  • Jive Software Remains Socially Awkward to Investors

    By Mark Holder - August 1, 2013 | Tickers: JIVE, CRM, NOW

    When Jive Software (NASDAQ: JIVE) went public back at the end of 2011, it had so much promise for providing a social platform for businesses. The stock shot up to $28 due to the excitement that social media brought at the time. After a weak quarterly report, the stock plunged over 20% to end back around $13. Stocks such as Facebook plummeted as well back in early 2012, but most more »

  • This Company Provides Constructive Assistance To Its Customers

    By Mark Lin - July 16, 2013 | Tickers: NOW, TXTR, WDAY

    There are two fatal mistakes that you could make with a high flying growth stock. One of the mistakes is that future growth prospects are over-rated; another mistake is that the company does not have the ability to fend off competition from competitors also seeking to participate in this growth. You are not making the same two mistakes with this stock. Listed in June, Textura (NYSE: TXTR) is a provider more »

  • Workday Is Worth How Much?

    By Mark Holder - March 14, 2013 | Tickers: MM, CRM, NOW, WDAY

    Demand for software companies that cater to business clients remains strong, but not enough workdays exist in a year to make Workday (NYSE: WDAY) attractive at current market multiples. The company went public in mid-October at highly unappealing multiples that left limited upside ever since.

    The provider of enterprise cloud-based applications for customers to manage critical business functions trades at around 25 times fiscal year 2014 (ending January 2014) revenue more »

  • Noteworthy Upgrades on Thursday

    By Brian Nichols - February 14, 2013 | Tickers: ARUN, NOW, FIRE, WLL

    Sometimes an analyst issues a revised outlook or changes his/her rating, but does not inform investors of the reasons behind the call. These typically move stocks on the call alone; the price target and outlook. However, some analysts provide detailed reasons; these are the outlooks that should be noted and used as part of your fundamental research. Therefore, I am taking a look at such outlooks and determining the more »

  • Three Stocks Seeing High Short Interest, But Two Are Presenting Value

    By Brian Nichols - December 27, 2012 | Tickers: MLNX, NOW, TDC

    It always puzzles me when shorts surround themselves around certain stocks that have seemingly strong fundamental performance. At the same time, there are stocks where a short position is completely logical. With that being said, I am looking at three stocks that have seen a recent increase in short activity, two of which are illogical and one that looks to be a great short investment.

  • 5 Reasons Why Fender Pulled Its IPO

    By Soroush Pour - August 1, 2012 | Tickers: FB, KYAK, NOW, LVB

    The date was marked, the offer price was set, and the ticker symbol was chosen, but that did not stop Fender Musical Instruments from pulling its initial public offering earlier this month.  Despite the troubles of Facebook’s IPO, this move came as a surprise to most investors, as we’ve recently seen a number of successful transitions to the secondary markets (here’s our Top 3 hottest examples).  In more »

  • 3 Hot Tech IPOs you May Have Missed

    By Soroush Pour - July 30, 2012 | Tickers: EXPE, GOOG, KYAK, OWW, PANW, NOW

    Prior to Facebook’s disastrous initial public auction, “going public” had been viewed as a relatively glamorous step in a company’s lifecycle, at least in the eyes of the average market onlooker.  Yet, an IPO is not a one-size-fits-all process that works for all private companies, as we’ve passionately discussed before.  Over the past month, there have been a few notable IPOs in the technology industry, though the more »

  • IPO: It's Possibly Overpriced?

    By Palwasha Saaim - July 6, 2012 | Tickers: AVP, EQM, FB, NOW, TSRO

    Buffett warns investors to not invest in IPOs. His justification? IPOs are likely overpriced! While this notion stands valid in the case of one of the biggest IPOs of this decade, Facebook (NASDAQ: FB) it may not hold true universally. The fundamental cause of an overpriced IPO is 'investor sentiments'. Excess demand for a hot issue with a large intangible asset base that makes valuation difficult, can cause its IPO to be overpriced. But not all issues are met with the same investor overconfidence and overhype. Find out here about three such recent IPOs, one new upcoming IPO to avoid and one to consider. 

  • How the Individual Investor Can Cash in on IPOs

    By Thomas J Lavan III - July 5, 2012 | Tickers: FB, GS, JPM, NES.DL, NOW | Editor's Choice

    A calamitous June ended Friday with an exclamatory punctuation that saw all major American indices close up better than two and a half percent as Germany kind of sort of agreed to a bailout of its beleaguered EU colleagues. Stocks catapulted to the best June in 10 years even as German finance minister Schaeuble attempted to temper market enthusiasm by reinforcing Merkel’s “As long as I live there will more »
