    Moving on

    I think we may have reached a temporary bottom, but the threat of a secondary offering makes this stock just too risky. Hindsight is always 20/20, but I never would have thought we would get to this point. I sold this morning ~ out for good. The only other time I have been hit this hard was in 1995 when I invested in AMSWA. It dropped to levels that I just wasn't comfortable with - today it is up almost 100% from where I sold. Maybe VELT will be the same for those of you that are still holding. I just don't feel like waiting 5 years AND I don't know if it will be around in that time...

    Sentiment: Sell

    • I hear you and I can understand your reasoning; I never lament "people-and-their-money", how they best see fit to do with it as they will!

      In my mind, this has become a "lottery ticket", and I can see it being a sub-$1.00 stock actually, if the fundamentals have more to deteriorate. Actually, I wouldn't suggest anyone (unless they have some keen insight not privy to Common investors) invest more than a couple thousand shares here. It's just too risky, and I've seen a thousand other similar plays become "dollar-stocks".

      Good luck to you, and in my mind, this is everything I hate about Wall-Street! But, it's kind-of-our-own-fault, playing with speculative junk! However, I still believe in their business-model, and the need for "independents" separate from the corporate-ad giants, Apple-Google! I'm personally not completely giving-up, just waiting for possibly sub-$1.00 route, and not playing with too, too much money!

      BTW, pay attention to the huge MM v. Velt disparity! There's money to be made with that huge market-cap imbalance! IMO!

      GLTA! Screw-you hater-shorts!

    • you let the shorts win. congrats to you. its only money, right?

      • It's "not about letting shorts win"; It's about preserving capital and coming-back, imo, for the irrational exuberance downward, which, in my mind, is sub-$1.00

        That's not letting shorts win, that's letting shorts do your "un-real entry price" work for you! This issue has sub-$1.00 written all over it: perceived disaster industry, breach of debt convenants, and possible need for a 2ndary!
