  • Will BlackBerry 10 Put Research In Motion Back In Motion? [View article]
    The Blackberry 10 is expected to compete with Microsoft's first Windows Phone 8, however it has also been certified for Federal Information Processing Standards as the most secure smartphone on the market. Combined with 8x8's Virtual Office for Government, it will provide government agencies with a cost-effective way to deploy and manage secure distributed phone systems.

  • 8x8, Incorporated's CEO Discusses F2Q13 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    Each time Bryan Martin opens his mouth about some non-disclosed global partner, he loses credibility and the company loses significant marketcap. He's an engineer and should have stayed in his cubicle designing circuits and filing for patents. Perhaps if he had some kind of game plan and kept investors better informed. I give him a zero for public relations and doubt Cramer will invite him back on CNBC after his company face-planted following their announcement of yet another profitable quarter, prompting him to disappear from public view. I consider him a failure and feel he should step down and allow a real leader to take the helm.

  • 8x8 (EGHT): FQ4 EPS of $0.05 beats by $0.01. Revenue of $25.3M (+37% Y/Y) beats by $0.3M. Shares -0.7% AH. (PR)  [View news story]
    October 2011, the company gave everyone a BIG FAT DISAPPOINTING EARNINGS SURPRISE and their stock DUMPED CONTINUOUSLY FOR 9-MONTHS until the following July when they posted errr questionable great earnings again. I recommend a Rinse-N-Repeat investment strategy.

  • 8X8 Inc: Why You Should Buy This Growing Performer [View article]
    Didn't they recently vote to double the outstanding shares from 100M to 200M and when will that go into effect? Will this not drop their EPS by at least 50%? Also, I question the 4.1M in stock being used to pay their employees, following a class action suit where they were forced to settle and paid it all out in stock. Salame Mansour has been selling a ton of shares apparently endlessly, so this is also troubling. I mean, how many trusts can one person have? What happened to make so many of their directors resign and why were they forced to lose the rather large amount of options they had been paid with? Their earnings were great, but only following a merger with Contactual where they paid for the whole thing in stock and then their stock is suddenly up like a pump-n-dump parabola on the 100 day, so it all sounds very fishy to me ..... I am thinking there is a BIG intra-day drop coming. That is my opinion. I have no idea why they would post the meaning of a 1-3 Reverse Split on their investor FAQ's, yet sort of hide it on the drop down menu??

    Wow, everyone did a great job of pumping up this stock. I hope the bottom doesn't fall out before I can get my sell order through.

  • Vivus (VVUS) shares are predictably chomping at the bit premarket, surging 13.3% after the FDA yesterday approved its weight-loss drug Qnexa/Qsymia. Shares had fallen sharply prior to the announcement. Also this morning, rivals Arena (ARNA) -5.9% and Orexigen Therapeutics (OREX) +3.2%.  [View news story]
    If a fat person on the pill cannot lose the estimated 3% body fat after taking the pill consistently for 3 WEEKS, they said taking it any longer wasn't going to help. wtfo? I'm taking my profits.

  • Xoma's Past, Present and Future [View article]
    This one is flying under the radar. Watch for the huge spike which is coming and then the continued rise over the next few months during the "correction". There is no questioning their BCE technology and another military contract is on the horizon.

    Follow what happens to BankUnited to see what is going to happen to your shares Gloryfet. I am hoping to recover my loss, but so far I have only continued to lose more the longer the bankruptcy goes on.
