    • Wishful thinking.

      The market knows LOCM is in financial distress, so it will be interesting to see if anyone sees sufficient value to warrant further debt or investment.

      I would not be surprised if the new director was appointed with the mandate of selling the company ... more likely, it will be sold for less (not more) than the current price though. Presently, it is still valued higher than the $35M Myspace was sold for.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • but if that would happen, I am sure, that we will see an offer of Google or Facebook, too.

      Channel Intelligence works with brands to improve their performance in search engines and other online site.

      The site also asserts that the company “excels at produce feed optimization,” adding that its managed services team “employs unique Product Bidding methods to further enhance Google Shopping performance, helping retailers generate qualified consumer visits and profitable product sales.”

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • I don't hope so, because Local Corp has value between 400 and 500 million, which were not paid by an acquisition today.

      Maybe between 100 and 150 million were paid today, that are only $5 - $7/share, but the real value is about $20.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
