Re: "What's happening???? A fantastic earnings report, very positive outlook for the rest of the year, a 16% increase in stock price in one day... and THERE IS NOBODY HERE??!!"

Hi Dipy. PBY's price action is even more significant in light of the fact that it's happening on a day where the overall market is taking a beating. I'm guessing that PBY's business has bottomed and management finally made the moves needed to regain previous levels of profitability and growth. (It took them long enough, didn't it?)

Best wishes,

I2

Yes, it sure took them a long time. But as long as they were increasing their dividends, my strategy would dictate that I hold the stock, which I did.

Btw, did you notice that the number of outstanding shares has come down from 60 million to about 50 million? There was a big share repurchase program last year, if I remember right.

Yes, I think the shares were purchased at $16... or was that $18?

Best wishes,

I think they specified a range. Like $14 to $16, if I remember right.

I am thinking of ditching one of my "dogs", i.e. SGI, and funneling the proceeds into PBY when the trading volume becomes normal again.

It appears that those who stayed away were the wise ones.

Yeah, it seems so. In any case, this has become such a small part of my portfolio now that I don't bother about it these days. Maybe when I have to sell it to offset some capital gains, I will see where it is. Not otherwise.

Best wishes.

FWIW, I did a little bottom fishing today at $9.75 today, trying to play the dead cat bounce.

Best wishes,

My mechanic friend is FANATCIAL about this stock now.

I argued with him at a party all night, note we were both loaded. He is convinced its a bargin, I said "fine, but it could also goto $5, dont try to pick a bottom."

I've decided I'll go long a small position.
If it goes up, obviously I was right in agreeing.
If it goes down, I can tell my friend how wrong he was , "thanks for the tip, ass!"

I love win/win propostions
haahhaa!

So, what happened to this puppy?? I started watching when it dropped from 30 to 20's. Then I lost interest(luckily) and I noticed that a private investment manager that I'm familiar with starting taking a big position in late 99. But this thing has still been going down. It appears to have bottomed in the last 10 days....

Is there any reason why the bottom fell out??
