    Insert the above text into google and you'll see the reference confirming the partnership.

    I'm not sure about the details of how they are partnering or why they are partnering, but a partnership with a $2 billion dollar internet infrastructure provider can't hurt.

    It appears E-Future may be aiming to bundle their propriety software and solutions with larger companies more rapidly broaden the acceptance of these products while increasing their reach.

    Don't know more than that.

    I went into defensive posture today. Sold out of JRJC entirely and took a small $5000.00 loss. Today's market is likely the beginning of further declines and signals either a short or long term market top - so I'd like to sit on the sidelines for awhile with some cash tucked away in case of a meltdown where I can scoop E-Future up on the cheap.

    I knew the market was going to tank after the 4% GDP growth number showed the market was toppy. I heavily shorted XIV to benefit from in increase in market volatility while benefiting from the the horrors of the poor structure of the ETN. Covered too early but still made a huge gain.

    E-Future is down today, likely because somebody in this thing was leveraged and was trying to limit their portfolio risk. Still be valued as a level which shows the market doesn't trust Mr. Yan, but should he deliver, this stock will play catch-up in a major way. I don't see any short-term factors which will create a host of new buyers, so we could test $3.00 again before another whipsaw gain to the upside.

    Have seen further confirmation that E-Future was part of a 13 company team working with JingDong to use convenience stores as a distribution point throughout major cities in China. Found them mentioned with JingDong in an investment newsletters written in Chinese regarding O2O' shaping the retail landscape in China.

    MyStore probably isn't signing up subscribers at the rate we hoped because I haven't seen much evidence of any large new retailers using the platform. Yet at least Yonghui still plans on expanding the in-house MyStore powered platform to all of their stores throughout China and initial consumer reactions seem to be positive.

    You can't just compare one company to another like that. Each company has company specific strengths and weaknesses, different personalities, different capabilities to foresee future trends etc.

    GOMO is 7.5x P/S. E-Future is 0.6 P/S. So E-Future would go much higher than $20.00 if it were to play catchup with GOMO. Can you clarify the relationship between these two stocks because I'm completely missing it.

    $400.00 a share? 2 billion+ dollar valuation? Maybe in 10 years if they plan, execute, and innovate to perfection.

    If E-Future can prove the current business model is a profitable one servicing 42 of the top 100 Chinese retailers while demonstrating MyStore can generate profitable revenues over a period of time, $20.00 might be in the cards. Without any further updates to add to my current perspective on E-Future, I'd have to be a partial seller at that level. $400.00 is a pipe dream.

    Don't know what is influencing the price at the moment...

    A few positive factors include...

    1. Adam's Book continuing to sell fairly well in China averaging an Amazon Sales Rank in China of about 20,000. Pretty impressive for a niche book about retail strategy and the future of mobile retail. Establishing himself as a thought-leader in China can only be positive over the long-term for the company.

    2. Shanghai's first Micro-Store being opened by an Appliance Company and receiving many positive mentions in the Chinese Media.

    3. A few more Micro-Stores being opened around the country by smaller, regional retailers. I don't spam these boards every time I find out about a new one because I don't think any single new Micro-Store launch by a smaller regional players makes a significant difference. Compounded, however, these launches may be meaningful. The more small regional players they can add to their platform, the more pressure that larger retailers will have to offer competing offers on the platform by including themselves in the MyStore channel.
