    Not sure how high this can go today. But .94 on Jan 4th may be the resistance area.

    Does anyone know the actual float on GBSN?

    Sentiment: Hold

  • Looks like a few paid bashers "nandha" "amzn..." are polluting the board try to scare people and affect the stock price. The sad part is that their incessant negative comments and trading tactics do seem to affect a stocks price for a while.

    It is easier for them to move a low stock like EGRX (6M float). Congrats so far muck rakers.

    Sentiment: Buy

    Barclays downgraded with a price target of $15 while Credit Suisse upgraded with a target of $23.

    No can agree where to price this, that is why the wild swings.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • ... is day traders. When I start hearing people say they just bought 8,000 or 10,000 shares or are averaging down on a thinly traded/low float stock.... that is usually a bad omen.

    The reason is because those traders are willing to dump their share 1) when PPS rises a 20-30 cents thus muting upward movement. 2) when PPS starts to fade they bail and cut their losses. thus sending stock to new lows.

    I hope I am wrong, but I think PSG will sink below $3 due to day traders' impatience.

    In reality, announcing 125k instead of 135k for the qtr and also payong down debt shouldn't equate to a 64% drop, But this is not reality, this is day trading.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • Two firms reduced the price target to $6, which is almost double the current stock price. LOL

    Current PPS is over done. But that doesn't mean it can't go lower.

    what to do what to do...

    3 day rule, worthy of a play here

    The float has turned in the last 3 days. Float is only 10 Million. 3.3 Million traded today so far and only 2.6 Million. That means no long time sellers left. This is just day traders playing with it now. They can still take this lower of course. But all sellers who would effect real momentum are gone.

    Sentiment: Buy

    ASPS was over $35 on Friday Then the plummet started ...$25 on Monday, then $19 on Tuesday. Today it is down to low $18's after initially gaping higher. There is still some risk with ASPS. But the PPS after 3 days of selling has improved the risk/reward prospects. Dipping my toe at these levels.

    Sentiment: Buy

    only a 10 million share float. It has traded 6-7 million in last 2 days. Not many long term holders left I would guess. Mostly day traders yesterday and today. A low float stock is easy to manipulate by some traders.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • Endo International PLC said it would shutter its litigation-burdened Astora Women's Health division at the end of March after failing to find a buyer.

    They finally got this albotross off their neck. They have some claims/settlement issues still. But long term ENDP looks brighter after dumping Astora.

    Well, if they are trying to keep their business and earnings a secret, they are doing an awesome job. The only hope I have for waiting such a long time to release earnings is that are getting the t's and c's straight on be acquired.

    Sentiment: Buy

    What leads you to believe that? I thought that they were going to release last week. I have not seen a firm earnings date posted anywhere..

  • palosparkflash by palosparkflash Feb 19, 2016 12:43 PM Flag

    Well finally a little interest. Someone bought a decent block. TAPM now at 80k in volume. I can't remember the last time it had 100k.

    I thought earnings would have been last night or this morning. I hope they don't announce AH tonight on a Friday.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Earnings tonight?

    I have been following TAPM for 2 years. So I am patient, to a point, and also believe, like you, that TAPM is a good long term play. But the PPS on Aug 2014 was .38. While revenue and earnings have steadily increased, the PPS has not reflected the improvement, except for a pop here and there.

    I don't think I am looking for instant gratification, (it would be nice though) I just would like to see the PPS and future potential be reflected in the PPS.

    I do agree that the small float is a contributor to the lack of movement.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • palosparkflash by palosparkflash Feb 18, 2016 3:11 PM Flag

    It sure has been quiet from Tapinator. I hope it is because they are being acquired. At some point they will be.

    Regardless, of being purcased or not, I don't have a good sense on their earnings. It would seem that they have enough games now to keep the qtr on qtr improvement. But it is hard to tell. Volume shows a lack of interest. Let's hope that changes tonight

    Volume and chatter down compared to Q3 buildup

    Dyna, yes the float is small.But last qtr at this time we trading volume was 100-200k/day. Interest has waned.

    I don't understand you being ok with PPS staying in the same range for a couple more qtrs. TAPM has new releases in Q2 that did not show results in Q3, but should in Q4. The Middle East deals won't show results until the next 2 qtrs, granted. But there were plenty of other initiatives prior to Q3 of last year that should show results.

    Sentiment: Buy

    Why would you wait for a sell off to buy more if you are that confident in TAPM? Just buy now. I am actually considering adding, but I don't want to hope for a mediocre report to drop the price lower. That doesn't make sense. I would rather buy on the way up after a strong report.

    Sentiment: Buy

    Upgrades LOL.. Fossil price target lowered to $38 from $52 at Stephens.

    This is a huge short covering rally, that is it..

    I disagree. To move the PPS, they need to show something this QTR. They have been sounding positive going forward for the last several quarters, which is all well and good. By and large they have been growing nicely the last two years. The 2015 revenues will be nearly triple of 2014.

    But they have been in .25-.35 range for to long. I believe this deserves to be a $1 stock, if not more. But it is not going to get enough attention to move the needle in that direction if Q4 revenue is not a strong step up from Q3.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • In November prior to earnings, volume was very strong going into the Q3 announcent. Some days over 200k was traded. This time volume is much more subdued. I am not sure if it is because Q3 was dissappointing for many. I think that TAPM has fallen off the radar of many.

    Regardless, numbers are what will move this stock now. Here is the recent history:

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

    Q1/2015 Revenues = 411,883
    Q2/2015 Revenues = 615,000
    Q3/2015 Revenues = 728,000 (or 725,000)

    Two questions....what will Q4 be? and what will it take to get TAPM over $1.

    With so much happening in Q2 and Q3, the revenue could really jump in Q4. Or it could just continue in a decent upward path. I hope to see 1 Million in revenue. But 850,000-900,000 is more reasonable, which still shows very solid growth.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Is Credit Suisse wrong or is reaction over done? Now under $16. $28 price targe looks pretty good.

    Sentiment: Hold
