    Coats responds to OEM's and dealership complaints by cutting lead sources..and topline, revenue, and share price. He does this every so often as can be noted in his CC's. Coats is too easily intimidated to remain as ABTL CEO.

    The market is zooming higher while this turd is headed lower. More jobs rising incomes and this somehow missed the rally. Somebody should go

    Before ABTL can get any brokerage upgrades, it has to something to merit them. So far, Coats has only given reasons to downgrade ABTL. Fire Coats and get someone in there who knows how this business works.

    What's coming next? Coats blows up the projected 2017 earnings by 40%, so what next? Is he going to reduce them again just because he's trying to please ABTL customers by getting rid of all the questionable leads? ABTL can't serve two masters at the same time, so Coats better get used to it and start looking out for ABTL instead of trying to suck up to the dealerships.

    Sell in the morning, buy near market close. ABTL just can't hold upwards for the whole trading sessions. Let's hope Coats doesn't screw us up anymore than he already has.

    Despite my feelings about how this company's being run, it's definitely undervalued. The "street" just doesn't seem to want to get financially involved in it beyond what it already is, and after Coats' last bombshell, there's a lot investors sitting on the sidelines wondering if ABTL really knows what it's doing. Coats can't just blow off 30% to 40% of their lead generations and expect investors to wait for better times to show up. ABTL should probably be sold, and sold to another company that can show that it knows what it's doing.

    ABTL authorizes share buy-back.....$3 million worth. In case some of y'all haven't seen this before, they did the same thing some years ago. They bought a few here, a few there, and finally after tears went by, they finally finished the order as I recall it. Don't know why they did it except maybe to hand it out for option-stock to employees. REMEMBER; this stock and it's price reflects a reverse, 5 to 1 reverse split. ABTL had to do it to prevent delisting on NASDAQ. The real price of the stock is about "$1.20". Coats keeps digging a bigger and deeper hole for ABTL to get out of. Time to fire Coats and get Lorimer out of retirement. ABTL needs someone who knows what they're doing before ABTL goes below $5 and the institutions have to dump all their ABTL stock on the market.

    Coats is out of gas. Who's going to believe anything he has to say. His dog-and-pony shows didn't do anything before, and after his last CC, fund managers and institutions are only going to laugh at anything he says. Total screw-up.

    Will they kick Coats out? The only justice I've seen so far is that Coats and his philosophy has cost the employees and the BOD a ton of money. They all owned a lot of stock and stock options which are now devalued by millions of dollars. Time to consider selling the company or firing Coats.

    The story that Coats tells time after time is the same one, and it's getting very old and tiresome. Coats always drops lead sources because they aren't up to ABTL standards. With the business ABTL is in, that's the way it goes. ABTL can only stay in business if they sell volume. The dealerships have to accept the fact that at least 4 out of 5 leads are duds. Coats can't guarantee that every lead is going to be a sale, and that's what he's trying to do. Coats is putting ABTL out of business if he's going on the theory that every lead they sell is going to be a vehicle sale. Time that they sell the company and get some realistic management.

    ABTL has just seen the last of the selling. Looks like a potential push higher is in store. Yo you should really check out awe-some*sto-cks, they seem on point with their stocks.

    If we are to go off the RSI then you could argue that a pull back next day or so could occur on ABTL before rallying up. check out awe-som_sto-cks, its a pretty reliable service. of course you have to do your own due diligence, but they generally point you in the right direction.

    ,my girl friends daughter picked up a flooded car in the Seattle area. I inspected the car and simply opened the trunk. So often women are looking for a car that looks Good. I recommended her to return it immediately. She did but the dealer knew he had a dummy so he returned it to the driveway. She returned it again, this time the dealer got the message. SO BEWARE OF FLOODED CARS ALL OVER AMERICA

    Autonation CEO on TV states about half million cars lost due to hurricane Harvey. Dealers will be looking for leads in new and used car market. Let's hope ABTL is back up and running.

    ABTL bombed themselves with their own ineptitude and announced it loud and clear in their last CC. I don't see this stock doing anything until they fix their internet problem and get their revenue, profit margin, and bottom line back up. There might be some rebound, but basically, they screwed up big time and don't have much, if any, credibility left.
