    They didn't like that #

    I was one expecting (hoping for huge numbers). As I thought about it last night, I wondered what we would need to get TAPM over $1. The number I had was 1M is revenue, and the more I thought about the more I felt that was a it of stretch. Which is obvious now.

    I pared my position, still holding half. Tomorrow could bring an announcement. Regardless I will hold remaining shares for a while. All arrows are pointing up for TAPM, just not as quickly as I or others had wanted. (admitedly got a little greedy here)

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    My eyes were bigger than my stomach. I was hoping for blow out revenue and earnings. Instead I got very steady growth and a promising future. I have to laugh at myself expecting $2 this week. But I shouldn't be dissappointed since TAPM will get there in 2016, just not in November of 2015.

    I wonder if they announced early because there is more news they will release Friday.

    From their press release, further pointing to Video Poker VIP as a gowth engine...

    "In Q1 2016, we plan on releasing unique multiplayer functionality within this game, which we project will have a significant positive impact on key engagement and monetization metrics. We view this game, and the social casino category in general, as important to our future growth strategy."

    I was wondering if they would pre announce. Quarterly revenue of $728,128; up 191% year-over-year. Nice, steady growth

    Q3 is a turning point for TAPM

    Impressive move this week so far. Volume has been good and the price has been steadily rising each day. Today's volume is almost 200k with 8 minutes to go and pps at .42. I wonder if we can hit .50 by Thursday EOD going into the PR Friday morning?

    This move so far this week going into earnings is very positive.

    Earnings week volume (11/9/15 - 11/13/15)

    Tuesday was around 85k, not bad, but I was hoping for 100k all week. 8*) Today (Wednesday) w TAPM is at 73k by 11am. So 100k should easily be passed by eod.

    With a public float of only 7 Million, this could pop nicely.

    Common Shares Outstanding (a/o Jun 30, 2015) 56,909,303
    Public Float (a/o Jun 30, 2015) 7,728,723

    I've been following, and in/out, of Tapinator for the last 2 1/2 years. Momentum has been slowly building. But I get the feeling that this next QTR release is going to be an eye opener and a game changer for the PPS.

    I know I sound like a homer and pumper, but why invest in a company if you aren't excited about it? And this upcoming Q3 release has me more excited than any other release. Prior releases had me hoping/wondering what earnings/revenue may be. But now my anticipation is high because of all the releases and progress Tapinator has had over the last year.

    I don't think I have followed any one company or payed attention to its progress as much I have for Tapinator.

    I do not have a sell point. I will wait for the PR and make my decision on what to do with my shares afterward. There are so many intangibles with Tapinator and its expanding into new markets. Is this a $1 stock, $4, $10 or just .38 cents? I can see this being +$10 sometime in 2016. But one quarter at a time...

    Video Poker VIP first full quarter

    I will be interested to see the revenue for Video Poker VIP. This is the first full quarter for the social gaming app. The whole Social Casino category is projected to be a growth engine for TAPM.

    It is hard to know what the revenue numbers will be this qtr, but it easy to have +100% growth the 1st 2-3 years of a company like TAPM. Can Q3 revenues grow another 50% above the Q2?

    350k ...wow. That is impressive considering we are still before earnings. I would be surprised if TAPM can match that tomorrow. But who knows if something is brewing. (or just anticipation of earnings)

    BBSI HALTED!!!

    palosparkflash palosparkflash Nov 9, 2015 5:41 PM Flag

    Ideas? Anyone holding shares in BBSI is in trouble. THe low of the year was $20. This news could send BBSI plunging below that. I hold no position. I may put a buy order in for $15.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • 210,000 shares traded by noon today!?? wow, that is impressive. TAPM sees this type of volume only the day or two after earnings. But 210k 4 days before earnings?? again, wow.

    I don't know if something is up or if TAPM is finally being discovered.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    That sounds like a crazy notion for TAP to hit $2 this week. But it would not surprise me....

    2013 Revenues were 131,000
    2014 Revenues were 943,000

    Q1/2015 Revenues = 411,883, EBITA 5,840
    Q2/2015 Revenues = 615,000 EBITA 187,592

    The earnings trend and EBITA direction are impressive.

    2 years ago, TAPM briefly touched $2. Granted it should not have been that high at the time, but that is a recent high water mark.

    A major goal os Ilya Nikolayev is to get TAPM listed on the Nasdaq. He has hired the right people, he has made the right investments, expanded into untouched markets, ...he is doing all the right things.

    I really have high expectations for TAPM, whether it is a buyout or continued growth. But now is the time to be in TAPM. $2 by Friday, maybe a little exhuberance on my part, but not out of the realm of possibility once momentum gets going.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
