    No insiders sold. They all have restricted shares. Can not sell unless they file. And the filing is public record. So he's short and wants everyone to dump so he can cover at a lower price...

    The facts of Yippy's debt to Vivissimo are more accurately stated below.

     

    See article below:
    Yippy, Inc. Completes Debt Conversions on Highly Favorable Terms

     

    The Company has converted all material debt agreements on the balance sheet.
    Ft. Meyers, Fla. (PRWEB) October 19, 2011

     

    Yippy, Inc. (Pinksheets: YIPI) (http://www.yippy.com) ("Yippy" or the "Company"), providers of the world's fastest, family friendly educational search engine and web portal, reports today that in line with a previous public disclosure made on, April 25, 2011, the Company has entered into an agreement dated October 14, 2011 with Vivisimo, Inc., (“Vivisimo”) for a debt to equity conversion of two promissory notes totaling $5,000,000.00 (Five Million) dollars. Yippy has also paid its accrued interest obligations in full.

     

    The Company believes that the terms of the conversion negotiated are highly favorable for both shareholders and Company. 2.5 million Shares of restricted common stock are to be issued to Vivisimo at $2.00 per share to satisfy the Notes, which represents a very reasonable valuation of Yippy.

     

    “Since May 31, 2011 the company has converted $5.7 million in Convertible Notes at $2.00 per share. I think that says a lot about our future outlook, and will make raising capital much easier as the Company has converted all material debt agreements on the balance sheet,” stated Rich Granville, CEO, Yippy.

     

    Granville continues, “Our business has been public two years this month. It’s been a hard, tough road at times, but the people at the core of Yippy are giving it their all every day. We believe in what Yippy can be and expect Ad-tech NYC 2011 to be the launching pad for our products and Custom Search capabilities. I think the http://bit.ly/KvyHJD project has opened many eyes to how powerful customized “topic” oriented search products are. It is the quality of the results and our unique processes that make Yippy a superior product.”

    Braggo: With all due respect, have you even seen the recent PRs concerning M&As YIPI is presently involved in? You have taken significant liberty in asserting your assessment surrounding Yippy's agreement with Vivisimo, without supplying any references in support of your claims. These same liberties were also taken with your assertion that IBM "couldn't care less" about their stake in YIPI.

     

    It was nice to see your disclosure of the fact you are short selling YIPI. As you can see by our close today, the bulls are back in control of the stock. The fundamentals are SOLID. The float is approximately 8 MIL shares. And the likelihood that insiders sold today, is in my opinion, based on nothing but conjecture at this point.

     

    YIPI's recent news concerning merger with MuseGlobal, a leader of content integration, positions YIPI to compete with the big boys in the world of search by improving the ability to streamline searching in the rapidly expanding world wide web.

     

    "Big Data is a major problem for search engines. If you can't cluster search results and dynamically rank and normalize unlimited information sources whether it is a consumer search engine such as Bing or Google, or an enterprise model like HP/Autonomy, in my opinion you're out of the game of search in 3-5 years. The future is Data Virtualization or Data as a Service in the cloud,"

     

    "Big Data is a major problem for search engines. If you can't cluster search results and dynamically rank and normalize unlimited information sources whether it is a consumer search engine such as Bing or Google, or an enterprise model like HP/Autonomy, in my opinion you're out of the game of search in 3-5 years. The future is Data Virtualization or Data as a Service in the cloud," says Rich Granville, the YIPI CEO.

     

    "Google is far less effective today due to their index growing from 3 billion pages in 2003 to 50 billion in 2011. It is information overload, and clustering is the only logical answer to that problem.”

     

    "We are in a position to underprice and out-produce the competition by unimaginable numbers through our Data Virtualization model. We're talking 50% savings across the board for data services provided by companies such as HP/Autonomy. We have the finest programs, services and client attention available anywhere. Welcome to the Cloud," says Kristina Bivins of MuseGlobal, Inc.

     

    I am long YIPI.PK

     

    Note: YIPI.PK ticker was changed since they no longer trade on the pinksheets. YIPI began trading on the OTCQX in May 2012, thus the .PK should be removed.

    One last thing from JP2222
    Your DD is so far off it is laughable. Number one if you did any research at all instead of just looking at charts and thinking anything that rises is a P&D then you would have found out that RG wisely got an extension to May of 2013 on the non compete.
    So you are either very ignorant or just flat out lying either way you should be ashamed of yourself for posting such ill thought out and misleading BS.
    Had you posted this before the merger announcement of muse global and the purchase of Macte Labs then your seriously out of date, misleading numbers would have had validity. This is not the case and they are very wrong.

     

    Warning to anyone who is reading this. This guy showed up and knows not one thing about this company other than his technicals showed it to be over bought. So he did very little fact finding and posted some garbage. Notice he did not disclose how many shares short he is. Like a real expert would do.

     

    I have been buying this stock every two weeks in my 401 K so purchased some shares at .18. I currently own 40,000 shares and have no intention of selling. This is a fundamentally strong stock. Evidenced by the bullish sentiment in the comments on this piece of garbage article.

    Fort Myers, FL -

     

    Yippy, Inc. (YIPI) Affirms Company Actions and Status

     

    FORT MYERS, FL, June 14, 2012--Yippy, Inc. (OTCQX: YIPI) (http://www.yippy.com)("Yippy"or the"Company"), Chief Executive Officer reports to the shareholders the following:

     

    “The Company is rock solid, our merger and acquisitions are moving along perfectly. I see no issues and that fact is our phones are ringing and the industry is very excited about what we are offering. The customers are lining up,” stated Rich Granville CEO, Yippy Inc.

     

    “Additionally many shareholders have called and emailed regarding the obviously abusive short trading activity and I wanted to give a response to this matter. First, the Company has not entered into any type of financing that would require the sale of stock. We have only used $700K of our $2 million credit line with Magna. We are current with all obligations and we have sufficient access to capital.”

     

    “Yippy has 5.79 million shares in DTC, and these are the only Free Trading shares in the market. There are 8,040,000 free trading shares total. Approximately 2.24 million or 25% of the Company’s free trading stock is held in certificate form out of the market and will remain out of the market due to being locked up in an agreement till mid-2013. This high frequency shorting that has been occurring in our security the last couple of trading days will be looked into by me personally. I flew into NYC last night and will be getting to the bottom of this shortly,” concluded Granville.

     

    About Yippy Inc.
    Based in Fort Myers, Florida, Yippy, Inc. is a technology company that specializes in the development of search, data normalization,and aggregation through application service environments for consumer and enterprise markets.

    Author’s reply » Really funny, company with dismal track record, OTC-listed, no revenues, of course no earnings and nearly zero cash and a nearly worthless stock (0,25$ until end of April) prints more of worthless stock, buys two other privately-held companys nobody knows (no SEC-Filings, no earnings report) with its worthless stock (because they don´t have any cash) and - simsalabim - the combined company is worth > 100 Mio. $.
    Stock gets pumped like crazy and as soon as it gets dumped, its due to "abusive short trading activity". Like it, thats real life comedy which is always the best...

    I have a question for you. Why would the CEOs of the other 2 companies take stock and not cash? The float didn't increase. The shares are restricted. So the 2 CEOs made a major blunder? Or maybe they see there is something in yipi?

    Perhaps were some links between the companies before.
    You never know, but I know that YIPI has to bring evidence of profitability, it´s not the other way round. They earned not a single penny until today...

    Perhaps you do well to acquaint yourself with MuseGlobal's recent partnership with BA Insight.

     

    BA Insight is big time.

     

    I would not be surprised if the Yippy/MuseGlobal merger had something to do with MuseGlobal's partnership with BA Insight.

     

    Let's not forget the recent Macte Labs acquisition.

     

    This three headed monster is positioning itself for something larger than we know.

     

    Just my opinion.

     

    YIPI Long and Strong!!!

    Another question for you..if you don't mind. Forget stock price for a minute..do you think there is any value in yippy? I mean do you think another company would want what they have...the programs for high speed data? Do you really feel IBM does not care at yippy?
    And yippy does now owe vizimo 5mil. They gave them 2mil in stock. So the only debt they have is the 2m credit line which the CEO said the used only 700k. Thank you.

    Author’s reply » "Worth noting is that Richard Granville, CEO if Yippy, issued a press release mid-day stating that he had arrived in New York to personally look into the extreme short-selling that has been taking place on YIPI stock." --> LOL, where does he look exactly for the evil short sellers in New York? Times Square or some obscurer places? Perhaps he would be better off searching for some investors, which pump some money in his business...
    @HIS MONEY: BA Insight, as always there are no numbers given as far as possible revenues from the partnership are concerned. As always: Nice words, no substance...

    Braggo,

     

    If your price target on YIPI is $0.10 (or 0,10$ to you since you're obviously located outside of the US) why are you covering at this level and waiting for it to go back over $1.00 (or 1,00$ to you)?

     

    Don't have the courage of your own convictions?

    Author’s reply » Just risk/reward ratio, if you are for example 1.000 shares short from 2,00 and the stock falls to 0,60, you can realize profits of 1.400$ but have a maximum of 600$ in further profits left, so at some point the risk/reward ratio just gets too bad.
    The other point: Short-term oversold condition, rebound after huge fall is probable. Stocks seldom go down from 2,00 to 0,10 without bouncing.
    Funny again, that I have to defend my trading style after realizing a huge gain. Where have all the (pseudo)bulls gone, which were obviously wrong big time?

    Wow. Talk about having no personality. Paid pumper...I think not. I own about 2.5% of the float. U can do the math. My target price is takeover. I know you short stocks and rag on them so others will be afraid and sell. And then u cover at a much lower price. You are not doing anything against the law..legally.....moral... But good luck to you. Just don't get caught in your short position when major news is announced. Do you have a relative named Smitty by the way??

    The old "short card" attempt to obfuscate the facts of utter incompetence combined with Ceo's buddies dumping stock and simply buying some back after "screwing the pooch".

     

    Pretty basic stuff. "High frequency short selling" ?!?!?!? or high frequency brain damage.

     

    Will not take that long to find out.
