Surprised stock is down. I'm seeing junky stocks soar when they report a smaller than expected loss. MLR announces a monster quarter...and stock is down. Yeah they benefited from some government orders that won't be there every quarter. But they sure sounded bullish on the CC. Lower gas prices and a harsh winter both helping their business. CEO said backlog was the strongest it's ever been! Also like the dividend increase...current yield over 3%. Not too shabby.
Haha ur kidding right?? This acquisition is a HUGE positive. Yet you think the stock is going back to where it was before the acquisition was announced? Talk about dream on! MTSL spiked up to $2.30 when the acquisition was announced. It's going back there, and eventually much higher.
Do yourself and favor and read thru the proxy statement filed last week. In particular, pages 30-32. Where you see the impressive Vexigo growth and the big boost that Vexigo financials will give to MTSL. For the 9 months ended 9/30/14, Vexigo would more than DOUBLE the company's revenues. And MTSL's loss of over $1M would swing all the way to a PROFIT of over $1M. If you figure 40% more shares due to the acquisition, looks like the combined company would have earnings of .16/share for the 9 months! And keep in mind that Q4 is a seasonally strong quarter for Vexigo, that MTSL can significantly cut their losses, and Vexigo should ramp up revenues and earnings much higher next year.
Writing is on the wall here. Smart money is buying. Once the acquisition closes, MTSL is going to report some eye-popping comps thanks to Vexigo. Monster revenue increases and dramatic improvements on the bottom line. I think 2015 earnings of .30+ is very possible. Stock will be double or triple the current price if that happens. But hey, keep waiting for 90 cents.
Only negative was this comment from the CEO:
"While in 2014 we reached exceptional revenues and operating margins, some new deals that we expected to close in 2014 were delayed, thus our booking is lower than a year ago.”
Anyone find a bookings or backlog figure? Maybe it'll be in the 20-F filing. Guess booking being down isn't great news. But they're opening a new office and sound upbeat otherwise.
With security threats everywhere, seems like there should be high demand from this new offering from TCCO.

Maybe you guys are right. There was a large buyer this afternoon with a sizable bid at $3.23. First time I've seen buying like that in what feels like weeks. Someone wants in ahead of earnings!
I'm surprised BDR isn't trading much higher. Hard to find a stock trading at DOUBLE the current price with earnings as good as BDR the last 2 quarters. Plus we have the recent agreement with DirecTV that should have a VERY positive impact on revenues & earnings in 2015. Stock a steal in the $1's IMO.
Would love to see it, but think you guys are being too optimistic. Q4 has been a weaker quarter for them the last couple years as you noted. I do think they'll show a rather dramatic improvement vs. the year ago Q4. And the stock should move higher. But would be happy with any profit in Q4. Maybe earnings of .02-.04. If you think they could put up .10, you guys should be loading the boat in the low $3's. Stock would soar to $5+ on .10 quarter imo.
Yeah hope not, but you could be right. Nasdaq is rocking today, and EVOL is still weak. I can't imagine why anyone would sell below $8.50, especially with a 5.2% dividend yield. Unless they knew about some bad news lurking. Maybe not. If everything is fine, EVOL will be back over $10 soon and this will have proven to be an excellent buying opportunity.
Yeah can't argue with that. Next 2 quarters likely around breakeven to slightly profitable imo. But this stock has jumped from around $4 to the $6's on 2 different occasions in the last 6 months. So any decent order news, and this low floater is headed back over $5. A large order and maybe even $6-$8.
Wondering the same. Was today's news bad or something? Seems insignificant. Not sure who would sell in the $8's. What other profitable, growing Nasdaq software companies with a 5%+ dividend yield are people buying instead of EVOL?
I don't think people were expecting much from this report. You're right, last quarter did stink. But the outlook sounds more positive than it has in many quarters. Backlog over $4M at the end of the quarter! Way up from only $1M a year ago, and the stock traded at $8 a year ago. So I think a dip on Monday is a buying opportunity. Next 2 quarters should be good. Plus any additional contract announcements could send this low floater back to $6+.
We could use an ice breaker! Stock market rocking this week and PESI is doing absolutely nada. I don't understand why more people aren't interested. One of the cheapest stocks on Nasdaq imo.
Yeah blowout quarter!! Congrats! Obviously with that jump in revenues, and their huge gross margins, it was going to be a strong EPS quarter. Someone on the CC just raised a good question though. When you compare the 9 months and annual numbers, the operating expenses in Q4 look kinda funky. SG&A was very low, while R&D was very high. Weird! Anyone able to make sense of this?
It's .015/share per quarter. To start. Maybe they'll bump it up down the road!
A little news today at least. Sounds like things still going pretty well. I echo your earlier statement though. Frustrating to watch DAIO languish while the rest of the market is on fire this week! I'm watching other stocks that don't have nearly the fundamentals of DAIO zoom 10%+ last few days.
