I see nothing to stop that from happening. Still trending 10% higher than last year on volume. PSA is raising prices. Tons of old-time great coin collections are coming on the market. The coin market appears strong. Interest rates look like they won't go up for another year and then only modestly.
United States Patent Application 20140156111
Ehrman; Michael L. June 5, 2014
REMOTE VEHICLE RENTAL SYSTEMS AND METHODS
A system for renting vehicles is disclosed. The system can comprise a vehicle access communicator ("VAC") capable of interfacing with one or more functions of a rental vehicle and a user provided portable electronic device. The VAC can control various functions of the vehicle including, but not limited to, the door locks and/or enabling/disabling the vehicle. The VAC can also monitor various functions of the vehicle including, but not limited to, the fuel level and/or the odometer readings. The VAC can connect to the portable electronic device using a suitable connection method to access additional functionality such as, for example and not limitation, locations services, cellular, and/or internet access. The VAC and the portable electronic device can be used to provide a rental system with reduced infrastructure and operating costs. The system can enable the use of "Green Zones" to provide permanent or temporary vehicle rental areas.
Oh I forgot to mention, the pediophile (caseyboy2, if you are interested. not kidding with the name either) follows me around on almost every board. Been doing that for about 14 years now.
There are some serious nut jobs on the net. spanspur was fairly transparent. He isn't even the oddest guy I've encountered. One is an environmentalist who has her own website and rails against a mining company. Trouble is, she used her real name and address to register the site. Another is a guy who used his yahoo alias on a NAMBLA site trolling for little boys and then denied it. so yeah, spanspur is not the weirdest guy I've ever encountered.
I think since everyone was "onto" the spanspur alias, he made up some BS story and retired that alias. I'm sure he's sill around just using a different ID. Weasels like him do that
Long term, this company is not going anywhere
PSA raised prices the July specials by 25c/card from $6.75 to $7. Was as low #$%$ late last year. There is some national card show in July and that is the busiest month for cards. Coins are in their 6 month "slow" period now so the cards and coins sort of work well together to smooth revenue out.
PSA appears to have had a record quarter last quarter. All the card collectors are complaining about excessively long backlog times. So it makes sense to raise prices.
I know Ford, Chrysler, BMW, Audi, Toyota are customers. GM was a customer in the past. Could be Honda, VW, Kia, Subaru
I don't agree that pilots are free. 250 vehicles isn't a pilot. 25 vehicles is a pilot.
this is the guy that just squeaked through. He is the guy who did the online gambling sites. At least he has some skin in the game. He is the only new BOD with any significant ownership.
I believe a company the size of IDSY should make the BOD pick up a 1% stake within 3 years of getting on the BOD.
at $2500 each, $625K+ pilot. Not sure why a pilot is still necessary. Ford runs their entire operation on VMS. Why is a pilot needed? This is a failure of the sales/marketing/executive staff to get the word out.
going back and looking at the PR's, P&G is rolling out 5 plants every quarter. They are revamping manufacturing and have a plan in place through 2016. That puts them at about 80 plants completed by that time frame out of 130 or so total.
Analytics is priced high enough to move the needle. If every VMS customer (50K) deployed at $10/month, it's only $500K/month. High margin, but really, big whoop
If every TMS customer deployed (125K) at $2/month, it's only an extra $250K/month
WalMart has their own internal reporting module and will never buy Analytics. Two years of talk about Analytics for a lot of nothing
So ex-WalMart, we are looking at $600K/month if everyone deployed. Realistically, it will be a $250K/month seller in a few years.
FYI - P&G has another 100 sites
In the U.S., we own and operate 32 manufacturing sites located in 21 different states or territories. In addition, we own and operate 102 manufacturing sites in 40 other countries.
they were mentioned. The $1.2M announcement in April was the same customer (P&G) so this quarters instal for them are down
Russell rebalance. They needed the shares so they dropped the price. What a scam. The market is rigged.
Why didn't that raise the price by $1.20?
