Dude... Please tell me you sold Uni-Pixel shares. I feel bad for you. Diversify your portfolio. Buy something like LinkedIn or Yelp around here. MUCH better than buying Uni-Pixel or those stocks you just mentioned. Also buy USLV and play with its volatility. You have a much better chance of making your $ back quickly. Good luck.
down to less than $10 PPS in a few months from its $40. Intel and Dell were speculative buyers of their Metal Mesh product which would've been huge for UNXL. Uni-Pixel also had a decent amount of cash and no debt so I knew it wasn't going to drop that much without having a short squeeze. I used all this information to make a volatility play on the company and it paid off well. The problem for Uni-Pixel is its competition and no financial stability. It relies heavily on its speculative buyers. Before you can really make money on its valuation, you would have to know the news on it before it hits the wires. Not something I would be interested in.
Thanks. Yeah, I do a lot of research on the markets and stocks before investing. There was many things to me buying Uni-Pixel earlier on. Much of it had to do with its technicals and news. The hype about metal mesh vs ITO was going around the wires earlier on in 2013. You can read some of the Seeking Alpha articles on Metal Mesh vs ITO. There are also statistics posted on it with cost reduction vs conductivity. When I noticed the 50% drop in UNXL, it got me interested. I did the research and found that there was a lot of hype around Uni-Pixel. Although it was one of my more riskier investments, I decided to play on the volatility because I knew with the kind of hype Uni-Pixel was getting, it wasn't going straight down to
Smart to buy to cover here at least half. It's not a good place to be short here right now unless you're trying to make a quick buck. I'm buying up shares here. It's still growing rapidly in many sectors.Check out the growth trends on eat24. Also take a look at the financials. They are in NO financial trouble. It has amazing margins. It's ahead of the game compared to its competitors and already has taken up a large market share and still investing and growing overseas. With its huge market share, it can integrate eat24 and make it grow much further and faster to compete against GrubHub which is its own competitor. I don't see this going below $2.5B anytime soon because it'll be an EASY buyout target under that.
I bought at $23 when it was going down, bought some more and some more down to $11.5. I sold it when it came back up to $20 some time in August when the insiders were abandoning ship. This stock isn't going anywhere. It was all hype. I made a very nice profit on this by playing off the volatility. I wouldn't suggest shorting or buying here. Not enough information on this company. It's too speculative and I wouldn't make either position here. Its market cap is only $43M so it could double fairly easily if they start hyping it up again. If I were to guess though, I'd say it's heading towards 0 and bankruptcy.
I hope you know posting here and trying to pump a stock doesn't work. Seriously, just sell it and move on. Damn... That sucks. I remember you being here long when I sold it at $21.
That indicates so much! You must be a genius. Amazon went from $100 to $10 around 2000. Now where is it genius?
Look at their quarter / quarter growth the previous quarter for the same time last year. It's supposed to be their best quarter last quarter. 1st quarter wasn't as good in percentage growth from quarter over quarter last year. This year, it actually grew. Last year, it declined 6% from the previous quarter Dummy. Every year, it declined except for this year!
Yelp is not out of cash... Wut? Are you reading the numbers correctly?
Well, it's more closer to $3B of a market cap now. Yelp was a speculative takeout target at $6B a while ago and that's when they weren't even making any profit. It's still growing and we can see that from their overall revenue. There are many great companies out there don't have positive net income yet are valued much higher. It's smart for companies like this to take their top line and invest it back into R&D. Their acquisition seems to be paying off. The only major competition they have currently is GrubHub but it's still too early to tell if they're really hurting market share from Yelp since Yelp is still expanding and haven't seen any real major decline in market share.
Take a look at the trends on Yelp Brazil and UK. It's growing very quickly in those areas. If it starts catching on in more modern countries, it'll spread quickly to other parts of the world.
Yelp is still growing quarter / quarter in percentage. Check the trends on eatme... It's growing fast. Also take a look at seatme. It's also growing rapdily.
The investment could've been in many areas internationally. This investment could have a great ROI in 3-4 months from now. If you invest in buying a house for $100k and you give it out for rent. The rent you get from it is $20k per a year, does that mean you just wasted your money? The answer is NO
What? How am I a basher? I speak the truth. You can see that I was a long advocate on UNXL from my history. Now I'm not long or short.
