  • YY: Do You Know What You Own? [View article]
    Ha...I don't know CFA designation does any good to somebody who cheats investors. If anything, the smarter that person is, the more concerned investors should be...I have filed complaints with the SEC on insider trading as well as potential of fraud. We'll see if the commission polices the situation or not. From my perspective, the Giant's class action is not a lapse of judgement..investors were intentionally duped.

    I find it utterly stupid to compare Rick's with YY. Rick's operates physical strip clubs while YY operates virtual stuff. When you go to rick's, u get actual action...on YY, it's all virtual stuff. It's a joke to compare those two to start with. Secondly, the key here is YY claims itself to be a social network company, not a pool of strip clubs..Investors certainly should comp it with other social networking firms rather than a strip club operator. Anyone with half a brain should see the difference here and I find it pointless to further argue the issue with you. Feel free to invest in YY and I'll happily bet against you...

  • YY: Do You Know What You Own? [View article]
    Lets debunk each claim of yours. The IPO book manager means very little as we all know. Longtop was bookrun by Goldman when it went public and it turned out to be a complete scam.

    Next, let's move onto the auditor. YY is audited by PricewaterhouseCoopers Zhong Tian CPAs Limited Company...this track record of this company is in fact incredibly spotty. Among its auditing clients, CMED was a notorious fraud. AMBO also turned out to be a complete scam and it is another client of Zhong Tian. Wonter Auto Tech, WATG, is another client of PWC Zhongtian...You should do a little more research before coming out saying YY's auditor has not been found any accounting problems in China...YY's auditor has A LOT of accounting problems in China!

    I have stayed in the hottest channel and I believe a substantial amount of those gifts purchased came from YY affiliates, or tuo. The real legitimate customers are much smaller than what appears. The company overstates its revenue number to include virtual spending by its affiliates...that's the issue here

    Moreover, this is a stupid argument to say that because there are a lot of rich people therefore people are spending money on YY..A lot of other things you can do with 30 million RMB such as buying a few ferraris for fun...

    Insider trading at YY is clearly evident..The CFO should get investigated for leaking numbers...

    I want to draw investors attention to this specific part of YY's earnings conference call. The analyst community is indeed bewildered by YY's wide margin earnings and revenue beat given the lack of specific traction or marketing activities in the quarter. YY posted revenue number over 20% ahead of expectation when the underlying business was expected to perform inline. Tim at MS asked the question: how did you do it?

    The CFO's response is elusive at best but the specific he did give raises significant issues with YY's business model and the high likelihood of revenue fraud. The CFO stated that Guild is an organization on YY's platform and YY members look at the rankings and therefore compete for the rankings. The very existence of such organization raises questions about their independence. Is YY's management or insiders involved in any way shape or form manipulating the revenue? YY's revenue beat is completely bewildering...unexplai... likely fraudulent.

    Finally, investors should take notice in the trading of YY shares. Clearly a lot of insider trading is going on in the stock. The run up in the stock ahead of a substantial earnings beat is almost unprecedented.

  • Illegal Products Could Spell Big Trouble At Lumber Liquidators [View article]
    Oh I am totally happy to hit and smear a company that sells consumer toxic flooring products. This company should go away and that makes the world a better place...The sample I tested probably went to somebody's home where kids are playing on the floor.

    Also why is this coming from an equity analyst instead of a formal press release from the Company. Btw, I have not been contacted by the company....I may ask for refund on the box I spent 120 dollar buying from them...

  • Illegal Products Could Spell Big Trouble At Lumber Liquidators [View article]

    Thanks for the comment. I would agree with you if the lab test was merely an isolated incident and LL is widely praised by consumers in general. The situation, however, is the complete opposite. As I noted in the article, the formaldehyde issue should not be new for LL's management. There has been extensive amount of document complaints online with regards to formaldehyde complaints related specifically to Lumber Liquidators. You could not find the similar complaints if you search for Lowes and Home Depot products. They are extremely telling and would make mockery of the response you suspected the management may post. Frankly, the lab test is merely a way to certify LL as major violator of the relevant laws and regulations. It can now be presented to the regulators to show, in addition to consumer complaints, the products sold at LL are factually noncompliant. That is important. Also, you may have underestimated the ease at which 210 million dollar worth of inventory could be tested...

  • UniPixel: Hey Citron, Where's The Beef? [View article]
    The reason they've been so evasive in answering the real key question is they DO NOT have a viable product, period. They want to make investors believe they do so they can raise capital from the market.

    Kodak was not mentioned even once. I challenge you to cite the specific statement that's embeded in the prospectus. Where is Kodak in the prospectus????There's none, zero.

    1. Nicely adding those conditions. And come on don't eat your own words. Last message you were saying I lied to everybody and should be using the touch panel numbers??? Who's waving a web of lies here Scott?

    2. Scott, you may be paying the wall street journal to read the wall street journal. Does the wall street journal have a financial interest to help you? Ben may have ties to Cambrios and Nanoforge, but it's a long stretch to conclude he is biased against Unipixel. You keep on saying its a huge market there could be a lot of winners. Why does Ben need to badmouth Unipixel?

    3. Just because the stock went up 500% in a few months does not mean the company is not a scam. Look at all the past scams. Stocks are frequently up a few hundred percent before they completely collapse. What's the point of doing any analysis if you can conclude a stock is a great investment just because it's up a lot? You are better than this come on.

    I agree you should stop responding because the more you say, the less sensible you sound. I'm here to break your streak of making nonsensical intelligent sounding statements. Somebody is hurting a lot of people. It's shameful to be deceiving investors and promoting a scam to the investing public. I'm frankly disgusted at this point.

    Scott, you are completely WRONG on this one. It is complete nonsense. If they put UniBoss into a JV under a 50/50 term, the mgmt need to disclose that investors before selling shares. Also, entering into a 50/50 agreement with Kodak would be no different to selling half of UniBoss to Kodak as far as I'm concerned. While may not be 100% accurate, Citron's not wrong in saying Unipixel sold half of UniBoss to Kodak because that's what a JV is. Further, it's no speculation if it's confirmed with Kodak's bankruptcy adviser. The management needs to tell everybody what kind of deal they signed with Kodak and they absolutely need to have done it before selling shares.

    You've got to be kidding me that this management is doing an excellent job abiding by the laws in terms of their filings. They sold shares without telling people they gave up half of economics on their only viable product. Investors thought they were buying 100% of UniBoss when they subscribed to the offering, period. What they are doing is illegal.

    Btw, last earnings call, Reed said it takes him two weeks to get a line to start working. It's a breeze for them to ramp up production and all's left is to buy machines...if those statements were true, why don't they just buy machines? What's the point of the JV. They have been lying all along. More, in the call with the ecosystem partner, the management gave zero roadmap to revenue opportunities. Nobody has even ordered their product, where's the rush to give up half of their awesome revolutionizing technology?? The story does not add up no matter how you look at it. You'd either have to be the most gullible person on earth or something much worse to be promoting the story as all's sunshine at this point.

    You need to stop promoting your speculation and tell the company to put out a press release to fully disclose their relationship with Kodak. Investors deserve to know what they bought! Is it half of UniBoss economics or 100% of Uniboss economics. It's black and white.

    GRA, it's the management's responsibility to clarify for investors who bought into their well-time secondary offering. Did they enter into a 50-50 JV with Kodak on manufacturing Uniboss and splitting economics half half? Citron seems to think that is the case from speaking with Alvarez. If this were true, management selling shares without disclosing is incredibly problematic and disgusting. Investors were also told as recent as last week that the management has the capacity to ramp up production without raising any additional financing. It's purely laughable to say Alvarez is biased. Kodak will be effectively owned by the creditors after it come out of bankruptcy...

    The key question here is simple. For the investors who bought into the offering on Wednesday night, did they buy 50% of Uniboss or did they buy 100% of Uniboss economics? I bet you investors bought into the deal thinking they were buying 100% of Uniboss but it appears they are really only buying into 50%. Who's minding the gate? How could the company not put out a formal press release to address this? GRA, I don't think you have the capacity to address this issue. So call Reed and tell him to clarify!
