I'm gonna need more than a date to jog my memory completely SG, but from context I'm assuming I asked you something about ECHO? Was Joel Barry (if I recall correctly) replaced as CEO before the buyout came?
I thought I recalled reading something like that somewhere myself, but when I searched, all I located was the following:
"We’ll be taking pre-orders for Rock Band 4 at our pre-order counter in the booth at PAX. We’ve already got tons of great pre-order incentives and also, if you pre-order the game at our booth, you’ll score some exclusive Rock Band 4 swag! We’ll have more details at the show!
Aside from all of the other awesome things we have going on during next weekend, we also have some special news for our dedicated Rock Band community. We’ll soon be announcing a major program just for you guys, and we’ll have more information to come before PAX begins, so stay tuned.
PAX PRIME EVENTS
Before the show even starts, Harmonix will be heading over at Amazon headquarters to showcase Rock Band 4 at the PAX Prime Day Zero Broadcast! Amazon will be streaming the entire event on Thursday starting at 4pm PST. Tune in to Amazon’s Twitch Channel to watch the event, or stream it from our own Harmonix Twitch Channel!"
I'm not certain I interpret that as saying that pre-orders will be routed through Amazon, but as you point out, PAX Prime is in Amazon's backyard, and if they can be persuaded to put their marketing muscle behind RB4, then that's a huge plus.
Five GameStops within a ten mile radius of my residence. I haven't visited any however. Collectively, we could learn a lot if a couple of dozen of us visited every store in our respective metro areas. Unfortunately, many here treat the message board as if it's a game of "Liar's Poker," so anything not independently verifiable is essentially worthless.
From what I can tell, pre-orders generated there are direct to MCZ, which means double the gross margin! Harmonix/Mad Catz have been hitting events one after the other all summer long. The little extra bit of margin could make 2q16 eps even better than we've speculated.
No worries. I was easily able to cut and paste what you posted into a spreadsheet, then extract just the symbols for import into a Yahoo portfolio for closer inspection. Mostly oil and gas so far, with a couple of biotechs.
You probably used one of the 95,000 words currently disallowed by Yahoo. ;-) My posts disappear for no known reason frequently.
and ties in with what we've all been been seeing lately:

Small caps trade at an avg EV/EBITDA premium of 12.7% vs large caps, the smallest premium since the financial crisis.
There was a chart, but alas, no way to show it here.
When the timing is right. I have my opinion regarding what "fair" value is for this stock. I fully expect the share price to over shoot that value on the way up.
I won't just "scale out of [my]...cheap shares," I will scale out of ALL my shares and never look back. I'm sure you'll sell all of your shares at the exact top, because that's what your "kind" always does. It's like magic.
According to MCZ's website, insiders are allowed to purchase beginning the second day following announcement of quarterly results until the last day of the quarter. They "recommend" that any transactions occur within the first ten days of that period. Today was number nine.
I'll be layering out in small blocks on the way up because that's how I do things, but it won't be at 46 cents.
PS: Is the worry here that a weaker Yuan and lower oil prices (manifested as lower transportation costs) will increase China's competitiveness against Mexico?
any speculation on who it might be? Tieton sold 29k shares prior to 6/30/15 per their last SEC filing. I wonder if it's them lightening their holding. Anybody think the last CC warranted continued selling?
It's going to be a "wall of worry" all the way up ulp. Some of those 38 cent share buyers are going to be tempted to take the "profit in hand" rather than wait for the "riskier" big payoff. Ain't that right bfrnk?
I'm afraid I'm a bit cash poor at the moment ulp. Time to break out that rolodex and start cold calling all those former colleagues with the "opportunity of a lifetime!"
on the packaging: "Mad Catz Interactive Inc. (Stock Symbol: MCZ - NYSE)." Just in case there is a future need to access the markets in order to "top off our capital position," might as well market the stock while the opportunity is present.
It def would be fun to see! And very low risk at $0.45. A million share buy would send the momo's currently hanging around on the sidelines into a buying frenzy. Too bad I don't have a free $450k at the moment ;-)
