    Rovi Trade Flow and Short Interest

    Rovi is down approximately 6% this week on what many are saying is bad news, however per AVAFIN Trade Flow has been positive both days. Rovi recently hit a 52 week high and the most recent data has the short interest in the stock at .8%...

    I would not panic on the recent news, in fact I would call it a buying opportunity, Rovi/Divx are well positioned to take advantage of the roll out of phase two of Ultraviolet which should happen in the coming weeks or months.
    IMHO there is more good news then bad news on the horizon...

    • The recent news while not a reason to panic but definitely raises some cautionary flags. A big chunk of the revenues are from these patents and these types of decisions could cause at the minimum some delays in getting the deals signed. The acceptance of Divx particularly the streaming aspects will take time, now if they convince Netflix and others to use it as part of the offering Rovi will take off. Ultimately producing Rovi's future lies in the products they make and the success of those products. Patents while valuable now will expire soon.

      • ambiraja,

        I agree, however I think Rovi knows that their patents will expire soon especially the ones they purchased in 2004. It is there new patients that need to hold up, there is still a good chance that Rovi and Netflix will come to terms. Rovi and their end to end solution for H265's roll out, and patents on smooth fast forward/rewind etc... is just what Netflix needs. Netflix really needs some Metadata! If we get Phillips under license we should have all the major CE manufactures on board, Apple, Google, are on board with Rovi. I agree be cautious, but I would not want to miss this train when it leaves the station. With Ultraviolet ready to roll out phase two in the second half of this year, sale of the RES, Metadata expanding to 70 countries, Facebook apps, etc....

        Cautious and Optimistic
