    Yep, more often than not (much more often) the gaps do get filled. Weird but probably some deep psychological basis for that sort of thing. I used to think charts and moving avg crossings and gaps filling and all that sort of stuff was/were/are self-fulfilling prophecies but my current belief is that they are merely reflections of psychological/mass-emotions of investors. I said all that very badly (poorly?) but you get the drift.

    The time to whine will be on Monday or Tuesday when the Form 4s are filed.....I would guess.

    Right now, you couldn't buy ANY shares with a bid of 52 cents even if you wanted to. The ASK is .5208. Someone simply gave up and moved on.

  • uptabdowntab uptabdowntab Nov 13, 2014 3:36 PM Flag

    I'd have to say neither one. Someone simply decided to sell about 270,000 far. Actually pretty impressive how the stock is hanging in there.

    Earnings tpday or tomorrow?

    Since Nov 15 falls on a Saturday, maybe they have until the end of Monday? SEC requires release 45 days after end of quarter and 90 days after end of fiscal year. Typically VTSI waits until near the very end of the time limit. I don't have a problem with that as long as they are consistent.

    Since they almost always announce before the open, I fully expect a PR tomorrow morning. Fun days, months, and years ahead! Cheers.

    CYBR beat,

    Since nothing else to talk about until post-close today....

    CYBER founded in 1999, Identiv in 1990.

    Currently Cyber does have better earnings, that was not always the case if you dig back a number of years.

    The BIG BIG problem for CYBR and its shareholders is that Cyber is based in Israel. That is a huge risk no matter how you slice it. Identiv is based in USA.

    I will make a friendly wager with you.....With Noon today as the starting point, I will bet you that INVE outperforms CYBR over the next 1 year....and by a large margin. I believe CYBR gets cut in half and INVE triples.

    Not really. If you read the CYBR report, listen to their cc, and understand their forward guidance it is more like comparing a 10 oz filet mignon to an 8 oz filet mignon. Little difference.

    Amazing...CYBR has a $1.1 Billion market cap with trailing sales of $75 Million. That's a B and a M, respectively.

    They could be knowledgeable-enough and personable-enough to explain the company strategy, to discuss competition, to talk about upcoming events.

  • uptabdowntab uptabdowntab Nov 12, 2014 12:58 PM Flag

    My frustration with them is that the couple times I've talked to them, they are very defensive and seem to have large chips on their shoulders. Weird if you ask me. Then I think, What have they done for the company? Certainly haven't helped create shareholder value, certainly haven't gotten any decent analyst coverage, super clever timely informative PRs? I don't think so. Sure, Mad Catz has gone to a few conferences but any company that makes a phone call, asks, and agrees to pay the fee can do that.

  • Fire your IR firm. In my opinion, those guys are incompetent. They are not capable of having a reasonable conversation with a shareholder. They have managed to scrap up ONE whole analyst who covers the company. Save your money and simply assign the IR task to an in-house attorney or the CFO or the head of HR or someone like that. Many small companies do it that way and save a ton of money and have far better rapport with the investing community and owners. These guys have done nothing for you.

    clover, you are a moron. "nothing leftover for shareholders" really are stupid. The only time a company pays shareholders is when they pay dividends. MCZ and a million other companies never have and never will and never should. Keep posting, in addition to moron & stupid, you are funny.

    MCZ Short Interest is UP 22%

    The number of shorted shares is 67,000. In this case, 67000 = 0.

  • uptabdowntab by uptabdowntab Nov 12, 2014 9:16 AM Flag

    TA has been good to me in the past, but only when buying when it takes a deep dump. I got lucky on my last sell in the 12ish range and have not re-entered though continue to watch closely. In an effort to take advantage of TA, I purchased HPT in the mid-20s mainly due to the dividend and exposure to real estate and the FACT they are on the sweet side of the TA/HPT relationship.

    My main reason for this post is to mention VTSI. Do your own research, read the last few months of headlines/prs. Look at the relentless year over year over year over year revenue and earnings gains. Their stellar debt free, cash rich audited balance sheet, etc. I mention it now because I firmly believe it is on the verge of a 50% pop to be followed by a strong steady move higher. Again, look for yourself. My belief is it is worth 35 cents TODAY, yet it trades for 13 cents. It is only a penny stock because there are 158mil outstanding shares.

    Yes, I have mentioned this on a couple different message boards (MCZ, HTCH) over the last few months. I've done this because those stocks and posters there have been kind, and I feel the same toward some here.

    Good luck all.

    OT: VTSI

    by uptabdowntab Nov 11, 2014 4:52 PM
    uptabdowntab uptabdowntab Nov 11, 2014 9:20 PM Flag

    Your points are all good ones and dead on correct. Their Q3 numbers are only likely to be "decent/ok". The big 11mil in order intake curing Q3 will be booked as revenue when those systems ship, a tiny number in Q3, more in Q4, likely the most in Q1, etc. The Q3 being reported late this week is dependent on the intake in Q1 and Q2 and we don't know much about those numbers.

    I say there is a "reasonable chance" for a 50% pop because of three reasons:

    1. The chart is a beautiful thing right now, it traded up to about 15 and then has been consolidating a bit and now sits at 13. The chart "looks" like it should step up to 20 any day now and I see the report as a possible catalyst.

    2. It is possible/likely that the report will get some new investors involved. It seems like vey few shares are available for purchase sub-15.

    3. By late this week, we will be half way through Q4 and there seems to be a steady stream of incoming orders as evidenced by the various newspaper articles, municipal minutes, and government procurement website updates showing contract wins.

    By "reasonable chance" I mean a little better than 50/50 chance. At current 13 cents, market cap is 20.5million and enterprise value is about 19million. PS for upcoming FY15 is likely about 1 and PE is likely about 6 or 7.

    Make it 4 reasons.....any mention of "uplisting VTSI" to OTC in the earnings release will ensure a fast and furious rise.

  • uptabdowntab by uptabdowntab Nov 11, 2014 4:52 PM Flag

    There is a reasonable chance that VTSI will be 50% higher one week from today. They will release Q3 earnings on either Thursday or Friday this week. Results should be good and I would guess the outlook even better. Cheers.

  • have very tiny 'nads and a limp unit. They bash like crazy today and then at days end they sell 19,000 shares at the market in an effort to drop the stock. That's right, 19,0000! Not 1.9mil, not190,000, but 19,000. Absolutely nothing. These guys should be ashamed of themselves, they are the laughing stocks....Ha Ha Ha I say to you.

    Hhhhhmmmmm, let's see. HEAR has a ton of growing debt, declining sales, worsening "profit" margins, a narrow niche product line, and a Price/Sales valuation of 1.2. MCZ is approaching debt-free, has growing sales, improving profit margins, several broad product lines, and a PS of 0.4.

    Not only should HEAR be downgraded, but MCZ should be upgraded. Cheers chickenship.
