Velti (VELT -8.3%) is off sharply after receiving a downgrade to Neutral from Janney, which cites ongoing weakness in Europe. The mobile ad agency, which reports after the close on Nov. 14, derived 55% of its Q2 revenue from Europe (including the U.K.). Americas sales, which made up 29% of revenue, are growing much faster.

    just b/c Europe is having ongoing weakness doesn't mean that VELT will see weakness. The company is not dependent on GDP growth in Europe.


    Why people follow these analysts are beyond me.

    Well, I wonder why this is being killed. What happened to the $10-$13 run up everyone was talking about prior to 11-13-12, which is now 11-14-12. It's very scary for the ones that have been here since it started taking off from $4.99.

    Rockitman, Let's see what's scary:


    Last quarter: Revenue of $59 million, up 73% and up 13% sequentially from $52 million.


    Revenue less 3rd party costs (Gross Margin) of $38 million, up 60% (and resulting in a gross margin of 64% as a percentage of revenue).


    Adj EBITDA of $6.2 million, up 100% (!) from $3.1 million year over year, and up 35% sequentially from $4.6 million!!!


    Sorry, I don't see what's scary.
