  • Is This Trio of Fading Accessory Makers Doomed?

    By Leo Sun - July 18, 2013 | Tickers: LOGI, SKUL, ZAGG

    Every time a popular, game-changing product hits the market, there are companies that piggyback on its success with less ambitious products. When video game consoles arrived, companies were eager to make controllers and other accessories. For personal computers, companies produced mice, keyboards and speakers. For smartphones and tablets, they created a variety of protective cases, Bluetooth keyboards, and headphones.

    Yet what happens to these accessory makers when their core product more »

  • Can Logitech Survive the PC’s Demise?

    By Sam Mattera - July 17, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, LOGI, ZAGG

    Logitech (NASDAQ: LOGI) isn't traditionally thought of as a PC company. And that’s fair -- it doesn't make PCs.

    Yet its business is deeply intertwined with the PC market. Logitech is one of the largest makers of PC peripherals, including mice, keyboards, speakers and webcams.

    The company knows it has issues, and has admitted that it’s working to transition its business to one centered around new, non-PC more »

  • A Couple of Classic Value Traps

    By Nathaniel Matherson - July 1, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, SKUL, ZAGG

    Don't always buy low, sometimes even beaten up stocks deserve to go lower.

  • Slipping Off the Shoulders of Giants

    By Leo Sun - April 10, 2013 | Tickers: GLW, ZAGG

    There was a time when ZAGG’s (NASDAQ: ZAGG) simple business of protective cases and skins for mobile devices seemed brilliant. ZAGG rode on the coattails of the success of Apple and Google Android devices, while peddling high-margin protective gear and accessories.

    Although the South Salt Lake, Utah-based company started out creating thin protective coverings, branded as invisibleSHIELDs, it began offering headphones in 2008, followed by a hybrid case that more »

    Every once in awhile I come across a stock where you just have to scratch your head and say "huh?".  That stock for me is Zagg (NASDAQ: ZAGG).  Ya, I know what you're thinking.  The stock hasn't gone anywhere in awhile despite 30% quarterly year over year growth.  And yes, I know, Corning (NYSE: GLW) has developed a scratch resistant glass that is supposed to render Zagg's more »

  • How to Make a Company Disappear 101

    By Michael Carter - February 7, 2013 | Tickers: GLW, GME, ZAGG | Editor's Choice

    In 1983, legendary magician and illusionist, David Copperfield, made the Statue of Liberty disappear instantly in what is still today one of the greatest and most memorable tricks of all time.  In the stock market, there have been companies that have made others disappear nearly as fast by either a revolutionizing product or a superior business idea.  Other companies simply go away because their business model no longer fits in more »

  • Dell and a Tale of Two Mobile Stock Baskets

    By John Fisher - February 5, 2013 | Tickers: BIDU, DELL, GOOG, KEYN, MM, QIHU, YHOO, ZAGG

    It's kind of sad to see Dell (NASDAQ: DELL) being taken private and like an elephant, leaving the pack of public hardware and software companies, to go die in the forest alone and away from its companions that would otherwise stand in a circle around it, mourning it, until it finally expires.

    This is what's happening to some of the old pillars of the Internet renaissance such as more »

    When consumers buy a new tablet or smartphone, the very first thing they do is decide whether or not to buy insurance for it. The second thing they do is buy a protective screen for their new device, and a case to protect the product. And that is where ZAGG (NASDAQ: ZAGG) comes in.

  • A Foolish Call on ZAGG

    By Brian Nichols - September 29, 2012 | Tickers: AAPL, ZAGG

    One of the more controversial companies in the market is Zagg (NASDAQ: ZAGG), and on Friday the company’s stock rallied 6.36%, while the market traded lower. There was no news from the company to entice such a foolish rally. There were no upgrades, increases in guidance, or anything else, with the exception of rumors or speculation that ZAGG products may soon find itself in Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) stores more »

  • 3 Holiday Short Squeeze Plays

    By Karen Rogers - September 14, 2012 | Tickers: GME, JCP, ZAGG

    Selling a stock short is a lot like bungee jumping—it’s great so long as the line doesn’t snap or the market turn against you.

    The problem with short selling is that sooner or later, no matter how terrible the company may be, the stock will bounce back up due either to a new bull rally or even a “dead cat bounce” before the stock resumes its downward more »

  • These Stocks are Set to be Systemically Rewarded by Mobile

    By John Fisher - September 4, 2012 | Tickers: AAPL, BIDU, FB, GOOG, MSFT, MM, QIHU, YNDX, ZAGG

    As market participants, we usually talk about systemic risk but rarely talk about systemic reward. We can consider systemic reward as the potential for massive growth and construction of new revenue and innovation for a particular sector that is largely unanticipated.

    Mobile has taken many by surprise as mobile apps have become the new 'websites' and mobile devices the new 'laptops'. Some companies such as Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) and Google more »

    By Michael Carter - July 28, 2012 | Tickers: AAPL, MSFT, PG, SMT, ZAGG

    My company uses SMART Boards that are produced by Smart Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: SMT).  We have these boards on every floor of the building and I’m guessing we have at least 100 of these boards of various models throughout the company.  They are used for meeting presentations, but mostly the projection capability is the only feature used to present PowerPoint slides to the audience.  However, when I saw SMT more »

  • 3 Shorts About to be Squeezed

    By Kyle Farrah - July 23, 2012 | Tickers: AAPL, KO, SKUL, SODA, ZAGG

    Occasionally stocks that are growing earnings consistently year over year will see their prices tank due to overly skeptical short sellers. When this happens the stock falls far below a reasonable value, and any positive news or other catalyst such as earnings will force shorts to buy back shares they sold short (cover their shorts) and the stock will skyrocket higher, as more short covering begets more short covering, until more »
