On Oct.3 , almost a year ago the PPS was $9.41, LF closed 9 cents higher yesterday $9.50 . Last year Q3 and Q4 were 0.60 each, this year the estimates are little more than half that. The funds that "short" LF control the PPS in ways we can't, know what their doing. The only way to beat them is to flood them with "buys" due to insider trades or some overwhelming great news or earnings, then the "shorts" lose control and start buying using all their efforts to drive the PPS up so they can "short" again at the top.
That's the bad news, the good news is LF tablets ARE moving up in the Amazon sales rankings and the inventory is running out with some retailers in the short term. I still think LF will have their day in the sun and is a very low risk stock and when that happens I wouldn't want to be on the outside looking in. At $9.50 we are in a good place for a bounce. Good Luck!
Government Shutdown would be GREAT ! Cut the government in half then cut the salary of the remaining half untill it equals the private sector along with benefits and pensions. Get the standard of living in Washington down to the what the rest of the nation is down too. Make Congress and the Whitehouse live like the rest of us live. obama said an increase in the debt ceiling does not mean an increase in debt, then why does he need an increase for ? How about CUTTING the debt ceiling like the rest of us.
Sorry, I just needed to vent . Everybody back to work, if you have a part-time job to go back to.
President and Chief Financial Officer, Charlie Schafer, will present at Craig-Hallum’s 4th Annual Alpha Select Conference on September 26, 2013 in New York City.
I think we will see some renewed interest due to the Conference on Thurs. Rvlt is overdue for a bounce.
Bottom line we will get some idea of where this company is going and how they plan to get there !
In just a month the PPS went up 33%, over 3 bucks on a stock that is estimated to make only 2 cents and could easy show a "loss". Zacks only rates it as a hold #3 and it's due for some profit taking. I'am long and will buy more but I don't chase, it will come back down if only for a short term, if not, I'll just hold what I got.
Yes, the lawsuit plays a factor it didn't play much of a factor on Friday due to options.
I'll bet you watch a lot of Fox News
And I bet you back obama who has FAILED at every turn. Just can't handle the TRUTH can you. I bet you love msn.
They are talking about low end printers. This is where you will find Neon's initial applications, which is better than the high end products that you have worked with based upon the volume of sales.
Now that I am retired from Xerox and Kodak I do own a repair service that gets alot of low end, home office printers, copier, scanners, and fax units. If there is a buying season, I can tell you it's between Xmas and the IRS deadline to file April 15 . Otherwise people buy new units when the old ones break all year round. A min. service call is over $150 just for labor, parts are extra, so most of the time they are not worth fixing and have something else break due to age.
Van, I would like to see them available for December as well, but do you believe that printers and copiers are holiday items? I think of them more as year round purchases, not seasonal.
Where did you find the information on copiers and printers ? I worked for both Xerox and Kodak for over 47 years starting with the First Xerox copiers ever made 813, 660, 914 which were leased out only. The cost per unit was up to $150,000 but the price as come down for a cheap commercial unit starting at around $6,000 today . Are you talking about those copiers and printers or the junk they sell at Office depot, or Staples, those are Toys and made for home use only.
The buying season starts in the Fall and ends after Spring. Summer time everybody is doing vacations including the purchasing department so things slow down until Fall starts.
I quest you didn't get the news. Wait for the pullback. Give it a couple of days untill the volume is back to normal.
After the dust settles.
Investors accused the Chicago-based company of securities fraud and claimed it used impermissible refund accounting to boost revenues in a prospectus in connection with its IPO and in later U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filings, according to a revised complaint filed last year.
“The court finds that these allegations present plausible violations,” of federal securities law, Norgle said in his Sept. 18 ruling.
Groupon opened at $28 in Nasdaq stock exchange trading on Nov. 4, 2011.
The company reported a “material weakness” in its financial controls on March 30, 2012, and said its first reported quarterly sales as a publicly traded company were lower than previously stated because of higher refunds to merchants, reducing revenue in the quarter ended Dec. 31, 2011, by $14.3 million to $492.2 milli
Good Luck Today !
There is no reason to believe your source is credible unless you know they have some type of inside information so telling us it's selling like hotcakes is pure speculation.
It's really not that big of a deal, just a passing comment on a MB for entertainment purposes only, not a professional paper. Just take it with a grain of salt, means nothing or very little.
4 out of 5 where? How does this person know it's selling like hotcakes?
Not 4 out of 5 at Amazon, it's 4 1/2 out of 5 at Amazon "electronics for kids"! How does he know it's selling like hotcakes? I don't know but if I'am going to spend the money I ask questions so I'am sure the kids are asking for it. On the other hand "selling like "hotcakes" could be bad. I hate Hotcakes"! It was just a comment from someone who DOESN'T hold LF stock, he's only worried about the display made by NEON.
From somebody that told me he doesn't own LF stock!
The kids are loving the LeapPad Ultra. It's selling like hot cakes and it's a 4 out of 5 star device.. That fact
bodes well for the Christmas season and Neonode...
Low volume for just about everybody as they wait for the amount of Fed tapering and the all important GUIDANCE going forward. Charles Payne, who is a very well educated in investing. said we might have a market sell-off this afternoon but don't be fooled it will be short lived. I'am thinking of building up some dry powder to buy on the selloff cause I think he is right.
What do you guys think?
If Kmart list their top 15 toys in the order of estimated sales, ULTRA comes in 6th place. I would think LP2 would outsale the Ultra.
Hey superbowl, Looks like your name will be safe for another year by the way the Steelers look...bummer.
I like to look at the bright side, at least the mailman won't be stealing my Sports Illustrated like in the 70's when they won 4 S.B.'s in 6 years! (you think he would just read it then pass it on).
Just goes to show you you're either on the way up or the way down no matter how great you use to be, just ask Kodak and Apple. I think Neon is going to surprise alot of people because of the field they are in. They are on the way up for sure and I really like the fact that they only took what they needed.
I'am not a fan of "stock offerings" which puts the raising of capital on the back of the shareholders instead of a loan which would hurt the "numbers" for mgmt. and keep them on the hook. Some of the shares sold @ 6.60 could be flipped for a fast profit but alot of the shareholders didn't buy the stock to see it go down. It could have been worst. The offering was very small and it seem like the company was only going after the money they needed to process the new orders, and that's a good sign. As for the insider sellers, stock options are part of their salary and if someone else does the selling for them, it clears them of insider selling issues due to the timing of linking it with the offering. Things should settle down soon an we will have a better idea of where we are at and where we are going.

"vinny", I don't see you on the LeapFrog M.B. Do you hold that stock ?
