Stocks lately are going up dramatically or of course the opposite based on news good and/or bad. This is the mentality of traders in these times. Call it greed, or panic, but all news stocks are jumping like crazy. BBRY, HLF, I can list a top of them, the good thing is you can play the opposite side of the panic and make alot of money. This one was a really good one to play. Stock will be at $2.20 soon. Thats a nice percentage gain from here.
This is the kind of promotional stuff that got us in trouble in the first place. It's OK to remain positive, but firing your CEO and half your board is reason enough for a 30% drop in value. If you look closely at what the company is saying:
200-250 placements for 2013; That averages to 50 - 62 placements/qtr, which means they're expecting placement growth to be flat for all of 2013.
2013 Rev of 10 - 15 Million down from the 20 million estimated before
This is a company that's got a fairly austere plan to profitability, they don't have a lot of leeway in cash. Bringing placement and revenue numbers down like this makes things look much tighter.
I'm holding, but the price drop was justified due to highly increased risk.
Revenue at the low end of the new estimate range is one heck of a cut. Of course they are excluding europe, which is smart as there is just very little or nothing there. They will need more money. it's just a question of how that raise it. They won't be able to wait until the end of the year, even if cash lasts that long. Bet we hear something sooner, within 2-3 quarters. Stock price is indicative of all that, and the personnel change.
