pennies if you have too.....
Good post Flatcat...in addition, the reverse stock split is to keep them listed on the NYSE. The stock must remain above $1.00 and they have been warned at least twice. This is essential to maintain their credit agreements.
You are in for a real surprise. Expect this stock to climb rapidly in the next quarter due to games being played by management and the market.
AIQ is scheduled for a 1:5 reverse split effective December 25. They are playing the same game than THC did the last quarter. AIQ's earnings per share are going to go up as is their price per share. One can assume from this that they are going to have a positive quarter.
What happens when the reverse split is history is that the loss last quarter of $-0.02 becomes $-0.10. The earnings for their new "positive" quarter go up by a factor of 5 per share. Wow - what a wonder job we have done manipulating the stock price and earnings.
In the THC case the PE ratio is about 50 for a poorly managed company but the executives are harvesting from the investors. See the news items of insider selling. You can expect the same situation here. AIQ executives than own buy right after the earnings announcement and then get out near the top.
This scenario will squeeze the shorts hard. It will be another quarter or two before the market catches up with the deception. If you are short this stock then you will just help them push the price higher. This is a game and you don't get to make the rules.
Based upon THC, I would buy after the next earnings, they should be positive, ride it up and get out. I do not have a position in this stock.
I see no way they can stay above the $1.00 threshold. Expect this to hit $.75 very soon. BK is very possible.
Yes, they have so much debt. The only reason why it is as high as it is because they want to stay listed with the NYSE which requires the stock to be over $1.00. They have already been issued a warning. Indirect sources have been telling me that they are behind on their payments to their dose providers also. Bankruptcy is on the horizon I believe.
Great stock to short. Looks like real value is around $0.10 to $0.15 per share.
It is when it falls out. They owe so much and haven't paid their bills.....soon the dose providers will cut them off. Short...
Just to much debt to overcome.
wow crazy volume..and i'm out!
the way i like it :)
You are slowly treading back up! Way to hang in there!
Yes, if they have some favorable news in regards to their credit situation etc, that could really boost the stock.
yep and i believe they will post the numbers today AH.
yesterday i listened to the q3 call and i believe they said they will have a few announcements for q4. hope they are positive.
great start lol
now i won't sell even if it goes to $0! they have the conf call this week and i want to see if they can turn this baby around.
That may be who is selling. One day last week, there was incredible volume. Delisting on the NYSE would send institutions to the exit as many portfolios have criteria set in regards to that. It is imperative that AIQ keep its stock about $1 a share to survive. If not, it will be sent to the penny stock listing and many institutions do not hold penny stocks.
what is your opinion on the fact that institutions are holding "so much"?
i just hope they have some good news next week
They have an 18 month plan to bring the stock up to NYSE requirements with evaluations done every quarter. One of the criteria is that the stock be above $1.00 a share. Otherwise, they will get demoted probably to the pink sheets.
i'm also sure many people just freaked out and sold their position and that pulled it down even more.
anyway...i still believe i should be able to sell and break-even soon.
thx again for your advise/info
As part of their agreement, they will try their best to keep it above $1.00 a share at the close.
appreciate the advise. will try to make it even in the next few days and just get out.
my avg. cost is 1.12 so this might take a while :)
Probably wise. It could go up for some reason, but their debt/equity is terrible and they are on the ropes for being delisted. With that said, the upside potential is probably not worth the risk.
i have a small position. looking to get out for now.
I can only speculate as I have not heard anything, but I would assume their capital requirements as part of their listing with the stock exchange has been violated. I say that because that is the next step in this process.
what's the news today?
