As I said in a previous post, one gets the impression listening to the most recent conference call that they are on the verge of heading into positive earnings territory. Also the component of retaining Blackstone in conjunction with possibly selling the other side of the business is compelling enough for me to ride this out. Just a wild #$%$ stab here, but $3-$4 by yr end could be a reality. I'm hanging in there for the long haul & see current levels as a great accumulation opportunity.
Couldn't agree more. Beat it down & load up lower. Must be the strategy. Dividend announcement should be coming soon, so worth hanging on for that & ride it back upwards I suspect, but if another offering comes in to play, another drop shall follow. Just opportunities to pick up cheaper. Done it a bunch of times with this stock.
A stellar qrtr & these idiots suddenly all want to downgrade the thing. Its subliminal
manipulation in my opinion. Ridiculous, but I guess that's how they roll.
That's a relief. Was staring to wonder. Standard 20 cents payable in April. Guessing this should bump the stock a bit in the AM. It's been trading somewhat erratic here lately. Nice yield !!
So what is the potential for this new VOYCE prdct ? I know there's animal / pet fanatics out there (own a dog myself), but not sure I would go to the length of investing in this technology for my dog ?
PGF isn't very exciting, nor does it have quite the divvy, but it's an ETF that consistently pays an attractive mthly dividend currently about 6.5% Like FSC as well (a BDC), another mthly payer north of 10%.........Also love REM , Mrtg REIT / qrtrly payer at around 14.5% (like the diversification aspect)
Should be announcing a near term dividend soon so room for a bit more premium on the price in my opinion. Also worthy of noting that their earnings reports are starting to become rather stellar. That said, this stock could start luring a lot more attention/coverage which could really propel it. I've been in & out of it several times, enjoyed all the divvys etc...but might be worth just hanging on to a certain # of shares and separately play it for quick in & out trades as well on the side.
Find the silence a bit odd myself & could be the reason for what I see as panic selling. Absent any bad news, seems to be a bit oversold. Their balance sheet still appears to be strong, so peculiar to see it drop so dramatically. If we could see a confirm of the dividend & maybe some inside buying, this thing could jump nicely from here. Just hope something real ugly isn't lurking around the corner.
Pure speculation, but one of the investment groups following this company has suggested that if they do indeed sell off the Unity biz, it could represent a one time dividend payment to shareholders of up to 50 cents (based on 1xsales) which could make owning this stock quite worthwhile, at least in the short term. When Kaplan was asked when he thought a deal would be closed, he suggested by mid yr. Good entry point in the 1.50's in my opinion. Also got the impression via conf call that IPAS may be seeing black by 3rd/4th qrtr which could propel the stock nicely. Bought more today. This thing could be $3-4 in 6-9mths in my opinion.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
You may be right. Release could just be the Vaseline before another dismal report. We shall find out soon.
Correction increased by 50% during 4th qrtr 2013 not "twice the hotspots compared to 4th qrtr 2014" but still favorable news. Need more coffee.
RE: twice the hotspots compared to 4th qrtr 2014......probably related to Telefonica relationship I suspect
You have to wonder though about the recent coverage from the one investment house with a $5 price target. One would like to think they did enough due diligence before initiating such an aggressive target price that they felt comfortable in setting that target for a reason. Can't imagine IPAS won't bring up the Telefonica relationship & what that potentially translates into for future revenues. But I agree with you; if the story is similar to last qrtr, blah blah blah, this thing could sell off down to the 1.20's handle just like last time. Just a hunch, but I think they come in line with consensus estimate & share some encouraging news .......I hope.
I'm looking at a High Yield Investing publication put out by Carla in Nov 2012 and this was one of the stocks, then trading at $14.81 , that was included in her issue. I remember almost buying it, but for some reason backed off (good move!!) ....but I did pick up a measly 1000 shares the other day after it dropped to about 2.60. So, am I missing something here, or is this thing just a wee bit over sold here ? May have to double up here. Nice yield, especially at $2.15 price even though they may drop the yield again. Thoughts ? No short pump bs plz.
Looks like they are losing a contract with Cap one in July which is why the stock is leaking. Based on their financials and very nice dividend (for the moment), appears to be a great entry point although would like to see some good news out of them to propel this thing back in the right direction.
