here's another free tip for - skate to where the pick will be, not where it is. This company will soon have 100M shares.
WG, CDTI, INTC the day before a huge drop, sold CAMP before a huge run. You should get off these boards and into ETF's. You may be the worst trader in all of yahoo land. Everyone knows you are FOS
Business travelers increasingly are relying on Uber and other ride-hailing services, often more than car rentals or taxis, according to new data.
Say you land at Chicago O'Hare International Airport. You've got a work meeting 20 minutes away. You might head to the rental desk to pick up a car. Or, you might call an Uber instead.
"More transactions coming through our system are in Uber than there were in all the rental car transactions," says Bob Neveu, CEO of Certify, a company that businesses use to book travel and track receipts.
Certify analyzed millions of client transactions, and in the last quarter of 2015 Uber represented 41 percent of total rides, rental cars 39 percent, and taxis 20 percent. (The analysis does not include Lyft rides, which grew more than 700 percent over the last year but is still a fairly small portion, according to Certify data.)
hmm. You hold tens of thousands of this POS when I sold for a nice profit. You waste countless hours trolling this board. Who is S for brains?
clear violation of the various IDSY Rental Fleet patents. IDSY must immediately file a suit. IDSY blew it by not suing ZIPCar. We can blame Jagid for that. This is clearly on Ehrman. Hit them early before this takes off.
I don't care if they are a new VMS customer with a potential to be large in that space. That was Jagid's mistake with ZIPCar. Either you have IP or you don't. Let's see if Ehrman has baaaalllls or not.
Not talking about huge sums of money. Just the principal of defending IP. A suit will also lead to publicity and then more settlements from others as well.
GENERAL MOTORS IS launching a car-sharing program. It’s called Maven, it’s available in exactly one city, and, frankly, it’s an unexciting riff on ZipCar. But GM isn’t really competing with ZipCar. It’s placing a bet on the future.
The Detroit automaker’s done a lot of that this month. It introduced the Chevy Bolt, the first mass-market electric car. It bought the remains of Sidecar, the defunct Uber competitor, to strip it for parts. It’s working with Mobileye to develop maps for robo-cars. It’s working with Lyft to build a network of driverless vehicles.
And now Maven, which the company announced Wednesday. At first glance, you might consider this an odd move. Maven is available only in Ann Arbor, Michigan—though GM plans to move into other cities soon—and it doesn’t offer the convenience of Uber or Lyft. Oh sure, there’s money to be made in car-sharing, as ZipCar and others have shown. But it’s small potatoes for a company like GM. It isn’t until you take the long view that this move makes sense. Maven can be the foundation for the self-driving car network GM wants to build.
Maven is key to how GM is addressing that shift. At first, it will be available to students and faculty at the University of Michigan’s Ann Arbor campus. Chevrolet vehicles—Volts, Sparks, Malibus, and Tahoes—will fill 21 parking spots. Users can reserve cars through the Maven app, and use their phone to unlock and start the vehicle.
and if you shorted Avis and Hertz instead of TAXI, you be up 2X+ on a much more liquid stock. Like I said, you all svck
aren't you the same guy who argued with me when the stock price was $36 just a few weeks ago? dude, your DOWN 33% in 2 weeks. Obviously you missed something
Dougherty dropped coverage. Explains the Friday sell-off. Now that IDSY has a Line of Credit, a secondary is unlikely. Dirty game these underwriters play: initiate coverage, get secondary underwriting fees, dump on dummies like caseyboy2 who bought at the $22.75 secondary, drop coverage
I always suspected something was amiss with the Dougherty coverage
except that interest rates are going up and the cycle is now going against them. Would you pay $15K for one of their used cars? I wouldn't touch them
