  • On Track Innovations: Looking Ahead To 2015 [View article]
    What's the reason for the 6-9 months delay? Then Q2 and Q3 next year should look very good.

  • Shares Of Mattersight Are Poised To Triple [View article]
    I've learned a lot from you. Thanks for sharing and contributing, regardless if you contribute more here at SA or not. The knowledge you have shared freely here and at PTT on your methodology is invaluable. The info regarding stocks was much more useful before the PTT subscription started, but this makes good business sense otherwise you are cannibalizing your own business.

    Maybe your initial intent was to pay-it-forward and there was and is a lot of that I'm sure, but it also seems you have benefited greatly from your work here on SA too. You got many subscribers and your articles helped move stock prices up short term. Your public articles on TPCS moved it from .70 to its triple of 1.20. It seems it has been a win-win and maybe that balance has shifted lately, so it isn't worth your time here anymore. But my guess is we will see articles from you here and there as it helps you and PTT and SA readers as well. Win-win as it should be.

    Also I think it is too bad that a few bad apples spoil it for everyone. The people who don't appreciate your work here are in the minority, but they take up the most energy and time. I would just skip over their messages and not respond unless it is pertinent to the stock at hand. Like you said: "You got to have tough skin in this business."

    Thanks for everything.

    If I was short I think the risk/reward is now against you. It could still go lower, but too many retail investors that respond irrationally to any news of ApplePay, could make this spike with any PR they release. Of course then it might be another good short, but now seems odds are against shorts.

    My confusion is why was guidance lowered if all these sales are going to happen due to Apple Pay and liability shifting to merchants in next 12 months. Did I misunderstand CC? May go long for a short spike if price drops a little lower.

  • 3D printing industry hampered by regulatory concerns [View news story]
    Does this mean GEs fuel nozzles are in jeopardy of being manufactured via 3D or delayed for a few years? Was thinking of entering a new long position in Arcam and have small position in SGLB.

    Coming to the same conclusions. Anybody have any other info. I sold at 1.98 the day before dilution. Pure luck. Not sure I will reenter or not.

    A lot of talk about Applepay, but not much action yet. My investment theory is that many retail stores will want to upgrade their point-of-sale terminals with the liability of fraudulent charges moving from CC companies to merchants within a year, but I don't know what kind of market share OTIV could get, but even a small percentage would do a lot for their Earnings. I hope management uses this opportunity to market their brand name like crazy. Still a little nervous about what is going on behind the scenes with management. I got the impression they are hiding a bad quarter by talking about Applepay so much and the exciting future that may or may not happen.

  • Update: Why Investors Should Buy Crossroads On The Dip [View article]
    This is my question, if risk is 50/50 on Marksman hearing, why is Jeff Eberwein buying this stock for over a year and has amassed a lot of shares. Why is he so confident on Marksman outcome? Any info on patent strength and infringement is really the key here, but I don't know enough about such things to understand what I'm reading. I know Ruerd Heeg has listed a bunch of the patents in an instablog, but even that makes my head spin. I am long CRDS because of Jeff Eberwein massive purchase of stock. Lets hope he is being objective in the evaluation of likely outcomes of hearing.

  • Riding High On AeroGrow [View article]
    I still don't think that MJ is a major factor with this stock. It was a factor in retail investors mind in March, which drove the price up so fast. (and the low float) But it will be years if ever that all states will legalize MJ and I have heard MJ is too big to grow on any AERO device, so I think this investment should not be based on any hopes of MJ. I can't see AERO manufacturing and selling a base unit which is seperate from the lighting unit and to have consumer hang the light from their ceilings themselves and connect them. Plus Amazon reviews I read sound like supplies are expensive. I think it is novel device many will buy and use for a few months, but not for years, due to costs. What do you guys think. (I am long since $4 after a loss from $9-$5. Will probably sell if it reaches $9-$10 again.)

  • Shares Of JAKKS Pacific Are Poised To Triple [View article]
    Thanks for everyone's input on this one. I got same impressions from CC. I did pick some up on the pull back as well. Don't know about a tripple, but I can see a double from these levels. Institutional ownership is interesting as well.

    Jaret, I respect your opinion very much. I always read your articles and have money in many of your picks. Do you have any thoughts on JAKK. I think Wall Street doesn't understand the popularity of the Frozen movie among young kids and underestimates the impact on this coming holiday toy sales. Will reevaluate after Christmas sales numbers come through.

  • Attunity's Maestro Promises To Make Sweet Music (And Money) [View article]
    Thanks. I have learned this the hard way these last few months. I did very well in the beginning (a year ago) and now all but a few of my stocks are down big time. Do you take some off the table when stock rises a certain percent? If so how much? In the past I would never sell, because stock hadn't reached my perceived "full value". Now I'm switching and taking some off the table as it rises and adding if it drops significantly to support levels. If it works well, may consider just swing trading. I think on most of my stocks I would have made more money swing trading.
