    Re: Shorts... According to European press: (Oct 16) JP Morgan Asset Management has raised its short position yesterday on Gameloft to 0.7% against 0.6% of the capital on October 9

    Then take the billions from the sale you made recently and rebuild Yahoo to the power house it could be...

    With watches, cell phones, smart glasses, gaming systems and even electric screwdrivers using gyroscopes and/or accelerometers would it make sense for one of the big manufacturers to pick up one of the little guys?

    IMHO, this company is small enough that any of the big boys could buy them out... Of course, there market is growing fast enough that why would they ever want to give up their independence?

    According to an S&P release from about an hour ago, Yahoo owns a 24% minority stake in Alibaba

    Cramer makes it sound like the current price could turn out to be just the value of their Alibaba shares and that the rest of Yahoo isn't priced in at all.

    This is an outstanding long term buy and hold stock.

    It should be watched by anyone here who's been on the edge about buying or holding.

  • Of course, Yahoo's coverage of GameLoft won't tell you that because the company hasn't released an official press release. FYI, if you Google for Spider-Man Unlimited then you'll find several app stores, blogs and a few comic/gaming mags that have raving reviews, video and much more.

    Some day soon the market may wake up and recognize GameLoft as one of the top gaming manufacturers; unfortunately it is currently a company that only gamers have heard of... I guess that's not so unfortunate for anyone trying to acquire shares but it must be fairly disappointing for insiders and employees who thought their hard work would be recognized by the market.

    Good catch, thank you for pointing that out... Personally I'm invested in both companies but feel that Zagg will probably benefit the most from their association because everyone's heard of Zagg but very few know of the tiny harris family :) I would have never guessed that harris had that much ownership; perhaps they are better investors than the market gives them credit for.

    It would be a match made in the heavens... Few have ever heard of GameLoft (because they are a French company) but if you check out their website you'll find that they already have over a million downloads per day, but their market cap is just a fraction of DreamSky. Imagine what DreamSky could do with all those brilliant games converted to the Chinese market !!! The Sky would be the limit...

    1.20 ++ After Hours

    ready, good catch! It looks like the judge made his decision early Friday morning (in Spain) which would certainly explain why things are looking up today! Clearly it takes awhile for some of us to catch up on the news from Spain which could explain the gradual yet steady increase throughout the day today. FYI, I didn't know the Antibioticos decision was released until you mentioned it. IMHO, the after hours volume may still be attributed to momentum traders who knew something was going on simply due to the increase in volume and price.

    It will be very interesting to see what happens on Monday; hopefully it continues to run up and shows strength throughout all of next week.

    Have a great weekend!!!

    I didn't see a press release yet I suspect what we’re seeing is a few momentum traders coming into the game. I pretty sure that Metabolix was one of the biggest percentage gainers for the week in terms of both price and volume and that got MBLX onto a few lists. The type of lists that your momentum traders keep a close eye on… Of course, there could be some sort of news that leaked out but if that were the case I’d expect the volume to be in the millions instead of the hundreds of thousands.

    I searched for info on the July financing of $20Mil and found an article with the following statement and the article does not mention Zagg: This current round of funding was raised at an increased valuation from the previous round and led by Iron Gate Capital along with follow-on investments from Translink Capital and Delta Electronics as new investors. Existing investors including Harris & Harris Group, Prudence Holdings and VY Capital also participated in the financing.

    Perhaps you could give me a string to search for that will lead me to an explanation of Zagg's recent investment?

    JT, thank you for the update... It saddens me that Zagg has gone from nearly 100%, to 50%, to 20% and now down to 10%. It makes me wonder how smart Zagg's management is? In a world of liquid steal, gorilla glass and sapphire glass... Screen protector technology is going the way of the dodo bird while Waterblock technology is preparing to stretch its wings and soar. I realize that Zagg is still the easiest way for investors to participate in HzO's upcoming success story, but I wish they would stop the dilution and begin holding tight to what they have.

    FYI, In Star Wars there was always hope because there was another Jedi... If you are here mostly for Zagg's investment in HzO then you might want to take a look at Harris & Harris Group as they are also investors. I'm not sure what percentage they have but I believe that they are one of the many that keeps investing each time a new round is opened.

    Zagg's potential goes up whenever a new phone releases as they tend to create lots of products but the HzO play is certainly a hidden gem in the Zagg portfolio. The HzO website claims that over a million devices already have HzO technology inside. That's up a lot since this time last year when I could only find a few products (most not designed for the average consumer) with HzO technology inside (things like a waterproof compass, a $6,000 smart phone and a sport GPS/locator).

    Every time Apple releases a new product there will always be those here who will leap to the conclusion that Apple is going to incorporate HzO inside their latest product. What most of those don't know is that Apple will test a technology for years before incorporating it into their product. HzO is not the easiest technology to incorporate because you have to solve problems with the battery (keeping the contacts working) and with the screen (keeping water out from between the glass).

    I highly recommend anyone who thinks the newest iPhone will incorporate Zagg technology try Googling for both Apple and HzO. The majority of the press and their speculation was two years ago; at the same time that many were speculating that Samsung was talking to Zagg.

    Now consider this, Samsung has released a water resistant phone but isn't using HzO; instead they are using (less reliable, easily compromised) gasket and seal technology... Two years is just about the right amount of time to test a product like HzO, compensate for short comings (like water behind screens) and incorporate the technology into ones production line. I believe that if Apple inked a deal with HzO then they might ink a deal that excludes all (or at least most) other cell phone companies. Thus far the only phone that incorporates HzO technology costs thousands of dollars.

    IMHO, the time is right and next week well find out for sure... IMHO, if Apple doesn't use HzO this time it is their loss. Over a million devices already do...

    That's fairly old news (July 11st) yet the potential Flextronics brings has long reaching implications. I also like the fact that they got a large round of financing in early July and that they are now proclaiming that over 1 million devices are protected by their technology.

    The financing has some implications for Zagg investors because it means that HzO has the funds needed for rapid growth; unfortunately, it also means that Zagg now has yet a smaller piece of the pie.

    Does anyone here know what Zagg's percentage of HzO is now?

    Thanks for any help you can give!
