    They didn't like that #

    Money, hang in there. With such a small float and low pps, many speculators bought 10,000-50,000 shares. When they didn't get a blow out quarter, they sold their shares , easily moving this low float stock down.

    Because they announced early, I am half expecting some more news tomorrow. We'll see.

    They missed by a little over 10% and that is a mile.!!l LOL too funny. I wonder who is short.

  • palosparkflash palosparkflash Dec 1, 2015 3:57 PM Flag

    They expire 02/08/2016. Don't know price. Certainly some time recover from the RPRX related fall today. It fell today on very low volume and broad bid/asks.

  • palosparkflash palosparkflash Jan 8, 2016 1:41 PM Flag

    Totally agree. Once under $5 selling increased. Some margin orders I would guess. The degree of selling is overdone. But unless there are buyer to come in, it stil may drift lower. At this point, there are just a lack of buyers. It may need to pierce $4 to get some buyers.

    Granted...I was a little more optimistic than I should have been. However, the FDA clearance is not a non-event. This is a start that help it getting the rest in place. No reason to be up 1-2 dollars, but no reason to be down either.

  • EGL forecasting $2 Billion in revenue in 2016, forward PE was 11, now 7...6,000 employees...

    Ok, the earnings forecast is a big miss. but they are still forecasting 1.15. EGL is not going out of business, they are investing in future business.. ergo the miss.

    The magnitude of this drop is a bit of a head scratcher.

    I don't get it

    This move should surprise no one. IMPV is trading at a lofty valuation Forward P/E 159.97 and
    PEG of 57.65. and its forecast loss for Q1 was double of the expected loss. When a stock like IMPV trades at lofty valuations, it needs to surprise on higher future EPS not lower.

    Sentiment: Hold

    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.

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

    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)

    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 saw a 15, 16, and 17 $ price targets this morning. And surprisingly positive remarks by most analysts. Go figure. Don't know what to make of it all. Many feel NMBL now a take over target.

    Huge short contingent, covering today

    by palosparkflash Feb 10, 2016 10:29 AM
    palosparkflash palosparkflash Feb 10, 2016 12:29 PM Flag

    This is going just as I expected. With an avg volume of just over 4M and about 23M short shares, there is a lot of covering to do.

    I understand why people were short on SCTY when it was in the 40's and 50's. Now it is under 25. Nice trade for those short. But at some point a short has to decide when is enough profit. Yesterday's earnings provided enough initial panic to drive SCTY below 20. But the underlying situation with SCTY is not bad, as analysts are pointing out.

    So what does than mean...a substantial portion of shorts cover and move on to other positions. Now 21.5 and crawling higher. This could go green with all the covering.

    Did one of their patients die??

    For a while I thought I was the one who died. I bought all the way down to low 40's, then got a call from my broker. I was in a low equity situation. They wanted me to lquidate or add funds. Did an ACH transfer. whew. Up $10 since then...

    Sentiment: Hold

  • palosparkflash by palosparkflash Jan 8, 2016 12:53 PM Flag

    attribute to the easy manipulation. Plunging $3 below all time low is a bit ridiculous. True TCS has dissapointed, but MMs have taken over today

    Ok, I am back. I was in TAPM prior to last earnings announcement. I was dissappointed by its move after last earnings. Even though I felt TAPM 1M in revenue to get real attention. 728k in Qtr revenue was still great. But when it didn't move up I bailed.

    I don't think there is doubt that TAPM is being built to be sold. The question is when. Part of that depends on continued growth and an appreciation of PPS.

    I believe earnings is 2/11 or 2/12.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • palosparkflash by palosparkflash Jan 5, 2016 3:46 PM Flag

    It looks like there has been some bargain hunting once people realized what was going on.

    Also, as interest has increased, the spread in the bid/ask has narrowed.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
