    I hear ya , and at 100M we get $2.50...I would not be crazy happy, but would take it. Look for an update from Bill in the next day or 2 just like last quarter after the 10-Q was released.

    It is not about earnings...PERIOD. It is about the packaged solution and sales!!! SALES!!!!! Who else in this space was making money and sold out...nobody!!! Square was making how much money when they we taken out for 800M??? Please give the example of a company in this space that had earnings, and then was taken out. Look at Amazon...150B market cap...not making money. I would take 400M for a buy out.

    My best,

    I had hoped for much more of an increase. I would like to hear from the company some additional details. What is the platform worth without much volume in sales? The margins are great.

    Thanks,
    John

    semperfi,

    Did you get a chance to go back to see Bill and Chris? The show ends today, are you still there. Can you tell us about what they were demonstrating in the booth?

    Thanks much,

    10-Q Defining Success of Q3

    Is the Beacon designed to change the fate of sales or is it an very nice upside supplement? I do not know, but look forward to the new info coming. We need some traction somewhere. I can wait a couple years for the payout, but I want to see them continue down the yellow brick road!

    My best,

  • We are about 2 weeks out from the 10-Q and everyone is anxiously waiting to see some sales numbers. I think the key is defining success in advance of the release. There are really two areas I will be watching, business objectives and sales.

    Business objectives outlined in Bills letter of August were measurable:
    - Double existing merchants by year end
    - Double resellers by year end
    - Yowza!! apps downloaded from 2Mil to 2.5 Mil by year end
    - Progress on beacon ready technology

    Sales - I am not sure of a number I could call a successful. If I had to pick a number it would be $350k. This would show that they had made the turn and are on the upswing. That would also be a double and if not achieved, as long as the business objectives are shaping up, I will be ok. I will be more critical on the sales numbers after Q4.

    Thoughts?

    My best,

    John

    I would agree if you replaced earnings with sales. We will never see earning as we will get taken out once someone is comfortable with the product positioning and the model for future sales. If sales are flat, I will be concerned. Knowing the sales will lag, a nice leg up here may get some attention.

    I really think they need coverage by an analyst or two.....maybe sales will bring that to reality.

    My best,

    John

    They will have the 10Q out in about 3 weeks. That will be a sign.

    Feels like close to a bottom...

    If you want in, you should steal the stock like someone else is in the low .70s. Today we lost 17% in value with less that $3,000 in trading....the volume is just too thin and I have to believe this is manipulated. Someone picks up 5-10K per day...... and then runs it back up, that is the theme here. We are about a month out from the 10-Q.

    My best,

    SPDL pre-positioning nicely

    This is his third identity. Rad something, Fukeew or close and now this. I hate to see any assets wasted on high priced attorneys taking him down, but on the other hand.......

    We have a ways to go to get that 26 Mil in sales. Do you think we would be aquired before a sales ramp up or once we hit the inflection point I think you had mentioned before? I have $7 per share 2 years from now as my personal target. Is that a reasonable value and timeline?
