    Or has Amazon ever considered buying a gaming company? They have products that use apps and right now there is an app company that makes lots of great apps but is falling apart at the seams. They've been releasing new products and it seems every time they release something their price falls and falls hard. The company I’m talking about is GameLoft and their price has halved this year. Part of that is due to the state of the economy in Europe, part of it is due to a delay that happened in the second quarter (one rectified in the third) and part of it is due to the sour nature of analysts who cover their company. Regardless they are trading at bargain basement prices so Amazon could probably pick up the company on the cheap. I believe it would be a very good investment for them as they could sell many of their products in an Amazon app store.

    IMHO, it's related by it's really none of the above. I've been watching both Zagg (10% owner of HzO) and Harris Group (15% owner of HzO) and believe that both are seeing a boost from expectation that Apple might announce a partnership for their new products. I believe that HzO is going to do great regardless of what Apple does yet I'm fairly certain that many are speculating on tomorrow's event... If you don't believe me then try to buy September options and you'll find that folks are requesting a significant premium for something that expires soon. That only happens when the market is watching and waiting on a near term event. Tomorrow's Apple event is certainly the only one that's caught my attention.

    Good luck to all tiny investors!!!

    The market may keep walking on you but your management team is really doing a good job of building for the future and their 15% investment in HzO is just a piece of that.

    He is certainly right on this one... There are lots of related products that should sell well over the holidays

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    If you check today's news you'll find that there is a penny stock that had huge volume as people loaded up over the last several days then released press today that indicated that it is competition for Taser. Our local short is probably part of that pump and dump scheme. The huge volume in the days preceding a press release are one sign of a typical pump and dump. Sometimes they'll add to that by trash talking a competitor's website. I believe that's what we have here so it is probably best to put our resident short on ignore and fight back with facts. The facts include lots and lots of sales over the last year and probably the best combination of cameras and cloud support in the business. Keep sharing details of what you know to be true and eventually the shorts with be squeezed out of this position.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Activision should buy GameLoft and turn their products into another cash generating machine "for Activision".
    GameLoft has many of the same partners, they create games for most of the right platforms but
    they don't the publicity and the marketing to take it to the next level.
    For example, they just release one of the top games in multiple app stores and the
    company's market cap has since lost over 20%.... Go figure
    IMHO, this is the time to strike and buy the company on the cheap.
    If Activision doesn't then someone else probably will.

    The fact that Jack is back says volumes...

    FYI, the fact that board members and execs are buying says a lot too.

    There are zero reasons for them to buy unless they are confident they are going to make money. They already have more than enough shares to become very wealthy should this investment finally pay off, yet they are ready to buy more.

    The writing is on the wall... For those who are short it is time to buy and cover.

    Wednesday may also be telling yet the excitement will really be over who's investing.

    These are some very bright people and of course they are getting one hell of a deal, but their deal is what makes it possible for your shares to have long term value. Without them, the company would cease to exist. With them, the sky is now the limit. Time will tell...

    Anyone else bought some this week?

  • Metabolix... announced that it has entered into an agreement with Jack W. Schuler, Oracle Investment Management, Inc., Birchview Capital, certain members of the Company's Board of Directors and executive management team, and other investors for the sale of an aggregate of $25 million of Company securities.

    There is a very big short in this equity but now that Jack is back and ready to buy more the writing is on the wall. If you have shorts it is time to get out and cover. If you don't have stock now may finally be the time to buy; of course, always dollar cost average into any position.

    Good luck folks!
