That's basically all I think it would need for confidence to be restored - preferably an announcement of partnership with a new airline would be great.
Partnerships aside, isn't there value that AIM brings to the table from a data analytics perspective? I want to see them become an IT service company -- ie setting up, running and managing rewards programs for diff companies
:idea: :) :lol: :razz: :D

Sold this turd yesterday thinking it will keep on dropping. Only lost $100 but shouldnt have waited this long.

I don't see a bottom on this thing. I think they're done.

Thanks, great analysis! I would also rely on the status quo for Aeroplan. Like you said market is saturated and we don't have any real winners in Canada that would give enough incentive for folks to switch. I think it will be a long road but I could see the price double on this stock within 6 months if they announce a few partnerships.
This will be a multi-bagger if they announce a new partner with the possibility of retaining the dividend. In the absence of that, I strongly believe the dividend will be cut - probably entirely. I believe they can survive, even without another partner but cash flow will be severely reduced. You have a significantly larger margin of safety with AIM's preferred shares, which only cost them $17 million a year in dividend expense, compared to well over 100 mill for the commons. The preferred dividends are cumulative and cutting it will also impair AIMs ability to access the credit markets and to issue any new preferred shares - so they will avoid this if at all possible.

So you sold because you saw the unrealized $ loss of the equivalent of a dinner for two, took the loss and now you think this company is 'done'. Excellent research and analysis Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes

Sure...

Today I would have been down $500 if I didn't sell yesterday. That is not a dinner for two anymore. Doesn't take a genius to see it's a very risky investment that's spiralling down at the moment. There is really nothing positive in the near future for the company.

Sorry, putting emotional decisions into 'black and white' perspective sometimes makes us see the forest for the trees.

So what changed from the time you bought it the other day to today, other than the price dropping? :eek:

IOW, it looks like you made a decision based on a gamble instead of one based on anything related to investing. You bet red and it came up black,.

Precisely. Timing an absolute bottom is a fool's game and most likely better odds at the casino.

Price down to $3.09
Averaging down? Or just holding from initial purchase?
