    Wow, when was the last time a stock raised/confirmed guidance and the sp lost 40%? Can you say never? The big issue is the structural change to the Allstate Contract. It's not like Allstate is their only customer, and they raised guidance going forward. Puzzling but given the confusion investors are dumping without thinking. This creates huge buying opportunity. I've been buying small lots all morning between 4.20-4.28/share. The RSI is currently around 11, wow. Mchx has almost 2/share in cash, no debt, and pays about a 2% dividend. Chachingg!!!. This is one of the easist buying decisions I've every made.

    Slowly Going Up

    Up 18% now. Again, no great shakes as it's coming off of all-time lows, but volume is up and the sp is heading in the right direction. Hopefully, another contract win will be announced tomorrow.

    Up 9% now. Hope it holds and we get more. Another contract tomorrow would be very nice. Maybe management will come out and say something positive concerning this Q's revenues/earnings. We'll see.

    CLASS ACTIONS ON THE WAY

    Against Siga of course. They filed Chapter 11. Attorneys are frothing at the mouth as Siga has almost $200m in cash. I'm surprised the class action prs haven't already started hitting the wires.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • I'm buying puts for Oct and Dec with a 1/share strike. This will continue to sink. Longs get nothing out of a chapter 11 reorg. It's best to cut and run now. I know, I've been here before with other stocks. Debt holders and preferred shareholds sometimes get something. That may not even happen with Siga.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Two days two nice contracts. Sumitomo is a huge company and Kaon has offices in over 80 countries. This should help the top and bottom line. I hope we'll see a 3rd contract tomorrow. The sp should start to go up from here, and in a big way.

    Lockheed Martin Contract

    Wow, was I wrong. Bought more in the am at 1.10 up to 1.23. It thought the strength in Rwlk would parlay into huge gains for ekso, given the Lockheed contract. I couldn't have been more wrong. Ekso is down over 20%, lower than it was before the runup Friday. Very disappointing. It appears that I'll be sitting on this for a bit.

    Sumitomo Contract

    Odd, I thought that this announcement would net a very positive response. Bought some more at .38, .36, .32. I think investors as a whole have given up on Ikan. We'll see how this contract affects their revenues/profitability. As skeptical as I am, this is the best news the stock has had in several Qs.

    Ikan just announced a very strong Sumitomo contract. For those thinking this one is done, think again. I'm not sure of the size of the contract, but Sumitomo thinks enough about it, that they offered a statement about the partnership. This could be quite huge. I'm adding some shares in the premarket. It will not take a lot to push this one back to 1/share.

    Jobe

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Here's the contract. It appears quite modest, just two suits. However, Lockheed seems determined to utilize the technology and push it forward. They have chosen Ekso as their partner as the do so. Assuming Lockheed is successful, this could cause Ekso sp to explode. See the link below.

    Nice pop and very nice contract for Mikros. I immagine there will be other follow-on contracts coming. I own thousands of shares, but will wait to add to see if there's any pull-back. Congrats! Jobe

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Earnings out! Made .10/share, beat increased revenues, and guided for $26m in revenues for the current Q. It's already moving higher in ahs. I bought some earlier at 3.46 today. I'm trying to add more around 3.70 but can't get it done. Oh well.

    no, no naked calls. I may be dumb, but not stupid. :-). Congrats to all longs. My timing on this is unbelievable. Been sitting on this for a year after buying right at $7.50. Now, I'll get that and some pocket change. Oh well. Congrats again guys, especially those who were more patient than I.

  • Psmi announced a sell to Murata for $12.50/share, about 80% above yesterday's close. With all the mergers and acquisitions going on lately, will Mrvl be next? At 13.60/share Mrvl looks very cheap.

    There it is, $12.50/share. Kick to the gonads for me. ouch. Just sold the calls this week.

    News pending, may be a buyout. The sorrow; recently sold the Oct 7.50 calls for about .50/share. tsk tsk, oh well, c'est la vie

    Tanking big? Okay, if you call .14 on a 13.64/share stock tanking big. Talk about warped perspective.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Wow, another strong Q, and people continue to sell Mrvl off. Amazing as Mrvl is trading at 10x earnings, has not debt, pays about a 2% dividend, and continues strong growth. Someone will jump on this at some point, and make an offer for $20-$25/share. I bought more ahs when it hit the low 13s, adding more at 13.05.

    oversold

    jobe1098 jobe1098 Aug 20, 2014 7:14 PM Flag

    Continuing to be oversold in ahs. Trading down to 9.90/share on thin ahs volume. Apparently, no one was very impressed with the Qly report. Maybe we'll hear something more positive on the cc in the morning that will get the stock moving higher.

    Jobe

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Earnings growth was solid if not extraordinary. Although management projects weakness for this Q due to govt. censorship of internet users, they still project 4 to 12% revenue growth for the Q. Additionally, they're in advanced talks to acquire another firm that will bolster top and bottom line. Cash is very strong, hard to actually calculate it, but it appears they have over $400m in cash. I'm not sure how much of that is debt.

    All-in-all, a good time to be buying shares of xnet.
