I think it's a good possibility, too. Especially after I listened to the video. From what I gather a number of tech startups in Israel have been acquired. I think one of three things will happen. 1) By December ALSO has its rollout. 2) By December ALSO has folded its tents and is no more. 3) Between now and December a bigger company will absorb them. And I think "3" is the most likely. Need to keep in mind, this is the year VR/AR goes mainstream. ALSO is in the right place at the right time. But again, it wouldn't take much to make it disappear. Still, worth the gamble.
I think there is an excellent chance we will hear an announcement at or before earnings at the end of April/beginning of May. de Masi does want to keep the momentum rolling
I agree with giving Hollywood celebs their own moment in the sun. But I don't see a problem with announcing or releasing a sports player's game. Two different audiences. And, I think it is reasonable to believe DM will stagger announcements and releases of celeb games as to not overwhelm investors. I think a steady stream of releases will keep interest with the company going. Think of it like Apple releasing its products. One at a time to build anticipation. As for a sports release, soccer does have a worldwide audience. However, I'm more inclined to think they would go with a football or baseball player for the introduction to a sports celeb game. Then move on to soccer.
Again, it would benefit this board if you would reframe from responding to this poster. Oldno has it right, "Hold and ignore."
On Jan 29 of this year it was reported prestigious research group Foster & Sullivan has surveyed the European AR market and decided to bestow Infinity AR with the Technology Innovation Award. Not bad for such a small company. Still, there seems to be activity with ALSO without news. I'm taking a chance and picking up a few shares. Certainly cheap enough for a gamble.
sba, what's your knowledge of Corning (GLW) and their new gorilla glass? I understand they've blended their original glass with GT's scratch proof glass and made a glass that wont break.
For the most part "jmei" is harmless enough. Doesn't shout or call names. However, I don't feel he posts with a true conviction with his opinion for HIMX. Reading over past posts it appears the posts are created only to entice a response. It is like the child that continually tries to interrupt the adults having a conversation. I agree with the ignoring request. It would go a long way if no one responded to his posts. His posts are redundant and irrelevant. So please reframe from responding. Just let "jmei" slide. Thanks.
VP & IR Cannon Gregory J sold 3,094 shares @ $5.23 on Feb 18. And, de Masi bought 10K shares @ $3.78 on November 17. The information is based on open market trades at the market price.
BlackRock (BLK) is an investment company. Current price $380. Up $80 in one year. Up $180 in 5 yrs. They are comparable to an ETF. They take positions in many companies. Sometimes long, sometimes for a quick profit. BLK sees a profit in the short with Glu. They may, however, hold to see where it is going. You must admit there is potential growth with Glu. Given BLK's track record I think it is a good sign they have invested in Glu and continue to hold it. But, I don't see their investment in Glu being anything more then an investment.
And here's the killer, Steve44643. oil sells Glu at the very top price of the day. The very top. And buys Zynga at the very low of the day. Add to this before and after the earnings report he was yelling at everyone to unload their shares cause "Glu Is A Trading Stock! Not An Investment Stock." Anyone foolish enough to follow his advice would have lost money selling then. Even oil wasn't that stupid as he states he sold today. As Bugs Bunny used to say, "What a maroon..."
Closing up 10 cents is "negative" to you????
Well, pal, if HIMX close up Friday then I welcome this kind of negative.
Z can state they will deliver 100% mobile-first games, but, Zynga will need successful games. Otherwise, they can drop as many games as they want, but will not dominate. So far Z has not had a very successful history of games. My money stays with Glu. Better games, better management.
HIMX is up 22 cents in AH. Gee, that can't be good. It might be a omen HIMX may do well tomorrow morning. Yikes!
I think in the broader picture this is the year Glu moves back to $6/$7 range with steady income from current and new games. Last year the KKH hype pushed it to the $7's. But, there was nothing there, just hype. This year Glu will be making money and expanding its creative teams. Having Katy Perry will certainly give a good bounce. So I get wanting Glu to stay above $5. But with little happening the next few weeks, and no news, the price may just drift. But Glu is becoming a solid company, well managed, creative, no debt.
Not selling, too.
I'd like to believe he got his shares on the cheap and took a nice profit. But, all indications show Glu is more likely to increase than decrease. Also, for a VP he wasn't holding that many shares. As Steve44 points out he trades and there were no others dumping. It's just his timing. Maybe he was heading to Vegas on Feb 6.
The shares represented 62% of his stake in Glu, which were divested in multiples transactions dated Feb 5. He now has a 48,161 stake in the company.
Have to question the timing even if he was in need of the cash. Any thoughts on this?
After reading de Masi's article I don't think he'd want an Asian company involved. His drive is to have western companies in control, to partner, to avoid the east moving in.
Black Rock took a 5% stake in Glu just before Glu's earnings report. Glu's numbers were strong, so too the forward guidance. Glu sp moved up about 50%. Good timing for Black Rock. Have to wonder what brings them to ARRY.
Should add, I think $15 is a fair conservative price. If they can score with Perry and say another celeb and a couple of sports games, it would not be unrealistic to see between $20 and $30 a share. But this is very broad speculation. Seeing $7 in the next weeks or so, and no buyout, I'll be happy.
