This is a money making machine. Revenue, net income, margins, user growth, nothing but good news coming out of Elli. The is a best in breed, in a very good sector, one of the few stocks I'm long in this entire market. I predict this breaks much higher in coming weeks as more investors become aware of Elli, its been a little under the radar to date.
Sort of an odd trading day for ELLI. Very low volume after exceptional earnings and outlook? Great chance to add if you ask me. I expect this to break the 52 week high in the very short-term. Personally, I think some big money is trying to take the shares down in order add in big for the next run up. Funny, normally when I would be down 4% on a day in a stock I'd be frustrated, but I just have so much confidence in the near-term upside from ELLI, I just wonder if I should add here or wait until the end of the trading day to add. Just be patient on this one-- you will be rewarded.
They already brought it down from 27ish back in January to upper teens about month and half ago, now it has a steady climb. The big player seems like they bring this stock down hard and for no apparent reasons that we are aware of. Yesterday they had a great quarterly report, but today down almost 9%? Where is the sense in that? This stock is played around big time! Buying now would be smart, but buying when it was 18 or 19 was even smarter and that was not that long ago. So how does one know when to buy? It may go down even more. You can play the long game, which I am, but this is a frustrating stock.
while I have been very wrong being short on this one before I will make another try here. Stock has performed very well over the last couple of weeks in anticipation of strong results which the company delivered as usual. Revenue guidance for next quarter was also substantially raised but obviously margins will be affected as management decided to invest more into the business. Full year guidance remained unchanged from my understanding.
after hours the stock shows little activity so far as investors wait for analyst commentary tomorrow which will be generally positive - as expected.
Given the recent run, investor expectations for another big beat and raise quarter and the guidance for lower margins I would expect the stock to have a hard time moving higher from here.
Nice try Shorty. Heck, they even beat the high end of the analysts EPS at .25.
