    Clearly Laplanche is out, the acting CEO...now new CEO has righted the ship. No one cares about LC loans back 7 years ago in 2009 way before its IPO but it's great their internal review went back that far. This was not a ongoing systemic failure, and now LC is well positioned to move on growing its platform. The third quarter starts in 3 days and Q2 will be well behind us.

  • Look at Social Finance yesterday from the WSJ:

    SoFi Chief Financial Officer Nino Fanlo said in an interview that 28 investors participated in the $380 million offering, and there was demand for nearly three times the amount of bonds that SoFi was looking to sell.

    Online lender Social Finance Inc. on Tuesday completed one of the largest sales of bonds backed by consumer loans this year, suggesting that a scandal that recently rocked rival LendingClub Corp. hasn’t dented investors’ overall willingness to own online unsecured loans.

    SoFi Chief Financial Officer Nino Fanlo said in an interview that 28 investors participated in the $380 million offering, and there was demand for nearly three times the amount of bonds that SoFi was looking to sell.

    The least risky portion of SoFi’s bond deal commanded a yield of around 2.4 percentage points above benchmark rates, a spread that was several percentage points lower than that of similar securitizations of unsecured loans made by other lenders earlier this year, according to data from online lending tracker PeerIQ.

    The loans underlying SoFi’s deal were less likely to default than those in prior securitizations of online loans, according to Kroll Bond Rating Agency, which gave the deal a single-A rating.

    He added 4.3 milion shares in two days of trading. Him adding 3.4 million shares at $4.75 yesterday is extremely bullish imo. You now know where the new floor of LC is.

    Look...I don't care where you stand on LC. I'm long. The reason? Almost daily now we are getting stories of large new shareholders, potential buyouts, potential partial buyouts, potential lenders, etc...etc... what does that tell you? It tells me there is high interest in LC. A lot of interest in LC. So then you look at the share price. What is the lowest it is going to fall to? $4...what is the highest? $8? Because obviously LC low makes it have a larger potential for a buyout so there is a floor at $4. But the upside is far greater. Sure, we can watch LC move from $4.20 -$4.70 all day. A great trading range. Traders...go nuts...trade away. But this snowball effect is gaining traction with each passing day. Really? A new story every day of someone else who wants a stake in LC? Stay in and hold the course. You'll be rewarded soon enough!

    Far easier for banks that want to invest to get on board LC's money train imo. This is obviously a sign that LC has signed on some new buyers of loans of they are making the loans less risky. Today are the filings which everyone will try to interpret the tea leaves ...tomorrow will be the announcement of who is going to newly buy new/future loans. Bought again in the $4.40 area. Good luck!

    Interesting Barron's story after the bell...it sounds like RWLK would have a fantastically large market cap if traded on the Japanese exchange (compared to a Japanese potential future competitor called Cyberdyne who makes what looks like the same exoskeleton that RWLK makes).

    Cyberdyne has only 130 approved for medical use in the EU. What am I missing? Yes...they have other non medical use products...like 489 stripped down versions of their exoskeletons for nursing homes for elderly mobility etc...but for that market cap? Wow. RWLK has over 200 units out there for personal and medical.

    Cyberdyne has a $4.7 BILLION market cap with no access to the USA market yet (no FDA approval). What the heck? Also, the bearish analyst in Barrons who says "short Cyberdyne" says he'd buy it if it had a $200 market cap vs $4.7 Billion. RWLK has a $95 mil market cap. Cyberdyne is valued at $4.7 Billion market cap. That tells me RWLK should be considered highly undervalued somewhere in this world.

    If I were Cyberdyne with that market cap, I'd just buy out RWLK in stock and instantly get into the USA market and eliminate the competition. I'm not greedy, a $500 million market cap buy out would be just fine ...or $35-$40 a share.

    Well when I saw $7.10 hit today, it was too good to pass up. I bought .10-.20 higher. This company is stronger than ever and about to go into overdrive with the VA, commercial insurance companies, etc...I can feel the tidal wave of orders coming, so I'm not sure why this board is quiet or why the stock has traded lower since earnings. But I thank you! I'm looking forward to their presentation on June 9. Once the insurance companies fall like dominoes, can RWLK produce their units fast enough?

    Increasing buying loans

    That's the whole point. The quality of the loans are fine. These aren't housing ARM's where people become shocked when their interest raise rises because they don't know how ARM's work.

    Bloomberg tonight. Long and strong LENDING CLUB!

    "Not all lenders are cutting back. Prime Meridian Capital Management is a loan investor that with help from a bank is increasing investments in loans made mainly by Prosper and LendingClub, said Don Davis, a portfolio manager at the asset manager. It owns about $160 million in such loans and manages two funds, one of which is levered with the help of Capital One Financial Corp. A spokesman for Capital One declined to comment.

    Prime Meridian Capital is increasing its leverage and bets on the loans, and intends to finance about 70 percent of its holdings, up from about 50 percent, in coming months, Davis said. "As far as the quality of loans we hold in our portfolio, I see absolutely no problem with those loans, past, present or future," Davis said."

    I agree. Even if half the volume were from daytraders in the past 11 days, and half the volume were institutions jumping in going long...LC is simply running out of shares as those shares go to the buy and holder types.

    I just don't believe that every institution that held LC pre-May 9 has sold off their shares. I believe this is an artificial supply issue which is going to send LC much higher.

    You never know. Never say never. I'll I know is that since May 9, A whopping 584 million shares of LC have been traded. There are 381 million shares outstanding. Now unless every institution sold their shares and they were rebought, and if the Shandia hasn't been buying/holding, and if LC hasn't continued their stock buyback....it seems to me this many shares should not be floating around to trade. To me, it seems like the stock is artificially trading low based on the cumulative volume to date. Historically, this stock trades daily at 3 million - 10 million shares a day. But in 11 trading days, 584 million shares total or an average of 53 million shares a day. I would not be short a stock with that much volume. Because all that volume is not from daytraders. I think this stock goes higher because they're going to run out of shares if this continues to be 30-50 million volume days. There simply isn't enough supply!

    No offense, but the only risk I see here is their growth story. The "problem" is that demand for loans is outweighing supply for entities to give people loans in P2P. That's a good "problem" to have imo. So then the market valued LC as a value proposition high in cash and zero growth. Now I don't know if the BoD accelerated their share buyback after this collapse, but I hope they did and are retiring a lot of shares. With entities like Jeffries finding private equity firms to allow LC"s growth story, we basically have the same company when it was trading $6-$8 except the Justice dept has their fingers in them now. Investigations take a lonnnnnnnng time for the feds to come up with an opinions/conclusions. Anything federal is slow and should not affect LC.

    LC simply needs to do this. Announce any large entity who is "newly interested" in their loans and those large entities who have "reiterated their interest". Once that is done...LC stock climbs strong and hard.
