In tandem with its Q1 results, magicJack (CALL) announces Peter Russo is being replaced as CFO by Jose Gordo, who prior to recently joining the company co-founded an investment firm (but apparently left after two years). Russo will remain with the company as a consultant. magicJack is guiding for 2013 revenue of $155M-$160M, which compares with 2012 revenue of $158.4M - no consensus forecast exists. No proceeds were generated from put sales during Q1, but a $1M fair value loss was recorded on put option holdings. Shares -5.4% AH. (PR)

    They are working hard to raise every red flag that can possibly be raised. I suppose it is now just a game of hot potato as to who they can convince to hold the important executive positions when it all goes to hell.

    I don't see this the way P. Marlowe does at *all*. As I know/understand it, Russo's replacement with Gordo was planned back when Vento became CEO. As far as projected future revenue/earnings go, I see this company attempting to "manage" its stock much the same way that Apple did for so many years - namely, by deliberately keeping their forecasts low so as to ensure a more steady upward stock climb when actual earnings increases are released; in any event, price is actually *up* on today's news.

    I use Magic Jack at my home, office and Beachhouse. The call clarity is just as good as Ma bell. I have only had one problem 1.5 years at my home and it was fixed in a half a day. Did you know how much money I save every year? Lots! Try it you will not regret it. MagicJack wireless will be out in two weeks with lots of ports, I plan on buying a few to replace the ones I have.
