    Up to 135,000 shares

    Since current price is at low $.60s. So why added now? How to you judge the risk ( mstx and market in general)?

    Don't get me wrong, I like this stock and hold some positions. Just wondering when and how to load up.
    Accumulate at current price? Wait for th pull back ( market maybe t the peak?) or at higher price when trend is clearly up? If history repeat itself one more time, next run could go to $

    WYY - sure is hard to understand...

    Won't it be nice you can keep trading at this under valued price? Almost risk free.
    Still curious about 2.6 million short shares, thy disappeared within 10 trading days " unnoticed".
    Also what happened two days ago in th morning? stock up to $1.7 with big volume but closed low.

    So far this is a boring stock for long term investors, even trade is not easy, yesterday I had order at ask price ( $1.53) and only partially been filled. Last try to shake the tree?

    Short Interest

    Simply check Barron site , Aug 1st short position 3million, today about
    0.6 million. So in about 10 trading days 2.5 million shares covered
    ( bought). With average trading volume about 200K, 2.5 million shares
    Covered. Not consider real buyer, there is basically no price movement.
    Did I miss anything?

  • Couple of reasons
    1. Based on revenue and earning, current price is good price. Under/ fair value . Buy/ hold
    2. Based on revenue growth from core business, fair value should be around 20 million. Now only 14 million. BUY!
    3. potential $200+ million deal and additional $300-400 million could follow. Great risk/reward ratio.
    BUY !BUY !BUY!

    4. previously stock traded around $.04 because of the pending news. ( almost 100% higher than current price), the chance it will be back to $.04 right before the news or in another word within 6-8 weeks is very high.

    Bottom-line, buy AMMX now around $0.02 and sell $0.03-0.04 in 6-8 weeks. That is 50-100% profits in one or two months.

    Opportunity knocking the door, open the door!

    One observation, one theory

    Yeah, you are right. WYY up almost 10%! So excited. Can't think anything better to do rather than enjoying it . Why you are here? Something bothers you to enjoy the football season?


  • Observation; WYY goes high with big volume /low with small volume. Same pattern from last year ( PPS from $0.30s-$1.5).

    someone with power need enough shares before to let stock go high. To achiev this , either first push stock down or consolidate ( up and down so-called shaking the tree) period of time )The lower the price or the longer the consolidation, the higher the price will go.

    Tuning the engine;
    "I don't want to jinx us because things are going well for us right now. We're making a lot of good decisions. If things continue, right now we're tuning the engine. Think of it that way, we're tuning the engine on wide point and when all the cylinders really come into focus and really are running on all eights, it's going to be a beautiful thing."

    Regarding about remaining shelf ,
    "If and when we pulled down the $12.5 million left on the shelf, it will be because of that guiding principle that we have something that we can make money as shareholders for collectively that will be a good news event, not a bad news event. To date, historically we've never raised money ever, just to augment either our livings, our salaries or our expenses, but to invest in this company and make a return for all investors one and all the like."

    From cc trancript , more than three OEMs

    "Well obviously that would depend on the OEM and as we’ve indicated we’re very actively engaged with three at least. We need to be a little cautious about being any more specific than that but it would be fairly obvious to say that at least one of those is a very strong market leader and that when we’re talking about in terms of market opportunity, if in fact we become an embedded part of their security solution, we’re taking minimally some pretty massive opportunity in terms of devices that would be sold to not only government agencies and employees but all related individuals either in an enterprise or anywhere else that have access issues associated with their intellectual property and/or their own personal security on those smartphones or tablets."

    net profit, gross profit and operation profit

    by waveno1 Aug 14, 2014 9:32 PM
    waveno1 waveno1 Aug 14, 2014 9:42 PM Flag

    Couple of thoughts;
    If you buy stock is buy the future, based on today's updated information and recently stock performance, any reason not to buy?

    Company future is bright, so-called analyst called stock to further slump, there are more than three million short shares need to be covered, some new IDs (with knowledge to call exactly net loss 0.66 million one day before earning report) showed up to bash the stock...

  • Search " understanding the profit metrics.."
    The bottom line
    While it’s tempting to look at the bottom line of an income statement to size up a company, investors should be mindful of this figure’s shortcomings. Because gross profit and operating profit focus on the company’s core activities, these numbers are often the best barometer for determining an organization's future course.

    This year basically

    Good point. Forgot the dilution. So current price equal to $1.65-1.7 ( before dilution )?

    Too bad Zacks power is too week. I have several buy orders try to catch golden knife, none filled.

    July 15 short position no change. Let's wait for next report number. Trading pattern like today ( net money flow + 60K), no stock movement . To "disappear" three million short shares, will push PPS significantly higher .

  • WYY stock price zero change. After 8 1/2 months, $1.5 to $1.5
    WYY as company, so many good things; locked hundred million deals, contracts, award, national, international, new partners
    All above reflect to market capital = ZERO

    And so-called analyst warning investors stock price could further go down and it is confirmed by it's rank # 4 ( sell) rating.

    who should be worry; investors or someone with 3 million short position?

  • waveno1 waveno1 Aug 12, 2014 3:37 PM Flag

    when WYY stock up, Zacks claimed overbought and price " falls back to earth" simply based on RSI 71.6!!!!!!
    Every mins How many stocks with RSI 72?
    Now WYY stock faced pressure so it is not over sold but will slump further beasue ZACKs rank is #4 sell which confirm it!!!

    Wait , last time rank #5 ( strong sell) actually WYY is overbought and keeps going higher.

    What a mess!

    WAVX just reported earning and CEO talked about WAVX/WYY
    "We have a partnership with them that would allow them to use our TPM management software to provision those certificates on the TPM chips within government computers. I think it's a very - it's a win-win match for both WidePoint and for Wave. And we certainly are driving very hard to increase the revenues - increase the sales that we're winning together."
    last sentence "sales that we are winning ..."

    So far so good. Couple of days already 7-8 percent potential profits. Normally I will start to take the profits from here but not this time.
    Market down, WYY up three days in a row?
    This is just warm up, could be the beginning of the big wave .
    50 MA is around $1.61, next MACD golden across, maybe 52 week new high. Enough consolidation, should be fun time
