  • "...trough multiple"? What's that, a new phrase you just came across, stann? Got any idea what it means? Got any idea why and how it got there?

  • • Local Corps shares have value trough multiple upside catalysts like technology, patents, traffic and a lot more.

    • This stock is undervalued based on rival valuations, technology, patents, number of monthly unique visitors, gigantic number of queries, data-collection, number of listed companies, takeover potential and a lot more.

    • Local Corp’s shares have long-term potential as well as short-term potential as the end of tax loss selling and short-covering of after my estimate near 10 million shares (of 23 million) could create one of the biggest shortsquezze’s we ever had seen.

  • You are dumber than an anvil, stann, dumber than an anvil.

  • That is the ideal candidate. They will, however, accept anyone with an eighth-grade education. Canadian applicants need only show six years of schooling...

  • Most likely is after my opinion, that the share-price is in April 2015 above $2.01 and the owners of the convertible bonds will convert the bonds in shares. Number 2 in my ranking is follwoing:

    The financial monetization of patents has only started by one (the oldest) patent of 13 patents. And by the first trial by hundreds or thousands, who hurt these patent of Local Corp. we saw a very big success for Local Corp: A payment of $700,000 for Local Corp from Fry’s

    But this $700,000 will never standing alone – take a look at the speech of the CEO as the settlement was published, some weeks ago.
    ”We have identified hundreds of websites and applications that we believe infringe upon this patent and believe there are likely thousands more. We have set a clear course to begin the process of licensing this patent and expect to continue to report the results of these monetization efforts with greater frequency. Overall, we currently believe that a conservative estimate of potential future licensing fees that could be generated from this patent is $100 million.

  • And part of this S-3/A-filing from 06/11/14 is this very flexible formulation:

    But the dilution-effect would be very small, if it will be neccesary.

  • It is not well positioned and the dilutive effect could be very significant. You are too stupid for words.

  • Local Corp can for example increase the number of shares from 23.5 to 26.5 million = 3 million shares = $3.6 million and add 1.4 million from the cash.

    But most likely is after my opinion, that the share-price is in April 2015 above $2.01 and the owners of the convertible bonds will convert the bonds in shares.

    Stann, you constantly cite industry statistics, surveys and blog postings of growth in the industry. Why is Locust Corpse unable to leverage these various dynamics you cite to generate revenues and earnings? In other words, why is Locust Corpse losing market share to its competitors?

  • High return on investment? Surely, you jest, stann?

    In 2008, shareholders' stood at $20.3 million, including an accumulated deficit of $57.8 million. Today, the shareholders' equity is $15.4 million, down almost $5 million in six years. The accumulated deficit has ballooned to $109.4 million, representing losses over the six years of almost $52 million. The only reason that shareholders' equity is a positive number is because the shareholders investment (paid in capital) has increased from $85 million in 2008 (amazingly, this number dropped by $4 million in 2009) to almost $125 million as of September 30 of this year.

    Where is this "high return on investment" that you describe?

    Retail Analytics for an Omnichannel World

    Your store is probably among those that are collecting and analyzing masses of data about customers, products, and store operations to earn additional revenue and savings. The challenge of this big data, of course, is that metrics don’t mean much unless the store has access to the right data to meet your specific business needs. But when you do, such metrics become a powerful tool to create efficiencies and support your omnichannel strategies.

    Drive traffic to the store
    Through presence and location-based mobility analytics, retailers pinpoint the location of opt-in shoppers when they are close to a store location. With personalized reminders or discount offers sent directly to their smartphones, consumers are more motivated to visit the store if they are nearby.

    Counteract showrooming
    Retailers can leverage customer showrooming by providing real-time discounts and price matching on the shopper’s mobile device based on their location in the store. For example, analytics from mobile or video may detect high wait times in a department or category. In response, the store can alert staff to offer immediate assistance, or send a personalized offer to the shopper’s mobile device. This turns showrooming from a threat into a promotional opportunity, improves the shopper’s opinion of the store, and builds a strong long-term relationship.

    Pay per call leads convert at a rate of 10-15% while other forms of digital advertising convert at 2-3%

    June 11, 2014

    A phone call is a powerful thing, and if your business relies on leads, a phone call is one of the most valuable ways a lead can make contact. After all, a phone call is personal, one-to-one, and accessible equally to every demographic. There is a reason that pay per call leads convert at a rate of 10-15% while other forms of digital advertising convert at 2-3%.

    The value of a phone lead
    One reason the pay-per-call industry is growing so dramatically is that businesses are realizing the value of a single phone lead. Conversion rates are consistently higher for phone leads as compared with other types of leads. While phone sales is nothing new, the concept of marketers billing on a per-call basis is relatively new. As local businesses realize the value of phone leads, they’re willing to pay well for them.

    Mobile technology and the pay-per-call industry
    Another reason for growth in the pay-per-call industry is the advent of mobile click-to-call. Never has it been easier for potential customers to be connected with sales representatives by phone. Click-to-call is driving a very large number of high quality leads to businesses Less
