    "The earnings schedule is driven primarily by a change in the audit team personnel, the delay in the auditor’s commencement of the audit, as well as additional procedures required by our auditors."

    end of the year shares will be making new 52 week highs

    the next couple earnings reports will show continued improvement and turn back to profitability.

    you don't buy when everyone else is - you buy after they've all raced for the exits and tossed their shares at rock bottom prices - just like in the movie Trading Places.

    with volume back down to historical levels, now is the time to buy - by the time the masses come back again, we'll be sitting pretty.

  • shares going to need to take a breather

    $15.00 bottom?

    You shouldn't use corporate money or the corporate name in the press to make a personal statement.

    The press release, your statement, and the decision to spend more advertising on ESPN is no different than what loudmouth Nick Caporella does over at FIZZ.

    You're more than welcome to your own opinions - there's absolutely no reason to tie PRPH to them. If ESPN provides better advertising rates, better frequency, and translates into better sales then wonderful - spend more advertising with them. No need for the press release or getting involved with this.

    The Nov 2012 agreement was for up to 2.5 million shares.

    I did a quick comparison of the outstanding shares from the 2012 10-K and the just completed 10-Q and the difference was about 1.6 million shares - that wouldn't include shares that have been purchased since March 31. So, it is possible that Ted put shares to them over the past several weeks and used up the remainder of the 2.5 million shares under the prior agreement - thus the impetus for the new agreement.

    This new agreement is for up to 3 million shares.

    congrats - that's a great buy/price.

    I have been watching things and I believe the market maker is just out there playing games trying to scare people into selling. shows this big 16,000 share ask, picks up shares from people tossing at the bid, then moves the bid and ask up a penny when he's gotten all he can. end of day and beginning of next day - he pushes it down again and starts the process all over again.

    eventually the game will end - likely once earnings come out in a couple weeks.

    The future looks very good as government is well aware of the issues and the need to upgrade the highway infrastructure and fund these new/advanced projects. Industry is also well aware of the issues/challenges and will be making investments of their own.

    I was listening to a story on NPR over the weekend on Bill Ford's recent TED talk and it had to do with smart cars and the need to have a fully integrated transportation system - as far as cars communicating with each other, among other things. The thesis was that this will all be required because of the population growth and the numbers of people on the road driving - it will all be unmanageable without it. Smart cars are just going to bring even more people on to the highways - for example, old folks who can no longer drive, they will be on the road.

    The title of the talk is "How Does Henry Ford's Great-Grandson Envision The Future?" - if you google it the first link return is to the NPR site where you can listen to both the NPR story and the TED talk.

    As you listen, you can envision how ITI products/services can/will find a place in this future.

    Oh absolutely - this stuff is not going to happen overnight and definitely not in the next couple years. However, to get to the point of a fully integrated system you evolve what you have and grow into it. There are many projects along the way and no doubt ITI is going to be involved with many of them.

    Anyhow, the NPR story just confirmed what most of us here already know - it's just really nice hearing other people in the industry beginning to talk about it.

    and well deserved!

    As folks are doing house cleaning of their portfolios, looking to sell the garbage and rotate into quality, ISNS certainly qualifies as stinky garbage.

    Shares could easily fall another 50% - because sales continue to decrease and losses continue to increase.

    Hey, where are they going to get new cash from? They will likely run out by Jan 1. They may be running on fumes right now.

    Ignore pumping Seeking Alpha authors.

    Laurence Levy concluded, "The current demand environment is as good as we have seen in the last five years, with organic growth across our commodity mix now supplementing the market share gains that we have been able to capture over the last several years. Further, our recently completed refinancing reduces our combined cost of debt and preferred stock and provides us with cash flow flexibility to further invest in our business. We are excited about the introduction of our newest vessel in the second half of calendar 2015, which will allow for future organic growth and will be accretive to our profitability and earnings per share."

    If things are so wonderful, why are bigger losses being posted YOY?

    You're excited about the new vessel in the second half of next year? You think investors are going to give you that much of a leash with the numbers being posted? How much of a loss the remainder of this year and first half of 2015? And this new vessel is going to change things so much? Wait, I can imagine the excuses already..."...well, unfortunately the margins on the new vessel are not as good as we had hoped. We obviously financed it and have interest payments on the debt, and because { - fill in the blank - } expectations were not met, so we posted more losses". Prove me wrong - until then, my words are as good as management's.

    And, as in previous announcement, I love how all the text in the announcement discusses everything but what the bottom line number was - I wonder why?

    Garbage and more garbage. Eventually investors are going to get tired. There is little basis for the shares to be valued at $6, or $5, or even $4 - there are no profits and likely won't be any.

  • I smell another capital raise coming soon.

    Seen this movie already, I know how it ends.

    "They just announce confirmation of a first new order within China."

    Makes you wonder if there was any bribery involved? Hmmm?

    And please tell me how they will resolve the cash situation? Do you not agree that they are running extremely low on cash and will require an infusion by some means soon?

    I'll take shares at last year's price at this time.

    I'm patient - will take them as cheaply as you want to give them...let's go for $1.55 and $1.45 like we had last summer!

    sophia! great that we run into each other once again...we gravitate towards similar things...I want back in on SBFG below $8 - we'll see. congrats on your quick win with SIGM past couple weeks.

    here are a few others I know you'll like:

    DRAD - below $3.50 is good, below $3.40 is great, below $3.30 is exceptional
    EVOL - $8.25 is good, below $8 is great
    PCTI - may still have a little air to be let out from Seeking Alpha article pumping it last week - under $7.20 is good.
    ULBI - if you can stand watching paint dry, it will eventually be beautiful once it does dry. - under $3.80 is where you want to buy - thinly traded
