GTx Webcast of Corporate Presentation at the UBS Global Healthcare Conference 2015. The GTx presentation will begin at 4:00 pm EDT. Whether the curious timing of the presentation is a coincidence, purposeful or not important, it will be known tomorrow.
Acquisition of media/mobile/content giant AOL - this week it was announced that AOL was being acquired by Verizon. While there are many facets to the AOL empire, the core growth engine is focused on mobile/media/content/advertising - much like Inuvo. While it is not really an apples to apples comparison and I do not believe anyone would suggest that Inuvo is comparable to AOL, the large premium paid for a company with similar lines of business often leads to investors to look around for other smaller players in the space that might be gobbled up at a nice premium. Given the valuation of Inuvo and its profitable and rapidly growing mobile advertising business, it would not be surprising to see one of the larger players in the space make a run at Inuvo. Given CEO Howe's recent comments, it appears that any discussions would likely require such talks to start with prices in the $4 per share range.
The longtime Chief Executive Officer, President and Director Michael M. Morrissey, Ph.D of Exelixis, Inc. will face the Shorts, Bashers & Negs Gang alone as the hopeful Longs who are situated behind closed doors monitoring their laptops await his presentation that is scheduled today for 12:00 p.m. PDT.
Greetings and congratulations to all of us company stock picking investment geniuses. I am elated by your handshakes, hugs, beer mug raising, high fives, fist pumps, break dancing and other celebratory gyrations. Regarding the earnings report, did I mention, "Bling-Bling, Ka-Ching &Schwing!"? I estimated that $0.03 was a blowout tops for earnings and I am correct in that assumption. I have my finger on the pulse of the advertising market with regard to running the flag up the pole and the potential for providers to benefit more hugely than ever in past history. I see large companies that are in fierce competition and those that have unlimited money to spend for services that are in search of better positioning themselves for profitability from the advertising dollar. Inuvo, Inc. is prepared to come to their rescue with the resources and ideas that the company has in their arsenal. I believe that this is the resurgence of a considerable expansion for the company and in my estimation the company stock is a long term hold. As profits continue to elevate, so will the stock price, which could be considerable.
Twitter Inc. has struck a deal with Google Inc. to make its 140-character updates more searchable online.
In the first half of this year, tweets will start to be visible in Google’s search results as soon as they’re posted, thanks to a deal giving the Web company access to Twitter’s firehose, the stream of data generated by the microblogging service’s 284 million users, people with knowledge of the matter said Wednesday. Google previously had to crawl Twitter’s site for the information, which will now be visible automatically.
The agreement underscores the progress that Twitter Chief Executive Officer #$%$ Costolo is making in getting tweets seen by more non-users and generating more advertising revenue from a larger audience. Twitter, which also provides data to Microsoft Corp.’s Bing search service and Yahoo! Inc., is aiming to draw more people to its site as user growth slows. Twitter this week announced deals to show advertising in Flipboard Inc.’s mobile application and with Yahoo Japan Corp
Twitter shares rose 1.3 percent to $41.26 at the close in New York. The stock has advanced 15 percent this year. Google rose less than 1 percent to $529.83.
Engineers from Twitter and Google are already working on the arrangement, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the deal isn’t public. The two companies had a similar deal from 2009 to 2011. Ali Rowghani, Twitter’s former chief operating officer, had been against renewing the agreement to keep more control over Twitter’s content and it lapsed, the people said.
