Excellent coverage indeed. This will be back to 60c plus in the next few months IMO. Then it will really gather material momentum. Incredible opportunity - an very much so at this level
Most biotechs have gone down dramatically in same period. LaFrance is well qualified and has led the vision, strategy and transition and always wanted most likely for Ms Pamieri to become CEO . I disagree with your perspective.
I think the plan was always to maker CEO. Company is being transformed uniquely addressing a far bigger market. Won't be down here wrt valaution for long ...
that's crazy. Unethical. Insiders do their own buying. being compensated accordingly by the company is non compliant and would have to be disclosed given it's a public company.
Why would you speculate such untruths? What's the point ?
yes all tax selling. Fundamentals point to the opposite of a sinking ship. You can buy stock in the company for $3M (current mkt cap 11M less 8m in cash). Incredible buy opportunity.
respectfully, that is crazy. Years ago? Hopto just launched in October 2014!! HPTO shold be considerd as a pre-funded (from legacy) start up as HopTo is a new product. All teh IP mentipned by me propr relates to HopTo only.
Q4 is the first qtr with new platform. Also the qtr with most sales activity (sales people). Let's see how Q4 pans out wrt revenue. Ditto Q1 2015. I do think partnerships are significant. I also think there is a lack of appreciation of the opportunities that partners provide wrt white labeling. I think this will take some time to curate into BIG revenue but there will be good progress. Recall from last earnings call IZEA has 18 partners (CBS etc..) I have been in IZEA for a little less than a year and am underwater. That said I am comfortable re direction of the company and considering breaking by personal percentage allocation rules to invest even more in IZEA at these crazy valuations. make no mistake this is tax selling.
The company has grown last 2 qtrs in a material way while transitioning to new platform and adding sales people. Company has applied for patents. It is in a good space with little real competition.
IMO, as stated above, buying at a valuation of approx $10M is too compelling. You may recall that there annualized revenues are already at $10M pretty much. This is indeed the holiday season
one the board members is an IP guru - that's why he is on the board. Google John Cronin. He is also chairman of ipCapital group - google them also. He spent 17 years at IBM as a leading light in IP. HPTO has very many and significant patents. Specifically HPTO has: (1) 17 patents approved and granted (2) 78 individual patent families and (3) 135 - one hundred and thirty five - patent applications pending
garbage. Company increased Q3 revs by 23% in Q3 while replacing old platform with new and investing in more sales resources. The increase in costs are new platform related and increases sales headcount. these are investments. Let's see how Q4 and Q1 goes.
You can buy IZEA at a valuation of sub $11M. This is a gift ...
In 2 years they have raised good money that has enabled them to focus on the business. They have build AND DEPLOYED BY SEPT 2014 a new platform. They have increased sales resources materially. Throughout this period revenue has increased as has reach. Let's see how Q4 and Q1 15 goes. You say this is going nowhere. I say the opposite. Let's see ...
I have spoken to Ted and another snr employee -they are not worried about the case.
You speculate that customers "tend to get &^%$ by Izea's pricing structure". If I may, this is speculation. There is little or no evidence to support this given revenues and bookings continue to grow.
Furthermore the new platform has been rolled out in October. Not sure what visibility you may have of this. The white label strategy that is enabled by this new platform is very interesting. All partners - and officially there are I think 18 as per the last call - can now do all that IZEA provides in their own image. Pretty attractive I would imagine to big brands.
So long as fundamentals continue to improve, and protected IP established for elements of platform (patents) I think this is a great investment. And certainly at these crazy low levels. Recall they raised a healthy chunk of $$$ in Feb 2015 at 35c !!!
me too. What is going on I wonder .... Recent increase in volume is interesting. Also insider buying
Interesting. Is it a simple exchange that that ties into APIs? Is that it? If that was the case is it not surprising they applied for patent(s) for IZEA platform and are "eagerly awaiting" to hear from US PTO?
Cash spend I suspect was caused due to investment of the platform and hiring of sales people. The goal I suspect is to get a material ROI on that investment in next 90/180 days.
Certainly you could run this company as a lean cash making machine but in that model you would not have the legs to materially grow the revenue. I assume you are tracking the revenue growth (even before the new IZEA platform kicks in)?
I do find Ted's omnipresence in other forums annoying when the stock price is sucking wind. It's part of the overall strategy I am sure.
I like to focus on fundamentals. The company has made material investments to feed profitable revenue growth. It seems there are encouraging signs. Time will tell....
