  • Update: Retractable Technologies Wins In Syringe Antitrust Suit [View article]
    I don't think there is a straight answer to your question, but there is a possibility that it will be taxed as ordinary income.

  • TomTom News Puts Auto Navigation Systems, Competitor Garmin Under Microscope [View article]
    I think that TomTom has to embrace Telematics (fleet management solutions) and develop a new revenue stream such as Location-Based Advertising. Automotive is too cyclical.

  • Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory: When Management Acts For Management's Benefit [View article]
    If you believe in your froyo franchise business you buy shares and not sell them. This was a big disappointment for me and I guess also for other investors.

    Seeing management selling like crazy and then say twice that they don't comment on insider sales at the conference call, doesn't give me a good feeling.

    I think there is value in their chocolate business and their franchise business. In 2012 I even wrote an article about the company.

    I even own some U-Swirl stock. What I don't like is the fact that management is not shareholder's friendly the way I would like to see it (why not invest in your business).

    Why not explain in detail what your plans are with the frozen yogurt business?
    That I mean with transparancy.

  • Processes To Question When Looking At Bearish Articles On Chinese Small Cap Stocks [View article]
    Most shorters just try something and hope that it sticks. The majority of US-listed China small caps doesn't have the financial resources and professionalism to respond adequately. That's why a number of them decided to delist their stock or go dark.

    That's why I think the SEC or government has to do something against dishonest short attacks, because they hurt the average shareholder/investor.

    The Volkswagen deal is important for TomTom but the real deal would be if they can get a big US car manufacturer on board. If you look to competitor Telenav (TNAV),
    http://bit.ly/1u3BYkv you see that an important revenue stream comes from location-based advertising. This could also be a growth area for TomTom.

    The majority of TomTom's and Garmin's revenue comes from the Consumer space, so that's why I took Garmin as comp. Telematics and Automotive are still too little and hardly contribute to TomTom's bottom line.

    One of the best articles I have read regarding US-listed China small caps. Chapeau!

    Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory leaves investors with a lot of questions.


    Why the company doesn't have a decent investor's presentation on their website?


    Why not present a detailed plan for their frozen yogurt business?
    The roll-up strategy is just a fancy phrase. Investors want answers to questions, such as: One brand strategy or multi-brand approach? Why not look for a stronger financial partner?


    RMCF is definitely no Starbucks!

    We had also a considerable amount of shares more than one year ago, but we sold our position. Management sucks and is not aggressive enough with their franchise business. Also it is not clear what they want with frozen yogurt business. No clear path, no strategy.

    The best thing would be is that they are taken private completely or taken-over by a competitor.

    I think a healthy development. The new auditor is better equipped to audit foreign firms because of their international connections.
