They can't always pull the trigger when you want them to, they have underwriters to deal with, etc.
I'm wonder what they need this cash for?
It's trading near a 52 week high, remember a year ago it was selling for $20 a share, so it's OVER valued and I think people are figuring out reality vs conjecture. Their sales went up and so did their losses. That's a sure sign that management is clueless. I think they have too much SG&A and that's where they need to cut the losses, but that might include reducing staff which helps drives sales/support/development. It's a double edged sword.
I just have a very difficult time paying top dollar for stock. the stock traded at $20 a year ago and what's happened in the last year? Increased Sales and increased losses.
Their sales went up about 20% from $138 Million to $164 Million, yet their losses went up by more than a factor of 2x from $25 Million to $59 Million. That's not a good sign when the losses are increasing faster than revenues. If the losses were increasing at a slower rate, then maybe that would be a good sign, but they aren't.
I'm sure they are going to have a loss for this quarter, which ends 3 weeks from now and then well see how their losses are compared to sales. I just won't buy at a 52 Week High range with a company losing money like this.
This is probably more like a $20 stock IMO.
go look at the insider transactions. Lots of SELL, SELL, SELL. they would now more than you or I, which is why there are a LOT of insider SALES of this stock.
how is Imperva a steal? They are LOSING MONEY. if you look at the last three years, their sales have increased from $104 Million to $164 Million, but their loses went from $7.387 Million to now almost $59 Million. And you think this company is worth a $1.25 Billion market cap? Someone is smoking some pretty powerful weed on this one. It's worth a LOT less than that. Sounds like this is overpriced just like Autonomy was overpriced when they stuck HP with that turd. (ever wonder why Anthony hired two other former Verity people?) They ran Verity into the ground and had to sell, then they worked for Autonomy and had to sell.....
I don't think Cisco is THAT stupid to pay that kind of premium for just a software company like this. They are losing more money when they have more sales. TYPICAL IDIOTS running the asylum. Don't get caught into this sucker bet.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Not with Anthony Bettencourt involved. He's sold every company he's been a CEO for. If you are an employee, get a labor law attorney on retainer QUICK. he's got history of telling you one thing and then doing another. he's an IDIOT. Look at his education, he's only got a degree in English, he has no education in business or technology. he just knows how to twist words around to act superior.
That's why I don't use FB and other apps that cause that problem. I would check Google related apps as well. We all know they tend to do things we don't like. I deleted Chrome from my desktop and it took me a while to figure out what files it puts throughout the OS, it was pretty disgusting to find out what little applets and files they stick in weird places on an OS X computer. That's why I stick with Safari, far less issues.
