Don't know anything about max and lord ambro, but I do know that cluttering a board with meaningless posts is a time-tested way to limit the sharing of information by those who don't want it shared.
"It is customary to refer with great respect to the 'bloodless verdict of the market place," as though it represented invariably the composite judgment of countless shrewd, informed and calculating minds. Very frequently, however, these appraisals are based on mob psychology, on faulty reasoning, and on the most superficial examination of inadequate information." - Benjamin Graham, "Security Analysis" Chapter 32.
alien - are you actually suggesting the previously uninsured will have less drug coverage for Acthar than they did when they were uninsured? I think you need to tap into the Borg collective to rethink that.
Health plans have been cheapening their drug formularies for at least a decade, that is what pharmacy benefit managers like ESRX and CVS are hired to manage. That is their job. To pretend it is starting because of Obamacare is at best disingenuous.
Forbes - still #$%$ he wasn't elected the republican President 20 years ago, so hardly an apolitical source.
Shorts - You are down 100% in 12 months (while the overall market has been hitting new highs). The stock has gained over a BILLION dollars in market cap. And your ringleader just sleepwalked through one of the most important short attacks of his life. Yet you take the losses. Is there NO accountability?
I am not an expert in the field, and it is nice to see FISV's vote of confidence as they certainly are, but after researching the issue it seemed obvious to me just from reading the differing descriptions of how the TISA and MITK technologies work that TISA is not infringing on MITK's patent. Even the MITK supporters could only make a case of the simplicity of "MITK patented mobile deposit first".
So I don't understand why people assume MITK has a legitimate case just because MITK filed a lawsuit. But people do assume that if they aren't willing to look into it, like most people, which is why filing a lawuit against TISA has been such a successful marketing technique for MITK.
Analyst Actions: Benchmark Initiates Top Image With Buy, $7 PT, Cites Growth Drivers; Shares Flat Early

08:01 AM EST, 12/10/2013 (MT Newswires) -- Analysts at Benchmark have initiated coverage of Top Image Systems Ltd. (TISA) with a Buy rating and a $7 price target.
TISA develops and markets automated data capture solutions for managing and validating content gathered from customers, trading partners and employee
"Despite predictions of modest industry growth in the core business, we believe TISA has a handful of growth drivers lurking beneath the surface that are currently not factored into the stock," Benchmark said in its report. The firm also said TISA is "becoming a more attractive M&A candidate given its industrial-strength capture technology, international customer base and emerging mobility growth story."
Shares of TISA are unchanged in the pre-market session at $5.14, amid a 52-week frame of $2.52 - $5.44.
civicvirtue, it's telling that you don't bother to educate yourself, such as by reading this complete thread, before you try to insult someone for political reasons. If you had, you would have seen my comment referenced alien's earlier comment ON THIS THREAD: "Are you from the borg? I've always wanted to be one of the borg, catchy ride that square cube."
I don't need to read any more of your comments to know your idea of "civic virtue" is closemindedness and condescension. And that's an idea of "civic virtue" we can all do without.
Now you know never to set a stop loss, because in these days of High Frequency Trading someone smarter and faster than you will take advantage
The only time there are SEC-enforced customer disclosure requirements is when a customer is at least 10% of sales. Otherwise, the existence or change in a relationship doesn't have to be disclosed, even if the relationship has previously been disclosed. Any other disclosures are at the discretion of the company. Unless privacy provisions in the contract prevent the disclosure of such a relationship, so they couldn't disclose it even if they wanted to.
My question - any ideas how to estimate revenues from the Fiserv contract?
I don't follow the industry closely enough to know who that might be. There must be dozens of firms including startups who could contribute useful technology.
Yes. I didn't explain myself too well. I think of Fiserv as a non-repeatable event. After all you can't sign up the 800-pound gorilla of the industry every quarter. So if I look at Q3 without Fiserv, are the market conditions dramatically improving from a base of $6M in revenue and eps losses (if Fiserv is part of what they reported in Q3 revenue), or $8M in revenue and profits (if for accounting reasons Fiserv will show up in Q4). If it is the second, TISA goes up like a rocket.
Would be a home run if the 24% sequential revenue growth wasn't off such a low base. It will be interesting to hear in the call if the Q3 revenue includes the several $ million upfront payment by Fiserv. If that payment is included in the quarter, everything else in the quarter looks a lot like last quarter. If that payment slides to Q4, then Q3 was a real rebound and Q4 might be a monster.
If in the call if sounds like TISA can at least hold the eps at $0.08/share in Q4 and beyond, those growth rates suggest this could finally rocket higher. Finally!
Pathetic spam. I've seen this exact same message on a couple other boards just today, SYK & SBS at least.
Anyone dumb enough to buy the POS ADSU deserves what they get (Stevie, go right ahead!)
I can't see what other reason it could be. Or at least to give them the ammunition for an acquisition if they want. It isn't like they need to sell stock to pay off debt.
