Quotes

"Moving parties have not established that they may suffer irreparable injury if relief is not granted, for which there is not an adequate remedy at law" Robinson wrote in the order in Oberegger v. Gurr
Mr. Weinshanker, the President of Parent, said, "It's an honor and a privilege to be able to be part of the next chapter of such an important American retailer as Hastings. We will continue to run the business with the same ethical standards and values that the Marmadukes founded and built the chain on."
"We rate HASTINGS ENTERTAINMENT INC (HAST) a SELL. This is driven by a number of negative factors, which we believe should have a greater impact than any strengths, and could make it more difficult for investors to achieve positive results compared to most of the stocks we cover. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself and generally high debt management risk."
