    I believe the pullback from the high at ~18 reached earlier this year presents another low risk entry point (especially with the recent breakout above the 50 and 200 DMA) however I agree going forward the gains will not be as large as the one since my initial report.

    Here are a few solutions. Try them in this order.

    1. Although you said you did not receive "actual assistance" from SA, I would suggest trying again. In my experience SA has been extremely helpful in answering any questions I had. Here is the contact page:

    2. A simple but effective approach is to start from scratch by signing out of SA, closing the browser, running CCleaner and starting over.

    3. If you are using the NoScript add-on in Firefox, you MUST "allow" all SA scripts.

    4. Be patient (probably not the advice you wanted) as there may be software glitches occasionally (I have no knowledge of this - just saying in general). If this is the case, I'm sure the SA team is on it and it should be resolved soon.

    I agree. Although ABTL is now a bigger fish, I still think it gets swallowed up as the valuation and growth story is too compelling.

    From a trading perspective, ever since ABTL was mentioned here on SA (back in May before the stock quadrupled), the best times to buy have been on the pullbacks (as opposed to the breakouts). This is one of those times.

    $7 billion implied value for Autotrader after Cox takeover supports higher valuation for ABTL (http://bit.ly/19S9h2X).

    The price action YTD is proof positive that trend following in equities (especially microcaps) is a high expectancy strategy. See research by Blackstar funds on this subject.

    I made many of the exact same points supporting this investment thesis six months ago when the stock was at $4.21 and it is now at 11.79 or 2.8x higher.

    ABTL almost reached $10 last week driven by strong 3Q earnings. Total return since publication of ~127%.

    I agree with everything you said - we just have different trading styles whereas mine is more short term oriented. I agree ABTL is still sig undervalued even after the recent rise.

    I would take profits here at ~7 as the stock is very extended from the steady up trend line. Of course the instant you're filled on your sell order ABTL will probably announce they've sold to a larger peer for a sig premium.

    Can't find anything either yet. The stock is up on heavy volume.
