They fired and hired and auditor. That will obviously delay anything. They may have to restate a few items. That doesn't change the contracts. There making a ton of money, and the stock price does not reflect it. To sell in the $3 range is complete nonsense. Do the numbers on the stock. It’s trading at 1/10th the earnings. I see a 1000% run in this at least over the next 3-6 months.

INVESTER-way to go selling out of the position today over 4 before that hit haha! and those DEC calls are looking SWEET btw.

anyway, not worried one bit, invester is right, doesn't change the story, this was generally already known and priced in imo. mm's brought it down on weak ass volume AH, nothing to worry about. We will be right back over 4 soon again. I've watched this stock for 4 months now, its all about manipulating the share price to short (like all day today) and cover (tomorrow).

don't fall for it! imagine all those people who sold for a loss under 2! yuck! well GL everyone!!!

nope, take a breath, frpt has been coming back strong. they are restating all 2007 and 2008 1st qtr. company and revenue grew out of control in 2007 and since frpt was poorly managed they screwed it all up and got out of the picture. today was nothing but a reiteration of the delay.

I look at it like we're starting all over. except we now have a billion in trailing rev for 2008 plus over 300M in new contracts rewarded to FRPT so far this year, and some contract work expired eoy 2009. this company is so not dead! [Big Grin]

also remember BAESY.PK and NAVZ.PK were delisted for similar reasons, check out their share price! so even if thats the case, expect another drop but still don't turn your back on FRPT, pinks seem to help these companies lol. it will come back with full force!

I didn't mean it killed it forever, but it did kill it for now. Would've been a nice flip, eh?

And, LOL, I'll never turn my back completely on FRPT. It's a sickness!

JUICE, PAL is putting out earnings after the bell. Are you still in? Considering the run in Platinum, and palladium, they should be good.

You really should talk to him. Watch the June $60 Calls on SINA. Bought them at $1.55, sold them at $2.05, and then re-bought at $1.40. Earnings come in tomorrow. If they are anything like SOHU, [Smile] Options are the definition of fast money.

"...Likely two or three companies will split the $190 million, since the military wants more than a one-model fleet."


FPI may have a great shot here...according to the DOD, the new model selected will be to replace about 200,000 humvees, thats serious $$$, est over 100BILLION. BUT they most likely will not chose only one model, so that means at least 2 contendors to win the bid. I think FPI and our Cheetah has a great shot!

LOL
First of all JUST 3 shareholders!!!! Second, and by far the best part-> "The shareholders filed the lawsuits on behalf of Force Protection, which means any monetary award would be paid to Force Protection,not the three stockholders."

Will the Army Buy a $70 Billion Ferrari?
By Rich Smith May 14, 2008
2
Recommendations

The $70 billion contest to replace our Humvees just got a whole lot more interesting.

In past columns, I've outlined the major players bidding on the military's "JLTV" contract, and to be honest, it reads like a who's-who list of the nation's best and brightest defense contractors:

Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) partnered with Armor Holdings
BAE with Navistar
Boeing (NYSE: BA) with Textron (NYSE: TXT)
General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) with AM General
Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) and Oshkosh
But as of this week, we can add a "who's that" player to the list of who's-whos: Finmeccanica. On Tuesday, the Italian defense and aerospace giant announced it will bid $5.2 billion to acquire U.S. military electronics specialist DRS Technologies (NYSE: DRS). As you've probably heard by now, DRS has partnered with Force Protection (Nasdaq: FRPT) to form the sixth big-name bidder on JLTV. Meaning that, by extension, Finmeccanica is now in the race as well.

Buy the numbers
The details go as follows: Finmeccanica has signed a definitive merger agreement to pay $81 per DRS stub. While that sounds final, DRS shareholders still have to approve the offer of a 32% premium to their pre-merger average 30-day share price. (Quoth the shareholder: "Ooh. Twist my arm.") Plus, as DRS is a sensitive defense sector firm, U.S. regulators will take a close look at the merger (before saying "yeah, sure," as they have in similar past acquisitions, such as BAE's purchase of Armor Holdings).

Finmeccanica will ante up $4 billion cash and also assume $1.2 billion in DRS debt. Backing out the debt portion of the offer and focusing on the price-to-sales ratio for the stock, the Italians' offers suggests a price-to-sales ratio of 1.3 for DRS. That's a bit of a premium to the usual defense contractor valuation of about 1-times sales, but perhaps justified. Analysts expect DRS to grow at nearly 13% per year over the next half decade, or about one point ahead of Lockheed, and three points faster than General Dynamics. Incidentally, General D also sells for 1.3 times sales, so you could argue that Finmeccanica is getting a good deal here.

With one caveat: Fair prices tend to attract bidding wars, and this one may be no exception. In recent comments, Euro-defense rival EADS confirmed that DRS was "on our target list, we are monitoring the situation, no decision has been taken." EADS downplayed the likelihood that it will make a counteroffer, however, calling DRS "not today a priority." Stay tuned, and we'll let you know if that changes.

Do you like to invest, but love to invest in stuff that makes other stuff go "boom?" Then you'll enjoy reading:

General Dynamics Outflanked?

well im not sure what to make of the conference call next week. I think its positive move by management communicating with the big boys... especially with all scandel surrounding the MRAP with BAE, and FPI having no 10k yet. Who knows we may hear something great or even see financials! Fingers crossed;)

what do you guys think, this is from moody last time---> "We are very aware that there’s a demand for the company to address some of the announced recent events and its strategic direction. We’re going to do our best to address that need in these remarks today and then to answer your questions. It had been our plan to hold this call following the filing of our 2007 Form 10K so that we could speak both to the numbers as well as to our strategic and competitive direction. As you may have seen we continue to be faced with a delay in the completion of our 2007 Form 10K. As a result of that, as I am sure you can appreciate our ability to speak to the numbers is somewhat limited. We will give you what information we can but we’re not in a position to give any additional detail. We will hold another conference call to discuss the financials as soon as we file our 2007 Form 10K."

COULD IT BE the ONE?

Nice news piece. The way it is presented, it sure makes it sound like they already have contracts with the military, though, which they don't....yet.
