    where'd you read this?

    if true, i hope the current board and RR recognize the truth of the letter and acquiesce relatively painlessly...

    no question that PR has been improving with the new PR-firm hire, i'm not complaining about that. but i hope it doesn't just continue but ACCELERATES...

    I mean, any business can find something to crow about in its operations. A stock like EBIX could really benefit from a consistent stream of good news every few days. periodic, not sporadic. boom, boom, boom, boom. just find something to crow about, anything. keep the stock in the newswires, gain attention, etc.

    i know, i know, PR can't replace fundamentals and growth, i agree, but there's too much silence between earnings reports, which creates a lot of uncertainty and lack of interest. if the only time the stock moves much is earnings releases, that's only 4 times a year, you aren't going to get much interest and you make yourself prone to the short attacks. steady stream of info is itself a defense against short attacks. being silent just creates a vacuum of information, and shorts love a vacuum of information about a stock.

    did they say how long they've been invested in ebix? they may have waited until there was no question of health and then gone in big and released the letter. these folks aren't stupid, they're very smart. they probably don't hold positions until they're ready to strike, and then they go in hard

    Although I think the letter is correct and in earnest, I also think it's clear they know EBIX needs some very vocal and public votes of confidence to get some investor confidence, and so I think that's as much what this letter is about. That's why they lead off in the opening with how fundamentally strong the company is, and the whole letter is about dispelling the cloud hanging over. This letter is intended to be a very vocal and public vote of confidence, and the market has taken it as such.

    There's no real-time info re short interest. Data is released twice monthly, data is as of 15th and last day of month, but data released on an 8-day delay.

    No idea how long until a report... Someone made a good (if cynical) point on another post—he has to tell all his newsletter recipients to BUY before releasing a report. LOL, Wall Street...

    But anyone following stock has gotta give it a big upgrade, and up the price target substantially, right?

    EPS estimate for Q3 was .36, turned out to be .47.
    EPS estimates for next four quarters are currently .37, .39, .38, .38, according to ETrade.
    That's gonna go up substantially.

    This Q's flat revenue will weigh on stock but new acquisitions and return to growth strategy, with continued margins... Can't help but think things looking very good...

    Ebix share buyback is great news, but...

    The govt never really announces that its investigation is over. But while the investigation is active, the company's hands are tied in a lot of ways, so based on recent news, it's pretty clear that the investigation is not active. EBIX is able to move on, with HQ real estate purchase, with credit agreement and huge share buyback, better PR, etc. These are all evidence investigation is inactive and that EBIX is taking a more pro-active approach to refuting the short thesis.

    As time passes, investigation overhang will continue to wane and share price issues will be about whether EBIX can return to earnings *GROWTH*.

    Sentiment: Buy
