Cornbunkle is an accurate name for your comments. Since when is selling 18k measly shares in the aftermarket worthy of the SEC's attention? Every act of buying or selling isn't tied to a conspiracy theory of an information leak. Continue managing your risk as a day trader if it works for you. Looking past the minute by minute time frame, the fact is MM's trend has only been up since it bottomed at $5.78. Next month's earning report will shed true light and hopefully reduce lame comments on this board.
Congratulations to all who had the common sense to position themselves for easy money with MM and ignore all the lame conspiracy theories, and disgruntled bench warmers who bash, but can't stop watching MM.
the average panic stricken retail investor, while the institutions wait patiently for the real return!
Fair enough. The problem with message boards is people with little to no experience are looking for a crystal ball. The boards SHOULD be a tool for sharing thoughts all taken with a grain of salt and ones own due diligence. The thumbs down, gross lying cheer leaders, or constant bashing means zero to me. I put those people on ignore. What counts is return on investment, and I don't care if the profit comes by holding long, shorting, or trading where one sees fit...
Millennial Media (MM) today announced the launch of a cutting-edge mobile advertising campaign for Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. that engages consumers with voice-activated technology. The campaign highlights the all-new 2014 Corolla, and lets consumers engage in a two-way conversation with the ad unit to mimic the experience of Entune Audio, Toyota’s innovative in-vehicle multimedia and telematics system with speech recognition.
The new campaign leverages Millennial Media’s Voice SHOW & TELL ad unit, and presents the consumer with images of three different apps available on the Entune system: iHeartradio, Weather, and “Text to Speech.” The creative prompts the consumer to say which app they would like to find out more about, and depending on the consumer’s verbal response, he or she is taken through a demonstration that highlights the features of the app.
“Millennial Media’s new voice ads deliver on three crucial areas of importance for advertisers: driving engagement and user interaction, delivering relevant content, and creating a campaign uniquely suited for mobile,” said Mollie Spilman, EVP Global Sales & Marketing, Millennial Media. “Toyota’s innovative campaign represents a landmark occasion both in mobile advertising and automotive marketing.”
“With Millennial Media’s SHOW & TELL unit, we were able to convey the key benefits of Entune’s voice recognition feature the way users would experience natively in an all-new 2014 Corolla,” said Dionne Colvin-Lovely, National Media Marketing Manager, Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. “We wanted to develop an experience that packaged key product messages in a fun and authentic way the Corolla target would notice and appreciate.”
The Toyota campaign will run on both tablets and smartphones for iOS and Android.
Unlike traditional “push advertising,” voice ads let consumers dictate the flow of the experience, and guide the ad into providing them with the most relevant content possible. The Voice SHOW & TELL ad unit
Are you short MM like the author of that article? Funny how desperate people become hoping they can sway people into doing what they "need" done because they found themselves on the WRONG side of a trade. ANY significant pullback in MM would SCREAM opportunity. Don't you think those who agreed to take just $12 million on a $230 million purchase know significant upside is ahead. This reminds me of those who chanted PP unloaded his 5 million shares.
A basher isn't capable of making that observation. Their every comment is deeply rooted in the bitterness of their losses. Rather than reposition themselves for profit, they spend their time fruitless, like empty handed cranky old people angry about something that happened in their youth.
If you picked the correct powerball numbers as the winning ticket you would have won too. The street doesn't care what you think or hype up. They voted collectively and as a result MM crashed. What happens from here remains to be seen. The major players who can buy MM don't seem too interested either.
He doesn't need to be there to collect. He holds in the 5 million share range. And his contract is well written so he is compensated well even if he leaves the company.
You've made it quite clear you are short MM. Is this your attempt to persuade someone to sell? Pretty sad to see someone so desperate.

Today we announced that Michael Barrett will be taking over as CEO of Millennial Media, and I will be moving on to become a venture advisor at NEA.
This is an exciting and momentous day for Millennial Media. There is never a perfect time for a transition of CEOs, but now is the right time. Coming off an impressive quarter, capped with the successful acquisition and integration of Jumptap, the momentum at the company could not be better. We have the best team and technology in the business, and are poised for continued success. With our upward trajectory as a company, and with the continued rapid growth of the mobile market, there could not be a better time, or proven leader, to become the new torch-bearer of the company.

Today I am thrilled to start what I know will be an amazing journey at Millennial Media. I am deeply honored to be the one to whom Paul passes his torch. I have long admired this company, and am determined to keep Millennial’s impressive track record going and growing. To be able to work at a company with such amazing talent, clients that are a broad representation of both the largest brands in the world, and the most successful companies in the app economy, is truly thrilling and humbling.

Agreed, they could of definitely used a far more appealing headline, however, going forward I see MM generating numerous great headlines as it shines brighter and brighter in the marketplace.
