Who is that maverick All Star?

April 11, 2008 – Comments (5) | RELATED TICKERS: SPH

I was going through my old picks, ending some of the ones that I think are bad or mediocre (and was tempted to hold on for them to cross one of the accuracy thresholds); I was about to end Suburban Propane just because it was a long time ago, it's losing pretty badly, I don't know much about it and haven't thought about it in months. But something reminded me that it's a high-yielding stock, so I took another gander at its numbers. Geez, those numbers are amazing. High debt, but it's fueling a 60+% ROE, huge cash flow, a 7+% yield, and so on.

Of course I decided to keep it. I'm thinking about buying it in RL. But amidst all the bulls, I see one All Star sticking out his red thumb, sticking out like a red thumb (sorry, I couldn't help it). Who is this guy? I wish there were a way to find out who that is. Maybe it was an accident. But if he is serious, and he has a good reason, I would really like to know what it is. He didn't leave a pitch, so I may never know. 

(Heavy, jowly sigh)

You can actually find out who is giving the thumbs up/down even if they don't have a pitch. Just go to http://msncaps.fool.com/Ticker/SPH.aspx >>go to the box that is called 'CAPS Players'>>Click on the tab 'SCORE CARD'>>click on 'Call' and it will show you the red thumbs, only 7 thumbs down for this ticker, and the highest player rating giving the thumbs down is 78.55.

I hope this helps you figure it out!

Thanks smith! I feel like an idiot for not noticing that "scorecard" tab before.

As a note to my other reader, madcowmonkey, that tab is on the regular CAPS pages as well, not just the MSN ones. But you probably already know all that.

that's an awesome tip smithtz, thanks so much! I can't believe I didn't notice that before!

hey fleabagger I wouldn't worry overmuch about one lone all star, some all stars I've noticed merely make a pcik to be different tha the other allstars as a hedge and to try to pass them in the rankings... 

 looks like rclute1 may be your redthumber (if so he lost his allstar ranking today apparently)
