    Approaching 1 Million shares traded

    well whoever ATRN hired to act as a liason to acquire fiancing may have just posed or forced the issue about selling the whole co., as oppossed to selling bits and pieces of it..It wouldnt surprise me as the underwriting on a takeout deal would supposedly garner more broker profit than a fraction takeout deal....in short, maybe the broker financier ATRN hired started the takeout ball rolling and got some interest..of course if that speculation proves true, then this stock is definetly trading dirty

    rb, not to sound ignorant but what do u mean IA? Also, I did a quick google search re Benzinga and keyed in Benzinga rumours takeover. It seems this website has alot of hits for takeover rumours but confirming whether any of the initial rumours had any validity later on proved that the rumou was false. It seems as if this rumour is no different. I agree with the prior poster.this will fall back in time. There is nothing in the balnace sheet or the income or the cash flow statement or in plain old arithmetic to hold up this price..nothing all we have heard is HOPE AND CHANGE..THta will always prove fleeting it has absolutely no substance whatsoever. I want this co. to go to the moon, but I am a realist not a dreamer. I drank the kool aid too and am down, but lets be brutally honest....there is nothing here except hope and change and we all know in 1999 what happened to that dream

    that is aboslute nonsense. Any material information that would affect the decision of a prospective investor in any publicly traded company must be disclosed in an 8K or other relevant SEC filing. Management would never "let the cat out of the bag" by advertising being a quasi Facebook partner as your interpretation of their website would seem to imply. The mere mention of social networking in no way portneds a tie up with Facebook. You should know as a VTRO follower that VTRO has a partnership with google..so what's the point..a partnership is far far different than a takeover.....Again I want this to go to the moon but letes be real here This is 2011, not 1999

    thats not an announcement. What it is is 2 words social networking..to hook some unsusspecting person or company into advertising with ATRN..All it is is sales talk...sales talk is everywhere...also, any announcemnet must be done via the proper channels..via an 8-K....Do u really thing that if there was a tie up in the works, that management would circumvent the SEC disclosure rules by risking the dissemination of info that could be interpreted to portend a tie up or a merger...No way..their counsel would absoutely forbid such a leak....Youre dreaming sir..we will see low 2s very soon..and no. I am long and strong..I want this co. to go up on Reality not smoke, mirrors hope and change

    I opened that link u posted And upon further inspection, you are correct..the picture of the page clearly shpws the word facebook..now..questions

    1. when was their website updated to show that picture with facebook on it..it could have been there for along time
    2. Assuming there is a deal with facebook, whcih now looks much more obvious...then it may just be the same thing as a VTRO-Google partnership..a revenue sharing arrangment...that is the most plausible reality given several things..the VTRO ad agency was very very similar to ATRN's As u know, VTRO eventually hooked with google, and they routed all their searches to GOOGlE, and the two would share revenue..That could be what is going on here...but its not a game changer in the short term..no money changes hands for ownership of ATRN..and as I remember the goog partnership did help out VTRO but VTRO was still in sink or swim mode for a year or two and almost sank before the goog partnership proved to be fruitful

    I just listened to the conference call, and Musci specifically says that there will be significant announcements with respect to the Ad agency, Atrinsic division. Now, this facebook development looks the most likely "development" that was implied in the CC. But again, it may just be a revenue sharing partnership....VTRO had a goog partnership as well, and the stock during that time still traded to likely default levels

    I am not a long, and in fact never even been a short on this stock or for that matter on any co. I tried to buy calls one time and lost...My brain doesnt work that way. I only look for stocks to rise not fall.. Its just the way I think...I am a value investor of the Benjamin Graham variety..I drank the kool aid on this one..shouldnt have in fact it had none of the Ben Graham key metrics but I fell for the hope and change and so far I am down by 30 percent.. I still think we have a 5050 chance,, what anyone says on this board doesnt affect the pps, contrary to alot of folks,,stocks rise and fall on mainly the p and l statement, the balance sheet and the cash flow sheet....nothing there mathematically supports the pps rise of ATRN, but I still feel that we have a 50/50 chance of going up..Noone wiLL ever consume music like before,,,reccord stores will be dinasours very very soon..just like pay telephones.....thats why I wont sell the shares..I will either sink or swim

    correction..I AM A LONG

  • The first would most likely be a facebook-ATRN partnership..Forget a buyout folks...so assuming I am correct about a partnership, what would the other logical development be. And remember Musci said the 2 developments would relate to the Atrinsic division, and not the Kazaaa division

    Anyone wanna take a stab at it?

    well if you think about it logically..if Musci said there would be 2 significant developments with the Atrinsic division, then it couldnt be a buyout, b/c thats so final that there would only be 1 announcement...u could never have 2 announcemnets if the division was to be sold..that just doesnt make sense..so yes a major client win would be plausible

    what you say doesnt make any sense. If Gilliam is hired by management as a paid pumper..I guess you would surmise that Gilliam is pumping the stock, and after it rises, ATRN management and Gillam both heavily short the company...???and make a profit off the dupes on this board??

  • That social media ATRN page not only showcases facebook, but also mentions twitter and myspace..look down bottom left had side..Highly doubtful that partnership agreements will be inked by all 3..looks like a false alarm..we will wait for the Gillaim pump tommorrow

    would everyone cut the racist crap out everyone and his mother knows that Blacks are the first to get hired and the last to get fired...blacks get accepted to prestigious universities despite the fact that alot of whites are passed over who are eminently more qualified..and the irony is Blacks still whine and complain geez let me start a white history month, cut the crap Blacks..u guys have its so easy

    well if Sean Parker's stake in spotify was 15 million at 5% of the co., then he thuinks that the Spotify selling at 300 million would be a good deal...sounds interesting

  • vertrosaht vertrosaht Apr 19, 2011 9:49 AM Flag

    well then if Sean Parker took a 5% stake in Kazaa, he could do it without moving the stock very much, and not paying squat..a 5% stake even at the newly issued share count after the BD deal closes would be 304 thousand shares.....he might have taken his stake in just 2 hours yesterday morning....seems plausible thats why the pps is falling again

  • vertrosaht vertrosaht Apr 19, 2011 11:21 AM Flag

    rb dont confuse what Musci said..The "significant" development will NOT RELATE to Kazaa, but to AI

  • I told everyone here yesterday that hope and change will only support the pps in the very short term. The only thing that will support the pps are the income, balance and cash flow statements. Those 3 staements look ABSOLUTELY HORRENDUS for ATRN. Hope and Change will always take a backseat to REALITY. We will see low 2s very soon, and we are on our way to 1.50 in a month or two
