Think about what I said, was it so unreasonable? I never said it was his legal obligation, just moral.

Re: Consider Investment in Sierra Wireless - SWIR

Thanks, Vic. The first SA article that you referenced stated the following:

Sierra Wireless looks cheap at a trailing P/E ratio of 10.5.

The adj EPS for the past 4 quarters was 0.11, 0.10, 0.02, and 0.08. That's 31 cents. [more]

Re: CALL

Mykie,

Yes, if they can grow or even maintain their current level of business then you should do ok with the stock. I certainly would still be careful and limit your investment.....if it were me I would not invest more than 5% in this type [more]

Re: CALL

Mykie,

I sold my position over a month ago at a loss. I am skeptical that they have a competitive advantage as what they do does not seem unique to me. I don't like investing on the hopes of a buyout.

Re: aiocf revenue growth

1) When he says "by 2016" does he mean by the beginning of 2016 (end of 2015) or by the end of 2016? That is a 4 quarter difference.

I think their goal since their IPO was to reach $500M in sales for their [more]

Re: AEYE up 13% ahead of conference call

AEYE up 10cents (13%) ahead of quarterly conference call on Monday. Anybody see any other news.

I didn't see any news but any increase or decrease on a dollar value of $250K worth of shares traded is meaningless.
