"The gap gives an indication of a large increase in sentiment in the direction of the gap, which will likely last for some time, leading to an extended move. "
Most of us like the words "EXTENDED MOVE"
Ring Central Reported after the bell today
Just like EGHT they reported a GAAP earnings loss. ($0.12) (EGHT-.005)
They actually lost -($0.05) adjusted income
Rising Share count
stockholders’ equity per share $1.44
Vonage is a FULL UCaaS provider with ALL the diversity of services that 8x8 inc. offers, PLUS a PHYSICAL NETWORK, and capability to service 1 seat to 1000 seats.
Vonage and 8x8 inc. both also provide home phone service, but Eght quit reporting on those subs numbers years ago. (they of course include the revenues)
Here is the June 30 2015 Comparisons between the close competitors
VG __ $4.09
RNG_ $ 3.48
Diluted GAAP EPS ttm (higher better)
EGHT _ .016
RNG _ NEGATIVE
P/FCF (lower - more undervalued)
VG ____ 12.73
EGHT _ 51.55
RNG __ - NO FREE CASH FLOW
EV/EBITDA ttm (lower - more undervalued)
VG ___ 13.22
RNG _ -() - negative - ebitda loss
Why does Rng sell for $18?
Why does Eght sell for $8.50?
And Vonage only sell for $6?
THE ANSWER IS, NO MATTER WHAT THE BLATHERING SHORTS TELL YOU ON THIS BOARD, VONAGE WON'T SELL FOR SO LOW, LONG.
Management will host a webcast discussion of the second quarter on Thursday, July 30, 2015 at 8:30 a.m. ET.
Past Practice was after the market opened for the CC. I think I like that it will be before the market open.
I would say Eght's results show declining gaap earnings for the last three quarters into the negative zone this quarter. A rising PE of 836 on Yahoo. A PRIME TARGET FOR SHORTS.
Vonage on the other hand has had rising gaap earnings the last three quarters, and a PE that has declined. A PRIME CANIDATE FOR A SHORT SQEEZE.
Will we break that tomorrow?
Are the longs happy?
Are the shorts happy?
Are the traders happy?
Are the Institutions that are buying this up happy?
Are the posters here happy?

•China pulls out all the stops to rescue the markets.
•Greece may be fixed again on Sunday so Europe is happy too.
•Our futures are popping but we're still skeptical and waiting to see our Bounce Lines.
Arrest them! Arrest them, arrest them -
Then shoot and interrogate them!
That was the word from the Communist Party last night as they halted one half the market and made it illegal to short the other half while the PBOC, the brokers, the banks and even Goldman Sachs went all in to pump up the markets for the Top 1% over in the "People's" Republic of China.
They will use any excuse to drop this.
""structural cost savings for us in the double-digit millions of dollars over the subsequent two to three years""
"Cost savings" means $PROFITS!!!
$10M = $.05 per share.
Our local statistic challenged pumper / Fact less basher - is arguing with himself to cover up the facts.
Tedious, over and over.
Meanwhile they fill the board with garbage posts about PE's
Shorts are over extended here. They have to manipulate.

ALL BETTER THAN THE COMPETITION, Yet way undervalued compared to them
They are a little late to the game. Vonage turned around a while back. Profits, HUGE CF, Long before Maserek was hired.
Remember those TV ads for Internet phone service Vonage? The ones with that catchy "Woo Hoo! Woo Hoo Hoo!" song? It was hard to avoid them since they aired so much.
Vonage CEO Alan Masarek says people sing it to him all the time. But Masarek, who just joined Vonage (VG) from Google last year, is trying to change people's perceptions of the company.
He told CNNMoney that he wants to turn Vonage into a leading provider of cloud-based communications services for small businesses.
Masarek said Vonage isn't abandoning the average consumer. The company still has 2.1 million subscribers.
But the company has been losing average consumers at a decent clip for the past few years. The stock, which went public in 2006, has been a dud since then. It is about 75% below its all-time high.
So Vonage has to focus more on small businesses since that's where the most growth is.
Masarek said that for many small businesses, having their landline and wireless phone systems run through the cloud is a lot cheaper.
Emphasizing business will also help Vonage compete more effectively against the likes of telecom giants AT&T and Verizon as well as smaller Internet phone companies 8X8 and Magicjack
The consumer phone business is incredibly tough. The big wireless carriers are all launching cheaper monthly plans to try and grab consumers. And you have to spend a lot of money on marketing -- typically big TV ad campaigns -- to get noticed.
That's what Vonage used to do. Masarek said the company will still have TV commercials.
But it's not going to be as aggressive it used to be. Instead, it is going to focus more directly on targeted digital advertising -- especially search -- to attract more small business customers.
Vonage has already made several acquisitions to bolster its small business product offerings as well. And more deals on the way.
The board fool is trying to hide them with inane opinion posts.
Notice he is not talking about a million + shares to move this up yesterday, and only 10s of thousands to push it back down!
