[...do realize that 23 May they did hit a 52 week low.]
gg, MOBL last earnings report they lost almost $20 million on $38 million in revenue with only $47 million cash on hand. Looks like they'll be going to the well sooner than later. It's a cash burning machine! LOL
Let them pump MOBL on the MOBL thread. Maybe their going to be underwriting MOBL's next offering...pump pump pump........deflate ;))
Think WYY goes positive this qtr or next.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
One must start somewhere. A few pennies at first and then... who knows? Didja reallly think they were going to blast off with some ginormous number from the git go?
Mobiliron may not play games like that but you do realize that 23 May they did hit a 52 week low. There is also no reason to think they will be profitable because of this new Holsted venture. I am not saying they are not a good firm. They probably are fine and salaries are in line with $396K for former pres and CEO; $357k for CTO, but stock awards a bit high.
Will they ever make a profit? Who knows. I think they too will be a takeover target before too much longer.
To me they are in separate businesses. Much as George Bernard Shaw was quoted as saying "England and America are two countries separated by a common language." So too are MOBL and WYY, two companies separated by a common goal.
MOBI/MOBL, same difference...wrong board.
Besides the market is now taking profits on the recent rise of mobl.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Kid, Chicom companies, like MOBI, are notorious for cooking the books.
It was trading at $20 just 3 years ago. Market no trust!
Of course, if you'd like to discuss MOBI 24/7 there is a MOBI YMB...take it over there.
This is the WYY message board.

Grail: Impossible to not agree with your thoughts but eeking a few pennies of profit per share onto the books by year end is not going to cut it longer term. Widepoint management has been promising an announcement for a second major telecom carrier for far too long and still zip. Mobileiron doesn't play games like that. They deliver as in today. Widepoint needs to deliver. When you order a pizza you expect it on time as promised and properly warm for consumption. Lets go Widepoint. Giddy up.
I see you have 3 thumbs up for the post, and very quickly. Let me add a fourth to Jin's, Jim's, and Steve's thumbs up. Just kidding.
I completely concur with your statement. It's been a long time coming and it will be a fine day when we break into profitability and those most responsible should be rewarded.
Time to get on the wood Widepoint. You are burning daylight. We need more news like what we got from Mobileiron today. Lot of talk about needing the Coast Guard to jump on board but keep in mind it is low margin business that will tie up Widepoints resources. That manpower and energy could be focused on higher margin pursuits. Komar spoke about HPEs plans being very aggressive for the future. Hope he's right and Widepoint can piggy back that aggressive game plan. Staying chill here but ready for some movement upward. Seventy five cents a share just ain't cuttin it.
I think everyone is fed up with the mm so why not just put in orders under the market. That's what I'm doing for now.
Mobl moving up. News. And competition for Widepoint.
Making Enterprises Mobile First: Deutsche Telekom and MobileIron partner to launch a new Cloud-Based Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) platform
Thanks for the refresher. Quite the list. Doesn't wyy have a relationship with SAP Afaria?
The MDM space is crowded JMO. WYY piggybacks on the Samsung SDS Cellwe MDM/EMM platform. They also can use the Mount Airy Group Ozone Server MDM Platform and I believe they still have a relationship with Intercede/RSA that they can utilize to deliver their PKI certificates to end points.
You are probably aware of the top 10 MDM platforms but just in case here they are:

Mobileiron guided lower for Q2 to around 37mill. There is a cash burn issue here for sure, but they are on the gravy train just like Widepoint. Everybody is at the watering trough ready to partake. May the best little piggy win.
MOBL needs $62M revenue with their 82% margins to cover current R&D and SG&A spending, they have yet to show any sustained revenue growth, hovering around the $33-$43M range for several quarters now. From Q1 2015, revs were $33, 34, 38, 43, 38 Losing $80M + the past two years and starting out with a $20M loss in Q1. Their CC was tepid for Q2, yet they did guide cash flow positive by Q4, not sure how they do that without cutting spending.
