NEW YORK (AP) — Former presidential candidate and Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney is rejoining Marriott International's board of directors..... Wold like to see Mitt and other board members investing in TKOI.
TKOI's best shot is still Mariott. Mariott's over 110,000 guest rooms in close to 4000 properties world-wide can keep TKOI busy for years. Ramney and his board of directors at Mariott can easily buy TKOI out, (and 10 more times) with their spare change. They can even make it part of Mariott (as a subdivision?) if they want to. Their energy money saved by TKOI's technology could easily be another 10 times more in the years to come. TKOI needs to take care Mariott first and the most. Other small and one time sales are just distractions.
Since the Q1 just ended on April 1st, the insider buy might be an indication of better Q1 result.. Not sure why it takes them so long to put out the quarterly result, last year was released in May 22, 7! weeks after the quarter ended.
PESF and PCEP to TKOI is as patients and medicare to a doctor.
doctor will do well if he/she is eligible for receiving medicare payment for patients.
If they can make $3 mil revenue of the Q1 (traditional slower quarter), that would be good enough to support $0.20-$0.21 range. If it is close to $4 millions, I would consider that's a "knock out" and that could change things in a big way.
Just a speculation.... as a general practice, new businesses/customers often get first year free tech support and warranty and also sometimes free upgrade protection. This might be the case with TKOI. 2013'Q1 new customers will start to pay fees in 2014Q1. This past quarter's drop in recurring fees might be a sign of last year's slow Q1 result.
3.1 millions is a nice number.... One thing I noticed is that their recurring revenue (about 1/3 of the total revenue, about $1 million per Q) decreased. I always thought that new businesses should bring in new recurring fees....not sure why.
