    They are certainly big enough to buy almost anyone they want.
    Who do you think Google should buy and why?

    But extremely hard to hold long enough to profit from it... I've eaten here, seen friends eat there and know that everyone enjoyed the quality for the price... They are certainly off to a good start... But stocks like this take awhile to really take off. It's more likely that everyone here will have sold and be long gone before this one starts to double, triple and beyond... You have to hold, dollar cost average and eventually remember why you're holding to win in the stock market. Good luck to all! If you're here for a short term pop then you may want to look elsewhere but if you have the patience well see you in four or five years with some potentially great profits :)

    Sentiment: Hold

    I believe this is just the start of a very long up trend but will see a lot of volatility along the way.

    I've held many a stock forever only to see a day like this and sell way too soon.

    If you are a long term holder and feel the need to get out then you might want to do so in thirds and plan to keep something for the long term.

    There are a lot of companies that need to start seriously looking at replacing petro based products with biodegradable ones and Metabolix makes the best product on the market... This could be the first of many such deals.

    Good luck to all investors and congrats to the insiders who are becoming rich off their recent investments.

    Good luck to all investors and all GameLoft employees (and thank you for several awesome new games)!!!

  • beprepared4infinityandbeyond by beprepared4infinityandbeyond Jan 16, 2015 8:07 PM Flag

    On the cheap!!! The needle didn't even move when you bought your blocks so you must know what you're doing...

    These folks have been busy busy busy porting many of their top games to multiple platform and keeping their existing games fresh so as to keep and attract new players. Personally I think the market is truly underestimating them so I consider the fire sale that is their stock to be one of the best investments on the market. Time will tell if I’m right...

    The next post contains some notes from the Q3 2014 earnings release that make me believe that 2015 could be a very big year for GameLoft.

    Enjoy!!

    Another 8000 shares traded today and all at one strike price; just like yesterday. IMHO, it appears that someone is shuffling shares from one account to another.

  • beprepared4infinityandbeyond by beprepared4infinityandbeyond Jan 14, 2015 2:06 PM Flag

    This stock has traded very few shares in the last three months but
    yesterday it traded 25000 shares
    and today it has traded 7000 shares thus far
    these numbers are rather unusual for this sleepy adr
    Probably someone repurchasing shares sold as a tax loss at the end of last year
    Or someone looking forward to Q4 earnings; expected late this month or early next
    Of course, only time will tell...

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Which software company (ies) could Facebook purchase that would become good suppliers for their Oculus Rift system? I personally think the makers of Asphalt 8 and Spiderman Unlimited would be a good fit, but I'm biased...

    The Sierras are getting snow today

    Californians hiding inside and turning up the heat

    Winter is finally here and many are turning up the heat

    What does that mean for nat gas suppliers?

    IMHO, this is coming very close to a strong buy and it's just a matter of time before analyst tell you to buy because they already have

    Strong buy ???

    You decide.... :)

    And will certainly be talked about during the CC: "InvenSense, Inc., the leading provider of intelligent sensor solutions, announced the 6-axis ICM-20645 MEMS SoC"

    We are talking many features for use by everything in the Internet of Everything and very low energy requirements.

    Analysts and potential customers should eat this stuff up and many will take notice!!!

    Here's to Infinity and Beyond!

    May all your dreams come true...

    A few people in the United States catch the Ebola Virus and related investments soar beyond reason, yet I suspect it is more likely that contaminated food is a greater risk to the average American.

    This company is just like many of the companies trying to build vaccines for the Ebola virus, but the big difference is they have products that work, they have products that are selling well and they have products that are definitely the solution to finding and eliminated contaminated food supplies.

    IMHO, this is one of the best investments on the market right now because you’re getting a company that worth more than its current price yet it could also soar beyond reason at any minute.

    Time well tell…

    Cramer will remind many in after hours that Yahoo should be much higher based upon their shares in Baba and the rest of the company has value too.

    I think we haven't heard because Apple isn't using their technology; probably because water damage ruins a lot of phones and Apple gets a steady stream of revenue from replacements. I talked to someone this weekend who worked in a lab with treated products and he claimed to cost to treat during production was around 15 cents (not sure if I believe that or not), but companies like Apple don't use the tech because replacements add to sales... FYI, HzO's web site now brags about over a million products being treated in the last year and continuing addition of new customers. They are going to be fine with or without Apple. It's just Apple tends to be a very good win for their suppliers.

    Could someone buy it on the cheap just to get hold of their Alibaba shares?

    With the current pricing range the valuation of Alibaba should come in around $165 Billion.

    The press is saying Yahoo owns a 24% stake in Alibaba which should be valued at (0.24 * $165B) which equates to $39.6B… Hence at the expected valuation of Alibaba the rest of Yahoo is valued at approximately $2.73B (Current Mkt Cap – Yahoo’s stake in Alibaba).

    IMHO, Yahoo is highly undervalued at $2.73B so Alibaba should consider buying Yahoo for two to three times that… Think about it, the current valuation of everything Yahoo (minus Alibaba) is less than three billion. Companies like Google eat small companies like that for lunch.

    FYI, I am a buyer at these levels and why not? The demand for everything Alibaba isn't about to go down between now and the IPO

    Why are they the ones that never seem to do much?

    It’s interesting that some of the most boring companies trade around three dollars. Sprott was brought to my attention because they have significant investment in land and land almost always pays off in the long run, but they've been stuck near or at $3 for a fairly long time now.

    For those who like investing in three dollar stocks and don’t might a bit of speculation then I’d suggest you take a look at Tiny; otherwise known as Harris & Harris. They invest like a venture capital company which indirectly give investors the opportunity to participate in several pre IPO companies. If you have ever watched a set of pre IPO companies you notice that lots of them don't make it but the ones that do can create very big returns for their investors. Tiny hasn't exactly been rewarding its shareholders but IMHO that could change over the next few years and when it does their investors should be handsomely rewarded.

    If you are or have considered diversifying into other three dollar stocks then I highly recommend a visit to Tiny’s website at hhvc and reviewing their investment focus, current portfolio and blog. Their 15% investment in HzO (waterproof nano technology) is what really got me interested, but they have many interesting investments.

    FYI, some of Tiny's long term investors have given up or talk like they have. Personally I've found that the point when I’m ready to give up on something is often the point when the best opportunities exist.

    Sorry for rambling on about another company. I really like Sprott and will continue to hold them as a long term investment in both mine and my son’s college portfolios (one he won't need for several years) but I like diversifying and feel Tiny is a good match.

    Good luck - bp

    I guess that I'm the blind leading the blind so give this a try: Pull up the chart for the last thirty days and explain the 13.33% increase in share price. Ahhhhh, hmmmmm, that chart shows more strength than usual; in fact, it shows a slowly improving share price.

    You may not realize it but their 15% ownership in HzO could turn into a very big deal. There are a lot of things in this world that can benefit from being waterproof. Everything from small medical devices that go into your body to better weapons for the military... Cameras, Clothing, Tents, Watches... Everything created for the internet of everything and much much more. The fact that HzO's customer base has started to take off in the last year is a very very good thing; especially for 15% owners. I imagine that we'll see them IPO in the next few years and that will be good for Harris investors.

    HzO is one example of a smart investment that has great long term potential. If they ink a deal with Apple (and who knows they might have already) then we'll see interest in their technology grow exponentially.

    This is one example of the Harris Group making intelligent investments for the sake of their investors. Investments that you and I can't make on our own because we don't have access.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    More strength lately?

    Perhaps:

    1) Harris & Harris Group Portfolio Company Enumeral Biomedical Completes Equity Offering and Public Listing

    2) Harris & Harris Group Invests in UberSeq, Inc... Which is a translational genomics company that originated from Stanford University.

    3) Harris & Harris Group Invests in Unique NYC Biotech Accelerator... Which is an investment vehicle for emerging biotechnology companies, into New York City.

    4) Harris & Harris Group invests more in D-Wave Systems... A company that is making great progress towards building a quantum computer.

    5) Harris & Harris Group increased its investment in HzO to 15%... A company that makes nano technology that can waterproof just about anything from watercolors on paper to high tech electronics.

    6) Harris & Harris Group increased its investment in Enumeral Transitions to 15% and Enumeral is now a publicly traded company... Enumeral is focused on using its proprietary drug discovery platform to identify and elucidate antibodies and antigens that are believed to be relevant to diseases that affect millions of individuals and are underserved by current therapeutic alternatives.

    I'm guessing that all of the above have helped create the recent 10% run but I see and infinite amount of potential in some of the above investments; especially 4, 5 and 6.

    Ah, hmm the $10.90 that I referred to in my prior post was per share of GameLoft and not per adr. If you look at the European ticker for GameLoft you’ll find that the twelve month high was 8.42 euros which (at today’s exchange rate) equals around $10.91. The adr associated with this company actually includes 4 European shares of GameLoft per adr; hence the twelve month high here was at least $43.64. I say “at least” because the euro is relatively soft right now so 8.42 euros was probably closer to $11 (or more) back when GameLoft was trading significantly higher.

    The reason I keep referencing the twelve month high is because GameLoft has a lot more going on right now than usual (at least as far as I can tell). They have released multiple blockbuster titles, they have converted several of their titles (both old and new) to multiple platforms and they still have a few titles preparing for release. IMHO, the next several quarters should be very good for GameLoft and that should be very good for shareholders (*)

    * Unless some of their new titles fall flat or the company over does it with too many employee share compensation packages. The overly generous company can destroy value for everyone by awarding too many shares to its employees. I've seen this time and time again when various management teams diluted the heck out of earnings and caused the market to sour against their stocks. It’s much better to be a bit more conservative with share allocations and let the market reward employees via a much greater share price. Mistakes of overcompensation via shares can start to compound themselves once top employees start to leave because their share prices is doing nothing for them. BTW, I still believe that the share price would double overnight if GameLoft were to list directly on the NASDAQ... Take a look at iDreamSky for an example of where this stock could head if listed on the NASDAQ $$$$$
