    I've had this on my watchlist for some time now and am finally considering starting a position under $60 per share, where the stock sits following earnings. I think the market may be entering a period of higher volatility and a company like VSAT will likely fluctuate much more than the market overall. Will likely dollar cost average into the position, but would appreciate thoughts either way.

    The last time VSAT did something like this it blew up. Do you guys find it difficult to know when to buy or sell something? I prefer to get my stocks from AWE-some.Stock.s.

    I was wondering when the short story writers/investors would target the company. They are in highly technical businesses that they can warp and misconstrue fairly easily for the average investor who doesn't happen to have their Ph.D. in signal processing or the like. To read the full 56 page story go to http://kerr.co/vsat, The company of course makes their money shorting the companies who they are writing about, so take it with a grain of salt. What little I read and since I am at work do not have time to analyze, it looks like a typical hack job buried with a lot of "facts" that could easily be disputed. Unfortunately the stock is being negatively impacted by the report. I am not familiar with these hacks, the company is Kerrisdale Capital.

    The shorts must be very disappointed that their latest assault victim did not curl up and die. I think they bit off more than they could chew trying to take on a company with such a huge institutional position, mainly when Baupost Group owns nearly a quarter of the company. Now the market shorts are getting hit by the huge news from Amazon buying Whole Foods, so in all a very good week for the longs of the market and a pretty bad one for the shorts as most of the shorters were too scared to play with the momentum stocks in the tech sector where they could have made a small killing this week.

    The other stock that they have piled on to has been Tesla and they only yawned, scratched their nuts a little and then stabilized during all of the tech sector decline, down only 3% from the highs early last week, so again, not a good week for shorters.

    I still have not reviewed the short story in totality but what I did read is extremely suspect. To question the superiority of their technology against terrestrial alternatives is laughable. The other point they fail to mention is that VSAT is very big in defense and governmental agencies in general for secure communications. They down play that. Also they are stating that the new satellite is only for residential uses, that could or could not be correct. The inherent value of the satellite is still there regardless of the market that you use it for, whether they can compete with the other cable providers or not, they have multiple other markets that they could use the bandwidth for.

    Usually, the initial lawsuit will be brought by a small investor who will state they bought VSAT near the close of 6/12 at 71.50 and after the posting of the article their shares (typically less than 200 shares) have lost "x" amount of value. Then the short story writer will post another article, the price may drop an additional amount the "investor" hoping to average down will then purchase a secondary amount of stock at the new lower price, (usually less than 100 shares) and will allege wrong doing on the part of the company for the loss of $500. Then the sister law firms will start vying for the lead on the bigger lawsuits for losses over $100,000. The one benefit that we have is the huge institutional presence though that is no guarantee as these firms will also short the stock (using their current shares as collateral for a covered short position).

    The next thing that you have to be prepared for is the collaborative attacks which these guys have specialized in. Trucking stock that I own, has just gone through this as many others in the past three years. One short story writer will either write multiple (and compounding, as well as confounding) articles, then another short story writer will change some verbiage and essentially re-post the attack under their banner. Creating the perception that they have independently developed their own research and are "corroborating" what the other short stated in their gregarious article. Typically, these guys if they get enough of a bump down in the price will work with law firms who specialize in taking on share holder suits. They then go back and forth creating a false narrative that there is some form of wrong doing and that further enhances the shorts initial claims. Fortunately, the price on the initial attack seems rather muted so hopefully they will just go away, but be very, very wary. They will usually follow up with corresponding attacks on a bi-monthly or monthly schedule.

    If we are to go off the RSI then you could argue that a pull back next day or so could occur on VSAT before rallying up. Ive been struggling with this stock lately. Some of my other trades have been from awe.some.stocks which are working out pretty well.

    Congrats to longs, I got out before the launch, the risk (a ten dollar drop for failure) far outweighed the gain (looks to be about 2.50 for a successful launch). I will buy back in, but it will have to go back to the 63 - 64 range which it will eventually do as little news comes out. I think it is a great company and I have made some decent money trading it, just not willing to have dead money in between earnings reports.

    This will be a make or break two weeks for ViaSat. The earnings report tomorrow and a satellite launch next week will be pivotal to the future of the company. A good earnings report which shouldn't be too hard since the analysts seem to be rather conservative on their expectations which is simply amazing. Add on to that a successful satellite launch and this stock could see a major positive movement. The consensus earning of 28 cents per share is actually very conservative as it is lower than the past two fourth quarters. Then add the wide disparity of analysts from .14 cents to .44 cents, it could be either a major beat or a major miss, could be a very interesting stock tomorrow. Probably a good stock to bracket, it will either be up by 15% or down by 8%, as it has been in a very negative trend leading up to earnings.
