    Something Positive is Up

    Who is buying the 10K, 20K, 50K blocks of stock? Someone is anticipating something, positive I assume.

    • ...their business model has changed. They're not
      just an IT project company anymore, and they haven't
      been for a while. And as far as I can tell, the "green
      bean" model, as you call it, is still quite successful
      in the IT/Internet world. That's where all the
      talent is...

      As for another offering, unless you
      know something we don't, I would predict a graduated
      offering similar to what we've seen in the past. It's
      basic finance - when the stock is inflated, issue

    • Boy if SAPE is a dog, then that dog don't hunt.
      Up 5 1.2 today, wow. I hope that guy covered his
      short position.

      And how can SAPE fall to CATP's
      level. CATP missed earnings by 50%. You actually expect
      SAPE to miss by that amount. You must be at odds with
      the institutions, who have been holding and making
      huge gains. Public at about 25 pre-split. Now it's at
      about 70 post split. So from 25 to 140 in 38 months...
      that's 70% per year?

      I'll take that!

    • ...with all the analogies and cheerleading you do
      for SAPE.

      Scarlet hit this one on the head.
      The business "model" (hire green beans, work them to
      death, sell them on the culture and stock options) SAPE
      has worked off for the last 8 years is dying. Jerry
      is the only thing proping the price up right now.
      Look for another offering by the fall as the founders
      further "diversify" their holdings before the stock
      revalues around EDS, CTP levels.

    • hmm? RTQ 70.75

    • I guess there was enough support at the low 70's
      level that when a couple of 5k size buys came in
      without any sell orders, th stock had to run up to get a
      good price for the specialist.

      Nice to see it
      holding this level.

    • I ran accross this site a few weeks ago and have made some good
      margins three weeks straight.

    • How come this stocks jumped $4 on 50,000 volume ? What am I missing here ?

    • E-commerce is the future buy all of these stocks now, they will all do well and there will be consolidation in the future. The e-commerce market is HUGE!

    • Sapient has grown revenues at 70% but earnings
      grew only 50% in first quarter. For the last five
      quarters, SAPE has beat estimates by one penny. Analysts
      project earnings to grow 42% this year to $1.05 vs.
      $0.74. In order to grow 50%, they would need to earn
      $1.11 and 70% would require $1.26. Don't plan on 70%
      growth (beating estimates by $0.15), especially over a
      five year time frame. Your assumption that SAPE will
      maintain market share may or may not be fair. Given the
      presence of IBM, Andersen and a multitude of younger
      companies that have recently gone public (e.g. AnswerThink,
      IXL, Scient) there is plenty of competition. Much of
      SAPEs growth will need to come from acquisitions which
      depends somewhat on stock price. Again, many things must
      go right, with low margin for error to produce the
      results you suggest.
