I was more worried about the most recent changes in "Operation Cash Flow", not the average. It was a positive number just few weeks ago when I checked, as you have pointed out, they had +$200K positive cash flow at the end of last qtr. Just weeks later, it became -$800k negative cash flow. That tells me they "Burned" $1m in a month, if the number can be trusted. TTM should be a rolling 12 month number, updated monthly. Yahoo could be wrong.
Most of us on this board are using it as a way to get information and opinions, not so much a way to manipulate stock price to make some profit from others. We all make our money in our own way by short or long and they are all legit. There is no need to attack each other because one's pumping or bashing view. Can we all just get along?
What I see is that TKOI cash burning rate is about $800k-$1m /month with $1m cash left in their bank account, according to Yahoo Finance. They will need to make some quick money, or won't be able to meet the payroll in few weeks.
I gave 75% chance that Q4 is going to be bad. Energy price is dropping like a rock, combined with traditional slow season and ongoing stock market partial crash. All could lead to some tkoi Q4 orders get postponed or cancelled....We will see $0.12 range soon after another shoe dropped...
Hope TKOI can make $4 millions revenue in 4th Q. But could be less due to energy price drop combined with traditional slow season......
It is a good and bad news to TKOI. While TKOI is still relying on the motion detection technology, others will move onto all these newer technologies. Hope TKOI can capitalize its current technology soon. Every technology has its own limited shelf-live.
I agree that any good technology has its shelf live and implementing it fast is the key, Turning on/off AC via a motion sensor automatically is good but not that complicated that no one can come up with other solutions. TKOI needs quick buyers just like what Nest did for its investors.
These are from CapitalCube....Its formula values TKOI at $0.12. Sometime a computer can think with less emotion and speculation. On the other hand, without speculation, that would take away the funs investing in small caps like TKOI. Let's have some funs.
With respect to peers, relative outperformance over the last year is in contrast to the more recent underperformance. Telkonet, Inc. currently trades at a higher Price/Book ratio (3.92) than its peer median (1.88).

The company's relatively high pre-tax margin suggests tight control on operating costs versus peers.
Compared with the peers chosen, TKOI-US has had faster revenue growth in prior years and a current P/E ratio that suggests faster growth in the future suggesting superior growth expectations.
The company's relatively low level of capital investment and below peer median returns on capital suggest that the company is in maintenance mode.
TKOI-US has the financial and operating capacity to borrow quickly.
Nest "smart" thermostat is not really that smart. It based on a fixed schedule to control room temperature and no real-time interactions. When coming home earlier from work, even standing in front of it, my Nest won't know it and still sits on "Away" setting till 5:00PM. TKOI's motion-detection based thermostat is one step better. It takes in real-time data and use it for controlling room comforts. One step forward would be taking room occupant's body temperatures, no matter there is just one person, or 1000 in a room, using the average number to control room temperature, which will depend on some kind of wearable devices. Amazon's Echo also has some potential with its voice-recognition technology and lower level AI.
You are correct. Mr. Gene Mushrush may be holding some stock options as part of his compensation packages, and he hasn't sold any so far, which might mean something to the rest of us!
It seems to me that Gene Mushrush never bought and sold any shares of TKOI during his 6 years with the company as the controller and then as CFO. He must knew something.
Bought, merged or recapitalized but might be sooner than a year.
According to Yahoo financial, TKOI has about $800k cash left, comparing with over $1m cash earlier in 2015. With their operating cost at $700k/month, the cash can only last them 2-3 payrolls. Their current revenue level is just about enough for them to stay above the water. The new CFO might be bring in new capitals (recapitalization) and issuing new shares in conjunction with their reverse-split, the existing shareholders will own much less of the company at the end.
