It was nice to see Reggie at the Miami show, shaking people's hands and talking to them about his products.

I have a hard time believing the company will fail when the head guy is that passionate about keeping things going.

I was serious not bashing its real cheap could be a good risk

The only thing that would prob effect Fountains longevity is Reggies longevity

You'll loose that 12 cents for sure. I'm an energy trader so our market is a little different, but the chance of a 12 cent per share company doing anything but filing bankruptcy is slim and none. The chance of a stock under $5.00 not going bankrupt is somthing like 10-15%. Drop to under a dollar and you're in the 1% or less chance of survival. He'll go Ch 11 and take it private. By by 12 cents.....

-The company's liabilities exceed its assets
-It hasn't cash flowed since 2006
-The last audited financials were unqualified but had going concerns comments (not a good sign)
-Last quarter's revenues were down substantially
-They have maxed out all the credit facilities available to them as of 12/31/08

Nothing really screaming "buy" at me. I respect Fountain and they make awesome boats, but the business itself was not set up to handle the current environment just like many others. Just because a stock is cheap compared to its previous low means nothing, you need to study the fundamentals of the business. See: Enron, Worldcom, and a big laundry list of others.
