    Worth reading the Jan 9 8-K where they state the lawsuit discussed is not a material event and this statement presumably will be accurate or management will be out.

    I don't understand why people react so badly for the earnings report. I don't see it was not bad. Can anyone help me what I don't see but others see?

    Is anyone besides me tuning in to the call this evening? This is one of my most productive holdings, yet this board is inactive.

    Well orchestrated short attack. Report issued by "Copperfield" disparaging many facets of the company. Today's the big day really trying to get it well below the 200 dma.

    I would like to ask if anyone is in agreement that it is in the best interest of the shareholder to collect a dividend from the company they have put hard earned money into? This too in the long term serves the company best by showing that it is indeed very much interested in the shareholder. Yes growth is great but a known factor such as a dividend is very satisfying too.

    $TCX Investor Relations on Net Neutrality:

    "Tucows is deeply concerned about the future of net neutrality from a societal perspective, however, not deeply concerned about how it will affect Tucows' business. In the end, the Company is building superior networks and delivering superior service. There is nothing incumbents can do (with or without neutrality) to compensate for conventional copper networks versus fiber. The Company also thinks that its commitment to maintain net neutrality as a network operator could prove to be a point of difference with towns that care about this issue -- so, a potentially positive impact from that perspective."

    on Ting TV :

    The Company is working on a Ting TV offering...expects to be live sometime in 2018. Will be a traditional paid television package, comparable to a basic Comcast or Charter package. The idea is simply to help convert folks that want Ting's superior Internet service but are not ready to leave their cable package behind. Ting has everything it needs in terms of equipment, hardware and software with its current towns and its existing operations and relationships to launch this service...available wherever (and only where) Ting Internet is available...no plans for Ting exclusive content...Ting is launching TV and exploring TV usability solutions simply to help us convert customers to the superior fiber Internet service...expects to take very little margin on any TV product and shareholders should think of it as a feature to help get to the targeted 50% adoption of Internet in any market in five years."

    I would add that in 2017 the acquisition of ENOM had a negative non cash impact on earnings due to acquisition goodwill/amortization accounting rules. Tucows CEO described the impact in an online investor video on the Tucows Corp. website. This negative impact on reported earnings washed out quarter by quarter in 2017 and will not be a factor in 2018. It was urgent for shorts to cover their positions before the positive impact on 2018 earnings are reported to avoid a short squeeze. I noticed some of the negative propaganda dribbling out here and there online months before it was consolidated into that silly report.

    Well...that was interesting.
    Ting up 2% on having dodged the bullet of having Burlington, VT as a business partner. I have followed the council meetings from the beginning of Tings bid and can say that having any dealings with the city of Burlington would most likely be a sh*tshow for Tucows in the end.

    The councilors did not vote in the best interest of their constituents, as Ting and KBTL would have clear winners if that was the case. This whole process smacked of corruption. Shurz came in LONG after the deadline with a confusing, last minute, verbal LOI that, on top of being highly predatory and vague regarding the cities actual role in BT, was about as far from local as you could get. Shurz/ZRF is grooming BT to be sold within 5 years, and the only ones that will profit will be Citibank and Schurz/ZRF.

    If the council truly wanted to keep BT local, Ting would have been the front runner. They struck the perfect balance between having a financially stable, established, experienced operator, while still allowing BT to be "hyper local." Ting was willing to fully immerse themselves in Burlington Culture and had a lot to bring to the table.

    With the exception of the 4 councilors who abstained from the final vote, Burlington Council is fully paid for by Shurz.

    There will be other fiber opportunities for Ting, and while this will have been a nice accrretive acquisition, it was not necessary by any means for Tucows continued growth.

    For q1 and q2 2018, revenue growth will slow down, but you have to remember that Tucows had a couple immediately accretive acquisitions to add to the numbers. We do still have some unrealized Enom revenue that can't be added to the books until subscriptions are renewed. Expect EPS to ~ double in Q1 and Q2 2018.

    Still long and adding to Ting position.
    Disclaimer: I live in Westminster, MD. Ting is pretty awesome.

    I read the report issued by the "short attack" scammers and it reads like the front page of a supermarket tabloid or maybe TMZ tv. They are using a standard formula report with all the typical accusations. It's really just a cut and paste company bashing report "just fill in the company name." Short interest in TCX has been building little by little over the past year as the stock price has risen. The shorts are underwater in TCX and this is a desperate and organized attempt to cut losses using price manipulation tactics like short down ladder and counterfeiting of shares. In 2008, the SEC banned what it called "abusive naked short selling in the United States, as well as some other jurisdictions, as a method of driving down share prices but unfortunately the SEC is often ineffective in stopping price manipulation and illegal trading schemes. The bottom line is that Tucows businesses while not exciting are stable, growing and are cash generators. I may do a point by point rebuttal of the Copperfield report in another post.

    Nobody sell please, lets squeeze mr shortie . With 25% short that short trader is going to pay through the nose. We might see 65 soon. 25% is 2,500,000 shares are short. With good financial report for Q1 his only choice is to cover! Nobody sell to him!

    Why. TX is a subscription business. Revenue is predictable, very little volitility. Listen to the conference call right now.

    Hidden Gem - Deferred Revenue

    Open up the financials and look at Deferred Revenue and Long Term Deferred Revenue

    TCX has 1/2 its annual revenue already in the bag. Its simply waiting to be journaled over to the income statement. The other 12 of revenue needs to come from renewals and new customer signings.

    Subscription revenue Rocks ------easy for us to predict!
