I guess saying it's a long term turnaround in your conference call doesn't please investors.
My favorite MJ tune: "Billie Jean" which I have been listening to alot now. RIP MJ.
Good thing everytime I say I need to get some SIX, I never bite the bullet.
Speaking of which, it might be a good time to get some SIX. :)
Just about every stock has taken a hit the past few days. Even stocks that reported increases in earnings or beat analyst's expectations got beat up. A lot of people decided to take their profits and run this week.
Plus, although it makes no sense, supposedly people are nervous about the housing markets. Why every stock should drop because we're not going to build 30 million new houses this year is beyond me.
Why ios it that this company cant do no right?
A day at the park is what you make it!
6Flags peaked in 1999 bigtime. Wasn't that around the time Premier purchased 6F?

Toss that into the market's worst weekly slide in four years, and that's like heaving a Molotov cocktail at an oil refinery.
Six Flags employee attitudes and operations (well, in terms of the rides BEING open) are better than they have been, probably ever.
Unfortunately, parking is still $15, a large pop is still $4.06, and ride operators - as cherry and upbeat as ever - are still painfully slow.
Would I take my family to Six Flags? Hell no. Spend all that money, wait in lines (while CONSTANTLY being reminded that I can 'upgrade' - "why wait!" a HUGE TURNOFF and a slap in the face)...
I would easily take my family (well, little cousins, friends, anyone that wasn't a coaster enthusiast) to Indiana Beach or Holidayworld first (and I already have).
That $9.99 sipper deal/$1 refill ain't bad - when you compare to buying individual drinks all day. But you have to carry it with you. You have to wait in slow lines for your refill.
My sipper I bought at Great America was stolen off the Superman deck. Nice. The other one I have, from SFOG is twisted and won't stand up by itself (the thinner plastic is warped under the "Goliath" rubber thing) and the top - where the springy thing is, has holes in 2 places, so I get wet when I drink.
They sure do a job at getting people IN the park, though. All those discounts on season passes... all those teenage season pass holders - their antics, spitting, bringing 'snappy pops' to drop on the que while riding Superman (and various other rides that fly over people). I was no saint (by a long shot) when I was a teen (and still ain't). (no more locking turnstyles for me ;)
But babysitting a bunch of acting out teens is what Six Flags is basically doing.
And all this "my family comes here too!" stuff. With shirts like "I'M HUGE IN JAPAN!" and something about my "BALLS" prominitely displayed in gift shops - hardly family friendly. (although I'm not about sensorship, it's just hypocritical).
Seriously, 16% is a big hit if you're talking a quarter. 16% is an insanely huge hit in one day. What happened? Was it discovered Shapiro was replaced by an alien?
You still have Zoidberg.... You ALL have Zoidberg! (V) (;,,;) (V)
