less and less of a market for LOCK's useless services. Just google "javelin 2014 identity theft" to see the report. I am sure LOCK won't be telling the market anything about this.

Voters are soundly rejecting Measure P, the effort to eliminate high-intensity oil extraction in Santa Barbara County, according to early unofficial results with 96 of 250 precincts reporting.
The measure is failing with 35,347 "no" votes, or 63.7 percent of the ballots counted.
Supporters have garnered 36.3 percent with 20,158 "yes" votes.
Opponents declared victory as soon as the mail-in ballots were counted.
“Tonight the 'No on P' campaign is greatly humbled by the election results, and we would like to extend our thanks to the citizens of Santa Barbara County," said Jim Byrne, director of the "No on Measure P" campaign.
"The citizens of Santa Barbara County have confirmed their support for this industry as an important part of our community, providing thousands of jobs and tens of millions in tax revenues each year for our schools, fire protection, and other vital public services," Byrne continued.
"With over 18 federal, state and local regulatory bodies overseeing production, Santa Barbara’s onshore oil and gas production operates within regulations that are among the strictest in the world," he said.

Trust Risk intends to pursue AmTrust in the Milan courts for EUR500mn ($629mn) in earnings the broker expects to lose over the 11 remaining years of the agreement
Form 4's filed today
these guys had 3m subs at year end. Barely 10% more now and it is 6 months later. ARPU drifting lower. Rolling out a $29.99 service !! like anybody is going to pay that much for this lousy service... Stock worth $6.00 at best.
one time benefit from selling a new applicator. our dermatology office would not be duped into its merits. This company is worth $50-$100m at best. We have seen this movie before - a fad of all fads.
The gold from C.A. is a freebie
read the 8-k filed on friday after the close of business FTC investigation as well. the clown show continues as insiders dump.
company is investing in new customer leads - historically the ROI has been terrific on this.
margins continue to expland
avg cots to acquire a customer continues to fall
bad debts fell
this is a cash flow machine
It's a bad business all around. The most successful offices I know give outstanding care to patients, with honest advice, and top notch treatment. We don't partipate in these sorts of fads. The long term effects of cell destruction in this manner are unstudied, and scary. I know you are going to think I am crazy, but I actually shorted more of this stock today after a former colleague on the West Coast told me how aggressive these guys have been marketing to his office. They will simply do anything to get people to take these machines and use these consumable applicators. By no stretch of the imagination should this stock be worth more than $8-$9.
It is absurd from the standpoint of running a successful office. The company touts big margins, but in their cult-like zealot fashion, they ignore the costs of training my employees, making them "brand ambassadors", the opportunity cost of my time dealign with other issues, and the high rate of discomfort and pain associated with the procedure. The doctors I know have a machine with dust starting to collect on it. Patients came in and tried it once never to come back again. We suspect that there are lots of paid shills that are getting compensated for touting this machine. There is no substitute for a healthy diet, and I would be skirting a fine ethical line if I were to tell patients that 'freezing off their fat' were an adequate substitute. Cell death is scary business, and I am also skeptical about the long term affects of fiddling with cellular and metabolic biology for the benefit of a nicer tummy at the beach. One must weigh the risks.
Love how they tout standing room only for their demonstration on the conference call. I was outside the room with a bunch of docs laughing at how absurd their new applicator is. Only the most desperate offices are buying this junk in my opinion. I have a short position in this stock. It's worth no more than maybe $50m at best.
no reason at all to use LifeLock when you can use Credit Sesame for free
We love when the press release machine fires up nonsense like today, and are especially pleased when the company does not disclose the doctors they have PAID to stump at the podium. See you back in the single digits. Ask your dermatologist about this product - you will get a different story than the company projects.
Procedure growth slowing. Our dermatologist says these guys are sleaze bags.
Systems at LOCK simply don't work. Alerts don't get sent. Internal,controls are lax. Management seem overwhelmed. Check out the suit filed in AZ by a recently terminated employee. It says it all.
