  • Babylon Up Almost 5% On Tel Aviv Stock Exchange Today! 0 comments
    Jul 20, 2009 12:22 PM | about stocks: PERI

     I have written a lot about Babylon and Incredimail, which are driven by the same fundamental business model: Google ad clicks and search. I am not sure what drove it, but Babylon (on Tel Aviv Stock Exchange) had a huge move today, closing up 4.59%. I can only assume that Tel Aviv is finally starting to catch up with the move in MAIL. MAIL will pay out its dividend 8 days from today to Shareholders of record as of July 13th. I wonder whether Babylon may follow the same path, given the cash on the balance sheet and the profits it is throwing off. See today's Babylon chart below.
